Hey everypawdy, it’s me RaenaBelle. Are ya’ll ready to pawrty?!! Well come on in and let’s celebrate. There’s food and fun fur everyone. I’s gotta tell ya’, you all look pawsitively gawjus in your masks. Sissy and I’s wanna fanky fank all of ya’ fur comin’ to celebrate with us. 9 years ago on November 1st, sis Dezi came into this world; and a couple of weeks later on the 22nd of November, she chose mommy to save her and be her furever mommy.
That’s true Raena. Me had no idea what me’s life was gonna be like that day; but me knew without any doubt that me belonged with mommy. Our life hasn’t always been easy or fun, but it’s the bestest life this kitty girl could have ever asked fur. Me got an amazin’ sissyfur in Lexi; and she innerduced me to this pawsum world of the innernet and all our furiends. Everypawdy come on in and make yourself at home.
Look’it sissy, I’s got an ice cream truck to come by so everypawdy could choose their favorite. You can even have seconds or thirds. (Raena giggles as she wipes a smidge of ice cream from her whiskers)
Looks like you’ve already had some ice cream Raena.
Well sissy, I’s had to try it out and make sure the ice cream man brought the good stuffs. I’s also hired a caterer to cook us up some tasty eats on the grill and bring veggie platters fur those who don’t eat meat. Don’t worry, ifin ya’ purrfur your meat raw, just let the grill master know. We don’t drink, so the catnip teas and nip juleps are the strongest drinks we have, but who needs alcohol to have fun…right?.
Sure ‘nuff Raena. Me will have a little of that nip tea. It will go purrfectly with that grilled rabbit.
(As Dezi walks over to get a nip tea, Raena motions for the band to come to the stage area.) Okay sissy, you go ahead. Why don’t you mingle and see who all showed up.
Good idea Raena. (Dezi begins to mingle) MeOW Scout Pete, it’s good to see you.
Scout Aetheling, me’s so happy you could make it.
And you too scout Tigger, fanks fur comin’.
Timmy, Einstein, did ya’ll bring the whole family? Well, me’s glad ya’ll could be here.
Hey, Shoko, Tyebe and Budd, so good to see me’s Canadian furiends.
Meow Annie, me knows you’ve been havin’ some medical issues, so me’s really glad you could make it. Ya’ know, we send up purrayers fur ya’ every night.
Hey Bella, Max, me’s so glad our Rotty furiends could make it.
Is that our new furiends Crystal and Daisy Mae? (As with all her guests, Dezi runs over and hugs Crystal and nose bumps Daisy Mae.)
Pipo, Dalton, (While heading for the stage, they stop briefly to be welcomed by Dezi) fanks fur comin’ and fur me’s pawsum birthday and gotchaday cards. Tell awnty Ingrid (Petcretary) me really ‘purreciates her helpin’ ya’ll.
Phenny, Nelson, our favorite Weim bros. Where’d ya’ll find mommy’s shoe? We better hide that UTB (under the bed). MOL
OMC Spike, is that you all the way from Scotland? Me sees you found one of the pawsum boxes to play in. So glad you could make it.
(Dezi looks over and sees her favorite black Persian) Valentine, me’s glad you’re here. It wouldn’t be a pawrty without ya’. Fanks fur comin’ gawjus. Did you bring your bestest princess, Erin? Oh, she’s meetin’ ya’ here later…cool.
Hey Prancie, Sammy, Penny, Joanie, good to see ya’ll. Is any more of the family here? Brody and Trouble are ‘round here somehwere? That’s okay, we’ll ketch up to ‘em shortly.
(As the guests mingle and enjoy games and tasty food, they suddenly hear Raena meowing from the stage) Hey sissy,I’s got a surprise fur ya’. Could I’s get everypawdy to join us in singing Happy Birthday to the bestest sissy ever. A one and a two and a three…
Happy Birthday and Gotchaday Dezi!!! We luvs you so much. And now, I’s would like to let mommy say a few words.
Thank you Raena dear. Happy birthday my sweet sweet Dezi darlin’. The day I met you and you chose me to love was one of the greatest days of my life. You’ve brought me joy and happiness and so much love. I pray and ask God each day to give you a long and happy life with me. I can’t ever imagine a day without you in it. I also want to thank all of our friends for their love and support and for loving my girls. We pray every day and ask God to bless you and meet your every need.

(Dezi and Raena run to mommy A and head butt her and purr and coo as she holds them.) Fank you mommy, we luv you too. Now, let’s pawrty!!!
Everypawdy, stay and pawrty as long as you like. We celebrate all month long, so have fun!!! We also have a little contest goin’, so vote fur your favorite mask befur ya’ leave.

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!!!
