Meowllo everypawdy and a happy Blest Sunday. Sure hope yous enjoyed seein’ sissy play yesfurday. Mommy sez hers always luvs to see us hav a good time. Well as you know ow puter’s been duin’ lots of updatin’ and weez been duin’ a lot of we-installin’ lately so weez not only got behind in Blogville, but we haven’t been on Facebook as much eever. We finally got da chance da udder day to visit wiff ow Facebook furiends and we had a message on sis Lexi’s page. Da message wuz askin’ us to share a posty/page, but da foto wuz horrific. Me had planned to make a winter posty alweady but when mommy saw da foto she knew we had to do it soon. After a lot of leaks fwum mommy’s eyes she closed da message and we didn’t share it. Dat dusn’t mean we won’t share yous pages or udders fur dat matter, but mommy likes to keep ow pages rated G. Mommy almost kuldn’t handle da foto, we fur sure wuldn’t want sum of ow younger followers to see dat.
Meez joinin’ da Kitties Blue fur a Selfie on Sunday.
Yes, we do agwee dat sumtimes and fur sum peeps “shock” and gore is da only fing dat makes them unnewstand. But we know we hav sum very caring and intelligent furiends dat not hav to be shocked and horrified. It’s winter and it’s cold outside. We fink most of you use common sense when it comes to yous pets and da gweat outdoors. But this posty isn’t ‘bout yous furries dat be curled up beside you now and stayin’ warm, it’s ‘bout all those furries dat not hav a home or warmff. It’s ‘bout all da ferals and abandoned furries. Twust me, they wuldn’t hav chosen to be out in this wedder. It wuz a hooman sumwhere along da way dat be wesponsible fur them bein’ outside. And now it be up to da hoomans to help take care of them. It makes us so sad and angwy to fink ‘bout all da furries havin’ to live outside, specially in sum aweas dat be pawfully cold.
So we fawt dat we wuld share a foo “winter tips” wiff you to make it better fur all. Purrlease member to knock on da hood of yous car afur you get in and turn it on. Kitties awe out there lookin’ fur warmff anywhere they can find it. Da foto we won’t be showin’ you all wuz da wesult of a kitty sleepin’ in da engine awea of a car dat wusn’t checked first. Ifin you hav ferals or abandoned animals in yous awea, purrlease help them ifin you can. Check and see ifin there’s a TNR purrogwam in yous awea and if so, contact them fur assistance. Fwesh dwinkin’ water and a bowl of food wuld be weally pureciated as prey gets even more scarce in da winter, and huntin’ becomes hawder. And each winter is da first one sum kitties be spendin’ out there.
There awe sevewal options fur purrvidin’ a warm shelter fur them to escape da elements. They can even be made fwum every cats favowit, a box. Tape it up and make a entwy a foo inches fwum da bottom and cover it wiff a heavy duty plastic twash bag. Tape dat up also and add straw or shwedded newspaper fur warmff and insulation. There awe so many udder options and even sum you can buy pwe made. Yous can add heat wiff wiff heatin’ pads, etc.. Be sure to keep them cleaned out and use fwesh beddin’ offen. Ifin at all pawssible place da shelter in an awea where it be purrtected fwum da elements but also away fwum twaffic so dat a skeered feral will use it. Be careful wiff da antifweeze too as it be toxic. These awe just a foo fings dat will help da outside kitties and yous winter go a little smoother.
We awe so glad we hav a furever home and a mommy hoo luvs us very much. A warm place to lay ow heads and full plates to fill ow bellies. And all of ow wunnewful furiends. Fank you all. We awe twuly blest.
Till da nex time………………………Be Blest!!!

Meowllo everypawdy!!! Did yous all make it fwu da festivities and pawties and hoopla of da new year? We had a nice quiet evenin’ at home cuddlin’ in da new year wiff mommy. We turned off da puter and just spent sum quality time bein’ togedder. You know it’s gotten weally cold here lately, so snugglin’ is weally high on ow list. After all isn’t dat what mommy’s awe fur? Yesfurday wuz 21 degwees wiff a chill factor of 17. Dat’s cold fur us. Weez know sum of yous in da single digits and below, but weez hope we don’t get dat this year. Weez can hope. MOL So anyways, today mommy had to get out and go up town fur a bit. We had da door closed so we didn’t weally know how cold it wuz outside. Da neighbor and Buddy’s daddy wuz wheelin’ wound outside in hims short sleeve t-shirt and no shoes. Course hims duz dat all year wound, so we shuldn’t hav paid any tention to hims, but we fawt it must mean it wuz a little warmer today.
So mommy called da fawmacy to make sure she wusn’t gettin’ out fur nuffin’, and all wuz a go. She gwabbed hers coat and put on hers shoes and then looked at me and sed, “Okay Dezi, let’s get goin’.” Me stwetched a bit and she opened da fwunt door and…OMC me kuld feel da cold to meez bones. Fur coat or not dat wuz just ungodly cold. Me turned wight wound and went back in fwunt of da lectric fireplace. Mommy giggled and then sed in da sweet mommy voice, you know da one, hers sed, Dezi, oh sweet Dezi. Like me didn’t know what wuz goin’ on. Me knows she wants sumfin’ when she uses dat voice. She kep it up, Dezi she sed, sweetheart, honey, awe you gunna go to town wiff mommy, she sed. Hmmpht Yous finks me wants to go out in dat cold? Awe yous cwazy? Dat’s zactly what me wuz finkin’. Mommy musta went nuts over night ifin she fawt me wanted to leave da warmff of da house to go up town. Purrlease, what’s to see? And then she laid it on weally fick. She put on da pouty face and looked over at me and sed Dezi dawlin’, me knew what wuz comin’ nex, she wanted me to hop up in da stwoller. Me looked at hers and squeeked. And then me put on da pouty face. MOL You know, 2 can play dat game. Me fawt surely she wuz kiddin’, she didn’t weally wanna get out in at cold, did she? It wus so cold dat all da humidity and condensation had turned to ice. Mommy looked at me and laffed. She sed, “Oh sweet Dezi, I was just kidding, I’m fine and not going to be gone that long. I wasn’t goin’ to ask you to get out in this anyways. Whew Me wuz sure glad she didn’t want me to go.
She went to get hers purse, and me fawt ’bout it and went and hopped in da stwoller. When mommy got back up fwunt she saw me in da stwoller and sed, “Aaaw Sweety I relly appreciate it, but really, I’m only going to be a few minutes and it would take a lot longer to take you than to just run up town by myself this time.” Me always worries when mommy decides to go sumwhere wiffout me, but when it’s these small little twips me dusn’t worry as much. Mommy left and wuz back home afur me kuld even close meez eyes and fall into nap land again. But she wuz cold fwum da top of her head to da tippy toes. So after she put everyfin’ down and took off hers coat, sis Lexi and me did a cuddlefest and warmed hers back up. So twu to da silly superstition, we spent ow first day of da new year duin’ zactly what we did when da clock stwuck midnight, cuddlin’ wiff mommy.
Till da nex time………………Be Blest!!!

Well we shared an oldie but always funny goody wiff you all yesfurday and weez so glad yous all had a gweat laff. We all need to laff ever once in a while and mommy’s a good sport and can laff at hers selff. At least most of da time. MOL Altho’ we wealized after postin’ we furgot to tell you all dat this story wuz fwum 2011. Lexi had shared it on hers facebook page afur we had da blog, but it is so funny dat we just had to share it wiff you all here. (See sis Lexi stawted out hers page and told stories year by year fwum da time she wuz born.) So altho’ there wuldn’t hav been fotos even ifin it wuz yesfurday cuz alas, we hav no fumms, we didn’t even hav a digital camewa in 2011. And da 35 mm we had didn’t hav film, and again, Lexi and me hav no fumms. Me will tell ya’ dat mommy never wanted to be in da spotlight here, but it weally works out well fur her cuz she be da only one dat can work da flashy box. So there’s no danger of hers face bein’ splattered all over meez blog. Least not till they develop a camewa fur us cats. And when dat happens me finks there will be a line of awnties wantin’ to buy us one so they can see all da stupid stuffs mommy duz.
So anyways, Sunday wuz such a purretty day here. Da sun wuz shinin’, it wuz in da 80’s and mommy wuz sittin’ wound in hers shorts wiff da a/c goin’. And then we went to bed and got up Monday fureezin ow little tooshies off. Okay, so maybe nopawdy in this house has little tooshies and maybe they wusn’t fureezin’ off, but it wuz sum kinda cold here. We woke up to 21 degwees. Me will just tell yous it’s not posed to be dat cold here yet. And it’s not just here. Me catness, sum of you alweady hav snow. We just can’t magine alweady gettin’ da snow. Me just hates da snow. And yep me has been out in it afur. It wuz quite by accident, but me wuz IN DA SNOW!!! Me will tell ya’ ‘bout dat sumtime. You will get a gweat laff over dat one too. Mommy might be able to laff at hers selff, but meez not so sure me can laff at meez selff as well. But ifin me dusn’t agwee to tell you ‘bout it sis Lexi will just hijack meez blog and she’ll tell ya’ all ‘bout it.
It turns out a foo of ow furiends did go out shoppin’ on Black Furiday and swear they got sum good deals. A foo of ya’ went out to da gwocery stores and had no purrawlem. Yous know da gwocers haven’t learned yet to take advantage of Black Furiday. Can you magine a Black Furiday sale at da gwocery? Like milk be $4.95 here wegular, and we told ya’ now dat da sales awen’t weally sales anymore, so da gwocer puts out an ad dat reads; Milk 2 gals. fur $10.00. Do you know dat da store wuld be packed and peeps linin’ up wound da block to get it?. And da store be makin’ .10 cents more than they normally do. MOL This Black Furiday fing is way outta contwol. Mommy had intended to take Cyber Monday off and just “unplug”, but she decided she didn’t wanna get dat faw behind. So we logged on and visited as much as we kuld. Ow innewnet wuz runnin’ purretty slow wound here. Dat means a lot of peeps wound us wuz shop, shop, shoppin’ away.
Me will tell you a little secwet. Mommy did sum lookin’ hers selff. Member back duwin’ da fundwaiser when mommy got a gift cawd and wuz told to buy sumfin’ fwivolous? Okay, so mommy looked up da definition of fwivolous (hers hasn’t dun anyfin’ like it in so long she didn’t member what it wuz), and then did a little lookin’ wound hers selff. But alas, she didn’t take da leap. She sed da sales will weally be sales after Christmas, and then she can get da bestest deal fur hers munny. Me did tell you dat meez mommy can stwetch a dollaw so faw yous kuld see fwu it wight? Well, dat’s how. She never sez, “Oh, I would really like to have that,” and then buys it. Stead she sez, “wow, I would really like to have that, but what do the girls need?” Or, “What do we need for blogging and Facebook?” Mommy wrote down camewa battewies, and memowy cawds, and nip papers, and udder fings like dat. Altho’ she will do as instwucted, cuz dat’s da udder fing ‘bout meez mommy, ifin she’s given munny and told what to spend it on dat’s zackly what she duz. So, look fur a fwivolously bought sumfin’ posty after Christmas. And Lexi and me awe so happy ‘bout dat. Mommy dusn’t do it enuff. Her luvs us sumtimes too much. When mommy sez weez be hers world, she weally means it. And of course we be glad ‘bout dat and mommy be ow world too, but sumtimes mommies need a little mommy only time. And ow mommy dusn’t weally do dat.
Anyways, awe you all weady fur Christmas? It’s gunna be here in 22 days. Weez gunna be writin’ ow letter to dat Santa purrsun soon. There awe so many in need this year, we sure hope hims can help out. Fur all of ya’ in da cold, stay warm and safe. Well meez gunna wrap it up fur now and go and check on da sis Lexi and da firplace. Maybe she’s warmed up enuff to play a bit.
Till da nex time…………Be Blest!!!
