Paw It Forward

I received a special package from Purrs 'n Snorts a couple of weeks ago and would you believe Mom just gave it to me last night??? I always love getting a package that is addressed to me. This package is from the "Paw It Forward" exchange.

Is this for me, Mom? Why are you just now giving it to me?

One of the first things Mom pulled out of the package was an envelope. Guess what was inside of it? It was a charm for my Mom with my picture on it. I think my Mom got leaky eyes when she saw it. She told me I couldn't play with it, that it was something she would treasure long after I am gone. Where am I going Mom?

You may need to bigify the picture to see the charm. Isn't it great?

Then, Mom poured the contents out of the envelope. There were lots of presents, but my attention was immediately drawn to the fev-ver toy! It didn't say anything about catnip, but I fell for it immediately.


In fact, I wouldn't even let Mom take the fev-ver toy off of the paper. I grabbed it and started playing with it. I didn't even give mom time to change the flashy box to video, so she took a bunch of still photos to show you how much I enjoyed it.




When I came up for air, Mom took the fev-ver toy off of the cardboard and I continued to play with it. Look at my big eyes!


Here are the rest of the items in my package. Aren't the kitties and woofies from Purrs 'n Snorts wonderful? This package was something that both Mom and I needed with all of our trials this summer. It made my Mom smile and me purr!



Here are the guidelines for Paw It Forward:

The exchange focuses on doing an act of kindness without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in their turn, pass the kindness along and 'paw it forward' in their own way. This is how it works...I am going to send something to the first blog owner who wants to take part. In turn you will then post about this on your blog, link back to me, then send something to the first person who signs up to play along through your blog. There are no cost restraints, BUT don't go crazy! The little something you send can be something you made, bought, were given or found. No biggie, just a gift that will make the person smile; maybe something unique from where you live? And, remember that kindness does not have to involve money, there are untold ways to help others every single day, everywhere you go- just look around. Please post a comment letting me know that you want to play!

Mom just told me I have two more packages that came in this week! Oh boy! Oh boy!

We can't do another paw it forward 'cos we did one this week already!

We love the charm ~ mom said she would love a set of charms with every cat she's ever had on them (one on each charm)~ she said that would make the most amazing charm bracelet. Could you tell her where to get the charms from please?

Hey, Praline, you did have something orange for Photo Hunters today! Your orange fev-vers! We couldn't bigify the picture to see your picture on the charm. We're sure it's something your Mom will treasure always

Have a fun and safe holiday weekend! We think Mom will be home a bit more than she has.

Praline, you won many gifts cool!

Kitty, Xanthe and Nishiko said...

OMC! What wonderful gifts Sweet Praline! We are so jealous! Mummy said that she would like to take part in the Paw it Forward but it might take some time to get some gifts together for the next set of Kitizens. But then she also said that it wouldn't be fair on the Kitizens from the other side of the world to be sending Xanthe and Me boxes because it will cost to much money? But I don't know what money is.

Praline,
You look really happy with your treats. My Mommy said she would love to send something to someone, but she is unsure what to do. There are some very cute things she has her eye on to send to some lucky dog.
