(Mommy fumbles around in the kitchen making Dezi and Raena’s breakfast and mumbles something about the time)
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’.
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.
What does that mean, they change the clocks? What does a clock have to do with anythin’?
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?
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.
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?
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.
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.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org), 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.
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.
Looks like mommy’s furinally got our brekky ready, sissy. Let’s link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and go eat. I’s sure nuff hungry now.
Till the next time……………………………………………Be Blest!!!

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?
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.
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?.
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.
Kissy kiss mommy?!!
2. Pucker up and KISS the one(s) you love.
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.
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.
I’s luvs you too mommy.
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.
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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.)
I’s been learning so much about Christmas, and all the things that go with it. You’ll have to stay tuned for our letters to Santa. They’ll be coming up later this week. In the meantime, we’re joining the Kitties Blue for Sunday Selfies. And…
Till the next time………………………………….Be Blest!!!

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?
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?.
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.
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.
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.
Do you (your kitties) like cat beds?
If you (your kitties) like cat beds, do you have a favorite shape and/or material?
Till da next time……………………………………..Be Blest!!!
