MeOW Hey Raena, hurry up. It’s Blest Sunday. Even better, it’s Christmas Eve. We’ve got lots to be fankful fur and lots to do to get ready fur tomorrow.
I’s comin’ sissy. I’s was helpin’ mommy with our Christmas carols. She says she’s gonna try to make a slideshow fur our video since we don’t have the fancy equipment needed to make a real video. And, I’s saw turkey tom lurkey move from the freezer to fridge. I’s so x’cited, I’s can’t hardly wait. I’s just luvs Christmas time!!!
Me too Raena, me too. We wanna say a meowsy big fank you to everypawdy/kitty/doggy that sent us cards and gifts. Fanks to those who sent mommy foods fur Christmas and thru out this past year. Fank you to those who sent gift cards and paypal greenies. We have so many angels. We fank you all fur bein’ our furiends. Two little kitty girls and their disabled mommy are blest beyond measure, we’re filthy rich with luv.
And fanky fanks to all who helped with mommy’s teethies purroblems this past year. She feels sooooooo much better. And come February, she’s gonna have a whole new smile. Hey sissy, did you know mommy wrote a poem fur today?
Yep, me did Raena. Let’s post it and get outta here and help mommy finish our video. Furst, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives.
We gotta link up with the Kitties Blue right quick fur Christmas Eve Sunday Selfies.
Welcome to a very special Blest Sunday. As ya’ll know, we luv blest Sunday’s, but today is even more special. Today, is Mother’s day. We know this day is all ‘bout women who have 2 legged children. But what ‘bout those women who fur whatever reason don’t have 2 legged children? Or those who gave their luv to a child who didn’t have any? And those like mommy, who only have furry four legged kids? Well, we say ifin you’ve ever luvved and nurtured a young’un, be it furred or non furred, you’re a mother.
You’ve no doubt gone without at one time or another to make things better fur that young’un. You’ve laffed whether they were funny or not, and cried when they were hurt. You felt purride in their accomplishments and joy in their happiness. And gave fanks at the end of each day that they were close to you.
That’s right sissy. We salute all mother’s today and every day fur your unconditional luvs. We fanky fank you fur puttin’ us young’un’s befur yourself, and fur givin’ us the most pawsumest life.
Yep Raena, you got that right. We wrote a little poem fur all the mother’s of furries every where. We realize that not all furry children can do the things we do but we know they luv their mommies just as much as we luv ours. We’ll be givin’ mommy lots of extra luv and massages today. But befur we get started we wanted to wish you all the most Blest and Happy Mother’s Day ever!
My Life Wouldn’t Be The Same
Without you, my life wouldn’t be the same.
Maybe you found me, looking starved and scroungy on the streets.
Maybe you found me hiding in a cage
At some shelter, that took me in.
Maybe you found me online
Being fostered by a caring human.
No matter how you found me…
My life changed that day,
And so did yours.
I’m so happy you chose me.
Out of all the kitties in the world
You looked at me
And saw my inner beauty.
You saw passed my sad eyes,
My dingy fur and even my fear.
Now, I wait to hear your voice calling my name,
To feel your gentle caress on my clean shiny furs.
I watch for you from the window sill when you’re away
Hey sissy, Let’s remind everypawdy that they can read the whole Mother’s day article that goes with our poem at the Daily Mews.

Your emails will never be sold and ya’ won’t get tons of spammy emails. But you will be able to get a monthly heads up ‘bout some great kitty stories.

Nope, we’re not in that group, but there’s been some great articles from those who are. We also wanna fank all our furiends fur bein’ a pawrt of our lives.
Oh sissy, we are such Blest kitty girls. Our lives fur sure wouldn’t be the same without mommy and all our furtabulous furiends. ‘Member to take a minute today and every day to give Fanky fanks fur the blessings in your life. We’re joinin’ the Kitties Blue fur a special Mother’s Day Sunday Selfies. Mommy had plans to take some selfies with us fur today. She hennaed all that gray hair away and put on her made up face and grabbed the camera and then us.
OMC Raena, was that ever a fun exercise. Mommy must’a took a hunnerd fotos. Then, she loaded ‘em into the catputer to see what we had, and…
Oh sissy, did you see the one of just our ears and mommy’s neck? Mommy may be good at a lot of things, but selfie takin’ ain’t one of ‘em. MOL
You’re right ‘bout that Raena. But it was fun tryin’ to take selfies with mommy. Anytime we can spend bein’ close to mommy is a good time. Let’s wrap this up, and get mommy’s special day started.
I’s right behind ya’ sissy. I’s just wanted to remind everypawdy that part 2 of our innerview with Valentine can be read by clickin’ here.
RaenaBelle, it’s your turn fur some lap luvvin’ time with mommy.
It’s ‘bout time. But why is she so sad sissy? I’s know the weather has made her pains more and her teeths are hurtin’, but those things don’t usually make her be so sad?.
Oh Raena, you know mommy luvs you very much, right?
Of course, sissy. And I’s luvs mommy verrrrrrrrrrrry much too. I’s so happy that she’s mine’s mommy. I’s try to show her how much I’s luvs her every day.
She knows Raena. She’s sad right now, cuz befur you, me had a big sisfur who mommy luvved very much. They had been together a really long time. And then one day, God called Lexi to heaven. That broke mommy’s heart. Tomorrow will mark 1 year since sis Lexi left us. And tho’ you nor me will ever be Lexi, it’s our job to help ease mommy’s pain from losin’ her.
Should we be doin’ somethin’ special, sissy?
Nope Raena, that’s the beauty of luv. All you have to do is be yourself. As much as we luv mommy, she luvs us. And all we need to do is just show mommy we luv her. Maybe some extra purrs and cuddles, but we luv those too.
Dear furiends, ya’ may have noticed we’ve been a little quieter the last few days. Well, mommy’s been a little sad and down and reminiscin’ ‘bout times past. Raena and me have been getting’ a lot of extra luvvin’, and we’ve been returnin’ it in spades. Mommy wrote a poem to sissy the other day, and we thought we’d share it with ya’ll today. Fur those of ya’ that joined us in the last year, you may not ‘member sis Lexi, but she will always live on in our hearts. We do hope that you will pardon our reflection on such an amazin’ soul. Sis Lexi will always be the Gold Standard by which all Service Cats will be measured. Her luv and devotion to mommy, knew no bounds. Mommy says that same luv exists in all of us, and she is so blest to be the recipient of that luv time and again.
(Raena wipes the tears from mommy’s eyes, and cleans the salty water from her paw and looks up at her.)
We luvs you very much mommy.
I love you girls very much too. Raena, you and Dezi are the greatest blessings in my life. I will always miss Lexi, and those that went before. But I will cherish every moment I have with ya’ll.
While mommy wrote this poem fur sis Lexi, we know a lot of you have lost luvved ones and feel that despair. We dedicate it to all those who have known that luv and lost it. Purrlease know, you can find that luv again just like mommy has with me and Raena. We’re sending out big hugs to you all.
Mommy, Mommy!!! It’s almost Christmas!!! Tell us da night befur story. Purrlease???
The night before Christmas story? Well, okay sweety. Girls come sit down. (Dezi jumps to the arm of the chair and cuddles next to mommy. Raena jumps into mommys lap and lays down).
T’was the night before Christmas, when all through the house. Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
Hmmpht They don’t have Raena in their house. Dat’s not da right story, mommy.
It’s not? Well darlin’, why don’t you tell us the night before Christmas story?
(Dezi clears her throat and tells the tail tale.)
T’was the night before Christmas, and all through the house
Raena was stirring and running about
Our stockings were hung on the hutch way up high
So we couldn’t reach them in the middle of the night.
Our new ‘lectric blanky was calling our names,
Come snuggle, Dezi, Raena, mommy needs you both the same.
We jumped on the bed, for our friends we then prayed,
Including strays and ferals, homes for them, we bade.
When all of a sudden Raena jumped with kittenish joy,
Zoomies through the house, Was she looking for a toy?
Up the tree, down the tree, she chortled some more
Back to bed, mommy hollered, which she promptly ignored.
Me couldn’t take it, me had to go see
Just what had she found that was causing such glee?
Down the steps and through the house me zoomed
Me ran in and out of every room.
Where is Raena? Where did she go?
Me chortled and chirped, but she mewed not a word.
Mommy called to me in that sweet loving sleepy voice,
Dezi, come back to bed, and stop making so much noise.
What? It wasn’t me that was clamoring about,
That was Raena…Before, not now.
Now she’s snuggled by mommy asleep,
Back to bed me goes, our nightly secrets to keep.
Morning will come soon enough my love,
Mommy said quietly, as she pulled me close for a hug.
Goodnight dear friends, sweet dreams to you all;
Back under the blanky me now must crawl.
So? What’d ya’ think mommy?
Well sweety, I think it’s purrfect. I think you’re purrfect. And Raena, I think you’re purrfect too. Why don’t you girls wrap this up. We have lots to do before tomorrow.
I’s wanna wish everypawdy a Merry Christmas.
Raena, we all wish our furiends a Merry and Blest Christmas. And we thank all our Angels who have sent us gifts. We’ll be openin’ them tomorrow, but we’ve fur sure been checkin’ out all da boxes. And we thank all of you fur da pawsum Christmas cards. We’ve really enjoyed getting and lookin’ at ‘em all. Gotta go, mommy has fotos to edit, and visits galore.
