When last we left you, gentle reader, Allie has just caught the boys with the opened Secret Paws box....
Allie: What do you two think you're doing with our gift?!?
Faraday: *jabs paw at Maxie* It was all his idea. I told him you wouldn't approve but he wouldn't listen to me! *backs rapidly away*
Allie: Oh reeeeeally.
Maxwell: Why you little brat--
Allie: *banshee wail* I'll teach you to hoard the presents!!! *WHAP!*
We'll spare you the gory details, but after a brief interlude, order was once again restored.
Then it was on to the gifting!
Kitties! Do you see all the Wand Toy magnificence here?!?
Our mom wasn't left out either. She was given such nice gifts by mom Paula!
Thank you so very much!
To the surprise of all (said no one, ever) Allie claimed the pink wand toy as hers. ALL hers.
Faraday decided it was safer, after the (ahem) altercation to stick to Bonito flakes for the moment. He adores them. Maxwell decided if Faraday shared a bonito flake or two, that might just go a long way toward forgiveness.
But of course, all good things must come to an end. Oh no, not the gifts, dear reader. We're talking about things like Peace & Harmony.
There was some heated discussion, you see, over the wee brown mousie on a stick...
Maxwell:Dood, toss it here and I'll forget that earlier incident completely. Word.
Faraday: What say you, mousie? Nah, didn't think so, either.
Maxwell: *sigh* oh well. Ooh look, Allie's pink--
Allie: Don't even think it, Maxie.
