So, we got the package after Trixie was here - so she was able to do a lot of meeting and inspecting that way. When the package was closed it wasn't too interesting but as soon as I cut it open everyone had to start inspecting it - especially Barney (you can see he stood on it in the pictures). As soon as it was open the smell of catnip filled the air and other cats started showing up - the only ones not here were Lola, who didn't come down, and Virgil, who waited off to the side for some reason.
Carly was smart and took the toys out of the packaging - better for shipping and inspecting. There was a TON of cute stuff - mousies, balls, a duckie (which was SUPER popular) and also some want toys, and a cute cube with hanging toys in it - we have had cubes but none that fancy - and two very cute blankies - a pink one and a blue one (perfect since we have boys and girls). And of course, something Carly didn't think of as a toy is my guess - bubble wrap (fun for me but the cats love it too).
In addition to the toys, there were TREATS too - but for the first time ever the cats didn't go for those because there were so many toys to explore! Gus and Stella went straight to the cube. Barney got very territorial and any time someone tried to get the toys he wanted they got the smacky paw. The cool thing is that Kirzon was really into the toys too - they had a great nip smell and he loves that. He also put the smacky paw down - he even got Barney. Barney adored the ducky - you can see him licking it in the pictures. I think that is what Kirzon was going for too but he decided to sit on the blankies instead.
Trixie went for the wand toys. There was one with a pink birdie on it that she grabbed and took off with - not far but still, she liked it. It was so funny.
There were a ton of great mousies and balls too - once Virgil was ready to visit (which was post picture time) he loved them. Oh, and crinkle balls - I almost forgot those. They are also popular - they are still around because they turn up sometimes (I think they hide them from each other). And fo course they treats and everythign - they loved it all. It was the perfect package because it literally had something for everycat! They are still enjoying everything! Thanks so much Tia and Carly!!
Ok, now here is the Smilebox for your enjoyment. I didn't get much visiting in today because work is stupid. I am sure you are all tired of hearing about how much I hate my job, so I decided to restart my blog titled I Hate My Job. I can vent there when I need to which is a lot of the time. I hope you are all having a good week and hopefully things will calm down and I can get to see everyone this week!!
