Blest Sunday: How Blessings Work

Dezi:  MeOW  Welcome, welcome, it’s Blest Sunday, and are we ever Blest. Yeah, yeah, me knows it’s been a ruff week what with Raena’s health mews, the continued storms outside and all the other things that have come our way. But, ya’ wanna know how Blessings work?

Me’s not meowin’ ‘bout that kind’a work Raena. Kittens!!! Sometimes, you’re so literal. Anyways, what me meant is that even bad things come with Blessings. Like, we hated hearin’ you have Entropion and gingivitis. But, we choose to see the Blessing, we furinally have answers and even better, it can be fixed. See, that’s how Blessings work. 

 

          I’s get it sissy. It’s lookin’ fur the good even tho’ what you might see furst is the bad. Ya’ know what else? I’s think you’ve been much nicer to me since you found out mine’s eyes be hurtin’. Y, You didn’t even hiss when I’s jumped on you this meownin’ at brekky.

Yeah well, don’t get used to it Raena. The minute you feel better, me’s gonna give you the whacky paw of instruction ifin you jump on me again. 

 

          Aaaaaaaaaw sissy, I’s know you don’t mean it. You know you luvs me.

 

Me does Raena, but haven’t you ever heard, spare the rod and spoil the child? Everypawdy needs a little discipline now and then. 

 

Animated thank you rose

 

          Whatever you meow sissy. I’s thought we were countin’ our Blessings, not meowin’ ‘bout rods and things spoilin’. I’s wanna say a meowsy big Fanky fank you to awnty Cindy, awnty Jeanne, awnty Sandra and awnty Juliea and Patzy fur the green papers to help me have the surgery I’s need. 

 

Thank You emoji

 

You’re right Raena, that’s a huge Blessing. And we’re so grateful. Me’s always told you that we have the bestest furiends in the universe. Meowin’ of, me’s wants to fank awnty Anonymous fur sendin’ me some green papers fur me’s Birthday. How’s the pawrty plannin’ goin’?  

 

 

Dezi's Venetian Carnival Birthday party invite

 

 

          It’s goin’ great sissy. Mommy’s helpin’ me and we made a little invite last night. I’s sure hope all our furiends send their masked fotos. I’s purromissed that we’d have a contest fur the bestest mask or costume. I’s think I’s might be just as x’cited ‘bout the pawrty as you are. Celebratin’ Birthdays and Gotchadays is celebratin’ the biggest Blessing a kitty or woofy can have.

You’re fur sure right ‘bout that Raena. The biggest Blessing in me’s life is mommy. Ya’ know, we need to wrap this up. Me’s got a jamboree to attend at Cat Scouts this week. But befur we go, we’d like to remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to Give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. There really is a Blessing inside every dark cloud, a rose among the thorns, sometimes we just have to look a little closer to see them. We’d also like to Fank you all fur bein’ Blessings in ours.

Chatting Cats: The Eyes Have It

Raena Goes To The V-E-T (Update)

Hey, Everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle!!! Hey sissy, we’re home!!! Hurry mommy, get mine’s harness off. I’s wanna go tell sissy ‘bout mine’s visit with doctor stabby and grabby. (Raena jumps down from the stroller and heads down the hallway looking for Dezi. She makes a quick potty box detour and then paces through the house meowing and looking for Dezi.) Sissy? Sissy, where are you? Sissy, come out, I’s wanna tell ya’ what happened. (Raena walks over and jumps in mommy A’s lap and looks at her and meows) Mommy? Why won’t sissy come out? Where is she? (Raena jumps down and paces through the house meowing more persistantly this time.) Sissy!!! Sissy, I’s need to tell ya’ somethin’!!! 

 

Dezi lays on cat tree with mouth open and eyes shut

 

 

          (Dezi strolls down the hall and jumps on the cat tree) What’s all the yeowlin’ ‘bout? Ya’ come in yeowlin’ and wakin’ me up from me’s rainy day nap. Kittens!!! Your meowin’ like the house is on fire or somethin’. 

 

Raena sits pretty for the camera

 

 

 

The house is on fire too sissy? What should we do? Are we trained fur fires?

 

          (Dezi slaps her paw to her forehead) No Raena, the house ain’t on fire, it’s just a sayin’. (Dezi shakes her head) Never mind. What’s so ‘purrtant you had to wake me up. You stink like… 

 

Raena sits in stroller at vetI’s scared mommy. I’s wanna cuddle.

 

 

 

Well sissy, let me tell ya’. When we got there, all I’s could hear was woofies barkin’ and squealin’. The things they were barkin’. I’s think they tried to kill one of ‘em. Bless his heart. Then, we were sittin’ there mindin’ our own business and in walks the biggest woofie I’s ever seen. He ran right over and got all up in mine’s business. His human ‘pawrently believes like the peeps out here, like the law doesn’t apply to them. Cuz he didn’t even have on a collar much less a leash. He could’a eaten me alive befur his human could’a done anythin’. Hmmmpht What is it with those peeps? 

 

          Me doesn’t know Raena. But you’re so right. Every time me’s had to go see doctor stabby and grabby me’s almost been accosted. 

 

I’s can tell ya’, I’s would’a gone down whacky pawin’ cuz he would’a hurt mommy too since I’s was in her arms at the time. 

 

          Sure sounds like ya’ll were in the waitin’ room fur a long time Raena. Did you ever get into a room? 

 

Raena and mommy A at the vetYou always make me feel safe, mommy.

 

 

 

We were sissy. They weighed me when we walked in the door, but we had to wait fur elebenty billion 30 minutes befur we ever got a room of our own. Didn’t take long fur doctor stabby and grabby to show up then. He kept shinin’ a light in mines eyes and it hurted. Mommy’s a little bit furious, but she says that after 2 1/2 years of takin’ me in and complainin’ ‘bout mine’s eye issue, we furinally have an answer to what’s wrong. I’s hate that it made mommy cry tho’. She said she felt just horrible that I’s been in pain every day of mine’s life and she didn’t do more to find an answer sooner. I’s told her she shouldn’t feel bad, she did the bestest she could. 

 

          Well what’s wrong with ya’, Raena?  

 

Raena looks up at mommy while snuggling close at the vet Can we leave mommy? I’s don’t wanna wait fur doctor stabby and grabby.

 

 

 

Well sissy, I’s can’t say all the big words, so I’s told mommy that I’s would s’plain it kind’a like doctor stabby and grabby did and once we got the plan of action estimate, she could tell everypawdy. See, mine’s bottom eyelids turn in some. And there’s these tiny little fur hairs attached to ‘em that are s’posed to purrtect our eyes from stuffs flyin’ in ‘em. Cuz mine’s are turned in, those tiny little fur hairs are constantly scratchin’ and irritatin’ mines eyes. So, they’re constantly irritated and that’s why they’re always gunky and I’s sometimes close ‘em up and can’t see anythin’. 

 

          Oh Raena, me’s sorry. Me didn’t know. 

 

Raena looks down while snuggling with mommy at vetMaybe ifin I’s pout, mommy’ll take me home.

 

 

 

It’s okay sissy, nopawdy did and I’s couldn’t s’plain it. 

 

          So, now that they’ve figgered out what the purroblem is Raena, what are they gonna do ‘bout it?  

 

Raena sits on table at vetSurgery?!! I’s don’t wanna have surgery!!! I’s fur sure don’t want

your hands in mine’s mouth.

 

 

 

 

Well sissy, I’s gonna have to have laser surgery to make mine’s eyelids turn out right like they’re s’posed too. And, it seems I’s might have some gum issues too, so while I’s out of it fur mine’s eye surgery, doctor stabby and grabby’s gonna clean mine’s teethies and see what’s goin’ on in mine’s mouth. He said they’re gonna shave all the furs off mine’s eyes. Ifin I’s bein’ honest, I’s a little bit scared sissy. 

 

          Me is too Raena. Are they gonna make you stay in the hospital? 

 

Raena lays on the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

Nope sissy. Fanky fankfully fur mommy. She told ‘em she wasn’t leavin’ mine’s side at all. Doctor stabby and grabby said that was fine and then mumbled somethin’ ‘bout hopin’ the insurance covered it. Anyways, I’s’ll be comin’ home that afternoon. We have to be there at 6:30 the meownin’ of November 15th. So, I’s gonna have to plan your pawrty fur a time befur that.

 

          So you already have the ‘pointment huh Raena? 

 

Yep sissy. Seems once doctor stabby and grabby figgered out what’s wrong with me, it’s suddenly urgent that I’s have mine’s purrcedure. Altho’, mommy said she wishes we could do it tomorrow. She really feels bad that I’s been hurtin’ fur so long and she didn’t fix it. It’s gonna cost a couple hunnerd dollars. I’s don’t know where we’re gonna get it from, but I’s sure hope we do. I’s can’t even ‘magine mine’s eyes not hurtin’. That’s gonna be so pawsum. 

 

          Well Raena, we’ll have to ask our furiends ifin they’ll help us help you. Ifin not, maybe me can sell a kidney or somethin’. Guess we’ll have to post the estimate as soon as doctor stabby and grabby sends it to us.

 

Yeah sissy, he was too busy when we were there to write it up; doctor stabby and grabby two had the day off. But he purromissed to get it to us in a day or two. Fanky fankfully, he’s runnin’ a special on dentals right now and we do get a Service Cat discount. Mommy said t’ween your last ‘pointment and mine’s visit we’re already at our hunnerd dollar credit limit with him. So we have to pay fur mine’s purrcedure the day I’s have it done. Ifin anypawdy can help me get mine’s eyes fixed, you can donate to our paypal address at: lexi.dezi@yahoo.com. Or you can donate directly to doctor stabby and grabby’s office: Carter County Animal Hospital, Ardmore OK. (580)226-1001 (Dr. Cade Wilson). Our account is unner mommy’s name: Audra High. I’s sure would ‘purreciate it. And I’s could use your purrayers too.  

 

Dezi bows her head to pray

 

 

 

          Me will purray fur you Raena. Me wants you to be all better too. Who knows, that might have somethin’ to do with why you’re such a pest. Who knows what you’re gonna be like when you’re no longer in constant pain.

 

Raena sits on cat tree with her carnival mask onI’s tryin’ on masks fur sissy’s pawrty.

 

 

 

Well sissy, I’s thinkin’ we should have your Carnival Birthday/Gotchaday pawrty on Wednesday November 14th. There’s still time to put on your mask and send (email to: lexi.dezi@yahoo.com) us your foto to be included in the festivities. Ifin you’re havin’ trouble findin’ a mask, let us know. We want all our furiends to attend, so we’ll help ya’ any way we can.

 

          (Hours pass and find Raena sleeping off the day. This morning, Raena’s feeling lethargic and didn’t get up to eat breakfast. Dezi worriedly paces from the bedroom to the living room again and again, searching for Raena.) RaenaBelle? C’mon, get up, it’s time fur brekky. Me will let you jump on me as many times as you want. Just get up Raena, it’s time. 

 

(Raena opens her eyes, but doesn’t lift her head) I’s will sissy, just let me finish mine’s nap. 

 

          Purrlease keep Raena in your purrayers.

Tell All Tuesday: Keeping The Gut Healthy #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s comin’ to ya’ live from the new swamp lands of Oklahoma. Just kitten. MOL  Altho’ there’s some floodin’ goin’ on, we’re not swampy…least not yet. And the better news is that sissy, has been hangin’ out with me and mommy ‘stead of hidin’ huntin’  UTB. 

 

 

Dezi lays atop the liberty cat tree while Raena scratches her neck on the ledge below

 

 

 

          Me sure has Raena. Altho’, me’s thinkin’ you might wanna do some hidin’ UTB today. Me heard mommy say somethin’ ‘bout it bein’ your turn to go to the V-E-T. 

 

 

Raena sits on the table at the Vet's office

 

 

 

What are you meowin’ ‘bout sissy? I’s done went to the V-E-T this year. Don’t you ‘member? Mommy took me in cuz me’s eyes were all gunky. 

 

 

          Yeah, well, you didn’t get stabbed at that ‘pointment, did ya’? Cuz that’s the kind of ‘pointment you have today. Our State requires that we get a rabies shot every year or three, and your time’s up. 

 

Nooooooo!!! I’s don’t wanna go get stabbed and jabbed. Furiends, come save me, purrlease!!! 

 

Chewy Logo

 

          Hmmmmpht  Me doesn’t think anypawdy can save ya’ from this Raena. Befur ya’ go, let’s meow ‘bout the Fortiflora we got from Chewy this month. Ya’ know when mommy changed us over to raw food she started addin’ ProBiotics to our meals to help with keepin’ our guts healthy. But befur that, mommy added Fortiflora to me’s meals to help me switch from kibble to raw. See, peeps seem to think that it tastes like kibble and will fool us kitties. Me wasn’t fooled. Nope not fur even a minute. But hey, it tasted purretty good, so me obliged mommy and ate me’s new noms.

 

Fortiflora Probiotics

 

 

 

Really sissy? Is that what kibble tastes like? I’s never had kibble befur. Let’s see what Chewy has to say ‘bout it.

Mommy says it kind’a looks like blood when ya’ dissolve it in water. It’s a really fine brownish powder that gets sprinkled over a kitty or doggy’s noms.

 

Dezi sniffs the box of Fortiflora

 

 

 

          Me’s not so sure it makes us want to eat more, but it doesn’t make us turn our noses up at dinner either. It’s made by Purina and comes in 2 different sizes, 1) 30 count box or 6) 30 count boxes and costs $27.99 to $167.94. Accordin’ to the directions, kitty should get 1 whole packet daily. Mommy usually divides the packets t’ween us and our meals. We get a little over each meal. Me likes it just fine and gives it 3 paws up.  What ‘bout you Raena? 

 

Dezi and Raena eat out of their new dishes

 

 

 

It’s okay sissy. I’s give it a couple paws up too. Mommy says it’s a bit on the ‘spensive side considerin’ it’s only a 30 day supply fur one kitty. That means ifin ya’ give it as directed, it’s almost a dollar a day on top of the cost of kitties noms. So, mommy gives it one thumb up. As always, we give Chewy all paws and thumbs up. They have purroducts fur the whole family and offur speedy furee shippin’ on all orders $49.00 and up; as well as speedy flat rate shippin’ on all other orders. And, their customer service peeps are just pawsum and available 24/7. You can even set up an autoship so you never run out of your pet’s favorites and save an additional 5% on most everythin’.

Chewy nor Purina are responsible for the opinions expressed unless otherwise stated. We only bring you products we use or have tried and believe would be of interest to you, our readers and furiends.

 

          You never have to worry ‘bout those autoships, isn’t that right Raena? You can always skip, cancel or delay up to 24 hours prior to shipment. And Chewy has the bestest boxes ever. With Christmas right ‘round the corner, you know you oughtta check ‘em out. Me hopes mommy adds a little birthday surprise to our next autoship fur me. 

 

And me too sissy. I’s wanna surprise too. 

 

Dezi and Raena bather atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          ‘Course you do Raena, but it’s not your birthday, it’s me’s time. Meowin’ of special surprises, ‘member that Cat Amazing puzzle toy? Well, Andrey’s gone back to the drawin’ board and has created one called the Epic. Check it out the kickstarter campaign right now. Y, me even bets it’ll be available at Chewy in no time.
