Blest Sunday: We’ve Missed You & We’re Back

Hey Raena, come on, it’s time fur our Blest Sunday posty.

          Are you sure sissy? You know, mommy’s been confused ‘bout what day it is fur the last few days now. Kind’a like we get on the silvervine we had the other day.

 

 

 Dezi with silvervine on cat tree

 

Yeah, me knows, Raena. But, mommy checked all the things she normally does when she passes out and it’s fur sure Blest Sunday. Now, hurry, we don’t wanna miss church. 

 

 Raena with silvervine on cat tree

 

          I’s comin’ sissy. Ya’ know, I’s really missed all our catputer time and visitin’ with our furiends these last couple of weeks, but, I’s gotta tell ya’ spendin’ extra time with mommy has been great. 

 

 Dezi with silvervine on the cat tree

 

Me knows what ya’ mean Raena. Ya’ know, one might think that since mommy’s home all the time, we get lots of time to ourselves to play with her. But that just ain’t true. There’s the catputer time of writin’ and researchin’ fur our postys, helpin’ us visit our furiends, doin’ the regular every day cleanin’ that one has to do to keep from livin’ in a pig sty. Not that there’s anythin’ wrong with livin’ in a pig sty…ifin you’re a pig; but ya’ know, us kitties like things a bit more tidy. And there’s the business stuffs that seems never endin’, and of course there’s the passin’ out time, that mommy spends unconscious every day. So, it really isn’t play time all day, every day. 

 

 Raena with silvervine on cat tree

 

          So true, sissy. But, all in all, we are very blest to have the lives we have. Even with all those things happenin’, mommy still makes time to spend with us and with each of us by ourselves each day. Still, it has been fun these last couple of weeks.

 

 Dezi with silvervine on the cat tree

 

Yep, sure ‘nuff. But, mommy has purromissed that startin’ this week, we’re gonna get back to business as usual. We wanna fank all our amazin’ furiends fur their luv, suppurrt and patience while mommy’s been goin’ thru all this dental stuffs. It was a little more traumatic than mommy had originally anticipated, and she’s not 100% yet. But, she is doin’ well and getting’ better every day. She’s back on the smashed tater diet, with some added cheese fur much needed protein to stay strong. Mommy even said she doesn’t mind the taters so much, she just can’t wait fur the day when she can actually bite and chew somethin’ again. And she’s even purromissed fotos, once she’s healed and all the swellin’ has gone down.

 

 Raena with silvervine on cat tree

 

          Now that’s somethin’, sissy. We all know how rare fotos of mommy are. She luvs pointin’ the flashy box at us, but herself? That’s another matter all together. MOL  I’s gonna be happy to get back to visitin’ all our furiends tho’. I’s sure hope we haven’t missed too much. We are blest to have the bestest furiends ever. We better wrap this up, church is ‘bout to start.

 

 Raena with silvervine on cat tree

 

You’re right Raena. Furst, we wanna remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. Ya’ know when ya’ start your day with a smile and a fanks, the whole day goes a little bit better. And, even tho’ we don’t really do selfies, we’re joinin’ the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. We hope you enjoyed our day with the silvervine, we sure did. MOL  Me’s gotta go now. We’ll see you all soon.

 

Till the next time……………………………………Be Blest!!!

Blest Sunday: We’re Still Here & Still Blest

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle.

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

          Raena, what are you meowin’ ‘bout now? 

 

 Dezi and Raena hang out together during the fireworks

 

I’s was just seein’ ifin anypawdy ‘membered us. Here we had the pawrty of the century planned, and then we went and fell off the face of the earth.

 

 Dezi lays atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

          Purrrrrrrlease Raena. We didn’t fall off the face of the earth. And, our furiends knew mommy was headin’ to the dentist and without her, we can’t work the catputer. 

 

 

 

Yeah sissy, what’s up with that anyways? Who knew ya’ needed a password just turn it on? And, why wouldn’t mommy use at least one of our names as said password? It’s like she wants to make sure we can’t have any fun without her. 

 

          Now Raena, you know we have lots of toys and fun without the catputer. Y, We’ve even had a little fun the last few days tryin’ to make out what mommy’s sayin’? 

 

 Raena lays on floor looking at toys

Okay, maybe we do have lots of fun toys.

 

 

Now that’s the truth sissy. She fur sure hasn’t sounded like our mommy.

 

          She’ll get better tho’, Raena. But we should let everypawdy know how things went. and we’ve got a few peeps to fank too.

 

 Raena looks at mommy from stroller

You’ll just have to enjoy seein’ this foto of me. Mommy didn’t

take da camera to her ‘pointment. But this is a great selfie, don’ch’a think?

 

 

Well, let me meow ‘bout the ‘pointment sissy. Mommy was a little nervous all meownin’ long, but she kept sayin’ that once it was all over, she’d feel much better. Hmmmpht  Anyways, when we got there, they called us right back. The assistant was the same girly that had taken mommy’s impurrsions, so at least she was furmiliar. The dentist on the other hand…yep, mommy had another new dentist, Dr. Ryan. He was an older man, 3rd generation dentist, and gentle as a teddy bear. He was really nice, even tho’ he did make mommy cry a few times. He kept stickin’ mommy with a needle and then he grabbed some funky lookin’ pliers and started pullin’ out her teethies. One at a time till they were gone. I’s could tell mommy was hurtin’ cuz her whole body was shakin’ and puddles of water were fallin’ from her eyes. But, mommy never said a word and Dr. Ryan said mommy was the bestest patient he’d had in years. Then, he got a needle and thread and sewed mommy’s mouth together.

 

          He didn’t sew her mouth together Raena. He just sewed all the holes he just made shut.

 

 Raena lays in mommy's lap

 

Whatever sissy. Anyways, the assistant girly then put these fake teethies in mommy’s mouth and told her stuffs ‘bout comin’ in fur soft alignments and one final hard alignment in 6 months. Like we had a clue what she was talkin’ ‘bout. And then, when we were leavin’, Dr. Ryan gave mommy a big ole teddy bear hug and said he’d be purrayin’ fur her. And yes, mommy started cryin’ all over again. We stopped at the Wally world to get mommy’s antibiotics and some Malt O Meal and headed home. Seems mommy had 4 more teethies in her sinuses and 3 of the lower ones were embedded in a nerve. So, mommy has a sinus headache on top of her regular migraine, and besides her face and neck bein’ all swollen, part of her face is a little numb still. Dr. Ryan, said it’d take a week or two fur her face and neck to shrink back to normal size and the feelin’ should return in a few days to a week. Seems nopawdy told mommy just how much pain and discomfurt she would have durin’ this healin’ purrocess. 

 

 Dezi gets loving while laying on the arm of chair-selfie

Me’s takin’ great care of mommy.

 

 

          Yeah, and since her migraines mess with her vision, we haven’t been on the catputer very much. And, the pain and feelin’ of the fake teethies have made it a little difficult fur mommy to eat even the Malt O Meal, so we’ve all been nappin’ a lot. But, most ‘purrtantly, mommy says, this is all tempurrary and shall pass. And, when it does, she’s gonna feel sooooooo much better. So, we wanna say a meowsy big fank you to all those who helped to make this pawssible. Fank you awnty Kathleen, awnty Carol, awnty Theresa, awnty Kat, awnty Suzanne and LouLou, the sweetest Tuxie Princess Erin and her peep, awnty Kerry and Valentine, awnty Vonda, awnty Anonymous, awnty Claire, Zorro and Pixie (The Swiss Cats), awnty Petal, awnty Debbie, Katie and Waffles (Glogirly), Our sweet furiends Amarula, Frodo and Zulu from Hairballs and Hissyfits, awnty Jullea, awnty Gretel, awnty Cindy, awnty Julie and all our Anonymous Angels. We wanna say fanks to uncle Pete, Timmy and the gang fur helpin’ to calm mommy’s nerves. Ya’ brought her back from the edge Fursday so she could make her ‘pointment. And, we wanna fank you all fur the purrayers and well wishes. Keep those purrayers comin’ ifin ya’ don’t mind.

  

 Raena lays on nip mat on Liberty cat tree

 

Oh sissy, we are so very blest. Not only do we have the mostest wonderful mommy in the universe, we have the greatest furiends in any universe. Even mommy, who can’t talk so good right now, agrees, that we are most assuredly blest. And she wanted to ‘pawlogize to us and everypawdy fur our absence. Unfurtunately, she needs a couple more days to get sorted out, so our big pawrty is still on, just postponed a bit.

 

 Dezi lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

          Yep Raena, that’s the mommy we know and luv. We will always find the blessing, the rose bud among the thorns. And, we wanna remind all of you to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your life. 

 

We’re also gonna join up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. C’mon sissy, let’s go give mommy a massage and have a little nap.

 

Till the next time…………………………………….Be Blest!!!

Chatting Cats: We Can See A Bright Light At the End of the Tunnel

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Looks like I’s might get to lead every Wednesday. At least fur the summer. The lawn crew seems to have chosen this day to annoy us this year. And, does this sound furmiliar? We’re preppin’ fur yet another inspection this month. Befur ya’ get your knickers in a ruffle like mommy does, NO, it’s not legal to bother us this much. The law says management can pull those silly inspections, exterminations, etc., but they must not exceed 1 purr month. Everythin’ that they wanna look at and do, excludin’ maintenance requests, must be done at the same inspection. Do these peeps care what the law says? you know the answer to that one. Anyways, let’s get to the happy stuffs.

 

 Raena looks up at Dezi while they sit on the Liberty cat tree

 

          (Dezi meows loudly from the bedroom door) There’s happy stuffs to meow ‘bout Raena?

 

Oh yes, sissy. Yesfurday’s ‘pointment went purrfectly. 

 

Dezi hides in bedroom and Raena heads down hall to her

 

          (Dezi slinks halfway down the hall towards the living room and meows) Oh yeah, yesfurday’s news was happy news Raena. We’re so glad to furinally get some good news on the dental front fur mommy. (Dezi hears the leaf blower on the porch and runs back to the bedroom

 

I’s agree sissy. By now, most of you know that mommy’s been dealin’ with some really bad teeth issues fur quite a few years. Fanky fankfully, she started down the path to remedy those purroblems earlier this year. Anyways, yesfurday mommy trekked back to Ardmore to meet yet another dentist and get a quote to finish up and get the dentures she so badly needs. Let me tell ya’, it was some kind’a hot out yesfurday, but fanky fankfully, the a/c was workin’ and runnin’ full blast. We actually arrived fur mommy’s ‘pointment a few minutes early. That’s a big deal. Fur the last few years, mommy’s been late to almost everythin’. Mommy finds that a little annoyin’ as she was always the purrson to arrive at least 15 minutes early fur everythin’. But, she ain’t gettin’ any younger, so, I’s guess lateness is just one of those things that she’s gonna have to get used too.

 

 Raena laying in stroller at dentist

 

Anyways, the office seemed quite comfy and relaxed, and the folks at the front desk were really furiendly. Mommy signed in and sat down to wait her turn. She didn’t have to wait fur long befur they was callin’ her to the back. They took some new x-rays and put her in a room and asked a few questions to purrpare her fur the doctor. After a few minutes alone watchin’ some silly movie on the small screen in front of her, a nice and very purretty lady walked in and innerduced herself as Doctor Amy. You know mine’s mommy, she’s always tellin’ peeps how nice they look and this was no exception. Mommy actually told her that she was too purretty to be a dentist. MOL They all had a good laff and Doctor Amy went in to look at mommy’s remainin’ teethies.

 

 Profile of Dezi sitting on the floor and looking toward the door

 

          Ya’ know Raena, me will never unnerstand why they always ask questions while they’ve got fingers and tools inside mommy’s mouth. Me doesn’t know how in the world they can unnerstand anythin’ mommy’s sayin’. 

 

Me either sissy, me either. Nevertheless, mommy and doctor Amy had a back and furth mumble and came up with a plan. They’re gonna pull the rest of mommy’s teeth except the 2 canines on the bottom. Apparently, lower dentures can be quite a purroblem what with movin’ ‘round, becomin’ dislodged and even fallin’ out without some kind of anchor. Ya’ know, like that denture glue or somethin’. So, in mommy’s case, that anchor is gonna be those 2 canines. Technically, mommy will need what they call a partial on the bottom, and a full denture on the top. 

 

          (Not hearing the loud noises from the lawn crew anymore, Dezi heads back down the hallway towards the living room) Well, Raena, me’s glad they could figger out a way fur mommy to keep those things in place. Wouldn’t that be just to funny fur mommy to be talkin’ to someone and have her teethies fall out in her lap. MOL 

 

 Dezi and Raena playing on floor

 

That would be funny, sissy. But, I’s glad mommy won’t have that purroblem. Let me tell ya’ how it’s all gonna work. Mommy goes in next Monday to have impressions made so they can make her new teethies, called a plate or denture. She chose the cheap one that comes with a 6 month warranty and no frills. After havin’ those impressions made, mommy will make a ‘pointment to have all those top teethies removed. She has 4 more teethies in her sinuses, so looks like she’ll be takin’ more Sudafed and not blowin’ her nose again fur a while. The cost fur all this is $1,219.00.

 

 Dezi sniffs tree ledge while Raena watches her

 

The day she has all those top teethies removed she’ll need to make another ‘pointment to have the bottom teethies removed. She’s gonna have to separate her ‘pointments cuz she doesn’t yet have enuff green papers to get it all done at the same time. Altho’ we do have our paws crossed, that by the time the dentures are made, we’ll have all the green papers and mommy can just do it all at the same time. The bottom cost is a bit higher than the top cuz they have to create teethies with a gap and wires to account fur those canine anchors they’re leavin’ in mommy’s mouth. The cost of the bottom is, $1,799.00.

 

          Let me see ifin me can simplify these nummers Raena.

Cost of top teeth removal and full denture, including adjustments as mommy’s mouth heals and shrinks:

  • $1,219.00

Cost of bottom teeth removal and partial, including adjustments as mommy’s mouth heals and shrinks:

  • $1,799.00

This all comes to a total cost of:

  • $3,018.00

We’re gonna guestimate the cost of Sudafed and other medicines at ‘round:

  • $200.00

Mommy currently has: $1,800.00.

So we need a total of:

  • $1,418.00 by the end of July

 

 Dezi and Raena and mommy A in a frame collage

We luv our mommy so very much. We want her to be the bestest

she can be, and the happiest she can be. So, we need your help,

cuz we can’t actually make any green papers.

 

 

That’s great sissy. Fanky fanks fur simplifyin’ it like that. We’re gonna open a new fundraiser with the new figgers. Here’s the linky fur the new fundraiser: Help Mommy A and of course, you can always donate directly to our paypal at: lexi.dezi@yahoo.com . That’s lexi (dot) dezi (at) yahoo (dot) com. Because of the credit card fees, you’ll see the fundraiser is set at $1,500.00 so we can cover those charges and still get the actual amount needed. Anythin’ extra will go towards our care.

 

 Dezi and Raena lay atop the Liberty cat tree

 

          We really ‘purreciate all your help and support and purrayers. Even ifin ya’ can’t donate, purrlease share. Ya’ never know who might be out there that could help mommy. And, ifin anypawdy knows where mommy can sell her gold crown, purrlease let us know. They’ll be pullin’ it out soon and mommy would luv to be able to put that money towards her care or ours.

 

 Raena lays on shower bench

 

You got that right sissy. We have the bestest furiends in the universe. I’s just know we’ll be able to get mommy to the other side of this soon. Now, the lawn crew’s gone, so let’s go play.

 

Till the next time………………………………………………Be Blest!!!

Blest Sunday: All Partied Out

MeOW Raena, did you enjoy your pawrty? 

 

 Dezi and Raena on Liberty Cat Tree

 

          Oh sissy, I’s sure did!!! What fun. And so many of our pawsum furiends came by. I’s such a blest kitty girly.

 

 Dezi kneads cat bed

 

Yep Raena, we sure are. Me had a great time too, even tho’ it is stormin’ here. Me’s gotta tell ya’, you looked so funny chasin’ those nip bubbles ‘round the house. Mommy even found one you missed this meownin’ when she sat down in the sittin’ lift chair. 

 

 Raena on the Liberty Cat Tree

 

          Those bubbles sure are a lot of fun. All those red dot kitties don’t know nuffin’ ‘bout disappearin’ prey. Every time I’s thought I’d caught one, it was gone. One even hit me on the nose, but befur I’s could ketch it, it disappeared.

 

MOL  Me saw that, Raena. We don’t play the red dot game here, cuz mommy says we’re too smart curious. ‘Stead of tryin’ to ketch the red dot, we go straight fur the source; the light in mommy’s hand. Mommy says that’s dangerous fur kitties to stare into the lasered red dot. But we did enjoy those bubbles. 

 

 Raena lays on back of chair

 

          Yeah sissy, it’s too bad mommy ran outta breath, cuz I’s sure was havin’ fun chasin’ all the bubbles.

 

Well, there was lots of bubbles still floatin’ ‘round in the air even after mommy ran outta breath. Me’s sure she’ll play the bubble game with us again. ‘Specially now that she knows we like ‘em.

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

          I’s sure hope so sissy. Did you see all the cards I’s got yesfurday (blog links listed as comment)? And, I’s can’t wait till the weather clears up enuff fur us to have mine’s Birthday pizza. Awnty Anonymous sent mommy some green papers and told her to get us a Birthday pizza. But since you hang out UTB when it storms, mommy said we have to wait to have it, so you can enjoy it too. Maybe ya’ oughtta think ‘bout not hidin’ away so much.

 

Me’s not hidin’ Raena, me’s just bein’ safe. All the news peeps say to stay away from windows and glass durin’ storms. So there. Me’s the smartest kitty in the house. 

 

          Yeah, Okay sissy, you’re not hidin’, you’re just bein’ “safe”. MOL 

 

You won’t be laffin’ ifin any of those storms actually break our windows while you’re lookin’ out. 

 

 Bird's nest with baby birds

 

          But sissy, that birdy that built her nest in one of mommy’s old pot baskets is so much fun to watch. Did you hear her callin’ mommy names the other day?

 

 Bird nest with babies

 

Me sure did Raena. Now that was funny. Mommy went out to trim the wisteria, and that ole momma bird was so mad. She flew into the big old oak tree in our front lawn and squawked and cackled at mommy the whole time she was out there. Guess she didn’t know that mommy would never hurt her babies. The really funny pawrt was when she came flyin’ in fur the attack when mommy was tryin’ to take fotos of her babies. 

 

          Oh sissy, that was funny. Mommy was tryin’ to swoosh her away with one hand and focus on the babies with the other. Mommy’s wanted to take more fotos, cuz the baby birds be growin’ so fast, but she doesn’t wanna face the wrath of momma bird again. MOL  Mommy didn’t get any fotos of the momma bird. Mommy says she wouldn’t coopurrate. MOL 

 

Yep Raena, mommys’ sure can be furocious when they’re purrtectin’ their young; no matter what size they are, or the purredators size.

 

 Raena lays draped across the back of the chair

 

          You’re so right sissy. And mommy unnerstands that cuz that’s the way she feels ‘bout us. 

 

Sure ‘nuff, Raena. We are blest to have such a pawsum mommy. Speakin’ of mommy, we need to update everypawdy ‘bout her complications. Ya’ know, we told everypawdy that mommy’s upper teeth has roots that were embedded in her sinuses. That’s not a good thing. But mommy was followin’ all the instructions and bein’ really careful, so when she went in fur her recheck, the surgeon was really purrleased with how well mommy was healing. But, she had a stitch that had been hangin’ down, and rubbin’ her tongue fur days. When the doctor looked at it, she said it was ‘bout to fall out, so she went ahead and removed it. They thought everythin’ was fine till the next meownin’. Altho’ thinkin’ it was a fluke, mommy didn’t call the doctor that day. And then the same thing happened off and on all last weekend. So furst thing Monday, mommy called the doctor to report that she now had an openin’ into her sinuses. ‘Pawrently, that stitch was holdin’ that hole closed.

 

          I’s got really worried ‘bout mommy, sissy. Cuz she said it’s not just gross and aggravating, it also hurts. Fankfully, the dentist put mommy on another round of antibiotics, more Sudafed and told her not to blow her nose fur another 2 weeks. 

 

 Dezi kneads and suckles the cat bed

 

Yep, Raena. They’re hopin’ the hole will close on it’s own so mommy won’t have to have another more serious surgery. And the antibiotics are to help make sure mommy doesn’t get an infection. Seems the Sudafed is harder to get than mommy’s purrscription meds. ‘Pawrently, the active ingredient is used a lot here to make meth. What does mommy know ‘bout meth and drug makin’? Anyways, mommy can only buy a certain nummer of boxes a day, week and month. And she has to sign fur them, and purrvide her drivers license and get her foto taken each time. One box lasts one day. Is that crazy or what? Me sure hopes she doesn’t have to take this stuff fur long. 

 

          Me too sissy. We’ve been so blest, that mommy hasn’t had any more purroblems, so we’re purrayin’ really hard fur this hole to close soon, so mommy can start feelin’ better and get on to the other bad teethies.

 

 Dezi lays all stretched out in the chair

 

Yes we are Raena. And we’re so blest to have so many furtastic furiends to help us purray fur mommy. Every time we think ‘bout our furiends, we are so humbled to be so blest. From purrayers to luv and suppurrt and even gifts, we have the bestest furiends in the universe. We wanna remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. We’re gonna wrap it up now and get some rest. We’re all pawrtied out.

 

 Raena sleeps on birthday nip mat on the Liberty cat tree

 

          Speak fur yourself sissy. (Raena yawns) I’s not pawrtied out. MOL  We’re joinin’ the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies.

Blest Sunday: Purrs, Prayers and Friends Make Things Better

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We’ve been gone fur like fur-eeeeever, right? And OMC  You should see the skies and hear the rumblin’ goin’ on ‘round here. I’s thought Spring was s’posed to be here? Really, everypawdy’s been sayin’ it, and everypawdy can’t be wrong, right?

 

 Raena lays on the back of the chair while Dezi looks up at her from the seat of the chair

 

          RaenaBelle, what are you meowin’ ‘bout now? 

 

Everythin’ sissy. Ya’ know we’ve been away fur like…

 

          Yeah, knock it off with that valley cat mew, you’re a Southern Belle. Besides, we told everypawdy we’d purrobably be gone till Blest Sunday. You know, mommy has such a high tolerance to meds, that they have to give her so much to knock her out, it stays with her fur a few days. They’re always in a hurry to wake her up and send her on her way, so that medicine’s just sittin’ there waitin’ to kick in the minute mommy stops. Mommy’s usually wiped out a couple days after a surgery, but right as rain the day of. We call that a blessing. All went well, and mommy can crash at home. 

 

 Raena sits posing in her tiger harness

C’mon mommy, I’s all dressed and ready to go.

 

I’s fur sure didn’t like her leavin’ us here at home, but she was just as chatty when she got home as she was when she left. I’s could hear mommy and her ride in the pawrkin’ lot. They were laffin’ it up befur and after. You know all the nosy neighbors was peekin’ out their doors and windows wonderin’ what was goin’ on. 

 

 Dezi lays on top of cat tree ledge

 

          Yep, and mommy could hear you all the way in the pawrkin’ lot too. Fur those of ya’ that don’t follow us on Facebook, we’ll give you a mommy update now. Mommy pawrently has low sinuses and a couple of the teeth had roots embedded in the sinuses. So mommy isn’t allowed to spit, blow her nose or use a straw fur 2 weeks. One of the lower teeth (a wisdom tooth), was really close to the nerve that controls the feelin’s fur the jaw, lip and chin. So, again, no nose blowin’, spittin’, or straw usage. Don’t want mommy getting’ a dry socket or infection that could lead to paralysis. Mommy also found to her chagrin, No air smooches. Cuz of these complications (pawssible) the dental surgeon wants to see mommy again April 13th just to make sure all is well. Mommy’s lower lip is still a bit numb, but she’s got mouth and jaw exercises she’s doin’ and massages to purrvent swellin’. She’s takin’ an antibiotic and has a swish she uses 3 times a day.

 

Mommy’s not allowed to eat solid foods fur a whole 2 weeks, and then only soft foods like mac and cheese, waffles/pancakes, baked and smashed taters and pasta; we need to get some Hunts pasta sauce, since mommy ate up all those cans awnty Anonymous sent. Right now she’s eatin’ ice cream, and baked smashed taters. She was gonna get some Malt o Meal hot cereal, but there wasn’t any at da stores here. Mommy doesn’t eat “sick foods” like soups, puddin’s, jello, or fruit sauces/baby foods. Yes, she knows they would be good fur her, and ya’ll don’t unnerstand why she doesn’t like those kinds of things; but, she never has. She didn’t grow up eatin’ those kinds of things and never developed a taste fur them.

 

          Yep Raena, we learned somethin’ really innerestin’ last night. Some peeps call those kinds of foods comfurt foods. But those of us from the South, think somethin’ totally different when ya’ say comfurt foods. Mommy says, she starts envisionin’ chicken fried steak, baked taters and dinner rolls, or chicken and dumplins and bis-kits or roast beef, roasted taters and bis-kits. And of course, baked 3 or 4 cheese mac and cheese is always considered a comfurt food. Anyways, mommy’s doin’ the bestest she can and we’re bein’ the bestest nurses ‘round and takin’ really good care of her.

 

 Raena sits and poses in her new tiger harness

Could you leave this sweet kitty girl face behind?

Even ifin it’s fur just a few hours?

 

 

And even tho’ I’s not happy ‘bout mommy leavin’ us behind, I’s really glad that her ride is/was such a nice lady. Cuz mommy furgot to ask ifin we could use names, we’ll call her, Mrs. Navy. That’s right, she’s a Navy Vet and so is her husband. They also be Christians and attend one of the churches mommy used to play the piano fur. Mommy says they had great conversation goin’ and comin’ home. Yep, mommy was wide awake and totally alert fur the ride home (see sis Dezi’s paragraph above regardin’ medicines and mommy’s tolerances). Anyways, there’s still work to be done in mommy’s mouth when she heals from this purrcedure. So ifin you’d like to donate, you can do so by givin’ directly to our PayPal at: lexi.dezi@yahoo.com or the Fundraiser here

 

           Yep Raena, hopefully we’ll be able to get mommy’s mouth all fixed up soon. We’d like to say a meowsy big Fank you to The Swiss Cats fur their donation to the fundraiser. Mommy sounds so funny right now. It’s amazin’ how missin’ some teeth in key spots can make a difference in how some words and letters sound. MOL  And guess what else? Mommy can’t hiss right now. And Raena’s takin’ full advantage of that. Fank the cats mommy harvested the last of her lettuce early last week.

 

Are you implyin’ I’s bein’ naughty sissy? Cuz that just ain’t true. (Raena giggles under her breath) Mommy said she had to exercise, and I’s just tryin’ to help her out.

 

          Just her mouth, Raena. She’s not s’posed to be bendin’ over and cleanin’ up after you constantly. (Dezi shakes head)

 

Whatever, sissy. Anyways, we are so very blest, that everythin’ went well at mommy’s surgery, and that her ride was truly enjoyable and that she came home safe and sound to us. We’re blest that all those complications, haven’t been the purroblem they could have been. And we’re so blest to have the bestest, most suppurrtive furiends in the universe. Fank you all fur your luv, purrs and purrayers. Ifin ya’ don’t mind, keep ‘em comin’. Mommy’s still havin’ some pain and a mix of migraines and sinus headaches.

 

 Dezi lays in tiger harness

Me luvs me’s new harness, it’s da storms ragin’ outside

          Hey Raena, me wants to fank awnty Vonda fur me’s new harness and leash. Mommy furinally felt good enuff to get me measured and get it ordered. And it got here yesfurday, just in time fur those really noisy storms. Bein’ in a harness kinda helps me a little durin’ storms. Anyways, me’s now stylin’ right alongside of you. Me can’t wait fur the weather to clear up so me can go out and show it off.
