Chatting Cats: Getting Ready And Catching Up

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s sure hope ya’ll are stayin’ cool what with all this heat. I’s know t’ween the heat of summer of these things mommy calls her own purrsonal summers, she’s been glistenin’ a lot. What’s that? Glistenin’, you ask? Well, ladies in the South don’t sweat, they glisten. Yep, that’s right, us Southern Belles naturally glisten. And here all these beauty bloggers are spendin’ big bucks on pots of powder to do what we do naturally. MOL 

 

Dezi lays on scratcher and looks back over her shoulder

 

 

 

          RaenaBelle!!!  What are you meowin’ ‘bout now? Me’s sure mommy won’t ‘purreciate you meowin’ ‘bout her glistenin’. As soon as she gets her head outta the fureezer, me’s gonna tell her you blabbed to the world.

 

Raena sits on small perch and looks out the door

 

 

 

 

Sure you will sissy. (Looking out the door from the small perch, Raena sees the lawn crew drive up) I’s have a feelin’ you’re gonna be UTB (under the bed) befur that happens. And, mommy has her regular monthly doctors ‘pointment today, so we’ll be gone this afternoon. I’s bet by the time we get home, you’ve already furgotten what I’s might have meowed, when and to who.

 

Dezi plays on scratcher

 

 

 

 

 

          Whom, Raena, the word’s whom. 

 

Whom? Whom are you meowin’ ‘bout sissy, and why? 

 

Dezi scratches scratcher

 

 

 

 

          That’s who, Raena. Oh furget it. Ya’ll better not stay out too long, we’ve got lots of furiends left to visit. We’re slowly gettin’ caught up. But Kittens!!!, when you get behind a few days it takes furever to get all caught up.  

 

Raena sits stop the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

 

That’s true sissy, but we are makin’ headway. I’s just hate it when we get behind. I’s miss hearin’ what’s goin’ on with all our furiends. Anyways, I’s doubt we’ll be gone too long. It’s s’posed to be in the triple digits today, so I’s sure mommy’ll wanna hurry and get back home. I’s do know we’re gonna make a stop and get us somethin’ special to eat fur the 4th. Fanky fanks to awnty Vonda who sent a few green papers and told mommy to get us all somethin’ that we can enjoy. Now what’s the big deal ‘bout the 4th again?

 

Dezi lays on scratcher and licks paw

 

 

 

          Well Raena, it’s Independence day. The day the furfathers signed the Declaration of Independence. That’s the good pawrt. The bad pawrt is that humans think they oughtta buy a bunch of gun powder in nifty packagin’ and set ‘em off till all hours of the night. We’re in fur a week or so of boom, boom, booms keepin’ us up and interfurrin’ with our beauty naps.

 

Like the ones we heard last night and the night befur sissy? 

 

          Yep, Raena, just like ‘em. 

 

Raena sits pretty on the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

Those weren’t too bad sissy. But, they better not keep us up all night. I’s want mine’s mommy and me cuddle time. Meowin’ of, guess I’s better go see what mommy’s doin’ and get ready to go to town. Why don’t you get us a nice cubby ready fur the boom boom show. Any requests fur our special meal?

 

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

Blest Sunday: Sisterly Meanderings

MeOW C’mon RaenaBelle, it’s Blest Sunday. And do we ever have the Blessings to give Fanks fur. Me just luvs givin’ Fanks, don’t you?

          Yep sissy, I’s do, cuz it means we have another day to lives and luvs. Looks like Summer arrived and kicked Spring on down the road. I’s guess that’s okay tho’, mommy said Spring wouldn’t be stayin’ long. It’s turned really hot and there’s been lots of fun teevee to watch from mine’s purrch. Y, I’s saw birdy’s and wasps and bunnies last week. Mommy says the waspys are dangerous and she’s always sprayin’ somethin’ outside to make ‘em go away. They must not be too smart tho’, cuz they just keep comin’ back fur more. 

 

Dezi lays on cat tree while Raena bathes laying on cat tree

 

 

 

Yep Raena, mommy’s ‘lergic to waspys, so that’s why she’s always tryin’ to shoo ‘em off. Now where did you see those bunnies? Me didn’t see any bunnies. 

 

Raena looks out at snow from small perch

 

 

 

          They were right outside sissy, eatin’ the grass and flowers. There’ll be more bunnies to see, don’t worry summer’s furinally here. In the meantime, we oughtta give fanky fanks fur the nice weather and all our furiends.

 

Me is fankful fur the nice warm weather Raena. And of course me’s always fankful fur our furiends. Meowin’ of furiends, mommy got a birthday card last week from awnty Mary Beth and uncle Garth. And they also included a card from Gizmo and the rest of the furry family. Mommy thought that was just the sweetest thing ever.

 

Raena lays atop Liberty Cat tree and hangs paw over edge

 

 

 

          Ain’t that the truth sissy?. She also got a card and some green papers yesfurday from one of our Anonymous awnties, that made her smile. Actually, I’s think it was more of a big o’l grin rather than a smile. Mommy’s kind’a embarrassed right now cuz she doesn’t have a tooth in her mouth.

 

Dezi atop the cat tree looking down

 

 

 

Oh Raena meowin’ of mommy’s toothlessness, she had furgotten till recently that she had to renew her driver’s license befur the end of May. Ya’ know license fotos aren’t meant to be purrtraits, but mommy’s always gotten all purrettied up fur the foto anyways. Ya’ know she paints her face and fixes her hair and gets ready to pose and smile her big teeth showin’ smile. But, this year she doesn’t have any teeth fur that smile, so when she sat down to have her foto taken, all she could do was grin. She looks so funny, kind’a like a blowfish or somethin’. 

 

          Sissy, that’s not very nice of you to compare mommy to a blowfish. Besides, how do you even know what a blowfish looks like? 

 

Dezi gets loving while laying in mommy's lap

 

 

 

C’mon Raena, mommy knows she looks funny without any teethies. Her lips have all but disappeared. She keeps pushin’ ‘em out cuz she says skinny lips mean she’s gettin’ old. And you know how much mommy hates lookin’ old. MOL 

 

          That’s the truth sissy, she blames every wrinkle and gray hair on us. I’s can’t ‘magine why she would even think such a thing. 

 

Me neither Raena. Oh well, we’ll think ‘bout that tomorrow. Me wonders how many of our furiends might be the cause of their peeps wrinkles and gray hairs? Anyways, we wanna Fank all our furiends fur their luv and fur sharin’ their lives with us. As always, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives.

Blest Sunday: A Very Special Thank You

MeOW  C’mon Raena, it’s Blest Sunday, and we have lots of things to meow ‘bout today. As you know, today is mommy’s birthday and Memorial day weekend. This month has just flown by.

 

Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

 

 

          It sure has sissy. How old do ya’ think mommy is? Do ya’ reckon she’ll tell us this year? 

 

Dezi looks at camera while sitting on cat scratcher

 

 

 

All me knows Raena is that she’s old, as in wrinkles and gray hair and creakin’ bones old. Me’s not sure even she ‘members how old she is Raena. Ya’ know, they say the memory’s the furst thing to go. MOL 

 

Raena lays under pet cot from KH

 

 

 

          Oh sissy, I’s don’t think mommy would find that so funny. But, I’s do agree that mommy’s memory ain’t what it used to be. Anyways, I’s don’t really care how old she is, I’s just glad she’s our mommy. I’s do luvs her whole bunches. You know she always puts us furst. Y, she got some green papers fur her birthday and ended up spendin’ most of ‘em on us. Seems that Drs. Foster and Smith place had our Primal Freeze Dried Rabbit noms on sale fur half purrice. We don’t think we’ve ever seen ‘em that cheap anywhere. So, mommy used her special money to get us a few bags.

 

Birthday card from Ingrid, Pipo and Dalton

Fank you awnty Ingrid, Pipo and Dalton.

 

 

 

 

Yep Raena, we do have a good mommy, that’s fur sure. We do wanna say a meowsy big Fank you to awnty Vonda, awnty Susan, awnty Anonymous, and awnty Ingrid, Pipo and Dalton fur mommy’s birthday money. Mommy cried a lot of happy tears this past week.

 

Dezi and Raena sniff the maranta from Ellen for mommy A's birthday

 

 

 

          She did sissy. And then she cried some more when she got the box from my kitty godmommy awnty Ellen. Mommy luvs exotic house plants. Rumor is that she used to have a whole house full. Anyways, one of her favorite plants is the maranta, better known as the purrayer plant cuz it closes it’s leaves at night to resemble praying hands. When mommy opened up the box from awnty Ellen, she saw the purrettiest purrple leaves pawppin’ out all over the place. ‘Course we had to check it out too. We could smell somethin’ emanatin’ from inside that box that really caught our attention. Sure nuff, awnty Ellen hadn’t furgotten ‘bout us. We got one of those furtastic pieces of silvervine toast each. I’s ‘member when Sammy modeled his fur their posty. That awnty Ellen is so clever. Who would’a thought ‘bout makin’ silvervine toast? 

 

Dezi and Raena shiff the maranta gift from ellen for Mommy A's birthday

 

 

 

Me sure did enjoy that toasty Raena. You’re right ‘bout awnty Ellen. She is so very talented. We luv all her Made with Luv goodies. You slobbered all over your toasty and then tried to steal me’s one. Hmmmpht That wasn’t happenin’. MOL 

 

Raena rolls around on the silvervine toast from Ellen

 

 

 

          You were s’posed to share sissy. ‘Stead, you flopped your floofy big hiney down on your toasty and hid it.

 

Dezi rolls around on silvervine toast from Ellen

Oh divine silvervine, me luvs you.

 

 

 

You had your own Raena, and me didn’t want slobber all over me’s toasty piece. Fank you soooooooooooooo much fur includin’ us awnty Ellen. The silvervine toast was a big hit. 

 

Raena plays with silvervine toast

 

 

 

          Sure nuff. Fanky fank you awnty Ellen. Sissy, can you x’plain a bit ‘bout Memorial day? Peeps keep sayin’ happy memorial day and I’s don’t know what’s so happy ‘bout it. 

 

Dezi plays with silvervine toast from Ellen

 

 

 

Yeah Raena, me doesn’t get the happy pawrt either, me thinks peeps just don’t know what else to say. Memorial day is the day set aside to pay homage to those men, women and anipals that died while serving in the military. Me knows fur sure, that we ‘member them and their families every single day. Ifin not fur them, our country and way of life wouldn’t exist. The freedoms we have, wouldn’t exist. This country is great because of those willing to fight and die to make it so. No where else in this world has the freedoms and rights that the U.S. does. And shame on those who want to tear it down. The next time you complain about the government or somebody saying/posting something you don’t like or agree with, remember, you have the right to do that because someone died to make it so.

 

Raena plays with silvervine toast cat toy

 

 

 

          I’s sure am fanky fankful fur all those who gave their lives so we could live in such a pawsum country sissy. I’s so fanky fankful fur their families who suffered loss, fur the children who lost mothers or fathers to wars on distant shores. Sometimes peeps furget, the soldier serving and fighting should be at the top of our purrayer list, but their family serves as well. So, to all those soldiers who never came home, we salute you and purromiss not to take the freedoms your lives bought us fur granted.

Yep Raena, we are blest to have been born in the U.S. and mommy and me join you in saluting each and every soldier. Thank you fur your service and your sacrifice. And to all those Vets and currently serving, we fank you as well. God Bless America. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives.

          We’re also joinin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. We are so Blest and wanna fanky fank you all fur bein’ our furiends. We luvs you all bunches and bunches.

 

Me couldn’t have meowed it better Raena. C’mon, let’s go give mommy some more birthday cuddles. 

 

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