Blest Sunday: The Selfie Fiasco

MeOW  (Dezi lays on the scratcher cleaning her face after having a few bites of breakfast, when she hears a low rumble off in the distance…)  Hisssssssssss  Hurry Raena, we’ve gotta write our Blest Sunday posty befur the storms start up again. (Dezi looks up at mommy A sitting in the chair beside the scratcher and begins to meow)  Mommy, me’s so tired of the storms. Me didn’t even get to take selfies with you and Raena.

          Well whose fault is that sissy? Mommy called you like, elebenty billion times. You’re the one who chose to stay UTB (under the bed) ‘stead of comin’ out fur the foto shoot. ‘Course, I’s’ll tell ya’, you didn’t miss much. Mommy couldn’t figger out how to make the smarty pants fone camera turn ‘round; and shootin’ selfies with the regular camera was like shootin’ in the dark. And, mommy made me sit and stare into the air the whole time she messed with ‘em. She got great fotos of mine’s paws and her neck. And a few of our tummies, and the tippy tops of our heads. I’s tellin’ ya’, we’d have blooper fotos fur a year outta that one foto shoot. 

 

Dezi lays on scratcher and licks paw

 

 

 

Really Raena? Well, guess it’s good that mommy doesn’t claim to be a seasoned or purrfessional fotographer. Otherwise, it would really be embarrassin’. Sometimes, me thinks we could take better fotos even tho’ we don’t have any thumbs.

 

Raena and mommy A selfie with new dentures

 

 

 

          You’re purrobably right sissy. We did furinally get a couple of usable fotos. Fanky fank heavens. Mommy’s been so x’cited ‘bout havin’ her new teethies, and we know everypawdy wants to see ‘em, so she wasn’t ‘bout to stop till we got at least one foto. Mommy was so touched by everypawdy who said she was purretty even without makeup. 

 

 

Yeah Raena, but they’ve never seen her. Ya’ know, it’s kind’a like the old barn on the farm. It’s full of memories and luv but not much to look at. But, you throw a couple coats of fresh paint on ‘er and she’s not an eyesore anymore. 

 

          Sissy?!! Are you callin’ mommy an eyesore? I’s gonna tell.  

 

Dezi selfie

 

 

 

Go ahead blabber mouth. Me wasn’t callin’ mommy an eyesore. Me was just sayin’, some old barns look better with a few coats of paint. You know, mommy’s got scars and discolorations and no eyebrows. You know how self conscious she is. She gets all decked out fur her drivers license foto fur kittens sake. 

 

 

Raena and mommy A selfie with new dentures

 

 

 

          That’s true sissy, she sure does. Anyways, I’s think the new teethies look purretty good. It’s fur sure nice to see mommy smilin’ again. She’s gonna need some adjustments, but ‘pawrently, that’s purrfectly normal. And as soon as we get the green papers fur more gas, mommy’ll call and make a ‘pointment. Mommy says she’s so very fanky fankful fur all the luv and suppurrt from our furiends durin’ this long purrocess. We are so very Blest to have the greatest furiends in the universe. 

 

Dezi puts head in toy box to find a toy

 

 

 

We are Raena. That’s why we fank God fur them every day and ask Him to Bless them and meet all their needs.

 

          I’s luvs purrayer time sissy. I’s luvs countin’ all our Blessings. (Seeing Dezi pawing through the toy basket, Raena meows…) Sissy, what are you doin’? There’s a nip nanner right here, and a nip heart and fishy and our made with luvs by awnty Ellen, silvervine toast over there. 

 

Dezi looks over shoulder from the toy box

 

 

 

(Looking up and over her shoulder from the toy basket)  Me knows Raena, but those aren’t the toys me wants to play with right now. Me’s sure there’s somethin’ really fun in the toy basket, me just has to dig out some of these toys on top. 

 

Raena lays in the wheelchair looking at box

 

 

 

          But sissy, mommy just picked up all those toys and put ‘em away. I’s don’t think she’s gonna be too happy ‘bout you scatterin’ ‘em all over the floor again. 

 

Dezi sniffs the Yeowww nip heart

 

 

 

She won’t care Raena. Mommy’s always sayin’ how much she luvs to see us playin’. (Dezi pulls the top layer of toys out of the toy basket and then looks around)  We sure are Blest to have so many toys. Me thinks me’d rather play with the nip heart after all. As we do every week, 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 fur bein’ Blessings in ours. 

 

          Hey sissy, don’t furget, we’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. After all I’s had to put up with to get a usable foto of mommy’s new teethies, we’re fur sure postin’ ‘em. Truth be told, I’s totally enjoyed bein’ held by mommy. Ain’t ‘nuffin better than mommy luvvin’. 

 

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

HexBug for Cats

Let me tell ya’, these things are sooooooo much fun. We got one of these buggers in our Hooligan in a Can purrize pack from Cat Scouts. As soon as mommy turned him on, we were off and running. I’s will say, he works bestest on non carpeted floors. But, kitty HexBugs are great fur hours of fun and a great source of some pawsum action shots fur all you fotographers out there. There are several places to get your HexBug from the creators website to amazon. They run anywhere from $4.99 to $19.99. They don’t specifically make a HexBug fur doggies, but there are some bigger bugs that we think any woofie would enjoy as well.

 

 

          Great choice Raena.

Kitty Kick Stix

 

Discount code with Dezi and Raena together on either end of the Kitty Kick Stix

 

 

 

          Me’s furst pick is those pawsum Kitty Kick Stix we just reviewed (see our review here). They’ve got a kicker fur every kitty. They range in size from 6” to 15” and they’ve even innerduced some new refillable kinds. And, ifin you use our special code DWORLD, you can save 15% off their sale purrices of $3.95 to $26.95.

 

That’s a good one sissy.

 

Frisco 33.5” Scratching Post

Dezi stretches on the scratching post

 

 

 

Mine’s next pick is the Frisco 33.5” Scratching Post from Chewy.com. We not only reviewed this pawsum scratcher, we liked it enuff to ask if we could give one away (see our review here). This scratcher is tall enuff fur even the larger housecat breeds. And it’s purrlenty sturdy, so it’s sure to be liked by the kitties on your list. You can find it on Chewy fur $32.99. And, it comes in brown and cream.

 

          And, we know every kitty needs a good scratcher, don’t we Raena?.

 

Garfield Cat Litter

          Speakin’ of a kitty’s needs Raena, every kitty needs a good litterbox filled with a great litter. One of our top choices fur the latter is the Garfield Cat Litter.

Litter Robot Open Air III

Litter Robot Open Air III with Garfield Cat Litter

 

 

 

When it comes to automated litterboxes, our choice is the Litter Robot Open Air III. Stay tuned fur our review. We’ve haven’t decided ifin it’s a toy or a litterbox. Hey, maybe, it’s both!!! MOL Like I’s said, you’ll have to wait fur the review. But, we do luv it. Now, we realize this is purretty ‘spensive. But, when ya’ think ‘bout the fact that you’ve gotta have a litterbox, and somepawdy’s gotta do the scoopin’, then we think this makes perfect sense. It’s got features out the wazoo to make the peeps happy and functions purrfectly fur a kitty’s needs. It runs $449.00 and comes ready to go outta the box…just add litter and kitty.

 

          Raena, you’re gonna have to learn to let the scoops go. It really isn’t a toy.

 

Yeowww Nip Nanner

          Anyways, what kind of kitties would we be ifin we didn’t list the famous Yeowww nip nanner? At only $5.99 at Chewy, ya’ can’t go wrong. It’s full of purremium grade catnip to delight every kitty. Okay, maybe not every kitty, but most.

 

Hey sissy, we purromissed items fur the peeps too.

 

Just Kitten Around Coffee Mug

I’s would like to suggest that huge coffee mug Chewy sent mommy a while back. She says it’s purrfect and adorably cute. And at $9.99 every kitty luvver will have a big smile with their coffee, tea or hot chocolate.

 

          That’s fur sure a good one, Raena.

 

Cat Shelf

This is great mommy. Ya’ gotta hang it up? I’s couldn’t wait.

 

 

 

          Ya’ know, we haven’t listed any purrches fur us kitties. We received a great Cat shelf from the wonderful cats at Art of Paws. It’s a family run business, 1 purrson and 4 cats. Now that’s me’s kind of business. MOL Anyways, the shelf we received if just purrrrrrrrfect. Very well made and it looks just bootyful. It has 2 removable washable covers, soft wool or a ridged fibre type. And, it’ll hold up to 33 pounds. That means it’s purrfect fur us. It comes with everythin’ you need to get it up on the wall includin’ the wall anchors. Ifin ya’ live in a small space like we do, you know you have to take advantage of the vertical space. ‘Course, anypawdy who knows cats, knows, we like the high places anyways. This shelf is only $39.95 and worth every penny. So, mommy, when are we gonna have a whole wall covered in these purrches? MOL

Pawsitively Beautiful Tote Bag

A lot of ya’ may ‘member the pawsum tote bag mommy got fur her birthday. She still luvs it and so it has to be a pick on our gift list. It’s roomy enuff fur a blogger to carry their laptop or tablet in as well as all the things a lady might need in her purrse. And, buyin’ it means 71 anipals get fed. That’s a great deal.

Chatting Cats: Who Needs Privacy

(Dezi hears rumbling and the pitter patter of rain drops falling through the vent hood on the oven and starts to head back towards the bedroom. Mommy sees her and calmly says

 

 Dezi lays atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

     Dezi, honey, please stay up here with me and Raena. 

 

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

 

(Raena jumps up on the small perch sitting in front of the door and looks out. She turns back and begins to mew)

Sissy, it’s okay, it’s not a full blown storm, just a few rain drops. You know how much mommy hates it when you hide out under the bed all day. 

 

          Me’s not hidin’ Raena!!! Me’s checkin’ fur spiders and other varmints to keep you and mommy safe.

 

 Raena lays on small perch and looks out at the rain

 

 

Well, don’t you think you’d have found them already? Ya’ know, ifin there was anythin’ to find? You’s been under the bed most of the week. 

 

Dezi lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

          You never know Raena. Somethin’ could’a crawled in just now. And you know what a fraidy cat mommy is when it comes to spiders and other varmints.

 

 

Yep, mommy’s fraidy meter is off the charts when she sees those creepy crawlers. Hey, do you ‘member the other day when we were readin’ one of our furiends bloggys? You know the one, Bear cat and his new sisfur Ellie May?

 

          Yeah, what ‘bout it?

 

 Raena lays on shower bench and watches mommy pour litter in litter boxes

 

 

Well, you know how they were meowin’ ‘bout closed bathroom doors and how they wanted to be in there with their mommy to “watch”. I’s can’t believe she actually closed the door on them. Mommy better not get any ideas ’bout tryin’ that here. Anyways, you told them, their mommy was lucky that all they wanted to do was watch. Just what did you mean by that?

 

 Dezi lays in house of Liberty cat tree

 

 

          You know what me meant Raena. You take the cake when it comes to watchin’ mommy in the bathroom. Mommy’s always jokin’ ‘bout how she’s not had any bathroom purrivacy in well over 40 years. Most peeps with kitties can relate to that. But you take it another step further. 

 

I’s just tryin’ to be helpful sissy. You know, we’re Service Cats. It’s our job to help mommy with everythin’ so she can keep livin’ independently.

 

Dezi looks down from atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

          Yes Raena, we are Service Cats, and it is our job to help mommy. But trust me when me says, mommy doesn’t need your help to wipe her purrivates. 

 

Says who, sissy, you? Mommy helps us sometimes, I’s just tryin’ to return the favor.

 

          Oh Raena. Don’t you think ifin mommy needed your help, she wouldn’t be sayin’ things like, “RaenaBelle, get your paw out from under my hoohah”, or “Raena, leave my toilet paper alone.

 

 Raena lays on shower bench

 

 

She’s just tryin’ to be brave sissy. She always pats mine’s head and paws when I’s help. 

 

          Raena, she ain’t pettin’ you, she’s tryin’ to shoo you away. Anyways, me was tryin’ to tell awnty Kat, that she was lucky that all Bear and Ellie wanna do is watch. Even mommy says she’s never seen a kitty so enthralled in the purrocess that they stick their paws up there to try to help their human clean up. Who knew you’d go from unrollin’ the toilet paper to tryin’ to use it? You sure are a funny kitty sometimes. 

 

I’s gonna go tell mommy that you’re makin’ fun of me sissy. We’ll see then who gets the last laugh.

 

 Dezi plays

 

          Me’s not makin’ fun of ya’ Raena. Me’s tryin’ to help teach you what you’s s’posed to help with and not. C’mon, let’s go play befur the thunder boomers come back thru.

 

Raena bats the track ball whie looking down at her collar bells

 

 

I’s right behind ya’ sissy. Let’s see ifin mommy will give us some silvervine or nip to roll ‘round in.

 

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

 

Raena: Navy Blue

Dezi: Vibrant Blue
