Welcome to a very special Blest Sunday. What makes it special, you ask?
Yeah sissy, what makes this Blest Sunday so special?
Me’s so glad you asked. It’s special cuz you’re here. All our furiends are here, and that makes everythin’ purrfect.
I’s thought you meant me, sissy?.
Me does Raena. You’re special too. As most peeps know by now, we only post on Monday, Wednesday, Furiday and of course, on Blest Sunday. And this year, your furst year here with mommy and me, your Gotchaday is on a Fursday. We wanna throw you a pawsum Gotchaday pawrty, Raena; but we don’t normally post on Fursdays. And, this week in purrticular is gonna be a busy one fur mommy. So, since we celebrate Birthday’s and Gotchaday’s all month long, we’ve decided to have your pawrty on Furiday the 9th. And, guess what?
What sissy? What’s better than a pawrty weekend?
Everypawdy’s invited!!! All our furiends and awnties and uncles, and yes, Simon.
Oh sissy, that’s pawsum!!! I’s can’t hardly wait. But sissy, why’s mommy gonna be so busy this week? Is she gonna have time to purrpare fur mine’s pawrty?
Well Raena, mommy has her regular monthly doctor’s ‘pointment on Monday, and then a dentist ‘pointment on Fursday. And, it’s time fur us to recertify our lease, so mommy has to get all our papers and stuffs in order so she can turn ‘em in on time. Ya’ know, so we can have a place to live fur another year.
Is that why mommy’s been so stressed lately? And who’s gonna go with mommy to her ‘pointments?
Yes, Raena, lease re-cert always makes mommy stressed. She says they keep wantin’ to invade our purrivacy more and more each year. Mommy says it sometimes makes her feel like a trained seal; jump thru this hoop, and now this one. And, don’t furget to smile and be grateful the whole time; cuz don’ch’a know at the end, you’ll have this meowvelous 400 sq. ft. ‘partment where we’re gonna bug ya’ to death with inspections. As fur those ‘pointments, it’s s’posed to storm all week, so you’ll be the one accompanyin’ mommy. Besides, since mommy’s dental ‘pointment is on your Gotchaday, mommy said ya’ll would be goin’ somewhere special so you can get a supurr special treat. Mommy purromissed to bring somethin’ special home fur me too.
Really sissy? I’s gonna get a supurr special treat? (Raena gets excited and starts spinning around) Now I’s really can’t wait!!!
Well Raena, you’re gonna have to wait a few more days. By the way, one of our newer furiends said they didn’t know what a Gotchaday was. We ‘member bein’ new to the innernets once and not knowin’ ‘bout Gotchadays too, so we thought we should ‘splain. A Gotchaday is the day a rescued furry goes to live in their furever home. It can also be called an Adoptaversary, Adoption Day or in some cases, it’s the day your humans have decided to make your Birthday. Offen, peeps don’t know the actual birthday of their beluvved furry, so they will just assign a day to celebrate.
And that’s okay too sissy. Whatever day you celebrate your furry, is the purrfect day.
Sure ‘nuff Raena. One of the reasons we celebrate all month long is that mommy rarely has money on our special day; so she figgers ifin we celebrate all month, surely at some point in that month she’ll have enuff green papers to buy us a little somethin’ special. Even ifin it’s just a bag of cheap treats or a dollar mousey from the dollar store. So, every day is a special day in our house.
I’s like that sissy. It also means, lots of extra cuddles and luvvin’ all month long. I’s did hear mommy sayin’ that we were gonna be goin’ to her favorite beauty store, Ulta, this week.
Me heard that too, Raena. Fanks to awnty Ellen who sent mommy a gift card, she can actually buy somethin’ this trip.
Yep sissy, mommy must’ve cried a million tears when she got that gift card. Knowin’ that awnty Ellen had been dealin’ with Snowball’s illness and then sudden loss, and yet, she was still thinkin’ ‘bout mommy’s special day.
Ya’ know Raena, we luv all our furiends so very much, and purray fur them every day. It broke our hearts when Snowball went to heaven, just like with all our furiends who have joined me’s sis Lexi. We just don’t unnerstand why these things have to happen.
I’s fur sure don’t unnerstand it sissy. But maybe it’s cuz God knows there’s another furry out there who needs you more. So, He has to make an openin’ and takes the one who is sufferin’ the most to be with Him. We all know, that once ya’ leave this world, you return to your once purrfect state. There’s no more pain, sickness, or old age. I’s know you and mommy really miss Lexi (God rest her), but ifin she hadn’t gone to heaven, who knows where I’s might have been?.
Yep, Raena, that’s so true. Anyways, as much as mommy and me miss Lexi, we luv you very much and are really glad you’re pawrt of our furmily now. We should also say a meowsy big fank you to awnty Anonymous fur givin’ mommy some green papers fur her birthday, and sendin’ her some more of that powdered cheese and mac noodles. She even told mommy more of that shelf milk to make it up with was on it’s way.
Oh sissy, we are so blest to have so much.
That’s true, Raena. We are blest indeed. We give fanks fur all of our furiends, and ask God to bless ya’ll beyond your dreams. We also wanna remind you to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives.
Let’s link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and see ifin we can get mommy to give us some of those treats.
Me’s with ya’ Raena. Me does wanna tell everypawdy that cuz of all the lease stuffs and mommy’s ‘pointments this week, we’re gonna be takin’ most of this week off. We will of course be back to celebrate Raena’s Gotchaday on Furiday, and we hope all of you will join us.
Till the next time………………………………………..Be Blest!!!
