MeOW C’mon RaenaBelle, it’s Blest Sunday. And do we ever have the Blessings to give Fanks fur. Me just luvs givin’ Fanks, don’t you?
Yep sissy, I’s do, cuz it means we have another day to lives and luvs. Looks like Summer arrived and kicked Spring on down the road. I’s guess that’s okay tho’, mommy said Spring wouldn’t be stayin’ long. It’s turned really hot and there’s been lots of fun teevee to watch from mine’s purrch. Y, I’s saw birdy’s and wasps and bunnies last week. Mommy says the waspys are dangerous and she’s always sprayin’ somethin’ outside to make ‘em go away. They must not be too smart tho’, cuz they just keep comin’ back fur more.
Yep Raena, mommy’s ‘lergic to waspys, so that’s why she’s always tryin’ to shoo ‘em off. Now where did you see those bunnies? Me didn’t see any bunnies.
They were right outside sissy, eatin’ the grass and flowers. There’ll be more bunnies to see, don’t worry summer’s furinally here. In the meantime, we oughtta give fanky fanks fur the nice weather and all our furiends.
Me is fankful fur the nice warm weather Raena. And of course me’s always fankful fur our furiends. Meowin’ of furiends, mommy got a birthday card last week from awnty Mary Beth and uncle Garth. And they also included a card from Gizmo and the rest of the furry family. Mommy thought that was just the sweetest thing ever.
Ain’t that the truth sissy?. She also got a card and some green papers yesfurday from one of our Anonymous awnties, that made her smile. Actually, I’s think it was more of a big o’l grin rather than a smile. Mommy’s kind’a embarrassed right now cuz she doesn’t have a tooth in her mouth.
Oh Raena meowin’ of mommy’s toothlessness, she had furgotten till recently that she had to renew her driver’s license befur the end of May. Ya’ know license fotos aren’t meant to be purrtraits, but mommy’s always gotten all purrettied up fur the foto anyways. Ya’ know she paints her face and fixes her hair and gets ready to pose and smile her big teeth showin’ smile. But, this year she doesn’t have any teeth fur that smile, so when she sat down to have her foto taken, all she could do was grin. She looks so funny, kind’a like a blowfish or somethin’.
Sissy, that’s not very nice of you to compare mommy to a blowfish. Besides, how do you even know what a blowfish looks like?
C’mon Raena, mommy knows she looks funny without any teethies. Her lips have all but disappeared. She keeps pushin’ ‘em out cuz she says skinny lips mean she’s gettin’ old. And you know how much mommy hates lookin’ old. MOL
That’s the truth sissy, she blames every wrinkle and gray hair on us. I’s can’t ‘magine why she would even think such a thing.
Me neither Raena. Oh well, we’ll think ‘bout that tomorrow. Me wonders how many of our furiends might be the cause of their peeps wrinkles and gray hairs? Anyways, we wanna Fank all our furiends fur their luv and fur sharin’ their lives with us. As always, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives.
Mine’s favorite place in the universe…mommy’s lap.
And don’t furget sissy, we’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies.

Dezi: MeOW C’mon Raena, it’s time fur Blest Sunday. And me’s feelin’ purrticularly Blest this week; how ‘bout you?
Raena: Me too sissy, me too. After all, mine’s 2nd birthday is comin’ up this Caturday the 21st. Are you gonna tell me what you and mommy are plannin’ to make it special?
Who says we’re plannin’ anythin’ Raena?
Uh, you did sissy and so did mommy. You both said there’d be no actual pawrty on mine’s big day, but ya’ll would make it up to me by doin’ somethin’ really special.
Oh that?! You’re right Raena. There’s no way we’d let your special day pass without doin’ somethin’ special fur ya’. Ya’ know, mommy said we’d throw you a huge bash on your Gotchaday this year ifin we toned down your birthday. But, that doesn’t mean we’re gonna totally furget ‘bout your birthday.
Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
Well fanky fank the cats. I’s was startin’ to think some of that mud mommy put on her hair had seeped into ya’ll’s brains.
Well Raena, you know why mommy was puttin’ that mud on her hair, don’cha?
Uh…Not really sissy, no.
(Dezi thinks back to the sight of mommy A with all that henna mud on her hair last night and how Raena kept tryin’ to dip her paw into the bowl and laughs.) Oh Raena, you know how vain mommy is. She wanted to cover up all her gray hairs, courtesy of none other than some sisfur who shall remain nameless, befur we went to meet furiends. Mommy’s been makin’ big plans fur us to meet some very special kitties and awnty Nora. She’s even planned fur us to spend a day at BlogPaws. All in celebration of your big day. It’s gonna be your very furst big road trip.
Well sissy, I’s know lots of peeps are talkin’ ‘bout this BlogPaws thingy, will I’s like it?
As much as you like to go out and meet peeps Raena, me’s sure you’re gonna like it. And let me tell ya’, there’s some pawsum swag that goes along with it. There’s no tellin’ what we’ll come home with. The year sis Lexi and me went, we brought home so many treats and noms and toys that the whole bed was covered in goodies. So, mommy says since it’s your birthday weekend you get furst choice of whatever you want from the swag bag. And, mommy plans on chattin’ it up with some of the brands to see ifin we can’t work out some quid pro quo with ‘em.
Quid pro quo? I’s didn’t know you meowed in Latin sissy. What ‘zactly does that mean anyways?
Uh, well, it just means we hope they’ll give us somethin’ that we can use and share with our furiends. And they get the honor of us meowin’ ‘bout it. After all, who could say no to our bootyful faces?
Hmmmmm That does sound like fun, sissy. I’s gettin’ really x’cited. I’s also wanna fanky fank awnty Vonda fur sendin’ me some birthday green papers. I’s haven’t picked out mine’s actual purresent yet, but I’s can’t wait to go shoppin’. Maybe I’s can go shoppin’ while we’re on our trip.
Maybe Raena. There’ll be purrlenty of time fur you to choose your gift. Mommy says cuz we’re gonna be travelin’ and away from home most of this week, we’re gonna take the week off.
Not completely sissy. Mommy says that altho’ we won’t be writin’ blog posties till our next Blest Sunday, we will be keepin’ in touch every now and then thru our other social media sites. She also said ifin she can figger out how to work this smarty pants fone, we could actually do a couple of live videos from awnty Nora’s and the conference. That would mean we could actually meow with our furiends in real time.
Yep Raena, that sounds like fun too. Ifin you’re not already followin’ us on facebook, instagram or twitter, and would like to take pawrt in our trip, then be sure to click the follow button on our pages; just click the links above. You can also send us a furiend request on facebook: we’re Alexandra-Deztinee High.
We better wrap it up sissy and start packin’ our bags. This is quite a Blessing. Havin’ the oppurrtunity to meet up with furiends and spend time with them, is out of this world special fur us and one of our favorite things to do.
You’re right Raena. Me fur sure wants to take the nip nanners, how ‘bout you? 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 life. Big or small, we’re all Blest to have another day to give Fanks fur.
I’s fanky fankful fur mommy, our home, our fuiends, and the oppurrtunity to take this trip. We’re also linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. We’ll see you all soon.
Till the next time……………………………………………Be Blest!!!

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We’ve got a cool new ride!!!
Raena, what are you doin’? You know we try to save our blessings fur our Blest Sunday postys.
I’s too x’cited, sissy. You can save what you wanna meow ‘bout it till Sunday ifin ya’ want. But, I’s meowin’ ‘bout it today. I’s been ridin’ in that cramped old carrier fur too long. We’ve had a few sunny days that were great fur strollin’, but here we sat hangin’ in the house ‘stead of out enjoyin’ the furesh air and huntin’ fur bunnies.
And whose fault is that?
It’s not all mine’s fault sissy. Besides, it’s not like it was in purristine condition when I’s was born. Mommy said you and your sis Lexi had already broken the board that went across the bottom cuz ya’ll were too heavy fur it. And like ya’ll, I’s never would’a broke the stroller on purrpuss; I’s luvs goin’ fur strolls with mommy too much.
Well at least we could still use it when sis Lexi and me snapped the bottom board. When you broke it, there was no more strollin’ fur any kitty. Me sure did miss it. When me was little and used to go with mommy, me always had to ride in that cramped carrier. You got lucky and came here long after we were already enjoyin’ the fureedom the stroller gives us. So the way me sees it, is that you were just payin’ your dues like all the Service kitties befur you. Anyways, me’s glad we got a new ride too. And this one shouldn’t break. Me heard mommy say it could hold up to 75 pounds. That means both of us can ride at the same time.
Uh, Mommy?! It’s really big, but I’s can still jump in on mine’s own.
And we could even gain a few pounds. MOL That Gen7 Pets makes a mighty fine stroller. It’s so comfy. And did you see that our tires are bigger than the ones on mommy’s wheelchair? I’s bet there ain’t nowhere we can’t go now. Ya’ know, Oklahoma has a lot of really bad roads and sidewalks. And we’ve got lots of dirt and holes too. That kind’a terrain can be hard on wheels and tires. Mommy says the wheels on our new stroller were meant fur that stuff. It is called a jogger after all.
Yeah Raena, and me can’t wait to go fur our furst stroll. We were s’posed to go yesfurday, but it took mommy a little longer to put it together than she x’spected; and we got a late surpurrise notice ‘bout a inspection fur today. That meant mommy had to try to do a little cleanin’ last night. Needless to say, she didn’t get much done, we should’a went fur that stroll instead.
That sure is a long way down.
I’s agree, sissy. Ya’ know, a lot of our furiends are gettin’ strollers of their own. Wouldn’t it be cool ifin we could all for fur a stroll together? We get asked a lot ‘bout whether or not we would recommend peeps gettin’ their kitties a stroller. And we totally think they’re a great way fur kitty to spend some time in the great outdoors while still bein’ safe. And, takin’ kitty fur a stroll even lets our peeps get a little exercise. We do recommend doin’ your homework befur buyin’ one tho’. Ya’ wanna make sure it’ll hold kitty and be sturdy enuff fur kitty to feel safe. We much purrfur the 3 wheeled strollers to those rickety 4 wheelers. Not only do they look sleeker, they maneuver better. As fur whether or not to get one with a zipper closure or velcro, we can only meow ‘bout what we know. We’ve only had zipper ones, and we really do recommend the Gen7 strollers. Our old stroller had gaps t’ween where the zipper ended and met the suppurrt bars. And anypawdy who knows kitties knows, ifin kitty can fit their head thru a space, they’ll squeeze their whole body thru somehow.
That’s so true Raena. More than once we’ve poked our head and front paws out the gaps on that stroller. Me has a feelin’ that’s not gonna be pawssible anymore. Me didn’t see any gaps in our new stroller. But just in case, it’s always good to tether kitty into the stroller with the purrvided D rings. Even the calmest of kitties can get spooked. Strollin’ should be fun. We also recommend keepin’ the stroller closed, least till kitty gets comfy enuff not to try to jump out. As fur the assembly required, ifin mommy can do it, anypawdy can. Usually it’s just a matter of attachin’ the wheels. You’ve just got to make sure everythin’ gets locked into place. ya’ don’t want a wheel fallin’ off on your furst stroll. And altho’ we luv that our stroller matches our eyes, color choice shouldn’t dictate the stroller you choose. Quality strollers usually only come in a few purrimary colors, like red, blue and black. That means there’s no purrple strollers fur us. You can get creative and trick yours out any way ya’ want.
Are we gonna do that with ours sissy? I’s not sure what that means ‘zactly, but I’s like the sound of it.
Mommy says we can Raena. Just ‘member, it’s gotta be tasteful. We are Southern Belles after all.
Tasteful huh? Are we gonna put treats all over it?
(Dezi shakes her head.) We’ll meow ‘bout it later Raena. Let’s just say a meowsy big Fank you to awnty Cindy and angel Maggie Meme fur our new ride and get ready to go fur a stroll.
I’s with ya’ sissy. Can we meow ‘bout what to call it too?
This is not a sponsored post. We received our new Gen7 Jogger from an amazing awnty and just thought we’d tell ya’ more ‘bout how to pick the right stroller fur your pets.
Till the next time……………………………………….Be Blest!!!
