Chatting Cats: It’s Party Time

Hey everypawdy, it’s me RaenaBelle. Are ya’ll ready to pawrty?!! Well come on in and let’s celebrate. There’s food and fun fur everyone. I’s gotta tell ya’, you all look pawsitively gawjus in your masks. Sissy and I’s wanna fanky fank all of ya’ fur comin’ to celebrate with us. 9 years ago on November 1st, sis Dezi came into this world; and a couple of weeks later on the 22nd of November, she chose mommy to save her and be her furever mommy. 

 

Dezi and Raena on party invitation for the Masquerade party

 

          That’s true Raena. Me had no idea what me’s life was gonna be like that day; but me knew without any doubt that me belonged with mommy. Our life hasn’t always been easy or fun, but it’s the bestest life this kitty girl could have ever asked fur. Me got an amazin’ sissyfur in Lexi; and she innerduced me to this pawsum world of the innernet and all our furiends. Everypawdy come on in and make yourself at home.

Look’it sissy, I’s got an ice cream truck to come by so everypawdy could choose their favorite. You can even have seconds or thirds. (Raena giggles as she wipes a smidge of ice cream from her whiskers

 

          Looks like you’ve already had some ice cream Raena.

Well sissy, I’s had to try it out and make sure the ice cream man brought the good stuffs. I’s also hired a caterer to cook us up some tasty eats on the grill and bring veggie platters fur those who don’t eat meat. Don’t worry, ifin ya’ purrfur your meat raw, just let the grill master know. We don’t drink, so the catnip teas and nip juleps are the strongest drinks we have, but who needs alcohol to have fun…right?.

Blest Sunday: Thanks For Being The Best Friends In The Universe

MeOW  (Dezi follows mommy and Raena mumbling to herself)  Kittens, Me sure wishes the weather would make up it’s mind. One minute it’s cold and the next we’re pantin’. Me thinks me may have gotten mommy’s “pussonal summer disease” (hot flashes). Ifin only me could roll up me’s furs like she does her pants legs. Hmmmpht  And what’s up with the clocks? Mommy keeps goin’ from room to room tryin’ to figger out why some say one thing and others say another. 

 

Raena's profile while sitting on cat tree

 

 

 

          Sissy, who are you meowin’ too? And what’s wrong? Don’t you know it’s Blest Sunday? I’s can’t wait to count our Blessings today. 

 

Who can count anythin’ over that squeaky fan? It’s on me’s last nerve!!!

 

          Aaaaaw Sissy, c’mon, snap out of it. You luvs Blest Sunday’s; and you fur sure know we’re Blest. Mommy’s gonna try to put some more oil on the fan, so hopefully it’ll quit squealin’ soon. And I’s asked the crazy lady in the box (Alexa dot) ‘bout the clocks and learned that we were s’posed to turn our clocks back last night, so that’s why some of ‘em are wrong. As fur mommy’s purrsonal summer’s, I’s don’t think those are contagious. Besides, it’s your birthday/gotchaday month; that’s like the biggest Blessing we kitties can ever have. 

 

Dezi looks out door from atop liberty cat tree

 

 

 

Yeah, you’re right Raena. And, peace reigns in our home once again. Now that’s always a Blessing. Ya’ know, me also wanted to meow Fank you to awnty Anonymous and awnty Vonda fur sendin’ me some green papers fur me’s birthday. Me knows how ‘purrtant it was fur you to have your surgery, but me really does ‘purreciate that they wanted me to have somethin’ special. Me’s birthday kind’a got lost in the fray, but they helped to make me feel ‘purrtant too. Me even got birthday cards from Pipo and Dalton and Valentine.

          You’re always special sissy. That’s why we’re throwin’ you a pawsum pawrty on the 14th. Anyways, I’s got some Blessings I’s wanna give fanky fanks fur too. Fanky fank you awnty Anonymous, awnty Jeanne, awnty Cindy, awnty Sandee, awnty Juliea and Patzy, awnty Claire, Zorro and Pixie, awnty Theresa, awnty Kerry and Valentine, awnty Susan M, awnty Susan C, awnty Susan T, awnty Ava, awnty Christine, awnty Vonda and our furiends at the Kitty Klub fur helpin’ me to have mine’s surgery. And fanky fanks to all of you fur the luvs, well wishes and purrayers. Mommy says I’s on the road to recovery and gettin’ better and better every day. Altho’ mine’s eyes still hurt a little, they’re hurtin’ in a whole new place. But, I’s can see and blink like never befur. It’s amazin’.

That’s pawsum Raena. Me’s glad you’re feelin’ better. And me can’t wait fur me’s pawrty. It’s gonna be so much fun. Me was just thinkin’ ‘bout how Blest we are to be a pawrt of this wonderful world of pet bloggers. What an amazing life we have. You know, besides bein’ me’s birthday and gotchaday month, it’s also Fankgivin’ month here in the U.S.. Me’s very fankful we were furtunate enuff to be born in this great Country called America.

          Ain’t that the truth sissy. We are Blest with a capital B. Ya’ know sissy, I’s luvs Blest Sundays as much as you do. I’s also like that we get to post our selfies.

Chatting Cats: Celebrating Furevers And Leaving The Cage Behind

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. How are ya’ll doin’? It’s furinally here, the day mommy said we could celebrate mine’s Gotcha Day. Mommy came and rescued me from a cage in a smelly house 2 years ago on June 8th. I’s was a scared little kitten, shakin’ all over with lots of gunk in mine’s eyes and nose. Mommy says she could feel the tension in mine’s body when the lady handed me to her. Mommy says contrary to mine’s breed, there wasn’t anythin’ floppy ‘bout me. I’s was shaky and stiff as a board. Mommy says her heart broke fur me and mine’s littermates cuz she couldn’t ‘magine what could make such a young kitty be that scared and I’s wasn’t tellin’.

I’s ‘member the exact minute all that tension left and I’s furinally quit shakin’ and flopped like a purr-opurr Ragdoll. Yep, mommy carried me outside of that place and sat me in her lap. I’s could feel us movin’ but I’s had never been in a car befur, so I’s didn’t unnerstand what was happenin’. And then, mommy picked up mine’s stiff little body, held me close and looked into mine’s gunky blue eyes and said she was gonna luvs me furever and ever and that I’s was gonna live with her. She said I’s would never have to be ‘fraid again and then she kissed me and held me close to her heart. I’s could feel her heart beatin’ and just knew she meant it. That’s the minute mine’s life was furever changed fur the better. And, I’s never looked back.

 

Raena hanging on the Liberty cat tree playing whacky paw with Dezi

Oh c’mon now, you’ve been here fur a couple of weeks

now, are you ever gonna stop?

 

 

 

          Me ‘members that day too Raena. Kittens!!! ‘Pawrently, you’d never seen a toy or cat tree or bed or anythin’ else. You were like a tornado runnin’ and jumpin’ all over the house. It’s like you didn’t know what to play with furst. 

 

Raena plays with the flying toy

I’s gonna ketch it this time sissy.

 

 

 

I’s didn’t sissy. I’s couldn’t believe how blest you were. I’s didn’t know a kitty could have so much pawsum stuffs. All I’s had ever known was a cage with a pawtty box in it. And mine’s littermates of course, but they’d never seen any toys either. What a life we have. And then you and mommy told me that I’s had awnties and uncles and lots and lots of furiends who already luvved me. It was almost too good to be true. I’s was ‘fraid to go to sleep that furst night. I’s thought I’s might wake up and find that it had all been a dream.

 

Dezi lays on scratcher yawning

 

 

 

          Nope Raena, it wasn’t no dream, it’s been me’s nightmare. MOL  Me’s just kiddin’. You’re alright fur a bratty li’l sisfur. Me sometimes wonders ifin sis Lexi thought ‘bout me that way. Anyways, me saw our furiend Valentine from Noir Kitty Mews hopped in his stroller and headed to our house to join in the celebration.

Raena's Gotchaday card from Pipo and Dalton

 

 

 

 

Did you see the cutesy smilebox card he made fur me, sissy? Pipo and Dalton made me a card too. I’s so blest to have such amazin’ furiends. Fanky fank you all. Ya’ know, this month is almost over and with it goes Cat Adoption Month. But we think every month is Cat Adoption Month as well as every day. There are so many kitties out there that need savin’. Shelters and Rescues are almost always full to overflowin’ with amazin’ kitties just waitin’ fur their furever to show up and tell them they are luvved and will never have to be ‘fraid again. Maybe you’re not ready to adopt a new kitty, but you can still help. Ya’ know fosterin’ is a great way fur kitties to find their furevers, ‘specially ifin they’re one of the fraidy cats that doesn’t do well in cages.

 

 

Dezi lays stretched out on scratcher

 

 

 

          That’s true Raena. But peeps can also donate their time to volunteer. Ya’ know they could go and play with the kitties and luv on ‘em and help socialize ‘em. And shelters and rescues are always in need of supplies like foods, towels, litter, cleaners and all kinds of things. All one has to do is check with their local shelter or rescue and see what they might need at the moment. Easy peasy, it is. Every so offen mommy sacks up some of our old toys and foods that we get and don’t eat and we donate to those kitties less furtunate. And, mommy sometimes drives ‘round lookin’ fur signs of stray kitties who might be hungry. Ya’ don’t have to be rich to help, everypawdy can help in some way. 

 

Raena lays sleeping on mommy's lap

Mine’s favorite place in the whole wide universe is mommy’s lap.

 

 

 

 

Oh sissy, those are all great ideas. Ya’ know what would make mine’s celebration even more pawsum? Knowin’ that we helped to make some kitty’s dream of a furever come true. Fanky fank you all fur celebratin’ with me. Why don’t you take a minute today to see what it is that you might could do fur the less furtunate kitties in your area. Now, let’s go eat some pizza and play with the nip toys. I’s even told mommy to pull out the silvervine.

   

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