Blest Sunday: It’s Our 4th Blogoversary & The Blessings Continue

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? 


 #Dezi laying in chair




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.


Lexi lays in wheelchair and looks up




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. 


Raena lays beside box




          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. 


 Raena gets loving while laying in mommy's lap and squints for the camera




          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!!!

Blest Sunday: Giving And Receiving Blessings

MeeeeOW  What a week it’s been, huh Raena?. 


 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic



          That’s fur sure sissy. One day it was fureezin’ and the next mr. Sunshine graced us with his purresence fur a couple of hours.


Yep, and the next, the wind was blowin’ so hard it sounded like thunder and rain. The weather guessers said it was blustery out.


 Raena lays on chair back, selfie




          Blustery. Now what does that even mean sissy?


Dezi lays in mommy's lap



Well Raena, me knows what it looked and sounded like to me, but let’s ask the lady in the box. She should do somethin’ besides just sit there and beep all day. 


          She does sissy, don’t you hear mommy yellin’ at her to stop? And when that doesn’t work, she tries to tell her to shut up. Mommy says sayin’ shut up isn’t nice, so she must really get furustrated with the box lady sometimes. 


 Amazon echo dot




Yeah Raena, me wonders ifin other peeps with the box lady has to constantly tell her to be quiet too? Anyways, let’s find out what she has to say ‘bout blustery.


     Echo Dot: Blustery means “blowing in violent and abrupt bursts” 


Hmmmm  Well, me guesses 50 to 75 mph is fur sure violent.


          Guess so sissy. The leaves sure thought so, they were blowin’ ‘round everywhere. And, it made it feel soooooo cold, even inside the house. Which reminds me, did you see all the goodies that came in that recycled Chewy box from Pipo and awnty Ingrid? 


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Me sure did, Raena. Back when our ‘pawrtment flooded and got all packed up and remodeled, mommy found a few things went missin’. Among those missin’ items was mommy’s coat. Unfurtunately, there wasn’t anythin’ mommy could do ‘bout it. But, it did make fur some really cold outings in the winter time. Mommy never made a very big deal of it, but, every winter she would be reminded ‘bout that pawful time in our lives. Well, this winter just got so cold and mommy was out in it more than usual, so we happened to mention it in passin’ the other day.


 Dezi and Raena check out the tosy from Pipo

Look’it Raena, they sent goodies fur us too.




          And that’s when Pipo and awnty Ingrid got an idea. They happened to have some coats and sweaters layin’ ‘round after their awnty went to heaven, and decided to pass ‘em along to mommy. I’s just luvs the dark blue one. Oh Kittens is it soft and dreamy feelin’.


 Dezi with treats from Pipo on cat scratcher

Treats too?!!




It is nice Raena. Me likes the duster. Mommy’s always been a little of a cowgirl, and the duster looks really good on her. We sure are grateful fur such pawsum furiends. Mommy cried and cried fur like, ever.


 Raena plays with gift from Pipo and Ingrid

A mew wand toy and a bag of nip. Yesssssss




          Yep sissy, she did. Altho’ I’s not sure which made her happier, the coats and sweaters, the M&M’s, the cookies or the coffee?. I’s think the whole box was purretty pawsum. They even included some toys, treats and nip fur us.


Yep Raena, mommy can keep her cookies, coffee and M&M’s, me was all over our new mousies.


          I’s really like the wand toy, sissy. I’s just luvs a good inneractive play session with mommy.


Who are you kitten Raena? You just luv to play. We are so blest. Ya’ know, we’ve won a few contests lately that we haven’t had the chance to post ‘bout.


 Raena rolls around on new nip mat from Ellen

Oh awnty Ellen I’s luvs your nip mats.




          Sure ‘nuff sissy. We won this stuffs called Kit Tea from our furiend Cody. We’re actually s’posed to drink it, but we luvs just playin’ with the herb filled bags. And, mommy luvs the little tins they came in. She says they make a great nip meow-inator fur our older toys. And we got a package from mine’s godmother awnty Ellen that was just full of surpurrises. A little bit ago, the Whiskeratti gang was tryin’ to get green papers fur Toby’s dental work; and awnty Ellen said that she would make one of her Made with Love nip mats and some toys fur those who donated to the fundraiser. She had to limit it to those in the U.S. cuz she’s had a few sick kitties recently too and green papers are short.


Dezi plays with toy from EllenFanks awnty Ellen, me just luvs your Made with Love toys.




We know all ‘bout the shortage of green papers, don’t we Raena? Anyways, seems our sweet furiends from Hairballs and Hissyfits donated their Made with love nip mat and toys to us.


 Raena plays with toys from Ellen

Nip toys too. Fanky fanks awnty Ellen.




          That awnty Ellen be so talented, sissy. Fanky fank ya’ Frodo, Zulu and the gawjus Amarula and awnty Ellen. We luvs our new mat and toys. We are so blest sissy.


 Dezi with mouth open over nip toy from Ellen

Fank you awnty Ellen and Hairballs and Hissyfits.





We are Raena. And meowin’ of give aways, we should remind everypawdy that we have a great give away goin’ on right now. Check it out here and be sure to enter. It’s open to all U.S. and U.K. residents. Well, we better wrap it up now. We’re really late and me has plans later today. As always, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the blessings in your life. Fank you all fur bein’ our furiends and a special fanks fur all our goody senders.


 Raena's sleeping face while laying in mommy A's lap




          Don’t furget, we’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies, sissy. Seems it’s not been a great year fur them so far. We actually have quite a few furiends who are sick right now. So we’d also ask that you send up a little purrayer fur all in blogville.


You’re right Raena. Let’s go say a few purrayers now. 


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

Chatting Cats: Raena’s Resolve

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle.What’s all this meowin’ ‘bout a new year? Am I’s gonna have another birthday? I’s sure luvs birthdays. Is Christmas over? I’s heard somepawdy meowin’ there was s’posed to be 12 days of Christmas. I’s gotta tell ya’, this little kitty girl’s a little confused right now.


 Dezi laying in lap selfie




          RaenaBelle, this ain’t your furst new year. Were you really that oblivious last year that you don’t ‘member nuffin’? 


 Raena checks out the Hexbug from Belinda




I’s don’t know what that means sissy, but mommy says I’s was young and that mine’s play function was on overdrive. She says a kitty as active as me, doesn’t stop long enuff to realize what’s goin’ on ‘round us. I’s know mommy wouldn’t be mean to me, but somehow, I’s thinkin’ that’s not a very nice thing to say.


 Dezi and Raena watch the Litter Robot Open Air Litter Box




          You’re right Raeana, mommy would never be mean to us. Me doesn’t think she was mean when she said that, she was just tellin’ the truth. You’re still very active, but you’re furinally growin’ up enuff to slow down and smell the nip. It’s kind’a nice not havin’ ya’ jump on me constantly. Altho’ you do kind’a go overboard with PB our new automated litter box. Mommy says ya’ gotta quit tryin’ to keep the clumps. And no kitty needs to go pawtty every 3 minutes. You’re gonna wear him out and he won’t wanna dump the clumps anymore.


But he’s so much fun sissy. Did you see me go fur a ferris wheel ride this meownin’?


          Did you hear mommy yellin’ fur you to get down?


I’s thought she was yellin’ at you.


Dezi and Raena atop the liberty cat tree with Yeowww toy




          Oh Raena, of course you did. Anyways, let’s meow ‘bout your questions. Humans measure time in minutes, hours, days, weeks and years. So after so many days, humans start their count over and call it a new year. And yes, you’ll have another birthday, but not at the same time the new year starts. Your birthday is in April, so that’s when we’ll celebrate it. As fur Christmas havin’ 12 days, we don’t celebrate that way. We celebrate Christmas as the day Jesus was born, and it didn’t take 12 days fur that to happen.


But don’t we celebrate our birthdays fur a whole month?


 Dezi checks out the Hexbug




          We do Raena. But, that’s somethin’ mommy started cuz we were so poor and some kitty’s birthday was befur her payday and another kitty’s birthday was long after the greenies was gone fur the month. That would’a been Lucky and Lexi back then. By celebratin’ all month long, mommy hoped that at some point in that month she would be able to get somethin’ special fur the birthday kitty. So, to answer your questions, yes, Christmas is over fur the year. But, we can carry the Christmas spirit with us every day of the year. The world would fur sure be a better place ifin more peeps did it. And yes, you’ll have another birthday, but not till April. As fur the new year, we’ll celebrate it like we do all the holidays, gettin’ lots of extra luvvin’ and hugs.


Do we need to get mommy a gift? 


          Nope Raena, she’ll be happy ifin we just give her extra purrs and cuddles. There’s not really any gift givin’ at the new year.


 Dezi and Raena play with the Hexbug gift from Belinda




Oh, okay. Do ya’ reckon we can play with our new hexbug? I’s just luvs that thing. Awnty Belinda picked us out a good one.


          Yep Raena, me luvs it too. Me’s sure mommy will turn him on and let us play.


I’s got one last question sissy. What’s a new year’s resolution and do we need to make one?


          Well Raena, a resolution is s’posed to be a furm decision to do or not to do somethin’. Like, lots of peeps resolve to lose weight every new year. That’s why there’s lots of sales on exercise equipment and diet purroducts the whole month of January. The reality is that, most peeps aren’t really serious and give up on their resolutions a few weeks in. So, mommy says there’s no need fur us to be makin’ resolutions that we can’t keep. Mommy says ifin ya’ really wanna do somethin’ then ya’ just do it. It shouldn’t matter what time of year it is.


Raena checks out the Christmas gifts from BelindaOMC A Hexbug fur kitties!!! And is that Pawpaw too?

Fanky fank you awnty Belinda, we luvs it all.


Oh. Well, I’s thinkin’ I’s would still like to make a resolution. But, I’s gonna need your help to do it.


          Oh yeah? Well, what is it?


I’s wanna be a better and nicer sisfur. But, that means you’re gonna have to stop wavin’ your tail in mine’s face. Ya’ know, I’s just can’t help mine’s self when you go wavin’ all that floof in front of me. I’s just have to pounce. MOL 


 Dezi and Raena play with the hexbug gift from Belinda




          Me will be happy to give you the old whacky paw of help the next time you try it. MOL C’mon, let’s go play with our Christmas gifts.


I’s right behind ya’ sissy. Let’s play with mine’s new bouncy ball from Timmy and Einstein. 


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