Only the handful of you who follow the head peep on Twitter probably know this, but it was a rough week here last week. Our house got hit by lightning on Monday, and we spent the whole week finding things that didn’t survive the strike. By Friday, the head peep was really glad it was the end of the week. She came trudging up to the front door in the rain, because that’s what afternoon weather does in Florida this time of year, and she was surprised to see a box from Chewy.com waiting under the eaves.
We had just gotten a shipment from them the middle of the week, and she thought hard to remember whether anything had been left out of the previous shipment. Meanwhile, she was getting wetter and wetter in the rain while she thought. This is why we are the cats and she’s the human. Cats wouldn’t stand in the rain thinking.
Newton: Get in here already! What are you waiting for?
She brought the box in and opened it to find a very nice note from Andrew and the team at Chewy thanking her for participating in the blogging program. What an unexpected surprise!
Pierre: While you’re reading that note, I’m just going to see what’s in here, okay? Read as slowly as you want so you don’t notice if I steal the good stuff.
Newton: Check out the packing material! This is awesome! If I run through the house with some of this, it’s going to decorate everything!
Ashton: Is this all for ME?
Newton: No, Ash, we all get to share.
Newton: Hey, this is taking the sharing thing a little far! I don’t think those are going to fit me.
A big thank you to team Chewy for the surprise package. We can’t wait to dig into the treats and share them with our cousins, too. You had no idea what a bad week the head peep was having, but extra thanks for making her smile when she really needed it.
(But could you ask her to stop trying to make us wear the sunglasses, please?)
