First, let's discuss Pimp's drinking problem. He truly has one. You see, he does not drink out of bowls like regular cats. He drinks out of the bathroom sink... and my water glass.
|Who wants to cheers?|
We all know how "helpful" cats are.
|I am happily holding down this garbage bag for mom!|
|I am also making sure she can't actually throw away some garbage.|
They had asked me for high-res photo a while back, but I totally forgot and didn't know what it was for until this arrived. Fun, huh?
|Pimp and I on a Cat Chow bag!|
So, a big box arrives at my house and I have no idea what it is. It has "Fragile" written on it, so I'm careful. It is all kinds of taped up with super-heavy-duty tape that doesn't want to cut or rip, so I work at even just opening the box for at least three minutes.
Once I get in the box, I see that it is full of packing peanuts. Pimp is pleased. He likes to bat them around. I try to figure out how to get them out of there to see what is underneath without making a huge mess.
Once I manage that, I notice that there is a ton of bubble wrap around whatever is in there. (Bubble wrap! Fun!) Yeah, no. This thing has bubble wrap wrapped around bubble wrap with huge clear packing tape securing each layer. I spend no less than 10 minutes trying to unwrap and cut the bubble wrap.
THEN I get in there and I see that it's a Cat Chow bag. There is a nice card on top of it from Cat Chow saying how nice it was to meet me earlier this year when I went up to visit and all. Very sweet!
To be honest, I don't even notice the bag. I am just slightly annoyed that I have to open it to see whatever is inside (at this point, I'm thinking they cleverly wrapped some kind of gift in a Cat Chow bag, because it's heavy, but clearly not with cat food).
So I start trying to open the bag, but it is practically super-glued shut. No cat food bag has ever been this hard to open! I contemplate just ripping it or taking scissors to it, but finally get it open (it's now been, I kid you not, 15 minutes).
And what is inside? More packing peanuts... and a piece of wood.
A piece of wood?! I have a sense of humor, but I was a little annoyed. All of this for a silly joke? Argh!
So I call my friend Tamar from I Have Cat and ask her if Cat Chow sent her something. (At this point I'm thinking they forgot to enclose whatever they meant to in the bag.) She says yes. I asked what they sent her...
And she says a Cat Chow bag with her picture. So I look at my bag, finally, and notice.
And felt completely silly and ridiculous.
Thank you, Cat Chow! This was honestly very sweet, and super cute. :)
