I’ve come a long way from that day 16 years ago when I was dumped off on mommy in a shoe box. I’ve had and will continue to have the bestest life a kitty kuld ever ask fur. I have a mommy who luvs me more than life itself and I’ve had 3 pawsome brofurs and now the most wonderful sisfur. And now I’m celebratin’ my second internet birthday with all of you, our amazing furiends and furamily. Furst I wanna say a meowsy big Fank You fur bein’ a part of our lives.

Come on in and have a ball. There’s something fur everyone. And we thought while we were celebratin’ we would invite meez sweet Andy to join in. His birthday’s tomorrow. So fank you all fur comin’ by and enjoy the party.
Mommy: My sweet beautiful girls, I’m the one counting her blessings today. Lexi you have indeed come a long way from the day you were born. You have been a rock for me to lean on and a fluffy pillow to rest on all these years. Even now you show no signs of slowing down. I’ve always imagined us being together forever. I have never imagined a day that you weren’t here with me. And my promise to you has always been and will always be to give you the best life possible. The day you chose me to be your mommy was one of the happiest days of my life. As we celebrate the day of your birth I commit to make the rest of your life better than it has been thus far. Here’s to another 16 years and then some.
Lexi: Aaaaaw Fanks mommy and sissy. Now let’s get this party started. And look at the pawsome card our furiends Timmy and his furamily sent me. Fank you all fur everything.

And hey, that’s on top of the 1/4 of baby food I get with my new medicines.

Mommy sez we have some new followers from da other side of the world and they need to translate our posties to read them. So we willl be adding more human spellings to our posts to assist their ‘puters in translatin’ things. altho’ we have no intent of losing our identities. So purrlease bear with us as we try and figure this all out.
Meowllo everypawdy sure hope yous getting’ more sun puddles than us. Weez turnin’ into fish here. Weez gunna furget how to use da ‘puter ifin weez not able to get on it soon. Altho’ mommy did purromise Lexi dat even ifin it’s stormin’ we wuld celebrate hers Meowday/birffday tomorrow. After all it’s not everyday dat she’s gunna turn sweet sixteen. So just in case you need a reminder, yous all invited to da pawrty tomorrow. And speakin’ of Lexi, she’s duin’ okay. She ate real good yesfurday and weez hopin’ fur lots more days of dat kind of eatin’. She’s also been actin’ a bit feisty da last kupple of days since she stawted takin’ hers vitamin B-12.
We did read a most horrible story in da news ‘bout a Texas VET. Seems a young female Vet posted ‘bout hers purroud moment when she killed a “feral” neighborhood cat with an arrow to the head. Turns out said “feral kitty” wasn’t feral at all and in fact belonged to a neighbor. No, we won’t be postin’ da foto. We awe outraged ‘bout this. Yes, we be frum da Souff and we believe in da right to bear arms. We believe in da right to defend ourselves and to kill to eat, but we be fightin’ a town full of ignorant people dat fink a bullet is still da answer to animal over pawpulation and here’s a VET dat’s posed to luv animals and has gone to school to learn how to make their lives better and she’s killing without regard. Cuz feral or not, dat kitty didn’t deserve to die. Specially not dat way. We find it even more upsetting dat da clinic where she worked didn’t fire her till after da public outcwy fur justice. It’s not like this was sumfin’ she was hidin’. She posted her elation along wiff da foto on hers Facebook page. What is wrong wiff peeps?!!! This is just anudder reason we believe the penalties fur animal cruelty need to be stiffer.
We awe so gwateful to belong to such a wunnewful community wiff peeps hoo luv their animals and fight fur animals every chance they have. We purray fur da furmily of dat poor kitty and all da stray and feral fur babies out there fwu no choice of their own. We beg you all once again, to purrlease keep your cats inside. You never truly know hoo is out there or what their agenda might be. On dat note hold them a little tighter and tell them you luv them once more than usual. See you tomorrow fur sis Lexi’s pawrty.
Till da next time……………………………………….Be Blest!!!

Meowllo evewypawdy and fanks fur stoppin’ by today. We hope yous had a gweat weekend. OMC Wait’ll ya’ hear da news we have. We got mowe funnewstorms and wain as spected, but fank catness there wuz no hail. Dat wuld be ow furst blessin’ this week. Cuz at this point weez feelin’ a little waterlogged. MOL And it went and got cold again but at least we didn’t have snow. Ow poor furiend Foxy had snow da uddew day. Anyways, ‘nuff ‘bout da wedder wight? As always weez count ourselves among da blest cuz we have each udder. And we have all of you. We gotta tell ya’ this ole world can be hawsh. But it’s so much easier to bear when yous have furiends and furamily yous can lean on.
There’s been a lot of loss wound da blogosphre this mumff and lots of sick kitties, doggies, hoomans and mowe. So purrlease don’t furget to purray fur yous furiends. We fink purrayers be good whedder yous be sick or not, dat’s why weez purray fur all of ya’ evewyday.
Now as you all know we got a ticket to Blogpaws a while back. Wuz we sum kinda ‘cited or what? Ifin me has to answer dat yous be new. Welkum to Deziz World, and da answer is YES!!! Course mommy hadn’t weally taken into considewation any costs. So she stawted lookin’ at motels and we wuld have to went a caw cuz she dusn’t twust ow caw to go dat faw. Anyways, then mommy panicked. Not weally but it sounded good. Actually mommy did what any good mommy wuld do and stawted contactin’ companies to see ifin we kuld get a sponsor. She fawt ‘bout havin’ an auction, and then posted and asked ifin anypawdy wuz dwivin’ dat we kuld ride wiff. To which we got a email wiff a maybe. Yeah mommy saw da maybe but didn’t let dat deter her. She wuz believin’ fur a yes to follow. Weeks seemed like years waitin’ fur da yes, and still we had no idea how we wuld pay fur da hotel. By now mommy had signed up to do weviews fur pay so long as she appwoved of da purroduct and we kuld be honest. You know we won’t lie to ya’ just fur a foo gween papews. Turns out there wuz no weviews fur money to be had.
By this time mommy wuz finally stawtin’ to see weality and fink we might not get to go after all. And then last week mommy opened ow email and there it wuz…we had a ride to BlogPaws. OMC Mommy cwied as usual and then weality sunk in. There wuz only a mumff left and there wuz still no way we kuld afford a room. Any extwa munny mommy can find goes towards sis Lexi’s tweatments and ow cawe. And mommy findin’ extwa munny dusn’t happen. But we have been twuly blest to have sum of you help wiff doctows poinments and tweatments and noms and litter. We awe so vewy gwateful to you fur dat. So mommy made a last ditch effowt and made a posty askin’ fur a room mate. It’s not like we knew where da munny wuz gunna come fwum fur half da room, but it seemed easier to fink ‘bout than da whole amount. But still no weplies. Well it stawted stowmin’ again so mommy shut down da puter and we all sat wound just watchin’ sum teevee. Yep yous wead dat wight, me didn’t wun off.
Mommy wuz pettin’ us and we wuz purrin’ and hers sed, “We got a ticket and a ride and it just seems like it was meant to be. How could I be so wrong?” And mommy hugged us boff and told us she luvved us. Da stowm let up a bit and mommy wuz wunnewin’ ‘bout da dose of Vit. B-12 she wuz givin’ Lexi so we went to da suppowt gwoup and we found a post ‘bout a purrcedure we wusn’t sure ifin Brians furmily had heard ‘bout. You know Brian’s been weally fightin’ a battle wiff these UTI’s. And as you know mommy lost Lucky and Ransom to this pawful disease so we feel kinda close to Brian. We worry ‘bout all ow furiends and twy to help when we can. So we sent an email wiff da infurmation we found.
A foo emails later and Mr. Terry sed dat…Brian’s Home wuld like to sponsor us and pay fur ow room at BlogPaws. OMC Yous guessed it, da flood gates opened and mommy stawted bawlin’. Yep it wusn’t cwyin’ da happy tears it wuz outwight bawlin’. Oh they wuz happy tears alwight, but we didn’t fink they wuz evew gunna stop. So look out Nashville, cuz here weez come!!! Yep dat’s wight, weez goin’ to BlogPaws!!! And yes sirree weez awe sum kinda ‘cited. Weez can’t say fank you enuff to Brian and hims furmily. This be like da chance of a lifetime. Afur mommys accident she always worked. And she nevew took vacations, cuz most of da tme she had mowe than 1 job. So this be like a vacation, meowsy big birffday purresent all wolled into one. Yep mommys meowday is da day afur all da fun stawts. We can’t wait. Fank you again, weez awe so honored and blest to be sponsored by y’all.
So weez say again, we awe so twuly blest. We have da most amazin’ furiends and fwamily. Weez wuld also like to fank awnty Melissa and Obi fur sendin’ sum gween papews to help buy sis Lexi’s Azodyl. Don’t furget to purray fur sissy and Brian and all da uddews in need wight now. Brian wuz feelin’ a bit better last night and we want dat to continue. And take a minute to member all da blessings in yous life.
Till da next time……………………………..Be Blest!!!

Meowllo evewypawdy, hope yous had a gweat week. Weez so happy it’s da weekend. We wuz gunna write this posty yesfurday fur T day in da Bloggin’ A to Z challenge, but as soon as da bootyful sun went down Wednesday evenin’ da sky opened up and buckets, no oceans fell. And da wumblin’ wuz shakin’ da whole house. Of course we kuld see how black it wuz cuz lightnin’ kep lightin’ up da sky. Now they be tellin’ us weez in fur hail. Welkum spwing in da souff of tornado alley. It kinda turned cold too. Altho’ not so cold we wusn’t wunnin’ da fans. Anyways, nuff ‘bout da wedder, weez wanna talk today ‘bout a blessin’ or ten. Now me knows yous wunnewin’ just what duz a blessin’ have to do wiff ow title wight? Well it all stawted last year wiff us followin’ a Tomcat.
Fur those of ya’ hoo have alweady heard da stowry of how we came to be bloggers, you might wanna skip to da nex pawagwaff. Fur evewypawdy else…pull up a chair and pour anudder cup of coffee/tea/or whatevew yous dwink. When we got ow puter mommy knew basically nuffin’. So she took a old purrsons class (needed it to go slow) on usin’ social media. She had to cweate a Facebook account as pawt of da class. Well mommy wuz weally leary ‘bout plastewin’ hers name and face all over da net cuz in hers day fings like dat be dangewous. (they still awe by da way) So stead of puttin’ hers name and face on it, she put ours out there. Aftew all what kinda perv wuld stalk a cat? MOL And it wusn’t long afur hers stawted findin’ all kinds of cat lovers. And we joined a gwoup of those cat lovers and met lots of kitties includin’ one named Timmy Tomcat. Shortly afur dat site closed Timmy posted a query askin’ ifin anypawdy wuld like to be guest writers on hims bwofur Buddy’s bloggy. Sissy had a purretty good Facebook page goin’ so mommy sed me kuld do this. So Timmy and hims daddy unkle Pete told us we needed to cweate an account. Well they just didn’t know how illiterate mommy is wiff puters; and afur she knew it we had ow own bloggy. We wusn’t guestin’ anyfin’. And so it began, Deziz World wuz made weal.
In those furst foo mumffs, Timmy wuz da only one we knew. We stawted followin’ udder blogs, but back then only a foo peeps evew came to visit us. It’s purrawlly a good fing cuz we had no idea what we wuz duin’. MOL Anyways, we followed Timmy wight into Cat Scouts too. We saw it on hims sidebaw and he sure looked like he wuz havin’ a good time. And we followed him to da Tabby Cat Club. And ya’ know what? Weez glad we did. We have been so blest to get to know so many wunnewful animals and their peeps. This be an adventure and evewyday we look furward to da next one. As most of you know Lexi wuz wecently diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease, and wequires ongoing tweatments. She also quit eatin’ and lost a lot of weight. And as you also know weez not have much munny so buyin’ sissy’s medicines and payin’ VET bills be sumfin’ weez not be ale to do vewy well. And then wiff hers not eatin’ weez had to buy lots of diffewent noms to find sumfin’ hers wuld eat.
Well da udder day unkle Pete and Timmy and furmily sent Lexi da cutest little get well cawd and a gift cawd to amazon. So mommy purromptly went on ovew and placed an order. She got a mumffs worff of da Renavast and B-12. She also got sum slippewy elm fur sissies upset tummies and sum noms. It’s been wecommended dat she get sum dwy noms to help her gain sum weight back. And since we luvved those Canidae tweats so well mommy got a bag of da food. Looks like da same fing to us. And cuz sissy likes da Friskies baconated noms and da baby food ham so well mommy bought sum Precise Holistic Flaked Pork cans.
And OMC sissy has licked da plate clean evewy meal since they got here. Mommy has cwied and scweamed and shouted and danced and jumped up and down ovew da empty plates evewy time. Dusn’t take much to make a mommy happy let me tell ya’. Fing is evewyday wiff this disease counts and evewy day dat sissy dusn’t get hers meds or eat is a day dat she kuld get worse. So weez weally purreciate y’all sendin’ us dat gift cawd so we kuld get sissy goin’. We knew she needed these fings da day after we got da wesults fwum hers blood test, we just didn’t have da gween papers fur them, so a meowsy big FANK YOU unkle Pete, Timmy, Miss Fitz, Buddy, Rumpy, Einstein, Toby and Buttons. Y’all awe da bestest.
Weez also joinin’ up wiff Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Pawade Blog Hop as it be Furiday. So ifin by sum chance yous not know ow sweet furiend Timmy or Rascal and Rocco, then purrlease paw their names in red and go by and say hi. And ifin yous do know ‘em, go by and say hi anyways. Oh and don’t furget to come by fur ow Blest Sunday posty cuz we got sum weally ‘citin’ news too shawe. Maybe mommy can quit cwyin’ by then. (happy tears, they be happy tears) And don’t furget sis Lexi’s Meowday/birffday celebwation next Wednesday da 29ff. She’s gunna be sweet sixteen.
Till da next time…………………………………..Be Blest!!!
