...tausend Dank, Lil' Sis ! [aka Critter Christmas gifts from Germany...]

it can be a small world sometimes...
and the kindness of people I've never met...
never fails to touch my heart...

global communication can be problematical...
however...there are some true commonalities...
no matter where or who you are...

some of these common grounds include music...
the appreciation of beauty in the world...
and the love of the animals we live with...

through this blog, I've come to know...
some generous people who've shared my joy...
when Molly "arrived"...
and my sorrow at the loss of several kitties...
since this blog began in August of 2007...

I really got started blogging...
after Miz Minka wrote about the loss of my Bubba...
since then, I've said good-bye to Tippy, Robbie & Gracie...
and hello to Molly...
meeting many kind humans along the way....

my little "herd" has been the beneficiary...
of several gifts from Lil' Sis to Minka...
that were ignored by HRH, Minka...
but LOVED when they got here...
as "hand-me-downs"or de-cluttering flotsam...

so it was a very nice surprise...
when Miz Minka handed me a couple of items...
that Lil' Sis had sent to her, to give to my gang !



even a personal greeting for Molly...
[does this mean that now L'il Sis...
is an "honorary" doggy God-Aunt ?...
since Big Sis [MM] is Molly's God-Mom ?]



and, just in case you can't read the writing[UnkelPhil...]
it does say, mït Kaninchen...



upon taking the treat stick gently from me...
Molly retreated to her nest[ALL good things get this treatment...]



where she settled down & devoured it...



immediately being thankful to her "God-Aunt"...
and begging for more...

the Kittie treats were also inscribed...
but Lil' Sis used my real name...



so you get to see only this much...



the treats are little letters...



and attracted the herd right away...



MJ & Lucyfur, being the vanguard...



with MJ being especially thankful to his nice friend in Germany...
who's sent the cat treat ball he loves to play with...
the catnip mousie he enjoys...
and now... the yummy "Felix" treats...

many thanks, Lil' Sis for your generosity & kindness to my gang...
I hope that someday we can thank you in person...

Good morning Catsinger!
Great fun to make pets and their owners a little happy! To give is more rewarding than to receive... :)
OK: I see myself now as "honorary God-Aunt of Molly" :)
By the way, it is Lil'Sis. ;)
Have a nice Sylvester and a good new year - take good care of your darlings - with your loving big heart!

...thanks Lil'Sis...
[I stand corrected... ;D]

and I agree that "giving is more fun than receiving"...though Molly & the kitties might not go along with me on that... ;D

thanks again...you are always welcome here... hope to see you on Facebook...

...oh, Lil'Sis...
what do you mean by "have a good Sylvester"...? is it a Saint's day or German celebration that I'm not familiar with ?

and a happy New Year to you too...

"Good Sylvester": I meant celebrating New Years Eve, or is it Day? Oh well, here we are going to parties or stay at home and light lots of fireworks and crackers and so on at midnight. Germans spend millions on these items each year. What a waste of money... :) But it's fun!
