(Dezi sits and watches the lights blink on and off on the Christmas tree and turns to mommy and meows) Mommy, how many days are left befur Christmas?
6 Days, baby, 6 days.
Me can’t wait. Me just luvs Christmas. And me luvs lookin’ at all da Christmas cards we’ve been getting.
Me too sweety.
I’s luvs Christmas too, mommy.
I’m glad you like Christmas Raena. What’s been your favorite thing so far?
Da lights. I’s really like nommin’ da lights.
You’re not s‘posed to nom da lights Raena, you’re only s‘posed to look at ‘em. Dat doesn’t even count as a Christmas activity. (Dezi acts perturbed.)
Mommy says I’s can pick anythin’ I’s want sissy. (Raena sits back and thinks a bit) I’s know!!! We won a Christmas Stockin’ from our furiends Zorro and Pixie from da Swiss Cats, and you said it could be allllll mines. I’s luvs it. And it’s soooooo cool; mines stocking came all da way from Switzerland.
Do you even know where Switzerland is Raena?
(Raena shuffles her paws) Well, no, sissy. But I’s do know it’s really far away. Awnty Claire sent it speedy ship or else it never woulda got here befur Christmas. Oh, and you know what else I’s luvs sissy? We got a new ‘lectric blanky. And mommy said we didn’t have to wait fur Christmas to start usin’ it. Fank da cats, cuz it’s been really cold ‘round here. Y, Just this meownin’ it was 7 degrees F. But we were toasty warm all cuddled up together under da new ‘lectric blanky.
Yep Raena, we sure are blest. We furgot to ask ‘bout usin’ names, so we’ll just say a meowsy big Fank you to our ‘lectric blanky Angel. (Dezi purrs loudly and then peers at Raena) Don’t you have somethin’ you wanna say Raena?
(Raena thinks a minute) Ummmm, well…Oh yeah, I’s do sissy. Fanky Fank ya’ dear Angel furiend. We luvs our new ‘lectric blanky. Mommy was so excited she furgot to take fotos. Now da camera batteries are dead and we gotta wait fur ’em to charge so we can take fotos. But you can trust me when I’s tell ya’, we are luvvin’ da snuggly warmth it emanates. Ya’ know sissy, we have da bestest furiends in da universe.
Yes Raena, we do. You know, mommy talked ‘bout how we made all these furiends yesfurday when she wrote da posty. We better wrap it up fur now. Mommy wants another cup of coffee and we need to finish eatin’ brekky. And there’s some gifts under da tree dat need investigatin’ befur Christmas. We hope ya’ll are stayin’ warm. Me also wants to fank all of you who are takin’ care of ferals in your area. Just a few more dreams and Christmas day will be here.

Meownin’ sissy. Is it time to wake up mommy yet? (Dezi stretches and yawns)
It’z Christmas Dezi. It’z fur shur time to wake up mommy. (Lexi stretches out her arm and pats mommy on the leg with her dainty paw)
Christmas? Oh sissy me luvs Christmas. (Dezi stands totally awake and walks onto mommy’s chest and starts massaging and purring. Then she starts swooshing her fluffy tail back and forth over mommys face)
(Mommy slowly opens her eyes and speaks) Good morning girls. Merry Christmas. I love you both sooooooo much. I’m the blestest mommy in the universe. (Dez continues to swoosh her fluffy tail) Dezi, please stop swooshin’ I’d rather not have a mouth full of fur this morning. (Dezi stops swooshing and crawls off mommy’s checst and settles in to massage her arms and legs while Lexi gets the wheelchair positioned)
Oh meowllo everypawdy and Merry Christmas to you all. By now most of you have started celebrating with your own traditions. We thought today we would share our Christmas traditions with you. And afur me furgets, weez joinin da Pet Parade as we do every weekend. Our meownin’ starts out just like any other day, but soon da traditions will begin. After we all get around and sissy and me have our breakfast and mommy has a cup of coffee or two we settle in to start our celebrations. Mommy usually tells da story but today she sed I kuld. So pull up a chair and grab you sum coffee or your drink of choice.
Open da Bible to da story mommy, you know da one ‘bout God luvvin’ us so much dat He gave His only Son so dat whoever believed in Him kuld have eternal life. John 3:16 (paraphrased) And then da one ‘bout how Jesus got here.
So, a long time ago in a place very far away, lived a girl and her betrothed. Dat’s a fiance` in case you was wunnerin’. Well peeps had kind of lost site of God and doin’ right. But God knew all was not lost and decided to send His only Son to earth to save us all from sin and hell. The very furst Christmas purresent was born, literally. Happy Birffday Jesus. But Jesus isn’t just fur Christmas, He’s fur da whole year fru. Jesus was born in a lowly stable full of anipals. Da furmily didn’t have much, but they had lots and lots of luv. And so long as you have luv and God in your life, you can make it fru anyfin’. We are so blest cuz we have each other and now all our furiends from all round da world cuz of da innernets.
So after mommy tells us da story, we sing lots of carols and songs together. And then we settle in to purray and thank God fur all da blessings in our lives and His gift to da world. And then we’ll be openin’ up all those pawsum purresents we got. And as we open each one we’ll say a little purrayer askin’ God to bless them fur includin’ us. And then we’ll all snuggle together and take a little nap. Da day will be over afur we know it, but next year when it comes around again, you’ll find us doin’ da very same thing. There’s nuffin’ wrong with a little tradition.
Heavenly Father, we come to You in the Name of Jesus and we wanna thank you for all da many blessings in our lives. Thank You fur sendin’ Your Son, dat we might have life abundantly. Thank you dat we have today together and that we can share Your love with others. Thank you soooooo much fur all our wunnerful furiends and furmily Lord, and purrlease send your angels to watch over them and pour out Your blessings on them. Many are sick in body. Father, we ask dat You wuld send them healing or give da doctors da knowledge to help them. Many are lonely and/or depressed. We thank You fur wrapping them in Your arms of comfurt and rest and giving them peace. And Lord too many are meeting today suffering from sadness due to a recent loss. Father we know dat You know best, but da hurt can’t be reasoned with so we ask You to give comfort where none is found. Lord we thank You fur caring fur all Your cweations and keeping us all safe from harm. Lord me and mommy sure do thank You fur givin’ us another year with sis Lexi and ask dat you continue to keep her and give her strength to continue on. We thank you so much fur all those who have helped us this past year with money, purrayers, gifts and luv. We thank you fur returning da blessing ten fold fur them. Thank you fur helping me get and stay well. Dat Cystitis was no fun. Lord we thank you fur usin’ us to bless others and givin’ us da ability to bless. We thank You fur purrvidin’ peace where there’s war, healin’ among da sick, comfurt to da lonely, guidance to da lost, and thank you fur keeping Your hands on each and every one of us. God, You know da needs whether they be big or small and we thank you fur meeting them. We ask Your blessings and wisdom go with us in da coming New Year so dat we can grow and spread more luv to more people. We ask and purray these things in Jesus Name believing, and we give You all da purraise and all da glory furever, Amen

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.

Meowllo everypawdy and welkum to our Sharing Christmas posty. Have you been wunnerin’ where we was? And now you wanna know just what sharing Christmas means don’t ya’? Well let me answer both those questions at once. As you all know mommy is a little technically challenged and well…she really just doesn’t know what she’s doin’ on da catputer half da time, so this latest purroject really stumped her. Anyways, we finally finished as best we kuld. We had wanted to add photos fur you to look at, but dat just didn’t happen, so just use your imagination, okay?. And be kind, this is our mommy after all and we fink she’s da cat’s meow.
As you know sis Lexi and me are Service cats, which means we purrfurm certain tasks to help mommy live independently. But on occasion we also purrfurm da duties of Therapy cats, meaning we go and visit and bring cheer to those in nursing homes, or educate da public when da oppurrtunity purrsents itself. Every Christmas we like to go to da nursing home and spread a little Christmas cheer and sing carols with da residents. And so on Caturday we loaded up and away we went. We learned last year dat we kuldn’t take photos to post since we’re not kin to any of da residents and they hadn’t signed releases fur social media. Well this year we learned they weren’t considered competent to sign da releases we took. Hmmph, There’s always gotta be a scrooge. But dat’s okay, me talked mommy into playin’ and singin’ a couple songs fur y’all when we got home. Several peeps have expwessed an interest in hearin’ mommy so me fawt this was da purrfect time. Mommy was a bit tired and hoarse, but sis Lexi and me still think she’s pawsum. And we both laid on da nip mats and lissened intently while she recorded da video.
We soon learned however dat recordin’ it was da easy part. As me sed, we kuldn’t figger out how to insert fotos stead of da fireplace or just add it to one of our videos. Weez sure there’s a way, we just don’t know it. So like me sed, just magine ‘em in yous head. And again, purrlease be nice, it is our mommy.
