Everycat should try and get some of their international blogging buddies' humans to come and visit them, because you get GIFTS! Lots of them. Here's what Tracy and Denis brought me, as selected by Phoebe, Monica and Joey: Phoebe, Monica and Joey sent me some great feather-butt chickens (because they know that chickens are my favourite), an awesome laser pointer toy (which I'm not scared of AT ALL) and a very important survival guide to modern feline living (it's also a training manual on how to be a feline revolutionary).
It's full of very important learnings and will take me some time to digest.
They also sent along a card...
Don't worry, Monica, Tracy and Denis must be very smart, because they made it to tomorrow without any problems (although the Temptations they tried to bring into Australia weren't so lucky. Tracy says that they were confiscated by Australian customs, but I tend to think that they were sucked into a wormhole by the space-time continuum).
Thanks, Tracy and Denis, and thanks to Phoebe, Monica and Joey for choosing such fantastic gifts to send to me! And don't worry about the Temptations. I can imagine how delicious they would have been...
Unfortunately, I didn't get a whole lot of time to spend with Tracy and Denis while they stayed with us. I had some very important matters to attend to, which had nothing to do with being scared of having strangers from overseas staying in my house:
I left it up to Nick and Kate to show them the sights of Hobart, and introduce them to some of their friends at an Aussie barbecue. I think they had a good time. They're gone now. But I've got all those cool gifts to remember them by.
