Blest Sunday: Gizzy’s Coming To Dinner

Hey Raena, hurry up. We gotta write our Blest Sunday posty and get ready. 

 

 Dezi and Raena sit on shower benches in bathroom

 

 

          What lit a fire under your bloomers, sissy? And what are we getting’ ready fur?

 

Dezi lays atop the cat tree

Me will just lay here and watch fur Gizzy.

 

 

(Excitedly Dezi meows) Oh Raena, we be the blestest kitties ever. We’re havin’ visitors today. One of me and sis Lexi’s furstest ever awnties and uncles are comin’ here to our ‘pawrtment, to see us!!! And guess what else? They’re bringin’ one of our furstest furiends, Gizmo. We like to call him Gizzy. He’s a sweet tuxie boy that has diabetes. Me just can’t even believe they’re comin’ all the way from Arizona to see us. 

 

          Really sissy? OMC I’s can’t hardly wait!!! We’re gonna have so much fun. Ya’ reckon we can all go fur a stroll? Or maybe we can all play on the cat tree. You are gonna come out and visit with Gizzy, right sissy? 

 

(Flabbergasted, Dezi meows) What?! Of course me’s gonna come out and visit with ‘em. 

 

 Raena lays on floor

 

 

          Hmmpht  We’ll see. Anyways, as we do every Blest Sunday, we’d like to remind all of you to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. As most of you know, our car’s been broke, the wheelchair’s broke, and we didn’t have innernet access fur a bit, so we’re way behind on our visitin’. We purromise we’ll be ‘round as soon as we can. Mommy’s just been a little overwhelmed with all that’s goin’ on and she’s not very good at helpin’ us with catputer stuffs when that happens. But, we are so grateful fur all of you. Fanky fank you all fur bein’ our furiends and understandin’. 

 

Don’t furget Raena, we’re joinin’ the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies.

 

Till the next time………………………………………Be Blest!!!

Blest Sunday: Emergency Preparedness and Prayers

Hey Raena, do you know what day it is?

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

 

          Sure I’s do sissy. It’s time fur our Blest Sunday posty. You know what we haven’t done in a while? 

 

What’s that Raena?

 

Dezi and Raena in a photo frame welcoming friends

 

 

 

          We’ve not welcomed all our new furiends. Ya’ know, we say ifin ya’ come by once, you’re a visitor, ifin ya’ come back again, you’re family.

 

That’s right Raena. We’re so happy to have so many pawsum furiends. Me’s sis Lexi always said we had the bestest furiends in the universe. And, me’s sis Lexi was hardly ever wrong. 

 

          I’s sure wish I’s could’a met her sissy.

 

Dezi atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

You would’a liked her Raena. But, ifin she was still here, you wouldn’t be. Mommy says things work out the way they’re s’posed too. We might not unnerstand why things happen the way they do, but, God has a plan fur everythin’ and we just have to believe He’ll take care of us. 

 

 

Raena lays on the back of the chair

 

 

          Like all those hurricanes, sissy? I’s sure don’t unnerstand why they have to happen. We’ve got so many furiends bein’ affected by ‘em. I’s really worried ‘bout their safety. 

 

Me too Raena, but all we can do is purray fur them. Fankfully, there are lots of peeps comin’ together to help out. You know, we saw a lot of those helpers last night on the chatter box.

 

          I’s was so happy to see all those peeps reunited with their furry furmily members. And, to learn that the laws were changed so that anipals had to be included in all rescue effurts. Peeps are furinally startin’ to unnerstand just how ‘purrtant us anipals are to our humans. I’s know mommy would never go off to save herself and leave us behind. And now, the law’s on her side and she wouldn’t have too. 

 

Dezi lays on chair

 

Yeah Raena, me’s happy ‘bout that too. So offen in the past, anipals have had to fend fur themselves, cuz rescuers and shelters didn’t allow anipals to accompany their humans durin’ disasters of any kind. Even tho’ anipals can now accompany their humans, steps should still be taken to make sure we could be reunited in the event we were to get separated.

 

 

          Like our microchips, sissy? Ya’ know, I’s wasn’t crazy ‘bout gettin’ that thing to begin with. But, ifin it helps to make sure I’s will always be with mommy, I’s glad I’s got it. 

 

 Dezi bathes atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

Yep Raena, our microchips are a purrfect way to identify us and help make sure that we’ll always be with mommy. But, the microchip alone won’t work ifin ya’ don’t keep the infurmation updated with the chippin’ company. Our chips are registered with Petlinks. Mommy checks our infurmation at least a few times a year. Since not too much changes ‘round here, that’s all she needs too. But, ifin we were to move, change our noms, require meds, or change VETs or anythin’ else, mommy would need to update our profiles’ to reflect those changes. Could you ‘magine us bein’ separated from mommy and not gettin’ the food we’re used too? As ifin bein’ scared wouldn’t be bad enuff, but then, we might not even eat cuz the food would be wrong.

 

 Raena lays in mommy's lap

 

 

          Not that we’d eat anyways, but it’s a good idea, just in case. It’s also a good idea, to have copies of our chip nummers, mommy’s fone nummer and VET records in an emergency bag in the event we had to evacuate or somethin’. And, our peeps should also make sure to keep some fresh noms and bottled water, food and water bowls, a first aid kit, any meds or supplements we might need, leashes, harnesses/collars, some litter, a small box, a comfurt blanky or nip mat and maybe even a toy or two should also be in our emergency bag. You can check out our post here fur a list of things you should have in the event of an emergency.

 

 Dezi with bowed head praying on the pet steps

 

 

Those are some great suggestions Raena. We are so fankful that mommy’s purrpared. While it’s unlikely we’ll be hit by a hurricane, we are subject to tornadoes, wild fires and even earthquakes. We’ve heard from many of our furiends in the path of the current hurricanes, and we’re so happy that they are all still together. But, there are many peeps and anipals that aren’t. We’re purrayin’ fur all those in need. We’re very blest to not be facin’ these storms ourselves and to be home safe and sound with our mommy. We are also blest to have so many amazin’ furiends. We’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives and to say a little purrayer fur all those in need.

          We’d also like to remind everypawdy that wants to help to check out the many ways you can by clickin’ the links here. We’re joinin’ the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and sendin’ lots of hugs to all of you. Fanky fank ya’ fur bein’ our furiends. Purrlease, stay safe and ifin you’re in the path of a storm, keep in touch so we can all know how to purray and/or help. And join us tomorrow fur another Service Cat Monday posty. 

 

Till the next time………………………………………..Be Blest!!!

Blest Sunday: Living the Life

Hey Raena, hurry, we need to write our Blest Sunday posty.

 

Raena lounges on perch and watches the rain out the front door

 

          I’s comin’ sissy, I’s was watchin’ a squirrel out the door. Did you see him come up to the door and taunt me? He threw a rock at me.

 

 Dezi looks outside from the cat tree

 

 

Yeah, me saw him Raena, but that wasn’t a rock. It sounded like a rock, but it was really one of those nuts from those trees outside. 

 

Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

          Rock, nut, either way, he was makin’ fun of me. He should be real careful ‘bout doin’ that. After all, I’s the mighty huntress of buffalo and giraffes and monkeys.

 

 Raena gets close to the TV

 

 

Sure you are Raena, sure you are. Me bets that squirrel is shakin’ in his fur. Anyways, we need to fank all our furiends fur purrayin’ fur us. You know how sick we were the week befur last. Mommy was even considerin’ takin’ us to the house of horrors VET. Neither of us wanted any pawrt of that. But, me does have to say, me felt so bad, me was actually thinkin’ that mommy was right and we needed to see somepawdy ‘bout our purroblem. Fankfully, all our furiends banded together to purray fur us, and we started feelin’ better right away.

 

          We sure did, sissy. I’s sooooooooooooo glad our tummy rumbles are gone and we’re back to normal again. I’s also glad mommy gave you one last bath. you really smelled bad. 

 

Hey, Grrrrrrrrr  That’s not very nice. 

 

 

          It may not be nice sissy, but it’s the truth. Mommy says we both stank and needed a good bath. I’s felt lots better after mine’s bath. And, mine’s fur looked so purretty and floofy. You know, us girly’s gotta take care of ourselves. A little purrimpin’ and purreenin’ never hurt anykitty. 

 

 Dezi lays on the bed

 

 

Yeah Raena, me felt better after me’s bath too. And, after rollin’ ‘round on mommy and the purrfumed sweet smellin’ sheets, we smelled like girls again. 

 

          Meowin’ of feelin’ better, mommy’s feelin’ better too sissy. Her gums are still healin’, but she’s feelin’ so much better. And, she’s getting’ better with those new teethies. She’s graduated from smashed taters to baked taters and other soft like foods like pasta.

 

 Gift box with cheez-it, bread, pb crakers, and pasta sauce

 

 

Yep Raena, and she was some kind’a x’cited when she received a couple boxes this week from one of our Angels. You know how much mommy likes Cheez-its and M & M’s. Mommy was so x’cited she couldn’t wait to try out her new teethies on those Cheez-it crackers.

 

 Sharp Cheddar Cheese gift

 

 

          Did you see the cooler box sissy? It had real live sharp cheddar cheese in it. I’s sure hope mommy gives me a bite. And I’s don’t know who’s more x’cited ‘bout the Apple Zings, you or mommy?. Mommy said she couldn’t wait till she could eat cold cereal again. 

 

 Apple Zings gift

 

 

Yeah Raena, me likes those Apple Zings too. They’re so much fun to bat ‘round the house. And every once in a while mommy will drop one that’s all soft and full of milk. Since us kitties are lactose intolerant, we don’t get much milk ‘round here. So, a squishy Apple Zing is a really nice treat. 

 

Large bag of M & M's

 

          Really? in that case, I’s can’t wait to try ‘em. Fanky fank you sweet Angels, we really do purreciate ya’ll sendin’ mommy some yummy noms. Mommy’s cookin’ up that turkey tom lurkey today, and she plans to make some sammiches with that pawsum bread. And I’s can’t wait fur her to eat some of those peanut butter crackers. I’s sure do like peanut butter. 

 

 Turkey Breast

 

 

Me too Raena. Turkey tom lurkey and peanut butter…what a life. We are such blest kitties. And mommy says we have another surpurrise comin’ our way in a couple weeks. Me can’t wait to see what it is.

 

          Another surpurrise? When did you hear that sissy? What do ya’ reckon it is? 

 

 Dezi lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

Ifin me knew Raena, it wouldn’t be a surpurrise. Just know that it’s gotta be good cuz mommy’s x’cited and said we gotta clean house. We are so fankful fur all our furiends. Ya’ll are just the bestest. As always, we wanna remind you to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. 

 

 Raena sits in amazon box

 

 

          Hey sissy, this weekend is a long one, cuz of a holiday. We also wanna remind everypawdy to be safe and don’t drink and drive. And ‘member, us anipals don’t always enjoy human celebrations. So, ifin you’re hostin’ a pawrty, make sure we have a quiet place to get away from all the commotion and festivities.

 

Good job Raena. Now, let’s link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and go play.

 

Till the next time……………………………………….Be Blest!!!

Blest Sunday: Purrayer Changes Things

Raena, STOP!!! Don’t Touch Me!!! Me doesn’t feel good. 

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

          So, I’s don’t feel so good mine’s self.

  

 Dezi watches Raena atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

Then stop it and let’s just lay down and have some quiet time.

 

          But sissy, mommy says ifin ya’ don’t feel good, you should keep doin’ your normal stuffs and it’ll help make ya’ feel better. And ‘sides, mommy’s been layin’ hands on us and purrayin’ over us a lot. 

 

Yep Raena, we’re blest to have a mommy who luvs us so much. Bet me’s tummy and hiney-bo still hurts. 

 

          Why do ya’ reckon we’re sick sissy? 

 

 Dezi sniffs the Yeowww nip toys

 

 

How should me know Raena. Does me look like the all seein’ eye or somethin’? 

 

          What’s an all seein’ eye sissy?

 

 

It’s just a…Oh, never mind. Mommy’s looked all over the house and checked everythin’ we could have pawssibly eaten over the last week, or gotten into, and can’t find anythin’ that should have caused us both to get the runny runs. Least not this bad. Me’s so tired of havin’ me’s bloomers cleaned. Me could go the rest of me’s life and never miss that. 

 

 Raena lays on chair back

 

 

          You sure do sound mean when mommy’s helpin’ ya’ get that stinky runny stuffs off your furs sissy. I’s never heard such growlin’ and hissin’ in all mine’s life. I’s don’t think you’ve ever hissed at me quite that bad. 

 

Well, it hurts. Me’s hiney-bo is so sore that even the Charmin feels like sandpaper. Me just hopes all this stops soon or mommy’ll be packin’ us off to the VET. 

 

 Raena lays on the floor and looks at the camera

 

 

          The VET!!! No Way!!! I’s never wanna go back there again!!! Ya’ know what sissy? I’s bet ifin we were to ask all our amazin’ furiends to join mommy in purrayin’ fur us, we’d be feelin’ better in no time. 

 

Me bets you’re right Raena. We have the mostest pawsumest furiends in the universe. They luv and care ‘bout us enuff that me’s sure they’d purray fur us. Mommy says fankfully, we’re still eatin’ and drinkin’ normally, and while we might not be up to zoomin’ thru the house, we’re still actin’ a bit playful. She’s not seen any parasites on us or in our litterbox depawsits, so she can only deduce that somethin’ has really upset our tummy tum tums. ‘Specially since both of us are havin’ the same issues. 

 

 Raena lays in mommy's lap for some lap loving time

 

 

          That’s true sissy. But, I’s just know we’re gonna feel better soon. When we woke up today mr. sunshine was smilin’ down on us and the weather’s startin’ to cool off a bit. With our furiends joinin’ mommy in purrayer, we can only get better.

 

 Dezi lays in chair and looks pretty

 

 

Me believes ya’ Raena. Each day is a blessing even when we’re a little under the weather. We’re so blest to have a luvvin’ mommy, great furiends, an amazin’ furever home and yummy noms. We wanna remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. Even when you feel like you’re livin’ under a rain cloud in the dark, you are blest. 

 

 

 Dezi rolls around on the Yeowww nip heart

 

 

          So true sissy. Every breath we take is a blessing. Now, let’s try to pose fur selfie or two so we can link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. And, maybe you’ll feel up to playin’ fur a bit? Wha’d’ya’ say sissy, wanna go play with our Yeaowww nip toys?

  

Till the next time…………………………………………….Be Blest!!!

Blest Sunday: Rain Dancing & Blessings

Mmrrrrr Hiss, Stop it Raena, it’s time fur Blest Sunday.

 

 Dezi looks up at Raena atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

          C’mon sissy, I’s just wanna play. Meowin’ of blessings, look ‘round. We’re so blest to have so much to play with.

 

We are Raena. But, you know blessings aren’t all ‘bout the material things.

 

Raena plays with remote mouse

 

 

          ‘Course I’s know that sissy, but still, it’s nice to have ‘em. But, I’s also know that we’re blest to have such a pawsum mommy. Did we not have fun this weekend? Even tho’ mommy woke up feelin’ sicker than a dog, she made time fur us. 

 

 Dezi walks outside in her harness on a leash

 

 

Yep Raena, she sure did. We had asked ifin she would take us fur a stroll but mommy did even better. Well, sort of. Me got all harnessed up, and thinkin’ me was goin’ fur a stroll furst, me went straight over to the stroller. To me’s sur-purrise, mommy snatched me up in her arms and took me outside. She even let me touch me’s paws to the grass. We were lolly-gaggin’ (wastin’ time) ‘round when all of a sudden mommy realized she had left the camera in the house. Did you know we could hear you meowin’ at the door all the way on the other side of the ‘pawrtment complex?

  

          I’s wanted to be with you and mommy sissy. What did you x’pect me to do, wait mine’s turn patiently?

 

Kittens Raena, you could see us every minute. Anyways, realizin’ we didn’t have the camera, but seein’ that me was really enjoyin’ the great outdoors, mommy said, “It’s okay Dezi, we don’t have to have photos of everythin’, all the time.” So, we just kept walkin’ ‘round. Till that is, mommy got tired of hearin’ you mewin’ at the door like a little lost kitten. 

 

 Raena walks towards the woods on her harness

 

 

          Well sissy, I’s figgered ya’ll had been out there purrlenty long enuff that surely it was mine’s turn. I’s couldn’t wait to get outside and put mine’s paws on the grass. We even stopped off at the mailboxes to check the mail. And, that’s when it happened. Mine’s nice long leisurely stroll got cut short. In mere seconds the birds stopped singin’ and the skies turned black as night. The heavens opened up and let the flood waters fall. Oh MeOW, I’s headed straight fur the pawrkin’ lot to dance in the rain. Mommy was yellin’ somethin’ I’s couldn’t quite make out thru all the noise of the storm. And then, befur I’s could get mine’s paw in the puddle on the sidewalk, mommy snatched me up and took off runnin’ towards our ‘pawrtment.

 

 Dezi looks outside from the cat tree

 

 

Yep Raena, ya’ll looked so funny. Mommy can’t actually run to save her life, so ya’ll were doin’ more like a quick hobble. Mommy’s head was lookin’ down as much as she can bend her head, and you were starin’ straight up pawin’ at the air.

 

          Oh sissy, it was so much fun. Till we got back inside that is. I’s was soaked. All mine’s fur was wet. It took hours fur me to dry off. And, you were no help, hidin’ out unner the bed. 

 

How many times does me have to tell ya’, Me’s Not HIDIN’, me’s purrtectin’ mommy and you from spiders and other creepy crawlers.

 

 Raena eats treats on cat tree

 

 

          Yeah, sure. Whatever you say sissy. I’s just happy we got some special time with mommy. We are indeed blest.

 

We most certainly are Raena. And, one of our angels sent some green papers fur mommy to get somethin’ special fur all of us. We sure did purreciate it. We’ll tell ya’ all ‘bout that shoppin’ trip later.

 

          Hey sissy, did you see the card mommy got from another bloggin’ angel? She had been blest by somepawdy and wanted to pass it along. We furgot to ask ‘bout name droppin’, but she knows who she is, and we’re sendin’ fanky fanks and hugs your way. 

 

 Dezi lays on cat tree and looks down

 

 

We have the bestest furiends in the universe Raena. Fank you all fur bein’ our furiends and pawrt of our furmily. We’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. Each new day brings new blessings ifin we’ll just stop and see ‘em. We’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies too. C’mon Raena, let’s go play. 

 

Till the next time………………………………………..Be Blest!!!
