Chatting Cats: Rabbit Morsels on a Plate #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Sissy, will you hurry and eat your brekky, so we can write our review posty?.

 

 Dezi licks lips while eating and Raena plays in the chair behind her

 

 

 

          Don’t you know that eatin’ slow helps aid in digestion and helps ya’ get full faster?

 

 I’s thinkin’ that only applies to humans, sissy. But I’s get that ya’ don’t wanna leave any crumb on the plate. Them rabbits sure are yummy.

This is a sponsored post. We received a small bag of Stella and Chewy’s Freeze Dried food in exchange for our honest opinion. Neither Chewy or Stella and Chewy’s are responsible for the opinions in this post unless otherwise stated. As always, we tell it like we see it. We only bring products we use or have tried and believe would be of interest to you, our friends and readers.

 

 

 

          They sure are Raena. Me’s so glad we got to try ‘em. Me’s hopin’ mommy adds ‘em to our Chewy auto ship so we can have ‘em again. We should purrobably tell everypawdy just what rabbits we’re meowin’ ‘bout. We were really happy to see Stella and Chewy’s Freeze Dried noms available to review from Chewy this month. We’ve eaten the Duck Duck Goose formula befur so we were x’cited to see they’ve added Rabbit to their line up. Knowin’ how much we luv us some rabbit, mommy jumped on it.

She sure did sissy. We received the 3.5 ounce bag of morsels to try. They also come in a 9 ounce bag fur $28.99. There are 6 formulas includin’ the rabbit that are available from $9.49 to $37.99 in sizes rangin’ from the 3.5 ounce bag to 18 ounces. Let’s see what Chewy says ‘bout the Stella and Chewy’s Freeze Dried Raw Absolutely Rabbit Dinner Morsels Cat Food

 Dezi checks out the Stella and Chewy food

Mmmmmm Is that Rabbit?

 

 

 

          We were really happy to see the only meat included in the rabbit formula is actually Rabbit. So offen the name of a food doesn’t accurately reflect the actual contents inside the bag or can. We offen find that foods include turkey or some kind of fish as a 2nd or 3rd ingredient but it’s not listed in the name of the food. So, the Stella and Chewy’s Rabbit formula is all Rabbit. WooHoo 

 

 Dezi sits by Stella and Chewy food

 

 

 

So true sissy. And while we might really luvs a fureshly cooked turkey tom lurkey, we don’t like whatever pawrts of the turkey that are included in cat foods. And as most everypawdy knows, we’re not much fur fish either. I’s luvs these new Rabbit morsels. Purr the description listed at Chewy, these can be fed dry, straight outta the bag. However, since we cats don’t actually drink as much water as we should, we highly recommend adding water or broth to them. The morsels readily soak up the liquid and can be served almost immediately. I’s give ‘em 4 paws up. What ‘bout you sissy?

Before liquids

 

 

          Me luvs ‘em too Raena. Me would also give them 4 paws up. Mommy was really purrleased that they didn’t seem as bony as some of the other formulas. Mommy says too much bone can cause constipation, and that’s not good. So, mommy gave ‘em a thumb up too. She says she withheld one thumb cuz they are a bit pricey. But she did say that most peeps charge more fur rabbit formulas that aren’t even all rabbit. The more she thinks ‘bout it she says she would add an additional 1/2 thumb cuz the food is what it says it is.

Needless to say, the Stella and Chewy’s Rabbit is a hit in our house. Almost as much of a hit as Chewy. You know we luvs us some Chewy. They offur speedy furee shippin’ on all orders of $49.00 and over and speedy flat rate shippin’ on all other orders. They offur an auto ship purrogram that ensures you’ll never run out of your pets faves. And they have all kinds of goodies fur all the furred, feathered, scaled and furless family members in your house. And, they have the greatest boxes ever. You know how much us kitties like a good box.

 

 The Blessing Train

 

 

 

          There’s one last thing we need to do befur we go Raena. The next Blessin’ in our 12 Days of Blessings is: Technology. Technology brought us our catputer that allowed us to make so many amazin’ furiends. Technology brought us the ability to fureeze dry noms so that we can eat raw food anywhere anytime. Technology brought us heaters and ‘lectric blankys, and light and…well, you get the picture.

 

Fanky fanks sissy, that’s a great Blessin’. Let’s go play. We’ve got another great review to get ready.

 

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

Service Cats: Feline Nutrition: The Obligate Carnivore

It’s the one day a week, we focus on educating and writing fur the humans in our lives. We wanna thank all of you fur your questions, comments and readership this past year. Keep the questions comin’. ‘Member, the only dumb question is the one not asked. This will be the last Service Cat Monday post of the year 2017. But, don’t worry, this series will return fur 2018. We haven’t even begun to scratch the surface of the complexities of the Feline Behavior (pun intended). That bein’ said, let’s get the business outta the way and get on with today’s post. The followin’ post will be written in human English fur reader and translator ease. Our Service Cat Monday posts aren’t intended to be an all inclusive Trainin’ Manual but rather Tips, Tricks and Techniques used/developed by mommy A thru her many years of animal trainin’, cats in purrticular. And to offur insight into your questions about Feline Behavior. Ifin you have any questions or topics you would like us to cover, purrlease let us know in the comments section or send us an email. When asking behavioral questions, purrlease be as specific as pawssible. And, ifin you’ve missed any of the posts in this series, you can ketch up by clickin’ the links at the end of this post. Always remember, Training is all ‘bout Repetition and Rewards.

 

 Dezi laying in cat tree in new harness

 

 

 

We get asked a lot about food and proper nutrition for us kitties. As most of you know, we eat a raw freeze dried food and are adamantly opposed to feeding any kitty a kibble only diet. And as most of you also know, we have semi scheduled feedings and don’t believe in leaving food out all the time for kitty. What we mean by Semi-Scheduled, is that we eat at specific times a day. Altho’ breakfast is served when mommy can get up and make our plates, dinner is almost always served within a hour of the same time each day. Those plates are available for a limited time and then empty or not, they disappear until the next meal time when they are replaced with a fresh plate of food. One comparison you can make between kitties and humans is, if you can sleep without getting up to eat, so can we.

 

Dezi watching Raena while they eat

To understand kitty’s nutritional needs, we must look at the feline roots, the wildcat from whence we came. We believe in creation, and that God created the first cats. However, you want to see it, Cats exist and are among the few True Carnivores. We call them Obligate Carnivores, meaning they MUST eat meat to survive. The dictionary says this about Obligate: Biologically essential for survival. Cats Can Not live much less Thrive on a vegan or vegetarian diet. A cat’s teeth are designed to rip flesh and chew meat, muscle and tendons. The cat’s tongue is barbed to help it remove fur and feathers from their prey. Cats lack the physiology required to break down or digest vegetation, starches and/or some carbohydrates.

 

Veggie clip art

 

 

Cats’ require certain Amino Acids such as Taurine, Tryptophan and Arginine that is found in animal flesh. While the human body is capable of breaking down carbs and producing certain Amino Acids on it’s own, the cat must get those from their food. A cat who doesn’t get the required nutrients in their diet, may go blind, suffer muscle loss, other illnesses and even die. A cat in the wild, will also get moisture from their prey. Cats consume blood, predigested vegetation and other wet contents from their kill. This practice has led to a smaller liquid intake by cats and more concentrated urine. We’re all familiar with the overwhelming smell of cat urine. However, fresh water should still be available for kitty at all times.

 

 Meat Meal for pet food

(Meat Meal) Looks more like chicken feed than somethin’ us

kitties can sink our teethies into.

 

 

 

So, let’s take a look at Kibble. It’s a well known fact that the first three ingredients listed make up the largest part of a food/feed. Now we know every bag of kibble lists a moisture content. But, we also know anyone who has ever touched a piece knows there’s nothing moist about kibble. If you were to put a piece of kibble in a spoon full of water, the kibble would soak up all the liquid in no time. So, imagine what it’s doing inside kitty who never drinks their 8 glasses of water a day (mol). No, kitties don’t need 8 glasses of water a day, that part was a joke. But seriously, cats don’t always drink enough water, so when kitty eats something that will absorb any liquid around it, it’s a disaster waiting to happen.

 

 Veggie clip art

Some grain free options. Does a kitty look like a rabbit?

 

 

 

There are 2 basic diets available, regular and grain free. Grain free diets commonly include starches such as potatoes. As we pointed out earlier, cat’s generally Do Not have the ability to break these down. An inability to digest these starches in cats may cause kitty to become gassy, have diarrhea or bloat. Kibble may also cause kitty to gain weight and be at risk of becoming obese. Kibble only diets also increase kitty’s risk of Urinary problems. For many years now, it’s been known that a lot of the pet food manufacturers use less than desirable ingredients in their kibble and even canned feeds. The laws protecting animals and ensuring the quality of food are too often not enforced. Animals that have been euthanized or died from illnesses/disease are often used in the manufacturing of pet feed. Even companies that charge outrageously for their products are guilty of these practices.

 

 Dezi eats Raena's left overs

Me hopes mommy doesn’t ketch me cleanin’ Raena’s plate.

 

 

 

Even more alarming than the above is what happens to a kitty when kibble is left available at all times. Contrary to the belief that kitty will go hungry overnight, or while you’re away at work, we kitty’s were never intended to eat 24/7. And believe it or not, we can even last a few extra hours when you’re running late. Most kitties can safely go without a meal every now and then without any harm or danger to their health (Only healthy cats, not those affected by an illness or disease. Please speak with a VET before fasting any cat who is sick). Let’s talk about kitty’s sniffer and food for a minute. When kitty smells food, a chemical reaction happens that causes kitty’s body to produce needed acids to break down the food for use. When food is left out all the time, kitty’s brain is on overload. The body can quit producing those acids or over produce them which can lead to illness, obesity and even death. A hunting cat isn’t always successful and may not eat every day. We’re not suggesting you fast kitty, but we are saying, kitty doesn’t need to eat all day and night.

 

 Dezi and Raena eat

Dry Freeze dried Primal (not recommended by manufacturer).

Now we luv the gravy. 

 

 

 

A few years ago, me was a grain free kibble eating kitty. Until that is, me got sick and mommy learned me’s urine pH was off the Alkaline charts. Me was on a Semi-Scheduled feeding, but me’s body just couldn’t break down all those potatoes. Me was stubborn and didn’t want to give up me’s kibble. Thankfully, mommy’s more stubborn than me and knew what was best. While we don’t recommend it, mommy began to feed me the Freeze Dried Raw food…DRY. Freeze Dried raw should be reconstituted with water or broth. However, me just wouldn’t eat it, so mommy left it as is. About a week later, mommy began serving me’s freeze dried raw on a damp/wet plate. A week later she used her fingers to sprinkle water across the top. The next week, she added a spoonful of water and so on. Now me can’t imagine eating a food without that delicious gravy. The more the better me meows.

 

 Raena watches Dezi sniff the Thirsty Cat fountain

 

 

 

We also added water fountains to make drinking more appealing and fun. After much research and many calls to pet food manufacturers about their ingredients and manufacturing policies, we eat and recommend the Primal line of foods. They truly use human grade ingredients. Yes, it costs a bit more than kibble or canned, but it’s the next best thing to mommy making our food herself. And, for those who don’t want to touch raw ingredients or need easy raw food due to travel, it’s convenient. Me’s urine pH is healthy and normal now, and Raena and me are generally healthy and happy.

 

 Dezi eats while Raena watches from the side.

Me’s lappin’ up the last of the gravy so mommy can add more.

 

 

 

If you’re not ready to make the Raw leap, canned food is the next best choice. It is a myth that kibble cleans kitty’s teeth. It is also a myth that a Persian cat and a Siamese cat have different nutritional needs or require breed specific formulas. That’s one of the craziest money grabbing schemes we’ve ever heard. All Cats are Obligate Carnivores and therefore require the same nutrition…MEAT. Not meat by products or meat meal made up of some unknown animal parts or plant proteins. Mommy says when deciding what meats to feed us, she likes to think about our wild ancestors. She asks the question, What kind of meat would kitty hunt for if left to their own devices? Very few cats actually fish. Most of a cat’s food sources come from land mammals who eat both meat and vegetation and supply kitty with all the nutrition he/she requires. 

 

 The Blessing Train

 

Well we do hope this has helped some of ya’. Obviously, this is a huge topic and there’s much more we could have added. So, ifin ya’ want us to expound more, let us know. Fur now, we’re gonna wrap this up and do some more Christmas purrep. Don’t furget to leave your questions, comments and/or topics below or send us an email. And, you can ketch up on any posty you may have missed by clickin’ the links below. One last thing, our Blessing today is Good Food and Nutrition. Fanks mommy, fur lookin’ out fur us.

(Some time in the morning when Dezi, Raena and mommy A are laying in bed……Asleep?) Hey, Raena, are you awake? Raena? RaenaBelle!!! 

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

 

 

          (Raena stretches out a paw toward Dezi and yawns) What sissy? Did I’s miss somethin’? 

 

Me’s thinkin’ it’s time to get up. Me’s gettin’ hungry.

 

          I’s don’t wanna get up sissy. It’s too cold. I’s wanna stay right here snuggled up to mommy. (mommy starts moving her head and tells the girls she needs to get up) No mommy, let’s sleep just a little longer.

 

 Dezi looks at Raena from atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

(Dezi and Raena lay still a few minutes and then Dezi gets up and starts massaging mommy’s tummy. Raena knowing that will cause mommy to need to get up paws at Dezi)  Stop hittin’ me Raena! Me wants to get up. It’s time fur Blest Sunday and church. Help me get mommy up. Ifin she doesn’t get up, she’ll never turn on the heat. And let me tell ya’, nopawdy’s house should be below 50°. Me knows mommy wouldn’t have let it happen to our house ifin she’d known it was gonna get so cold.

 

 

          (Raena paws at Dezi once more and then moves in to position to massage mommy and help her get off the bed) Okay sissy, let’s get up. I’s am feelin’ a bit hungry mine’s self. I’s could go fur a nice plate of rabbit and duck and maybe a nice warm nip tea. We are so Blest to have such yummy noms. And a nice warm toasty place to sleep. With all the colds everywhere I’s sure do worry ‘bout all the kitties livin’ outside. 

 

Me too Raena. Me’s so happy that we’ve been goin’ out a few times a week lookin’ fur feral and stray kitties to feed. We actually found one the other night. Just in case there was more, mommy left purrlenty of food to feed several kitties. We couldn’t tell ifin the kitty we saw was a girly or a boy cuz it wouldn’t come close enuff and it was so dark and cold. But, we said a purrayer and asked God to take care of her/him and we’ll go back to leave some more food soon.

 

 Raena draped on the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          I’s glad we’re doin’ that too sissy. I’s wanna go with mommy the next time. Maybe the kitty just needs a furiend to show her/him that mommy’s not gonna hurt ’em. Altho’ she does look kind’a scary ifin ya’ don’t know her. Havin’ lost her coat, she gets all bundled up in a couple of shirts and pairs of pants to go out. She looks kind’a like a crazy woman. MOL

 

That’s okay Raena, she’s our crazy mommy and we luv her. Hey, did you see that Annie and Pierrot hopped on the Blessin’ Train?

 

          I’s did sissy. I’s was so happy. And did you see the package we got the other day? Mommy says it’s a Christmas purresent from awnty Belinda. She won’t let us have it till Christmas, but we sure do fanky fank ya’ awnty Belinda. Mommy says she knows we’re gonna luvs it. 

 

 Dezi lays on cat tree

 

 

 

Yep Raena, me can’t hardly wait. We got mews ‘bout our visitin’ the nursin’ home this past week. Seems we’re not gonna be allowed to go anymore. They’re only allowin’ church groups from their town unless you’re a family member. Mommy said she’d look ‘round to see ifin there was any place else we could go to, but it looks like we’ll be carolin’ at home this year.

 

          I’s gonna miss all the attention we got from all thoe residents sissy. But I’s glad we still carol here. I’s luvs Christmas songs and singin’ ‘bout Jesus. 

 

 The Blessing Train

 

 

Me too Raena, me too. I’s think that should be our Blessin’ this week fur the Blessing Train. Altho’ Jesus wasn’t actually born on Christmas day, me’s pawfully glad He was born. Me just luvs hearin’ the Christmas story of Jesus’ birth.

 

 Dezi and Raena on the Jesus Blessing Tree

 

 

 

          W purray and ask Him to bless, watch over and purrvide fur all our furiends every day. We also gotta link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies.

HexBug for Cats

Let me tell ya’, these things are sooooooo much fun. We got one of these buggers in our Hooligan in a Can purrize pack from Cat Scouts. As soon as mommy turned him on, we were off and running. I’s will say, he works bestest on non carpeted floors. But, kitty HexBugs are great fur hours of fun and a great source of some pawsum action shots fur all you fotographers out there. There are several places to get your HexBug from the creators website to amazon. They run anywhere from $4.99 to $19.99. They don’t specifically make a HexBug fur doggies, but there are some bigger bugs that we think any woofie would enjoy as well.

 

 

          Great choice Raena.

Kitty Kick Stix

 

Discount code with Dezi and Raena together on either end of the Kitty Kick Stix

 

 

 

          Me’s furst pick is those pawsum Kitty Kick Stix we just reviewed (see our review here). They’ve got a kicker fur every kitty.

That’s a good one sissy.

 

Frisco 33.5” Scratching Post

Dezi stretches on the scratching post

 

 

 

Mine’s next pick is the Frisco 33.5” Scratching Post from Chewy.com. We not only reviewed this pawsum scratcher, we liked it enuff to ask if we could give one away (see our review here). This scratcher is tall enuff fur even the larger housecat breeds. And it’s purrlenty sturdy, so it’s sure to be liked by the kitties on your list. You can find it on Chewy fur $32.99. And, it comes in brown and cream.

 

          And, we know every kitty needs a good scratcher, don’t we Raena?.

 

Garfield Cat Litter

Raena looking at the Garfield cat litter

 

 

 

          Speakin’ of a kitty’s needs Raena, every kitty needs a good litterbox filled with a great litter. One of our top choices fur the latter is the Garfield Cat Litter. There’s still time to get in on our current give away too. Just click here to check it out.

Litter Robot Open Air III with Garfield Cat Litter

 

 

 

When it comes to automated litterboxes, our choice is the Litter Robot Open Air III. Stay tuned fur our review. We’ve haven’t decided ifin it’s a toy or a litterbox. Hey, maybe, it’s both!!! MOL Like I’s said, you’ll have to wait fur the review. But, we do luv it. Now, we realize this is purretty ‘spensive. But, when ya’ think ‘bout the fact that you’ve gotta have a litterbox, and somepawdy’s gotta do the scoopin’, then we think this makes perfect sense. It’s got features out the wazoo to make the peeps happy and functions purrfectly fur a kitty’s needs. It runs $449.00 and comes ready to go outta the box…just add litter and kitty.

Yeowww Nip Nanner

Dezi bathes in front of the fireplace with the nip nanner in reach

 

 

 

          Anyways, what kind of kitties would we be ifin we didn’t list the famous Yeowww nip nanner? At only $5.99 at Chewy, ya’ can’t go wrong. It’s full of purremium grade catnip to delight every kitty. Okay, maybe not every kitty, but most.

Just Kitten Around Coffee Mug

Dezi walks away while mommy shows off her new mug

 

 

 

I’s would like to suggest that huge coffee mug Chewy sent mommy a while back. She says it’s purrfect and adorably cute. And at $9.99 every kitty luvver will have a big smile with their coffee, tea or hot chocolate.

 

          That’s fur sure a good one, Raena.

 

Cat Shelf

Raena lays on wall perch on the cat tree

This is great mommy. Ya’ gotta hang it up? I’s couldn’t wait.

 

 

 

          Ya’ know, we haven’t listed any purrches fur us kitties. We received a great Cat shelf from the wonderful cats at Art of Paws. It’s a family run business, 1 purrson and 4 cats. Now that’s me’s kind of business. MOL Anyways, the shelf we received if just purrrrrrrrfect. Very well made and it looks just bootyful. It has 2 removable washable covers, soft wool or a ridged fibre type. And, it’ll hold up to 33 pounds. That means it’s purrfect fur us. It comes with everythin’ you need to get it up on the wall includin’ the wall anchors. Ifin ya’ live in a small space like we do, you know you have to take advantage of the vertical space. ‘Course, anypawdy who knows cats, knows, we like the high places anyways. This shelf is only $39.95 and worth every penny. So, mommy, when are we gonna have a whole wall covered in these purrches? MOL

Chatting Cats: A Gooey Lounge Play Date

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. You’re never gonna guess who came over fur a play date. Look’it, It’s the beautiful ginger Annie and her handsum smart eared brofur Pierrot from the Gooey Lounge. We’re so glad ya’ll could paw over fur a play date.

 

Dezi, Annie, and Pierrot lay on the floor

          Dezi: We sure are. Kittens!!! Raena never stops. Me hears you like to romp and play too, Pierrot.

 

     Pierrot: I sure do. I love to play and run. (Raena and Pierrot start zooming down the hall, leaving Dezi and Annie sitting in the chair

 

          Dezi: (Shakes head) Young’un’s!!! Well, maybe those two will tire each other out. Me’s glad we’ve got a few minutes to ourselves. We just luv ya’ll, even tho’ we haven’t known ya’ that long. Me knows we have lots of furiends that’s never even met ya’, so why don’t you tell us a little ‘bout ya’ll. 

 

 Dezi lays on arm of chair while Annie lays in chair

 

 

 

     Annie: Thanks Dezi, and thanks for inviting us over. I’m an 11 year old orange tabby and I came to live with the lady and big guy, that’s what we call our mom and dad; 6 years ago. My previous owners were moving and going to put me in a shelter back in California. I was so very scared at first. It broke the lady’s heart to see how terrified I was.

 

          Dezi: Mommy’s…they luv us so much don’t they?

 

     Annie: At first I wasn’t so sure. But with a lot of changes, I’m very happy and comfortable in my home now. I love the lady and big guy so much. You know, they saved my life, I just know it.

          Dezi: Girl, we are two of the blestest kitties ever. We’ve got the bestest pawrents in the universe. Give me the low down on Pierrot. We just luv his little ears. We think they give him so much purrsonality. 

 

     Annie: He’s got personality to spare then. Pierrot’s 5 years old and 3 years ago the lady and big guy just thought they had to have him. They adopted him from Save the Cats, a local animal rescue that fosters homeless kitties. Really, he’s not that bad. And, a year earlier the big guy had lost his beloved Simba and really needed a new friend. I guess it’s really nice that they saved Pierrot. I’m used to him now. I’m sure you know all about that. MOL

          Dezi: Me sure does. At least we have humans with purrlenty of luv to share. How did ya’ll start bloggin’?

 

     Annie: Pierrot and I actually inherited the blog. The lady started blogging back in 2009 for her then kitty Lucy. Of course Simba made a few guest appearances, and then came me and finally Pierrot. The lady had wanted to meet some kitties and people who love cats to share stories and photos with. 

 

Raena: (Raena and Pierrot run through and zoom up the Liberty cat tree) Hey, ya’ll come over here with us. We purromiss not to whacky paw anykitty. 

 

 Dezi, Raena, Annie and Pierrot lay on the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

     Annie: I don’t think I can climb up there, my first people had my claws removed. And sometimes my short back legs don’t work just right. 

 

 

Raena: No worries gawjus. Just give mommy “the look”, she’ll help ya’ up and down all day long. She’s the bestest. (Mommy A helps Annie on the tree and gives them all some treats Annie and Pierrot had brought with them) Fanky fanks fur the treats ya’ll, they’re yummy. What kinds of things do ya’ll like to do at home?

 

 

 Dezi, Raena, Annie and Pierrot lay on the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

     Annie: I love cozy blankets and sun puddles. We both do really. One of my favorite things is spending the evenings with the lady while she reads or watches teevee. She gives me belly rubs and chin scritches and I just purr and purr. I also love grass with a passion. Sometimes the lady grows me a fresh pot. The lady works from home and sometimes takes short breaks just to spend time with me. I guess you girls are right, we really are the most blest kitties ever. I also like to play with catnip toys. Of course, not too many cats don’t right? 

 

     Pierrot: I Love catnip toys too, Annie. And balls and mousies, and well just about everything.

 

Raena: Me too Pierrot, me too. 

 

 Raena and Annie lay on the Liberty Cat tree

 

 

 

     Annie: Well, we better get back home if I’m going to spend the evening with the lady. We sure do appreciate your kind hospitality and friendship.

 

          Dezi: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaw Fanks. We luv ya’ll too. We’re really glad to be your furiends. Give the lady and the big guy some purrs from us and come back anytime.

Raena: Sissy, we have the bestest furiends in the universe. Ya’ know what else we need to do today? We need to pick our Blessin’ fur the Blessing Train.
