Meowllo everypawdy, we hope you’re havin’ a great week. Let me tell ya’ me doesn’t know what this world is comin’ too. Furst sissy Raena hijacks me’s bloggy and now mommy wants to. You know what? It’s okay. After all without mommy me wouldn’t have a bloggy to hijack, and we are all furmily after all. So me’s gonna turn it over to mommy now. She has some great purroducts to tell ya’ ‘bout. And stay tuned, vu we’s havin’ a give away at da end.
Thank you sweety. I won’t make a habit of taking over, and ya’ll did get to try out the new goodies, so you’ll still be a part of the post. Anyways, recently we were given the opportunity to try out a couple of new products from Collage.com’s new pet line. First let me explain a little about the products. We received a bowl and a pillow bed. They are completely customizable as you’ll see by the photos.
This is a sponsored post. We’ve been compensated for sharing. However, we always tell the truth; all opinions are our own. As always we only bring you products we use or have tried ourselves and think would be of interest to you our readers and friends.
When you go to the site and choose the item you want, you’re taken to a screen that allows you to add photos, writing, initials, designs and pretty much whatever your mind can think of. Now you all know I’m no techy. You don’t need to be. It’s a simple and really easy format to work with, and if you have any trouble there’s a number listed on every page for customer service help. You can preview your product and go back and change it all before you finalize it and save it for check out. And if you’re buying more than 1 item, the photos you upload are still available to choose for your next product, or you can choose all new ones.
Let’s take a look at the products themselves. First up the Cat Bowl. It’s a high quality plain white ceramic, fully finished large bowl. When I say fully finished, I mean that the bottom is glazed just like the inside, so no scratching your floors. Altho’ it says it’s dishwasher safe, because of the photos and finish, I would recommend hand washing. The bowl is 6 inches wide by 2 1/4 inches tall (deep). So it’s great for food or water. Collage.com’s recommendation is 1-40 photos for the bowl. But you will also have other options as well as changing the color by adding a background.
Now lets take a look at the Pillow Bed. As Dezi would say, OMC It’s amazing. First off at 40” X 30”, it’s huge. And it’s overstuffed and fluffy, with a plush fleece top and natural weave back. And the cover is removable for easy clean up. You can use anywhere from 1 to 200 photos in your design. And remember, you’ll have other options as well. We gave ours a space like background in Dezi’s signature bluish purple and added DezizWorld to the top. You can even choose the font and color of any writing as well as placement. You’re only limited by your creativity. And you all know this is the area where I’m lacking. But we think our pillow bed is great. Actually, I love it so much, I can’t bring myself to throw it on the floor for the girls to use. lol So, at the moment it rests at the foot of the bed where the girls wrestle with it and lay on it while I fold clothes and do other chores in the bedroom. As a testament to it’s softness, Raena kneads and suckles it. And if I’m being honest, my guess is, that Dezi does too. (shakes head) My spoiled little angels.
Dezi: Mommy, you’re not supposed to tell all me’s secrets. Oh well, can me tell ‘bout da give away now?
Yes Dezi, you can tell about the give away now.
Thanks mommy. Let me tell ya’ dat pillow bed is pawsum and so is da bowl. Raena luvs her bowl, and she knows those are fotos of her on it too. Anyways, da pawsum peeps over at Collage.com are lettin’ us give away one of those amazin’ Customizable Ceramic Pet Bowls. Dat’s right, one lucky U.S. reader will get to customize their very own cat or dog bowl dat will then be shipped to your door. Ya’ might wanna check out all da other pawsum customizable purroducts they have while you’re there.
Don’t furget to get your fly fishin’ fotos in fur our Pawlympics event. And we’re takin’ questions fur our next Service Cat posty. We’s gonna go now so you can enter da give away.
Till da next time………………………………….Be Blest!!!

Meowllo and welcome to a very Blest Sunday. Of course we think every day’s a blessing, but we feel doubly and even triply blest sometimes. And this weekend is one of those times. As ya’ know, sis Raena had to go to da VET on Furiday fur her second round of core vaccines; somethin’ she wasn’t lookin’ furward too. ‘Course neither was mommy, cuz it’s getting’ really hot here now dat Summer has arrived full force; and with no a/c in da car and no way to roll da windows down mommy dreads goin’ anywhere, specially ifin she has to take us. But Furiday came and mommy gathered up Raena and they were off.
Sissy, I thought I’s was gonna get to tell ‘bout mines own VET visit?.
You are Raena, me was just settin’ things up fur ya’. You need to learn some patience kid. MOL Well, go ahead and tell everypawdy ‘bout ya’ll’s trip.
Fanks Dezi. You’s da bestest sisfur ever. So mommy and me got started down da road when suddenly there were these lights flahin’ behind us and screamin’ sounds too. Mommy said, oh no, and scooted over to another lane and told me to stay quiet. Turns out those lights and screamin’ cars belong to pawlice, and dat’s what they do when they’re gonna pull somepawdy over fur speedin’ and such. Altho’ mommy wanted to speed so we could hurry and get outta da heat, she wasn’t, so she was a little confused. But as soon as we moved over, 4 screamin’ pawlice cars went flyin’ passed us. And then we saw it. A fuel truck had wrecked and every cop in these pawrts was right there. So we got stuck in da traffic jam and was 5 minutes late to mines ‘pointment.
It didn’t seem to matter tho’ da place was full of big ole doggies with bad owners. Several of those doggies was tryin’ to get me and their owners just sat there, sayin’ things like, “Oh, he doesn’t like cats.” And…while droppin’ da leashes to look in her purse lady, “Don’t bother the kitty Bruiser and Tuffy.” Mommy was irate, and gave them a piece of her mind ‘bout handlin’ their doggies and how bein’ at da VETs doesn’t exempt them from da law dat says your animal must be attached to a leash with a respawnsible adult attached to da other end and da doggy must be under control at all times when outside of their house. And then she took me to da back. ‘Course we were followed by a tech who said, it was fine fur mommy to go on ahead and go to da back and dat da VET would just see me there. They wasn’t thrilled, but you could tell they knew better than to say anythin’ to mommy ’bout it.
Once in da back, both VETs were there and made over me along with a couple of techs. But they wasn’t foolin’ me none, I’s knew what was in store. I could see da needles sittin’ on mines folder. Furst da lady VET pawed me all over and tried to get kisses. Did she think I had done furgotten how she manhandled me just a few weeks ago? Hmmmpht Well I didn’t and gave her a hiss ‘stead of a kiss. Then he, Dr. C put me on a scale. I weighed a whole 2.4 pounds. Mommy says I’s way too skinny, but da VETs said I looked great and dat mines fur was da bestest they’d seen since sis Dezi. They asked mommy ‘bout supplements, but she told ‘em we don’t really take any, but dat we do eat freeze dried raw.
Mommy’s workin’ up to da all out raw. I luvs it, but Dezi not so much. And I’s wanna eat whatever sis Dezi does, so…Anyways, both da VETs frowned, but said nuffin’. You could tell they was bitin’ their tongues, and have learned not to argue with mommy. And then da nasty VET lady stuck me. Not once but 2 times. Yep, she stuck me twice and then shoved somethin’ in mines mouth. Then da lady VET wanted to hug all over me again. Fur a minute I’s furgot I’s a Ragdoll and started squirmin’ ‘bout till she gave me back to mommy. And then back thru da office we went. There was a doggie free fur all goin’ on and a lady huddled on her chair with a kitty under her shirt tryin’ to purrtect it. But when mommy looked over at da doggy peeps, they all scampered to grab their leashes. It’s such a shame dat peeps act dat way. Anyways, mommy paid da lady and we was off. Seems I’s still have to take dat yucky medicne till mines eyes clear up, but at least we was finished there.
Mommy had purromissed me some of those yummy treats we found da last time we went to da VET, so we headed to Walmart. Y, They marked those treats down from .50 cents a package to a quarter. So mommy got me several packages and even gave me a few right then. Somepawdy asked us what they are da other day and we couldn’t ‘member, but they’re called Delectables Real chicken/chicken and tuna, Chicken and turkey and so on, Juicy treat. They have quite a few flavors. All they are is chunks of whatever protein in a bag and kept moist. There’s about 6 treats purr bag. Mommy says they’re overpriced even at a quarter, but I’s luvs ‘em and she wants to reward me fur takin’ mines medicine. Also, somethin’ ‘bout puttin’ some meat on mines bones. MOL
Anyways, we headed home. It was so hot I panted da whole way home. Mommy had brought a wet wash cloth dat she kept tryin’ to put on me, but I’s kept tryin’ to shake it off. Mommy said it woulda helped keep me cool, but I’s didn’t believe her. After all, she had a wet wash cloth wrapped ‘round her neck and she was pourin’ sweat all down her face. When we finally got home I’s didn’t feel good. I’s didn’t wanna eat. All I’s wanted to do was lay ‘round on mommy and sleep. She said I’s was burnin’ up with fever and cried and purrayed fur da longest time. ‘Tween da heat and da vaccinations, I got really sick. Sis Dezi was so sweet to me. I’s know she luvs me, and I’s sure do luvs her. I’s feelin’ better now, but mommy sure was worried.
Thanks Raena, we’re all glad you’re okay. Mommy and me really was worried ‘bout ya’. But God is a big God and we are so thankful dat He helped you get better. Dat’s a great blessing indeed. ‘Course we told ya’ we made it through da furst inspection without any purroblems and somepawdy commented dat it seemed we were always havin’ inspections and wanted to know how offen we had these. Yes, it does seem like we’s havin’ them all da time to us too. They’re allowed to do 1 inspection a month, and usually dat’s what they do. But, they occasionally try to slip in extras, like they are this month. ‘Cuz we live in subsidized housing, they’re allowed to purrfurm inspections. It’s a real pain in da behind and this is da furst place we’ve ever lived dat took advantage of that right. There are no tenants meetings and mommy has already reported them several times. Da respawnse was dat mommy has da legal right to refuse entry beyond da one inspection a month.
Anyways, we are so blest to have all of you in our lives and we purreciate all your purrayers fur Raena’s VET visit and fur us in general. Raena has one last VET visit in 3 weeks and then her core vaccines will be over and all she’ll need will be da “by law” rabies shot and her spay day in October. We got some great questions fur our Service Cat posty tomorrow, and we have a pawsum give away comin’ up this week. So stay tuned. We’s also joinin’ da Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. And ‘member to take a minute today and everyday to give thanks fur da blessings in your life.
Till da next time……………………………………Be Blest!!!

Hey? Is anypawdy there? I gotta be quick befur sis Dezi figgers out dat I’s on her bloggy. Mommy says it’s our bloggy, but Dezi keeps tellin’ me her name’s at da top, so she gives da orders. She says dat ‘bout a lot of things, but I don’t always lissen. Like, she thinks she should be da only one eatin’ outta her plate. But I think da food taste better in her plate, and don’t see why she doesn’t wanna share?. After all, we are sisfurs. And her pawdee box, it’s…well, I better get on with it, or she’ll come lookin’ fur me.
We made it thru da furst of da three inspections, and there wasn’t any purroblems. Da mean manager lady started botherin’ mommy da minute she opened da office yesfurday; callin’ mommy ‘bout da lease stuffs. Oh, and mommy innerviewed a really nice little girl to help her ‘round da house. We really liked her. So, pendin’ her criminal background check, and of course her showin’ up to work, we think we’s got a winner. Paws crossed it all works out. We’ll of course tell ya’ more ‘bout it in da future.
Anyways, da real reason I got on here today is cuz I need rescuin’. Yep, I do. I heard mommy and sis Dezi talkin’ ‘bout da mean ole VET place and how I was goin’ back there today. Dat just don’t seem right. Sissy only had to be stuck once, so why do I have to keep goin’ back? Seems like abuse to me. You know mommy is pawsum, I luvs her very much. And sis Dezi ain’t bad either. All in all, I luvs mines furever home, but this VET thing could be a deal breaker. I mean, what are kitten vaccines and core vaccines and just why do I need ‘em? Da last time we was there mommy purromissed this wasn’t somethin’ I would have to go through all da time. Seems to me dat it wasn’t dat long ago and I was goin’ thru it. And, I’ve been havin’ to take this nasty tastin’ yellow medicine and mines eyes and nose are still runny. So there. Just what is it dat these VETs know anyways?
RaenaBelle Maycee!!! What are you doin’ on me’s bloggy? It’s Furiday and time to join’ da Pet Parade. And we needed to let peeps know what’s been goin’ on and dat we’ll be by to visit them later.
I told them all ‘bout dat sissy. Well, I didn’t get to da Pet Parade thing, but I’s told ‘em ‘bout everythin’ else.
Well, Okay, but next time you need to ask befur hijackin’ me’s bloggy.
Mommy says it’s our bloggy, Dezi.
Of course she does Raena, she doesn’t want you to feel left out, BUT…it’s me’s name at da top. You’d do good to ‘member dat. Anyways, you and mommy gotta get ready to go, so we need to wrap it up. Any purrayers you can spare would be purreciated. Da a/c in da car still doesn’t work and da windows still don’t roll down. And it’s finally hot summer here. And altho mommy believes in getting’ da kitten series of vaccinations, she realizes there is still a certain amount of risks associated with them. Don’t furget to send in your fotos fur our Pawlympics Fly Fishin’ event.
Till da next time……………………………………Be Blest!!!

Well here we are half way thru another week. It’s been really hot here, so we’ve all been tryin’ to just chill out and stay cool. ‘Course da manager’s finally back on da purropurrty workin’ on our lease re-certification and buggin’ da dickens outta mommy. She was down here twice yesfurday wantin’ more stuffs. And then at some point she was here again leavin’ a notice on our door ‘bout this months inspection. Only we ain’t havin’ just one inspection this month, they’re tryin’ to slip in 3. Yep, they wanna intrude in our houses 3 times this month.
Da lease and da Landlord Tenant Act allows fur one inspection a month. But this management company likes to push da limits. And since most of da residents have been bullied fur so long, no one stands up to them and holds them to da law. So it looks like mommy’s gonna be really busy this month too. Da furst of those 3 inspections is tomorrow, and Raena has every toy we own pulled outta da toy basket and strewn all over da floor. And since we haven’t found anypawdy to help mommy ‘round da house, then all da clean up falls to her. These are da times mommy wishes we could vacuum and mop. Alas, no thumbs mommy.
But Dezi, I saw a kitty on da catputer vacuumin’ da other day. Sure ‘nuff, dat kitty was sittin’ on top of a round machine goin’ from room to room cleanin’ da floors.
Yes Raena they make these little robots dat clean da floor all by themselves. Dat kitty wasn’t vacuuming, he was goin’ along fur da ride. And besides. those machines cost a lot of money.
Well whatever Dezi, we need one of those.
Dat would be great Raena, but me told you they cost a lot of green papers dat we don’t have.
Well let’s make mommy some Dezi. I saw some colors ‘round here da other day.
(Dezi sighs and shakes her head)
Oh Raena, it doesn’t work dat way. It would be nice ifin it did; but it doesn’t. But me can tell ya’ one thing you can do to help mommy.
Really sissy? What is it? I would luvs to help mommy.
You can pick up all these toys you drug outta da toy box and put ‘em back. And next time only pull out da toy ya’ wanna play with right then. and when you’re finished playin’ or want a different toy, then put da old one back.
Uhhhhh (Raena sits still for a minute as she thinks)
But Dezi, dat doesn’t sound like fun. With all da toys in da floor, I can play with several at da same time.
But me thought you wanted to help mommy?
Dat’s okay sissy, I’s will find another way.
Yeah Raena, me thought so. Anyways, looks like mommy isn’t gonna have a lot of time to help us visit fur a day or two and then Raena has to go back to da VET on Furiday, so our week is gonna be full. We’ll be ‘round to visit as we can.
Now me also wants to remind you all ‘bout our Palympics event, Fly Fishin’. There’s still time to get your fotos in to us. And, all those who enter will get a pawsum badge created by Ann over at Zoolatry. We sure do purrectiate her and all she does fur da blogosphere. Check out da badge you’ll get.
Ifin ya have questions ‘bout da fly fishin’ event, check out our posty here. While there, you can also click over and check out all da events dat are still open. We’s gonna wrap it up now so mommy can get ready fur tomorrow’s inspection. We’re also getting’ some great questions fur our next Service Cat posty. And we were honored to be featured yesfurday on Jeanne Foguths blog bringin’ attention to Service Cats. Ifin ya missed it, check it out here.
Till da next time……………………………..Be Blest!!!
