Kitties Blue Receive Secret Paws from Katzenworld

Once again we pawticipated in the Secret Paws gift exchange organized by Truffle and Brûlée and Mom Paula. We really appreciate all their hard work in setting this up each year.
Our gifts this year came all the way from the U.K. and the Katzenworld gang. The box was chock full of toys from their shop as well as a super cute “Oliver, Nubia & Snowball” mug for mom.
Most of the toys are filled with either catnip or valerian. We have not had valerian before so we will have a new experience playing with these toys. We let you know what we think in a future post.
Of course, not all of us showed up for the opening ceremony. But those who didn't (Giulietta, Astrid and Lisbeth) will get plenty of opportunity to try out and play with all the goodies.

Mauricio really enjoyed the gingerbread man with valerian. And he's already taken one of the big grey mousies upstair for some night-time play. Only the best toys get dragged from one floor to another!

Of course, Mom did not open all the toys for us. Even with seven Kitties Blue, it would be too much all at once. We know she'll be doling them out over the next few months.
Sorry our photos are sort of blurry. It's hard to sit still when kitty stimulants are involved!
All of us are sending great big kitty kisses and a huge T-H-A-N-K Y-O-U to Oliver, Nubia and their humans for the terrific gifts.

Cheshire Kitten And Family In Christnip Bliss

Dear Waffles, Katie, and Glogirly,

Thank you so much! We are so happy with our gifts!

Something for everyone: nip toys, chicken treats, balls, tea accessories, TISSUE PAPER, and a BOX. (Some of our other presents got mixed in with the cool stuff Katie and Waffles sent, like the beachball.)

We had two unboxings, one downstairs on Christmas and one upstairs on Boxing Day.

Cheddar started the party with the nip banana.

I got to play with the nip Christmas tree before anyone else.
Bleu tried to fit in the box, but he is a BIG kitty, so although he had fun trying, he did not succeed. He played with the banana instead.

Nutmeg had the most fun with the nip tree.

Becket watched her from the safety of Upstairs Human's bed.

Colby wasn't sure what to make of everything at first.

Belle, Huck and Sparkle got lots of freeze-dried chicken treats.

Thank you, Truffle and Brulee, for making Secret Paws happen!

Happy New Year, Everyone!
