Always Thankful -- It's the Thought that Counts

This is an old, old picture of me. I guess the New Year's festivities have sent me into nostalgia world. This is a hammock that our neighbor Esther gave me for Christmas one year.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I must admit that I only used it the one time. I tried it a few times when HH first opened it for me, but it's a hammock... it tips and rocks. Those are not movements that I'm interested in during nap time.

But, HH wanted to show her appreciation to Esther for the present, so she rubbed the hammock with nip one day and I hopped right up on it. She took the picture, showed it to Esther the next time she saw her, and all was well...

I never did get used to it unless there was plenty of nip involved. Definitely not my favorite gift, but, as HH says, "It's the thought that counts."

Did you get any crazy gifts this year? What was your favorite and your least favorite?

mason mommy and daddy think my claws are out of control so they got me an emery cat. this makes me mad. i don't like it and i won't use it. it smells a little like nip but its too hard and it hurts my old feet, and the toy feather on it is lame. i'll trade you for the hammock ^..^

Well we like all our gifts. Or favorite is the nip cigar. Mainly we like boxes and bags. We are a cheap date. We were thinking about getting a hammock but maybe we won't now. Have a great day.

my favorite gift was a gift I actually gave to myself, joining Weight Watcher's. I have lost 20lbs since Oct 2nd...I have a long way to go though!

my least favorite happens to also be tied to food, a gift card to Cold Stone still remains unused in my wallet...what a gift to give someone who is trying to lose weight huh? lol (but the person didn't know) you said..."it's the THOUGHT that counts!"

Tracy said...

YES, it is the thought that counts and this year, I didn't get any gifts where I had to say that to myself :)

Brian said...

We actually loved all of our gifts this year, and the boxes and paper were an added bonus!

My favorite gift was my candy-cane-shaped rawhide! It tastes like sweet potato, one of my favorite flavors! I liked all my other gifts too, so no bad gifts this year!
Happy New Year.

Sammy and Andy said...

Awwwwwwwwww, what a cute picture of you, Max.

Andy loves all pressies we get, but Sammy is uninterested unless it is something to eat.....nip doesn't even interest him anymore!!!! Mama and Andy worry about Sammy cuz at 13 he is really slowing down.

Love to you and your HH

I got tuna flakes. They are definitely my favorites!

he he - pretty cleaver on HH's part. I never have too much interest in toy - just now and then I'll go through a streak. Then when M buys a new toy to replace one I really did seem to like, I lose interest in it. Most of the time I think someone just to dangle a string. But every now and then I'll take an interest in batting a ball or mousie around.

Nothing crazy for me this year, aside from booties that I will never use, nopnopnopnopnopnopnop!!!

My human is still trying to get that flying saucer to work...

This is the first year with my mom, and I love my presents. I got scratching post and A funky feather teaser. I love both but my most favorite is A funky feather teaser because after I played this, I got the real birdy : )

I loved all my Christmas gifts, but my fav has got to be the GIANT bucket of treats from Scarlet and Zoe, my cousins. I just have to work out how to climb into the pantry and GET TO IT! Mum is rationing me....Boooo! Tail Wuggles, Rubie.

Carolyon said...

Ooo! What a lovely hammock! You don't like it that much... Hmmm maybe is was meant for the girl kitties...

Vicky said...

Every gift is my favorite gift, because they were all given in love.

Happy New Year!
