A Long Overdue Post

A while ago, we won a water fountain from The Island Cats.  The mom wanted to save it for when The Girl came home cause she loves opening packages.  Since The Girl came home over the weekend, we got to finally open the package!

There doesn't appear to be any hexes or curses on this box
says Inspector General Oui Oui.

In fact, it's mighty comfy!

I'm gonna hang here for a while, if you don't mind.

ZZZZzzzzzzzz . . .

What do you mean, get off!
How rude can you be?

Look what was inside!
TLWTYH has really pretty writing!

There was a very pretty card extolling the virtues of kitties,
treats, toys and the fountain!

The fountain was super simple to set up.

But there is NO way I'm going near it!

Seriously, The Girl, it's scary!

Well, maybe not that scary . . .

** sniff, sniff  **
Can I sit on the side of it and still keep my butt dry?

Oui Oui can be the brave one,
I'm sticking to normal things, like toys.

Did you say toys???

They are mine!!

ALL mine!

Thanks, Wally, Ernie and Zoey!
I just love all these toys (especially the litte purple mousie)
and I don't intend to share!

That's ok, I prefer treats anyway.

Hey!  We've never had this favor before!
Even I like it!

Of course, if the mom had bought it,
I probably would be inclined to stick my nose up at it.

Nom, nom, nom!
Just give us treats, Oui Oui can have the toys!

And the winner is Julie by half a handful!

Thanks so much Wally, Ernie & Zoey!  How kind you are, you are the bestest!  Thank you so much for the thoughtful gifts besides the fountain. We love you guys (and gal) too!

We have to say, Oui Oui is the bravest of us all.  She even took a lick of the water while the fountain was turned off, and she didn't melt or keel over or anything!  MMM remained under the bed, and Carl and Julie stayed in the hallway.  The three of them just wanted the treats! 

The mom is letting the fountain sit there and after everyone is used to it, will try turning it on again.  And at least, Oui Oui didn't sit on the rim and flip it over, like she does with regular water bowls.  The mom was grateful for that!  And we are grateful for such wonderful, considerate friends!  Thanks again, Island Cats!

Oh Oui Oui you darling girl. Julie, your gorgeous hunka femininity, and MMM you mysterious girl who knows all, sees all and tells nothing...what a wonderful gift you got. I bet if I could only find a place to plug it in, I too could be anxious about a fountain but all places and plug are taken where there is no carpeting..so...

Katie Isabella said...

Mom is trying hard not to go "there". Sooner or later that and the second blog will lose its savor? Surely.

Mommy would love to get us a fountain but she knows she'll only regret it because Tutu would probably stand in the fountain and flick water all over the place. MOL!
That's a great package from the Island Cats. Enjoy your toys and treats and we hope you'll learn to love the fountain in time!

Oh I hope you get used to that fountain. I have one of those and just love it. My peeps took the filter out of ours tho cuz I didn't like the taste of the water with that charcoal in there. I use it most of the time. When it reaches the point where it needs a good cleaning, I let my peeps know by drinking out of the bathroom sink instead.

MeezerMom said...

we haf two of those but the mom will not set them up 'acause Billy will bathe in them.

Pat Hatt said...

haha we had a fountain for a few days, it was too scary.

The Whiskeratti said...

Those are pawsome presents, guys. Enjoy them!


What a wonderful post. We got one of those fountains and for weeks and weeks none of us would go near it and little by little Mom has watched each of us drink out of it! So there is always hope.

Brian said...

We love our fountain, although it did take us a while to get used to it!

Cats Herd You said...

That fountain looks like fun! The cats who came before us had a fountain a long time ago and got used to it after a while. We're sure you'll love it. In the meantime, the toys and treats look like they'll keep you plenty busy!

Karen Jo said...

You got an awesome package. I hope you get used to your fountain. Enjoy your treats and toys. Thank you so much for purring for Bambino. He is eating more and seems to feel a little better.

Annie Bear said...

What a great package you guys got from The Island Cats! I had to laugh about Oui Oui sitting on the rim of water dishes, lol. She is so cute with those toys. I just love her face. Looks like the treats were the biggest hit overall with everyone.

Thanks for your sweet words about the big guy. Every day, he's getting better. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. :)

Moosey and Zoe say you kitties should go for it -- drinking from the fountain is fun! :)

Thanks for all your purrs and prayers for Moosey. They are helping, for sure.

Much love and headbonks to you all!

The Island Cats said...

Yay! We're glad you liked your package. Oui Oui, we loved seeing you sitting on the box. Did your mom let you keep the box?? :)

We hope you get used to the fountain. We have one and Wally uses it more than the rest of us. And I have a little purple mousie like that one and it's one of my favorite toys too.

We love drinking fountains! Sadly, we don't have one at the moment. But we were never scared of them, at least not for more than a few hours or a day. We just don't scare easy!

Kitties Blue said...

How pawsome to win a fountain and get toys and treats as well. Ernie, Wally and Zoey are terrific kitties and friends. Not all of us liked our fountain at first (Stainless steel Drinkwell 360), but now we all use it and love it; though, some of us still favor the water bowl by the kitchen sink. Bet you all will be using that very soon. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
