(Dezi, laying in the chair and sleeping, mews quietly a few times and then jolts awake) MeOW Hissssss Move over RaenaBelle, your hoggin’ the mommy warmth. (Looking around and realizing she’s not in the bed and mommy is sitting across the room, she quickly runs over to the cat tree and cleans her paw.) Kittens!!! It seems even colder today.
It is sissy. Don’t you hear the heater keep switchin’ on? I’s heard mommy tell the counselor that she sets it on 55°F, cuz ifin it gets that cold in the house, the we obviously need some heat.
Me’s thinkin’ she might need to turn it up a few degrees Raena. Like maybe another 10 or so. Ya’ know when the fan’s blowin’ right on ya’ circulatin’ the cold air, ya’ gotta get heat from somewhere. Me knows mommy can’t breathe ifin it gets too hot, but seriously, it ain’t s’posed to be this cold inside the house.
I’s agree sissy. But, I’s don’t think mommy knew it was gonna turn that cold when we went to bed this meownin’. Ya’ know, a storm blew in with high winds, lots of rain and thunder boomers.
You think me didn’t hear it Raena? Me heard it just fine. Boom, boom, boomin’ overhead and blowin’ stuffs all over the place and into windows and doors. Somethin’ kept knockin’ on our window while we were tryin’ to eat dinner. It was somethin’ else. Me thought me just might fall to pieces.
Oh sissy, least you didn’t run and hide out. We didn’t have to call your name once. Mommy and me are so purroud of you.
Well fanks Raena. Me wanted to be with mommy and help her with her singin’. It always gives me sweet dreams.
Me too sissy. The melody was off the chain last night. I’s bet the winter rose even tried to bloom.
Maybe Raena. Least we didn’t need any help to make it through the night.
Good one sissy. In case ya’ think we’re meowin’ in code or somethin’…we are. MOL We thought we’d try to incorpurrate the song titles into our conversation. It’s a little harder than we x’pected. But, fur all those that requested mommy to sing some country songs, we’ve finally got a few recorded and hope you enjoy them. You can also go to soundcloud and lissen to the ones we didn’t include in the posty as well as those from last year.
Me’s even workin’ on me’s own song. Anyways, we better run. We’ve got lots to do and not much time to do it in.
I’s gonna link us up with Comedy Plus fur Feline Furiday sissy.
You do that Raena. And don’t furget to join the Blessing Train. We can’t wait to see who be added to the tracks this week.
Till the next time…………………………………………………Be Blest!!!

Deztinee and RaenaBelle
Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s comin’ to ya’ live from the Three Belles Ranch. Yep, that’s right, our ranch has a name. I’s been doin’ some research and seems ranches have a name and a logo they call a brand. But, it seems the only ones who wear this brand are the cows. We don’t have any cows.
RaenaBelle, what in the world are you meowin’ ‘bout? Why would you be meowin’ ‘bout cows? You and this ranch. (Dezi shakes head) We’re not gettin’ cows so you can have your ranch. The only cow me wants to see is the one on me’s plate at dinner time.
You’re no fun sissy. I’s was actually thinkin’ ‘bout askin’ the jolly man in red fur a couple and maybe even a bull. I’s saw it on tv, peeps pay money to ride a bull. Ifin we had one, we could sell rides.
Raena, peeps aren’t gonna pay us to ride a bull. Besides, it’d cost a lot more than we could make to feed him. This is purrobably your worst plan ever. Back to the plannin’ board fur you.
Hmmmmpht Well, I’s thought it was a good idea sissy. Anyways, we don’t really have time fur bulls right now. It’s almost Christmas and we haven’t sent out our Christmas cards yet. We’ve really got to get mommy movin’ in the right direction.
That we do Raena. We have been havin’ a little fun helpin’ mommy make some recordings. Last year we got requests fur mommy to record some country songs and a few gospel ones too. Now that she has teethies again and peeps can unnerstand what she’s sayin’, she’s been hard at work to find the music to make these recordings.
Oh sissy, I’s just luvs it when mommy sings. And we’re such good helpers.
(Dezi meows sarcastically) Me’s sure mommy agrees Raena. You keep standin’ on her shoulders and head buntin’ her.
What ‘bout you sissy? You keep pawin’ at her and stickin’ your face in hers fur kisses. I’s purretty sure she can’t kiss you and sing at the same time.
Me can’t help me’s self Raena. Me just luvs mommy so much. Mommy says in spite of all our help, she should have the recordings finished by the end of the week.
What does she mean in spite of our help, sissy? I’s don’t think that’s actually a compliment.
Sure it is Raena, mommy luvs it when we help her.
(Raena sees something outside and runs to the cat tree to investigate) Look sissy, a squirrel!!! How many does that make now?
Who knows Raena, it could be the same squirrel we keep seein’ over and over again. At this point he should have enuff nuts stored up to last fur 3 winters.
Where do ya’ think his home is sissy? Do you think he has a family?
How should me know Raena. He doesn’t talk to me any more than he talks to you. Ya’ know, you mentioned the man in red earlier. You know we need to write our letters?. The cat scouts are gonna be takin’ a trip to the North Pole to visit Santa’s workshop soon. Me was thinkin’ you could tag along and we could give him our letters while we’re there?
Really sissy? You’d let me come with ya’ll? I’s would luvs that. I’s don’t know why you won’t let me join, I’s think we’d have so much fun.
Maybe some day Raena. In the meantime, we should ask mommy to get us some new outfits fur the trip.
Y, Look’it who’s makin’ the big plans now, sissy. I’s luvs shoppin’. Let’s get outta the door and get ready. We hope you enjoyed hearin’ mommy’s songs today. We’ll post more later this week.
Till the next time………………………………………………….Be Blest!!!

RaenaBelle and Deztinee
MeOW Hey Raena, have you been workin’ on any new plans? Like maybe some business we could start, or some way fur us to get more treats? You know our furiends seem to get a lot of treats. We even got asked the other day how we could survive without treats.
Really sissy? Did you tell ‘em that we never got many treats, so we never developed a taste fur ‘em? We fur sure don’t like those temptation things that they make those stupid commercials ‘bout. I’s just hate that one with the guy sittin’ on the upstairs balcony throwin’ one at a time out fur some poor kitty havin’ to jump up from the ground to ketch it. Hmmmmpht Ain’t no piece of kibble that tasty.
Yeah Raena, me’s with you on that one. But that ain’t the only silly commercial. Me doesn’t know what you see in watchin’ so much tv?
Oh sissy, there’s just so much to learn. Did you know our furiend Marigold was from the hood? Word is she could teach us a thing or two ‘bout ketchin’ those hood rats you were meowin’ ‘bout the other day.
RaenaBelle, me doesn’t know how else me can meow it. Me wasn’t meowin’ ‘bout actual rats. Ifin me had been, you would’a needed to put on your runnin’ shoes. Me’s heard rats can get really big; and fur a Ragdoll, you’re kind’a small.
I’s not small sissy. I’s a long and lean mean kitty Queen.
Kitty queen huh? Me thought mommy x’plained to you that even tho’ you might be the Alpha cat in our house. you’re not the Queen, me is.
No sissy, mommy said I’s the Queen and you’re the Em-purress. By the way, what’s an Empress?
She did, did she? (Dezi contemplates the hierarchy of royalty and smiles.) Well then, me’s the Em-puress of this here ‘pawrtment.
(Raena leans over and whispers to Dezi) Ranch sissy, I’s think it sounds better.
What? We don’t live on a ranch Raena. Wherever did you come up with that one? And what difference does it make what we call it?
Well sissy, I’s know we’re from the South. And that we’re real live Southern Belles, you know like Scarlet? But, I’s thought peeps might think we’re purrejudice or somethin’ ifin we called our place a Plantation. And, since mommy worked on a couple of horse and cattle ranches when she lived in Georgia, and we luvs horses, I’s thought a ranch was the next bestest thing.
(Dezi shakes her head while furrowing her brow.) Only you Raena, only you. Sometimes me just can’t follow your logic. Me’s not even sure you are logical.
I’s don’t have a clue what you’re meowin’ ‘bout sissy, but mommy says there’s nuffin’ wrong with me wantin’ to call our ‘pawrtment a ranch. Mommy says to dream big and believe and that’s x’actly what I’s doin’. Who knows, maybe one day we’ll wake up and be on our very own fur real ranch.
Sure Raena, whatever you meow. (Dezi thinks to herself about prowling the halls of a real ranch and waking to the crow of a rooster.) That would be kind’a nice. Anyways, are you goin’ with mommy to her doctor’s ‘pointment today?
pawsum? No red or inflamation or gunky oil or anythin’. Just clear blue.
Mommy cut out mine’s other eye but it looks just as good.
That’s the plan sissy. I’s gonna have to go get ready here purretty soon. Furst tho’, let’s link up with Comedy Plus fur Feline Furiday.
Well Raena, while ya’ll are gone me’s just gonna be enjoyin’ a little nap on the scratcher here. Mr. Sunshine’s here and there’s no sight of old man Winter anywhere. At least not today.
Till the next time…………………………………………….Be Blest!!!
