Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s hope ya’ll had a good week. We had such pawsum weather, you’d’a thought it was Spring time. We’ve really enjoyed these warmer days, but mommy says it means she’s gonna need to get some Bengal outdoor foggers cuz it hasn’t been cold enuff to kill anythin’. Welllllll, mommy’s no killer, so I’s had to ask what she meant. She says we have creepy crawlers, like spiders, scorpions, fleas, ticks and all manner of pests that have multiplied 10 times over this year.
Me can tell ya’, you don’t want any fleas Raena. Me had those when me was little and almost died.
Oh sissy, they sound pawful.
They are. And at the time, me was too young fur flea purroducts and the fleas had given me those nasty tape worms too. Of course me was too young fur tape worm medicine too. Fankfully mommy knew what to do and got rid of both those nasties and saved me. And, every year she tries to treat right outside our ‘pawrtment. But this year we’re gonna be needin’ a couple of them Bengal outdoor fogger cans. Mommy swears by the stuffs and says it has a money back guarantee. By the way, we ain’t getting’ paid or nuffin’ free fur sayin’ this. We just know some of ya’ have purroblems with fleas and such, and thought we’d tell ya’ how we treat fur ‘em.
It’s good ya’ said that sissy, wouldn’t want anypawdy thinkin’ we’s gettin’ paid fur somethin’ we’re not. MOL We also included the link to their site in case any of ya’ wanna check it out. You can buy most of it at your local feed store or hardware stores.
Anyways, there’s this cool blog hop called Shoppin’ ‘Round the World that pawrently sissy used to purrticipate in. Seems they quit cuz mommy wasn’t goin’ to the grocery stores and didn’t get the ads, so they didn’t know the purrices of stuffs anymore. We really wanted to purrticipate with Sammy and Teddy, so we looked online. But none of our stores have web sites, or ifin they do, they don’t list purrices. Somepawdy mentioned Wally World, but since we don’t have any delivery services, they just say “see your local store fur current purrices”. Altho’ mommy got dumped off at Wally World last week, checkin’ purrices was the last thing on her mind. She totally furgot ‘bout the blog hop. We did get a Family Dollar ad this week, but the only groceries they had on sale was a box of crackers and a can of soup. Nopawdy here eats soup, so we’ll be skippin’ the blog hop. Altho’, we are curious to see the purrices in your areas.
Yep, the only things mommy buys on a regular are our noms, supplements and litter. We can fur sure tell ya’ what they cost. MOL Mommy says we’re her most ‘spensive bill every month.
That’s true sissy. But she also says she wouldn’t have it any other way.
You sure are all over the place today Raena.
Well sissy, I’s havin’ one of those kind’a days. I’s been in to anythin’ and everythin’ I’s could…And all befur brekky. MOL
Yeah me knows. Mommy finally told ya’ the more messes you made that she had to clean up, the longer it was gonna be befur we got brekky.
Yeah she did. Who knew? I’s settled down real quick when she said that. She already moves in slow motion. I’s sure didn’t wanna slow her down any more.
Raena…Don’t make fun of mommy.
I’s wasn’t makin’ fun sissy. I’s was just meowin’ it like it is.
Well, ya’ don’t meow everythin’ that pops in your head. Just like ya’ don’t jump on me just cuz me walks by.
But it’s so much fun sissy. Besides, more offen than not, I’s jump over you and not actually on you.
On, over, semantics. Either way, ya’ shouldn’t do it.
The creepy solar bobble Santa was our Christmas gift
from da pawrtment’s management.
I’s’ll think ‘bout it sissy. On another note, the Aerogarden’s doin’ great. Mommy’s getting’ really excited. Looks like it might be another week befur she can harvest enuff fur a salad, but she did pull a leaf off last night and give it a try. She says it was nice and crunchy and tasted delishus. She was so delighted, sissy thought she might try a bite too. Mommy wasn’t very happy ‘bout that. She told us to leave her lettuce alone. Hmmmmpht Guess it’s back to the grass fur me.
Befur you confuse everypawdy even more and run off on another subject Raena, let’s wrap this up. We’re linkin’ up with Rascal, Rocco and their pawsum co-hosts fur the weekly Pet Parade Bloghop.
Fanky Fanks sissy. We hope you all have a furtastic weekend.
Do you have any plans for the weekend?
Have you had unseasonably warm weather this winter?
Do/Have you have/had a flea or tick problem? If so, how do you treat it?
Till the next time……………………………………..Be Blest!!!

Meowllo everypawdy and welcome to another Blest Sunday. Even tho’ we’ve been takin’ a few days off we didn’t wanna miss our Blest Sunday posty. Mommy says she’s gotten a lot accomplished and things should start to settle down fur us soon. Me will be so glad to get all this lease stuffs behind us, so we can go fur lots of leisurely strolls. You’ve purrobably noticed da new header and background fotos, and ifin ya’ follow our other social media sites, we’ve been updatin’ them as well. While we may not be ready to move sis Lexi to da side bar only, Raena is here to stay, and it’s only right dat she takes her place alongside me.
Anyways, this has been a pawsum week. Raena and me played our furst game of patty cake. Me patted too hard da furst time and Raena went flyin’ but she came right back and me learned to be more gentle with me’s pats. Of course we didn’t have any memory fur da camera’s so mommy didn’t get any fotos. But, fanks to uncle Mike, fellow cat scout Pete Hartley and furmily, awnty Susan Mullen, and an anonymous sender via amazon we have memory so both camera’s are charged and ready fur da next furst ‘tween Raena and me. And mommy keeps watchin’ fur another round of patty cake. She says it was adorable. Me doesn’t know what’s so excitin’ ‘bout us playin’, but mommy’s get x’cited over just about anythin’. Anyways, Fank ya’ll so much. Mommy does luv takin’ fotos of us and she really was sad dat she might miss some of Raena’s kittenhood.
Mommy, make Raena quit pullin’ me’s tail.
Speakin’ of Raena’s kittenhood, me told ya’ dat she had to go to da VET on Furiday fur her furst round of kitten vaccs and a recheck of her eye and nose; well all went well. Sort of. Dr. C went to give her da shot, and stead of pokin’ Raena, it spit out all over her furs. Yep, she’s so fluffy he missed her skin altogether and vaccinated her furs. Raena showed her disapproval by turnin’ and spittin’ at him. Me was purroud of her, but mommy told her dat wasn’t nice and dat she needed to behave ifin she wanted some of those yummy treats. Well a few minutes later da tech re-entered with a new syringe of medicines and Dr. C went in fur a second try. He got her dat time and she wasn’t da least bit happy ‘bout it. She’s on a L-Lysine supplement fur 10 days to hopefully clear up her eye and nose run. We would purreciate any purrayers you could spare as well. Anyways soon enuff they were all done and we were off.
(This was sis Lexi one week befur she left fur heaven. This past week Raena and me both have been playin’ with da same nip pouch, so we thought we’d show ya’ll a good nip toy never gets old.)
Mommy had picked up this bag of treats da last time we was at da VET fur me’s rabies shot and Raena luvved ‘em. So mommy had purromissed dat she would get another bag fur Raena after da VET visit. So off to Walmart we went to get treats. What are they you ask? Well they must be new cuz we hadn’t seen ‘em befur. But they’re called Delectables Juicy Treat. They come in several flavors and cost .50 cents a bag. There’s about 6 little chunks of moist meat purr package. Da meat and vitamin E supplement are da only ingredients, so mommy knows it’s good fur us. Me doesn’t care fur them much but Raena luvs them. So mommy gets me da freeze dried chicken breasts and Raena gets these.
Well we finally headed fur home. And fank catness too, cuz it was hot enuff to fry an egg on da sidewalk out there. When we got to our door we noticed a Chewy box waitin’ fur us. We hadn’t ordered anythin’ so we had no clue what it could be. After getting’ us inside and settled mommy opened da box to find it full of summer goodies fur her. Chewy had done sent mommy a thank you box. Me doesn’t know why mommy needs a fank you, after all us kitties do all da work and try all da foods and treats and toys and do all da posin’ fur fotos and…well, anyways, mommy sure did purreciate her Chewy box, and all kitten aside, me really purreciates Chewy fur thinkin’ ‘bout mommy too. She does a lot of work
puttin’ together helpin’ with our review postys.
Well after all dat excitement and overwhelmin’ heat, we all crahsed and slept like logs. Raena was back to her spastic and annoying self bright and early Caturday meownin’. So this past week was full of blessings. As always, we count all of you among da biggest of our blessings. Fank you all fur bein’ our furiends. We’re sendin’ big hugs and purrayers to and fur all of you. Don’t furget to take a moment today and everyday to give thanks fur da blessings in your life.
Purrlease let us know what ya’ think ’bout our new background.
Is it too busy or just right?
Till da next time……………………………………….Be Blest!!!

Da weekend is finally here and Thanksgiving’s just round da corner. You know what else is comin’ up? Meez 6th Gotchaday, dat’s what. Yep dat’s right. Mommy rescued me and saved meez life 6 years ago. Yep, meez littermates and me was rescued and taken to a big ole cold room with lots of cages and loud noises. And then…da sweetest smell me had ever smelled wafted thru da air. Meez littermates and me was all gathered up in a basket and dumped out onto da cold hard floor. Me kuld see a bright light in da direction of da sweet smell so me had to go and check it out. Meez littermates was all huddled together and wouldn’t hardly move. But not me. Me waddled over and climbed da hills what was mommys legs and turned on meez purr motor. She wasn’t leavin’ there without me no matter what kind of charm this little girly had to do.
Mommy looked down at me and smiled. Her eyes filled with salty water and she spoke da most beautiful words me had ever heard, “You’re my Destiny.” Me didn’t know zactly what dat meant, but da smile on her face and warm comfurt in her voice sed it was a good thing. Me purred even louder when she spoke. And then she picked me up and sed, “Wanna come home with me little one?” Me purred so hard meez whole body shook. Of course me wanted to go home with her. Why did she think me was doin’ all of this ifin not to make her fall fur me? It worked and she told da lady she wuld take me home to live with her and Lexi. Me didn’t know how blest me was gunna be. But me has a pawsum home with a wonderful sissy and a mommy who wuld do anything fur me.
We recently won a book ‘bout Simon’s Cat from Cat Chat Cody and his mommy; dat mommy has been readn’ to us. What fun. None of us were furmiliar with this Simon or his cat, so weez really enjoyin’ da antics and drawings in this pawsum book. We don’t really do book reivews, but we will say dat ifin you need a Christmas purresent fur da cat luvver who has everything, Simon’s Cat: Off to the vet wuld make a gweat guft.
So with Thanksgiving right around da corner we wanna remind you ‘bout a few safety tips to help make da holiday fun fur you and da furry members of your household. Remember we don’t all purreciate parties, company or even wild decorations. And sum of us don’t know to stay away from da flames on candles. And those cute and sumtimes really purretty oil burners? Well MOST essential oils are poisonous to your fur kids; and your human ones too ifin ingested. Dat dusn’t mean you can’t use these things just dat they need to be supervised and/or out of reach of all da wee peeps and 4 leggeds in da house. And dat fancy feast yous cookin’ up fur da festivities might smell delicious and have us scopin’ out da kitchen, but most of it is toxic to us furries.
By now most peeps know chocolate shuld not be on da menu fur your cat, dog or other furry, and alcohol is an absolute no no. Onions, garlic and chives can cause liver and kidney purroblems specially fur kitties. See it’s not da turkey we can’t have, it’s all da stuff you put on it to titillate your taste buds dat makes it toxic fur us.
Mommy sez a good rule of thumb is: Ifin your cat kuldn’t ketch it in da wild, it purrobly shuldn’t go on da plate.
So, plain ole turkey tom lurkey? Give me sum!!! But roasted and stuffed and slathered in garlic butter turkey tom? Nope, can’t have it. Fur a list of human foods dat shuldn’t be served to us fur kids you can check out da ASPCA here.
But food and smellies awen’t da only hazards at this time of year. Those purretty poinsettias on da table or window sill awe purrlenty poison as well. Mommy sez ifin it has or grows from a bulb, it shuld be considered poisonous. But there awe so many plants and flowers dat be poisonous we kuldn’t begin to cover them all in this post. So when in doubt, check it out here. Ifin you think your fur kid has gotten into sumfin they shuldn’t have or has been poisoned you can call da ASPCA animal poison control center at: 888-426-4435. They do require a credit card so they can charge $65.00. There is also da Pet Poison Helpline at: 855-764-7661. They charge $49.00. Both awe available 24/7/365. But ifin you think your anipal has been poisoned, don’t wait. See your VET ASAP. Sum poisons can be reversed ifin caught in time.
Hope weez helped ya’ a bit. Wiff just a few purrcautions everypawdy can enjoy da holidays togevver. We’ll be covering a few more tips next week so stay tuned. As we do every week, weez joinin’ Rascal and Rocco fur da Pet Parade.
Till da next time…………………………………….Be Blest!!!

Well Meowllo day of labor. MOL Yous know sis Lexi has had sum weally bad days here lately where she “kuldn’t” eat. She was innewested and hungwy but she just didn’t seem to be able to eat. When we finally figgered out what was wrong and got da acids unnew contwol we was all a happy bunch here. She was finally eatin’ again. Gwanted she wasn’t eatin’ as well as she had been but mommy and me was just happy to see hers eat anyfin’. She was lookin’ like a bag of bones and had mommy cwyin’ all da time.
Well as you know weez pawrt of da Chewy.com blogger purrogwam and very gwateful fur dat; so when we got da list of choices this mumff we tentatively aksed fur da Catswell Nutrisca Grain Free Chicken Entre`e in Savory Broth. It comes in 10 different flavors and costs less than $22.00 fur a case of 2.7 oz. cans. Me eats purretty well so mommy dusn’t worry so much ‘bout me but when sissy be eatin’ we don’t like to upset da kitty by changin’ fings up. But at da time sissy was eatin’ nuffin’ but tuna and you know how much mommy hates fur us to eat tuna, so she was weally hopin’ Lexi wuld not only like this new food but dat it wuld kick stawrt sissy into eatin’ udder purroteins again. Dat’s a purretty big burden to put on a little ole can of noms, but we was purrayin’ and believin’ it wuld work out.
Da day came when our chewy box awwived. Me was ‘cited cuz we had a new box. We had wecently had an inspection and so mommy had to fwo out all our boxes. (‘cordin’ to da management, boxes be a fire hazard.) Anyways, mommy opened da box and pulled out da case of Catswell Nutrisca noms. Me had a good sniff and went off to play in da box while mommy had a mini foto shoot wiff da cans. Dinner time was still a ways off so mommy went online to see what she kuld find out ‘bout this new cat food and da company dat makes it. Turns out da pawent company called Dogswell is fairly new. They was founded in 2004 when they developed their furst purroduct, a dog tweat wiff glucosamine and chondroitin. Now they make food and tweats fur boff cats and dogs; da newest bein’ da Nutrisca Grain Free canned noms.
Dinner time finally awwived and mommy gwabbed a can of these new noms and pulled da tab. Sis Lexi immediately stawrted meowin’ fwum her place at da table and me chimed in while rubbin’ mommys legs. As mommy duz wiff all our weview items she pulled out da flashy box and stawrted wiff da foto shoot. You know me dusn’t know why she has to do this when we be hungwy and waitin’ on her to fix our plates. Finally on da plate, mommy had divided da can ‘tween us; she set our noms in fwunt of us. Mmmmmmmm nom, nom, nom. This is good mommy, me meowed fwum meez plate. So me gives it 4 paws up. What ‘bout sissy you ask? Well let me tell ya’.
Sissy didn’t bovver to look up or tell us whevver she liked it or not. She kept hers head down and just kept eatin’. When she finally finished hers half of da can, she looked up and meowed fur more. WooHoo!!!!! (Dezi jumps down briefly and does the happy dance) Dat wuld mean 4 paws up fwum sissy too. She licked da plate clean and asked fur seconds. We kuldn’t have asked fur more. So what did mommy fink ‘bout it? She’s fwilled sis Lexi liked it so well and continues to like it days later. She was also weally happy dat it looks just like chicken bits and shreds. Da furst 2 ingwedients be chicken bwoth and chicken, and you can fur sure tell by lookin’ at it. Anudder fing mommy likes is da lack of carrageenan in it. Mommy was a little disappointed dat there not be much infurmation ‘bout it and she kuldn’t find da DMA (dry matter analysis) anywhere. Since sis Lexi has CKD it’s weally purrtant dat mommy knows da DMA of any noms sissy eats. So mommy called da company and spoke to a weally nice lady dat sed da noms be so new they don’t yet have all da nummers available, but dat she wuld get back wiff us as soon as pawssible. So 2 fumms up fwum mommy too. Even tho’ she dusn’t know da nummers, their customer service was pawsum and easy to deal wiff. Dat means a lot these days. We know yous know what we mean.
Chewy adds new items all da ttime, so ifin yous not checked ‘em out lately, you might wanna head on over and take a look see, just click here. You can get all yous favowits and even have them ship automatically so yous never run out. You can cancel or change yous delivery anytime, and shippin’ be very weasonable..
