Hey Raena, where did you and mommy go the other day to get all those britches she’s been washin’?
I’s don’t know sissy, but after we sold our aluminum cans mommy saw a sign and said “Oh my cats Raena, we’ve gotta go back”. We did some kinda middle of the road turn and went into this big store with racks and racks of clothes. She kept throwin’ jeans in this basket till we couldn’t see the bottom anymore.
Well how many green papers till all those blue jeans cost?
What do I’s know ‘bout green papers, sissy? I’s know mommy was happy, and there was purrlenty left over fur treats. What? (Mommy says something to Raena) Oh, okay. Sissy, mommy says they had a bag sale at the Good Will and she got 10 pairs of jeans and a couple dress pants fur $2.00.
Oh, dat’s purretty good. Me thinks she has plans to cut some of them off and make some shorts fur summer. That means she’s gonna be draggin’ out the sewin’ machine soon.
Sewin’ Machine? What’s a sewin’ machine. sissy?
Oh Raena, the sewin’ machine is soooooooo much fun. There’s strings fur playin’ everywhere. Altho’ mommy gets really mad when you walk over the foot pedal. Somethin’ ‘bout a needle goin’ thru her finger. So whatever you do, stay away from that pedal. Me knows it looks like fun, but there’s purrlenty of other things to play with.
There’s a foot pedal? Am I’s gonna learn to sew sissy?
Nope Raena, sewin’ ain’t on our list of duties. It’s kinda like the carpet monster and mop. They exist, but we don’t have to use ‘em.
Well that’s good. Cuz you know this wheelchair drivin’ thing isn’t as easy as I’s thought it would be. But it sure is fun, watchin’ you run. MOL
That’s not nice Raena. Me just wants to make sure you don’t run over me. You can sure be dangerous with that thing. Besides, you’re not s’posed to be watchin’ me. Maybe that’s why it’s takin’ so long fur you to learn.
Mommy says I’s no more dangerous than you were sissy. And that’s I’s right on schedule.
She’s just tryin’ to make you feel better Raena, cuz me’s a wonderful driver.
Sure you are sissy. Like the other day when you ran us into the wall?.
That was your fault Raena. Ifin you hadn’t swiped me’s leg, me wouldn’t have veered off course. Anyways, this isn’t Service Cat Monday, it’s Blest Sunday. And are we ever blest. As we told everypawdy on Furiday, mommy has a ‘pointment to start getting’ her teeths fixed. Ifin anypawdy missed the good mews you can read ‘bout it here. That means the total green papers we need to get all the work done is gonna be less than originally anticipated. Mommy says she’ll have to wait till after the ‘pointment to know exactly how many teeth are removed by the surgeon on Fursday, but she thinks our total will drop by ‘bout a thousand dollars. She will make the adjustment to the fundraiser once she knows fur sure. In the meantime, ifin ya’ wanna help us out, you can donate directly to our paypal at: firstname.lastname@example.org or the fundraiser here.
That’s such pawsum mews sissy. We’re so excited. And we’ve got a pawssible ride, we just need to lock her in. Ifin anypawdy can spare a purrayer we’d purreciate it. The lady we’re talkin’ to is a little scared to drive in the city. But we know she can do it, we just need her to get the courage to say yes. And we’d also like to say a meowsy big fanky fanks to awnty Debbie, Katie and Waffles fur their donation to help mommy. I’s think that Waffles is a handsum kitty boy. But I’s hear he’s a real ladies mancat. And we also wanna fanky fank our Anonymous Angels. They’ve not only helped with green papers, but also in helpin’ mommy navigate the system, and tryin’ to find mommy a ride.
Dat’s right Raena. There’s been a couple times they’ve pulled mommy off the ledge durin’ all of this. And me also wants to say fank you to awnty Vonda and all her kitties. She sent some green papers fur me to get a new harness/vest to match yours and mommy’s furinally well enuff to measure me and get it ordered. Me can’t wait fur it to get here.
Me either sissy. We’ll be stylin’ together.
Sure we will Raena. (Dezi rolls her eyes) Anyways, there’s all the other blessings we’re fankful fur today too. We have a luvvin’ furever home, food in our bellies and on our plates, and the bestest furiends in the universe. We always wanna remind ya’ll to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the many blessings in your lives. No matter what’s goin’ on, there’s always a blessing just waitin’ to be found. Every night we purray and ask God to keep His hands on all our furiends and bless ya’ll abundantly.
I’s luvs purrayer time, sissy. Let’s not furget to link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies befur we go. (The phone rings and Raena rushes to try to answer it before mommy. Mommy grabs the phone and a short conversation ensues. Mommy begins to cry and say a bunch of thank yous and God bless yous.) OMC, OMC, OMC!!!!! While we was writin’ this very posty, the lady mommy’s been talkin’ to ‘bout takin’ her to her surgery ‘pointment called. Guess what she said?
Well Raena, by the tears in mommy’s eyes and the Cheshire grin, It’s a GO!!! Mommy now has a ride to her ‘pointment on Fursday!!! WooHoo (Dezi and Raena zoom thru the house and run up the cat tree and end up together in mommy’s lap) We gotta go and help mommy celebrate. Don’t furget to enter our give away fur that pawsum LumaSoothe by clickin’ the entry photo above. And check out our review here.

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle.
Raena, what are you doin’?
I’s took a break from lookin’ out the door. Things are really blowin’ ‘round out there. I’s never seen anythin’ like it. Mommy says it’s cuz this is mine’s furst Spring, and there’s nuffin’ quite like Spring.
Well, that’s true. Spring brings warmer weather, wind, storms, and all kinds of new stuffs.
That warmer weather stuffs is so right, sissy. You know when mommy and me went to her ‘pointment on Monday, it was really hot out. Fank catness we had air conditionin’ in the car. Did you enjoy your alone time?
Me sure did Raena. Me napped, used the pawdee box without you stalkin’ me, played a little and, well, then me kinda missed you and mommy. Ya’ll were gone longer than me thought you’d be.
Yeah, sissy, it did take us longer than mommy had originally thought. You know, an angel, and we know she was an angel, cuz nopawdy knows her or had heard anythin’ ‘bout what she told mommy; and we haven’t been able to find her again. Mommy had called a dentist office to see ‘bout their prices and this angel told mommy to call her case worker and get them to approve her fur emergency assistance to get her teeth fixed. Mommy had never heard of such, and when she called her case worker, she hadn’t either. But eventually mommy got somepawdy that told her Medicaid would pay fur any emergency extraction deemed medically necessary with prior approval. So Monday we headed out to a dentist to see ifin any of mommy’s teeth qualify.
We was runnin’ late cuz mommy accidentally drifted off a few
hours minutes in her chair. You know, she was s’posed to stay awake all night. Anyways, I’s danced and chortled till mommy agreed to take me, and we rushed off. As soon as we got outta the complex we ended up behind this guy in a pick up truck that was swervin’ all over the road. Even tho’ it’s illegal to use those cell fones while drivin’, ‘pawrently he just couldn’t wait to chat it up with whoever. It was purretty scary, so mommy kinda just backed off and we followed him till we got to a town with a red light so we could safely get ‘round him. It wasn’t till we got to the office that mommy realized she had furgotten to bring the camera, and her x-rays. Anyways, we were the only ones in the office and the staff was really nice. They didn’t really make googly eyes over me tho’. I’s not know what was wrong with them, but at least they were nice to mommy.
Doctor Washington came in and poked ‘round in mommy’s mouth a bit and ordered a panoramic x-ray. We had to go to this room where mommy’s head disappeared into this helmet that went ‘round and ‘round her head. It was purretty cool. It was kinda like the last one she had done, but this time she was sittin’ down. Anyways, after the x-ray, Doctor Washington, said there was 6 teeths that Medicaid would pay fur. The criteria fur them payin’ is that death is immanent ifin said teeth are not removed in a timely manner. Then he told her she’d have to go to Oklahoma City to have them removed cuz no oral surgeons ‘round here take Medicaid. The appointment was made fur next Fursday the 30th. Now mommy has to find a ride. The office requires somepawdy drive mommy to her surgery ‘pointment and wait fur her to get finished.
Yeah, me knows mommy’s been a little stressed over that one, cuz we don’t have anypawdy who can take her. She’s been callin’ ‘round to all kinds of places tryin’ to hire somepawdy fur that day. Our closest furiends live down ‘round the Dallas/Ft Worth area, or Northern Oklahoma. ‘Course, me would make a shout out to ya’ll; ifin you’d be willin’ to help us out and take mommy, we fur sure would get ya’ some green papers fur your troubles.
We sure would sissy. Anyways, after the dentist visit, mommy decided to take her cans and sell ‘em. The trunk’s been full fur a couple of months now. We made a whole $15.00, so mommy treated me to some bacon. Furst, we stopped off at the Wally World to get mommy some bread and look at the treats. Mommy said they didn’t have any treats we would eat, so we left and stopped at the pet store to get a bag of somethin’. We got a new Ulta store last Christmas, well actually Ardmore got it. Anyways, we walked ‘round in there a bit too. Mommy luvs that beauty stuffs. The peeps there sure were
pushy helpful. They kept tryin’ to get mommy to buy somethin’ help mommy out. “Do you want a bag to place your items in? Can I help ya’ find somethin’?” Mommy kept tellin’ ‘em we was just lookin’, but they kept hoverin’ anyways. When mommy furinally got tired of it, we headed to the mickey D’s to get me some bacon; and headed home.
Well, wha’d ya’ think ‘bout the bacon, Raena?
I’s not sure sissy. I’s guess it’s okay, but I’s would rather stick with freeze dried chicky breasts. I’s didn’t know why we didn’t stop at the place that said chicken filets (Chick-fil-A). Anyways, it was a long day, but I’s did enjoy spendin’ time with mommy. But I’s missed you too sissy. I’s was glad to be home.
Me was glad ya’ll were home too. Me got a LumaSoothe treatment and then we had dinner and treats. Dat’s always a great way to end a day. Meowin’ of the LumaSoothe, don’t furget to head on over and enter our give away by clickin’ the Enter Here graphic below.
Fanky fanks fur the reminder sissy. Now let’s link up with Rascal, Rocco and their pawsum co-hosts fur the Pet Parade and let mommy make some more calls to find her a ride. We can sure use the purrayers of our furiends, so that we can get all this worked out. Havin’ Medicaid pay fur these 6 teeths, means that mommy doesn’t need as much money to get the rest of her teethies fixed. We’d like to remind everypawdy ‘bout the fundraiser here, just in case you wanna donate and/or share. And you can always donate directly to our paypal with our email address: email@example.com.

RaenaBelle and Deztinee
(Mommy clears away the breakfast dishes and Dezi heads up the Liberty tree with Raena in pursuit. Dezi reaches the top first and turns and hisses at Raena who reaches out and swipes Dezi’s back leg.)
Quit tryin’ to trip me Raena!!!
Are you stickin’ your tongue out at me?
Well then quit hissin’ at me sissy.
Me didn’t hiss at ya’ till ya’ tried to trip me.
Well, what ‘bout earlier?
You jumped on top of me Raena. Wha’d ya’ expect me to do?.
I’s just wanted to play sissy.
You always wanna play Raena. Ya’ know sometimes it’s nice to just lay back and take a nap. Or fur instance, after a meal, some of us like to wash up.
I’s like a good nap as much as any kitty sissy, and cleanin’ up is a must. ‘Specially ifin I’s wanna ketch the attentions of a certain sweet boy cat. But mine’s neck furs always get caught in mine’s mouth. They seem to always be in mine’s way. Do you have that purroblem sissy?
Me did when me was a little baby kitty girl Raena, but not so much anymore. Your neck ruff is longer than me’s is. But me’s bloomers are longer than yours. And me’s whiskers are longer than yours too.
You don’t know that fur sure, sissy. Mommy says mine’s whiskers are purrlenty long. I’s just keep getting’ into things and breakin’ off the ends.
Yep, mommy hates it when ya’ do that. She says our whiskers are very m’purrtant, and we should take care of them.
I’s saw her pickin’ one up off the carpet the other day. Does she plan on tryin’ to glue it back on me or somethin’?
No silly. Mommy just luvs us so much she likes to keep those whiskers we shed. She’s got a jar full of ‘em fur each kitty she’s ever luvved. Me knows it sounds really strange, but she is only human after all. And those humans do some really weird stuffs sometimes.
No kitten sissy. Those whiskers ain’t gonna do her any good. Mommy’s wider than even your whiskers. (Raena snickers under her breath)
(Dezi lets out a little giggle and then gets serious)
(Dezi tries to hold back the grin and laugh growing inside her)
You should be ashamed of yourself. That’s not nice.
What? I’s was just meowin’ the truth. Mommy says we should always tell the truth, no matter what.
We should Raena. But sometimes, you just shouldn’t meow anythin’, ‘specially ifin the truth isn’t nice or would hurt somepawdy’s feelings.
Nope sissy, that’s not what mommy says. I’s purretty sure she says to always tell the truth, even ifin it hurts.
Raena, you’re still young and haven’t learned everythin’ just yet. There’s this thing called tact. It’s the way you meow those not so nice truths so that you don’t hurt anypawdy’s feelings.
Oh yeah? Well then just how would you meow that mommy’s wide.
Uh, well, uhm, (Dezi meowmbles under her breath) You just don’t meow it Raena. That’s how ya’ meow it, you just don’t.
Well that’s no fun. Hey, did you hear mommy talkin’ ‘bout her big ‘pointment tomorrow?
Yep, me sure did. It’s gonna be a long night. Her ‘pointment’s early in the meownin’, so she’ll have to stay up all night to be able to go. Me’s kinda hopin’ she takes you. Me would have the whole house all to me’s self. Me could nap and bathe and do all kinds of things in peace and quiet. Least fur a little while.
I’s hope she takes me too. I’s can show off mine’s purretty new harness and leash. And what do you mean, peace and quiet? We won’t be gone fur very long. But I’s not loud. The neighbors are loud. But not me.
You sure could, Raena. And yes, the neighbors are loud, but you can be too. Anyways, that’s the plan. When mommy’s gettin’ ready to go, you need to dance ‘round and drag out your harness, so mommy’ll know you wanna go really bad. ‘Course that also means that mommy’s gonna be really tired. So me told her we could skip our regular Service Cat Monday posty this week. But just this once.
But we’ll be back on Wednesday, right sissy?
Absolutely Raena. And we’ll have somethin’ on Wednesday that nopawdy’s gonna wanna miss.
We’re havin’ a give away too, aren‘t we sissy? This will be mine’s furst give away ever. I’s so excited I’s can’t hardly wait.
That’s right, Raena. We’ve kinda been teasin’ everypawdy with an occasional foto. And furinally, the day has come to meow all ‘bout it. You know, we are so blest. Bein’ Influencers allow us oppurrtunities we might not otherwise get. We really do like tryin’ out new things to tell our furiends ‘bout. But the greatest blessing we have are our furiends.
I’s agree sissy. I’s luvs our furiends so much. Did you see that we got another donation fur mommy’s dental fundraiser? We so wanna say fanky fank ya’ to our furiends over at Hairballs and Hissyfits. Ifin ya’ haven’t met Amarula, Frodo and Zulu, you should go by and check ‘em out. And ifin you would like to help mommy get her much needed dental work done, you can donate directly through paypal without any fees. Just use our email, firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can also donate through the fundraiser by clickin’ here. We really purreciate all those who have helped so far. We’re ‘bout half way to our goal and mommy’s mouth feelin’ all better. Hopefully, she’ll be smilin’ again real soon. She’s a little embarrassed to smile right now, and the air makes her teeth hurt worse; so she tries to keep her mouth shut most of the time.
Those things are all true Raena. But we are blest to have a mommy that still puts us furst, no matter how she feels. And we’ve been blest with some nice Spring weather this comin’ week. That means lots of strolls fur us. We can hear the birds singin’ and the wind blowin’ the furesh new leaves that are growin’ on the trees outside. Mommy says we’re in fur at least one more cold snap befur Spring furinally arrives to stay. You know, each day is a gift, a blessing to celebrate just bein’ alive. We are so fankful to have so much luv in our lives. ‘Member to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. No matter how bad things might seem, there is always a blessing just waitin’ to be found.
And don’t furget the Sunday Selfies with the Kitties Blue sissy. Maybe a couple of those Wednesday teaser fotos would be good. We hope you’ll all stop by to find out what it is.
Till the next time………………………………………….Be Blest!!!

(Mommy fumbles around in the kitchen making Dezi and Raena’s breakfast and mumbles something about the time)
Hey, sissy? What’s mommy mumblin’ ‘bout? Is it already brekky time? I’s not sure I’s really hungry yet. I’s know I’s not ready to hunt. ketch and kill anythin’.
Don’t let mommy hear you meowin’ that, we’ll never get brekky furst thing in the meownin’ again. Seems humans think they know better than God and change their clocks a couple times a year.
What does that mean, they change the clocks? What does a clock have to do with anythin’?
Oh Raena, the clock has Eeeverythin’ to do with everythin’ humans do. Even our mommy. The clock tells them when to get up, when to go to sleep, when to work, when to eat…
When to eat?!!! Why don’t they just go on tummy time? It works fur us.?
Ya’ think? You wanna know a secret?
A secret? Of course I’s wanna know a secret. What is it?
Calm down, mommy’ll think you’re tryin’ to rush her. The secret is, we think we run on our tummy time. But the truth is, mommy programmed our tummy clocks to the humans clocks so that our tummy time alarm goes off at the time mommy wants it too. Mommy’s a sneaky one, ya know.
What? What are you meowin’ ‘bout sissy? Our tummies have clocks? Did mommy furget to change them last night? Cuz really, I’s not think I’s hungry yet.
Trust me, by the time mommy gets our brekky ready, you will be. The hands on the clock may have moved fast an hour, but mommy’s movin’ in slow motion. Happens fur ‘bout a week every time the time changes. ‘Specially since it’s turned cold again.
(Dezi and Raena look over at mommy who looks a bit confused at where she was in preparing their breakfast)
Don’t worry, she’ll figger it out. Did you see the cool colorin’ book mommy got yesfurday?
Mommy didn’t realize the painting was flipped over till she
loaded these fotos this meownin’. 😦
I’s sure did. We won that fur mommy from awnty Marjorie and the Dash Kitten Crew. It travelled across the whole world to get here. And ya’ know what? I’s could still smell the kitties. It was really nice meetin’ some of our furiends. Ya’ know gettin’ to smell ‘em like that, I’s feel like I’s know them in the fur.
Fanky fank ya’. Mommy’s gonna have fun.
Yep, I’s exchanged a few scents too. Fank ya’ll, mommy’s gonna have lots of colorin’ fun. And she put the little paintin’ on her desk so she could look at it every day.
Hey Dezi, don’t furget to tell everypawdy ‘bout the fundraiser fur mommy. She got a big surprise this week.
Yep Raena, she sure did. An Angel sent us $800.00 to our paypal this week. Ya’ know what that means? We’re ‘bout half way to our goal. Fank you soooooooooooooo much. Of course mommy cried, cuz she was so grateful. You know, mommy hates that she needs help. Askin’ others to help us, is purrobably her least favorite thing. She’s always said she’d do whatever she had to in order fur us to get what we need, but when it comes to herself, she’d rather go without. But what’s goin’ on with her teethies is really bad and we’re desperate. That’s why we started the fundraiser fur her. We need our mommy to be here and as healthy as she can be to take care of us. Even ifin she moves in slow motion. She’s our slow motion mommy and we luv her. Ifin you’d like to donate, you can do so directly to our Paypal at: lexi(dot)dezi(at)yahoo(dot)com (fur your copy and paste convenience: email@example.com), or at the fundraiser here.
We also wanna say fank you to awnty Petal. She and mommy met thru sis Lexi on facebook, and they be like sisfurs. Awnty Petal be family and we luv her. Ya’ know when mommy got really really sick back when our ‘pawrtment flooded, awnty Petal called the pawlice to come check on mommy. That might not seem like a big deal till ya’ know, awnty Petal lives across the big pond. We are so blest to have so many wonderful and caring furiends.
We sure are sissy. And don’t furget, awnty Vonda sent money so mommy could buy you a new harness and leash just like mines. We’ll be stylin’ together.
Sure nuff. Fank you awnty Vonda, me can’t wait. Altho’ mommy did say me had to wait till she felt a little better so she could focus and order the right thing. Seems she can’t make out the numbers on the measurin’ tape right now. MOL Anyways, we are so fankful fur all of you; and we feel so blest to have you in our lives. Don’t furget to take a minute today and every day to give fanks fur the blessings in your lives.
Looks like mommy’s furinally got our brekky ready, sissy. Let’s link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and go eat. I’s sure nuff hungry now.
Till the next time……………………………………………Be Blest!!!
