Secret Paws Sent

Hi everyone, Katie here.

Well it's high time that Glogirly take a back seat to me. I think she's been getting way too much attention as of late. So I put her to work. I sent her to the store to buy gifts for my Secret Paws. And of course, she came home with the wrong stuff. I made the list as easy for a human to understand as possible. But she came home with treats for a cat that doesn't like treats and rawhide lolly pops for a senior citizen dog that probably wears dentures for all we know. Cat toys for dogs...sheesh, can the girl get ANYTHING right!? So I had to send her back. Again. This time she did good.

I inspected each item, giving them all a good sniff and a paws up. I really thought I should take them out for a test run, but Glogirly said that wouldn't be polite.

I also helped with the wrapping.

Glogirly did the taping though. I don't do tape.

I wanted to make some customized gift tags with my likeness so I told her to open up Photoshop and make it happen. Took her forever and I think she used Photoshop, InDesign AND Acrobat to make them. Either she was trying to show off or just pathetically inept as graphic designers go. In the end though I think they turned out great. Of course it's hard to go wrong with anything that has my face on it.

I told her that she simply HAS to get to the Post Office today. That Brian Williams guy on the nightly news said that yesterday was the busiest day of the year for the USPS and that my box has to be postmarked by Wednesday. She better not screw this up too.

In the meantime, I'm anxiously awaiting a Secret Paws box with my name on it. So far there's nothing under our tree. Glogirly better get busy or my Secret Paws gift will be the ONLY thing under the tree. That is, except for a pile of broken ornaments. Hint, hint.

    Tell Glogirly, she could set up a little business doing customised tags.

  21. You did a great job snoopervising your hoomin, Katie. We know how much hard werk that is!

  22. If it weren't for my intense hatred of tape I could get a part-time job wrapping and whapping gifts!
    Your package is very nice!

  23. Hello sweet Katie,
    You did a great job helping mommy to pack all gifts and treats.
    Please be patient about Glogirly, you need to understand she is happy, soooo happy because everything is going well ( thanks GOD),It's a blessing!
    And when it happens those human girls simply walk with their "heads in the clouds"!The same happens when they are in love. :)
    So, she certainly will buy what you asked for the next time, okay!
    Also she is a talent artist so that, it's normal the artists sometimes go to the "space"a kind of sweet dream, mainly when they are creating beauty for our lives!
    These pictures are perfect my sweetheart!
    I love your toes, you are gorgeous !
    Good luck with all work there,
    purrs and love
    your friend

  24. WOW!!! Whoever the reicpient of your package is, sure is one lucky kittie! You did a fantastic job with the wrapping, Katie! Kudos to you!!!

  25. You are such a furry good snooper-visor! Do you have a clipboard and pen or do you just remember eFURything all by you's selfs?

  26. Those secret pressies look very interesting. And I see you keep your human up to scratch too. Well done!
