Oh Bast, when the ecitement of prezzies hits, all sensible thoughts go RIGHT out the windows!!!

We saw the word "Parker" on our Secret Paws prezzie package an we jumped off the roof of the house onto the weeds of a conclusion.  So apologies AND proper thanks are in order!  In order to do this as best we can to make up fer our blind prezzie lust, we have decided to do a "Top 10 List" like on the David Letterman talk show (but we're not good at jokes):

10.  If the package says it was from Finland, it probably wasn't from someone we know in the US!  Smarter kitties would have noticed something like THAT! 

9.  We are not just stupid, we are PROFOUNDLY stupid, like American Republican politicians.

8.  The Big Thing should NOT EVER EVER EVER try to drink wine AND post at the same time.

7.  The Punapippuri are the BEST kitties in the whole world!

6.  There are even MORE of them than there are at Katnip Lounge, an we dint know THAT was possible!!!

5.  Their names are:  Harris, Lewis, Stran, Aila, Punapippuri, Tuomo, Mirsku, Rilli, Risto, Roosa, Ruska, Pekka, Jaava, and Jura (and we SURE hope we got all those names right)!  Our paws are REALLY not used to some of those letter combinations. 

4.  Aiti (sorry we can't add the umlats or whatever they are called, because it probably matters) has to be one of the BEST Beins in the world.

3.  If the labels on the toys are not in English, it probably means they came from FAR AWAY!

2.  If the labels on the toys are in Finlandia (Finlandish?, Finnish?), it means they are things we NEVER saw HERE.

1.  Did we mention that the Punapippuri are the BEST kitties in the world?  EVERYKITTY should go visit them!
Aita Parker and Kissa:  Please forgive us our error.  These were the loveliest prezzies we ever got an we are going to TRY to teach The Big Thing to read WHOLE address labels in the future.  The sisal rope/feather toy is now a house favorite, we all LOVE the wand toy, and we can't WAIT to get at that glove thing on Chrissymouse Day!  Ayla is especially taken by the glitter mousies!  She carries then all over the house.

And we are REALLY glad that you celebrate Solstice!

Ayla, Iza, Marley, and The Big (dumb) Thing

(Now, evrykitty,  go back an read our previous post with this "accuratified" in mind)

We wondered at the labels on the toys, but thought oh, well, Parker's humans must have shopped on an overseas trip or on-line or something. LOL.

But now it makes sense!

Oopsie! Don't be too hard on yourselves--sometimes we just get too excited about stuff. Great S.P. haul!

Eric and Flynn said...

Hey, the are a wonderful bunch with great taste in gifts fur sure!

Cory said...

Whoa...did TBT mix wine and nip??


We think that TBT should forgive himself. Oooopsies sometimes make for pawsome blog posts!

The Cat From Hell said...

Remember what TBT did when it is report card time, its not Christmas yet, so yous should be extra specially nice to him. Besides, humans do make lots of mistakes (at least ours does)
Kisses and stop by and see what we gots for our Secret Paws and wish Kozmo a happy Gotcha Day!

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

Yeah, I was wondering about all those foreign sounding toy labels too! I hope realizing his error did not kill your human's wine buzz!

P.S. My human drinks and writes sometimes - she has been somewhat known for her rock journalism, where that is appropriate - but she is NOT allowed to drink while performing any duties for me. She's only allowed a glass when she is done. I think it motivates her to finish her tasks.

Mark's Mews said...

Thats a good rule, Sparkle! Is tipping the wine glass onto the keyboard permitted?

Ayla, Iza, and Marley

Natalie said...

Heh, I've totally done stuff like that. Sounds like you got a great present, though!

Punapippuri said...

Hehehehe. It is okay: this will not spark a major diplomatic incident between Finland and the USA, and we hear the shame and humiliation oozing from your human's apology. Of course you guys knew all the time and just wanted him to make a fool of himself. Äiti told us that some people living in a certain country don't even realise that Finland exists and in fact can possibly be populated by cats or toy shops.
And well done for geting the spellings right for our names - we are very proud of our double vowels and recurring consonants, especially as Äiti (who is in fact English) can't pronounce them properly.
The main thing is you enjoyed the pressies, and we do apologise that we couldn't send you more exciting stuff but customs tend to intercept catnip and food. But be assured that the reindeer we could have sent you tasted really good.
With hearty Christmas greetings from us all,
Punapippuri, King Kitty Cat of FInland (North).

It's an easy mistake to make. I am glad that it is all straightened out now and you can all get back to playing with those great toys.

DaisyMae Maus said...

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

December 23rd: Happy Christmas dear friends ~ and a joyful and healthy new year to you all. xx

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

The presents are great and that wand toy is wonderful! You'll all have fun with that!
Alls well that ends well with the mixup deal.

Derby, Ducky said...

Oh well, Parker or Parker, lots of neat stuff. We like reason #8 not to let your typist blog while drinking wine. well, we are letting mum type for us while drinking wine. Second glass too.
