Hey guys! I told you the other day that I would show you what I got from my Secret Paws this year. Well, today I am!

For those of you not familiar with Secret Paws, it’s the pet version of the humans’ Secret Santa…a holiday gift exchange where we’re anonymously matched up with another cat blogger.

I couldn’t wait to see what was in all those nicely wrapped presents.

And here’s what I found when all the unwrapping was done! Wowwee! Look at all the fun things! A kicker and a track ball and a couple of mousies and some treats and nip. There were even some gifts for the mom…a little notebook and cute kitty plates and a chocolate bar. The mom loves chocolate.

But my favorite thing was this pawsome catnip-infused paper bag. You know how much us cats love bags!

I had a blast with this bag!

Now tomorrow is the Pet Photo Fails blog hop…the last one of the year. And I thought I’d share some Secret Paws photo fails today. And let me tell you…the mom took a TON of bloopers of me with my Secret Paws presents. Seriously…I couldn’t stay still.

Here’re just a few with my new favorite bag.

Nah…your eyes aren’t going bad. I was a blur playing with this bag. It’s a wonder the mom got any usable shots at all.

I wanna thank my friends, Mudpie and Melissa over at  Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries & Meows for all the fun Secret Paws presents they sent me…and the mom, too.

Mudpie and Melissa also host the Pet Photo Fails monthly blog hop…so don’t forget to post your bloopers.

  1. What great gifts you got from Mudpie and her mom. That bag looks like lots of fun. Maybe it was the nip that made you blurry.

  2. WOWZERS MEOWZERS Ernie! You sure did get a whole lot of great stuff from your SECRET PAWS friends. That bag is a cool thing – I’ve seen them before but Mom says they don’t make them big enough for a 23 lb. cat so I’m out of luck. Enjoy all the goodies Ernie and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    Love, Teddy
