Madi: Part I:Receiving the Christmas Gift

Oh boy is Madi excited. A few weeks ago we signed up to participate in
Jazzi's Gift Exchange. Jazzi and her Mom put the participants names in a hat, Jazzi
drew one name at a time and her Mom assigned each of us a furiend
The only rules were

1) be sure to mail our furiend's gift by December 15,
2) once we rec'd our gift we were to post all about it and show what we got.

Thank you Jazzi and Mom for hosting such a wonderful event!!!!!

Madi's name was assigned to Bambi and Happy and their Mom Fern, Animal lover, quilt lover.
Since this was my first time ever receiving a present in the mail...Mom took so many pictures
so decided to make it a 2 part event.

Today is all about 'Receiving the Gift'!!!
Below is the picture of my very first present addressed and mailed to me

Mom and Dad got home late the night my package arrived so they placed it under the
tree for me to sniff all day on Friday.

Finally Friday night Mom got out the scissors to open the box.

Inside the mailing box was this very pretty kitty card

and a very nice note from Bambi, Happy and Fern.

Thank you for all the special touches you added to my gift.

Then Mom found another BOX wrapped up in very pretty
kitty Christmas paper!!! Oh my Fern, Bambi and Happy
know how to make a Diva kitty happy. I sniffed
and sniffed and oh was I happy (Happy no pun intended MOL)

Then Mom asked me to move away from the package so she could get a very nice picture
of the present before we 'tore' into it. I was a little worried about tearing into it for fear I'd
break or ruin it but Mom explained it was just a figure of speech. Ok I didn't understand that
either but I just said 'WHATEVER' Mom get on with the show.

Don't blame me for not showing you what was inside the package right this minute.

You can talk to THE MOM about that decision. She says we'll keep you all

in suspense because anticipation is part of the fun.

I can tell you this it is ONE FANTASTIC KITTY GIFT.
Part 2 the unwrapping will be posted late afternoon on December 14.

Madi the Happy Diva Cat and Mom the Queen of Suspense

    We participated in Secret Paws this year and we got our package...and mom has NOT helped us open it yet!!! Can you believe that??!?

  15. Oh Madi, Madi, we can't wait - open the box, open the box!
    The card was cute and the packaging is so very pretty with little kitty cats on but this is torture.
    Just as well our mum has been at work today or she would have been much worse..........
    We were wondering if it might be a mouse - we know you cats like them!
    Hurry up Madi, rip it open.......
    Your inpatient friends
