A Visitor

A while ago we had the strangest adventure ever and today we want to tell you about it.
We were outside, greeting the new day, when all of a sudden something appeared in the sky.


Unfortunately the landing didn't go smoothly and the thing got tangled up in our cactus.

We ran over to see what it was - and by then the parachutist had freed himself.

He introduced himself and said that he was with the 13th airborne brigade of rabbit reconnaissance checking for new salad fields. And from the air he mistook our nip for salad, hahahahahahahahahahahaha. His name is Ronaldo.
Mrs. OZ offered a cup of hot tea...


...but Ronaldo declined and said he will just call his brigade to pick him up and asked if he could wait inside for them. So I invited him in to my day hangout on the butler's work table, where he tried some nip (and decided to stick with salad) ...

... and we talked a bit about traveling -

- and while we waited for his brigade to pick him up we exchanged email addresses so we can keep in contact.

It just shows to tell you - you never know what might fall out of the sky, sometimes it might be a new friend!

Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends, old and new, past and future, close and afar.
Thank you for your friendship and the joy you bring into our lives!

Happy Thanksgiving to you my dear friends at The Cat Realm!
You all have the most interesting things happening at your place and meet the nicest of furries out there. I hope I get to know Rolando better maybe next time he drops in let's get together.
So glad you could make it over today, food was pretty good huh? Don't tell the butler and maid about the meat though.
Love,
Sas

Wow! We didn't know there was a 13th airborne brigade of rabbit reconnaissance! What a surprise that must have been!

Hope you all have a Hoppy Thanksgiving! And we hope Ronaldo finds his salad fields (and tells us where they are =:-)

How nice to have Ronaldo drop in. He looks like a friendly bun. We hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving with lots of fun and turkey. Thanks for visiting to see the kittens, it was hard to take them back but we know they will be safe and get good homes. Mum visited them today and they were settled and happy!

AWWW! A new friend from the sky! How cool! Although it's a good thing he liked salad more than your catnip or there could be problems. BTW, please remind your beans that my book, The World is Your Litter Box, makes a great holiday gift. It’s only 9.95 green papers and is available at Barnes & Noble and Amazon.com

Two Sisters said...

Wow surprise visitors are fun. We don't get bunnies dropping in too often!

Happy Belated Thanksgiving, hope it was a great one!
