(Mommy fumbles around in the kitchen making Dezi and Raena’s breakfast and mumbles something about the time)
Hey, sissy? What’s mommy mumblin’ ‘bout? Is it already brekky time? I’s not sure I’s really hungry yet. I’s know I’s not ready to hunt. ketch and kill anythin’.
Don’t let mommy hear you meowin’ that, we’ll never get brekky furst thing in the meownin’ again. Seems humans think they know better than God and change their clocks a couple times a year.
What does that mean, they change the clocks? What does a clock have to do with anythin’?
Oh Raena, the clock has Eeeverythin’ to do with everythin’ humans do. Even our mommy. The clock tells them when to get up, when to go to sleep, when to work, when to eat…
When to eat?!!! Why don’t they just go on tummy time? It works fur us.?
Ya’ think? You wanna know a secret?
A secret? Of course I’s wanna know a secret. What is it?
Calm down, mommy’ll think you’re tryin’ to rush her. The secret is, we think we run on our tummy time. But the truth is, mommy programmed our tummy clocks to the humans clocks so that our tummy time alarm goes off at the time mommy wants it too. Mommy’s a sneaky one, ya know.
What? What are you meowin’ ‘bout sissy? Our tummies have clocks? Did mommy furget to change them last night? Cuz really, I’s not think I’s hungry yet.
Trust me, by the time mommy gets our brekky ready, you will be. The hands on the clock may have moved fast an hour, but mommy’s movin’ in slow motion. Happens fur ‘bout a week every time the time changes. ‘Specially since it’s turned cold again.
(Dezi and Raena look over at mommy who looks a bit confused at where she was in preparing their breakfast)
Don’t worry, she’ll figger it out. Did you see the cool colorin’ book mommy got yesfurday?
Mommy didn’t realize the painting was flipped over till she
loaded these fotos this meownin’. 😦
I’s sure did. We won that fur mommy from awnty Marjorie and the Dash Kitten Crew. It travelled across the whole world to get here. And ya’ know what? I’s could still smell the kitties. It was really nice meetin’ some of our furiends. Ya’ know gettin’ to smell ‘em like that, I’s feel like I’s know them in the fur.
Fanky fank ya’. Mommy’s gonna have fun.
Yep, I’s exchanged a few scents too. Fank ya’ll, mommy’s gonna have lots of colorin’ fun. And she put the little paintin’ on her desk so she could look at it every day.
Hey Dezi, don’t furget to tell everypawdy ‘bout the fundraiser fur mommy. She got a big surprise this week.
Yep Raena, she sure did. An Angel sent us $800.00 to our paypal this week. Ya’ know what that means? We’re ‘bout half way to our goal. Fank you soooooooooooooo much. Of course mommy cried, cuz she was so grateful. You know, mommy hates that she needs help. Askin’ others to help us, is purrobably her least favorite thing. She’s always said she’d do whatever she had to in order fur us to get what we need, but when it comes to herself, she’d rather go without. But what’s goin’ on with her teethies is really bad and we’re desperate. That’s why we started the fundraiser fur her. We need our mommy to be here and as healthy as she can be to take care of us. Even ifin she moves in slow motion. She’s our slow motion mommy and we luv her. Ifin you’d like to donate, you can do so directly to our Paypal at: lexi(dot)dezi(at)yahoo(dot)com (fur your copy and paste convenience: email@example.com), or at the fundraiser here.
We also wanna say fank you to awnty Petal. She and mommy met thru sis Lexi on facebook, and they be like sisfurs. Awnty Petal be family and we luv her. Ya’ know when mommy got really really sick back when our ‘pawrtment flooded, awnty Petal called the pawlice to come check on mommy. That might not seem like a big deal till ya’ know, awnty Petal lives across the big pond. We are so blest to have so many wonderful and caring furiends.
We sure are sissy. And don’t furget, awnty Vonda sent money so mommy could buy you a new harness and leash just like mines. We’ll be stylin’ together.
Sure nuff. Fank you awnty Vonda, me can’t wait. Altho’ mommy did say me had to wait till she felt a little better so she could focus and order the right thing. Seems she can’t make out the numbers on the measurin’ tape right now. MOL Anyways, we are so fankful fur all of you; and we feel so blest to have you in our lives. Don’t furget to take a minute today and every day to give fanks fur the blessings in your lives.
Looks like mommy’s furinally got our brekky ready, sissy. Let’s link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and go eat. I’s sure nuff hungry now.

Well Raena, as always, everypawdy thought you were the cat’s meow in the bobble hat.
I’s know sissy. I’s just too cute, ain’t I?. This was the favorite foto of that posty.
This is me, Dezi, da day me came to live with mommy and sis Lexi.
Really bad 35mm camera shot. Oh how times have changed.
You know, there was a time when peeps couldn’t get enuff of me either. There’s just somethin’ ‘bout a kitten that peeps just go gaga over. There’s even a day this month called cuddly kitten day.
That’s me, sweet Dezi at about 3 months old. Yeah, da
redhead is mommy, and so is da baby in da black & white foto.
Really sissy? You know, I’s glad peeps like me and all, but there are so many kitties in the world that don’t have luvvin’ furever homes. I’s might not have enjoyed mine’s “spa day”, but I’s so fankful that mommy cares enuff ‘bout me to make sure that I’s the healthiest I’s can be, and not makin’ more baby kittens to end up homeless or worse.
I’s hope I’s never have to do dat again. Dat “spa day” wasn’t any fun.
But mommy says I’s’ll be healthier now.
Yep Raena, an unaltered animal is more purrone to serious health issues. And those cute cuddly kittens grow up. Mommy says we’ll always be her cute cuddly babies, but amazinly enuff there are peeps out there that don’t feel that way. We’ll never unnerstand how somepawdy could throw away their beluvved baby, but it happens every day. Now we know we’re purreachin’ to the choir here, but just in case, Purrlease Spay and Neuter your pets, and support in any way you can, TNR efforts.
We are so very blest to have our mommy, and belong to a community of like minded peeps and anipals. We may not agree on everythin’, but we can all agree Spay/Neuter be the way to go.
Sure ‘nuff Raena. And while you might be kitten like fur a few more years, you’ve got a birthday comin’ up fast.
Ain’t I’s cute? I’s knew I’s hit da jackpot da minute I’s saw mommy.
Does that mean we’ll have a pawrty? Are birthday’s like Christmas? When is mine’s birthday, sissy? Will I’s….
Slow down Raena. Yes, we’ll have a pawrty. We’ll celebrate all month long. Birthday’s aren’t really like Christmas, but they do come ‘round every year. And your birthday is April 21st. That’s how we knew fur sure, you were meant to live with mommy and me. Your birthday is one week earlier than sis Lexi’s had been. When mommy found out your birthday, she unnerstood why she had been havin’ trouble findin’ a new helper fur me. Y, you hadn’t even been born yet. God has a plan and a time fur everythin’.
You mean you and mommy were waitin’ fur little ole me?
Yes Raena, we were. But don’t let it go to your head. We were blest to have found you. And you…
And I’s blest ya’ll found me. Really, I’s was. I’s got to be the luckiest most blest kitty girl in the universe. I’s got a great mommy, the bestest sisfur ever, and more furiends than I’s can count. And toys, lots and lots of toys. Mostly, I’s blest to be luvved so much.
Yep Raena, we’re fur sure blest. We wanted to update everypawdy on the fundraiser fur mommy. Mommy received a check fur $2,000.00 towards her dental this week. Fank you so much awnty Anonymous Angel and Kitties. Every dollar gets us that much closer to our goal and mommy bein’ able to get her teeth purroblems fixed. Ifin you can/want to donate to help mommy, you can do so on the fundraiser here, or by sendin’ directly through Paypal. Our Paypal donation email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. That’s lexi (dot) dezi (at) yahoo (dot) com. Ifin ya’ can’t send money, we sure would purreciate it ifin you would share the fundraiser and purray fur us. And another meowsy big fank you to awnty Petal.
you’d call this a back of head selfie. MOL
We wanted to say that we luv all our furiends. We know money is tight fur everypawdy, so don’t ever think we think any less of those of you who can’t donate. We don’t count our furiends with dollar signs. And we purray fur all of you every day. No matter how gloomy the day, or what you might be goin’ thru, furiends can make the sun shine in your life. We are so blest to have all of you in our lives and can’t even ‘magine our lives without ya’. ‘Member to take a minute today and every day to give fanks fur the blessings in your life.
Yep, this is mine’s teaser selfie. Can ya’ guess what
mommy’s holdin’? It’s comin’ up soon.
And don’t furget to check out the Sunday Selfies over at the Kitties Blue. We don’t really take selfies here, but mommy does get a lot of close up shots of us. So even ifin you’re not a selfie taker, you can still link up.
Till the next time………………………………………..Be Blest!!!

(While eating breakfast, Dezi and Raena start a little meow <chat>)
Meow Raena, did you enjoy your stroll yesfurday?
I’s sure did sissy. ‘Course we had to keep stoppin’ cuz mommy kept getting’ tired and coughin’. I’s’ll sure be glad when she gets well.
Yeah, me’s stroll was purretty much the same. We purrobably shoulda waited till she was well befur askin’ her to go strollin’.
But yesfurday was the last purretty day we’re gonna have fur a while. It was actually 90 degrees outside.
Yep and today’s in the 50’s and really windy. We’re all sneezin’ and wheezin’. MOL Anyways, it’s Blest Sunday, and we’ve fur sure got some blessings to be fankful fur; includin’ the nice weather we had last week. We received a whole bucket of honey madarins from sweet LouLou. Well, mommy actually received them. With her teethies in the condition they’re in, she can’t really eat ‘em, but she said she was gonn try juicin’ ‘em. Maybe that extra Vitamin C will help her get well faster.
I’s sure hope so sissy. I’s know we’re still enjoyin’ that yummy cheese wheel LouLou sent. We even get a bite every once in a while. And what a blessin’ we got yesfurday. Ya’ know when mommy was doin’ all that cryin’, and you were so worried ‘bout her and meowin’ to high heaven?
Yeah, turns out those were tears of joy. But me couldn’t be sure at furst. Ya’ know she was on the fone, and sometimes peeps aren’t so nice, and mommy don’t always fight back. But it turns out she was talkin’ with some of our Angels and they were tryin’ to figger out how to help mommy get that dental work she needs. They donated a hefty pawtion of what she needs, we just gotta raise the rest. And ya’ know mommy hates bein’ needy, and doesn’t expect anypawdy to do anythin’ fur her, so the respawnse by our pawsum Angels made her cry lots of joy tears. She reminds us everyday how much we are blest, and me always believes her when me looks into her eyes.
Me too sissy. Mommy luvs us so much. We oughtta remind everypawdy ‘bout the fundraiser here. And of course they can always donate directly to our paypal address: email@example.com. We purreciate all those who have donated so far to help our mommy. Ya’ know, we luv her and want her to feel as good as she can. And fanky fank ya’ awnty Petal, awnty Gretel, awnty Cindy and awnty Julie. And of course we continue to fank those we’ve already mentioned in previous postys.

(It’s Caturday and mommy seems upset. She’s in and out and on the phone a lot. Finally she settles down and both girls check on her and offer purrs)
What’s goin’ on mommy? Why did you go up to mr. W’s house? Is Buddy okay?
No baby, nothing’s okay.
What happened mommy? Why were there so many peeps outside and all those big trucks with flashin’ lights?
Oh girls, mr. W died sometime last night. All those flashing lights were the ambulance, police, fire trucks and coroner. They came to take mr. W away for the last time.
Our furiend Buddy.
Where’s Buddy? What happened to Buddy mommy?
That’s what I was trying to find out girls.
He must’a been so scared with all that commotion and all those peeps. He’s not very furiendly to begin with. And loud noises really scare him. And he’s mean to peeps he knows, I’s can only ‘magine how he’d be with all those strangers.
Yes, Raena, you’re right about all those things. I’m upset, because they called our local pound to come and catch him and take him away. I know we can’t keep him, and he probably wouldn’t be able to be rehomed. But at least he could have been with someone familiar who cared about him at the end.
Did Buddy go to heaven with sis Lexi?
Yes baby, he did. They declared him feral cuz of the way he was acting and shot him. Sometimes I hate our town and these back water people and their attitudes towards animals. Mr. W’s family didn’t wanna bother with Buddy, and he hadn’t put anything in writing stating his wishes or naming a person to make those decisions. It’s so frustrating when people don’t think about their pets and what will happen to that pet if they die or can no longer take care of them. And of course, this all hit me pretty hard. I do have a plan in place for ya’ll, but the person that was supposed to take care of it, recently died as well. I’m having trouble finding someone to replace them. But don’t you girls worry about that, I’ll get it worked out.
Well then mommy, that just means you can’t leave us.
Me agrees with Raena mommy. You’ll just have to stay right here with us.
I want nothing more girls. We are so blest to have each other.
You got that right mommy. Me might hiss and growl at Raena every now and then, but me is glad she’s here. Pest or not, me does luv her.
Fanky fanks sissy. I’s luvs you too. We are a very blest furmily to have so much luvs.
Yep Raena, we are. And we have so many pawsum furiends. What happened with Buddy is pawful, but it happens every day. Ifin we could urge you to do one thing, it would be to make purrpurrations fur your furry furmily members befur it’s too late. We are all blest to have so much, but none of us are guaranteed a tomorrow. This discussion may not be the most pawpular, or cheeriest discussion you could have, but it’s one of the most luvvin’ conversations you can have. Whether you’ve spent one day or ten plus years with you furry furmily member, purrparin’ fur their future, whatever that might be, is just as luvvin’ and purrtant as puttin’ fresh food and water down every day.
On another note, would like say fank you to those who have donated to mommy’s dental fundraiser. We’re still a long ways from the goal, but we’re purrayin’ and believin’ that mommy can hold out till we can get enuff to at least get rid of the teeth causin’ so much pain and infection. We purray the infection doesn’t spread and get outta control befur that happens. Ifin you would like to help us, you can donate directly to our PayPal usin’ our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org or by clickin’ here to donate thru the fundraiser.
We also wanna say fanky fank you all fur bein’ our furiends. Each day when we purray fur all of you, our hearts swell with joy. Just a few short years ago, we could have never ‘magined bein’ so blest with so many wonderful and caring furiends. We might not have anypawdy local that cares ‘bout us, but we do have all of you. Mommy says any time we don’t post on one of our regular days, there’s been an email or two from one or more of you checkin’ in on us.
That’s right Raena. We do have the bestest furiends in the universe. Each of us are blest. Sometimes ya’ just gotta stop a minute and see ‘em. So we’re remindin’ ya’ to take a minute today and everyday to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. We’re also joinin’ the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. And don’t furget to join us tomorrow fur Service Cat Monday. We got some great questions to answer. Me almost furgot; after our last posty, somepawdy asked how high our ceilings are. We looked at the buildin’ plans and then mommy measured as good as she could cuz there was a little confusion ’bout the plans. Anyways, our ceiling’s be ’bout 12-14 feet high. Yep, Raena is a long tall kitty girl.
Till the next time………………………………………Be Blest!!!
Have you (your human) made preparations for your (you/pet) in the event they outlive you?
If so, is it in writing or a verbal agreement?
Do you think it’s important to have it in writing?
