More Pressies for Everyone, and The Park

Yesterday was a day of excitement! We got a Big Box from Drs. Foster and Smith. And I know that these people sell dog toys. And treats. Grandpa says they sell a whole bunch of other stuff, too. But I’m not really interested in stuff for ponds. Sorry, Grandpa!

So, I KNEW when Mom opened the box that there would be all sorts of goodies for me! Okay, and to be fair, for TaiChi, and even, get this- for Bufus!

Mom and Dad got me one of those big orange monkey things. And then proceeded to amuse themselves…..

*sigh* Look at what I have to do to amuse these humans….

Note from Fi's Mom: Heh. If you notice they both have the same facial expression, right down to the tongues!

Still, the monkey is pretty cool!

TaiChi got a bunch of treaties. Although she showed a brief interest in my monkey. Luckily, however, unlike the Mango-PeeWee dynamic, TaiChi just investigated and then moved along.

Now on to Bufus. From what I have seen on teevee, Cats Don’t Like Water. Yet Bufus has been seen in the shower. And has actually been known to demand (on pretty much a daily basis, if you must know) that the shower be turned on for him. So Mom thought that he might like his own water fountain.

Note from Fi’s Mom: So far, no one has actually seen Bufus playing in/drinking the water, but the water levels have been dropping (and refilled). So we’re guessing that he likes it. But he still likes his showers. So maybe the water fountain hasn’t completely fulfilled his need for running water. Who knows? He’s a Very Strange Cat.

Anyhoo, after much playing with Pressies (thanks Granny and Grandpa!), Mom and Dad decided that I should go to The Park. Notice that I say “Mom and Dad decided” – me? Eh. It was hot. And I need a haircut. And there was another dog there. And I just wasn’t interested in the whole Park Experience. But Mom used the flashy box anyway, and got some pictures.

Note from Fi’s Mom. Today was Really Hot for us – it was in the high 80s, and Fi is starting to get wooly again. Although I’m looking at the weather from where we were in Arizona this winter… 116 today. Ugh. Regardless…. Fi needs a haircut. Although it was pretty amusing with the other dog at the park; she’s not socialized with other dogs, and we didn’t see the dog (he was down the hill by the tennis court) until he started barking – Fi dashed away until she realized that she was Much Faster than the other dog, and then went chasing after him, knowing full well that he couldn’t catch her. Luckily, there were no dog-on-dog incidents, and the other dog was brought into the tennis court, so Fi had the opportunity to completely ignore the toy thrown for her….

Note, I have completely passed the toy here....

Heh. Here I've got Bell's Flying Butt Syndrome. I think it might be contagious!

Ear Flappage!

Now it's time to nap while Mom and Dad watch these people on two-wheeled thingys riding around France and stuff....

*kissey face*

That is one fun orange monkey - your facial features are strangely similar???

You got some great pressies - and it looked like you had fun at the dog park - you have one very strange cat-bro.

Lots of licks
