Mommy Calls It Work, But I Call It Fun

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s been livin’ da high life. I’s know, I’s may scare da livin’ daylights outta mommy, but I’s havin’ soooooo much fun. Now I’s not sayin’ dat fall I’s took was any fun, cuz it fur sure wasn’t da highlight of mines life. I’s not ever wanna do dat again. So I’s not spent much time in dat corner again. But there’s so many other pawsum things to get in to. Uh, I’s mean to play with. Fur some reason, mommy keeps yellin’ at me, “Raena, did you not learn anything?” What’s up with dat? I’s not even knows what she’s talkin’ ‘bout.

 Raena plays with the hedgehog

Take last night fur example. Mommy spent most of da day doin’ things she calls, “work”. You know, laundry and cleanin da house. I’s not know why anypawdy would call these things work, they’re sooooooo much fun. Anyways, back to last night. Mommy usually has a lot of stuffs on top of da washin’ machine. Somethin’ ‘bout keepin’ us away from danger. I’s think dat’s just a story she tells cuz there’s not any storage places in da bathroom. ‘Specially now, since I’s broke da shelves she had up. Yeah turns out I’s broke ’em and they can’t be put back up. Mommy’s gotta find somethin’ else to do fur storage now. Anyways, since she was runnin’ dat big machine, da top was bare. Bare I’s tell ya’. Not a thing on it. It was callin’ mines name. I could hear it plain as day. Raena, oh Raena, climb on up here. teeheehee  So I’s found me a way to climb up there and check it all out. OMC You’da thought I’s just jumped in da middle of shark filled waters. Da look on mommy’s face was one dat said she was not amused at all. And she said “NO RAENA!!”, and snatched me up so fast mines head spun. She was chatterin’ da whole time ‘bout Lexi, God rest her, getting’ stuck behind da washer fur a whole day on more than one occasion, and somethin’ ‘bout how she only says no, cuz she doesn’t want me to get hurt. Yeah, yeah sure. I’s thinks she just likes da way No sounds. She sure says it a lot. Well it doesn’t matter cuz she quickly blocked mines access, so there was no more explorin’ da top of da washer, let alone what was behind it. And befur dat snatchin’ I’s did see a lot of great vines fur swingin’ on back there (vines = hoses and cords).

 Raena hiding in the sheets

Mommy’s next feat was to strip da bed. Oh what fun. I’s ran up and down da bed and played jump attack da squares on da mattress pad. WooHoo  Then things got even more fun. Mommy started whoopin’ sheets in da air and onto da bed. Lookit those pawsumly purrple sheets. Sis Dezi said a Christmas angel got those fur mommy, her and her sis Lexi, God rest her, fur Christmas last year. I’s not know what Christmas is , but I’s sure hope I’s have a Christmas angel dat gets me somethin’. 

     RaenaBelle!!! You’re not suppose to say things like dat.

 dw-Raena on sheetDSCN7515 (1024x699)

But why sissy? I’s do want a Christmas angel, cuz I’s want somethin’ fur me.

     You get purrlenty Raena. You have a full belly, a place to live, a comfy bed to sleep in and a furmily who luvs you. It’s not pawlite to ask fur a Christmas angel.

 dw-Raena plays with sheetDSCN7518edit (912x1024)

Well sissy it may not be pawlite, but I’s still hope I’s have one.

Anyways,I’s rolled ‘round in da clean sheets and jumped on ‘em and hid under them. What a cool game mommy, I’s meowed. Mommy would pick me up and put me on da ground to spray da sheets with purrfume every time. I’s didn’t let dat deter me. I’s was back on da bed in no time. Now fur those of ya’ dat don’t know, we have a hospital bed with a memory foam mattress. So mommy has to pick up da mattress to tuck da sheets, cuz her hands don’t fit ‘tween da rails. Mommy learned really quick, and da hard way, ya’ gotta have da rails to keep da mattress on da bed. I’s only heard da story, it all happened long befur I’s was even born; and a story fur another time maybe. Anyways, when mommy lifted da mattress, I’s had to hold on or be thrown. Can you ‘magine bein’ thrown from a buckin’ mattress? Not me, I’s too smawrt fur dat.

 Raena playing on the sheets

Well after da sheets were on da bed and smellin’ good mommy grabbed da blanky and whooped it in da air over da bed and…OMC  feathers went everywhere. Seems some kitty, who will remain nameless, actually put a whole in da down blanky. Have you ever tried to ketch those little downy duck feathers? It’s almost impawssible. But what a game. I’s really like this sheet changin’ day. I’s not know where I’s been fur da rest of them cuz sis Dezi says mommy does it at least once a week, but let me tell ya’, I’s not plan on missin’ another one. Sis Dezi says after a while it gets kinda borin’, I’s can’t ‘magine dat ever happenin’.

 dw-Raena lays on sheetDSCN7520edit (1024x633)

     Me used to think dat too Raena, but trust me. It won’t always be so much fun. 

 dw-Raena on sheetDSCN7517edit (1024x767)

Hey sissy, why don’t you tell everypawdy where you was durin’ da big thunder boomers and storm we’s been havin’? 

 Dezi lays on cardboard scratcher

     Fanks Raena, me hasn’t been able to get a word in cuz you’ve been meowin’ 90 to nuffin’. We have been havin’ storms and even rumblin’ mumblin’ skies this week. There’s also been days when da sky complained without da rain. Don’t know ifin God let da angels win on those days or what, but me just hung out with mommy like you do Raena. And fur those of ya’ dat don’t have a clue ‘bout me’s God and angels refurence, it comes from da story dat mommy’s grammaw told her ‘bout storms and dat she tells us. In short, thunder bommers are God and da angels bowlin’. And when it rains, dat’s da angels tears, they be cryin’ cuz they lost. Da purrtant thing here is dat me’s not been runnin’ under da chair or bed to hide. ‘Stead me’s been hangin’ out and chillin’ just like mommy wants me too.

 Pet Parade banner new

Now dat me got me’s bloggy back from Raena da usurpurr, we’s gonna wrap it up fur today. As we do on all Furidays, we’s joinin’ Rascal and Rocco and their pawsum co-hosts fur da weekly Pet Parade. It’s ‘posed to be stormin’ again today, so we’ll be by to visit as we can. You all know mommy’s paranoid and makes us turn off da catputer durin’ storms; so we’ll be visitin’ as much as pawssible. We hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

  4. Raena I haven’t outgrown the change the bedding day and I’m eight. I love that day and have been known to fall asleep under the fitted sheet. Running from side to side and twirling in a circle when the fresh sheet hits my back is so much fun. It takes mom about 20 minutes to change the bedding when I help. Can you imagine how slow she is without me?

    Have a great weekend my southern belle friends.

    • Oh Shoko this is sooooo much fun. I’s can’t ‘magine any kitty who doesn’t enjoy this activity. Mommy made sure I’s wasn’t stuck under any of da loayers and she kept liftin’ da whole mattress to tuck things in so I’s would start slidin and have to grab onto somethin’ and hold on fur dear life. MOL Enjoy cleanin’ day and bed makin’ day.

      Luvs ya’

  6. Oh, Raena! You had me laughing out loud more than a few times (don’t take that as encouragement!!!!). You remind me a lot of Bear Cat when he was younger. He ripped open one of my comforters and pulled the stuffing out. I’m not going to say anymore because you certainly don’t need any more ideas for getting in trouble. Though Dezi’s right … for the first 5 years or so, all my sheets had rips and holes in them because of Bear’s attacks when I made the bed … the one I’m using now is the first that hasn’t met that fate :p I hope you beautiful ladies have a wonderful weekend! We’re sending all of you our love.
    ps – Yay for Dezi on standing her ground against the thunder … then again, after what Raena’s been through, kitties probably look pretty indestructible 🙂

    • MOL I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s havin’ too much fun. Sis Dezi kneaded and noshed da outter blanky so dat it isn;t evern soft anymore. Mommy says she does it every year and it’s time to buy another befur winter gets here. But mommy also said dat addin’ me to da mix means dat we’ll purrobably go through twice as many blankys now, cuz I’s already noshed da throw mommy put on top of da Dezi eaten blanky. Ya’ know we might be tryin’ to tell mommy to stop buyin’ such cheap edible, undedible junk. MOL Mommy wasn’t da least bit purrleased with all da downy feathers comin’ outta da down comfurter and she says we’s gonna miss them this winter. I’s got no idea what she’s talkin’ ’bout. Didn’t she hear da pawrt ’bout nameless kitty? Who said I’s did it. MOL Big hugs to ya’ll and have a great weekend.

  9. What a little rascal you are Raena Belle, Please be carefull and don’t worry your mom.
    Today we have to tell you about our Blessing!
    We were truly Blest Last night as Hurricane Hermine passed over us with no serious damage, just a lot of leaves and branches to clean up. starting about five o’clock yesterday afternoon,we could hear the wind and the rain outside. It continued all night getting louder and louder. It was scary because we couldn’t see out. (Dad had put storm shutters over all of the windows in our house) That made it even scarier I think, but dad said having a tree or a piece of someones lawn furniture come through a window would be even scarier. Anyway, about 4:00 the wind began to get less loud and the rain diminished. It seemed that the worst of the storm had passed and we finally settled down and went to sleep.
    Today dad is taking the storm shutters down, so we’ll be able to see outside again. After that he’ll be cleaning up our yard. This morning he found two nice cast aluminum lawn chairs that we have never seen before. He says we’ll put them on the sidewalk in front of the house, where whoever owns them can get them.
    We have a large generator that dad installed when his mom lived with us so that she could have air conditioning, and so her oxygen concentrator would work even if we lost city power. (She had difficulty breathing.) Gramma has gone to heaven now, but we still have the big generator. On Wednesday dad checked it out and made sure that the big propane tank was full. Turns out we didn’t even need to start it. Even in the highest winds, our power never did go off..
    We know that we were came through so well, because of the prayers of our friends, and our angels watching over us..
    We thank you ever so much!
    Purrs and Prayers, from all of us to all of you,

    Pete and the Girls.

    • Dat is sooooo wonderful Pete. We’re so glad to hear ya’ll be okay and didn’t even need da generator. Altho’ it must be really nice to have one of those. MEOW, wish we had one. Anyways, tell your daddy not to work too hard cleanin’ up. Hope da lawn chair owners find their stuffs. Keepin’ ya’ll in our purrayers. Have a great weekend.

      Luv ya’
