MeOW C’mon Raena, it’s Blest Sunday, and we have lots of things to meow ‘bout today. As you know, today is mommy’s birthday and Memorial day weekend. This month has just flown by.
It sure has sissy. How old do ya’ think mommy is? Do ya’ reckon she’ll tell us this year?
All me knows Raena is that she’s old, as in wrinkles and gray hair and creakin’ bones old. Me’s not sure even she ‘members how old she is Raena. Ya’ know, they say the memory’s the furst thing to go. MOL
Oh sissy, I’s don’t think mommy would find that so funny. But, I’s do agree that mommy’s memory ain’t what it used to be. Anyways, I’s don’t really care how old she is, I’s just glad she’s our mommy. I’s do luvs her whole bunches. You know she always puts us furst. Y, she got some green papers fur her birthday and ended up spendin’ most of ‘em on us. Seems that Drs. Foster and Smith place had our Primal Freeze Dried Rabbit noms on sale fur half purrice. We don’t think we’ve ever seen ‘em that cheap anywhere. So, mommy used her special money to get us a few bags.
Yep Raena, we do have a good mommy, that’s fur sure. We do wanna say a meowsy big Fank you to awnty Vonda, awnty Susan, awnty Anonymous, and awnty Ingrid, Pipo and Dalton fur mommy’s birthday money. Mommy cried a lot of happy tears this past week.
She did sissy. And then she cried some more when she got the box from my kitty godmommy awnty Ellen. Mommy luvs exotic house plants. Rumor is that she used to have a whole house full. Anyways, one of her favorite plants is the maranta, better known as the purrayer plant cuz it closes it’s leaves at night to resemble praying hands. When mommy opened up the box from awnty Ellen, she saw the purrettiest purrple leaves pawppin’ out all over the place. ‘Course we had to check it out too. We could smell somethin’ emanatin’ from inside that box that really caught our attention. Sure nuff, awnty Ellen hadn’t furgotten ‘bout us. We got one of those furtastic pieces of silvervine toast each. I’s ‘member when Sammy modeled his fur their posty. That awnty Ellen is so clever. Who would’a thought ‘bout makin’ silvervine toast?
Me sure did enjoy that toasty Raena. You’re right ‘bout awnty Ellen. She is so very talented. We luv all her Made with Luv goodies. You slobbered all over your toasty and then tried to steal me’s one. Hmmmpht That wasn’t happenin’. MOL
You were s’posed to share sissy. ‘Stead, you flopped your floofy big hiney down on your toasty and hid it.
Oh divine silvervine, me luvs you.
You had your own Raena, and me didn’t want slobber all over me’s toasty piece. Fank you soooooooooooooo much fur includin’ us awnty Ellen. The silvervine toast was a big hit.
Sure nuff. Fanky fank you awnty Ellen. Sissy, can you x’plain a bit ‘bout Memorial day? Peeps keep sayin’ happy memorial day and I’s don’t know what’s so happy ‘bout it.
Yeah Raena, me doesn’t get the happy pawrt either, me thinks peeps just don’t know what else to say. Memorial day is the day set aside to pay homage to those men, women and anipals that died while serving in the military. Me knows fur sure, that we ‘member them and their families every single day. Ifin not fur them, our country and way of life wouldn’t exist. The freedoms we have, wouldn’t exist. This country is great because of those willing to fight and die to make it so. No where else in this world has the freedoms and rights that the U.S. does. And shame on those who want to tear it down. The next time you complain about the government or somebody saying/posting something you don’t like or agree with, remember, you have the right to do that because someone died to make it so.
I’s sure am fanky fankful fur all those who gave their lives so we could live in such a pawsum country sissy. I’s so fanky fankful fur their families who suffered loss, fur the children who lost mothers or fathers to wars on distant shores. Sometimes peeps furget, the soldier serving and fighting should be at the top of our purrayer list, but their family serves as well. So, to all those soldiers who never came home, we salute you and purromiss not to take the freedoms your lives bought us fur granted.
Yep Raena, we are blest to have been born in the U.S. and mommy and me join you in saluting each and every soldier. Thank you fur your service and your sacrifice. And to all those Vets and currently serving, we fank you as well. God Bless America. 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 lives.
We’re also joinin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. We are so Blest and wanna fanky fank you all fur bein’ our furiends. We luvs you all bunches and bunches.
Me couldn’t have meowed it better Raena. C’mon, let’s go give mommy some more birthday cuddles.
Till the next time…………………………………………..Be Blest!!!

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. It’s been so crazy ‘round here lately and we’re so far behind, I’s don’t think we’ll ever get all caught up. Then mommy goes and says somethin’ like “All caught up is a relative statement, baby. Sometimes, life has to take precedence over play. If we want to keep a roof over our heads, then mommy has things she needs to do to keep that roof. And that sometimes means spending time running errands, making copies, calls and getting together all pertinent paperwork to re-certify our lease.” Hmmmpht How am I’s s’posed to argue with that?
You’re not Raena, you’re just s’posed to accept it and be glad that mommy takes good care of us. Now, me thought we were gonna meow ‘bout that box we got just in time fur your Birthday last month.
We are sissy, I’s was just makin’ sure mommy knows how furustrated I’s am ‘bout all the time she’s spendin’ doin’ things that don’t include us havin’ fun or visitin’ our furiends. But, you’re right, that was a purretty fun box we got. The peeps at Kit Nip Box sent us one of their pawsum subscription boxes just in time fur mine’s Birthday. Unlike mommy with her birthday purresent, I’s had to wait to open mine’s.
Why don’t we meow a bit ‘bout the KitNip Box befur we get to what was inside.
Good idea sissy. The KitNip Box is a monthly subscription box filled with goodies fur the felines in your home. They have 2 different box plans, $19.99 a month and $29.99 a month. Fur $19.99 you get 5 purroducts hand picked fur kitty and 7 in the $29.99 box. Boxes are shipped out on the 1st and 15th of each month and your credit card is charged 1 – 7 days prior to each shipment. They currently ship boxes to addresses in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia. Ifin ya’ live somewhere else, they say to call their customer service number to see what they can do to get a box to ya’. Shippin’ is furee fur the U.S. and $6.95 – $7.95 fur other countries.
Don’t furget to meow ‘bout the charity work Raena. Each month the KitNip Box peeps donate a portion of the proceeds and products to shelters, rescues, TNR efforts and other feline welfare causes, like the Paw Project, Wayside Waifs, SAAP and more. Y, any organization can apply fur help just by contactin’ ‘em.
We always luvs it when a company helps out those kitties less furtunate than us, don’t we sissy?. Anyways, let’s get on with the goodies inside that box. Our box had 5 toys and a bag of Pure Bites freeze dried fish treats; minnows the bag said. Let me tell ya’ those were the biggest minnows ever. Mommy says she used to fish and use minnows as bait, but, she’d never seen one as big as these. Seems the whole fish was freeze dried and cut into large chunks…too big fur us so mommy had to break up a piece befur we’d even look at it. As most of ya’ know, we’re not really fish eaters here and these treats were no x’ception. Uh huh, We weren’t havin’ ‘em. On to the toys. There was a couple different mousies that are just the right size fur carryin’ ‘round and playin’ with. And, there was a new wand toy with a soft plushie at the end.
That’s a big ole chunk ‘o minnow.
Did you see the umbrella Raena? Me still hasn’t figgered out what we’re s’posed to do with that?. Me kind’a liked the big yellow cat face. Mommy needs to soak it in some nip or silvervine and then it’ll be just purrfect to roll ‘round on. Ya’ know, as subscription boxes go, the KitNip box is okay. Me would give it 2 paws up, mostly cuz they give back to feline charities.
We received the KitNip Box in exchange for our honest opinion. As always, we tell it like we see it and only bring products we use or have tried and feel would be of interest to you, our readers and friends. All opinions expressed here are our own.
Yeah sissy, I’s agree. We’re purretty spoiled and have some of the bestest toys on the meow-kit. But, we think this would make a great gift fur any kitty in your life. I’s would give it 2 paws up as well. Mommy said she thought it was a bit overpriced, but it’s on purr/par with all the other subscription boxes out there. We were really x’cited that the peeps at KitNip Box are lettin’ our furiends and readers save 15% off their furst box when they use our special coupon code: DEZIZ. I’s sure did ‘purreciate receivin’ our box fur mine’s birthday. ‘Course I’s luvs gettin’ gifts any day of the week. Meowin’ of Birthdays, I’s hope we get somethin’ special fur mommy’s Birthday this weekend. You did meow that mommy celebrates us on her special days, right sissy?
She does Raena, but we should purrobably try to do somethin’ nice fur her too. Let’s go put our heads together and see what we can come up with.
I’s right behind ya’, sissy. I’s know the furst thing we can do is avoid purrjectile vomitin’. Anyways, we’ll see ya’ll soon.
Till the next time…………………………………………….Be Blest!!!

MeOW (Dezi sits atop the liberty cat tree looking out the door) It’s time fur Blest Sunday, so Thunderstorms, ya’ll just stay away. This is me’s day to post and me doesn’t wanna have to yell over ya’.
Raena: Sissy? Who are you meowin’ too, I’s don’t see anypawdy outside?.
Don’t worry ‘bout it Raena, it’s time fur Blest Sunday and me was just meowin’ how Blest we are. Spring, or rather Summer has furinally showed up and nature’s all a-flutter. The pawrents of those last birdies in the nest over the alarm on our door have been hangin’ on our walkway rails all day every day keepin’ watch over their babies and runnin’ off any other birdies that might come by fur a look see.
Yeah sissy, they sure have been fun to watch. They take up their stations at each end of the rail till some unsuspectin’ birdy comes along and then they start chatterin’ and swarmin’ the intruder.
Yeah Raena, they’re quite the sight to see. Me thinks a couple of cardinals teamed up the other day to see what it was they were purrtectin’.
I’s saw that sissy. While the pawrents were chasin’ one cardinal off another came swoopin’ in fur a close-up. ‘Course that mommy bird must not have been too fooled cuz she came divin’ outta the sky and chased off the other cardinal. It made fur some purretty x’citin’ bird teevee…fur ‘bout ten minutes. I’s wanna know where all the squirrels have gone off too? And where’s our Coon furmily that comes up fur spam?
Well Raena, maybe the Coons figgered out we were broke. The last time they came up askin’ fur spam, mommy gave ‘em an old can of expired chicken chunks instead. Me doesn’t think they liked it nearly as much as they do that canned meat bi-product. And with all the rain and thunderstorms we’ve been havin’ it’s purrobably a little too wet fur ‘em. Mommy did see a bunny rabbit the other day. By the time she got the car door open and her new smeow-arty pants fone out and the camera app open, that bunny was long gone. Mommy even tried searchin’ fur him with the flashlight app on said fone; but, no bunny in sight.
That poor bunny must’ve thought mommy had one of those big woofies that chased him the other day.
Ya’ might be right Raena. Me would like to know where those woofies came from too? Me actually likes the big woofies much better than those heel nippers that run ‘round here without their humans, but our ‘pawrtments’ has a size and weight limit fur anipals and those woofies were fur sure too big. They might be the reason we haven’t had any squirrel teevee this year too?. They chase everythin’…even with their human attached to them by that leash. They just drag her right along with ‘em.
Yeah sissy, they may be funnier than squirrel teevee even. On another note, we need to say a meowsy big fanky fank ya’ to awnty Cindy. Mommy luvs the purrfume you sent fur her birthday. We luvs it too, don’t we sissy?
Yep Raena, and it’s gonna smell much better on mommy than it does on the carpet. Mommy just couldn’t wait 7 more days to open it. She jumped in the shower the minute she got it so she could put some on.
And then I’s nuzzled up next to mommy’s chest to smell her sissy. I’s do luvs it when mommy smells so good. It reminds me of the sweet smell of luvs I’s felt the day I’s met her fur the furst time.
Yeah Raena, me too. Anyways, this past week was full of Blessings fur all of us. Mommy saw her new dentist and really likes her. Mommy’s mouth is healin’ up nicely and she’ll be startin’ the purrocess to get her purrmanent dentures next month. We’re still waitin’ to hear from those nasty peeps at Aspen dental, but we’ve been purrayin’ that God will give us favor and make them return the green papers mommy gave them fur work they didn’t do; she needs it to pay the new place. Spring/Summer has arrived and brought warmer days and more Mr. Sunshine with her. That means we’ll be strollin’ befur long.
Ifin we can get rid of all the wets, sissy. We can’t go strollin’ in the rain and thunderstorms.
True Raena, but mommy says there’ll be purrlenty of dry days fur strollin’ soon. Anyways, mommy got that early birthday gift and reminded us how Blest we are to have such pawsumly amazin’ furiends. Fank you all fur sharin’ your lives with us. We luv you all very much. And as always, we’d like to remind you to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your life.
And don’t furget Sunday Selfies, sissy. We’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue like we do every week. We are furever Blest.
Furever Blest huh? Me likes that Raena. C’mon, let’s finish brekky and have a little nap befur the storms start up again.
Till the next time……………………………………………..Be Blest!!!
