MeOW-llo Furiends. C’mon Raena, it’s Blest Sunday. Me’s sure you’ve got some Blessings to count today, right?

          Kittens!!! Is it already Blest Sunday? Time sure does fly by. but you’re right, I’s do have many Blessings to be fanky fankful fur this week.

Yeah Raena, time sure is movin’ by fast. It’s hard to believe that we’re already almost a full 2 months into the new year. It’s been slow goin’ ‘round here. Mommy’s tryin’ hard to get things packed up, but she can’t reach some of the things that are up high and down low isn’t much better.   

 

          Ain’t that the truth sissy. Y, just the other day she was tryin’ to pack up a cabinet and fell flat on her bee-hind. I’s didn’t even know we had that stuffs. There was a pan big enuff fur me to curl up in and take a nap. Guess mommy didn’t need to use it, so it got put in the cabinet of utter darkness. 

 

Raena stands in box looking upMeOW Now that’s a pan mommy.

 

 

 

The cabinet of utter darkness? Where did you get that from?  

 

          Well, you know, mommy never opens those cabinet doors, so it’s always dark in there. The cabinet of utter darkness, see?   

 

Sometimes Raena, your logic scares me. But, me guesses it does kind’a make sense. Anyways, did you know that our Blogoversary is tomorrow? That’s right, we’ve been blogging fur 5 years. So much has changed in that time. When we started out, sis Lexi was still with us. We call our blog a happy accident cuz we didn’t have a clue what we were doin’ back then.

          And we still don’t sissy…at least some days. But, it is really cool to think ‘bout sharin’ our lives and makin’ so many amazin’ furiends in that time.  

 

 

 

Yeah Raena, we could’ve never ‘magined how our lives would change when we wrote our furst posty. Back then we used heavy cat speak. Not like our posty’s today that have occasional words and a more southern connotation. Cuz of our blog and amazin’ furiends, we got to attend BlogPaws in Nashville. We’ll always believe that trip is what gave us extra time with sis Lexi. She luvved to travel and that trip put the spring back in her step fur months. She was a huge Blessing in me’s life and mommy’s. We miss her so much.

          She sounds so amazin’ sissy. I’s wish I’s could have known her.  

 

She was Raena. But, she had to go away to make room fur you. Someday you’ll meet her when we all meet again in heaven. Till then, we have her memory to guide us and help comfort us. And of course, we can’t furget when we introduced you to the world. You sure were a scroungy stinky little thing.

          It wasn’t like I’s could help it sissy. Fanky fankfully, mommy cleaned me up and made me all purretty as soon as we got settled in. I’s had never seen so many toys or had so much room to run in. I’s was in mine’s own little kitty heaven. More ‘purrtantly, I’s felt safe fur the furst time in mine’s short life. It was amazin’. That’s when I’s learned ‘bout bein’ Blest. I’s had a luvvin’ furever mommy, a gawjus sisfur, and more toys than I’s could play with at one time. I’s had no idea that day, how many pawsum furiends I’s was gonna have. To be luvved is somethin’ everypawdy should get to feel at least once in their lifetime.

Yeah Raena, me couldn’t believe mommy brought you home, but you turned out not to be that bad. Altho’, you do still get on me’s nerves every once in a while. Anyways, cuz you were gonna need trainin’ we decided to start our Service Cat posty’s. We thought we’d post a few Trainin’ stories and that would be that. But, they were so pawpular that they evolved to encompass all kinds of topics from Trainin’ Tips to Nutrition. So, we infurmally changed the name to Training Tips and Everything Feline. That series is goin’ on 3 years now.

          Don’t furget the Blessing Train sissy. That’s been so much fun. We just had our 2nd annual Blessing Train event and it was better than the furst. I’s can’t wait fur our next one.

You’re right Raena. It’s always fun when our furiends purrticipate in our events. And of course, we can never furget ‘bout Blest Sunday. It’s been a pawrt of our blog in some form from the beginning. We’ve had more than our share of bad times, but no matter what may be goin’ on ‘round us, we knew we always wanted to have a day where we could share our Blessings and Give Thanks fur those Blessings.   

 

          I’s luvs Blest Sundays sissy. I’s fanky fank God every day fur mommy and you and all our furiends. I’s so very fanky fankful fur mine’s life.

Thank you fur bein’ Blessings in our lives. We hop you’ve enjoyed seein’ some of our flashback fotos.   

 

          I’s sure did sissy. I’s gonna link us up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and then take a short nap befur mommy starts packin’ again.

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. We heard a saying the other day and wanted to pass it on. No matter what you may be goin’ thru, things will get better…”it can’t rain all the time”. Thank you fur bein’ with us fur the past 5 years. Here’s to many many more.

Tell All Tuesday: Potty Boxes and Litter

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s comin’ to ya’ live from the Three Belles Ranch. Ya’ know, ya’ll just keep provin’ over and over again what amazin’ furiends we have. We are so touched by your luvs and suppurrt. Fanky fank you from all of us. Now, let me tell ya’, we’ve been workin’ overtime here. Mommy’s been havin’ some major panic attacks and they’re affectin’ just ‘bout everythin’…includin’ orderin’ our supplies. Ya’ know, fanky fankfully our noms are on auto delivery so they ship out on a regular schedule. Since we started usin’ the Litter Robot, and some kitty uses the occasional piddle pad, (cough) sissy, then we don’t need litter every month anymore. That bein’ meowed, we needed it this month; but our auto delivery shipped 4 days early and mommy didn’t get to add our litter to it. Mommy was a little stressed.   

 

Raena stands on cat tree profile

 

 

 

          Ain’t that the truth Raena. Not only was she gonna have to pay shippin’, now that Chewy be owned by Petsmart, we have to pay tax. Mommy’s always complainin’ ‘bout how high our taxes are here, 10%. She says it’s ridiculous. 

 

Yeah sissy, so while she was stressin’ out tryin’ to figger out how and where she was gonna get our litter, we got an email that made her yahoo fur joy. Y, Youd’ve thought she got a 10 carat chocolate diamond or somethin’. 

 

          What in the world Raena? A 10 carat chocolate diamond? Where did you get that?

 

Dezi rolls on nip toys

 

 

 

Well sissy, everypawdy knows women luvs diamonds, and it’s Valentine’s month. Everypawdy’s talkin’ ‘bout how you should give your Valentine a box of chocolates; and mommy likes chocolate. So, the bestest of both world’s is a chocolate diamond.  

 

          (Dezi shakes her head)  Oh Raena, guess sometimes ya’ can’t argue with your logic. But, mommy didn’t get no chocolate diamond, did she? 

 

Nope sissy, no chocolate diamonds, not even a little one. N’stead, she was x’cited that we were bein’ offured the chance to review our favorite litter, sWheatScoop.  

 

Raena walks by sWheatScoop cat litter

 

 

 

          Me thinks mommy may need to get out more Raena. Nopawdy should get that x’cited over kitty litter. MOL  

 

Ya’ might be right sissy. But, fur now, we’re gonna tell everypawdy why we like SwheatScoop so much. Furst let’s see what Chewy says: 

 

 

Description

New, improved sWheat Scoop Multi-Cat litter not only eliminates odors better, but clumps faster and firmer than ever. It’s great for high-traffic litter boxes that are frequently in use! Unlike many clumping litters, sWheat Scoop contains no silica dust, sodium bentonite or chemicals of any kind. That’s why it’s even recommended by veterinarians for kittens and post-surgical cats. Since sWheat Scoop litter absorbs moisture faster than ordinary clumping litter brands, the rest of the litter stays clean and fresh. Which means it can last longer between litter box changes, saving you significant time and money.

Key Benefits

  • Breakthrough kitty litter is made from 100% wheat for multi-cat homes.

  • Powerful, long-lasting odor control works to effectively neutralize odors.

  • Wheat starches clump fast and firmly for easy scooping.

  • Recommended by veterinarians with no added dyes or perfumes.

  • Eco-friendly, all-natural litter is made from wheat and is 100% biodegradable.

          We received the 12 pound bag of sWheatScoop Multi Cat. sWheatScoop comes in 3 formulas with 3 sizes in each. It costs t’ween $10.99 – $37.04. Mommy says she can’t tell the difference t’ween the original and the multi cat. She says they look the same, smell the same, and work the same way. The bag contains nuffin’ but wheat. There’s not purrfumes or dyes. We kitties don’t really care fur a purrfumey pawtty box, so ‘purreciate the naturalness of sWheatScoop. Mommy says it clumps well and definitely eliminates pawtty box odors. Mommy says the only time she really smells anythin’ is when a fresh deposit is made. Warm urine hits the wheat and smells a bit like a loaf of bread.

As fur trackin’, mommy says it’s purretty much like every other litter on the market. C’mon peeps, ya’ have a cat, litter boxes and tracked litter is just one of the things that come along with us. As fur us kitties with extra floof in the bloomer area, let me tell ya’, more offen than not, some of those litter pawrticals are gonna stick to our furs. You know, we have to drip dry after all.

Nice little clump, easy for scooping

 

 

 

          RaenaBelle Maycee, me can’t believe you meowed that. 

 

What? It’s the truth ain’t it sissy?    

 

          Well, yeah, but you’re not s’posed to meow it out loud.  

 

Raena sniffs bag of sWheatScoop cat litter

 

 

 

Whatever. I’s just meowin’ it like it is. Mommy says that’s another reason she really likes sWheatScoop. It clumps in the box, but not in our intestines. And, it breaks down quickly when flushed in the human pawtty box. Maybe the most ‘purrtant reason mommy likes sWheatScoop, is that you’ll actually use the pawtty box ‘stead of the floor. It also works well in our Litter Robot, We can’t meow ‘bout other automated pawtty boxes, but we suspect it would work cuz it clumps well. Anyways, we give it 3 paws up each and a thumb up from mommy.

          Chewy has lots of great purroducts fur all the pets in your life. They offur furee speedy shippin’ on all orders of $49.00 and up. With Valentine’s day just ‘round the corner, ya’ might wanna take a look. Ya’ know, just in case you furgot to buy that special furry somethin’ to celebrate.

 

 

Disclaimer: We received the SwheatScoop cat litter in exchange for our honest opinion. As always, we tell it like we see it and only bring products we believe would be of interest to you, our readers and friends. All opinions are our own unless stated otherwise.

We’re s’posed to get gifts too sissy? Hmmmmm Ya’ reckon mommy got us somethin’?  Besides litter I’s mean. We better sign off now, there’s still so much fur mommy to do.

 

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

Blest Sunday: Busy But Blest

MeOW-llo Welcome to a brand new Blest Sunday, one of our most favorite days of the week. It’s been so crazy ‘round here this past week, mommy said the days started runnin’ into one another. Ya’ know mommy has memory purroblems so she likes to have a schedule. She says some of those memory issues are from old age. Ya’ know, she grew up with dinosaurs. Anyways, when her schedule gets messed up, it really throws her off. So, havin’ her counselor come on Furiday ‘stead of Monday and tryin’ to figger out what to pack and where to start, had mommy’s head all in a tizzy. Not to mention all the extra pain cuz of the colds and the doctor messin’ with her medications. Oh and she’s gotta get things together fur her complaint and a new lease. Mommy says she ain’t lettin’ ‘em push us ‘round or out. Altho’, we’d fur sure be up fur movin’ away to a whole new place. We’ll be all packed up; it’d be the purrfect time.

          Don’t furget sissy, we’d have to rent some kind’a truck, cuz the car still ain’t fixed. Fur some reason the mechanic won’t call us back with a propurr estimate to fix the busted head gasket. Looks like mommy’s gonna have to find a new mechanic. 

 

Raena lays in chair watching Dezi bathe

 

 

 

Yep Raena, somethin’ else to go on mommy’s schedule. And, with everythin’ that’s been goin’ on, we’ve not been able to visit our furiends, certainly not the way we’d like. We really miss ya’ll. Even tho’ we’ve not been able to visit, we say a purrayer fur ya’ every day. Anyways, busy or not, crazy or not, we’re still Blest. At the moment, we have a roof over our heads and warmth in the cold. Food in our bellies, mommy’s fankful fur her coffee, and an abundance of luv.  

 

Dezi profile laying on floor

 

 

 

          We sure do sissy. What more could a kitty girl asked fur? Altho’ I’s do really miss visitin’ with our furiends. Meowin’ of furiends, we got a card with some green papers this past week from awnty Christine and Spike the Scottish Black Cat, and uncle Greg and the gang at Feline Café’. Fanky fank you. We so ‘purreciate you luvs and suppurrt and furiendship. 

    

Raena lays atop the cat tree

 

 

 

Yes, fank ya’ll. And awnty Cindy sent mommy some old fashioned saltwater taffy that she found at a Stuckies. Me’s never heard of this place, but mommy says she ‘members ‘em from her childhood and thought they’d all closed down. Mommy’s favoritest candy in the whole world is peppermint saltwater taffy. Fank you awnty Cindy, mommy enjoyed her gift.  

  

Dezi and Raena sniff taffy gift from Cindy

 

 

 

          Did mommy let you try any sissy?  

   

‘Course not Raena. Mommy said it wasn’t fur kitties. Sometimes, me wonders ifin she just says that cuz she’s stingy and wants it all to herself.  

 

          Nah sissy, mommy wouldn’t do that…would she? Nah, she wouldn’t. Mommy’s the one that’s always tellin’ us how ‘purrtant it is to share. Anyways, mommy says she has work to do, so we better post our Sunday Selfies, link up with the Kitties Blue and get to work. 

 

Dezi lays pretty on the floor

 

 

 

Sure ’nuff Raena. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to Give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. Fank you so much fur bein’ Blessings in ours. And, fur your conitnued purrayers and patience durin’ this time. We purromiss to visit when we can, and hopefully this will all settle down soon and things can go back to some kind of normal.  

 

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