The Stork Delivers!

What a pleasant surprise!

Mama picked up her mails that came while she was away. And, among others, is a large envelope from Purina. Inside - a box of Royale Fancy Feast. Nine cans in total plus a magnetic frame that Mama says she'll stick on the fridge door. Thank you Justine! (she's the generous lady from Purina who sent the package)

What triggered this gift? A few months ago Mama complained to Purina that she couldn't find stock of this particular brand at either Coles or Woolies. It was the pouches that she was looking for. Not for me though. For Tom and his family. They simply love this gourmet cat food. Usually Mama or Dad would carry a suitcase full of the stuff for Tom. It's not as if they're not sold in shops back in the old country. It's just that they would cost a bomb. Even though the Aussie dollar is stronger, it's still cheaper to buy them here.

Brad and I only get a taste when there are extra boxes that wouldn't fit into the overweight bags. Oh well, something's better than nothing. As for this particular box, for sure we'll get a taste coz Mama has just returned from visiting Tom and family. Can't wait for breakfast time....

"Mama, may I have one for supper?" I pleaded.

"No, Angelina," came Mama's stern answer. "You and Brad were overfed when you were staying with Aunty If. Now back to normal routine, OK?"

Well, at least she doesn't insist that we fast during daytime like her. Thank God for small mercies, eh? Meow!

What's in the box? 3X virgin flaked tuna, 3X tuna whitemeat supreme and 3X tuna banquet with whole prawns.

I think if your mama had forced you to fast, you would sleep all day, dreaming of nothing but food!

Lucky Tom! We can get Fancy Feast everywhere in Malaysia. My Rowdies seem to prefer it to Addiction, which is purportedly more high-end. The Whisketeers eat everything, so no worries there.

The frame is cute. Your photo should be in it since you are such a gorgeous little stunner!

Aunty Pi,
If I were to fast, I'll be drooling all over the place. That would be so yucky that my Mama would regret forcing me.

CO78,
My Mama did a survey in Malaysia. Of course you can get it everywhere but at RM3.90 for an 80g can, that's daylight robbery! She buys them by the hundreds in one purchase so imagine what it would cost.
Mama has bought some coated paper so we'll see some photoshop action soon. Wonder whose mugshot she'll put up. Mine, I hope. purrr purrr purrr....

Hi Cat, ha ha, love your humour.
I can see you really love cats.
Wish I can keep one too, a nice fluffy Persian. Lee.

"What's in the box? 3X virgin flaked tuna, 3X tuna whitemeat supreme and 3X tuna banquet with whole prawns"....mmmm...sounds delicious even as cat food!

Bruce kata...Nak sikit, boleh tak?

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Oh Uncle Lee,
Doesn't have to be Persian, even a little stray kitten by the road side is fluffy enough. That kitten needs your love and attention more than the overpriced fluffy flat-nosed sold at pet shops. However, if you're into fluffy ones but don't want too much fuss, get a Ragdoll. The blue eyes will make your heart melt.

Aunty Anne,
Send Bruce to us. We'll take care of him....hmmm...come here kitty kitty....

anneaziz said...

Dear Cat.

Bruce tak nak...dia nak tinggal kat Malaysia dgn mama dia...bukan senang nak dapat mama macam ni...dia cayang tau!

Lagi pun dia suka ikan kembung! Lagi gemuk lagi sedap!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Bruce? Ikan kembung = bloated fish. Not = sedap! meow!

Somuffins,
