Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. (Raena sees something out of the corner of her eye) MeOW Sissy!!! Did you see that?!!! What was that? Where’d it go? (Raena runs and jumps on the scratcher in front of the t.v. where a fly zooms past her) Where’d you go little fly? Come back here! I’s RaenaBelle, Queen of mine’s domain and the mighty huntress. I’s put fear in all those who cross mine’s path. I’s the scourge of the insect world.
Scourge…Hmmpht You got that right. MOL Raena, you better be careful or you’re gonna hurt yourself. What would it look like ifin the mighty huntress, queen of her domain was done in by a little fly?
(Raena jumps off the scratcher and back on again and again pawing at the fly. She runs to the door perch, the kitchen and back to the scratcher chasing the fly.) Come here fly, I’s gonna get ya’. Once I’s got your scent I’s don’t stop fur nuffin’. You’s might as well give up now. (Looking over at Dezi, Raena meows) I’s not gonna get hurt sissy. I’s the greatest huntress ever. I’s learned everythin’ I’s know ‘bout huntin’ from mine’s lion furiends in the tv box when I’s was just a baby kitten. ‘Member sissy? I’s helped them hunt a buffalo, and a zebra, and even a giraffe.
Come ‘ere fly, just a little closer…
Yeah, yeah, yeah, Raena. Me ‘members you sittin’ in front of the tv blockin’ everypawdy’s view. The lions did all the huntin’ and the killin’.,,And all the eatin’ too ifin me recalls. MOL You just chattered on pawin’ at the tv. (The fly zooms past Raena who jumps down and follows it up the liberty cat tree where she loses it for a minute. The she sees it twirling around the ceiling fan and she leans forward looking as tho’ she’s going to leap onto the fan blades) RaenaBelle!!! Don’t you dare jump on the ceiling fan from there. You’ll fall and hurt yourself and mommy’ll have a literal heart attack. Ifin you got all cut up and broken mommy would never furgive you. Besides she hasn’t ordered any of that fauna-care first aid spray.
I’s not gonna get hurt sissy. I’s indestructable, like that superman. Yeah, I’s RaenaBelle the SuperCat. I’s need a cape to go with mine’s crown. I’s never gonna stop till I’s ketch that fly. And, I’s not gonna get hurt. Mommy’ll make sure that never happens. You know she’s always sayin’ how she’d never let anyone or anythin’ hurt us no matter what. So see? I’s purrfectly safe.
But Raena, mommy can’t do anythin’ to save ya’ ifin you do somethin’ stupid.
That’s not nice sissy. You’s better take it back or I’s gonna tell mommy that you called me stupid.
Me didn’t call you stupid Raena, but it’s beginnin’ to sound like you might be.
Now, where’d that fly go? Come here mine’s purretty, I’s gonna get..Oooooh dinner. Well fly, it’s been fun playin’, but I’s gotta go eat dinner.
Hmmmpht The great huntress that doesn’t stop fur nuffin’ huh? Hey, wait fur me, me’s hungry too.
Stay in your own plate sissy. Ya’ know, I’s sure glad I’s don‘t have to hunt fur mine’s own food. That’s a lot of work. Fanky fankfully we’ve got a mommy that fixes our meals fur us. There are so many kitties out there that don’t have a mommy like we do. I’s so wish they all had their own furever homes full of luvs.
Yeah Raena, me too. Ya’ know, June is Adopt a Shelter Kitty month. Me sure hopes lots of kitties find their furevers. In the meantime, me can’t wait to see which shelter our furiends choose to receive their Cat Amazing Shelter kit. Don’t furget to visit our Blest Sunday posty to nominate your favorite U.S. shelter or rescue and enter to win a Cat Amazing fur yourself.
Let’s go eat sissy.

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. It’s gonna be one of those days. Mommy’s not yet finished her furst cup of coffee and she’s already yellin’ at her new smarty pants fone. I’s not sure who Okay Google is, but accordin’ to mommy she’s a bossy idiot.
RaenaBelle!!! Me thinks you’re usin’ the idiot word too much these days. It’s just not nice.
But sissy, that’s what mommy said. She told her she didn’t wanna go that way to the dentist this time, she wanted to go thru Ardmore. And all that Okay Google could say is “hmmmmm I don’t know how to help you with that.” Mommy’s been screamin’ at her to quit redirectin’ the directions to the quickest route. Ya’ know, mommy wants to take a safer route today, but she needs that silly fone fur directions. (Raena shakes her head)
Well Raena, ya’ know mommy’s eyes aren’t what they used to be and it’s hard fur her to see the writin’ on the maps. Me knows she was lookin’ at the atlas last night and mumblin’ ‘bout the tiny purrint and gettin’ old.
Well sissy, sounds like we need to learn how to read a map so we can give mommy directions.
Sure Raena, me will put that right up there with make mommy a cup of coffee. We kitties can’t read the map any more than mommy can. Besides, me heard mommy say that she’d just go to Ardmore and then ask the silly smarty pants fone fur directions.
Sounds like mommy’s outsmarted the smarty pants fone to me, sissy. I’s knew our mommy was smart. Meowin’ of dentists, fanky fankfully, we got our money back from Aspen Dental over the weekend so mommy can pay the new dentist today. I’s so glad we don’t have to deal with those peeps anymore.
Me too Raena. Mommy used to get so stressed befur her ‘pointments that she almost made herself sick. Meowin’ of ‘pointments, did you see the card me got from the V-E-T? They actually wanted me to tell mommy to call them to schedule a ‘pointment fur them to stab and manhandle me. Hmmmpht Like that’s gonna happen. What self respectin’ kitty in their right mind would willingly tell their human to take them to the V-E-T? Not this one me tells ya’. Nope, no way.
What are you lookin’ at? Don’t you be gettin’ any
ideas ’bout pokin’ me with that.
Well, good luck with that one sissy; I’s think mommy already saw the card. Besides, why would you think you could get outta goin’ when I’s had to go the day befur mine’s Gotchaday?
But Raena, you didn’t get poked and jabbed on your visit. They wanna do all kinds of unmeowable things to me. It’s just not fair, me tells ya’, not fair at all. Every year they think they oughtta jab me with their huge needles.
I’s feelin’ all better mommy, let’s go home.
Every year sissy? Does that mean I’s gonna have to go back too? They already tried to kill me the other day. I’s know they’re plannin’ and plottin’ mine’s demise. The kitties in the waitin’ room when we left told me so. Their names were Thelma and Louise. I’s told ‘em to run fur their lives when their carrier doors opened. I’s told ‘em not to stop fur the bonito flakes we left on the table. I’s sure hope they got out okay. They reminded me of your pawsum sis Lexi. They were big ol black tabby kitty girls…and I’s do mean big.
Really Raena? Me hopes they got away too. Ya’ know, we oughtta check fur some new hidin’ spots so mommy won’t be able to find us to take us to the ol stabby place. Me saw you watchin’ mommy drag stuffs outta the furbidden room (closet), did she make enuff room fur us to get in and hide?
It sure looks like fun in there mommy. Where’d you get all that stuffs?
I’s don’t think so sissy. Who knew mommy had that many clothes?. I’s never seen her wear any of ‘em befur?.
Yeah Raena, it’s been a while. Those are mommy’s dressy clothes that she only wears fur special occasions. She hasn’t had much cause to wear ‘em in quite some time. Me does ‘member a time when she’d shimmy and shake into somethin’ called panty hose and shapers and then pull out somethin’ really nice from the furbidden room. Since we go to church at home now, mommy says she doesn’t need to wear the hose and shapers anymore. Truth be told, me doesn’t think they’d fit. MOL
Ooooh Sissy, you better not let mommy hear you meow that. I’s think that might hurt her feelings.
Sometimes the truth hurts, Raena. You know mommy says we should always tell the truth, even ifin it’s not necessarily nice.
Uh, Mommy also says ifin ya’ can’t say somethin’ nice then don’t say anythin’ at all. I’s purretty sure implyin’ mommy’s fat would fall unner that category.
Fat? Me didn’t call mommy fat, you did and me’s tellin’. MOL You’re in trouble now. (Dezi runs to mommy laughing all the way)
(Raena runs after Dezi meowing) Wait!!! Sissy, I’s didn’t call mommy fat, you did. I’s can run faster than you. Besides, I’s the baby, who do you think mommy’s gonna believe? I’s gotta hurry and finish mine’s brekky so we can get ready to go to Tishomingo today. Fanky fankfully, it’s not s’posed to storm today. Maybe we can stop fur some special treats. Ifin you don’t tell mommy, I’s’ll bring you somethin’ back?.
Till the next time…………………………………………Be Blest!!!

MeOW C’mon RaenaBelle, it’s Blest Sunday. Me’s thinkin’ we might have to type our own posty today. Me doesn’t think me’s ever seen mommy this wiped out. Well, x’cept maybe that time she got so sick she could hardly function. Me keeps tellin’ her she’s gettin’ to old fur these all nighters. They’re fur the young and dumb, not the old and crazy.
That’s not nice, sissy. Mommy’s not crazy…much. But you’re right, she is wiped out. She spent all night Fursday and all of Furiday into Caturday meownin’ tryin’ to get things set up fur the garage sale. Only to find out there was no ads placed in any of the newspapers ‘round here. She couldn’t believe it. But since everythin’ was already out and she hadn’t slept, she decided to hope and purray that somepawdy would come by.
Yep Raena, and we did have a few customers. So, me guesses that’s a blessin’.
How would you know sissy, you spent the whole day hidin’ out?. Even when the sale was over and momnmy called fur ya’ still you hid out. What ifin mommy had really needed you?
Me wasn’t hidin’ Raena, me was just takin’ a nice long nap in the quietest place me could find. Could me help it ifin it was unner the table behind a bunch of stuff? Me knew mommy was fine, me could hear it in her voice. Besides, she had you. You sat at the front door actin’ like the welcomin’ committee. It’s so, so, it’s so embarrassin’ and un-cat-like. Dogs wait at the door waggin’ their tails waitin’ to hump anypawdy that walks up, not kitties. Kitties are s’posed to hiss and run fur cover, and only come out once we know the stranger isn’t a stranger. Sometimes me’s just wonders where you learned to be a cat at?.
Oh sissy, you don’t always run from peeps at the door. I’s learned everythin’ I’s know from you.
Don’t meow that, Raena. That’s why it’s so embarrassin’, cuz me knows you’re gonna blame it on me. Hmmmpht Anyways, how did it go at the V-E-T the other day? Cuz of the garage sale, we haven’t posted since last Wednesday. We even missed our Service Cat Furiday post. Mommy was so exhausted she couldn’t even help us write a posty.
Well sissy, I’s wasn’t none too happy bein’ there. It was stormin’ like crazy all that day. T’ween the radio and mommy’s new smarty pants fone, the beepin’ and screechin’ was horrible. Like we couldn’t see we were in the middle of a storm?. Hmmmpht Anyways, the V-E-T said the yellow and green goop wasn’t normal, but she told mommy to put regular saline drops in mine’s eyes 3 – 4 times a day fur a month. Ifin there’s still no change, we’d give those antibiotic/steroid drops a try fur a whole month ‘stead of just 2 weeks and hopefully knock out the infection once and fur all. Needless to meow, mommy’s not real purrleased with the V-E-T’s recommendations. She never really is. They did say that mine’s eyes didn’t appear to be in any danger of goin’ blind or nuffin’ like that. So, that’s ‘bout it, we came straight home cuz mommy knew you were home alone durin’ those nasty storms and she had lots to do fur the weekend.
Well, guess it’s good that you’re not gonna go blind, Raena. Ya’ know, Furiday was your 2nd Gotchaday, and well, we just had too much goin’ on to really celebrate. So, me and mommy are plannin’ a big bash fur ya’ on the last Tuesday of this month (6/26). All our furiends are invited. Anyways, we better wrap it up fur today and go and check on mommy. Despite the fact that our week didn’t go quite as planned, we’re still Blest. We have each other and all of you. We wouldn’t change that fur anythin’ in this world. As always, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and everyday to give thanks fur the Blessings in your lives.
Mommy’s lap, mine’s favorite place.
Good idea sissy. I’s just gonna link us up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and I’s’ll be right there.
Till the next time………………………………………..Be Blest!!!
