Merci des cadeaux!

Dear Ruthanne,

Thank you so much for sending my pet those wonderful Valentine goodies. I must say: Your idea of a Valentine was much more impressive than mine. Just so you know that everything arrived safely, I have included a photo:


Let's start with the Laura Secord chocolate hearts and Hershey Kisses. Do you know how helpful those are? Every evening, my pet always thinks to herself, 'Do we have anything sweet to eat? I just want dessert.' Finally, we'll be able to give her something to stop her endless musings.

The lovely pink socks covered in hearts is also a godsend. Perhaps now I won't have to hold my breath when I jump onto the loveseat to be by her. I will just encourage her to put those on from now on before I snuggle with her.

And as for the "matches-nothing-so-goes-with-everything" scarf, the pet has stated that too much workmanship went into making it so it cannot possible be a cat toy. To say I am disappointed is an understatement. Perhaps she does not realize that she did not get me anything for Valentine's Day.

I must finish this letter now before I cry. Thank you once again for looking out for her.

Au revoir,

Sorry Zeus, I have to agree that that scarf is way too good to be a toy. Cool gifts - your pet was very lucky but it's a shame you didn't get anything...surely you got a cuddle? :-)

zeus, life's tough... I got back too 30 minutes too late to pick up my dog from the kennel where he's been since yesterday morning when I left town. And since they're closed tomorrow...

What a lovely package! I'm terribly jealous. I got nothing for VDay. :-(

And tell your pet I can completely understand that needing/wanting something sweet after dinner. There's no chocolate in my house because of that.
