Our O So Thrilling Secret Paws Event

About Secret Paws

So this year for the second time we participated in the scrumptious Secret Paws event, organized by Ms. Paula of Sweet Purrfections.   To read more about it, check the link above!  We got amazing & thoughtful gifts this year from the blog, Friends Furever that we truly treasure.

The joy of this annual event is that we get to have tons of fun picking out toys, presents, treats and what have you for our "Secret Correspondent" while some lucky kitty & their human are doing the same for us!  AND THEN WE GET TO OPEN OUR PRESENTS!  

The Box Arrival

As mentioned above, Friends Furever, composed of kitties Raz, Allie, Noelle & their mom, Sharon, were our secret paws!  It was an incredible bonanza involving a "Silver Cat, " a Palm Tree, a Lollipoop, er Lollipop wand toy, a scrrrratcher and la piece de resistance, a fleecy santa-cat blanket MADE by Ms. Sharon  Naturally, I, Peaches, inspected the Fedex box upon arrival and found it  most satisfactory. I know this because I am a trained cat-detective.


After that thurrrilling arrival we had to WAIT impatiently patiently for DAYS. We DID get a good sniff or two of the packages while  waiting, and we (kinda) enjoyed our preliminary inspection.

Opening Day

So exciting! Again we impatiently patiently waited as the colorful packages were laid out for us.  Paprika tried to get ahead of me, she is the nosier of us two.

The Green Palm Tree Toy

Wouldn't you know it, since our Secret Paws friends were from FLORIDA they couldn't resist rubbing it in about our cold New England winters (we live in Connecticut). I was enthralled with the toy palm tree, but didn't get to enjoy it long.That scoundrel, Paprika, STOLE it, ran away & hid it somewhere. Two days later I still don't know where she put it.  SCANDALOUS!


The next intriguing package was a Scccrrrratcher!  Yummm..I started sharpening my claws on it immediately.  It had a "red monster" on it but that didn't scae ME! It felt very delicious to my claws!

That's it, with the green stem sticking out!

The colorful Lollipop Wand Toy

 Okay so this time I did let my sisfur Paprika in on the fun. Though I am NOT a sharing cat I do make an exception for wand toys. Our wand toy was very colorful--red, green, yellow,  Well we both had a blast with it as anyone can see!

The Amazing Red & White Santa Cat Blanket

Talk about thurrrrrrrilling! What can be better than A FLEECE blanket. And we later learned it was Hand Made by Mom 
Sharon. We couldn't get enough of that blanket. It is VERY  SOFT! It has a reversible red side, too. Here I am, trying it out in my full glory. In fact I DO consider it "MY" blanket! 

Nice Try Paprika!
Here you will notice PAPRIKA tried to act like it was HER blanket. She pretended she was just trying to show off it's reversible red side. Don't believe her! She wants to get the blanket away from me!

My "Cheesecake" shots on the Santa Blanket

A few cheesecake red and white blanket shots should convince you this blanket is MINE!

Maybe I should just hang out & take a little relaxed nap to cement the deal!

Or a formal portrait may be in order!

The Silver Cat

The last item we opened was apparently a gift for our human!  (Too bad, see below) It is a beautiful silver cat (pewter?) which stands by itself and has room for a photo in the middle of it. Our human was awed and put it on her mantel.  Isn't it beautiful!

Now there IS more to this silver cat story. You see me and Paprika were & are Verrrry interested in this cat. Check out our reaction in the photos.  We both wanted to kiss him and Paprika tried to hang out with him during her morning birdwatch.  It could be we are attracted to the FISH hanging out of his silver jaws!  Okay so we're nuts. Takes all kinds!
