A Forever Pepper and Other Gifts

I have been working on this post since last year--December 21 to be exact!

So before I start on my Pepper story, I want to say Merry Late Christmas and Happy Late New Year and I hope that everyone is safe and had a wonderful time with family and got lots of treats and tummy rubs and Catnip. I have had very Happy Holidays with my Library Staff and especially My Assistant Boss Mommy Karen who can't stay out of the library when it is Closed and spent lots of time with me when all the other slackers employees were off doing non-Tober related things.

Yesterday (really December 20, now!) in the mail I got a Forever Pepper.

It is green & orange like my little greenish orangish pepper (RIP) was, and it is cram-packed full of some powerful 'nip. I like normal catnip, but this catnip is super special. When I'm with my pepper, I lick it and bite it and chew it and bunny-kick it and rub my face on it and Love it with All My Heart.

Here we are together.

*This is where there should be a video of us playing together, but Blogger is being Bad and won't let me post it. So maybe I'll save it for later, and here's another picture.*

Because I love my Pepper so much and so violently, my Assistant Bosses have decided to keep it in my treat drawer, so that I can enjoy it while I'm being supervised. (I think they just want to take lots of pictures of me being fierce and Mancatly.) Thank you Pepper-givers for my special treat--you could probably go into business making Forever Peppers!

On Christmas AB Karen got my stocking down and I got treats! I got some from Santa and some from a kitty friend of mine named Chi.

Then, a few days later, I got some of Frankie Frank's Fabulous Feline Frenzy Inducing Homegrown Organic Catnip! And treats!

Here I am wondering why in the heck we're taking pictures of the stuff instead of rolling in it:

This Catnip is also not like the normal stuff (although I like that, too, Staff). This stuff makes my nose super-excited and I can eat whole leafs of it at a time! And then I take a nap. Thank you Kelly for my treats! Now could you please send Karen a note and let her know that she doesn't need to be all stingy with it?

My staff has been very busy un-decorating the library and leaving bits of garland and other sparkly things everywhere. They've also been working to make a January newsletter since (oops) it's now January. And on top of that they've been doing the usual library things like checking out books and shelving books and drinking coffee and eating chocolate. It's exhausting watching them work so hard.

Feeling like One Special Cat,

Happy New Year Tober! Sounds like you had a great Christmas! That toy pepper is so dang cute!

Thank you for the Christmas card and your picture too!

Wow, Tober, that pepper looks awesome! We wish we had smell on our 'puter! Happy New Year to you!!

More catnips for you! Hope you like all your presents and enjoyed the season.

It sounds like things are back to normal at the library, Tober, with the exception of extra added catnip (although never quite enough of it!).

Happy New Year Tober!

We think you got some great Christmas gifts...just thinking about all that nip makes us dribble a little. We fully agree that you should have as much as you like.

Mommy says she would like to come work for you and eat chocolates and drink coffee. She's rather good at both!

Sounds like you had a nice Christmas. Happy 2011.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We are very glad you received some great gifts for Christmas! That little pepper is sure cute and nip is so wonderful!

We have a nip banana and a nip carrot that we adore. Maybe you will get those this year for Christmas!

We are very glad your AAB blog Helper is taking care of the Porch Kitty. Porch Kitties people really should do a better job, but at least the kitty is being taken care of. Give your AAB blog helper some gentle headbutts from us for being so good to that kitty.

Gosh, Tober, I am SO jealous! Nobody gives me great forever peppers at my library. Just bowls of hard food, pretty much 24/7, which is none too shabby, but, still, a hardworking kitty deserves special treats now and again.

Your feline friend,
