Blest Sunday: Blessing Train And Letters To Santa

Hey dearest furiends, it’s RaenaBelle. I’s coming to you live from the Three Belles Ranch…Uh mommy? Are we still the Three Belles Ranch?

          Yes sweetheart we are. We may become something different in the future, but we’ll always be the Three Belles Ranch.


Whew!! Ya’, know, I’s came up with that mine’s self.  


          I know dear. You’re very clever.


Well, befur we get to this weeks Blessing Train, I’s thought I’s might write mine’s letter to Santa Paws. Ya’ think that’d be okay mommy? 


Raena sits pretty on scratcher




          I think that’s a great idea baby.  


Let’s see…


Dear Santa,


I’s been a very good girl this year. I’s always a good girl, mommy says so. Anyways, I’s writing to you because it’s that time of year again and there’s a few things I’d really like to ask you fur. It’s been a really rough year fur a lot of peeps and anipals; and cuz of that, money’s really scarce fur most peeps. That makes me really worry about the feral colonies and stray kitties. Will they have enough food to eat? Will there be enough shelters from the winter storms fur them to slip into? So, ifin you could purrlease send some noms, treats and blankees, and heated houses to the colony caretakers I’s would really ‘purreciate it. And maybe you could give those same caretakers some new mittens and coats to bundle up in while they’re out taking care of their charges. Oh and, coffee. Mommy says they could probably use lots of coffee and hot chocolate. I’s know she sure luvs the stuff.

And another thing. I’s would like you to find luvvin furever homes fur all the anipals in the shelters and rescues. I’s woudn’t be opposed to being one of those homes ifin you see fit. It’s kind’a lonely without sissy, and I’s know it would help with mommy’s sads. I’s would also like fur you to find a way to help all those that have lost their jobs this year. Mommy says it’s gonna be a bare Christmas fur a lot of peeps this year. I’s know you don’t have enough work fur everypawdy, so ifin you can just sprinkle them with some luvs dust so that they can find their Blessings in the midst of the storm and gather the strength and courage to continue on, that’d be great. And a few groceries would be nice too. And toilet paper. Mommy says it’s in short supply again. I’s don’t really understand the need, but mommy says it’s ‘purrtant.

This is mine’s new furever home?



I’s would really ‘purreciate it ifin you could sprinkle some peace dust over the whole world. Things can’t continue this way fur sure. And I’s know this is a big ask, and that mommies and daddies have to pay fur the presents you bring; but, we still need a good car. So, maybe you could send a really good deal our way that we can afford? We’ve been taking donations fur a while, but mommy had to dip into recently, so we’re down a bit, but she’s trying really hard. Maybe you know somepawdy who could help us out. Donations can be made to our paypal here.


One last thing. I’s know sissy was sick and didn’t mean to pee and poo all over our toys and mats, but it happened and mommy had to throw them out. Our dear furiends Timmy, Toby, Rumpy, Fitz, Einstein and uncle Pete sent me a brand new nip nanner, and I’s so thanky thankful. But, I’s would like a couple more toys ifin you can. They don’t have to be expensive. But, I’s would like to be able to welcome mine’s new brofur or sisfur some day with more than just a nose bump. Anyways, take care of mine’s other requests furst. I’s can wait fur next year ifin necessary. Thanky thank you. 


Luvs and KittyBelle Kisses,
