Dezi:  No Raena, me’s not callin’ our ‘pawrtment the Three Belles Ranch. Now c’mon, we’ve got lots of furiends that hopped on the Blessing  Train this week. Our train is growin’.  

 

The Blessing Train

 

 

Blessing Train with FriendsThere’s still purrlenty of track left fur you.

 

 

 

          I’s know sissy. It just warms mine’s heart to see everypawdy join in. Our dear furiends from Meezers Mews and Terrieristical Woofs, Pipo and Dalton, joined us. Ya’ know, their house was recently broken into and some horrible peep(s) stole their things. In spite of it all, they’re so Blest that nopawdy was hurt. We don’t know how they do it, but they never miss a birthday or gotchaday in the blogosphere. We are so Blest to call ya’ll furiends. Fanky fanks fur joinin’ us. And, we’re keepin’ ya’ll in our purrayers. Now their computer was stolen, so we helped them make their boxcar. Rest assured that had awnty Ingrid, aka  Petcretary made it, it would be much more elaborately decorated.

They’re just the bestest Raena. Next up is our amazin’ Scottish furiends from Spike The Scottish Black Cat, Spike and awnty Christine. They are just the sweetest furiends with hearts of gold. Black Cats rock, and Spike is proof of how pawsum they can be. We look forward to many more years of furiendship with ya’ll. True furiends are to be cherished, and we feel so  Blest to call ya’ll furiends. Fanks fur hoppin’ on.

          Oh sissy, I’s just luvs them. Next to hop on board is a dear furiend we met thru our articles at the Daily Mews, awnty Vonda. She has 15 kitties and counting that she cares fur. She’s not a blogger, but has 2 angel kitties on the old Catster, Sassy and Pepper. She sent green papers that helped mommy rescue me from that horrible cage in that stinky place I’s was born into. You’d be hard pressed to find a truer furiend. She’s always there with a kind word or purrayer. We’re so Blest to call you furiend. Fanky fanks fur hoppin’ on.

She’s been so pawsum to all of us Raena. Our bestest Persian pal Valentine, from Noir Kitty Mews added another boxcar full of Blessings this week. He meowed ‘bout his family and how Blest he was to have his. And he’s so right, family is a furtastic Blessing. We count Val and his family as pawrt of ours too. Unner all that fur you’d find kindness a heart full of luv to share with all he meets. We’re so Blest to call ya’ll furiends. Fanks fur joinin’ us fur this amazin’ ride.

Up next is awnty Sandee from Comedy Plus. She says she doesn’t currently have any kitties or woofies. We meow, that’s okay. The Blessing Train is open to all who want to join. We link up with her each week fur Feline Fridays and offen find awnty Sandee links us up fur Aaaaaaaw Mondays. She’s kind and luvvin’ and we’re so Blest to call you furiend. Fanks fur joinin’ us.

          They are all such a Blessing sissy. Last but certainly not least this week is awnty Ellen and the kitties of 15 and Meowing. Now some of ya’ already know this, but fur those who don’t, awnty Ellen is mine’s God awnty. You know, kind’a like a God mother. See, back when mommy saved me and befur she and sissy told the world, they told awnty Ellen. Awnty Ellen made me mine’s furst ever toys and nip mat to welcome me into the world. But it’s not just me, awnty Ellen does so many pawsum things fur all in the blogosphere. Any kitty who’s ever tried her Made With Luvs toys and/or mats know just how talented and generous she is. And, how much luvs she puts out. We’re so Blest to call you furiends. Fanky fanks joinin’ us. And, don’t furget, there’s still time to get Prancie’s Prayer fur the young’un’s in your life.

Blest Sunday: The Blessing Train Is Coming

MeOW  C’mon RaenaBelle, it’s Blest Sunday. Time to count our Blessings. And, since it’s also December, me thought it would be pawsum to bring back the Blessing Train fur our countdown to Christmas. Our sweet furiend Valentine said he would join us. Last year we counted down 12 days of Christmas; but there’s so much goin’ on ‘round the blogospere and the real world so me thought this year we would just run the train on Sundays. And…

          Oh sissy, this is gonna be so much fun. 

 

Yep Raena, me luvs it when our furiends get together to celebrate. Meowin’ of celebrations, we oughtta celebrate the fact that mommy’s feelin’ better. She even helped me with me’s audition tape fur the cat scouts choir. It’s a wonder we got anythin’ done what with you all up in her face and stuffs. 

 

          I’s just wanted to be in the recordin’ too sissy. Ya’ll looked so funny with your headfones on singin’ along to nuffin’. Least it sounded like nuffin’ from where I’s sat. I’s finally got close enuff to the headfones to hear the music.  It was kind’a like one of those recordin’ studios I’s see on tv, x’cept it was right here on the ranch (our apartment).

When was that Raena? When you head butted the microphone or bit mommy’s nose? Anyways, in spite of all the furry inneruptions, we got me’s audition finished. We even had enuff time to check out some tracks fur mommy to record. Last time, we got some requests fur mommy to sing some country songs. Long ago in another life, mommy sang with several different bands. Things have changed a lot since then. But, we’ve picked out a few songs that we think everypawdy will like and we’re even addin’ a fun Christmas song. We’ll be postin’ those fur ya’ soon. 

 

          Does that mean more singin’ with the funny headfones sissy? 

 

Dezi lays on cat tree

 

 

 

Me isn’t sure how mommy’s gonna do it yet Raena, but whatever she does, it’s bound to fun. Me will say, mommy’s old country, but ifin ya’ have any requests, she’ll try to sing ‘em; just let us know in the comments below. 

 

          Mommy can sing anythin’, sissy. I’s luvs it when she sings to us. It makes me feel all warm and purry inside.  

 

Me too Raena. Well, me thinks we oughtta get the Blessing Train fired up. We also wanna fank awnty Susan fur her gifty. And me wants to fank all of you who sent green papers fur me’s Birthday/Gotchaday. Mommy says me’s gift should be here tomorrow. Me can’t hardly wait.

Red Box CarHere’s a box car fur you to take and decorate any way you wish to add to

Yep Raena, furiends are one of the greatest gifts one can have. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you to take a minute today and every day to Give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives and Thank you fur bein’ Blessings in ours.

Chatting Cats: A Gooey Lounge Play Date

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. You’re never gonna guess who came over fur a play date. Look’it, It’s the beautiful ginger Annie and her handsum smart eared brofur Pierrot from the Gooey Lounge. We’re so glad ya’ll could paw over fur a play date.

 

Dezi, Annie, and Pierrot lay on the floor

          Dezi: We sure are. Kittens!!! Raena never stops. Me hears you like to romp and play too, Pierrot.

 

     Pierrot: I sure do. I love to play and run. (Raena and Pierrot start zooming down the hall, leaving Dezi and Annie sitting in the chair

 

          Dezi: (Shakes head) Young’un’s!!! Well, maybe those two will tire each other out. Me’s glad we’ve got a few minutes to ourselves. We just luv ya’ll, even tho’ we haven’t known ya’ that long. Me knows we have lots of furiends that’s never even met ya’, so why don’t you tell us a little ‘bout ya’ll. 

 

 Dezi lays on arm of chair while Annie lays in chair

 

 

 

     Annie: Thanks Dezi, and thanks for inviting us over. I’m an 11 year old orange tabby and I came to live with the lady and big guy, that’s what we call our mom and dad; 6 years ago. My previous owners were moving and going to put me in a shelter back in California. I was so very scared at first. It broke the lady’s heart to see how terrified I was.

 

          Dezi: Mommy’s…they luv us so much don’t they?

 

     Annie: At first I wasn’t so sure. But with a lot of changes, I’m very happy and comfortable in my home now. I love the lady and big guy so much. You know, they saved my life, I just know it.

 

Annie and Pierrot enjoy a sun puddle lounging on a sunday

 

 

 

          Dezi: Girl, we are two of the blestest kitties ever. We’ve got the bestest pawrents in the universe. Give me the low down on Pierrot. We just luv his little ears. We think they give him so much purrsonality. 

 

     Annie: He’s got personality to spare then. Pierrot’s 5 years old and 3 years ago the lady and big guy just thought they had to have him. They adopted him from Save the Cats, a local animal rescue that fosters homeless kitties. Really, he’s not that bad. And, a year earlier the big guy had lost his beloved Simba and really needed a new friend. I guess it’s really nice that they saved Pierrot. I’m used to him now. I’m sure you know all about that. MOL

 

 Dezi profile as she lays in mommy's lap getting love

 

 

 

          Dezi: Me sure does. At least we have humans with purrlenty of luv to share. How did ya’ll start bloggin’?

 

     Annie: Pierrot and I actually inherited the blog. The lady started blogging back in 2009 for her then kitty Lucy. Of course Simba made a few guest appearances, and then came me and finally Pierrot. The lady had wanted to meet some kitties and people who love cats to share stories and photos with. 

 

Raena: (Raena and Pierrot run through and zoom up the Liberty cat tree) Hey, ya’ll come over here with us. We purromiss not to whacky paw anykitty. 

 

 Dezi, Raena, Annie and Pierrot lay on the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

     Annie: I don’t think I can climb up there, my first people had my claws removed. And sometimes my short back legs don’t work just right. 

 

 

Raena: No worries gawjus. Just give mommy “the look”, she’ll help ya’ up and down all day long. She’s the bestest. (Mommy A helps Annie on the tree and gives them all some treats Annie and Pierrot had brought with them) Fanky fanks fur the treats ya’ll, they’re yummy. What kinds of things do ya’ll like to do at home?

 

 

 Dezi, Raena, Annie and Pierrot lay on the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

     Annie: I love cozy blankets and sun puddles. We both do really. One of my favorite things is spending the evenings with the lady while she reads or watches teevee. She gives me belly rubs and chin scritches and I just purr and purr. I also love grass with a passion. Sometimes the lady grows me a fresh pot. The lady works from home and sometimes takes short breaks just to spend time with me. I guess you girls are right, we really are the most blest kitties ever. I also like to play with catnip toys. Of course, not too many cats don’t right? 

 

     Pierrot: I Love catnip toys too, Annie. And balls and mousies, and well just about everything.

 

Raena: Me too Pierrot, me too. 

 

 Raena and Annie lay on the Liberty Cat tree

 

 

 

     Annie: Well, we better get back home if I’m going to spend the evening with the lady. We sure do appreciate your kind hospitality and friendship.

 

          Dezi: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaw Fanks. We luv ya’ll too. We’re really glad to be your furiends. Give the lady and the big guy some purrs from us and come back anytime. 

 

The Blessing Train

Raena: Sissy, we have the bestest furiends in the universe. Ya’ know what else we need to do today? We need to pick our Blessin’ fur the Blessing Train. Hearin’ ‘bout Annie and Pierrot’s adoptions and thinkin’ ‘bout our own, I’s say today’s Blessin’ is Luvvin’ Furever Homes. ‘Member, you too can hop on the Blessin’ Train fur our 12 Days of Blessings. Just send us a pingback to your posty and/or post your linky in the comments. And don’t furget to check out the Gooey Lounge.
