Blest Sunday

Meowllo evewypawdy and a blest Sunday to ya’. Mommy, Lexi and me got an invitation of sorts in da email da udder day, but well as wiff most stuff tech, mommy didn’t quite unnewstand it and then we furgot and missed it. What wuz it you ask? Well  it wuz a discussion/lesson by a panel of pawsum Cat writers/bloggers. At least nex time weez’ll unnewstand da invite and be able to set a’minder fur it. Cuz we watched it after da fact, and it wuz pawsum!!! Altho’ me knows da panel of ladies rarely weads meez bloggy, me wuld like to fank them fur their time and infurmation. Ifin yous a blogger of any kind yous oughtta check it out here. Altho’ da panel wuz made up of Cat Bloggers, da infurmation given wuz good fur all bloggers.  

 dw DnL blessed - 2HEoW-1ek - normal

They talked ‘bout bwandin’ and integwity. You know weez been vewy blest. When we stawted in social media we made it clear dat we wuld always tell da twuff no matter what. Dat meant even when it didn’t put a good light on us or even ifin it hurt us, we wuz gunna tell it like it is. And most of ow furiends/followers tell us dat they like and wespect dat ‘bout us, and they believ us when we say sumfin’. Dat makes us very purroud and honored, but it also means we be held to a higher standawd. We hav to work hawder ifin weez postin’ sumfin’ educational specially, cuz you ow furiends awe welyin’ on us to giv you da facts, not just ow opinion. You awe twustin’ us to not mislead you or giv you bad infurmation. Dat be da integwity pawt.

 dw Dezi watchin tv

Course integwity also means stayin’ twu to hoo we awe. Dat be purretty easy fur us cuz mommy hates lyin’ and fakeness. We hope to continue to be kitties you can twust and weez plan on workin’ hawd to purrove yous twust is not misgivin’. Of course we will continue hav fun and make those kinds of posties. But we also hope to bwing you more educational/infurmative posties as well. Me guesses ifin we wuz da kind dat made New Years wesolutions this wulda been ows. We don’t make wesolutions cuz more offen than not they get bwoken wiffin da furst kupple weeks, but we fink we can all stwive to be better. As long as you member to be twuff-ful in all you do and say and never furget dat weez all capable of learnin’ sumfin new (cuz nopawdy knows it all) then you be well on yous way to bein’ better.

 

They also talked ‘bout bwandin’. And how ow blog wuz ow bwand, and it’s what defines us. Da fings we post shuld match up wiff hoo we awe and what ow goals awe fur ow bloggy. One of da fings we be known fur is ow Blest Sunday posties and findin’ da good in fings and bein’ a pawsitiv furce. We weally like bein’ known fur dat, cuz there’s enuff bad and negativ fings in da world wiffout addin’ to it. We hope you continue to bear wiff us as we work towards makin’ ow blog one dat be innewestin’, worff da visit and full of integwity and most purrtant luv.

 dw Dezi watching birdsm

Wiffout you all visitin’ weadin’ and commentin’ this wuld just be a diawy. So we hope hope dat you will always be honest wiff us. And ifin you ever hav questions ‘bout us or sumfin’ weez written purrlease feel furee to ask. When we do ow educational posties we do a lot of wesearch afur sayin’ sumfin’ definitive, and we twy to always giv you a link to ow wesources, but we did learn dat purrhaps we shuld be notin’ those wesources at da end of ow posties also. So we awe gunna be better ‘bout dat in da future. Mommy sez dat we be a blest genewation cuz there’s so much infurmation available these days and it’s much easier to access it. We also learned we weally need a mentor. Hopefully weez’ll be goin’ to BlogPaws and we can find one there. Course mommy sez we can find one anywhere, and there be lots of peeps we weally admire and fink wuld be gweat mentors. But we also know it takes a lot of time and we don’t wanna impose on anyone. We know most of ya’ lead very busy lives, so ifin we evew get da courage to ask ya’ purrlease feel furee to say No. We won’t be offended or get ow feelins hurt.

We purreciate each and evewyone of you. Fur us yous not just followers or weaders; you be ow furiends and furamily. We also be weally blest to hav a ticket to da BlogPaws conference in Nashville. We so hope and purray dat we be able to find a way to go and to affurd lodgin’ fur those 3 days. Da swag and goodies wuld be pawsum.

So yesfurday just like any udder day we clicked on da Notification baw on meez bloggy. We clicked da link of da commenter  and didn’t pay tention cuz we went back to weply to da comment left fur me. Mommy wead da comment to me and Lexi and then typed out ow weply and clicked “Send.”  And what happened then? Da circle of doom went wound and wound and wound and never stopped.

 dw Dezi Beautiful thursday - 2HEoW-1eg - normal

Mommy closed da window and twied weopenin’ it by typin’ in da link herselff, and then went back to ow weply. Still da circle of doom goes wound and wound.

Lexi’s Show and Tell Birth

Meowllo evewypawdy hope yous havin’ a good week so faw. Today be Bacon’s show and tell day. And Easy suggested da topic fur show and tell be all bout bein’ born. Da day of ow birff. Altho we hav told these stories afur, we didn’t hav very many furiends then so weez fawt it wuld be a good idea to tell it all again. Now me can tell sis Lexi’s stowry just like me wuz there cuz meez heard it so many times. So dat’s where weez gunna stawt. Let me set da scene fur ya’.

Mommy sez me looks good in oil paints.

Mommy sez me looks good in oil paints.

Picture it, April 1999, a very bootyful spwing day in Oklahoma. Da sun wuz shinin’, it wuz still a little cool in da meownins and there wuz still dew on da flowers and tips of da gwass. There wuz a house in da good pawt of town where there lived sevewal Egyptian Mau kitties bein’ bwed to make show kitties and pets fur peeps lookin’ fur dat kind of kitty. One such Queen wuz nearly weady to giv birff. Her peeps all got weady to go out fur da day and had been outside havin’ there meownin’ coffee. Next door lived a stay at home mom what had a big ole doggy livin’ out in hers back yawd. A foo hours after da Mau’s furmily left fur da day dat very purregnant Queen wandered into da kitchen and found da back door left ajar. She had never been on da udder side of da door, but she kuld smell da fwesh air and hear da birdies chirpin’ and callin’ to her. She sensed it might not be safe, but just kuldn’t wesist da “call of da wild.” Out fwu da cwack in da door she went. Da still dewey gwass felt stwange on hers paws and all da new smells tickled her nose. Sounds wuz comin’ fwum evewywhere and hers ears wuz dawtin’ side to side and fwunt o back. Da sun wus bwight and warm on hers black spotted and stwiped coat.

She laid down on da moist gwass and stawted cleanin’ hers paws. Just then she saw a squirrel dat had descended fwum da twee in hers yawd. He had always played happily in this yawd cuz there wuz no animals or bawkin’ doggies here. He hadn’t seen da little Mau Queen layin’ in da gwass gwoomin’. But she saw him. And instinct took over and she cwouched and wan toward da little squirrel hoo chattered and wan up da twee. Just then da little Queen heard lots of loud bawkin noises dat scared her and suddenly she kuldn’t member what to do or where to go so she headed fur da fence and up she climbed like she did on da cat twee in da house. Once at da top of da wooden picket fence she jumped down…in da neighbors yawd. Maybe she fawt she wuz back in her yawd, maybe she wuz still confused. We will never know. But after lookin’ wound a moment she laid back down in da dewey gwass. Dat wuz a lot of ‘citement fur a little Queen almost weady to giv birff.   

But she wasn’t in her yawd and she wusn’t safe. Da big doggy dat lived in this yawd saw her come over da fence and headed back wound to hims backyawd fwum da side of da house. When he got to da backyawd he wan full speed toward da little Queen. She looked up. She had never seen a doggy afur, so she didn’t know what to do. It all happened so fast. Afur she kuld move da doggy had her in hims mouff. Hims wuz gwowlin’ and shakin’ her evewy which way. She scweamed at furst and da lady of da house came wunnin’ outside to see what da commotion wuz. And as she opened da door she saw sumfin’ very tiny bein’ flung into da fence and fallin’ to da gwound. She saw dat 2 more times as she wushed to get da water hose and spway hers doggy hopin’ hims wuld welease whatever hims had in hims mouff. Da doggy took off wound to da side of da house again, and da woman went over to da fence to see what had dwopped.

I'z wuz awlwayz a liddull dibbrunt and on minez own.

I’z wuz awlwayz a liddull dibbrunt and on minez own.

There she found 3 of da tiniest little kittens she had ever seen. Knowin’ it wuz too late to save da little Queen she scooped up da kittens and took them in da house. She gwabbed a little shoebox and put da kittens in it stacked on top of one anudder. She didn’t know ifin they wuz alive or dead, but she knew she had to get them help. She gwabbed hers keys da shoebox of kitties and hers cell fone and wan out da door. She knew there wuz a wescue gwoup wiff a bottle feedin’ specialist at da Pet store dat day so she wushed to da store. By da time she weached da store, 10 minutes later; one of da kittens wuz scweamin’ weally loud. She wuz gwateful fur dat and hoped it meant they wuz okay. Into da store she wan where meez mommy heard da baby cwyin’ and wan over to meet da lady. Mommy took da tiny shoebox full of kitties and cleaned them off and put them in a bigger box and gave them a bottle afur heawin’ their hawwowin’ tale.

Da bweeder lady never contacted mommy and mommy waised those little kittys to be stwong and luvvin’. She did lose one of da kitties at 2 1/2 weeks to neurological purrawlems. She wefused to eat and so mommy had to send her to heaven. But sis Lexi and hers bwofur littermate gwu stwong and mommy found da pawsumest home fur little Cade hoo also gwu into a lawge kitty like Lexi and me. And of course Lexi stayed wiff mommy as you wead wecently in mommy’s luv letter to her. Mommy hopes Lexi  dusn’t member anyfin’ ‘bout those furst ten minutes of hers life and has dun evewyfin’ she can to show Lexi dat she be purrfect and dat she luvs her very much. And yous know what? Lexi knows it and she luvs mommy more than anyfin’ in da universe.   

Mommy sez I'z look grayt in oylz too.

Mommy sez I’z look grayt in oylz too.

Well dat be ow show and tell fur da day. Ifin yous wanna wead more birff stowries head on over to Bacon’s wight now. And till da nex time…………………….Be Blest!!!
