MeOW What a wonderful week of Blessings and Fankfulness. (Dezi walks back and forth down the hall meowing, stopping occasionally to squat, wiggle and look around before starting up again. She hears the wind blowing through the wind chimes and the leaves rustling outside and jumps on the Liberty cat tree to take a look.) RaenaBelle, hasn’t this been a pawsum week?
Yep sissy, it really has. (The wind blows up a funnel cloud of leaves and Raena crouches on the perch in front of the door watching intently as if she could reach out and catch one.) We’re so Blest; even mommy’s startin’ to feel a bit better. She said fanky fanks to our massages and a box of imitrex her migraine’s let up a lot. At least enuff so she can think again. I’s told her we had plans to make and things to get done befur Christmas. I’s so ready fur Christmas to be here, aren’t you?
Yeah Raena, me can’t hardly wait. But befur we move on we need to ‘pawlogize fur not announcin’ the winners of our mask contest at me’s Carnival pawrty. What with the innernet bein’ out, mommy’s sick and the holidays, we got way behind. Our winners were Pipo and Dalton. As purromissed, you’ll be gettin’ a little sumpin’ sumpin’; but, all our plans went astray and it ain’t here yet. So, we’ll send it on when we get it, K? Me was so happy to see so many of our furiends purrticipate. The bloggin’ community, cats and their peeps in purrticular are just the bestest ever.
You got that right sissy. Meowin’ of furiends, we need to send out a fanky fank you to awnty Cindy and her brofur uncle Marshall and all the kitties. Not only did they send us that tasty fanky Fanksgivin’ dinner along with a goody box, but they also sent us a case of shelf stable milk and some green papers. Mommy says the car tags are due, so it’s a really big help.
And me wants to fank awnty Vonda fur sendin’ us some green papers too Raena. Mommy said me has a late Birthday/Gotchaday gift comin’.
Really sissy? Are you gonna share?
Is me gonna share? Does me have a choice? Anyways, mommy said there’d be purrlenty. All me can meow is she better be right. You try to hog everythin’.
Me? Nuh uh, that’s not me, that’s you. You’re the one who always throws a hissy fit when I’s try to play bunny kick the nip nanner with you.
That’s cuz you wanna steal me’s nip nanner ‘stead of playin’ with your own Raena. There’s a reason mommy insists on two of everythin’; so we each can have our own.
Then why don’t you play with the other one sissy?
It doesn’t matter which one me plays with Raena, that’s the one you’re gonna want. (Raena thinks for a minute and then goes back to watching the leaves fly around outside while Dezi grins at having left Raena meowless.) Cat got your tongue? MOL
Huh? What does that even mean sissy? I’s a cat, so of course I’s got mine’s tongue. Wanna see? (Raena sticks her tongue out at Dezi)
Me’s gonna tell mommy you’re stickin’ your tongue out and bein’ mean Raena.
I’s not bein’ mean sissy, I’s just showin’ ya’ that I’s got mine’s tongue. You’re the one that asked ‘bout it?.
Oh sure, try to blame me fur your meanness. (Dezi sticks her tongue out at Raena.)
I’s not…sissy…? C’mon sissy, let’s not fight. It’s Blest Sunday, we’re s’posed to be countin’ our Blessings, not arguin’.
You’re right Raena. We are Blest to have more than one nip nanner. We’re Blest in so many ways. 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. And we wanna say a meowsy big Fank you fur bein’ Blessings in ours.
Let’s take a quick selfie and link up with the Kittie Blue fur Sunday Selfies, sissy. And I’s’ll let ya’ play with both nip nanners all by yourself today.
(Dezi meows quietly) Sure you will…but fur how long? Sure Raena, fanks.
Till the next time………………………………………………………Be Blest!!!

RaenaBelle, c’mon, it’s time fur Blest Sunday.
I’s comin’ sissy, I’s just gonna have one more bite of turkey tom lurkey. Sorry Trout Towne Tabbies, but we do luvs a bite of furesh cooked turkey tom lurkey.
That we do Raena. But, we’ve got some freeze dried salmon bits just in case any of our fish luvvin’ furiends happen to paw on over. We sure did enjoy us a nice meal on Fanksgivin’, didn’t we Raena?
Sure ‘nuff sissy. Fanky fanks to awnty Cindy and angel Maggie Meme, awnty Vonda and awnty Petal fur the green papers. We went to the store and dug through the bin till mommy found a nice lookin’ little breast fur the three of us. She got some more of those big ole bakin’ taters too, and some bread and dinner rolls. You know how much mommy luvs her bread.
Yep, and a teeny milk to go with the noodles and the rest of that powdered cheese fur cheater mac and cheese. Mommy says the rest of the green papers will go towards a V-E-T visit fur your eyes. We gotta figger out why they won’t clear up lessen you’re on the steroids and antibiotics. And, did ya’ hear? Timmy, uncle Pete and the furmily sent me some green papers fur me’s Gotchaday. Fank ya’ll bunches. Me’s thinkin’ maybe we can sneak on the catputer tomorrow with all the other crazy cyber Monday shoppers. Who knows what we’ll find?.
Maybe we can even spare a little to get mommy a donut. I’s not know what a cravin’ is, but she’s been yowlin’ ‘bout donuts fur days now. I’s thinkin’ that’s Bear Kat Cat’s fault. MOL
We’ll see Raena. Ya’ know, we’ve been meowin’ ‘bout this and that today, and while we’re sure fankful fur our Fanksgivin’ blessings, we should really meow what we’re most fankful fur.
I’s so fanky fankful fur mine’s mommy and mine’s home and mine’s
sissy and awwwwwww-ll of you.
That’s easy sissy. We’re most fanky fankful fur mommy and our furever home. We’re fanky fankful fur full bellies, a warm place to lay our heads and the most pawsum furiends in the universe. Ya’ know, we’re so blest to have what we do. There are so many kitties and even peeps out there that be less furtunate than us. Mommy ‘members a time when she wondered where she and Shad would sleep or when she might get to eat, and says it’s no fun at all. And, with the weather getting’ colder, we so worry ‘bout those livin’ outside.
This is the life.
Yeah Raena, we don’t like to think ‘bout any kitty livin’ outside at any time of the year, but we really worry at this time of year ‘specially. Seriously, ifin ya’ have any strays or ferals livin’ in your neck of the woods, purrlease do what ya’ can to help ‘em out. There’s lots of infurmation on da innernets ‘bout makin’ cheap shelters and surely ya’ can spare a few bites fur the less furtunate. The Bible says, ya’ never know when ya’ might be entertainin’ angels unaware. Yeah, me parameowed it. Now we’ll be honest and tell ya’ we don’t know ifin that might be refurrin’ to kitties, but hey, we don’t know it ain’t. What we can tell ya’, is that a little kindness goes a long way.
Yep, life is gooooooood.
That’s so true sissy. We’ll be lookin’ out fur any kitties that happen to come our way. And, we’ll be purrayin’ fur all of you and all those we don’t know who might not be as blest as we are. We luv you all so much and are so grateful to have you in our lives. Each of you are a blessing we count every day.
They are and we do, Raena. 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’d also like to remind ya’ that we won’t be postin’ tomorrow. The innernets are already startin’ to act all wonky and slow, so we’ll be unplugged as they say, enjoyin’ some of those Fanksgivin’ left overs.
Don’t furget sissy, we’re also linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies.
Ya’ just did Raena.
Till the next time……………………………..Be Blest!!!

Well here we are, sayin’ good bye to Fanksgivin’ and meowllo to da beginnin’ of da end of da year and mes favorite holiday, Christmas. Me so luvs da blinkin, flashin’ lights on da tree, and da sittin’ in mommys lap as she tells us da story of baby Jesus and why He came to earth. Me luvs seein’ da goodness of humankind, dat fur some only shows itself at this time of year. Since ‘bein’ on da innernet, me learned ‘bout a Santa Paws and purresents. Sis Lexi and me were so blest to have received so many amazin’ gifts from such pawsum furiends, awnties and uncles. Me hopes sissy Raena will also be treated with such, but ifin not, we will still be blest.
Dat turkey was soooooooooo good.
Dat’s right, it’s Blest Sunday, our favorite posty of da week. As we end out one week and enter another, we do so with full bellies fur all. We had a pawsum Fanksgivin’. We ate so much turkey tom lurkey, we thought we all might burst. Mommy made roasted taters, mac and cheese and dinner rolls. She had bought a pie crust and a can of evaporated milk to make a pie, but furgot we didn’t have any eggs. Da last eggs we got were furesh and mommy gave them to Raena and me. There was only one left and she needed at least 6. So, no pie, but we had purrlenty. We’ve had sammiches everyday since. Okay, maybe mommy’s had those sammiches, but Raena and me have had turkey too.
Dat turkey lurkey was pawtastic sissy. I’s think we need a
little rest now, don’t you?
There’s a lady what lives out here dat rarely has anypawdy visit her. When mommy furst moved in here one of da wild bobcats used to furequent da ‘pawrtments lookin’ fur a hand out. Mommy was da furst purrson ever to live here with kitty cats. Anyways, this little old lady can’t see so good and used to tell mommy dat her kitties had gotten out and she had fed them or gave them milk. Well, it wasn’t mommys kitties she was feedin’ but da ole bobcat. Anyways, mommy saw dat she was home and nopawdy came to visit her, so we shared some of our turkey lurkey with her. Mommy took her over some of da sides too. Like us, she doesn’t make much money and can’t afford a holiday feast either, so she was very grateful fur da plate mommy took her. It has always bothered mommy dat when some peeps got old, their furmily kinda abandoned them and they really didn’t have anypawdy. Da truth is, dat mommy realized da other day, dat she’s now dat purrson. Peeps purrobably think dat ‘bout her now. But dat’s okay, mommy said she has us and all our wonderful furiends from ‘round da world.
Mommy totally furgot to take fotos of our feast. Fank catness she ‘membered to take some of us in da aftermath. MOL Ifin we thought tom smelled good when he arrived, let me tell ya’, he smelled even better when mommy warmed him up. Sis Raena sat right in front of da oven yowlin’ da whole time. Reckon it paid off, cuz guess who got da furst bite? Yep, Raena got her furst taste ever of a yummy turkey tom lurkey; and she luvved it.
Oh sissy, you were sooooooooooo right. Dat turkey lurkey tasted sooooooooooooooo good. I’s didn’t wanna stop eatin’. Mommys taters wasn’t bad either, but I’s glad we got more turkey than taters.
I’s ate so much I’s conked plumb out.
Me too Raena, me too. We can never say fank you enuff to our furiends, awnties and uncles who sent us a feast fit fur queens. Fur us, each day is Fanksgivin’. We are so fankful fur da luv, support and furiendship of all of you. Our hearts are offen overwhelmed by da kindness and generosity of all of you. We are so blest and honored to be a pawrt of such an amazin’ community of animal luvvers. We can say dat most of our human furiends would give da shirt off their backs to help a kitty/anipal in need. And most like us, would share their last meal with one who didn’t have any. With all da turmoil in da world, it’s offen easy to furget da blessings right in front of us. There are angels in this world, and offen they’re covered in fur. Fank you all fur bein’ who you are.
Me ate so much me conked out too.
We’ll keep it short today. It’s nasty, cold and stormy out so we’ll be visitin’ ‘tween storms. we want to remind ya’ to take a minute today and every day to give fanks fur da blessings in your life. And we’re joinin’ da Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies.
Till da next time…………………………………………Be Blest!!!
