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.

          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.

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

Hey, are ya’ll out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle, the Birthday girly. Are you ready to pawrty?? I’s know we’re late gettin’ mine’s pawrty posty out. Mommy’s havin’ some complications from her recent surgery that we’ll tell ya’ ‘bout in another posty, cuz today…it’s all ‘bout ME!!! Mommy and sissy said so. I’s such a blest kitty. I’s can’t hardly believe I’s been alive a whole year. And what a year it’s been. From a stinky dark corner cage to a furever home with a mommy who luvs and adores me, and the wide world of bloggin’. I’s could have never ‘magined how mine’s little life woulda turned out the day mommy came to save me.

Blest Sunday: Resurrection Sunday and a Chewy Box

MeOW What a week. We’re havin’ Montezuma type storms. Mommy says somethin’ ‘bout April showers bringin’ May flowers, but me doesn’t think these storms are gonna bring anythin’ good.

 

 Dezi lays in mommys lap for loving

 

          Hey sissy, I’s not think Montezuma storms is right. What does that even mean? 

 

It means they’re bad Raena. And ifin me wants to call them Montezuma storms, me can.

  

 Raena sniffs the treat bag from Chewy

 

          You’re right sissy. But other than the storms, it’s been a good week. We got good news ‘bout mommy, had a play date with furiends, and I’s got a Chewy box full of Birthday gifts. And now, it’s Resurrection Sunday.

 

 Raena checks out her Birthday loot from Chewy

 

That’s true Raena. No matter what else is happenin’ there’s always blessings in everythin’. Our church has been havin’ their annual Easter Campmeeting this week too. You know how much we luv mommy singin’, and all week there’s been lots of singin’ and worship. 

 

 Dezi bows her head to pray

 

          I’s luvs purrayer time too, sissy. You know, mommy always puts her hands on us and thanks God fur us and asks Him to keep us healthy and happy.

 

 

And we always purray fur our furiends and ask God to bless them and their furmilies and to send healing to those in need. We are sendin’ some extra purrayers today fur awnty Barb. We got word while we were purrpurrin’ this posty that our sweet furiend Nellie has left this world. We know sis Lexi and Nellie are zoomin’ like kittens again. They’re purrobably havin’ their own campmetting.  Campmeeting is always so much fun. It’s like Blest Sunday, every day. Me’s kinda sad it’s gonna be over.

 

 Raena framed with cross and crown of thorns

 

          Me too, sissy. But it’s endin’ on a good note, Resurrection Sunday. The day the peeps celebrate the resurrection of Jesus; the reason we can get answers to our purrayers.

 

 Dezi framed with Jesus carrying the cross

 

You’re right Raena, and so long as we keep Jesus in our hearts, we can actually continue to celebrate every day. Now, what did you get in that great Chewy box?

 

 click here to watch on youtube

 

          Oh sissy, I’s got one of those great Kong scratchers, some fuzzy mice, a great new wand toy, these really cool bubbles, treats and guess what else? We got our very own telepawtin’, time travelin’ tunnel!!! Now all our furiends can just transpawt over in no time. Can you believe it?

 

 Raena sniffs the treats from Chewy while standing on the Kong scratcher

 

That’s pawsum Raena. Me can’t wait to try out that tunnel fur meself. Can you believe mommy thought we’d be ‘fraid of those bubbles? They are so much fun. 

 

 Raena in a party hat, checks out her gifts from Chewy

 

          They sure are sissy. Mommy blew on this stick and bubbles went everywhere. And they lasted a long time too. Did you see mommy jump when she ran into one of those bubbles in the kitchen an hour after we stopped playin’?

 

 Raena starts to scratch her new Kong scratcher from Chewy

 

MOL  Me sure did Raena. That was sooooo funny. Me thinks she thought it was some kind of giant bug at furst. MOL  And hey, don’t furget the pawsum box all those gifts came in. 

 

 Dezi sits in a chewy box

 

          I’s really like this birthday thing sissy. Can we have another one next month?

 

 Close up of Raena checking out her birthday gifts from Chewy

Raena, birthdays only happen once a year. But the good news is that next month is mommy’s birthday, and she purrtends it’s ours so we get the birthday treatment all month again. 

 

 Raena sitting iat her box while giving an angry look

 

          Really sissy? We are so blest. I’s luvs Chewy too. Fanky fank you fur all mine’s birthday gifts. I’s luvs everythin’. And don’t worry, I’s sharin’ with sis Dezi.

 

 Dezi lays on the Liberty cat tree

 

You are, Raena. You’re learnin’ to be a good sisfur. And you’re right again, we are so very Blest. We also wanna say a meowsy big fank you to awnty Vonda fur sendin’ some green papers fur mommy to get us all a little somethin’ special fur today’s celebration. We wanna say fank you to all our furiends fur just bein’ you and sharin’ your lives with us. Each day is a blessing. And we wanna remind you all to take a moment today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives.

 

 Raena lays in mommy's lap

 

          And don’t furget, we’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur the Sunday Selfies. We hope you all have a blest Resurrection Sunday.

 

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

Chatting Cats: Smarty Pants and Basket Bunnies

Raena, what are you doin’?

 

 Raena looks up from her plate of food with a little bite stuck to her lip/

 

          Did you read all the comments on our Service Cat Monday posty sissy? Everybody thinks I’s so smart.

 

 Dezi watching Raena while they eat

 

Me read them, and you are smart. But, you shouldn’t let that give you the big head. ‘Member, mommy says it’s always better to be humble. Peeps don’t like a smarty pants.

 

          Just what does that mean, anyways? What’s a smarty pants. Cuz, I’s not wear any pants, lessen ya’ count mine’s bloomers. And while we’re at it, what’s this smarty pants fone? Ya’ know when we went to mommy’s doctors ‘pointment last week, mommy furgot to take the camera…as usual. And she was sayin’ how she needed one of those smarty pants fones so she’d always have a camera available.

 

Why? What did you do?

 

 Dezi and Raena eat breakfast next to each other

 

          I’s didn’t do anythin’ sissy, but there was this gigantor bunny rabbit outside the farmacy that mommy said she’d like to take our foto with. He was rockin’ and wavin’ in the wind, and I’s not so sure I’s would’a wanted to have mine’s foto taken with him. But, mommy says it would’a been sooooooooo cute.

 

 

Yeah Raena, mommy likes things like that. She thinks we’d look so adorable up next to those decorations.

 

          What kind’a decoration is a big ole bunny with a basket, sissy?

 

It signifies Easter, Raena. Me’s doesn’t actually unnerstand it all either, cuz mommy says Easter is all ‘bout the resurrection of Jesus. But it seems that some peeps celebrate by hidin’ funny colored eggs, and then carryin’ ‘round baskets and huntin’ fur those eggs. And me thinks they believe this bunny called Peter Cottontail lays ‘em. And of course as with any human holiday, there’s chocolates involved too.

 

 Photo of Peter Cottontail

 

          That don’t sound right sissy. Bunnies don’t lay eggs??. Do they??. I’s gonna ask mommy ‘bout all this, or maybe Speedy. He’s a bunny, surely he knows ’bout all this?.

 

 

Fine, don’t believe me. See ifin me answers any more of your questions.

 

          Oh sissy, I’s believe you. Don’t get hissy. (Raena mumbles under her breath)

You still haven’t told me what a smarty pants is, or a smarty pants fone fur that matter. (Raena turns to look at Dezi and excitedly meows

Hey, have you been workin’ on mine’s birthday pawrty?

 

Me has, Raena. But what ifin it was gonna be a surprise? You shouldn’t be askin’ ‘bout it.

 

 Dezi and Raena looking at each other over a few Yeowww toys

 

          But it’s not a surprise, right? Cuz we’ve all been talkin’ ‘bout it?.

 

 

No Raena, it’s not a surprise. What do you think ‘bout this fur your invitation?

 

 

Raena’s Party Invite

 

          That’s really cool sissy. Are we havin’ a circus?

 

Maybe Raena. Would you like a circus?

 

          I’s don’t know sissy, I’s never been to a circus befur. 

 

 Dezi and Raena laying on the Liberty cat tee

Well, our ‘pawrtment purrobably isn’t big enuff fur a circus Raena, but don’t worry, it’ll be lots of fun. Birthday’s are always fun here. Mommy always wants us to feel really special and extra luvved. Come on, let’s go finish brekky and take a nap. We’ve got an inspection today, and the exterminator’s here too. So mommy’s gonna have to get ready to mop. Those exterminators’ always make a huge mess by sprayin’ that poison in the middle of the floor and all up and down the walls. Mommy says their vision must be worse than hers. MOL  That’s why she likes to spray our ‘pawrtment herself. Besides, the stuffs they use is so watered down, it doesn’t really kill anythin’. 

 

          That Bengal stuffs mommy uses really works good. But it should; after all, it’s named after a cat. MOL  Do we have a play date fur tomorrow sissy? You know, mommy’s goin’ back to the dental surgeon fur her recheck, and again, she plans to leave both of us here.

 

 

 Dezi and Raena look outside from their perches near the door.

 

Yep, Raena, me’s invited some furiends over to play and keep you occupied while mommy’s gone. (Hearing the alert alarms of other apartments getting closer, and seeing the lawn crew’s truck drive up, Dezi heads down from her perch atop the Liberty tree and meows to Raena)

You better hurry Raena, it’s fixin’ to get really loud ‘round here.

 

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