Friends and Surprises!

I had a wonderful surprise today! The doorbell rang, and I ran to get it with Ms. C. It was the mailman, and he had a package just for me! Oh, I couldn't believe it-- I've never gotten a package in the mail before. I don't think anyone had an address for me back when I lived at the SPCA. Look, it even has my name on it:

It came all the way from France! I helped inspect as Ms. C assisted me with the opening of the package.

What is it, what is it?! (Ms. C: Abby, that's just the bubble wrap, it's not the thing that they actually sent to you, it's just protecting it during its journey)

Oh, ok, I understand. But I am still going to have to sniff it.

Wow!!! Check it out! It's from Sen-Chan and Tom, and they sent me some awesome cat toys and a beautiful card with their very own pictures on it! (Ms. C: Abby, let me take those out of their packages before you play with them)

Inside the card it says:

Dear Abby,
This is v. late but we wanted to send you some welcome gifts. We
hope you like them!
Your pals,
Sen-Chan & Tom

The handwriting is very special, I think perhaps Sen-Chan wrote it himself. I am so honored to have such wonderful friends! And they know exactly what I like. In fact, one of the toys is designed for carrying around, which is one of my very favorite things to do with my toys.

Thanks so much! Now, where is Ms. C --- it's time to PLAY!!

Oh how cool!!! That was so wonderful of them to send it all the way from France! Isn't it fun to get packages? Especially international ones!


Sen and Tom said...

Hi Abby! I'm really glad you got the package. I'll let Sen-Chan know too. Last I heard, he was very busy licking the house-sitters' noses!

Your Pal,
TOM (in a very rainy Cumbria...)
