Dezi: MeOW HiSsssssssss RaenaBelle!!! Quit jumpin’ on me!!!
Raena: I’s didn’t jump on you sissy, I’s jumped over you. I’s was in a hurry to get to the purrch. I’s thought I’s saw somethin’ outside.
Dezi: Ya’ still need to stop. How many times has mommy told you to slow down Raena? Besides, it’s Blest Sunday and was time fur brekky. What ifin mommy had a been tryin’ to bring us our plates at that very minute? Y, All our food would’a ended up on the floor. We’re not heathens, we don’t eat off the floor.
Meow fur yourself sissy, sometimes I’s find all kinds of yummy things on the floor. Y, Just the other day mommy dropped a piece of cheese in the kitchen when she was makin’ her smashed tater with cheese. Ifin I’s hadn’t grabbed it up when I’s did, she would’a throwed it in the trash. What a waste that would’a been. I’s luvs me some cheese. Ya’ know our china platters are fine, but I’s not gonna miss an oppurr-tunity to eat me somethin’ tasty just cuz it’s not served with silver and gold trimmins. See, sometimes you can find Blessings on the floor. Just be careful it’s food and not a bug.
(Dezi shakes her head) Oh Raena, sometimes me just doesn’t know what to do with you.
Oh sissy, just luvs me. You know you were just like me once. Mommy says so. She says when you were young you couldn’t wait fur her to open the door in the meownin’ and put the purrch in front of it. She says you used to sit on it fur hours and chirp and chortle at anythin’ that came by.
Yeah Raena, me did. It seems so long ago now. It also seems like there was more to see back then. We used to have stray kitties and all kinds of wildlife play on our porch. It’s gotten so hot, ain’t nuffin’ outside doin’ much of anythin’. Y, just last night it was still 104°F at 9:30 p.m.. That’s just too hot.
Yep sissy, it is. You’d think the old bobcat and the coon family would be knockin’ on our door askin’ fur food. It’s gotta be too hot to hunt.
Me’s been wonderin’ where they were Raena. We haven’t seen either of ‘em all season. Maybe when it starts coolin’ off in a couple of months they’ll show up. Fankfully, we furinally got a new lease signed. Our rent went up $30.00, so mommy may have to put her dentures on hold fur a bit. It takes quite a bit of gas to get there every week and she’s been drivin’ on fumes the last couple times. With more money we don’t have goin’ to rent and nowhere to take green papers from, that drive is purretty much the only thing left to cut.
Well sissy, I’s guess that’ll give her more time to try to fix the mess the manager made and figger out what they can and can’t do befur it all starts again. Ya’ know the manager told mommy that they’re gonna be “rehabing” these ‘pawrtments soon and that they’re gonna wanna do a move out and then move us back in and start all this again in just a few months. Mommy told ‘em they couldn’t do that cuz she has a years lease, and utilities that be in her name that she has to pay each month. While she might not have had to put down a depawsit, those companies charge to turn it on and move it and stuffs. Not to mention the stress mommy’s just went thru. We fur sure can’t be doin’ this again that soon. We all need time to recupurrate.
Yeah Raena, the way they treat us just ain’t right. It’s not like we’re poor and need help by choice. And mommy certainly ain’t disabled by choice. Ifin mommy could change our situation, she would in a heartbeat. Our mommy ain’t afraid of work. Y, Befur her accident, she worked 2 and 3 jobs at a time to make sure she could affurd everythin’ she needed and wanted.
I’s heard sissy. She says she was young and dumb back then and didn’t save, so that’s why we’re in the shape we’re in now. Altho’ I’s know mommy wishes she could do more and could give us more, and had more money, I’s glad things happened the way they did. Y, ifin they hadn’t who knows where you and me would be? We might not have ever been saved?. I’s don’t even wanna think ‘bout what it would have been like ifin mommy hadn’t showed up and whisked me away to this Blest life.
Me neither, Raena, me neither. We might not be rich by the standards the world uses, but when it comes to luv, we’re bazillionaires.
You got that right sissy. We’ve got the bestest mommy ever, altho’ we know all of you think you’ve got the bestest pawrent, and that’s okay. And meowin’ of all of ya’, we can’t ‘magine a life without you.

We wouldn’t want to Raena. We have the bestest furiends in the whole universe. God smiled on us the day we met you, our dear furiends, and we ask Him each and every day to keep and Bless you and your families. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. Blessings are all ‘round us, we just have to stop and see ‘em.

So true sissy, so true. Let’s link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and go get us some mommy luvvin’. But furst, I’s wanna meow Fanky fank You God, fur all our blessings. And fanky fank all of you fur bein’ pawrt of our Blessings each day.
Me seconds that Raena. C’mon, me will race ya’ to mommy’s lap.

Raena: Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. A dry RaenaBelle at that. You are never gonna believe what mommy did yesfurday.
Dezi: Hey Raena, what’d ya’ think ‘bout the new dentist? Huh? Mommy says she really likes her. She says the office was really nice. There was a huge waitin’ room with windows in every corner fur different kinds of doctors. Mommy said she was shocked and impurressed at how clean the pawtty box room was. Seems there’s 3 dentist in the office who work every day. Well every day Monday thru Fursday; they’re closed on Furidays. And mommy’s dentist Dr. Collier has been there fur 7 years. Things are already lookin’ better than they did at Aspen, who couldn’t seem to keep a dentist on staff. Mommy’s just ready fur Aspen to honor their money back guarantee and give her the green papers she paid them fur the dentures they didn’t make. Anyways, what’d you think Raena?
Hmmmmpht Yeah sissy, mommy says it was great but I’s wouldn’t know. ‘Pawrently the roads to Tishomingo are some real doozies of “country pig trails”, and with the thunderstorms makin’ it dark and gloomy and impairin’ visibility, mommy was a bit scared and nervous ‘bout the drive. So she left me here at home with you!!! How dare she!!! What ifin somethin’ had happened and she needed me? Anythin’ could’a happened and mommy would’a been totally alone.
Well Raena, you’re right, anythin’ could’a happened and that’s zactly why mommy didn’t take you. Mommy always puts our health and well bein’ befur hers. Ifin somehtin’ had happened, say mommy ran off one of those pig trails into a ditch or tree or had some kind’a accident with another idiot drivin’ too fast on those pig trails thinkin’ they own ‘em and oughtta drive in the middle of ’em, she’d never have been able to live with herself ifin you’d been hurt or worse, deaded. Fankfully, mommy did okay and was able to stay at the office till she was able to drive home after her ‘pointment.
Yeah sissy, I’s do ‘purreciate that mommy doesn’t purr-puss-fully put us in harm’s way, but I’s still worry ‘bout her bein’ alone out there. Ya’ know, totally at the mercy of the elements and the kindness of strangers…who ain’t always so kind. Mommy says she’s gonna look fur a safer way to get there fur her next ‘pointment so she doesn’t have to be alone. It’s never good to tempt fate, I’s meow. I’s pawfully glad mommy made it home safely, but I’s sure was worried ‘bout her. Anyways, that nice Dr. Collier pulled the last two teethies mommy had and scheduled her fur a pointment to make the impurressions fur her dentures next month. Looks like we’re furinally gonna see an end to all this. We just gotta get our green papers back from that pawful Aspen Dental so we can pay the new place. In the meantime, mommy talks really funny.
That she does Raena. Ya’ know that got me to thinkin’ ifin our meows change when we kitties lose our teethies? ‘Pawrently teeth play a ‘purrtant role in furmin’ a lot of words. What do you think? Would we meow differently without our teeth? Ya’ know kitties have a large repurrtoire of meows, chortles, chirps, hisses, growls and other sounds. How are those sounds affected when we lose our purmanent teeth? Do ya’ reckon some really rich purrson would try to get kitty dentures fur their toothless kitty? Do they make kitty dentures?
Oh sissy, I’s think you may have a little too much time on your paws. Who thinks ‘bout those kinds of things anyways?. I’s don’t think I’s would want any kitty dentures.
Ya’ never know what peeps will come up with Raena. Mommy says that years ago she knew a company who made implants fur male kitties who had been neutered. Sure ‘nuff, your male kitty could look like he had stuff to strut fur only $6,000.00. And, there was even different sizes to choose from. (Dezi and Raena shake their heads)
OMC That’s not right sissy, it’s just not right. And, on that note, I’s think we should go check on mommy. She’s havin’ quite a bit of pain. Seems those last two teethies were imbedded in the nerve and hurt a little more than the last time. Mommy’s had one of those serious migraines since last night. Hopefully, she’ll be able to help us visit with our furiends soon. We sure wanna fanky fank everypawdy fur your well wishes and purrayers.
Till the next time………………………………………….Be Blest!!!

RaenaBelle and Deztinee
Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. WoooooooWhee You should’a seen the winds we had yesfurday, they whipped us all over the road. Mine’s furs was blowin’ in the wind so much that by the time we got home, I’s looked like a scraggly stray. Mommy didn’t look much better. She had knots on top of knots in her head furs.
Yeah Raena, ya’ll were quite a sight. Me was worried ‘bout ya’ll. The wind here was whippin’ things ‘round outside and me could hear all kinds of noises and bangs on the house and windows. Me was so happy to see ya’ll and fur us to be all together and safe. But what happened? Ya’ll came home without mommy’s new denture, yet again?.
Well sissy, you know mommy’s been tellin’ ‘em all along that the wax mold they’ve been givin’ her to try in didn’t fit and sure ‘nuff, when they made that denture based on the wax model it didn’t fit. Y, when mommy put it in, it just fell right back out. So, they’re havin’ to remake it yet again. Hopefully, it’ll be right next week. There was yet another new dentist there yesfurday. Mommy didn’t like him at all. ‘Course, it doesn’t really matter; the dentists don’t have anythin’ to do with the denture pawrt. That’s all on these untrained assistants. Anyways, our assistant, Patrick, told mommy all ‘bout this new smarty pants fone he got fur the cheap. Ya’ know, mommy’s been thinkin’ ‘bout movin’ us into this century and gettin’ us a smarty pants fone.
Well, did ya’ll get one Raena?
Not yet, sissy. We did go by the place and check ‘em out. Seems they could give mommy one of those smarty pants fones fur furee and get us all set up fur the same price she pays fur our non smarty pants fone. And, the fureebie is even big enuff that mommy can see it. Y, she could even learn to text. All she’d have to do is talk to it and it could type all by itself.
MeOW That does sound like a purretty smart fone, Raena. Ya’ reckon it could unnerstand our meows and help us write our own blogs? Ya’ know, on the days when mommy feels bad?
I’s bet it could sissy. We tried it out in the store and mommy and the clerk got a big o’l laff when I’s meowed and it typed somethin’. Since I’s can’t read, I’s don’t know ifin it translated mine’s meow as good as mommy does tho’. Besides, I’s like writin’ our postys with mommy. The smarty pants fones are purretty cool, but I’s wouldn’t trade mommy in fur one.
Me either Raena. But, it would be nice to have one. Me hopes mommy decides to go back and get it. What else did ya’ll do yesfurday?
Nuffin’, sissy, After meowin’ ‘bout smarty pants fones, we came straight home. We missed you. And hopefully, we can get some visits in today. I’s miss what’s goin’ on with all our furiends too. And, all the x’citement that’s goin’ on outside. All the birdies are out and I’s even saw a squirrel this meownin’.
C’mon Raena, let’s finish brekky and get to visitin’.
I’s comin’ sissy.
Till the next time………………………………………Be Blest!!!
