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?.

You’ve brought me joy and happiness and so much love. I pray and ask God each day to give you a long and happy life with me. I can’t ever imagine a day without you in it. I also want to thank all of our friends for their love and support and for loving my girls. We pray every day and ask God to bless you and meet your every need.

Blest Sunday: A Very Special Thank You

MeOW  C’mon Raena, it’s Blest Sunday, and we have lots of things to meow ‘bout today. As you know, today is mommy’s birthday and Memorial day weekend. This month has just flown by.

          It sure has sissy. How old do ya’ think mommy is? Do ya’ reckon she’ll tell us this year? 

 

Dezi looks at camera while sitting on cat scratcher

 

 

 

All me knows Raena is that she’s old, as in wrinkles and gray hair and creakin’ bones old. Me’s not sure even she ‘members how old she is Raena. Ya’ know, they say the memory’s the furst thing to go. MOL 

 

Raena lays under pet cot from KH

 

 

 

          Oh sissy, I’s don’t think mommy would find that so funny. But, I’s do agree that mommy’s memory ain’t what it used to be. Anyways, I’s don’t really care how old she is, I’s just glad she’s our mommy. I’s do luvs her whole bunches. You know she always puts us furst. Y, she got some green papers fur her birthday and ended up spendin’ most of ‘em on us. Seems that Drs. Foster and Smith place had our Primal Freeze Dried Rabbit noms on sale fur half purrice. We don’t think we’ve ever seen ‘em that cheap anywhere. So, mommy used her special money to get us a few bags.

 

Birthday card from Ingrid, Pipo and Dalton

Fank you awnty Ingrid, Pipo and Dalton.

 

 

 

 

Yep Raena, we do have a good mommy, that’s fur sure. We do wanna say a meowsy big Fank you to awnty Vonda, awnty Susan, awnty Anonymous, and awnty Ingrid, Pipo and Dalton fur mommy’s birthday money. Mommy cried a lot of happy tears this past week.

 

Dezi and Raena sniff the maranta from Ellen for mommy A's birthday

 

 

 

          She did sissy. And then she cried some more when she got the box from my kitty godmommy awnty Ellen. Mommy luvs exotic house plants. Rumor is that she used to have a whole house full. Anyways, one of her favorite plants is the maranta, better known as the purrayer plant cuz it closes it’s leaves at night to resemble praying hands. When mommy opened up the box from awnty Ellen, she saw the purrettiest purrple leaves pawppin’ out all over the place. ‘Course we had to check it out too. We could smell somethin’ emanatin’ from inside that box that really caught our attention. Sure nuff, awnty Ellen hadn’t furgotten ‘bout us. We got one of those furtastic pieces of silvervine toast each. I’s ‘member when Sammy modeled his fur their posty. That awnty Ellen is so clever. Who would’a thought ‘bout makin’ silvervine toast? 

 

Dezi and Raena shiff the maranta gift from ellen for Mommy A's birthday

 

 

 

Me sure did enjoy that toasty Raena. You’re right ‘bout awnty Ellen. She is so very talented. We luv all her Made with Luv goodies. You slobbered all over your toasty and then tried to steal me’s one. Hmmmpht That wasn’t happenin’. MOL 

 

Raena rolls around on the silvervine toast from Ellen

 

 

 

          You were s’posed to share sissy. ‘Stead, you flopped your floofy big hiney down on your toasty and hid it.

 

Dezi rolls around on silvervine toast from Ellen

Oh divine silvervine, me luvs you.

 

 

 

You had your own Raena, and me didn’t want slobber all over me’s toasty piece. Fank you soooooooooooooo much fur includin’ us awnty Ellen. The silvervine toast was a big hit. 

 

Raena plays with silvervine toast

 

 

 

          Sure nuff. Fanky fank you awnty Ellen. Sissy, can you x’plain a bit ‘bout Memorial day? Peeps keep sayin’ happy memorial day and I’s don’t know what’s so happy ‘bout it. 

 

Dezi plays with silvervine toast from Ellen

 

 

 

Yeah Raena, me doesn’t get the happy pawrt either, me thinks peeps just don’t know what else to say. Memorial day is the day set aside to pay homage to those men, women and anipals that died while serving in the military. Me knows fur sure, that we ‘member them and their families every single day. Ifin not fur them, our country and way of life wouldn’t exist. The freedoms we have, wouldn’t exist. This country is great because of those willing to fight and die to make it so. No where else in this world has the freedoms and rights that the U.S. does. And shame on those who want to tear it down. The next time you complain about the government or somebody saying/posting something you don’t like or agree with, remember, you have the right to do that because someone died to make it so.

 

Raena plays with silvervine toast cat toy

 

 

 

          I’s sure am fanky fankful fur all those who gave their lives so we could live in such a pawsum country sissy. I’s so fanky fankful fur their families who suffered loss, fur the children who lost mothers or fathers to wars on distant shores. Sometimes peeps furget, the soldier serving and fighting should be at the top of our purrayer list, but their family serves as well. So, to all those soldiers who never came home, we salute you and purromiss not to take the freedoms your lives bought us fur granted.

Yep Raena, we are blest to have been born in the U.S. and mommy and me join you in saluting each and every soldier. Thank you fur your service and your sacrifice. And to all those Vets and currently serving, we fank you as well. God Bless America. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives.

          We’re also joinin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. We are so Blest and wanna fanky fank you all fur bein’ our furiends. We luvs you all bunches and bunches.

 

Me couldn’t have meowed it better Raena. C’mon, let’s go give mommy some more birthday cuddles. 

 

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

Chatting Cats: Raena’s KitNip Birthday Box

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. It’s been so crazy ‘round here lately and we’re so far behind, I’s don’t think we’ll ever get all caught up. Then mommy goes and says somethin’ like “All caught up is a relative statement, baby. Sometimes, life has to take precedence over play. If we want to keep a roof over our heads, then mommy has things she needs to do to keep that roof. And that sometimes means spending time running errands, making copies, calls and getting together all pertinent paperwork to re-certify our lease.” Hmmmpht How am I’s s’posed to argue with that? 

 

Dezi sits atop the liberty cat tree and Raena lays on the top ledge

 

 

 

          You’re not Raena, you’re just s’posed to accept it and be glad that mommy takes good care of us. Now, me thought we were gonna meow ‘bout that box we got just in time fur your Birthday last month.

 

Raena checks out the the KitNip box

 

 

 

We are sissy, I’s was just makin’ sure mommy knows how furustrated I’s am ‘bout all the time she’s spendin’ doin’ things that don’t include us havin’ fun or visitin’ our furiends. But, you’re right, that was a purretty fun box we got. The peeps at Kit Nip Box sent us one of their pawsum subscription boxes just in time fur mine’s Birthday. Unlike mommy with her birthday purresent, I’s had to wait to open mine’s.

 

          Why don’t we meow a bit ‘bout the KitNip Box befur we get to what was inside. 

 

KitNip box

 

 

 

Good idea sissy. The KitNip Box is a monthly subscription box filled with goodies fur the felines in your home. They have 2 different box plans, $19.99 a month and $29.99 a month. Fur $19.99 you get 5 purroducts hand picked fur kitty and 7 in the $29.99 box. Boxes are shipped out on the 1st and 15th of each month and your credit card is charged 1 – 7 days prior to each shipment. They currently ship boxes to addresses in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia. Ifin ya’ live somewhere else, they say to call their customer service number to see what they can do to get a box to ya’. Shippin’ is furee fur the U.S. and $6.95 – $7.95 fur other countries.

 

Dezi sniffs toys from the KitNip box

 

 

 

          Don’t furget to meow ‘bout the charity work Raena. Each month the KitNip Box peeps donate a portion of the proceeds and products to shelters, rescues, TNR efforts and other feline welfare causes, like the Paw Project, Wayside Waifs, SAAP and more. Y, any organization can apply fur help just by contactin’ ‘em.

 

Raena sniffs the Pure Bites minnow treats

 

 

 

We always luvs it when a company helps out those kitties less furtunate than us, don’t we sissy?. Anyways, let’s get on with the goodies inside that box. Our box had 5 toys and a bag of Pure Bites freeze dried fish treats; minnows the bag said. Let me tell ya’ those were the biggest minnows ever. Mommy says she used to fish and use minnows as bait, but, she’d never seen one as big as these. Seems the whole fish was freeze dried and cut into large chunks…too big fur us so mommy had to break up a piece befur we’d even look at it. As most of ya’ know, we’re not really fish eaters here and these treats were no x’ception. Uh huh, We weren’t havin’ ‘em. On to the toys. There was a couple different mousies that are just the right size fur carryin’ ‘round and playin’ with. And, there was a new wand toy with a soft plushie at the end. 

 

Dezi turns her head away from the Pure Bites Minnow treat

That’s a big ole chunk ‘o minnow.

 

 

 

          Did you see the umbrella Raena? Me still hasn’t figgered out what we’re s’posed to do with that?. Me kind’a liked the big yellow cat face. Mommy needs to soak it in some nip or silvervine and then it’ll be just purrfect to roll ‘round on. Ya’ know, as subscription boxes go, the KitNip box is okay. Me would give it 2 paws up, mostly cuz they give back to feline charities.

 

We received the KitNip Box in exchange for our honest opinion. As always, we tell it like we see it and only bring products we use or have tried and feel would be of interest to you, our readers and friends. All opinions expressed here are our own. 

 

Yeah sissy, I’s agree. We’re purretty spoiled and have some of the bestest toys on the meow-kit. But, we think this would make a great gift fur any kitty in your life. I’s would give it 2 paws up as well. Mommy said she thought it was a bit overpriced, but it’s on purr/par with all the other subscription boxes out there. We were really x’cited that the peeps at KitNip Box are lettin’ our furiends and readers save 15% off their furst box when they use our special coupon code: DEZIZ. I’s sure did ‘purreciate receivin’ our box fur mine’s birthday. ‘Course I’s luvs gettin’ gifts any day of the week. Meowin’ of Birthdays, I’s hope we get somethin’ special fur mommy’s Birthday this weekend. You did meow that mommy celebrates us on her special days, right sissy?

 

Dezi looks over the toys from the KitNip box

 

 

 

          She does Raena, but we should purrobably try to do somethin’ nice fur her too. Let’s go put our heads together and see what we can come up with. 

 

I’s right behind ya’, sissy. I’s know the furst thing we can do is avoid purrjectile vomitin’. Anyways, we’ll see ya’ll soon. 

 

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