Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle comin’ to ya’ straight from mommy’s lap. Let me tell ya’, it’s the bestest seat in the house. Ya’ know, we’ve had a lot goin’ on ‘round here this week; what with the ongoing light bulb issues and ants in our house. But, our issues pale in compurrison to the trials of our dear President Trump or our sweet furiends in and ‘round Australia.
MeOW C’mon RaenaBelle, it’s Blest Sunday. Time to count our Blessings. And, since it’s also December, me thought it would be pawsum to bring back the Blessing Train fur our countdown to Christmas. Our sweet furiend Valentine said he would join us. Last year we counted down 12 days of Christmas; but there’s so much goin’ on ‘round the blogospere and the real world so me thought this year we would just run the train on Sundays. And…
Yeah sissy, I’s so x’cited. Anypawdy who wants to join up can post any days they wish, and each Sunday, we’ll add their car to ours. I’s would luvs it ifin we could make the Blessing Train go ‘round the world.
Me too Raena. To join the Blessing Train, all you have to do is post your Blessings. You know, whatever you’re grateful/Thankful fur and leave the link to your posty in the comments of our Blest Sunday postys. You can post as manyBlessings as you want or just once this month. And each Sunday, we’ll post your link along with your Blessing Train car so others can enjoy the ride. You’ll find your box car below. You can decorate it any way you want. You may also take any of the train fotos you’d like fur your own posty.
Oh sissy, this is gonna be so much fun.
Yep Raena, me luvs it when our furiends get together to celebrate. Meowin’ of celebrations, we oughtta celebrate the fact that mommy’s feelin’ better. She even helped me with me’s audition tape fur the cat scouts choir. It’s a wonder we got anythin’ done what with you all up in her face and stuffs.
I’s just wanted to be in the recordin’ too sissy. Ya’ll looked so funny with your headfones on singin’ along to nuffin’. Least it sounded like nuffin’ from where I’s sat. I’s finally got close enuff to the headfones to hear the music. It was kind’a like one of those recordin’ studios I’s see on tv, x’cept it was right here on the ranch (our apartment).
When was that Raena? When you head butted the microphone or bit mommy’s nose? Anyways, in spite of all the furry inneruptions, we got me’s audition finished. We even had enuff time to check out some tracks fur mommy to record. Last time, we got some requests fur mommy to sing some country songs. Long ago in another life, mommy sang with several different bands. Things have changed a lot since then. But, we’ve picked out a few songs that we think everypawdy will like and we’re even addin’ a fun Christmas song. We’ll be postin’ those fur ya’ soon.
Does that mean more singin’ with the funny headfones sissy?
Me isn’t sure how mommy’s gonna do it yet Raena, but whatever she does, it’s bound to fun. Me will say, mommy’s old country, but ifin ya’ have any requests, she’ll try to sing ‘em; just let us know in the comments below.
Mommy can sing anythin’, sissy. I’s luvs it when she sings to us. It makes me feel all warm and purry inside.
Me too Raena. Well, me thinks we oughtta get the Blessing Train fired up. We also wanna fank awnty Susan fur her gifty. And me wants to fank all of you who sent green papers fur me’s Birthday/Gotchaday. Mommy says me’s gift should be here tomorrow. Me can’t hardly wait.
Me either sissy. But, that’s not our Blessing fur the Train this week. Today, we’re givin’ Fanks fur all our pawsum furiends. All of you have made our lives so much better.
Here’s a box car fur you to take and decorate any way you wish to add to
your posty. We’ll then add your boxcar to the train fur next week.
Yep Raena, furiends are one of the greatest gifts one can have. 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 and Thank you fur bein’ Blessings in ours.
I’s gonna link us up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and then what do ya’ say we help mommy record some songs sissy?
MeOW WooHoo It’s furinally Furiday!!! And let me tell ya’, it’s cold and yucky and gray outside. There’s like a bazillion dead leaves all over the place. Everytime mommy opens the door they try to get inside. Ya’ know, some places have these really purretty leaves, but not us. Nope, our leaves are all one color…dead. That reminds me, in case you missed our announcement, Service Cat Furidays will return in the new year. We’re just takin’ a little break. What with the holidays comin’ and all, we thought mommy’s brain could use a little rest. After all, she is the one that has to do all the research and stuffs fur our Service Cat postys. In the meantime, you can always ketch up on any posts from our series by clickin’ the links on our Training Tips and Everything Feline page. And you can always send us your questions via our Contact page.
Wha’ch’a doin’ sissy?
Nuffin’ Raena. Me was just remindin’ peeps that our educational Furidays will be back. Ya’ know, lots of peeps come here on Furidays that don’t come by the rest of the week. Me just wanted to remind ‘em that things would be back to normal after the holidays. Me’s favorite holidays are Fanksgivin’ and Christmas; and they’ll both be here befur ya’ know it.
Mine’s eyes are doin’ really good as you can see.
I’s can’t wait fur Christmas sissy. But furst, we’ve got your birthday/gotchaday pawrty next week. Me and mommy are gonna be workin’ all weekend to put the final touches together. Since we spent so long without the innernet we didn’t get to it earlier.
Me’s gettin’ really x’cited Raena. Me can’t wait to see what you have planned. Me sure hopes it’s better than your business plans. Come to think of it, you haven’t had one of those in a while. What’s up?
Well sissy, it’s not fur the lack of thinkin’, but t’ween plannin’ your pawrty and mine’s surgery, I’s just haven’t had the time to put anythin’ together to purrpose.
Me thought fur sure you’d have somethin’ planned befur the holidays Raena. We need to do somethin’ so we can get each other and mommy a purresent.
Actually sissy, I’s just thought we could go with some of those Purrs With A Purr-Puss. You know how much mommy luvs a good purr. And fanky fankfully, we don’t need any green papers to buy ‘em. I’s been checkin’ the ads and even ifin we started a business now we wouldn’t be able to raise enuff to buy anythin’. Y, I’s couldn’t believe the store’s chargin’ almost $3.00 a pound fur a turkey tom lurkey. I’s didn’t even check to see what they were chargin’ fur hams. ‘Specially since the crazy peeps ‘round here just approved another couple of tax increases. (Raena shakes her head) I’s just don’t get it?. We already have the highest taxes of anypawdy at 10 purrcent and now they wanna go and add another 3/4’s cent to it.
Well then, Purrs With A Purr-Puss it is Raena. Maybe we can think of somethin’ else to go with it t’ween now and then. Me doesn’t know where these peeps get the money fur all these taxes. Anyways, as mommy always says, Ya’ can’t miss what ya’ don’t have.
True sissy, mommy says that a lot. So, ya’ wanna go play? I’s have a little time befur I’s need to get back to mine’s plannin’.
Sure Raena, me will play fur a bit. But, when me meows enuff, that’s it. Okay? Let me just link up with Comedy Plus fur Feline Furidays right quick and me will be right behind ya’. Don’t furget to send in your pawrty fotos to be included in the pawrty post and contest. Me hears Raena’s plannin’ a big surpurrise fur the winner.
MeOW C’mon Raena, it’s time fur our Blest Sunday posty. We’ve got so much to meow ‘bout today. And, we’re furinally rested up after havin’ stayed up all night and day fur 3 nights and 4 days straight with mommy. Altho’ ifin me’s meowin’ the truth, me must admit we all had a few cat naps in the sittin’ chair. Me’s purretty sure me heard mommy snorin’ a time or two befur joltin’ herself awake. Mommy keeps sayin’ she’s gettin’ to old fur these all nighters, and me totally agrees. Me’s way to old to be stayin’ up that many hours a day. Doesn’t she know us kitties need our beauty naps? Hmmmpht Me must’ve looked like somethin’ an old tabby cat would’a drug in after the second night, and me wouldn’t even wanna know what me must’ve looked like after the third.
Yeah sissy, I’s not a big fan of the all nighters. I’s need mine’s mommy and me cuddle time in the bed on the nice soft sweet smellin’ sheets. But, it seems the denture man at the new dentist office only comes once a week fur a couple of hours in the meownin’, so mommy has to be there really early so he can take the impressions back to the City with him. And since summer furinally arrived, mommy tries to do things either early in the day or late, so we’re not outside durin’ the hottest pawrt of the day. We’re so very fanky fankful to have air conditionin’ in the car, but mommy says nuffin’ works all that great in triple digit heat and she doesn’t want us to get sick and over heated.
Me’s a real mess. Me needs a good bath and a year of naps.
Yep Raena, we’re so Blest to have a mommy that cares ‘bout our well bein’ so much. Me’s so happy to have her as a mommy.
Really sissy? Cuz that’s not what you were meowin’ Furiday when mommy harnessed you up and strapped you into the stroller.
Me doesn’t wanna go to the V-E-T mommy.
Well Raena, me doesn’t ‘member you bein’ too happy ‘bout goin’ to the V-E-T the other day either. Me’s on to mommy’s tricks. She may call it a mommy and me day out, but when she’s all sneaky ‘bout the leavin’ time, me knows it can only mean one thing…Doctor Grabby and Stabby. Fankfully, me only got one jab and mommy says so long as me stays healthy, it’ll be the last stab fur 3 years. Seems Doctor Grabby and Stabby has furinally agreed to give us the 3 year rabies vaccination ‘stead of the one year.
Uh, Us, sissy? Wha’ch’a meowin’ ‘bout, us? I’s didn’t get jabbed with anythin’ on mine’s trip.
Maybe me can make me’s escape befur anypawdy sees me.
Just you wait Raena, your time’s a’comin’. Anyways, Doctor Grabby and Stabby said me was healthy and looked good. ‘Course, that made mommy really happy. So happy in fact, we stopped by the pet store fur some goodies. Mommy was gonna buy us 1 bag of those cheap treats (Kittles) we’ve eaten in the past, but they were on clearance fur .70¢, so she bought every bag they had.
Really sissy? Every bag? What do you wanna bet that we won’t eat any of ‘em? That’s the kitty way, right? Kitty likes somethin’, human goes nuts and buys out the store and kitty won’t touch it again. That’s one of the furst lessons you taught me.
C’mon mommy, me feels great. Let’s get outta here befur
somepawdy comes in.
Yeah Raena, that’s the rule. But, me thinks we oughtta at least eat a few bites to show our gratitude fur mommy at least tryin’. That’s another thing we kitties do. You know, gotta keep mommy on her toes and all.
Okay sissy, that sounds like a great plan. Ya’ know, we need to say a meowsy big Fanky fank you to awnty Susan fur the green papers. Havin’ so many ‘pointments out of town last week they came in really handy when mommy had to buy gas to get the car down the road. Hey, meowin’ of fanky fanks, I’s saw our furiend Valentine the handsum black Persian from Noir Kitty Mews, nominated us fur an award today.
Me saw it too Raena. He nominated us fur the SupawStars Spotlight Award. We’re so honored, fank you Valentine. We’re s’posed to nominate 5 bloggies to receive this award.
Only 5 sissy? Kittens!!! That’s so hard, we think all our furiends are SupawStars. Ya’ know, we don’t know fur sure who purrticipates in these kinds of things, so ifin we nominate you, you’re not obligated in any way to post; we’d just like to let others know ‘bout how special you are. Mine’s furst nomination is:
2. Feline Opines is mine’s second nomination. They’re a great bunch of kittes who recently wrote their own book, a devotional from a kitty’s point of view. Once things settle down a bit ‘round here, we’ll be havin’ ‘em over fur a play date to discuss said book. In the meantime, head over and check ‘em out.
It’s me’s turn Raena. Technically, me should’a went furst. Anyways…
3. Brian and the gang always bring a smile and they do so much to help kitties in need.
5. Da Phenny and his new housemate, Neilson. Ifin ya’ wanna laugh till ya’ cry and piddle in your pants, you can’t miss their bloggy.
I’s wanna pick some more furiends sissy. Who made these rules anyhow? Only 5…Hmmmpht!!!
Yeah Raena, we have so many pawsum furiends and the truth is, we think you’re all SupawStars. So, even ifin we didn’t lest you, purrlease feel furee to take the SupawStar award and post it on your bloggy. And ‘member to nominate 5 SupawStars of your own. We better get this wrapped up so we can try to visit our furiends and get caught up. But furst, we’d like to remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your life. You are all one of our greatest blessings and we fank God each and every day fur each of you.
We do sissy. Every day we purray and ask God to bless and keep all our furiends and their families. We luvs you all so very much. We’re also linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies.
