Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. Can you believe it’s already Feline Furiday? Kittens!!! This week did not go as planned, that’s fur sure. Why you ask? Well let me tell ya’.
Hey everypawdy it’s me, RaenaBelle, from mine’s purrch atop the cat tree at the Three Belles Ranch. I’s can’t see much out of the window. Covered with mini blinds and curtains, open only in the middle, mine’s view to the outside world is skewed. Mommy says it’s too cold to have the door open and she’s tryin’ to purr-pare a noise barrier fur when the construction starts. She says it’s our new normal, least fur the time bein’.
Doesn’t it seem strange with the door closed Raena? Mommy says peeps all over the world only open their doors when they’re enterin’ or leavin’ their homes.
I’s know sissy. It does seem strange. Fur as long as I’s can ‘member, we’ve always opened our door every meownin’ befur brekky. This is fur sure gonna take some gettin’ used too. Don’t you think? I’s mean, you know how we kitties are with closed doors.
Yeah Raena, we can no longer see peeps comin’ up the walk. Now we have to wait on ‘em to knock on the door or ring the doorbell. Did you know the doorbell used to scare me?
Really sissy? Why?
Me’s not sure Raena; maybe cuz it’s so loud and comes outta nowhere.
Hmmmmmm I’s like the doorbell. When it rings, it usually means we’re gettin’ somethin’. Like the other day when the Fedex man rang and left our noms.
Yeah Raena, me doesn’t mind it ringin’ when we get somethin’. ‘Course, it doesn’t really bother me any more. Mommy always tells us how proud she is of us when we don’t run, so me just decided to stop bein’ scared of it. Me likes it when mommy’s proud of us.
I’s do too sissy. Ya’ know, I’s thinkin’ we should get some treats fur not bein’ ‘fraid. What do you think?
Me’s not sure mommy thinks that’s treat worthy Raena. Besides, you didn’t eat your treats the last three times mommy gave ‘em to ya’.
I’s don’t like that kind anymore sissy. I’s wanted somethin’ different.
Like what Raena? That’s the fourth treat you’ve turned your nose up at this year. And it’s only been this year fur a few weeks now.
Purrlease…Like you haven’t done the same thing sissy. How many treats have you refused to eat lately.
Eh, Me would rather have a bit of good nip or vine than some crunchy piece of fake chicken.
Me too. Even better, I’s like playin’ with mommy. Meowin’ of, ya’ reckon she’ll have time to play with us today? I’s been workin’ on some new moves to try out with the cat dancer.
You’ve been workin’ on some new moves huh Raena? You know mommy isn’t gonna let go so you can drag it off to your hidin’ spot, right?
Ya’ never know sissy, she might lose her grip. All it takes is one time and it’s mines. MOL
Sure Raena, you keep thinkin’ that. (Dezi yawns and stretches) Me could use a nice nap. Why don’t you go play with mommy and let me sleep.
Fine sissy, ifin you wanna sleep your life away, then go ahead. I’s got places to go and peeps to meet and…
Raena, you ain’t goin’ anywhere. You can be so dramatic. Seriously, you’ve gotta quit watchin’ so much tv.
Maybe someday sissy, but not today. The Vikings are on today, and I’s luvs the Vikings. Sissy? Sissy? Hmmmmpht Guess she’s already asleep. Oh well, a nap does sound like a purretty good idea.
Till the next time…………………………………………………….Be Blest!!!

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Hurry, gather ‘round, our playdate guest will be here any minute now. (Raena frantically surveys her kingdom to make sure everything’s picked up and clean. She wants her playdate to feel welcome) Sissy, are you ready, Prancie’s gonna be here soon?. Why don’t you ask mommy ifin we can put some silvervine down on the scratchers. I’s bet Prancie would luvs that.
Raena, calm down. Me’s sure Prancie will have fun. Besides, we’re gonna have a story time with her new book. You know, the one awnty Ellen sent us to review. There’ll be purrlenty of time to play later. Now, help me set up our tunnel pawtal so she doesn’t smack into the door. (Dezi and Raena get the tunnel set up and have a quick bath before Prancie arrives. Suddenly they hear the swoosh of the portal) Hurry Raena, she’s here!!!
Hey Prancie, good to see ya’ girl. How was your trip? Wanna lay down on the scratcher and rest a minute? We’ve been lookin’ furward…
RaenaBelle!!! Calm down, let her ketch her breath fur kittens sake. Sorry ‘bout her Prancie, she only has one speed and it’s full on all the time.
No problem Dezi, there’s a few of those at my house too. With so many siblings, you can always count on mayhem. And in the 13 years I’ve lived at my house, I’ve seen it all. Thanks for inviting me over girls, I’m happy to be here. This scratcher is pretty comfy.
It is, isn’t it Prancie. Besides mommy’s lap, it’s purrobably our next favorite seat. So, do have any besties at your house?
Well Raena, Phoebe and I hit it off right from the start. I pretty much get along with everybody, but yeah, I’d say Phoebe was my bestie. She is missed. (Prancie drifts off in memory for a minute)
Let’s meow ‘bout your book fur a minute Prancie. We luvved readin’ your story. Altho’ me has to admit, it made us very sad that somepawdy could kick you out into the cold mean streets. We’re such pam-purred pusses, we can’t even ‘magine what you must’ve went thru.
It was quite a shock to me too Dezi. It got so cold, and I was so hungry, I almost gave up. My ears were so cold and then they weren’t. Part of them died and fell off. It sure was a rough life. When I saw that manger with fresh hay part of me wanted to just curl up in it and die. But, when I saw the people who would become my forever family, a little spark of hope welled up inside me and gave me the strength to ask God and them for help.
Ooh Ooh, that’s mine’s second favorite pawrt, Prancie. Mine’s favoritest pawrt is when awnty Ellen and uncle David adopted you and let you stay with them.
Well Raena, my dad wasn’t my biggest cheerleader at first. But, I finally wrapped him around my paws. I’m a big daddy’s girl for sure. One of my favorite things is the chicken he feeds me off his plate. As you all would say, I’m one blest kitty, that’s for sure.
I’s luvs the pics.
You sure are Prancie. I’s know sissy and me are so Blest to have you and your whole family as furiends. We think your ears give you character. We know ya’ll didn’t include the story of your ears in your book, but we’re glad you meowed ‘bout ‘em here. Peeps need to unnerstand, that just cuz we kitties have furs doesn’t mean we don’t get cold and suffer from weather the same as they would. We think your book would make a purrfect gift fur any occasion. And, with Christmas comin’ soon, we hope it makes it unner the tree fur lots of little humans.
We should tell everypawdy where they can get their own copy girls. It’s available on amazon and Barnes and Noble fur $12.95. And, peeps can also order it directly from you and awnty Ellen at 15andMeowing.com fur $10.00. You can also get the kindle version fur $2.99. All proceeds go to help suppurrt all the kitties livin’ with Prancie and awnty Ellen.

Fanky fank you Prancie and awnty Ellen. We luvs give aways. We hope all our U.S. readers get in on this. And fanky fank you fur comin’ fur a playdate. We totally luvved your book. We also learned that awnty Ellen has a degree Elementary Education and that’s what sparked her idea to write your story as a children’s book. Like ya’ll, we believe that all kitties and even woofies deserve luvvin’ furever homes. The ‘purrtant thing to ‘member, is that kitties don’t act out of spite. There’s no bad kitty.
