Chatting Cats: Happy Independence Day

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s been readin’ up on this Independence day that we’re celebratin’ today here in the U.S.. Ya’ know, what I’s read made me so purroud to be an American kitty, and even brought a few tears to mine’s eyes. We are so Blest to have had such wise fore fathers who recognized God had created them and gave them the freedom to choose how to live and govern. This great Country was born out of the desire to escape tyranny.

          That’s right Raena. And, ‘stead of creatin’ a government with a king or a dictator, they decided our government should be one that’s ruled by the people it serves. Unfurtunately, some of the repurrsentatives that have been elected don’t always follow the wishes of the people they repurrsent. It’s a real shame when this happens. That bein’ meowed, just like any other employee, those repurrsentatives can be voted out and new ones voted in.

We thought it was a cool coincidence that we took this foto this

meownin’, July 4th and the foto nummer is 1776. We just had to post it.

 

 

 

Yep sissy, and I’s also learned that no where else can peeps talk so badly ‘bout their reps without dire consequences. Throughout history peeps have been jailed and even killed fur speakin’ out against their leaders/government. But here in the U.S., peeps are free to say whatever they want, and the news sure is takin’ advantage of that lately. The latest bein’ all this talk ‘bout refugees bein’ sepurrated from their families and held in cages. They wanna blame President Trump and say it’s all his fault. Thing is, none of this started with him, and those refugees are actually bein’ treated better now than they were unner furmer administrations. And unlike us anipals when we have no home, they’re not bein’ held in cages. That’s fanky fanks to President Trump.

          Those are good points Raena, but we’re not here to meow ‘bout pawlitics today. We’re here to celebrate the signin’ of the Declaration of Independence and our freedom from tyranny. We live in the greatest Country in this Universe. God Bless America!!!

 

Raena sits on perch looking back

 

 

 

You’re right sissy. Ifin anypawdy’s innerested in readin’ that amazin’ document that brought ‘bout this Country’s freedom, I’s think wikipedia breaks it down nicely here. It also gives some background and other innerestin’ infurmation ‘bout that time in our history. You know the one thing I’s didn’t find in mine’s research? I’s didn’t find that any of our fore fathers set off fireworks that day. So, I’s thinkin’ we oughtta tell everypawdy, no fireworks this year. What do you think sissy? 

 

          Me thinks that’s a great idea Raena. Unfurtunately, me doesn’t think anypawdy’s gonna pay attention to us. But, did you see the new toy mommy got us to keep our minds off those noisy boomers? It’s kind’a like those hexbugs we like so much but bigger. Mommy says she hopes it stays out from unner the oven and fridge a bit better.

Really sissy? Do we have to wait fur the boomers to start befur we can play with it? I’s wanna play with it now.

Happy Independence Day

 

 

 

          Guess you can ask mommy, Raena. But, me thinks we oughtta finish brekky furst. Anyways, we should wish everypawdy a Happy Independence day and God Bless America!!!

God Bless America!!!

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.

          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.

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!!!

Blest Sunday: Chatting Cats: Sis Boom Bye? It’s July

 

dw-Dezi bathes while laying on a Yeowww nip toy 9512


(
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.

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

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. 

 

 Dezi's selfie while laying on arm of the chair

 

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. And, ‘member to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives.
