Blest Sunday: Bouncy Backs, Blowing Leaves & Gratitude

Raena, where are you? It’s time to write our Blest Sunday posty.

 

 Raena sits in amazon box

 

 

          I’s playin’ sissy. Did you see me the other day when I’s played bouncy on mommy’s back?

 

 Dezi lays on cat tree shelf looking inside, while Raena lays atop the cat tree, looking out.

 

 

Yeah Raena, me saw it. Me doesn’t think mommy thought it was very much fun tho’. Whatever made you do that in the furst place? 

 

 Raena lays in house on liberty cat tree

 

 

          Well sissy, ya’ know when mommy sat down on the human potty, she just happened to see somethin’ scurry across the floor. It was the teeniest biggest ginormous hairy spider ever. Let me tell ya’, that sucker was flat movin’ too. Without meowin’ all of mommy’s business, let’s just say, she couldn’t zactly get up and stomp on that teeny ginormous intruder. So, mommy bent over, took off her shoe and stretched her arm out to whack it. I’s quickly assessed the ‘sitch and decided that mommy’s back looked like too much fun not to take advantage of. Besides, mommy already had the spider, and it wasn’t like she was gonna let me play with it anyways. And, bent over and stretched out like that, made her muscles ripple and bounce. So, I’s jumped on mommy’s back and held on fur dear life. What a ride!!! Well till mommy let out a scream that is. I’s don’t know why she hollered like that. I’s almost lost mine’s balance till I’s dug into her neck. Mommy hollered at me and told me the furee ride was over and to get down. Oh well, She quit movin’ ‘round so it wasn’t really fun anymore.

 

 Dezi and Raena lay together on the floor

 

 

Me’s not sure mommy ever thought your claws diggin’ into her back was fun Raena. Me’s guessin’ that’s the reason we got a claw clippin’ last night. 

 

          Ya’ reckon, sissy? I’s hate claw clippin’ time. I’s don’t know why mommy can’t just let our claws grow like they wanna?.

 

Well Raena, me doesn’t like claw clippin’ either, but, mommy says clippin’ is necessary to keep ‘em from growin’ into our paw pads or ketchin’ on everythin’. And me can tell ya’ ketchin’ your claws on the cawrpet ain’t no fun at all. Me guesses mommy’s right. Sometimes ya’ have to do things you don’t like fur your own good. Just don’t let her know me said that. She’d ‘spect me to stop fightin’ at claw clippin’ time. 

 

 Leaf Blower

 

Leaves being blown from porch

Leaves being blow off porch by mommy A

 

 

 

          That may be true sissy, but I’s still don’t like it. Anyways, did you see what happened the day after mommy blew all the leaves off the purrch? 

 

Clean porch after blowing all leaves off

Almost all the leaves are gone after mommy’s leaf blowing adventure

Oh Raena, mommy was so furustrated. There’ she’d dragged the leaf blower out and spent all that time blowin’ leaves everywhere but our purrch. And, the next meownin’, Mr. Whirrly Wind came thru and blew twice as many as befur back onto the purrch.

 

 

Leaves piled up on porch

The leaves are back

 

 

          Yep sissy, the mailman came to the door to drop off a package; and when mommy opened the door, leaves blew in all over the place. It was so windy, mommy couldn’t even get the leaves back outside. I’s will say, I’s just luvs the leaf blower. Mommy wields that thing better than any ole Mother Nature wind storm. 

 

Gift of Primal Freeze Dried Chicken, Rabbit and Duck sent by Vonda

 

 

Yeah Raena, mommy is getting’ better at it. You should’a seen her the furst few times. Me thinks she made more of a mess than we had befur. Least now, she can get ‘er done without bein’ covered in dirt and mud when she finishes. 

 

 Dezi and Raena check out the Primal Freeze Dried cat food sent by Vonda

 

 

          What did you think of the surpurrise we got sissy? 

 

Dezi sniffs the bag of Primal freeze dried rabbit sent by VondaMmmmmmmmmmm Rabbit, me’s favorite.

 

 

The one from awnty Vonda? Me luvved it. We can never have too many bags of noms, that’s fur sure. She was so sweet to send ‘em to us. Hopefully, it means we won’t ever run outta food again. She even sent an extra bag of the Primal Duck fur me’s Gotchaday. Fank you sooooooooooooooo much awnty Vonda. We really purreciate ya’ and the noms.

 

 Raena sniffs the Primal Freeze dried Rabbit food while Dezi looks on, sent by Vonda

Mmmmmmmmmmmm I’s smell Rabbit.

 

 

 

          Sure ‘nuff sissy. Fanky fank ya’ awnty Vonda. I’s saw a giant bag of our favorite, Primal freeze dried Rabbit. We’re also very fanky fankful to awnty Donna. She sent mommy green papers to register our car. I’s don’t know why we have to register it, and mommy gets so angry that the State charges so much, but, we’re grateful to be legal again fur another year.

 

 Dezi's face close up, selfie

 

 

Yeah Raena, mommy says you’d think we’d have the bestest roads in da U.S. with what they charge. But alas, Oklahoma roads are pawful. Anyways, we are so very blest to have furiends who luv us and help us out when they can. We are blest to have a luvvin’ mommy, a roof over our heads, a bed to sleep in and toys galore. We are blest to be a pawrt of a community of cat luvvers who care ‘bout each other and suppurrt each other. We are so grateful fur all our furiends. We can’t ‘magine a life without all of you. We are Blest!!! And as always, we wanna remind you to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives.

          We also wanna link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. We do luvs posin’ fur fotos. (Raena sees something outside and runs to the cat tree to look further) Did you see that sissy? C’mon, let’s go see what it is.

Blest Sunday: God Bless Our Veteran’s

MeOW Raena, where are you? It’s time fur our Blest Sunday posty.

          I’s comin’ sissy. I’s just had to help mommy with one last thing fur our posty today. 

 

 Dezi and Raena in the flame or the Statue of Liberty

 

 

As always, we’re a day late and a dollar short, but that’s okay. Mommy says, every day is the purrfect day to say a meowsy big Fank you to all those who serve and have served our Country, and to their furmilies. We all want Peace. We purray fur Peace. But, the truth is, Peace only comes after war. And to those brave men and women, anipals and their furmilies who sacrifice(d) so much to ensure our safety and our Freedoms, we salute you. The very Freedoms they fight to purrtect are offen withheld from them.

 

 Raena in an animated flag veteran's day frame

 

 

 

          That’s so right sissy. Some of our soldiers are away in lands where they’re not allowed to openly purratice their Christian faith, or read a Bible, or purray out loud. Women have to cover up from head to toe and fear bein’ raped or worse. Not that it’s any better fur the men. Yet, these soldiers willingly put their lives on the line each and every day so that you and we can sleep safely in our beds at night. So that we can choose to worship or not. So that we can speak our minds and peacefully debate the issues impacting our Country. Those rights are sacred, God given, and ensured by our fore fathers in the Constitution of the USA. Purrlease, don’t let all the blood that was shed, all the lives that were lost or furever changed, be fur nuffin’. Make your voice and theirs be heard. 

 

Dezi in an animated frame with an eagle and flag thanking the veteran's

That’s great Raena. Fur those of us here at home, we can fight to keep our Freedoms by voting and letting our leaders know what we want. We live in the greatest Country in the world and are so Blest to have so many brave men and women doin’ what they can to keep us great. As far as we’re concerned, your sacrifice and service is/was not in vain. We purray daily, Lord, bless our soldiers and keep them safe and bring them home.

 

 3 cats meowing thank you

 

          We are Blest, sissy. We’re not sure why the Happy exists, so we’ll just say, Fanky fank you to all the Veteran’s and their furmilies. We send loud rumblin’ purrs to all of you. And fanky fank you to all our furiends. We don’t always agree, but we always come together to luvs and suppurt each other. 

 

Thank You emoji

We’re joinin’ the Kitties Blue fur Sunday selfies with a couple of Veteran’s Day plandids.

Blest Sunday: Blessings Love and Peace

MeOW Raena, c’mon, it’s time to write our Blest Sunday posty. You know we have lots of blessings to meow ‘bout this week. 

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

 

 

          I’s sure do, sissy. I’s started off this past week not feelin’ so good. I’s sure was a hungry kitty girl, but I’s just couldn’t keep any of mine’s foods down. That’s a purretty miserable place to be. ‘Specially when I’s already needed to gain a few pounds. I’s quickly lost those 2 pounds I’s had gained and then some. Mommy’s eyes were so filled with tears, she could barely see. But, fanky fankfully, our furiends started purrayin’ and God showed up and calmed mine’s tummy. I’s ate 3 helpings last night and asked fur a few treats. Mommy’s eyes were still filled with tears, but, she said those ones were the joybell tears. I’s’ll never unnerstand the difference t’ween human tears; but, I’s really glad that mommy’s happy now. I’s still have a tad of the wheezy sneezies, but it seems I’s back to eatin’ like a champ again.

That you are Raena, that you are. Me’s glad you’re feelin’ better too. Trust me, you’ll never figger out those human tear things, so don’t even try. We don’t know why you had such a bad tummy upset Raena, but mommy thinks those wheezy sneezies just might be allergies. She’s wonderin’ ifin that might be the purroblem with your eyes too. They got all better after you got those eye drops, till the last couple of days durin’ your sicks.

 

 Raena lays inside tent track toy

 

 

 

          I’s thinkin’ mommy might be right, sissy. I’s heard mommy sayin’ that we might have to take a trip to the V E T as soon as we can. And, fanky fanks to uncle Pete, Timmy and furmily fur sendin’ some green papers to help with mine’s medical, that day might be sooner than later. Mommy’s just tryin’ to decide ifin she wants to put those green papers towards our bill so we can pay it off faster, or just see a new V E T. Decisions, decisions. I’s sure glad we don’t have to worry ‘bout those kinds of things sissy.

Me too Raena. We’ve got enuff to think ‘bout what with where to sleep, nap and what toy to play with. Anyways, as most everypawdy knows, we don’t blog on Caturdays anymore. And cuz of that, we missed the big Blog Fur Peace day. But, truth is, we think ‘bout and purray fur peace every day. We just don’t unnerstand why peeps would wanna kill each other over somethin’ as small as a disagreement. Ifin everypawdy thought the same way, what kind’a world would this be? Obviously, we luv God and believe He’s the one and only true God. And, we wish everypawdy believed it too. After all, we want all our furiends to be saved from their sins and spend eternity with us in heaven. But, we know that just isn’t gonna happen. None the less, we respect your right to believe somethin’ different without hatin’ ya’ and fur sure without killin’ ya’.

 

 Raena lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

     True sissy. We luvs all our furiends so much and don’t want anythin’ bad to happen to any of you. We purray that God would bless each of you and your families. And, that He would send healing to those that are sick, comfurt to those in turmoil and purrvision to all. We purray fur peace on earth and good will to all. Fanky fank ya’ fur bein’ our furiends and luvvin’ us even when we disagree. Diversity makes fur innerestin’ conversations and causes us all to strive to be better than we are.

 

Dezi lays on floor

Sometimes you can be really smart Raena. We really do ‘purreciate all of you fur your differences and the things we have in common. We fank you all fur your purrayers and suppurrt and ask that you continue to keep Raena in your purrayers. We wouldn’t be the least offended ifin ya’ said one fur mommy and me too. As always, we wanna remind you to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives.

Chatting Cats: Prayers and Thank Yous

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Ifin ya’ follow us on that facebook thingy then you already know, I’s been a little unner the weather lately. I’s a hungry girl to be sure, I’s just havin’ a little trouble keepin’ mine’s noms in mine’s tummy where they belong. Mommy fixes mine’s plate, I’s eat and then a few minutes later I’s horkin’ that stuff all over the place. Actually, mommy says I’s a really good girl cuz I’s only throw up a little on the tile wood floor. I’s save the biggest blah fur the litterbox. Altho’ it doesn’t seem to matter where I make mine’s depawsits, mommy still cries. Yesfurday I’s suddenly got the wheezy sneezies right alongside the horkin’. I’s really ‘purreciate all of ya’ fur sendin’ up some purrayers fur me. Since I’s just went to the V E T fur mine’s yearly visit, our credit is maxed out. I’s not know what that pawrt means, but the gist of it is that we can’t go see the doctor till mommy pays it off. So, purrayers it is. God’s better than that ole V E T anyways.

 

Raena sleeps on food mat under desk

 

 

          You’re right ‘bout that Raena, God’s better at everythin’. And, me and mommy are purrayin’ hard. Me heard mommy sayin’, she hoped it was just a stubborn ole hairball, and that that hairball paste she forced down you would help. Me doesn’t know why you don’t like the malty (hairball paste)?. It tastes so yummy.

 

 Dezi licks butter/baby food spoon with medicine

Me luvs a good butter spoon (medicine).

 

 

It’s medicine, sissy?. We’re not s’posed to like medicine. Don’t you read how our furiends act when it’s medicine time? We make things way to easy fur mommy. I’s had to object to somethin’ just to keep her on her toes. 

 

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

 

 

 

          Just cuz everypawdy else does it doesn’t mean we’re s’posed too Raena. We’re s’posed to be good examples and happily take our medicine. Besides, malty ain’t medicine, it’s a nommy treat. Anyways, Me’s wanted to fank everypawdy fur the birthday wishes. Me’s birthday month has started off with a bang. Me got lots of extra luvvin’, a relaxin’ groomin’ session and some treats from the Chewy Goody Box and Birthday box. What more could a girly ask fur? The bestest gift me ever got is a luvvin’ home with mommy. Me’s even grateful fur you. 

 

Fanky fank ya’ sissy. I’s grateful fur you and mommy too. 

 

 Cute kitty birthday card from Andy and family

Blest Sunday: National Cat Day

MeOW Raena? Why is it that you think you need to take up the whole bed?

 

 Dezi lays atop the liberty cat tree while Raena stands sniffing at the shelf

 

 

 

          Meeee? What ‘bout you? Stretchin’ out and givin’ me the old whacky paw while I’s tryin’ to sleep?!! 

 

Sleep? You scratched me while givin’ mommy a massage.

 

          Well sissy, ifin you weren’t takin’ up the whole bed, you wouldn’t have gotten scratched. 

 

 Dezi looks at Raena from atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

That doesn’t even make any sense Raena. Have you been on the nip already this meownin’? 

 

     Girls, Be Nice. I need both of you next to me when I sleep. You know I can’t sleep without ya’. Now apologize and let’s get to your Blest Sunday posty. 

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

 

Sorry mommy. Sorry Raena. Mommy’s right, we need to get to our Blest Sunday post. We’re blest to have a bed to lay on and stretch out on. We’re blest to have a furever home full of luv. We’re blest to have furiends and family that luv and suppurrt us.

 

 Dezi and Raena laying on the bed

 

 

          I’s sorry too, sissy. We are very Blest. Hey, did you see mommy’s calendar? It says today is National Cat Day. I’s thought every day was Cat Day, so I’s pawed in to google and found out that National Cat Day started in 2005 to bring awareness to all the homeless kitties in the world. And, of course, to celebrate the luvs of a cat.

 

 Dezi lays on the brown cat tree in front of the window

 

 

 

That’s true Raena. Me was just meowin’ ‘bout how Blest we are. There are thousands upon thousands of kitties who will never know the luv of a human or the warmth of their very own bed. Some will never even know the feelin’ of a full tummy. It makes us so sad to think ‘bout those kitties less furtunate than us. As most peeps know, we’re a purretty poor family when it comes to the green papers. But, we are teemin’ with luv. Ya’ know, me’s birthday is Wednesday. 7 years ago me was a sickly kitty who purrobably would have died ifin not fur mommy. We wish every kitty could have a luvvin’ furever home. There’s so much that can be done to help these kitties. Even ifin ya’ don’t have green papers. 

 

 Raena lays in house on liberty cat tree

Even mommy can take a decent foto every once in a while. MOL

 

 

 

          Sure ‘nuff sissy. You can volunteer at a shelter or rescue, donate old towels, sheets, toys, cleanin’ supplies, food and so much more. Maybe, you’re good with the camera. You don’t have to be a purrfessional, just willin’ to donate a little time to take a few fotos of kitties waitin’ in shelters to be posted online. A good foto is worth a thousand words. And, it just might be the thing that helps get that kitty adopted. Or maybe ya’ got some energy to burn and can spend some time just playing with and socializin’ some kitties. A confident kitty stands a far better chance of getting’ adopted than one who cowers in their pawtty box.

Don’t furget those of us in social media Raena. We can all share, share and share some more. Ya’ never know who might see that post. Me knows mommy plans to spend some extra time with us today, just like she does every day. She says we celebrate cat day every day and she wouldn’t change it fur the world.

 

          Blest kitties are we, sissy. I’s think you have a fanky fank ya’ to meow out too sissy. 

 

Me sure does, Raena. Me wants to fank awnty Vonda fur sendin’ some green papers fur me’s birthday. Mommy says we need food and litter most, so she’s gonna put those green papers with hers to get us some. Awnty Vonda said that was fine, so long as mommy got us some special somethin’ with some of those green papers. So, mommy got us a new throw fur the bed. It’s soft and cozy warm. Fank you very much. And fank you all fur bein’ our furiends. Don’t furget to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your life.
