Blest Sunday: Tactful/less Chatting Cats

(Mommy clears away the breakfast dishes and Dezi heads up the Liberty tree with Raena in pursuit. Dezi reaches the top first and turns and hisses at Raena who reaches out and swipes Dezi’s back leg.)

Quit tryin’ to trip me Raena!!!


 Dezi and Raena on cat tree and Raena sticks her tongue out

Are you stickin’ your tongue out at me?


          Well then quit hissin’ at me sissy.


Raena hanging on the Liberty cat tree playing whacky paw with Dezi

Me didn’t hiss at ya’ till ya’ tried to trip me.


          Well, what ‘bout earlier?


You jumped on top of me Raena. Wha’d ya’ expect me to do?.


          I’s just wanted to play sissy.


 Dezi bathing on top of the Liberty cat tree


You always wanna play Raena. Ya’ know sometimes it’s nice to just lay back and take a nap. Or fur instance, after a meal, some of us like to wash up.


 Raena bathes on the Liberty cat tree


          I’s like a good nap as much as any kitty sissy, and cleanin’ up is a must. ‘Specially ifin I’s wanna ketch the attentions of a certain sweet boy cat. But mine’s neck furs always get caught in mine’s mouth. They seem to always be in mine’s way. Do you have that purroblem sissy? 



Dezi plays with Christmas gifts

Me did when me was a little baby kitty girl Raena, but not so much anymore. Your neck ruff is longer than me’s is. But me’s bloomers are longer than yours. And me’s whiskers are longer than yours too.



 Raena profile from the back of the chair


          You don’t know that fur sure, sissy. Mommy says mine’s whiskers are purrlenty long. I’s just keep getting’ into things and breakin’ off the ends. 


Yep, mommy hates it when ya’ do that. She says our whiskers are very m’purrtant, and we should take care of them.


          I’s saw her pickin’ one up off the carpet the other day. Does she plan on tryin’ to glue it back on me or somethin’?


No silly. Mommy just luvs us so much she likes to keep those whiskers we shed. She’s got a jar full of ‘em fur each kitty she’s ever luvved. Me knows it sounds really strange, but she is only human after all. And those humans do some really weird stuffs sometimes. 


          No kitten sissy. Those whiskers ain’t gonna do her any good. Mommy’s wider than even your whiskers. (Raena snickers under her breath



Dezi pats Raena on the head

(Dezi lets out a little giggle and then gets serious)

RaenaBelle Maycee!!!

(Dezi tries to hold back the grin and laugh growing inside her)

You should be ashamed of yourself. That’s not nice. 


          What? I’s was just meowin’ the truth. Mommy says we should always tell the truth, no matter what.


We should Raena. But sometimes, you just shouldn’t meow anythin’, ‘specially ifin the truth isn’t nice or would hurt somepawdy’s feelings.


          Nope sissy, that’s not what mommy says. I’s purretty sure she says to always tell the truth, even ifin it hurts.


 Dezi lays on top of the Liberty tree looking down



Raena, you’re still young and haven’t learned everythin’ just yet. There’s this thing called tact. It’s the way you meow those not so nice truths so that you don’t hurt anypawdy’s feelings.


           Oh yeah? Well then just how would you meow that mommy’s wide.


Uh, well, uhm, (Dezi meowmbles under her breath) You just don’t meow it Raena. That’s how ya’ meow it, you just don’t.


          Well that’s no fun. Hey, did you hear mommy talkin’ ‘bout her big ‘pointment tomorrow?


Yep, me sure did. It’s gonna be a long night. Her ‘pointment’s early in the meownin’, so she’ll have to stay up all night to be able to go. Me’s kinda hopin’ she takes you. Me would have the whole house all to me’s self. Me could nap and bathe and do all kinds of things in peace and quiet. Least fur a little while.


 Raena in tiger kitty holster


          I’s hope she takes me too. I’s can show off mine’s purretty new harness and leash. And what do you mean, peace and quiet? We won’t be gone fur very long. But I’s not loud. The neighbors are loud. But not me.


You sure could, Raena. And yes, the neighbors are loud, but you can be too. Anyways, that’s the plan. When mommy’s gettin’ ready to go, you need to dance ‘round and drag out your harness, so mommy’ll know you wanna go really bad. ‘Course that also means that mommy’s gonna be really tired. So me told her we could skip our regular Service Cat Monday posty this week. But just this once.


          But we’ll be back on Wednesday, right sissy?


Absolutely Raena. And we’ll have somethin’ on Wednesday that nopawdy’s gonna wanna miss.


 Raena enjoys a LumaSoothe treatment


          We’re havin’ a give away too, aren‘t we sissy? This will be mine’s furst give away ever. I’s so excited I’s can’t hardly wait.



 Dezi enjoys a LumaSoothe treatment while laying in mommy's lap

That’s right, Raena. We’ve kinda been teasin’ everypawdy with an occasional foto. And furinally, the day has come to meow all ‘bout it. You know, we are so blest. Bein’ Influencers allow us oppurrtunities we might not otherwise get. We really do like tryin’ out new things to tell our furiends ‘bout. But the greatest blessing we have are our furiends.


          I’s agree sissy. I’s luvs our furiends so much. Did you see that we got another donation fur mommy’s dental fundraiser? We so wanna say fanky fank ya’ to our furiends over at Hairballs and Hissyfits. Ifin ya’ haven’t met Amarula, Frodo and Zulu, you should go by and check ‘em out. And ifin you would like to help mommy get her much needed dental work done, you can donate directly through paypal without any fees. Just use our email,, or you can also donate through the fundraiser by clickin’ here. We really purreciate all those who have helped so far. We’re ‘bout half way to our goal and mommy’s mouth feelin’ all better. Hopefully, she’ll be smilin’ again real soon. She’s a little embarrassed to smile right now, and the air makes her teeth hurt worse; so she tries to keep her mouth shut most of the time.


 Dezi lays in lap and gets loving


Those things are all true Raena. But we are blest to have a mommy that still puts us furst, no matter how she feels. And we’ve been blest with some nice Spring weather this comin’ week. That means lots of strolls fur us. We can hear the birds singin’ and the wind blowin’ the furesh new leaves that are growin’ on the trees outside. Mommy says we’re in fur at least one more cold snap befur Spring furinally arrives to stay. You know, each day is a gift, a blessing to celebrate just bein’ alive. We are so fankful to have so much luv in our lives. ‘Member to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. No matter how bad things might seem, there is always a blessing just waitin’ to be found.


 Raena lays in mommy's lap


          And don’t furget the Sunday Selfies with the Kitties Blue sissy. Maybe a couple of those Wednesday teaser fotos would be good. We hope you’ll all stop by to find out what it is.


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

Blest Sunday: The Cuteness of Kittens

Well Raena, as always, everypawdy thought you were the cat’s meow in the bobble hat. 


 Raena looks up at mommy while wearing the bobble hat


          I’s know sissy. I’s just too cute, ain’t I?. This was the favorite foto of that posty.



Baby Dezi sits in the chair and poses for the camera

 This is me, Dezi, da day me came to live with mommy and sis Lexi.

Really bad 35mm camera shot. Oh how times have changed.


You know, there was a time when peeps couldn’t get enuff of me either. There’s just somethin’ ‘bout a kitten that peeps just go gaga over. There’s even a day this month called cuddly kitten day.


 Dezi the kitten lays on the top ledge of the 3 tier cat tree

That’s me, sweet Dezi at about 3 months old. Yeah, da

redhead is mommy, and so is da baby in da black & white foto.



          Really sissy? You know, I’s glad peeps like me and all, but there are so many kitties in the world that don’t have luvvin’ furever homes. I’s might not have enjoyed mine’s “spa day”, but I’s so fankful that mommy cares enuff ‘bout me to make sure that I’s the healthiest I’s can be, and not makin’ more baby kittens to end up homeless or worse.


 Raena laying on the nip mat after her spay day

I’s hope I’s never have to do dat again. Dat “spa day” wasn’t any fun.

But mommy says I’s’ll be healthier now.


Yep Raena, an unaltered animal is more purrone to serious health issues. And those cute cuddly kittens grow up. Mommy says we’ll always be her cute cuddly babies, but amazinly enuff there are peeps out there that don’t feel that way. We’ll never unnerstand how somepawdy could throw away their beluvved baby, but it happens every day. Now we know we’re purreachin’ to the choir here, but just in case, Purrlease Spay and Neuter your pets, and support in any way you can, TNR efforts.


          We are so very blest to have our mommy, and belong to a community of like minded peeps and anipals. We may not agree on everythin’, but we can all agree Spay/Neuter be the way to go.


Sure ‘nuff Raena. And while you might be kitten like fur a few more years, you’ve got a birthday comin’ up fast.


 RaenaBelle bunny kicks a chicken leg

Ain’t I’s cute? I’s knew I’s hit da jackpot da minute I’s saw mommy.


          Does that mean we’ll have a pawrty? Are birthday’s like Christmas? When is mine’s birthday, sissy? Will I’s…. 


 RaenaBelle travels to her forever home in mommy's lap


Slow down Raena. Yes, we’ll have a pawrty. We’ll celebrate all month long. Birthday’s aren’t really like Christmas, but they do come ‘round every year. And your birthday is April 21st. That’s how we knew fur sure, you were meant to live with mommy and me. Your birthday is one week earlier than sis Lexi’s had been. When mommy found out your birthday, she unnerstood why she had been havin’ trouble findin’ a new helper fur me. Y, you hadn’t even been born yet. God has a plan and a time fur everythin’.


          You mean you and mommy were waitin’ fur little ole me?


Yes Raena, we were. But don’t let it go to your head. We were blest to have found you. And you…


          And I’s blest ya’ll found me. Really, I’s was. I’s got to be the luckiest most blest kitty girl in the universe. I’s got a great mommy, the bestest sisfur ever, and more furiends than I’s can count. And toys, lots and lots of toys. Mostly, I’s blest to be luvved so much.


Dezi and mommy hugging

Yep Raena, we’re fur sure blest. We wanted to update everypawdy on the fundraiser fur mommy. Mommy received a check fur $2,000.00 towards her dental this week. Fank you so much awnty Anonymous Angel and Kitties. Every dollar gets us that much closer to our goal and mommy bein’ able to get her teeth purroblems fixed. Ifin you can/want to donate to help mommy, you can do so on the fundraiser here, or by sendin’ directly through Paypal. Our Paypal donation email address is: That’s lexi (dot) dezi (at) yahoo (dot) com. Ifin ya’ can’t send money, we sure would purreciate it ifin you would share the fundraiser and purray fur us. And another meowsy big fank you to awnty Petal.


Dezi gets LumaSoothedMe’s a happy kitty even tho you can’t see me’s face. Guess

you’d call this a back of head selfie. MOL

We don’t count our furiends with dollar signs. And we purray fur all of you every day. No matter how gloomy the day, or what you might be goin’ thru, furiends can make the sun shine in your life.

mommy’s holdin’? It’s comin’ up soon.


          And don’t furget to check out the Sunday Selfies over at the Kitties Blue. We don’t really take selfies here, but mommy does get a lot of close up shots of us. So even ifin you’re not a selfie taker, you can still link up.


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

Blest Sunday: Having Fun and Saying Thanks

(Dezi’s crouched down behind the chair, her tail twitching and flicking from side to side and eyes wide, waiting for Raena to saunter past)


          (Raena looks about from the dining room for Dezi. She chortles her frustration.)

 Raena standing up at the back of the chair

Where’s sissy mommy?




     Girls. It’s time for Blest Sunday. Are ya’ll gonna write a post today or play tag? 

          (Raena comes charging toward the chair and mommy chirping the whole way

Dezi lays in mommys lap for some loving

(With one last ripple of the skin and tail flick, Dezi jumps out at Raena. Both girls briefly hiss and then run to mommy) Of course we’re gonna write a Blest sunday posty, mommy. We wouldn’t miss it. 


          I’s wanna write the posty, sissy.


You wrote the last posty Raena. It’s mes turn. ‘Member, it’s mes name on the blog.

Furst up today we wanted to say a meowsy big Fank you to those who have sent money fur mommys teeth purroblems. Most donations have come through the fundraiser, but we did get a couple directly to our paypal at Fank you awnty Petal, awnty Carol, awnty Cindy, awnty Julie, and those Anonymous awnties and uncles that donated. We currently have $570.00 towards what we need. Even ifin mommy had the work done in stages, we still don’t have enuff to cover the cost of the removal of those teeth that are causing all the pain and infection. That cost is $1320.00. But cuz that would leave mommy with only 2 teeth on the bottom, that appointment also included partials so she would be able to eat, speak right and so on, fur a total cost of $3598.00. You can read the posty where mommy talked ‘bout what’s needed here. Some of you have asked ‘bout antibiotics and such. Cuz mommy didn’t make a follow up appointment to have the work done, the dentist didn’t give mommy anything, that’s a common purractice here. Mommys regular doctor told her to see a dentist, again, common purractice here. So we’re doin’ what we can and takin’ it one day at a time. We feel very blest to have each other and all of you.

Dezi and Raena look outside from their perches near the door.

We are so fankful fur all your purrs, purrayers, luv and support. We feel so blest to have so many amazin’ furiends.


          Hey sissy, don’t furget ‘bout mines new harness. Fanky fank you awnty Vonda fur sendin’ the green papers to get me a new harness. Cuz mommy was a little under the weather last week, she hasn’t had a chance yet to measure me and get it ordered, but she says it’s on the agenda this week. And, we met a really nice purrson who came by to apply fur the job to help mommy ‘round the house.


Yes, Raena, we did, but we’re not gonna say anythin’ more till the word comes back and this purrson actually starts workin’ fur us. No, we’re not superstitious, but we’ve been here too many times and it’s not worked out, so we’re just bein’ cautious.


          (Raena suddenly jumps up and zooms through the house and jumps up on Dezi) Cautious. Hmmpht


 Dezi and Raena eat

(Dezi hisses and raises her paw as if she was going to whack Raena) Yes, Raena, cautious. You’re too young to understand some things, so just take it from me and keep quiet. And quit jumpin’ on me. That’s not very nice ya’ know. We better rap it up and finish brekky.


 Raena sleeping on mommys lap

          The sun’s shinin’ and it’s kinda warm outside. Reckon’ mommy will take us fur a stroll? 


Raena, the wind’s blowin’ so hard out there we’d get blown off the sidewalk. In other words, purrobably not. Fankfully we have a home to stay in so we don’t have to get blown all over. And we’re blest to have a mommy who luvs us, and all our amazin’ furiends. Purrlease ‘member to take a minute today and everyday to give thanks fur the many blessings in your life. We don’t really do selfies so much, but we’re joinin’ the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. Now, me has a lesson to teach to Raena ‘bout jumpin’ on unsuspectin’ kitty girls.


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