MeOW (Dezi follows mommy and Raena mumbling to herself) Kittens, Me sure wishes the weather would make up it’s mind. One minute it’s cold and the next we’re pantin’. Me thinks me may have gotten mommy’s “pussonal summer disease” (hot flashes). Ifin only me could roll up me’s furs like she does her pants legs. Hmmmpht And what’s up with the clocks? Mommy keeps goin’ from room to room tryin’ to figger out why some say one thing and others say another.
Sissy, who are you meowin’ too? And what’s wrong? Don’t you know it’s Blest Sunday? I’s can’t wait to count our Blessings today.
Who can count anythin’ over that squeaky fan? It’s on me’s last nerve!!!
Aaaaaw Sissy, c’mon, snap out of it. You luvs Blest Sunday’s; and you fur sure know we’re Blest. Mommy’s gonna try to put some more oil on the fan, so hopefully it’ll quit squealin’ soon. And I’s asked the crazy lady in the box (Alexa dot) ‘bout the clocks and learned that we were s’posed to turn our clocks back last night, so that’s why some of ‘em are wrong. As fur mommy’s purrsonal summer’s, I’s don’t think those are contagious. Besides, it’s your birthday/gotchaday month; that’s like the biggest Blessing we kitties can ever have.
Yeah, you’re right Raena. And, peace reigns in our home once again. Now that’s always a Blessing. Ya’ know, me also wanted to meow Fank you to awnty Anonymous and awnty Vonda fur sendin’ me some green papers fur me’s birthday. Me knows how ‘purrtant it was fur you to have your surgery, but me really does ‘purreciate that they wanted me to have somethin’ special. Me’s birthday kind’a got lost in the fray, but they helped to make me feel ‘purrtant too. Me even got birthday cards from Pipo and Dalton and Valentine.
You’re always special sissy. That’s why we’re throwin’ you a pawsum pawrty on the 14th. Anyways, I’s got some Blessings I’s wanna give fanky fanks fur too. Fanky fank you awnty Anonymous, awnty Jeanne, awnty Cindy, awnty Sandee, awnty Juliea and Patzy, awnty Claire, Zorro and Pixie, awnty Theresa, awnty Kerry and Valentine, awnty Susan M, awnty Susan C, awnty Susan T, awnty Ava, awnty Christine, awnty Vonda and our furiends at the Kitty Klub fur helpin’ me to have mine’s surgery. And fanky fanks to all of you fur the luvs, well wishes and purrayers. Mommy says I’s on the road to recovery and gettin’ better and better every day. Altho’ mine’s eyes still hurt a little, they’re hurtin’ in a whole new place. But, I’s can see and blink like never befur. It’s amazin’.
That’s pawsum Raena. Me’s glad you’re feelin’ better. And me can’t wait fur me’s pawrty. It’s gonna be so much fun. Me was just thinkin’ ‘bout how Blest we are to be a pawrt of this wonderful world of pet bloggers. What an amazing life we have. You know, besides bein’ me’s birthday and gotchaday month, it’s also Fankgivin’ month here in the U.S.. Me’s very fankful we were furtunate enuff to be born in this great Country called America.
scabby and I’s missin’ whiskers. Those whiskers by the
way ain’t missin’, doctor stabby and grabby stole ’em.
Ain’t that the truth sissy. We are Blest with a capital B. Ya’ know sissy, I’s luvs Blest Sundays as much as you do. I’s also like that we get to post our selfies. Altho’ we don’t actually take our own fotos, mommy says she luvs a good close up that shows off our beauty. So, each week we link up with the Kitties Blue fur the Sunday Selfie blog hop.
Yeah Raena, mommy does luv a good close up. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you 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.
Till the next time………………………………………………………Be Blest!!!

MeOW (Dezi paces through the house meowing, only pausing to hiss or growl.) Raena? Oh Raena? RaenaBelle, where are you?!! (Dezi continues to meow, hiss and growl as she checks all the typical hiding spots. She walks into the kitchen where mommy A’s fixing breakfast.) Mommy, where’s Raena? Why didn’t she come back home with you yesfurday?
(Raena emerges from the middle of the scratcher at the edge of the kitchen and walks up to Dezi and raises her paw.) I’s right here sissy. Why…
(Dezi turns and sniffs the air around Raena) Oh me cats Raena, where have you been? Me’s been lookin’ everywhere fur you. You won’t believe what mommy did yesfurday. She brought this, this Thing home. (Dezi shudders) You won’t believe the stench. It smelled and looked just pawful. No matter how many times me hissed and growled at it, it just kept comin’ ‘round. Me furinally lost it at dinner time, only to find it in your spot on the bed. Me couldn’t believe mommy would let it take your spot. Mommy’s always purromissed she’d never leave us, so me doesn’t unnerstand why she’d let some innerloper sleep in your spot? Don’t you worry tho’, me gave that innerloper a piece of me’s mind. Me hissed and growled an screamed at it. Me let it know just how unwelcome it was. It must’ve got the message, cuz me can’t seem to find it anywhere this meownin’.
I’s still a little woozy.
Sissy, that wasn’t no innerloper. That was me you were hissin’ and growlin’ at. I’s didn’t feel so good and all I’s wanted was a little luvvin’ from mine’s big sissy; but all you wanted to do was stay away from me. I’s just didn’t unnerstand it at all.
That was you? Nah, no way.
Yep sissy, it was me. ‘Member, I’s had to have surgery yesfurday.
Oh MeOW, that was you Raena. What happened? How’d it go?
Well sissy, I’s was really scared when we furst got there. Mommy held me close and sang to me and cuddled me till I’s quit shakin’. While we were waitin’, there was lots of big woofies that came in. All of them had to check me out. One of ‘em was a slobbery beast. I’s swear, her slobbered more than you do. And another just squatted right there in the middle of the room and peed all over the place. I’s tellin’ ya’, the whole lot of ‘em had really bad manners. Then, these peeps came in with a carrier full of kitties. They were all ‘bout 4 months old. They were meowin’ like crazy. I’s think they were more scared than I’s was. And after overhearin’ what the their peeps wanted, I’s knew why. They were there to be declawed. What’s even worse, is that their peeps wouldn’t lissen to anythin’ mommy said. I’s didn’t know how to comfurt those poor kitties, their lives were fixin’ to take a turn fur the worse and there wasn’t anythin’ we could do ‘bout it.
Oh Raena, that’s so pawful. We’ll have to say some extra purrayers fur them tonight. So, what happened next?
Well sissy, after they took those kitties away, the tech came and got me so mommy could go to the human pawtty box befur mine’s surgery got started. They used that oppurrtunity to shave mine’s face. They even stole some of mine’s whiskers. Ifin mommy hadn’t been indisposed they’d’ve never stole so many. Anyways, I’s ‘member hearin’ mommy’s sweet voice as I’s fell asleep. When I’s woke up, I’s was sore and scared. Seems mommy went to put mine’s medicines away and pay on the bill, so some tech was holdin’ me. I’s dug mine’s claws into her real good. I’s wanted her to hurt like I’s did. Mommy says it took almost 2 hours, but I’s did good and came out of it purretty fast. I’s was still a little groggy when that tech handed me back to mommy. But I’s felt her luvvin’ arms engulf me and hers sweet smell ticklin’ mine’s nose furs. It was heaven. I’s was shiverin’ and just wanted to come home. Mommy put me in the sling carrier she had bought fur us last year, so I’s could be right next to her heart. Mommy tried to post an update to facebutt, but she couldn’t figger it out on the smarty pants fone.
Since it was your actual birthday and cuz I’s did so good, we stopped at the Arby’s to get us a special treat, turkey tom lurkey and bacon. While we were waitin’ fur our treat mommy noticed the car seemed to be gettin’ hot. So, after we got our sammich, mommy pulled over in the pawrkin’ lot and popped the hood. ‘Pawrently, all our antifreeze was missin’. We don’t know where it went cuz there’s no stains back home where we pawrk, but sure ‘nuff, we didn’t have any. We had to walk over to the convenience store next door and buy some so we could make it back home. Fanky fankfully, we made it home safe and sound. Mommy put water bowls on the floor cuz I’s kept lickin’ mine’s lips and she thought I’s might be thirsty. Hmmmpht Like I’s was gonna drink off the floor or somethin’. I’s laid on one of the piddle pads in the hallway fur a bit cuz it felt like I’s needed to hurl. Mommy was a little worried cuz mine’s breathin’ was so labored and raspy.
Me ‘members seein’ It, uh, well, you in the hallway. Me’s sorry me hissed at you; me didn’t know it was you. Me could hear mommy in the kitchen and since we didn’t get any brekky, me was hopin’ she was makin’ brunch.
It’s okay sissy. I’s didn’t unnerstand why you were bein’ so mean to me, but I’s was so tired, all I’s really wanted to do was cuddle with mommy and take a nap.
Mommy was exhausted too Raena. Now me unnerstands why she wouldn’t let herself fall to sleep tho’. She wanted to keep an eye on you and make sure nuffin’ happened. Me didn’t know that was you playin’ in the kitchen last night when mommy made our dinner, or me would’a played with you. Me was sure that was the innerloper.
It was just me sissy. Mommy purromissed she’d never leave us and she didn’t. There was no innerloper, just me after surgery. I’s felt much better last night and ate a really good dinner. Fanky fankfully, doctor stabby and grabby sent some meds home to help me with the pain, cuz I’s was hurtin’ a little this meownin’. But, I’s hate that nasty salve he sent home fur mine’s eyes. I’s sure hope mine’s whiskers grow back soon. (Raena licks her paw and wipes across her face)
Ifin ya’ don’t quit pawin’ at your face Raena, mommy’s gonna make you wear that silly collar she bought.
Hmmmmpht I’s would like to see her try, sissy. MOL
Well, me’s just glad you’re back and okay. Altho’ with so many sendin’ purrayers up and askin’ God to keep His hand on you, we should’ve known everythin’ would be alright. We can still use some purrayers fur a full and speedy recovery fur RaenaBelle. Cuz of her size and shape, the e-collar is more of a hindrance than a help.
Don’t furget sissy, we’re linkin’ up with comedy Plus fur Feline Furiday.
How could me ever furget Raena. On another note, there’s still time to get your fotos in fur me’s big Birthday/Gotchaday pawrty. It’s gonna be so much fun!!! We better get outta here fur now. Mommy’s still tired and needs another cup of coffee and we need to finish our brekky.
Till the next time……………………………………………….Be Blest!!!

Deztinee and RaenaBelle
Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle!!! Sorry I’s screamin’, but I’s can’t hear mine’s self think over the rumblin’ thunder. But, you’ll be happy to know, sis Dezi be hangin’ with mommy and me. Okay, so maybe she’s pacin’ the floor a bit, but at least she hasn’t made a bee line fur UTB (under the bed). (Raena looks around the room from her perch on the back of mommy’s chair just as a loud, long thunder clap rolls by.) Uh, sissy, where you’d go? C’mon sissy, you know there’s nuffin’ to be ‘fraid of.
Me’s not afraid Raena, me just needed to check on somethin’. Me thought me saw a monster head unner the bed. (Dezi saunters back to the living room)
Hmmmpht Maybe it was the slobber monster. Oh wait, that’s you, you’re the slobber monster. I’s can’t believe you soaked mommy and me with your purr slobbers this meownin’. We were sleepin’ so peacefully when you woke us up slobberin’ all over the place. Yuck!!!
Ah, What’s a little luv slobber t’ween sisfurs, right Raena? Besides, mommy needed to get up anyways.
Luvs slobber? That’s what we’re callin’ it now? (Raena shakes her head) Purrlease, I’s would purrfur you keep your slobber to yourself. Anyways…
Whatever. Are you ready fur tomorrow Raena? Me saw your new pink collar that mommy got fur you to wear.
Yeah, I’s not wearin’ that thing sissy. Anyways, mommy said it was a just in case collar. She said I’s may not even need it.
True Raena, but that’s only ifin you can keep your paws away from your eyes. We all know You’re not gonna be able to do that.
We don’t all know that sissy. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see. As fur bein’ ready, I’s guess I’s as ready as any kitty can be, considerin’. Ya’ know, I’s don’t zactly know what’s gonna happen. All I’s know is that we won’t be gettin’ any sleep cuddles tonight, no late night snacks and we have to be at doctor stabby and grabby’s place by 8:30 in the meownin’. I’s can feel mommy’s tension growin’, but I’s don’t really unnerstand why.
Yeah Raena, me can feel it too. Me knows she’s worried cuz you didn’t do so well with the anesthesia durin’ your spay day. Fankfully, we have lots of furiends that’ll be purrayin’ fur you to come thru surgery just fine and have a speedy and full recovery.
I’s so ‘purreciate all the luvs, suppurrt and purrayers our furiends are sendin’ sissy. They’re the bestest. Hey, ya’ wanna go play? I’s might not feel like playin’ tomorrow.
Sure Raena, me will play with you today. But, be nice. No jumpin’ on me, okay?
Of course sissy, I’s won’t jump on you. (Raena meows while crossing her paws behind her back) By the way, Happy Birthday Dezi, I’s luvs you. Furiends, don’t furget to send us your fotos fur sissy’s Carnival pawrty on November 14th.
Please keep Raena and me in your prayers tomorrow. We appreciate and love all of you.
