Hey dearest furiends, we hope y’all have had a meowvelous week. It’s been hot, hot, and more hot here. Thanky thankfully, we’ve mostly stayed inside under the old a/c. I’s do wanna thanky thank you all fur the gotchaday wishes. I’s one Blest kitty girl to have a loving mommy, the bestest furiends in the universe, and even Zebby.
We won’t be writin’ a lot today cuz mommy has that free exam at the dental clinic. But we did wanna update you all a bit. We told ya’ that last bad fall mommy took really did a number on her. She had the doctor take a look see on Monday, and he said she hadn’t broken anything. that was the good mews. She does have a huge knot and some general swelling that he said should get better in about 6 weeks or so. And then he told her that the falls were only gonna get worse as she gets older. Like she didn’t already know that. MOL
Anyways, we were really happy that most of ya’ were interested in followin’ the progress of AeroGarden. Let me tell ya’, that Raena is keepin’ a real close eye on everything. Y, Last night she tried to run off with another one of those caps. Fankfully mommy saw it all unfoldin’ and was able to grab the cap and replace it befur any damage could be done. But, fanks to Raenas’ watchful eye and antics, mommy realized that we have some sprouts. Yep, sure ‘nuff, we have some baby leaves and stems growin’. Mommy had missed it cuz those little caps are full of humidity with little water drops obscurin’ her vision. Like she needs anything else messin’ with her eyes. MOL
As to the who, that will go with mommy today, you’ll just have to wait and see. Me thinks me got more votes, but one of ya’ pointed out all the reasons you thought it should be me. Ya’ mentioned the chaos of Wally World, the uncertainty and length of the appointment, and mes superior calm demeanor in all situations. Unfurtunately, those are the exact reasons Raena should go. She needs to learn to be calm under pressure and in all situations while still purrfurming her duties. So it falls to mommy to decide who will get to go. How she’s feelin’ and what she thinks she can tolerate play a big part in her decision making.
A couple of you suggested we both go. So we thought we should explain why, that wasn’t a good idea. We would luv it and so would mommy. But, we both do the alert to a syncope incident, so mommy doesn’t need both of us in public. And the common sense and respect fur others comes into play. Mommy will be going to places that generally don’t allow pets/animals, but by law have to allow Service Animals. The actions of one purrson can affect all. So it’s better to take only one of us and remain low key, than to take both of us and insist they allow it. Ifin this was an overnight trip, that would be different, because it takes both of us to purrfurm the duties required. So, we’ll let ya’ know who and what happened in another posty.
We also wanted to address our cheater mac and cheater taters comments. We received an email that said we sounded ungrateful, which couldn’t be further from the truth. It was mostly said to give you all a giggle. Mommy has always called boxed and pre-packaged foods as “cheater” food cuz they’re easy peasy to make. Instead of grating 4 cheeses and baking in the oven fur an hour, cheater mac is made on the stove top in ‘bout 10 minutes. Instead of bakin’, roastin’ or boilin’ and mashin’ up taters, the “cheater” taters can be made on the stove top in less than 5 minutes. Mommy enjoyed the cheater mac and ‘specially those butter flavor taters. We have no clue who sent them to mommy, but we wanted to make sure we pawlogized ifin you thought we were ungrateful cuz that just isn’t true.
Well, we gotta go now, so mommy can get ready. We’ll be by when we can. We hope you’re all stayin’ warm and toasty.
Till da next time………………………………………Be Blest!!!
Luv and Hugs and Kitty Kisses

Meowllo everypawdy. We do hope you’re havin’ a good week. We’re still waitin’ fur things to calm down so we can get back to normal ‘round here. Me told ya’ dat mommy and me was gonna have a Dezi and mommy day out Monday since it was time fur her monthly doctor’s ‘pointment, but we also thought we’d be back to visitin’ on Tuesday. So much fur da bestest laid plans. When we got home Monday we found a notice on our door ‘bout an inspection today, Wednesday. And it was gonna be one of those every box checked inspections: Cleanliness, Check Smoke Alarms, Change Filters, Extermination and Occupied Dwelling. Now most of ya’ looked at dat list and said, “What in the world?” We know, cuz we do too.
Da manager used to try to pull all this off at 7:30 – 8:00 a.m., and she would write mommy up cuz she couldn’t get to da door. So a few years ago when we was havin’ all this trouble with da manager, da lawyer asked fur an accommodation dat would require them to wait till at least 10:00 a.m. to do these inspections. Mommy’s not at full function by then, but she can usually let somepawdy in da door. Well this of course made da manager mad, but all da other residents was happy. Nopawdy wanted their brekky interrupted by alarms goin’ off and bug spray everywhere. And me does mean everywhere. After da exterminator leaves everypawdy has to mop and re-clean. He just walks through sprayin’ at everythin’, includin’ things like coffee pots, ceilings, and we’ve heard a teevee or two. Anyways, da notice meant dat mommy would have to spend all day yesfurday gettin’ ready.
Yeah, yeah, me knows, you’re wonderin’ what happened to our ‘round da house helper dat mommy had gotten da okay to hire. Well let me see, where to begin…(Dezi thinks to herself for a minute) Well ‘bout a month ago now, mommy actually had 2 different peeps show up and apply fur da job. Mommy innerviewed both and liked ‘em both ‘bout da same. One was a younger stay at home mommy dat just wanted extra money and to get outta da house (this job would be purrfect fur somepawdy like dat). Da other, was a widow dat needed money to live. She’s workin’ fur several others cleanin’ their houses and bein’ paid cash (under da table money). Mommy made certain dat they both unnerstood they would be getting’ paid by da State of Oklahoma, and it would be a check with taxes taken out and everythin’. Both said dat was fine. So mommy sent their applications off to be approved. A couple weeks later mommy was told da younger of da two had been approved and they were still workin’ on da other.
So mommy called da girly to offer her da job. She even came fur her furst day. When she left, she said she’d be back tomorrow (her second day of work). Well tomorrow came and went and no girly. WTC (What The Cat) So mommy checked with da State lady and found out da other applicant had been approved too. So mommy called her to offer her da job. Her reply was no surprise to mommy, but it was aggravatin’. See, even tho’ da State is payin’ fur this, there’s a budget dat mommy has to follow. And outta dat budget, mommy has to pay da cost fur those background checks. So ifin a purrson doesn’t take da job, we’ve already spent money on them, and there’s only so many background checks mommy can have purr da budget. Anyways, she told mommy dat she really needed to be paid in cash, cuz she didn’t wanna lose her welfare. Yep, there’s somethin’ really wrong with our system, and peeps. But alas, we have no ‘round da house help…still.
Now let’s get back to dat inspection. Mommy did what she does and killed herself cleanin’ up and then da manger showed up at our ‘partment this meownin’ at 8:30 a.m.. She should be refreshed on da rules, since we just renewed our lease and went over da exceptions mommy has. Ya’ know dat 10 o’clock time frame. Well mommy just hollered dat she couldn’t walk and Raena and me gave da nasty manager da ole hiss of disapproval, and da manager went on her way. She knew she couldn’t push mommy or write her up, cuz she was breakin’ our lease. Dat exception is based on mommy’s disability cuz she can’t move early in da meownin’. So it turns out, mommy wasted yesfurday getting’ ready fur nuffin’. Oh yeah, a lot of ya’ are wonderin’ what Occupied Dwelling means, right? It just means dat da only peeps livin’ there are on da lease. We have a few peeps out here dat have peeps livin’ with them dat aren’t on da lease, but da manager lets them get away with it. Ifin it was us tho’, we’d be in all kinds of hot water. and me doesn’t mean a hot tub.
Me really doesn’t care, cuz me’s still walkin’ on clouds from me’s day out with mommy. Me had her all to meself and it was pawsum. Me meowed to mommy dat we were gonna have to do more of these now dat Raena lives with us. And mommy purromissed we would. Me so luvs spendin’ time with mommy. We went to da doctor’s office and then da farmacy. And da town where our farmacy is has a brand new Dollar General, so mommy decided to take me there. It’s really nice and clean; ‘course it’s new. MOL Then we went to da pawrk fur a few minutes befur returnin’ home. What a day. Me’s gonna wrap it up now and see ‘boiut getting’ some of those treats mommy and sis Raena brought home da other day.
Till da next time…………………………………Be Blest!!!

Meowllo everypawdy we be really busy today, so me will make it short and sweet. Now do you believe dat? Do you think me can keep it short? Mommy says me’s so chatty dat sometimes me drives her batty. She looks like mommy to me, but me doesn’t ‘zactly know what a “batty” is, so maybe me does drive her batty.
We had an inspection this meownin’ and mommy’s doctor’s ‘pointment this afternoon and then mommy’s case manager will be droppin’ by to get all da paperwork set up so mommy can hire one of da applicants we had. Looks like we’s finally gonna get some help ‘round here. Mommy says it’ll be ‘bout another month, but at least we’re on our way. As fur dat inspection, da manager sent out notices fur a cleanliness, occupied dwelling, and filter change inspection. But when she showed up, da exterminator was with her too. Mommy hadn’t planned on dat and da fountains was in da floor as well as me’s favorite toys. Mommy had just got some bug killer herself and used it (‘member da scorpion?). So mommy declined da sprayin’, she said too much poison at one time.
Anyways, me’s gotta go, mommy needs to take a shower and get dressed and she needs me’s help. Me will sure be glad when me gets some help too. So we’ll ketch up with all of ya’ as soon as we can. Purrlease ‘member to purray fur me tomorrow cuz me’s goin’ to da VET fur a yearly checkup and da required by law rabies shot. More poison mommy says, but da law is da law.
Till da next time……………………………..Be Blest!!!
