Blest Sunday: Southern Hospitality Only Goes So Far

MeOW Raena, it’s time fur Blest Sunday.

          Sure ‘nuff sissy. And have we ever been Blessed. As most of ya’ know, we recently had visitors. Today, we’re gonna wrap up that visit. Ifin ya’ missed pawrt 1, you can read it here. Now, let’s get on with our visit.

 

 Raena looks up at Gizmo sitting in Mary's lap

Hey Gizmo, mine’s name is RaenaBelle.

 

 

We’ve had several peeps remawrk ‘bout how well we did havin’ Gizmo the kitty visit with us Raena. We should admit that there was a couple of hisses and one growl. We’re not meowin’ who did the hissin’ or the growlin’, since there was no fightin’ or whacky paws involved. Mommy says it was mostly pawsturin’ and lettin’ each other know when one was a bit too close fur comfurt. Ya’ know, it may be our nature to sniff backsides, but that doesn’t mean the sniffee actually enjoys it. Fur the most pawrt, we had a great and uneventful visit, kitties and humans too. Our Southern hospitality shined.

 

 Mommy A holds Raena

I’s luvs mine’s mommy.

 

 

          Yeah sissy, awnty Mary Beth took lots of fotos of me and you with mommy. You know how happy that made mommy. She always says she doesn’t have many fotos of her with us. I’s could’a done with a good brushin’ tho’, cuz mine’s neck ruff was a bit wild. But, I’s really don’t care. I’s just luvs it when mommy holds me, ruffled furs or not. 

 

Mommy A holds Dezi

Fotos with mommy. Me’s all in.

 

Yep Raena, and you just luv the camera. MOL 

 

Raena checks out the pizza boxIs that pizza? Hmmmm Now where’s mine’s plate?

          Well sissy, you missed what happened next cuz of those noisy thunder boomers. Uncle Garth left fur a few minutes and when he returned, he brought in a pizza. Oh Kittens  Did it ever smell delishus. But then, the worst thing that could’a happened, happened. Mommy didn’t even fix me a plate. Nope, not even a snack plate. ‘Stead, mommy, awnty Mary Beth and uncle Garth sat there eatin’ OUR PIZZA!!!  Can you believe it? I’s sure couldn’t. Don’t they know that pizzas are kitty food? Not to mention, pizza is our favorite food. I’s tried to help mine’s self to a slice, but I’s couldn’t balance on the wheelchair arm and open the box at the same time. So, I’s gave ‘em the ole kitty evil eye.

 

 Raena sniffs the pizza

Yep, that’s pizza. Yummmmmmm The smell’s divine.

 

 

Well Raena, did it work? 

 

 Raena sniffs the pizza

I’s’ll just help mine’s self.

 

 

Raena looks over the pizza box

Hey! Just who do ya’ll think you are? Don’t you know any pizza

that comes in this house belongs to us cats?

 

 

 

          Not very well. Least, they did leave us a piece each. Like that was gonna fill us up. Hmmmpht Even worse, mommy didn’t save us any of the pepperoni’s off the pieces she ate. I’s mean, she ate every last bite, just like we weren’t even there. The nerve. I’s tellin’ ya’, I’s just couldn’t believe mine’s own blue eyes. All mine’s Southern Belle hospitality flew right out the window when that happened. You know, Southern Hospitality can only go so far. And then, they wanted to take luvvy dovey fotos with me. Hmmmpht  Like that was gonna happen. MOL

 

 Mary Beth holds Raena while Raena looks at her

Alright awnty Mary Beth, one kiss…just one I’s said.

 

Oh Raena, mommy takes really good care of us. Just cuz we didn’t get 1 pizza shouldn’t make you act ugly. We did get a piece later. And besides, we luv awnty Mary Beth, uncle Garth and Gizmo. Me was very purroud of you fur sharin’ the cat tree with him. And lettin’ awnty Mary Beth and uncle Garth hold you. Me was also purroud of ya’, that you didn’t get all jealous when mommy gave Gizzy some luvvin’. 

 

 Raena lays in Garth's lap

Hmmmmmm I’s thinkin’ men, a daddy to be purrcise,

might not be so bad after all. Mommmmmmmy…?

 

 

          Of course I’s didn’t get jealous sissy. After all, he never took off his jacket (harness), so I’s knew he wasn’t actually stayin’. And, I’s know mommy has purrlenty of luvvin’ to go ‘round. Cousin Gizzy seemed to like the scent me up game too. Mommy said his motor boat started right up. I’s surpurrised he didn’t float right off her lap.

 

Mommy A plays scent me up with Gizmo

Purrrrrrrrrrrr Love ya’ autny A

 

 

Hmmmpht You know better Raena. Mommy’s hold may look gentle, but she’s got a furm grasp on any kitty she holds. They ain’t goin’ anywhere lessen she wants ‘em too. MOL  Me sure hated that they had to leave so soon. Cuz of those thunder boomers, me missed sayin’ goodbye. So me looked fur them all day the next day.

 

 Mommy A holds Gizmo

 

 

          Me too sissy. Our visit was way too short. I’s sure hope they can come back.

 

Yep Raena. Ya’ know, we never ‘magined meetin’ any of our online furiends when we started all this. But, we have been so blessed that we’ve actually met quite a few of them. We’re always up fur a visit from our amazin’ furiends and wish we could meet you all. We’re sure hopin’ we can manage to go to BlogPaws this next year. It’s really close to us, so we’d hate to miss it. You’d have a great time Raena. Sis Lexi and me really had a blast the year we went. 

 

 Mary Beth holds Raena

I’s luvs ya’ awnty Mary Beth, even ifin ya’ didn’t share your pizza with me.

 

 

          And we could meet more furiends? (Dezi nods to Raena) I’s would luvs that sissy. In the meantime, anypawdy who wants to come and see us…Come on down, Southern hospitality at Deziz World reigns.

 

 Garth, Mary Beth and mommy A

Uncle Garth, Awnty Mary Beth and mommy A

 

 

Sure ‘nuff Raena, even ifin we don’t get a pizza. MOL  We wanna fank uncle Garth, awnty Mary Beth and Gizmo fur comin’ to see us and fur everythin’. They’ve been really good to us. Ya’ know, they sent us our kitty beds, toys and green papers and all kinds of goodies thru the years. Mostly, they’ve luvved us and our mommy. We are so blest to have so many pawsum furiends. And yep, YOU, yes you readin’ this posty are one of them. Fank you so much fur bein’ a pawrt of our lives. We luv you very much. We think ‘bout and purray fur all our furiends every day, you included. Like we always do, we’d like to remind you to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your life. Maybe, we’re one of ‘em.

          I’s couldn’t have meowed it better mine’s self sissy. We’d also like to say, we think (paws crossed) the car’s fixed. Mommy ordered the pawrt and the neighbor boy put it on fur us this past week. Mommy’s still gotta make a few more short test drives just to be on the safe side, but we’re purretty sure, the car is good to go. We’ll keep ya’ posted. Mommy was shocked at the cost of oil and anti-freeze. So, mine’s VET ‘pointment is on hold fur a bit. Fanky fank you all fur your purrayers and good wishes. They do help. Ifin you could spare a purrayer fur our awnty Ellen and her Phoebe cat from 15 and Meowing, we’d purreciate it. We’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. We’re gonna go play now.

 

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

Blest Sunday: Gizzy’s Coming To Dinner

Hey Raena, hurry up. We gotta write our Blest Sunday posty and get ready. 

 

 Dezi and Raena sit on shower benches in bathroom

 

 

          What lit a fire under your bloomers, sissy? And what are we getting’ ready fur?

 

Dezi lays atop the cat tree

Me will just lay here and watch fur Gizzy.

 

 

(Excitedly Dezi meows) Oh Raena, we be the blestest kitties ever. We’re havin’ visitors today. One of me and sis Lexi’s furstest ever awnties and uncles are comin’ here to our ‘pawrtment, to see us!!! And guess what else? They’re bringin’ one of our furstest furiends, Gizmo. We like to call him Gizzy. He’s a sweet tuxie boy that has diabetes. Me just can’t even believe they’re comin’ all the way from Arizona to see us. 

 

          Really sissy? OMC I’s can’t hardly wait!!! We’re gonna have so much fun. Ya’ reckon we can all go fur a stroll? Or maybe we can all play on the cat tree. You are gonna come out and visit with Gizzy, right sissy? 

 

(Flabbergasted, Dezi meows) What?! Of course me’s gonna come out and visit with ‘em. 

 

 Raena lays on floor

 

 

          Hmmpht  We’ll see. Anyways, as we do every Blest Sunday, we’d like to remind all of you to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. As most of you know, our car’s been broke, the wheelchair’s broke, and we didn’t have innernet access fur a bit, so we’re way behind on our visitin’. We purromise we’ll be ‘round as soon as we can. Mommy’s just been a little overwhelmed with all that’s goin’ on and she’s not very good at helpin’ us with catputer stuffs when that happens. But, we are so grateful fur all of you. Fanky fank you all fur bein’ our furiends and understandin’. 

 

Don’t furget Raena, we’re joinin’ the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies.

 

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

Chatting Cats: Watching Out The Door

EDIT: We don’t know when this will post as all internet, phone and cell service went out in our area at 10:30 a.m. Friday 9/15/2017. We have put this post on a loop to publish with the first signal.

 

 

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. (Raena sits on the perch staring out the door and meowing loudly at mommy and the neighbors looking at the car.) Mommy, I’s can see you!!! Purrleeeeeease…let me out there with you!!! MeeeOWwwwwww

 

Dezi looks out door from cat tree

 

          RaenaBelle!!! What is all the caterwaulin’ ‘bout? A kitty can’t take a purropurr beauty nap what with all that noise goin’ on.

 

 Raena lounges on perch and watches the rain out the front door

 

 

I’s wanna be outside with mommy and the new neighbors, sissy.

 

 

 Dezi and Raena look out door from cat tree and small perch

 

 

          (Dezi gets on the cat tree and looks out the door) Raena? Do you see mommy glistenin’ sweating in the sun? It’s hot out there. You don’t wanna go outside. It’s much nicer in here with the air conditioner. Mommy ain’t goin’ nowhere…least not without us.

 

 Dezi and Raena look out door from cat tree and small perch

 

 

I’s know sissy, but I’s still wanna be out there with her. She said the new neighbors are movin’ cuz the manager’s harassin’ ‘em. But they’ve been kind enuff to help mommy work on the car. Seems our car’s radiator tank sprung a leak and hopefully that’s the reason fur all that gurglin’ and sputterin’ the other day. The neighbor boy couldn’t check the fans cuz of all the spewin’ water and antifreeze. Mommy says that antifreeze is the reason I’s can’t go outside with her. 

 

          That’s true Raena. Antifreeze is deadly fur us anipals. Unfurtunately some peeps aren’t very careful with that stuffs and we anipals seem to be attracted to it like a moth to a flame. 

 

I’s don’t see how sissy, that stuff stinks. When the car did all that sputterin’ the other day, I’s got all choked up. I’s couldn’t get outta the car fast enuff.

 

 Dezi and Raena look out door from Cat tree and small perch

 

 

          Me doesn’t know either Raena, but every year lots of anipals end up at the VET cuz of antifreeze poisonin’. Anyways, mommy ordered one of those tanks fur the neighbor boy to put on the car, and we’re purrayin’ hard that’ll fix everythin’. In the meantime, mommy says our surpurrise is comin’ this weekend. And, since she’s been busy all week with the car, she hasn’t gotten to the house cleanin’ that needs to be done. Looks like we’re gonna be helpin’ with that today and tomorrow.

 

 Raena paws at the mop Raena checks out the mop

 

 

Yep sissy, since mommy can’t actually drive the car, she had to order the pawrt and it won’t be here till Tuesday. Why don’t you run the carpet monster and I’s will help mommy mop.

 

 Dezi vacuums

 

 

     Sure Raena, whatever you say…as if. MOL 

 

Then we can play. I’s can’t wait fur our surpurrise. (Dezi and Raena run off excitedly and play zoomies with the piddle pads in the bathroom

 

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

Chatting Cats: What Fun Are Rules

Hey Raena, wha’cha’ doin’? 

 

 Dezi sits in wheelchair while Raena sits atop the stroller beside the printer

 

          I’s checkin’ out this funny machine. Didn’t you hear it start up all by itself? It’s been doin’ that a lot lately. It starts makin’ these funny noises and then it suddenly spits out paper at ya’. Why do ya’ reckon it does that sissy? 

 

Me’s not sure Raena, but it always does it after mommy says “The printer’s fixin’ to kick on girls.”  Me thinks she means that strange machine, cuz after it spits out paper, she usually goes in there and gets it. 

 

 Dezi sits in wheelchar while Raena checks out printer from atop the stroller

 

          I’s wonder what that paper says, sissy? You know, mommy gets all beside herself when I’s try to stop it. Y, The other day, that silly machine popped open and scared me. It caught mine’s tail and wouldn’t let go.

 

Dezi bathes paw while laying on Yeowww nip toy

As me recalls Raena, mommy had been tellin’ you to get down and leave it alone. Me may not unnerstand why mommy has the rules she does, but they usually purrtect us in some way. Ifin you had left it alone like mommy said to, me bets your tail wouldn’t have gotten caught. 

 

          But sissy, what fun would that be? Mommy has soooooo many rules. “Don’t get up there. Don’t touch that. Leave it alone, it’s mine.” Kittens!!!  It’s like she doesn’t want us to have any fun…Ever!!! 

 

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

 

Purrleeeeeease Raena (Dezi meows with sarcasm). We’ve got lots of toys to play with. Truth is, we don’t have that many rules. Mommy says the Don’ts are there to purrtect us and keep us safe. (Suddenly, there’s a loud noise outside and Dezi looks out the door from atop the cat tree while Raena looks out the door from her small perch. Dezi meows loudly as she takes off running towards the bedroom) Run fur your life…the lawn crew’s here!!! 

 

 Raena eats breakfast

Fur some reason, da food always tastes better outta sissy’s plate.

 

 

          (Raena jumps down from her perch and looks around for a minute. As she saunters over to Dezi’s breakfast plate she meows) What’s all the x’citement fur sissy, they’re here every week? You’d think you’d be used to it by now. Oh well, more noms fur me. MOL  (Raena meows loudly towards the bedroom) Hey sissy, why don’t we ask mommy fur some treats. We still have a bag left. 

 

(Dezi lays at the bedroom door and meows) Yeah, sure Raena. Treats sound great. You go ahead and ask, and me will be waitin’.

 

 Raena scratches on the butterfly cat scratcher

 

          Why am I’s the only one that ever has to ask fur treats sissy?

 

Why would me go to all that trouble of givin’ mommy “the look” and dancin’ ‘round, when me can just hang out and wait. Ifin me waits long enuff, you’ll do all the work fur me. MOL 

 

          Sissy?!?! 

 

 Dezi hunches on the floor watching over mommy

 

Uh, Oh, Uh, Did me say that out loud? Uh, me just means you do a much better job at askin’ fur treats…Yeah, that’s it. You know, who could say no to your bootyful face? 

 

          Aaaaaaaaaaaaaw Fanky fank you sissy. That’s so sweet of you. 

 

Whew (Dezi wipes her paw across her brow and meows) She bought it. That was a close one. Guess me better go with her this time. She might be askin’ fur and gettin’ treats that me’s not gettin’ sometimes. Hey Raena, are you goin’ with mommy tomorrow? 

 

 Dezi and Raena eat treats while on the liberty cat tree

 

         Well, I’s sure hope so. Least that’s the plan fur now. I’s hope all our furiends will keep mommy and us in their purrayers tomorrow. Mommy’s believin’ the ‘pointment’s gonna go well, and that everythin’ is gonna be okay. It’s been a long time comin’, but we can furinally see an end to it all.

 

 Dezi and Raena bathe atop the Liberty cat tree

 

Me knows mommy’s gonna feel a lot better when it’s all over. Maybe not at furst, cuz there’s gonna be more of that no nose blowin’ and Malt O Meal cereal fur a while. But that won’t last furever, and then she won’t have to worry ‘bout any more teethie infections. And, we’ll be havin’ that play date pawrty all weekend. Let’s go make sure all the toys you haven’t broken have good batteries. 

 

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

Blest Sunday: Growing Green

MeOW It’s Blest Sunday. Me luvs Blest Sunday. Ya’ know, we count our blessings each day, but we so luv takin’ the time to fank God fur them and fank all our furiends fur sharin’ their lives with us.

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

          I’s luvs Blest Sunday too Dezi. We really are blest to have so much. Our furiend Valentine recently innerviewed us, and it reminded us just how blest we really are. You can check out the furst installment here.

 

Dezi lays atop the Liberty Cat Tree

Yeah Raena, what an innerview. Valentine asked a lot of great questions. Of course we meowed ‘bout how it is bein’ Service Kitties, but he also asked a lot of questions, we bet peeps have wondered ‘bout and just haven’t asked. As a matter of fact, he asked so many good questions, he’s gonna post it in pawrts.

 

          Ya’ reckon he also decided to do it that way cuz we’re kinda wordy sissy? 

 

Wordy? Who’ve you been meowin’ too Raena? We’re not wordy, we just have lots to say. ‘Purrtant stuffs. Wordy means you’re meowin’ nonsense; and we don’t meow nonsense?.

 

 Raena looks out from the top of the Liberty cat tree

 

          Of course I’s agree with you sissy. But, we have been called wordy and long winded befur. I’s don’t know why anypawdy would say that, but mommy says it’s true. 

 

Well, that’s okay Raena. Peeps can say whatever they want. Mommy says us Southerners have lots of colorful ways to express ourselves. So, we’re just doin’ what comes naturally. MOL 

 

 Raena bites the Cat grass pail from Valentine

 

          Well sissy, did you see what Valentine and his mommy sent us as a fanky fank ya’?

 

 

 Dezi watches Raena with the cat grass kit from atop the Liberty cat tree

 

Me sure did Raena. Mommy said she’d never seen such a cute little grass kit. We’d never heard of Maggies Micro-greens befur, but we can’t wait fur our grass to start growin’. Fank you so much Valentine, we do luv grass.

  

 Raena plays with the cat grass kit from Valentine

 

          That’s fur sure sissy. I’s couldn’t hardly wait fur mommy to get it planted up. ‘Pawrently, we have to wait fur it to sprout now. Kinda like when mommy grows her salads in the Aerogarden.

 

 Dezi lays atop the Liberty Cat tree and watches Raena with the cat grass kit from Valentine

 

 

Me sure hopes we don’t have to wait that long Raena. Fanks to awnty Anonymous, mommy’s got more salad greens to plant fur herself. Looks like we’ll all be eatin’ salads befur too long. MOL

 

          Awnty Anonymous also sent mommy some more of that shelf stable milk so she could make more of that cheater mac and cheese. We really do ‘purreciate her. Mommy made a big ole plate last night.

 

 Casr of Organic shelf stable milk

 

Yep, and then you jumped on the counter right next to that hot burner. Oh Me Cats were you in trouble!!! 

 

          Yeah sissy, I’s guess I’s shouldn’t have done that. Mommy was so scared she was cryin’. And I’s never seen mommy move that fast, have you? Did you see her come runnin’ fur me? 

 

Who could miss it Raena. Her arms were flailin’ thru the air and she was hollerin’ “Danger!!! Danger!!! Don’t step on that burner!!!”. 

 

          She snatched me up so fast mine’s head was spinnin’. I’s purrobably won’t be doin’ that again. MOL 

 

 Dezi and Raena atop the Liberty Cat tree

 

Well Raena, me’s sure mommy will be happy to hear that. Ya’ know, there’s usually a reason fur the rules mommy makes. We might not always unnerstand, but mommy says they’re fur our own good and safety. You coulda got really hurt ifin you’d stepped on that hot burner. Me’s just glad mommy got to you befur anythin’ bad happened. Yet another blessin’ we’re fankful fur this week.

 

          You’re right sissy. I’s a blest kitty fur sure. We’re so fankful fur all our furiends too. We live such blest lives. 

 

 3 cats meowing thank you

 

We do Raena. And we’d like to remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give fanks fur the blessings in your lives. Let’s link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and go play. Maybe we can watch our pail of cat grass grow. MOL

 

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