Blest Sunday: Emergency Preparedness and Prayers

Hey Raena, do you know what day it is?

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

 

          Sure I’s do sissy. It’s time fur our Blest Sunday posty. You know what we haven’t done in a while? 

 

What’s that Raena?

          We’ve not welcomed all our new furiends. Ya’ know, we say ifin ya’ come by once, you’re a visitor, ifin ya’ come back again, you’re family.

 

That’s right Raena. We’re so happy to have so many pawsum furiends. Me’s sis Lexi always said we had the bestest furiends in the universe. And, me’s sis Lexi was hardly ever wrong. 

 

          I’s sure wish I’s could’a met her sissy.

You would’a liked her Raena. But, ifin she was still here, you wouldn’t be. Mommy says things work out the way they’re s’posed too. We might not unnerstand why things happen the way they do, but, God has a plan fur everythin’ and we just have to believe He’ll take care of us. 

 

 

Raena lays on the back of the chair

 

 

          Like all those hurricanes, sissy? I’s sure don’t unnerstand why they have to happen. We’ve got so many furiends bein’ affected by ‘em. I’s really worried ‘bout their safety. 

 

Me too Raena, but all we can do is purray fur them. Fankfully, there are lots of peeps comin’ together to help out. You know, we saw a lot of those helpers last night on the chatter box.

 

          I’s was so happy to see all those peeps reunited with their furry furmily members. And, to learn that the laws were changed so that anipals had to be included in all rescue effurts. Peeps are furinally startin’ to unnerstand just how ‘purrtant us anipals are to our humans. I’s know mommy would never go off to save herself and leave us behind. And now, the law’s on her side and she wouldn’t have too. 

 

Dezi lays on chair

 

Yeah Raena, me’s happy ‘bout that too. So offen in the past, anipals have had to fend fur themselves, cuz rescuers and shelters didn’t allow anipals to accompany their humans durin’ disasters of any kind. Even tho’ anipals can now accompany their humans, steps should still be taken to make sure we could be reunited in the event we were to get separated.

 

 

          Like our microchips, sissy? Ya’ know, I’s wasn’t crazy ‘bout gettin’ that thing to begin with. But, ifin it helps to make sure I’s will always be with mommy, I’s glad I’s got it. 

 

 Dezi bathes atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

Yep Raena, our microchips are a purrfect way to identify us and help make sure that we’ll always be with mommy. But, the microchip alone won’t work ifin ya’ don’t keep the infurmation updated with the chippin’ company. Our chips are registered with Petlinks. Mommy checks our infurmation at least a few times a year. Since not too much changes ‘round here, that’s all she needs too. But, ifin we were to move, change our noms, require meds, or change VETs or anythin’ else, mommy would need to update our profiles’ to reflect those changes. Could you ‘magine us bein’ separated from mommy and not gettin’ the food we’re used too? As ifin bein’ scared wouldn’t be bad enuff, but then, we might not even eat cuz the food would be wrong.

 

 Raena lays in mommy's lap

 

 

          Not that we’d eat anyways, but it’s a good idea, just in case. It’s also a good idea, to have copies of our chip nummers, mommy’s fone nummer and VET records in an emergency bag in the event we had to evacuate or somethin’. And, our peeps should also make sure to keep some fresh noms and bottled water, food and water bowls, a first aid kit, any meds or supplements we might need, leashes, harnesses/collars, some litter, a small box, a comfurt blanky or nip mat and maybe even a toy or two should also be in our emergency bag. You can check out our post here fur a list of things you should have in the event of an emergency.

Those are some great suggestions Raena. We are so fankful that mommy’s purrpared. While it’s unlikely we’ll be hit by a hurricane, we are subject to tornadoes, wild fires and even earthquakes. We’ve heard from many of our furiends in the path of the current hurricanes, and we’re so happy that they are all still together. But, there are many peeps and anipals that aren’t. We’re purrayin’ fur all those in need. We’re very blest to not be facin’ these storms ourselves and to be home safe and sound with our mommy. We are also blest to have so many amazin’ furiends. We’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives and to say a little purrayer fur all those in need.

          We’d also like to remind everypawdy that wants to help to check out the many ways you can by clickin’ the links here. We’re joinin’ the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and sendin’ lots of hugs to all of you. Fanky fank ya’ fur bein’ our furiends. Purrlease, stay safe and ifin you’re in the path of a storm, keep in touch so we can all know how to purray and/or help. And join us tomorrow fur another Service Cat Monday posty. 

 

Till the next time………………………………………..Be Blest!!!

Blest Sunday: Living the Life

Hey Raena, hurry, we need to write our Blest Sunday posty.

 

Raena lounges on perch and watches the rain out the front door

 

          I’s comin’ sissy, I’s was watchin’ a squirrel out the door. Did you see him come up to the door and taunt me? He threw a rock at me.

 

 Dezi looks outside from the cat tree

 

 

Yeah, me saw him Raena, but that wasn’t a rock. It sounded like a rock, but it was really one of those nuts from those trees outside. 

 

Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

          Rock, nut, either way, he was makin’ fun of me. He should be real careful ‘bout doin’ that. After all, I’s the mighty huntress of buffalo and giraffes and monkeys.

 

 Raena gets close to the TV

 

 

Sure you are Raena, sure you are. Me bets that squirrel is shakin’ in his fur. Anyways, we need to fank all our furiends fur purrayin’ fur us. You know how sick we were the week befur last. Mommy was even considerin’ takin’ us to the house of horrors VET. Neither of us wanted any pawrt of that. But, me does have to say, me felt so bad, me was actually thinkin’ that mommy was right and we needed to see somepawdy ‘bout our purroblem. Fankfully, all our furiends banded together to purray fur us, and we started feelin’ better right away.

 

          We sure did, sissy. I’s sooooooooooooo glad our tummy rumbles are gone and we’re back to normal again. I’s also glad mommy gave you one last bath. you really smelled bad. 

 

Hey, Grrrrrrrrr  That’s not very nice. 

 

 

          It may not be nice sissy, but it’s the truth. Mommy says we both stank and needed a good bath. I’s felt lots better after mine’s bath. And, mine’s fur looked so purretty and floofy. You know, us girly’s gotta take care of ourselves. A little purrimpin’ and purreenin’ never hurt anykitty. 

 

 Dezi lays on the bed

 

 

Yeah Raena, me felt better after me’s bath too. And, after rollin’ ‘round on mommy and the purrfumed sweet smellin’ sheets, we smelled like girls again. 

 

          Meowin’ of feelin’ better, mommy’s feelin’ better too sissy. Her gums are still healin’, but she’s feelin’ so much better. And, she’s getting’ better with those new teethies. She’s graduated from smashed taters to baked taters and other soft like foods like pasta.

 

 Gift box with cheez-it, bread, pb crakers, and pasta sauce

 

 

Yep Raena, and she was some kind’a x’cited when she received a couple boxes this week from one of our Angels. You know how much mommy likes Cheez-its and M & M’s. Mommy was so x’cited she couldn’t wait to try out her new teethies on those Cheez-it crackers.

 

 Sharp Cheddar Cheese gift

 

 

          Did you see the cooler box sissy? It had real live sharp cheddar cheese in it. I’s sure hope mommy gives me a bite. And I’s don’t know who’s more x’cited ‘bout the Apple Zings, you or mommy?. Mommy said she couldn’t wait till she could eat cold cereal again. 

 

 Apple Zings gift

 

 

Yeah Raena, me likes those Apple Zings too. They’re so much fun to bat ‘round the house. And every once in a while mommy will drop one that’s all soft and full of milk. Since us kitties are lactose intolerant, we don’t get much milk ‘round here. So, a squishy Apple Zing is a really nice treat. 

 

Large bag of M & M's

 

          Really? in that case, I’s can’t wait to try ‘em. Fanky fank you sweet Angels, we really do purreciate ya’ll sendin’ mommy some yummy noms. Mommy’s cookin’ up that turkey tom lurkey today, and she plans to make some sammiches with that pawsum bread. And I’s can’t wait fur her to eat some of those peanut butter crackers. I’s sure do like peanut butter. 

 

 Turkey Breast

 

 

Me too Raena. Turkey tom lurkey and peanut butter…what a life. We are such blest kitties. And mommy says we have another surpurrise comin’ our way in a couple weeks. Me can’t wait to see what it is.

 

          Another surpurrise? When did you hear that sissy? What do ya’ reckon it is? 

 

 Dezi lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

Ifin me knew Raena, it wouldn’t be a surpurrise. Just know that it’s gotta be good cuz mommy’s x’cited and said we gotta clean house. We are so fankful fur all our furiends. Ya’ll are just the bestest. As always, we wanna remind you to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. 

 

 Raena sits in amazon box

 

 

          Hey sissy, this weekend is a long one, cuz of a holiday. We also wanna remind everypawdy to be safe and don’t drink and drive. And ‘member, us anipals don’t always enjoy human celebrations. So, ifin you’re hostin’ a pawrty, make sure we have a quiet place to get away from all the commotion and festivities.

 

Good job Raena. Now, let’s link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and go play.

 

Till the next time……………………………………….Be Blest!!!

Blest Sunday: Rain Dancing & Blessings

Mmrrrrr Hiss, Stop it Raena, it’s time fur Blest Sunday.

 

 Dezi looks up at Raena atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

          C’mon sissy, I’s just wanna play. Meowin’ of blessings, look ‘round. We’re so blest to have so much to play with.

 

We are Raena. But, you know blessings aren’t all ‘bout the material things.

 

Raena plays with remote mouse

 

 

          ‘Course I’s know that sissy, but still, it’s nice to have ‘em. But, I’s also know that we’re blest to have such a pawsum mommy. Did we not have fun this weekend? Even tho’ mommy woke up feelin’ sicker than a dog, she made time fur us. 

 

 Dezi walks outside in her harness on a leash

 

 

Yep Raena, she sure did. We had asked ifin she would take us fur a stroll but mommy did even better. Well, sort of. Me got all harnessed up, and thinkin’ me was goin’ fur a stroll furst, me went straight over to the stroller. To me’s sur-purrise, mommy snatched me up in her arms and took me outside. She even let me touch me’s paws to the grass. We were lolly-gaggin’ (wastin’ time) ‘round when all of a sudden mommy realized she had left the camera in the house. Did you know we could hear you meowin’ at the door all the way on the other side of the ‘pawrtment complex?

  

          I’s wanted to be with you and mommy sissy. What did you x’pect me to do, wait mine’s turn patiently?

 

Kittens Raena, you could see us every minute. Anyways, realizin’ we didn’t have the camera, but seein’ that me was really enjoyin’ the great outdoors, mommy said, “It’s okay Dezi, we don’t have to have photos of everythin’, all the time.” So, we just kept walkin’ ‘round. Till that is, mommy got tired of hearin’ you mewin’ at the door like a little lost kitten. 

 

 Raena walks towards the woods on her harness

 

 

          Well sissy, I’s figgered ya’ll had been out there purrlenty long enuff that surely it was mine’s turn. I’s couldn’t wait to get outside and put mine’s paws on the grass. We even stopped off at the mailboxes to check the mail. And, that’s when it happened. Mine’s nice long leisurely stroll got cut short. In mere seconds the birds stopped singin’ and the skies turned black as night. The heavens opened up and let the flood waters fall. Oh MeOW, I’s headed straight fur the pawrkin’ lot to dance in the rain. Mommy was yellin’ somethin’ I’s couldn’t quite make out thru all the noise of the storm. And then, befur I’s could get mine’s paw in the puddle on the sidewalk, mommy snatched me up and took off runnin’ towards our ‘pawrtment.

 

 Dezi looks outside from the cat tree

 

 

Yep Raena, ya’ll looked so funny. Mommy can’t actually run to save her life, so ya’ll were doin’ more like a quick hobble. Mommy’s head was lookin’ down as much as she can bend her head, and you were starin’ straight up pawin’ at the air.

 

          Oh sissy, it was so much fun. Till we got back inside that is. I’s was soaked. All mine’s fur was wet. It took hours fur me to dry off. And, you were no help, hidin’ out unner the bed. 

 

How many times does me have to tell ya’, Me’s Not HIDIN’, me’s purrtectin’ mommy and you from spiders and other creepy crawlers.

 

 Raena eats treats on cat tree

 

 

          Yeah, sure. Whatever you say sissy. I’s just happy we got some special time with mommy. We are indeed blest.

 

We most certainly are Raena. And, one of our angels sent some green papers fur mommy to get somethin’ special fur all of us. We sure did purreciate it. We’ll tell ya’ all ‘bout that shoppin’ trip later.

 

          Hey sissy, did you see the card mommy got from another bloggin’ angel? She had been blest by somepawdy and wanted to pass it along. We furgot to ask ‘bout name droppin’, but she knows who she is, and we’re sendin’ fanky fanks and hugs your way. 

 

 Dezi lays on cat tree and looks down

 

 

We have the bestest furiends in the universe Raena. Fank you all fur bein’ our furiends and pawrt of our furmily. We’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. Each new day brings new blessings ifin we’ll just stop and see ‘em. We’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies too. C’mon Raena, let’s go play.

Blest Sunday: We’ve Missed You & We’re Back

Hey Raena, come on, it’s time fur our Blest Sunday posty.

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

          Are you sure sissy? You know, mommy’s been confused ‘bout what day it is fur the last few days now. Kind’a like we get on the silvervine we had the other day.

 

 

 Dezi with silvervine on cat tree

 

Yeah, me knows, Raena. But, mommy checked all the things she normally does when she passes out and it’s fur sure Blest Sunday. Now, hurry, we don’t wanna miss church. 

 

 Raena with silvervine on cat tree

 

          I’s comin’ sissy. Ya’ know, I’s really missed all our catputer time and visitin’ with our furiends these last couple of weeks, but, I’s gotta tell ya’ spendin’ extra time with mommy has been great. 

 

 Dezi with silvervine on the cat tree

 

Me knows what ya’ mean Raena. Ya’ know, one might think that since mommy’s home all the time, we get lots of time to ourselves to play with her. But that just ain’t true. There’s the catputer time of writin’ and researchin’ fur our postys, helpin’ us visit our furiends, doin’ the regular every day cleanin’ that one has to do to keep from livin’ in a pig sty. Not that there’s anythin’ wrong with livin’ in a pig sty…ifin you’re a pig; but ya’ know, us kitties like things a bit more tidy. And there’s the business stuffs that seems never endin’, and of course there’s the passin’ out time, that mommy spends unconscious every day. So, it really isn’t play time all day, every day. 

 

 Raena with silvervine on cat tree

 

          So true, sissy. But, all in all, we are very blest to have the lives we have. Even with all those things happenin’, mommy still makes time to spend with us and with each of us by ourselves each day. Still, it has been fun these last couple of weeks.

 

 Dezi with silvervine on the cat tree

 

Yep, sure ‘nuff. But, mommy has purromissed that startin’ this week, we’re gonna get back to business as usual. We wanna fank all our amazin’ furiends fur their luv, suppurrt and patience while mommy’s been goin’ thru all this dental stuffs. It was a little more traumatic than mommy had originally anticipated, and she’s not 100% yet. But, she is doin’ well and getting’ better every day. She’s back on the smashed tater diet, with some added cheese fur much needed protein to stay strong. Mommy even said she doesn’t mind the taters so much, she just can’t wait fur the day when she can actually bite and chew somethin’ again. And she’s even purromissed fotos, once she’s healed and all the swellin’ has gone down.

 

 Raena with silvervine on cat tree

 

          Now that’s somethin’, sissy. We all know how rare fotos of mommy are. She luvs pointin’ the flashy box at us, but herself? That’s another matter all together. MOL  I’s gonna be happy to get back to visitin’ all our furiends tho’. I’s sure hope we haven’t missed too much. We are blest to have the bestest furiends ever. We better wrap this up, church is ‘bout to start.

 

 Raena with silvervine on cat tree

 

You’re right Raena. Furst, we wanna remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. Ya’ know when ya’ start your day with a smile and a fanks, the whole day goes a little bit better. And, even tho’ we don’t really do selfies, we’re joinin’ the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. We hope you enjoyed our day with the silvervine, we sure did. MOL  Me’s gotta go now. We’ll see you all soon.

 

Till the next time……………………………………Be Blest!!!

Blest Sunday: Blest In the Darkest Hour

Meow and welcome to a brand new Blest Sunday. The sun is shinin’, at least fur now. The birds are singin’ and the butterflies are all aflitter.

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

           What in the world are you meowin’ ‘bout, sissy? I’s don’t see any butterflies flitterin’, and I’s don’t hear any birds singin’ either. What is flitterin’ anyways?

 

 Dezi lays atop the liberty cat tree

 

Okay, so maybe it’s not a Snow White moment Raena, but it is Blest Sunday. And that’s somethin’ to meow ‘bout.

 

 Raena lays on nip mat on Liberty cat tree

 

 

          I’s agree sissy. Just don’t be lyin’ to our furiends. Mommy says we’re not s’posed to lie.

 

 Dezi lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

Me wasn’t lyin’ Raena. Me was settin’ the stage. Or maybe it was wishful thinkin’ or somethin’. But, mommy’s right. Lyin’ isn’t right, even ifin it’s just stretchin’ the truth. So, fur the moment, the sun is shinin’, all the rest, was just a figment of me’s ‘magination. You know, no matter what else be goin’ on ‘round us, or how we may be feelin’, we’re bein’ blest every minute of every day. Even on our worst days, when things seem the darkest, ifin we take a moment to give fanks fur our blessings, we feel a bit better. 

 

 Raena sits on perch at door and looks up

 

          That’s right sissy. Mommy says every breath we breathe is a blessin’ that’s not guaranteed. Every furiend we’ve made since bein’ a pawrt of this wonderful world called the innernet, is a blessin’ we never could have imagined. The bond and carin’ shown amongst all of us is astonishin’ and awe inspirin’.

 

Dezi lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

You’re right ‘bout that Raena. A lot of our furiends our goin’ thru some tough times right now. It makes us sad that they have to go thru these trials. But, when we all band together in purrayer and suppurt, things change fur the better. We rarely unnerstand a trial, ‘specially while we’re goin’ thru it, but one way or another, we come out stronger and better on the other side. There are too many needs to list them all, and we wouldn’t wanna miss anypawdy; but you know who you are. Know, that we’re purrayin’ fur ya’ and sendin’ ya’ the biggest kitty hugs ever. Fank you all fur bein’ our furiends. Fur luvvin’ us, and suppurrtin’ us, and purrayin’ fur us in our time of need. We will always be here fur you.

 

 Raena lays on top of the Liberty Cat Tree

Mine’s selfie from atop the cat tree.

 

          Meowin’ of suppurt sissy, we need to fanky fank a few peeps fur donatin’ to mommy’s dental fund. A meowsy big fanky fank ya’ to awnty Theresa, awnty Kat and LouLou and awnty Suzanne. Ifin ya’ haven’t met our sweet furiend LouLou, you really should check her out. And, ifin you’d like to help mommy with her dental, you can donate thru the fundraiser here, or directly to our paypal with lexi.dezi@yahoo.com. We’ll be goin’ back to the dentist this week, cuz they said the “bite” impurrsion they took didn’t turn out and they need another one. Might have somethin’ to do with the huge overbite mommy has. Oh well, hopefully, this one will work. We just feel blest to be able to have this concern. And, I’s look furward to another mommy and me day out. Those are always soooooo much fun.

 

 Dezi gets loving while laying on the arm of chair-selfie

Me’s gettin’ luvvin’ selfie.

 

 

Uh, who said you were the one goin’ Raena? Ya’ know, me just might wanna go this time. But, we’ll meow ‘bout that later. Fur now, we just wanna remind everypawdy to take a minute today and everyday to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. And say a little purrayer fur all those in need, you may never know how much it was needed at that moment. We’re also joinin’ the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. Raena, let’s go play befur the storms come.

 

Till the next time……………………………………….…Be Blest!!!
