(Mommy serves breakfast and notices Raena’s not any where to be seen. As Dezi starts eating, Mommy calls for Raena, who comes running full speed and jumps over the chair and mommy’s shoulder to find her plate of noms)
Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle.
(Looking up from her breakfast plate, Dezi meows)
Raena, ya’ don’t have to ask that every time.
I’s do too sissy. What with mommy not feelin’ so good this week, we haven’t gotten to visit our furiends much and they might have furgotten ‘bout us.
Me doesn’t think they could ever furget you, Raena.
Aaaaaaaaaw Fanky fank ya’ sissy…I’s think?.
Did you purractice any of your Irish Raena?
Not really sissy. I’s did learn ‘bout leprechauns, rainbows and pots o’ gold tho’. We need to ketch us a leprechaun and force him to give us his pot o’ gold. Can you ‘magine what we could do with all that money?
(Dezi rolls her eyes)
Oh Raena…Anyways, we need to tell everypawdy ‘bout the Taste of Wild canned noms we got to try this month.

The Taste of the Wild comes in 2 formulas fur us kitties, The Rocky Mountain that we tried and the Canyon River with trout and salmon. As you can see by the ingredient list, salmon is the number 1 ingredient. However, the food doesn’t have a strong fishy smell. The can states the contents are bites in gravy. Mommy says when she opened the can she didn’t see any of that gravy the can stated. But she does add water or broth to most everything we eat, so she was able to thin out the little bit of “gravy” and make some. She could visually see 3 peas and 1 carrot piece in the food. She says she was a little surprised to see the carrot as it’s not listed as an ingredient. That bein’ said, there aren’t any of those questionable ingredients in this food. It is grain free, and the can states “new great taste, pets will love”. So, let’s take a look at the taste testin’.
I’s took a good sniff and then another. I’s went in fur the bite and noticed mommy had furgot to remove the pea from mine’s servin’. I’s meowed a complaint and mommy removed said pea and offered the plate to me again. I’s took another sniff and stuck mine’s tongue out. And then I looked back at mommy and began to try to cover up the plate. Mommy hollered fur me to quit puttin’ our toys in the food. But hey, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do, right? Right. Sissy? Ya’ wanna tell everypawdy what you thought?
Fanks Raena. Me too had a few sniffs and even licked the gravy once. And then me walked away. Taste of the Wild has great ingredients, so me has to give it at least 1 paw up fur that. Just cuz we don’t like it doesn’t mean all kitties won’t. Fur sure ifin you (your kitty) likes fish, and morsels ‘stead of pate’, ya’ (they) might just luv this.
I’s’ll just cover this up here. Looks like mommy furgot da pea again.
Fanky fank ya’ sissy. You’re so right. Us kitties can be finicky, but we know quite a few that would just luv the Taste of the Wild. And cuz of that, I’s give ‘em a paw up too. There’s somethin’ else we’d like to point out. Mommy hates it when she’s lookin’ fur a new food and there’s no foto of the actual contents of the can or bag. We know this bothers other pet pawrents too, so we always try to take a foto of the contents so you’ll know ahead of time, what you’re gettin’. Ya’ know what else? They also have noms fur the doggies.
Chewy carries lots of great purroducts fur the furry, feathered and scaled members of your family. Speedy free shipping on all orders of $49.00 and over and speedy flat rate shipping fur all other orders. They offur a convenient auto ship program that you can skip, cancel or delay at any time.

And don’t furget the Pet Parade with Rascal, Rocco and their amazin’ co hosts, Raena. It is the weekend. And we also wanna wish everypawdy a Happy St. Patrick’s day.
Fanky fanks, sissy. It’s s’posed to warm up this weekend. Hopefully, mommy will feel up to takin’ us fur a stroll or two. We hope you all have a pawsum weekend.

Top o the meownin’ to ya’. Me’s been to kiss the blarney stone.
What are you meowin’ ‘bout sissy? I’s thought we were s’posed to be writin’ our Chewy review today.
We are lass, but we’re also celebratin’ our Irish heritage.
I’s know you’re smart sissy, but I’s don’t think we’ve got any Irish heritage.
Sure we do Raena. Some of mommy’s ancestors left the green isle and traveled across the big pond to come to America. And even ifin they hadn’t, everypawdy is a bit Irish on St. Paddy’s day.
But that ain’t till Furiday, sissy. I’s already got me a hat and everythin’.
Me knows Raena, me’s just gettin’ a buntaiste.
A head start Raena. Kittens!!! A head start.
Well why didn’t ya’ just say that?

Never mind Raena, you’re just rainin’ on me’s whale of a time. Anyways, we do have a great purroduct to tell everypawdy ‘bout today. We received the Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Freeze Dried Mixers/Toppers in Rabbit. They come in a 6 ounce bag and cost $9.04. The little nuggets have a cylindrical shape and are fairly hard fur a freeze dried food. Altho’ mommy says she can still easily break them up, or cut them up. ‘Member, we like really small bites. Now, let’s see what Chewy lists as the Key benefits:
A great all natural, freeze-dried topper that’s grain-free and makes any kibble irresistible
Made of high quality, raw nutrition in a convenient and easy-to-serve form
Pure protein freeze-dried protein aids in lean muscle development
Natural ingredients with no artificial colors or preservatives provide optimal nutrient absorption
Nutritious oils and essential fatty acids give your furry friend healthy skin and coat
Rabbit, Pork Liver, Pork Heart, Pumpkinseeds, Carrots, Apples, Butternut Squash, Ground Flaxseed, Montmorillonite Clay, Dried Kelp, Broccoli, Mixed Tocopherols, Apple Cider Vinegar, Salmon Oil, Rosemary Extract, Blueberries, Dried Chicory Root.
3,697 kcal/kg, 1.4 kcal/piece
The ingredient list is purretty simple and doesn’t contain any of the questionalbe ingredients our humans worry ‘bout.
That’s right Raena. Now we’ve covered the ingredient Montmorillomite clay befur, but we’ll just say that among it’s other benefits, it works as a great detoxifier in pet foods by helping to bind with and remove toxins from our bodies. And a little known fact ‘bout pumpkin seeds, is that they can be used as a natural wormer. Now we know that’s not the purrpuss of them in this purrticular food, but we did wanna throw that out there. In other words, mommy’s purretty happy with the ingredient deck of the Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Mixers.
Can we get to the taste testin’ now sissy? And I’s not want the green ones either. Cuz I’s really like that wascally wabbit. They taste great right outta the bag as a treat. And I’s also enjoyed them over mine’s noms with added water. I’s give the Nature’s Variety Freeze dried Rabbit 4 paws up.
Fanks Raena. They’re not really green, as you can see in the foto above and below. Me likes them too. They don’t reconstitute as quickly or as well as some other freeze dried foods, but they are mighty tasty. Me gives them 4 paws up too. They’re also available in chicken and fur doggies. Mommy likes that we like them and as me said befur, she luvs the ingredient list.
Chewy has lots of great purroducts to meet the needs of all your furry, feathered and scaled furiends. You can set up an auto ship and save an additional 5% on most items. Don’t worry, you can always, skip, cancel, delay or edit each shipment. And Chewy’s great ‘bout sendin’ out a reminder in purrlenty of time to do just that. As always, shippin’ is speedy and free fur all orders $49.00 or more and a flat rate of 4.95 fur all other orders. You can shop with confidence; mommy says Chewy has the bestest customer service ‘round.
We’re gonna wrap it up now and finish our brekky. Me wanted to leave you all with this Irish blessing, May your troubles be less and your blessings be more. And nothing but happiness come through your door.
Till the next time………………………………………….Be Blest!!!

Meow Well, this month has just gotten away from us. Are you all feelin’ like that too? Since mommy had kinked up her neck and couldn’t hardly function, we kinda gave her yesfurday off. We tried visitin’ a few of ya’ but mommy just couldn’t really type well and since we still don’t have those opposable thumbs, we agreed to let her rest and give her extra massages and luvvin’. So today we need to do some business. We’re purroud to be Chewy Influencers and luv tryin’ out new and even old things to tell you all ‘bout. We’ve got somethin’ today, we know a lot of ya’ll are gonna luv.
Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post. We received compensation for our honest review of the Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings. Unless otherwise noted, all opinions are our own. We only bring you products we use or have tried and feel would be of interest to you our readers and friends.
Mommy is always on the look out fur a high quality, good fur us wet food to supplement our meals. So when we saw the Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings Savory mousse this month, we couldn’t wait to give ‘em a try. You know we’ve heard this food refurred to as “kitty crack”. In a good way of course. That simply means that kitties everywhere luv it. So mommy headed over to take a look at the proteins bein’ offured. Now me must purrface this by meowin’ that mommy’s eye sight isn’t the bestest. Most of ya’ know this, cuz we sometimes complain ‘bout the black and white fotos, or smaller purrint. Mommy has trouble makin’ out the shapes without the contrast of color, and the small purrint kinda runs together. So, when she furst looked at the the name on these Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings, the word “mousse” appeared to mommy’s old eyes as “mouse”. (shakes head) Oh me’s poor mommy. MOL
Sur-purrisingly, mommy was a little on the happy side ‘bout that. Her eyes then focused and she realized that wasn’t mouse at all, but indeed, mousse. The Purrfect Pairings come in 6 different flavors and are a whipped mixture with goat milk to make that mousse texture. Much to mommy’s chagrin, all 6 flavors contain Tuna Fish. As you know, we don’t get much fish here, but mommy decided as a little treat every once in a while, this would be okay. Since tuna was in all the flavors, mommy decided to go all out and we got the Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings Savory Mousse with Tuna and Goat Milk Grain Free Cat Food Cups, 2.75 ounce. They come 6 to a case fur $8.34 and are also gluten free. Let’s see what Chewy says ‘bout these delectable treats.
A holistic grain and gluten free food for cats and kittens of all life stages
Unique flavor combo of real tuna and goat milk
Picky cats will love the light mousse texture
Goat milk provides a highly palatable, easily digestible source of essential nutrients
Each Purrfect Pairings Mousse contains 78% moisture, making it a great dietary source of water
Tuna, Water Sufficient for Processing, Potato, Chicken Fat, Goat Milk, Modified Tapioca Starch, Salt, Pea Protein, Tricalcium Phosphate, Dried Egg Product, Guar Gum, Sodium Bicarbonate, Magnesium Sulfate, Choline Chloride, Iron Glycine Complex, Zinc Glycine Complex, Potassium Chloride, Taurine, Manganese Glycine Complex, Vitamin E Supplement, Copper Glycine Complex, Niacin Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate, Sodium Selenite, Vitamin A Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Calcium Pantothenate, Riboflavin Supplement, Biotin Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid, Potassium Iodide, Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex (Vitamin K3).

Can you believe mommy’s never had a mousse? Well, she hasn’t, so she didn’t really know what texture this food would be till she opened the cup. Mommy decided to offur Raena and me a half cup each fur our mid afternoon snack. Mid afternoon snack is code fur Treat Time, that we usually eat on the cat tree and without plates. So to say we weren’t quite sure what to do with this “treat” is puttin’ it mildly. Uh, Where’s the freeze dried bits mommy? That was the question Raena and me were askin’ when we looked at our plates. So, mommy took the plates away and decided to offur it as a meal instead.
Dinner time rolled ‘round and again, mommy offured Raena and me a half cup each. Sayin’ me is picky, is an understatement. Me’s down right Finicky with a capital F. Ifin me doesn’t like the look, smell, or anythin’ else ‘bout somethin’, me doesn’t even want it near me. Mommy watched carefully with camera in hand, as me smelled the plate of tuna mousse. Me looked up at her and walked away. Mommy purromptly retrieved me and offurred me a bite from a spoon. Mommy thought the texture looked similar to baby food or a butter spoon mixture and that me might lick said spoon and learn how tasty this plate of tuna is. Yeah, NO. Me wasn’t havin’ it. Did she think me walkin’ away was an invitation to shove somethin’ in me’s mouth? Well, it wasn’t. Mommy relented and fixed me a purropurr plate and focused on Raena.
She sure did sissy. That old flashy box was purractically in mines face. Nonetheless, I’s investigated that whipped dollop on mines plate. Furst I’s went in fur the smell. Then I’s tried to cover it up. Mommy removed the toys from mines plate and put me in front of it yet again. I’s looked at her and then you and down at the plate again. I’s took another sniff and then went in fur the lick. Yep, a lick not a bite. There wasn’t anythin’ on that plate to bite. The Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings are lighter than a typical pate’. A mousse incor-purrates air bubbles to make the texture light and airy. That certainly explains the texture of these Purrfect Pairings.
I licked several more times befur abandoning mines plate. Mommy says I’s looked a bit confused like I’s wasn’t sure ifin I’s had gotten anythin’ to eat or not. I’s did go back to the plate fur a few more licks and then I’s just moved on to sis Dezi’s plate fur a more substantial bite of food. I’s just not that fancy of a kitty. Give me a plate of solid bites instead of a plate of air. I’s know lots of kitties luv pate’ type foods and even more like tuna. So I’s would meow that you’d purrobably luvs this food. Fur that reason and the fact that there aren’t any of those questionable ingredients, I’s’ll give the Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings 2 paw up.
Fanks Raena. Me agrees, 2 paws up from me as well. The Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings are grain free, gluten free and don’t contain a list of questionable ingredients, so they’re fur sure on the list of good foods that be good fur ya’. No kitty likes everythin’, so just cuz this didn’t tickle me’s fancy doesn’t mean lots of you won’t like it. Ifin ya’ give it a try, let us know what you think. Me can think of several of ya’ right now that would luv these Purrfect Pairings. Mommy said she was disappointed that every flavor contained tuna, but that seemed to be prevalent in a lot of the foods from Solid Gold.
As always, Chewy has the bestest boxes ‘round. And there customer service team can’t be beat, in our opinion. Chewy.com offurs lots of great purroducts fur all the furry and non furred members of your pet family. Chewy also offurs speedy free shipping on all orders of $49.00 and more and a speedy flat rate on all orders under $49.00.

Just a little note ‘bout that, Chewy always sends out a reminder email shortly befur your auto-ship ships so you can make any changes you might need too. You can always shop Chewy.com with confidence. And don’t furget the boxes…a free kitty toy with every shipment. MOL
Me’s gonna wrap it up now and try to get mommy to help us visit our friends. Don’t furget to check out the Chewy blog hop fur other pawsum reviews. We hope you all have a pawsum week.
Do you (your kitty) prefer pate’ or bites?

Meow Welcome everypawdy. Do you suffer from achy joints? Is old man Arfur-Itis visitin’ ya’ more and more? Do ya’ have a few extra pounds ya’ just can’t seem to get rid of bearin’ down on your spindly legs? Do ya’ look at the top of the cat tree with longin’ and settle fur a lower shelf? Has your got us and go, got up and went? Well, ifin ya’ said yes to any of those questions, we might have just the thing fur ya’. Bein’ purroud Chewy Influencers, we get to try pawsum purroducts every month and tell you all ‘bout them. Today, we’re gonna tell ya’ ‘bout a great joint health supplement, Cosequin.
Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post. We received compensation in exchange for our honest opinions. Chewy, nor Nutramax are responsible for the content of this post unless otherwise stated. As always, we only bring products we use or have tried and feel would be of interest to you, our friends and readers.
Me is a 7 year old 30 – 35 pound Ragdoll Service Cat. Now me’s not overweight; we Ragdolls are just normally large kitties. There are other breeds that be rather large as well. Thing is, even tho’ we’re not overweight, we’re still luggin’ all that weight around with every jump up or down, climb or zoomy we make. That has an affect on our joints over time, and we might start feelin’ it a little earlier than some of the smaller breeds. But let me tell ya’, doesn’t matter your size, breed, or species, old man Arfur-Itis comes to visit all of us at some time or another, just ask mommy.
Us kitties are notorious fur hidin’ our pains. So what do you do as our human caretaker? Well, ya’ keep an eye out fur those tell tail tale signs: a small limp, not as many zoomies, lower/slower jumps, less play and all ‘round activity and/or more naps. Ifin ya’ see any of these signs, kitty/doggy just might be sufferin’ from old man Arfur-Itis visits’. Of course you should check with your VET anytime you suspect there’s a purroblem. It’s confurmed, you’re beloved anipal is sufferin’ from achy joints and you want to give them somethin’ to ease that pain.
Glucosamine and Chondroitin have been acknowledged by the medical community as bein’ helpful fur those achy joints. Nutramax has several formulas available fur both kitties and doggies. We tried out the Cosequin joint health supplement for cats. We received a box of 30 capsules which cost $8.96. These capsules are intended to be opened and sprinkled on our food. Me will tell ya’ that mommy’s initial reaction was not pleasant. So much of Feline medicine is based on what works fur Canines. Most doggies will eat anything no matter how bad it tastes. Us kitties…Not so much. And ifin you ever taint our favorite noms with medicine? Yeah, we’re not eatin’ that again. MOL Let’s take a look at what Chewy says ‘bout the Nutramax Cosequin Supplement fur Cats.
#1 vet recommended formula provides powerful joint support
With a blend of manganese, glucosamine and chondroitin
Recommended by veterinarians to support bladder health, a major concern for cats
These capsules can be broken apart and sprinkled on or mixed with your cat’s favorite wet food
Helps maintain healthy joints to keep your furry friend happy and healthy
Now what’s contained inside those capsules:
Glucosamine Hydrochloride, Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate, Manganese. Other Ingredients: Gelatin, Natural Flavor, Water, Magnesium Stearate, Titanium Dioxide(Color), FD&C Red #3, And FD&C Blue#1.
Now let me break down those active ingredients fur ya’. Each capsule contains a minimum of 1mg of Manganese, 125mg Glucosamine Hydrochloride and 100mg of Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate. Dosage size is based on the size of the animal. Fur me, it takes 2 capsules a day; 10 pounds and under would be 1 capsule. That means the 30 capsules we received would last ‘bout 2 weeks. The box claims it will take ‘tween 4 – 6 weeks to see results. And once the desired response has been achieved the dosage can be cut back to every other day fur maintenance. You may increase the dosage as needed.
Now, let’s get to the testin’. Against mommy’s better judgment, she opened said capsule and started sprinkling on me’s food. She soon realized that like most “sprinkle/mix on food” supplements me would have more medicine than food, and that was only one capsule. So mommy stopped adding after ‘bout a third of the capsule. Then, she gave it to me to eat. Yeah, No. Me wasn’t havin’ any of that. Me instead, stole sis Raena’s food and mommy had to make her another plate. Mommy really wants to make sure me’s joints are healthy, so fur the next dose, mommy mixed me up a little “Butter Spoon”. Mommy offen hides nasty medicine in a dab of butter. Most kitties will gladly lick a “Butter Spoon” clean. So it was no surprise when me licked up that “tainted” butter like it was the last butter on earth.
So me would rate the Cosequin two paws up. Me didn’t take it long enuff to really see any results, so we can’t speak to that, but me did gladly take each “Butter Spoon” dose fur the next 14 days. Ifin you have a really finicky kitty, we definitely suggest you NOT add this supplement to their food, but rather find another medium to administer it, such as butter, baby food, olive oil, maybe a treat pocket or the likes. Raena’s not yet a year old, so she didn’t try the Cosequin at all, but she did have a blast with the box. Cuz mommy was able to get me to take the medicine, she gives it a thumb up. We’ve heard great things ‘bout Cosequin and feel it might actually work ifin you take it as directed.
As me said earlier, Nutramax does make several formulas and sizes. Fur our pawcket book this would get a little pricey over time. But you all know, mommy would do whatever she could to make sure we kitties have what we need. So all in all, we would recommend the Nutramax Cosequin joint supplement fur Cats or Dogs.
As always, we fank Chewy.com fur allowin’ us to try a great purroduct. You all know we luv our Chewy boxes and shop there regularly. We have noms, litter and supplements on auto-ship, so we don’t have to worry ‘bout runnin’ out. And when we get blest with gifts of noms or litter, mommy can go in and skip, cancel or delay any auto-ship we have. Chewy also offurs speedy free shippin’ on all orders of $49.00 and over and a speedy flat rate fur all other orders. They also carry just ‘bout everythin’ you might need fur all the anipals in your household so be sure to check ‘em out. And Chewy has the bestest Customer Service ‘round as far as we’re concerned. So don’t worry, you can shop with confidence. And don’t furget the pawsum boxes and packin’ paper. Ya’ get a great toy with every shipment. MOL
Me’s gonna wrap it up now and see ‘bout playin’ a while. Don’t furget to check the Chewy blog Hop fur other great purroduct reviews. Ya’ll have a great week.

(Dezi jumps up on mommy’s lap and Raena follows suit.)
Hey Raena, me was here furst.
I’s want some luvvin’ too sissy.
Wait your turn. Me’s here now and me’s gonna write me’s Blogoversary posty.
Well sissy, mommy says it’s our Blogoversary.
Well it’s got me’s name on it, and besides, you haven’t even been here a year yet. Me’s bloggy is 3 years old. That’s 2 years longer than you’ve even been alive.
I’s gonna tell mommy that you’re bein’ mean to me.
Oh purrlease. Don’t be so whiney. Anyways…A lot of ya’ have heard the story of how we got started, but we do have some new followers that haven’t. So, we thought we’d give ya’ a little history behind Deziz World. We were all new to the world of computers and the internet. Mommy was terrified of the online world, so while taking a class, she set up our Facebook account under sis Lexi and me’s name. Not long after she learned ‘bout Facebook pages and created one fur sis Lexi so we could share the idea of Service Cats with the world. Sissy told a story almost every night back then. It was a lot of work fur mommy, but we started makin’ some pawsum furiends and found a whole community of cats and their peeps.
So her name’s furst and her birthday’s on our account.
Soon after, one of those cats, Timmy Tomcat, asked ifin anypawdy would be innerested in guest bloggin’ at Blue’s Lounge. We had no clue what bloggin’ was, but mommy said me could do it since sissy had a Facebook page. Uncle Pete and Timmy, told us to create an account on WordPress that we would use to post from. Mommy bein’ catputer illiterate, created our account and answered each question as bestest she could. Befur we knew it, DezizWorld was created. Mommy was so confused and couldn’t even find Blue’s Lounge. She had no idea she had created our very own bloggy. We wrote to uncle Pete and Timmy and ‘splained what we thought we did, and he said, we now had our own bloggy that we could post on. ‘Member when we said we didn’t know what bloggin’ was? Well, here’s our very furst posty. Yep, we’ve come a long way since then. We wrote a total of 8 postys our furst month. We told the stories of how and when we came to live with mommy.
We didn’t even know how to comment on other blogs back then. We visited quite a few everyday, but had no way of commentin’. And then one day, the light bulb went off in mommy’s head and she figured it out. Of course, Timmy’s bloggy was the furst bloggy we commented on. We became Timmy stalkers really. MOL Now we’re great furiends and feel so blest to have Timmy and his furmily in our lives.
da virtual world in Cat Scouts.
Oh, me has to tell you a really funny story. Somehow, we had started following Sammy from the then One Spoiled Cat. At that time, he was postin’ ‘bout a “virtual” trip to outer space. ‘Course he never said anythin’ ‘bout it bein’ virtual. And every day we would get these emails ‘bout space ships with photos of kitties on human bodies dressed in space suits. Mommy was all like, “Who would let their beloved kitty go to outer space?” “What cat would even wear those space helmets?” “My cats are Service Cats, I couldn’t live without them that long.” (shakes head) Oh me’s dear sweet mommy. Turns out it was a virtual adventure Sammy was headin’ up fur his fellow Cat Scouts and bloggin’ buddies. And awnty Pam and Sam? They turned out to be great furiends and lots of help when it came to unnerstandin’ this bloggin’ thing. Me’s now taken several of those “virtual” trips meself. Me hasn’t been to outer space, but ya’ never know what the future holds.
Me followed Timmy to Cat Scouts, and sis Lexi and me joined The Tabby Cat Club. And all the while we kept meetin’ more and more pawsum peeps and their anipals. We’ve made so many amazin’ furiends and have been blest to overflowin’ by your luv and support. Brian and his furmily were so gracious and sponsored our furst trip to BlogPaws. It was sooooooo amazin’ and we met so many of our pawsum furiends in the flesh and fur. We were innerviewed fur the Mousebreath Magazine by those crazy funny farmers over at Jan’s Funny Farm. We’ve since been featured on a few other blogs and have a few features comin’ up soon. We’ve joined the Chewy.com Influencer group and received and reviewed a lot of pawsum purroducts. And there’s many more reviews in our future.
A lot of you were here when sis Lexi was diagnosed with CKD and mommy went in search of the best way to manage it. And more of you were here when sissy had to leave us fur her final journey to heaven. More of you joined us when me’s new sisfur and Service Cat in Training, RaenaBelle joined us. And still more when we innerduced our Service Cat Monday Series this past year. Deziz World the blog is always growin’ and evolving just like we are. We so hope you all stay with us as we continue to learn and grow. We hope to continue to bring you blessings, smiles, laughter, and a little education along the way. Ifin there’s somethin’ you would like to see, let us know. Ifin it’s within’ our power, we’ll try to do it.
Fank you all fur bein’ here and bein’ our furiends. We never could have ‘magined all the blessings we would receive when we started on this journey 3 years ago. And even tho’ there’s been purrlenty of sad along the way, we wouldn’t change a thing. Blessings abound each and every day. You just have to stop and see them. Sometimes they’re the very things we take fur granted, such as breathing, and the flowers that bloom in spring, and even sometimes those amazin’ furiends. So ‘member to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your life. And don’t furget to tell your furiends what they mean to ya’ every once in a while. You never know what somepawdy might be goin’ thru and just how much your kind words might mean to them. Fank you fur takin’ this walk down memory lane and little glimpse into the future with us.
Till the next time……………………………………..Be Blest!!!
