Thankful Thursday - Secret Paws, Day 4

It's finally time to show you all of our special items from our Secret Paws package from Sparkle.

Truffle immediately went for the Tickle Gherkin (a smaller version of the Tickle Pickle).  As you can see, Truffle grabbed the gherkin while it was still in the package and in Mom Paula's hands.  This reminded Mom Paula it was time to trim Truffle's claws!

Our next toy was a Nylabone "Chase 'N' Pounce Punk Rock Mouse.  We've always heard about Nylabones because our grandma Faye buys them for our woofie cousin, Bandit.  This will be really good for Truffle because she loves to chew on stuff.

Yummy!  Our favorite treats are the Whole Life Freeze Dried treats, especially chicken and turkey.  Sparkle was so nice and sent us two packages; one for each of us.
As usual, Truffle already has her teeth marks in the treat bag.

We also have a Petstages Fresh Breath Mint Stick.  Sweet Praline always loved mint, but we haven't had any yet, so we are really looking forward to trying this out.  Mom Paula said something about helping our breath.  We don't know what she's talking about because we smell wonderful!
 Truffle and Brulee:  Hmmmm . . .  this smells different.

Yippee!  We have a new tin case of Yeowww Sardines.  We don't know why they have a clothes pin on the cat on the canister and why Mom Paula pinches her nose when she opens this.  We love the smell.
 Brulee and Truffle sniffing the potent aroma from the tin.

The small red package got Truffle's attention in a hurry.  Of course, everything gets Truffle's attention.  Before Mom Paula could even open it, Truffle had her teeth marks in it.

Once Mom Paula got the package away from Truffle and opened it, Brulee jumped right over.  Everyone should remember when Brulee claimed the feather ball for her own before sending our Secret Paws package.  This small package contained two small feather balls.  As you can see, Brulee loves it.
 Fevers! Fevers! Fevers!

This unique toy is a Categories Tropical Feathered Friends and it's specially designed for "chasing".  We love the multiple textures of these birds and Brulee is especially fond of the feathers.

We also received a coupon for a free can of Fancy Feast Mornings.  Mom Paula promised she'd use it on her next trip to the pet supply store.

Sparkle also remembered Mom Paula with this delicious box of Godiva Truffles!  What was so unique about this box of chocolates is that it represents both of us.  The chocolates are truffles and one of the flavors is Creme Brulee.  There are six flavors:  chocolate lave cake, chocolate eclair, strawberry creme torte, red velvet cake, tiramisu, and creme brulee.  We don't know how we feel about Mom Paula munching of truffles and brulee, but she assured us we have nothing to worry about.
 Truffle:  What's so special about this?  We can't have any of it!


Thank you so much Sparkle!  We are so honored you (and your mom) chose these special gifts for us this year.  

Tomorrow, we'll share a short little video of the toy that was a "hit" with both of us.  Stay tuned . . .

The feather balls are my favorites! I make the most frightening sounding meow when I catch one! And Ichiro, well we've won 3 tickle pickles and he always opens them before the Woman gives them to us. In fact, she tried to give one away but he opened it (fortunately our friend was understanding). He opened the third one and lost it before that one could be donated...
