Chrissymouse Card(s), Part 2

Well, first, we wanna say that TBT mailed our Chrissymouse cards Friday. 

Second, when we asked him why he hadn't had us SIGN the cards, he turned a bit green in the face (not a good color for a Bein) and apologized.  So we pass the apology on to you who receive them. At least our names are printed in the cards...

Third, since TBT did all the addressing werk (somethin that completely baffles us), there may have been some mistakes.  We saw his list today.  Quite frankly, we dont think he did a very good job.  We KNOW positively that he neglected to add some new kitties to the addresses.  So if the address only mentions the older cats in the house, forgive him.  His memory is not very good!

Fourth, while we havent checked completely (we have some spotty memories ourselfs), we are worried that the addresses MAY have included a kitty or 2 that has gone over The Bridge.  Iffen that happens, please forgive him.  He is only a Bein, and therefore "faulty".

Fifth, he says (cuz we dont keep track of such things) that some cards may have been sent to old addresses.  He says it is hard to remember who moved this year.  Purrsonally, we assume the postal people know where all the kitties live and will make corrections.  TBT isnt so sure.  So iffen ya moved, the card might not find you.  Or it might...

Sixth (using the OTHER front paw), we wanna apologize for the uninspired design this year.  We think TBT is gettin weak in his declinin years.  He says he was "rushed".  We say he is no artist.  He objected ta that, but when we pointed out that the cards are kinna "sideways", he went all green again.  Case closed...

Seventh, we are proud of TBT for makin us new return address labels.  It took him a while ta remember how ta do it.  But at least we got our names on the envelopes!  An it was a close call, too.  The printer ran out of ink at the end of the label page!  He had enough, but "barely".   So we will give him a slight "paws up" fer that.

So, for the kitties what he dint have addresses for (or got wrong), we made him sit down an make a new card for everykitty!  He was good about it, we hardly had ta use our claws at all.

We still have objections.  Neither of us looks like this.  But he said they were VERY FAMOUS MEEZERS and it is "symbolic" (like Rudolf or a Snowbein), so we will go along wif that.  But shouldn't our names have been in GREEN?  He is SO hard to manage sometimes...


We cant guess to the size options.  We hope you can make it whatever size ya need. Hope ya can make it fit...

Oops, we hear the treat jar bein opened, gotta run...

Oh, and oops, we meant ta add ta a post a few days ago that TBT posted step-by-step pictures of assemblin the new kitty tower, but it seems we dint save it.  It is HERE!

Those cats on the card look vaguely familiar we are sure we should know them but our beings memory isn't what it should be (sigh) so we can't place them. We knows you look better then them though, much prettier. We thinks you should stop torturing TBT, we all know he did his best for you.

Wow, you guy have a long row to hoe with TBT! Be gentle with him...humans are pretty frail but they DO have the thumbs.

Hi Ayla and Iza! Yes, those are two famous cats - so we think they are a good choice for the card. We had problems with our mom and the cards too - we think she got them all right but she is paranoid she missed people. We sent stuff to people we sent last year that hadn't said they want to exchange - even some who hadn't blogged in a long time - those are the ones mom is most concerned about. But today she got a comment from one of those people and so she was a bit more relieved. Mom still has more cards to send but our stamps didn't get here yet (she said it is ok because it is just our relatives not any kitties) so we think some peopel won't even get our cards til after Christmas - so we think that is worse then getting a couple names off or anything like that!

Oh man, TBT did a good job, maybe not purrfect, but den he is only human. Mom doesn't do cards and a lot of frends and fambly followed her and give da money dey woulda spent on cards and postage to der faborite charity. We keep reminding mom dat she needs to put our Krissymouse greeting on our blog but she's laz, er, bizzy a lot.

What is it about the Catmas cards that humans find so difficult? Mine messed up too by ordering WAY too few! At least yours seems to be pretty handy when it comes to putting together a new cat tree - that came out well!

Great card, girls! We wish you and TBT a great holiday.

We got our card today!! Thank you, we love it!!

Max said...

Hey, at least he got some cards out. I couldn't get the Woman to get her butt in gear AGAIN...no one's getting a card from me because she...just...sux...

The Humans are SO inept sometimes, aren't they? Sigh. Still, for some tasks, you can't beat opposable thumbs, so we just have to tolerate their incompetence. My Human's solution to the card issue is that she doesn't do any!

Awwww TBT's a good guy, but be sure to work on him slowly, then he won't notice he's slowly being rehabilitated.

We went to look at the assembly pics. You're such a good helper kitty Iza.

My mom is singing, "we are Siamese if you please." I don't know why she is doing that.

Brian said...

I think your card is so darn cute!!! Merry Christmas to you and to TBT!!!

Natalie said...

"We are Siame-ese if you ple-ease!" I love that movie! In fact, when I was a kid, we did an animal-themed musical at school, and I was in the group that dressed up as Siamese kitties and sang that song!

Also, I am completely scatterbrained this holiday season (moreso than usual) - it's a thing that happens to beins this time of year!

I like it because you two typed your names really neat and tidy. :-D
Mom said we can print it out and put it on our boxfort!!

We missed your tower postie! The lady and man next door to us, they have a really sweet girl, VERY puffy named Mimi... well, she just got 4 kitten siblings (all future puffy kitties) and their mom and dad got them this EXACT play tower! it is very nice. mom said she got a close up look at it and she is pretty sure that you two will be enjoying this one for a long time!
Our boxfort is cool, but... it is made of ... boxes. kind of, well, CHEAP and tacky. But Miles and I will chew it up and it should be "history" in a few more months.

Happy bonkful day.
sorry our postie displeased you. We meant no harm, and we have a lot of followers that are not kitties so sometimes we put stuff on our bloggie that they would like to read or look at.
It is okay dear Ayla and Issa, you are good friends and we appreciate your visit!! No mom is going to turn on the printer and get your card out of it

bonks!
