So I was having a crappy day today - too many sick friends out in the blogosphere, work is just ridiculous, and I just didn't feel well. Well, when I got home I saw there was a package on the front porch - I was very excited. I got there and couldn't believe it - it was the hairy blanket that we got from Peggy! I was so surprised it was here already - and boy were the kitties excited! I went from crappy day to good day! So first off, here are the pictures of the kitties exploring the package, checking out the blanket and trying out the awesome toys with it (Barney stole the package before I could open them - plus he also loved the box!!) Kirzon has claimed it as his own already (although I am thinking they will share it eventually). It is perfect because it has little silver hairs mixed in, which remind me of the little white guard hairs he has in his black fur. He is sitting on it next to me right now.
So I also have some other pictures, which I had planned to post originally. They are of Barney sitting by the small trees I put up (that is all I have done so far as far as the decorations go). He is not supposed to be up there - he is being naughty by doing so. And since we missed Alfie Marshall's gotcha day we told him that Barney would do something naughty just for him. Barney looks like he is being good there, but he was biting the tasty trees for a long time before and after that.
Also, I had to mention one more Barney story - he is getting very smart. The kitties all get their food on paper plates, because we had a bout of chin acne last year, but the paper plates are light weight so they move when they eat their food (it is the squishy canned stuff - the crunchy is in a glass bowl). I have always hoped they would figure out that they could put their foot on the plate to hold it still but none had. Until now. Barney has totally figured it out. I haven't gotten a pcture yet but will try to do so.
Also we will probably not have a big post tomorrow because I have a big tribute for Floyd on Wednesday. It is VERY long but I think you will enjoy it.
