MeOW-llo Dear Furiends. Me sure hopes you’ve all had a pawsum week. Kittens, It’s already August; can you believe it? This whole year has been a total upheaval fur us, and it’s not over yet. But, we have great things comin’ up. Like me’s birthday and gotchaday, and Christmas, and…
Don’t furget Fanky Fanksgiving, sissy. When mommy was in the grocery store the other day, she saw a turkey tom lurkey on sale fur $12.00. She said it was .99 cents a pound. They’re never that cheap ‘round here.
Me luvs turkey tom lurkey Raena. Did she buy it?
No, she said it’s still too x’pensive and right now, she doesn’t have a pan to cook it in. The box with the cookin’ pans still hasn’t been found. She did furinally find the silverware and knives tho’.
Maybe there’s a turkey tom lurkey cookin’ pan in here.
Hmmmpht Those are just x’cuses Raena, she could’a bought one of those foil pans to cook it in. Oh well, maybe they’ll go on sale again sometime. Me heard our Dollar General started carryin’ groceries too. Have ya’ been in there lately?
Nope, but I’s know mommy said they had milk fur the cheap right now, It’s only $3.00. Anyways, ‘nuff ‘bout groceries. I’s found a new hidin’ spot.
Is that where you were this meownin’ when mommy wanted to go to bed Raena? She fur sure wasn’t happy ‘bout not bein’ able to find you.
Yeah sissy, bedtime, ‘specially at 5 am might not be the right time to play hide and seek. Who knew mommy would freak out when she couldn’t find me? She usually keeps lookin’, but this meownin’ she got all flustered and changed the tone of her voice to the not playin’ one. Kittens, I’s thought we were playin’.
Well Raena, me’s thinkin’ bedtime really ain’t the bestest time fur playin’. Anyways, when you realized mommy was tired you came out so we could pray and have bedtime snuggles.
Of course I’s did sissy, bedtime snuggles are mine’s most favorite pawrt of the day. Still, I’s do like mine’s new hidin’ spot. We should play hide and seek later.
Sure Raena…Not!!! MOL There’s still too many boxes to navigate. ‘Specially when you think the stacks of boxes mean you can get on top of all the furniture. You may not mind gettin’ in trouble, but me doesn’t like makin’ mommy angry.
Purrlease sissy, all mommy does is tell me to get down. I’s got a feelin’ we don’t really know what real trouble is. Fanky fankfully, mommy luvs us too much.
Whatever Raena. Anyways, it’s Feline Furiday and the start of the weekend. So, let’s link up with Comedy Plus and visit our furiends.
Okay sissy. Sounds like a great plan. I’s can’t wait to see what everypawdy’s been up to.
Me neither Raena. Here’s to a furtabulous weekend.
MeOWwwww RaenaBelle, did you see the snow yesfurday? Me thought we might not get any since it was stormin’ and rainin’. But it was so cold the raindrops turned to snow drops mid air.
Really sissy? The cold can make rain turn to snow?
What? Uh…sure it can Raena, didn’t you see it?
No, I’s was too busy snugglin’ with mommy. Is it still snowin’? Do ya’ think mommy will let us go out and play in it?
Nah, Fankfully the snow’s stopped fur now and the sun’s come out. Mr. Sun ain’t doin’ anythin’ to warm us up, but at least he’s makin’ the snow melt. The weather guessers had furcasted 8” of snow plus an inch of ice. Fankfully, they were wrong as usual. As fur playin’ in it, let me tell ya’, it’s not as fun as it might sound Raena. Me ‘members me’s furst time in the snow. A long time ago, me thought me just had to go out and see it. So, mommy wheeled us outside and me accidentally pushed the joystick on the wheelchair furward and we fell off the sidewalk and right into that cold white stuffs. Me couldn’t get in the house fast enuff. Me’s sis Lexi laffed at me furever ‘bout that.
See the bottom of that box behind me? Mommy says
it’s our new scratcher lounger.
Really sissy? You made mommy fall into the snow?
Not on purr-puss Raena, it was an accident. Trust me, that was the last thing me wanted to do. (Dezi goes back to eating her breakfast to distract her from the memory of falling in the snow)
What did it feel like sissy? Was it soft?
Can’t you see me’s eatin’? (Dezi thinks back to that day when she was just a small kitten who ended up in the snow with mommy A and the wheelchair falling on top of her) To be honest Raena, me doesn’t ‘member that much ‘bout it. Me just ‘members it was cold and me wanted to go back inside where it was toasty warm and safe. Me feels so bad fur the kitties that have to live out in all that cold.
I’s do too sissy. I’s so wish every kitty could have a happy and luvvin’ furever like we do. It’s a new year and I’s gonna purray that more kitties find homes than ever befur. (Raena jumps up on the back of mommy A’s chair and begins to take a mid morning bath)
That’s a good idea Raena. Me will join ya’. Meowin’ of the new year, we’re gonna be pickin’ up where we left off with our Service Cat Furiday posty’s startin’ February 1st. So, we’d like to remind ya’ to send us your questions and article suggestions. You can do so via our Contact us page or sendin’ us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be delvin’ deeper into Nutrition and the foods we kitties do/should eat, as well as takin’ a look at the food/feed available on the market. We hope you’ll join us.
I’s fur sure can’t wait sissy. I’s been doin’ lots of research to get ready. I’s even heard mommy sayin’ we were gonna be tastin’ some new foodables so we can meow the truth. I’s gonna go link us up with Comedy Plus fur Feline Furidays. Will you play with me afterwards?
Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s don’t like it when mommy’s stressed out. Do you know she passed out last night while we were in the middle of typin’ a comment to one of our furiends? Ifin that wasn’t bad enuff, no sooner did she come too, then she fell asleep right there in the sittin’ chair. Yep, mouth open, droolin’, snorin’ and all. She’s s’posed to come to the bed so we can give her a massage and snuggle up next to her. There’s not much room fur snugglin’ in the sittin’ chair. I’s don’t like it, I’s tell ya’, I’s just don’t.
Raena, me’s not sure mommy was actually droolin’, me’s purretty sure that was me.
Really sissy? Why would you be droolin’? It makes everythin’ all slobbery and wet. The sittin’ chair’s already got limited space and now you go and slobber all over it. Anyways…I’s just want things to get back to normal ‘round here. I’s need mine’s cuddle time with mommy, it’s a non-negotiable. She purromissed when she saved me that we’d always cuddle and I’s don’t want that to change.
Non-Negotiable Raena? Where’d you come up with that one?
From the teevee sissy. The show we watched the other day was askin’ peeps what non-negotiables they had fur their pawrtners. Mommy said that it meant what things they had to have or wouldn’t put up with. So, cuddlin’ is mine’s non-negotiable.
Well Raena, it also means that ifin you don’t get your non-negotiable, you won’t be stayin’ in that relationship. Are you ready to pack up and move out?
Leave mommy? ‘Course not!!! I’s would never leave mommy, and she purromissed she’d never leave me.
Well then, it’s not really a non-negotiable Raena. Maybe befur you go throwin’ ‘round human phrases, you need to know ‘zactly what they mean. Better yet, maybe you should quit watchin’ so much teevee. You’re startin’ to sound like those latch key kids that spend all their time in front of the boob tube or playin’ catputer games ‘stead of enjoyin’ life and the company of others. Ya’ know, we’ve got great nature teevee right out the front door you could watch.
That’s just a bunch of re-runs sissy. The same ole peeps doin’ the same ole things every day. It’s done gone and got too hot fur the birdies to do much other than hang out on the tree branches in the shade. I’s not seen one bunny in like, furever. No ducks or geese, Y, even the woofies are stayin’ inside, so what’s so great ‘bout nature teevee these days?
Well Raena, all me knows is that all that nonsense on human teevee isn’t good fur us kitties. Anyways, our furiend CK purrposed some innerview questions fur us the other day, so why don’t we take a minute and answer ‘em?
Okay sissy, that sounds like fun.
1.When did something start out badly for you, but in the end it was great?
Well, me thinks me can answer fur both of us on this one, Raena. Neither of us had a very good start in life. But since we met mommy, it couldn’t get any better.
2. What weird food combinations do you enjoy?
I’s can meow fur both of us on this one sissy. We don’t really eat combo foods. We like rabbit bestest.
3. What food have you never eaten but would like to try?
Me’s got this one Raena. Filet Mignon. Sis Lexi used to meow ‘bout it all the time. She said mommy brought some home once when she had a date and it just melted in her mouth.
A date, sissy? Our mommy went on a date?
Another time Raena. Let’s get back to the questions.
4. What food is delicious, but a pain to eat?
Mine’s turn sissy. I’s gotta say those bonito flakes take some getting’ used too.
5. What’s the most expensive thing you’ve ever broken?
Me will answer, Raena. After all, you’re the one who broke our furst stroller.
I’s purrfection purrsonified. MOL
6. What would a world populated by clones of you be like?
Hmmmpht Mommy said your big hiney had already broken it sissy. Anyways, a world full of clones of me? I’s an original and there could never be a copy equal to mine’s purrfection.
7. What smartfone feature would you be excited for a company to implement?
Who’s the laff a minute now Raena? Since we can’t actually use a smartfone we’d like to see a way fur kitties to actually get into ‘em. We could take compurrmisin’ fotos of mommy then. Me bets we’d get lots of treats in exchange fur not postin’ ’em. MOL
8. What’s something people don’t worry about but should?
I’s don’t care anythin’ ‘bout the smartfone sissy. As fur what humans should worry ‘bout, who knows? I’s just a kitty and mommy says kitties shouldn’t worry ‘bout human stuffs.
9. What was cool when you were young, but isn’t cool now?
Y, everythin’ ‘bout me will always be cool. Raena on the other paw…
10. If magic was real, what spell would you cast first?
We don’t purrticipate in spells and such. Bein’ Christians, we don’t believe in deception.
11. What’s the most comfortable bed or chair you’ve ever been in?
Me can answer this one fur both of us too, Raena. That’s so easy, mommy’s lap. Mommy’s lap is the most coveted seat in the house.
It sure is sissy. I’s think I’s gonna head there now. Fanky fanks fur the questions CK, we always luv learnin’ more ‘bout our furiends. Ifin you wanna purrticipate, just link back to CK’s bloggy. These kinds of things are always so much fun when lots of bloggers get in on the action.
Till the next time……………………………………………………….Be Blest!!!
Meowllo everypawdy and welcome to another pawsumly Blest Sunday and more as you can see by me’s title. You know with all da talk ‘bout Buddy lately me’s been thinkin’ and given lots of thanks fur me’s mommy and home. Ya’ see, Buddy be da same age as me is and dat means he coulda been here with me’s mommy instead of me had circumstances been different. How’s dat you ask? Well mommy had just lost a fur baby and service kitty and was searchin’ fur a kitty just like now.
Occasionally peeps drop off their unwated kittens and cats out here at our ‘pawrtment complex and of course all da old peeps feed them. Just so happens dat at da time mommy was searchin’ there weren’t any strays bein’ fed here dat she knew of. And then of course she got da call ‘bout me. Ifin you wanna read up on how me came to be here with mommy you can click here and here. Anyways, da minute mommy met me and me chose her, she was smitten and wasn’t leavin’ without me. So me came home to live with mommy. And then a couple weeks later mr. W came wheelin’ up da walk with a kitty in his arms. Apparently he had been feedin’ him as a stray and mommy didn’t even know he was around. Da point is, dat ifin Buddy had’a showed up at mommy’s house just a few weeks earlier, she never woulda met me. God was sure lookin’ out fur me. So me’s been givin’ lots of thanks fur me’s blessings. Cuz ifin me hadn’t met mommy me wouldn’t have met any of you either. Me doesn’t even wanna think about life without all me’s furiends and blessings.
Blessings come in all different shapes and sizes and sometimes when you least expect them. Me’s life is overflowin’ with ‘em, and me thinks ifin ya’ just look around a minute you’ll find yours is too. We got a bit of a cold snap this weekend and it’s really gloomy out so me’s been getting’ some extra snuggles and cuddles in. And ya’ know what? Sis Lexi used to sleep ‘tween mommy’s legs and me slept by her side up under her arm. But fur da last couple of nights me has slept ‘tween mommys legs. Well at least pawrt of da night. Sis Lexi had short furs and didn’t get as hot as me does ‘pawrently. Mommy says she feels blest dat me does it at all, she doesn’t care whether me stays there all night or not. So mommy’s been thankin’ God fur her blessings too. With all da cuddlin’ goin’ on me got a few selfies to share, so me’s joinin’ da Kitties Blue fur da Sunday Selfie blog hop. It’s also National Straw Hat day, so me had to show off a hat. Mommy said so. MOL
