Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle.
Raena, what are you doin’?
I’s took a break from lookin’ out the door. Things are really blowin’ ‘round out there. I’s never seen anythin’ like it. Mommy says it’s cuz this is mine’s furst Spring, and there’s nuffin’ quite like Spring.
Well, that’s true. Spring brings warmer weather, wind, storms, and all kinds of new stuffs.
That warmer weather stuffs is so right, sissy. You know when mommy and me went to her ‘pointment on Monday, it was really hot out. Fank catness we had air conditionin’ in the car. Did you enjoy your alone time?
Me sure did Raena. Me napped, used the pawdee box without you stalkin’ me, played a little and, well, then me kinda missed you and mommy. Ya’ll were gone longer than me thought you’d be.
Yeah, sissy, it did take us longer than mommy had originally thought. You know, an angel, and we know she was an angel, cuz nopawdy knows her or had heard anythin’ ‘bout what she told mommy; and we haven’t been able to find her again. Mommy had called a dentist office to see ‘bout their prices and this angel told mommy to call her case worker and get them to approve her fur emergency assistance to get her teeth fixed. Mommy had never heard of such, and when she called her case worker, she hadn’t either. But eventually mommy got somepawdy that told her Medicaid would pay fur any emergency extraction deemed medically necessary with prior approval. So Monday we headed out to a dentist to see ifin any of mommy’s teeth qualify.
We was runnin’ late cuz mommy accidentally drifted off a few
hours minutes in her chair. You know, she was s’posed to stay awake all night. Anyways, I’s danced and chortled till mommy agreed to take me, and we rushed off. As soon as we got outta the complex we ended up behind this guy in a pick up truck that was swervin’ all over the road. Even tho’ it’s illegal to use those cell fones while drivin’, ‘pawrently he just couldn’t wait to chat it up with whoever. It was purretty scary, so mommy kinda just backed off and we followed him till we got to a town with a red light so we could safely get ‘round him. It wasn’t till we got to the office that mommy realized she had furgotten to bring the camera, and her x-rays. Anyways, we were the only ones in the office and the staff was really nice. They didn’t really make googly eyes over me tho’. I’s not know what was wrong with them, but at least they were nice to mommy.
Doctor Washington came in and poked ‘round in mommy’s mouth a bit and ordered a panoramic x-ray. We had to go to this room where mommy’s head disappeared into this helmet that went ‘round and ‘round her head. It was purretty cool. It was kinda like the last one she had done, but this time she was sittin’ down. Anyways, after the x-ray, Doctor Washington, said there was 6 teeths that Medicaid would pay fur. The criteria fur them payin’ is that death is immanent ifin said teeth are not removed in a timely manner. Then he told her she’d have to go to Oklahoma City to have them removed cuz no oral surgeons ‘round here take Medicaid. The appointment was made fur next Fursday the 30th. Now mommy has to find a ride. The office requires somepawdy drive mommy to her surgery ‘pointment and wait fur her to get finished.
Yeah, me knows mommy’s been a little stressed over that one, cuz we don’t have anypawdy who can take her. She’s been callin’ ‘round to all kinds of places tryin’ to hire somepawdy fur that day. Our closest furiends live down ‘round the Dallas/Ft Worth area, or Northern Oklahoma. ‘Course, me would make a shout out to ya’ll; ifin you’d be willin’ to help us out and take mommy, we fur sure would get ya’ some green papers fur your troubles.
We sure would sissy. Anyways, after the dentist visit, mommy decided to take her cans and sell ‘em. The trunk’s been full fur a couple of months now. We made a whole $15.00, so mommy treated me to some bacon. Furst, we stopped off at the Wally World to get mommy some bread and look at the treats. Mommy said they didn’t have any treats we would eat, so we left and stopped at the pet store to get a bag of somethin’. We got a new Ulta store last Christmas, well actually Ardmore got it. Anyways, we walked ‘round in there a bit too. Mommy luvs that beauty stuffs. The peeps there sure were
pushy helpful. They kept tryin’ to get mommy to buy somethin’ help mommy out. “Do you want a bag to place your items in? Can I help ya’ find somethin’?” Mommy kept tellin’ ‘em we was just lookin’, but they kept hoverin’ anyways. When mommy furinally got tired of it, we headed to the mickey D’s to get me some bacon; and headed home.
Well, wha’d ya’ think ‘bout the bacon, Raena?
I’s not sure sissy. I’s guess it’s okay, but I’s would rather stick with freeze dried chicky breasts. I’s didn’t know why we didn’t stop at the place that said chicken filets (Chick-fil-A). Anyways, it was a long day, but I’s did enjoy spendin’ time with mommy. But I’s missed you too sissy. I’s was glad to be home.
Me was glad ya’ll were home too. Me got a LumaSoothe treatment and then we had dinner and treats. Dat’s always a great way to end a day. Meowin’ of the LumaSoothe, don’t furget to head on over and enter our give away by clickin’ the Enter Here graphic below.
Fanky fanks fur the reminder sissy. Now let’s link up with Rascal, Rocco and their pawsum co-hosts fur the Pet Parade and let mommy make some more calls to find her a ride. We can sure use the purrayers of our furiends, so that we can get all this worked out. Havin’ Medicaid pay fur these 6 teeths, means that mommy doesn’t need as much money to get the rest of her teethies fixed. We’d like to remind everypawdy ‘bout the fundraiser here, just in case you wanna donate and/or share. And you can always donate directly to our paypal with our email address: email@example.com.

(Dezi and Raena jump in mommy’s lap and meow excitedly to each other)
Well, did you miss us? We’re so glad you’re joinin’ us today. Like me said, we have somethin’ really pawsum to tell you ‘bout. And stay tuned, cuz we’re also havin’ a give away, and there’s a discounted coupon code too, ifin ya’ just can’t wait. As most of you know, sis Lexi had athritis fur years. Mommy gave her a supplement to treat it, cuz that’s really all that’s been available. When sissy got sicker and pickier, mommy tried treats and medicines, again, that’s all that was available. The problem with most of those supplements and treats and medicines, is that they typically upset the tummy. And medications may have nasty side effects. You just want your furry purrer or waggin’ woofy to feel better, but in doing so, you might be causing other issues.
Now, just what is this mommy?
You know sissy, arthritis is just one issue we anipals can have that needs treatin’. Big doggies are prone to Hip Displaysia, Bursitis/Tendonitis, and we can all get sprains and strained muscles, back pain and so many more physical ailments requiring long term treatments or even surgery. And being a larger breed kitty means that most likely, we’ll start having issues at a younger age. That means really long term treatment. That’s when our pawrents, bein’ the good pawrents they are, really start looking at those side effects caused by the current treatments and try to find alternatives or least somethin’ less toxic.
Wha’cha’ gonna do with this mommy?
You’re right Raena. But what about other types of problems. You know we have quite a few furiends that have skin issues. Some caused by allergies and others, still unknown. Some of those that suffer, lose fur, scratch, have flaky skin (Eczema/Psoriasis) and get infections from licking and scratching so much.
Hmmmmmm This is innerestin’.
What about the itchies caused by necessary medications, or the occasional wayward scratch? You know sometimes play can get a little rough and some kitty/doggy gets accidentally injured. Or Kittens furbid, kitty or doggy gets in a real fight. There’s the cone of shame, that thankfully, we’ve never had to wear. And bless our sweet kitty furiend’s heart but we know an adorable kitty that had to wear a t-shirt fur a while. Ifin you had something that could speed up the healing process wouldn’t you want it?
That doesn’t hurt at all mommy.
And ifin there was something that could speed up the fur growth wouldn’t you want that? And somethin’ that could…
Thank you girls. You’ve both made some great points. I want to talk to your friends and their parents for a minute, okay?
(Dezi and Raena nod and purr)
As the girls have pointed out, our beloved furry family members have a lot of the same health issues that we do. And we all know cats are notorious for hiding their pains and ills. None of us want to treat something that doesn’t exist, but most of us are looking to be proactive with our pets health these days. We’re feeding them better, seeing the Vet more often, brushing their teeth and definitely trying alternative treatments when available.
So what if I told you there was a safe, non-invasive way to treat Arthritis, Bursitis & Tendonitis, Deep Surgical Wounds, Deep Muscle Tissue, Hip Dysplasia, Sprains & Strains, Back Pain and more. What if I said the same device could also be used for Chronic Pain Relief, to relieve Eczema & Psoriasis, Clear Infections, Treat Surface Skin Injuries, Post-Surgical Wounds, has Anti-Inflammatory Benefits, Kills Harmful Bacteria, Promotes Healthier Skin, Promotes Hair Growth and more? And lastly, what if I told you this could be used from birth throughout your pets life without any adverse side effects? And, doesn’t require you to be a contortionist (to pill kitty) or end up in the human emergency room with wounds of your own afterwards? Yeah, that last statement was a little dramatic, but you get the idea.
But really, being able to safely treat so many of our beloved furry family members ailments with one tool would be amazing. Just imagine the money you would save over the lifetime of your pet. And imagine how much happier kitty/doggy would be and how little stress for the both of you when it comes to treating these ailments without having a pill shoved down their throat or mixed in their food. We recently came across a tool that I believe should be in every pet household/first aid kit. That tool is called the LumaSoothe. What is it you ask? Well, it’s Light Therapy for your pets. Human medicine has used Light Therapy for years, and it’s finally available for use on our pets.
First, let me tell you what comes in the box when you purchase the LumaSoothe. You’ll receive the LumaSoothe Rechargeable Control Unit, 2 (easily) Interchangeable LED Heads, USB Charger and Cable, Instruction Manual, Built-in Li-ion Battery and a 2 year warranty. The box is nice and sturdy and makes for a great storage place for your LumaSoothe between treatments.
Now let me explain a little about Light Therapy. Low Level Light Therapy treats ailments by exposure to specific wavelengths of light using light emitting diodes (LED). 35 years of clinical research has shown LLLT (Low Level Light Therapy) to deliver powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissue and organisms. Light Therapy triggers cellular stimulation. The LumaSoothe Control Unit has 2 buttons; one to power on the unit and the other to start the treatment process which lasts 15 minutes. There’s a light to let you know the unit is on and one to tell you when the unit is charged.
Let me tell you about the technical information LumaSoothe offers for those of you who are interested. LumaSoothe incorporates 2 easily interchangeable heads, the (IR) (DT) Deep Treatment Head and the (ST) Surface Treatment Head. They are easy to switch out and lock into place. Each treatment head has 40 powerful LED’s with a total of 5 wavelenghts between the 2 heads ranging from 465 to 940 nanometers (nm) along with Luma-Tech’s Pulsed Wave Technology. NASA medical studies have concluded a faster and more efficient cellular response when using Pulsed-light as opposed to a steady beam. The result is an increase in the cellular metabolism rate which expedites cell repair and the stimulation of the immune system, lymphatic and vascular systems to produce: Faster Wound Healing, Pain Relief, Increased Metabolic Activity, Anti-Inflammatory Benefits, Accelerated Cellular Growth, Improved Vascular Activity, Improved Nerve Function, Promotes Healthier Skin, Kills Harmful Bacteria, and more.
That feels really good mommy. Can ya’ move it a little
to the left? MOL
The (DT) Deep Treament Head uses 940nm LED’s. The Infrared light (800nm – 1000nm) penetrates to a depth of about 30 – 40nm’s making it most effective for treating bones, joints and deep muscles. The (ST) Surface Treatment Head has visible light that penetrates tissue to a depth of about 8 – 10nm at wavelengths from 400 to 700nm and is effective in treating surface wounds, cuts, scars, trigger and acupuncture points, kills bad bacteria, treats a variety of skin conditions, promotes healthy skin and hair, relieves pain and is effective in treating infections. The (ST) Head includes these LED’s: 4 yellow at 490nm, 8 blue at 470nm. 12 green at 520 nm and 16 red at 650nm to provide the widest spectrum for shallow skin treatments. The bottom line, is that between the 2 heads, you can treat a multitude of problems and health issues our pets face, safely and in a manner that is enjoyable for you and your kitty/doggy. (Remember to never point the device directly at your pets eyes!)
The LumaSoothe is programmed to shut off after 15 minutes. During the treatment the head warms a bit, but doesn’t get hot and isn’t uncomfortable for your pet. Measuring enjoyment in purrs, I would say that Dezi and Raena love treatment time. Dezi has been having a few issues with early onset of arthritis due to her size and activity levels. Since we started using the LumaSoothe, I’ve noticed that she’s been jumping more and has become more active than previous months. While Raena is still a kitten, and doesn’t really need treatments, she enjoys them, and we’re being proactive. And it’s safe to use on her. And you know, there may very well be a little pain in growing bones, muscles and joints. After her spay, the fur was really slow to grow back. We began using the LumaSoothe ST head on the area, and her fur’s back and floofy beautiful again.
Oh mommy, this feels so good. Can we do this everyday?
If you haven’t figured it out by now, we love the LumaSoothe Light Therapy Treatment device and we think ya’ll will too. I love that it’s safe to use on both girls and doesn’t cause any side effects. I love that the girls enjoy it too; 15 minutes of non stop purring in my lap is really therapeutic for me as well. The LumaSoothe can be purchased directly from Luma-Tech for $149.95 with free shipping or amazon.com.

(Mommy clears away the breakfast dishes and Dezi heads up the Liberty tree with Raena in pursuit. Dezi reaches the top first and turns and hisses at Raena who reaches out and swipes Dezi’s back leg.)
Quit tryin’ to trip me Raena!!!
Are you stickin’ your tongue out at me?
Well then quit hissin’ at me sissy.
Me didn’t hiss at ya’ till ya’ tried to trip me.
Well, what ‘bout earlier?
You jumped on top of me Raena. Wha’d ya’ expect me to do?.
I’s just wanted to play sissy.
You always wanna play Raena. Ya’ know sometimes it’s nice to just lay back and take a nap. Or fur instance, after a meal, some of us like to wash up.
I’s like a good nap as much as any kitty sissy, and cleanin’ up is a must. ‘Specially ifin I’s wanna ketch the attentions of a certain sweet boy cat. But mine’s neck furs always get caught in mine’s mouth. They seem to always be in mine’s way. Do you have that purroblem sissy?
Me did when me was a little baby kitty girl Raena, but not so much anymore. Your neck ruff is longer than me’s is. But me’s bloomers are longer than yours. And me’s whiskers are longer than yours too.
You don’t know that fur sure, sissy. Mommy says mine’s whiskers are purrlenty long. I’s just keep getting’ into things and breakin’ off the ends.
Yep, mommy hates it when ya’ do that. She says our whiskers are very m’purrtant, and we should take care of them.
I’s saw her pickin’ one up off the carpet the other day. Does she plan on tryin’ to glue it back on me or somethin’?
No silly. Mommy just luvs us so much she likes to keep those whiskers we shed. She’s got a jar full of ‘em fur each kitty she’s ever luvved. Me knows it sounds really strange, but she is only human after all. And those humans do some really weird stuffs sometimes.
No kitten sissy. Those whiskers ain’t gonna do her any good. Mommy’s wider than even your whiskers. (Raena snickers under her breath)
(Dezi lets out a little giggle and then gets serious)
(Dezi tries to hold back the grin and laugh growing inside her)
You should be ashamed of yourself. That’s not nice.
What? I’s was just meowin’ the truth. Mommy says we should always tell the truth, no matter what.
We should Raena. But sometimes, you just shouldn’t meow anythin’, ‘specially ifin the truth isn’t nice or would hurt somepawdy’s feelings.
Nope sissy, that’s not what mommy says. I’s purretty sure she says to always tell the truth, even ifin it hurts.
Raena, you’re still young and haven’t learned everythin’ just yet. There’s this thing called tact. It’s the way you meow those not so nice truths so that you don’t hurt anypawdy’s feelings.
Oh yeah? Well then just how would you meow that mommy’s wide.
Uh, well, uhm, (Dezi meowmbles under her breath) You just don’t meow it Raena. That’s how ya’ meow it, you just don’t.
Well that’s no fun. Hey, did you hear mommy talkin’ ‘bout her big ‘pointment tomorrow?
Yep, me sure did. It’s gonna be a long night. Her ‘pointment’s early in the meownin’, so she’ll have to stay up all night to be able to go. Me’s kinda hopin’ she takes you. Me would have the whole house all to me’s self. Me could nap and bathe and do all kinds of things in peace and quiet. Least fur a little while.
I’s hope she takes me too. I’s can show off mine’s purretty new harness and leash. And what do you mean, peace and quiet? We won’t be gone fur very long. But I’s not loud. The neighbors are loud. But not me.
You sure could, Raena. And yes, the neighbors are loud, but you can be too. Anyways, that’s the plan. When mommy’s gettin’ ready to go, you need to dance ‘round and drag out your harness, so mommy’ll know you wanna go really bad. ‘Course that also means that mommy’s gonna be really tired. So me told her we could skip our regular Service Cat Monday posty this week. But just this once.
But we’ll be back on Wednesday, right sissy?
Absolutely Raena. And we’ll have somethin’ on Wednesday that nopawdy’s gonna wanna miss.
We’re havin’ a give away too, aren‘t we sissy? This will be mine’s furst give away ever. I’s so excited I’s can’t hardly wait.
That’s right, Raena. We’ve kinda been teasin’ everypawdy with an occasional foto. And furinally, the day has come to meow all ‘bout it. You know, we are so blest. Bein’ Influencers allow us oppurrtunities we might not otherwise get. We really do like tryin’ out new things to tell our furiends ‘bout. But the greatest blessing we have are our furiends.
I’s agree sissy. I’s luvs our furiends so much. Did you see that we got another donation fur mommy’s dental fundraiser? We so wanna say fanky fank ya’ to our furiends over at Hairballs and Hissyfits. Ifin ya’ haven’t met Amarula, Frodo and Zulu, you should go by and check ‘em out. And ifin you would like to help mommy get her much needed dental work done, you can donate directly through paypal without any fees. Just use our email, firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can also donate through the fundraiser by clickin’ here. We really purreciate all those who have helped so far. We’re ‘bout half way to our goal and mommy’s mouth feelin’ all better. Hopefully, she’ll be smilin’ again real soon. She’s a little embarrassed to smile right now, and the air makes her teeth hurt worse; so she tries to keep her mouth shut most of the time.
Those things are all true Raena. But we are blest to have a mommy that still puts us furst, no matter how she feels. And we’ve been blest with some nice Spring weather this comin’ week. That means lots of strolls fur us. We can hear the birds singin’ and the wind blowin’ the furesh new leaves that are growin’ on the trees outside. Mommy says we’re in fur at least one more cold snap befur Spring furinally arrives to stay. You know, each day is a gift, a blessing to celebrate just bein’ alive. We are so fankful to have so much luv in our lives. ‘Member to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. No matter how bad things might seem, there is always a blessing just waitin’ to be found.
And don’t furget the Sunday Selfies with the Kitties Blue sissy. Maybe a couple of those Wednesday teaser fotos would be good. We hope you’ll all stop by to find out what it is.
Till the next time………………………………………….Be Blest!!!
