Blest Sunday: Happy Thanksgiving 2021

Hey dearest furiends, can you believe it’s almost Thanky Thanksgiving? I’s mean, it feels like just yesfurday it was summertime. It’s so strange to be celebrating without sis Dezi. Ya’ know, she was born and gotcha’d in November all those years ago. Tomorrow would’ve been her Gotchaday. (Raena lowers her head and wipes a tear from her eye.) But, it’s Zebby’s furst, so I’s plan to make sure he knows all about Giving Thanks fur our many Blessings.

Blest Sunday: Wagging Tongues

MeOW  What a wonderful week of Blessings and Fankfulness. (Dezi walks back and forth down the hall meowing, stopping occasionally to squat, wiggle and look around before starting up again. She hears the wind blowing through the wind chimes and the leaves rustling outside and jumps on the Liberty cat tree to take a look.)  RaenaBelle, hasn’t this been a pawsum week?

 

Dezi lays on top of cat tree and RAena sits on small perch in front of door

 

 

 

          Yep sissy, it really has. (The wind blows up a funnel cloud of leaves and Raena crouches on the perch in front of the door watching intently as if she could reach out and catch one.)  We’re so Blest; even mommy’s startin’ to feel a bit better. She said fanky fanks to our massages and a box of imitrex her migraine’s let up a lot. At least enuff so she can think again. I’s told her we had plans to make and things to get done befur Christmas. I’s so ready fur Christmas to be here, aren’t you? 

 

Pipo and Dalton in masksConCats, great masks.

 

 

 

Yeah Raena, me can’t hardly wait. But befur we move on we need to ‘pawlogize fur not announcin’ the winners of our mask contest at me’s Carnival pawrty. What with the innernet bein’ out, mommy’s sick and the holidays, we got way behind. Our winners were Pipo and Dalton. As purromissed, you’ll be gettin’ a little sumpin’ sumpin’; but, all our plans went astray and it ain’t here yet. So, we’ll send it on when we get it, K? Me was so happy to see so many of our furiends purrticipate. The bloggin’ community, cats and their peeps in purrticular are just the bestest ever.

          You got that right sissy. Meowin’ of furiends, we need to send out a fanky fank you to awnty Cindy and her brofur uncle Marshall and all the kitties. Not only did they send us that tasty fanky Fanksgivin’ dinner along with a goody box, but they also sent us a case of shelf stable milk and some green papers. Mommy says the car tags are due, so it’s a really big help. 

 

And me wants to fank awnty Vonda fur sendin’ us some green papers too Raena. Mommy said me has a late Birthday/Gotchaday gift comin’. 

 

Raena lays on perch in front of door looking back

 

 

 

 

          Really sissy? Are you gonna share? 

 

 

Dezi sits on floor in front of chair

 

 

 

Is me gonna share? Does me have a choice? Anyways, mommy said there’d be purrlenty. All me can meow is she better be right. You try to hog everythin’.

 

          Me? Nuh uh, that’s not me, that’s you. You’re the one who always throws a hissy fit when I’s try to play bunny kick the nip nanner with you. 

 

 

 

That’s cuz you wanna steal me’s nip nanner ‘stead of playin’ with your own Raena. There’s a reason mommy insists on two of everythin’; so we each can have our own. 

 

          Then why don’t you play with the other one sissy? 

 

It doesn’t matter which one me plays with Raena, that’s the one you’re gonna want. (Raena thinks for a minute and then goes back to watching the leaves fly around outside while Dezi grins at having left Raena meowless.)  Cat got your tongue? MOL 

 

Raena lays on floor with tongue touching nose

 

 

 

          Huh? What does that even mean sissy? I’s a cat, so of course I’s got mine’s tongue. Wanna see? (Raena sticks her tongue out at Dezi)

 

Me’s gonna tell mommy you’re stickin’ your tongue out and bein’ mean Raena.

 

          I’s not bein’ mean sissy, I’s just showin’ ya’ that I’s got mine’s tongue. You’re the one that asked ‘bout it?. 

 

Dezi sits with tongue out in front of door

 

 

 

Oh sure, try to blame me fur your meanness.  (Dezi sticks her tongue out at Raena.)  

  

          I’s not…sissy…? C’mon sissy, let’s not fight. It’s Blest Sunday, we’re s’posed to be countin’ our Blessings, not arguin’.  

 

Dezi plays on cat scratcher

 

 

 

You’re right Raena. We are Blest to have more than one nip nanner. We’re Blest in so many ways. 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 a meowsy big Fank you fur bein’ Blessings in ours.

          Let’s take a quick selfie and link up with the Kittie Blue fur Sunday Selfies, sissy. And I’s’ll let ya’ play with both nip nanners all by yourself today. 

 

(Dezi meows quietly)  Sure you will…but fur how long? Sure Raena, fanks. 

 

Till the next time………………………………………………………Be Blest!!!

          I’s comin’ sissy, I’s just gonna have one more bite of turkey tom lurkey. Sorry Trout Towne Tabbies, but we do luvs a bite of furesh cooked turkey tom lurkey.

 

 Dezi stands in middle of floor licking lips

 

 

 

That we do Raena. But, we’ve got some freeze dried salmon bits just in case any of our fish luvvin’ furiends happen to paw on over. We sure did enjoy us a nice meal on Fanksgivin’, didn’t we Raena?

 

 Raena eats treats on the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          Sure ‘nuff sissy. Fanky fanks to awnty Cindy and angel Maggie Meme, awnty Vonda and awnty Petal fur the green papers. We went to the store and dug through the bin till mommy found a nice lookin’ little breast fur the three of us. She got some more of those big ole bakin’ taters too, and some bread and dinner rolls. You know how much mommy luvs her bread. 

 

Groceries for Thanksgiving dinnerFank you fur this food. We’re enjoyin’ every last bite.

 

 

 

 

Yep, and a teeny milk to go with the noodles and the rest of that powdered cheese fur cheater mac and cheese. Mommy says the rest of the green papers will go towards a V-E-T visit fur your eyes. We gotta figger out why they won’t clear up lessen you’re on the steroids and antibiotics. And, did ya’ hear? Timmy, uncle Pete and the furmily sent me some green papers fur me’s Gotchaday. Fank ya’ll bunches. Me’s thinkin’ maybe we can sneak on the catputer tomorrow with all the other crazy cyber Monday shoppers. Who knows what we’ll find?.

 

          Maybe we can even spare a little to get mommy a donut. I’s not know what a cravin’ is, but she’s been yowlin’ ‘bout donuts fur days now. I’s thinkin’ that’s Bear Kat Cat’s fault. MOL

 

We’ll see Raena. Ya’ know, we’ve been meowin’ ‘bout this and that today, and while we’re sure fankful fur our Fanksgivin’ blessings, we should really meow what we’re most fankful fur.

 

 Raena sleeps while laying on cat tree

I’s so fanky fankful fur mine’s mommy and mine’s home and mine’s

sissy and awwwwwww-ll of you.

 

 

 

          That’s easy sissy. We’re most fanky fankful fur mommy and our furever home. We’re fanky fankful fur full bellies, a warm place to lay our heads and the most pawsum furiends in the universe. Ya’ know, we’re so blest to have what we do. There are so many kitties and even peeps out there that be less furtunate than us. Mommy ‘members a time when she wondered where she and Shad would sleep or when she might get to eat, and says it’s no fun at all. And, with the weather getting’ colder, we so worry ‘bout those livin’ outside.

 

 Dezi lays in lap getting love close up

This is the life.

 

 

 

Yeah Raena, we don’t like to think ‘bout any kitty livin’ outside at any time of the year, but we really worry at this time of year ‘specially. Seriously, ifin ya’ have any strays or ferals livin’ in your neck of the woods, purrlease do what ya’ can to help ‘em out. There’s lots of infurmation on da innernets ‘bout makin’ cheap shelters and surely ya’ can spare a few bites fur the less furtunate. The Bible says, ya’ never know when ya’ might be entertainin’ angels unaware. Yeah, me parameowed it. Now we’ll be honest and tell ya’ we don’t know ifin that might be refurrin’ to kitties, but hey, we don’t know it ain’t. What we can tell ya’, is that a little kindness goes a long way.

 

Raena lays in mommy's lap and gets loving

Yep, life is gooooooood.

 

 

          That’s so true sissy. We’ll be lookin’ out fur any kitties that happen to come our way. And, we’ll be purrayin’ fur all of you and all those we don’t know who might not be as blest as we are. We luv you all so much and are so grateful to have you in our lives. Each of you are a blessing we count every day. 

 

 Kitten and rose animated for you emoji

They are and we do, Raena. We’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. We’d also like to remind ya’ that we won’t be postin’ tomorrow. The innernets are already startin’ to act all wonky and slow, so we’ll be unplugged as they say, enjoyin’ some of those Fanksgivin’ left overs. 

 

 Animated thank you rose

 

          Don’t furget sissy, we’re also linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies

 

Ya’ just did Raena.
