MeOW-llo everypawdy, it’s furinally Furiday. Well, we hate to do it, but mommy says there’s just too much goin’ on to really focus and do justice to our educational posts right now. So, we’re gonna be givin’ Service Cat Furidays a little hiatus. Don’t worry, it will be back and we’ll pick up where we left off and complete our mini-series on Feline Nutrition and Whole Prey Model Raw feeding soon. You know, mommy has a hard time focusing in the furst place, but you add in little sleep, tempurrary housing and extra health issues, and it’s a wonder mommy ‘members to think at all.
C’mon RaenaBelle. Hurry up mommy, we need you to type fur us. It’s Blest Sunday, and everypawdy purrobably thinks we fell off the face of the earth. We’ve been MIA since last Wednesday. Kittens!!! (Dezi tries to corral Raena and push mommy to the computer)
Dezi: MeOW C’mon Raena, today’s a very special Blest Sunday.
Raena: Really sissy? What’s so special ‘bout today?
Dezi: It’s Veteran’s Day, Raena. A day we take to ‘member the soldiers who fought, and many gave their lives so we could be free from tyranny. So many brave men, women and anipals gave their lives on distant shores, so that loved ones and even strangers like us could live our lives free from fear of wars in our own home. Me thinks we furget how things could be. We’ve been free fur so long that me thinks we sometimes take our Country’s greatness and freedoms fur granted.
Raena: I’s think you’re right sissy. It’s not purretty to think ‘bout young men, women and anipals lying in a trench on some foreign soil bleeding and dying. To think ‘bout them bein’ lonely and scared, and away from their families and loved ones; not knowin’ ifin they’ll ever see them again. To think ‘bout them swearin’ an oath to purrtect us…to die fur complete strangers. Soldiers who never gave a second thought to goin’ to bad places and facin’ bad people. Standing their ground and sayin’ “As long as I’m here, no one is going to hurt you”.
Dezi: So true Raena. There’s so much hate and discord in our Country right now. So many peeps sayin’ and doin’ things that would get them thrown into prison or killed in lesser Countries. Peeps tryin’ to take away the very freedoms that those soldiers bled and died for. The truth is, it’s a slap in the face, it’s like spittin’ on the graves of all those who bravely fought and lost their lives to secure those freedoms and make our Country great. It makes us so sad to hear ‘bout our vets bein’ treated badly.
Raena: I’s think all those soldiers who died to make America great are turnin’ over in their graves at some of the nonsense goin’ on right now, sissy. In our house, we bleed red white and blue. We honor our flag and each and every soldier who willingly defends/defended our Country and us from our enemies. We are so Blest to have been born in such an amazing Country. We are Blest to have a mommy who has taught us the price that was paid to make our Nation great.
Dezi: Yes Raena, we are indeed Blest. We fank and salute each and every veteran and their families today and every day. We fank each and every soldier who serves us now. You may not know us, and we may not know your name, but we ask God to Bless and keep you each day. While you’re watchin’ over us, God is watchin’ over you. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you all to Give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. and we wanna fank you all fur bein’ Blessings in ours.
Raena: And, as we do each week, we’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. Purrlease ‘member to fanky fank our vets fur their service. Because of them and their sacrifice, you can sleep safely in your bed at night.
Till the next time…………………………………………………Be Blest!!!
Dezi: Vibrant Blue
Raena: Navy Blue
