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.

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.

Blest Sunday – Vive la France

It’s Blest Sunday again, and the world has been hit with tragedy. While we were dealing with storms and worrying ‘bout not bein’ able to get on da catputer to have fun, France was reelin’ from da terrorist attacks dat stole da lives of so many. Our deepest sympathy’s go out to all of France. You are in our purrayers. This world and all dat’s in it are a gweat blessing from God. And a small portion of da worlds pawpulation wants to stamp out freedom from any who don’t believe da way they do. We just celebrated Veteran’s day. A day dat honors all those who fight to keep us safe. But what do we do when da death and destruction of a war are brought to our streets where the innocent and untrained are just goin’ about their lives?

 

Dezi inside a Red abstract rose

We join so many others in our sadness over da tactics dat took so much from so many. We purray and ask God to keep you all safe and dat sumday this world will know Peace. Vive la France and God Bless America.

By da way, fur those of ya’ dat reads meez blog on fones and tablets, it shuld be much easier fur you now.

Don’t Leave Me Alone

Hi, my name is…well the lady that feeds me calls me Little Momma. I guess that’s my name. It wasn’t always tho’. I can barely remember anymore, but a long time ago when I was little I had a family and a home. I was loved so much. I was fed twice a day, everyday. I had toys and a bed and I watched all these other cats run around outside. They looked so sad and unkempt. My long silky furs got brushed everyday. I would never look like Those cats. My human adored me. I was her Princess. One day my human’s boyfriend moved in with us and now I had two humans to spoil me and take care of me. And then one day my human started to gain weight. She took up more room in the bed, but she still loved me.

Only she quit cleaning my litter box. And I could hear my humans voices raise when her old boyfriend, now husband was cleaning it. Something about how he worked hard all day and didn’t want to come home to have to clean out the cat box. Each night when they sat down to watch t.v. I would jump up in their laps and sleep. Suddenly they started pushing me away. One of the rooms got really busy. I don’t know why because they started closing the door and I couldn’t see in, much less get in. I waited outside the door one evening while my humans talked. I kept putting my paw under the door so they would know I was there, but they never let me in.

The next day I was put in my carrier and taken out to the car. I just knew I was going to that awful place with the white coats. That’s okay, I always got extra treats when we came home. My humans didn’t say a word while they drove. We drove for what seemed like forever before finally stopping. Wait…This doesn’t look like the white coat place? There’s nothing around here? What are we doing here? My humans didn’t even get out of the car. They pulled me out of my carrier and tossed me out the window and sped off. I was in shock and confused. I tried to follow them but they were already out of sight by the time I got up. It’s getting dark and it’s time for dinner. Please, come back I meowed. Don’t leave me out here alone. I sat at the clearing waiting for my humans to come and get me, but it just kept getting colder and darker and their was all kinds of scary sounds. I finally ran up the closest tree. Seems I remember those cats outside my windows did this when something was chasing them.

I spent the night in the tree till the next morning. Day broke but it was still cold and the wind was blowing. My silky furs looked awful and I think I had a mat. Something really hurt under my arm. I waited and watched but my humans never came back. I lost track of time. And if not for some of those kitties that grew up outside I probably would have died that first week on my own. There was a few other cats like me where my humans dropped me off. They hadn’t seen their humans in a long time, but knew where to get food and water and sometimes shelter when the freezing started. They taught me to not let any human get near me cause bad things would happen. I thought they must have been right cuz I had amazing humans and then they threw me out of a car window and left me.

That’s been years ago now. I barely resemble the beautiful cat I once was. My fur isn’t silky anymore. It’s matted and dirty and hurts my skin. I’ve had lots of babies since then, many have died. Some were killed by those scary sounds coming from the trees that furst night. Some never made it across the street. And some…it gets sooooo cold in the winter. Well, there’s a lady here and she brings out food for all of us everyday. She seems nice enough, but I’ll never be fooled again. Once a Princess, now just another Little Momma.

 NationalFeralCatDay-Badge-10.16.2015

Today is National Feral Cat day. This stowry is mostly fiction. We say mostly cuz me just wrote it as if me was da kitty. But da twuff is, it kuld be any feral’s stowry. Not all feral cats was born outside. Da very furst ever feral cat was once sumpawdy’s princess. TNR helps to stop the repopulation of the feral colonies. It allows them to continue to live out there lives without the burden of breeding, fighting over breeding and territory and giving birth. But nuffin’ purrtects them fwum da dangers dat lurk outside. We wanna fank all those who care fur ferals everywhere. And fur all those who put up warm shelters fur them in da winter and fresh food and water fur them to eat and dwink. We purray da day comes when there awe no more ferals cuz all kitties have a luvving furever home.

Technology Be Fun

Well while purrparin’ fur our quote posty yesfurday we wealized how offen we all use quotes in our ever day speakin’. And how little we may know ‘bout where they originated fwum. Mommy sez she members havin’ to do sumfin’ similar way back when she was in da fiff gwade. Back when dinosaurs roamed da earff and there was no such fing as da innernet. She members attwibutin’ all hers quote to hers birff father ‘cept da ones dat came fwum da Bible. Funny fing is, eever she was wight (NOT) or da teacher just didn’t have da heart to tell her she was wrong, cuz she got an A on da purrject. MOL

 dw-DezistrollerDSCN5141 (390x800)

In this new era quotes awe givin’ way to hashtags. What will da future hold fur kids comin’ up today? We figger lots of ya’ will member fings like, “Walk softly and carry a big stick,” or da ever famous, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.” You know da weally famous quotes dat had a hand in changin’ our countwy. Now don’t get us wrong, weez weally enjoyin’ da catputer age; we just hate all dat be getting’ lost in da vacuum. But let me show ya’ sum fotos of me enjoyin’ da new technology. There’s a video too, but it’s weally dawrk and mommy didn’t have nuff time to edit it afur this posty. So weez’ll show it to you anuvver time.

Challenged on Wenesday

Keep every promise you make and only make promises you can keep. (Anthony Hitt)

dw-DezipromiseDSCN5086 (748x800)

Awnty Ellen fwum 15 and meowin’ tagged us fur da Quote Challenge da udder day. Da rules awe to name and link back to yous challenger. Post at least 3 of yous favowite quotes, and pass da challenge along. So here we go.

Our openin’ quote is one dat be very close to mommy’s heart, as all of our quotes will be. Mommy sez a purromise has a much stwonger connotation than words like, okay, I will, sure, no purroblem. A purromise is yous word and bond. Afur mommy’s accident when she was healffy and always reliable, she made lots of purromises. And she kept every one. Today mommy makes far less purromises, but she still keeps each and every one. Ifin mommy sez she purromises you sumfin’, then yous can count on her to do it. We fink it’s weally purrtant dat yous mouff not be writin’ checks yous body can’t cash. Dat by da way is not on our quote list, but it is a quote made famous by Bo Diddly. And one dat mommy uses when she dusn’t make purromises. She sez hers mind is still sharp as a tack but hers body keeps her fwum duin’ a lot of fings these days.

dw-Lexi downfaceDSCN4490 (1150x1280)

Our next quote is weally relevant today when so many awe twyin’ to erase periods and events of history. Sed by George Santayana, “Those who cannot remember the past, are condemmed to repeat it.” Good, bad or ugly da past exists and we can’t change it. But we shuld learn fwum it. Yous own past has made you da purrson you awe today. Events have led you to where you awe today. Even tho’ we be poor and mommys body be a mess, she sez she wuldn’t change a fing. Everyday of her life has been a learning adventure dat has led her to da here and now. She sez she be gwatefull dat it’s hers short term memory dat be da purroblem cuz she has da memories of da lessons of her past to guide her.

Our third and final quote was a toss up. We saved da bestest fur last. So many peeps hav quoted this one in a variety of different ways dat no two sites cwedit da same purrson over and over. So weez’ll just say dat mommy’s gwandpa (may he rest in peace) taught her to “Live each day to da fullest, cuz you were never promised a tomorrow.” We fink it’s purretty self explanatory. And Jesus said in Matthew 24:36, “But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the Angels of Heaven, but My Father only.” We kuld go on and on and on, but you kinda get a sense of who we awe in da qotes weez chose to use. Fanks fur da challenge awnty Ellen.

 dw Dezi lays head off top1

Now, weez posed to pass this on. Weez not sure who all has been challenged, so weez just gunna choose a few and ifin yous wuld like to take up da challenge yous selff, purrlease feel furee. Just follow da rules outlined above. Weez challenge: Katie Isabella, Timmy Tomcat, and Bad Cat Chris.
