          Raena:  I’s didn’t jump on you sissy, I’s jumped over you. I’s was in a hurry to get to the purrch. I’s thought I’s saw somethin’ outside.

Dezi: Ya’ still need to stop. How many times has mommy told you to slow down Raena? Besides, it’s Blest Sunday and was time fur brekky. What ifin mommy had a been tryin’ to bring us our plates at that very minute? Y, All our food would’a ended up on the floor. We’re not heathens, we don’t eat off the floor.

          Meow fur yourself sissy, sometimes I’s find all kinds of yummy things on the floor. Y, Just the other day mommy dropped a piece of cheese in the kitchen when she was makin’ her smashed tater with cheese. Ifin I’s hadn’t grabbed it up when I’s did, she would’a throwed it in the trash. What a waste that would’a been. I’s luvs me some cheese. Ya’ know our china platters are fine, but I’s not gonna miss an oppurr-tunity to eat me somethin’ tasty just cuz it’s not served with silver and gold trimmins. See, sometimes you can find Blessings on the floor. Just be careful it’s food and not a bug. 

 

(Dezi shakes her head) Oh Raena, sometimes me just doesn’t know what to do with you. 

 

          Oh sissy, just luvs me. You know you were just like me once. Mommy says so. She says when you were young you couldn’t wait fur her to open the door in the meownin’ and put the purrch in front of it. She says you used to sit on it fur hours and chirp and chortle at anythin’ that came by.

Yeah Raena, me did. It seems so long ago now. It also seems like there was more to see back then. We used to have stray kitties and all kinds of wildlife play on our porch. It’s gotten so hot, ain’t nuffin’ outside doin’ much of anythin’. Y, just last night it was still 104°F at 9:30 p.m.. That’s just too hot.

 

          Yep sissy, it is. You’d think the old bobcat and the coon family would be knockin’ on our door askin’ fur food. It’s gotta be too hot to hunt.

 

Me’s been wonderin’ where they were Raena. We haven’t seen either of ‘em all season. Maybe when it starts coolin’ off in a couple of months they’ll show up. Fankfully, we furinally got a new lease signed. Our rent went up $30.00, so mommy may have to put her dentures on hold fur a bit. It takes quite a bit of gas to get there every week and she’s been drivin’ on fumes the last couple times. With more money we don’t have goin’ to rent and nowhere to take green papers from, that drive is purretty much the only thing left to cut.

          Well sissy, I’s guess that’ll give her more time to try to fix the mess the manager made and figger out what they can and can’t do befur it all starts again. Ya’ know the manager told mommy that they’re gonna be “rehabing” these ‘pawrtments soon and that they’re gonna wanna do a move out and then move us back in and start all this again in just a few months. Mommy told ‘em they couldn’t do that cuz she has a years lease, and utilities that be in her name that she has to pay each month. While she might not have had to put down a depawsit, those companies charge to turn it on and move it and stuffs. Not to mention the stress mommy’s just went thru. We fur sure can’t be doin’ this again that soon. We all need time to recupurrate.  

 

Yeah Raena, the way they treat us just ain’t right. It’s not like we’re poor and need help by choice. And mommy certainly ain’t disabled by choice. Ifin mommy could change our situation, she would in a heartbeat. Our mommy ain’t afraid of work. Y, Befur her accident, she worked 2 and 3 jobs at a time to make sure she could affurd everythin’ she needed and wanted. 

 

          I’s heard sissy. She says she was young and dumb back then and didn’t save, so that’s why we’re in the shape we’re in now. Altho’ I’s know mommy wishes she could do more and could give us more, and had more money, I’s glad things happened the way they did. Y, ifin they hadn’t who knows where you and me would be? We might not have ever been saved?. I’s don’t even wanna think ‘bout what it would have been like ifin mommy hadn’t showed up and whisked me away to this Blest life. 

 

Dezi lays on liberty tree and Raena on the small perch looking at each other in front of the door.

 

 

 

Me neither, Raena, me neither. We might not be rich by the standards the world uses, but when it comes to luv, we’re bazillionaires. 

 

          You got that right sissy. We’ve got the bestest mommy ever, altho’ we know all of you think you’ve got the bestest pawrent, and that’s okay. And meowin’ of all of ya’, we can’t ‘magine a life without you.

We wouldn’t want to Raena. We have the bestest furiends in the whole universe. God smiled on us the day we met you, our dear furiends, and we ask Him each and every day to keep and Bless you and your families. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. Blessings are all ‘round us, we just have to stop and see ‘em.

  • Wow, that is good that you got the lease renewed, but sheesh, they upped the rent:(
    Hopefully what they said they wanted to do, won’t happen unless a tenant moves out.

    Sometimes it is fun to look back at our past, but sometimes its kind of hard to remember some of the stuff that wasn’t so good…but then we can learn from our mistakes or the detours we had to make. I think God teaches us things in those detours…like when I was very sick, way back in 2006/7 with the cancer I had. I learned so much about myself then and I use the experience to help others when the needs arise. And now that I am healthy I work helping others in the sunset times of their lives at the nursing home.

  • Your oil paintings are splendid! You are artists!

    Say, where will you live while the ‘pawrtments get rehabbed? I know, you could come live with me. Maybe I could send my magic carpet to pick you up? OK, I don’t have one – YET, but it is on my wish list. Tee hee hee. Hugs and luvs.

  • Wow, that is really hot, and there are so many things to worry about. I hope you all won’t worry too much. Sometimes I wish I’d saved more too when I was young and healthy, but then I realize that I could never have saved enough to make a big difference now. Really pretty selfies, you two! 🙂
