(
Dezi rolls around on a Yeowww nip toy and stops to bathe her paw and meows) RaenaBelle, come over here. It’s time fur our Blest Sunday posty. 

 

 Raena sits pretty at the edge of the kitchen

 

          (Raena emerges from the kitchen, looks toward the living room and meows) It’s that time already sissy? I’s do luvs Blest Sunday.

Me too Raena. We are such blest kitties. Me heard mommy got the courage this past week to mention that nasty incident that happened at the furst dentist ya’ll went to see. You know, the one who wanted you to wait out in the hot car cuz he was ‘lergic to kitties?

 

 Raena sits pretty at the edge of the kitchen

 

 

          Sure ‘nuff, sissy. She asked Dr. Amy ifin she was ‘lergic to cats and how she really felt ‘bout me bein’ there with mommy. She didn’t even hesitate when she said, ifin she had been ‘lergic, she would just take a Benedryl. And then she said she had owned many kitties throughout her life. It made us feel really good. We knew we liked Dr. Amy, and now we knew we were in the purrfect place fur mommy to get her dental work done.

 

Me’s glad mommy likes Dr. Amy. And me’s glad she can be a purrfessional, unlike that other guy. 

 

          Me too sissy. Hey, did you see the toy awnty Vonda sent mommy? 

 

 Forever in my heart windchime gift from Vonda

 

Uh, me doesn’t think that’s a toy Raena. Mommy doesn’t yell at us not to touch toys. But, the whole time she was takin’ fotos, she kept tellin’ you to leave it alone. 

 

          I’s know, sissy. What’s up with that? Soooooo much temptation, that heart hangin’ down there.

 

 Forever in my heart heart shaped windchime ringer

 

Yeah Raena, it did look like a lot of fun. But, it also looks great hangin’ on the porch in front of the window. Mommy says a meowsy big Fank you awnty Vonda. She says it makes her think good thoughts ‘bout all her kitties in heaven every time the wind blows.

 

 Raena looks out door from the small perch

 

          Yeah, it’s purretty hangin’ on the porch, but I’s would still rather play with it in the house. But, I’s guess we have purrlenty of toys to play with. We can let mommy have this one. On another note, did you hear all that bangin’ into the wee hours of the meownin’ last night?

 

 Dezi gets loving while laying on the arm of chair-selfie

 

You mean the ones after the thunderstorms Raena? Yep, me heard ‘em. It’s getting’ close to the 4th of July. It happens every year, peeps lose their minds and their manners fur ‘bout a week and set of fireworks all day and night. You were purrobably too young and noisily active last year to notice.

 

          Maybe so sissy. I’s don’t really ‘member anythin’ from then. Ya’ know, I’s might have even thought you were hidin’ from me, ‘stead of all that noise. 

 

Me’s not hidin’ Raena. Me’s checkin’ fur spiders and other intruders to keep you and mommy safe.

 

 Raena lays on the liberty cat tree

 

          Uh, sure, sissy. Inside mommy’s sittin’ chair? (Rolls eyes) Whatever you say, sissy, whatever you say.

Come on Raena, let’s go play. Furst, let me remind everypawdy ‘bout the fundraiser fur mommy’s dental work. We’re almost there. She has a ‘pointment fur July 20th to have the rest of her teethies removed and get her dentures. We still need your help gettin’ the rest of the money together. You can dontate thru the fundraiser by clickin’ here, or directly to our paypal at: lexi.dezi@yahoo.com

 

 Dezi and Raena in the US flag wishing a Happy 4th

 

          We’re also gonna link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. And, cuz of the holiday, we’re gonna take tomorrow off. But, we’ll be back next week fur our regular Service Cat Monday. Fur now, we’ll be wishin’ ya’ a Happy 4th today.

 

Dezi rolls on Yeowww nip toy

Fanks Raena. We also wanna say fank you to all our furiends. We are so blest to have you all in our lives. Purrlease be safe ifin you’re purrticipatin’ in any July 4th celebrations. ‘Member, some of us furries don’t find the celebrations nearly as much fun as peeps do.

We Remember: Thank You for Your Service

No matter how we as individual Americans feel about politics, the president, representatives, political parties, skirmishes and wars, we all have one thing in common…we live in a Country of freedoms paid for with the blood, sweat, limbs, and lives of those who were willing to put themselves in between us and those who would try to enslave us. Peace and Freedom, require a price that not all have the ability to give, but those who do, pay it for us all. The right to speak or write your opinion, to disagree with the president and say so, the right to own a gun or rifle, the right to worship the Lord the way you choose, or not too, the right to protest, the right to live the life you choose: these are just a few of the freedoms we take for granted each and every day. But for each, there was a price a soldier had to pay. 

 

 Raenabelle in an ovel frame with a crying American eagle and flag

 

          That’s right sissy. Each day that we write a post adding our opinions to this thing called the world wide web, we are exercising the rights a soldier bled and died for. America, is indeed the Greatest Country in the world. She has always stood for Liberty and Justice for all. The recent influx of muslim ideals has caused a real division in this Country.

 

 Dezi in an oval frame with a crying American eagle and flag

 

Yep Raena, and we think peeps aren’t truly aware of the realities of what muslims actually believe. If they were, there would be a lot less division. Take a look at the countries ruled by Islam and Sharia law; they ARE NOT FREE!!! Women and Minorities, have NO rights. There is no other place on this planet where you will find the freedoms we have here in the United States of America. This is  just the latest in a long line of peoples/ideals trying to enslave us. Those soldiers who fight and have fought often find/found themselves serving in Countries where they aren’t/weren’t allowed to exercise the basic freedoms they are/were fighting for. But, because they so believed in everybody’s right to freedom, they willingly left their families and homes not knowing if they would ever return. We are ashamed of how some have treated returning soldiers in the past. Again, we may not agree with the war, but we should always come together as a Country of free people and support those who are willing to put themselves between us and danger. 

 

 

9/11 was a real wake up call to this Country. We go about our daily lives and give no thought to what’s going on in the rest of the world. And yet, every day American soldiers are somewhere in foreign lands fighting to keep us safe, to make life better for all. We don’t worry about bombs going off in our cities and towns, schools or churches. Unlike many countries, we don’t worry about soldiers or terrorists knocking down our doors and raping the women and children and killing the men. We protest without a fear of being executed. We do these things because of those soldiers, those men, women and animals, fathers, sons, brothers, mothers, daughters and sisters who put themselves on a wall and say, “Not on my watch.

 

 

To those soldiers and their families, we say, THANK YOU!!! God Bless You!!! We support you, and we are praying for you. And for all those who never came home alive or the same and their families, we are so grateful for your service and sacrifice. We cherish the freedom every drop of blood gave us. We will Never Forget the price you paid. Again, THANK YOU!!!

 

 Thank You emoji

 

          We carefully and thoughtfully, and yes, tearfully chose the videos we’re sharin’ with you all today. We do hope you’ll take the few minutes required to watch them. And purrrrrrrrrrlease, remember to thank any soldier or vet you may meet at any time. You are living a free life they fought for.

 

 

GOD BLESS AMERICA 

 

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

Chatting Cats: Raena and the Bunny: A Story in Photos

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Sissy? Where’d you go yesfurday when mommy’s case manager came over? You had been takin’ a nice nap on the cat tree, and then when she got here, you were nowhere to be found?. She started askin’ mommy ifin we was ‘fraid of her, the storms and other loud noises.

 

 

dw-Dezi n Raena on the cat tree 9102

 

          Purrrrrrrlease!. Me’s not ‘fraid of her. Me just knew mommy was a little upset with her not doin’ her job, and didn’t wanna be anywhere near that conversation.

 

Oooooooh  She sure was upset with her sissy. Mommy’s case manager started talkin’ and mommy picked up the fone and said, “I have the message right here, ya’ want me to play it for ya’?” Case manager lady started shiftin’ in her seat. She was a little uncomfurtable that mommy had saved all the communications they’d had. She’s s’posed to call mommy once a week. And, when the DHS nurse was here back in January, she told mommy to have her case manager get her some wrist and knee braces. Mommy infurmed her case manager and then had doc write the scripts. It’s almost June and the case worker still hasn’t done anythin’ ‘bout gettin’ those fur mommy. And, after mommy’s recent fall, she’s a bit uptight ‘bout that. We could really care less ifin she calls every week, but the fact is, she hasn’t been, and that means, she ain’t doin’ her job. I’s should’a joined you UTB. MOL

(Raena sees a squirrel out the door and runs to the perch)

dw-Raena in stroller 9333

What do you mean NO, mommy? I’s know I’s luvs bunny noms;

but I’s purromiss, I’s won’t eat da bunny.

 

dw-Raena meows at bunny from stroller 9330

Bunny?!! Come back!!! I’s purromiss!!! I’s won’t eat you!!!

You’s don’t know what might be waitin’ fur ya’

in those there woods.

 

dw-Raena walking towards woods in harness sm 9335     

Hurry mommy!!! We gotta go ketch Bunny!!!

Wait fur me Bunny, I’s comin’!!!

(Raena hurries while mommy pulls back on the leash)

Kittens!!! Come on mommy, Bunny’s gonna get away.

 

 Me saw you try Raena. But, there’s no way mommy was gonna let you play with that bunny. You know how germifobic she is. MOL  Me can’t believe she actually let you walk on the ground without shoes or somethin’. 

 

Well, maybe I’s didn’t actually romp ‘round with the bunny, but I’s did have a meow with it. Mommy said she couldn’t believe how close it let us get to it. And I’s saw a squirrel and some birdies. Who knows, those birdies might have been the ones from the nest on our porch.

 

          Sure Raena, those 4 little birdies are the only birdies ‘round here. MOL 

 

Are you and mommy goin’ fur a stroll today?

          We better be Raena. Ifin not today, then fur sure, she’ll take me tomorrow when we celebrate her birthday. Me’s gonna wear me’s new harness too.

 

 

Sissy, are we havin’ a pawrty fur mommy?

 

          Nope, no pawrties Raena, just lots of extra cuddles and luvvin’. 

 

And treats fur us? 

 

          Sure ‘nuff Raena. Mommy even said we weren’t s’posed to have any storms tomorrow, so we’ll get to have that pizza awnty Anonymous sent you fur your birthday. Mommy said we’ve gotta finish celebratin’ your birthday befur your Gotchaday gets here next month.

 

 

 

dw-Raena lays on shower bench 9310

 

Gotcha day? Am I’s gonna have another pawrty? 

 

          We’ll see Raena. Me bets you can at least invite some furiends over fur a play date.

 

Can I’s invite Simon with the floofy tail? And maybe Ollie and Alberto, and Valentine and…

 

          Stop while you’re ahead Raena. Ifin ya’ invite all of blogville, we might as well have a pawrty. 

 

WooHoo  Another pawrty!!! 

 

          Slow down, me didn’t say we were havin’ a pawrty, just that we should. We’ll have to meow to mommy and see what she says.
