Right out of the clear blue sky we rec'd a package from them
addressed to DMMtC, (Diva Mayoress Madi the Cat) and Mom
Miss Cindi Lou Who and her posse are a hoot!!

Ms J and Miss Cindi Lou Who were two our our very, very first
kitty blogging friends.  Ms. J takes the most beautiful pictures of everything around her and volunteers with the local cat shelter to spay and neuter the kitties in her city and is a foster mom.
Lawsy mercy Mom I'm smelling Essence of Miss Cindi Lou
Hold your horses while I sniff her smell mail
Oh my cats look at the loot for Madi and Mom
But I had to make sure there was nothing left in the paper
Mom is bad about hiding things from me.
Mom received a darling book
"I Could Pee On This" and other Poems by Cats
by Francesco Marciuliano.  Mom says the 
title alone tickles her funny bone
If you have never smelled a lobster full of cat nip,
I highly recommend you do so.    Two of a felines favorite things
seafood and catnip in one easy sniff.
Of course you know if there was a box I was either going to get in it 
or sit on it!! 
YUMMY MY VERY ON SACK OF TREATS
Mom is getting pretty handy with her iPad video functions
so here is a verbal thank you.  Mouth of the South, aka Mom,
was talking a lot but if you listen carefully you'll hear my 
thank you!

Miss Cindi Lou and sibs and Mom I thank you again from the bottom of my itty bitty kitty heart and so does mom!!
Hugs and thank you for being our friends for the last 4.5 years.

ROYAL MAIL

Bright and early on Monday morning my peeps were
leaving for their walk at 8am way before our mail comes
and lo and behold there was a package for me on the porch.
It was from
Molly the Wally 

This is one of my favorite pictures of during the Gymnastics
portion of the Summer Olympics
Look at her stylin' in her shiny furs and Olympic Shades
Molly lives across the Pond AND this my first package ever from the U.K.!!
THE PACKAGE WAS SO INTERESTING
Mom made a collage of the HIGH POINTS of the package


1. IT WAS ROYAL MAIL, which she said was quite fitting 
2. OMFs (oh my friends) it was from Molly gal pal
3. I just love how it was addressed. MOL
4. Molly gave up a chunk few pieces of shiny fur.  Her mom 
taped it to the package and labeled it 'my signature'! 
In case you didn't know, Molly and her peeps are so funny.
5. Moi checking the smell mail Molly left on the package
6.  Finally I let mom open it to get to this package beneath
the cardboard. It was wrapped in this very pretty paper with Molly's picture on the gift tag.

OK ARE YOU READY TO SEE WHAT WAS INSIDE?
*

Enough treats to keep this Diva happy for a very long time.
Three Dreamies Mix crunchy outside, soft inside... just like me!! MOL, and two packs of Felix Goody Bags seaside and original mix!
and a Cat nip stuffy that smells yummy.

Lo and behold underneath all those treats was my very 
own Fairy Wand Set.  Just what a Diva Mayoress needs too
a hair comb, ear bobs and a ring!! I just have to figure out which paw to wear the ring.
Mom had to explain the wand thing-a-ma-jig
Dang I had no idea I could wave my wand and say abracadabra 
to get anything my heart desired
If you look closely, you'll see I gave it some toofers too
and now I have my very own bejeweled Diva Crown
I'll be using my wand and my crown at my swearing in 
festivities.

I made a short video to thank Molly to say thank you.

TASTY TUESDAY: Chicken Soup for the Cold

Today is a rare day for us...we are participating in Sugar and Kol's
Tasty Tuesday....

it is rare because Mom doesn't cook my food
but she does cook GOOD food.
Lots of our two legged friends have nasty colds and the ickies.
Mom turned on my battery operated Pottery Barn
candle to let them know we hope they feel better soon

And Mom made a crock pot of Chicken and Rice soup
for their colds.



We thank Ms. Kit @ Dog Daze (blog currently on hiatus) for the recipe!!  Easy peasy too
*****

Madi's Mayoral Cabinet (REALLY)

First of all my (un)able assistant apologizes for her slip of the finger last week.  She was working on this post..meant to hit  save but she hit publish.  She quickly turned it into a draft but could not get it off the blog reader!! 



If misfires continue, there will be a vacancy for Assistant to 

Diva Mayoress Madi the Cougar*(*ask Frankie)

Last weeks survey of potential titles was fun, I especially liked
Your Worship, (one of the many titles on last weeks survey),  which is what Mayors are called in Canada, per Fuzzy Tales, but Mom told me my head was already too big....
SO I have decided I shall be called

DMMtC
 Mom told me it sounded like a Rapper's name. MOL
So without any further fanfare may I present the cabinet of DMMtC 
If you don't know one of my cabinet members, click on their names to visit.
