Dezi: MeOW C’mon Raena, it’s Blest Sunday. And, it’s Father’s day, we’ve gotta celebrate.
Raena: Father’s day? Is this another special day fur mommy? Are we s’posed to be doin’ somethin’ nice fur her? Cuz ya’ know ifin we are, you already spoiled it when she had to get up befur she even got to have one sip of her meownin’ coffee.
Yeah, well, we hadn’t started celebratin’ yet Raena. Anyways, we do celebrate mommy today but that’s only cuz we don’t actually have one of those daddy’s.
So, this is a holiday fur men. What ‘bout all our uncles, sissy? Are we celebratin’ them too?
Yep Raena, we are. Like with mother’s, bein’ a father is somethin’ to be celebrated whether your kids have 2 legs and skin or 4 legs and fur. Traditionally, the father did the suppurrtin’ of the family and were offen the heavy hand when it came to discipline. But times, they are a changin’, and there are more and more single family households where the mother or father have to be both. So to all the Fathers, Uncles and other men, Happy Father’s day. And to all those fillin’ the shoes of a Father, Thank you fur steppin’ up.
Hey sissy, since we’re celebratin’ men today, why don’t we celebrate the cat man who came up with the Cat Amazing Puzzle Toy? Ya’ know, it ain’t just women who luvs us kitties. The world is full of feline luvvin’ men. We should know, we’ve got some really amazin’ uncles.
That’s true Raena, and me thinks today’s a great day to meow ‘bout the Cat Amazing Puzzle Toy. Andrey is the cat guy behind this great puzzle toy. But, he does more that just make a great eco-furiendly puzzle box, he also gives back to shelters and rescues with his Shelter and Rescue Enrichment Progam. Shelters can apply to receive their very own Cat Amazing Puzzle Toys complete with educational play guides and discounts fur new cat adoptive pawrents. You know how much we luv it when a company gives back and tries to help those kitties in need.
We sure do sissy. That’s why we had to meow to everypawdy ‘bout this. Stay tuned, cuz we’ve got a couple of great surpurrises fur everypawdy at the end of this posty. Furst, I’s wanna meow ‘bout the Cat Amazing Puzzle Box. It arrived in a really cute flat package. That meant there would be some assembly required.
Yep Raena, and that’s not always a good thing. We don’t have any thumbs and sometimes all mommy has is thumbs. MOL Anyways, she furinally got the Puzzle put together and looked fur just the right toy to hide in it.
Yeah sissy, the instructions say you can hide treats or toys in it to make us kitties wanna play with it. We don’t get a lot of treats, so makin’ us hunt fur them isn’t somethin’ we’re all that innerested in. But, we do luvs toys with balls, ‘specially those lighted flashin’ balls. Just so happens, we had an extra one layin’ ‘round that mommy could put in there.
Yep Raena, the Cat Amazing has 3 difficulty levels, dependin’ on your kitty’s purr-efurence. All kitties are smart, so none of the levels are too hard fur us. We purrsonally think this toy is great fur kittens and those extra curious kitties. Me purrfurs a roll with a good nip toy, but Raena…OMC she just doesn’t stop.
I’s not sure ifin you’re bein’ naughty or nice sissy? However, I’s do enjoy boppin’ the flashy ball ‘round inside the Cat Amazng puzzle box. So, we were really happy when Andrey said he’d let us give away a couple Puzzle boxes to our American furiends and even send one of those cool Shelter Enrichment kits to the shelter/rescue of our choice.
Sure ‘nuff Raena. And, we’ve decided to let all of our furiends choose the Shelter/rescue who will receive this pawsum kit. So, we’re askin’ all of you to nominate the shelter/rescue you’d like to see receive the kit. We’ll take nominations thru Caturday 6/23/2018. Purrlease only nominate shelters/rescues in the U.S.A. and that you can purrvide shippin’ infurmation fur. Then we’ll put those names in a random drawing and pick the winnin’ shelter.
Oh sissy, I’s so x’cited. I’s can’t hardly wait to see who’s shelter’s gonna win. But hey, the fun doesn’t stop there. ‘Member, Andrey’s lettin’ us give away 2 of these great puzzles to our furiends with a U.S. shippin’ address. You must leave a comment on this post to qualify fur the give away. And, you can earn extra entries thru the rafflecopter. Just click Enter Here foto below.
Yep Raena, what a blessin’. As always, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the blessings in your lives.

MeOW Welcome to Service Cats and Everything Feline on Furidays. Sorry we missed you all last week, we were on overload and and couldn’t be here. Anyways, we’re back now and can’t wait to tackle our next topic/question. As always, you can ketch up on any post in this series by clickin’ on Training Tips and Everything Feline in our menu. And, don’t furget to leave your questions and topic suggestions in the comments below or send us a purrivate e-mail via our Contact page. Now, let’s get the business outta the way and get on with today’s posty.
With Independence day just around the corner here in the U.S., we thought we’d spend a little time reminding everyone about some safety issues for the furry members of your household. We get asked often what human foods are dangerous for us kitties. Everybody wants to have a good time, unfortunately, us anipals don’t always find human gatherings fun. If you’re planning a party or get together remember to plan ahead and set up a Decompression Room so that your favorite furry can get away from all the hustle and bustle of the festivities. If you’ll be setting off fireworks yourself, remember to keep them away from your pets. An animals hearing is much better than that of a humans’ so the sound of fireworks can be extrememly loud and frightning to us furries.
Toxic Foods & Party Favors:
Remind everyone not to feed your pets. Not everything fit for human consumption is good fur kitty/woofy. Here’s a list of some foods and other party items you want to avoid giving your anipals:
Alcohol of any kind, Marijuana, Tobacco and Nicotene Products, Candy (especially chocolate), Anything with Xylitol (sweeteners, gum, diet sodas, etc,), Coffee and other Caffeinated Beverages, Nuts, Grapes, Garlic and Garlic Powder, Onions and Onion Powder, Raisins, Avocados, Fruit Seeds, Yeast Dough, Citrus, Milk, Cooked Bones, Tofu, Moldy Foods and Mushrooms. Symptoms of poisoning can range from lethargy to kidney disease and/or death.
Parties can often be felt the next day as well. Here’s a list of some medications to avoid giving your anipals:
Tylenol or Acetaminophen, ADHD medications or Human Antidepressants unless prescribed by your V-E-T, Aspirin (for cats), Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Pseudoephedrine, Flea Meds with Permethrins (for cats), and Narcotic Pain Meds (unless prescribed by your V-E-T). Even tho’ some human meds are prescribed for us anipals, you should avoid giving us anything not prescribed by a licensed Veterinarian.
Somebody’s always left with the after party clean up. Here’s a list of some household items and party favors you should keep away from your pets:
Antifreeze, Cleaners (especially those containing bleach), Glow Sticks and their luminescent liquid, Potpourri, Rat and Mouse Poisons, Streamers and Strings, Fireworks containing Gun Powder and Sparklers, Essential Oils and Candles.
Foods You & Fluffy/Fido Can Share:
MeOW That sure is a lot of no no’s, isn’t it? No worries, you don’t always have to say No. Kitties and woofies can have a few bites of Cheddar Cheese, Hamburger Patties (without the seasonings), Brisket and Ribs (without seasonings), small quantities of All Meat Weiners, Watermelon and/or Cantaloupe (without the rind and seeds), Plain Yogurt, Chicken (without the bones or seasonings) and Pumpkin (not Pumpkin Pie filling). Just remember to keep in mind the amount of special goodies kitty/woofy eats and adjust regular meals accordingly.
Did somepawdy say treats?
Some Things To Remember:
If you’re grilling on a coal barbeque, remember to make sure all coals are out and cool before leaving it unattended. If your celebrations include a fire pit or bonfire, make sure the fire’s completely out before leaving it unattended. If you’re celebrating in the park or campgrounds, pick up after yourself and your anipals. Be considerate of others so the fun can continue. And always keep the number for Poison Control and your V-E-T on hand, just in case. You know what they say, “Better safe than sorry.” If you suspect that your anipal has been poisoned, don’t hesitate, call your V-E-T immediately.
Well, there ya’ have it, some things to keep in mind for the coming celebrations. Father’s day is Sunday and there’s sure to be a few celebrations honoring dads everywhere. We celebrate our mommy, who has to be both fur us. Don’t furget to leave your questions or topic suggestions in the comments below or send us an e-mail. We luv hearin’ from you all. And, check out our previous topics by clickin’ on the Training Tips and Everything Feline links in our menu. We’re also joinin’ Comedy Plus fur Feline Furiday. We hope you all have a safe and blest Summer.
Till the next time………………………………………………….Be Blest!!!

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. It’s gonna be one of those days. Mommy’s not yet finished her furst cup of coffee and she’s already yellin’ at her new smarty pants fone. I’s not sure who Okay Google is, but accordin’ to mommy she’s a bossy idiot.
RaenaBelle!!! Me thinks you’re usin’ the idiot word too much these days. It’s just not nice.
But sissy, that’s what mommy said. She told her she didn’t wanna go that way to the dentist this time, she wanted to go thru Ardmore. And all that Okay Google could say is “hmmmmm I don’t know how to help you with that.” Mommy’s been screamin’ at her to quit redirectin’ the directions to the quickest route. Ya’ know, mommy wants to take a safer route today, but she needs that silly fone fur directions. (Raena shakes her head)
Well Raena, ya’ know mommy’s eyes aren’t what they used to be and it’s hard fur her to see the writin’ on the maps. Me knows she was lookin’ at the atlas last night and mumblin’ ‘bout the tiny purrint and gettin’ old.
Well sissy, sounds like we need to learn how to read a map so we can give mommy directions.
Sure Raena, me will put that right up there with make mommy a cup of coffee. We kitties can’t read the map any more than mommy can. Besides, me heard mommy say that she’d just go to Ardmore and then ask the silly smarty pants fone fur directions.
Sounds like mommy’s outsmarted the smarty pants fone to me, sissy. I’s knew our mommy was smart. Meowin’ of dentists, fanky fankfully, we got our money back from Aspen Dental over the weekend so mommy can pay the new dentist today. I’s so glad we don’t have to deal with those peeps anymore.
Me too Raena. Mommy used to get so stressed befur her ‘pointments that she almost made herself sick. Meowin’ of ‘pointments, did you see the card me got from the V-E-T? They actually wanted me to tell mommy to call them to schedule a ‘pointment fur them to stab and manhandle me. Hmmmpht Like that’s gonna happen. What self respectin’ kitty in their right mind would willingly tell their human to take them to the V-E-T? Not this one me tells ya’. Nope, no way.
What are you lookin’ at? Don’t you be gettin’ any
ideas ’bout pokin’ me with that.
Well, good luck with that one sissy; I’s think mommy already saw the card. Besides, why would you think you could get outta goin’ when I’s had to go the day befur mine’s Gotchaday?
But Raena, you didn’t get poked and jabbed on your visit. They wanna do all kinds of unmeowable things to me. It’s just not fair, me tells ya’, not fair at all. Every year they think they oughtta jab me with their huge needles.
I’s feelin’ all better mommy, let’s go home.
Every year sissy? Does that mean I’s gonna have to go back too? They already tried to kill me the other day. I’s know they’re plannin’ and plottin’ mine’s demise. The kitties in the waitin’ room when we left told me so. Their names were Thelma and Louise. I’s told ‘em to run fur their lives when their carrier doors opened. I’s told ‘em not to stop fur the bonito flakes we left on the table. I’s sure hope they got out okay. They reminded me of your pawsum sis Lexi. They were big ol black tabby kitty girls…and I’s do mean big.
Really Raena? Me hopes they got away too. Ya’ know, we oughtta check fur some new hidin’ spots so mommy won’t be able to find us to take us to the ol stabby place. Me saw you watchin’ mommy drag stuffs outta the furbidden room (closet), did she make enuff room fur us to get in and hide?
It sure looks like fun in there mommy. Where’d you get all that stuffs?
I’s don’t think so sissy. Who knew mommy had that many clothes?. I’s never seen her wear any of ‘em befur?.
Yeah Raena, it’s been a while. Those are mommy’s dressy clothes that she only wears fur special occasions. She hasn’t had much cause to wear ‘em in quite some time. Me does ‘member a time when she’d shimmy and shake into somethin’ called panty hose and shapers and then pull out somethin’ really nice from the furbidden room. Since we go to church at home now, mommy says she doesn’t need to wear the hose and shapers anymore. Truth be told, me doesn’t think they’d fit. MOL
Ooooh Sissy, you better not let mommy hear you meow that. I’s think that might hurt her feelings.
Sometimes the truth hurts, Raena. You know mommy says we should always tell the truth, even ifin it’s not necessarily nice.
Uh, Mommy also says ifin ya’ can’t say somethin’ nice then don’t say anythin’ at all. I’s purretty sure implyin’ mommy’s fat would fall unner that category.
Fat? Me didn’t call mommy fat, you did and me’s tellin’. MOL You’re in trouble now. (Dezi runs to mommy laughing all the way)
(Raena runs after Dezi meowing) Wait!!! Sissy, I’s didn’t call mommy fat, you did. I’s can run faster than you. Besides, I’s the baby, who do you think mommy’s gonna believe? I’s gotta hurry and finish mine’s brekky so we can get ready to go to Tishomingo today. Fanky fankfully, it’s not s’posed to storm today. Maybe we can stop fur some special treats. Ifin you don’t tell mommy, I’s’ll bring you somethin’ back?.
Till the next time…………………………………………Be Blest!!!
