We both do, Raena. But, we luv you very much too. We don’t always unnerstand why God does the things He does, but we have to believe it’s fur a good reason. After all, ifin sis Lexi hadn’t gone to heaven we would’a never had you in our family. And only the good Lord knows what would’a happened to ya’ then. What with your scrawnly little fluffy body and mucky eyes and nose, you didn’t stand a chance in that there cage you were livin’ in. It’s a wonder you could even see or smell. Mommy says she ‘members your furst night here with us. You’d never seen a toy or had room to run, and you were goin’ nuts. It’s like you didn’t know what to do furst.

          Oh sissy, I’s barely ‘member any of that. I’s do ‘member the relief I’s felt when mommy said I’s was gonna live with her furever and ever tho’. That was the bestest day of mine’s life. Ifin I’s never celebrated another birthday it would be okay cuz mommy makes me feel special every day. I’s one Blest kitty girl fur sure.

Yep Raena, you got that right. Me just wishes every kitty in the world could know a little sliver of the happiness and security we do. 

 

 Happy birthday card to Raena from Pipo and Dalton

Fanky fank you Pipo and Dalton.

 

 

 

          Me too sissy. Not only do we have a luvvin’ mommy and furever home, we’ve got the bestest furiends in the universe. I’s wanna fanky fank awnty Anonymous, awnty Vonda and awnty Susan fur mine’s birthday green papers. Mommy’s purromissed to take me shoppin’ to pick out somethin’ special fur me and fur you. After all, I’s luvs to share. I’s also luvs those fureeze dried kangaroo treats mommy got fur us. They sure were tasty. And, the weather’s warmed up enuff fur a stroll today. I’s can’t hardly wait. What a pawsum way to celebrate. Even tho’ mine’s birthday was technically last Caturday when it was rainin’ and fureezin’ cold out, this weekend’s much better. I’s think mommy’s way of celelbratin’ all month is just purrfect. I’s also wanted to fanky fank our furiends Valentine and awnty Kerry and Pipo and Dalton fur the pawsum birthday cards. I’s even got some of those great e-cards from awnty Vonda and awnty Jeanne and Purrseidon. Fanky fank you all so very much. And fanky fank you all fur celebratin’ mine’s 2nd birthday.

Chatting Cats: A Little of This & A Little of That

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s never been so tired of a season in all mine’s 2 years. I’s so ready fur this Spring to show up. I’s beginnin’ to think she’s just a myth or somethin’. Have any of you seen her? 

 

 Dezi lays on scratcher with mouth open

 

 

 

          RaenaBelle, what in the world are you meowin’ ‘bout now? In all your 2 years huh? Do you even ‘member Spring from last year? 

 

 Raena stands atop the scratcher in front of the tv

 

 

 

Well, not ‘zactly sissy, but I’s heard she brings warmer weather. You know, strollin’ weather. Not too hot, not too cold but just right. 

 

          Yeah, ‘bout that just right Raena, we live in the South where there’s really no such thing as just right. We may only see a couple of days of Spring befur Summer arrives with all her heat and humidity. (Dezi hears something besides the rain on the walk and runs to the door to look out. She sees the manager coming up the walk with a huge umbrella and hisses and runs for cover. Raena runs after her while looking back towards the door.

 

 Raena steps from tv stand to chair

 

 

 

Wait fur me sissy. Where are we goin’? (Mommy A goes to the door to be given a notice for a 2nd inspection of the month on next Monday. Raena turns around and crawls up into mommy A’s lap and begins a grooming session.) hmmmpht  Another inspection mommy? I’s just don’t unnerstand why these peeps can’t just leave us alone. Who else in the world has intruders in their house every month, sometimes more than once?!! Guess you’ll have to do some cleanin’ mommy. 

 

 Dezi stands on tip of stroller-selfie

 

 

 

          (Dezi returns to the living room to finish her breakfast. Raena jumps down and eats beside her) Me’s never unnerstood all these inspections either Raena. ‘Course, mommy did learn that they can’t legally intrude more than once a month, so we’ll have to see what happens next week. Anyways, how ‘bout a little birthday meow. Since we were outta town on your birthday and it rained so you didn’t get to do anythin’ special, mommy and me decided we’d have a little celebration fur ya’ this Sunday. It would’a been me’s sis Lexi’s birthday. Since she went to heaven, me’s sure she wouldn’t mind us celebratin’ your life on her special day. We’ll just have a small pawrty and then really throw a bash fur your Gotchaday in June. 

 

That sounds pawsum sissy. I’s sure wish I’s could’a met your sis Lexi. She sounds really amazin’. 

 

Dezi sits pretty in front of fireplace

 

 

 

          She was Raena. Mommy says God decided He needed her more than we did and took her back to heaven. Least she’s not sick or in pain anymore. Me really misses her sometimes, but me’s fankful fur the time me did have with her. So, we’ll plan a small pawrty fur Sunday. All of our furiends are invited and mommy says she’ll give us extra treats and playtime.

This is gonna be fun, sissy. I’s can’t hardly wait. Maybe even Spring will show up. Let’s finish brekky. All this rain makes me wanna take a nap. 

 

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

Blest Resurrection Sunday: The Greatest Blessing Ever

RaenaBelle, hurry up!!! Do you know what today is? It’s Resurrection Sunday!!! Today’s the most Blest Sunday there is. We celebrate the fact that Jesus rose from the dead all those years ago so that all could be saved from their sins and spend eternity in heaven ‘stead of hell. No greater Blessing has ever been given.

          You’re right sissy. It’s purretty amazin’ that God could luvs this world so much that He would send Jesus to die fur us. A world so full of turmoil and evil. Even so, He saw the good and wanted to make sure that everypawdy had the oppurrtunity to turn away from their evil ways and be what He created them to be; children of God. 

 

 Dezi and Raena with the Easter cross frame with He is Risen

 

 

 

Yep Raena, that’s some kind of luv alright. You know, we’re always meowin’ that Blessings come in many forms, all ya’ have to do is take a minute to see ‘em. Each day is a Blessing that no one is guaranteed. The very air that we breathe, even the storms we don’t like are Blessings. As most everpawdy knows, we’ve been really goin’ thru it lately. But, no matter how bad things may look, there’s always a Blessing to give fanks fur. 

 

 Raena gets loving in mommy A's lap

Lap luvvin’ time is a pawsum Blessing. I’s do luvs mine’s mommy.

 

 

          Fur sure sissy. We’ve got a pawsum luvvin’ mommy, a roof over our heads, good food in our bellehs, the greatest furiends in the universe and a new day to meow ‘bout how much we luvs everypawdy. Ya’ know sissy, I’s was kind’a wonderin’ just what this Easter bunny and huntin’ colored eggs have to do with anythin’?. 

 

 Dezi lays in the liberty cat tree

Our pawsum cat tree, what a Blessing.

 

 

Well Raena, they don’t really have anythin’ to do with the resurrection of Jesus; but, the bunny and those colored eggs symbolize furtility and new beginnings. These were symbols used by the pagans of old and just got incor-purrated into Resurrection Sunday a long long time ago. We don’t actually celebrate that way, but lots of peeps do. Mommy says when she was younger, Easter also meant that she got a new dress fur church and peeps in general could put away their old dark wintry clothes and start wearin’ pastels and whites. Did you know there was a time when nopaawdy wore white till Easter time each year? 

 

 Raena stands on scratcher with paw lifted

 

 

 

          Humans sure have some strange customs, sissy. Guess we would’a been outta fashion what with all our white furs. Anyways, it doesn’t really matter how one celebrates today, we purray that you all have a Blest Resurrection Sunday/Easter.

 

We sure do Raena. And meowin’ of Blessings, we received a few material ones this past week that we need to give fanks fur. Fank you awnty Susan fur the green papers. They are always purreciated. 

 

 Raena checks out all the goodies Cindy sent in the gift box

A gift box fur mommy is a welcome Blessing

 

 

          Yep sissy, and fanky fank ya’ to awnty Cindy and angel Maggie Meme fur the pawsum boxes. They were full of yummy goodies. The foto doesn’t show everythin’. There was 2 full boxes of goodies. Mommy even shared a string cheese with me. I’s do luvs me some cheese. MOL Not as much as I’s luvs rabbit, but it’s fur sure in mine’s top ten fave foods.

 

And did you see those cutesy little socklettes they sent to mommy, Raena? She luvved ‘em.

 

          And don’t furget the green papers, sissy. They wanna help us get to BlogPaws almost as much as we wanna go.

We’ve got our paws crossed that’s fur sure. Anyways, we need to wrap this up. It’s the last day of Campmeetin’ at our church. We are fur sure the most Blest kitties in the universe. Fank you all fur bein’ our furiends and pawrt of our family. We luv you all and purray that God will meet your every need. As always, we wanna remind you to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives.
