Meowllo and happy Caturday to you all. Mommy and me was so excited dat me just had to purrticipate in Caturday Art hosted by da gawjus Athena. Excited ’bout what you ask? Well as you know we’s been havin’ catputer purroblems and so we haven’t been able to be online or visit very much fur a while. And as ya’ know, cuz me told ya’ dat uncle Garth and awnty Mary Beth sed they wuld pay to get it fixed ifin mommy kuld find somewhere to take it. Mommy had called ’round to da three places listed in da fone book and found dat only one place was still in business, and dat it was gonna take a week to get our catputer fixed up and back to us once mommy dropped it off. Of course da repair place was a good 45 miles away. As you know we also had da big inspection dat mommy had to get ready fur and then there was da takin’ care of da confused me, so da catputer got put on da back burner till we kuld get thru with da inspection. So on Fursday mommy finally got da catputer over to da repair shop. Da peeps their was really nice but business is business; so they told mommy there was a few in front of us and they wouldn’t be able to even look at our catputer till next Tuesday. Mommy knew there was nuffin’ she kuld do ’bout it, so she left da catputer and hoped da fan was da only purroblem. Mommy called awnty Mary Beth and gave her an update and then back home she came. Yep, she had gone by herself cuz she was pickin’ up sis Lexi too and just wanted to be alone fur a little bit. And yes, me was worried and pacin’ da floor
nappin’ on da cat tree till she got home. We finally settled in fur da evenin’. At least da catputer was at da repair shop in line to be fixed.
Mommy was able to find a way to get to some of me’s fotos so we kuld post an update yesfurday, and then we settled in fur another visitless day. We miss everypawdy so much and can’t wait to get ’round to check in with ya’ll. Anyways, a little after noon yesfurday da fone rang. It was da nice lady at da catputer repair shop. And she sed, “Your computer’s ready to be picked up. The motherboard fan was really gunked up, but once we cleaned it, it looks like new and is runnin’ like new.” Mommy was like, “Are you kiddin’? Really? Sweeeeeet, I’ll be right over.” Mommy called awnty Mary Beth and she was just as excited as mommy. And since da fan didn’t have to be replaced they charged us a little less fur da repair. So awnty Mary Beth sed, “Get Dezi something for Easter from us.” So off we went to pick up da catputer and somethin’ special fur me. And da peeps at da catputer repair shop sed mommy shuld get a fan table to help keep da catputer cool. So dat meant a stop at da wally world. Of course we was exhausted when we got home so mommy wasn’t able to get all da fotos she’s taken while da catputer’s been out put on it, but we did get one fur today. And me got a really cool purresent from awnty Mary Beth and uncle Garth, Gizmo and da gang. But you’ll have to wait till we can get all da fotos loaded up to see it. So it looks like we’s gonna be back to visitin’ by Monday. Yes we have a lot of fotos to load. Fank da cats, cuz me really wants to know what all ya’ll have been up to. We also got a call from a really nice lady on Fursday dat just might be full of news. We’ll tell ya’ ’bout dat in another posty. In da meantime, enjoy Caturdays’ art and have a wonderful Easter.
Till da next time…………………………………..Be Blest!!!

Meowllo everypawdy, weez here. Mommy’s been tryin’ to relax and rest up after sis Lexi’s 36 hour throw up fest, but she sed we wasn’t missin’ 2 Blest Sundays in a row. Cuz no matter how bad things might get, or what’s goin’ on, weez still blest and me wants to meow ‘bout it. As ya’ know we find blessings in everything. We are blest to have all of you in our lives, and we are blest to have each other and a warm home full of luv. But we also received a kupple material blessings this past week. And we are so thankful to those who blest us.
Furst up is our new pawsum humidifier. Ifin you’ll recall, sis Lexi recently had to go to da VET and hers skin was dry and flakey; leavin’ depawsits of white dandruff all over her black furs. and of course da itchy ripple skins. Our humidifer broke a few years ago and mommy just didn’t have da money to buy another one, so we just dealt with da dryness as bestest we kuld. Well, one of our pawsum awnties sent us money to buy a new one and it arrived this week. Mommy got it all set up and placed on da vanity beside da bed where Lexi likes to sleep away da day. Within 24 hours da skin ripplin’ stopped and we all kuld breathe a little easier. Fank you so much awnty Anonymous, we reallly purreciate and luv our new humidifier.
But dat’s not da only material blessin’ we got this week. We also received 2 bags of da Primal freeze dried noms weez been eatin’. You all know mommy changed me’s noms recently, and she’s workin’ hard to get us to an all natural, species appropriate raw diet. Altho’ she sed ifin da freeze dried raw is where me draws da line, she can live wiff dat. She sez it ain’t purrfect, but it’s close. Course it be spensive, but as you know mommy will do whatever it takes to keep us healthy, so it’s really nice to have received 2 bags. Fank you soooooo much LouLou and awnty Suzanne. And hey, ifin you like gawjus kitties, good food and breads, you need to check out hers bloggy. She posted a gweat pizza recipe da other day, and she also has a recipe book out. You know pizza be our favorite human food so weez been meowin’ at mommy to make us one. We even purromissed to share.
We woke up this meownin’ to a parkin’ lot full of emergency vehicles and da ambulance. They left wiff an empty stretcher so all must be well. Mommy sez we are very blest dat none of those peeps was here fur us. And we have sum sunshine today and a little warmer temps out so me’s hopin’ to talk mommy into a stroll later on. In da meantime, weez joinin’ da Kitties Blue fur da Sunday Selfie blog hop; and altho’ weez a day late, weez joinin’ Athena fur da Caturday Art blog hop too. Fank you all fur your purrayers fur sis Lexi, keep ‘em comin’ ifin ya’ don’t mind. And weez’ll be by as soon as we can to visit ya’.
What are you thankful fur this week?

Happy Caturday. Well we went AWOL this past week cuz mommy had to hunker down and help me make a cool ride fur da Cardwood Derby at Cat Scouts. She got a 1 week reprieve last week, but didn’t figger dat was gunna happen again. She also got a little sick, so it was purretty slow goin’. Anyways, by da time we went MIA mommy had already destroyed 3 boxes and was tryin’ to find more. Mommy tried followin’ da written instructions, da picture instructions and da pics in her head. But she readily admits she isn’t da crafty kind. She is in awe of those dat are, but dat just isn’t her talent. Mommy be da artist part of da arts and crafts. She paints and draws and sings and plays instruments and writes of course; but give her craft paper, glue and scissors and she breaks out in hives. When she was yunger, like when dinosaurs walked da earth, she even messed up da linky circles kids made fur Christmas trees.
So after box 4 was all cut up and didn’t resemble anythin’ but a cut up box, she threw her hands in da air and sed, “Dezi my dear, there are just some things your mommy can’t do, and I’m afraid this is one of them. I’m sorry sweety.” And she sat down and started coughin’. (member she had gotten sick) Me jumped up in mommy’s lap and meowed and patted her face wiff meez paw. Me was tellin’ her dat she was meez mommy and there wasn’t anythin’ she kuldn’t do. And durin’ her coughin’ spell a light went off in her head and she decided to try to draw a car fur herself. So once she quit coughin’ she grabbed up her sketch book and pencils and started drawin’. Me laid on da arm of da chair watchin’ mommy make magic wiff a pencil and she looked over at me and sed, “Y Baby, you’re a little Southern Belle, you need a pick’em up truck.” Meez moniker at Cat Scouts is Dezi La Belle. Anyways, mommy took da pencil to da sketch pad once more and drew up a truck. Voila, Dezi’s Motors was born.
We had a few more boxes, but this was da last of them, so she had to get it right da furst time cuz we only had 1 really nice sized box dat me wuld fit in. And to enter da Derby, me must sit in meez vehicle. So once more da measurin’ tape came out and da liquid pencil marked da areas fur cuts. Me hopped on da cat tree to watch from a safe distance as mommy can be quite dangerous wiff cut cardboard pieces and and a box cutter. A cut here, a fold there and a piece of Duck tape later and meez pick up truck began to take shape. Me kuld see hers vision now and it was purretty cool. She was workin’ hard and fast and started sweatin’ up a storm. Mommy decided it was time fur a break and so me looked over da unfinished truck and headed to da back to take a nap wiff sis Lexi. It wasn’t long afur me heard da sound of cuttin’ on da cardboard and duck tape bein’ applied. Suddenly mommy appeared in da doorway of da bedroom and sed, “Come see your truck angel. We need to take your picture so we can get you entered.” Meez respawnse, A half opened eye and a yawn dat sed, yeah, not right now mommy.
After all dat work, mommy wasn’t takin’ no fur an answer. She came in and picked me up and carried me to meez awaitin’ 1/2 ton chariot. She put me in meez truck and inserted da last piece of box dat separated da cab from da bed. Well me wasn’t havin’ any of dat. Da largest cut me kuld see was da windshield, but there was actually a windshield there so me kuldn’t escape dat way. Mommy was tryin’ to hold on to me fur dear life and snap a foto wiff hers other hand, but dat wasn’t workin’ out so good fur her. Me saw an openin’ she was callin’ a window, and stuck meez head fru it. Let me tell ya’ ifin a cat can get there head and whiskers fru sumfin’ we are pawsitive we can fit our whole body fru. (dat is a fallacy) So me purrceded to try to exit out da window. One thing we cats don’t think ‘bout is dat our whiskers can be smooshed flat, our bodies…not so much. Head fru me pulled meez furst paw fru and…OMC…me got stuck. Mommy fru da camera down and tried pushin’ me back in da cab of meez truck to no avail. Me wasn’t goin’ back in there fur nuffin’. She was sure we was gunna have to use da jaws of life to get me out. Dat wuld mean no truck and no entry fur da derby. And well, mommy wasn’t havin’ dat. Me finally managed to get fru da window wiff da truck and meself still in tact. Scroll over da fotos below to see da captions.
Mommy picked up da camera and took out da cab insert and sat down. She looked at me wiff a tear in hers eye and sed, “Oh darlin’ I worked really hard to make you a truck, won’t you purrlease let me take your picture?” Me cocked meez head to one side, very doglike, and meowed, “Well, since you asked so nicely and you did put a lot of work into meez truck, me will let you take sum fotos.” And me jumped right in meez truck and started checkin’ it out. And yes, da flashy box was flash, flash, flashin’ away. We didn’t have anythin’ to wrap meez truck wiff and mommy didn’t have enuff acrylic paint to paint meez truck so it still looks like a brown box wiff duck tape, but hey, rednecks luv duck tape, it’s a miracle worker. But we didn’t have enuff duck tape to wrap up meez whole truck eever. Considerin’ this is totally not sumfin’ mommy be good at, me thinks she did a fine job. Meez gunna go muddin’ now, so hope you all have a pawsum weekend. And weez joinin’ Athena today fur da Caturday Art blog hop.
Have you or your humans ever made you sumfin’ from a cardboard box?
