A Wonderful Surprise Arrived in the Mail!

My Disciples,

One of the Guardians came home the other day carrying a package. He showed Me a letter that was in the package. It was from Anrdea, Leo and Star (aka The Celestial Kitties)! The note said that the package contained gifts to bring Me comfort while I recover from My Hipsterectomy surgery. There were also additional gifts for The Brothers and Thomas! The Guardian put the contents of the package on the living room floor and I rushed in to check them out.

01- Otis with toys

The first thing that caught My eye as I entered the living room was a pillow with a familiar face embroidered on it. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.

02- Otis with toys

I moved in to get a closer look. Is that really My Symbol!? is My face really on this pillow!?

03- Otis with toys

I had to look at it from a different angle and touch it to make sure it was real. It was!

04- Otis with toys

And oh My gosh! It smelled so good and cat nippy! I had to rub My cheeks against it.

05- Otis with toys

About that time, Brother Oliver entered the room. I held the pillow up next to Me and said, “Brother Oliver! Can you tell which one is the real Me!?”

06- Oliver with toys

Brother Oliver shouted, “This one!”, and then pounced on the pillow and began to bunny kick it. I think he thought it was pretty funny.

07- Otis with toys

I didn’t pay much attention to Brother Oliver’s antics though, because I had just discovered a fluffy tail simulating toy that was also in the package!

08- Otis with toys

I rubbed the faux tail against My face. It was glorious!

09- Otis with toys

I totally zoned out, completely lost in the fluffy goodness. I didn’t see it coming when Brother Oliver snuck up and grabbed the tail toy away from Me!

10- Oliver with toys

After stealing the toy, Brother Oliver rolled on his side and said, “Look at me! I’m Leader Otis, and I’m tail crazy!”

12- Otis with toys

Ordinarily, I might have been upset by Brother Oliver’s mockery, but I had already rediscovered My amazing pillow.

13- Otis and Oliver with toys

As I snuggled the pillow tightly to Me, I could hear Brother Oliver behind Me “harumphing” because his joke fell flat.

14- Otis and Oliver with toys

I was completely swept away by the catnippy, pillowy bliss. Brother Oliver was completely annoyed.

15- Henry with toys

While I was blissing out on My face pillow, I heard Brother Henry say, “Whoa!” He had discovered the three catnip hearts that Andrea and the kitties had included for The Brothers and Thomas. Brother Henry especially liked one with big, mancat faces on it. They reminded him of himself.

16- Henry with toys

Brother Henry climbed up on the cat tree and began playing with his new heart. He was very excited and tossed it all about.

17- Henry with toys

At one point, Brother Henry sat the heart down in front of himself and asked Brother Oliver to take his photo with it. As the shutter clicked, Brother Henry said, “Thanks Andrea, Leo and Star!”

18- Oliver with toys

After taking the photo, Brother Oliver noticed one of the other hearts sitting nearby. He said, “Whoa! This one is amazing!”

19- Oliver with toys

Brother Oliver laid down and began to play with the heart. He was very excited.

20- Oliver with toys

After playing for a few minutes, Brother Oliver asked Brother Henry to take his photo with his new heart pillow. Brother Henry obliged. As the shutter clicked, Brother Oliver said, “Thanks a lot Andrea, Leo and Star!”

21- Oliver with toys

Brother Oliver then realized he had some toejam he needed to take care of. As he began to clean his toes, Brother Henry took another photo and exclaimed, “Look! It’s another Splayed-toed Sasquatch!”

22- Oliver with toys

Brother Oliver stared at Brother Henry, dumbfounded that he had been caught unaware. While all of this was going on, I looked around and noticed that the third heart pillow that had been in the package had disappeared. I decided to go look for it.

23- Thomas with toys

I looked everywhere, and finally found the pillow up in Kitty Valhalla. Thomas must have sneaked down and grabbed it while no one was looking. He was playing with the pillow when I found him.

24- Thomas with toys

I asked Thomas if he liked the pillow. He said, “Yes! It’s dark and mysterious… kind of like me!” Then he gave Me a quick wink. It was kind of weird.

25- Thomas with toys

Thomas jumped up onto the Sacred White Cloud of Eternal Comfiness and posed next to the pillow. He asked Me to take his photo. As the shutter clicked, Thomas said, “Thanks Andrea, Leo and Star!”

26-Thomas with toys

Thomas then quickly sat up and said, “Wait! Maybe this is a better pose for an International Mancat of Mystery! Please take another photo!” I had no idea what he was talking about, but I granted his request. As the shutter clicked, he again said, “Thanks Andrea, Leo and Star!”

27- Thomas with toys

After that, Thomas could contain himself no more. He began playing with the pillow again, completely losing himself with joy. I left him to it.

Thanks so much Andrea, Leo and Star! Your gifts have definitely brought much joy and comfort to Me (and all of us) as I continue to recover from My surgery!
