Blest Sunday Surprise
Meowllo and welcome to a very Blest Sunday. Of course every Sunday is very blest to us, but mommy’s so happy and purroud today dat she said this isn’t just any Blest Sunday. Now you all know dat we feel so blest to have all of you in our lives. We could have never ‘magined havin’ so many wonderful furiends. Thank you sooooooo much fur bein’ you. Me knows, you want me to get to da mommy happy and purroud pawrt don’t ya’?
Well as ya’ know this is Independence Day weekend here in da U.S.. And Americans just can’t help but wanna set off fireworks, even tho’ they be illegal within da city/town limits. And of course da town has to have a big celebration where they set off huge fireworks dat make a lot of noise. As most of ya’ know from years past, me takes this oppurrtunity to hide under anywhere me can get to. It makes mommy sad dat me does this, but it’s just da way it is. Well this is Raena’s furst year fur fireworks, and mommy had no idea how she would handle it. Of course mommy hopes dat Raena will ignore things like firewoks and thunder storms and all loud scary noises. Well, on furiday night da neighbors set off a few dat sounded mostly like a car backfire, so to mommy’s surprise me ignored them and so did Raena. But last night was da real test.
Yep, last night da town put on it’s big fireworks show. We live a couple miles from da place they set them off, but they were loud enuff fur us to hear them through da closed doors and windows. And da flashes of colored lights could be seen through our mini blinds. When they started da show Raena had been sleepin’ up on da cat tree and me had been getting a drink from da fountain on da bathroom vanity. One loud boom. Two loud booms and Raena’s head pawpped up. Mommy held her breath as she told Raena dat everythin’ was alright. Third loud boom and…Raena put her head back down and went to sleep. Mommy let out dat breath she was holdin’ and suddenly me appeared. Mommy took another deep breath and held it. Me peeked ‘round da corner of da table sittin’ by her chair and then up at Raena. Fourth big boom and me held me’s ground all da while starin’ at Raena. Hmmmmmmm She ain’t payin’ any attention to dat noise me thought. And, she seems just fine. So me went over to mommy fur a little luvvin’ and to let her know she could breathe again. And then me settled in and started playin’. Yep, sure ‘nuff, me played ‘stead of hidin’ out fur da whole hour of noisy fireworks. Mommy is sooooooo purroud of me…and Raena too of course.
But, it didn’t stop there. Later last night, we had a thunderstorm. Yep, all dat gun powder shot in da skies caused it to rain. Mommy says dat’s not why, but you can’t prove it by me. Anyways, we had a big ole thunderstorm, and Raena and me both slept right through it. Mommy’s so purroud and happy today dat we both got treats befur brekky. Treats befur brekky!!! We never get treats befur brekky, but we did this meownin’.
Don’t furget how well I take mines medicine sis Dezi.
Uh, yeah, thanks fur remindin’ me Raena. As you can see in da fotos, Raena’s eyes and nose are still givin’ her some purroblems, so she’s takin’ this yucky sticky medicine to clear it up; and mommy says dat Raena’s a real champ and takes her medicine without any fights or arguments. So it’s a very Blest Sunday indeed. And we wanna fank awnty Anonymous fur da green papers to pay fur Raena’s VET visit. Mommy believes all kittens, puppies and other baby animals should get their baby core vaccinations. Beyond dat, is up to you and your VET and maybe da law. So dat means we have recurring visits fur Raena every 3 weeks. She has 2 more visits befur she’ll be thru, and then she’ll need a spay around October when she’s 6 months old. Mommy doesn’t like to do them any younger.
Anyways, me’s gonna wrap it up fur today. We wanna pawlogize fur not commentin’ much this weekend. Mommy’s had a really bad pain in her lower back dat sends a sharp shooting pain thru her body everytime she leans furward to type. So we’s been visitin’ and readin’, we just didn’t do much commentin’. Hopefully she’ll feel better soon. We’s joinin’ da Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. Sis Raena got a few lap selfies as you can see, so she wanted to join up and show off. Me’s selfie was taken last night after da fireworks. Me’s chillaxin’ and doesn’t have a care in da world. ‘Member to take a minute today and everyday to give thanks fur da many blessings in your life.
Have you heard any fireworks in your area yet?
Are you brave or a hider?
Do you like to watch the fireworks displays?
Till da next time……………………………….Be Blest!!!
Luv and Hugs and Kitty Kisses

Now on to Independence day. All over America peeps awe celebwatin’ today wiff BBQ’s, fire boomers. booze and furiends. But weally it’s all ‘bout a little document called da Declaration of Independence. Da founding fathers of da U.S.A (then only 13 colonies) awthored and signed into law a document of listing certain inalienable wights and gawanteein’ fweedom fwum da tyranny of da Queen of England and all udder governments. They was establishin’ our government. Dat original document has been ammended a few times fwuout da years, but it still holds twu today. Peeps, wake up, don’t let this or any government take away da wights da founding fathers and God gave you and da blood of so many bought you. Happy Independence day to you all.
