Anyways, today will be short and sweet cuz me knows a lot of ya’ watch dat ball game called da Super Bowl. Now we aren’t into sports here at our house so we don’t have a clue ‘bout who be playin’ what, but we do like a little kitten bowl. And we even went on over to da Hallmark site and made us up a kupple playin’ cards.

Me wuld like to ask you fur sum purrayers fur sis Lexi. She started havin’ sum pee purroblems last night and isn’t feelin’ real good today. When we see da blood in da urine we know sissy must be in sum pain and it breaks our hearts dat we can’t just take it away and make her feel better right away. But God can, and we purreciate all da purrs and purrayers we can get.

Golden Rule Wednesday

“Class, today me wants to tell you ‘bout a little ole sayin’ dat shuld rule your life.”  

Dezi in the lecture hall

Sorry furiends, me knows you didn’t come by here fur a lecture. So let me ‘splain meself here. We were given da 3 day quote challenge by our dear furiends over at da 4 legged furballs aka The Menagerie Mom. Ifin ya’ haven’t met ‘em yet you shuld head on over when ya’ finish here and check ‘em out. Now don’t you be leavin’ just yet tho’, me hasn’t finished ‘splainin’ meself. As sissy, mommy and me discussed what our quote fur today wuld be, it started soundin’ more like a lecture than a discussion. Mommy feels very strongly ‘bout quite a few things, and how to treat others is one of ‘em.

 

Now da rules of da challenge are as follows: 

1. Post fur 3 consecutive days

2. Choose and share one or 3 quotes everyday 

3. Challenge 3 additional bloggers each day 

 

So me’s quote fur today is:

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

You may know it as Da Golden Rule. This little quote goes all da way back to Bible times and can be found in Matthew 7:12. Dat dusn’t guarantee dat others are always gunna be nice to you, but it also dusn’t mean you shuld stoop to their level. Da bestest thing you can do in a situation where you can’t be nice to sumpawdy is to just say and do nuffin’. Remove youself from their purresence and avoid them when pawssible. Me is gunna leave this challenge open to all of ya’. Me knows quite a few of ya’ have already taken da challenge, so ifin you haven’t yet and want to, consider yourself challenged. Ifin yous already dun it and wuld like to again, purrlease do.  

Dezi and Lexi laying together on the bed

Me wuld like to give you all a little sis Lexi update cuz a lot of ya’ have been askin’. She has kept down her noms fur a kupple of days now. We are so very happy fur dat. She seems to be feelin’ a bit better as well. Mommy started feedin’ her less food at a time, but more frequent meals. Weez not sure ifin she ate too much at one time or ifin she got a bad can of noms. Eever is pawssible, and at this point we just purray da throw ups are over. Of course we wuld purreciate yous continued purrayers. Me wuld also like to ask you to purray fur a furiend of ours. Timmy tomcat’s brofur Buddy Budd isn’t eatin’ like he shuld. Uncle Pete’s been tryin’ all da normal tips and tricks and has even added an appetite stimulant. Buddy just turned 16, so he needs to eat to keep his muscles and body goin’. So ifin you can spare a few purrayers fur Buddy Budd and his furmily we know they wuld purreciate it.

 

Well dat’s all me has fur today, so “Class Dismissed.” MOL  

 

Do you strive to treat others the way you want to be treated?

 

Till da next time………………………………………..Be Blest!!!

You know weez blest each and every day, but we chose Sunday to talk ‘bout it cuz it’s also da day set aside when peeps gather togevver and worship God. A little known fact is dat mommy be a ordained minister. One of our furiends sed dat our Sunday posties made a lot more sense when she found dat out. So weez fawt weez wuld fwo it out there in case anypawdy else was wunnewin’. Anyways, as me sed weez be blest every day but this past week had us getting’ a few extwa blessins.

As you all know mommy be tech challenged. We have an awnty what’s posed to live in Austin, but she’s been away teachin’ English in Slovakia. Slovakia, can yous believe it? She’s been twyin’ fur years to get us to chat wiff hers on Skype, but mommy just can’t seem to figger da silly fing out. So when we got da message dat she was gunna be back in da states and wanted to meet up wiff us, we was all kinds of ‘cited. And we fawt maybe she kuld teach mommy how to use da Skype so dat when she left again we kuld talk to her this time. So da awwangements was all planned out and we waited wather impatiently patiently to finally meet up wiff awnty Lizbeth. Hers name is actually Elizabeth but sissy and me call hers awnty Lizbeth. So on Tuesday when she called to say she was on hers way, our hearts stawrted racin in anticipation. When she awwived she had bwought a furiend wiff her, so we ended up wiff 2 awnties stead of one. MOL Awnty Sonia be a burd purrson, but dat’s okay weez not mind.

 

It's nice to meet you ladies. Seems I came to visit at the right time. MOL
Flat Scout Sammy P: It’s nice to meet you ladies. Seems I came to visit at the right time. MOL

Awnty Lizbeth bwought us sum tweats and sum Sheba noms, and a whole lot of plastic bags fur mommy to use fur twash bags. We was all ‘cited over our gifts. And twuly blest to be meetin’ wiff her fur to face. Even flat scout Sammy P got in on da foto action cuz he awwived on Monday. After a way too short visit awnties Lizbeth and Sonia took mommy out to eat. Mommy finally had sumwhere nice to wear one of da pawsum new outfits dat awnty Jennifer and gwand awnty Peggy sent her. Mommy so enjoyed da meal and da conversation. Many Fanks awnty Lizbeth fur all da goodies and fur bein’ so nice to mommy and takin’ hers fur a gweat meal.

We’ll Be Purrayin’

Meowllo everypawdy weez comin’ to ya’ fwum a flooded Oklahoma. MOL Well nuffin’ worked yesfurday so we never got meez posty out. And let me tell you da night afur…it sounded like da stowm was in da house. Even mommy and sissy was a little fwaid. It had been funderin’ sumfin’ pawful when we finally got a little bweak. Or so we fawt. Mommy had turned da teevee up weally loud hopin’ to drown out da sound of da funder so me kuld come outta hidin’ and eat, and she had gone to da kitchen to wash dishes. She had da water on full blast and da gawbage disposal runnin’ and suddenly she heard a bangin’ and it seemed like da whole house was bein’ shook. Mommy yelled fwum da kitchen weally loud so hers kuld be heard over all da extwa noises, “Just a minute.” See da bangin’ was so loud she fawt sumpawdy was knockin’ on da door. 

dw Dezi lays head off top1

So she turned da gawbage disposal and water off and stawted to dwy hers hands when da bangin’ and quakin’ house stawted again. And OMC she learned there wasn’t anypawdy at da door, dat was FUNDER!!! But just in case she went on over to da door and opened it up just in time fur a flash of lightnin’ to light up hers face. It was comin’ wight at her. So she hurriedly closed da door and looked wound fur Lexi and me. We was there, wight behind her, but we was boff weady to run. MOL So wiff all dat goin’ on mommy told me we wuld write meez posty da next mownin’ (yesfurday). And then meownin’ came and mommy kuld barely get wound.

dw Dezi treetop00fr

But she purromised we wuld get me a posty written. After all we had a pawrt 2 to finish up. But there seemed no end in sight to all da funderin’ and lightnin’ and rain. But mommy purromissed and ifin you can get mommy to say “I purromise,” then you can bet it’ll happen lessen God or an act of God purrvents it. So mommy turned on da puter and we stawrted writin’. We don’t have to be connected to write meez posties, fank catness or we kuldn’t have got it dun. But while we was writin’ da stowrms reared their ugly head again. Da power started flickerin’ and so mommy pawlogized and shut it down. Me unnewstood, after all me wanted to hide stead of write and visit. MOL So, we will be postin’ pawrt 2 later but today we have a request posty we wanna write.

 dw Lexi1439

See there’s lots of kitties and udder anipals in da blogosphere dat be sick. So many dat me kuldn’t even begin to list ‘em all. So me won’t attempt too. But me will ask dat you purray fur all yous furiends. We recently lost a furiend dat we didn’t even know was sick, so sumtimes yous never know sumpawdy needs da purrayers. But ifin yous keep ‘em in yous purrayers every day it won’t matter. They’ll be covered. Now last night me got a email fwum meez handsum mancat Andy. Hims furmily is weally havin’ a ruff time wight now. Hims sisfur Cali had been actin’ a little diffewent; like she was in pain. Usin’ da floor stead of da pawdee box. So off to da VET they went. It scared Andy so much dat hims was hidin’ out UTB (unner da bed). See us kitties still have a little of da wild in us and when one of us is sick, we twy to distance ourselves fwum them. We may be purredators but we can also become purrey, and sick means weak to a kitty. Mommy sez she’s seen this happen way too many times. And of course in a house wiff more than 1 kitty when 1 goes sumwhere (specially da VET) and comes home, they don’t smell like us anymore and it sumtimes scares us. So Andy wanted no pawrt of hims sisfur yesfurday. But we also know dat da sick kitty only wants to be wiff his/her furmily and be luvved.  

Meez handsum Andy

So anyways, to da VET Cali went. A few tests later and da bad news came. She has bone cancer in hers leg. On a hooman it wuld be da calf area, but weez kitties not have calves, so it’s just hers leg. Now Cali’s no yung kitty (12 years) so there be complications and only a few options fur tweatment. Da VET sent them home wiff 2 weeks worff of steroids to twy and ease hers pain. And told there’s 3 options fur tweatment. Da furst bein’ surgery to amputate da offendin’ limb. Again, she’s not a yung healffy kitty so this option kuld be very risky. Lots of tests wuld need to be purrfurmed to make sure she’s even a candidate fur goin’ unner da knife. Da second option is to twy and make hers comfy till da cancer eats her up and she goes to heaven. And da furd is to help her go on to heaven now. We don’t fink those awe very good choices, but dat’s what there is. So, ifin yous all wuldn’t mind sendin’ up a few extwa purrayers fur sweet Cali and Andy’s furmily we wuld purreciate it and we fur sure know they wuld too. Meez Andy not have a bloggy, but hims duz read mine. So ifin yous inclined to leave a good word or fawt, meez certain hims will see it and da furmily will be comfurted.
