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.
Well it’s time fur another Blest Sunday. And this ain’t just any blest Sunday either. Nope sure isn’t. It’s Resurrection Sunday, or as most call it, Easter. We like da resurrection Sunday cuz it reminds us what this day is all ‘bout. We don’t celebrate with eggs or bunnies and mommy doesn’t even get chocolates fur herself. Well normally dat is. She found a dollar bag of tootsie rolls at da store da other day and picked ‘em up fur her to eat while me enjoyed me’s purresent from uncle Garth, awnty Mary Beth, Gizmo and da gang.
We are so blest to have so many wunnerful furiends. With all dat be goin’ on in this world we give thanks to God each day fur keepin’ us safe. And we ask Him everyday to keep His hands on and bless our furiends and all their furmilies too. Me just doesn’t unnerstand why some peeps can be so mean and have so little respect fur life. Havin’ experienced furst hand da loss of a dear luvved one, me can tell you dat each moment is purrecious. Me doesn’t wish fur anypawdy to have to go thru what me and mommy are goin’ thru. Mommy sez dat death is a part of life and dat everypawdy will experience it at one time or another. Me just wishes dat these terrorists wasn’t in such a hurry to make their furiends and furmilies and all those furiends and furmilies of da innocents they take with them to go thru this. We’s sendin’ purrayers to all those affected by these senseless acts of violence.
Now, on to somethin’ more pleasant. Me told you dat awnty Mary Beth told mommy to get me somethin’ special from her and da furmily when she went to pick up da catputer. Mommy thought long and hard ‘bout what me needed. And she thought ‘bout how me keeps hangin’ out in da pawdee box room lookin’ fur sissy. Mommy wanted to get somethin’ dat would make me focus me’s attentions else where. So after lookin’ ‘round and purrice checkin’, she found what she thought would be da purrfect gift fur da situation at hand. Mommy decided to get me a pet of me’s very own. Dat’s right, she got me me’s very furst ever Betta fish. He’s a real cutey, but me isn’t quite sure what to make of him. Sis Lexi had several Betta fishes throughout her life and a couple froggies too. But mommy decided one Betta fish was enuff fur us right now. After all we are still lookin’ fur me a new sissy and helper. We sure hope da nice lady from Texas dat called us has some good news in dat depawtment. Me will tell ya’ all ‘bout dat in another posty.
Well, like me sed, fishies aren’t strangers to mommy, but you woulda thought so, cuz she set everythin’ up all backwards. She set up da aquarium and filled it with water and then added me’s fishy befur realizin’ she hadn’t put da rocks down or da plants. So there she was dippin’ out water and usin’ straws to try to place da plants. And using da straw to scoot me’s fishy outta da way so she could pour in some rocks. And Nope, she couldn’t just take da fishy out cuz she furgot to buy a net and he’s a quick little escape artist. Anyways, rocks, plants and fishy in place, mommy stepped back to check it all out. Me jumped up on da table fur a better look see. Oh me cats, he looks so cute. Me can’t wait to have a new sissy to share him with. Mommy sez me has to give him a name cuz we can’t just keep callin’ him “fishy”. So me thought it would be really cool to ask you all to help me name him.
He seems to really like me. Every time me goes over to visit with him he comes right over to where me’s at and flares his little gills. MOL And he really likes his plants. Altho’, he’s not so crazy ‘bout them bein’ planted in da rocks. Fur some reason every time mommy gets them anchored he goes and digs ‘em up again. MOL So mommy finally sed they can just float. After all, da aquarium is his house. He oughtta have da last word on how da decoratin’ goes, right? Fank you so much awnty Mary Beth, uncle Garth, Gizmo and furmily. Me luvs me’s new fishy and aquarium.
We’s just ‘bout got all da fotos loaded on da catputer, so we shoud be by your place fur a visit startin’ tomorrow. We’s purretty far behind right now, but we’ll get caught up soon. We’s missd ya’ll so much. Member to take a minute today and everyday to give thanks fur da blessings in your life. Me’s gonna enter me and me’s fishy in da Sunday Selfies hosted by da Kitties Blue. Ifin ya’ haven’t linked up, go by and check it out. Have a blest Resurrection/Easter Sunday.
