Blest Sunday: The Internet Can Be A Blessing

Dezi:  MeOW  C’mon Raena, it’s Blest Sunday and we’ve been MIA since Wednesday. Me’s not sure ifin our furiends missed us or not, but we sure missed them. 

 

Raena sits in box

 

 

 

          Raena:  Yeah sissy, I’s guess we’re gonna have to start tellin’ peeps that we can’t post on mommy’s doctor days. Since the whole lease fiasco when the manager harassed mommy’s doctor’s office, she just gets so stressed out, she can’t help us do anythin’.

Dezi:  It’s not just that Raena, the doctor keeps messin’ with mommy’s medicines and blamin’ some imaginary rules. Anyways, we’ll just have to figger somethin’ out so we don’t just disappear. Maybe mommy can try to schedule our posty to publish without us bein’ here. 

 

          Raena:  That’s a good idea sissy. But, the last time she scheduled a posty to post without us, it totally disappeared into cyberspace. I’s don’t think she’s ever found that posty. Sometimes the innernet’s not so smart. 

 

Dezi stands in box

 

 

 

Dezi:  Well Raena, mommy says the innernet’s only as smart as the humans who purr-ogram it.

 

 

Raena lays in mommy's lap and get love

 

 

 

          Raena:  Well sissy, ifin that’s the case, ya’ reckon mommy lost our posty and not the innernet? 

 

Luv ya' Dezi
Luv ya’, Dezi (one of the furst fotos we ever posted on me’s bloggy.)

 

 

Dezi:  Me’s not sure Raena, but me ain’t gonna be the one askin’. Anyways, we’re gettin’ off track here. Smart or not, the innernet’s been a big Blessin’ fur us. Cuz of the catputer and the innernets we’ve made loads of amazin’ furiends. Who would’a thought 5 years ago when we got our very furst catputer, we’d be where we are today?. You weren’t ‘round then, but me ‘members mommy was so cautious and ‘fraid that everypawdy was somepawdy other than who they said they were, and that everypawdy was out to give her a virus or somethin’, that she wouldn’t hardly spend any time on it. She fur sure never visited any fun sites.

          Raena:  Oh sissy, and the camera ya’ll had. (Raena shakes her head) The other day I’s saw some of the fotos and videos ya’ll posted back then. Those were pawful. Mommy fur sure ain’t no purrfessional when it comes to the foto takin’, but at least she’s learned a few things thru the years. And, the camera got better.  

 

Dezi:  That’s true Raena. ‘Course, mommy had cats and rats (cataracts) back then, so she had no idea how blurry and grainy our fotos were…the whole world was blurry to her. MOL 

 

          Raena:  MOL  (Both Dezi and Raena burst out laughing)  Yeah sissy, now she just blames it on old eyes. But ya’ know what? I’s don’t care how old mommy’s eyes are, I’s luvs her and am so Blest to have her as mine’s mommy.

 

Dezi get love laying on the chair arm

 

 

 

Dezi:  Me too Raena. We also got some goody Blessings this week we need to say fank you fur. We sure do ‘purreciate all of our furiends. and we wanna fank awnty Susan fur the green papers and her furiendship. 

 

Cheese gift from Cindy

Fanky fank you awnty Cindy. I’s luvs me some cheese.

 

 

 

          Raena:  We sure do sissy. And we wanna meow fanky fank you to awnty Cindy fur sendin’ us some goodies and new boxes to play in. You know how much we kitties luvs our boxes. I’s had a great paper bag I’s was playin’ with till mommy threw it out. She said it was all squished and wouldn’t stay open any more. Fur some reason she thought that meant it wasn’t fun. (Shakes head and looks over at the trash can) Sometimes mommies just don’t get it.

 

Dezi:  Well Raena, you did put that paper sack thru it. Me’s sure mommy will get you another one ifin ya’ liked it that much. Mommy always says ifin we’re happy then she’s happy. Me’s purretty sure we even have a box with a couple of those paper sacks ‘round here somewhere. ‘Member the time mommy thought she was gettin’ a really cool toy fur us fur the cheap, and it turned out to be a box of paper sacks? All ya’ gotta do is find that box. MOL 

 

          Raena:  Really sissy? I’s gonna go look fur it now. 

 

Dezi lays on the arm of the chair

 

 

 

Dezi:  You do that Raena. Me’s gonna wrap this up. The truth is, there purr-obably are lots of peeps who aren’t who they say they are and want to take advantage of others. But, fur us, the innernet’s been a huge Blessing and opened up a world with a lot of amazin’ anipals and peeps that we would have never known without it. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your life. And fank you all fur bein’ a Blessing in ours.

Dezi: You’ve always gotta have the last meow, don’ch’a Raena?

Blest Sunday: Blessings Floor To Ceiling And Beyond

Dezi:  MeOW  HiSsssssssss RaenaBelle!!! Quit jumpin’ on me!!! 

 

Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

 

 

          Raena:  I’s didn’t jump on you sissy, I’s jumped over you. I’s was in a hurry to get to the purrch. I’s thought I’s saw somethin’ outside. 

 

Dezi sit on cat tree and Raena sits on small perch while looking out the door

 

 

 

Dezi: Ya’ still need to stop. How many times has mommy told you to slow down Raena? Besides, it’s Blest Sunday and was time fur brekky. What ifin mommy had a been tryin’ to bring us our plates at that very minute? Y, All our food would’a ended up on the floor. We’re not heathens, we don’t eat off the floor. 

 

Dezi and Raena eating

 

 

 

          Meow fur yourself sissy, sometimes I’s find all kinds of yummy things on the floor. Y, Just the other day mommy dropped a piece of cheese in the kitchen when she was makin’ her smashed tater with cheese. Ifin I’s hadn’t grabbed it up when I’s did, she would’a throwed it in the trash. What a waste that would’a been. I’s luvs me some cheese. Ya’ know our china platters are fine, but I’s not gonna miss an oppurr-tunity to eat me somethin’ tasty just cuz it’s not served with silver and gold trimmins. See, sometimes you can find Blessings on the floor. Just be careful it’s food and not a bug. 

 

(Dezi shakes her head) Oh Raena, sometimes me just doesn’t know what to do with you. 

 

          Oh sissy, just luvs me. You know you were just like me once. Mommy says so. She says when you were young you couldn’t wait fur her to open the door in the meownin’ and put the purrch in front of it. She says you used to sit on it fur hours and chirp and chortle at anythin’ that came by. 

 

Dezi sits on small perch looking outside

 

 

 

 

Yeah Raena, me did. It seems so long ago now. It also seems like there was more to see back then. We used to have stray kitties and all kinds of wildlife play on our porch. It’s gotten so hot, ain’t nuffin’ outside doin’ much of anythin’. Y, just last night it was still 104°F at 9:30 p.m.. That’s just too hot.

 

          Yep sissy, it is. You’d think the old bobcat and the coon family would be knockin’ on our door askin’ fur food. It’s gotta be too hot to hunt.

 

Me’s been wonderin’ where they were Raena. We haven’t seen either of ‘em all season. Maybe when it starts coolin’ off in a couple of months they’ll show up. Fankfully, we furinally got a new lease signed. Our rent went up $30.00, so mommy may have to put her dentures on hold fur a bit. It takes quite a bit of gas to get there every week and she’s been drivin’ on fumes the last couple times. With more money we don’t have goin’ to rent and nowhere to take green papers from, that drive is purretty much the only thing left to cut.

 

Raena lays on scratching pad

 

 

 

          Well sissy, I’s guess that’ll give her more time to try to fix the mess the manager made and figger out what they can and can’t do befur it all starts again. Ya’ know the manager told mommy that they’re gonna be “rehabing” these ‘pawrtments soon and that they’re gonna wanna do a move out and then move us back in and start all this again in just a few months. Mommy told ‘em they couldn’t do that cuz she has a years lease, and utilities that be in her name that she has to pay each month. While she might not have had to put down a depawsit, those companies charge to turn it on and move it and stuffs. Not to mention the stress mommy’s just went thru. We fur sure can’t be doin’ this again that soon. We all need time to recupurrate.  

 

Yeah Raena, the way they treat us just ain’t right. It’s not like we’re poor and need help by choice. And mommy certainly ain’t disabled by choice. Ifin mommy could change our situation, she would in a heartbeat. Our mommy ain’t afraid of work. Y, Befur her accident, she worked 2 and 3 jobs at a time to make sure she could affurd everythin’ she needed and wanted. 

 

          I’s heard sissy. She says she was young and dumb back then and didn’t save, so that’s why we’re in the shape we’re in now. Altho’ I’s know mommy wishes she could do more and could give us more, and had more money, I’s glad things happened the way they did. Y, ifin they hadn’t who knows where you and me would be? We might not have ever been saved?. I’s don’t even wanna think ‘bout what it would have been like ifin mommy hadn’t showed up and whisked me away to this Blest life. 

 

Dezi lays on liberty tree and Raena on the small perch looking at each other in front of the door.

 

 

 

Me neither, Raena, me neither. We might not be rich by the standards the world uses, but when it comes to luv, we’re bazillionaires. 

 

          You got that right sissy. We’ve got the bestest mommy ever, altho’ we know all of you think you’ve got the bestest pawrent, and that’s okay. And meowin’ of all of ya’, we can’t ‘magine a life without you.

We wouldn’t want to Raena. We have the bestest furiends in the whole universe. God smiled on us the day we met you, our dear furiends, and we ask Him each and every day to keep and Bless you and your families. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. Blessings are all ‘round us, we just have to stop and see ‘em.

          So true sissy, so true. Let’s link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and go get us some mommy luvvin’. But furst, I’s wanna meow Fanky fank You God, fur all our blessings. And fanky fank all of you fur bein’ pawrt of our Blessings each day.

 

Me seconds that Raena. C’mon, me will race ya’ to mommy’s lap.

          Raena:  I’s here sissy. I’s sure wish I’s could’a met your sis Lexi. Mommy luvs her so much.

We both do, Raena. But, we luv you very much too. We don’t always unnerstand why God does the things He does, but we have to believe it’s fur a good reason. After all, ifin sis Lexi hadn’t gone to heaven we would’a never had you in our family. And only the good Lord knows what would’a happened to ya’ then. What with your scrawnly little fluffy body and mucky eyes and nose, you didn’t stand a chance in that there cage you were livin’ in. It’s a wonder you could even see or smell. Mommy says she ‘members your furst night here with us. You’d never seen a toy or had room to run, and you were goin’ nuts. It’s like you didn’t know what to do furst. 

 

 RaenaBelle plays

 

 

 

          Oh sissy, I’s barely ‘member any of that. I’s do ‘member the relief I’s felt when mommy said I’s was gonna live with her furever and ever tho’. That was the bestest day of mine’s life. Ifin I’s never celebrated another birthday it would be okay cuz mommy makes me feel special every day. I’s one Blest kitty girl fur sure.

Yep Raena, you got that right. Me just wishes every kitty in the world could know a little sliver of the happiness and security we do. 

 

 Happy birthday card to Raena from Pipo and Dalton

Fanky fank you Pipo and Dalton.

 

 

 

          Me too sissy. Not only do we have a luvvin’ mommy and furever home, we’ve got the bestest furiends in the universe. I’s wanna fanky fank awnty Anonymous, awnty Vonda and awnty Susan fur mine’s birthday green papers. Mommy’s purromissed to take me shoppin’ to pick out somethin’ special fur me and fur you. After all, I’s luvs to share. I’s also luvs those fureeze dried kangaroo treats mommy got fur us. They sure were tasty. And, the weather’s warmed up enuff fur a stroll today. I’s can’t hardly wait. What a pawsum way to celebrate. Even tho’ mine’s birthday was technically last Caturday when it was rainin’ and fureezin’ cold out, this weekend’s much better. I’s think mommy’s way of celelbratin’ all month is just purrfect. I’s also wanted to fanky fank our furiends Valentine and awnty Kerry and Pipo and Dalton fur the pawsum birthday cards. I’s even got some of those great e-cards from awnty Vonda and awnty Jeanne and Purrseidon. Fanky fank you all so very much. And fanky fank you all fur celebratin’ mine’s 2nd birthday.

Blest Sunday: Will Raena Get A BlogPaws Birthday Party

Dezi:  MeOW Raena, what are you doin’?

 

Raena lays atop Liberty Cat tree and hangs paw over edge

 

 

 

          Raena:  I’s lookin’ fur all the birdies and squirrels that were here the other day. What happened to all of ‘em, sissy? I’s thought maybe they came to wish me a happy birthday. 

 

Dezi lays in at bed

 

 

 

Well Raena, furst of all your birthday isn’t fur a couple more weeks. Secondly, it turned fureezin’ cold again. The weather guessers even said we might get some snow. Can you believe that? Snow!!! (Dezi shudders) Fankfully they were wrong.

 

          Least so far sissy. Mommy says the colds are s’posed to be here fur a little longer. Seems Spring likes the snooze button as much as us cats. Anyways, meowin’ of mine’s birthday, are you gonna throw me a pawrty? Ya’ know, like with costumes and pawrty favors and all our furiends comin’ over fur a play date? Mommy says I’s gettin’ to be a big girl now, so I’s oughtta have a big girl pawrty, right? 

 

Dezi lays in cat bed with a snarky look

 

 

 

Me thinks mommy may be refurrin’ to your ever x’pandin’ belly Raena, cuz you’re only gonna be 2 years old. In Ragdoll time, you’re still an annoyin’ kitten. 

 

          Sissy, are you bein’ mean to me? I’s gonna tell mommy you’re bein’ mean. 

 

It’s not mean ifin it’s the truth, Raena. Anyways, your birthday just happens to fall on the weekend of BlogPaws. With so many of our furiends bein’ away that weekend, me thought we’d have a small celebration fur your birthday and really whoop it up fur your Gotchaday. Me’s even workin’ on a little surpurrise. 

 

 Raena's profile while laying atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          A surpurrise, sissy? Wha’cha’ plannin? Are we goin’ to BlogPaws? Will mine’s pawrty be there?

 

Ifin me told ya’, it wouldn’t be a surpurrise silly. (Dezi shakes her head and smiles deviously) As fur BlogPaws, mommy says she’s still workin’ on it. Chewy offurred to sponsor us fur some of our trip and awnty Cindy and angel Maggie Meme said they’d sponsor some of it, so mommy’s tryin’ to work it all out. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

 

          But we’d go with mommy, right sissy? I’s mean, mommy wouldn’t actually go off and leave us, right? 

 

Dezi stands on tip of stroller-selfie

 

 

 

‘Course we’d go, Raena. Don’t be silly. When has mommy ever left us behind? She tells us all the time how much she luvs us and how she would never ever leave us. We’re really Blest to have such a pawsum mommy. 

 

          We sure are sissy. I’s know that lots of peeps are talkin’ ‘bout this BlogPaws, but what is it ‘zactly? Is it fun? 

 

Yeah Raena, it’s fun. It’s a confurrence fur all the anipal bloggers and micro-bloggers. It’s a chance to meet furiends in the fur to flesh, and inneract with peeps from all the brands we luv and some we’ve never heard of. To check out all the latest and greatest in cat toys, supplies and furniture. Oh, and to attend learnin’ sessions to make our bloggy better. That last pawrt is fur mommy. Like we need any lessons on how to run our own bloggy. Hmmmpht 

 

 Raena profile selfie laying in mommy's lap getting love

 

 

 

          That sure does sound like fun, sissy. What a way to spend mine’s birthday. I’s could meet all our furiends and maybe even go fur a stroll with ‘em. That would really be cool. Ya’ know, we’re always wantin’ to go strollin’ with our furiends, and now we really could. OMC We could show off our new stroller. We gotta get busy and trick it out.

 

One step at a time, grasshopper.

 

          Grasshopper? Who are you meowin’ to, sissy? I’s no grasshopper. I’s don’t even know who grasshopper is? 

 

Dezi lays on scratcher looking cute

 

 

 

Never mind, Raena. Let’s finish brekky and then we can meow ‘bout trickin’ our new Gen7 Jogger out. We are really Blest to have such pawsum oppurrtunities. Ya’ know, in all the years mommy worked, she never had a vacation. Our furst trip to BlogPaws was really the furst time mommy had ever done anythin’ like that. And now we have the chance to go again. What a blessing. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your life. 

 

 Raena lays in mommy's lap getting love

 

 

 

          Don’t furget sissy, we’re also linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. C’mon sissy, let’s make a list of all the things we wanna take. 

 

You go ahead Raena, me’s gonna take a short nap furst.
