Several years ago (7 years), Mom Paula took the lead on the Secret Paws for the Cat Blogosphere. At that time, we had 47 participants and have varied from 46-65 participants over the past 7 years. Sweet Praline was the original host of the Secret Paws in 2010 and we took over the duties after she went to the bridge a few months later. We've met so many wonderful cats in the blogging world and their humans.

We've received packages from Luna and Zulu from Would You Like Some Fur with Your Wine; Rumbles and Diego from Rumblebum (Mom Paula still won't let us play with our toys from New Zealand); Sparkle from SparkleCat (Truffle still carries around her Tickle Gherkin); Katie and Waffles from Glogirly; Laila and Minchie from Cat-O-Holic (this was special to us because Laila and Minchie sent Sweet Praline her very first Secret Paws package back in 2008); Zee and Zoey from Zee & Zoey's Cat Chronicles; and this year our package was sent from Spitty the Kitty from Spitty Speaks. It was really fun to travel back down memory lane as we found these links from the past.

We received so many more wonderful items from Spitty the Kitty and his Mom, Mary. There were Kong toys, a Yeowww Rainbow, three kinds of treats (we love the freeze-dried rabbit), some silvervine toys, silvervine, and some socks and a throw for Mom Paula. We'll share more photos of these items over the next few days. Brulee really isn't into catnip and silvervine as much as she is the feathers. Truffle, however, is a different story. Truffle loves catnip and goes wild over silvervine. We received two toys filled with silvervine and to Mom Paula's surprise, both of us played with them. When Mom Paula pulled out her phone to videotape us playing with the silvervine toys, Truffle took over both of the toys.
You'll notice Brulee stepped back when Truffle decided she wanted both of the silvervine toys because she knows Truffle can be a mean "drunk" when she gets on a silvervine/catnip high.
We want to thank Spitty the Kitty and Mom Mary for the wonderful Secret Paws package. We hope everyone else enjoyed participating the Secret Paws exchange this year.
