Feast of St Francis and Flashback Friday

Today is the Feast of St Francis of Assisi.


Every year Mom and Dad pack us in the car and take us to Church for a blessing.  As you can see, Ellie is never happy about it.

Tamir and Allie were cute together...

 This year our blessing will be tomorrow.



 This is Raz's first time going and we hope he behaves!!!

We'll be posting pics on Sunday.  In the meantime, you can see our posts from other years by clicking HERE and HERE.  If you want to learn more about St. Francis, click HERE.

When we were posting those links Mom saw that the first one is from when Mr. Tigger and Samantha took their walkabout.  We sure miss Mr. Tigger and hope he found a new forever home.

My human has always wanted to do this; fortunately she always misses it here (the blessings of the animals is the week before Easter in L.A.), so I've never had to make the trip. Actually, the only one out of us that she would probably bring would be Binga, since travel is so traumatic for me. But I can't wait to see your photos!

I can't imagine any scenario when the human would do that!! I would bless her liberally on the way there and on the way back! But she says it's a very good idea. Can't wait for the pictures :)

This must be quite an event! We can't wait to see photos, and we hope that Raz is a good boy. We don't travel well, so we will have to go unblessed unless someone visits to bless us here.

Every year the mom says she's gonna take us to a blessing...and every year she forgets. Many years ago she did take the cats that came before us.

We can't wait to see pictures of your outing.

You are blessed! They bless the animals here too, but two pups and two kitties would be too much for Mama to take to church! Me-Ommmmm

Flynn said...

That is a lovely idea that you can take your pets to be blessed.

How cool is that to get the anipals blessed. Mom says she has heard about this before but doesn't know if any of our churches around here do it. She says that she'll have to look into it next year. Can't wait to see photos tomorrow. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
