Hey guys. Ernie here. Last Wednesday, February 7, was Send a Card to a Friend Day…a day to let your friends know you’re thinking of them by sending them a card. Y’know, in this day of email and texting, sending cards and letters by “snail mail” is becoming a thing of the past. It’s nice that there’s this special day to remember your friends.

We got a package in the mail

So, we were really excited when this package arrived the other day. It came all the way from Switzerland! I think that’s a loonnngggggg ways away from our island.

The Swiss Cats sent us a card

Inside was this card and fun mat from our friends, Pixie and Zorro. You know them, don’tcha? They’re the Swiss Cats!

Such a pretty card!

Here’s a closer look at the card. Isn’t it pretty? We remember when Pixie and Zorro were picking out a card to send to a friend. Little did we know that we would be the ones getting it!

This mat smells like Pixie and Zorro

Ernie…their mom, Miss Claire, made this mat just for us. How cool is that?!? Miss Claire is very talented.

We love our friends

Thank you, Pixie, Zorro and Miss Claire for thinking of us on Send a Friend a Card Day! We feel so special having such good friends like you!
