Secret Santa Paw

Okay so Mom finally got it in gear to get Photoshop re-loaded on the computer (remember she had to wipe it out - well, you got it, she had to re-load everything - including all our pictures and programs) so she could remove the addresses from our Secret Paw pictures (since she forgot to cover them before she took the pictures). We got a great package from Riley and Tiki. We were so surprised that our Secret Paw was someone we already knew and loved! Thank you so much guys! So here we are sniffing out our package:Then we got to see all the goodies!

Boy we got a haul! All our favorites including Smoke's favorite - a pink boa!

He wasted no time in carrying it off and growling at anyone who dared to come near it. Daddy said that it looked like he had de-feathered a pink flamingo!

Smoke swears he wasn't doing anything, but we know better!

In new news today, Cha-Ching went to the vet to be neutered today! He wasn't very happy about being separated from his buddy Smoke over night, nor is he very happy to be segregated in his room for the rest of today to recover. Fortunately all went well at the vet today and he's resting comfortably. Here he is coming out of the PTU when we got back from the vet.

Mommy cried on the drive. It reminded her of driving McKenzie to the vet one year ago (it was the Tuesday after Martin Luther King Day last year) to find out why he was having seizures. That was when they put him on Valium and said that there wasn't anything they could do for him except keep him comfortable. She still misses him a lot. Daddy says that it took four furballs to try to make up for losing one McKenzie. I guess that really says it all about just how special he was.

Purrs to your mom! It must have been sad for her to drive Cha-Ching to the VET.

It's good to see you back. I am glad that you are all enjoying your Secret Paws!

We're so glad you like your prezzies. Smoke looks silly with that feather sticking out of his mouth. We hope Cha-Ching is feeling better. McKenzie sounds like he was a very special guy.

Yay! Cha-ching had his hooha-ectomy! He looks furry happy in the photo.

Smoke sure loves his pink fev-vers!
