Dezi:  No Raena, me’s not callin’ our ‘pawrtment the Three Belles Ranch. Now c’mon, we’ve got lots of furiends that hopped on the Blessing  Train this week. Our train is growin’.  

 

The Blessing Train

 

 

Blessing Train with FriendsThere’s still purrlenty of track left fur you.

 

 

 

          I’s know sissy. It just warms mine’s heart to see everypawdy join in. Our dear furiends from Meezers Mews and Terrieristical Woofs, Pipo and Dalton, joined us. Ya’ know, their house was recently broken into and some horrible peep(s) stole their things. In spite of it all, they’re so Blest that nopawdy was hurt. We don’t know how they do it, but they never miss a birthday or gotchaday in the blogosphere. We are so Blest to call ya’ll furiends. Fanky fanks fur joinin’ us. And, we’re keepin’ ya’ll in our purrayers. Now their computer was stolen, so we helped them make their boxcar. Rest assured that had awnty Ingrid, aka  Petcretary made it, it would be much more elaborately decorated.

They’re just the bestest Raena. Next up is our amazin’ Scottish furiends from Spike The Scottish Black Cat, Spike and awnty Christine. They are just the sweetest furiends with hearts of gold. Black Cats rock, and Spike is proof of how pawsum they can be. We look forward to many more years of furiendship with ya’ll. True furiends are to be cherished, and we feel so  Blest to call ya’ll furiends. Fanks fur hoppin’ on. 

  

Spike and Christine boxcar

 

 

 

          Oh sissy, I’s just luvs them. Next to hop on board is a dear furiend we met thru our articles at the Daily Mews, awnty Vonda. She has 15 kitties and counting that she cares fur. She’s not a blogger, but has 2 angel kitties on the old Catster, Sassy and Pepper. She sent green papers that helped mommy rescue me from that horrible cage in that stinky place I’s was born into. You’d be hard pressed to find a truer furiend. She’s always there with a kind word or purrayer. We’re so Blest to call you furiend. Fanky fanks fur hoppin’ on. 

 

Vonda, Sassy and Pepper boxcar

 

 

 

She’s been so pawsum to all of us Raena. Our bestest Persian pal Valentine, from Noir Kitty Mews added another boxcar full of Blessings this week. He meowed ‘bout his family and how Blest he was to have his. And he’s so right, family is a furtastic Blessing. We count Val and his family as pawrt of ours too. Unner all that fur you’d find kindness a heart full of luv to share with all he meets. We’re so Blest to call ya’ll furiends. Fanks fur joinin’ us fur this amazin’ ride.  

 

Valentine Boxcar family

 

 

 

Up next is awnty Sandee from Comedy Plus. She says she doesn’t currently have any kitties or woofies. We meow, that’s okay. The Blessing Train is open to all who want to join. We link up with her each week fur Feline Fridays and offen find awnty Sandee links us up fur Aaaaaaaw Mondays. She’s kind and luvvin’ and we’re so Blest to call you furiend. Fanks fur joinin’ us.

 

Comedy Plus boxcar

 

 

 

          They are all such a Blessing sissy. Last but certainly not least this week is awnty Ellen and the kitties of 15 and Meowing. Now some of ya’ already know this, but fur those who don’t, awnty Ellen is mine’s God awnty. You know, kind’a like a God mother. See, back when mommy saved me and befur she and sissy told the world, they told awnty Ellen. Awnty Ellen made me mine’s furst ever toys and nip mat to welcome me into the world. But it’s not just me, awnty Ellen does so many pawsum things fur all in the blogosphere. Any kitty who’s ever tried her Made With Luvs toys and/or mats know just how talented and generous she is. And, how much luvs she puts out. We’re so Blest to call you furiends. Fanky fanks joinin’ us. And, don’t furget, there’s still time to get Prancie’s Prayer fur the young’un’s in your life.

Blest Sunday: The Blessing Train Is On The Move

MeOW  RaenaBelle, quit jumpin’ on me. It’s time fur our Blest Sunday posty, and kittens is me ever x’cited. Did ya’ see? Our Blessing Train is gettin’ longer. We’ve had several furiends hop on board and add their boxcar to ours. Me hopes lots more will join in the Blessing Train fun. 

 

Dezi sits atop the cat tree while Raena sits on the small perch

 

 

 

 

          Me too, sissy. There’s purrlenty of box cars and lots of track left. I’s would luvs to see our Train go ‘round the world and back again, wouldn’t you?

 

 

The Blessing Train

 

 

 

Yep Raena, that would be purretty cool. We’ll tell ya’ how to join in a minute, but furst, let’s take a look at who hopped on this past week. (In no purrticular order x’cept how the fotos saved to our computer) 

 

Canadian Cats Boxcar

 

 

 

Our long time furiends from the Canadian Cats, Shoko, Tyebe and Budd jumped on the tracks and hooked up their boxcar. We’re so Blest to have ya’ll and fanks fur joinin’ in. Ya’ know, Tyebe and Budd are fairly new members of Fort Meezer and Budd be a handsum tabby. They keep awnty Jean and uncle Bill on their toes. Hearts of gold they have and they’re all a bit cheeky in their own ways. MOL We’re so happy and Blest to call ya’ll furiends. 

 

          I’s just luvs them sissy. 

 

You luv everypawdy Raena.  

 

Feline Cafe boxcar

 

 

 

          I’s do sissy. But that’s a good thing, right? Anyways, next up is our sweet furiends from the Feline Café, Scooby, Opie, Zeke, Marigold and their daddy (uncle) Greg. Aren’t they gawjus? What an amazin’ little family they are. And just the sweetest cats and peep. Truer furiends you’ll never meet. Whether loungin’ ‘round the house or playin’ in their catio, we doubt there’s ever a dull moment at their place. We’re so glad ya’ll hopped on and hooked up. We’re so Blest to call ya’ll furiends. 

 

Valentine Boxcar

 

 

 

That we are, Raena, that we are. The last kit to hop onboard this week is the sweetest black Persian of the Blogosphere, Valentine from Noir Kitty Mews. Which reminds me of a Blessing we received this week. Fank you Val and awnty Kerry fur the Christmas gifts. Raena stuck her nose in the bag, but mommy snatched it away and told her not till Christmas. That Valentine ain’t just a handsum face tho’, he’s got a heart big as Texas and purrsonality too. We’re so Blest to call ya’ll furiends.  

 

Raena sits on cat tree with gift from Val and KerryFanky fank you Valentine and awnty Kerry.

 

 

 

          Sissy, we really are Blest with the bestest furiends in the universe. You know, true furiends know your flaws and luvs you anyways. Now that’s a Blessing. We are so Blest to have each other. And that’s our Blessing this week, Luvs. We know it sounds kind’a silly cuz everypawdy knows you have to have money to pay fur things you need like food and homes and cars and stuffs, but we truly believe that Luvs is the most ‘purrtant thing. 

 

Dezi n Raena check our Christmas gifts from Valentine and KerrySuch purretty wrapping’s we’ll hate to tear them up…NOT!!! Fank you.

 

 

 

Yep Raena, we do. Studies have been done that show humans can’t truly survive completely alone. And while peeps may try to say we kitties are solitary creatures, we thrive when we have the luv of a good purrson. We know that sometimes it comes off as ifin we’re purrfect and always get along. And that you’re doin’ somethin’ wrong ifin your kitties aren’t doin’ the same thing. But, we posted a couple of fotos the other day of us havin’ a “disagreement”. Mommy says in her eyes we are purrfect, and even when we have these minor spats, it’s all worth it when she sees us sharin’ a moment like the one below. We’re not really purrfect, but cuz mommy only sees us with eyes of luv, then to her, we are.

Luv wins out.

 

 

 

          And cuz of the luvs she has fur us, we in turn luvs each other, right sissy?  

  

Red Box CarSave this foto and decorate it for yourself.

 

 

 

Yes Raena, you’re right. You can be a pest sometimes, but me luvs you anyways. Without luv, where would we be? We don’t wanna know, and we know ya’ll don’t either.  Now, let’s tell ya’ how to join the Blessing train fur yourself. We’ve had a few of you ask fur better instructions, so we’ll try. Ifin ya’ need more help, just send us an email and we’ll do what we can to get you linked up.

Chatting Cats: Cat Themed Gift Guide On A Budget

MeOW  Brrrrrrrrrr  Kittens Has it ever turned cold here. RaenaBelle, you need to learn to share the cuddles. You were hoggin’ all the mommy warmth last night and me nearly froze me’s pantaloons off.  

 

Dezi sits on cat tree house looking out window and Raena sits on cat tree ledge

 

 

 

          Pantaloons? What pantaloons, sissy? Do you even have pantaloons? Do I’s have pantaloons? 

 

Me’s bloomers, Raena. And yes, you have ‘em too. 

 

Raena licks paw while sitting on cat tree

 

 

 

          Oh, bloomers. Well, why didn’t you just meow that sissy? I’s thought I’s was gonna have to add pantaloons to mine’s list of wants.   

 

List of wants? What list of wants Raena?

  

          Oh you know sissy, the one I’s been makin’ while we’ve been shoppin’ fur our Gift Guide.  

 

Dezi sits atop cat tree looking down

 

 

 

Raena, you’re not s’posed to be shoppin’ fur yourself. We’re s’posed to be pickin’ out things that would make a great gift ideas fur others. 

 

          I’s was sissy. But mommy says the bestest gift you can get fur somepawdy is the gift you’d want fur yourself. 

 

Dezi lays on chair arm beside mommy A

 

 

 

(Dezi rolls her eyes and shakes her head)  Well Raena, meowin’ of shoppin’, we’ve got our Gift Guide to get out today. We wanted to include somethin’ fur everypawdy, but on a budget. After all, who knows more ‘bout stretchin’ a dollar than us?   

 

Raena lays atop cat tree looking down

 

 

 

 

          Ain’t that the truth sissy. What do ya’ say we start with Gifts fur kitty?  

 

Sounds good to me Raena. With innernet shoppin’ in the palm of your hands, choices are only limited by your pawcket book. One of the furst places we go too when lookin’ fur a good deal is ebay. Now, ifin you’ve got time and patience you might wanna try your luck at the bidding wars fur your deal; but, we purrfur the buy it now option. We know fur sure how much we’re payin’ and we don’t have to worry ‘bout someone stealin’ it out from unner us in the last 2 seconds. We like to shop with sellers who have a rating of 95% and up. We also luv free shippin’. Who doesn’t luv somethin’ free, right? So, let’s take a look at some of the pawsum deals you can get on a budget. 

 

Dezi enjoying a silvervine stickOh the vine is fine…

 

 

 

1.  How’s ‘bout a baggie of silvervine? This relative of catnip is much more potent and is well received by even cats who aren’t affected by regular nip. At $3.75 and free shippin’, this would thrill almost any cat on Christmas meownin’.    

 

Raena carries the crinkle ball from the Kong Incline cat scratcher

2.  Are you a kitty who luvs a good crinkle ball  ($3.99 for 12)?  

 

3.  Or maybe you need your very own tunnel  ($8.95)? This is 4 feet of fun that can be collapsed down when the peeps have company and need the floor back. 

 

4.   Here’s somethin’ we haven’t tried, but think would make a great gift fur the feline who has everything. Your very own lickable catnip treat fur $1.79 and free s/h from Hong Kong. Now this wouldn’t make it here befur Christmas, but hey, we’re cats. We deserve gifts every day, right? 

 

Dezi lays on scratcher

5.  Our favorite corrugated Cat Scratcher at $38.99 and free shippin’. We couldn’t pawssibly have a Gift Guide fur kitties without includin’ a great scratcher. At nearly 34” long and 10” high and wide, it’s not only good fur scratchin’, but makes the purrfect loungin’ spot.   

 

Raena sits on cat tree with mouth open

 

 

 

          Now that kitty’s happy, let’s take a look at some ideas fur the cat men out there. We realize not all cat men wanna flaunt their special luvs fur kitties in the same way as their female counterpawrts. We’re not sure why, but most cat daddies don’t wanna wear a t-shirt announcin’ their cat craziness. But that’s okay, we luvs all the cat daddies out there. That brings us to another place we like to check fur high quality bargain gifts, The LC. At purrices startin’ below $10.00 fur sterling silver, you can get the man in your life some amazin’ jewelry pieces.

 

Lion head leather bracelet

 

6.  This leather and stainless steel Lion’s head bracelet fur $9.99 would let you cat daddy’s show off your luvs fur the feline form in a masculine way. 

 

7.  Check out this Wrist Watch fur only $6.99 and free shipping. 

 

8.  We totally luvs this Yin & Yang 2 pc cat pendant fur him and her. And at only $8.99 with free shippin’ you can knock 2 peeps off your list with one purrchase. And sine it’s made of stainless steel, nopawdy’s gonna turn green. MOL  

 

RaenaBelle, me can’t believe you said that.   

 

 

          What sissy? Mommy said mystery metals are never a good idea fur gifts. They make some peeps rot. Anyways…

 

 

9.  We found this adorable little cat face dish clearanced at $5.99. Now I’s know what you’re thinkin’, but we think it would make a great little dish on a desk or table fur like keys, paper clips and such. Another way the cat daddies can show their devotion to the feline form without screamin’ it. 

 

 

 10. Now this one could be fur anypawdy, not just the men. Everypawdy needs a calendar, right? Paw on over to cafepress.com to purrsonalize your gift. Prices start at $9.99. They’re even offurin’ free shippin’ right now. And of course there’s lots of other things you can purrsonalize too.

 

11.  Fur the young animal luvver these adorable Paw Print earrings at $9.99 would make a great choice. And feed some hungry shelter cats.  

 

Dezi lays on chair arm looking at mommy A

 

 

 

Those earrings would make a great gift fur anypawdy with pierced ears Raena. Our next find is a bit whimsical, but hey, sometimes ya’ need a little whimsy. 

 

Cat ice tray

12.  Ifin you’re lookin’ fur a fun novelty gift to spice up a pawrty or even every day, this kitty ice cube tray just might be the thing at only $5.99. 

 

13.  Me purrsonally found this store on ebay. They have lots of great kitty and woofy pendants fur the ladies startin’ at $8.00 with free shippin’. 

 

14.  We know many have lost their furry luvs this past year and it’s really tuff, specially on the holidays. Mommy still cries herself to sleep a lot of nights. So, we thought this adorable little pendant at $7.99 was a great memorial gift. 

 

15.  This jaguar Key Chain is a must. After all, doesn’t everypawdy have at least one key? And it’s under $7.00 with free shippin’. 

 

So, there you have it…15 gifts on a budget. Now me knows the cat scratcher is a bit costly. But trust me, it’s worth every penny. 

 

Raena lays on chair back

 

 

 

          It is sissy. And, I’s know we’re hopin’ one finds it way to our house. Even ifin you hadn’t hurled all over ours, we’ve purretty much scratched it to death, on all sides. Altho’ I’s still think some of the bestest gifts don’t cost a thing. I’s know fur a fact that mommy’s never been happier than when I’s gave her a few slow blinks and purrs. 

 

You’re right Raena. Even budget items are ‘spensive when you don’t have any green papers. And it’s fur that very reason, that we always, always include our thoughts on the purrfect purriceless gifts. A hug and a kiss and a me luvs you can’t be beat. A flower from the garden can make any mother smile.

 

          I’s heard it could even be a weed ifin it’s given with luvs sissy. 

 

Dezi and Raena look out window from atop the cat tree

 

 

 

That’s true Raena. Anyways, we hope we’ve helped you find some last minute gifts guaranteed to arrive by Christmas. More ‘purrtantly, we wanna fank you all fur your luv. You’ve given us the greatest gift anyone can give. We luv and cherish each and every one of you. And it’s our purrayer that you receive all you need and all you want today and every day. 

 

          That’s fur sure sissy. We’re also linkin’ up with Comedy Plus fur Feline Furiday. 

 

And don’t furget to join the Blessing Train.

 

Till the next time……………………………………………….Be Blest!!!
