Please Take Care of Mommy

Well by the time you read this, I will be in heaven with minez brofurs and Shad awaitin’ the time when mommy and sis Dezi join us; and mommy will be a mess. Like my brofurs who have gone befur me, I didn’t wanna leave mommy. My heart didn’t wanna let go. But my body just couldn’t keep up. I just kept getting weaker and weaker. Fankfully sis Dezi has learned all I could teach her and she can now pass on that knowledge to her new sisfur and help mate to take care of mommy. Least that’z after she getz over the confusion. I hadn’t been able to drive mommy’s wheelchair fur a few weeks, but I could still give her massages and help Dezi get mommy outta bed. I even tried to help sis Dezi with mommy in the shower today; I just wasn’t strong enuff to get in the tub. Even tho’ mommy cried and would tell me to save my strength I just couldn’t let down on all my duties. I will always be a Service cat. I luv my mommy so much and she gave me the beztezt life a kitty could have ever asked fur. Ya’ know I wasn’t s‘posed to live, so havin’ almost 17 years of luvs and cuddles? Well what more could a motherless kit have asked fur? Getting’ old shure wasn’t fun, and havin’ kidney disease on top of it just wasn’t fair. But mommy always said life wasn’t fair and that we just had to make the beztezt of what we had. My mommy is very wise and cuz of her and her attitude, I had a little more than a year of life after that dreaded diagnosis.

Lexi with mouth open meowing on 3/9/2016

In my last year I got to go on a great adventure called BlogPaws. And cuz of all my wunnerful unkles and awnties I got lots of toys, cat trees, noms, treats and most of all lots and lots of luvs. You know I luvs you all very very much; and I’z countin’ on ya’ to take care of mommy, sis Dezi and whoever comes to live with them next. I know that mommys heart is breakin’ right now, and she feels so terribly guilty fur havin’ to get another kitty. But she has so much luv to give it wouldn’t be fair to ask her not to share it. And Dezi needs the help. Trust me. I’z taught her all I know but the girl can be a bit daft sometimes. And her attention span can sometimes wane. And then of course, mommy ain’t getting’ any younger, spryer or nimbler, so she’s gunna need a lot of help in the years to come.

So I guess I should get to my last will and testament huh? To my sweet bootyful sisfur Dezi…I really do luv ya’ sis. I leave you with our mommy and her heart. Her hearts broken right now, so be gentle. She luvs you more than her own life, just as she luvs me. And she will awlways do what’s beztezt fur ya’ and never ever leave ya’. Take good care of her, yous the head cat in charge now. Pass along the lessons I taught ya’ and find that happy balance to let your new helper know you luv ‘em but that you are the Queen. And Dezi, do luv them, cuz mommy’s gonna need you both like she needed you and me.

To all our sweet dear furiends, awnties and unkles…Remember, I luvs you awl so much I could never really express how I feel in mere words. But trust me, the luvs run deep; and mommy and sis Dezi luvs ya’ the same. These last couple of years have been so amazin’. I never knew there were so many pawsum peeps still left in the world. Fank you so very much fur all you did fur me and my furmily. I only hope and purray you will continue to luv mommy and sis Dezi. And when they innerduce Dezi’s new helper, I purray you luv her too. She’s gonna have to be speshul to put up with Dezi. (mol)

Young teenager Lexi

To my successor…I leave you mommy, sis Dezi and all our wunnerful furiends. Be patient with them, they’re goin’ thru a tough time right now, but they luv you and will give you the beztezt life ever. Give mommy all your luv and she’ll return it in spades. You’re gonna get lots of cuddles and luv. And yes, you can sleep on the big bed. In fact you’ll be ‘spected to sleep there. Mommy’s happiest when she’s surrounded by furry purrers. The only place that be off limits is the kitchen counter. Dezi is a real Southern Belle Prima Donna and now that she’s the Queen, she’s purrobly gonna have the big head fur a while; but just hang in there, she’s a great sisfur and has so much to teach you. And when she luvs, she luvs with her whole bein’. You may not realize it yet, but you hit the jackpot.

Last but certainly not da least, mommy. I luv you so much mommy. I’z so sorry I had to leave you; I wanted to be with you furever and ever and someday we will be. Fank you fur fightin’ fur me when I was a baby. Fank you fur the life you gave me. And fanks fur fightin’ fur me in the end. You awlway worried that you didn’t give me enuff cuz you didn’t have money. But mommy, all I ever needed was the luv you gave me. And that you did. I was so blest to have you fur my mommy. My life was so full of luvs and adventure. And you never broke your purromisse…you Never left me behind. Havin’ you with me at the end was my life comin’ full circle. I know that tellin’ ya’ not to cry won’t work. But ifin ya’ can manage thru the tears to ‘member my life, and celebrate it with joy. Mommy we had almost 17 full years together. I’z sorry I couldn’t hold out another month, my heart was strong but my body just gave out. I was so tired. Purrlease luvs me enuff to luvs again. You have so much luvs to give. I leave you with Dezi. Mommy she’s a sensitive one you know and you gotta bounce back or she won’t. She needs you to be strong. Even broken, mommy, your heart is so full there’s purrlenty of room fur another luv. I know that in my last days when you thought I wasn’t lissenin’ you told God to make Dezi stronger cuz no other kitty would be able to do what I have done fur you. And that’s just not true. Somewhere is the purrfect kitty just waitin’ fur you. I will always be with you in your thoughts and memories. And I will be waitin’ here in heaven fur you when it’z your time.

I Leave You With

 

Mommy, I leave you my heart, I know yours is broken.

Mine is purrfect, You filled it with love.

Mommy, I leave you my eyes, I know yours are filled with tears.

Mine see purrfectly, Cuz they see from my heart.

Mommy I leave you with the comfort you once gave to me,

It will keep you safe, as you did for me.

I gave you my life, and would gladly do it again.

Because the life you gave me, was full of love with no end.

I asked God to give you peace,

And to wrap you in His arms;

The way you cradled me,

So tender and warm.

I asked the breeze, to blow gently in your ear;

The way you used to whisper, That you’d always be near.

I asked the sun, to shine and warm your face.

The way your smile did for me

When you looked my way.

I asked the moon to blanket you each night

The way you cuddled me and held me so tight.

When you feel lonely,

Remember me with joy.

Remember I was always happy

Just being by your side.

When everything grows quiet and still,

And the light gives way to the night

Remember, you’re never alone,

I’m right there by your side.

Remember our love, so purrfect and pure

It’s the kind that cannot die.

You can’t see me with your physical eyes,

But in your heart, I’ll always be alive.

A High 3/9/16

 

What a life I lived. I am one blest kitty fur shure. Fank you mommy and fank you all.

 

Mommy A here, first I want to thank you all for loving my baby. She loved hearing from you. I read all the comments to the girls and show them photos of all their friends. You’d be surprised how many they recognize. Lexi fought a good fight and I fought even when she gave up. In the end, she just couldn’t go on. So I had to be strong enough to let her go. I must tell you this was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. My heart isn’t just broken, it’s shattered into a million pieces. Lexi was a service cat to her last breath. She just couldn’t stop herself and save her strength. My life will never be the same. She will live on in my heart and memories. I know that we are blest, and the blessing in this is that Lexi is no longer in any pain. She’s once again, young and healthy and free of care. My heart hasn’t quite gotten to this realization yet, but we want to celebrate her life. She loved with her whole being and gave all she had. And that’s what we want to remember.

I want to thank all of you for your help throughout Lexi’s illness. Thank you for all the prayers and financial help, and all the goodies the girls have gotten. I’m just numb right now. Lexi was the longest relationship I’ve ever had. For nearly 17 years I’ve done nothing without her. She has been my faithful companion for so long I can’t remember a time when she wasn’t here. I had to be helped out of the office because I didn’t know how to leave without her. I just feel empty inside, like part of me is missing. A lot of you understand how I feel right now, and for those who don’t, I’m sorry you’ve never truly had the love an animal can give. Altho’ I feel lost, I wouldn’t trade a minute of the last 17 years. I am so blest that she chose me to be her mommy. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

 

With that, one last time, I will ask you to purrlease take care of mommy and sis Dezi. And mommy, you and Dezi take care of each other. It’s not goodbye, but I’ll see you again.

 

And I leave all of you with……..Be Blest!!!

The Wilderness On My Plate

Hey y’all it’z Lexi. Yep I’z got a review fur ya’ today. Dat’z rite sis Dezi and me both are Chewy bloggerz and today I’z gunna tell ya’ ‘bout da Blue Wilderness Tasty Toppers. Chewy sent us a whole case of these little yums to try out. Mommy chose da tasty duck morsels in a savory gravy fur me to try.

#Lexi sitting on top of #Chewy box

 

logo.20130121chewy

Da Tasty Morsels come in 4 flavors and are available fur dogs too. They come in 3 ounce packets and have minimal ingredientz. They’re all grain free. Now you might be sayin’ to yourself, 3 ounces, Y dat’z a whole meal fur minez kitty. And you wuld be rite, but these topperz are not complete and balanced so they can be fed as topperz on your regular food, as a treat, or an occasional substitute. But your kitty or doggy needz all da extra vitaminz and minerals and oils in balanced mealz. So these toppperz don’t replace kittiez food, but merely enhancez it.

#Dezi posing by the case of Blue Wilderness Tasty morsels

You wanna know what I think ‘bout it don’t ya’? It’z a little rich, but mozt duck iz. And I lubz me sum duck. So yep you guessed it, I give it 4 pawz up. Mommy can top my mealz with these any time. I know, I know, you wanna know what mommy thinkz. So I’z gunna let her tell ya’.

#china bowl with Blue wilderness Tasty morsels cat food

Yes it’s Blue and given Dezi’s recent issues I wouldn’t let her have it. But Lexi has always eaten a variety of food with no problems. Although since being diagnosed with kidney disease she tires of foods quickly so I’m always on the look out for something to entice her to eat. Lexi has always liked bites in gravy so these Tasty Toppers are perfect for her. The slices are just about the right size and the gravy is a thin au jus. They are made here in the U.S. and that’s always a plus. Meat being the first ingredient is a must in our house so I give these Tasty Toppers 2 thumbs up as a supplement for Lexi.

Fankz mommy. You can pick these up from Chewy fur ‘bout $30.00, $40.00 fur da doggies. And ifin you choose autoship, you’ll get a little discount. All orders $49.00 and over ship free and arrive at your house in 1-2 dayz. You can make changez to your autoship any time you want and can delay or cancel at anytime as well. Chewy has a flat rate shippin’ fur all orders under $49.00 and da bestezt customer service around. And don’t worry ifin your pet won’t eat sumthin’ you bought, Chewy will take care of ya’.

With Christmas rite around da corner and knowin’ you wanna get your furry furmily member a few gifts too, why don’t you check out Chewy. they have a wide variety of noms, treats, toys and supplies. And they’ve got great pricez. And you can still get your order afur Christmas. As always we only tell da truth and received no compensation but da case of noms.

Lexi and Dezi

Dear Santa Paws

Dear Santa Paws,

Lexi in green Chrristmas frame

It’z Lexi, you know Dezi’z big sisfur. Well, she’z purrobably bigger than me wiff all dat floof, but I’z older. She wanted to write her own letter thiz year so mommy sed we kuld each give ya’ a holler. I know you’re pawful bizee at thiz time of year so I won’t keep you long, but I do have a few requestz. Dezi mentioned dat a lot of our furiendz have had a ruff year and a vizit from you wuld really cheer ‘em right up. I know all our kitty furiendz wuld enjoy sum nip and treatz and maybe even a few new toyz. Those nip nana’s are at da top of da lizt. We fink mommy lozt ourz, but they sure are great. Several of them don’t have a cat tree and az Dezi purrobably told ya’, we really lubz ourz. A good cat tree goez a long way to makin’ a cat happy. Our doggy furiendz like to chew; and let me tell ya’ they can never get too many chew toyz. Anywayz, mozt of them will purrobably write ya’, so I juzt azk dat ya’ take speshul notice, cuz they’ve all been real good thiz year.

 

Ya’ know we never met till a kupple yearz ago so maybe you don’t know ‘bout my beginninz. I waz born in a back yard and lozt my kitty mommy at da same time. Ifin not fur mommy I wulda been dead or at bezt a shelter kitty. Ya’ know it’z juzt not fair dat sum of us get furever homez and sum don’t. I sure hope you can help find furever homez fur all thoze amazin’ shelter anipalz. None of them belong in cagez and all of ‘em deserve to be lubbed. They ain’t in shelterz cuz they’ve been bad. They juzt got dealt a bad hand thru no fault of their own. Da shelterz kuld all uze sum extra green paperz to help take care of all their chargez, and food and litter and treatz. They even need thingz like paper towelz, real towelz, cleanin’ suppliez and volunteerz. Shelterz and rescuez alwayz need more volunteerz. So ifin you kuld sprinkle sum of dat holiday cheer duzt on sum folkz and give ‘em da idea to help out, dat wuld be purretty pawsum.

 

Then there’z thoze kittiez what have to live outside all da time. Again, it’z not their fault. Truzt me, no kitty truly wantz to be outside in da freezin’ cold or burnin’ hot. They don’t like starvin’ and bein’ afraid all da time. There’z a lot of pawsum peepz out there what do a lot fur da feral and stray kittiez, but like everypawdy elze, they need green paperz, food and more help too. And so many communitiez still don’t recognize dat TNR iz da beztezt way to deal wiff da feral pawpulationz and juzt wanna kill every kitty they see. Maybe sum of dat holiday cheer duzt wuld do them sum good too. We don’t have any money and we know peepz gotta pay fur da giftz you bring; but ifin you kuld make an exception just thiz once and give all thoze peepz what help da feralz and strayz a little sumfin’ extra and a meowzy big fank you from us, I wuld be extremely grateful. Those peepz go out to tend their coloniez no matter what be goin’ on in their livez or wiff da weather and rarely get even a nod.

 

Like Dezi sed, we don’t spect you’ll be stoppin’ by our place, but I’ll be out wiff Dezi wavin’ at ya’ as  you pass by. I don’t know ifin it’z sumfin’ you can do, but I have da beztezt mommy in da univerze and she duz so much fur Dezi and me and we wuld so like our mommy to feel special fur a day. I really hit da jackpot when I found mommy. Now dat I have dat kidney diseaze mommy worriez all da time. I sure wish you kuld stop dat, but I don’t think that’s your department Santa. Mommy getz me and Dezi da beztezt food she can afford and offen goez wiffout herself to do it. She sez she duzn’t mind and I can tell ya’ she duzn’t. She wuld never complain cuz she lubz us too much. Cuz of her I don’t really have need of anything. I iz blezt and I know it.

 

We had sum tuff timez thiz year and needed help getting’ to da VET or getting’ thoze nomz, and sum of our pawsum furiendz stepped up to help. I sure hope you can give them all a little sumfin’ extra. We sure do purreshayte ‘em. We don’t know where we’d be wiffout all our amazin’ furiendz. We sure hope you will fill up their Christmas wish listz. I’ll be signin’ off fur now, but be sure ya’ take a second and third look at our furiendz listz and do your beztezt to fill ‘em. We’ll be sendin’ purrayerz to all and wavin’ at ya’ from da porch. I’ll be da one wiff da green eyez by da crazy Southern Belle Ragdoll. Juzt kiddin’, I’z hit da jackpot wiff minez sisfur too. Dezi iz da beztezt. Anywayz, give minez lubb to everypawdy there and take care.
