Our New Brother.

Haha! Bet that title got you curious!

This great package arrived from our friend in Arizona, Kari and her cats. We didn't know it was coming so it was a lovely surprise. We got the book called Kitty Humbug's Christmas Tail just before Christmas, but Kitty Humbug managed to escape so had to come separately. He got held up in the post and didn't arrive until two days after Christmas. You can imagine how grumpy he felt being stuck in a parcel in a cold postal sorting office.

Anyway, the first thing he did when he arrived was to find the prime spot in front of the wood burner where he warmed his cold toes. After some milk and some ham he felt much happier.

He felt brave enough to go and say hello to Flynn who was very interested to hear of his travels.

It was a long story but Flynn never lost interest. He did make a mental note though to never spend Christmas in a sorting office. That sounded no fun at all, no tree, no ornaments to whap. No, no fun at all.

Flynn told him it was very nice to meet him and now he should go and introduce himself to Eric.

'Hmm, where did you come from?' asked Eric. 'You seem very nice, but this is my recliner. Don't get any ideas about taking it. I have enough trouble keeping mum out of it. You follow the rules and we will get along just fine.'

Kitty Humbug then went to meet the stuffies, Little Eric and Crystal. They seemed very happy to meet him and were more his size, so he decided to take his place between them. 'Yes', he thought, 'I'm going to like it here in my new home.'

Happy New Year! Welcome Kitty Humbug! He sure did go through quite the ordeal to get to you. I am glad he has found his place in the family.

Poppy Q said...

It is 1.37am and mum is flicking through the blogs thinking she should head to bed in a minute. As soon as she has days off she turns into a night owl and goes to bed about 2am.

So a nice and quiet night at home for us tonight. Hope you all had a pleasant night and are keeping warm and toasty.

See you in 2010.

Smooches

What a warm welcome from you for Kitty Humbug. He must have had such tales to tell. And not just the Christmas one in the book, also his new adventures with the postal service.
Such an adventure prone kitty will fit right in with the family, we think.

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

You bet your title got me over here fast to meet the newest member of your family! Boy oh boy, did you trick me for certain. Kitty Humbug is so cute! Looks like you all are getting to know each other quite well. With the extra sibling you just might have to share the recliner.

Wishing you and your family the best for the new year that is about to begin!

Kari said...

Glad he's settling in. He is a good soul under his humbug exterior.
Wishing everyone the best at the turning of the year.

We love you lots!

CCL Wendy said...

Yes, you certainly got me! I was very intrigued and thought I might see a new kitten.

Well, Kitty Humbug is certainly an interesting addition to the family. I can see that Flynn and Eric are already warming up to him, and he has his placed amongst the other stuffed kitties. Very cool gift.

I've really enjoyed your blog since I joined the CB last April, and you've certainly provided me with some great LOL-fodder. Eric and Flynn are quite the characters, and they get into some very interesting situations.

Happy New Year to all at your house, and good health and happiness in the year to come!

Kitty Humbug looks like he was a lot of fun to have around!
