MeOW RaenaBelle, Hurry Up, it’s Blest Sunday and, your birthday celelbration!!! Mommy said she knew you were meant to be with us when she found out your birthday was exactly one week befur sis Lexi’s.
Raena: I’s here sissy. I’s sure wish I’s could’a met your sis Lexi. Mommy luvs her so much.
We both do, Raena. But, we luv you very much too. We don’t always unnerstand why God does the things He does, but we have to believe it’s fur a good reason. After all, ifin sis Lexi hadn’t gone to heaven we would’a never had you in our family. And only the good Lord knows what would’a happened to ya’ then. What with your scrawnly little fluffy body and mucky eyes and nose, you didn’t stand a chance in that there cage you were livin’ in. It’s a wonder you could even see or smell. Mommy says she ‘members your furst night here with us. You’d never seen a toy or had room to run, and you were goin’ nuts. It’s like you didn’t know what to do furst.
Oh sissy, I’s barely ‘member any of that. I’s do ‘member the relief I’s felt when mommy said I’s was gonna live with her furever and ever tho’. That was the bestest day of mine’s life. Ifin I’s never celebrated another birthday it would be okay cuz mommy makes me feel special every day. I’s one Blest kitty girl fur sure.
Yep Raena, you got that right. Me just wishes every kitty in the world could know a little sliver of the happiness and security we do.
Fanky fank you Pipo and Dalton.
Me too sissy. Not only do we have a luvvin’ mommy and furever home, we’ve got the bestest furiends in the universe. I’s wanna fanky fank awnty Anonymous, awnty Vonda and awnty Susan fur mine’s birthday green papers. Mommy’s purromissed to take me shoppin’ to pick out somethin’ special fur me and fur you. After all, I’s luvs to share. I’s also luvs those fureeze dried kangaroo treats mommy got fur us. They sure were tasty. And, the weather’s warmed up enuff fur a stroll today. I’s can’t hardly wait. What a pawsum way to celebrate. Even tho’ mine’s birthday was technically last Caturday when it was rainin’ and fureezin’ cold out, this weekend’s much better. I’s think mommy’s way of celelbratin’ all month is just purrfect. I’s also wanted to fanky fank our furiends Valentine and awnty Kerry and Pipo and Dalton fur the pawsum birthday cards. I’s even got some of those great e-cards from awnty Vonda and awnty Jeanne and Purrseidon. Fanky fank you all so very much. And fanky fank you all fur celebratin’ mine’s 2nd birthday.
Raena, happy birthday beautiful. I love you very much. Each morning when I wake up and turn my head to see you sleeping beside me, reminds me just how very Blest I am. You and Dezi are the most important beings in my life and I wouldn’t want to imagine a day without you. Why don’t ya’ll wrap it up and we’ll go for a stroll.
Fanky fank you mommy. I’s ready to go fur mine’s stroll right now.
Happy birthday Raena. And ifin you can hear me sis Lexi, happy birthday to you too. Me bets heaven really knows how to throw a pawrty. We’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. And we’re also linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies.
Till the next time……………………………………..Be Blest!!!

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s never been so tired of a season in all mine’s 2 years. I’s so ready fur this Spring to show up. I’s beginnin’ to think she’s just a myth or somethin’. Have any of you seen her?
RaenaBelle, what in the world are you meowin’ ‘bout now? In all your 2 years huh? Do you even ‘member Spring from last year?
Well, not ‘zactly sissy, but I’s heard she brings warmer weather. You know, strollin’ weather. Not too hot, not too cold but just right.
Yeah, ‘bout that just right Raena, we live in the South where there’s really no such thing as just right. We may only see a couple of days of Spring befur Summer arrives with all her heat and humidity. (Dezi hears something besides the rain on the walk and runs to the door to look out. She sees the manager coming up the walk with a huge umbrella and hisses and runs for cover. Raena runs after her while looking back towards the door.)
Wait fur me sissy. Where are we goin’? (Mommy A goes to the door to be given a notice for a 2nd inspection of the month on next Monday. Raena turns around and crawls up into mommy A’s lap and begins a grooming session.) hmmmpht Another inspection mommy? I’s just don’t unnerstand why these peeps can’t just leave us alone. Who else in the world has intruders in their house every month, sometimes more than once?!! Guess you’ll have to do some cleanin’ mommy.
(Dezi returns to the living room to finish her breakfast. Raena jumps down and eats beside her) Me’s never unnerstood all these inspections either Raena. ‘Course, mommy did learn that they can’t legally intrude more than once a month, so we’ll have to see what happens next week. Anyways, how ‘bout a little birthday meow. Since we were outta town on your birthday and it rained so you didn’t get to do anythin’ special, mommy and me decided we’d have a little celebration fur ya’ this Sunday. It would’a been me’s sis Lexi’s birthday. Since she went to heaven, me’s sure she wouldn’t mind us celebratin’ your life on her special day. We’ll just have a small pawrty and then really throw a bash fur your Gotchaday in June.
That sounds pawsum sissy. I’s sure wish I’s could’a met your sis Lexi. She sounds really amazin’.
She was Raena. Mommy says God decided He needed her more than we did and took her back to heaven. Least she’s not sick or in pain anymore. Me really misses her sometimes, but me’s fankful fur the time me did have with her. So, we’ll plan a small pawrty fur Sunday. All of our furiends are invited and mommy says she’ll give us extra treats and playtime.
This is gonna be fun, sissy. I’s can’t hardly wait. Maybe even Spring will show up. Let’s finish brekky. All this rain makes me wanna take a nap.
Till the next time……………………………………Be Blest!!!

Dezi: MeOW C’mon Raena, it’s time fur Blest Sunday. And me’s feelin’ purrticularly Blest this week; how ‘bout you?
Raena: Me too sissy, me too. After all, mine’s 2nd birthday is comin’ up this Caturday the 21st. Are you gonna tell me what you and mommy are plannin’ to make it special?
Who says we’re plannin’ anythin’ Raena?
Uh, you did sissy and so did mommy. You both said there’d be no actual pawrty on mine’s big day, but ya’ll would make it up to me by doin’ somethin’ really special.
Oh that?! You’re right Raena. There’s no way we’d let your special day pass without doin’ somethin’ special fur ya’. Ya’ know, mommy said we’d throw you a huge bash on your Gotchaday this year ifin we toned down your birthday. But, that doesn’t mean we’re gonna totally furget ‘bout your birthday.
Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
Well fanky fank the cats. I’s was startin’ to think some of that mud mommy put on her hair had seeped into ya’ll’s brains.
Well Raena, you know why mommy was puttin’ that mud on her hair, don’cha?
Uh…Not really sissy, no.
(Dezi thinks back to the sight of mommy A with all that henna mud on her hair last night and how Raena kept tryin’ to dip her paw into the bowl and laughs.) Oh Raena, you know how vain mommy is. She wanted to cover up all her gray hairs, courtesy of none other than some sisfur who shall remain nameless, befur we went to meet furiends. Mommy’s been makin’ big plans fur us to meet some very special kitties and awnty Nora. She’s even planned fur us to spend a day at BlogPaws. All in celebration of your big day. It’s gonna be your very furst big road trip.
Well sissy, I’s know lots of peeps are talkin’ ‘bout this BlogPaws thingy, will I’s like it?
As much as you like to go out and meet peeps Raena, me’s sure you’re gonna like it. And let me tell ya’, there’s some pawsum swag that goes along with it. There’s no tellin’ what we’ll come home with. The year sis Lexi and me went, we brought home so many treats and noms and toys that the whole bed was covered in goodies. So, mommy says since it’s your birthday weekend you get furst choice of whatever you want from the swag bag. And, mommy plans on chattin’ it up with some of the brands to see ifin we can’t work out some quid pro quo with ‘em.
Quid pro quo? I’s didn’t know you meowed in Latin sissy. What ‘zactly does that mean anyways?
Uh, well, it just means we hope they’ll give us somethin’ that we can use and share with our furiends. And they get the honor of us meowin’ ‘bout it. After all, who could say no to our bootyful faces?
Hmmmmm That does sound like fun, sissy. I’s gettin’ really x’cited. I’s also wanna fanky fank awnty Vonda fur sendin’ me some birthday green papers. I’s haven’t picked out mine’s actual purresent yet, but I’s can’t wait to go shoppin’. Maybe I’s can go shoppin’ while we’re on our trip.
Maybe Raena. There’ll be purrlenty of time fur you to choose your gift. Mommy says cuz we’re gonna be travelin’ and away from home most of this week, we’re gonna take the week off.
Not completely sissy. Mommy says that altho’ we won’t be writin’ blog posties till our next Blest Sunday, we will be keepin’ in touch every now and then thru our other social media sites. She also said ifin she can figger out how to work this smarty pants fone, we could actually do a couple of live videos from awnty Nora’s and the conference. That would mean we could actually meow with our furiends in real time.
Yep Raena, that sounds like fun too. Ifin you’re not already followin’ us on facebook, instagram or twitter, and would like to take pawrt in our trip, then be sure to click the follow button on our pages; just click the links above. You can also send us a furiend request on facebook: we’re Alexandra-Deztinee High.
We better wrap it up sissy and start packin’ our bags. This is quite a Blessing. Havin’ the oppurrtunity to meet up with furiends and spend time with them, is out of this world special fur us and one of our favorite things to do.
You’re right Raena. Me fur sure wants to take the nip nanners, how ‘bout you? 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 life. Big or small, we’re all Blest to have another day to give Fanks fur.
I’s fanky fankful fur mommy, our home, our fuiends, and the oppurrtunity to take this trip. We’re also linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. We’ll see you all soon.
Till the next time……………………………………………Be Blest!!!
