Me too Raena, me too. We wanna say a meowsy big fank you to everypawdy/kitty/doggy that sent us cards and gifts. Fanks to those who sent mommy foods fur Christmas and thru out this past year. Fank you to those who sent gift cards and paypal greenies. We have so many angels. We fank you all fur bein’ our furiends.

The Day Before Christmas

 

It was the day before Christmas,

in our little house.

Sweet Dezi lay nappin’,

while Raena played with last year’s nip mouse.

Their stockings were hung

on the hutch way up high,

so they couldn’t reach them,

not even with their best try.

Clothes in the washer

a full dryer too.

Like any other day,

there’s lots of work left to do.

Turkey tom lurkey’s

thawin’ in the fridge

thanks to LouLou,

our friend who speaks French.

We’re singin’ Christmas carols

‘round the fake fire,

wonderin’ if sweet Raena

will ever get tired.

The forecast is great

for those of us who don’t like snow.

The sun will be shining

even tho’ it’ll be cold.

I sip one last cup of coffee

as night draws near,

looking at photos

reminiscing over the past year.

I carry the girls

to bed to tuck in.

We say our prayers

and include all our friends.

It’s Christmas,

the happiest time of the year.

There’s just a few more hours left

of holiday cheer.

I look at my girls

sleeping next to me,

How blest I am

How blest are we.

I silently pray

peace and goodwill to all.

And whisper Merry Christmas,

Merry Christmas to ya’ll.

Blest Sunday: My Life Wouldn’t Be the Same

Welcome to a very special Blest Sunday. As ya’ll know, we luv blest Sunday’s, but today is even more special. Today, is Mother’s day. We know this day is all ‘bout women who have 2 legged children. But what ‘bout those women who fur whatever reason don’t have 2 legged children? Or those who gave their luv to a child who didn’t have any? And those like mommy, who only have furry four legged kids? Well, we say ifin you’ve ever luvved and nurtured a young’un, be it furred or non furred, you’re a mother.

 

 Dezi poping out of an envelope surrounded by lilies and roses in a Mother's day card

 

You’ve no doubt gone without at one time or another to make things better fur that young’un. You’ve laffed whether they were funny or not, and cried when they were hurt. You felt purride in their accomplishments and joy in their happiness. And gave fanks at the end of each day that they were close to you.

 

          That’s right sissy. We salute all mother’s today and every day fur your unconditional luvs. We fanky fank you fur puttin’ us young’un’s befur yourself, and fur givin’ us the most pawsumest life. 

 

Yep Raena, you got that right. We wrote a little poem fur all the mother’s of furries every where. We realize that not all furry children can do the things we do but we know they luv their mommies just as much as we luv ours. We’ll be givin’ mommy lots of extra luv and massages today. But befur we get started we wanted to wish you all the most Blest and Happy Mother’s Day ever!

 

My Life Wouldn’t Be The Same

Without you, my life wouldn’t be the same.

Maybe you found me, looking starved and scroungy on the streets.

Maybe you found me hiding in a cage

At some shelter, that took me in.

Maybe you found me online

Being fostered by a caring human.

No matter how you found me…

You Did!!!

My life changed that day,

And so did yours.

I’m so happy you chose me.

Out of all the kitties in the world

You looked at me

And saw my inner beauty.

You saw passed my sad eyes,

My dingy fur and even my fear.

Now, I wait to hear your voice calling my name,

To feel your gentle caress on my clean shiny furs.

I watch for you from the window sill when you’re away

I wait patiently for your lap when you sit down.

My purr says I Love You

My meow says I need you

Without you, my life wouldn’t be the same.

          Oh sissy, we are such Blest kitty girls. Our lives fur sure wouldn’t be the same without mommy and all our furtabulous furiends. ‘Member to take a minute today and every day to give Fanky fanks fur the blessings in your life. We’re joinin’ the Kitties Blue fur a special Mother’s Day Sunday Selfies. Mommy had plans to take some selfies with us fur today. She hennaed all that gray hair away and put on her made up face and grabbed the camera and then us.

  

OMC  Raena, was that ever a fun exercise. Mommy must’a took a hunnerd fotos. Then, she loaded ‘em into the catputer to see what we had, and… 

 

          Oh sissy, did you see the one of just our ears and mommy’s neck? Mommy may be good at a lot of things, but selfie takin’ ain’t one of ‘em. MOL 

 

 Dezi and Raena in hearts with red and white roses for Mother's day

 

You’re right ‘bout that Raena. But it was fun tryin’ to take selfies with mommy. Anytime we can spend bein’ close to mommy is a good time. Let’s wrap this up, and get mommy’s special day started.

 

          I’s right behind ya’ sissy. I’s just wanted to remind everypawdy that part 2 of our innerview with Valentine can be read by clickin’ here

Deztinee and RaenaBelle     

Goodnight My Sweet

RaenaBelle, it’s your turn fur some lap luvvin’ time with mommy.

 

 Raena lays in mommy's lap for some lap loving time

 

          It’s ‘bout time. But why is she so sad sissy? I’s know the weather has made her pains more and her teeths are hurtin’, but those things don’t usually make her be so sad?.

 

Dezi lays on the arm of the chair

Oh Raena, you know mommy luvs you very much, right? 

 

 Raena lays in mommy's lap for pets and loving

 

          Of course, sissy. And I’s luvs mommy verrrrrrrrrrrry much too. I’s so happy that she’s mine’s mommy. I’s try to show her how much I’s luvs her every day.

 

 Dezi lays on the Liberty cat tree

 

She knows Raena. She’s sad right now, cuz befur you, me had a big sisfur who mommy luvved very much. They had been together a really long time. And then one day, God called Lexi to heaven. That broke mommy’s heart. Tomorrow will mark 1 year since sis Lexi left us. And tho’ you nor me will ever be Lexi, it’s our job to help ease mommy’s pain from losin’ her.

 

          Should we be doin’ somethin’ special, sissy?

 

Nope Raena, that’s the beauty of luv. All you have to do is be yourself. As much as we luv mommy, she luvs us. And all we need to do is just show mommy we luv her. Maybe some extra purrs and cuddles, but we luv those too.

 

 Lexi looks at mommy while sitting in her lap on 3/3/2016

 

Dear furiends, ya’ may have noticed we’ve been a little quieter the last few days. Well, mommy’s been a little sad and down and reminiscin’ ‘bout times past. Raena and me have been getting’ a lot of extra luvvin’, and we’ve been returnin’ it in spades. Mommy wrote a poem to sissy the other day, and we thought we’d share it with ya’ll today. Fur those of ya’ that joined us in the last year, you may not ‘member sis Lexi, but she will always live on in our hearts. We do hope that you will pardon our reflection on such an amazin’ soul. Sis Lexi will always be the Gold Standard by which all Service Cats will be measured. Her luv and devotion to mommy, knew no bounds. Mommy says that same luv exists in all of us, and she is so blest to be the recipient of that luv time and again.

Goodnight My Sweet

 

Goodnight sweet Lexi

Close your eyes and sleep now

Rest your tired and weary body

I’ll be alright, somehow.

 

I will hold you in my heart,

Where you can never die

I’ll remember you forever

Go ahead and close your eyes.

 

You’ve been with me thru it all, it seems

Ups and downs, and all the in betweens.

We held on to each other

We had so many plans, and dreams

 

I never thought this day would come

When you’d leave me all alone

I know you didn’t want to go

With me, you’d found your home

 

But time slows for no one

And this world doesn’t care

Who might need you

To always be near

 

So close your eyes now sweet Lexi

Rest your tired and weary body

Time will never separate us

Nor will the heavens or the stars

 

You will always be with me

Forever in my heart

In each and every memory

We’ll never be apart

 

And when you awake

On the other side

Wait for me my darling

I won’t be far behind

 

Goodnight sweet Lexi

This world is still unkind

Close your eyes and sleep now

I won’t be far behind.
