Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We’ve got a cool new ride!!!
Raena, what are you doin’? You know we try to save our blessings fur our Blest Sunday postys.
I’s too x’cited, sissy. You can save what you wanna meow ‘bout it till Sunday ifin ya’ want. But, I’s meowin’ ‘bout it today. I’s been ridin’ in that cramped old carrier fur too long. We’ve had a few sunny days that were great fur strollin’, but here we sat hangin’ in the house ‘stead of out enjoyin’ the furesh air and huntin’ fur bunnies.
And whose fault is that?
It’s not all mine’s fault sissy. Besides, it’s not like it was in purristine condition when I’s was born. Mommy said you and your sis Lexi had already broken the board that went across the bottom cuz ya’ll were too heavy fur it. And like ya’ll, I’s never would’a broke the stroller on purrpuss; I’s luvs goin’ fur strolls with mommy too much.
Well at least we could still use it when sis Lexi and me snapped the bottom board. When you broke it, there was no more strollin’ fur any kitty. Me sure did miss it. When me was little and used to go with mommy, me always had to ride in that cramped carrier. You got lucky and came here long after we were already enjoyin’ the fureedom the stroller gives us. So the way me sees it, is that you were just payin’ your dues like all the Service kitties befur you. Anyways, me’s glad we got a new ride too. And this one shouldn’t break. Me heard mommy say it could hold up to 75 pounds. That means both of us can ride at the same time.
Uh, Mommy?! It’s really big, but I’s can still jump in on mine’s own.
And we could even gain a few pounds. MOL That Gen7 Pets makes a mighty fine stroller. It’s so comfy. And did you see that our tires are bigger than the ones on mommy’s wheelchair? I’s bet there ain’t nowhere we can’t go now. Ya’ know, Oklahoma has a lot of really bad roads and sidewalks. And we’ve got lots of dirt and holes too. That kind’a terrain can be hard on wheels and tires. Mommy says the wheels on our new stroller were meant fur that stuff. It is called a jogger after all.
Yeah Raena, and me can’t wait to go fur our furst stroll. We were s’posed to go yesfurday, but it took mommy a little longer to put it together than she x’spected; and we got a late surpurrise notice ‘bout a inspection fur today. That meant mommy had to try to do a little cleanin’ last night. Needless to say, she didn’t get much done, we should’a went fur that stroll instead.
That sure is a long way down.
I’s agree, sissy. Ya’ know, a lot of our furiends are gettin’ strollers of their own. Wouldn’t it be cool ifin we could all for fur a stroll together? We get asked a lot ‘bout whether or not we would recommend peeps gettin’ their kitties a stroller. And we totally think they’re a great way fur kitty to spend some time in the great outdoors while still bein’ safe. And, takin’ kitty fur a stroll even lets our peeps get a little exercise. We do recommend doin’ your homework befur buyin’ one tho’. Ya’ wanna make sure it’ll hold kitty and be sturdy enuff fur kitty to feel safe. We much purrfur the 3 wheeled strollers to those rickety 4 wheelers. Not only do they look sleeker, they maneuver better. As fur whether or not to get one with a zipper closure or velcro, we can only meow ‘bout what we know. We’ve only had zipper ones, and we really do recommend the Gen7 strollers. Our old stroller had gaps t’ween where the zipper ended and met the suppurrt bars. And anypawdy who knows kitties knows, ifin kitty can fit their head thru a space, they’ll squeeze their whole body thru somehow.
That’s so true Raena. More than once we’ve poked our head and front paws out the gaps on that stroller. Me has a feelin’ that’s not gonna be pawssible anymore. Me didn’t see any gaps in our new stroller. But just in case, it’s always good to tether kitty into the stroller with the purrvided D rings. Even the calmest of kitties can get spooked. Strollin’ should be fun. We also recommend keepin’ the stroller closed, least till kitty gets comfy enuff not to try to jump out. As fur the assembly required, ifin mommy can do it, anypawdy can. Usually it’s just a matter of attachin’ the wheels. You’ve just got to make sure everythin’ gets locked into place. ya’ don’t want a wheel fallin’ off on your furst stroll. And altho’ we luv that our stroller matches our eyes, color choice shouldn’t dictate the stroller you choose. Quality strollers usually only come in a few purrimary colors, like red, blue and black. That means there’s no purrple strollers fur us. You can get creative and trick yours out any way ya’ want.
Are we gonna do that with ours sissy? I’s not sure what that means ‘zactly, but I’s like the sound of it.
Mommy says we can Raena. Just ‘member, it’s gotta be tasteful. We are Southern Belles after all.
Tasteful huh? Are we gonna put treats all over it?
(Dezi shakes her head.) We’ll meow ‘bout it later Raena. Let’s just say a meowsy big Fank you to awnty Cindy and angel Maggie Meme fur our new ride and get ready to go fur a stroll.
I’s with ya’ sissy. Can we meow ‘bout what to call it too?
This is not a sponsored post. We received our new Gen7 Jogger from an amazing awnty and just thought we’d tell ya’ more ‘bout how to pick the right stroller fur your pets.
Till the next time……………………………………….Be Blest!!!

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. A muggy wet RaenaBelle. I’s so tired of these storms!!! I’s wanna see the sunshine again. And go fur strolls. And…
Raena, we’re all tired of the storms and ready fur some warmer weather. But, you went and broke the stroller, so there ain’t gonna be any strolls till we can get a new one.
I’s thought mommy was just kitten, sissy. I’s sure didn’t mean to break our stroller.
Me’s sure mommy knows you didn’t do it on purr-puss. After all, me doesn’t think any kitty’s ever luvved strollin’ more than you. Me luvs strolls, but me thinks you could do it all day every day. Besides, we’re just big kitties who need things that can actually hold up unner our weight.
Oh sissy, I’s do luvs a good stroll and spendin’ time with mommy. I’s think mommy could use with a good stroll and some furesh air. She seems so stressed lately.
Well Raena, all this dental stuff is really gettin’ to her. She thought she was almost finished and then they pop up and tell her, “Oh, by the way, when are you gonna schedule your appointment to have those 2 teeth we talked you into keepin’ fur crowns?” Mommy only kept ‘em cuz they told her those teeth were good and didn’t need any work and would help anchor her bottom denture.
Yeah, she was purretty upset on Monday when she got that mews. She told ‘em that ifin she’d been told the teethies were bad in the furst place, she would’a never kept ‘em. So, now she’s gotta figger out how to get ‘em pulled and change that bottom denture from a partial to a full. Seems it just never stops.
So true, Raena. She’ll be addin’ another 4 months fur purropurr healin’ to all this. Mommy said she couldn’t believe that nopawdy ever said anythin’ befur. After all, this thing has been goin’ on fur over a year now. But, there was a ray of sunshine in our Monday. We usually save these blessings fur Sunday’s posty, but it helped to pick up mommy’s spirit so, we wanted to say a meowsy big Fank you to awnty Ellen today.
Oh sissy, when mommy opened the box we got from awnty Ellen on Monday evenin’ she let out a squee like I’s never heard. I’s didn’t get it till you told me how much mommy luvs willow trees. We don’t have any, but willows be one of mommy’s faves, ‘specially the Pussy Willow.
Of course mommy’s fave would be the Pussy Willow. After all, it’s named after us kitties. Y, Even the blooms are called Catkins.
I’s don’t think it was named after us kitties, sissy. It doesn’t look anythin’ like a cat. Anyways, when mommy opened the box she saw a big bunch of those wrappin’ bubbles. Mommy luvs pawppin’ those things. But that wasn’t even the good pawrt. When mommy opened those bubbles, she found a whole bunch of Pussy Willow cuttings inside. ‘Course she had a good cry and then called up awnty Ellen to say fanky fank ya’. Then mommy hit google to see ifin she could grow her one of those Pussy Willow trees from the cuttings. She found that they’re s’posed to root easily in water so she put several stems in a jar of water and saved the rest fur decoration.
‘Course, awnty Ellen didn’t furget ‘bout us either. She included a couple of her Made With Luv toys just fur us. Ya’ know what else mommy learned ‘bout the Pussy Willow? She learned that the blooms are one of the furst signalers of spring. Ya’ couldn’t have known awnty Ellen, but gettin’ that box when we did made mommy’s day.
It sure did, sissy. We also had another little blessin’. Our story has been featured on Fear Free Happy Homes. We better wrap it up, mommy’s got another ‘pointment with the dentist today fur a fittin’. Fanky fank you all fur bein’ our furiends. you’re always in our thoughts and purrayers. We’re also sendin’ some extra purrayers to Shoko, awnty Jean and uncle Bill from the Canadian Cats. Our sweet meezer furiend Kali had to go to heaven yesfurday. She will be missed dearly.
Till the next time………………………………………….Be Blest!!!

(Dezi looks up from her breakfast and yawns. She looks around and sees Raena and mommy A yawning too. Mommy A takes a sip of her hot steamy coffee and Raena begins to cover her breakfast with the imaginary “dirt”, toys, tissue paper and anything else close by before heading to the cat tree for a bath and some bird t.v.. Dezi takes a few more bites of breakfast before meowing.) Me sure hopes we can get some sleep tonight.
(Raena stretches and meows) Me too sissy. I’s know we stayed up fur a good reason, but I’s sure am tired. You’re so tired you didn’t even run when the thunder clapped outside.
Thunder? Was that thunder? Me thought that was the neighbor again. Ya’ know, she’s been keepin’ her toddler grandson and he keeps escapin’ and comin’ over here to bang on our door or play in mommy’s garden.
I’s don’t know why he’d wanna play in the garden, sissy. Everythin’s dead now. Did you see him push his face against the door tryin’ to peek inside?
Yep Raena, his face was more smashed than yours. Who knew the human face could do that? MOL
Yeah sissy, (Raena shakes her head) fanky fank the cats he didn’t come in. He was puttin’ everythin’ in his mouth. Can you ‘magine how slobbery our toys would’a been?
(Dezi and Raena shudder.) Fank you mommy, fur not openin’ the door. MOL Hey, what did you think ‘bout the surpurrise box mommy got?
Oh MeOW What a box!!!
Oh sissy, I’s luvs it. Mommy was so x’cited. She cried and cried. She said they were the happy tears, and I’s sure they were. She also did a little jumpin’ ‘round. She only does that when she’s happy. That Valentine and awnty Kerry sure were sweet to send mommy a new bag. Somewhere along the way, it got delayed, but when it furinally got here, mommy was thrilled. What most peeps don’t know ‘bout mommy, is that befur her accident when she worked, she had a bag fur every occasion. Ya’ know, they were really nice bags, mommy was a bit of a bag snob she says. I’s don’t think mommy could be snobby ‘bout anythin’, but, she says that’s what peeps call it when you’re a bit purrticular ‘bout somethin’.
This is such a pawsum bag, ain’t it Raena?!!
Me ‘members some of those bags Raena. Unfurtunately, a few bags got peed in by sick kitties; and some kitty, not me, chewed the straps off one of her bags. Fankfully, we’re good kitties, so mommy’s new bag’s in no danger of bein’ chewed by us. We’ll just have to watch out fur the neighbors grandson. MOL What a blessing mommy got. Fank ya’ll bunches, we all luv the new bag.
We didn’t think our week could get any better, and then the fone rang with some really x’citin’ news. Mommy’s been fallin’ out of the bed and crawlin’ ‘round the house fur over 6 months waitin’ fur our new wheelchair. Ya’ know, uncle Sam doesn’t get in a hurry to do anythin’. But, it’s furinally happened!!! The new wheelchair is furinally here!!!
Oooooh It’s got a nice soft cushion too.
Yep Raena, that’s why we’re all so tired and sleepy. Well, that and the weather. Travis the wheelchair man wanted to come out furst thing in the meownin’ to deliver mommy’s new wheelchair. Since mommy can’t walk in the meownin’s and she can’t reach the door knob from the floor, we had to stay awake all night. Mommy won’t teach us to unlock the door, so we’re no help. We think the neighbor thought she was getting’ one too, cuz she’s been bangin’ on the walls at all hours of the day and night fur the last couple of days. And then, the weather went from below zero one day to the low 70’s the next. Now, ifin that don’t throw ya’ into a tailspin, me doesn’t know what will.
It’s soft alright sissy. I’s luvs it.
That’s all true sissy. But we sure are happy to have a wheelchair again. We’ll be meowin’ more ‘bout it in our Service Cat posty’s startin’ in February. Believe it or not, we got a ton of questions ‘bout addin’ a new powerchair when the last one broke. In the meantime, we’re just feelin’ really blest that mommy doesn’t have to crawl ‘round in the meownin’ any more. WooHoo
Hmmmmm Me thinks the arms just might be wide enuff
fur me to stand on.
Fur sure Raena. We’ve had another week of outta this world blessings. And, another week with the mostest pawsumest furiends in the universe. Fank you all fur bein’ a pawrt of our lives. We luv ya’ll sooooooooooo much. We wanna remind you to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives.
Don’t furget sissy, we’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. We’ve got some great wheelchair plandids and mommy’s new bag shots fur ya’. I’s think we oughtta finish brekky sissy and go take a nap with mommy. We’ve gotta take advantage of the quiet while it’s here.
Sure ‘nuff Raena. See ya’ll soon.
Till the next time…………………………………………Be Blest!!!
