Pining Away...

Hi-ya' kitties - the 'rents got back late Monday night. They got the Back of Disrespect for about 3.7 seconds - I had really, really missed them! Our sitter is great, but nothing is as good as Mommy and Daddy. They slept a lot yesterday and today they go back to hunting and being not-on -vacation anymore.

And what did they get for me? Tahoe Catnip? A T-Shirt? A Mountain Mousie? Some fresh California fish? Noooooooo.... I was brought a Pine cone. A Pine cone...gosh, thanks...
It does, however, smell interesting...Powder and I gave it a thorough sniffing.

I love the 'rents, but their choice in souvenirs leaves a little to be desired...

Honestly Parker, if all I got was a pine cone, I'd be very disappointed too.

Well I'm glad they're back for you ... but a pine cone? Mind you ... it's a magnificent pine cone, isn't it? If you planted it would a tree grow?

Eric and Flynn said...

A pine cone? What are you supposed to do with that? They could have at least rolled it in nip first. We are glad they are back safely though. Just make them feel guilty for the lack of presents.

I think your purrents has a strange sense of humor and that's why the pinecone! Becuz they knew you were pining fur them.

Well, at least it's smelly (the pinecone that is) and you could purrobably bat it around a little too.

a pine cone? for all the duress of leaving you? wow. but i shouldn't be too critical. i'm leaving on a trip and it's doubtful the boyz will get anything even as good as a pine cone...

Angel said...

Sometimes they just don't think. But it could be that the only places to shop were either so expensive (airport shops) or did not have any kitty gifts! And some think the only gife we need is them!

Gandalf and Grayson said...

Maybe you need to peel it - there may be hidden treasures inside!

The Island Cats said...

We think that pine cone would be fun to knock around!

Glad the 'rents are home!!

Daisy said...

Well, a pine cone is a nice present. As long as it comes with lots of treats and toys. I hope your mom and dad had lots of fun!

Fin said...

That pine cone looks very whappable. It actually looks like a lot more fun than most of my toys. We're glad your 'rents are back, and hope they had a wonderful trip.

Derby said...

Welcome back! Maybe if they ground up some nip and put that with the pine cone.

Camie's Kitties said...

You have to admit that that is a big pinecone tho. We agree they should have brought something better back for you. We are glad they are home tho.

Hi Parker. We know what you mean about the very short back of disrespect...we miss our Meowmy so much, we run to the door when she comes home, even if she's only been off working. (the only time we don't run is if one of us is sound sound asleep...then she comes looking for us and snorgles us!) Um...pine cone...nice...yeah...um...maybe it smells like California squirrels have nibble on it? otherwise, sort of a lame souvenir...sorry.
