Goats and Cutlets #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s sure wanna fanky fank everypawdy fur your well wishes and patience. This teethy sitch sure got mommy’s goat. I’s didn’t even know we had a goat, but mommy said it was got and she was shot. Not shot, like with a gun or anythin’, but just like, down fur the count.

 

 Dezi and Raena lay together on the floor

 

 

          Raena, we don’t have a goat. That’s just another one of those human sayings like the shot thingy.

 

 Raena lays on floor

 

Well Kittens!!! Humans sure do have a lot of funny sayings sissy. I’s don’t know why they can’t just say what they mean. I’s was really lookin’ furward to meetin’ our goat.

          Me wishes humans didn’t have so many colorful words too Raena, but me fur sure ain’t sharin’ anythin’ else with anypawdy else!!! Fur sure, me ain’t sharin’ with no goat!!! Me hears they eat everythin’. And we got new treats to try. It’s bad enuff me has to share everythin’ with you, me’s not sharin’ with mommy’s goat, and that’s that. 

 

 Beyond Chicken Cutlets

 

Are you meowin’ ‘bout those white meat chicken Cutlets from Purina Beyond we got from Chewy, sissy?

 

 

 

This is a sponsored post. We received the Beyond Cutlets in exchange for our fair and honest review. As always, we only bring products we use or have tried. We always tell it like we see it and neither Chewy or Purina is responsible for the content of this post unless otherwise stated.

 

 Beyond chicken cutlet

 

          Me is Raena. As most of our furiends know, we eat freeze dried raw noms, and our favorite treats are also of the freeze dried variety. Well, anypawdy who knows anythin’ ‘bout freeze dried foods and treats knows, they’re quite ‘spensive. Fur some reason, the cost to dry out a chicken can be quite outrageous. Anyways, cuz mommy wants to give us the very bestest she can with the limited funds she has, she offen checks the doggy aisle when buyin’ us treats. Ya’ heard me right, the doggy aisle. See, when it comes to propurr freeze dried treats, meanin’ single ingredient, they’re the same whether they’re in a teeny package fur kitties or a huge bag fur woofies. The only difference is size and purrice. So, even tho’ the Purina Beyond all natural grain-free white meat chicken Cutlets have a doggy on the bag and be listed in the doggy treat section, they’re purrfectly safe and edible fur all us felines. Y, the only ingredients are Chicken, glycerin and salt.

 

 Raena sniffs Beyond chicken cutlett

 

That’s right sissy. And they come in a 2.7 oz bag like we got or 9 oz. bag fur $3.57 or $9.99. Larger and cheaper than ifin they had been packaged fur kitties. Anyways, let’s see what Chewy has to say ‘bout these treats.

 

Key Benefits

  • A snack that’s simply made and genuinely good

  • Purina’s treat specialists use all-natural white meat chicken in every batch

  • Natural, grain-free dog (and kitty<we added this part>) snack that offers both great taste and quality ingredients you can trust

  • Chicken is the #1 ingredient

  • No poultry by-product meal

Now, as ya’ know, us kitties do have smaller mouths than our woofie counterparts, so there’s fur sure gonna be some breakin’ needed befur we kitties can begin eatin’ said treats, but mommy says that’s not a purroblem. The white meat chicken Cutlets were easy enuff to break apart. That is, after we each had a go at the whole cutlet. Ya’ know, they smelled so delishus, we couldn’t help ourselves. I’s quite enjoyed a few tasty bites of mine’s cutlet. But fur some reason, I’s won’t take another bite. How ‘bout you sissy? 

 

 Dezi takes a bite of the beyond chicken cutlett

 

          Fanks Raena. Me kind’a liked the idea of the whole cutlet to0, but it was a bit chewier than me likes. The normal freeze dried chicken me likes kind’a melts in your mouth. Ya’ know, it’s dry and then when me’s spit mingles with it, and it turns into a real piece of meat. This was chewy and kind’a oily.  

 

 Raena eats treats from hand

 

Yeah, mommy said they felt a bit greasy, and thinks I’s might have got a taste of said grease and now I’s want nuffin’ to do with ‘em either. They’re also not the typical freeze dried chicken breast we normally purrfur. These are more like a large strip of jerky. But, sissy and me had a nice long meow and decided that fur ingredients, cost and size, the Purina Beyond Cutlets deserve a paw up from both of us. Mommy agreed and lends her thumb up.

          And of course, we always give Chewy an all paws up. They have purroducts fur all the furry, feathered, scaled and finned furiends in your home. And speedy furee shippin’ fur all orders of $49.00 and over and speedy flat rate shippin’ fur all other orders. And there’s a toy of every box. You know how us kitties luv a good box. We hear lots of the woofies do too. Chewy also offurs an auto ship program so you never have to worry ‘bout runnin’ outta your pets faves. But don’t worry, you can skip, cancel or delay anytime. And, of course we think Chewy’s customer service peeps are the cat’s meow.

Meowin’ of auto ships sissy, I’s think we have one on the way.?

 

          Me thinks you’re right, Raena. Let’s go see ifin Fedex is here yet. 

 

I’s right behind ya’ sissy. I’s just gonna check fur that goat. Ya’ never know with mommy.?

Blest Sunday: We’re Still Here & Still Blest

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle.

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

          Raena, what are you meowin’ ‘bout now? 

 

 Dezi and Raena hang out together during the fireworks

 

I’s was just seein’ ifin anypawdy ‘membered us. Here we had the pawrty of the century planned, and then we went and fell off the face of the earth.

 

 Dezi lays atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

          Purrrrrrrlease Raena. We didn’t fall off the face of the earth. And, our furiends knew mommy was headin’ to the dentist and without her, we can’t work the catputer. 

 

 

 

Yeah sissy, what’s up with that anyways? Who knew ya’ needed a password just turn it on? And, why wouldn’t mommy use at least one of our names as said password? It’s like she wants to make sure we can’t have any fun without her. 

 

          Now Raena, you know we have lots of toys and fun without the catputer. Y, We’ve even had a little fun the last few days tryin’ to make out what mommy’s sayin’? 

 

 Raena lays on floor looking at toys

Okay, maybe we do have lots of fun toys.

 

 

Now that’s the truth sissy. She fur sure hasn’t sounded like our mommy.

 

          She’ll get better tho’, Raena. But we should let everypawdy know how things went. and we’ve got a few peeps to fank too.

 

 Raena looks at mommy from stroller

You’ll just have to enjoy seein’ this foto of me. Mommy didn’t

take da camera to her ‘pointment. But this is a great selfie, don’ch’a think?

 

 

Well, let me meow ‘bout the ‘pointment sissy. Mommy was a little nervous all meownin’ long, but she kept sayin’ that once it was all over, she’d feel much better. Hmmmpht  Anyways, when we got there, they called us right back. The assistant was the same girly that had taken mommy’s impurrsions, so at least she was furmiliar. The dentist on the other hand…yep, mommy had another new dentist, Dr. Ryan. He was an older man, 3rd generation dentist, and gentle as a teddy bear. He was really nice, even tho’ he did make mommy cry a few times. He kept stickin’ mommy with a needle and then he grabbed some funky lookin’ pliers and started pullin’ out her teethies. One at a time till they were gone. I’s could tell mommy was hurtin’ cuz her whole body was shakin’ and puddles of water were fallin’ from her eyes. But, mommy never said a word and Dr. Ryan said mommy was the bestest patient he’d had in years. Then, he got a needle and thread and sewed mommy’s mouth together.

 

          He didn’t sew her mouth together Raena. He just sewed all the holes he just made shut.

 

 Raena lays in mommy's lap

 

Whatever sissy. Anyways, the assistant girly then put these fake teethies in mommy’s mouth and told her stuffs ‘bout comin’ in fur soft alignments and one final hard alignment in 6 months. Like we had a clue what she was talkin’ ‘bout. And then, when we were leavin’, Dr. Ryan gave mommy a big ole teddy bear hug and said he’d be purrayin’ fur her. And yes, mommy started cryin’ all over again. We stopped at the Wally world to get mommy’s antibiotics and some Malt O Meal and headed home. Seems mommy had 4 more teethies in her sinuses and 3 of the lower ones were embedded in a nerve. So, mommy has a sinus headache on top of her regular migraine, and besides her face and neck bein’ all swollen, part of her face is a little numb still. Dr. Ryan, said it’d take a week or two fur her face and neck to shrink back to normal size and the feelin’ should return in a few days to a week. Seems nopawdy told mommy just how much pain and discomfurt she would have durin’ this healin’ purrocess. 

 

 Dezi gets loving while laying on the arm of chair-selfie

Me’s takin’ great care of mommy.

 

 

          Yeah, and since her migraines mess with her vision, we haven’t been on the catputer very much. And, the pain and feelin’ of the fake teethies have made it a little difficult fur mommy to eat even the Malt O Meal, so we’ve all been nappin’ a lot. But, most ‘purrtantly, mommy says, this is all tempurrary and shall pass. And, when it does, she’s gonna feel sooooooo much better. So, we wanna say a meowsy big fank you to all those who helped to make this pawssible. Fank you awnty Kathleen, awnty Carol, awnty Theresa, awnty Kat, awnty Suzanne and LouLou, the sweetest Tuxie Princess Erin and her peep, awnty Kerry and Valentine, awnty Vonda, awnty Anonymous, awnty Claire, Zorro and Pixie (The Swiss Cats), awnty Petal, awnty Debbie, Katie and Waffles (Glogirly), Our sweet furiends Amarula, Frodo and Zulu from Hairballs and Hissyfits, awnty Jullea, awnty Gretel, awnty Cindy, awnty Julie and all our Anonymous Angels. We wanna say fanks to uncle Pete, Timmy and the gang fur helpin’ to calm mommy’s nerves. Ya’ brought her back from the edge Fursday so she could make her ‘pointment. And, we wanna fank you all fur the purrayers and well wishes. Keep those purrayers comin’ ifin ya’ don’t mind.

  

 Raena lays on nip mat on Liberty cat tree

 

Oh sissy, we are so very blest. Not only do we have the mostest wonderful mommy in the universe, we have the greatest furiends in any universe. Even mommy, who can’t talk so good right now, agrees, that we are most assuredly blest. And she wanted to ‘pawlogize to us and everypawdy fur our absence. Unfurtunately, she needs a couple more days to get sorted out, so our big pawrty is still on, just postponed a bit.

 

 Dezi lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

          Yep Raena, that’s the mommy we know and luv. We will always find the blessing, the rose bud among the thorns. And, we wanna remind all of you to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your life. 

 

We’re also gonna join up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. C’mon sissy, let’s go give mommy a massage and have a little nap.

Chatting Cats: What Fun Are Rules

Hey Raena, wha’cha’ doin’? 

 

 Dezi sits in wheelchair while Raena sits atop the stroller beside the printer

 

          I’s checkin’ out this funny machine. Didn’t you hear it start up all by itself? It’s been doin’ that a lot lately. It starts makin’ these funny noises and then it suddenly spits out paper at ya’. Why do ya’ reckon it does that sissy? 

 

Me’s not sure Raena, but it always does it after mommy says “The printer’s fixin’ to kick on girls.”  Me thinks she means that strange machine, cuz after it spits out paper, she usually goes in there and gets it. 

 

 Dezi sits in wheelchar while Raena checks out printer from atop the stroller

 

          I’s wonder what that paper says, sissy? You know, mommy gets all beside herself when I’s try to stop it. Y, The other day, that silly machine popped open and scared me. It caught mine’s tail and wouldn’t let go.

 

Dezi bathes paw while laying on Yeowww nip toy

As me recalls Raena, mommy had been tellin’ you to get down and leave it alone. Me may not unnerstand why mommy has the rules she does, but they usually purrtect us in some way. Ifin you had left it alone like mommy said to, me bets your tail wouldn’t have gotten caught. 

 

          But sissy, what fun would that be? Mommy has soooooo many rules. “Don’t get up there. Don’t touch that. Leave it alone, it’s mine.” Kittens!!!  It’s like she doesn’t want us to have any fun…Ever!!! 

 

 Dezi and Raena look outside from their perches near the door.

 

Purrleeeeeease Raena (Dezi meows with sarcasm). We’ve got lots of toys to play with. Truth is, we don’t have that many rules. Mommy says the Don’ts are there to purrtect us and keep us safe. (Suddenly, there’s a loud noise outside and Dezi looks out the door from atop the cat tree while Raena looks out the door from her small perch. Dezi meows loudly as she takes off running towards the bedroom) Run fur your life…the lawn crew’s here!!! 

 

 Raena eats breakfast

Fur some reason, da food always tastes better outta sissy’s plate.

 

 

          (Raena jumps down from her perch and looks around for a minute. As she saunters over to Dezi’s breakfast plate she meows) What’s all the x’citement fur sissy, they’re here every week? You’d think you’d be used to it by now. Oh well, more noms fur me. MOL  (Raena meows loudly towards the bedroom) Hey sissy, why don’t we ask mommy fur some treats. We still have a bag left. 

 

(Dezi lays at the bedroom door and meows) Yeah, sure Raena. Treats sound great. You go ahead and ask, and me will be waitin’.

 

 Raena scratches on the butterfly cat scratcher

 

          Why am I’s the only one that ever has to ask fur treats sissy?

 

Why would me go to all that trouble of givin’ mommy “the look” and dancin’ ‘round, when me can just hang out and wait. Ifin me waits long enuff, you’ll do all the work fur me. MOL 

 

          Sissy?!?! 

 

 Dezi hunches on the floor watching over mommy

 

Uh, Oh, Uh, Did me say that out loud? Uh, me just means you do a much better job at askin’ fur treats…Yeah, that’s it. You know, who could say no to your bootyful face? 

 

          Aaaaaaaaaaaaaw Fanky fank you sissy. That’s so sweet of you. 

 

Whew (Dezi wipes her paw across her brow and meows) She bought it. That was a close one. Guess me better go with her this time. She might be askin’ fur and gettin’ treats that me’s not gettin’ sometimes. Hey Raena, are you goin’ with mommy tomorrow? 

 

 Dezi and Raena eat treats while on the liberty cat tree

 

         Well, I’s sure hope so. Least that’s the plan fur now. I’s hope all our furiends will keep mommy and us in their purrayers tomorrow. Mommy’s believin’ the ‘pointment’s gonna go well, and that everythin’ is gonna be okay. It’s been a long time comin’, but we can furinally see an end to it all.

 

 Dezi and Raena bathe atop the Liberty cat tree

 

Me knows mommy’s gonna feel a lot better when it’s all over. Maybe not at furst, cuz there’s gonna be more of that no nose blowin’ and Malt O Meal cereal fur a while. But that won’t last furever, and then she won’t have to worry ‘bout any more teethie infections. And, we’ll be havin’ that play date pawrty all weekend. Let’s go make sure all the toys you haven’t broken have good batteries. 

 

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

 

Dezi: Vibrant Blue 

Raena: Navy Blue

Service Cats: DNA Doesn’t Change

Welcome to a brand new Service Cat Monday. We were really surpurrised by the variations in comments we got last week ‘bout “Designer Cats”. And, we think some of you were surpurrised by our view on the subject. Either way, we really ‘purreciate the discussion. As we said last week, Service Cat Monday has really taken on a life of it’s own and not only covers Service cat stories, but also general Trainin’ Tips/Tricks/Techniques as well as health, behavioral, and well, all things cat. That really excites us. As with all our Service cat posts, the followin’ will be written in human English fur reader and translator ease. Ifin you have any questions, purrlease leave them in the comments or send us an email. All Trainin’ Tips, Tricks and Techniques have been used/developed by mommy throughout her many years of animal trainin’, cats in purrticular. And, not intended to be a step by step Trainin’ manual. Ifin you’ve missed any post in this series, you can ketch up by clickin’ the links below.

 

 Dezi laying in cat tree in new harness

 

 

First up this week, we want to speak just a little more about those “Designer Cats”. Our sweet friend Pipo thought he was one of ‘em. Truth is Pipo, Siamese, at least the traditional robust apple headed Siamese Cats, are a naturally evolving breed. Now, the Siamese in show rings today are a whole other story. Although technically not “Designer cats, they have been selectively bred to create a kitty that looks far different than their origins. But, the Traditional Siamese isn’t going anywhere. The DNA for the Traditional Siamese traits are in the genes of all Siamese cats today. As for us Ragdolls, again, we were a naturally occurring mutation from the pairings of a non pedigreed white alley cat and her cohorts. Seems Josephine, the mother of the Ragdoll breed, ain’t meowing (telling). Altho’ Josephine wandered the alleys, she actually had an owner. The owner shared an alley with a breeder that thought some of Josephine’s kittens were pretty remarkable and purchased several of those non pedigreed kittens and set out to create a breed she called, the Ragdoll. Unfortunately, disreputable breeders continue to cross breed, and call them “Designer Cats”. Cross breeding is no longer necessary, desired or allowed by the cat registering organizations.

Raena, the result of a Ragdoll to Ragdoll pairing, is a prime example of poor breeding practices and the resurgence of some of those “undesirable” DNA traits. Me is stocky and boxy, with a heavy set of bones, per breed standard. Raena is long, tall and delicate. The Persian cat traits in her DNA have surfaced and resulted in a more smooshed face with those nasty tear duct issues and a longer than normal neck ruff. Her body type is most likely due to the Oriental cat DNA in the breed. This is why even reputable breeders of all breeds have what they call “Pet” quality and “Show” quality. You can’t change DNA, and at some point, kittens will be born with traits resembling some of those in past cross pairings which do not meet the so called Breed Standards. Now, please understand, we LOVE Raena and wouldn’t change her for the world. But, we do wish people didn’t try to play God.

 

 Raena looks out from stroller

This profile foto shows Raena’s more smooshed face.

 

 

Now, We covered a lot about “Aggression” recently in our Calming the Tiger in Your Cat posts (links at bottom). But, our friend Valentine asked, why/how can littermates not get along?. There were no specific issues listed. Naturally, we just assume littermates will be the best of friends for life, right?. Obviously, that would be ideal. But, the reality is that all kitties experience life differently. Two kittens born to the same mother and raised in the same house, will have different personalities and experiences. Even mommy, who is home with us 99% of the time, doesn’t see everything. The possibility exists that something traumatic happened between the cats, or their world that has caused a rift in their relationship. The runt of a litter will often get picked on and/or ignored by his/her littermates and even the mother.

 

 Raena tried to catch Dezi

Get back here sissy. I’s gonna be da Alpha Cat.

 

Two dominant cats may have trouble getting along. Outside intruders, or changes in their household can also cause kitties to not get along. The good news is, that no matter what has caused the rift, it can be changed. With a little love, patience, investigation and training, littermates and housemates can become the best of friends. It may take re-introducing the cats and starting fresh, but you can have a happy and peaceful home. The Tips and Techniques we laid out in the Calming the Tiger in Your Cat posts (links below), will help you reach that goal. Val, we wish your friend the best of luck and are happy that despite the issues, they have kept the kitties instead of turning them in to a shelter.

 

 Dezi and Raena tumble and roll

Oh yeah? We’ll see who da Alpha is!!!

 

We’re gonna wrap this up fur now. We’ve got a lot to do befur mommy’s dentist ‘pointment on Fursday. We hope to tackle a new question next week regarding Operant and Clicker Training. Be sure to join us fur that. And ‘member, ifin ya’ have any questions, let us know. Purrlease be as specific as pawssible when askin’ ‘bout behavioral issues. The better we unnerstand the purroblem, the better we can help with the correct answers and tips. And, as always, you can ketch up on any Service Cats posty you missed by clickin’ the links below.

Blest Sunday: Party Planning & Play Date Chit Chat

MeOW  Another week has passed and it’s time fur a purrfectly Blest Sunday. We are so behind in our visitin’ that it ain’t even funny. ‘Tween doctors’ pointments, lease re-certification stuffs and gettin’ ready fur mommy’s dental ‘pointment, there’s been little time fur the catputer. Mommy has purromissed us that all this extra stuffs is almost over and we’ll be back to normal real soon. 

 

 Dezi and Raena lay together on the floor

 

          I’s’ll sure be glad to get mommy back sissy. Even our play time has been shortened cuz of all the extra stuffs goin’ on right now. You know, we haven’t even gone strollin’ lately?. 

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

Well Raena, it’s been a little hot to go strollin’ just cuz. It’s furinally summer, and swelterin’ hot outside. We’re really blest to be inside unner the air conditioner.

 

 Raena sits pretty at the edge of the kitchen

Come on mommy, just a little stroll?

 

 

          You’re right ‘bout that sissy. Even with the air conditioner runnin’ and a couple of fans, mommy’s been complainin’ ‘bout the heat and somethin’ she calls her own purrsonal summers. What are those anyways?

 

Don’t ask me, Raena. What would me know ‘bout purrsonal summers. Mommy’s been complainin’ ‘bout those fur years. Even in the middle of the winter, mommy talks ‘bout those purrsonal summers. It’s purrobably just another human expression fur nonsense. You know humans and their sayings; they’ve got one fur just ‘bout everythin’.

 

 Sunshine with shades animated emoji

 

          They sure do, don’t they sissy?. Y, Just the other day you and me were meowin’ and playin’ in the back and mommy hollered somethin’ ‘bout us caterwaulin’. And then, you used your low meow that mommy doesn’t hear very offen and she came runnin’ to see what was goin’ on. 

 

 Dezi sits on the bathroom counter

 

Fur a second Raena, me thought she had done gone and brought home another kitty. There me was, sittin’ on the bathroom vanity when all of a sudden me caught sight of somethin’ outta the corner of me’s eye. Another kitty sittin’ there on the vanity right beside me. You were layin’ on the shower chair so me knew it wasn’t you. Me tried to ignore it, but it started to mimic everythin’ me did. Me got really close so me could give it a smell. It touched me’s nose, but there was nuffin’. No smell at all. So, me had to find out from mommy just what was goin’ on. One pain in me’s hiney sisfur is purrlenty. Me never agreed to 2!!!

 

          Pain in your hiney?! I’s thought you luvved me sissy. You said you did. 

 

Dezi lays on bathroom vanity

Me does Raena. But you can still be a pain sometimes. Fankfully, mommy said that extra kitty on the vanity was just all me’s beauty reflectin’ off of me. MeOW  That was a close one. Me sure is blest to have a mommy that keeps her word. 

 

 

 Raena lays on the shower chair

 

          I’s don’t know sissy. another kitty to play with might not be such a bad thing. Altho’ I’s do agree, we are very blest kitties to have such a luvvin’ mommy.

 

 Dezi and Raena play with the Tower of Tracks

 

Me plays with you Raena. Just cuz you don’t ever get tired, isn’t reason enuff to have to share everythin’ with yet another kitty. Besides, we’re blest with lots of furiends. We should schedule another play date sometime. Me has a feelin’ mommy’s not gonna be up to much this week since she has her dental ‘pointment to remove the remainin’ bad teethies and get those dentures she’s been talkin’ ‘bout. So, why don’t we have a few furiends over fur a play date pawrty. 

 

          Really sissy? I’s would luvs that. Are you gonna chaperone? You know mommy won’t be able too, and there’s no way she’ll let us have company ifin you’re not in charge.

 

 Dezi and Raena on the Liberty Cat Tree

 

Yes Raena, me will chaperone. We fur sure oughtta invite our sweet tuxie furiend, Erin the cat princess. We may not have any real mouseys ‘round here fur her but we can get purrlenty of cream. And yes, we can invite Simon, Timmy and his furmily, and… 

 

          Hey sissy!!! Valentine just got a new stroller. I’s bet he’d be up fur a play date party too. Maybe he could even stroll on over. We don’t know when Marv is scheduled to arrive at awnty Barb’s place, but maybe angel Nellie could fly in. Kittens  There’s just too many furiends to name all of ‘em. You’re are so right sissy. We are so blest to have so many pawsum furiends. A meowsy big fanky fanks to all of you.

 

 Top 30 Independant Cat Bloggers badge

 

Yep Raena, we are blest. Everywhere we look is a blessing. We were contacted by Dan and his amazin’ kitty Whiskey. They were puttin’ together a list of the top independent cat bloggers and wanted to include us. You can check out their list here. We feel blest to be included. There’s some really great blogs listed. We’d like to remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the many blessings in your lives. 

 

 Raena scowls at the camera while laying on the floor

This is mine’s collar bell selfie fur the week.

 

 

          Don’t furget Sunday Selfies with the Kitties Blue, sissy. We may not take actual selfies, but mommy does luv those close-ups. We better start cleanin’ up and maybe get mommy to plant up some cat grass fur our play date pawrty. I’s invitin’ all of you. It’s gonna be a celebration of furiends in honor of mommy gettin’ rid of all those painful teethies and all the blessings the good Lord gave us.
