Blest Sunday: National Cat Day

MeOW Raena? Why is it that you think you need to take up the whole bed?

 

 Dezi lays atop the liberty cat tree while Raena stands sniffing at the shelf

 

 

 

          Meeee? What ‘bout you? Stretchin’ out and givin’ me the old whacky paw while I’s tryin’ to sleep?!! 

 

Sleep? You scratched me while givin’ mommy a massage.

 

          Well sissy, ifin you weren’t takin’ up the whole bed, you wouldn’t have gotten scratched. 

 

 Dezi looks at Raena from atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

That doesn’t even make any sense Raena. Have you been on the nip already this meownin’? 

 

     Girls, Be Nice. I need both of you next to me when I sleep. You know I can’t sleep without ya’. Now apologize and let’s get to your Blest Sunday posty.

Sorry mommy. Sorry Raena. Mommy’s right, we need to get to our Blest Sunday post. We’re blest to have a bed to lay on and stretch out on. We’re blest to have a furever home full of luv. We’re blest to have furiends and family that luv and suppurrt us.

 

 Dezi and Raena laying on the bed

 

 

          I’s sorry too, sissy. We are very Blest. Hey, did you see mommy’s calendar? It says today is National Cat Day. I’s thought every day was Cat Day, so I’s pawed in to google and found out that National Cat Day started in 2005 to bring awareness to all the homeless kitties in the world. And, of course, to celebrate the luvs of a cat.

 

 Dezi lays on the brown cat tree in front of the window

 

 

 

That’s true Raena. Me was just meowin’ ‘bout how Blest we are. There are thousands upon thousands of kitties who will never know the luv of a human or the warmth of their very own bed. Some will never even know the feelin’ of a full tummy. It makes us so sad to think ‘bout those kitties less furtunate than us. As most peeps know, we’re a purretty poor family when it comes to the green papers. But, we are teemin’ with luv. Ya’ know, me’s birthday is Wednesday. 7 years ago me was a sickly kitty who purrobably would have died ifin not fur mommy. We wish every kitty could have a luvvin’ furever home. There’s so much that can be done to help these kitties. Even ifin ya’ don’t have green papers. 

 

 Raena lays in house on liberty cat tree

Even mommy can take a decent foto every once in a while. MOL

 

 

 

          Sure ‘nuff sissy. You can volunteer at a shelter or rescue, donate old towels, sheets, toys, cleanin’ supplies, food and so much more. Maybe, you’re good with the camera. You don’t have to be a purrfessional, just willin’ to donate a little time to take a few fotos of kitties waitin’ in shelters to be posted online. A good foto is worth a thousand words. And, it just might be the thing that helps get that kitty adopted. Or maybe ya’ got some energy to burn and can spend some time just playing with and socializin’ some kitties. A confident kitty stands a far better chance of getting’ adopted than one who cowers in their pawtty box.

Don’t furget those of us in social media Raena. We can all share, share and share some more. Ya’ never know who might see that post. Me knows mommy plans to spend some extra time with us today, just like she does every day. She says we celebrate cat day every day and she wouldn’t change it fur the world.

 

          Blest kitties are we, sissy. I’s think you have a fanky fank ya’ to meow out too sissy. 

 

Me sure does, Raena. Me wants to fank awnty Vonda fur sendin’ some green papers fur me’s birthday. Mommy says we need food and litter most, so she’s gonna put those green papers with hers to get us some. Awnty Vonda said that was fine, so long as mommy got us some special somethin’ with some of those green papers. So, mommy got us a new throw fur the bed. It’s soft and cozy warm. Fank you very much. And fank you all fur bein’ our furiends. Don’t furget to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your life.

Chatting Cats: She Ain’t No Spring Chick

Hey Raena, what are you doin’ in the stroller? It’s brekky time.

 

Raena lays in the stroller

 

          Well sissy, ‘member that physical therapist that was s’posed to come assess mommy last week fur the wheelchair? Turns out, he never planned to come here at all. He furinally called mommy really late and told her she had to come to him at the hospital. So, we’re headin’ there today. Fanky fankfully, he’s at the rehab hospital here next door to our ‘pawrtment complex. But still, it put the wheelchair on hold fur yet another week. As ifin there isn’t already enuff red tape and hoops to jump thru.

 

 Dezi and Raena meet in the hall way

 

 

Yeah Raena, and me ‘members how upset mommy was after waitin’ all day on him to show up. But, ya’ll aren’t goin’ fur a while yet, so come eat. You know how mommy gets when she has to tell us to eat a hunnerd times each meal.

 

 Raena lays on the back of the chair

 

 

          Yeah, she was cryin’ ‘bout that last night. Ya’ know, mommy feeds us really well. But, ‘pawrently it costs lots of green papers to buy. Mommy had thought ‘bout havin’ our auto ship go ahead and ship early, but she just couldn’t come up with enuff of those green papers. When she furinally got paid she hit the send now button on our noms. Unfurtunately, they’re comin’ from up North and won’t be here fur over a week. When she furinally realized that last night she called up Chewy to find out why they didn’t ship from the warehouse down the street. They didn’t have an answer other than the warehouse must not have had our noms in stock. Thinkin’ ‘bout us runnin’ outta noms, mommy started blubberin’ like a baby right there on the fone with the Chewy man. 

 

Dezi looks down from atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

We’re gonna run outta food Raena? Is that what you’re meowin’? You fur sure better come eat. Ifin you don’t, me just might have to eat yours too. Me can’t be missin’ any meals now. We’ve read ‘bout how our furiends just starve when their pawrents put ‘em on a diet. At least they’re still gettin’ somethin’. We’ll waste away to nuffin’ without noms. 

 

          Don’t worry sissy. Surely mommy will figger somethin’ out?. Maybe she can order some from amazon that’ll get here in a couple of days? 

 

 Dezi lays on chair

 

 

With what Raena? Her good looks? In case you hadn’t noticed, mommy ain’t no spring chick anymore. And me ain’t meowin’ ‘bout the kind with feathers. She’s got a few more wrinkles and rolls than she used to have. And besides, even ifin she still had all the curves in all the right places, ain’t nopawdy in the catputer fur her to flirt with.

 

          That’s not very nice sissy. I’s gonna tell mommy you called her old, fat and wrinkly.

 

Do you think she doesn’t already know that Raena? 

 

          She might, but, she thinks we think she’s purrfect and gawjus. 

 

 Dezi snuggles in mommys lap

 

 

We do tattle tail, but none of us are blind. And me was just meowin’ the facts. Now, why don’t you put some food in your mouth and keep it shut. (Mommy comes into the room with a fresh cup of coffee and Dezi saunters over and rubs against her and jumps in her lap purring loud enough to shake the picture frames on the wall)  Me luvs you mommy. 

 

 

 Raena lays in mommy's lap

 

 

          (Raena jumps on the chair and tries to push Dezi over so she can also sit in mommy A’s lap. Dezi hisses and jumps down. Seeing Raena’s open breakfast plate, she moves in and starts eating. Raena nuzzles mommy and starts to purr loudly)  I’s luvs you mommy. Are we gonna visit patients when we’re at the rehab hospital today? (Raena cleans her paw and notices Dezi eating  all the rabbit from her plate) I’s better go eat befur sissy scarfs down all mine’s noms. Hey sissy, don’t eat all the rabbit. That’s mine’s favorite pawrt. 

 

Hmmmpht  You steal mommy’s lap and me will steal your rabbit… Wanna play befur you and mommy go out?

 

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

Blest Sunday: Southern Hospitality Only Goes So Far

MeOW Raena, it’s time fur Blest Sunday.

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

 

          Sure ‘nuff sissy. And have we ever been Blessed. As most of ya’ know, we recently had visitors. Today, we’re gonna wrap up that visit. Ifin ya’ missed pawrt 1, you can read it here. Now, let’s get on with our visit.

 

 Raena looks up at Gizmo sitting in Mary's lap

Hey Gizmo, mine’s name is RaenaBelle.

 

 

We’ve had several peeps remawrk ‘bout how well we did havin’ Gizmo the kitty visit with us Raena. We should admit that there was a couple of hisses and one growl. We’re not meowin’ who did the hissin’ or the growlin’, since there was no fightin’ or whacky paws involved. Mommy says it was mostly pawsturin’ and lettin’ each other know when one was a bit too close fur comfurt. Ya’ know, it may be our nature to sniff backsides, but that doesn’t mean the sniffee actually enjoys it. Fur the most pawrt, we had a great and uneventful visit, kitties and humans too. Our Southern hospitality shined.

 

 Mommy A holds Raena

I’s luvs mine’s mommy.

 

 

          Yeah sissy, awnty Mary Beth took lots of fotos of me and you with mommy. You know how happy that made mommy. She always says she doesn’t have many fotos of her with us. I’s could’a done with a good brushin’ tho’, cuz mine’s neck ruff was a bit wild. But, I’s really don’t care. I’s just luvs it when mommy holds me, ruffled furs or not. 

 

Mommy A holds Dezi

Fotos with mommy. Me’s all in.

 

Yep Raena, and you just luv the camera. MOL 

 

Raena checks out the pizza boxIs that pizza? Hmmmm Now where’s mine’s plate?

          Well sissy, you missed what happened next cuz of those noisy thunder boomers. Uncle Garth left fur a few minutes and when he returned, he brought in a pizza. Oh Kittens  Did it ever smell delishus. But then, the worst thing that could’a happened, happened. Mommy didn’t even fix me a plate. Nope, not even a snack plate. ‘Stead, mommy, awnty Mary Beth and uncle Garth sat there eatin’ OUR PIZZA!!!  Can you believe it? I’s sure couldn’t. Don’t they know that pizzas are kitty food? Not to mention, pizza is our favorite food. I’s tried to help mine’s self to a slice, but I’s couldn’t balance on the wheelchair arm and open the box at the same time. So, I’s gave ‘em the ole kitty evil eye.

 

 Raena sniffs the pizza

Yep, that’s pizza. Yummmmmmm The smell’s divine.

 

 

Well Raena, did it work? 

 

 Raena sniffs the pizza

I’s’ll just help mine’s self.

 

 

Raena looks over the pizza box

Hey! Just who do ya’ll think you are? Don’t you know any pizza

that comes in this house belongs to us cats?

 

 

 

          Not very well. Least, they did leave us a piece each. Like that was gonna fill us up. Hmmmpht Even worse, mommy didn’t save us any of the pepperoni’s off the pieces she ate. I’s mean, she ate every last bite, just like we weren’t even there. The nerve. I’s tellin’ ya’, I’s just couldn’t believe mine’s own blue eyes. All mine’s Southern Belle hospitality flew right out the window when that happened. You know, Southern Hospitality can only go so far. And then, they wanted to take luvvy dovey fotos with me. Hmmmpht  Like that was gonna happen. MOL

 

 Mary Beth holds Raena while Raena looks at her

Alright awnty Mary Beth, one kiss…just one I’s said.

 

Oh Raena, mommy takes really good care of us. Just cuz we didn’t get 1 pizza shouldn’t make you act ugly. We did get a piece later. And besides, we luv awnty Mary Beth, uncle Garth and Gizmo. Me was very purroud of you fur sharin’ the cat tree with him. And lettin’ awnty Mary Beth and uncle Garth hold you. Me was also purroud of ya’, that you didn’t get all jealous when mommy gave Gizzy some luvvin’. 

 

 Raena lays in Garth's lap

Hmmmmmm I’s thinkin’ men, a daddy to be purrcise,

might not be so bad after all. Mommmmmmmy…?

 

 

          Of course I’s didn’t get jealous sissy. After all, he never took off his jacket (harness), so I’s knew he wasn’t actually stayin’. And, I’s know mommy has purrlenty of luvvin’ to go ‘round. Cousin Gizzy seemed to like the scent me up game too. Mommy said his motor boat started right up. I’s surpurrised he didn’t float right off her lap.

 

Mommy A plays scent me up with Gizmo

Purrrrrrrrrrrr Love ya’ autny A

 

 

Hmmmpht You know better Raena. Mommy’s hold may look gentle, but she’s got a furm grasp on any kitty she holds. They ain’t goin’ anywhere lessen she wants ‘em too. MOL  Me sure hated that they had to leave so soon. Cuz of those thunder boomers, me missed sayin’ goodbye. So me looked fur them all day the next day.

 

 Mommy A holds Gizmo

 

 

          Me too sissy. Our visit was way too short. I’s sure hope they can come back.

 

Yep Raena. Ya’ know, we never ‘magined meetin’ any of our online furiends when we started all this. But, we have been so blessed that we’ve actually met quite a few of them. We’re always up fur a visit from our amazin’ furiends and wish we could meet you all. We’re sure hopin’ we can manage to go to BlogPaws this next year. It’s really close to us, so we’d hate to miss it. You’d have a great time Raena. Sis Lexi and me really had a blast the year we went. 

 

 Mary Beth holds Raena

I’s luvs ya’ awnty Mary Beth, even ifin ya’ didn’t share your pizza with me.

 

 

          And we could meet more furiends? (Dezi nods to Raena) I’s would luvs that sissy. In the meantime, anypawdy who wants to come and see us…Come on down, Southern hospitality at Deziz World reigns.

 

 Garth, Mary Beth and mommy A

Uncle Garth, Awnty Mary Beth and mommy A

 

 

Sure ‘nuff Raena, even ifin we don’t get a pizza. MOL  We wanna fank uncle Garth, awnty Mary Beth and Gizmo fur comin’ to see us and fur everythin’. They’ve been really good to us. Ya’ know, they sent us our kitty beds, toys and green papers and all kinds of goodies thru the years. Mostly, they’ve luvved us and our mommy. We are so blest to have so many pawsum furiends. And yep, YOU, yes you readin’ this posty are one of them. Fank you so much fur bein’ a pawrt of our lives. We luv you very much. We think ‘bout and purray fur all our furiends every day, you included. Like we always do, we’d like to remind you to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your life. Maybe, we’re one of ‘em.

 

 Gizmo lays in house on liberty cat tree

Gizmo’s selfie

 

 

          I’s couldn’t have meowed it better mine’s self sissy. We’d also like to say, we think (paws crossed) the car’s fixed. Mommy ordered the pawrt and the neighbor boy put it on fur us this past week. Mommy’s still gotta make a few more short test drives just to be on the safe side, but we’re purretty sure, the car is good to go. We’ll keep ya’ posted. Mommy was shocked at the cost of oil and anti-freeze. So, mine’s VET ‘pointment is on hold fur a bit. Fanky fank you all fur your purrayers and good wishes. They do help. Ifin you could spare a purrayer fur our awnty Ellen and her Phoebe cat from 15 and Meowing, we’d purreciate it. We’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. We’re gonna go play now.

 

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