Hey everypawdy, are ya’ out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. (Raena looks around and out the door and back into the living room. She sees Dezi washing her face after eating a few bites of breakfast and meows…) Hey sissy, is our innernets back on? I’s don’t know who keeps cuttin’ what, but I’s ‘bout tired of them cuttin’ our innernets. I’s asked mommy ifin she had furgotten to pay the bill or somethin’ cuz this was the 3rd time this month we’ve been offline.
Me knows Raena. It’s really frustratin’ when ya’ have things to do and no way to do ‘em and no answers as to why. We do seem to be back online, but who knows fur how long. Mommy’s counselor said she was told that somepawdy had cut one of the fiber optic lines and cut the innernets fur all of Southern Oklahoma the last time and this time. Y, Even the stores couldn’t opurrate cuz they’re credit card machines weren’t workin’. Me can only ‘magine what it would’a been like had it been black Furiday or Cyber Monday. (Dezi shakes her head)
Meowin’ of shoppin’ days sissy, I’s thought we’d post our Holiday Gift Guide picks today.
Great idea Raena. We’ve chosen some pawsum items fur the whole family.
Yep, and we tried to make sure we picked somethin’ in every price point. Ya’ know, not everypawdy has a lot of green papers to spend. We must let ya’ know that this posty contains a few affiliate links. That means ifin ya’ buy somethin’ usin’ our linky, we’ll get a small percentage so we can buy us some treats or somethin’. Mine’s furst pick are these really cool food and drink bowls.
1. Vivipet Ceramic Q Bowl and the Big Head Water Bowl fur cats or the Pawsome D Bowls fur dogs: At $24.99, $26.99 and $34.99 for quality ceramic, they would make a great addition to any kitty or woofie’s meal time. And they come in 5 great colors.
Me thinks those are great Raena. Me’s been tryin’ to get mommy to get us a couple. Vivipet also has some great elevated feeders, cat grass containers, and toys. And me’s pick fur the cat luvvin’ humans:
2. Set of 2 Fat Cat Plates and/or the Angel Cat Mug’N Bowls: Cost: $24.99
All ceramic and beautiful colors to match your furry furiends dishes fur $24.99 each; make these a great choice fur our peeps.
Mine’s next pick is a bit on the high end, but worth every penny:
3. The Litter Robot III Open Air or Litter Robot 3 Connect: Cost: $449.00 or $499.00 Reward: No Scooping (Yay!!!)
Ifin you’re lookin’ fur a self cleaning litter box, this is our top pick. Easy set up, works with most clumping cat litters and any trash bags. No ongoing equipment or accessory expenses required. You can check out our review here.
Me’s next pick is one that almost all kitties luv:
4. The Yeowww Nip Banana: Cost: $4.95 Reward: Hours of fun fur kitty
At $4.95, even ifin you already have one, it’s great to have one in reserve. These nanners get lots of luvvin’ and need to be replaced occasionally. ‘Course, nanners aren’t all Ducky World (Yeowww) makes. Click the linky to check out other great Yeowww nip products. We even located them in the UK.
You are so right sissy. We should add that there’s no comparison, so don’t waste money on knock offs. Fur you kitties that don’t get any enjoyment from catnip, don’t worry, mine’s next pick is top of the line Silvervine:
5. Cloud Nine Silvervine powder: Cost: $11.99 Reward: Ecstatic Kitty
At $11.99 this little tin should be kept out of kitty’s reach, it’s like kitty gold. We also hear from our good furiend Purrseidon, that CatABliss has some pawsum nip and vine mixes you might wanna try.
Oh Raena, that’s a furtastic pick. Me luvs nip, but the vine…is soooooo fine. Ya’ know, we’ve listed some great kitty gifts, human picks and even somethin’ fur the woofies; but we haven’t yet given ya’ our pick fur the mini humans with sticky fingers. Me’s pick fur the young’uns:
6. Prancie’s Prayer: Cost: $2.99 – $12.95 Reward: A child’s smile
This pawsum little book will make a great gift fur boys and/or girls. Check out our review here.
I’s luvved readin’ Prancie’s book sissy. That’s a wonderful pick. (Raena leans in and whispers to Dezi) I’s was thinkin’ we could use our last 4 picks of this posty fur our priceless picks and then post the rest of our picks after Fanksgivin’. What do you think?
(Dezi nods and whispers back to Raena) Me agrees Raena, that sounds like another good plan.
Okay furiends, our last 4 picks today are priceless, but can be given to anyone by anyone. Furst up:
7. Love Notes: Cost: Free to cheap Reward: Priceless
You’ll need a few pieces of paper cut into 3X3 squares/hearts/circles or any shape you’d like, or post it notes. You’ll also need a small box with a removable lid (shoebox/costume jewelry box, etc.). On each piece of paper, write down something luvving, like, I’s luvs you, You’re special, You’re purrfect, I’s like you, You’re mine’s bestest furiend, etc.. Once you have your luvs notes written down, put them in the box and wrap it. The recipient can pull out a luvs note anytime they need a little pick me up.
8. Luv Cuddles with Purrs: Cost: Free Reward: Priceless: Less stress and happy humans and kitties
This is me’s next pick. Mommy can never get enuff Luv Cuddles. She says all humans crave this attention from their kitties. You woofies can give Luv Cuddles too, you just don’t have the Purr pawrt. Maybe, you could add a bit of drool. Woofie humans seem to like that.
You’re right sissy, mommy does luvs Luvs Cuddles with Purrs.
9. Everlasting Gift Notes: Cost: Free Reward: Priceless Elation
You’ll need the same supplies as those fur Luvs notes, but this time, you’ll write an action you can purrform fur your recipient. Like ifin you’re a man gifting to a woman, you might say somethin’ like, I’s’ll wash the dishes after dinner tonight. Or, Good fur 1 free massage. Actually, that’d be a good one no matter who the giver or receiver is. Ifin you’re a kitty givin’ to your woofie housemate, you could say, No whacky paws across your nose fur 1 whole day. Just ‘member to not go overboard. Don’t purromiss somethin’ you can’t deliver. MOL
Or ifin you’re recipient is another kitty Raena, you could meow that you won’t pester your big sisfur fur one whole week. Anyways, our last pick today is:
10. Together Time: Cost: Free Reward: Priceless
Just spending time together can wipe away all the bads of the day. Turn off all the tech and spend time listening to each other.
Another great pick sissy. I’s know we’ll be givin’ mommy every one of our last 4 picks and I’s sure she’ll be givin’ ‘em right back. Fanky fankfully, she believes that True Luvs is the greatest gift of all and no amount of money can buy it. Guess we better wrap this up…MOL get it, wrap this up? Anyways…let’s try to get some visitin’ in. We can’t be sure how long we’ll have innernet right now, so we need to take full advantage when we do.
Till the next time…………………………………………………….Be Blest!!!

RaenaBelle and Deztinee
MeOW (Dezi lays on the scratcher cleaning her face after having a few bites of breakfast, when she hears a low rumble off in the distance…) Hisssssssssss Hurry Raena, we’ve gotta write our Blest Sunday posty befur the storms start up again. (Dezi looks up at mommy A sitting in the chair beside the scratcher and begins to meow) Mommy, me’s so tired of the storms. Me didn’t even get to take selfies with you and Raena.
Well whose fault is that sissy? Mommy called you like, elebenty billion times. You’re the one who chose to stay UTB (under the bed) ‘stead of comin’ out fur the foto shoot. ‘Course, I’s’ll tell ya’, you didn’t miss much. Mommy couldn’t figger out how to make the smarty pants fone camera turn ‘round; and shootin’ selfies with the regular camera was like shootin’ in the dark. And, mommy made me sit and stare into the air the whole time she messed with ‘em. She got great fotos of mine’s paws and her neck. And a few of our tummies, and the tippy tops of our heads. I’s tellin’ ya’, we’d have blooper fotos fur a year outta that one foto shoot.
Really Raena? Well, guess it’s good that mommy doesn’t claim to be a seasoned or purrfessional fotographer. Otherwise, it would really be embarrassin’. Sometimes, me thinks we could take better fotos even tho’ we don’t have any thumbs.
You’re purrobably right sissy. We did furinally get a couple of usable fotos. Fanky fank heavens. Mommy’s been so x’cited ‘bout havin’ her new teethies, and we know everypawdy wants to see ‘em, so she wasn’t ‘bout to stop till we got at least one foto. Mommy was so touched by everypawdy who said she was purretty even without makeup.
Yeah Raena, but they’ve never seen her. Ya’ know, it’s kind’a like the old barn on the farm. It’s full of memories and luv but not much to look at. But, you throw a couple coats of fresh paint on ‘er and she’s not an eyesore anymore.
Sissy?!! Are you callin’ mommy an eyesore? I’s gonna tell.
Go ahead blabber mouth. Me wasn’t callin’ mommy an eyesore. Me was just sayin’, some old barns look better with a few coats of paint. You know, mommy’s got scars and discolorations and no eyebrows. You know how self conscious she is. She gets all decked out fur her drivers license foto fur kittens sake.
That’s true sissy, she sure does. Anyways, I’s think the new teethies look purretty good. It’s fur sure nice to see mommy smilin’ again. She’s gonna need some adjustments, but ‘pawrently, that’s purrfectly normal. And as soon as we get the green papers fur more gas, mommy’ll call and make a ‘pointment. Mommy says she’s so very fanky fankful fur all the luv and suppurrt from our furiends durin’ this long purrocess. We are so very Blest to have the greatest furiends in the universe.
We are Raena. That’s why we fank God fur them every day and ask Him to Bless them and meet all their needs.
I’s luvs purrayer time sissy. I’s luvs countin’ all our Blessings. (Seeing Dezi pawing through the toy basket, Raena meows…) Sissy, what are you doin’? There’s a nip nanner right here, and a nip heart and fishy and our made with luvs by awnty Ellen, silvervine toast over there.
(Looking up and over her shoulder from the toy basket) Me knows Raena, but those aren’t the toys me wants to play with right now. Me’s sure there’s somethin’ really fun in the toy basket, me just has to dig out some of these toys on top.
But sissy, mommy just picked up all those toys and put ‘em away. I’s don’t think she’s gonna be too happy ‘bout you scatterin’ ‘em all over the floor again.
She won’t care Raena. Mommy’s always sayin’ how much she luvs to see us playin’. (Dezi pulls the top layer of toys out of the toy basket and then looks around) We sure are Blest to have so many toys. Me thinks me’d rather play with the nip heart after all. As we do every week, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your life. Fank you fur bein’ Blessings in ours.
Hey sissy, don’t furget, we’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. After all I’s had to put up with to get a usable foto of mommy’s new teethies, we’re fur sure postin’ ‘em. Truth be told, I’s totally enjoyed bein’ held by mommy. Ain’t ‘nuffin better than mommy luvvin’.
Till the next time…………………………………………..Be Blest!!!
