World Thank You Day!

Hi my furiends! It's Cody and in case you didn't know, today is World Thank You Day !

Saying "thank you" is important EVERY day of the year, not just when the calendar tells us to! Today, I have some "thank-yous" to say!

See my "buzzed" look above? See what is lying next to me? Well, that catabulous Yeowww!! Nip Nanner was sent to me by my furiend Rachel from Three Chatty Cats and Cat Lady Alley. (If you aren't familiar with her blogs, they are "must-reads" so be sure to check them out!) I have blogged about the Yeowww! line of catnip toys a few times, but Rachel didn't know that. Rachel must have had ESP because nip nanners are one of my all time faves and mine was a zillion years old and was all ratty and over-loved drooled on!
Totally "nipped" out!

Rachel was sweet and sent that Nanner to me because for some reason I wasn't receiving blog posts from her newest blog, Cat Lady Alley, and I completely missed the chance to enter her holiday contest called "12 Days of Give-Aways."  Mom and I had subscribed to her blog the day she announced the blog was beginning, and didn't know there had been a give-away til another blogger blogged about winning a prize. Mom wrote to Rachel telling her that something must have happened because her posts were no longer coming to our email,  (it appears it happened to someone else too!) and Rachel was soo sweet and felt so bad for me that she said she wanted to send me a prezzie of my own!! A Nip Nanner just for me!!! Mom and I were deeply touched by Rachel's kindness because she sure didn't have to do that. "Rachel, THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!!! You made me so happy!" You can see how much I enjoyed it in the video below, (I am so sorry that for some reason the video came out kind of fuzzy, but you get the idea!!)

I could not be happier with my surprise! I will be buzzed for weeks!

Now, we have another thank you to say but we don't know who sent this to me!!


This came from Amazon, (as did Rachel's surprise), but didn't have a note included. Mom thinks she might have won this on a dog blog (because she remembers receiving a card or an email saying Dakota won, but she can't find the card or email, and can't remember who it was!) The person had said they were sending something for both Dakota and I. Mom and I want to give a proper thank you but we can't until we know who it was that sent this to me!

Mom STILL has our holiday cards hanging up so when she takes them down (hopefully soon), she will check the back of the cards again and see if she can find out who it was that sent this most thoughtful prezzie!! I LOVE MOUSEYS!!! Mom won't let me play with it til she finds out who sent it so that she can video me playing with it.

Also, we received a number of holiday cards AFTER we had sent out ours, and because it was too close to the New Year to mail them, and Mom didn't want to send them so late, there are a few people who sent us cards that we didn't get to acknowledge or reciprocate. We are SORRY and we say THANK YOU!!!!  Each and every card was most appreciated!

Last, but not least, thanks to ALL OF YOU for being such good furiends. You are all pawesome and we think the world of you!!

Now, if you excuse me, I have a nanner to go and play with!

Love,
Cody

    1. I know it was super sweet! The other gift also had a gift for Dakota, I have to take my cards down and check the backs of them...I checked email that I saved and can't find who this is. I feel awful because I want to give them proper acknowledgement and a proper thank you!

  8. We also got a nip nana for Christmas. However my little brother took it from the cookie jar and now it's got maybe a tablespoon of cat nip left in it and a 2 inch hole in it. He got in trouble for 3 things; taking the nana without asking and getting on the tallboy desk, and knocking over the cookie jar. Moms gonna try and refill the nana and sew it back up and let me have a go with it.

  37. You really do have great toys Cody.
    I am sure that Loustiquette will be real happy to have a nip nanna.
    In France we don't have toys like that.
    We hope that our human will remember to make a list of nice toys to send to our auntie Valerie who lives in San Francisco. I mean we will have to send the list to her ... next summer she will have to bring us the toys !

  42. Great Nip Piece! Mama grows mine outside and I roll in it until I am actually stoned out of my muzzle, but it wears off pretty soon. Still, it's a nice calming agent when things get tough. Love your blog!
