Blest Sunday: Bittersweet Memories

Happy Mew Year!!!!!

Dezi in a 2017 calendar

Welcome to our very furst Blest Sunday of da Mew Year. Can you believe it? Another year has come and gone. Saying goodbye to 2016 was very bittersweet fur us. Last year brought us so much sadness and yet, so much joy. We all meowed and chatted ‘bout just what kind of posty we would make today. We’ve made some mew furiends this year and lost some old ones, so in da end we decided a look back was the way to go. Fasten your seatbelts and let’s zoom back to January of 2016. (This posty looks longer than it is, cuz we added lots of fotos fur your viewing purrleasure.)

Y This ain’t so bad after all.

What a fine time; sis Lexi was still with us. We don’t make resolutions in our house, so instead, me gave you all a challenge. With so many anipals awaitin’ their furevers, me challenged you to all share and do whatever you could to help more of those anipals than ever befur. We partnered with a shelter here in Oklahoma and shared adoptable kitties every week till the shelter was empty. That’s right, they actually went fur several weeks without any kitties needin’ furever homes. January wasn’t all work tho’. Mommy and me made mes furst pick up truck fur the annual Cat Scout Derby. Me didn’t win, but we did have a good time. Mommy fur sure isn’t crafty. MOL  And we never could have known when we wrote ‘bout our pets grief that we would be facing that ourselves very soon.

I luvz minez mommy even more today

In February, sis Lexi was havin’ more bad days than good, and we started getting all sentimental and mushy. We celebrated our 2nd blogoversay; and just in time fur Valentine’s Day, sis Lexi wrote a thank you post to mommy. Me wrote mes thank you a couple of days later. And we got all educational and wrote a post telling you all about spay/neuter and vaccinations.

 Lexi:Always and Furever

When March came blowing in, sis Lexi took a turn fur the worse. She couldn’t balance very well, and wouldn’t eat much. Ever the Service Cat tho’, she continued to do what she could to help mommy; giving her massages meowning and night. And on Wednesday March 9th, 2016, sis Lexi gave up the fight and went to heaven. Mommy was a mess; me was a mess, and we wrote another post on pets grieving. We ended the month explaining why mommy needs Service Cats.

Isn’t this just beautiful? Lexis’ furever resting spot that will sit on mommys desk.

April found us trying to figure out how to go on without sis Lexi. We began our search fur a new Service Cat to help me help mommy. Little did we know, that she hadn’t yet been born.

May came rushing in, and found us posting home made treat recipes. You can check out a couple of those treats here and here. And furinally on mommys’ birthday, May 27th, she got a lead on a new Service Cat in training. She had been born April 21, 2016. Sis Lexis’ birthday would have been the 29th.

 Baby Raena her first day riding home with mommy

So we waited with baited breath fur June to roll round. The day finally rolled around and mommy went to pick up mes new sisfur and helper. She was a little puff ball of pi_ _ and vinegar. A real spitfire, mommy called her. Of all the names mommy threw out, the little spitfire answered to Raena. Mommy had done a little research and thought that was purrfect. It’s a shortened form of Rahannan and means “New Beginnings”. We purrticipated in our furst Blogville Pawlympics, and turned Miserable Mondays into Service Cat Mondays. We plan to continue posting those Service Cat posts this year, so ifin you have any questions about Service cats or training cats, just let us know.

July came bounding in just like Raena. We continued our Service Cat Monday posts and Raena got to make her furst post all by herself. And she learned all about treats, catnip and giving reviews. She learned how to be a blogging cat.

 Raena peaking out of a chewy box

August sped in and saw Raena saying goodbye to monthly VET visits where she got poked and prodded. Raena continued to grow and explore her new home. We continued with Service Cat Monday and also wrote about kitties teething. We ended out the month with a day of remembrance written by mommy for sis Lexi.

September 2016: Raena and me both got our furst Silvervine sticks. OMC  Those things are outta this world. And we continued Service Cat Mondays, offering training tips for all kitties.

October was the month Raena had her “spa day”. We both got new harnesses and Raena learned to walk on a leash and go out in the stroller. We ended the month telling you about Shad, mommys’ furst Service Cat.

Me couldn’t wait fur November to get here, it’s mes Birthday and Gotchaday month. What a time. Me got some great purresents and we finally had pizza. Raena got her furst nip nanner fur mes birthday. We also posted leash training tips in a Service Cat Monday post. And we were so blest to have received boxes fur mommy that included cleaning supplies fur all kinds of cleanin’, food and turkeys fur our holiday dinners.

Finally, December blew in and so did Christmas. OMC  Were we ever blest!!! We got purresents, food and mommy food too. We received a couple more gifts over the weekend, that we still haven’t got fotos loaded fur. You know what else? All of you, our readers and furiends have been here fur us. We luv you all so very much!!!

We’ve shared lots of sorrows this year, and also lots of joy. Some of us lost beloved family members, both furred and non furred, and some of us got new family members. The one thing we all have is the luv we share. 2016 was a roller coaster ride fur sure, but we wouldn’t have made it thru without all of you. Thank you all fur being our furiends, and sharing your lives, luv and support with us. The year was full of so much more, we just couldn’t list it all. We are indeed, Blest. ‘Member to take a minute today and everyday to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. We’re joinin’ the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies, and we hope you enjoyed our little slideshow with more Christmas fun. We can’t wait to see what adventures we’ll all be up to this year.

Blest Sunday: A Note From Mommy

Hello everyone, mommy Audra here today. Can you believe Christmas is just a week away? For anyone who reads our blog regularly, you know that I don’t write posts often. I live for my girls, and they have so much to say. And when we started this journey into technology and social media, my “fears” of the all seeing intrusive internet, led me to speak through them. I quickly learned about Facebook pages and the girls’ personalities came to life. I knew we, especially Lexi, had a story to tell I just didn’t know if anyone was interested. Through the years I’d sent her story to cat publications, only to be disappointed by their lack of interest. Somehow, through the magic of the internet, we connected with people. Lexi touched peoples hearts, the way she had touched mine. When she introduced her sister Dezi to everyone, their story took on a life of its’ own. And out of that, DezizWorld was born. To keep this post from going on for days, I’m just hitting the highlights.

 Lexi lays in mommys lap and gets some loving

We garnered followers who quickly became friends. I remember the first person I ever spoke directly to in something other than the girls’ voice in a comment. We began to look forward to seeing and reading about our friends lives. And of course we always love seeing photos. Who could ever tire of seeing pictures of beautiful cats? And they’re all beautiful, aren’t they?.  

Lexi and Dezi lay on scratchers

I remember our first Christmas in social media. The kindness and generosity of those “strangers” now friends. Yet still, people we would probably never actually meet. I didn’t understand how people could be so loving?. For the first time in the girls’ lives, they actually had a Christmas with presents under the tree. And not the repurposed ones I’d dug out of the bottom of the toy box. They were so adorable. They almost didn’t know what to play with first. 

And then, Lexi got sick. Again, it was you, our friends who reached out. It was you, our friends who helped and you, our friends who were there for us, when she died. In some ways, this year has flown by; and in others, it has been the longest and hardest year of my life. For those of you who don’t know, for the last 25 years, I had lost a cat every 5 years. It felt like a curse. When Dezi turned 6, we celebrated like never before. I took a deep breath for the first time in years. It was always the younger cat that left me. I never even thought there’d come a day when Lexi would be the one to go. I really mean that. I know how unrealistic that sounds, but it’s just the way it was. Anyways, you were all there for Dezi and me, and for that, we can’t say thank you enough. I’m still trying to pick up the pieces.

 Dezi lays on shower bench

But life goes on. Soon Raena would join our family, and hopefully your hearts. You’ve all welcomed her, and for that I’m grateful. As some of you have noticed and emailed us about, Dezi’s personality has changed. When we started all this, we determined to always be truthful, good, bad or otherwise; and you can continue to expect the same. Dezi faced the same loss as me when Lexi died, and it did affect her personality. At least I can reason it all out, Dezi doesn’t truly understand everything that happened. With the addition of Raena and Dezi becoming the “big sister”, her personality has continued to shift. These are all things to be expected. I imagine she will continue to evolve as Raena continues to learn and grow. Dezi’s still that sweet beautiful kitty girl you’ve all come to know and love, she’s just trying to find her way in our new dynamics. Those of you who read our blog regularly will be here to see how it all plays out. We imagine our blog will continue to evolve as the girls’ personalities take shape.

 Raena sleepy selfie on mommys lap

We do hope you will continue to follow us in the coming years. I know today is Blest Sunday, and we’ve had a multitude of material blessings this week and want to say Thank you very much. But I wanted to take today to thank you all for the biggest blessing in our lives, You. Yes, it’s been a rough year for us, but we have been blest every day to be a part of this community. We pray for all of you daily. We share your joyful times and your sad times. Many of you have felt the pain of loss this year, and will be missing one or more of you family/furry family members this Christmas. I’m not here to offer you advice on how to cope as I’m still reeling myself. But I do want to remind you, to take a minute and give thanks; we are all Blest. As long as we’re all here for each other, we’re never alone.

We would also like to thank you all for your kind words and Christmas wishes and cards. Some of you may have already received our card, and some of you may have gotten it more than once. I apologize if you receive(d)  multiple emails from us, this old belles’ memory isn’t what it used to be. lol  The girls and I want to thank you all for everything. And we wish you all a very Merry and Blest Christmas.

Blest Sunday: Dezi and Raena’s Top 10 Purrfect Gifts Guide for 2016

Hey, are ya’ll there? Actually, are ya’ here? It’s RaenaBelle, and we’ve got a real treat for all of you today. We’re going to post the Purrfect Gift Guide for 2016. Yep, that’s right. Ifin you were here Furiday, you know that sis Dezi and me had different ideas ‘bout what to call our guide. Well, we meowed about it yesfurday and came up with what we think is the purrfect name for our guide. Now, we’re not saying the other guides, especially those posted by our furiends aren’t great; we’re just saying there are some peeps and anipals that can’t afford items on those guide lists. Like us. So, we put our heads together and came up with gifts we think everybody and furry would like. Okay, so maybe there are a couple things that some of our furry feral furiends might not appreciate, but there’ll for sure be some things on our list that even they will like. You might have noticed that for the most part, I’s been writin’ in human English. Well that’s because we want all our furiends and followers to be able to read our guide. Right sissy?

 Raena's selfie

       That’s right Raena. We have put together the purrfect gift guide for peeps and anipals alike and we want everyone to choose at least a few things from our list. We know the posty looks long, but it’s a lot of fotos. Purrlease stay till the end, because we have a real surprise for all of you. So Raena, are you ready with your first gift? 

I is sissy, sure enough. I’s want to start the list with a freebie but goodie.

Raena lap selfie

1. A Big, Gigantic hold on with both arms, hands and paws HUGGY. No air hugs allowed. Only the real thing. You can hold on as long as you want. The longer the better, right?. Left hugRight hug

I’s know, we have a few furiends who be a little on the feral side and won’t really like this one, but wait, there’ll be something for ya’ll too.

 Dezi puckering mouth and holding head up for a kiss

 Kissy kiss mommy?!!

 

 

2. Pucker up and KISS the one(s) you love. Send a kiss 

       Mommy kisses us all the time, and we love it. Again, No Air Kissing allowed. Well unless you’d get your face scratched off. In that case, we’re all for Blowing those anipals or peeps a kiss.

 Raena in lap

 Kiss me mommy!!!

 

 

Oh sissy, I’s do love a big mommy kiss. That’s a great gift for our guide. And, another freebie. That brings me to the third gift on our list. And, even our more feral furiends will like this one.  

3. Say I Love You from your heart.

Look into the eyes or face of your anipal or peep and tell them how much you love and appreciate them. Us kitties will probably respond with a loving slow blink, doggies with a body shaking tail wag and peeps might actually say it back to you. And by the way, this is another freebie. It won’t cost you a cent.

 

Raena lap selfie

 I’s luvs you too mommy.

 

 Dezi and mommy hugging

 Me luvs you too mommy.

 

 

       Oh Raena, that’s a great one. Me so loves it when mommy tells us she loves us. That goes well with mes next item on our gift guide.

4. Call, Email or Text your loved ones and let them know you’re thinking about them.

       Say it even ifin ya’ get their voicemail. Sometimes a message from a furiend, can really make your day. Of course you could also send a snail mail card, but most of the time, we don’t even have money for a stamp, so calling, emailing or texting works better for us. Some of you travel and leave your anipals behind. We know your voice, and find it comforting, so calling up and telling us you love us lets us feel close to you.

 Raena learning to dial the phone.

 Meowllo? I’s just called to say…

 

 

Oh sissy, at less than .50 cents or free that’s another great idea. I’s couldn’t imagine mommy leaving us behind, but I’s would sure love to hear her voice ifin she wasn’t with us. Mines next item is a biggy.

5. Clean Up. That’s right, help somebody by cleaning their house. Anipals, put your toys away in the toy box.

You know, there are housekeeping tasks that be really hard on mommy, and we’re having a lot of trouble finding a helper, so she would really appreciate somebody helping her out. And guess what? It’s another Freebie!!!

 dw-dezi-with-vacsm

 Let me help you mommy.

 

 

       That’s a good one Raena. Me has another pawsum idea for our list.

6. Volunteer. Pick a day/days and head over to your local animal shelter and help clean cages, socialize kitties, walk dogs, or better yet, foster and/or adopt.

 

Mommy A waking Raena after her spay surgery

Oooooooooooooh sis Dezi, that’s a pawtastic gift. Anytime you can give to those less fortunate is a true gift of love. They could even volunteer at a spay/neuter clinic like mommy. Peeps could also take photos and share anipals on social media to help them find their furever homes. 

       Yep Raena. And they could even go through their toy boxes and donate any unused or gently used toys, beds, blankys, scratchers, outgrown collars/harnesses or food to the anipals in the shelter. Another freebie that takes advantage of your time and things you have around your house already.

Speaking of volunteering and time, I’s have another great gift idea sissy.

7. Visit a hospital or nursing home.

 

Raena in stroller looking out the back

The holidays are really hard on a lot of peeps and anipals, and sometimes those in nursing homes get forgotten. Just a few minutes of your time can bring a smile to their faces and really make their days. Ifin any of you furries are calm in nature, the holidays is the one time of year when the rules get a little lax and even though you’re not a certified therapy anipal, you might still be able to visit. Purrlease check with the nursing home before you visit to find out the rules/policies. 

Dezi visiting while in the stroller

Visitin’ da pharnacy

       You’re right Raena, that is a good one. You and mommy will be heading to the nursing home before long. They’re going to love you. So far we’ve got a lot of great gifts in our line up. But maybe, you want something tangible to put under the tree, right? So here’s the next item for your gift giving pleasure.

 

 

8. Write it down and Wrap it up. Grab a post it, old bill envelope, old receipt, or any piece of scrap paper, and write a little note telling the recipient to redeem it for a HUG, KISS, or Whatever. Get Creative and then wrap it in whatever you can find.

       Gentlemen listen up, mommy says whatever you do, don’t wrap your note in a small ring box or “the blue box”. Ladies get too excited with expectation. Even the most loving woman can become a total stranger when she doesn’t find a/”that” ring inside. MOL  As for wrapping paper, mommy’s used old calendar pages (picture side of course), newspapers, brown paper grocery bags, old manilla envelopes, and that packing paper that comes in chewy boxes makes great wrapping paper. And a box in a box in a box can add fun to your hand written gift.

 Hug Note Kiss Note

That’s a great idea for peeps Dezi. I’s have one now for the furries.

9. Filled and Tied Old Sock. Filling: Newspaper, Packing Paper, Garden Grown fresh dried Catnip, Foil, Parchment Paper, Another Old Sock. Paper Items will make a fun crinkle toy, while Material Items will make a fun bite toy.

       Good one Raena. Peeps might even check their pets toy boxes for old balls, toys and squeakers that we don’t play with anymore and stuff them down inside that sock. The possibilities are endless. Just use your imagination. And mommy says every sock drawer has a mismatched sock left over from the washer eating it’s pair. Hmmmmm Me didn’t know we had to feed the washer too. No wonder we don’t have any green papers. MOL  Me has another item that’s a favorite for lots of kitties.

 Dezi and Raena laying on the Liberty Cat Tree

 Oh Dezi this guide thing is so much fun.

You’re right Raena. Me’s glad we did it.

 

 

10. MILK JUG RING.

Oh sissy, that’s the cool piece of plastic that locks the lid on the bottle of milk, juice, vitamins and jugs of water.

 

       Yep Raena, and they can be wrapped up and put under the tree or even hung on the tree for decoration.

 

 Raena biting light on Christmas tree

 Hmmm What’s this? This blonky doesn’t taste very good,

but it sure looks like fun.

 

 

Decorations? Speaking of trees sissy, I’s love our tree. The lights are so cool. They blink off and on, off and on. I’s loved them so much, I even tried to eat a few.

 

 

       Me knows. Mommy says ifin you can’t behave she’ll have to take the tree down. So purrlease sissy, leave the tree alone. Let’s just watch the pretty lights flash.

 

 

I’s’ll try sissy, I’s promise. Anyways, we hope ya’ll liked our Top Ten Gift ideas. We know you’ll find at least one thing for everybody/furry on your list. Now…

 

 

       Everybody come in real close. We wanna give you all our gifts to you.

(Dezi, Raena and mommy A gather together and grasp arms and pull each furiend and furry/furless furiend in for a Huge Hug and a Big Kiss. They then look into each friends eyes/face and…)

We Love you soooooooooooo much. We are soooooooooooo grateful to have you in our lives. We want to say Thank You for being You. You mean so much to us that we can’t truly express it in human words.

(Dezi and Raena each slow blink and purr to each furiend. While mommy A takes each by the hand and in true Southern Belle fashion, offers a curtsey in honor of their greatness and furiendship.)

 Dezi, Raena and mommy together giving everyone a hug and kiss

I’s been learning so much about Christmas, and all the things that go with it. You’ll have to stay tuned for our letters to Santa. They’ll be coming up later this week. In the meantime, we’re joining the Kitties Blue for Sunday Selfies. And…

Blest Sunday The Generosity of Friends

Well here we are, sayin’ good bye to Fanksgivin’ and meowllo to da beginnin’ of da end of da year and mes favorite holiday, Christmas. Me so luvs da blinkin, flashin’ lights on da tree, and da sittin’ in mommys lap as she tells us da story of baby Jesus and why He came to earth. Me luvs seein’ da goodness of humankind, dat fur some only shows itself at this time of year. Since ‘bein’ on da innernet, me learned ‘bout a Santa Paws and purresents. Sis Lexi and me were so blest to have received so many amazin’ gifts from such pawsum furiends, awnties and uncles. Me hopes sissy Raena will also be treated with such, but ifin not, we will still be blest.

 Dezi licks her lips

 Dat turkey was soooooooooo good.

 

 

Dat’s right, it’s Blest Sunday, our favorite posty of da week. As we end out one week and enter another, we do so with full bellies fur all. We had a pawsum Fanksgivin’. We ate so much turkey tom lurkey, we thought we all might burst. Mommy made roasted taters, mac and cheese and dinner rolls. She had bought a pie crust and a can of evaporated milk to make a pie, but furgot we didn’t have any eggs. Da last eggs we got were furesh and mommy gave them to Raena and me. There was only one left and she needed at least 6. So, no pie, but we had purrlenty. We’ve  had sammiches everyday since. Okay, maybe mommy’s had those sammiches, but Raena and me have had turkey too.

 Dezi and Raena laying on the Liberty cat tee

 Dat turkey lurkey was pawtastic sissy. I’s think we need a

little rest now, don’t you?

 

 

There’s a lady what lives out here dat rarely has anypawdy visit her. When mommy furst moved in here one of da wild bobcats used to furequent da ‘pawrtments lookin’ fur a hand out. Mommy was da furst purrson ever to live here with kitty cats. Anyways, this little old lady can’t see so good and used to tell mommy dat her kitties had gotten out and she had fed them or gave them milk. Well, it wasn’t mommys kitties she was feedin’ but da ole bobcat. Anyways, mommy saw dat she was home and nopawdy came to visit her, so we shared some of our turkey lurkey with her. Mommy took her over some of da sides too. Like us, she doesn’t make much money and can’t afford a holiday feast either, so she was very grateful fur da plate mommy took her. It has always bothered mommy dat when some peeps got old, their furmily kinda abandoned them and they really didn’t have anypawdy. Da truth is, dat mommy realized da other day, dat she’s now dat purrson. Peeps purrobably think dat ‘bout her now. But dat’s okay, mommy said she has us and all our wonderful furiends from ‘round da world.

 Dezi trying to nap on the Liberty cat tree

Mommy totally furgot to take fotos of our feast. Fank catness she ‘membered to take some of us in da aftermath. MOL  Ifin we thought tom smelled good when he arrived, let me tell ya’, he smelled even better when mommy warmed him up. Sis Raena sat right in front of da oven yowlin’ da whole time. Reckon it paid off, cuz guess who got da furst bite? Yep, Raena got her furst taste ever of a yummy turkey tom lurkey; and she luvved it.

 Raena's selfie

       Oh sissy, you were sooooooooooo right. Dat turkey lurkey tasted sooooooooooooooo good. I’s didn’t wanna stop eatin’. Mommys taters wasn’t bad either, but I’s glad we got more turkey than taters.

 Raena concked out atop the Liberty cat tree

 I’s ate so much I’s conked plumb out.

 

 

Me too Raena, me too. We can never say fank you enuff to our furiends, awnties and uncles who sent us a feast fit fur queens. Fur us, each day is Fanksgivin’. We are so fankful fur da luv, support and furiendship of all of you. Our hearts are offen overwhelmed by da kindness and generosity  of all of you. We are so blest and honored to be a pawrt of such an amazin’ community of animal luvvers. We can say dat most of our human furiends would give da shirt off their backs to help a kitty/anipal in need. And most like us, would share their last meal with one who didn’t have any. With all da turmoil in da world, it’s offen easy to furget da blessings right in front of us. There are angels in this world, and offen they’re covered in fur. Fank you all fur bein’ who you are.

Blest Sunday: The Blessings Just Don’t Stop

Raena, can you believe how blest we’ve been this month? It’s like da blessings just don’t stop.

 Dezi and Raena on cat tree

       Are you talkin’ ‘bout dat big box dat came this past week sissy?

 Dezi plays with nip nana

Yep Raena, and da green papers to help mommy out and fur her to get some groceries, and her coffee, and mes birthday purresent.

 

 

       Don’t furget your Gotchaday purresent sissy.

 

 

Me was getting’ to dat Raena. As most everypawdy knows, Fanksgiving is comin’ up quick. We don’t talk much ‘bout what groceries and foods mommy buys fur herself, cuz she really can’t afford very much, and often goes without. Mommy always says, so long as me and you have foods and litter and anythin’ else we need, then she’s happy. Mommy says she’s eaten more this month than she has all year. Anyways, as far as holiday meals go, it’s mostly like any other day ‘round here. Most of da time, mommy doesn’t have anythin’ to eat. She does try to buy us a special can of noms or treats, but dat’s ‘bout it. Mommy says it’s no big deal, she’s used to it, and just happy dat we are healthy and enjoy our special treat.

 Smoked turkey

So anyways, da mailman came walkin’ up to da door da other day with a big ole heavy box. Inside was da biggest mostest gawjus smoked turkey tom lurkey fur mommy and us to share. As ifin dat wasn’t enuff, we got an email and awnty Vonda and her amazin’ 17 kitty cats sent us some green papers with instructions to get me a Gotchaday gift and buy some fixin’s fur our Fanksgivin’ dinner. Well you know mommy was a blubberin’ mess. They were happy tears, but me thought she might not ever stop. Mommy was cryin’ so hard she even had to wait a day to send our pawsum furiends, awnties and uncles a fank you email cuz she couldn’t see da catputer. And me’s been bustin’ at da seams waitin’ fur Blest Sunday to tell everypawdy and say a meowsy big, no Huge, Fank You. Raena’s furst Fanksgivin’ is gonna be complete with a real live, dead turkey tom lurkey.

 Raena laying in lap up close

       I’s know you ‘splained what this Fanksgivin’ thing is sissy, but I’s can’t wait fur it to actually get here. I’s can’t wait to sink mines teefies into dat turkey tom lurkey. ‘Specially since you said turkey tom lurkey is even better than chicken, includin’ our favorite freeze dried chicken breast treats. I’s wanna add mines meowsy huge Fanky Fanks to yours and mommys.

 Dezi lays in lap and gets loving

Well Raena, ya’ won’t have to wait much longer. Mommy went to da grocery store last night and got some taters and dinner rolls, and pie fixins’. We’re gonna have a feast. But ya’ know what? even ifin all this hadn’t happened, we still woulda been blest and had a pawsum Fanksgivin’. Ya’ know why Raena?

 

 

       Cuz we have a safe warm furever home with a mommy who luvs us more than anythin’. And cuz, we have da bestest furiends in da universe. Right sissy?

 Dezi and Raena in a heart shaped Happy Thanksgiving frame

Dat’s right Raena. We’re blest each and every day. We have da mostest amazin’ furiends ever. We’re all blest. We have furever homes full of luv. But latlely, me’s really been thinkin’ ‘bout all those kitties livin’ outside. Da weather’s been turnin’ colder and even some of our birdies are flyin’ a little further South. We have some amazing furiends who take care of da feral and stray kitties in their area all year ‘round. And we can’t fank ya’ll enuff. We know those kitties are grateful fur ya’ even ifin they run away when you get too close. But fur every kitty dat has a care taker, there are lots of kitties who don’t. So we encourage everypawdy to look around and ifin ya’ spot a kitty who looks homeless, put out some noms. Maybe build them a shelter so they can get outta da weather. Check with da shelters and rescues in your area to see ifin there’s someone who can help or a TNR purrogram in your area.

 

 

       Dat Alley Cat Allies website has a wealth of infurmation fur peeps.

 

 

Dat’s right Raena. Everypawdy can help, even ifin ya’ don’t have green papers. Shelters and rescues are always in need of volunteers, and you might even have some things ‘round your house you could donate. As we all get wrapped up in celebratin’ da holidays, let’s not furget those who don’t have da blessings we do. And take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur da blessings in your life. We thank you all fur being blessings in our lives and we send purrayers fur your health and happiness today and every day.
