          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. 

 

Groceries for Thanksgiving dinnerFank you fur this food. We’re enjoyin’ every last bite.

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 Raena sleeps while laying on cat tree

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.

 

 Dezi lays in lap getting love close up

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.

 

Raena lays in mommy's lap and gets loving

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. 

 

 Kitten and rose animated for you emoji

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. 

 

 Animated thank you rose

 

          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!!!

Blest Sunday The Generosity of Friends

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.

 Dezi licks her lips

 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.

 Dezi and Raena laying on the Liberty cat tee

 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.

 Dezi trying to nap on the Liberty cat tree

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.

 Raena's selfie

       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.

 Raena concked out atop the Liberty cat tree

 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.

Blessings and Hope: Tis the Season

Meowllo everypawdy, me hopes you are doing well. Furst me wants to say, a meowsy big Fank you to everypawdy who wished me a Happy Gotchaday. Even tho’ it stormed all day long yesfurday, and we couldn’t get on da catputer fur very long, it was a pawsum day. 7 years ago, mommy and sis Lexi were grievin’ da loss of Ransom when she got a call ‘bout a litter of Ragdoll kitties dat had been rescued. Of course mommy couldn’t resist kitties in need and came to see us. Da minute mes little eyes saw her and mes nose got a whiff of her sweet spirit, me knew she was gonna be mes furever mommy. There was no way she could say no, when me dragged mes worm ridden half dead body into her lap and looked into her eyes and purred. She looked back at me with tear filled eyes and said, “You’re my destiny.” Since dat day, we’ve not been apawrt. And mommy even named me Deztinee (she luvs to be different). Me is fankful fur awnty Vonda and her wonderful kitties fur sendin’ me some treats to share with sis Raena. Me is sooooooooooo blest.

 Dezi eats her freeze dried chicken breast treats for her birthday

 Yes, me shared with Raena. Me’s favorite freeze dried chicken breasts.

 

And guess what else happened yesfurday? Since it was stormin’ and so dark outside, we didn’t even see da UPS man walk up da walk to our ‘pawrtment. So when we heard da knock on da door, we were all quite surprised. Mommy brought da bestest smelling box in da house and then started bawlin’ like a baby. She was cryin’ so hard, she couldn’t even read da gift message under da pull tab. Once she furinally got da box open, we saw da biggest turkey tom lurkey dat was respawnsible fur dat pawsum smell emanating from said box. Dat’s right, A delishus smoked turkey tom lurkey was layin’ right there in dat box. Mommy furinally stopped cryin’ long enuff to see da message under dat pull tab. Fank you soooooooooooooo much Snoops, Kommando Kitty and awnty Cathy. We will now be havin’ a turkey tom lurkey feast fur Fanksgiving tomorrow and a turkey tom lurkey feast fur Christmas fanks to da other pawsum turkey we received last week. We never ‘spected to be so blest and can’t truly express out gratitude. Everypawdy in our house will have full bellies this holiday season. And fur dat, da human language just doesn’t have da words to express how truly grateful we are. Luvving furiends, a luvving home and full bellies, we are so blest.

We weren’t always so blest tho’. And in da midst of our blessings, we’re thinkin’ ‘bout those who are less furtunate than us; and sendin’ our purrayers. We don’t always know who those peeps and anipals might be, but we can purray God sends someone across their path to help them. And speakin’ of those anipals we wanna tell ya’ a little story today.

 Raena sniffing the turkey sent by Snoops, Kommando Mitty and Cathy

 Can I’s have a bite right now mommy?

 

 

 

 

       Are you gonna tell everypawdy ‘bout Hope sissy?  

 

 

Yep Raena, me is. When we got our catputer we signed up fur Facebook. Dat was da thing to do back then. And then we discovered kitty pages. OMC  There’s a whole world of kitties out there on da innernet. Among those kitties was an adorable little black kitty named Blind Pepe, who had a brofur named Roo. We read Pepe’s story, and fell in luv. Pepe wasn’t born blind, and not bein’ able to see, wasn’t da only purroblem he had. See, some very mean pursson or peeps had tortured Pepe and then left him to die. His brofur Roo had been born with “defective” front arms. Of course these two handsum mancats weren’t actual littermates, but they became brofurs cuz of da amazin’ woman who took them in and nursed them to health and gave them a luvving furever home. We just couldn’t understand how peeps could be so…so…so horrific. Fank catness fur awnty Nora, who stepped in and did everythin’ she could fur these boys. But Pepe and Roo aren’t da only kitties awnty Nora has taken in and saved. She has over 40 kitties, most with major health issues, and a lot who be little black panfurs. Like Tootsie, not a black kitty, but one who has Feline Leukemia and FIV and needs to have some teeth pulled. We all know what woulda happened to her in a shelter.

       And Hope sissy? What ‘bout Hope?

Me’s getting’ to her Raena.

So, anyways, when a young girl and older woman appeared on awnty Nora’s door step last week with da broken, tortured body of a kitten they found but saying they couldn’t afford to help her; awnty Nora once again came to da rescue. Da poor baby had been kicked in da face. Unlike me, when me looked into mommys eyes and she looked into mines, poor Hope couldn’t. Dat’s right, her eyes were a mess, one no doubt beyond saving. After a trip to da VET, Hope was determined to be ‘bout 9 weeks old. What kind of purrson does this to a helpless kitty??? Why would someone do this??? Our heats just broke looking at sweet little Hope, clinging to life and relying on da kindness of a species who had tortured her and no doubt left her fur dead. This sweet little Tortie Hope, couldn’t know it right then, but like me, she had just hit da jackpot.

Awnty Nora wouldn’t abandon her, and would do whatever it takes to make her better. Hope will know luv and kindness. She’ll know a full belly and soft place to sleep. She’ll never have to fear being hurt, tortured or abused ever again!!! But as many of you know, one sick kitty can drain a bank account quickly. Even knowing this, awnty Nora wouldn’t, couldn’t say no. But with many kitties who have special needs, awnty Nora could really use some help payin’ da VET bills fur Hope. Hope is havin’ surgery to remove her eye on December da 9th at da Pond Creek Vet. We know it’s da holidays. We know money is tight. We know there are lots of kitties in need. But we’re askin’ just da same. We know awnty Nora and we know Hope is now safe and luvved.

 

 

Unfurtunately, luv doesn’t pay da bills and they’re gonna need ‘bout $2,000.00. So ifin you can spare anything, even just a dollar, purrlease help Hope. You can donate directly to da VET by calling (580)532-4900 and giving under da name: Jack or Nora Haugh. You can donate free (no fees if you click to give to friends or family) by giving directly to awnty Nora’s paypal at: ellenorahaugh@yahoo.com dat’s ellenorahaugh(at)yahoo(dot)com, or by clicking here fur da GoFundMe fundraiser. Remember, no gift is too small. And purrlease, purray and share. As you all know, we don’t do things like this very offen, but we just can’t let Hope down. Tis da season after all. And as you all know, we don’t have money ourselves. But we have been so blest, dat me shared me’s Gotchaday gift with Hope. It’s da least we could do considerin’ da blessings we have received.

 

       Oh sissy, I’s sure is purrayin’ dat Hope gets da help she needs. I’s know awnty Nora’s gonna make sure she’s a happy kitty and has a great life from here on out.

 

 Raena sniffing Thanksgiving turkey

Me too Raena, me too. We’re gonna wrap it up now, and get ready fur Fanksgivin’. We have so much to be fankful fur. Tune in Blest sunday to see how our feast went. We’re purrayin’ fur safe travels and many blessings fur all of our furiends. And fur all those less furtunate than us, come on by, we’ll share. Kidding aside, we purray fur those peeps and anipals every day just as we purray fur our furiends. See ya’ after T-Day.

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