Blest Sunday: Sweating Like A Pig In A Smoker

Dezi:  MeOW  C’mon Raena, it’s Blest Sunday. Me wants to count our Blessings. 

 

Raena lays on the litterbox and sleeps

At least this plastic’s a little cool.

 

 

 

          Raena:  How can you even think in this heat, sissy? I’s just wanna find a cool place to lay and stretch out fur a good nap.

Dezi:  Purrlease Raena, It’s been hotter than this befur. We live in the South, and heat’s just a pawrt of it. 

 

          Raena:  Yeah sissy, but not in the house. The house is s’posed to be cool. Isn’t that what the air conditioner’s fur? Even mommy’s sweatin’. I’s heard her say last night that we were way past the glistenin’ of a Southern lady and well on our way to sweatin’ like pigs in a smoker.

Dezi:  Me heard her Raena. Me even got me’s fur soaked when me sat in her lap fur a little lap luvvin’. She said the air conditioner wasn’t workin’ purr-opurrly. Me saw her turn it down several times. And me heard her yellin’ at it to work. She said it ain’t s’posed to be 80 degrees in here when the thremostat is set on 74°. She even tried the o’l human trick of hittin’ it. Hmmmpht  Humans think that hittin’ electronics will somehow make ‘em work. Me’s never quite unnerstood that concept, but lots of humans do it. 

 

          Raena:  MOL  I’s seen it too sissy. So, are you meowin’ that it doesn’t actually work? Cuz you know, when I’s can’t get our ‘lectric toys to work, all I’s have to do is whacky paw ‘em a few times and they suddenly start workin’. 

 

Dezi:  There’s a big difference in you furinally whacky pawin’ the power button and humans slappin’ at the sides of a machine Raena. Anyways, least we have fans. Did you know that peeps used to think sweatin’ was a way to lose weight and get skinny? Sure ‘nuff, peeps used to pay good money fur stuffs to wrap themselves up in that would make ‘em sweat. Hmmmpht  We didn’t have to pay anythin’ fur this. See? You can find a Blessing in everythin’, ya’ just have to look. 

 

Dezi lays on liberty tree and Raena on the small perch looking at each other in front of the door.

 

 

 

          Raena:  You’re right sissy. Altho’ I’s don’t think that losin’ weight pawrt works…mommy hasn’t lost anythin’. I’s mean, I’s didn’t put her on a scale or nuffin’, but… 

 

Dezi: Of course me is Raena, me’s always right. Me’s older and wiser and…

 

          Raena:  You’re old alright sissy. I’s not so sure ‘bout that wiser thing, but ifin that’s what you wanna tell yourself… 

 

Dezi:  RaenaBelle Mayce, that’s not very nice. 

 

          Raena: Sorry sissy. Do you want a hug?

Me’s gettin’ purrlenty of luvvin’ from mommy.

 

 

 

Dezi:  No Raena, stay back. Your ‘pawlogy’s enuff. By the way, do you see anythin’ innerestin’ outside? 

 

          Raena:  Nope sissy, not a thing. I’s haven’t even seen any birds. I’s did see one of those annoyin’ gnats in your brekky a while ago tho’. Ifin you don’t want the gnats to steal it, you better go claim it. 

 

Dezi:  What ‘bout yours Raena? Ifin they’re tryin’ to steal me’s brekky, then they’re purrobaly in yours too. 

 

          Raena:  Nah sissy, I’s finished mine’s a few minutes ago and I’s even had a few bites of yours. (Raena snickers a bit as she licks her paw and wipes her face) Guess I’s was purretty hungry this meownin’. Meowin’ of, we’re purretty Blest to have such tasty noms. And a mommy who only wants the bestest fur us.

Dezi:  That we are Raena, that we are. And, a few of our facebook furiends got together and donated some green papers so mommy could have gas money to get back to the dentist fur some adjustments on her dentures. We sure do ‘purreciate everyone that helped. Meowin’ of furiends, we have the bestest furiends in the universe. 

 

          Raena:  Oh sissy, I’s luvs our furiends so much. I’s wish we could all have a big get together and meet up fur to fur to flesh. Wouldn’t that be just wonderful? 

 

Close up of Dezi's face, selfie

Me’s ready fur more luvvin’ mommy.

 

 

 

Dezi:  It would Raena. But fur now, we’ll just have to settle fur readin’ their stories and seein’ their fotos. As we do each week, we’d like to remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. And we wanna fank each of you fur bein’ Blessings in ours.

          Raena:  And don’t furget to check out all the Sunday Selfies over at the Kitties Blue. I’s gonna go back to mine’s purrch now and see ifin anything’s goin’ on outside. 

 

Dezi:  Me’s gonna go get some more lap luvvin’ Raena. Enjoy the purrch. 

 

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

Blest Sunday: Blessings Floor To Ceiling And Beyond

Dezi:  MeOW  HiSsssssssss RaenaBelle!!! Quit jumpin’ on me!!! 

 

Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

 

 

          Raena:  I’s didn’t jump on you sissy, I’s jumped over you. I’s was in a hurry to get to the purrch. I’s thought I’s saw somethin’ outside. 

 

Dezi sit on cat tree and Raena sits on small perch while looking out the door

 

 

 

Dezi: Ya’ still need to stop. How many times has mommy told you to slow down Raena? Besides, it’s Blest Sunday and was time fur brekky. What ifin mommy had a been tryin’ to bring us our plates at that very minute? Y, All our food would’a ended up on the floor. We’re not heathens, we don’t eat off the floor. 

 

Dezi and Raena eating

 

 

 

          Meow fur yourself sissy, sometimes I’s find all kinds of yummy things on the floor. Y, Just the other day mommy dropped a piece of cheese in the kitchen when she was makin’ her smashed tater with cheese. Ifin I’s hadn’t grabbed it up when I’s did, she would’a throwed it in the trash. What a waste that would’a been. I’s luvs me some cheese. Ya’ know our china platters are fine, but I’s not gonna miss an oppurr-tunity to eat me somethin’ tasty just cuz it’s not served with silver and gold trimmins. See, sometimes you can find Blessings on the floor. Just be careful it’s food and not a bug. 

 

(Dezi shakes her head) Oh Raena, sometimes me just doesn’t know what to do with you. 

 

          Oh sissy, just luvs me. You know you were just like me once. Mommy says so. She says when you were young you couldn’t wait fur her to open the door in the meownin’ and put the purrch in front of it. She says you used to sit on it fur hours and chirp and chortle at anythin’ that came by. 

 

Dezi sits on small perch looking outside

 

 

 

 

Yeah Raena, me did. It seems so long ago now. It also seems like there was more to see back then. We used to have stray kitties and all kinds of wildlife play on our porch. It’s gotten so hot, ain’t nuffin’ outside doin’ much of anythin’. Y, just last night it was still 104°F at 9:30 p.m.. That’s just too hot.

 

          Yep sissy, it is. You’d think the old bobcat and the coon family would be knockin’ on our door askin’ fur food. It’s gotta be too hot to hunt.

 

Me’s been wonderin’ where they were Raena. We haven’t seen either of ‘em all season. Maybe when it starts coolin’ off in a couple of months they’ll show up. Fankfully, we furinally got a new lease signed. Our rent went up $30.00, so mommy may have to put her dentures on hold fur a bit. It takes quite a bit of gas to get there every week and she’s been drivin’ on fumes the last couple times. With more money we don’t have goin’ to rent and nowhere to take green papers from, that drive is purretty much the only thing left to cut.

 

Raena lays on scratching pad

 

 

 

          Well sissy, I’s guess that’ll give her more time to try to fix the mess the manager made and figger out what they can and can’t do befur it all starts again. Ya’ know the manager told mommy that they’re gonna be “rehabing” these ‘pawrtments soon and that they’re gonna wanna do a move out and then move us back in and start all this again in just a few months. Mommy told ‘em they couldn’t do that cuz she has a years lease, and utilities that be in her name that she has to pay each month. While she might not have had to put down a depawsit, those companies charge to turn it on and move it and stuffs. Not to mention the stress mommy’s just went thru. We fur sure can’t be doin’ this again that soon. We all need time to recupurrate.  

 

Yeah Raena, the way they treat us just ain’t right. It’s not like we’re poor and need help by choice. And mommy certainly ain’t disabled by choice. Ifin mommy could change our situation, she would in a heartbeat. Our mommy ain’t afraid of work. Y, Befur her accident, she worked 2 and 3 jobs at a time to make sure she could affurd everythin’ she needed and wanted. 

 

          I’s heard sissy. She says she was young and dumb back then and didn’t save, so that’s why we’re in the shape we’re in now. Altho’ I’s know mommy wishes she could do more and could give us more, and had more money, I’s glad things happened the way they did. Y, ifin they hadn’t who knows where you and me would be? We might not have ever been saved?. I’s don’t even wanna think ‘bout what it would have been like ifin mommy hadn’t showed up and whisked me away to this Blest life. 

 

Dezi lays on liberty tree and Raena on the small perch looking at each other in front of the door.

 

 

 

Me neither, Raena, me neither. We might not be rich by the standards the world uses, but when it comes to luv, we’re bazillionaires. 

 

          You got that right sissy. We’ve got the bestest mommy ever, altho’ we know all of you think you’ve got the bestest pawrent, and that’s okay. And meowin’ of all of ya’, we can’t ‘magine a life without you.

We wouldn’t want to Raena. We have the bestest furiends in the whole universe. God smiled on us the day we met you, our dear furiends, and we ask Him each and every day to keep and Bless you and your families. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. Blessings are all ‘round us, we just have to stop and see ‘em.

          So true sissy, so true. Let’s link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and go get us some mommy luvvin’. But furst, I’s wanna meow Fanky fank You God, fur all our blessings. And fanky fank all of you fur bein’ pawrt of our Blessings each day.

 

Me seconds that Raena. C’mon, me will race ya’ to mommy’s lap.

 

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

Blest Sunday: We Are SupawStars

MeOW C’mon Raena, it’s time fur our Blest Sunday posty. We’ve got so much to meow ‘bout today. And, we’re furinally rested up after havin’ stayed up all night and day fur 3 nights and 4 days straight with mommy. Altho’ ifin me’s meowin’ the truth, me must admit we all had a few cat naps in the sittin’ chair. Me’s purretty sure me heard mommy snorin’ a time or two befur joltin’ herself awake. Mommy keeps sayin’ she’s gettin’ to old fur these all nighters, and me totally agrees. Me’s way to old to be stayin’ up that many hours a day. Doesn’t she know us kitties need our beauty naps? Hmmmpht  Me must’ve looked like somethin’ an old tabby cat would’a drug in after the second night, and me wouldn’t even wanna know what me must’ve looked like after the third.

 

Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

 

 

          Yeah sissy, I’s not a big fan of the all nighters. I’s need mine’s mommy and me cuddle time in the bed on the nice soft sweet smellin’ sheets. But, it seems the denture man at the new dentist office only comes once a week fur a couple of hours in the meownin’, so mommy has to be there really early so he can take the impressions back to the City with him. And since summer furinally arrived, mommy tries to do things either early in the day or late, so we’re not outside durin’ the hottest pawrt of the day. We’re so very fanky fankful to have air conditionin’ in the car, but mommy says nuffin’ works all that great in triple digit heat and she doesn’t want us to get sick and over heated. 

 

Dezi lays on scratcher licking paw

Me’s a real mess. Me needs a good bath and a year of naps.

 

 

 

Yep Raena, we’re so Blest to have a mommy that cares ‘bout our well bein’ so much. Me’s so happy to have her as a mommy. 

 

          Really sissy? Cuz that’s not what you were meowin’ Furiday when mommy harnessed you up and strapped you into the stroller. 

 

Dezi lays in stroller with tiger kitty holster harness on.

Me doesn’t wanna go to the V-E-T mommy.

 

 

 

Well Raena, me doesn’t ‘member you bein’ too happy ‘bout goin’ to the V-E-T the other day either. Me’s on to mommy’s tricks. She may call it a mommy and me day out, but when she’s all sneaky ‘bout the leavin’ time, me knows it can only mean one thing…Doctor Grabby and Stabby. Fankfully, me only got one jab and mommy says so long as me stays healthy, it’ll be the last stab fur 3 years. Seems Doctor Grabby and Stabby has furinally agreed to give us the 3 year rabies vaccination ‘stead of the one year. 

 

          Uh, Us, sissy? Wha’ch’a meowin’ ‘bout, us? I’s didn’t get jabbed with anythin’ on mine’s trip. 

 

Dezi climbs out of stroller at the Vet's office

Maybe me can make me’s escape befur anypawdy sees me.

 

 

 

Just you wait Raena, your time’s a’comin’. Anyways, Doctor Grabby and Stabby said me was healthy and looked good. ‘Course, that made mommy really happy. So happy in fact, we stopped by the pet store fur some goodies. Mommy was gonna buy us 1 bag of those cheap treats (Kittles) we’ve eaten in the past, but they were on clearance fur .70¢, so she bought every bag they had. 

 

          Really sissy? Every bag? What do you wanna bet that we won’t eat any of ‘em? That’s the kitty way, right? Kitty likes somethin’, human goes nuts and buys out the store and kitty won’t touch it again. That’s one of the furst lessons you taught me.

 

Dezi lays on the table at the vet's office

C’mon mommy, me feels great. Let’s get outta here befur

somepawdy comes in.

 

 

 

Yeah Raena, that’s the rule. But, me thinks we oughtta at least eat a few bites to show our gratitude fur mommy at least tryin’. That’s another thing we kitties do. You know, gotta keep mommy on her toes and all.

 

Raena looks back from her dinner plate

 

 

 

          Okay sissy, that sounds like a great plan. Ya’ know, we need to say a meowsy big Fanky fank you to awnty Susan fur the green papers. Havin’ so many ‘pointments out of town last week they came in really handy when mommy had to buy gas to get the car down the road. Hey, meowin’ of fanky fanks, I’s saw our furiend Valentine the handsum black Persian from Noir Kitty Mews, nominated us fur an award today. 

 

SupawStar Blog Award Badge

 

 

 

Me saw it too Raena. He nominated us fur the SupawStars Spotlight Award. We’re so honored, fank you Valentine. We’re s’posed to nominate 5 bloggies to receive this award. 

 

SupawStar Award Badge,

 

 

 

          Only 5 sissy? Kittens!!! That’s so hard, we think all our furiends are SupawStars. Ya’ know, we don’t know fur sure who purrticipates in these kinds of things, so ifin we nominate you, you’re not obligated in any way to post; we’d just like to let others know ‘bout how special you are. Mine’s furst nomination is:

 

1.  Awnty Paulette from The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap. She’s a great writer who uses the proceeds from her book sales to help rescue doggies.

 

2.  Feline Opines is mine’s second nomination. They’re a great bunch of kittes who recently wrote their own book, a devotional from a kitty’s point of view. Once things settle down a bit ‘round here, we’ll be havin’ ‘em over fur a play date to discuss said book. In the meantime, head over and check ‘em out. 

 

It’s me’s turn Raena. Technically, me should’a went furst. Anyways…

 

3.  Brian and the gang always bring a smile and they do so much to help kitties in need.

 

And… 

 

4.  Hairballs and Hissyfits almost always make us laugh. 

 

And last but certainly not least is:

 

5.  Da Phenny and his new housemate, Neilson. Ifin ya’ wanna laugh till ya’ cry and piddle in your pants, you can’t miss their bloggy. 

 

          I’s wanna pick some more furiends sissy. Who made these rules anyhow? Only 5…Hmmmpht!!!  

 

Dezi rolls on yeowww nip heart

 

 

 

Yeah Raena, we have so many pawsum furiends and the truth is, we think you’re all SupawStars. So, even ifin we didn’t lest you, purrlease feel furee to take the SupawStar award and post it on your bloggy. And ‘member to nominate 5 SupawStars of your own. We better get this wrapped up so we can try to visit our furiends and get caught up. But furst, we’d like to remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your life.
