Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s gotta tell ya’, looks like Spring furinally showed up. Bird teevee has been all a’flutter. MOL Altho’ mommy said based on the weather guessers estimates, she only brought an overnight bag. Guess she won’t be stayin’ long. I’s sure hope Summer packs more days than Old Man Winter. I’s just don’t like him and all that cold and nasty he brings with him. Don’t you agree sissy?
Hisssssssssss GRrrrrrrrrr (Dezi runs down the hall toward the bedroom and stops at the door to hiss again.)
Wait, sissy, where…(Suddenly there’s a knock on the door and Raena runs toward the hall and stops behind mommy A’s sitting chair while mommy goes to answer the door. Mommy A and the manager exchange some words and seem to make a plan fur something in June. Mommy A returns to her sitting chair and Raena runs over and jumps in her lap.) What was that all ‘bout mommy? Sissy, you can come back now, it’s just mommy and me again. So…What’s up mommy?
Didn’t you pay attention Raena? They’ve been plannin’ a community garage sale. They were s’posed to have it this weekend, but ‘pawrently that doesn’t work fur some of the residents, so now they’re gonna have it in June.
A garage sale? What’s a garage sale, sissy? Do we even have a garage to sell?
(Dezi shakes her head) No Raena, we don’t have a garage, mommy should’a said a yard sale. But, either way, we’re not sellin’ the yard or a garage. Ya’ know humans, or at least some of them get all cleany like come Spring. They call it Spring Cleaning. Mommy plans to clean out some of the stuffs she doesn’t need or want anymore and put it out fur other peeps to come and buy. Ya’ know, one purrson’s trash is another purrson’s treasure.
Uh, She ain’t sellin’ us is she?
What would even make you ask that question, silly? We’re not trash fur sure, but more ‘purrtantly, mommy luvs and needs us. There’s no way mommy would ever sell us. We’re mommy’s Treasures. Me wishes every kitty knew what it was like to be somepawdy’s Treasure.
Whew!!! I’s agree sissy, it’s such a pawsum feelin’ to know you’re Treasured. Anyways, all this stuffs mommy’s gonna sell, it ain’t none of our stuffs right sissy? I’s mean, just cuz we may not play with certain toys doesn’t mean we don’t want ‘em.
(Dezi starts digging through the toy box and rolling around in the nip smell.) Nah Raena, me doesn’t think mommy would sell any of our stuffs. She’s got purrlenty of junk all her own to get rid of. But, it does mean there’s gonna be all kinds of strange peeps in our yard all day. Me hopes mommy can sell everythin’ so she can buy us some extra treats or somethin’.
Extra treats, sissy? I’s thinkin’ I’s might like this garage sale thing. I’s gonna help mommy pick out stuffs to sell, right after I’s finish mine’s brekky and maybe a short meownin’ nap. (Raena hears a rumbling coming from the sky.) Uh sissy, I’s thinkin’ we’re in fur a storm today. You’re not gonna go hide UTB (under the bed) are ya’?
How many times does me have to tell ya’, me’s NOT HIDIN’, me’s checkin’ fur intruders!!! Meowin’ of me’s bravado, did you see that me’s been chosen as the featured Scout at Cat scouts?
Sure sissy, whatever you meow, and a meowsy big Concats on your feature. Mommy and me are very purroud of you. Let’s finish brekky right quick and try to visit some furiends befur the weather gets bad.
Till the next time………………………………………………Be Blest!!!

MeOW Everypawdy, it’s me, Deztinee. Me’s furinally thru with Cat Scouts Summer Camp, and just in time too.
Sure ‘nuff sissy. Mommy might’a killed me this meownin’ ifin not fur you.
Now Raena, you know mommy wouldn’t hurt you, and fur sure she wouldn’t kill ya’.
Well you sure didn’t sound so sure of that this meownin’ when you were mewin’ that squeaky mew with me while mommy had me shoved in the bathroom sink.
Well Raena, me knew mommy wouldn’t purr-pussly hurt you, but you sure were upset. Me just wanted to make sure you knew that me was on your side. Me doesn’t enjoy bloomer cleanin’ either, but sometimes it’s gotta be done. And better mommy with a nice soft wash cloth than our tongues. Since we started eatin’ the fureeze dried raw foods there’s not been much bloomer cleanin’ needed. But, mommy’s always at the ready just in case. And fank the cats she is, cuz you fur sure stunk. Just an FYI, in the future ifin that happens, you shouldn’t scoot on the floor. That just gets stinky everywhere and takes longer to clean up.
Well sissy, I’s was just tryin’ to get it off. I’s knew it stank, and I’s fur sure wasn’t cleanin’ that mess mine’s self. As much as I’s didn’t enjoy the clean up, we are very blest to have a mommy that cares so much ‘bout us. Anyways, enuff ‘bout that. We wanna hear all ‘bout summer camp.
Oh yeah, summer camp. Well Raena, this is the longest event we’ve ever had at Cat Scouts. We started out at Cat Scouts headquarters and took a bus to Yosemite. We had to purrove ourselves worthy to even go, by tyin’ a bow line knot and havin’ our pawrents sign a purrmission slip. Me took me’s guitar along so we could have some sing alongs ‘round the campfire at night. Our furst day there was mostly spent settin’ up camp. We had a snipe hunt that night fur all the new scouts and just hung ‘round the campfire.
This is a really nice bus.
On the second day, we hiked up somethin’ called Half Dome. It was quite the adventure, but we all made it to the top. and the view from up there was amazin’.
The next day, we got instructions fur our furst craft purroject, makin’ a garrison cap. Fank the cats, mommy had taught me to sew. Me had a pair of mommy’s khaki pants to cut up and make me’s cap out of. And mommy had saved a ribbon that came tied to one of our Christmas purresents that me used fur the pipin’. To get credit fur our cap, we had to actually wear it. Me has a large round Ragdoll head, so me’s cap was a little small and me had to have help keepin’ it on me’s head. But me wore it long enuff to get the credit.
The next day we had swimmin’ lessons and a cheerleadin’ competition. Since we spend so much time in the water helpin’ mommy with her showers, me did great with the lake swimmin’.
And then on Wednesday, we had a second craft purroject. Me made mommy an infinity scarf out of a t-shirt and some tie dye paints. Mommy never was one fur t-shirts, so me had no ‘sperience with that tie dyin’ stuffs, but me tried anyways. Like mommy, me’s talents lie elsewhere. Me’s not very crafty. Anyways, we then went on a nature hike to take in some bird watchin’.
The next day was spent mostly workin’ on our craft purrojects. That night we had a s’mores competition ‘round the campfire. And me pulled out the guitar fur some campfire singin’. The next day we gathered fur a poetry workshop and we all had to write 3 poems. That night we had the Knowledge bowl. Me’s patrol won last year, but this year we purrticipated as individuals ‘stead of patrols. And then, Den Master announced the inductees fur the Order of the Arrowhead. Me was passed over fur the fourth time in a row. At that point, me wanted to come home. But mommy reminded me, that we’re not quitters, so me stuck ‘round fur the end of camp and the purrmotion ceremony. Lots of scouts were purrmoted up in rank. So, all in all, camp was fun. Me’s very blest to have a mommy who luvs me enuff to help me enjoy these grand adventures. Virtually of course. Mommy would never let me actually go away fur a week…not even a day.
You’re so right sissy. We are blest to have such a luvvin’ mommy. Glad you had a good time at camp, but I’s also glad it’s over. We’re also blest to have such pawsum furiends. Cat Scouts is a small community made up of kitties whose peeps adore them. I’s also have some other great news sissy. As you know, we were innerviewed by All About Cats and added to their list of Top Cat Blogs.
Yep Raena, we were honored to be innerviewed and added to the list. Fank you very much. You can check out our innerview here and see their list here. As we do every week, we wanna remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. And we wanna fank you all fur bein’ our furiends.
Don’t furget sissy, we’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. Let’s go play befur the storms start back up. Last one up the cat tree’s a …..

Deztinee and RaenaBelle
Hey is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. It’s furinally Furiday, and guess what? It’s stormin’ here again. Yep, it rolled in last night and looks like it’s gonna stay ‘round thru most of next week. As ya’ know, sis Dezi is still off at (virtual) Cat Scouts summer camp. Well, she must’ve found some where that had innernet service cuz she sent an email last night and wanted to come home. Seems she’s been passed over fur the highest purrmotion fur the fourth time and feels like they don’t want her anymore. Of course mommy told her she could come home, but that ifin she did, she would be sendin’ a message that she was a quitter. And, we ain’t no quitters, mommy said. Mommy told her to put on a smile and kill ‘em with kindness. Somethin’ ‘bout ketchin’ more bees with honey or somethin’ like that. Mommy reminded her that she was a Southern Belle and as such, she had a duty to be pawlite and sweet, no matter what.
Me’s never gonna be anythin’ but a Sabertooth.
I’s couldn’t care less ‘bout all that, I’s ready fur sissy to come home. Ya’ know, keepin’ up with the bloggy all by mine’s self is a lot of work. And besides, I’s don’t want anypawdy pickin’ on mine’s sissy…that’s mine’s job. MOL Hey, did ya’ll know they have movies on that chatter box with kitties in ‘em? Sure ‘nuff. I’s was watchin’ one the other day, and there was this big kitty that kept chuffin’ at me. She sure seemed worried. I’s kept tryin’ to tell her I’s was right here, but she just kept chuffin’.
I’s right here kitty. Why can’t you hear me?
And then, she tried to get me to help her take down a behemouth of a beast. Somethin’ ‘bout bein’ a ketcher?. I’s don’t know why she’d want li’l ol me to be a ketcher. You should’a seen the size of that thing. Do any of you kitties watch the chatter box?
Are you crazy? I’s not ketchin’ that thing, it’s Huuuuuuge!!!!
And hey, did ya’ll know mine’s mommy can sew? I’s never seen anythin’ like that machine she calls a sewin’ machine. I’s always knew there was a table beside the counters but I’s had no idea what was under all that clutter. Yep, mommy had some clutter. She says it isn’t clutter it’s shoppin’ bags, but hey, ifin ya’ don’t do any shoppin’ and ya’ never use those bags, they’re clutter. Right? Anyways, sis Dezi needed a hat fur summer camp, so mommy moved all those shoppin’ bags and voila, a sewin’ machine appeared. Now that was cool. Right up till the minute mommy broke the needle. Then, it was all, arms wavin’ in the air and yellin’ “danger, danger, get away, stay back.” Fankfully, she was able to get all the pieces up and change out that needle in time to get sissy’s hat made. I’s can’t wait to see what she makes next.
I’s’ll just watch the rain and wait fur sissy.
Well, guess I’s better run. I’s hear thunder rumblin’ thru again. Fank the cats, sissy will be back home soon to tell us all ‘bout summer camp. I’s know ya’ll wanna know how it went and hear all ‘bout her adventures there. We’ll be ‘round to visit ‘tween storms, so ya’ll stay safe now, ya’ hear?.
Till the next time……………………………………..Be Blest!!!
