RaenaBelle, hurry up!!! Do you know what today is? It’s Resurrection Sunday!!! Today’s the most Blest Sunday there is. We celebrate the fact that Jesus rose from the dead all those years ago so that all could be saved from their sins and spend eternity in heaven ‘stead of hell. No greater Blessing has ever been given.
You’re right sissy. It’s purretty amazin’ that God could luvs this world so much that He would send Jesus to die fur us. A world so full of turmoil and evil. Even so, He saw the good and wanted to make sure that everypawdy had the oppurrtunity to turn away from their evil ways and be what He created them to be; children of God.
Yep Raena, that’s some kind of luv alright. You know, we’re always meowin’ that Blessings come in many forms, all ya’ have to do is take a minute to see ‘em. Each day is a Blessing that no one is guaranteed. The very air that we breathe, even the storms we don’t like are Blessings. As most everpawdy knows, we’ve been really goin’ thru it lately. But, no matter how bad things may look, there’s always a Blessing to give fanks fur.
Lap luvvin’ time is a pawsum Blessing. I’s do luvs mine’s mommy.
Fur sure sissy. We’ve got a pawsum luvvin’ mommy, a roof over our heads, good food in our bellehs, the greatest furiends in the universe and a new day to meow ‘bout how much we luvs everypawdy. Ya’ know sissy, I’s was kind’a wonderin’ just what this Easter bunny and huntin’ colored eggs have to do with anythin’?.
Our pawsum cat tree, what a Blessing.
Well Raena, they don’t really have anythin’ to do with the resurrection of Jesus; but, the bunny and those colored eggs symbolize furtility and new beginnings. These were symbols used by the pagans of old and just got incor-purrated into Resurrection Sunday a long long time ago. We don’t actually celebrate that way, but lots of peeps do. Mommy says when she was younger, Easter also meant that she got a new dress fur church and peeps in general could put away their old dark wintry clothes and start wearin’ pastels and whites. Did you know there was a time when nopaawdy wore white till Easter time each year?
Humans sure have some strange customs, sissy. Guess we would’a been outta fashion what with all our white furs. Anyways, it doesn’t really matter how one celebrates today, we purray that you all have a Blest Resurrection Sunday/Easter.
We sure do Raena. And meowin’ of Blessings, we received a few material ones this past week that we need to give fanks fur. Fank you awnty Susan fur the green papers. They are always purreciated.
A gift box fur mommy is a welcome Blessing
Yep sissy, and fanky fank ya’ to awnty Cindy and angel Maggie Meme fur the pawsum boxes. They were full of yummy goodies. The foto doesn’t show everythin’. There was 2 full boxes of goodies. Mommy even shared a string cheese with me. I’s do luvs me some cheese. MOL Not as much as I’s luvs rabbit, but it’s fur sure in mine’s top ten fave foods.
And did you see those cutesy little socklettes they sent to mommy, Raena? She luvved ‘em.
And don’t furget the green papers, sissy. They wanna help us get to BlogPaws almost as much as we wanna go.
We’ve got our paws crossed that’s fur sure. Anyways, we need to wrap this up. It’s the last day of Campmeetin’ at our church. We are fur sure the most Blest kitties in the universe. Fank you all fur bein’ our furiends and pawrt of our family. We luv you all and purray that God will meet your every need. As always, we wanna remind you to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives.
And don’t furget sissy, we’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies.
Till the next time……………………………………….Be Blest!!!

Raena, what are you doin’?
Did you read all the comments on our Service Cat Monday posty sissy? Everybody thinks I’s so smart.
Me read them, and you are smart. But, you shouldn’t let that give you the big head. ‘Member, mommy says it’s always better to be humble. Peeps don’t like a smarty pants.
Just what does that mean, anyways? What’s a smarty pants. Cuz, I’s not wear any pants, lessen ya’ count mine’s bloomers. And while we’re at it, what’s this smarty pants fone? Ya’ know when we went to mommy’s doctors ‘pointment last week, mommy furgot to take the camera…as usual. And she was sayin’ how she needed one of those smarty pants fones so she’d always have a camera available.
Why? What did you do?
I’s didn’t do anythin’ sissy, but there was this gigantor bunny rabbit outside the farmacy that mommy said she’d like to take our foto with. He was rockin’ and wavin’ in the wind, and I’s not so sure I’s would’a wanted to have mine’s foto taken with him. But, mommy says it would’a been sooooooooo cute.
Yeah Raena, mommy likes things like that. She thinks we’d look so adorable up next to those decorations.
What kind’a decoration is a big ole bunny with a basket, sissy?
It signifies Easter, Raena. Me’s doesn’t actually unnerstand it all either, cuz mommy says Easter is all ‘bout the resurrection of Jesus. But it seems that some peeps celebrate by hidin’ funny colored eggs, and then carryin’ ‘round baskets and huntin’ fur those eggs. And me thinks they believe this bunny called Peter Cottontail lays ‘em. And of course as with any human holiday, there’s chocolates involved too.
That don’t sound right sissy. Bunnies don’t lay eggs??. Do they??. I’s gonna ask mommy ‘bout all this, or maybe Speedy. He’s a bunny, surely he knows ’bout all this?.
Fine, don’t believe me. See ifin me answers any more of your questions.
Oh sissy, I’s believe you. Don’t get hissy. (Raena mumbles under her breath)
You still haven’t told me what a smarty pants is, or a smarty pants fone fur that matter. (Raena turns to look at Dezi and excitedly meows)
Hey, have you been workin’ on mine’s birthday pawrty?
Me has, Raena. But what ifin it was gonna be a surprise? You shouldn’t be askin’ ‘bout it.
But it’s not a surprise, right? Cuz we’ve all been talkin’ ‘bout it?.
No Raena, it’s not a surprise. What do you think ‘bout this fur your invitation?
That’s really cool sissy. Are we havin’ a circus?
Maybe Raena. Would you like a circus?
I’s don’t know sissy, I’s never been to a circus befur.
Well, our ‘pawrtment purrobably isn’t big enuff fur a circus Raena, but don’t worry, it’ll be lots of fun. Birthday’s are always fun here. Mommy always wants us to feel really special and extra luvved. Come on, let’s go finish brekky and take a nap. We’ve got an inspection today, and the exterminator’s here too. So mommy’s gonna have to get ready to mop. Those exterminators’ always make a huge mess by sprayin’ that poison in the middle of the floor and all up and down the walls. Mommy says their vision must be worse than hers. MOL That’s why she likes to spray our ‘pawrtment herself. Besides, the stuffs they use is so watered down, it doesn’t really kill anythin’.
That Bengal stuffs mommy uses really works good. But it should; after all, it’s named after a cat. MOL Do we have a play date fur tomorrow sissy? You know, mommy’s goin’ back to the dental surgeon fur her recheck, and again, she plans to leave both of us here.
Yep, Raena, me’s invited some furiends over to play and keep you occupied while mommy’s gone. (Hearing the alert alarms of other apartments getting closer, and seeing the lawn crew’s truck drive up, Dezi heads down from her perch atop the Liberty tree and meows to Raena)
You better hurry Raena, it’s fixin’ to get really loud ‘round here.
Till the next time…………………………………………Be Blest!!!

Meowllo and happy Caturday to you all. Mommy and me was so excited dat me just had to purrticipate in Caturday Art hosted by da gawjus Athena. Excited ’bout what you ask? Well as you know we’s been havin’ catputer purroblems and so we haven’t been able to be online or visit very much fur a while. And as ya’ know, cuz me told ya’ dat uncle Garth and awnty Mary Beth sed they wuld pay to get it fixed ifin mommy kuld find somewhere to take it. Mommy had called ’round to da three places listed in da fone book and found dat only one place was still in business, and dat it was gonna take a week to get our catputer fixed up and back to us once mommy dropped it off. Of course da repair place was a good 45 miles away. As you know we also had da big inspection dat mommy had to get ready fur and then there was da takin’ care of da confused me, so da catputer got put on da back burner till we kuld get thru with da inspection. So on Fursday mommy finally got da catputer over to da repair shop. Da peeps their was really nice but business is business; so they told mommy there was a few in front of us and they wouldn’t be able to even look at our catputer till next Tuesday. Mommy knew there was nuffin’ she kuld do ’bout it, so she left da catputer and hoped da fan was da only purroblem. Mommy called awnty Mary Beth and gave her an update and then back home she came. Yep, she had gone by herself cuz she was pickin’ up sis Lexi too and just wanted to be alone fur a little bit. And yes, me was worried and pacin’ da floor
nappin’ on da cat tree till she got home. We finally settled in fur da evenin’. At least da catputer was at da repair shop in line to be fixed.
Mommy was able to find a way to get to some of me’s fotos so we kuld post an update yesfurday, and then we settled in fur another visitless day. We miss everypawdy so much and can’t wait to get ’round to check in with ya’ll. Anyways, a little after noon yesfurday da fone rang. It was da nice lady at da catputer repair shop. And she sed, “Your computer’s ready to be picked up. The motherboard fan was really gunked up, but once we cleaned it, it looks like new and is runnin’ like new.” Mommy was like, “Are you kiddin’? Really? Sweeeeeet, I’ll be right over.” Mommy called awnty Mary Beth and she was just as excited as mommy. And since da fan didn’t have to be replaced they charged us a little less fur da repair. So awnty Mary Beth sed, “Get Dezi something for Easter from us.” So off we went to pick up da catputer and somethin’ special fur me. And da peeps at da catputer repair shop sed mommy shuld get a fan table to help keep da catputer cool. So dat meant a stop at da wally world. Of course we was exhausted when we got home so mommy wasn’t able to get all da fotos she’s taken while da catputer’s been out put on it, but we did get one fur today. And me got a really cool purresent from awnty Mary Beth and uncle Garth, Gizmo and da gang. But you’ll have to wait till we can get all da fotos loaded up to see it. So it looks like we’s gonna be back to visitin’ by Monday. Yes we have a lot of fotos to load. Fank da cats, cuz me really wants to know what all ya’ll have been up to. We also got a call from a really nice lady on Fursday dat just might be full of news. We’ll tell ya’ ’bout dat in another posty. In da meantime, enjoy Caturdays’ art and have a wonderful Easter.
Till da next time…………………………………..Be Blest!!!
