Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. We’ve got sun puddles at the Three Belles Ranch!!! Can you believe it? I’s thought the sun was never comin’ back. Really, I’s had just ‘bout given up hope of ever seein’ mister sunshine or feelin’ warm air again. Kittens!!! It’s been so gray ‘round here fur so long, it’s a wonder we didn’t shrivel up.
MeOW Well…What a week. Oh, hi everypawdy, me sure hopes your week’s been less stressful than ours. You know, a kitty luvs a good box, but at some point, you can actually have too many boxes. Me knows. You can’t believe me just meowed that can ya’? But seriously, we can’t hardly get ‘round cuz of all the boxes in every corner. And half of ‘em ain’t even put together yet.
Oh sissy, I’s think they’re fun. Just walk on top of ‘em. I’s can get almost the whole way down the hall without ever touchin’ the floor.
We need more boxes mommy.
True Raena, but there’s not enuff room fur the wheelchair anymore, so mommy has to crawl ‘round on the floor again. That means it takes longer fur her to get our brekky. One of these days, we’re gonna starve waitin’ on her to make breakfast.
I’s sure hope not sissy. Mine’s tummy grumbles enuff befur breakfast; I’s fur sure don’t wanna waste away to nuffin’ waitin’ on it. Ifin only we had thumbs, we could make it ourselves.
Now wouldn’t that be nice Raena. Ifin we had thumbs just think of all the things we could do. Y, We could get back at mommy fur all those inappropriate fotos she takes of us. Like when we’re tryin’ to take a bath or use the pawtty box,or even eat. How many times have we’ve been chowin’ down when mommy decides to get the flashy box and click, click, click away?
You’ve got a point sissy, but I’s not sure anypawdy wants to see mommy take a bath. Anyways, it’s turned chilly cold again so most of the foto ops mommy gets are us snugglin’ in her lap. I’s just cover mine’s eyes with mine’s fur floof and don’t even notice the flashy box. MOL
What flashy box?
Or you sit on the scratcher in front of the teevee fillin’ your mind with all that junk.
Hey sissy, don’t be knockin’ mine’s shows. They’re not junk. One of mine’s new faves is that Seal Team. You know how much I’s luvs a man in unifurm.
RaenaBelle!!! Where did you hear that?
What? Did I’s meow it wrong or somethin’? I’s do luvs our soldiers. They keep us safe ya’ know.
Me knows Raena, me luvs ‘em too. But you do realize there’s a big difference t’ween what you see on your shows and real life, don’t ya’?
‘Course sissy. How silly do you think I’s am? Still, I’s like to root fur ‘em. And, they have a really cute woofy that goes on all their missions. I’s keep tellin’ ‘em they need to get a kitty, but I’s don’t think they’re gettin’ mine’s letters.
Letters? Where are you sendin’ these letters, Raena?
I’s don’t know sissy, I’s just let mommy send ‘em fur me.
Well Raena, good luck with that. C’mon, let’s finish brekky so mommy can put away our plates and make some room to play.
Okay sissy. I’s gonna link us up with Comedy Plus fur Feline Furiday furst.
You do that Raena. Guess that means you won’t notice ifin me just takes a few bites off your plate.
Till the next time………………………………………………………Be Blest!!!
Dezi: MeOW C’mon RaenaBelle, It’s Blest Sunday. Me wants to count me’s Blessings befur the storms start again.
Raena: I’s comin’ sissy. Ya’ know, it would really be a Blessing to mommy ifin you didn’t spend so much time unner the bed. (Raena meows sarcastically) I’s know, you’re not hidin’, you’re lookin’ fur intruders. But, I’s don’t think any intruders could have slipped by you. You’ve been unner the bed most of the week.
Dezi: Was not, Raena. Me also spent time on the stool unner the vanity by the bed, and unner the dinin’ room table. Me even spent some time in mommy’s lap. And, somewhere durin’ one of those times we did get an intruder. You know, that fly we’ve been chasin’ fur two days?.
Come back here fly!!!
Raena: I’s think he’s multiplyin’ sissy. I’s know I’s caught him once already. He tasted kind’a nasty. And I’s accidentally scratched mommy when I’s clasped him t’ween mine’s fluffy paws.
Dezi: Yep Raena, me heard. You’re a dangerous hunter. You’re all over the place. It’s like you’re chasin’ the wilds. You even jumped up on the kitchen counter. You know we’re not allowed up there.
Raena: I’s was tryin’ to ketch the fly sissy. It was botherin’ mommy and you were nowhere in sight. So, it was totally up to me to purrtect her. Flies are wild, aren’t they?
Dezi: Purrlease Raena, like that fly was gonna hurt mommy. What…
Raena: It might have sissy. She kept waving her hands thru the air and makin’ spittin’ sounds. It could’a flown in her mouth. So, I’s had to keep her safe. Ifin you hadn’t been hidin’ out you might’ve known what a pest he was bein’. Anyways, I’s thought we were gonna count our Blessings. Let’s get on with it, I’s wanna go finish mine’s brekky.
Dezi: Meowin’ of food Raena, did you know mommy signed us up fur some 30 day challenge?
Raena: Yep sissy, I’s heard that. I’s hope it’s a challenge we’ll like. You know, we’re really Blest to be able to do things like this. Not every kitty in the world gets to try out new stuffs and toys and noms. That’s one of my fanky fankfuls this week. And, I’s know we mention havin’ a luvvin’ furever home a lot, but I’s think that’s a Blessin’ we should give fanky fanks fur every day. ‘Specially with all these storms we’ve been havin’. I’s wouldn’t wanna even think ‘bout havin’ to live outside in it. (Raena shudders)
Dezi: You’re right Raena. Havin’ a furever home is somethin’ to be fankful fur every day. As are our furiends and mommy. Our life’s purretty good from where me’s sittin’. Sure we have a few purroblems now and then, but mommy says that’s just pawrt of life. And, as long as we have each other, God and luv, there ain’t nuffin we can’t overcome.
Raena: You’ve got that right sissy. We luvs our furiends so much. We meow extra purrayers fur each of you every day.
Dezi: Let’s wrap this up Raena. Me’s kind’a hungry too. 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 lives. And, we wanna say and meowsy big Thank you to all of you fur bein’ Blessings in ours.
I’s not sure what all this “easy” stuffs is, but this is what mine’s easy looks like.
Raena:And, as we do each week, we’re joinin’ the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies.
Dezi: You always have to have the last meow, don’t you Raena?.
Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. It furinally cooled off a bit yesfurday. It was only 99°F. We won’t meow ‘bout the feels like cuz it was really humid which means it feels hotter than it is. Fanky fankfully, we have air conditionin’ to help keep things comfutable and cool. Not to mention the sink in the bathroom. I’s sometimes like to curl up there and take a nice little cat nap. Do any of you do that? Ya’ know, with the hots bein’ what they are I’s guessin’ lots of peeps and cats would much purr-fur to lay ‘round not doin’ much.
Yep Raena, who knew you could be still that long. Me actually took a nice long nap the other day and you didn’t bug me once. Me actually worried a little that you might be sick or somethin’.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaw Really sissy? You worried ‘bout me?
Yeah, don’t let it go to your head Raena. Me wasn’t worried enuff to go look fur ya’ or anythin’. Hey, did you see that mommy found our hexbug?
Yep sissy, but it’s too hot to run ‘round chasin’ it right now. Maybe when it cools off some more. Ya’ know, I’s never would’a thought I’s would see the day when I’s didn’t wanna go out fur a stroll with mommy. But, sure ‘nuff, when mommy asked me ifin I’s wanted to go to the mailbox with her yesfurday, I’s meowed no. Why would I’s wanna leave the comfurt of the a/c to get all glowy and glistenin’?.
You mean sweaty Raena? Cats don’t sweat.
I’s know sissy. Mommy says us Southern Belles glow.
Well Raena, Southern Belles may glow, but really, we cats don’t sweat or glow. That’s why we pant when we get hot. Not that it does any good, but we do it any ways.
I’s really worry ‘bout all those kitties who live outside sissy. Ya’ know, even when we do get out in the heat, mommy’s pushin’ us ‘round in the stroller. Can you ‘magine how hot the ground must be? And there are lots of kitties out there havin’ to walk ‘round on it and burn their poor pawsies. They can’t stretch out unner the a/c or even curl up in a bathroom sink. It’s just not fair. I’s don’t unnerstand how some peeps can be so cruel as to turn poor kitties out?.
Raena, me doesn’t think anypawdy truly unnerstands those kinds of peeps. But, that’s why it’s so ‘purrtant fur the kind humans to do what they can fur all those kitties that don’t have cushy homes like we do. Ya’ know like purrvidin’ shelter so they can get outta the sun and the heat. And, makin’ sure they have access to furesh cool water. Y, Mommy used to put ice cubes in water bowls fur the stray kitties when we had ‘em. When takin’ care of stray kitties and feral colonies, purrtectin’ ‘em from the heat is just as ‘purrtant as purrtectin’ ‘em from the cold.
It sure is sissy. I’s even heard mommy sayin’ ya’ll were gonna be offurn’ up Tips on how to Beat the Summer Heat this Furiday.
Me heard her say that too Raena. Me hopes she can keep her head outta the freezer long enuff to write our posty and help us visit our furiends. T’ween the heat and mommy’s own purrsonal summers’, she’s been spendin’ a lot of time hangin’ in front of it.
Maybe the freezer acts like the bathroom sink fur mommy. She’s just too big to crawl up in there and lay down.
Now that would be funny Raena. Me can see it now.
Well sissy, what do ya’ say we go take a nap. Maybe by the time we wake up, it’ll be cool enuff fur some zoomies?.
