Blest Sunday: Party Planning & Play Date Chit Chat

MeOW  Another week has passed and it’s time fur a purrfectly Blest Sunday. We are so behind in our visitin’ that it ain’t even funny. ‘Tween doctors’ pointments, lease re-certification stuffs and gettin’ ready fur mommy’s dental ‘pointment, there’s been little time fur the catputer. Mommy has purromissed us that all this extra stuffs is almost over and we’ll be back to normal real soon. 

 

 Dezi and Raena lay together on the floor

 

          I’s’ll sure be glad to get mommy back sissy. Even our play time has been shortened cuz of all the extra stuffs goin’ on right now. You know, we haven’t even gone strollin’ lately?.

Well Raena, it’s been a little hot to go strollin’ just cuz. It’s furinally summer, and swelterin’ hot outside. We’re really blest to be inside unner the air conditioner.

 

 Raena sits pretty at the edge of the kitchen

Come on mommy, just a little stroll?

 

 

          You’re right ‘bout that sissy. Even with the air conditioner runnin’ and a couple of fans, mommy’s been complainin’ ‘bout the heat and somethin’ she calls her own purrsonal summers. What are those anyways?

 

Don’t ask me, Raena. What would me know ‘bout purrsonal summers. Mommy’s been complainin’ ‘bout those fur years. Even in the middle of the winter, mommy talks ‘bout those purrsonal summers. It’s purrobably just another human expression fur nonsense. You know humans and their sayings; they’ve got one fur just ‘bout everythin’.

          They sure do, don’t they sissy?. Y, Just the other day you and me were meowin’ and playin’ in the back and mommy hollered somethin’ ‘bout us caterwaulin’. And then, you used your low meow that mommy doesn’t hear very offen and she came runnin’ to see what was goin’ on. 

 

 Dezi sits on the bathroom counter

 

Fur a second Raena, me thought she had done gone and brought home another kitty. There me was, sittin’ on the bathroom vanity when all of a sudden me caught sight of somethin’ outta the corner of me’s eye. Another kitty sittin’ there on the vanity right beside me. You were layin’ on the shower chair so me knew it wasn’t you. Me tried to ignore it, but it started to mimic everythin’ me did. Me got really close so me could give it a smell. It touched me’s nose, but there was nuffin’. No smell at all. So, me had to find out from mommy just what was goin’ on. One pain in me’s hiney sisfur is purrlenty. Me never agreed to 2!!!

 

          Pain in your hiney?! I’s thought you luvved me sissy. You said you did. 

 

Dezi lays on bathroom vanity

Me does Raena. But you can still be a pain sometimes. Fankfully, mommy said that extra kitty on the vanity was just all me’s beauty reflectin’ off of me. MeOW  That was a close one. Me sure is blest to have a mommy that keeps her word. 

 

 

 Raena lays on the shower chair

 

          I’s don’t know sissy. another kitty to play with might not be such a bad thing. Altho’ I’s do agree, we are very blest kitties to have such a luvvin’ mommy.

 

 Dezi and Raena play with the Tower of Tracks

 

Me plays with you Raena. Just cuz you don’t ever get tired, isn’t reason enuff to have to share everythin’ with yet another kitty. Besides, we’re blest with lots of furiends. We should schedule another play date sometime. Me has a feelin’ mommy’s not gonna be up to much this week since she has her dental ‘pointment to remove the remainin’ bad teethies and get those dentures she’s been talkin’ ‘bout. So, why don’t we have a few furiends over fur a play date pawrty. 

 

          Really sissy? I’s would luvs that. Are you gonna chaperone? You know mommy won’t be able too, and there’s no way she’ll let us have company ifin you’re not in charge.

 

 Dezi and Raena on the Liberty Cat Tree

 

Yes Raena, me will chaperone. We fur sure oughtta invite our sweet tuxie furiend, Erin the cat princess. We may not have any real mouseys ‘round here fur her but we can get purrlenty of cream. And yes, we can invite Simon, Timmy and his furmily, and… 

 

          Hey sissy!!! Valentine just got a new stroller. I’s bet he’d be up fur a play date party too. Maybe he could even stroll on over. We don’t know when Marv is scheduled to arrive at awnty Barb’s place, but maybe angel Nellie could fly in. Kittens  There’s just too many furiends to name all of ‘em. You’re are so right sissy. We are so blest to have so many pawsum furiends. A meowsy big fanky fanks to all of you.

Yep Raena, we are blest. Everywhere we look is a blessing. We were contacted by Dan and his amazin’ kitty Whiskey. They were puttin’ together a list of the top independent cat bloggers and wanted to include us. You can check out their list here. We feel blest to be included. There’s some really great blogs listed. We’d like to remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the many blessings in your lives.

This is mine’s collar bell selfie fur the week.

 

 

          Don’t furget Sunday Selfies with the Kitties Blue, sissy. We may not take actual selfies, but mommy does luv those close-ups. We better start cleanin’ up and maybe get mommy to plant up some cat grass fur our play date pawrty. I’s invitin’ all of you. It’s gonna be a celebration of furiends in honor of mommy gettin’ rid of all those painful teethies and all the blessings the good Lord gave us.

Blest Sunday: Chatty Cats Plan A Party

Welcome to a very special Blest Sunday. What makes it special, you ask?

 

 Dezi watches Raena atop the Liberty cat tree

 

          Yeah sissy, what makes this Blest Sunday so special? 

 

Me’s so glad you asked. It’s special cuz you’re here. All our furiends are here, and that makes everythin’ purrfect.

 

 Dezi looks at Raena at the top of the Liberty cat tree

 

          I’s thought you meant me, sissy?.

 

 Dezi looks up at Raena while Raena looks off in the distance from atop the Liberty cat tree

 

Me does Raena. You’re special too. As most peeps know by now, we only post on Monday, Wednesday, Furiday and of course, on Blest Sunday. And this year, your furst year here with mommy and me, your Gotchaday is on a Fursday. We wanna throw you a pawsum Gotchaday pawrty, Raena; but we don’t normally post on Fursdays. And, this week in purrticular is gonna be a busy one fur mommy. So, since we celebrate Birthday’s and Gotchaday’s all month long, we’ve decided to have your pawrty on Furiday the 9th. And, guess what? 

 

          What sissy? What’s better than a pawrty weekend?

 

 Dezi looks up at Raena atop the Liberty cat tree

 

Everypawdy’s invited!!! All our furiends and awnties and uncles, and yes, Simon. 

 

          Oh sissy, that’s pawsum!!! I’s can’t hardly wait. But sissy, why’s mommy gonna be so busy this week? Is she gonna have time to purrpare fur mine’s pawrty?

 

 Dezi sniffs tree ledge while Raena watches her

 

Well Raena, mommy has her regular monthly doctor’s ‘pointment on Monday, and then a dentist ‘pointment on Fursday. And, it’s time fur us to recertify our lease, so mommy has to get all our papers and stuffs in order so she can turn ‘em in on time. Ya’ know, so we can have a place to live fur another year.

 

          Is that why mommy’s been so stressed lately?  And who’s gonna go with mommy to her ‘pointments? 

 

 Dezi and Raena look at the ceiling from the Liberty cat tree

 

Yes, Raena, lease re-cert always makes mommy stressed. She says they keep wantin’ to invade our purrivacy more and more each year. Mommy says it sometimes makes her feel like a trained seal; jump thru this hoop, and now this one. And, don’t furget to smile and be grateful the whole time; cuz don’ch’a know at the end, you’ll have this meowvelous 400 sq. ft. ‘partment where we’re gonna bug ya’ to death with inspections. As fur those ‘pointments, it’s s’posed to storm all week, so you’ll be the one accompanyin’ mommy. Besides, since mommy’s dental ‘pointment is on your Gotchaday, mommy said ya’ll would be goin’ somewhere special so you can get a supurr special treat. Mommy purromissed to bring somethin’ special home fur me too. 

 

          Really sissy? I’s gonna get a supurr special treat? (Raena gets excited and starts spinning around) Now I’s really can’t wait!!! 

 

 Dezi looks up at Raena and hisses on the liberty cat tree

 

Well Raena, you’re gonna have to wait a few more days. By the way, one of our newer furiends said they didn’t know what a Gotchaday was. We ‘member bein’ new to the innernets once and not knowin’ ‘bout Gotchadays too, so we thought we should ‘splain. A Gotchaday is the day a rescued furry goes to live in their furever home. It can also be called an Adoptaversary, Adoption Day or in some cases, it’s the day your humans have decided to make your Birthday. Offen, peeps don’t know the actual birthday of their beluvved furry, so they will just assign a day to celebrate.

 

          And that’s okay too sissy. Whatever day you celebrate your furry, is the purrfect day.

 

 Dezi looks our window and Raena lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

Sure ‘nuff Raena. One of the reasons we celebrate all month long is that mommy rarely has money on our special day; so she figgers ifin we celebrate all month, surely at some point in that month she’ll have enuff green papers to buy us a little somethin’ special. Even ifin it’s just a bag of cheap treats or a dollar mousey from the dollar store. So, every day is a special day in our house. 

 

          I’s like that sissy. It also means, lots of extra cuddles and luvvin’ all month long. I’s did hear mommy sayin’ that we were gonna be goin’ to her favorite beauty store, Ulta, this week.

Me heard that too, Raena. Fanks to awnty Ellen who sent mommy a gift card, she can actually buy somethin’ this trip.

 

Snowball in ball gown

Snowball dressed to the nines fur the big Gone with the Wind pawrty we had in 2015.

 

          Yep sissy, mommy must’ve cried a million tears when she got that gift card. Knowin’ that awnty Ellen had been dealin’ with Snowball’s illness and then sudden loss, and yet, she was still thinkin’ ‘bout mommy’s special day. 

 

Ya’ know Raena, we luv all our furiends so very much, and purray fur them every day. It broke our hearts when Snowball went to heaven, just like with all our furiends who have joined me’s sis Lexi. We just don’t unnerstand why these things have to happen.

 

 Raena lays on nip mat

 

          I’s fur sure don’t unnerstand it sissy. But maybe it’s cuz God knows there’s another furry out there who needs you more. So, He has to make an openin’ and takes the one who is sufferin’ the most to be with Him. We all know, that once ya’ leave this world, you return to your once purrfect state. There’s no more pain, sickness, or old age. I’s know you and mommy really miss Lexi (God rest her), but ifin she hadn’t gone to heaven, who knows where I’s might have been?. 

 

 Raena with the cheese and mac noodles from MAnonymous

 

Yep, Raena, that’s so true. Anyways, as much as mommy and me miss Lexi, we luv you very much and are really glad you’re pawrt of our furmily now. We should also say a meowsy big fank you to awnty Anonymous fur givin’ mommy some green papers fur her birthday, and sendin’ her some more of that powdered cheese and mac noodles. She even told mommy more of that shelf milk to make it up with was on it’s way.

 

          Oh sissy, we are so blest to have so much.

 

That’s true, Raena. We are blest indeed. We give fanks fur all of our furiends, and ask God to bless ya’ll beyond your dreams. We also wanna remind you to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. 

 

          Let’s link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and see ifin we can get mommy to give us some of those treats.

 

 Dezi, watches RAena walk off the Liberty cat tree

 

Me’s with ya’ Raena. Me does wanna tell everypawdy that cuz of all the lease stuffs and mommy’s ‘pointments this week, we’re gonna be takin’ most of this week off. We will of course be back to celebrate Raena’s Gotchaday on Furiday, and we hope all of you will join us.

 

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