Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. (Raena looks around. Seeing something flutter by the door she runs to the small perch to look out while meowing) Well sissy, we’ve furinally joined this century and got our very own smarty pants fone. Mommy said since it was gonna cost the same as what she pays fur a dumb fone we might as well get a smart one.
Was there any ketches Raena? You know humans luv to trick ya’ with things that sound too good to be true.
You’re right ‘bout that sissy. Seems there was one ketch, she had to pay some kind’a activation fee. The fone was furee and the service is the same as always, but they did want money to turn the thing on. Now ifin mommy can only learn to use it.
(Something flutters by the front door catching Dezi and Raena’s attention) What was that? Did you see that Raena? Mommy, there’s somethin’ on that silly alarm outside. (Dezi and Raena chatter wildly until mommy A gets up and looks outside. Seeing a bird’s nest on the alarm box on the wall outside the front door, mommy tells the girls that they were seeing the mommy bird taking care of her babies.) Really mommy? Do ya’ reckon it’s the same birdy from last year?
I don’t know sweety, maybe.
I’s wanna see the baby birds mommy. Will you hold me up there so I’s can see ‘em?
No Raena, I don’t think the momma bird would be too happy about that. You don’t want to scare her off so she leaves her babies alone, do you?
No, I’s guess not mommy. Ya’ know, our furiends might be wonderin’ just what kind of alarm box we’ve got out there. Since these ‘pawrtments are fur the disabled and elderly, they put a red light and a really noisy alarm on the wall right by the door. It’s s’posed to be fur emergencies. There’s a string in the bathroom and one in the bedroom that cause the alarm to go off when they’re pulled. The alarm isn’t actually connected to any kind’a emergency help, so all it does is go off, give everypawdy a migraine and start the busy bodies to gossipin’.
Yep Raena, one of the furst Service Cat lessons we learn is not to play with the strings. Mommy says she doesn’t want all the nosy neighbors comin’ in our house. It’s not like any of them could actually help mommy. Befur you were born peeps alarms used to go off all the time. They’d be cleanin’ their pawrtments and pull the chain by accident. Mommy says that’s why they’re not attached to any emergency system. Ifin they were, the pawlice, fire depawrtment and ambulance would be here all the time fur false alarms.
Really sissy? I’s can only ‘member hearin’ one of those alarms since I’s been here. It fur sure was loud and annoyin’. I’s bet it would really scare that poor birdy up there.
You’re purrobably right Raena. Let’s not find out, okay? Who knows, there might be lots more birdies with nests full of babies that we haven’t seen. We used to have a neighbor who put bird houses all over her patio. Once she moved, those birdies had nowhere to go anymore. Me bets they chose our purrch fur their nests cuz they knew we’re nice and won’t try to hurt ‘em or shoo ‘em off. Me can’t wait till the baby birdies start learnin’ to fly. Me ‘members those birdies from last year made quite a raucous when they left the nest.
You’re right ‘bout that, sissy. Fur such tiny creatures, they sure can make a lot of noise.
And they’re messy too Raena. They don’t seem to care where they poop. Ya’ gotta be careful or they just might poop on you. Dirty little critters. It’s no wonder the Trout Towne Tabbies don’t like birdies.
MOL That’s a good one sissy. All I’s can meow is that no birdy better poop on me. Ifin they try, we’ll be havin’ ‘em fur dinner.
Hmmmpht Now that’s a good one Raena. Like you could actually ketch a birdy. MOL Me ‘members what you did the furst time you saw a rabbit. Our natural prey and you wanted to play with it.
Oh sissy, he was so cute. Unfurtunately, he wasn’t the least bit innerested in playin’ with me. I’s never could figure out why? Anyways, we better wrap it up; we’ve got one of those inspections tomorrow, so mommy’s gotta do some cleanin’. Let’s go finish brekky and see how we can help.
Till the next time………………………………………..Be Blest!!!

MeOW Raena, did you see the clock? We’re runnin’ late fur our Blest Sunday posty.
I’s think the clock is wrong sissy. Brekky was on time, so the clock must be wrong. Maybe the power went out durin’ that big o’l wind storm we had last night.
That doesn’t even make sense Raena. Ifin the power had gone out, the clocks would be way late. Besides, even ifin the power goes out, the catputer always tells the right time. Haven’t you heard? Catputers don’t lie.
Yeah sissy, I’s heard that. Haven’t you heard that catputers are only as smart as the purrson inputin’ data? That means, catputers can lie. They can be just as wrong as anythin’ else.
Whatever Raena. Mommy says the catputer is tellin’ the right time. She says humans did that thing with the clocks again last night and we lost an hour.
We lost an hour? Where’d it go? Ifin we lost an hour, why was brekky on time?
Me has no clue where it went Raena, and neither do any of the humans behind this clock changin’ thing. Contrary to their beliefs, we don’t actually get that hour back in the fall when they insist on changin’ the clocks again. Fankfully, mommy unnerstands the circadian rhythm that we anipals gauge time by. Since we can’t actually tell the time, we depend on our own bodies to tell us when it’s time to eat, sleep and everythin’ else.
Like bath time, sissy?
Sure Raena, bath time too. Anyways, while lots of anipals who live with humans are all confused this meownin’ cuz their peeps fed them at the wrong time, that didn’t happen here. Mommy uses tummy time fur our schedule. Me did a little research last night and learned that peeps should help their anipals adjust to the clock changes by only alterin’ their schedule by a few minutes a day over the period of a couple of weeks, ‘stead of expectin’ us to change everythin’ just cuz of some hands on a clock. Ifin they don’t, they might find themselves with really upset and confused anipals who act out a little or even get sick. Me even learned that heart attacks in humans increase the furst week after pushin’ the clocks furward every year. Seems nopawdy was meant to mess with time.
That’s innerestin’ sissy. But all I’s really care ‘bout is that our dinner’s still gonna be on time.
Well Raena, the bestest me can meow is that it’ll be as on time as usual. Since mommy uses tummy time, she won’t be watchin’ a clock any more than usual.
Well, fanky fank mine’s tummy. Hey, sissy? I’s think we also have a few blessings we need to give fanky fanks fur this week. As most everypawdy knows, the dentist office is insistin’ on more money to finish mommy’s teethies; money we don’t have. So we were pawfully fanky fankful when some angels stepped up this past week to help out. It irks mommy to pay their extortion, but ifin she doesn’t she won’t get the teethies/dentures she needs. Altho’, she does have complaints ready to file the minute this is all over. She’s a little scared to file while the work is in progress cuz they could really mess things up fur her.
Yeah Raena, a rock and a hard place really isn’t a fun place to be. So fank you so very much awnty Susan, and our Anonymous awnties and uncles that have sent green papers. We’re gettin’ really close to the total amount needed. And, fankfully, your eyes have been doin’ okay, but you still need to go to the V E T. Mommy says she’s workin’ on that one too. Ifin anypawdy would like to help with either mommy’s teethies or your V E T ‘pointment, they can always donate to our paypal at email@example.com. Mommy uses any money that comes in fur our care unless the giver specifies somethin’ else.
We are so Blest sissy. And hey, did you see the pussy willows mommy put in water? They’re not just growin’ roots, those things have new growth comin’ out the top of the stems. Mommy’s so x’cited. We’re gonna have our very own pussy willow tree/bush. Mommy plans on tryin’ to keep it cut back and small more like an 8 – 10 ft. bush. Awnty Ellen has offurred to help mommy figger it all out. Their trees were transplants too, so they’ve already done it. I’s can’t wait to see what happens.
Me neither Raena. They sure are cute. Anyways, we better wrap this up finish our brekky. Ya’ know somepawdy said they couldn’t believe we only ate a little of our noms and went back later to finish ‘em off. The most ‘purrtant reason we take a break is to check on mommy and see ifin we’re missin’ anythin’ outside and to go to the pawtty box room. The second reason is that ifin we scarf it down, we throw it right back up, and mommy hates that almost as much as we do. Anyways, let’s go eat and get some cuddles. We’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the blessings in your life.
And fanky fank you all fur bein’ our furiends. We’re also linkin’ up with the Kittes Blue fur Sunday Selfies. Stay outta mine’s plate sissy, I’s right behind ya’.
Till the next time……………………………………Be Blest!!!

The Day Before Christmas
It was the day before Christmas,
in our little house.
Sweet Dezi lay nappin’,
while Raena played with last year’s nip mouse.
Their stockings were hung
on the hutch way up high,
so they couldn’t reach them,
not even with their best try.
Clothes in the washer
a full dryer too.
Like any other day,
there’s lots of work left to do.
Turkey tom lurkey’s
thawin’ in the fridge
thanks to LouLou,
our friend who speaks French.
We’re singin’ Christmas carols
‘round the fake fire,
wonderin’ if sweet Raena
will ever get tired.
The forecast is great
for those of us who don’t like snow.
The sun will be shining
even tho’ it’ll be cold.
I sip one last cup of coffee
as night draws near,
looking at photos
reminiscing over the past year.
I carry the girls
to bed to tuck in.
We say our prayers
and include all our friends.
the happiest time of the year.
There’s just a few more hours left
of holiday cheer.
I look at my girls
sleeping next to me,
How blest I am
How blest are we.
I silently pray
peace and goodwill to all.
And whisper Merry Christmas,
Merry Christmas to ya’ll.
