Thankful Thursday

We are thankful that our mom rescues us out of trees. Yes, Chilli got stuck in a tree. Again. Please note the "barrier" mom had put around the trunks to prevent her climbing it. We guess she can take those off now, tee hee. Mom climbed on the wall, reached for Chilli and put her down on the roof of the bicycle shelter in front of the wall. And guess what Chilli did! She ran to our flashy box - mom had put down on the roof to have her hands free - and smooched it over the roof's rim. It fell 3m deep! We are thankful it didn't get broked.

Chilli's portrait from our Catwalk Caturday on location photoshooting inspired our friend Martin Hooper to do this cool graphic. We especially like the black & white segment and the rainbow coloured one below. Thank you Martin! And many thanks to those who voted for us at the Catwalk Caturday Wall of Fame over at Misha's!

But we have more things to be thankful for. Siena's price from the Curly Q Contest arrived from Victor, Nina and mom Jen. They even included some very yummy holistic cat treats. Many thanks!
Mom, please open this fast, this could be for us!Chilli, get out of there!!! I can't see what's in the box!Siena: Mmmh, I think it's the Fling-ama-String!
Chilli: Treats! Yummy!It IS the Fling-ama-String!!!Mom, you'd better set it up fast. I don't have all day, you know.Nom, nom... treats make the waiting less hard...crunch, crunch.

At first we hesitated to check this new thing out.
Then we both tried it...... the stringy moves fast...
... Siena got real good at catching it...... and Chilli likes to flop down and paw at it.
Now we only have to train the humans to switch it on when we want to play. Victor told us that he trained his boy human to do this. Cool!
Purrs on this truly Thankful Thursday, Siena & Chilli

oh dear, Chilli in a tree again! We're glad your mom was able to get you down safely and that the flashy box didn't break.

Your gifts look pawsome! 9 thinks that our Mom should get one of those stringy toys for us. Hopefully, they're available in the States :D

You guys look like great fun! We also have the Fling-a-ma-String and love it! We will rattle it real loud when we want mom to turn it on.

Mishkat said...

We like the photo of Chili in the tree (great laser eyes!) but it can't have been very much fun for your mom! And we love Martin Hooper's graphic - we think you should print and frame it. And that string toy looks amazing! We had to google it to see what it was.

P.S. We posted our thankful post for you today - many thanks to you two and your mom!

Misha said...

Trees, treats AND toys? It's all happening at your palce!

Eric and Flynn said...

The Fling ama string looks like lots of fun. Chilli is like my brother Eric. He is better at going up trees than he is at coming down.
