Blest Sunday: Preparing For the Future

(It’s Caturday and mommy seems upset. She’s in and out and on the phone a lot. Finally she settles down and both girls check on her and offer purrs)

What’s goin’ on mommy? Why did you go up to mr. W’s house? Is Buddy okay?

 Dezi and Raena look outside from their perches near the door.

 

          No baby, nothing’s okay. 

 

     What happened mommy? Why were there so many peeps outside and all those big trucks with flashin’ lights?

 

          Oh girls, mr. W died sometime last night. All those flashing lights were the ambulance, police, fire trucks and coroner. They came to take mr. W away for the last time.

Our furiend Buddy. 

 

Where’s Buddy? What happened to Buddy mommy? 

 

          That’s what I was trying to find out girls.

 

     He must’a been so scared with all that commotion and all those peeps. He’s not very furiendly to begin with. And loud noises really scare him. And he’s mean to peeps he knows, I’s can only ‘magine how he’d be with all those strangers.

          Yes, Raena, you’re right about all those things. I’m upset, because they called our local pound to come and catch him and take him away. I know we can’t keep him, and he probably wouldn’t be able to be rehomed. But at least he could have been with someone familiar who cared about him at the end.

 

Did Buddy go to heaven with sis Lexi?

 

          Yes baby, he did. They declared him feral cuz of the way he was acting and shot him. Sometimes I hate our town and these back water people and their attitudes towards animals. Mr. W’s family didn’t wanna bother with Buddy, and he hadn’t put anything in writing stating his wishes or naming a person to make those decisions. It’s so frustrating when people don’t think about their pets and what will happen to that pet if they die or can no longer take care of them. And of course, this all hit me pretty hard. I do have a plan in place for ya’ll, but the person that was supposed to take care of it, recently died as well. I’m having trouble finding someone to replace them. But don’t you girls worry about that, I’ll get it worked out.

     Well then mommy, that just means you can’t leave us.

 

 Dezi lays on the Liberty Cat tree, and hangs her head over the edge

 

Me agrees with Raena mommy. You’ll just have to stay right here with us.

 

          I want nothing more girls. We are so blest to have each other.

 

You got that right mommy. Me might hiss and growl at Raena every now and then, but me is glad she’s here. Pest or not, me does luv her. 

 

 Dezi and Raena chat while laying on the chair

 

     Fanky fanks sissy. I’s luvs you too. We are a very blest furmily to have so much luvs.

 

Yep Raena, we are. And we have so many pawsum furiends. What happened with Buddy is pawful, but it happens every day. Ifin we could urge you to do one thing, it would be to make purrpurrations fur your furry furmily members befur it’s too late. We are all blest to have so much, but none of us are guaranteed a tomorrow. This discussion may not be the most pawpular, or cheeriest discussion you could have, but it’s one of the most luvvin’ conversations you can have. Whether you’ve spent one day or ten plus years with you furry furmily member, purrparin’ fur their future, whatever that might be, is just as luvvin’ and purrtant as puttin’ fresh food and water down every day.

 

 Raena sits on perch at door and looks up

 

On another note, would like say fank you to those who have donated to mommy’s dental fundraiser. We’re still a long ways from the goal, but we’re purrayin’ and believin’ that mommy can hold out till we can get enuff to at least get rid of the teeth causin’ so much pain and infection. We purray the infection doesn’t spread and get outta control befur that happens. Ifin you would like to help us, you can donate directly to our PayPal usin’ our email address: lexi.dezi@yahoo.com or by clickin’ here to donate thru the fundraiser.

 

 

     We also wanna say fanky fank you all fur bein’ our furiends. Each day when we purray fur all of you, our hearts swell with joy. Just a few short years ago, we could have never ‘magined bein’ so blest with so many wonderful and caring furiends. We might not have anypawdy local that cares ‘bout us, but we do have all of you. Mommy says any time we don’t post on one of our regular days, there’s been an email or two from one or more of you checkin’ in on us.

 

 Dezi sits on the cat scratcher

 

That’s right Raena. We do have the bestest furiends in the universe. Each of us are blest. Sometimes ya’ just gotta stop a minute and see ‘em. So we’re remindin’ ya’ to take a minute today and everyday to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. We’re also joinin’ the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. And don’t furget to join us tomorrow fur Service Cat Monday. We got some great questions to answer. Me almost furgot; after our last posty, somepawdy asked how high our ceilings are. We looked at the buildin’ plans and then mommy measured as good as she could cuz there was a little confusion ’bout the plans. Anyways, our ceiling’s be ’bout 12-14 feet high. Yep, Raena is a long tall kitty girl.

 

Till the next time………………………………………Be Blest!!! 

 

Have you (your human) made preparations for your (you/pet) in the event they outlive you?

If so, is it in writing or a verbal agreement?

Do you think it’s important to have it in writing?

 

Dezi: Vibrant Blue 

Raena: Navy Blue

Luv and Hugs and Kitty Kisses

  • We can’t believe what happened. We have a mom, a dad, and two non-furry siblings. Our non-furry brother will take care of us if anything happens to mom and dad. Hope you all will feel better soon. That’s awful. Snoops and Kommando Kitty

  • We already read the story of Mr W on fb, Dezi and Raena, and it was heartbreaking. We didn’t know that Buddy was killed then, and we really don’t have words for this. We thought Buddy was going to heaven with Mr W, because sometimes you hear stories that when one has to go, the other goes with him because the heart broke. This is So sad 😥 May they both Rest in Peace ❤ ❤ ❤
    We arranged that when Granny and Grandpaw are gone, I am going to live at my mother’s house again and vice versa. My siblings who live with my mother, come to live with us, when my mom becomes an angel…the twofeet too, but we hope and purray that we will all be together on planet Earth until eternity…or so… Granny says, she also would take you in, but we live to far away to arrange that, so we hope you find someone who take care of you…just in case ❤
    You have become a beautiful big girl, Raena, we just noticed that…well, it runs in the family, right Dezi 😉
    Soft Pawkisses for a wonderful day and Good Luck Pawkisses for the fundraiser, so that your mommy can fix her teeth very soon, before she gets sick ❤ ❤ ❤
