Paw it Forward

Look what I got from my dear friend Ginger Jasper all the way in England! I played Paw it Forward with him and my package arrived this week!

There was a wonderful card with a very sweet message for me in it:
And look at this big box of stuff! See the big blue sticker on the side (you can click to biggify) which means the quarantine people opened MY present, and they took out the cat treats! Apparently they contained something that wasn't allowed to come into Australia. Hmpf.

Anyway, look at all the great stuff that they did let me keep! I have several new mouses, a feather boa toy, a cat tent, and a butterfly with catnip in it! So far I have been playing with the Jittery Critter and having a great time. Oh, and there was a little photo frame with a magnet on it that Ginger Jasper said I should have my mum put my picture in. I think that's a great idea.If one or two pups or kitties would like to play paw it forward with me, please let me know in the comments. The idea is you send the recipient a present, just for fun. It doesn't have to be anything expensive, and could be something that represents who you are, or even where you come from.

Thanks again Ginger Jasper, I love all my new presents!

So glad you got your package at last, but bummer they took your packets of treats out.. Glad you like your toys though,
Mum was watching a program on TV just a few nights ago and it showed them opening packages going into australia. Mum thought then that shehoped they didn't open yours and take aything out.Thats just what happened. We will know in future that we cant send food items.
Enjoy your toys..

Hugs GJ xx

What a wonderful Paw it Forward present. I received one from Purrs and Snorts, but mom hasn't posted it yet. She's a little slow lately.

So sorry you didn't get your treats. What a bummer!

What a wonderful kitty friend you have, dear Huffle.
Too bad those people took your treats. Boo!

Whitey said...

Whitey is very sorry they stoled your treats, Huffle. Thank goodness tyour toys were not stoled, too!

BeadedTail said...

That wasn't very nice for the quarantine people to take your treats but at least they left all your cool toys! It's so fun to see that a kitty from England can send such fun things to a kitty in Austrailia!

We're waiting on a Paw It Forward box to arrive from Samson and Delilah in Canada so we can't play along with you. Mommy says we can't be greedy.

Misha said...

I bet there was nothing illegal about those treats and they just nicked them for their own cats!

Hey Huffle,
Sure I want to play paw it forward with you. I've always dreamed of playing footsies with you. Do you have specific likings or do you trust me to use my own keen intelect and sense of judgement?

Ohhh, wow!!! Look at that!!

I think there are cats that work in the quarantine offices, they take my stuff too :( They must be fat and happy cats, maybe we need jobs there...

Jans Funny Farm said...

They stole your treats? We can just picture those guys in quarantine sitting around munching on YOUR treats!

Wonderful presents.

Stella said...

Very nice pressies, Huffle! Ali Z has a cat tent and she loves it, goes and hides in it when she doesn't want any company (like you-know-who!)

Have fun playing with everything!

That was a great package from GJ and his Mum - aren't they so sweet. Too bad about the treats, surprising they didn't confiscate the catnip too.

woos, the OP Pack

The Island Cats said...

Wow! What a stash of stuff you got! And double-HUMPF!!! We can't believe they took your treats! We wonder if the quarantine people took them to feed to their own cats....

The Kitty Krew said...

Wow, that was so mean of the quarantine people to take your kitty treats! But it looks like you got some really cool toys, Jasper and his mum did a great job. We hope you enjoy them!

It looks like you may have all your paw it forward friends, but if you still need someone, we'll play! We haven't done any yet and would love to play with an Australian friend. But only if you still need someone, we don't want to over-extend you. :)

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

What a sweet haul Huffle. Looks like you already had takers.

Cheyenne -Millie said...

We are sorry they took those packets of treats! Those are wonderful toys that you got to keep!

Forever Foster said...

What a great Paw it Forward gift!:)

Sometimes we think we should all get together and go and take the treats out of the quarantine people's lunch room. See how they like it then!

Milo and Alfie said...

Wow! We loved our Ginger Jasper Paws it forward too. What fun!

Simcha said...

we were worried perhaps it was kitty-dope! haroorooroooo! Probably just some Marmite.Hope you're having a great week Huffle. Love all those fancy gifts especially the kitty tent. HuMom keeps looking at the display tents in the store wondering if she could by me one as a inside sibe shelter.

Simcha (who now wants some vegamite_

The Crew said...

Wow, that's quite haul you got there, Huffle. But that's just not right that those people opened YOUR present and stole YOUR treats. I bet they ate them too!

Daisy said...

You got some wonderful loot from Ginger Jasper! I'll bet the people in customs just wanted to eat your treats all up!

Kimo and Sabi said...

Whut a score!

The Army of Four said...

Wow, that Ginger Jasper! What a heck of a nice guy! I have to wonder just who's working Customs, though. Leave Huffle's stuff ALONE, you!!!
Ammy wants to know if a cat tent is like a pup tent. Ha roo roo roo!
Enjoy your stuff, Huff!
Play bows,

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

You should give the customs people The Claw for taking your treats. That is completely unacceptable.
