Well Raena, it’s here. It’s Valentine’s day, the day of luv.
What does that even mean, sissy? I’s know luvs is complicated, mommy says so. But, why is there a day fur it? Are ya’ only s’posed to luvs one day a year?
No, silly. Mommy says Valentine’s day is really all ‘bout luvvers. Don’t ask ‘bout that, you’re still too young. Anyways, cuz we don’t have any, we celebrate the luv we share with each other and mommy and all our amazin’ furiends. Most of the world does the same.
Luvvers, huh? When will I’s be old enuff, sissy?
When mommy says so, Raena. Luv may be complicated, but it’s all ‘round us, we just have to receive it. And most ‘purrtantly, give it. We are so grateful to have so many furiends who luv us. We luv you all dearly. You mean more to us than you will ever know.
And, I’s grateful fur you, sissy. I’s luvs you very much. And mommy, I’s luvs you more than anythin’ in the universe.
Me too mommy. Me luvs you more than Raena does.
You are both very sweet. I love you more than anything. Ya’ll are my world, my heart, my everything. We are blest to have each other, our friends and this wonderful life that we live. How ‘bout some Valentine’s treats?
Yes purrlease, purrrrrrrrrrrrr.
Oh Yes purrrrrrrrlease, meow, meow, purrrrrrrrrrrrr.
Happy Valentine’s Day
Till the next time…………………………………Be Blest!!!

Well, here we are, another Service Cat Monday. Raena and me meowed ‘bout it and meowed at mommy a bit and we’ve decided to take a break today. With mommy not feelin’ well, our visitin’ has been limited, so we’re a bit behind. And ya’ know what? Tomorrow is the day of Love. Now the world celebrates this day with candies and flowers and it’s all ‘bout the couple kinda luv. We don’t have that here, so we’re gonna be celebratin’ a different luv, a pure luv. As most of ya’ know, we write an article fur the Daily Mews. Don’t furget to sign up and check out some of the other stories while you’re there. This month, we wrote ‘bout that different kind of love and we thought we’d share it with all of you.
As most of you know, we lost sis Lexi last year. She lost her battle with CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) and went to heaven. It broke mommy’s heart and sis Lexi took a piece of mommy’s heart with her. It left mommy and me very angry. Not at sissy. We knew how tired she was and how weak she was. We could have never been angry with her, but we hated the disease that ravaged her. We were angry with God for taking her and letting her get sick in the first place. Mommy says all that’s normal; it’s part of grieving. Mommy also says we all experience loss at one time or another; it’s how we pick up the pieces and move on that matter. Let me first tell you all that we’re still picking up the pieces. However, as you know, we did get another kitty to train as mommy’s second Service Cat.
Here’s the thing. Nobody asked me what me thought. Me didn’t wanna be the big sisfur. Me didn’t wanna be the head Service Cat in charge, trainer of the new fluff ball, defender of mommy and all. It’s a lot of work. Just how did sissy do it? How did she manage it all without lifting a paw? She was the fiercest tigress on the planet. Everybody towed the line when she was around. We always knew we were safe with sissy on duty. And let me tell ya’, she was the bestest Service Cat ever. And me couldn’t have asked for a better sissy. She whooped little ole tyrannical me into shape in no time. How? Well, let me tell you.
Sis Lexi was pure L O V E, Love. Yep, you read that right. Mes sis Lexi loved mommy and me with her whole being. She never asked to be the big sisfur either, but things happened and there she was, having to not only share mommy and her toys with me, but teach me the ropes too. And she did. Sis Lexi could sense that mommy needed her, no matter where she was or what she was doing. It’s because she loved mommy so deeply. Mommy loved her just as much. And says, that a love like that needs no words. Sometimes mommy and sis Lexi would just look at each other and sissy would get up and go to sit in mommy’s lap and purr so loud the house shook. Okay, maybe the house didn’t shake, but it sounded good. Didn’t it? And trust me, sis Lexi could purr. It could very well have shook the house, it for sure shook the bed at night.
The video isn’t very good quality, but we thought you might like to
hear that purr and sis Lexi meow with mommy. You can
see it on YouTube by clicking here.
Bet you’re all wondering what the greatest lesson sis Lexi taught me was?. Sissy taught me how to love unconditionally and trust that mommy loved me the same way. Now, mommy and me communicate without saying a word. And that new sisfur me didn’t ask for? Well, me loves her too. Even tho’ she can be a pain in mes behind, me wants to be for her what sis Lexi was for me. Me wants Raena to know the kind of love that consumes you. Me wants her to never be afraid and to know that she’ll never be left behind or thrown away.
Mommy says Valentine ’s Day according to the world is a lovers’ holiday. And that’s all well and good, but since there are no lovers in our house, mommy says we celebrate the purest and rarest love of all. Unconditional Love. When all those around fail you, It’s your furry purrer that will always be there. No matter what comes our way, or what trials life may throw at us, we will endure and come out on the other side because we have love. We might still be picking up the pieces after losing sis Lexi; but we’re doing it with the love she left behind. Mommy says if more people took a lesson from the kitties book of love, this world would be a better place. We thank you all for sharing these little moments in our lives. And for those of you who think you’re alone…rest assured you’re not. We love you all and feel blest to have you in our lives. Love is the greatest gift you can ever give; and the greatest gift you’ll ever receive. Unconditional love is rare. When you find it, hold on tight. A true gift is given with no expectation of receiving anything in return. We purray you all know unconditional love in your lives.
Till the next time…………………………………..Be Blest!!!
Love and Hugs and Kitty Kisses
Dezi, Raena and mommy A
Happy Valentine’s Day. Me is a blest kitty girl fur sure, and it’s me’s turn to tell mommy thank you. Mommy, me hasn’t been with you fur nearly as long as sis Lexi, and me’s sorry a kitty had to die so you kuld save me. But me is so glad you came to me’s rescue dat cold November day. Me’s furst kupple weeks of life had been horrible and me was knockin’ on heaven’s door when you saw me da furst time. Me kuld sense yous heart was still broken, but me knew you had tons of luv left to give. And ifin me was gunna die, me didn’t wanna do it in a cage or shelter. Me wanted to know da luv and comfurt dat came from yous touch and voice. It took all da strength me’s little body kuld muster to crawl up into yous lap. But once there me turned on me’s purr boat and looked into yous eyes and then fell asleep.
Me’s body was so tired and me kuldn’t member da last time me had eaten. Me shulda still been nursin’ but there was no cat mommy in sight. And then you picked up me’s tired little body and sed, “You’re my Destiny and Deztinee will be your name.” Me had no real idea what any of dat meant, but once you took me outside and put me in da carrier, me knew you wasn’t leavin’ me behind. We had a long drive ahead of us and me wasn’t sure me was gunna make it; but me did. When you took me’s limp flea ridden, worm infested, bloated body out of da carrier me let out a soft mew of thank you. Me kuld rest now. But dat’s when you went to work. You made me a bottle and made sure me ate me’s fill and then bathed all those lifes’ blood stealin’ fleas off me. And then you cradled me in your arms and told me everything was gunna be alright. Me slept peacefully fur da furst time in me’s short life while layin’ on yous lap. This was da life. And fur da furst time me thought me might just make it.
Well dat was 6 1/2 years ago now and me did make. Me didn’t just survive, me thrived. Me’s livin’ da good life and fallin’ deeper and deeper in luv with you and sis Lexi every day. Me hopes me’s 10 littermates found their furevers too. Me wuldn’t ever wanna magine a life without you mommy. You have given me so much luv sumtimes me thinks me’s heart will burst. So on this Valentine’s day and every day mommy, me wants you to know dat me luvs you more than anythin’ in da universe.
