Well as purromised weez gunna be tellin’ a Service cat twainin’ posty today. Furst tho’ me wuld like to ask fur yous continued purrayers fur sissy. It’s been an up and down kinda weekend. Okay on wiff da stowry.
You know twainin’ dusn’t happen overnight and there’s lots of oopsies along da way. So weez not mind dat yous laff and find our stowries funny. Most of da time even we fawt they was funny at da time and fur sure now. So dat bein’ sed, meez last posty had me dwivin’ mommy and me into da dwesser stead of da pawdee box room. It’s weally purrtant dat me learns to dwive to da pawdee box room cuz mommy needs da wheelchair most in da meownins when she wakes up and can’t move. Ifin yous just joinin’ us me wuld like to splain to and wemind ya’ why it is mommy can’t move in da meownin’. See hers pain medicine wears off duwin’ da night and she sleeps half layin’ and half sittin’ and dusn’t move. Mommy has a little of da westless leg cwamps but she dusn’t turn or roll over in da night. She wakes up in da same place and pawsition as she went to sleep in. So when da meds wear off hers joints and muscles stawrt “fureezin’” up wesultin’ in hers not bein’ able to move. Any of ya’ dat have any sperience wiff awfur-itis will kinda unnewstand this. Mommy basically has severe awfur-itis in hers whole body.
So, after meez oopsy sis Lexi took over and got mommy to da pawdee box room and then to da kitchen to fix our bwekky. After bwekky we had a little cat nap and played sum. When tweat tiime came mommy called me and sis Lexi back to da bedroom where she sat waitin’ in da movin’ chair (wheelchair). At furst me didn’t fink anyfin’ ‘bout it cuz sumtimes mommy sits in da movin’ chair duwin’ da day. Like when she needs to take out da twash or check da mail or even when she has to take care of Buddy fur Mr. W. So me jumped up in hers lap and sissy jumped on da bed and we waited fur our tweats. Mommy seemed a little stingy wiff da tweats but twuff is we get purrlenty. So when mommy put da bag in da little pocket on da awrm of da chair me stawrted to get down. But mommy had udder plans.
Mommy gently stopped me fwum runnin’ off and stawrted tellin’ me to turn on da chair. She pawsitioned me by da power awrm and lifted meez paw up towards da joystick. Me turned and looked at sissy still layin’ on da bed and havin’ a little baff, and then looked back at da joystick. Me pawed at da buttons on da movin’ chair and it finally beeped. It beeped a lot of times actually but mommy kuld see da wainbow of lights fwu meez neck ruff so she told me to bite da joystick. Mommy kuldn’t see da second wainbow of lights but she had turned da chair down to da slow settin’ afur callin’ me and Lexi to her so she was sure we was gunna be takin’ it slow and easy. She gave meez head a gentle push to da joystick and me bit down on it. Mommys hand rested softly on meez back wight behind meez head. Me pushed da joystick and we inched furward and stopped. We was on da cawrpet and da slow mo was just too slow. MOL So mommy weached ‘wound me and pushed da speed button one time. It wuld still be slow, but hopefully this wuld get us goin’.
Mommy gently pushed meez head and me bit da joystick again and pushed. We jolted a little and inched furward again. Da jolt caused me to put meez paws up on da power panel and me accidently turned da chair off so we came to a joltin’ stop again. Mommy told me to turn da movin’ chair on again, and me pawed at da buttons. Now ifin yous ever had a good look at meez paws yous will notice they be HUGE and me has lots of tufts of fur on ‘em. Even when me was a little kit meez paws was quite lawrge and those buttons be weally small and weally close togevver. So yous guessed it, meez turned on da movin’ chair but me also turned up da speed. And when me pushed da joystick furward we shot off like gweased lightnin’ toward da pawdee box room. Sumhow da fwunt wheels had turned a little and we stawrted turnin’ and headin’ fur da big chest of drawers sittin wight next to da pawdee box room. Me kuldn’t see everyfin’ since meez head was down, but me kuld see da bottom of dat chest getting’ closer and closer and mommy was yellin’, “Dezi stop!!! Dezi, let go of the joystick!!!” Did me lissen? Nope, me just pushed hawrder. And suddenly…BOOM CWASH BANG There we was up close and purrsonal wiff da chest of drawers. Mommys knees was pinned and there was nowhere to go.
Finally me let go of da joystick and looked wound. OMC We was so close but me still hadn’t gotten mommy to da pawdee box room. Sissy had quit bathin’ and was lookin’ at mommy and me wiff hers big ole gween eyes. Meez sure she was shakin’ hers head at me. She even let out a meow and me was sure she sed sumfin’ like, “Dat kidz nebber gunna lern. I’z nebber gunna git anee help rownd heer.” Me mewed back and mommy backed us away fwum da chest and back to da bed facin’ da pawdee box room again. Me looked at mommy and mewed, “Weally mommy? Don’t yous fink weez oughtta quit fur da day?” But it seemed mommy wasn’t payin’ tention to me at all. Stead she was tellin’ me bite da joystick again. Meez gunna stop here fur today, but stay tuned fur da next twainin’ posty and find out what happened next.
Till da next time…………………….Be Blest!!!

It’s time fur anudder Blest Sunday posty. We do so luv our Blest Sunday posties. You know weez blest each and every day, but we chose Sunday to talk ‘bout it cuz it’s also da day set aside when peeps gather togevver and worship God. A little known fact is dat mommy be a ordained minister. One of our furiends sed dat our Sunday posties made a lot more sense when she found dat out. So weez fawt weez wuld fwo it out there in case anypawdy else was wunnewin’. Anyways, as me sed weez be blest every day but this past week had us getting’ a few extwa blessins. When we got da puter and stawrted checkin’ fings out online we joined a cat gwoup full of pawsum peeps. We made so many wunnewful furiends and even when da website closed we kept in touch.
All those pawsum furiends became furmily or as we like to call them, awnties and unkles. Then weez stawrted sis Lexi’s facebook page and met lots of new wunnewful furiends. Yep yous know it, they became awnties and unkles too. Here we awe today in Blogville and our furmily just keeps wight on gwowin’. Once our little furmily was mommy, sis Lexi and me. Now…we can’t even count how many furmily members weez have. We awe so humbled and blest by da outpurrin’ of luv weez have weceived and like to take Sunday’s to tell you all how much we luv and purreciate y’all. We never fawt it wuld be pawssible to actually meet any of our wunnewful extended furmily fur to face, but dat didn’t matter, we luvv you all just da same.
And then da day came when we actually met one of our pawsum awnties live and in purrson wight here in our pawrtment. OMC Weez just kuldn’t believe it was weally happenin’. Now you all know hers as awnty anonymous cuz she’s innewnet shy, but she’s weal as weal can be. And then there’s awnty Ann what bwought us da Liberty Twee Cat Tree Steve fwum Fandango Cat Furniture donated to us. And then came BlogPaws where we met so many of our wunnerful Blogville furmily. Meeeeow what was once a mere dweam was weally happenin’. And of course while we was there, we got to spend a little time wiff awnty Mary who lived in Nashville. Awnty Mary followed sis Lexi’s facebook page fwum almost da beginnin’. We was da furst kitty peeps hers ever talked to online and there we was 2 years later meetin’ in da fur to face.
As you all know mommy be tech challenged. We have an awnty what’s posed to live in Austin, but she’s been away teachin’ English in Slovakia. Slovakia, can yous believe it? She’s been twyin’ fur years to get us to chat wiff hers on Skype, but mommy just can’t seem to figger da silly fing out. So when we got da message dat she was gunna be back in da states and wanted to meet up wiff us, we was all kinds of ‘cited. And we fawt maybe she kuld teach mommy how to use da Skype so dat when she left again we kuld talk to her this time. So da awwangements was all planned out and we waited
wather impatiently patiently to finally meet up wiff awnty Lizbeth. Hers name is actually Elizabeth but sissy and me call hers awnty Lizbeth. So on Tuesday when she called to say she was on hers way, our hearts stawrted racin in anticipation. When she awwived she had bwought a furiend wiff her, so we ended up wiff 2 awnties stead of one. MOL Awnty Sonia be a burd purrson, but dat’s okay weez not mind.
Awnty Lizbeth bwought us sum tweats and sum Sheba noms, and a whole lot of plastic bags fur mommy to use fur twash bags. We was all ‘cited over our gifts. And twuly blest to be meetin’ wiff her fur to face. Even flat scout Sammy P got in on da foto action cuz he awwived on Monday. After a way too short visit awnties Lizbeth and Sonia took mommy out to eat. Mommy finally had sumwhere nice to wear one of da pawsum new outfits dat awnty Jennifer and gwand awnty Peggy sent her. Mommy so enjoyed da meal and da conversation. Many Fanks awnty Lizbeth fur all da goodies and fur bein’ so nice to mommy and takin’ hers fur a gweat meal. She left to go back to Slovakia later in da week but purromised to weturn fur anudder visit when she comes back home. Just so yous know awnty Lizbeth, weez can’t wait fur a longer visit next time!!! We awe so blest to have so many wunnewful peeps in our lives.
And as you all know, sis Lexi wasn’t eatin’ last Furiday again. She wanted too and was fur sure hungwy, but it was like she “kuldn’t” eat. Mommy was so upset and worried. But a lot of purrayers and a few pepcid later and…sissy be eatin’ again. WooHoo!!!!!!!!! We awe so extwemely blest!!! We don’t even have da words to expwess our gwatitude. And weez wanna fank unkle Terry fur donatin’ to sis Lexi’s care. Da fundaraiser’s still active ifin you wuld like to donate. Da link is always on our sidebar, or you can click here to be twansported to it. And ifin yous wuld purrfur to send supplements, medicine or noms, we have an amazon wish list dat be here. As long as sissy wants to fight to be here, we don’t have any plans on givin’ up on her. And we wanna fank you all fur yous purrayers and words of support and encouragement. We awe twuly da mostest Blest kitties in da universe and have da mostest pawsumest furmily/furiends in da universe. Yep, dat’s YOU!!! As a little weminder, as you go ‘bout yous day, member to stop fur a minute and count yous blessings and give fanks fur them. Each day is a new day and a new weason to give fanks fur.
On a side note, we awe so very fankful dat Easy (aka: Easy Rider) our doggy bwofur’s daddy be okay and on da mend. There awe so many in Blogville and da world who need purrayers. So as you count yous blessins, take a minute to send up a little purrayer fur all those in need. They be so purreciated and don’t cost a fing.

Well it’s time fur anudder episode of Caturday’s flat scouts cat scout and this week weez had a gweat visit wiff Sammy P of 15 and meowing. Weez call him Sammy P cuz we have anudder Sammy at scouts too. Yous might know him, and fur sure hims will be visitin’ so weez’ll wait to tell ya’ ‘bout hims. Anyways, Sammy P’s flat got here Monday afternoon. Hims had been twavelin’ a long time and was purretty tired so hims chilled on da twee a bit. He is such a gentlemancat. Hims came in a tie and bwought da pawsumest made wiff luv toys fur sis Lexi and me. Hims didn’t wanna seem to take hims tie off so da furst night hims even slept in it. Da next day mommy took us all fur a stwoll after weez finished bwekky. He weally liked da stwoller. Hiims didn’t wanna get out when we got back in and so mommy sed hims kuld lay wound in it. It has a plush seat so no purrawllem. When hims finally got out, hims jumped up in da wheelchair.
Later dat day weez had company comin’ so mommy spent a lot of tim getting’ weady. We all laid wound and chilled out till our company awwived. And even Sammy p got his foto taken wiff our pawsum guest. Weez’ll tell ya’ all ‘bout dat visit tomowwo. He even went to dinner wiff da ladies. Later dat night we found out why Sammy didn’t wanna take hims tie off. See those post peeps ain’t very careful and hims got a little bent on hims furst outin’ and had a little cwimp iin hims neck. So sis Lexi sat hims down and told hims all ‘bout how embawwasses she had been goin’ to BlogPaws wiff hers neck neckid. But nopawdy pointed or stared, stead she was met wiff an outpurrin’ of luv and support. And dat it was da same fur him. Wasn’t nuffin’ hims kulda helped and nopawdy was gunna make fun of hims cuz of it. So hims took off hims tie and loossened up and had a gweat time. Mommy even twied to help hims wiff it as bestest she kuld.
Sammy P: And I so precieated it too, Dezi and Lexi and aunty Audra. And You girls are such sweeties. Dezi really does give up the scratcher lounger when Lexi wants it. I even got to lay on it a while till Lexi came out and Dezi told me I could lay anywhere else, but that if her sissy wanted da lounger I should give it to her. They have so many pawsum places to lay I didn’t mind giving it to Lexi. They have lots of great toys to play with and their mommy grows them grass all the time.
Yeah Sammy P weez do have sum gweat toys. We have sum amazin’ furiends and awnties dat have sent us lots of goodies and we luv to share. Sammy P weally liked hangin’ on da Liberty twee and lookin’ out da door. Hims sed it was weally quiet out here and weez told hims it’s cuz weez live in da kuntwy amung da old folks. So da only ‘citement is when da ambulance and fire twucks come or weez make it. MOL Weez weally enjoyed our visit wiff Sammy P and hims welkum back anytime. Hims will be headin’ out Monday fur da next leg of hims twavels. Weez gunna miss him but we can’t wait fur da next scout to awwive at our door.

Dezi and Lexi wiff guest Sammy P
Well today we cided to join da blogosphere in memberin’ those who came afur and awe now lost. We don’t believe in da rainbow bwidge, but we do believe in God and heaven. Now in meez showrt 5 and a half years meez lost many furiends dat weez met here but me duns’t know loss like mommy and sissy. So today sis Lexi’s gunna be tellin’ ‘bout da luv dat da world no longer knows.
Faynkz Dezi. Weez not like to dwell on da loss as it’s very draynin’ and negative, so stead weez gunna commemorayt da lives of those dat held a place in our hearts. I’z lost 3 brofurs in minez 16 yearz. And weez told ya’ a little ‘bout ‘em in udder posteez. But we never talk ‘bout da sisfur I’z lost. See I’z was born one of a litter of 3. I’z had a brofur and sisfur littermayt. Mommy took us awl in and lubbed us very much. But as you know ifin youz read our blog or followed us on facebook, our birthz were anyfin’ but normal. Minez brofur was froewn onto da grass and I’z was froewn into da wooden fence. Our littermayt sisfur was froewn onto da cement patio of da yard we was born at. By da age of 2 weeks it waz evident dat she had brayn damage. Mommy fawt so hard to keep her alive but at 3 weeks old minez littermayt gave up and didunt wanna fight anymore. So mommy took her to da VET and sent her off too heaven. Now I’z’ll be honezt and tell ya’ I’z didunt really know her and so I’z not miss her, but mommy finkz of herz offen. Fur da 3 weekz she did live, she knew nuffin’ but lubz and da warmff of a mommy.
And of course there’z da furzt Service Cat mommy had, Shad. I’z idunt know her neeber, but she iz a grayt inspirayshun fur those of us dat came after her. She only lived a very short 5 years, but she lubbed and waz lubbed a lifetime afur she left this world. She left her mark on mommys heart and in hers life. And then there’s my brofur, Devon. Himz took me in and taught me everyfin’ himz knew. When himz got da brayn tumor and had to go to heaven I’z really missed him. I’z didunt understand why himz had to go away. But I’z will awlwayz member himz lub and acceptance.
And then there was minez brofur Lucky. Only 28 dayz older than me, we kulda been littermaytz. We grew up togedder and learned to be service cats togedder and changed homez many timez wiff mommy togedder. Oh how I’z missed minez brofur Lucky when himz went to heaven a short 5 yearz after our birthz. Fur many yearz Christmas was nebber da saym. But time healz da broken heart and knowin’ himz wazn’t hurtin’ or sufferin’ anymore mayd lozin’ him eazier to bear. Himz luv lives on fru mommy and me.
Lastly I’z lozt sweet Ransom. He waz such a sweet boy and his life was far too short. But in himz short life he knew da luv of da agez frum mommy and me. Himz waz smart az a whip and charmed awl da peepz who met him. Himz fierce fightin’ spirit will live on furever az long az we member.
I habz known a lot of loss in minez yearz here, but I’z also known a lot of lubz. Those who came afur and have gone on to our mansion in heaven will a;ways be missed. But their lives and luv left a never endin’ mark on all those they touched. We will nebber furget them. Their legacies live on in me and in Deztinee and all those dat will come after us. I’z lubz minez mommy berry much and Dezi too. I’z nebber wanna leave them. But I’z habz a feelin’ I’z won’t know anymore loss, but stead sis Dezi will have to help mommy fru it. Minez body iz getting’ old and fingz don’t alwayz work rite anymore. But I’z left minez mark and will keep rite on duin’ it till God callz me to heaven to join all those I’z sed goodbye to. I’z not eaten in da lazt 2 dayz again, and so mommy of course iz worried. Any purrayerz you kuld spare wuld fur shur be purreshayted. Youz know mommy dusn’t habz much money, but she givez ebberfin’ she haz to us. Epic, unconditional, unending luv iz what mayd each of us choose mommy az our very own. 1 day or 100 yearz wiff mommy feelz like a lifetime. I’z been very blezt to habz da life I’z have and so were all those we celebrate today. I’z wuldn’t change minez life fur anyfin’ in da world and I’z know da udderz wuld say da same. Love Lives on Furever!!!
Fank you sissy, but don’t you be finkin’ ‘bout goin’ anywhere, mommy and me need you too much. And yous so wight, we awe so very blest to have da lives we do. Purrlease just member dat luv knows no bounds and will as sissy sez, liv on furever and ever.
Weez joinin’ Rascal and Rocco fur da Pet Pawade blog hop and will be postin’ at da Tabby Cat Club today too.
