Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. How are ya’ll doin’? It’s furinally here, the day mommy said we could celebrate mine’s Gotcha Day. Mommy came and rescued me from a cage in a smelly house 2 years ago on June 8th. I’s was a scared little kitten, shakin’ all over with lots of gunk in mine’s eyes and nose. Mommy says she could feel the tension in mine’s body when the lady handed me to her. Mommy says contrary to mine’s breed, there wasn’t anythin’ floppy ‘bout me. I’s was shaky and stiff as a board. Mommy says her heart broke fur me and mine’s littermates cuz she couldn’t ‘magine what could make such a young kitty be that scared and I’s wasn’t tellin’.
I’s ‘member the exact minute all that tension left and I’s furinally quit shakin’ and flopped like a purr-opurr Ragdoll. Yep, mommy carried me outside of that place and sat me in her lap. I’s could feel us movin’ but I’s had never been in a car befur, so I’s didn’t unnerstand what was happenin’. And then, mommy picked up mine’s stiff little body, held me close and looked into mine’s gunky blue eyes and said she was gonna luvs me furever and ever and that I’s was gonna live with her. She said I’s would never have to be ‘fraid again and then she kissed me and held me close to her heart. I’s could feel her heart beatin’ and just knew she meant it. That’s the minute mine’s life was furever changed fur the better. And, I’s never looked back.
Oh c’mon now, you’ve been here fur a couple of weeks
now, are you ever gonna stop?
Me ‘members that day too Raena. Kittens!!! ‘Pawrently, you’d never seen a toy or cat tree or bed or anythin’ else. You were like a tornado runnin’ and jumpin’ all over the house. It’s like you didn’t know what to play with furst.
I’s didn’t sissy. I’s couldn’t believe how blest you were. I’s didn’t know a kitty could have so much pawsum stuffs. All I’s had ever known was a cage with a pawtty box in it. And mine’s littermates of course, but they’d never seen any toys either. What a life we have. And then you and mommy told me that I’s had awnties and uncles and lots and lots of furiends who already luvved me. It was almost too good to be true. I’s was ‘fraid to go to sleep that furst night. I’s thought I’s might wake up and find that it had all been a dream.
Nope Raena, it wasn’t no dream, it’s been me’s nightmare. MOL Me’s just kiddin’. You’re alright fur a bratty li’l sisfur. Me sometimes wonders ifin sis Lexi thought ‘bout me that way. Anyways, me saw our furiend Valentine from Noir Kitty Mews hopped in his stroller and headed to our house to join in the celebration.
Did you see the cutesy smilebox card he made fur me, sissy? Pipo and Dalton made me a card too. I’s so blest to have such amazin’ furiends. Fanky fank you all. Ya’ know, this month is almost over and with it goes Cat Adoption Month. But we think every month is Cat Adoption Month as well as every day. There are so many kitties out there that need savin’. Shelters and Rescues are almost always full to overflowin’ with amazin’ kitties just waitin’ fur their furever to show up and tell them they are luvved and will never have to be ‘fraid again. Maybe you’re not ready to adopt a new kitty, but you can still help. Ya’ know fosterin’ is a great way fur kitties to find their furevers, ‘specially ifin they’re one of the fraidy cats that doesn’t do well in cages.
That’s true Raena. But peeps can also donate their time to volunteer. Ya’ know they could go and play with the kitties and luv on ‘em and help socialize ‘em. And shelters and rescues are always in need of supplies like foods, towels, litter, cleaners and all kinds of things. All one has to do is check with their local shelter or rescue and see what they might need at the moment. Easy peasy, it is. Every so offen mommy sacks up some of our old toys and foods that we get and don’t eat and we donate to those kitties less furtunate. And, mommy sometimes drives ‘round lookin’ fur signs of stray kitties who might be hungry. Ya’ don’t have to be rich to help, everypawdy can help in some way.
Mine’s favorite place in the whole wide universe is mommy’s lap.
Oh sissy, those are all great ideas. Ya’ know what would make mine’s celebration even more pawsum? Knowin’ that we helped to make some kitty’s dream of a furever come true. Fanky fank you all fur celebratin’ with me. Why don’t you take a minute today to see what it is that you might could do fur the less furtunate kitties in your area. Now, let’s go eat some pizza and play with the nip toys. I’s even told mommy to pull out the silvervine.
Till the next time……………………………………………………..Be Blest!!!
