Blest Sunday Strolls

Dezi looks at the camera from the Liberty cat tree

Meowllo and welcome to a pawsumly Blest Sunday. It’s been a long hot week, but a lot has happened. It ain’t all good, but you know us, we always try to make d bestest of any situation. Guess me should start with Raena. You know Raena be “in training” right now and pawrt of dat trainin’ is to get used to different peeps and situations. To get us used to those kinds of things, mommy takes us out and ‘bout our little town. Da folks here know to ask befur touchin’ us, and always wanna make over us. So it gives us experience with noisy strangers peekin’ at us, pointin’ at us, and furinally pettin’ us.

Well mommy had kinda let down on takin’ Raena out early on cuz of da heat. With no a/c or workin’ windows in da car, it meant dat Raena got overheated really fast, like what happened after her last VET ‘pointment; not to mention what da heat does to mommy. And quite frankly, mommy was really scared we were gonna lose Raena after dat last VET ‘pointment. Anyways, you all know mommy’s been tryin’ to find somepawdy to help ‘round da house, right?. Well when a somepawdy came by fur an innerview and Raena got scared and started to run, mommy knew, heat or know heat, a/c or no a/c, Raena was gonna have to go out into da public. So mostly late in da day, Raena and mommy have been takin’ trips to town. Raena’s furinally big enuff to sit in da stroller, so she’s been getting’ to go fur strolls. And guess what? She’s luvvin’ it. Sure ‘nuff, she can’t get enuff of da stroller. Fanks again awnty Jennifer and grand awnty Peggy. Mommy can’t take her too far in it, cuz we don’t have a harness small enuff fur her yet, so we can’t secure her in; but short strolls and trips are okay. Mommy just watches her like a hawk. And mommy even gets a little treat outta their trips. She’s been havin’ a sweet tooth lately, and most of da places they go have a take one free candy dish. MOL

Anyways, God’s always lookin’ out fur us, and sent angels to help us with dat a/c purroblem. So mommy trekked over drove to da garage to see ‘bout getting’ us some cool air. Da mechanic decided to double check his furst opinion and fank catness he did, cuz it wasn’t what he furst thought. Altho’ it appeared much worse. Da cost of da pawrt was gonna be waaaaaaay to high. Like in da $600.00 – $700.00 range. And dat was just fur da pawrt. They hadn’t even started talkin’ labor. Mommy felt so defeated and sad when she left da garage dat day. But hey, this is da catputer age. It’s harder fur peeps to take advantage of ya’ ifin ya’ just do a little research. So after dryin’ her tears and coolin’ off a bit, mommy got on da catputer and found dat altho’ dat pawrt was ‘spensive, it wasn’t no $600.00 – $700.00. So we have a ‘pointment on Wednesday to get us some cool air, and a much cheaper pawrt waitin’ to be installed in da car. WooHoo!!!  Fank you God and purrlease bless those angels.

And ya’ know what else? Dat somepawdy who came by fur an innerview to help ‘round da house? Well, mommy was able to hire her. She passed da OSBI background check and da state approved her application. When mommy called her, she said she’d been waitin’ on our call and she starts this week. We sure do hope it works out. We’ll keep ya’ posted on dat one. She’s young and has kids and a husband. She’s just lookin’ to get outta da house fur a few hours, so this job is purrfect fur her ifin she doesn’t mind workin’. Dat’s somethin’ we’ll find out soon enuff.

Showdown On The Cat Tree

OMC Mommy, da weekend is finally here. Me thought it was never gonna get here. And what do you think ‘bout the pain in me’s hiney lil Raena jumpin’ in da shower yesfurday like she was gonna help you or somethin’? (shakes head) Me’s tellin’ ya’ dat kid sometimes thinks she’s too big fur her own bloomers. Did you see her try to take dat treat outta me’s mouth da other day? And what’s up with her constantly dirtyin’ up me’s pawdee box. Doesn’t she know da other pawdee box is hers? She has no respect mommy. Me’s tellin’ ya’, me thinks you made a mistake or somethin’. Can we return her? 

 Dezi getting mommy loving and petting.

     Return me? Too big fur mines bloomers? Y, Sis Dezi I’s just wanna be like you. I’s wanna do everythin’ da same way you do. You’s minez hero. Mines amazingly pawsum big sisfur. 

Raena up close on top of the stroller

Layin’ it on a bit thick don’cha’ think Raena? 

 Dezi and Raena lay in th floor

 

     Whatever do you mean sissy?  (Raena meows with a look of concern on her innocent face)

 

Alright girls, enough. I’ve got a migraine. (Dezi and Raena both scurry to give mommy a massage before the other, and then a small game of whacky paw ensues over who was there first) Girls!!! You can each massage a side. Now Dezi, we are blest to have Raena in our lives. She loves you and looks up to you, just like you did with sis Lexi all those years ago. And Raena, you need to learn not to jump on sis Dezi constantly, especially when she’s in the pawdee box. That’s just not nice. And do you remember when you bit your tail the other day and yelled? Well, don’t be biting sis Dezi’s tail. Just because it doesn’t hurt you, doesn’t mean it don’t hurt.

Yeah Raena, what mommy said. 

     Well same to you sis Dezi.

(Both head for the top of the cat tree and the showdown commences.)

Bonito Flakes #ChewyInfluencer

Meowllo everypawdy. As you may ‘member, sis Raena learned da joys of freeze dried treats last week when she took over our monthly Chewy review posty. Well as ya’ know we usually get 2 pawsum products from Chewy each month to try out and review. So, those pawsum treats weren’t da only things we got to try. Mommy and me checked da offerin’s over and decided on another treat dat me has had a luv hate relationship with to try out and to introduce Raena to. What is it ya’ ask? Y, It’s Cat-Man-Doo Extra Large Dried Bonito Flakes. Sure ‘nuff we got us a .5 oz bag of flaky dried tuna.

Now me knows ya’ wanna know why me has a luv hate relationship with these treats, specially da hate pawrt right? To tell da truth, me just never could figger out how to eat ‘em. Me’s a biter. No, not of mommy, but me bites at food. Me doesn’t lick me’s food, me’s bites each piece and chews it up. Well, ya’ just can’t bite thin air, and dat’s ’bout how thin these bonito flakes are. Have you ever seen a kitty bitin’ air befur? It ain’t as funny as it may look. Ya’ know we ain’t getting’ anythin’ out of it. No sir, da air doesn’t taste like anythin’ and it certainly isn’t nutritious. Anyways, befur me gets too far off track, let me tell ya’ ‘bout these Cat-Man-Doo Extra Large Dried Bonito Flakes. They were extra large, and befur me knew it me was lickin’ ‘em outta mommy’s hand. Oh da taste of tuna meltin’ on me’s tongue. (drifts off in thought while licking lips) As ya’ know we don’t really eat fish, so we’s never really developed a taste fur it. But mommy has always allowed bonito flakes in small quantities fur those kitties dat would eat it. Now dat me’s finally learned to lick those nommy flakes, me sure hopes fur more.

 Dezi eating Bonito flakes

Da only ingredient is Bonito (tuna). These can also be used as a topper fur da finicky feline. And they’re purrfect fur doggies too. They come in 3 sizes, and range in price from $3.99 to $19.48. These are high protein, low fat treats, and me luvs ‘em. A meowsy big 4 paws up from me. And ya’ know comin’ from me, dat’s sayin’ somethin’. Now me knows you’re all wonderin’ ‘bout Raena, right? Well she’s chompin’ at da bit to tell ya’, so let’s ask?

     Oh Dezi, I’s luvs these treat things. Why don’t we get them more offen? 

 Raena eats a bonito flake

Raena, just tell everypawdy what you thought ‘bout da Cat-Man-Doo Bonito Flakes

     Oh, okay sissy. I’s could smell ‘em thru da bag. And I’s couldn’t wait fur mommy to get da bag open. Mommy says it’s funny and must be a Ragdoll thing, cuz I’s bite mines food just like you do. So I’s didn’t get da furst few bites, cuz I’s kept breakin’ ‘em and knockin’ outta mommy’s hand. Notice in da foto above, I’s finally just held on to mommy’s hand to hold those flakes still. When I’s finally got dat furst piece in mines mouth…OMC  I’s started lickin’ everythin’, mommy da floor, her shoes, I’s even tried lickin’ a piece outta your mouth.

 Raena eating her first bonito flake

Me ‘members. Guess ya’ won’t be doin’ dat again any time soon, huh? (Dezi snickers) Now just get on with tellin’ da folks what ya’ thought. 

     Okay Dezi. I’s luvs, luvs, luvs those yummy Bonito flakes. I’s all paws in, uh, I’s mean 4 paws up. When do ya’ reckon we can get some more sissy? 

 Raena eating bonito flakes

Hopefully soon Raena, hopefully soon. Maybe you could go bug mommy and see what she says. Me asked mommy what she thought ‘bout da Bonito flakes and she said she luvs dat they are a one ingredient natural and healthy treat dat she can also sprinkle over our food ifin we’re not eatin’ ‘enuff. And she likes dat da Cat-Man-Doo Bonito Flakes are bigger than most so she can actually monitor how many pieces we get. So she’s a 2 thumbs up vote. Me knows you all want your own bag now, right?
