MeOW-llo Dear Sweet Furiends. Ya’ know, we luv all of you so much. We’ve always said that you’re only a visitor the furst time you come here. After that, you’re family. Truth is, we could’ve never ‘magined how big our family would become. We believe in celebratin’ furiendships every day. We think life is too short as it is and that you tell the ones in your life how much you luv ‘em and what they mean to you every chance you get.
MeOW-llo Furiends. C’mon Raena, it’s Blest Sunday. Me’s sure you’ve got some Blessings to count today, right?
Kittens!!! Is it already Blest Sunday? Time sure does fly by. but you’re right, I’s do have many Blessings to be fanky fankful fur this week.
Yeah Raena, time sure is movin’ by fast. It’s hard to believe that we’re already almost a full 2 months into the new year. It’s been slow goin’ ‘round here. Mommy’s tryin’ hard to get things packed up, but she can’t reach some of the things that are up high and down low isn’t much better.
Ain’t that the truth sissy. Y, just the other day she was tryin’ to pack up a cabinet and fell flat on her bee-hind. I’s didn’t even know we had that stuffs. There was a pan big enuff fur me to curl up in and take a nap. Guess mommy didn’t need to use it, so it got put in the cabinet of utter darkness.
The cabinet of utter darkness? Where did you get that from?
Well, you know, mommy never opens those cabinet doors, so it’s always dark in there. The cabinet of utter darkness, see?
Sometimes Raena, your logic scares me. But, me guesses it does kind’a make sense. Anyways, did you know that our Blogoversary is tomorrow? That’s right, we’ve been blogging fur 5 years. So much has changed in that time. When we started out, sis Lexi was still with us. We call our blog a happy accident cuz we didn’t have a clue what we were doin’ back then.
And we still don’t sissy…at least some days. But, it is really cool to think ‘bout sharin’ our lives and makin’ so many amazin’ furiends in that time.
Yeah Raena, we could’ve never ‘magined how our lives would change when we wrote our furst posty. Back then we used heavy cat speak. Not like our posty’s today that have occasional words and a more southern connotation. Cuz of our blog and amazin’ furiends, we got to attend BlogPaws in Nashville. We’ll always believe that trip is what gave us extra time with sis Lexi. She luvved to travel and that trip put the spring back in her step fur months. She was a huge Blessing in me’s life and mommy’s. We miss her so much.
She sounds so amazin’ sissy. I’s wish I’s could have known her.
She was Raena. But, she had to go away to make room fur you. Someday you’ll meet her when we all meet again in heaven. Till then, we have her memory to guide us and help comfort us. And of course, we can’t furget when we introduced you to the world. You sure were a scroungy stinky little thing.
It wasn’t like I’s could help it sissy. Fanky fankfully, mommy cleaned me up and made me all purretty as soon as we got settled in. I’s had never seen so many toys or had so much room to run in. I’s was in mine’s own little kitty heaven. More ‘purrtantly, I’s felt safe fur the furst time in mine’s short life. It was amazin’. That’s when I’s learned ‘bout bein’ Blest. I’s had a luvvin’ furever mommy, a gawjus sisfur, and more toys than I’s could play with at one time. I’s had no idea that day, how many pawsum furiends I’s was gonna have. To be luvved is somethin’ everypawdy should get to feel at least once in their lifetime.
Yeah Raena, me couldn’t believe mommy brought you home, but you turned out not to be that bad. Altho’, you do still get on me’s nerves every once in a while. Anyways, cuz you were gonna need trainin’ we decided to start our Service Cat posty’s. We thought we’d post a few Trainin’ stories and that would be that. But, they were so pawpular that they evolved to encompass all kinds of topics from Trainin’ Tips to Nutrition. So, we infurmally changed the name to Training Tips and Everything Feline. That series is goin’ on 3 years now.
Don’t furget the Blessing Train sissy. That’s been so much fun. We just had our 2nd annual Blessing Train event and it was better than the furst. I’s can’t wait fur our next one.
You’re right Raena. It’s always fun when our furiends purrticipate in our events. And of course, we can never furget ‘bout Blest Sunday. It’s been a pawrt of our blog in some form from the beginning. We’ve had more than our share of bad times, but no matter what may be goin’ on ‘round us, we knew we always wanted to have a day where we could share our Blessings and Give Thanks fur those Blessings.
I’s luvs Blest Sundays sissy. I’s fanky fank God every day fur mommy and you and all our furiends. I’s so very fanky fankful fur mine’s life.
We are indeed very Blest Raena. We hope all our furiends will join our Blogoversary celebration. Because of all your luv and suppurrt, we’re still here and goin’ strong. We luv you all so very much. Thank you fur bein’ Blessings in our lives. We hop you’ve enjoyed seein’ some of our flashback fotos.
I’s sure did sissy. I’s gonna link us up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and then take a short nap befur mommy starts packin’ again.
As we do each week, we’d like to remind you to take a minute today and every day to Give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. We heard a saying the other day and wanted to pass it on. No matter what you may be goin’ thru, things will get better…”it can’t rain all the time”. Thank you fur bein’ with us fur the past 5 years. Here’s to many many more.
Till the next time…………………………………………..Be Blest!!!

Deztinee and RaenaBelle
Hey, everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. Wha’ch’all doin’? Is it hot enuff fur ya’? Did you know that some of our furiends on the other side of the world are havin’ winter? I’s couldn’t hardly believe mine’s ears. It’s hard fur a little kitty girl to comprehend how it can be so totally different somewhere else. But sure ‘nuff, it can be.
RaenaBelle, what are you meowin’ ‘bout now? Me thought we were gonna meow some amazin’ facts ‘bout us today?. Ya’ know, me’s good furiend CK came up with more questions and we furgot to post ‘em on Blest Sunday.
Your good furiend? Don’t you mean our good furiend sissy? I’s luvs CK too.
Sure Raena, whatever. (Dezi mumbles under her breath) She was me’s furiend furst. Anyways, let’s look at the questions and see how we’re gonna divide ‘em up.
Divide ‘em up? I’s think we should both answer all the questions sissy. After all, I’s sure everypawdy wants to know the same things ‘bout both of us. I’s’ll answer furst and then you, k?
1. What’s your favorite number?
Raena: I’s don’t know that I’s have a favorite nummer…is all a nummer?
Dezi: (shakes head) Me’s favorite nummer is 1, cuz me’s birthday is on the furst day of the month that starts with two one’s, ya’ know, November, 11/1.
2. What is your dream job?
Raena: Oooooh Mine’s favorite job is bein’ mommy’s Service Cat. I’s luvs spendin’ time with mommy helpin’ her and gettin’ luvvin’ all, there it is, mine’s favorite nummer, the time. Don’t you sissy?
Dezi: Yep Raena, me luvs bein’ mommy’s little helper too. But me thinks me would also like to be a famous actor or writer. Ya’ know, me would like to see me’s name in lights.
Raena: Ooooh yeah, me too sissy. I’s wanna be famous too. I’s wanna be just like you.
Dezi: (Dezi whines) RaenaBelle…
3. What is something no one would ever guess about you?
Raena: Even tho’ I’s wanna be just like sissy and do everythin’ she does, I’s an Alpha kitty all the way.
Dezi: You are at that Raena. And as much as mommy wanted me to be the Alpha when sis Lexi went to heaven, all me wanted to do was be mommy’s little baby girly. Me didn’t wanna be in charge fur nuffin’.
4. A trait you have that people would be shocked to know about you?
Raena: Well, I’s guess you could call me a bit of a pest…Sometimes.
Dezi: Sometimes? Hmmmpht Me couldn’t really care less ‘bout treats. Ifin we get ‘em that’s great, ifin we don’t, me doesn’t miss ‘em.
Raena: That’s not a shocker sissy, everypawdy already knows that.
Dezi: Okay Raena. Well, sometimes, me sets Raena up to get in trouble. MOL (Dezi starts rolling around and laughing while Raena looks at her with shock on her face)
Raena: Really sissy? That’s not very nice. Why would you do that?
Dezi: Movin’ right along Raena. We need to answer the rest of these questions.
5. Do you think aliens are real?
Raena: Aliens? Hmmmm I’s don’t know what that is, so I’s s’pose I’s don’t think aliens are real.
Dezi: The only real aliens are the illegal kind.
6. Can you use a hooded litter box?
Raena: I’s use the Litter Robot. It doesn’t have a hood really, it’s more of a spaceship. But we do have a hooded pawtty box that we also use.
Dezi: What Raena meowed. Me purrfurs a covered pawtty box fur sure. It’s the only way to get any purrivacy ’round here.
7. Guilty pleasure?
Raena: Guilty purrleasure? Hmmmm Is that somethin’ dirty or naughty?
Dezi: (Dezi laughs at Raena) Pepperoni pizza. Altho’ we haven’t had one of those in so long me can barely ‘member what it tastes like.
8. If the world ends (as you know it) do you want to survive?
Raena: I’s would only wanna survive ifin mommy and sis Dezi were still with me.
Dezi: Yep, me too. Me wouldn’t wanna survive without mommy. And yes, me would even want the little pest to be with us too.
Raena: Aaaaaaaaaaaaw Fanky fank you sissy. I’s knew you luvv… (Raena goes to hug Dezi)
Dezi: Ugh, Get off me, Raena. Don’t let it go to your head.
9. Do you have any outstanding markings?
Raena: I’s a bicolored Ragdoll that’s also a tortie. I’s have one orange striped in the middle of mine’s furhead, and an orange tipped ear.
Can ya’ see it?
Dezi: Me’s a Lynx point Ragdoll who’s also a tortie and me has an orange patch on the top of me’s head and stripes on me’s arms and legs.
Ain’t me purretty?
10. Favorite kitten game that you played?
Raena: I’s still a kitten and I’s think every game is fun. Mine’s favorites are the ‘lectric ones. I’s so luvs turnin’ ‘em on and off. MOL
Dezi: Me’s favorite game is anythin’ that involves mommy. Me luvs “gonna ge’cha’”.
11. Do you purr to yourself?
Raena: Sure I’s do. It makes me feel better.
Dezi: Yep, me purrs a lot.
12. Milk or Tuna juice?
Raena: Neither. I’s actually never tried either of them.
Dezi: Does ice cream count?
Ice cream? When did you get ice cream sissy? I’s just luvs purr-layin’ these kinds of games sissy. I’s luvs learnin’ more ‘bout our furiends. I’s hope lots of bloggers play along.
Isn’t sis Lexi bootyful? The canvas is still wrapped in
plastic till mommy decides where to hang it. That’s why it’s shiny like that.
Me too Raena. That actually reminds me ‘bout a give away we won from our pawsum furiend Cody. A while back he was givin’ away a purrsonalized canvas from Petsy. Mommy was really torn ‘bout who to put on it, but she decided to memorialize sis Lexi fur her birthday. Anyways, we got our canvas last week and it looks so purretty. Mommy luvs it. Fanks again fur the oppurrtunity to win such a pawsum purrize, Cody.
It sure is bootyful sissy. Now mommy needs to have one made of us. Ya’ know, we better wrap this up and go finish brekky.
Till the next time……………………………………..Be Blest!!!
