Lucky kitties!

On Friday there was a large box on my front steps--my big Stampin' Up! order  had arrived! and my mailbox was full....some fabric that i had ordered, the local paper, some other stuff, and a Priority Mail box from Florida. I couldn't remember ordering anything from Florida....oh wait, it wasn't addressed to me, it was addressed to Sylvie, Louie, Fuzzy, and Gingy! I opened the box for them, and there inside was a gorgeous, soft, fluffy "hairy blankie" from  Peggy's kitty blankies. The really cute note with it said this little cosy something was from all of their feline friends at  Cliff and Olivia, Cat With A Garden (Chilli and Siena), Sumac Stories (Banshee, Shade, and Goldie), and The Pouponette (Tama-Chan and her kittens, Yuu-Chan, and Sei-Chan)....and that for the hairy blankie, a donation had been made to the Cat Blogosphere to help kitties with their Vet bills. Isn't that nice??!!

I resisted the urge to wrap the blankie around my own shoulders and instead put it on the foot of the bed, over the cat towels, and Louie immediately came in to "test drive" it...he loves it! During the night, Gingy said she'd like to sleep on it, too, and Louie said "no, there's not enough room on this blankie for both of us." I had folded it in half--tonight it's unfolded, so there should be enough room for both of them with no squabbling. Thank you, friends!

  4. What a wonderful gift! We love the blanket that Peggy made for us.

    P.S. We are glad to hear that you survived "Snowmageddon". We were fortunate here - we only received about 10" of mixed snow and ice - now we have about 20+ inches on the ground. Agree that it is very heavy for shoveling (we've been taking turns...)
