It's a Flying Pig. Literally.



I know, I know, I know.

Yesterday I said I was going to curb my cat lady ways for a while. And you guys, I totally meant it too!

But then, yesterday, I came home and found that my cat was recipient to what might possibly be the coolest package ever.

It's a pig. And it came priority mail so that means this pig flew.

No brown box or nothing. It came addressed to "Miss Lola" and everything.

And if that was not impressive enough, you know who the pig is from?

A hog.


To be more precise, a 6 year old Vietnamese Pot-Bellied Pig named Stella Dora Von Swineburg. She has her own blog which you should totally check it out. She is an Artist's Muse, Fund Raiser and Super Model. So impressive.

As if a pig sending a valentine to a cat wasn't cool enough, let's see what was in it, shall we?

Took a while to get this thing going.



It went on for a while. By the time we got the boa out Lola was picking feathers from her teeth.

Then she heard a rattle.

Then there was a mechanical sound.

Then something wiggled.

Uh oh.



For the record, the caterpillar put up a good fight. Not every wind-up toy can withstand the clash of a mighty titan like Lola.


When the battle was won, Lola and I opened a beautiful box of chocolate that also survived the US Postal surface. We decided to call it Survival Chocolate just so it would taste extra good. And it did :)







Happy Valentines, Stella!!!

  4. What a great present. I'm amazed that those packages made it. Lola seems quite pleased with her gift. I assume that it is safely under a piece of furniture now, or under the fridge. That is where my cats store their things.

  5. Too fun...and Lola is absolutely adorable! When I was a teen, my mom had two friends survive breast cancer, each with a double mastectomy, and given their amazing love of life, found humor in not needing their bras anymore. So, every so often, one would arrive from one friend to another via USPS, in clear baggies, addressed to the Bras for Bangladesh Fund. I can't even imagine what the postal workers thought was happening!

    I stumbled onto your blog and love it. Keep up the good work!

  6. I read your blog out loud to my husband and we both just laughed!!! It was great. I ADORE Lola and he said she is beautiful (of course, I knew that...) I'm glad she enjoyed her Valentine gift. I wondered what to give my kitty, and just gave her some chicken... But like your treat better. I'll go look for some toys. Thanks for the smiles this morning!!!

  7. Okay, that is probably, definitely the most AWESOME valentines day present EVER...and the fact that it actually made it thru the post sans package is just too too funny to believe!
