RaenaBelle, hurry up. It’s time fur our Blest Sunday posty. Mommy says the weather guessers have said it’s gonna storm; so we’ve gotta get our posty written befur the heavens start rumblin’.
I’s comin’ sissy. What’s with the stormin’ meows? I’s don’t want anymore storms. I’s thought spring was s’posed to be here?.
Yeah, well, spring or not, you know it storms here a lot.
That I’s do, sissy. That’s kind’a why I’s don’t get why you wanna run hide when you hear the furst rumble in the sky? You’d think you’d be used to it by now. After all, it’s not like you were born yesfurday.
Uh? Me thinks you’re callin’ me old Raena. And ifin you are, that’s not very nice. Besides, how many times does me have to tell ya’, me’s not hidin’. Me’s makin’ sure you and mommy are safe from any critters that might try to get in the house and hide unner the bed. Anyways, me was really happy to see mr. Sunshine come out this week. It warmed up enuff fur mommy to take us fur a few strolls.
What fun we had, right sissy? I’s luvs to go strollin’ with mommy. I’s even met a couple of the neighbor ladies. They wanted to make over me and pet me and talk ‘bout how soft mine’s fur is. I’s wasn’t real fond of all those hands comin’ at me all at once, but I’s sucked it up and let ‘em manhandle me. I’s sure mine’s beauty made their day.
Hmmmmpht Conceded much Raena?
I’s don’t even know what that means, sissy. Anyways, I’s heard all kinds of noises and even saw a herd of deer out in our woods. Did you see ‘em when you went out?
Look’it mommy, it’s the bobcat!!!
Nope Raena, me didn’t see any deer, but me did see that old bobcat we used to feed. Least me thinks it was her. She was watchin’ mommy and me from the woods. She had a purretty good hidin’ spot, we almost missed her. Unfurtunately, mommy scared her when she went fumblin’ fur the camera. Then when she tried to take a foto of that old bobcat runnin’ away, the camera slipped and all mommy got was a foto of the sun settin’. It’s actually a really nice foto, just not what mommy was tryin’ fur.
Yeah sissy, mommy’s not the greatest fotographer in the world. Least she tries. I’s guess that’s what counts. And, mommy said it was good to see the bobcat. Maybe we’ll see more of her this year. I’s not got to meet her yet.
And ifin mommy has anythin’ to say ‘bout it Raena, you won’t ever get to meet her. Mommy says she’s not like us. Even tho’ she looks furiendly, she’s a wild cat and not meant to play with us.
Really sissy? You call me wild all the time, what’s the difference?
Your wild is kitten energy Raena. Her wild means she’s not used to hangin’ with peeps and she actually kills most everythin’ she eats. X’cept those times when everypawdy ‘round here puts out food fur her. She’s kind’a like our lion and tiger cousins you watch on the teevee; pretty to look at, but not suited fur home livin’. We’re so Blest to be homey kitties and have such a pawsum home with mommy.
We are at that. It’s just too bad sissy, I’s sure wanted to meet her.
Well, maybe you’ll see her one day while you’re out strollin’ with mommy. You can wave to her, just ‘member to keep your distance. In other words, stay in the stroller where you’re safe.
I’s do feel safe in our new stroller sissy. I’s luvs the tethers. They’re strong enuff to make sure we can’t escape or get hurt, but still long enuff to let us move all ‘round and take in the view. I’s just wish the wind hadn’t been blowin’ so hard when I’s was out.
Me too, Raena. All that wind was blowin’ our winter furs all over the place. Still, it was really nice to get out and take in some furesh air. The neighbor even came out to see me. Mommy wouldn’t let me get out and walk ‘round tho’. She said the exterminator had just sprayed the yard and she didn’t want me gettin’ poison on me’s paws. It’s the furst time he’s sprayed the outside in five years. We hope that helps cut down on all the scary bugs that try to get in the house like the scorpions, spiders and fire ants.
Fleas and ticks too sissy. We fur sure don’t want any of those.
Sure ‘nuff Raena. Altho’ me’s purretty sure mommy will take care of that fur us. Anyways, we are so Blest that we got to go out fur those amazin’ strolls this past week. Me can’t wait fur more.
Me either sissy, me either. Meowin of Blessings, we wanna fanky fank uncle Pete, Timmy and the furmily fur the green papers fur somethin’ special. Mommy didn’t say what she was gonna get us yet, but she purromissed to get us somethin’ we’d really like. And fanky fanks to awnty Lene fur the green papers fur me to get a bacon burger the next time we go to Ardmore. That stinkin’ dentist office has upset mommy so much at her last few visits that we didn’t even get to stop fur a special treat. Now mommy has no x’cuse, awnty Lene said so.
You better get enuff to bring home some fur me too Raena.
I’s will sissy, don’t worry.
Me also wants to fank all of you fur bein’ our furiends. We fank God fur all of you each and every day. We wanna remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. We’d also like to fank our sweet furiend Ali fur nominatin’ us fur the Mystery Blogger Award. Ali be a fellow Cat Scout and gawjus tabby. She doesn’t blog a lot, but you can check her out here. We think we’re s’posed to tell 3 things ‘bout us. So, nummer 1 is that we are Blest. Nummer 2, we luv all our furiends.

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. MeOW What a day.
What are you meowin’ on ‘bout over there Raena?
All the commotion here yesfurday, sissy. Was that not a headache or what? There was men all over the place with big bags and tools and all kinds of things. You’d have thought it was spring time or somethin’.
Yeah, well it’s not. Your short stroll with mommy to the mail box should’a told ya’ that.
Yeah, it sure was cold sissy. Even tho’ the sun was beamin’ in the sky, it was chilly and really windy. None the less, I’s sure did enjoy mine’s stroll with mommy. Even ifin she was tryin’ to hurry and get us back inside.
Yep Raena, me thinks everypawdy fur miles ‘round heard how much you enjoyed the stroll. Poor mommy was tryin’ to use the…well, she was in the pawtty box room and there you were runnin’ back and furth to the stroller and meowin’ at the top of your lungs.
I’s couldn’t help it sissy. It was so much fun that I’s wanted to go back out again. Mommy could’a put on her coat and mine’s harness and taken me back out. Ya’ know, we usually wear our harnesses to go out. But, since we were only goin’ to the mailbox and mommy knows we’re comfutable in the stroller, she let me go out without it just this once. ‘Course, she also kept me all zipped up, so I’s couldn’t escape. It’s just been so long since we went fur a stroll, that I’s furgot how much fun it was. So many noises. I’s kept hearin’ some birdy, but I’s couldn’t figger out where it was comin’ from. And I’s saw some big o’l deer out in the woods. What fun I’s had.
Well Raena, you’ll get purrlenty of time fur fun today when you and mommy go back to the dentist fur another one of those teethy fittings. Hopefully this will be the last one. At least fur the upper ones. She’s still gotta have those last two teethies removed and then this whole thing will start all over with more wax fittings fur the bottom teethies.
Yeah sissy, fanky fankfully we’ve almost got all the green papers mommy needs to get this finished. And then she’ll be lodgin’ some massive complaints. She’s seen how bad their work can be, so she’s a little ‘fraid to make any of those complaints right now. I’s need to finish mine’s brekky so I’s can get ready to go with mommy. Are you comin’ sissy?
Yep Raena, me’s right behind ya’. Hopefully, we’ll get ‘round to visit with our furiends tomorrow.
Till the next time………………………………………Be Blest!!!

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We’ve got a cool new ride!!!
Raena, what are you doin’? You know we try to save our blessings fur our Blest Sunday postys.
I’s too x’cited, sissy. You can save what you wanna meow ‘bout it till Sunday ifin ya’ want. But, I’s meowin’ ‘bout it today. I’s been ridin’ in that cramped old carrier fur too long. We’ve had a few sunny days that were great fur strollin’, but here we sat hangin’ in the house ‘stead of out enjoyin’ the furesh air and huntin’ fur bunnies.
And whose fault is that?
It’s not all mine’s fault sissy. Besides, it’s not like it was in purristine condition when I’s was born. Mommy said you and your sis Lexi had already broken the board that went across the bottom cuz ya’ll were too heavy fur it. And like ya’ll, I’s never would’a broke the stroller on purrpuss; I’s luvs goin’ fur strolls with mommy too much.
Well at least we could still use it when sis Lexi and me snapped the bottom board. When you broke it, there was no more strollin’ fur any kitty. Me sure did miss it. When me was little and used to go with mommy, me always had to ride in that cramped carrier. You got lucky and came here long after we were already enjoyin’ the fureedom the stroller gives us. So the way me sees it, is that you were just payin’ your dues like all the Service kitties befur you. Anyways, me’s glad we got a new ride too. And this one shouldn’t break. Me heard mommy say it could hold up to 75 pounds. That means both of us can ride at the same time.
Uh, Mommy?! It’s really big, but I’s can still jump in on mine’s own.
And we could even gain a few pounds. MOL That Gen7 Pets makes a mighty fine stroller. It’s so comfy. And did you see that our tires are bigger than the ones on mommy’s wheelchair? I’s bet there ain’t nowhere we can’t go now. Ya’ know, Oklahoma has a lot of really bad roads and sidewalks. And we’ve got lots of dirt and holes too. That kind’a terrain can be hard on wheels and tires. Mommy says the wheels on our new stroller were meant fur that stuff. It is called a jogger after all.
Yeah Raena, and me can’t wait to go fur our furst stroll. We were s’posed to go yesfurday, but it took mommy a little longer to put it together than she x’spected; and we got a late surpurrise notice ‘bout a inspection fur today. That meant mommy had to try to do a little cleanin’ last night. Needless to say, she didn’t get much done, we should’a went fur that stroll instead.
That sure is a long way down.
I’s agree, sissy. Ya’ know, a lot of our furiends are gettin’ strollers of their own. Wouldn’t it be cool ifin we could all for fur a stroll together? We get asked a lot ‘bout whether or not we would recommend peeps gettin’ their kitties a stroller. And we totally think they’re a great way fur kitty to spend some time in the great outdoors while still bein’ safe. And, takin’ kitty fur a stroll even lets our peeps get a little exercise. We do recommend doin’ your homework befur buyin’ one tho’. Ya’ wanna make sure it’ll hold kitty and be sturdy enuff fur kitty to feel safe. We much purrfur the 3 wheeled strollers to those rickety 4 wheelers. Not only do they look sleeker, they maneuver better. As fur whether or not to get one with a zipper closure or velcro, we can only meow ‘bout what we know. We’ve only had zipper ones, and we really do recommend the Gen7 strollers. Our old stroller had gaps t’ween where the zipper ended and met the suppurrt bars. And anypawdy who knows kitties knows, ifin kitty can fit their head thru a space, they’ll squeeze their whole body thru somehow.
That’s so true Raena. More than once we’ve poked our head and front paws out the gaps on that stroller. Me has a feelin’ that’s not gonna be pawssible anymore. Me didn’t see any gaps in our new stroller. But just in case, it’s always good to tether kitty into the stroller with the purrvided D rings. Even the calmest of kitties can get spooked. Strollin’ should be fun. We also recommend keepin’ the stroller closed, least till kitty gets comfy enuff not to try to jump out. As fur the assembly required, ifin mommy can do it, anypawdy can. Usually it’s just a matter of attachin’ the wheels. You’ve just got to make sure everythin’ gets locked into place. ya’ don’t want a wheel fallin’ off on your furst stroll. And altho’ we luv that our stroller matches our eyes, color choice shouldn’t dictate the stroller you choose. Quality strollers usually only come in a few purrimary colors, like red, blue and black. That means there’s no purrple strollers fur us. You can get creative and trick yours out any way ya’ want.
Are we gonna do that with ours sissy? I’s not sure what that means ‘zactly, but I’s like the sound of it.
Mommy says we can Raena. Just ‘member, it’s gotta be tasteful. We are Southern Belles after all.
Tasteful huh? Are we gonna put treats all over it?
(Dezi shakes her head.) We’ll meow ‘bout it later Raena. Let’s just say a meowsy big Fank you to awnty Cindy and angel Maggie Meme fur our new ride and get ready to go fur a stroll.
I’s with ya’ sissy. Can we meow ‘bout what to call it too?
This is not a sponsored post. We received our new Gen7 Jogger from an amazing awnty and just thought we’d tell ya’ more ‘bout how to pick the right stroller fur your pets.
Till the next time……………………………………….Be Blest!!!
