Chatting Cats: Raena Has A Virtual Play Date

(Taking you all back in time to last Thursday when mommy went to her dental surgery appointment and we, her beloved Service Cats, stayed home. Dezi was left in charge and Raena had pre-arranged a virtual play date with Simon of Brian’s Home Blog. The following events could have taken place during the hours of 11:00 AM and 7:00 PM

Sissy, mommy’s getting’ ready to leave. I’s don’t want her to leave me here. I’s wanna go with her.

(Raena begins to dance around and zoom thru the house and paw at her harness. In a last ditch attempt to make mommy change her mind and take her, she runs and jumps inside the stroller and pokes her head out the side and meows at mommy

 

 Dezi sits on scratcher

 

          RaenaBelle!!! Knock it off. Mommy has a good ride and will be fine. Besides, you have a play date to get ready fur. Simon will be here any minute now. 

 

 Raena bathes and plays on the floor

 

(Raena starts zooming thru the house again, and gathering up toys. She sits down to have a bath and meows at Dezi.Oh MeOW  I’s gotta floof up and have a quick bath. Sissy, will you put out the Yeowww toys, and maybe some of that yummy silvervine? Do all our ‘lectric toys have furesh batteries? Can you wave the wand toys fur us? Can we play on the Liberty Tree? Do you ‘member what Simon’s favorite treat is? Surely he’ll like our freeze dried chicken breasts. Maybe…

 

 Dezi lays on the Liberty Cat Tree and looks into the house

 

          Slow down Raena. Me plans on nappin’, not wand wavin’. There’s purrlenty of toys ‘round here fur ya’ll to play with. Maybe not the ‘lectric ones, me thinks you ran all the batteries down, and mommy hasn’t bought any more. Just ‘member the rules…No jumpin’ on me, chasin’ me or tryin’ to play with me’s tail. And pawsitively, NO funny business. You’re a respectable Southern Belle Lady cat and Simon be a very respectable gentlemancat; also from the South. 

 

No funny business? But I’s invited him over to play and have fun, sissy. 

 

          (Dezi shakes her head.)

          That’s not what…never mind. Ya’ll can have fun, just ‘member your manners to make mommy purroud. 

          (The doorbell rings and Raena jumps

 

Sissy, will you get the door? I’s found one of our silvervine sticks and I’s wanna clean it up and give it to Simon.

 

          (Dezi nods and heads for the door)

          Meowllo Simon. Glad you could come over and keep Raena busy while mommy’s away. Come on in and make yourself comfurtable. Mommy cleaned the fountains and put out furesh water, and she cleaned the litterboxes right befur she left. How’s the furmily?

 

 Dezi lays on floor with Simon

 

     Thanks Dezi. Everybody’s doing well, thanks for asking. I really appreciate you girls inviting me over for a play date. You know, my family doesn’t always appreciate my…energy and antics.

 

(Raena zooms into the living room and drops her silvervine stick in front of Simon. She blushes and coyly meows)

Do you like silvervine Simon? We luvs it. You can have this stick. We got a whole package fur Christmas. 

 

          Me’s gonna go to the back and have a nap. You two have fun.

 

 Raena plays with the Yeowww nip nanner while simon looks on

 

Fanky fanks sissy. C’mon Simon, do you like the Yeowww nip nanners? We’ve got 2, so we can each play with one. Feel furee to empty the toy basket, I’s do it all the time. MOL 

(Some hours later, Raena and Simon conspire to wake up Dezi to see if she wants to play with them)

You jump up from the far side of the bed and I’s’ll Jump on sissy from the pet steps.

(Simon jumps on the bed and Raena jumps on Dezi’s tail

 

          Hissssssssssssssss Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Me told ya’ll not to bother me. 

 

But sissy, we just wanted to see ifin you’d like to play?.

 

 Dezi lays on the bed surrounded by Raena and Simon of Brian's Home

 

          NO!!! Me doesn’t wanna play Raena. Me wants to take a nap in peace! Me thinks ya’ll have had too much nip and vine. Now both of ya’, go away and leave me alone.

 

 Raena and Simon lay on top of the Liberty Tree

 

     (Simon and Raena slink off back to the Liberty Tree)

     Oh Raena, your sisfur’s like mine. They don’t know what they’re missing. They just don’t appreciate a good game of tag. At least you only have 1 sisfur. I’ve got 6. And then there’s the one at the top of the landing behind bars. She’s so pretty, but she doesn’t even want me anywhere near her space. I think she’s in jail, but nobody seems to be interested in bailing her out. I’m only trying to help her when I go up to visit, but she doesn’t seem to want any visitors. Well, other than my mom and dad that is. Word is, she loves spending time with my dad. We all do. Our humans are pretty great. I’m really glad they decided to bring me and Seal inside. Ya’ know at first I wasn’t so sure about this inside living thing, but I’ve gotta admit, it sure is nicer than fending for yourself in the wild. And brother Brian’s pretty cool.

 

We luvs your furmily, Simon. Sorry your sisfurs are such killjoys. Ya’ know, sis Dezi and me could help ya’ spring Precious from jail. Word has it that sis Dezi and mine’s purredecessor Lexi, helped break a couple kitties outta the big house years ago.

 

     Thanks Raena, I’ll tell her. But I don’t think she wants to get sprung. Thanks for inviting me over. I had a great time. We’ll have to do this again sometime.

 

 Raena looks over from atop the Liberty Cat tree

 

Fanky fanks fur comin’ Simon. I’s had a great time. Havin’ company sure did help keep mine’s mind off the fact that mommy wasn’t here, and didn’t take me with her. Don’t furget to take your silvervine stick home. You’ll purrobably have to hide it or your fursibs might try to steal it. I’s found that they can’t steal it ifin ya’ hide it under the fridge or oven.

(Raena and Dezi say goodbye to Simon, and wait for mommy to come inside)

Fanky fanks fur lettin’ Simon come over sissy. We had a great time.

 

 Dezi and Raena on the Liberty Cat Tree

 

          Me’s glad ya’ll had fun Raena. And fanks fur not botherin’ me, Mostly.

          Well, there ya’ go. Things coulda happened this way, but the truth is…Raena has some real  seperation anxiety issues when it comes to mommy. Me heard furst hand, but mommy heard thru the grapevine, that Raena caterwauled almost the whole time mommy was gone. 

 

 

I’s don’t caterwaul sissy. I’s just missed mommy and wanted her to know I’s was thinkin’ ‘bout her. Fanky fanks to Brian and furmily fur lettin’ us borrow some fotos and blog our adventure. We hope you all have a pawsum day.

 

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

Blest Sunday: Moving in Slow Motion

(Mommy fumbles around in the kitchen making Dezi and Raena’s breakfast and mumbles something about the time)

Dezi lays in the wheelchair while Raena meows t her from the top of the stroller.

 

Hey, sissy? What’s mommy mumblin’ ‘bout? Is it already brekky time? I’s not sure I’s really hungry yet. I’s know I’s not ready to hunt. ketch and kill anythin’.

 

 Dezi sits on the brown cat tree in her signature pose

 

      Don’t let mommy hear you meowin’ that, we’ll never get brekky furst thing in the meownin’ again. Seems humans think they know better than God and change their clocks a couple times a year. 

 

Raena sits on the brown cat tree

What does that mean, they change the clocks? What does a clock have to do with anythin’? 

 

 Dezi on the small brown tree looking up

 

     Oh Raena, the clock has Eeeverythin’ to do with everythin’ humans do. Even our mommy. The clock tells them when to get up, when to go to sleep, when to work, when to eat…

 

When to eat?!!! Why don’t they just go on tummy time? It works fur us.? 

 

     Ya’ think? You wanna know a secret?

 

A secret? Of course I’s wanna know a secret. What is it?

 

 Dezi and Raena looking at each other over a few Yeowww toys

 

     Calm down, mommy’ll think you’re tryin’ to rush her. The secret is, we think we run on our tummy time. But the truth is, mommy programmed our tummy clocks to the humans clocks so that our tummy time alarm goes off at the time mommy wants it too. Mommy’s a sneaky one, ya know. 

 

     What? What are you meowin’ ‘bout sissy? Our tummies have clocks? Did mommy furget to change them last night? Cuz really, I’s not think I’s hungry yet. 

 

 Dezi and Raena checking out Yeowww toys

 

     Trust me, by the time mommy gets our brekky ready, you will be. The hands on the clock may have moved fast an hour, but mommy’s movin’ in slow motion. Happens fur ‘bout a week every time the time changes. ‘Specially since it’s turned cold again. 

(Dezi and Raena look over at mommy who looks a bit confused at where she was in preparing their breakfast)

     Don’t worry, she’ll figger it out. Did you see the cool colorin’ book mommy got yesfurday?

 

 Raena checking out the coloring book, painting and card from Dash Kitten

Mommy didn’t realize the painting was flipped over till she

loaded these fotos this meownin’. 😦

 

I’s sure did. We won that fur mommy from awnty Marjorie and the Dash Kitten Crew. It travelled across the whole world to get here. And ya’ know what? I’s could still smell the kitties. It was really nice meetin’ some of our furiends. Ya’ know gettin’ to smell ‘em like that, I’s feel like I’s know them in the fur.

 

 Raena sniffs card from Dash Kitten while standing on the coloring book

Fanky fank ya’. Mommy’s gonna have fun.

 

     Yep, I’s exchanged a few scents too. Fank ya’ll, mommy’s gonna have lots of colorin’ fun. And she put the little paintin’ on her desk so she could look at it every day.

 

Hey Dezi, don’t furget to tell everypawdy ‘bout the fundraiser fur mommy. She got a big surprise this week.

 

 Dezi lays on top of cat tree ledge

 

     Yep Raena, she sure did. An Angel sent us $800.00 to our paypal this week. Ya’ know what that means? We’re ‘bout half way to our goal. Fank you soooooooooooooo much. Of course mommy cried, cuz she was so grateful. You know, mommy hates that she needs help. Askin’ others to help us, is purrobably her least favorite thing. She’s always said she’d do whatever she had to in order fur us to get what we need, but when it comes to herself, she’d rather go without. But what’s goin’ on with her teethies is really bad and we’re desperate. That’s why we started the fundraiser fur her. We need our mommy to be here and as healthy as she can be to take care of us. Even ifin she moves in slow motion. She’s our slow motion mommy and we luv her. Ifin you’d like to donate, you can do so directly to our Paypal at: lexi(dot)dezi(at)yahoo(dot)com (fur your copy and paste convenience: lexi.dezi@yahoo.com), or at the fundraiser here.

 

     We also wanna say fank you to awnty Petal. She and mommy met thru sis Lexi on facebook, and they be like sisfurs. Awnty Petal be family and we luv her. Ya’ know when mommy got really really sick back when our ‘pawrtment flooded, awnty Petal called the pawlice to come check on mommy. That might not seem like a big deal till ya’ know, awnty Petal lives across the big pond. We are so blest to have so many wonderful and caring furiends.

 

 Raena in tiger kitty holster cat harness

 

We sure are sissy. And don’t furget, awnty Vonda sent money so mommy could buy you a new harness and leash just like mines. We’ll be stylin’ together.

 

     Sure nuff. Fank you awnty Vonda, me can’t wait. Altho’ mommy did say me had to wait till she felt a little better so she could focus and order the right thing. Seems she can’t make out the numbers on the measurin’ tape right now. MOL Anyways, we are so fankful fur all of you; and we feel so blest to have you in our lives. Don’t furget to take a minute today and every day to give fanks fur the blessings in your lives. 

 

 Raena looks over from atop the Liberty Cat tree

Blest Sunday: A Walk Down Memory Lane Blogoversary

(Dezi jumps up on mommy’s lap and Raena follows suit.)

Hey Raena, me was here furst.

          I’s want some luvvin’ too sissy. 

 

 Dezi lays in mommy's lap and gets lovingIt’s me’s Blogoversary and me was gettin’ luvvin’ furst.

 

 

Wait your turn. Me’s here now and me’s gonna write me’s Blogoversary posty. 

 

 

          Well sissy, mommy says it’s our Blogoversary.

 

Dezi sits and poses in a reflection frame of purple and gray

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. 

 

 Dezi and Raena in purple frame with grayscale applied and reflections

 

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.

 

 Starry eyed Lexi in a multicolor frame of pinks, purples an turquoise.Sis Lexi was the only one old enuff to have a Facebook account.

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.

 

 Dezi lays in mommy's lap and gets loving

 

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.

Timmy Tomcat and Dezi dance at a Cat Scout eventYep, dat’s Timmy and me dancin’. Me learned a lot ’bout

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.

 

 Lexi in a peaceful cloud frame with a dove

 

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.

 

 Raena in square gradient frame

 

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.

Blest Sunday: Dezi and Raena’s Top 10 Purrfect Gifts Guide for 2016

Hey, are ya’ll there? Actually, are ya’ here? It’s RaenaBelle, and we’ve got a real treat for all of you today. We’re going to post the Purrfect Gift Guide for 2016. Yep, that’s right. Ifin you were here Furiday, you know that sis Dezi and me had different ideas ‘bout what to call our guide. Well, we meowed about it yesfurday and came up with what we think is the purrfect name for our guide. Now, we’re not saying the other guides, especially those posted by our furiends aren’t great; we’re just saying there are some peeps and anipals that can’t afford items on those guide lists. Like us. So, we put our heads together and came up with gifts we think everybody and furry would like. Okay, so maybe there are a couple things that some of our furry feral furiends might not appreciate, but there’ll for sure be some things on our list that even they will like. You might have noticed that for the most part, I’s been writin’ in human English. Well that’s because we want all our furiends and followers to be able to read our guide. Right sissy?

 Raena's selfie

       That’s right Raena. We have put together the purrfect gift guide for peeps and anipals alike and we want everyone to choose at least a few things from our list. We know the posty looks long, but it’s a lot of fotos. Purrlease stay till the end, because we have a real surprise for all of you. So Raena, are you ready with your first gift? 

I is sissy, sure enough. I’s want to start the list with a freebie but goodie.

Raena lap selfie

1. A Big, Gigantic hold on with both arms, hands and paws HUGGY. No air hugs allowed. Only the real thing. You can hold on as long as you want. The longer the better, right?. Left hugRight hug

I’s know, we have a few furiends who be a little on the feral side and won’t really like this one, but wait, there’ll be something for ya’ll too.

 Dezi puckering mouth and holding head up for a kiss

 Kissy kiss mommy?!!

 

 

2. Pucker up and KISS the one(s) you love. Send a kiss 

       Mommy kisses us all the time, and we love it. Again, No Air Kissing allowed. Well unless you’d get your face scratched off. In that case, we’re all for Blowing those anipals or peeps a kiss.

 Raena in lap

 Kiss me mommy!!!

 

 

Oh sissy, I’s do love a big mommy kiss. That’s a great gift for our guide. And, another freebie. That brings me to the third gift on our list. And, even our more feral furiends will like this one.  

3. Say I Love You from your heart.

Look into the eyes or face of your anipal or peep and tell them how much you love and appreciate them. Us kitties will probably respond with a loving slow blink, doggies with a body shaking tail wag and peeps might actually say it back to you. And by the way, this is another freebie. It won’t cost you a cent.

 

Raena lap selfie

 I’s luvs you too mommy.

 

 Dezi and mommy hugging

 Me luvs you too mommy.

 

 

       Oh Raena, that’s a great one. Me so loves it when mommy tells us she loves us. That goes well with mes next item on our gift guide.

4. Call, Email or Text your loved ones and let them know you’re thinking about them.

       Say it even ifin ya’ get their voicemail. Sometimes a message from a furiend, can really make your day. Of course you could also send a snail mail card, but most of the time, we don’t even have money for a stamp, so calling, emailing or texting works better for us. Some of you travel and leave your anipals behind. We know your voice, and find it comforting, so calling up and telling us you love us lets us feel close to you.

 Raena learning to dial the phone.

 Meowllo? I’s just called to say…

 

 

Oh sissy, at less than .50 cents or free that’s another great idea. I’s couldn’t imagine mommy leaving us behind, but I’s would sure love to hear her voice ifin she wasn’t with us. Mines next item is a biggy.

5. Clean Up. That’s right, help somebody by cleaning their house. Anipals, put your toys away in the toy box.

You know, there are housekeeping tasks that be really hard on mommy, and we’re having a lot of trouble finding a helper, so she would really appreciate somebody helping her out. And guess what? It’s another Freebie!!!

 dw-dezi-with-vacsm

 Let me help you mommy.

 

 

       That’s a good one Raena. Me has another pawsum idea for our list.

6. Volunteer. Pick a day/days and head over to your local animal shelter and help clean cages, socialize kitties, walk dogs, or better yet, foster and/or adopt.

 

Mommy A waking Raena after her spay surgery

Oooooooooooooh sis Dezi, that’s a pawtastic gift. Anytime you can give to those less fortunate is a true gift of love. They could even volunteer at a spay/neuter clinic like mommy. Peeps could also take photos and share anipals on social media to help them find their furever homes. 

       Yep Raena. And they could even go through their toy boxes and donate any unused or gently used toys, beds, blankys, scratchers, outgrown collars/harnesses or food to the anipals in the shelter. Another freebie that takes advantage of your time and things you have around your house already.

Speaking of volunteering and time, I’s have another great gift idea sissy.

7. Visit a hospital or nursing home.

 

Raena in stroller looking out the back

The holidays are really hard on a lot of peeps and anipals, and sometimes those in nursing homes get forgotten. Just a few minutes of your time can bring a smile to their faces and really make their days. Ifin any of you furries are calm in nature, the holidays is the one time of year when the rules get a little lax and even though you’re not a certified therapy anipal, you might still be able to visit. Purrlease check with the nursing home before you visit to find out the rules/policies. 

Dezi visiting while in the stroller

Visitin’ da pharnacy

       You’re right Raena, that is a good one. You and mommy will be heading to the nursing home before long. They’re going to love you. So far we’ve got a lot of great gifts in our line up. But maybe, you want something tangible to put under the tree, right? So here’s the next item for your gift giving pleasure.

 

 

8. Write it down and Wrap it up. Grab a post it, old bill envelope, old receipt, or any piece of scrap paper, and write a little note telling the recipient to redeem it for a HUG, KISS, or Whatever. Get Creative and then wrap it in whatever you can find.

       Gentlemen listen up, mommy says whatever you do, don’t wrap your note in a small ring box or “the blue box”. Ladies get too excited with expectation. Even the most loving woman can become a total stranger when she doesn’t find a/”that” ring inside. MOL  As for wrapping paper, mommy’s used old calendar pages (picture side of course), newspapers, brown paper grocery bags, old manilla envelopes, and that packing paper that comes in chewy boxes makes great wrapping paper. And a box in a box in a box can add fun to your hand written gift.

 Hug Note Kiss Note

That’s a great idea for peeps Dezi. I’s have one now for the furries.

9. Filled and Tied Old Sock. Filling: Newspaper, Packing Paper, Garden Grown fresh dried Catnip, Foil, Parchment Paper, Another Old Sock. Paper Items will make a fun crinkle toy, while Material Items will make a fun bite toy.

       Good one Raena. Peeps might even check their pets toy boxes for old balls, toys and squeakers that we don’t play with anymore and stuff them down inside that sock. The possibilities are endless. Just use your imagination. And mommy says every sock drawer has a mismatched sock left over from the washer eating it’s pair. Hmmmmm Me didn’t know we had to feed the washer too. No wonder we don’t have any green papers. MOL  Me has another item that’s a favorite for lots of kitties.

 Dezi and Raena laying on the Liberty Cat Tree

 Oh Dezi this guide thing is so much fun.

You’re right Raena. Me’s glad we did it.

 

 

10. MILK JUG RING.

Oh sissy, that’s the cool piece of plastic that locks the lid on the bottle of milk, juice, vitamins and jugs of water.

 

       Yep Raena, and they can be wrapped up and put under the tree or even hung on the tree for decoration.

 

 Raena biting light on Christmas tree

 Hmmm What’s this? This blonky doesn’t taste very good,

but it sure looks like fun.

 

 

Decorations? Speaking of trees sissy, I’s love our tree. The lights are so cool. They blink off and on, off and on. I’s loved them so much, I even tried to eat a few.

 

 

       Me knows. Mommy says ifin you can’t behave she’ll have to take the tree down. So purrlease sissy, leave the tree alone. Let’s just watch the pretty lights flash.

 

 

I’s’ll try sissy, I’s promise. Anyways, we hope ya’ll liked our Top Ten Gift ideas. We know you’ll find at least one thing for everybody/furry on your list. Now…

 

 

       Everybody come in real close. We wanna give you all our gifts to you.

(Dezi, Raena and mommy A gather together and grasp arms and pull each furiend and furry/furless furiend in for a Huge Hug and a Big Kiss. They then look into each friends eyes/face and…)

We Love you soooooooooooo much. We are soooooooooooo grateful to have you in our lives. We want to say Thank You for being You. You mean so much to us that we can’t truly express it in human words.

(Dezi and Raena each slow blink and purr to each furiend. While mommy A takes each by the hand and in true Southern Belle fashion, offers a curtsey in honor of their greatness and furiendship.)

Blest Sunday Cat Beds

Meowllo everypawdy and welcome to another Blest Sunday. Me has sooooooooo much to tell ya’ there’s no way me can tell it all today. You know me’s a little chatty and long winded but me’s sure you all don’t have da time to read a book today. So me will have to break up all me’s news into a few postys. So let me see…where should me start?

 Dezi atop the cat tree

About a week or so ago we got a pawsum box from awnty Mary Beth, uncle Garth, Gizmo and da gang. Now me had never had a cat bed, me hadn’t even seen one till a couple years ago when they sent me and sis Lexi our furst kitty bed. Mommy figgered we would never use one cuz we sleep in da big bed with her; so she was a little afraid dat she wouldn’t have any fotos to post of us enjoyin’ those beds. But guess what? We luvved ‘em, ‘specially me. You’ve seen me’s video. In case ya’ haven’t, check it out below. Ifin ya’ can’t see it there, click here.

Anyways, back to now and da box we recently got from awnty Mary Beth. Mommy opened da box and inside was a couple of coffee related gifts fur mommy’s birthday and these 2 huge black trash bags. Now wait a minute. Let me tell ya’ me thinks mommy was just as ‘xcited ‘bout da trash bags as she was ‘bout da coffee stuffs. So mommy emptied da box and those trash bags and lo and behold there was 2 brand new bootyful cat beds. In case ya’ couldn’t make it out in da video above, me has literally massaged and suckled those old beds till there ain’t any of da softy fleece on a few sides. So awnty Mary Beth had decided to send me a new one. But wait…she sent two kitty beds ‘stead of one? Dat was pawsumly nice of her, but me can only sleep in one at a time, so me isn’t sure why she sent me two beds?.

Dezi sniffs new cat bed from Gizmo and the gang

What’s dat mommy? Oh da second bed is fur me’s new sisfur? Well doesn’t awnty Mary Beth know we’re havin’ trouble findin’ one? Ya’ know a couple of shelters and rescues wouldn’t even talk to us once they found out we didn’t live in da same city/town as them. A couple of da rescues charged over $200 fur their adoption fees but they didn’t have any kitties anyways. And then ‘member dat rescue dat insisted you adopt two kitties? Of course they threw ya’ a bone by givin’ ya half off on da second kitten, but as much as you might like to have three kitty’s da ‘pawrtment manager would kick us out. And then of course there’s da two kitties (different kitties/litters/peeps) we thought was gonna be ours who died befur you could get down da road to pick them up. We already wrote ‘bout one of them.

 Dezi checks out new cat bed

What’s dat mommy? Yes, she knows? Me’s new sisfur will arrive when she’s ‘posed too?. Well okay, in da meantime, me will just break both these beds in, okay? Well me’s sendin’ out a meowsy big fank you to awnty Mary Beth, uncle Garth, Gizmo and da gang. Me luvs da new kitty beds and me’s sure me’s new sisfur will think da same thing. What a blessing our furiends are. We are so thrilled to have all of you in our lives.  We thank God and ask Him to look out fur and bless you all everyday. ‘Member today and everyday to take a minute to count da blessings in your life.

 Dezi inspects the new cat bed from Gizmo and the gang

Me would like to take a minute to tell ya’ll ‘bout this pawsum new Cat Dancer toy. You all know dat me discovered this great toy recently. Mommy had never bought me one cuz she didn’t know what to do with it. It’s a wire with some cardboard tubes but no handle fur mommy to use to play with me. Recently da company created a new Cat Dancer with a handle. And not just any handle but one dat could be clipped to a cage so dat shelter kitties could enjoy it and have a little play time while waiting fur their furever homes. They’ve started a Kickstarter campaign to raise da money fur purrduction. And ifin ya’ support da campaign you can even get your very own. Ifin you’re innerested you can check it out here. You know spendin’ so much time in shelters and rescues lately made mommy ‘member dat a lot of these kitties get very little inneraction day in and day out and even fewer get to play, so we luv this idea and wish da Cat Dancer peeps da bestest of luck. Me wouldn’t mind havin’ one of these meself.

Me’s joinin’ da Kitties Blue fur Sunday selfies. Ifin ya’ like takin’ selfies, ya’ might wanna link up too. Me’s gonna go break in one of da new kitty beds now, so we’ll see ya’ soon.
