Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. Can you believe it? It’s almost Christmas!!! I’s just can’t wait. In t’ween tryin’ to ketch up on our visits, take care of mommy and nap, we’ve been shoppin’ hard fur the bestest gifts to put on our big Gift Guide next week. And yes, we’ve got ideas fur the whole family, men included…and no, they’re not ties, socks or underwear. Mommy said I’s needed to meow that so you all won’t worry. Ya’ know, cuz what could a house of girly’s know ’bout gifts fur men, right?. Sissy? Are ties, socks and underwear not good gifts?
No Raena, there’s nuffin’ wrong with those things as gifts, but they’re not very creative. It’s like the gift one gives when they don’t know what else to think of.
Hmmmmpht Well, I’s can tell ya’ after seein’ some of the holes in mommy’s socks and drawers, I’s know she was thrilled with the new socklets awnty Cindy just sent her. Anyways, we didn’t pick any fur the menfolk. You’ll just have to stop by and check out the guide. We think we’ve got some pawsum picks that just ‘bout anypawdy would be happy to receive.
Me totally agrees Raena. But, that’s next week; today we need to tell everypawdy ‘bout this new food we tried the other day.
We did sissy? I’s don’t ‘member tryin’ it, did you?
Uh, well, why don’t we get to that pawrt after we tell everypawdy ‘bout the basics. Like, mommy would purrfur that we could eat a variety of things, at least every once in a while. You know, ya’ just never know what might happen in the future, so it’s always good fur us kitties to have at least a couple of options so we don’t have to go hungry. As most of ya’ know, we eat freeze dried raw.
Mommy would purrfur we eat all raw sissy.
That’s true Raena. But, mommy is happy enuff that we eat freeze dried raw, so she doesn’t push us…least not yet. Anyways, she would like to find a couple of quality canned foods that we could eat just in case.
In case of what sissy?
Uh…Don’t ask me, me just knows she would like it. So, when Chewy offured to let us try the Miko Grain free Poultry and Tuna Variety Pack, she jumped on it. Let’s see what Chewy has to say ‘bout Miko.

The ingredient list doesn’t look too bad. The variety pack, 12) 3 oz. cans comes in poultry and tuna or seafood and chicken for $14.99. You can also buy them in single flavor packs for the same price. As you can see from our fotos, the contents of the can look like shredded or pulled meat in water/oil. There’s purrlenty of juice in the cans. Mommy says the juice contains some oil based on it’s appearance. She also said that the longer it was on the plate, it appeared to oxidize. Three hours after opening the can and putting it out, the liquid had the appearance of dirty dishwater. I’s sniffed it from afar, but wouldn’t go near it. Furthermore, I’s wouldn’t touch mine’s regular food either till it was removed from mine’s mat.
As you can see by me’s foto, me did check it out and then me looked over at Raena’s pawtion, just to see ifin hers might have looked better or somethin’. Me sniffed it a few times and then ate me’s regular dinner. It smelled kind’a funny. Me would have normally at least lapped up the juice, but this one just wasn’t fur me.
Uh, you need to move that stuffs so I’s can eat mine’s dinner now.
Me either sissy. And the fish formula’s have the bad vit. K ingredient, Menadione Sodium Bisulfate Complex. Since we don’t eat fish, this wasn’t a very big concern fur us, but should be fur the fish eaters. While this food doesn’t make the cut in our house, Chewy has purrlenty of things that do, and at great prices. They have pawsum customer service peeps and free speedy shipping on all orders of $49.00 and more. There’s a low flat rate shipping charge for all other orders. And they have products for the whole family.
Don’t furget some of the greatest boxes ever. While you’re there, check out the holiday shop. Ya’ just might find a gift or two to put unner the Christmas tree.
We need to check out the Christmas shop ourselves sissy. Anyways, let’s get outta here and do some shoppin’ fur our Gift Guide. We’ve got a few more gifts to choose.
Till the next time…………………………………………………….Be Blest!!!
Raena: Navy Blue
Dezi: Vibrant Blue
Luvs and Hugs and Kitty Kisses
RaenaBelle and Deztinee
MeOW What a wonderful week of Blessings and Fankfulness. (Dezi walks back and forth down the hall meowing, stopping occasionally to squat, wiggle and look around before starting up again. She hears the wind blowing through the wind chimes and the leaves rustling outside and jumps on the Liberty cat tree to take a look.) RaenaBelle, hasn’t this been a pawsum week?
Yep sissy, it really has. (The wind blows up a funnel cloud of leaves and Raena crouches on the perch in front of the door watching intently as if she could reach out and catch one.) We’re so Blest; even mommy’s startin’ to feel a bit better. She said fanky fanks to our massages and a box of imitrex her migraine’s let up a lot. At least enuff so she can think again. I’s told her we had plans to make and things to get done befur Christmas. I’s so ready fur Christmas to be here, aren’t you?
ConCats, great masks.
Yeah Raena, me can’t hardly wait. But befur we move on we need to ‘pawlogize fur not announcin’ the winners of our mask contest at me’s Carnival pawrty. What with the innernet bein’ out, mommy’s sick and the holidays, we got way behind. Our winners were Pipo and Dalton. As purromissed, you’ll be gettin’ a little sumpin’ sumpin’; but, all our plans went astray and it ain’t here yet. So, we’ll send it on when we get it, K? Me was so happy to see so many of our furiends purrticipate. The bloggin’ community, cats and their peeps in purrticular are just the bestest ever.
You got that right sissy. Meowin’ of furiends, we need to send out a fanky fank you to awnty Cindy and her brofur uncle Marshall and all the kitties. Not only did they send us that tasty fanky Fanksgivin’ dinner along with a goody box, but they also sent us a case of shelf stable milk and some green papers. Mommy says the car tags are due, so it’s a really big help.
And me wants to fank awnty Vonda fur sendin’ us some green papers too Raena. Mommy said me has a late Birthday/Gotchaday gift comin’.
Really sissy? Are you gonna share?
Is me gonna share? Does me have a choice? Anyways, mommy said there’d be purrlenty. All me can meow is she better be right. You try to hog everythin’.
Me? Nuh uh, that’s not me, that’s you. You’re the one who always throws a hissy fit when I’s try to play bunny kick the nip nanner with you.
That’s cuz you wanna steal me’s nip nanner ‘stead of playin’ with your own Raena. There’s a reason mommy insists on two of everythin’; so we each can have our own.
Then why don’t you play with the other one sissy?
It doesn’t matter which one me plays with Raena, that’s the one you’re gonna want. (Raena thinks for a minute and then goes back to watching the leaves fly around outside while Dezi grins at having left Raena meowless.) Cat got your tongue? MOL
Huh? What does that even mean sissy? I’s a cat, so of course I’s got mine’s tongue. Wanna see? (Raena sticks her tongue out at Dezi)
Me’s gonna tell mommy you’re stickin’ your tongue out and bein’ mean Raena.
I’s not bein’ mean sissy, I’s just showin’ ya’ that I’s got mine’s tongue. You’re the one that asked ‘bout it?.
Oh sure, try to blame me fur your meanness. (Dezi sticks her tongue out at Raena.)
I’s not…sissy…? C’mon sissy, let’s not fight. It’s Blest Sunday, we’re s’posed to be countin’ our Blessings, not arguin’.
You’re right Raena. We are Blest to have more than one nip nanner. We’re Blest in so many ways. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to Give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. And we wanna say a meowsy big Fank you fur bein’ Blessings in ours.
Let’s take a quick selfie and link up with the Kittie Blue fur Sunday Selfies, sissy. And I’s’ll let ya’ play with both nip nanners all by yourself today.
(Dezi meows quietly) Sure you will…but fur how long? Sure Raena, fanks.
Till the next time………………………………………………………Be Blest!!!
Dezi: Vibrant Blue
