Stories, events and life in general from Miss Kitty's point of view


Look at what came in the mail

There came across a huge smile on dads face when late Saturday afternoon he retrieved the mail to find two items addressed to ‘Miss Kitty.’ He had hurried back into the house to show mum, who, by the way could not believe her eyes and was wondering what I had been up to.

Dad then sprinted up the stairs before running out of breath and headed straight for me. I turned towards him and with my usual inquisitive “Meow” inquired to know why he had elected to wake me from my meditations.

“Look what had come in the mail for you” he said.

Still in my declined position, I raised my head, gave the package and envelop its proper sniff inspection, which was followed by another “Meow,” letting dad know it was all right to open, because now I wanted to see what was inside the envelops.

Cheri had mentioned earlier in the week that our package should arrive beginning of the week, but to my surprise, the package came late Saturday afternoon in the post, along with an envelop from Sparkle in Los Angeles. The timing for either item to arrive simultaneously was genuinely fortuitous in a funny sort of a way. In one envelop a book and in another a bookmark.

The book was part of a ‘Give-a-way’ at Cats of Wildcat Woods as seven siblings and Cheri were celebrating their 300th post and wanted to honour it with a just released paperback edition of Homer’s Odyssey by Gwen Cooper . The bookmark came from Sparkle the Designer Cat who had a book launch for Dear Sparkle: Cat-to-Cat Advice from the World’s Foremost Feline Columnist.

Currently dad is trying to finish another book about, what else, a woman Jacqueline and the felines in her life, their adventures and lessons they taught her. Once finished, dad will be reading Cheri’s generous gift and sharing the stories of Homer with me.

My apologies for not photographing Miss Kitty with the spread on the table. I followed the wisdom of another, who it is said, cut off the bottom of his rob where the cat was sleeping in order not to disturb the animal, considering I already had interrupted her meditations.

Post Script: I just learned from Bleubeard's human, Elizabeth, that he decided to make a rare appearance on her blog Altered Book Lover, since he permitted Elizabeth to take 'over 100 hundred photos.' So please drop on in and say 'hi.'

Hallo liebe Miss Kitty,

Herzlichen Glückwunsch - das passt ja gut, Buch und Lesezeichen! Homer ist ja ein toller Kater! Ich meine, Kerstin sollte das Buch auch lesen.

Viel Spass beim Lesen und Zuhören!

Liebe Grüße und Nasenstupser

Hello Miss Kitty, thanks for telling us that the Facebook link in our post today didn't work. I had mom correct it.

So glad the book arrived early - have fun reading it.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Oh wow, not only did I get to see the wonderful new book and bookmark you got, Miss Kitty, but you also linked to Bleubeard today. He is so happy he is meowing away. He's been very active this morning, realizing blogland is talking about him. He said to tell you he knows how you feel each time people visit you !

Have a great day and awesome week, Miss Kitty. Hope you don't need to disturb your dad too much until his book is finished.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Fancy the book and the bookmark arriving together - at least your Daddy won't lose his place while he is reading to you.

Raymond and Busby said...

Wow, that is so fun that the book and the bookmark arrived on the same day! Enjoy!

Hi Miss Kitty!
Hey, what a surprise! I can very well understand that your dad was full of joy getting those parcels. It's like X-max :o). I hope you will tell us, how the book was.
Kind regards from
Alex and Noah

Sparkle said...

That was perfect, that my bookmark arrived the same day as Homer's Odyssey! That's a really good book - I reviewed it on my blog - and you and your human will enjoy it lots.

Hello Miss Kitty.
What a treasure trove of surprises. WE know you will love all of those goodies! It's ironic because Mom just read Homer's Odyssey to me this weekend and I helped her offer up her thoughts on it in a posting we are doing tomorrow. I look forward to your thoughts.

Getting mail is so much fun...and think of all the lovely time you can spend with your Dad as he reads Homer's story to you. Hopefully he will remember to feed you tid-bits every time he turns the page.

Lucy the Cat said...

Miss Kitty, Mama and I are looking forward to hearing about Homer's Odyssey. Congrats on the book and bookmark. Yes, how fortunate they came the same day!

p.s. I hope you can visit tomorrow for my 14th Gotcha Day party. :)

Oh Miss Kitty you are a gorgeous furry doll!! Thank you ever so much for stopping by my blog to say hello. :) Now I have discovered your kind face and will have to introduce you to my Mocha, Quincy and Emma.

I will add you to my blogroll so I can see your kitty updates!
