Well here we are on another luvvly blest Sunday. You know it’s felt more like winter time this past week than spring; but dat’s made fur a lot of good snuggle days with mommy. Me did kinda fureak out a bit durin’ da storms, but mostly me just hung out with mommy. Me luvs her so much.
When me last left ya’ me was headin’ off to cat scouts fur our 4th Quest and we was havin’ some really severe storms at home. Our innernet modem kept flashin’ and knockin’ us off da catputer. Mommy shut it down and sed it was too dangerous to try to be online. Me was finally able to purrticipate in some of da quest tho’ so me didn’t let me’s patrol down too much. We’ll be hikin’ out today and wrappin’ up yet another quest. We have a new feature called chat dat allows us to do just dat in real time. Of course you all know da quests and events are virtual, but da furiendships are real as real can be.
Anyways, dat’s enuff of a plug fur scouts. We’s still lookin’ fur me’s new sisfur and helper. Me sure hopes she gets here soon. Me can’t wait to share Dougie da Betta, and da duties with her. MOL Mommy sez me will have to share da cat trees and toys with her too. Hmmmmmm Me hadn’t thought ‘bout dat. Ya’ know what tho’? Me is so blest to have such a wunnerful luvvin’ mommy and so many pawsum uncles and awnties and furiends dat me will be happy to share it all with her.
We’s wrappin’ up Buddy’s 30 day nom challenge this week and we’ll be tellin’ ya’ more ‘bout dat Wednesday. And guess what? Mr. W actually asked mommy to check on da cost of da noms cuz he likes how Buddy’s been doin’ on them. You’ll have to wait and see ifin he decided to order them. Paws crossed he does, right?
Me told you dat sis Lexi was back home but we hadn’t posted any fotos. Da urn wasn’t zactly what mommy had ‘spected and she just kuldn’t quite bring herself to take fotos. But last week me’s sweet furiend Cat and awnty Lisa sent us da mostest bootyful restin’ place ever. Sis Lexi had what mommy called her signature pose, and this urn looks just like dat. Yeah you know mommy had to have a big ole cry. But we are so grateful to have it. Mommy’s gunna keep her on hers desk so Lexi can always be close. Check it out below.
Well dat ‘bout wraps it up. As always we are blest. Take a minute everyday and give thanks fur da blessings in your life. As long as you are breathin’, you are blest! Mommy and me luv you all very much and send purrayers everyday thankin’ God fur each of you and askin’ Him to bless you and your families. And we wanna say thank you fur bein’ our furiends and family. Me almost furgot. Me’s joinin’ da Kitties Blue fur da Sunday Selfies.

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?
Till da next time……………………………………..Be Blest!!!

Well what a weekend. We missed our Blest Sunday posty mostly cuz of mommy’s finger issue which is getting’ lots better. She was finally able to file da jagged skin so it dusn’t get caught on things and hurt more. Another reason we didn’t post was cuz we’re workin’ on sumfin’ special fur Christmas and didn’t wanna overdo this week.
We also got a kupple more packages in da mail from meez fellow Cat Scouts. They are such a pawsum gwoup of cats and peeps. Ifin you have been wantin’ to join and just haven’t yet, what are you waitin’ fur? It’s a gweat place to gather wiff other cats and cat pawrents fur fun, adventure and learning. We got a package from awnty Ellen, Sammy P and da kitties of 15 and meowing dat mommy wuldn’t let us see just yet and it included sumfin’ fur mommy. Fank you soooooo much fur includin’ us in yous holiday givin’.
And then mommy opened a big ole box from Cat and awnty Lisa. Me kept twyin’ to check out da contents in dat box, but mommy sed it was fur Christmas. And they included a gift bag full of fings fur mommy. Fank you bunches and bunches and bunches. Cat and awnty Lisa have done a lot fur sis Lexi durin’ da year and now they’re sharin’ their Christmas wiff us. Mommy sez you hit a home run and dat weez gunna luv everythin’.
So needless to say, tween these packages and da ones we got earlier in da week, mommy had da leaky eyes big time. They was da happy kind but salty tears none da less. And just when we fawt mommy was all cried out, another of meez fellow scouts sent us a email and sed they had sent us a little sumfin’ sumfin’ dat shuld be here today. We are so Blest!!!
You know times are tuff all over and this year has been a real strain fur us with both sissy and me needin’ da extra VET care and special type noms so we really weren’t spectin’ to have a Christmas with purresents. Sum of you already know dat afur we got into social media, mommy wuld take da lesser played wiff toys from our toy box and put them in our stockings fur Christmas and she wuld buy a can of special noms fur us to eat. Because we recently changed foods and da new ones are so spensive, there wasn’t gunna be a special can of noms this year. But you know what? We feel so blest to have each other and all of you. And after all isn’t luv what it’s all about? Let me tell ya’, in dat department we are overflowin’. And now meez furiends have purrvided da purresents. We al have da leaky eyes round here. We are so gwateful to have so many pawsum furiends.

Sabertooth ya’ say? Me knows what you’re thinkin’. You’re thinkin’, but sabertooth tigers are extinct right? Well they’re not. There’s quite a lot of Sabertooths’ in cat scouts and guess who be da newest? Dat’s right, it’s me!!! We had our fall purrmotion ceremony at cat scouts yesfurday and me was purrmoted to da highest rank, Sabertooth. Now me wasn’t purrmoted alone tho’. Guess who else made da cut? You know how me told y’all dat Timmy Tomcat is da reason me has a blog and even joined cat scouts in da furst place. You know me kinda cyber stalked him when we was tryin’ to learn ‘bout da innernet. It’s okay tho’, he knows and has been really helpful, and he and hims daddy has been great teachers. Anyways, we was both purrmoted to da rank of Sabertooth last night. Me was so excited me kuld barely contain meself. Maggie, Felix and Timmy’s brofur Einstein also got purrmoted to da rank of Cougar. And there was lots of mentions fur such pawsum Service to our new Cat Scout University staff, and scouts Raz and Allies’ mommy who be da new Den Mother. Speakin’ of Timmy, one of hims brofurs has been a little unner da wevver so ifin you can spare a few purrayers fur da furmily dat wuld be pawsum.
Cat Scouts is growin’ by leaps and bounds these days and with da new Cat Scout University it’s so easy fur a new scout to learn da ropes. We have da big Cardwood Derby comin’ up soon; so ifin you wanna show off your DIY skills and make your own car, better get signed up quick. Now as meez told ya’ afur mommy’s not all dat talented when it comes to DIY stuff. And as you know weez not have a lot of money so mommy looked round and found this really cool hot rod cardboard scratcher dat she thought wuld make a great car fur me fur da derby.
She pawlitely wrote da folks and asked ifin we kuld get one to review. It was a long shot, but you never know till you ask right? We heard nuffin’ back from them and dat was okay, cuz by this time mommy had read da instructions and found dat me has to “make” meez car, not buy it (or get it fur free eever). MOL So mommy put back a box dat we got to start workin’ on it next month. And then lo and behold, we received dat pawsum hot rod delivered by da UPS man this past week. MOL Dat’s okay tho’ it’s a great little car and we’ll be showin’ it to you soon. Turns out no review is required on meez bloggy just on da shoppin’ site. But it’s so cool we fink you all might like to see it.
We also received another pawsum scratcher from GoPets on amazon. They’ve got some really great stuff you might wanna check out fur Christmas. We luv da scratcher, but had no idea dat mommy also got a pair of claw clippers from them. Me doesn’t know how she kuld pawssibly think they wuld make a great Christmas gift. Me just hate claw trimmin’ day. But mommy sez these clippers are really amazin’. And let me tell ya’ they be sharp too. They sure made quick work of meez claws. Me only got in one scratch afur mommy was thru. MOL Mommy sez me be too sweet to be actin’ like dat, but me just hates getting’ meez claws clipped more than anythin’ else in da world. And no, it’s not cuz she’s hurt me or cut too close, meez hated it from da furst time. Anyways, GoPets only askd fur a mention on meez bloggy in exchange fur these pawsum items and so there ya’ have it. But we really do think any of da items they have wuld make a great Christmas purresent.
We have been so blest. But you all know us. We think da biggest blessings of all is da luv and furiendships we have found. Member to take a minute and just be thankful fur all da blessings in your life. It’s cooled off considerably here and we’re havin’ lots of storms and gray days dat look like night so mommy has slowed down a lot. We’ll be takin’ most of da day off today cuz we haven’t got our tree up yet and mommy purromissed it wuld happen this weekend. Rest assured we will get by to visit with you all soon. And don’t furget to come by tomorrow, cuz mommy has a real special treat to share with you all. We just know you’re gunna luv it as much as we do. And me almost furgot, weez joinin’ our Kitties Blue furiends fur da Sunday Selfies.
Till da next time……………………………………Be Blest!!!
