I tend to go a long time between checking my PO Box because I forget to, and it doesn’t get a lot of traffic, so sometimes weeks and weeks will go by before I remember to check it. When I was out running errands yesterday, I decided to stop and check.

Imagine my surprise when I had a package from the fabulous Charlene Butterbean with a mail date of August 29th!

As it turned out, reader Mari had ordered some Itty Bitty Kitty Committee sparkle balls and had them sent to me – and Laurie had (at Charlene’s directions, I’m sure) included some gorgeous postcards!

Well, naturally I had to see what the reaction was from the kitties. First, I tried Alice.

“I am sleeping, lady. You go ‘way.”

And then I took them in to Charlie and Patty Peppers to see what their reaction would be.

First Charlie knocked a blue sparkle ball off the bed and ran off to kick it around the room (he REALLY liked his sparkle ball, but every picture I got of him was blurry!)

And then Patty chose a pretty pink sparkle ball.

While Patty and Charlie played with their sparkle balls, I took some out to the living room, where the big Peppers were hanging out.

Everett’s pretty sure pink is his color.

Sally thinks pink goes nicely with her collar.

Molly, also a fan of pink.

Everett thinks perhaps blue works better for him…

Or red?

Harlan comes in to see what all the fuss is about.

Eventually, Everett settled on blue.

Thank you to Mari and Charlene (Laurie) for the cool gifts. I highly recommend the sparkle balls, and the post cards are even more gorgeous in person – and they’re nice, sturdy postcards, not those flimsy ones you find in the store. You can get your own post cards or sparkle balls here!

“What the – ?”

In the end, Alice smacked the ball and stomped off to take a nap.


2010: No entry.
2009: “Madame, I don’t believe I care for your tone.”

2006: Maddy is officially off the bottle!
2005: I wouldn’t say that Sugarbutt’s butt is at 100%, but it’s so much better than it was last Thursday that I’m not complaining.

  1. Phew! I am so glad SOMEBODY sent those kittens some toys, cos we all know they are deprived! 🙂

  2. I ordered those sparkle balls too! 🙂

    Looks like Gracie is in 5th place! Ok, everyone, pass her link around and have all your friends vote (threaten them with a wedgie or something if they don’t) and have them forward the link along!!!! Gracie MUST win!

  3. Sparkle balls, sparkle balls, we want sparkle balls! and darn it that we ‘across the sea’ cannot vote for Gracie – how is that fair?
