Forsooth, no need to wonder, for I shall tell you.
It's a package from the UK! From Gretel, in fact. I particularly love the mouse and the "yipe"-lines coming off his head.
Inside we found a number of lovely things, including some RFE cards, a rabbit cookie-cutter for Miss V, and the star of our show:
Eloise, Eloise, the pink-point Siamese! Who proceeded to sit on one of my cookbooks, very much the way my cat Chamomile used to do (with a look on her face that clearly said, "What can possibly be in this book that beats the pleasure of petting me?").
Miss V was quite taken with Eloise and immediately began squeeing joyously over her.
She doesn't usually look this lunatic, but that's only because she's exceptionally delighted.
I think it's love.
