Blest Sunday: All About Cats Interview & Summer Camp

MeOW Everypawdy, it’s me, Deztinee. Me’s furinally thru with Cat Scouts Summer Camp, and just in time too. 

 

 Dezi and Raena lay together on the floor

 

          Sure ‘nuff sissy. Mommy might’a killed me this meownin’ ifin not fur you. 

 

Now Raena, you know mommy wouldn’t hurt you, and fur sure she wouldn’t kill ya’. 

 

          Well you sure didn’t sound so sure of that this meownin’ when you were mewin’ that squeaky mew with me while mommy had me shoved in the bathroom sink.

 

 Dezi lays atop the liberty cat tree

 

Well Raena, me knew mommy wouldn’t purr-pussly hurt you, but you sure were upset. Me just wanted to make sure you knew that me was on your side. Me doesn’t enjoy bloomer cleanin’ either, but sometimes it’s gotta be done. And better mommy with a nice soft wash cloth than our tongues. Since we started eatin’ the fureeze dried raw foods there’s not been much bloomer cleanin’ needed. But, mommy’s always at the ready just in case. And fank the cats she is, cuz you fur sure stunk. Just an FYI, in the future ifin that happens, you shouldn’t scoot on the floor. That just gets stinky everywhere and takes longer to clean up. 

 

 Dezi looks at Raena at the top of the Liberty cat tree

 

          Well sissy, I’s was just tryin’ to get it off. I’s knew it stank, and I’s fur sure wasn’t cleanin’ that mess mine’s self. As much as I’s didn’t enjoy the clean up, we are very blest to have a mommy that cares so much ‘bout us. Anyways, enuff ‘bout that. We wanna hear all ‘bout summer camp.

 

Dezi, Cat and Aetheling prepare to board Cat Scouts bus

 

Oh yeah, summer camp. Well Raena, this is the longest event we’ve ever had at Cat Scouts. We started out at Cat Scouts headquarters and took a bus to Yosemite. We had to purrove ourselves worthy to even go, by tyin’ a bow line knot and havin’ our pawrents sign a purrmission slip. Me took me’s guitar along so we could have some sing alongs ‘round the campfire at night. Our furst day there was mostly spent settin’ up camp. We had a snipe hunt that night fur all the new scouts and just hung ‘round the campfire.

 

Dezi and other scouts on the bus

This is a really nice bus.

 

 

Dezi the hiker atop Half Dome

 

On the second day, we hiked up somethin’ called Half Dome. It was quite the adventure, but we all made it to the top. and the view from up there was amazin’.

 

 Dezi wearing home made garrison cap

 

The next day, we got instructions fur our furst craft purroject, makin’ a garrison cap. Fank the cats, mommy had taught me to sew. Me had a pair of mommy’s khaki pants to cut up and make me’s cap out of. And mommy had saved a ribbon that came tied to one of our Christmas purresents that me used fur the pipin’. To get credit fur our cap, we had to actually wear it. Me has a large round Ragdoll head, so me’s cap was a little small and me had to have help keepin’ it on me’s head. But me wore it long enuff to get the credit.

 

 Dezi swimming in lake

 

The next day we had swimmin’ lessons and a cheerleadin’ competition. Since we spend so much time in the water helpin’ mommy with her showers, me did great with the lake swimmin’.

 

 Infinity scarf

 

And then on Wednesday, we had a second craft purroject. Me made mommy an infinity scarf out of a t-shirt and some tie dye paints. Mommy never was one fur t-shirts, so me had no ‘sperience with that tie dyin’ stuffs, but me tried anyways. Like mommy, me’s talents lie elsewhere. Me’s not very crafty. Anyways, we then went on a nature hike to take in some bird watchin’.

 

Dezi the bird watcher

 

 

 Dezi plays guitar with scouts around the campfire

 

 

The next day was spent mostly workin’ on our craft purrojects. That night we had a s’mores competition ‘round the campfire. And me pulled out the guitar fur some campfire singin’. The next day we gathered fur a poetry workshop and we all had to write 3 poems. That night we had the Knowledge bowl. Me’s patrol won last year, but this year we purrticipated as individuals ‘stead of patrols. And then, Den Master announced the inductees fur the Order of the Arrowhead. Me was passed over fur the fourth time in a row. At that point, me wanted to come home. But mommy reminded me, that we’re not quitters, so me stuck ‘round fur the end of camp and the purrmotion ceremony. Lots of scouts were purrmoted up in rank. So, all in all, camp was fun. Me’s very blest to have a mommy who luvs me enuff to help me enjoy these grand adventures. Virtually of course. Mommy would never let me actually go away fur a week…not even a day.

          You’re so right sissy. We are blest to have such a luvvin’ mommy. Glad you had a good time at camp, but I’s also glad it’s over. We’re also blest to have such pawsum furiends. Cat Scouts is a small community made up of kitties whose peeps adore them. I’s also have some other great news sissy. As you know, we were innerviewed by All About Cats and added to their list of Top Cat Blogs.

 

 Dezi lays in a sunny meadow

Watching The Chatter Box & Passing The Time

Hey is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. It’s furinally Furiday, and guess what? It’s stormin’ here again. Yep, it rolled in last night and looks like it’s gonna stay ‘round thru most of next week. As ya’ know, sis Dezi is still off at (virtual) Cat Scouts summer camp. Well, she must’ve found some where that had innernet service cuz she sent an email last night and wanted to come home. Seems she’s been passed over fur the highest purrmotion fur the fourth time and feels like they don’t want her anymore. Of course mommy told her she could come home, but that ifin she did, she would be sendin’ a message that she was a quitter. And, we ain’t no quitters, mommy said. Mommy told her to put on a smile and kill ‘em with kindness. Somethin’ ‘bout ketchin’ more bees with honey or somethin’ like that. Mommy reminded her that she was a Southern Belle and as such, she had a duty to be pawlite and sweet, no matter what. 

 

 Dezi in her Sabertooth Cat Scout uniform

Me’s never gonna be anythin’ but a Sabertooth.

 

I’s couldn’t care less ‘bout all that, I’s ready fur sissy to come home. Ya’ know, keepin’ up with the bloggy all by mine’s self is a lot of work. And besides, I’s don’t want anypawdy pickin’ on mine’s sissy…that’s mine’s job. MOL  Hey, did ya’ll know they have movies on that chatter box with kitties in ‘em? Sure ‘nuff. I’s was watchin’ one the other day, and there was this big kitty that kept chuffin’ at me. She sure seemed worried. I’s kept tryin’ to tell her I’s was right here, but she just kept chuffin’.

 

Raena watches and talks to a lion on tv

I’s right here kitty. Why can’t you hear me?

 

And then, she tried to get me to help her take down a behemouth of a beast. Somethin’ ‘bout bein’ a ketcher?. I’s don’t know why she’d want li’l ol me to be a ketcher. You should’a seen the size of that thing. Do any of you kitties watch the chatter box?

 

 Raena watches a lion on tv

Are you crazy? I’s not ketchin’ that thing, it’s Huuuuuuge!!!!

 

And hey, did ya’ll know mine’s mommy can sew? I’s never seen anythin’ like that machine she calls a sewin’ machine. I’s always knew there was a table beside the counters but I’s had no idea what was under all that clutter. Yep, mommy had some clutter. She says it isn’t clutter it’s shoppin’ bags, but hey, ifin ya’ don’t do any shoppin’ and ya’ never use those bags, they’re clutter. Right? Anyways, sis Dezi needed a hat fur summer camp, so mommy moved all those shoppin’ bags and voila, a sewin’ machine appeared. Now that was cool. Right up till the minute mommy broke the needle. Then, it was all, arms wavin’ in the air and yellin’ “danger, danger, get away, stay back.” Fankfully, she was able to get all the pieces up and change out that needle in time to get sissy’s hat made. I’s can’t wait to see what she makes next.

 

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

I’s’ll just watch the rain and wait fur sissy.

 

Well, guess I’s better run. I’s hear thunder rumblin’ thru again. Fank the cats, sissy will be back home soon to tell us all ‘bout summer camp. I’s know ya’ll wanna know how it went and hear all ‘bout her adventures there. We’ll be ‘round to visit ‘tween storms, so ya’ll stay safe now, ya’ hear?.

 

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

A Letter From Summer Camp

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. What a day we’ve had, and it ain’t even noon. ‘Course by the time you read this it’ll purrobably be long past. Don’t tell sis Dezi I’s ran so late with our posty, K?.  As ya’ know, she’s off at Cat Scouts summer camp (virtually of course, she’s really right here) havin’ a great time. While mommy and me are here dealin’ with the normals of every day livin’.

 

 Raena checks out her toys while stacked up

Don’t furget to put da toys back down when you finish cleanin’, mommy.

 

 

We had a big cleanin’ pawrty yesfurday to get ready fur our monthly inspection today. The lawn crew’s back, even tho’ they were just here on Furiday, and the exterminator is here today too. But, mommy can’t breathe, so we’re just gonna spray our ‘pawrtment ourselves. The stuff mommy uses works better anyways. It’s not nearly as watered down. And, we’ve got a ‘pointment with a repair man that we’ll be tellin’ ya’ ‘bout on Sevice Cat Monday. Like I’s said, busy, busy, busy and it ain’t even lunch time yet. Meowin’ ‘bout lunch time, what does that even mean? We get brekky and dinner here. I’s need to ask mommy why we’re not getting’ a lunch too.? Meowin’ of dinner, mommy took her furst bite last night. Sure nuff, she made a baked tater ‘stead of smashed taters and was able to actually bite and chew. That’s a good thing. She said it felt funny, but she’s glad to be able to start doin’ things normally again. She ain’t ready fur no chips or crackers yet, but she’s getting’ there. And, we got a letter from sissy from camp. 

 

 Dezi and Cat on the Muffler Man

Check out me and me’s furiend Cat. We climbed up on

the Muffler Man at a stop on the way to camp.

 

 

          Dear Mommy and Raena,

               Me doesn’t have a lot of spare time, but me did wanna drop ya’ll a line and let ya’ know, me’s okay and havin’ a great time. Me’s makin’ a Garrison cap fur me and a surpurrise fur you mommy. Good thing you taught me to sew mommy. Fanks. Me misses ya’ll somethin’ fierce, but it has been kind’a nice havin’ a bed all to meself this week. Me can’t wait to tell ya’ll all ‘bout summer camp when me gets home. Fanks fur the care box, me luvved everythin’, ‘specially the new nip nanner. Raena, you take good care of mommy, and me will see ya’ll soon. Yes, Raena, me will bring you a supurrise back too.

All me’s luv,

Dezi 

Raena sleeps on the floor

 

Oh sissy, we miss you too. And everypawdy can’t wait to hear all ‘bout camp when you get home. (Raena looks out the door and see the manager and exterminator walking up the walk) Well, I’s see the manager, so I’s guess I’s better get off here now. Cuz we don’t post on Tuesdays, we missed International Cat Day. Not to worry tho’, we may not have posted anythin’, but we are always treated like queens. Mommy says every day is Cat Day at our house. We got extra treats and some new noms that we’ll be meowin’ ‘bout later. I’s gotta run, you all have a pawsum day.

 

Ifin there was a real camp fur kitties, would you send your kitty off fur a week?

Do You think your kitty would enjoy a real camp?

Chatting Cats: Off To Summer Camp Cat Scouts Style

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. And, it’s furinally Furiday!!! Woo MeOWWWwww You all know we drink outta fountains, right? Well, we have one on the bathroom vanity. It’s been there since I’s came here. I’s ‘member when I’s was a teeny little girly and would look way up there and watch sis Dezi lappin’ up that furesh water. It looked so tasty. I’s couldn’t wait fur the day when I’s was furinally big enuff to get up there and have a drinky fur mineself. Well, I’s didn’t have to wait too long. As ya’ll know, I’s growin’ like a weed. Least, that’s what mommy says. Anyways, I’s been enjoyin’ that fountain fur quite some time now. But, last night I jumped up there to get a drink and found one of mommy’s coffee cups sittin’ right beside it. Have ya’ heard that sayin’ ‘bout curiosity and the cat? Well, I’s don’t believe it’ll kill me, but I’s sure am a curious girly. So, I’s had to check out why mommy would be leavin’ her coffee in the bathroom. After all, she never drinks in that room, ‘specially not coffee. I’s looked down into that cup and…OMC  that wasn’t mommy’s coffee, there was teethies in that there cup.

 

Dezi atop the Liberty cat tree

 

          RaenaBelle, what in the world are you meowin’ ‘bout now?

 

 Raena lays on chair back

 

Mommy’s teethies. Did you see ‘em? They were just floatin’ there in that coffee cup.

 

          Yeah, me saw ‘em. Mommy says that’s the way she’s s’posed to brush her teethies these days. But me doesn’t think you’re s’posed to be drinkin’ the water in there with ‘em, much less, cleanin’ your paws. 

 

Why sissy? I’s bet those teethies would be great fun to play with.

 

 Dezi rolls on Yeowww nip toy

 

          Yeah, you try fishin’ ‘em outta the cup and playin’ with ‘em and see what mommy says. Me’s bettin’ all your treats fur a week that she won’t be amused.

 

 Raena lays on floor and look at camera

 

Oh sissy, you know mommy can’t be mad at us. ‘Specially not cute li’l ol’ me. Anyways, don’t you have a cat scouts trip to pack fur?

 

 Dezi in her Sabertooth Cat Scout uniform

 

          Me sure does, Raena. Me’s so x’cited. We’re havin’ Cat Scouts summer camp fur the next week. Yep, a whole week. We’re gonna be campin’ and hikin’ and climbin’ huge mountains. It’s gonna be a great adventure. 

 

That’s not fair sissy. Just not fair at all. I’s wanna be a cat scout too. 

 

 Dezi sits on floor with backpack and camping supplies for cat scouts summer camp trip

Me sure hopes me didn’t furget anythin’.

 

          It’s fair Raena, me’s been a cat scout fur years now. Maybe mommy will let you join someday, but right now, cat scouts belongs to me. It’s the only-est thing me doesn’t have to share. Least not all the time. You’ve gotten to go to some of the pawrties we have, but this adventure is really ‘purrtant. We usually have quests or jamborees to show off what we’ve learned in scouts; but, it’s been a while, so this adventure is countin’ as 2 quests. We’ll be competin’ against the other patrols to see who’s the better scouts. 

 

 Raena lays on liberty cat tree

 

That doesn’t seem very scout like sissy?. Mommy says it’s not to see who’s better, but mostly ‘bout who can answer the questions faster.

 

 Dezi rolls around on the liberty cat tree

 

          Yeah, it’s ‘bout that too Raena. It doesn’t really matter who wins, cuz we’re all great scouts. It’s just that the winners usually get a trophy and braggin’ rights. Me’s patrol, Wally’s Warriors, have won a lot of times. So, are ya’ gonna wish me luck?

 

Sure sissy. I’s do hope you do well and bring home the trophy. I’s never seen a trophy befur. I’s’ll sure miss ya’ while you’re gone tho’. 

 

          Aaaaaaaaw Fanks Raena. Me will miss you too…sort of. It’s gonna be up to you to take care of mommy while me’s away. Can ya’ do that? 

 

 Raena rolls around on the liberty cat tree

 

Of course I’s will take care of mommy sissy. Maybe she’ll take me fur a few strolls and give me some extra treats and cuddles. Yeah, I’s gonna luvs spendin’ time with mommy. I’s’ll have her all to mineself fur a whole week.

 

 Dezi lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

          Yeah, don’t get too comfy Raena. Me’s comin’ back home. Ya’ know, we have lots of new members joinin’ fur summer camp. Ifin any of ya’ out there have been thinkin’ ‘bout joinin’ Cat Scouts, ya’ oughtta do it. We have great fun. We’re a small community, but we all look out fur each other. Like me said, there’s lots of pawrties and fun to be had, but, there’s also the camaraderie and valuable lessons we learn. While most of Cat Scouts is of course virtual, we also make an impact in the real world. Lots of scouts send birthday cards each month to some peeps who have to live in community homes like nursing homes and such, and we help each other and our families when we can. Well, guess me needs to go pack.

 

You have fun sissy. Mommy and me will be fine. We’ll miss ya’, but we’re very purroud of you too. I’s’ll help ya’ pack. Do you have enuff batteries? 

 

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

A Thankful Blest Sunday

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.

 Dezi sitting on mommy's lap

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.

campfire-with-scouts-warriors

Me borrowed this from Timmy Tomcat.

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.

 Dezi being coy on the Liberty cat tree

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? 

 Dezi looking out the door from the Liberty cat tree

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.

Emerald Cat urn for Lexi's ashes

Isn’t this just beautiful?

Lexi's signature pose

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.
