Friends Tito, Nico, Joa, and their humom @anne-fine included the most wonderful personalized present in my fabulous birthday package: A pouch with photos of me* printed all over it, handmade by @anne-fine herself!! 👛🐢😍😍
Mom and I both got so excited about our new pouch! Mom can’t wait to carry around my cute face everywhere, and I couldn’t wait to nom every bit of our pouch, including all those photos of my own face! 😋🙊 Even the packaging for the pouch was delicious! (Mom had to literally pry the packaging from my mouth because I loved it so much!) 😋🥺
Friends Tito, Nico, Joa, and their humom @anne-fine sent me the most fabulous birthday present package, decorated with so many pretty colors and filled with so many goodies that we can’t even share them all in one post!! 📬🌈🎁💝
First up: The most adorable washi tape featuring my namesake and Waddle Dee, packaged with the sweetest message! Washi tape is for nomming, right? 😍😋🐢
This Good Friday, we are taking a moment to remember our bun friend Milk Foam Cappuccino Paper Stain Espresso. Milk Foam was a most excellent investigator of all paper piles, climber of all things that could be climbed, and nommer of laundry, with a most fabulous fluffy coat that required constant pets from caretaker (Iri)epsi @epsifawnshawn!
Sadly, Milk Foam hopped off this mortal coil last summer. To remember his royal bun-ness, we secretly commissioned a custom Milk Foam pom pom from Pompom Wonderland for (Iri)epsi. Henry at Pompom Wonderland far exceeded our expectations: We and (Iri)epsi could not be more pleased with this amazing rablica of Milk Foam! Now Milk Foam can go on even more adventures, far and wide!
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!! 🎂😍
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!)
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!! ❤️❤️❤️🐢🐢🐢🐦
Five!, Part 11 (Parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10)
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!
All of our lovely stamp materials were wrapped in a 100% cotton bag that I sniffed and booped all over!
Mom, this pin turtle has a crown. Why don’t I have a crown?!

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! 👃🐢😍
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! 🐢🤗🐢
Cut-out card turtle, you have the most beautiful shell!
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)! 🐢🍞
With the cutest post-it note!
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! 💝
