DAISY MAE’S 1ST SECRET PAW!!🎄🎄🎄🎄

Hi everyone, guess who it is? Well did you guess who, hah, hah, hah, hah? If you guessed it’s me Daisy Mae then you’re right. If you are wondering what’s a Secret Paw I can assure you’re not alone. You see the Secret Paw program is similar to the Secret Sister or for you men the Secret Brother Program. The first thing you have to do is whether or not if you want to join. The Secret Paw Program is done on a yearly basis meaning if you want in 2021 you’ll join in November or early December then if you don’t want in the next year no worries, no problem.

When Mom Crystal told me she signed me up for the Secret Paw Program, I was really excited. It meant I got to share Christmas not just with my family but with my Secret Paw. Also, it meant I got to show a special Kitty Cat some love by sending them a special gift. 

This is my 1st Secret Paw Christmas. No, No this isn’t my 1st Christmas. Actually far from it. You see I’m 14 years old, a few months, a few days and a few hours old. Actually next year, I become old enough to become a Crotchety Cougar.

I got my gifts to that special Kitty Cat & Mom Crystal picked out and paid for the gifts. She had the tough job. The package was sent and delivered — Yeah!! 

Well guess what? I finally got my gifts from my Secret Paw Yesterday in the mail which was December 12, 2020. Although my gifts came yesterday, Mom Crystal And I only opened the one.  I hated to have to wait to Christmas Eve Day to open my gifts, which is tradition at our house. So what did I get? OOOOHHHH…. wait to you hear. I got:

1. Pet Water Fountain.

2. Fresh Pack Treats — A variety of flavors.

3. 30 oz. Chicken Treats by Temptations.

4. A pole with a feather at the end that extends up to 4 feet.

5. laser light.

6. Mom Crystal got Goats Milk soap.

That’s right, my Secret Paw was nice enough and thoughtful enough to get Mom Crystal something too.

We want to give a huge Thank You to my Secret Paw and their Human.

You all are probably wondering who my Secret Paw  is. So who is it? Well first, let me say I was really surprised who it was. Second, my Secret Paw wasn’t one Kitty Cat like I expected it was group of pets. Their names are: Sherpa, Harry, Puffball, Fang, Queenie and Cappuccino the Bunny plus we can’t forget their human Patty.

I want to thank you all for my nice gifts. I love them and Mom Crystal loves her gifts too. I love them so much, I think I might get in it next year if all goes well.

P.S. If anyone knows what their blog site address is, please let us know. Thanks Again.

Mom Crystal And I Daisy Mae, want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy New Year to you all. We also hope it will be a healthy and safe 2021 too.

Almost Wordless Wednesday & A Special Pet Parade

Today Daisy Mae And I have an almost Wordless Wednesday & A Special Pet Parade for Christmas week. OK so there are no animals in the picture unless you count that guy in the red sleigh in a red suit with a black belt. Technically, Santa is an animal too.

A Christmas joke for you all today.

Christmas Joke: Why shouldn’t you pick a fight with Santa Claus?

Answer To Christmas Joke: Because he has a black belt!!

With Heavy Hearts….

Daisy Mae And  are just heartbroken. We found out today more of our Kitty Cat friends have earned their wings and passed over The Rainbow Bridge. With 2020 being rough on us all in one way or another and Christmas around the corner, we’ve a lot to do including keeping 2020 at bay. The year 2020 has taken so many of our pets and Kitty Cat friends and made their Human owners heartbroken and really, really sad.

In the last few days, we have found out that we need send condolences to more Human pet owners. This time, they lost their Kitty Cats. To give these pet owners condolences please visit their sites and leave a comment. The most recent pet owners who lost a pet are:

Miss Ellen at 15 AND MEOWING  who just lost Jinx, her beautiful Kitty Cat.

Gracie from animal shelter volunteer life earned her wings and joined Jinx over The Rainbow Bridge.

Finally, Henri from his you tube channel Henri Chat Noir  . 

These 3 Kitty Cats joined the other pets who passed in 2020 and before and left their owners heartbroken. Although right now sadness and plenty of tears are in these pet owners eyes, in time their pain will ease but one thing is 100% for sure and that’s they’ll never forget their pet they lost.

Although all the pet owners who lost a friend in 2020 and before are sad right now always remember, your pet may not be by your side but will always be in your heart.

Your memories are golden of your pet and are meant to be shared with your friends & family. I don’t know what else to say Daisy Mae And I are just heartbroken at these deaths and so many happening too.

For those of you skeptical of The Rainbow Bridge, I assure you that there is a pet heaven too. Now I never heard of The Rainbow Bridge until I started  blogging but always believed that there was a Pet heaven. God loves all his animals and will always love them.

To those who recently lost a pet, our condolences. If you ever lost any type of pet in 2020 or before, you know the heartbreak of losing a pet. Yes, I even know that heartbreak and sadly have experienced many times over like some of you probably have.

Best Wishes To All Of You.

Always remember my friends, Cats leave paw prints on our hearts.

Cyber Monday 2020

OUR CAMP NEAR THE WOODS IN 2017.

Cyber Monday 2020 has come and is almost over. Some places like Amazon had Cyber Monday longer than just 1 day. How many of you were shopping all day? I usually don’t shop on Cyber Monday but this year I did. You see I got into this Christmas Program called Secret Paws well Daisy Mae did and I just get to spend the money[more about that in a later post]. I’ve had fun shopping on Amazon for the past few days and finally put my order in tonight. I can’t wait to hear about your Cyber Monday shopping adventures and things went. I know just when I thought I had my gifts and set to order Amazon, they said the items couldn’t be shipped to that address. Not one item so back to the drawing board.
