Thankful Thursday

Tama-Chan: Yes, it's me again! I felt that, as Queen of this house, it was up to me to send gracious thanks for something wonderful that happened to us this week.

A couple of days ago, #1 found an unexpected package in our mailbox. On closer investigation, it turned out to be from Singapore where our friends the Amigos (Bujang, Akira, Tanaka and Popps) reside with their #1, called San. It had been mailed on December 8th but, for some obscure reason, this airmail package took over a month to get to us. As a result, we have decided that post-Christmas presents are possibly even better than Christmas ones!

We had already received some fabulous Christmas gifts from The Amigos the previous Christmas but they totally outdid themselves this year! Sei-Chan and I were our usual timid themselves, but the boys eagerly went to investigate.

On opening the box, they immediately found these:

Freez-dried treats for both us and Tommy, a ball for Tommy and some very cute toys for us! There was even a spotless ladubug!

Da Beebs was the first to check it all out:

Genji wasn't too far behind...

Aside from the great toys and treats, there was also a fabulous array of collars!

I have decided that, as Queen, I shall have this one. It has a sphynx charm on it!

I have a feeling my Beebs may lay claim to the cute yellow one with the bees (Bees as in Beebs, you see. Hehehe). As for Da Genj, he hasn't made up his mind yet:

And that was not all! #1 got an absolutely fabulous gift too. You see, San did not know what she might sent for the Vs, so she sent #1 a beautiful violet-coloured scarf:

We never cease to be amazed by the kindness that comes our way from our far away friends. Thank you San, and all the Amigos. 

If you are not familiar with The Amigos and their blog, Cat Tales, you can visit them here. They are a really fun and interesting bunch of kitties and San looks after all with great love and attention. Their latest addition, Popps, was until recently a semi-feral "community cat" who was adopted by the family after she was injured in a  fight.


  1. We are glad they arrived safely and was not lost somewhere.

  2. Great and sweet gifts! Figures Da Beebs would be there first, investigating!
