Thoughts on Thursday

We had scheduled a Thankful Thursday for today but it just didn't seem like the appropriate title when we heard the news that one of our dearest friends, Tristan, had passed away.  We are very sad about her leaving and we want to send our purrs and thoughts to Angela and Crikey.  Tristan was a very special girl and a great friend.  We will miss her very much.

Now for the thankful part:

A couple of weeks ago, we were very lucky to win a giveaway on Marg's Animals blog by her friend, Pricilla the Goat, for some fabulous goat-milk soap.

We got to choose from a whole lot of different shapes and fragrances of goat milk soap from the Etsy store Happy Goats Soap!

Mommy, of course, chose the cat-shaped soap with the 'Monkey Farts' fragrance!  She also added to the prize by purchasing an extra bar.

This is the description of the fragrance and the soap from Happy Goats Soaps Etsy case you were wondering what a Monkey Fart smells like!

This bar is a nice blend of Pricilla and Abigail's milk with shea butter,cocoa butter olive oil,mango butter and apricot kernel oil to make a rich, delightful soap. It is fragranced with Monkey Farts. WHAT?! Well, imagine what a monkey might eat; bananas, pineapple, mango and then he well has some gas. But it's sweet gas. That's what this soap smells like. It's all good.

We haven't used the soap, but Mommy says it is really wonderful and she'll definitely purchase again.  The soap is very rich and smells fantastic.

If she really wants to smell a Monkey fart, I'd be happy to oblige her!

Thank you Pricilla for making such rich milk and thank you Marg for having the contest!

That soap sounds fun!

We are sorry another kitty went over the Rainbow Bridge. We will go over and offer our sympathies.

I think it's hilarious that your human, of all humans, would choose Monkey Farts scent!

In spite of the MOL, I do want to acknowledge and pay my respects to Tristan.

It is always so sad when a kitty from our community goes to the bridge!

Your soap looks great, we thought the Monkey Fart name was odd until you explained it :-)

We are so sorry for your friend. It's so sad.

The soap bar is so cute. I'm just wondering what a Monkey fart smell like? Maybe Samson has the answer!
