Chatting Cats: It’s Party Time

Hey everypawdy, it’s me RaenaBelle. Are ya’ll ready to pawrty?!! Well come on in and let’s celebrate. There’s food and fun fur everyone. I’s gotta tell ya’, you all look pawsitively gawjus in your masks. Sissy and I’s wanna fanky fank all of ya’ fur comin’ to celebrate with us. 9 years ago on November 1st, sis Dezi came into this world; and a couple of weeks later on the 22nd of November, she chose mommy to save her and be her furever mommy. 

 

Dezi and Raena on party invitation for the Masquerade party

 

          That’s true Raena. Me had no idea what me’s life was gonna be like that day; but me knew without any doubt that me belonged with mommy. Our life hasn’t always been easy or fun, but it’s the bestest life this kitty girl could have ever asked fur. Me got an amazin’ sissyfur in Lexi; and she innerduced me to this pawsum world of the innernet and all our furiends. Everypawdy come on in and make yourself at home. 

 

Ice Cream Truck

 

Look’it sissy, I’s got an ice cream truck to come by so everypawdy could choose their favorite. You can even have seconds or thirds. (Raena giggles as she wipes a smidge of ice cream from her whiskers

 

          Looks like you’ve already had some ice cream Raena.

Well sissy, I’s had to try it out and make sure the ice cream man brought the good stuffs. I’s also hired a caterer to cook us up some tasty eats on the grill and bring veggie platters fur those who don’t eat meat. Don’t worry, ifin ya’ purrfur your meat raw, just let the grill master know. We don’t drink, so the catnip teas and nip juleps are the strongest drinks we have, but who needs alcohol to have fun…right?.

Blest Sunday: We Honor And Salute You

Dezi:  MeOW  C’mon Raena, today’s a very special Blest Sunday.

          Raena:  Really sissy? What’s so special ‘bout today? 

 

Dezi sits looking at flag on wood background frame

 

 

 

Dezi:  It’s Veteran’s Day, Raena. A day we take to ‘member the soldiers who fought, and many gave their lives so we could be free from tyranny. So many brave men, women and anipals gave their lives on distant shores, so that loved ones and even strangers like us could live our lives free from fear of wars in our own home. Me thinks we furget how things could be. We’ve been free fur so long that me thinks we sometimes take our Country’s greatness and freedoms fur granted.

 

Raena sits pretty in a patriotic memory frame

 

 

 

          Raena: I’s think you’re right sissy. It’s not purretty to think ‘bout young men, women and anipals lying in a trench on some foreign soil bleeding and dying. To think ‘bout them bein’ lonely and scared, and away from their families and loved ones; not knowin’ ifin they’ll ever see them again. To think ‘bout them swearin’ an oath to purrtect us…to die fur complete strangers. Soldiers who never gave a second thought to goin’ to bad places and facin’ bad people. Standing their ground and sayin’ “As long as I’m here, no one is going to hurt you”. 

 

Dezi with bowed head praying on the pet steps

 

 

 

Dezi:  So true Raena. There’s so much hate and discord in our Country right now. So many peeps sayin’ and doin’ things that would get them thrown into prison or killed in lesser Countries. Peeps tryin’ to take away the very freedoms that those soldiers bled and died for. The truth is, it’s a slap in the face, it’s like spittin’ on the graves of all those who bravely fought and lost their lives to secure those freedoms and make our Country great. It makes us so sad to hear ‘bout our vets bein’ treated badly. 

 

Raena sits on cat tree staring up at a fly

 

 

 

          Raena:  I’s think all those soldiers who died to make America great are turnin’ over in their graves at some of the nonsense goin’ on right now, sissy. In our house, we bleed red white and blue. We honor our flag and each and every soldier who willingly defends/defended our Country and us from our enemies. We are so Blest to have been born in such an amazing Country. We are Blest to have a mommy who has taught us the price that was paid to make our Nation great. 

 

Dezi lays in mommy's lap

 

 

 

Dezi:  Yes Raena, we are indeed Blest. We fank and salute each and every veteran and their families today and every day. We fank each and every soldier who serves us now. You may not know us, and we may not know your name, but we ask God to Bless and keep you each day. While you’re watchin’ over us, God is watchin’ over you. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you all to Give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. and we wanna fank you all fur bein’ Blessings in ours.

          Raena:  And, as we do each week, we’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. Purrlease ‘member to fanky fank our vets fur their service. Because of them and their sacrifice, you can sleep safely in your bed at night.

 

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

Chatting Cats: Has This Week Gone Crazy

(Raena sits on the perch at the door looking out) Hey doggy, be quiet!!! Don’t you know we’ve got headaches?! And, it’s World Cat Day? Kittens!!! What is with this place? 

 

Dezi looks down from atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          Dezi: Raena, what are you doin’? That doggy can’t hear you. He purrobably wouldn’t be able to unnerstand ya’ either. Ain’t nopawdy tryin’ to teach him anythin’. (Dezi shakes her head) Me’s not know why the neighbor thought she needed to go and get a doggy fur anyways. Just cuz she could get her doctor to write a letter sayin’ she needed one fur comfurt, doesn’t mean she really needs one. Just what kind’a comfurt do ya’ s’pose it’s purrvidin’ bein’ tied up on the front purrch all the time? 

 

Raena sits on small perch looking out door

 

 

 

I’s don’t know sissy, but these last couple of meownings have been pawful. What with mommy dealin’ with all the extra pain cuz of the dosage adjustments to her meds, purr these peeps decreein’ changes they know ’nuffin ’bout, we’re not gettin’ to bed till 4 or 5 in the meownin’. And there we were off in dream land yesfurday when we were jolted awake at 7:30 a.m. by the stupid lawn crew. I’s swear they must’ve rammed that lawn mower into the bedroom wall fur 2 hours straight. There ain’t even any grass back there; it’s all burned up cuz of the heat. We were so tired yesfurday we all fell asleep in front of the catputer. 

 

          Yep Raena, me thought they might just come thru the wall at one point. Me can tell ya’, they would’a faced the kind’a anger the likes have never been seen befur. It’s never a good thing to jolt mommy awake and then confront her befur she’s had the chance to go pawtty and have a cup of coffee. She might not be able to move her body in the meownin’, but she can still yell. MOL 

 

Raena sits on cat perch looking like a diva

 

 

 

That’s the truth sissy. Not that she’s ever yelled at us befur, but I’s seen her eyes without coffee, it ain’t purrettty. MOL  A caffeinated mommy, is a happy mommy. 

 

          She’s much calmer Raena, that’s fur sure. Me’s not sure which is worse tho’; bein’ jolted out of dreamland cuz of the lawn crew or the thunder boomers we had this meownin’?. 

 

Oh sissy, I’s gotta tell ya’ they really messed up mine’s dream. There I’s was, Queen of the jungle, stalkin’ mine’s prey when all of a sudden… BOOM!!! CRASH!!!  It was so loud, I’s pounced and missed mine’s dinner altogether.

 

Dezi lays on the floor

 

 

 

          Is that why you were droolin’ in your sleep, Raena? 

 

I’s wasn’t droolin’, sissy. You’re the one who drools, not me. 

 

          Hmmmpht  Me only drools when me’s happy and gettin’ mommy luvvin’. Neither of those things are happenin’ when mommy’s snorin’ like a chain saw. Me’s a little surpurrised we could hear anythin’ over her log cuttin’. None the less, those thunder boomers were a rude way to wake up. 

 

Dezi sits on shower chair and Raena lays on shower bench

 

 

 

And with the sound of all that water fallin’, I’s wasn’t sure we’d get mommy to the pawtty room fast enuff, sissy. Fanky fankfully we made it, only to be met by the neighbor’s new doggy barkin’ away on the front purrch out in the rain. All befur brekky and mommy’s furst cup of coffee. 

 

          Well Raena, seems he’s quieted down now. Me has a feelin’ mommy’s gonna be chattin’ with his human befur long. She came in from takin’ the trash out the other day, complainin’ ‘bout how somepawdy keeps lettin’ their doggy(s) poop on the sidewalk and then just leavin’ it. Me just doesn’t unnerstand why these peeps have such a hard time cleanin’ up after their woofies.

 

Dezi sits on shower chair and Raena lays on shower bench

 

 

 

Ain’t that the truth. sissy. Like, who wants to step in poop unaware? It’s bad enuff that you don’t cover your business and I’s have to wait 15 minutes fur it to get cleaned up. But seein’ it layin’ there on the sidewalk swarmin’ with bugs is disgustin’. There oughtta be a law, oh wait, there is a law. 

 

          Aren’t you the funny one Raena. Anyways, ‘nuff meowin’ ‘bout pawtty habits, we’re way behind in visitin’ our furiends again. And, as you meowed earlier, today is our day, World Cat Day. ‘Course, we’re purretty sure every day is Cat day ‘round here. MOL  Hopefully, the storms will go away or at least let up long enuff fur us to see what everypawdy’s been up too. 

 

Raena looks out the door from the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

I’s sure hope so sissy. And maybe we can all get a good night’s sleep tonight. Let’s go finish brekky and then get on with some visitin’ and wish everykitty a Happy Cat day. 

 

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