Blest Sunday: Purrs, Prayers and Friends Make Things Better

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We’ve been gone fur like fur-eeeeever, right? And OMC  You should see the skies and hear the rumblin’ goin’ on ‘round here. I’s thought Spring was s’posed to be here? Really, everypawdy’s been sayin’ it, and everypawdy can’t be wrong, right?


 Raena lays on the back of the chair while Dezi looks up at her from the seat of the chair


          RaenaBelle, what are you meowin’ ‘bout now? 


Everythin’ sissy. Ya’ know we’ve been away fur like…


          Yeah, knock it off with that valley cat mew, you’re a Southern Belle. Besides, we told everypawdy we’d purrobably be gone till Blest Sunday. You know, mommy has such a high tolerance to meds, that they have to give her so much to knock her out, it stays with her fur a few days. They’re always in a hurry to wake her up and send her on her way, so that medicine’s just sittin’ there waitin’ to kick in the minute mommy stops. Mommy’s usually wiped out a couple days after a surgery, but right as rain the day of. We call that a blessing. All went well, and mommy can crash at home. 


 Raena sits posing in her tiger harness

C’mon mommy, I’s all dressed and ready to go.


I’s fur sure didn’t like her leavin’ us here at home, but she was just as chatty when she got home as she was when she left. I’s could hear mommy and her ride in the pawrkin’ lot. They were laffin’ it up befur and after. You know all the nosy neighbors was peekin’ out their doors and windows wonderin’ what was goin’ on. 


 Dezi lays on top of cat tree ledge


          Yep, and mommy could hear you all the way in the pawrkin’ lot too. Fur those of ya’ that don’t follow us on Facebook, we’ll give you a mommy update now. Mommy pawrently has low sinuses and a couple of the teeth had roots embedded in the sinuses. So mommy isn’t allowed to spit, blow her nose or use a straw fur 2 weeks. One of the lower teeth (a wisdom tooth), was really close to the nerve that controls the feelin’s fur the jaw, lip and chin. So, again, no nose blowin’, spittin’, or straw usage. Don’t want mommy getting’ a dry socket or infection that could lead to paralysis. Mommy also found to her chagrin, No air smooches. Cuz of these complications (pawssible) the dental surgeon wants to see mommy again April 13th just to make sure all is well. Mommy’s lower lip is still a bit numb, but she’s got mouth and jaw exercises she’s doin’ and massages to purrvent swellin’. She’s takin’ an antibiotic and has a swish she uses 3 times a day.


Mommy’s not allowed to eat solid foods fur a whole 2 weeks, and then only soft foods like mac and cheese, waffles/pancakes, baked and smashed taters and pasta; we need to get some Hunts pasta sauce, since mommy ate up all those cans awnty Anonymous sent. Right now she’s eatin’ ice cream, and baked smashed taters. She was gonna get some Malt o Meal hot cereal, but there wasn’t any at da stores here. Mommy doesn’t eat “sick foods” like soups, puddin’s, jello, or fruit sauces/baby foods. Yes, she knows they would be good fur her, and ya’ll don’t unnerstand why she doesn’t like those kinds of things; but, she never has. She didn’t grow up eatin’ those kinds of things and never developed a taste fur them.


          Yep Raena, we learned somethin’ really innerestin’ last night. Some peeps call those kinds of foods comfurt foods. But those of us from the South, think somethin’ totally different when ya’ say comfurt foods. Mommy says, she starts envisionin’ chicken fried steak, baked taters and dinner rolls, or chicken and dumplins and bis-kits or roast beef, roasted taters and bis-kits. And of course, baked 3 or 4 cheese mac and cheese is always considered a comfurt food. Anyways, mommy’s doin’ the bestest she can and we’re bein’ the bestest nurses ‘round and takin’ really good care of her.

Could you leave this sweet kitty girl face behind?

Even ifin it’s fur just a few hours?



And even tho’ I’s not happy ‘bout mommy leavin’ us behind, I’s really glad that her ride is/was such a nice lady. Cuz mommy furgot to ask ifin we could use names, we’ll call her, Mrs. Navy. That’s right, she’s a Navy Vet and so is her husband. They also be Christians and attend one of the churches mommy used to play the piano fur. Mommy says they had great conversation goin’ and comin’ home. Yep, mommy was wide awake and totally alert fur the ride home (see sis Dezi’s paragraph above regardin’ medicines and mommy’s tolerances). Anyways, there’s still work to be done in mommy’s mouth when she heals from this purrcedure. So ifin you’d like to donate, you can do so by givin’ directly to our PayPal at: or the Fundraiser here


           Yep Raena, hopefully we’ll be able to get mommy’s mouth all fixed up soon. We’d like to say a meowsy big Fank you to The Swiss Cats fur their donation to the fundraiser. Mommy sounds so funny right now. It’s amazin’ how missin’ some teeth in key spots can make a difference in how some words and letters sound. MOL  And guess what else? Mommy can’t hiss right now. And Raena’s takin’ full advantage of that. Fank the cats mommy harvested the last of her lettuce early last week.


Are you implyin’ I’s bein’ naughty sissy? Cuz that just ain’t true. (Raena giggles under her breath) Mommy said she had to exercise, and I’s just tryin’ to help her out.


          Just her mouth, Raena. She’s not s’posed to be bendin’ over and cleanin’ up after you constantly. (Dezi shakes head)


Whatever, sissy. Anyways, we are so very blest, that everythin’ went well at mommy’s surgery, and that her ride was truly enjoyable and that she came home safe and sound to us. We’re blest that all those complications, haven’t been the purroblem they could have been. And we’re so blest to have the bestest, most suppurrtive furiends in the universe. Fank you all fur your luv, purrs and purrayers. Ifin ya’ don’t mind, keep ‘em comin’. Mommy’s still havin’ some pain and a mix of migraines and sinus headaches.


 Dezi lays in tiger harness

Me luvs me’s new harness, it’s da storms ragin’ outside

me’s not a fan of.


          Hey Raena, me wants to fank awnty Vonda fur me’s new harness and leash. Mommy furinally felt good enuff to get me measured and get it ordered. And it got here yesfurday, just in time fur those really noisy storms. Bein’ in a harness kinda helps me a little durin’ storms. Anyways, me’s now stylin’ right alongside of you. Me can’t wait fur the weather to clear up so me can go out and show it off.


 Dezi gets her chin scratched while wearing her new tiger harness

Me got a new leash to match too. But cuz it was stormin’

mommy didn’t put it on me. There was no way me

  4. Any kind of surgery takes a lot out of a human, kitties…even if they pretend that it doesn’t. You two be very nice for your momma…as you usually are…and maybe even give her some extra snuggles and headbumps, okay? Those extra are for the rest of us wishing her a speedy recovery!

  6. I am sure that once your Mom is able to eat “real” food again she’ll be feeling good as good can be. It’s great that you had a kind driver to took care of your Mom to get her to the dentist and home again. You all have so many truly kind and caring people helping you with all the things you need. We send you hugs…….

  7. We are so happy to read how it all went and that it went so furry well. What a blessing to find a good neighbor like you had to be the driver and a good companion as well. Maybe a friendship will ensue? We’ll pawray fur that too.

    Purrs and pawyers for healing to go well, so that there won’t be infection or complications. We sure hope those migraines and pain go away too.

    A lot of beautiful pictures this post and the last one of you two gals! Raena, you sure know how to put on a serious look,MOL!! Hey you survived the mommy-less time!! See, you can let her out of your sight fur a bit…we do, that’s when we take long naps and spend time looking out the window to snoopervise the great outdoors.
    Your new harness is quite becoming to you Dezi! We are glad it helps a bit when the weather is so noisy.

  8. Hi Dezi, Hi Raena. It’s great things worked out so well for your mom at the dentist, and very blessed you had such a great driver to get you too and fro from the surgery. I’m sure the next two weeks will be hard for your mom, not being able to have hard foods, but things will get better and you two will be able to keep her mind off things, I am sure. I love your new harness, and sure hope those storms and the rain passes quickly so you can show it off about town.
    Purrs for another blessed week.
