Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Hurry, gather ‘round, our playdate guest will be here any minute now. (Raena frantically surveys her kingdom to make sure everything’s picked up and clean. She wants her playdate to feel welcome) Sissy, are you ready, Prancie’s gonna be here soon?. Why don’t you ask mommy ifin we can put some silvervine down on the scratchers. I’s bet Prancie would luvs that.
Raena, calm down. Me’s sure Prancie will have fun. Besides, we’re gonna have a story time with her new book. You know, the one awnty Ellen sent us to review. There’ll be purrlenty of time to play later. Now, help me set up our tunnel pawtal so she doesn’t smack into the door. (Dezi and Raena get the tunnel set up and have a quick bath before Prancie arrives. Suddenly they hear the swoosh of the portal) Hurry Raena, she’s here!!!
Hey Prancie, good to see ya’ girl. How was your trip? Wanna lay down on the scratcher and rest a minute? We’ve been lookin’ furward…
RaenaBelle!!! Calm down, let her ketch her breath fur kittens sake. Sorry ‘bout her Prancie, she only has one speed and it’s full on all the time.
No problem Dezi, there’s a few of those at my house too. With so many siblings, you can always count on mayhem. And in the 13 years I’ve lived at my house, I’ve seen it all. Thanks for inviting me over girls, I’m happy to be here. This scratcher is pretty comfy.
It is, isn’t it Prancie. Besides mommy’s lap, it’s purrobably our next favorite seat. So, do have any besties at your house?
Well Raena, Phoebe and I hit it off right from the start. I pretty much get along with everybody, but yeah, I’d say Phoebe was my bestie. She is missed. (Prancie drifts off in memory for a minute)
Let’s meow ‘bout your book fur a minute Prancie. We luvved readin’ your story. Altho’ me has to admit, it made us very sad that somepawdy could kick you out into the cold mean streets. We’re such pam-purred pusses, we can’t even ‘magine what you must’ve went thru.
It was quite a shock to me too Dezi. It got so cold, and I was so hungry, I almost gave up. My ears were so cold and then they weren’t. Part of them died and fell off. It sure was a rough life. When I saw that manger with fresh hay part of me wanted to just curl up in it and die. But, when I saw the people who would become my forever family, a little spark of hope welled up inside me and gave me the strength to ask God and them for help.
Ooh Ooh, that’s mine’s second favorite pawrt, Prancie. Mine’s favoritest pawrt is when awnty Ellen and uncle David adopted you and let you stay with them.
Well Raena, my dad wasn’t my biggest cheerleader at first. But, I finally wrapped him around my paws. I’m a big daddy’s girl for sure. One of my favorite things is the chicken he feeds me off his plate. As you all would say, I’m one blest kitty, that’s for sure.
I’s luvs the pics.
You sure are Prancie. I’s know sissy and me are so Blest to have you and your whole family as furiends. We think your ears give you character. We know ya’ll didn’t include the story of your ears in your book, but we’re glad you meowed ‘bout ‘em here. Peeps need to unnerstand, that just cuz we kitties have furs doesn’t mean we don’t get cold and suffer from weather the same as they would. We think your book would make a purrfect gift fur any occasion. And, with Christmas comin’ soon, we hope it makes it unner the tree fur lots of little humans.
We should tell everypawdy where they can get their own copy girls. It’s available on amazon and Barnes and Noble fur $12.95. And, peeps can also order it directly from you and awnty Ellen at 15andMeowing.com fur $10.00. You can also get the kindle version fur $2.99. All proceeds go to help suppurrt all the kitties livin’ with Prancie and awnty Ellen.
Thanks Dezi. I also brought a copy to give away. Mom says we’ll ship it anywhere in the U.S..

Fanky fank you Prancie and awnty Ellen. We luvs give aways. We hope all our U.S. readers get in on this. And fanky fank you fur comin’ fur a playdate. We totally luvved your book. We also learned that awnty Ellen has a degree Elementary Education and that’s what sparked her idea to write your story as a children’s book. Like ya’ll, we believe that all kitties and even woofies deserve luvvin’ furever homes. The ‘purrtant thing to ‘member, is that kitties don’t act out of spite. There’s no bad kitty. Like Prancie, we purray that all anipals know the luvs and warmth of a furever home. And now, it’s time to play!!!

RaenaBelle and Deztinee
Dezi: MeOW C’mon Raena, it’s Blest Sunday. Me wants to count our Blessings.
At least this plastic’s a little cool.
Raena: How can you even think in this heat, sissy? I’s just wanna find a cool place to lay and stretch out fur a good nap.
Dezi: Purrlease Raena, It’s been hotter than this befur. We live in the South, and heat’s just a pawrt of it.
Raena: Yeah sissy, but not in the house. The house is s’posed to be cool. Isn’t that what the air conditioner’s fur? Even mommy’s sweatin’. I’s heard her say last night that we were way past the glistenin’ of a Southern lady and well on our way to sweatin’ like pigs in a smoker.
Dezi: Me heard her Raena. Me even got me’s fur soaked when me sat in her lap fur a little lap luvvin’. She said the air conditioner wasn’t workin’ purr-opurrly. Me saw her turn it down several times. And me heard her yellin’ at it to work. She said it ain’t s’posed to be 80 degrees in here when the thremostat is set on 74°. She even tried the o’l human trick of hittin’ it. Hmmmpht Humans think that hittin’ electronics will somehow make ‘em work. Me’s never quite unnerstood that concept, but lots of humans do it.
Raena: MOL I’s seen it too sissy. So, are you meowin’ that it doesn’t actually work? Cuz you know, when I’s can’t get our ‘lectric toys to work, all I’s have to do is whacky paw ‘em a few times and they suddenly start workin’.
Dezi: There’s a big difference in you furinally whacky pawin’ the power button and humans slappin’ at the sides of a machine Raena. Anyways, least we have fans. Did you know that peeps used to think sweatin’ was a way to lose weight and get skinny? Sure ‘nuff, peeps used to pay good money fur stuffs to wrap themselves up in that would make ‘em sweat. Hmmmpht We didn’t have to pay anythin’ fur this. See? You can find a Blessing in everythin’, ya’ just have to look.
Raena: You’re right sissy. Altho’ I’s don’t think that losin’ weight pawrt works…mommy hasn’t lost anythin’. I’s mean, I’s didn’t put her on a scale or nuffin’, but…
Dezi: Of course me is Raena, me’s always right. Me’s older and wiser and…
Raena: You’re old alright sissy. I’s not so sure ‘bout that wiser thing, but ifin that’s what you wanna tell yourself…
Dezi: RaenaBelle Mayce, that’s not very nice.
Raena: Sorry sissy. Do you want a hug?
Me’s gettin’ purrlenty of luvvin’ from mommy.
Dezi: No Raena, stay back. Your ‘pawlogy’s enuff. By the way, do you see anythin’ innerestin’ outside?
Raena: Nope sissy, not a thing. I’s haven’t even seen any birds. I’s did see one of those annoyin’ gnats in your brekky a while ago tho’. Ifin you don’t want the gnats to steal it, you better go claim it.
Dezi: What ‘bout yours Raena? Ifin they’re tryin’ to steal me’s brekky, then they’re purrobaly in yours too.
Raena: Nah sissy, I’s finished mine’s a few minutes ago and I’s even had a few bites of yours. (Raena snickers a bit as she licks her paw and wipes her face) Guess I’s was purretty hungry this meownin’. Meowin’ of, we’re purretty Blest to have such tasty noms. And a mommy who only wants the bestest fur us.
Dezi: That we are Raena, that we are. And, a few of our facebook furiends got together and donated some green papers so mommy could have gas money to get back to the dentist fur some adjustments on her dentures. We sure do ‘purreciate everyone that helped. Meowin’ of furiends, we have the bestest furiends in the universe.
Raena: Oh sissy, I’s luvs our furiends so much. I’s wish we could all have a big get together and meet up fur to fur to flesh. Wouldn’t that be just wonderful?
Me’s ready fur more luvvin’ mommy.
Dezi: It would Raena. But fur now, we’ll just have to settle fur readin’ their stories and seein’ their fotos. As we do each week, we’d like to remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. And we wanna fank each of you fur bein’ Blessings in ours.
Raena: And don’t furget to check out all the Sunday Selfies over at the Kitties Blue. I’s gonna go back to mine’s purrch now and see ifin anything’s goin’ on outside.
Dezi: Me’s gonna go get some more lap luvvin’ Raena. Enjoy the purrch.

Deztinee and RaenaBelle
RaenaBelle, me sure wishes you’d act like a civilized cat and quit layin’ on the pawtty box. Some of us like a bit of purrivacy ya’ know?! And me’s tail isn’t a toy fur that matter. How would you like it ifin me whacky pawed your tail while you were usin’ the pawtty box. Or purrhaps you might get a laugh ifin me tried to trip you as you stepped outta the pawtty box, huh? RaenaBelle?!! Are you lissenin’ to me?
What’s that sissy? Did you meow somethin’? Hey, isn’t it Blest Sunday time?
(Dezi shakes her head) That selective hearin’ is gonna get you into trouble some day Raena. Me meowed purrlenty. But you’re right, it is Blest Sunday, and pawrt of fankin’ God fur our Blessings is furgivin’ those that have wronged us. So, me will furgive you fur tryin’ to trip me this meownin’, and yesfurday and the day befur and the day befur and the…
Uh, I’s think furgiveness isn’t s’posed to sound quite like that sissy. I’s think you’re just s’posed to furgive me and not actually count all the times or things you’re furgivin’ me fur. Anyways, fanky fank you. I’s furgive you too.
Fur What, Raena?! Me’s never done anythin’ to you.
What? Of course you have sissy. You eat mine’s dinner evey day. Even tho’ mommy tells you not too. But that’s okay, we’re furgivin’, and besides, mommy always makes me more when you’re not lookin’.
What?!!! (Dezi shakes her head) Whatever Raena. Is there anypawdy else you need to ‘pawlogize too? Or maybe you need to ask somepawdy to furgive you?
Nope, sissy, I’s good. How ‘bout you?
Ifin you’re good then fur sure me is, Raena. Me’s always a good girl.
Sure you are sissy. That’s why we can’t see the bathroom floor fur the piddle pads. Or the hallway floor fur that matter. All cuz you’re bein’ a good girl. Why don’t we ask mommy what she says to that?
Go ahead tattle tale. Don’t you know by now that it doesn’t matte what we do, mommy luvs us just the same?. Even you, you little pest. No matter what, mommy says we’re always Good Girls, her little angels.
I’s gonna tell mommy you’re bein’ mean to me and callin’ me names, sissy. You know she doesn’t like negative names. That’s why she calls us her little angels, even when we’re not actually actin’ like one.
Me’s sorry Raena. Kittens!!! Sometimes you can be such a brat. And me means that in the nicest pawssible sense. Let’s get to our Blessings. You know we’re the most Blestest kitty girls ever. We were reminded this past week just how Blest we truly are. While on facebutt (facebook) we were readin’ a few rescue stories of kitties saved from the mean streets of this world. It reminded us of our own humble beginnings.
So true, sissy. It doesn’t really matter where you get your start, what matters is how it all ends. Fanky fankfully, we didn’t have to wait very long fur our happily ever after, our furever story, but so many kitties do.
Life is good.
Yep Raena, our furever is amazin’ and filled with so much luv and so many pawsum furiends. We wish that ever kitty could find their happy furever, and we believe that some day that will happen. In the meantime, we’ll continue to do all we can to make that happen. We also wanna fank all of those who help kitties in need. Each life is purrecious and a Blessing. 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 life. Fank you all fur bein’ Blessings in ours.
Life is better than good.
Don’t furget our Sunday Selfies with the Kitties Blue, sissy.
Till the next time………………………………………………Be Blest!!!
