Blest Sunday: No Nonsense Blessings

Hissssssss RaenaBelle!!! Stop jumpin’ on me. It’s time to write our Blest Sunday posty. 

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

 

          But sissy, I’s wanna play. You’re no fun. 

 

Dezi and Raena check out the Kitty Kick Stix

 

 

There’ll be purrlenty of time to play later Raena. Right now, it’s posty time. And, we’ve gotta get to writin’ while mommy’s still awake to take meow-tation. Ya’ know, she kept conkin’ out yesfurday.  

 

 Dezi lays atop the liberty cat tree while Raena stands sniffing at the shelf

 

 

          She does that all the time sissy. ‘Specially when she’s tired. I’s guess she was really tired yesfurday, cuz even after takin’ that nap, she still conked out over the keyboard. All we can do is hope we weren’t visitin’ one of our furiends at the time. Ifin so, our meow-tation wouldn’t make any sense. I’s just hope she’s ketchin’ up on all that sleep she missed. Mine’s eyes are doin’ much better, and I’s feelin’ all spry and happy now. 

 

 Dezi and Raena laying atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

          Yeah, you’re feelin’ a little too spry ifin ya’ ask me. You’ve been doin’ zoomies and bouncin’ off the walls fur the last couple of days. Not to mention jumpin’ all over me ever chance ya’ get.

 

          I’s just feelin’ sooooooo good sissy. All I’s want is fur you to play with me. But noooooo, you’re just bein’ an old fuddy duddy. By the way, what ‘zactly is a fuddy duddy? The weather’s coolin’ off and I’s got all this energy inside, and I’s just gotta let it out. MOL 

 

Dezi sniffs her nip toys

 

 

Yeah, it is getting’ cooler isn’t it Raena?. Ifin ya’ don’t know what somethin’ is, then ya’ might think twice ’bout meowin’ it. Anyways, it’s also startin’ to turn dark earlier too. That means we’ll get to eat dinner an hour earlier. 

 

          We will sissy? Did anypawdy tell mommy that? Cuz I’s know I’s can’t tell time, but I’s purretty sure we ate dinner an hour later than usual last night. 

 

Well, mommy’s just gotta ketch up with the time, that’s all.

 

 Dezi and Raena atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

          Hmmmpht  By the time she does that, it’ll be time to change all our clocks. Ya’ know, crazy humans think they need to play with time. They should just do what us kitties do…run on tummy time.

 

Yep Raena, that’s purrobably the smartest thing you’ve ever said. Anyways, we’re here to meow ‘bout our blessings, not meow the fat ‘bout time and other such nonsense. 

 

Dezi and Raena eat Primal Freeze dried Cat food

 

 

          There ain’t nuffin’ nonsensical ‘bout noms and dinner time sissy. But you’re right, such blest kitties as we are should fur sure meow ‘bout ‘em. Even tho’ I’s didn’t wanna go to the V E T, I’s feelin’ much better now that I’s did. Altho’, fur some reason you and mommy keep complainin’ ‘bout mine’s smell. 

 

Oh Raena, you’ve got a nose. And me knows you can smell it too. Y, You even grumble right befur you pass that wind. Ya’ almost ran mommy and me outta bed last night with the smell.

 

          Seems that vaccination made me a little gassy, sissy. I’s grumble cuz mine’s tummy’s rumblin’. I’s sure hope it goes away soon. 

 

 Dezi profile atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

So do we, Raena, so do we. But, me knows mommy and me are fur sure happy you’re feelin’ better, stinky or not. Me believes you’ve even put on a few pounds since your visit to that pawful place. 

 

          Yeah sissy, mommy’s had to make both of us seconds at each meal the last few days. she says she’s so happy we’re eatin’ so good. I’s just grateful we have enuff noms to get those seconds. ‘Specially when just a few short days ago, we ran out.

 

We are blest Raena. We’re blest to have so many pawsumly amazin’ furiends too. Me knows we’re behind in our visits, but me sure hopes things slow down a bit now and we can get ‘round to see everypawdy soon. We miss so much when we can’t visit.

 

 Dezi and Raena atop the liberty cat tree with Yeowww toy

 

 

          That’s the truth sissy. Even tho’ we might not make it by to visit with them, they’re always in our thoughts and purrayers. We are all so blest to have each other. I’s sure wanna say a meowsy big fanky fanks to all of them fur their purrayers fur me.

 

 Dezi licks lip as she looks around the corner from the dining room

 

 

Well, Raena, let’s link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and go play. We also wanna remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the many blessings in your lives. 

 

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

Chatting Cats: Decorations Everywhere

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. You should’a seen all the stuffs I’s did yesfurday. Mommy and me went to her dentist ‘pointment to get her dentures re-lined, and the place had all kinds of decorations out. Y, They even had the cutest black cat sittin’ on a table. 

 

 Dezi looks at Raena from atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

          What do you mean they had a black cat sittin’ on a table Raena? 

 

 Raena jumps down from the brown tree in front of the new old window

That’s the new old window behind me. Mommy had furgot to turn the

lights on, so mine’s foto is really dark.

 

 

It wasn’t real sissy, but it was still cute. ‘Course, we have no fotos, cuz mommy totally furgot the camera. We even met a new dental assistant. And ya’ know what? She used to work at that place that refused to treat mommy ifin I’s was there. She said they talked ‘bout mommy and me furever. But she did tell mommy that we were lucky they wouldn’t treat her, cuz it was a bad place. 

 

          Sometimes God knows things we don’t Raena. Actually, most of the time. Me’s glad things worked out the way they did. What else did ya’ll do? 

 

 Raena naps on the brown cat tree in front of the new old window

 

 

 

 

We went to the Wally World and the Pet store. Mommy said she was lookin’ fur a surpurrise fur your birthday. When is your birthday sissy? Will I’s get a surpurrise too?

 

Dezi lays on chair

          Really Raena? Mommy was lookin’ fur me a surpurrise? Me’s birthday will be here befur ya’ know it. This is October and me’s birthday is November the first. Just a few more days. Did mommy buy me anythin’?

 

Raena looks up at mommy while wearing the bobble hatOnly cuz it’s fur a good cause mommy. But you

know I’s don’t really like to wear hats.

 

 

How should I’s know sissy? Besides, ifin she did and I’s told ya’, it wouldn’t be a surpurrise anymore. You should’a seen all the cute dresses they had. Mommy said it was ridiculous how ‘spensive they were considerin’ how little material they actually had. Mommy almost bought us a hat. But, I’s reminded her how much we hate wearin’ hats. Ya’ know, I’s like a purretty dress as much as the next kitty, but I’s not crazy ‘bout anythin’ that covers mine’s head. It messes up mine’s purretty “fur-do”.

 

 

 Dezi lays on the vanity while wearing the time traveling bobble hat

Like Raena meowed, only cuz it’s fur a good cause.

 

 

 

          Yeah Raena, you do like gettin’ all dressed up don’t ya’? Me’s sure glad you meowed mommy outta the hat tho’. Fank the cats, we don’t celebrate halloween or mommy might be tryin’ to put masks on us too. 

 

Is that what all the decorations are ‘bout sissy? 

 

Dezi in a Santa Suit including the hatMe’s ready fur the Christmas holiday. Furget ’bout this

halloween stuffs and bring on Christmas.

 

 

          Yep Raena, this time of year peeps go a little crazy dressin’ up like someone they’re not. Me thinks it might be a good idea ifin we were to write a posty ‘bout the dangers that us anipals might face durin’ this time. Wha’d’ya’ think?

 

Raena lays on cat treeDid Somepawdy meow Christmas?

 

 

I’s think that’s a great idea sissy. I’s was still really young last year, so I’s don’t ‘member much ‘bout this halloween. I’s gotta go get ready now sissy. Mommy and me have to go to her doctor’s ‘pointment today. What are you gonna do while we’re gone?

 

          Don’t you worry ‘bout me Raena, me’s gonna take a nice relaxin’ nap. Have fun. Me’s gonna start researchin’ fur our danger posty. 

 

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

Chatting Cats: She Ain’t No Spring Chick

Hey Raena, what are you doin’ in the stroller? It’s brekky time.

 

Raena lays in the stroller

 

          Well sissy, ‘member that physical therapist that was s’posed to come assess mommy last week fur the wheelchair? Turns out, he never planned to come here at all. He furinally called mommy really late and told her she had to come to him at the hospital. So, we’re headin’ there today. Fanky fankfully, he’s at the rehab hospital here next door to our ‘pawrtment complex. But still, it put the wheelchair on hold fur yet another week. As ifin there isn’t already enuff red tape and hoops to jump thru.

 

 Dezi and Raena meet in the hall way

 

 

Yeah Raena, and me ‘members how upset mommy was after waitin’ all day on him to show up. But, ya’ll aren’t goin’ fur a while yet, so come eat. You know how mommy gets when she has to tell us to eat a hunnerd times each meal.

 

 Raena lays on the back of the chair

 

 

          Yeah, she was cryin’ ‘bout that last night. Ya’ know, mommy feeds us really well. But, ‘pawrently it costs lots of green papers to buy. Mommy had thought ‘bout havin’ our auto ship go ahead and ship early, but she just couldn’t come up with enuff of those green papers. When she furinally got paid she hit the send now button on our noms. Unfurtunately, they’re comin’ from up North and won’t be here fur over a week. When she furinally realized that last night she called up Chewy to find out why they didn’t ship from the warehouse down the street. They didn’t have an answer other than the warehouse must not have had our noms in stock. Thinkin’ ‘bout us runnin’ outta noms, mommy started blubberin’ like a baby right there on the fone with the Chewy man. 

 

Dezi looks down from atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

We’re gonna run outta food Raena? Is that what you’re meowin’? You fur sure better come eat. Ifin you don’t, me just might have to eat yours too. Me can’t be missin’ any meals now. We’ve read ‘bout how our furiends just starve when their pawrents put ‘em on a diet. At least they’re still gettin’ somethin’. We’ll waste away to nuffin’ without noms. 

 

          Don’t worry sissy. Surely mommy will figger somethin’ out?. Maybe she can order some from amazon that’ll get here in a couple of days? 

 

 Dezi lays on chair

 

 

With what Raena? Her good looks? In case you hadn’t noticed, mommy ain’t no spring chick anymore. And me ain’t meowin’ ‘bout the kind with feathers. She’s got a few more wrinkles and rolls than she used to have. And besides, even ifin she still had all the curves in all the right places, ain’t nopawdy in the catputer fur her to flirt with.

 

          That’s not very nice sissy. I’s gonna tell mommy you called her old, fat and wrinkly.

 

Do you think she doesn’t already know that Raena? 

 

          She might, but, she thinks we think she’s purrfect and gawjus. 

 

 Dezi snuggles in mommys lap

 

 

We do tattle tail, but none of us are blind. And me was just meowin’ the facts. Now, why don’t you put some food in your mouth and keep it shut. (Mommy comes into the room with a fresh cup of coffee and Dezi saunters over and rubs against her and jumps in her lap purring loud enough to shake the picture frames on the wall)  Me luvs you mommy. 

 

 

 Raena lays in mommy's lap

 

 

          (Raena jumps on the chair and tries to push Dezi over so she can also sit in mommy A’s lap. Dezi hisses and jumps down. Seeing Raena’s open breakfast plate, she moves in and starts eating. Raena nuzzles mommy and starts to purr loudly)  I’s luvs you mommy. Are we gonna visit patients when we’re at the rehab hospital today? (Raena cleans her paw and notices Dezi eating  all the rabbit from her plate) I’s better go eat befur sissy scarfs down all mine’s noms. Hey sissy, don’t eat all the rabbit. That’s mine’s favorite pawrt. 

 

Hmmmpht  You steal mommy’s lap and me will steal your rabbit… Wanna play befur you and mommy go out?

Chatting Cats: Welcome To Our Tree Gizmo

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Most of ya’ have expurressed an interest in hearin’ ‘bout our recent guests. We’re so x’cited to meow ‘bout it; so grab your coffee, tea or drink of your choice and read on. We’re runnin’ really late, but wait’ll ya’ see all the fotos. We really do luv meetin’ our furiends. Ifin we could, we would visit all of ya’ in the fur to fur/flesh. So, let me set the stage fur ya’. 

 

 Raena watches for Gizmo from the cat tree

 

Dezi lays atop the cat tree

 

 

          Raena, me should set the stage. After all, they were me’s furiends furst. So, it went somethin’ like this: A few weeks ago mommy got an email from awnty Mary Beth, who lives in Arizona. She said her, uncle Garth and our sweet furiend Gizmo were comin’ our way and wanted to pay us a visit. Mommy squealed with delight and told Raena and me we had a surpurrise comin’ on September 17th. We thought the 17th was never gonna get here. But alas, the day furinally came and Raena and me set up on the cat tree to watch fur our surpurrise. 

 

 Raena meets Gizmo

 

 

We sure did sissy. but, as the day went by, you got tired of waitin’ and went to the back to take a nap. See sissy? I’s didn’t say anythin’ ‘bout the thunder boomers. Anyways, I’s kept mine’s watch out the door, even tho’ I’s didn’t know what I’s was watchin’ fur. Minutes turned into hours and hours into days. Okay, so maybe that’s stretchin’ it a bit, but it seemed like furever. Furinally, mommy jumped up and said, “Dezi!!! Raena!!! They’re here!!!” And then she jumped up and opened the door. Once everypawdy came inside and sat down, I’s headed over to meet mine’s new furiend.

          Yep Raena, and then mommy came to wake me up so me could come and visit too. Me could hardly believe me’s awnty Mary Beth, uncle Garth and Gizmo were actually sittin’ in me’s house. MeOWwwwww  Me knows sis Lexi would’a luvved to meet ‘em, so me had to say an extra hey cuz she couldn’t be here. ‘Course, mommy wanted to do a lot of talkin’, so me went to lay on the cat tree and let them do their human stuffs.

 

 Raena looks up at Gizmo sitting in Mary's lap

Hey Gizmo, mine’s name is RaenaBelle. So nice to meet ya’.

Wanna play on our cool cat tree?

 

 

Yep sissy, humans sure do like to talk don’t they?. Unfurtunately, it had been threatenin’ to storm all day, and the thunder boomers started rumblin’ thru shortly after they got here.

 

 

Mary Beth holds Gizmo

Awnty Mary Beth and Gizmo

 

 

          They sure did Raena. With all the extra peeps in the house, me had to go make absolutely sure there were no spiders or any other pesky pests that were gonna get anypawdy.

Sure sissy, whatever you say. It’s just too bad you spent most of the day UTB (under the bed). Gizmo and I had lots of fun. We hung out on the cat tree getting’ our fotos taken. Did you know mommy offured him one of our Yeowww nip nanners? Gizzy was a little to nervous to let loose and enjoy the goodness of the nip nanner. So, mommy sent it home with him fur all of his fursibs to enjoy. We don’t mind sharin’, ‘specially since mommy bought us extra with the money awnty Vonda had sent fur your birthday last year. You know, we think every kitty oughtta have the joy of a Yeowww nip nanner at least once in their lives. Awnty Mary Beth said Gizzy’s not too crazy ‘bout his harness and that’s why he wouldn’t let loose and play. I’s offured to put mine’s harness on ifin it would make him more comfurtable. 

 

          That sure was nice of ya’ Raena.

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

 

Well sissy, it was the least I’s could do. Mommy shared her cofee with uncle Garth. And you know I’s wanna be just like mommy.

 

          Mommy didn’t actually share her coffee Raena, she made uncle Garth a cup of coffee all his own. 

 

That’s what I’s meant sissy. Kittens!!! Ya’ think I’s said they were drinkin’ outta the same cup. Hmmpht  Anyways, you’re never gonna believe what happened next… 

 

Garth and Mary Beth

 

 

Stay tuned, we’ll be back with the rest of the story Sunday. T’ween the hunnerd fotos mommy took and the 157 fotos awnty Mary Beth took, we’re tryin’ to show as many as we can without goin’ overboard. But, that’s a lot of fotos and mommy’s eyes started crossin’ lookin’ at ’em all. MOL

Chatting Cats: Watching Out The Door

EDIT: We don’t know when this will post as all internet, phone and cell service went out in our area at 10:30 a.m. Friday 9/15/2017. We have put this post on a loop to publish with the first signal.

 

 

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. (Raena sits on the perch staring out the door and meowing loudly at mommy and the neighbors looking at the car.) Mommy, I’s can see you!!! Purrleeeeeease…let me out there with you!!! MeeeOWwwwwww

 

Dezi looks out door from cat tree

 

          RaenaBelle!!! What is all the caterwaulin’ ‘bout? A kitty can’t take a purropurr beauty nap what with all that noise goin’ on.

 

 Raena lounges on perch and watches the rain out the front door

 

 

I’s wanna be outside with mommy and the new neighbors, sissy.

 

 

 Dezi and Raena look out door from cat tree and small perch

 

 

          (Dezi gets on the cat tree and looks out the door) Raena? Do you see mommy glistenin’ sweating in the sun? It’s hot out there. You don’t wanna go outside. It’s much nicer in here with the air conditioner. Mommy ain’t goin’ nowhere…least not without us.

 

 Dezi and Raena look out door from cat tree and small perch

 

 

I’s know sissy, but I’s still wanna be out there with her. She said the new neighbors are movin’ cuz the manager’s harassin’ ‘em. But they’ve been kind enuff to help mommy work on the car. Seems our car’s radiator tank sprung a leak and hopefully that’s the reason fur all that gurglin’ and sputterin’ the other day. The neighbor boy couldn’t check the fans cuz of all the spewin’ water and antifreeze. Mommy says that antifreeze is the reason I’s can’t go outside with her. 

 

          That’s true Raena. Antifreeze is deadly fur us anipals. Unfurtunately some peeps aren’t very careful with that stuffs and we anipals seem to be attracted to it like a moth to a flame. 

 

I’s don’t see how sissy, that stuff stinks. When the car did all that sputterin’ the other day, I’s got all choked up. I’s couldn’t get outta the car fast enuff.

 

 Dezi and Raena look out door from Cat tree and small perch

 

 

          Me doesn’t know either Raena, but every year lots of anipals end up at the VET cuz of antifreeze poisonin’. Anyways, mommy ordered one of those tanks fur the neighbor boy to put on the car, and we’re purrayin’ hard that’ll fix everythin’. In the meantime, mommy says our surpurrise is comin’ this weekend. And, since she’s been busy all week with the car, she hasn’t gotten to the house cleanin’ that needs to be done. Looks like we’re gonna be helpin’ with that today and tomorrow.

 

 Raena paws at the mop Raena checks out the mop

 

 

Yep sissy, since mommy can’t actually drive the car, she had to order the pawrt and it won’t be here till Tuesday. Why don’t you run the carpet monster and I’s will help mommy mop.

 

 Dezi vacuums

 

 

     Sure Raena, whatever you say…as if. MOL 

 

Then we can play. I’s can’t wait fur our surpurrise. (Dezi and Raena run off excitedly and play zoomies with the piddle pads in the bathroom
