The Excitement Continues.

The excitement from last week continued right through this week. I got great holiday cards from @Ryker_Tyker & family and from @DuchessCrabtree. I also got greeting cards and TokiPoki cards from @Mariodacat, @Yoda_the_Dog, and @BorisKitty. The Pink Kritter Kondo Deluxe that I won from Kritters that Twitter came this week, too. I can’t wait for nice weather to try it out.

Then yesterday the doorbell rang and rang. The first package had the Cafe Britt coffee in it that I won from @Petethecat at #pawpawty. Mom hasn’t tried the coffee yet because she has a cold and can’t taste anything. She wants to wait until she can taste properly before trying the coffee. The next package was a present from Amanda from Greenies – a huge bag of tuna flavored Greenies. I couldn’t believe it!

Later in the afternoon Mom went to the mailbox to get the mail and came back with more packages! The beautiful bear I won from @I_am_fuzzy showed up. That was really a surprise because Evie (that’s the bear’s name) came all the way from England! Her compartment even got opened in customs and still only took a week to get here. On top of that, the necklace for Candy that I won from @MizzBassie came yesterday, too. What a day!

There are too many pictures for me to stick them in here, so I just put one picture. If you click on it, it links to the album with all the pictures and even a couple of videos.

I know there’s more excitement coming because Mom’s been hiding stuff from us for Catmus. If we aren’t the most spoiled rotten kitties on the planet, I don’t know who is! I sometimes feel guilty because I know there are so many animals that need lots of help and don’t even have safe places to live or food to eat. I purr and purray for them every day and do what I can to help. I think after Catmus we need to go through all the toys and take some to the local shelter.

Happy Holidays my furriends. Lots of love to everyone.

Thankful Thursday

So far I’ve sold 34 copies of Summer at the Lake with Petie. Today I received my first payment in the amount of $119. I haven’t been paid for all the copies yet so there’s more money coming (but not until next month)! I took great joy in going to Duncan’s Place and clicking on their donate button and donating that money. As both Blurb.com and Duncan’s Place both use Paypal, it was very easy.

Ordering is very easy, too. Just click on the picture below and it will take you to the order page!

The deadline for ordering in time for Christmas in the U.S. is December 12. Blurb.com delivers all over the world, so don’t think you can’t order if you live outside the U.S.

Thank you to everyone who has or is going to order Summer at the Lake with Petie. And Happy Holidays to all!

Random Stuff on a Tuesday

Guess what I got today! A picture of GinaTheMinPin reading ‘Summer at the Lake with Petie‘. How cool is this?

Catching up on my reading

And another wonderful friend, @BunnyJeanCook, has written about the book on her blog, Bunny’s Blog. Now, if you’ve never visited Bunny’s Blog, you should. Unlike yours truly, Bunny tackles important stuff on her blog. Here’s just a couple of the things she’s written about:

Help Pawcurious Help Homeless Pets
Adopt a Less-Adoptable Pet Week

I hope you’ll all add Bunny’s Blog to your reading list!

If anyone else wants to send me a picture of themselves reading Summer at the Lake with Petie, please do! Maybe I’ll make a whole page of the pictures.

In other news, @BorisKitty is still collecting green papers to help Peanut and Kiki’s families with the v-e-t bills. These poor kitties were shot with a pellet gun and need lots of v-e-t help. And that means lots and lots of green papers. So help out anyway you can, even if it’s just one or two little papers.

I’m sorry to say that I’m going to end on a sad note here. Yet another beautiful angel, Whiska Pusskat, has crossed the Rainbow Bridge to get his wings. You can read about him here: Whiska Pusskat: In Memorium. I hope you’ll all stop by and say a word or two to his family.

There have been so many furriends crossing the bridge lately that I’m thinking I should add an ‘In Memorium’ page to my blog. Except I’m wondering if that’s just a little morbid. What do you think?

In case we don’t get to talk to each other again before Thursday, Happy Thanksgiving!

Edit: Here’s @smokey8’s sisfer, Princess.

She’s been doing a lot of reading. Looks like she just finished not just  ‘Summer at the Lake with Petie’, but also ‘welcom to my werld‘ by my pal Henry Steiff (@henryandfriends). Looks like Princess is quite the reader. Now all she needs are copies of @maxthequiltcat‘s book, ‘The Zen of Max‘ and @CheshireK‘s book,’Please Send Money‘ (which I read and thoroughly enjoyed).

Speaking of  ‘The Zen of Max’, I won a copy from the drawing on Max’s blog! I’ll be doing a review of it after I read it. Can’t wait!
