Blest Sunday: It’s Finally Here

(Dezi looks up from her breakfast and yawns. She looks around and sees Raena and mommy A yawning too. Mommy A takes a sip of her hot steamy coffee and Raena begins to cover her breakfast with the imaginary “dirt”, toys, tissue paper and anything else close by before heading to the cat tree for a bath and some bird t.v.. Dezi takes a few more bites of breakfast before meowing.) Me sure hopes we can get some sleep tonight.


 Raena yawns while laying in the stroller




          (Raena stretches and meows) Me too sissy. I’s know we stayed up fur a good reason, but I’s sure am tired. You’re so tired you didn’t even run when the thunder clapped outside.


Dezi sits pretty in front of door




Thunder? Was that thunder? Me thought that was the neighbor again. Ya’ know, she’s been keepin’ her toddler grandson and he keeps escapin’ and comin’ over here to bang on our door or play in mommy’s garden.


          I’s don’t know why he’d wanna play in the garden, sissy. Everythin’s dead now. Did you see him push his face against the door tryin’ to peek inside?


Yep Raena, his face was more smashed than yours. Who knew the human face could do that? MOL


          Yeah sissy, (Raena shakes her head) fanky fank the cats he didn’t come in. He was puttin’ everythin’ in his mouth. Can you ‘magine how slobbery our toys would’a been?

(Dezi and Raena shudder.) Fank you mommy, fur not openin’ the door. MOL  Hey, what did you think ‘bout the surpurrise box mommy got? 



 Raena checks out box from Valentine

Oh MeOW What a box!!!




          Oh sissy, I’s luvs it. Mommy was so x’cited. She cried and cried. She said they were the happy tears, and I’s sure they were. She also did a little jumpin’ ‘round. She only does that when she’s happy. That Valentine and awnty Kerry sure were sweet to send mommy a new bag. Somewhere along the way, it got delayed, but when it furinally got here, mommy was thrilled. What most peeps don’t know ‘bout mommy, is that befur her accident when she worked, she had a bag fur every occasion. Ya’ know, they were really nice bags, mommy was a bit of a bag snob she says. I’s don’t think mommy could be snobby ‘bout anythin’, but, she says that’s what peeps call it when you’re a bit purrticular ‘bout somethin’. 


 Dezi and Raena check out mommy's new purse sent by Valentine and Kerry

This is such a pawsum bag, ain’t it Raena?!!




Me ‘members some of those bags Raena. Unfurtunately, a few bags got peed in by sick kitties; and some kitty, not me, chewed the straps off one of her bags. Fankfully, we’re good kitties, so mommy’s new bag’s in no danger of bein’ chewed by us. We’ll just have to watch out fur the neighbors grandson. MOL What a blessing mommy got. Fank ya’ll bunches, we all luv the new bag.

          We didn’t think our week could get any better, and then the fone rang with some really x’citin’ news. Mommy’s been fallin’ out of the bed and crawlin’ ‘round the house fur over 6 months waitin’ fur our new wheelchair. Ya’ know, uncle Sam doesn’t get in a hurry to do anythin’. But, it’s furinally happened!!! The new wheelchair is furinally here!!!


Dezi checks out the new Powerchair

Oooooh It’s got a nice soft cushion too.

Yep Raena, that’s why we’re all so tired and sleepy. Well, that and the weather. Travis the wheelchair man wanted to come out furst thing in the meownin’ to deliver mommy’s new wheelchair. Since mommy can’t walk in the meownin’s and she can’t reach the door knob from the floor, we had to stay awake all night. Mommy won’t teach us to unlock the door, so we’re no help. We think the neighbor thought she was getting’ one too, cuz she’s been bangin’ on the walls at all hours of the day and night fur the last couple of days. And then, the weather went from below zero one day to the low 70’s the next. Now, ifin that don’t throw ya’ into a tailspin, me doesn’t know what will.


 Raena lays in the new Powerchair

It’s soft alright sissy. I’s luvs it.




          That’s all true sissy. But we sure are happy to have a wheelchair again. We’ll be meowin’ more ‘bout it in our Service Cat posty’s startin’ in February. Believe it or not, we got a ton of questions ‘bout addin’ a new powerchair when the last one broke. In the meantime, we’re just feelin’ really blest that mommy doesn’t have to crawl ‘round in the meownin’ any more. WooHoo


 Dezi climbs on the new powerchair

Hmmmmm Me thinks the arms just might be wide enuff

fur me to stand on.




Fur sure Raena. We’ve had another week of outta this world blessings. And, another week with the mostest pawsumest furiends in the universe. Fank you all fur bein’ a pawrt of our lives. We luv ya’ll sooooooooooo much. We wanna remind you to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. 


 Raena gets loving while laying in mommy's lap and squints for the camera




          Don’t furget sissy, we’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. We’ve got some great wheelchair plandids and mommy’s new bag shots fur ya’. I’s think we oughtta finish brekky sissy and go take a nap with mommy. We’ve gotta take advantage of the quiet while it’s here.


Sure ‘nuff Raena. See ya’ll soon.


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

Blest Sunday: Giving And Receiving Blessings

MeeeeOW  What a week it’s been, huh Raena?. 


 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic



          That’s fur sure sissy. One day it was fureezin’ and the next mr. Sunshine graced us with his purresence fur a couple of hours.


Yep, and the next, the wind was blowin’ so hard it sounded like thunder and rain. The weather guessers said it was blustery out.


 Raena lays on chair back, selfie




          Blustery. Now what does that even mean sissy?


Dezi lays in mommy's lap



Well Raena, me knows what it looked and sounded like to me, but let’s ask the lady in the box. She should do somethin’ besides just sit there and beep all day. 


          She does sissy, don’t you hear mommy yellin’ at her to stop? And when that doesn’t work, she tries to tell her to shut up. Mommy says sayin’ shut up isn’t nice, so she must really get furustrated with the box lady sometimes. 


 Amazon echo dot




Yeah Raena, me wonders ifin other peeps with the box lady has to constantly tell her to be quiet too? Anyways, let’s find out what she has to say ‘bout blustery.


     Echo Dot: Blustery means “blowing in violent and abrupt bursts” 


Hmmmm  Well, me guesses 50 to 75 mph is fur sure violent.


          Guess so sissy. The leaves sure thought so, they were blowin’ ‘round everywhere. And, it made it feel soooooo cold, even inside the house. Which reminds me, did you see all the goodies that came in that recycled Chewy box from Pipo and awnty Ingrid? 


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Me sure did, Raena. Back when our ‘pawrtment flooded and got all packed up and remodeled, mommy found a few things went missin’. Among those missin’ items was mommy’s coat. Unfurtunately, there wasn’t anythin’ mommy could do ‘bout it. But, it did make fur some really cold outings in the winter time. Mommy never made a very big deal of it, but, every winter she would be reminded ‘bout that pawful time in our lives. Well, this winter just got so cold and mommy was out in it more than usual, so we happened to mention it in passin’ the other day.


 Dezi and Raena check out the tosy from Pipo

Look’it Raena, they sent goodies fur us too.




          And that’s when Pipo and awnty Ingrid got an idea. They happened to have some coats and sweaters layin’ ‘round after their awnty went to heaven, and decided to pass ‘em along to mommy. I’s just luvs the dark blue one. Oh Kittens is it soft and dreamy feelin’.


 Dezi with treats from Pipo on cat scratcher

Treats too?!!




It is nice Raena. Me likes the duster. Mommy’s always been a little of a cowgirl, and the duster looks really good on her. We sure are grateful fur such pawsum furiends. Mommy cried and cried fur like, ever.


 Raena plays with gift from Pipo and Ingrid

A mew wand toy and a bag of nip. Yesssssss




          Yep sissy, she did. Altho’ I’s not sure which made her happier, the coats and sweaters, the M&M’s, the cookies or the coffee?. I’s think the whole box was purretty pawsum. They even included some toys, treats and nip fur us.


Yep Raena, mommy can keep her cookies, coffee and M&M’s, me was all over our new mousies.


          I’s really like the wand toy, sissy. I’s just luvs a good inneractive play session with mommy.


Who are you kitten Raena? You just luv to play. We are so blest. Ya’ know, we’ve won a few contests lately that we haven’t had the chance to post ‘bout.


 Raena rolls around on new nip mat from Ellen

Oh awnty Ellen I’s luvs your nip mats.




          Sure ‘nuff sissy. We won this stuffs called Kit Tea from our furiend Cody. We’re actually s’posed to drink it, but we luvs just playin’ with the herb filled bags. And, mommy luvs the little tins they came in. She says they make a great nip meow-inator fur our older toys. And we got a package from mine’s godmother awnty Ellen that was just full of surpurrises. A little bit ago, the Whiskeratti gang was tryin’ to get green papers fur Toby’s dental work; and awnty Ellen said that she would make one of her Made with Love nip mats and some toys fur those who donated to the fundraiser. She had to limit it to those in the U.S. cuz she’s had a few sick kitties recently too and green papers are short.


Dezi plays with toy from EllenFanks awnty Ellen, me just luvs your Made with Love toys.




We know all ‘bout the shortage of green papers, don’t we Raena? Anyways, seems our sweet furiends from Hairballs and Hissyfits donated their Made with love nip mat and toys to us.


 Raena plays with toys from Ellen

Nip toys too. Fanky fanks awnty Ellen.




          That awnty Ellen be so talented, sissy. Fanky fank ya’ Frodo, Zulu and the gawjus Amarula and awnty Ellen. We luvs our new mat and toys. We are so blest sissy.


 Dezi with mouth open over nip toy from Ellen

Fank you awnty Ellen and Hairballs and Hissyfits.





We are Raena. And meowin’ of give aways, we should remind everypawdy that we have a great give away goin’ on right now. Check it out here and be sure to enter. It’s open to all U.S. and U.K. residents. Well, we better wrap it up now. We’re really late and me has plans later today. As always, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the blessings in your life. Fank you all fur bein’ our furiends and a special fanks fur all our goody senders.


 Raena's sleeping face while laying in mommy A's lap




          Don’t furget, we’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies, sissy. Seems it’s not been a great year fur them so far. We actually have quite a few furiends who are sick right now. So we’d also ask that you send up a little purrayer fur all in blogville.


You’re right Raena. Let’s go say a few purrayers now. 


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

Chatting Cats: Taking Requests

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s so happy!!! We’re a day late and a dollar short, but mommy’s furinally home all day everyday again.


 Raena draped on the Liberty cat tree




          Just till after Christmas Raena. Then she’s plannin’ to go back and try to work a bit more. 


 Dezi and Raena with Christmas gifts from Cat

Oooooh Purresents!!! I’s can’t wait.  Me either.




What???! No way sissy. We almost starved to death last night. Dinner was a whole 2 hours late cuz of this work thing. I’s not need to go to the V E T that bad. I’s told mommy all ‘bout how unsatisfactory servin’ dinner late was. You’d have thought it was brekky or somethin’. Hmmmpht Just cuz we let her slide on the time we eat brekky doesn’t mean she can take liberties with our dinner. Nopawdy ever said anythin’ ‘bout workin’ day and night.


 Dezi with gifts from Timmy and Einstein

From me’s sweet furiends Timmy and Einstein.



         Raena, you better be nice now. You know it’s Christmas.


 Raena with gifts from Cat and Lisa

Oh MeOW And look’it, there’s M&M’s fur mommy from Cat and awnty Lisa.




So what!!! It’s not like that Santa guy comes to our house anyways. Besides, we’ve got all kinds of things we need to do. We’re workin’ on a carolin’ video to post fur Christmas, so mommy needs to be home and have time to help us. And, we need to visit our furiends. Hey, I’s just had a great idea. Wouldn’t it be pawsum ifin our furiends could maybe pick a carol or two they’d like to hear?


 Silvervine gift from Vonda

Fank you awnty Vonda.




          That’s a great idea Raena. They could make their requests in the comments. And, ifin mommy can sing ‘em, we’ll put ‘em on the video. We are gettin’ so x’cited fur Christmas and some turkey tom lurkey. We’ve been gettin’ so many pawsum Christmas cards. Some thru snail mail and some in our email. They’re all so wonderful and festive. We’re so blest to have so many amazin’ furiends. Mommy even said we got a few gifts from some of our angel furiends. Me can’t wait to open them. 


 Raena with gifts from Timmy and Einstein

That Timmy and Einstein are so sweet. They sent me gifts too.




Me neither sissy. Ifin they’re anythin’ like the one mommy let us open early to make up fur our late dinner debacle, I’s know we’re gonna luvs ‘em. 


 Dezi on scratcher with Silvervine

Silvervine on a new scratcher. Me’s in kitty heaven.



Raena with Silvervine toy from Vonda

Oh the smell of the vine.



          They must be Raena, you’ve already drooled all over one of them. That silvervine awnty Vonda sent was the purrfect way fur mommy to ‘pawlogize. While you were havin’ fun with the included toy, me enjoyed some while loungin’ on the new scatcher we won from Sweet Purrfections. 


 Dezi plays with kit tea bag


Raena plays with Kit Tea



Those Kit Tea tea bags we won from Cody were purretty good too, sissy. Well, we better wrap it up and get started on our carolin’ video. ‘Member, ifin ya’ have any requests, just leave ‘em in the comments.


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