Winter Is Here
Hey is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Let me tell ya’ it has turned cooooooold here in da last few days. Cats and kittens, mouses and rats!!! I’s don’t like this thing called Winter. It can just pack up and go away fur all I’s care. We went to mommys doctors ‘pointment yesfurday, and everytime we got outta da car it was shiver me timbers time. Some of you are new here and aren’t furmiliar with our doctor day routine, so let me ‘splain. We go to da doctor furst and then we have to head to da next town over to go to da farmacy. And when we got there yesfurday mommy threw a fit. Okay, Not really a fit, but she was sad dat she had furgotten da camera. See, da town had decorated da street with these gigantic waving santas. Mommy said she would have luvved to get mines foto with da santas and da one reindeer in front of da bank.
Anyways, we turned in mommys purrscription and then huddled up and strolled down da street to da bank. What a bummer trip dat was. None of da regular peeps were there, so I’s didn’t get any treats. Can you believe it? None of them had one treat fur a purretty little Southern Belle kitty girl. We got all froze over fur nuffin’. So we bundled back up and headed back down da street to da farmacy. They had mommys’ medicine and mines treat ready, so we could get goin’. They cooed and talked ‘bout how much I’s grown since they saw me last month, and sent us on our way. By then it was getting’ colder and darker. Da sun hadn’t shown at all yesfurday and so it got dark really early.
Anyways, ya’ know dat ‘lectric blanky I’s just learned ‘bout? Well it seems to have a short and isn’t workin’. Dat’s not a good thing, cuz sis Dezi says it’s gonna get colder befur it gets warm again. So, we stopped at da Dollar store to see ifin they had ‘lectric blankys and how much they might cost. They didn’t have any ‘lectric blankys at all. Nope, not one. Not even one in puke pink (which we hate, by da way). So we bundled up again and headed home. We got home just befur it got all dark outside. Sissy was happy to see us, but glad she had gotten to stay home where it was warm. ‘Specially after I’s told her ‘bout da treat situation. Mommy and me got all warmed up and then she fixed dinner fur me and sis Dezi and sat down to check emails.
It’s pawssible today’s also Blooper Furiday. Mommy says she doesn’t
‘member me lookin’ this way when she pushed da button. MOL
So there we were, all feelin’ toasty and warm when there came a loud knock at da door. We weren’t ‘spectin’ anything or anypawdy, so mommy flipped on da porch light and opened da door slowly. There stood a handsum young man at our door. Mommy always says God’s gonna have to send her a husband to knock on da door, or she’ll miss him. But this wasn’t God answerin’ dat purrayer. Da nice young man introduced himself and said he was a veteran on a mission. Well, let me tell ya’, ifin there’s one thing I’s learned since bein’ alive, is dat even with all da purroblems, we live in da greatest country on da planet. And one of da reasons our country be so great is all those service men, women and anipals who answered da call to purrtect and serve our country and keep all of us safe and secure da freedoms granted us by God and our fur fathers in da Constitution.
With tears in her eyes, mommy looked at da nice young man and said, “Thank you for your service.” And do you know what he told mommy? Well, besides your welcome.? He told mommy dat he’d been out since early yesfurday meownin’ and she was da furst purrson to say dat to him. Da tears really began to fall now and mommy ‘pawlogized to him fur all da disrespect he had encountered. He was tryin’ to raise money and get sponsors to donate so he could send care boxes to those soldiers who are still serving away from home. He gave mommy da stats on how many service men/women commit suicide cuz of PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder). And mommy continued to cry. Of course we had no money to give him, but we wished him well and will continue to purray fur him and all those serving our great country. We don’t know what has happened to this country we luvs so much dat in a whole day, mommy would be da only one to thank a service man fur his service. Soldiers don’t choose which orders they follow or what wars/battles they fight. Even ifin you don’t agree with a war or battle, You should still be grateful to those who fought it. After all, you didn’t have to and you slept soundly because they did.
Well said sis Raena, well said.
Let’s wrap it up fur today. We’re behind on our visitin’ and we’ve got some fotos mommy needs to get loaded on da catputer, cuz we all received some blessings this week dat we’ll be tellin’ everypawdy ‘bout on Sunday. And we’ve got those letters to Santa to write too.
Oh sissy, I’s can’t wait. We’re gonna join up with Rascal and Rocco and their amazin’ co-hosts fur da weekly Pet Parade. And we’ve got a new neighbor we’ll be meowin’ ‘bout soon.
Till da next time………………………………………Be Blest!!!
