The Blessing of the Pets 2013

As we told you the other day, yesterday was the Blessing of the Pets at our Church.  Mom decided that Ellie and Allie should stay home since it was hot out and they have all that floof and are..um....Mature LadyCats.

I hope you enjoy the slideshow that Mom put together.  I was a really good boy.  I howled at the top of my lungs   quietly meowed a couple of times on the way down and was purrfectly quiet on the way home.

We love that the church does this! The mom would love to take us to her church for blessing too, but she's afraid we wouldn't handle it well. Everyone can always use extra blessings and prayers, and a great way to commemorate the kindness of St. Francis.

That is SO cool that you got blessed, Raz! A priest visited PAWS on Friday, and blessed all the animal there, too. :)

Raz, what a good boy you are to behave so well and what a lucky boy to get to go to that service. Great video.

Hadn't heard anything here about blessings for the animals on Oct. 4th. It was so nice to see all of the pets attend your blessing, and, Raz, you were a big part of it for us!

very very special.. Lovely.. HUgs GJ x

Kitties Blue said...

Raz, it was great to see a variety of animals brought to be blessed. Were you the only kitty there? We bet you were quiet on the way home. Staying on guard while around so many strangers is hard work. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Austin Towers said...

How neat. Guess Raz enjoyed it.
The animals (from what we've heard and what we see here) behave at these blessing ceremonies.

WOW Raz, you were so good! We are lucky, our Priest comes to our house for us.
