My purrsday present arrived from Califurnia! Mom says I can’t open it until my actual purrsday on June 23rd. That is so wrong on so many levels. Let me tell you why:
I went all the way to Califurnia and picked out my own present. I was camped out in front of River and Simone's new etsy shop “Happy River Dances Catnip Company” for two days or so. I was furst in line too. And somecat made a little camp fire, we roasted hot dogs and smores and I ate too many of each of them. We sang camp fire songs and played duck duck goose and then Monida got there and she passed out nip cookies and milk to all the cats in line. I got so sleepy after the milk and cookie that I couldn’t keep my eyes open. When I woke up I had missed the Grand Opening. All the kitties were already inside shopping! Drats.
I ran inside and that’s when I saw it. A perfect mousie in my favorite color. But somecat had it in her paws already. So I jumped and shouted and tried to wrestle it out of her paws. “That’s my mousie. Let go of it. I was furst in line. It’s mine.”
Simone the shop owner came over. ”Now, now Mietzi – behave yourself! We got more mousies in the back. There is no reason to shout”. Ha ha, all the other cats ran with Simone to the back to look at the toys there. I grabbed the mouse I wanted, a bunny kicker for Timo (he really wanted that) and another toy for me and I ran to the cash register. Whipped out Mom’s Mastercat and that’s when River told me: Mietzi, these are just for demonstration purrposes. You just pick what you want and what color and my Mom will ship them out on the first Eagle tomorrow. But you can’t take these with you. Oh no. I can’t take them with me? They have to be shipped? Oh well, I had fun in sunny Califurnia anyway.
So the envelope arrived today and after all I’ve been thru I’m not allowed to open it.
Presents should be opened when they arrive! Who knows, maybe Simone’s Mom put a surprise trout in the package and it will spoil if I don’t open it now.
You know what else? My real purrsday is NOT on the 23rd. That’s just my Gotcha Day but Mom said we’ll just take that as my purrsday. I’m sure my real purrsday is June 9th. I remember my furr-Mom explaining: Mietzi you can always remember your purrsday. You just take the month you were born: 6 And you turn it upside down and then you have 6/9 and that’s the day you were born.
Mom is not nice at all. I’m opening my present now. Timo shouldn't have to wait any longer for his bunny kicker.
That is SO unfair! You waited so long for that present! I think you should get to open it now! Who agrees kitties?
We know all about waiting, mommy and daddy made us wait for Christmas to assemble our cat tree! It sat in a great big box and we couldn't get at it for 2 weeks!
No way No way No way you should have to wait! How can your mom do that to you? I hope there is some trout in there you know your mom will be sorry she didn't let you open it when that stuff starts to smell.
Oh no! I'm sorry my cookies and milk made you sleepy! I should have brought some nip coffee and soda instead! :) Glad you got your presents anyway, but I think you should definitely be allowed to open them!
You should get to open your present now. Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.

Tabbies and all - Oh my. The package is gone. I wonder where Mom is hiding it. Hopefully in the fridge.
Moe Moe - I feel for you, having to wait 2 weeks for your cat tree, but with Mom it would have taken her that long to put it together anyway.
Moe - I know. Mom is so unreasonable. The trout should start to stink soon.
Monida - That's OK. I shouldn't have stayed up so late the night before.
Ashlynne - Mom likes sayings like that. So I'll tell her now that I really shouldn't put anything off. Certainly not until the 23rd.
