Pressies from Our Kitteh Cousins

Wowie! We got some really great pressies from our kitteh cousins all the way in the redwood forest of California.

They even sent a message

Mr. Mango and The Labradude,

Please accept our apology for this late holiday gift. Of course, you being dogs and this being food, it may not matter all that much...

Those Who Must Serve Us seemed to have surpassed our already low expectations by sending the first gift to the old manor that fell into enemy hands years ago. We have taken action to make sure this will not happen again. It's amazing how effective a few rotting mouse heads can be when placed where their clumsy hands cannot reach.


Popcorn and the Panther Sisters


A little holiday tree stuffed with noms!

Figures, he gets his first.

What? Just a little crumb for my labraself? Are you kidding me? Just wait until lights out. I know where the stash is.

Can you believe that measly little crumb I got? Momma claims I already had a whole cookie, but I don't recall that at all.

Having never met my cousins, I asked if they could send photos and some words about themselves. I understand that my Uncle Gary found the Popcorn kitteh frozen solid in the woods, but he was able to thaw her out and she is quite fierce. As for the Panther Sisters, well, kind of scary. Here are their actual words...

We really don't approve of having our photos taken, but at times we are forced to follow the hideous will of Those Who Must Feed Us.

Note from Popcorn - As a connoisseur of all that is huge and excessive, Mr. Mango should appreciate the Panther Sisters frightening rate of growth. It (they appear to be a single organism) is only one year old, yet has a combined weight of almost 30 pounds.

The Josie-thing almost crushed Karen as her vast belly is being serviced.

Only one part of the Panther Unit has ever been observed awake at any given time, so it's obvious they share a single catbrain.

I don't know why they even bothered giving them separate names - I can't tell them apart.

Note from the Panthers - Just ignore Popcorn's bad attitude - she's a grumpy old biddy who was born over 15 year ago, which we think was near the end of the Pleistocene ice age.

Pippa still remembers how the father of They Who Must Feed Us had such a gentle touch (not) when she was a just a kitten.

As you can see, the Son resorted to a similar technique just to take Josie's picture. The Panthers will exact their revenge.

The Cats

They also included this photo of the Popcorn kitteh communicating with her alien friends.

Thanks for the noms, kitteh cousins, but maybe it is a good thing that you stay far away from the estate. I am ill prepared for visitations from weird resurected from the dead 200 year old predators or giant mutant two headed lurkers who could crush me in my sleep.

Dexter done!

OMD, those panthers look like they can be a MINI Mango! HUGE... almost RELENTLESSLY. (I wrote "almost".)

Niamh said...

Those are some scary kitties! But they sent good treats so that is ok.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Priscilla said...

Cookies look really yummy! Good friends are friends who send you foods!

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

It was awful nice of your ktty kuzzins to send treats to a couple of dogs! I don't think those panther sisters or Popcorn are half as bad as they would have us believe!

Frankie Furter said...

Dexter could you please drop some of the Nom Crumbs down the steps?? Some of us are STARVING down here. We will hardly be able to help with the WORK soon.

Living in a house inhabited by such creatures, I totally enjoyed the pictures and info about Popcorn and the Panther Sisters. One look at that massive maw of Mango's would surely deter them from visiting. But then again having one BT with an equally scary looking mouth, not much scares me or our felines. Dexter it always seems that you are getting the short end of the nommies, er, stick. I will not fall for such attempts to garner sympathy. Good weekend to all. Ann TBL

sagechronicles said...

Nom, nom, nom....treats!!! Those kitteh's are really pawsome!

Marjie said...

They sent noms all the way from the redwood forest? And they sent them to the wrong estate? They must be confused. Oh, well, at least the gifts finally made it. Maybe the panthers are dreaming of becoming Labradudes or Labradudettes.


the booker man said...


hmmmm...since your kitty cousins sent good noms, i guess they are alright. but there's somethingie kinda sinister about them, though.

the booker man

pee s -- would you pretty please pass on thankies to the RH for takin' time to vote for my new header pic even though he's up to his schnoz in MM stuff?

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Dex, You kill me with laughter! Dare I suggest your Mom get your YOUR OWN blog???


houndstooth said...

Dexter, this is one of your funniest posts ever! Bwaaaaa ha ha! Oh, do tell me you snuck in and got the rest of the treats!


Carol from Down Under said...

Dexter I agree that crumb was hardly worth the effort of swallowing. Get those sweet eyes working boy. Also the kitteh communicating with aliens is soooo familiar at our house. Is this how kittehs communicate with each other around the world? No worries, love Carol.

tula said...

yep no question about it.. they're definitely family!

mango that was a bite-sized cookie!

snowed in,woo can find me in my igloo.. just knock furst.

Maggie and Mitch said...

Whoa! Those kittehs know which doggie cookies to choose! yummmmmmmmmm

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Sagira said...

Look at all those yummy treats...making me drool

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Whoa, you also have kitteh cousins! Who also cannot visit your estate, although for reasons other than the reasons ours cannot visit us, i.e., the liklihood they would end up as kitteh sushi thanks to Abby's strong prey drive. Your cousins have a charming and amusing narritive style; did they learn that from you?

It was most thoughtful of them to send you Christmas noms, all the more welcome, we are sure, as the rest of your Christmas treats must be long gone by now. What did you send them for Christmas? We always give our kitteh cousins stupid tiny catnip toys and get nice noms in return, which is an excellent rate of exchange for us.

Suprised you didn't enter your cousins instead of Stuffed Kitteh in MM 2011; the cousins sure have catitude in spades!

Good dogs deserve good treats from good friends.

Everything fits. Perfectly. Good deal.

(We miss you. We're frustrated with Moma. But at least she's letting us read once in a while ... if not write. MangoMinster seems to be develop swimmingly. We expected no less. Thanks for letting us enjoy it from the sidelines this year. Your'e amazing.)

Stanislaw said...

A DOUBLE KITTY??!! Are you SERIOUS?? Does it have 2 bums to sniff too?? Oh my feasting. I'm getting light-headed...

Sue said...

Mango, what big chompers you have!! We don't have any cat friends that send goodies. That looks grossly unfair, Dexter. You got only a crumb compared to that enormous cookie for Mango.

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Um. Yes. 15 years ago was pretty much the end of the Pleistocene era, especially where kittehs are concerned. (Hey, the saber-tooth kitteh didn't evolve from pond scum, you know...) We're actually just a wee bit frightened by the picture of the RH's gaping maw. Possibly more than 'a wee bit' actually. Oy. But hey, nommy pressies are good pressies!

Mmmm... C-A-T-S can send foodable presents to dogs? Now THERE is a new wrinkle to think about. Those ARE scary looking black cats, though. Grammy says they sure have shiny glowing coats, that she thinks is pretty... The CCC

Moose said...

Your kitteh cousins are funny! And is that like a whole tube of cookies? I don't know any kittehs but wish I did!

Moose said...

Oh my eyes! I hope she found some pants before she got to Framingham!
