Happy I Love Yarn Day!

Happy I Love Yarn Day!

Mom and I both love yarn!  Mom loves yarn as a crafty medium, like for making my Halloween costume.  This year, Mom is doing something a little different:  In past years, Mom has tailored my costume to the exact shape of my shell.  But, this year, Mom is trying out a more domed shape.

I don’t know how to crochet like Mom, but I love yarn, too—in my own way!  😋

Mom, can I get yarn for breakfast tomorrow?

I am Not Amused, Mom!

Cats love boxes, and I love all types of packing materials!  I especially loved all the pretty decorations @anne-fine put on my beautiful birthday box.  I immediately discovered a special stamp showing Tito, Nico, Joa, and their humom.  I made sure to give each and every one of them a thank you boop!  😘  Then I discovered the cake sticker—I love cake!!  🎂😍

image

This cake is so pretty!  All in Mango’s favorite color!

Last but not least:  @anne-fine‘s tissue paper and packing paper are delicious!!  📦😋   (Hooray for Mom leaving all the packing material out while she put my presents in various places!)

image

Mom thought putting me in my birthday box would keep me from nomming all the wrapping paper and plastic.  Mom, how do you still not understand that all paper is delicious?

Thank you again so much for such a wonderful birthday box, @anne-fine!!  We love all my presents and can’t wait to start using my special stamp everywhere!  We are so happy to be your friends!  Thank you!!  ❤️❤️❤️🐢🐢🐢🐦

The biggest surprise in my amazing birthday box from @anne-fine came in its own (delicious) package:  A personalized stamp showing me with Mom!  @anne-fine had our stamp specially carved by a female artisan in Japan!  The stamp includes my name, and stamp me is even wearing a dapper hat!  Plus, stamp Mom has lots of her favorite crafting medium:  yarn!  We love our new stamp so much!!

@anne-fine​ included in my birthday box two samples of my stamp and sent us an excellent demo video showing how to superimpose different colors on top of the ink.  To top it off, @anne-fine sent us an ink pad and special aqueous markers to paint our personalized stamp—including a radicchio-colored marker!

image

All of our lovely stamp materials were wrapped in a 100% cotton bag that I sniffed and booped all over!

image

Mom, this pin turtle has a crown.  Why don’t I have a crown?!

image

So many pretty colors!

This shimmery ink pad looks delicious, too…

My birthday fun continues with the most amazing package from friends Tito, Nico, Joa, and their humom @anne-fine!!  @anne-fine really outdid herself this year:  My birthday box is filled with so many shell-tastic goodies!  Thank you so much, @anne-fine, for such a wonderful surprise!!  🎁🐢

As soon as Mom opened my beautifully decorated box, I dove right into my presents.  Much to Mom’s amusement, I insisted on booping every single item multiple times!  👃🐢😍

image

So many goodies just for me!

Inside was a gorgeous card in beautiful glossy cardstock with intricate paper cut-outs, including a turtle!  I booped and booped that cut-out turtle and gave him a big hug!  In fact, I wouldn’t let Mom take away the card for several minutes because I wanted to keep booping and hugging the cut-out turtle!  🐢🤗🐢

image

Cut-out card turtle, you have the most beautiful shell!

image

The shiny green leaves on the card are also suspiciously nom-like…

Once I finally stopped hugging the card turtle, Mom helped me open my presents.  First up:  A delightfully squishy turtle bread Gacha pon (capsule toy)!  🐢🍞

image

With the cutest post-it note!

image

Gacha pon Turtle, you are so cute!!

After Gacha pon Turtle came a cute wooden turtle sticker on an envelope with a delicate turtle fuku koyori, a traditional Japanese good luck charm.  I got very excited:  The turtle charm is exactly the same color as dandelion flowers!  🌼😋

Stay tuned for our next post to see the biggest surprise in my amazing birthday package from @anne-fine!  💝

Fourth of July Party 2017, Part 1

This year, ahead of friend @gckaf’s annual Fourth of July BBQ, I found a mini me for friendbeast Bucky!  Mini Bucky has beautiful soft hair colored just like Bucky’s and let me ride on top of his head, just like Bucky!  Plus, mini Bucky has delicious white toes!

image

Bonus:  Mini Bucky doesn’t mind at all when I try to nom his yummy toes!

image

Why is it that all the yummy things aren’t supposed to be nommed?!

image

Mini Bucky, I command you to take me to the place where Mom hides all my noms!

image

Uh oh, mini Bucky’s pretty hair is slippery…

image

This is a much better perch!

image

Okay, mini Bucky, let’s go find all the noms!

Hooray!  I got my special towel back from the awful washing machine!  And my towel is even softer and fluffier than before!  It is so nice on my feeties and—hang on, Mom’s shirt looks suspiciously like dandelions…

Happy first day of summer!  Summer means lots of adventures in the great outdoors.  Most importantly, it’s time for me to retest every section of the sidewalk for nom-ability!
