Ho, Ho, Hey, it’s me, RaenaBelle. It’s Christmas Day!!! We are so Blest to have received so many pawsum Christmas cards and gifts. We purray you all have the most Blest Christmas ever. Fanky fank you fur bein’ our furiends. We luvs you all very much.
Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s got big plans. Seems mine’s latest business idea Purrs With A Purr-Puss is a big hit. Sissy, did you hear? Everypawdy thinks mine’s idea is great. We even had several kitties say they’d gladly purrvide the purrs. And, purrlenty of peeps said they’d pay fur those purrs. But, I’s thinkin’ we should add things to our menu; you know, like a la carte’ things they can ask fur. ‘Course there would be an additional charge fur these things. We’d have to be really careful who we sent on each job tho’. You know, some kitties get so x’cited, they’d give away the extras fur free, like drools and makin’ biskits and stuffs.
Well Raena, while me certainly agrees that your idea is a good one, just how do you think you’re gonna run a business, hire kitties, collect green papers and pay your employees?
So maybe there’s still a few kinks to work out sissy. But I’s think this is gonna be the bestest thing since sliced bonito flakes. Y, We might even be bigger than catnip!!! I’s can see it now, we’ll be rollin’ in dough. Our names will be in lights. We’ll be known as the Purr-Puss Queens. Can you see it? We’ll have billboards and branches all over the world!!! I’s meowed with Shoko and Tyebe ‘bout bein’ heads of our Canadian branch. And Erin, the Cat Princess is on board to head our across the pond branch in her region. So, we just need to get more kitties across the world to get on board. We’ll all be rich, rich, rich!!! Imagine the treats and nip and vine we can buy. (Raena rubs her paws together as she envisions piles of nip and silvervine)
Sure Raena. (Dezi shakes her head) You still haven’t addressed any of the things me brought up befur. So, are you takin’ applications? And what ‘bout all the purrs we give away every day? Do you expect mommy to start payin’? Cuz me’s purretty sure that ain’t gonna happen. Me’s also purretty sure awnty Jean ain’t gonna be payin’ Shoko and Tyebe either.
Really sissy? Are you sure, cuz I’s know mommy would want us to succeed. How would it look ifin we gave away our services to mommy fur free?
Well Raena, lots of businesses give furiends and families discounts. And lots of time those discounts mean free fur family.
Maybe sissy, but I’s saw a show on tv that said you can’t give away your product, even ifin it’s family. Otherwise, you’ll never make a profit.
You’ve got lots of things you really need to work out Raena. In the meantime, we’ve got other things we need to be workin’ on too. Do you realize the holidays are almost here? Me’s Birthday is just right ‘round the corner. Me wants to have a big celebration. Do you wanna help me plan it?
‘Course I’s wanna help sissy. But what ifin mommy was plannin’ on throwin’ you a surpurrise pawrty?
That’s okay, Raena. Me could have 2 pawrties. You know, one can never have too many pawrties. Anytime we spend with furiends is a good time.
Meowin’ of furiends sissy, I’s invited Prancie over fur a play date next week. She’s gonna bring a copy of her new book so we can host a give away. Isn’t that gonna be pawsum? I’s told mommy she needed to get herself together and get your sis Lexi’s book written, so we can write a book of our own. Maybe we could even write a book ‘bout mine’s new business venture.
RaenaBelle!!! ‘Nuff with the business stuffs. (Dezi shakes her head) Girl, you’re like a dog with a bone. You never let anythin’ go. Push, push, push, that’s all you do. Anyways, we do have lots to do, so we better wrap it up and finish our brekky. Me has plans fur a nice relaxin’ afternoon nip nap. Me just has to convince mommy to give me some nip furst.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaw Silvervine, you’re mines.
Nip? I’s want the nip and vine too sissy. Maybe ifin we both give mommy the sad face she’ll give in. C’mon, let’s go see.
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.
MeOW C’mon Raena, it’s Blest Sunday. Time to count our many Blessings fur the week. In spite of all the boom, boom, booms of fireworks, no kitty spent any time UTB (under the bed) here. We quite surpurrised mommy. Me thinks there were a couple of times when she was actually holdin’ her breath and tryin’ to purrtend she didn’t hear anythin’ so we’d ignore it too. Our town put on their little big fireworks extravaganza last night. The boomers seemed to go on furever, but we just ignored them and chilled with mommy.
Yep sissy, mommy was quite purrleased with us. I’s even caught her smilin’ once when she thought we weren’t lookin’. I’s don’t know why she was surpurrised tho’, nuffin’ scares me.
Oh yeah, the big bad brave RaenaBelle, conqueror of all in her teeny big world. Hmmmmmpht Some times you can be a real show off. There’s nuffin’ wrong with bein’ scared now and then. Fear can be a good thing. Ya’ know, like bein’ ‘fraid of mommy’s jet ski sized feet steppin’ on your tail or her’s jumbo hiney splattin’ ya’ when she falls. Bein’ ‘fraid means you know when to get outta the way.
Why would ya’ be ‘fraid of mommy, sissy? She’d never hurt us.
‘Course not Raena, least not on purr-puss. But, sometimes she doesn’t watch where she’s steppin’, and you know she doesn’t have any control over where she lands when she falls. A little fear never hurt any kitty.
Whatever sissy, I’s purrfur mine’s way better. I’s trust mommy no matter what.
Well Raena, that’s why you got your tail stepped on the other day.
To be honest sissy, it wasn’t actually mine’s tail she stepped on. She only caught a few strands of the tippy end of mine’s tail furs. Besides, she cried and ‘pawlogized and gave me lots of extra luvvin’ afterwards. We would have even got some treats but you know we’re not eatin’ ‘em cuz she bought out the store. What kitty wants cheap treats when there’s purrlenty in the house? Anyways, we’re s’posed to be countin’ our Blessings. I’s meow our furst Blessing is that we have a pawsum luvvin’ furever home. This past week it’s been hotter than a fryin’ pan, stormed and raged and been full of silly humans pawppin’ those fireworks; and we didn’t have a care in the world. We were inside with the cool a/c loungin’ ‘bout and enjoyin’ the good life.
Ain’t that the truth Raena. And fanks to awnty Vonda, we had a bar-b-que sammich, smashed taters with cheese and a watermelon fur our celebration.
Oh sissy, that bar-b-que sammich was so tasty. I’s fanky fankful mommy shared, but I’s could’a ate a whole sammich mine’s self. I’s didn’t have any of the taters, but I’s do luvs me some cheese. And, that was mine’s furst ever watermelon. It was really purretty yummy too. Who’d’ve thought we kitties would like such a thing?
Yep Raena, watermelons are purretty tasty, but me sure does have to pee a lot after eatin’ ‘em. Mommy says they’re one of her favorite foods. We used to have ‘em every summer when me was a kitten. Anyways, we had a great celebration. Me hopes all our furiends did too. We were reminiscin’ this past week ‘bout our lives befur we got a catputer and innernet. We are so Blest to have met so many amazin’ peeps and anipals, and we never wanna go back to the way things were befur.
We sure don’t sissy. I’s wasn’t even alive in those days. But, I’s can’t ‘magine what mine’s life would be like without all our furiends, and I’s don’t even wanna try.
Me neither Raena, me neither. Hey, did you see where mommy read that story ‘bout coffee?
You mean the one that said peeps who drink coffee appear to live up to 5 years longer than peeps who don’t drink coffee? Yep sissy, I’s saw that. I’s guess we might oughtta let her enjoy a cup ever once in a while, huh?.
Uh, Maybe you oughtta heed your own meows Raena. After all, it wasn’t me inneruptin’ her the last couple of meownings. Me was purrfectly happy to let her finish a cup while it was still hot.
Well sissy, ifin you had used the litter box ‘stead of the piddle pad, I’s wouldn’t have had to ask her to clean it up right away. Anyways, she made another cup, so technically she got to finish her coffee. Let’s wrap this up, I’s wanna play.
‘Course you do Raena. Don’t you ever get tired? (Raena grabs a nip filled mouse and runs through the house chortlin’ and chirpin’.) Guess that answers that one. We’d like to fank you all fur bein’ our furiends. We luv you all very much. We’d also like to remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your life.
(Raena runs to the living room and stops briefly) Don’t furget, we’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies.
Till the next time…………………………………………………………Be Blest!!!
