MeOW C’mon Raena, it’s Blest Sunday, and we have lots of things to meow ‘bout today. As you know, today is mommy’s birthday and Memorial day weekend. This month has just flown by.
It sure has sissy. How old do ya’ think mommy is? Do ya’ reckon she’ll tell us this year?
All me knows Raena is that she’s old, as in wrinkles and gray hair and creakin’ bones old. Me’s not sure even she ‘members how old she is Raena. Ya’ know, they say the memory’s the furst thing to go. MOL
Oh sissy, I’s don’t think mommy would find that so funny. But, I’s do agree that mommy’s memory ain’t what it used to be. Anyways, I’s don’t really care how old she is, I’s just glad she’s our mommy. I’s do luvs her whole bunches. You know she always puts us furst. Y, she got some green papers fur her birthday and ended up spendin’ most of ‘em on us. Seems that Drs. Foster and Smith place had our Primal Freeze Dried Rabbit noms on sale fur half purrice. We don’t think we’ve ever seen ‘em that cheap anywhere. So, mommy used her special money to get us a few bags.
Yep Raena, we do have a good mommy, that’s fur sure. We do wanna say a meowsy big Fank you to awnty Vonda, awnty Susan, awnty Anonymous, and awnty Ingrid, Pipo and Dalton fur mommy’s birthday money. Mommy cried a lot of happy tears this past week.
She did sissy. And then she cried some more when she got the box from my kitty godmommy awnty Ellen. Mommy luvs exotic house plants. Rumor is that she used to have a whole house full. Anyways, one of her favorite plants is the maranta, better known as the purrayer plant cuz it closes it’s leaves at night to resemble praying hands. When mommy opened up the box from awnty Ellen, she saw the purrettiest purrple leaves pawppin’ out all over the place. ‘Course we had to check it out too. We could smell somethin’ emanatin’ from inside that box that really caught our attention. Sure nuff, awnty Ellen hadn’t furgotten ‘bout us. We got one of those furtastic pieces of silvervine toast each. I’s ‘member when Sammy modeled his fur their posty. That awnty Ellen is so clever. Who would’a thought ‘bout makin’ silvervine toast?
Me sure did enjoy that toasty Raena. You’re right ‘bout awnty Ellen. She is so very talented. We luv all her Made with Luv goodies. You slobbered all over your toasty and then tried to steal me’s one. Hmmmpht That wasn’t happenin’. MOL
You were s’posed to share sissy. ‘Stead, you flopped your floofy big hiney down on your toasty and hid it.
Oh divine silvervine, me luvs you.
You had your own Raena, and me didn’t want slobber all over me’s toasty piece. Fank you soooooooooooooo much fur includin’ us awnty Ellen. The silvervine toast was a big hit.
Sure nuff. Fanky fank you awnty Ellen. Sissy, can you x’plain a bit ‘bout Memorial day? Peeps keep sayin’ happy memorial day and I’s don’t know what’s so happy ‘bout it.
Yeah Raena, me doesn’t get the happy pawrt either, me thinks peeps just don’t know what else to say. Memorial day is the day set aside to pay homage to those men, women and anipals that died while serving in the military. Me knows fur sure, that we ‘member them and their families every single day. Ifin not fur them, our country and way of life wouldn’t exist. The freedoms we have, wouldn’t exist. This country is great because of those willing to fight and die to make it so. No where else in this world has the freedoms and rights that the U.S. does. And shame on those who want to tear it down. The next time you complain about the government or somebody saying/posting something you don’t like or agree with, remember, you have the right to do that because someone died to make it so.
I’s sure am fanky fankful fur all those who gave their lives so we could live in such a pawsum country sissy. I’s so fanky fankful fur their families who suffered loss, fur the children who lost mothers or fathers to wars on distant shores. Sometimes peeps furget, the soldier serving and fighting should be at the top of our purrayer list, but their family serves as well. So, to all those soldiers who never came home, we salute you and purromiss not to take the freedoms your lives bought us fur granted.
Yep Raena, we are blest to have been born in the U.S. and mommy and me join you in saluting each and every soldier. Thank you fur your service and your sacrifice. And to all those Vets and currently serving, we fank you as well. God Bless America. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives.
We’re also joinin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. We are so Blest and wanna fanky fank you all fur bein’ our furiends. We luvs you all bunches and bunches.
Me couldn’t have meowed it better Raena. C’mon, let’s go give mommy some more birthday cuddles.
Till the next time…………………………………………..Be Blest!!!

RaenaBelle, hurry up. It’s time fur our Blest Sunday posty. Mommy says the weather guessers have said it’s gonna storm; so we’ve gotta get our posty written befur the heavens start rumblin’.
I’s comin’ sissy. What’s with the stormin’ meows? I’s don’t want anymore storms. I’s thought spring was s’posed to be here?.
Yeah, well, spring or not, you know it storms here a lot.
That I’s do, sissy. That’s kind’a why I’s don’t get why you wanna run hide when you hear the furst rumble in the sky? You’d think you’d be used to it by now. After all, it’s not like you were born yesfurday.
Uh? Me thinks you’re callin’ me old Raena. And ifin you are, that’s not very nice. Besides, how many times does me have to tell ya’, me’s not hidin’. Me’s makin’ sure you and mommy are safe from any critters that might try to get in the house and hide unner the bed. Anyways, me was really happy to see mr. Sunshine come out this week. It warmed up enuff fur mommy to take us fur a few strolls.
What fun we had, right sissy? I’s luvs to go strollin’ with mommy. I’s even met a couple of the neighbor ladies. They wanted to make over me and pet me and talk ‘bout how soft mine’s fur is. I’s wasn’t real fond of all those hands comin’ at me all at once, but I’s sucked it up and let ‘em manhandle me. I’s sure mine’s beauty made their day.
Hmmmmpht Conceded much Raena?
I’s don’t even know what that means, sissy. Anyways, I’s heard all kinds of noises and even saw a herd of deer out in our woods. Did you see ‘em when you went out?
Look’it mommy, it’s the bobcat!!!
Nope Raena, me didn’t see any deer, but me did see that old bobcat we used to feed. Least me thinks it was her. She was watchin’ mommy and me from the woods. She had a purretty good hidin’ spot, we almost missed her. Unfurtunately, mommy scared her when she went fumblin’ fur the camera. Then when she tried to take a foto of that old bobcat runnin’ away, the camera slipped and all mommy got was a foto of the sun settin’. It’s actually a really nice foto, just not what mommy was tryin’ fur.
Yeah sissy, mommy’s not the greatest fotographer in the world. Least she tries. I’s guess that’s what counts. And, mommy said it was good to see the bobcat. Maybe we’ll see more of her this year. I’s not got to meet her yet.
And ifin mommy has anythin’ to say ‘bout it Raena, you won’t ever get to meet her. Mommy says she’s not like us. Even tho’ she looks furiendly, she’s a wild cat and not meant to play with us.
Really sissy? You call me wild all the time, what’s the difference?
Your wild is kitten energy Raena. Her wild means she’s not used to hangin’ with peeps and she actually kills most everythin’ she eats. X’cept those times when everypawdy ‘round here puts out food fur her. She’s kind’a like our lion and tiger cousins you watch on the teevee; pretty to look at, but not suited fur home livin’. We’re so Blest to be homey kitties and have such a pawsum home with mommy.
We are at that. It’s just too bad sissy, I’s sure wanted to meet her.
Well, maybe you’ll see her one day while you’re out strollin’ with mommy. You can wave to her, just ‘member to keep your distance. In other words, stay in the stroller where you’re safe.
I’s do feel safe in our new stroller sissy. I’s luvs the tethers. They’re strong enuff to make sure we can’t escape or get hurt, but still long enuff to let us move all ‘round and take in the view. I’s just wish the wind hadn’t been blowin’ so hard when I’s was out.
Me too, Raena. All that wind was blowin’ our winter furs all over the place. Still, it was really nice to get out and take in some furesh air. The neighbor even came out to see me. Mommy wouldn’t let me get out and walk ‘round tho’. She said the exterminator had just sprayed the yard and she didn’t want me gettin’ poison on me’s paws. It’s the furst time he’s sprayed the outside in five years. We hope that helps cut down on all the scary bugs that try to get in the house like the scorpions, spiders and fire ants.
Fleas and ticks too sissy. We fur sure don’t want any of those.
Sure ‘nuff Raena. Altho’ me’s purretty sure mommy will take care of that fur us. Anyways, we are so Blest that we got to go out fur those amazin’ strolls this past week. Me can’t wait fur more.
Me either sissy, me either. Meowin of Blessings, we wanna fanky fank uncle Pete, Timmy and the furmily fur the green papers fur somethin’ special. Mommy didn’t say what she was gonna get us yet, but she purromissed to get us somethin’ we’d really like. And fanky fanks to awnty Lene fur the green papers fur me to get a bacon burger the next time we go to Ardmore. That stinkin’ dentist office has upset mommy so much at her last few visits that we didn’t even get to stop fur a special treat. Now mommy has no x’cuse, awnty Lene said so.
You better get enuff to bring home some fur me too Raena.
I’s will sissy, don’t worry.
Me also wants to fank all of you fur bein’ our furiends. We fank God fur all of you each and every day. We wanna remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. We’d also like to fank our sweet furiend Ali fur nominatin’ us fur the Mystery Blogger Award. Ali be a fellow Cat Scout and gawjus tabby. She doesn’t blog a lot, but you can check her out here. We think we’re s’posed to tell 3 things ‘bout us. So, nummer 1 is that we are Blest. Nummer 2, we luv all our furiends.
And nummer 3, we luvs strollin’!!! Fanky fank ya’ Ali. Anypawdy can take this award. Just link back to us and tell us 3 things ‘bout yourself. Let’s link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and get in some rainy day cuddles, sissy.
Till the next time…………………………………….Be Blest!!!

Meweek, Mew, Mew, (Dezi dances around and runs back and forth from the kitchen to her meal mat in the living room) hurry with that brekky mommy, we’ve gotta write our Blest Sunday posty. It’s our 4th Blogoversary!!! And what better day to celebrate it than Blest Sunday. Don’t put too much gravy in Raena’s, you know she’ll throw it all up ifin ya’ do.
(Raena jumps down from the wheelchair and runs right into Dezi re-entering the kitchen) Sissy…
Hisssssssss…Watch where you’re goin’, Raena!!!
I’s not the one runnin’, sissy, you are. Maybe, you should watch where you’re goin’. I’s want the exact same brekky as you. The more gravy the better. (Raena rubs against the wheelchair and one of mommy’s legs) Meowwwwww Mommy, I’s want the same brekky as sissy. I’s a big girly now. I’s even got to go the the Cat Scouts Valentine’s day dance. By the way sissy, what’s a Blogoversary?
Taggin’ along to a dance doesn’t make you all grown up, Raena. Now leave mommy alone so she can fix our brekky. Haven’t you figgered out by now the more we bug her the longer it takes to get fed? (Dezi meows as she runs back to her food mat. Then she hears the coffee pot beep and runs back to the kitchen, where she watches mommy get her cup of coffee and head for the living room to set it down. Dezi follows mommy back to the kitchen where she picks up the breakfast plates and heads back to the living room. Dezi runs ahead excitedly) Meweeeeeek, Mew, Mew. Here mommy, here. Put me’s brekky right here. (Turns to Raena and meows) We’ve been bloggin’ since February of 2014, Raena. Mommy had just got her furst real catputer and knew nuffin’ ‘bout the world of bloggin’ or the innernet. We actually created a blog totally by accident. But, it’s been one of the greatest things that ever happened to us. We’ve met so many amazin’ furiends, both human and anipal. We can’t ‘magine what our lives would be like without all of you in it. We’ve come so far from our furst posty and our second, both on the same day to innerduce ouselves. We didn’t have a clue ‘bout what bloggin’ was or how to edit fotos, or even what to write ‘bout.
(Raena runs to her food mat in the living room and looks back for mommy.) MeOWwww I’s so hungry. Put mine’s plate right here mommy, hurry. (Mommy parks the wheelchair and sits in the sitting chair and opens a bag of chocolate chip mini muffins. Raena looks up from her plate and walks over to sniff the bag in mommy’s hand. She goes back to “cover” her plate and then jumps in mommy’s lap.) I’s want some of that mommy…Why? Why can’t I’s have a bite? A little chocolate can’t pawssibly hurt me. (Looking down at Dezi, Raena meows) Well look at us now sissy. I’s can’t ‘magine you ever had a hard time comin’ up with somethin’ to meow ‘bout.
Ya’ never know Raena. Chocolate isn’t good fur us kitties or doggies. Besides, we’ve got great food, you wouldn’t like those muffins anyways. But, it sure was nice of awnty Cindy and angel Maggie Meme to send it to mommy. She luvs those little muffins and brownie bites. (Thinks about what Raena just meowed) Me’s not sure ifin you’re givin’ me a compliment or bein’ mean Raena, but me’s gonna choose to believe you’re bein’ nice. Back then the blog was mostly me’s meows; sis Lexi had facebook and me had the blog. It’s really nuffin’ like it used to be. But, mommy says that’s a good thing. We have to evolve and learn or we’ll fade away into the lost bytes and bits of the innernets.
I’s sure don’t wanna fade away sissy. I’s very fanky fankful you’re willin’ to share your bloggy with me; and all your furiends who accepted me and luvved me when I’s came here. Happy Blogoversary sissy, I’s hope we have lots more. By the way, did you see those Hawaiin rolls? Mommy can’t get enuff of those things. They are purretty tasty. I’s got to try a little bite once. I’s don’t know what a croissant is, but mommy seemed really happy to see those too. Fanky fank ya’ fur sendin’ mommy a Valentine’s day treat. We are so Blest.
That we are Raena. Another blessin’ we got this week was help with mommy’s leg ouchie. Some of ya’ may ‘member that mommy fell right befur Christmas and hurt her leg purretty bad. It got to hurtin’ somethin’ fierce last week, so we asked ifin anypawdy had any suggestions on how to treat it. Mommy’s V E T had told her to keep puttin’ that triple antibiotic cream on it and keep it wrapped. But, it didn’t seem to be gettin’ any better. And cuz mommy had to use a few bandaid type bandages cuz she ran out of gauze pads, she had some new sores where the sticky had been. Mommy’s ‘lergic to bandage sticky, and we’re thinkin’ triple antibiotic cream. As always, our pawsum furiends purrayed and gave us some great ideas fur treatin’ her ouchie. Warning: Below are purrgressive fotos of mommy’s ouchie. Ifin ya’ have a weak tummy, scroll quick, there’s only 3 and we made them small.
Sure ‘nuff, sissy. Somepawdy suggested she put Manuka honey on it. She just happened to have some of that cuz she had bought it fur your sis Lexi. I’s thought she looked kind’a crazy slatherin’ honey on her leg, but it really seemed to help, a lot. That honey took the heat and the soreness outta mommy’s ouchie really quick.
It even looks better too, Raena. And fanks to awnty Cindy fur sendin’ some green papers, mommy got some more gauze pads and is lookin’ into somethin’ called colloidal silver.
And the blessings don’t stop there, sissy. Mommy’s gonna be gettin’ her new fake teethies on Tuesday. We can’t hardly wait. I’s hopin’ we get to pick up some extra treats while we’re in Ardmore. Maybe I’s can meow mommy into gettin’ us some bacon or somethin’. What a week of blessings we’ve had. Good furiends, good food and lots of luvs…What more could a kitty girl ask fur.
And, A Blogoversary!!! Absolutely Nuffin’ Raena, we’ve got everythin’ we need. What Blest lives we have. We’d like to remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the Blessings in your life. And fank you all fur visitin’ us, commentin’ on our postys and mostly fur just bein’ the bestest extended furmily in the universe. We luv you all very much.
Don’t furget the Sunday Selfies, sissy. There’s been a lot of distractions and things mommy’s had to deal with these past couple of weeks, so we’re purretty behind in our visits to all our furiends. We’re really sorry we’ve not been by to see ya’, but we hope to get caught up soon. Purrlease bear with us, (Raena and Dezi look over at mommy) we purromise to visit soon. And here’s to elbenty billion more Blogoversaries.
Till the next time…………………………………Be Blest!!!
