Hey everypawdy, it’s RaenaBelle. We sure hope you’ve all had a Blest week. Let me tell ya’, we’ve sure been purrayin’ hard fur the state of our nation. Anyways, it’s Blest Sunday, and we wanna Give Thanky Thanks fur our Blessings this week. Like most weeks there’s been some not so good things…
Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Hurry, gather ‘round, our playdate guest will be here any minute now. (Raena frantically surveys her kingdom to make sure everything’s picked up and clean. She wants her playdate to feel welcome) Sissy, are you ready, Prancie’s gonna be here soon?. Why don’t you ask mommy ifin we can put some silvervine down on the scratchers. I’s bet Prancie would luvs that.
Raena, calm down. Me’s sure Prancie will have fun. Besides, we’re gonna have a story time with her new book. You know, the one awnty Ellen sent us to review. There’ll be purrlenty of time to play later. Now, help me set up our tunnel pawtal so she doesn’t smack into the door. (Dezi and Raena get the tunnel set up and have a quick bath before Prancie arrives. Suddenly they hear the swoosh of the portal) Hurry Raena, she’s here!!!
Hey Prancie, good to see ya’ girl. How was your trip? Wanna lay down on the scratcher and rest a minute? We’ve been lookin’ furward…
RaenaBelle!!! Calm down, let her ketch her breath fur kittens sake. Sorry ‘bout her Prancie, she only has one speed and it’s full on all the time.
No problem Dezi, there’s a few of those at my house too. With so many siblings, you can always count on mayhem. And in the 13 years I’ve lived at my house, I’ve seen it all. Thanks for inviting me over girls, I’m happy to be here. This scratcher is pretty comfy.
It is, isn’t it Prancie. Besides mommy’s lap, it’s purrobably our next favorite seat. So, do have any besties at your house?
Well Raena, Phoebe and I hit it off right from the start. I pretty much get along with everybody, but yeah, I’d say Phoebe was my bestie. She is missed. (Prancie drifts off in memory for a minute)
Let’s meow ‘bout your book fur a minute Prancie. We luvved readin’ your story. Altho’ me has to admit, it made us very sad that somepawdy could kick you out into the cold mean streets. We’re such pam-purred pusses, we can’t even ‘magine what you must’ve went thru.
It was quite a shock to me too Dezi. It got so cold, and I was so hungry, I almost gave up. My ears were so cold and then they weren’t. Part of them died and fell off. It sure was a rough life. When I saw that manger with fresh hay part of me wanted to just curl up in it and die. But, when I saw the people who would become my forever family, a little spark of hope welled up inside me and gave me the strength to ask God and them for help.
Ooh Ooh, that’s mine’s second favorite pawrt, Prancie. Mine’s favoritest pawrt is when awnty Ellen and uncle David adopted you and let you stay with them.
Well Raena, my dad wasn’t my biggest cheerleader at first. But, I finally wrapped him around my paws. I’m a big daddy’s girl for sure. One of my favorite things is the chicken he feeds me off his plate. As you all would say, I’m one blest kitty, that’s for sure.
I’s luvs the pics.
You sure are Prancie. I’s know sissy and me are so Blest to have you and your whole family as furiends. We think your ears give you character. We know ya’ll didn’t include the story of your ears in your book, but we’re glad you meowed ‘bout ‘em here. Peeps need to unnerstand, that just cuz we kitties have furs doesn’t mean we don’t get cold and suffer from weather the same as they would. We think your book would make a purrfect gift fur any occasion. And, with Christmas comin’ soon, we hope it makes it unner the tree fur lots of little humans.
We should tell everypawdy where they can get their own copy girls. It’s available on amazon and Barnes and Noble fur $12.95. And, peeps can also order it directly from you and awnty Ellen at 15andMeowing.com fur $10.00. You can also get the kindle version fur $2.99. All proceeds go to help suppurrt all the kitties livin’ with Prancie and awnty Ellen.

Fanky fank you Prancie and awnty Ellen. We luvs give aways. We hope all our U.S. readers get in on this. And fanky fank you fur comin’ fur a playdate. We totally luvved your book. We also learned that awnty Ellen has a degree Elementary Education and that’s what sparked her idea to write your story as a children’s book. Like ya’ll, we believe that all kitties and even woofies deserve luvvin’ furever homes. The ‘purrtant thing to ‘member, is that kitties don’t act out of spite. There’s no bad kitty. Like Prancie, we purray that all anipals know the luvs and warmth of a furever home. And now, it’s time to play!!!
Dezi: MeOW C’mon Raena, it’s time fur Blest Sunday. You can finish eatin’ brekky in a minute.
Raena: You meow that sissy, but the minute I’s walk away, you’ll be movin’ in on mine’s plate and tryin’ to chow it down. Besides with the mess we’ve got goin’ on ‘round here, I’s wasn’t sure we had any Blessings to count this week.
RaenaBelle!!! Bite your tongue!!! Besides, me never steals your food…(Dezi mumbles slyly.) Least not while mommy’s lookin’.
No, sissy!!! That would hurt. And, you do it all the time. Mommy’s always tellin’ you to get outta mine’s plate.
(Dezi shakes her head) Purrlease Raena, it’s just a figger of speech. We have purrlenty of Blessings to count, no matter what’s goin’ on ‘round here. We have the bestest most pawsumest furiends in the universe. And, we have a mommy that luvs us more than anythin’ else in the afur mentioned universe. We’ve found our furevers Raena. No matter what, mommy will never ever leave us or throw us away. Mommy says that altho’ it’s been a while, this wouldn’t be the furst time she’s had to live in her car and Shad never left her side or went hungry. Ifin you’d like to read that story you can do so here. Besides, mommy says we’re not out on the streets just yet.
I’s luvs mine’s toys too.
You’re right sissy. I’s luvs our furiends. And I’s luvs mommy soooooo much. I’s never doubted that she’d be there fur us no matter what. And, her new dentists’ ‘pointments are movin’ along nicely. This week she’ll be tryin’ out a wax form with teethies in it. And, the doctor’s been the one doin’ the work. There’s always an assistant in the room, but Dr. Collier’s seen mommy and made all the impurrsions and adjustments at each ‘pointment. Y, She’s so x’perienced at dentures, one of the other doctors even came and asked her advice last week. It made mommy feel really good and like she’s furinally in good hands.
Yep Raena, me’s so happy ‘bout that. Mommy said Dr. Collier’s really nice and she even believes in rescue. She has two rescued woofies and the rest of her furmily has woofies and kitties that they’ve rescued too. We think it was her sisfur that adopted a stray kitty what came to her house lookin’ fur food and shelter. We always get x’cited when we hear stories ‘bout some kitty or woofy findin’ their purrfect furever.
So true sissy, so true. Ya’ know, we might not always get along like peas in a pod, but I’s wouldn’t want any other sisfur or mommy. I’s thinkin’ mine’s life is purretty close to purrfect. So, that means you’re right ‘bout the Blessings too. I’s got purrlenty to give fanky fanks fur. I’s got so much luvs that sometimes mine’s heart feels like it could explode. And, I’s got a full belleh with some of the tastiest noms on the planet.
Hmmmmm Really Raena? So does that mean you’re thru with your brekky?
Since Raena’s belly’s so full, she won’t mind ifin me just
finishes off this little bit she left.
Nope sissy, that doesn’t mean you can eat outta mine’s plate. I’s might wanna go back fur another bite in a minute. You know I’s have to check out what’s goin’ on outside. Ifin I’s just stayed with mine’s head down in mine’s plate, I’s might miss somethin’. Y, I’s saw all kinds of things this meownin’. I’s saw a few birdies, a gnat, a moth…(While Raena rambles on, Dezi sneaks over to her breakfast plate and eats a few bites. Raena looks back from the perch at the door to see Dezi eating the last few bites of her breakfast…) Sissy!!! Get outta mine’s plate or I’s gonna tell mommy.
What? You meowed your belly was full?. Anyways, let’s wrap this up and give mommy some extra luvvin’. Me knows she could sure use some.
Nope, this ain’t our selfie, that’s above. MOL
Great idea sissy. Befur we go we gotta link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies.
Fanks Raena. We’d also like to remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your life. No matter what may be happenin’ around you, each day you wake up and take a breath, is a Blessing. Fank you all fur bein’ a pawrt of our lives.
