Prize Package from Henry and Clyde!

Recently I won Henry and Clyde's 100th Post Contest, and when Mom said, "Mail Call for Miss Marilyn!", I knew my prize package had arrived. Wow! I'm so excited!



Check out all the goodies, in a beautiful wicker basket!



Oh, oh, oh!! There must be 'NIP in here. I'm becoming wonderfully frothy-headed!



Let's see, where's the nip? Where's the 'nip? Ah, I see it! A whole bag full!



And the toys are filled with 'nip, too! I'm feeling so pleasantly goofy -- see how googly-eyed I am?



Look at this, a beautiful book called Catnip! And I assure you, I don't usually nibble on my books. I only do that when I'm Under the Influence. Anyway, this is a lovely book -- filled with beautiful pictures, poems, and sayings about cats!



Oh, Salmon-flavored Temptations! Could anything be more delectable?



Meet my new friend -- an adorable catnip duck -- and he squeaks! He sounds just like Dorydoo. How we will we ever tell the difference? *giggle*



And tail chasers -- I love tail chasers! They have 'nip in them, too. *smile*



I gave one to my brother MaoMao, who was playing in the box.



Tail chasers are so much fun!



Here I am, playing in the loose catnip. If you biggify this picture, you will see catnip on the side of my face and on my ear! Oh, I'm googly-eyed, googly as can be...



And look, oh look! Can it be? It is! A catnip bananer! *singing*: Ohhhh, sweet mystery of life, at last I've fooooooooouuund you!



MaoMao wanted to see the catnip bananer, so I shared it with him. He loves it!



Here's Brainball, checking out a tail chaser which looks quite a lot like him, only not so floofy! *giggle*



And guess who else loves the catnip bananer... Dorydoo!



Thank you so much, Henry and Clyde -- I love all my prizes -- the basket, too! As you can see, the basket is a wonderful place to lounge *smile*. I loved your sweet note to me, too. You are wonderful and thoughtful friends, and I appreciate you!



And *giggle*, darling Mickeybear -- check out how my floof sticks out through the basket handle!

I am so excited that you like your prizes! The basket is a perfect fit for you. I love how your furs floof out the sides! Be kind to the catnip bananer, mine attacked me one day. They get a little upset if you bite at them too much!

Oh, you got the greatest prizes, Marilyn! It was really generous of you to share!

P.S. You don't need no stinkin' Photoshop to look beautiful! :)

That's a great prize package. You got some wonderful goodies. It is very nice of you to share, too. I love it that the basket is a perfect fit for you.

Thank you so much for your thoughts and purrs. I could feel your whiskers tickling my chin when you teleported over. Your good wishes for my family are working. My sister-in-law is improving and may be discharged and get to come home on Tuesday.

Such a wonderful gift package from henry and Clyde. They are such very thoughtful kitty friends!! Wowie you were showered just like Christmas morning!
The best thing is how you share everything with those you love the most! This is why you will always be my beloved sister and I thank my lucky stars the day you agreed we should be sisters:)
Mommy is up to something and I don't like it much:(

Wowie! What a fantastic prize package! Henry and Clyde are so nice. Catnip bananers are the best! And I love tail-chasers too. I see the catnip in your furs. It's no wonder you got the googly-eyes.

Mickey said...

WOW!!! That's a lot of nip! I think you will be high all weekend.Better go sleep it off,hahaha!!

Diamond said...

Your fur looks pretty and fluffy in the basket Marilyn. Apparently some cats like catnip and some don't. I am not too fussed about it, though I can see you are.

Ramses said...

It looks like you've had a wonderful day with lots of 'nip and new toys for all! It must have felt like an early visit from SantaPaws! ;)
