Packing My Secret Paws Gifts

I'm not sure what Binga is doing with the bag - that has the human gifts in it!

It took us long enough to get our Secret Paws gifts together! And it is mainly because some things we ordered before Thanksgiving did not arrive until this week! I was kind of sad about that because our Secret Paws partner is outside of the U.S. and this means the box will be arriving late.

This is what happens when humans buy wrapping and bows separately

On top of that, mistakes were made. My human bought the wrong colored bows to go on the badly-wrapped gifts (seriously, she wraps presents like a 4-year-old), so we wound up skipping the bow part.

I could have told her they wouldn't fit

Then the first box we tried was clearly too small!

These gifts may have an extra-strong tortie scent

I won’t even get into Binga’s wrapping “help.”

My human could NOT have done this without my help!

But finally everything got packed, the card got signed and my human dropped it off at the post office on Friday! I hope my Secret Paws partner thinks it is worth the wait!

    We’re very sure that the recipient(s) will love everything and think it was worth the wait!

    As for wrapping, even a 4-year old could do a better job than our human!

    What a relief to know that our Meowma is not the only one who “couldn’t wrap a present decently even if my life depended on it”.
    Silly humans, it is not how it is wrapped, it is what is inside. Though we do like to play with the wrapping paper, before and after. 😈 πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜† Late is not always a bad thing. It is just something more to look forward to.
    Purrs and a Merry Christmas,

    That all looks terrific to us and we know that the cats will be extremely happy with all that loot. Christmas snuck up on everyone. Have a great day.

    Mommy was really bad and didn’t take any photos when she was packing up our secret paws’ gifts. You can see what we sent our recipients, however, today at Cat Wisdom 101. We are not being allowed to open our gifts from Silver Meow until Christmas. Looks like you really sent a lot of goodies. Your recipients won’t mind waiting. Mommy wants to know where you found the Hello Kitty wrapping paper. She would buy a case if she knew. Have a great Caturday. Meowy Catmess…MOL, HO, HO,HO!

    Wow….lookie at all that fun stuff you have to go in the Secret Paws box for your Paws blogger! I’m SURE they will be most thrilled to get the box from you WHENEVER it arrives. You’re right about how long it takes to ship across the pond though – FOREVER AND EVER sometimes it seems. Anyway, I think you’ll find you scored big when you hear from whoever you’re sending it to!!

    Holiday Hugs, Sammy

    We’re sure that your Secret Paws partner will understand, and that your gifts are worth of waiting for a while ! We are worrying a lot about our Secret Paws too : we sent it on December 7th, and it’s not arrived yet ! Purrs

    MOL about wrapping gifts like a four-year-old. We supervised the head peep wrapping, and she put all the secret paw gifts in a single, decorative box, not realizing they should be separately wrapped. We are anxiously awaiting confirmation from our recipient that they have the gifts, since they were already delivered.

    We’re sure your Secret Paws will love their package, Sparkle! We had to improvise this year because stuff we ordered has yet to arrive…so we made the mom go to the store to buy more stuff for our Secret Paws. We wonder if this means we get to keep the stuff that we ordered. How fun!!

  11. says

    I am sure the lucky kitty who gets it will be thrilled! We ordered our stuff on Nov 30th and it didn’t ship til I think the 18th. I am far from pleased. Cody hasn’t received his yet either, oh well!
