Secret Paws......

We gotted our package and mom was going to make us wait.....But Miss Connie from tails from the foster kittens told her she had to open it.

First....there was a nice card. And a check.....Miss Connie had a commentathon and send mom the money to use for supplies for the kittens. Mom gotted a little choked up. But on to the box.....

You can see the whole story here: Secret Paws  (we hope)

There were nip mats and nip....the mats are out but mom hid the nip. There were toy mices...and a stocking full of balls (yeah - ping pong) and things to chase.

Mom even gotted some things. There was chocolate...and a beautiful necklace with starfish on it. Mom once again burst into tears.....she is wearing it and LOVES it.  We think it is nice too...

Thanks Miss Connie and the kitties.  :)

In case you haven't read it before, here is the starfish story:

The Starfish StoryOriginal Story by: Loren Eisley

One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed
a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean. 
Approaching the boy, he asked, "What are you doing?"
The youth replied, "Throwing starfish back into the ocean.  The surf is up and the tide is going out.  
If I don't throw them back, they'll die."
"Son," the man said, "don't you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish?  You can't make a difference!"
After listening politely, the boy bent down, 
picked up another starfish,  and threw it back into the surf.  
Then, smiling at the man, he said
"I made a difference for that one."
