Chatting Cats: A Winning Dress & Pawtastic Box #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Do ya’ll ‘member this foto from last month?

 

Raena on cat tree in red dress

Yep, I’s was stylin’ in mine’s old new dress and tryin’ to win the Chewy fashion show. Mommy had gotten the dress when I’s was a little girly. It didn’t fit me back then, but mommy said it reminded her of somethin’ called a hoe down complete with square dancers. I’s haven’t been to any hoe downs or square dances, but I’s do like mine’s dress.

 

          Raena, what are you meowmblin’ on ‘bout?

 

 Raena looks at camera while wearing her red dress,

 

 

I’s was meowin’ ‘bout mine’s dress I’s wore fur the Chewy fashion show last month. You ‘member, you wanted me to win so we could get a great surpurrise box from Chewy?.

Well sissy, I’s won. And OMC what a pawtastic box full of goodies we got. Y, They even sent mommy a little sumpin, sumpin. You know how much mommy enjoys her coffee and even hot chocolate in the winter time. Well, now she has this great kitty mug to drink them with. Mommy said to tell everypawdy, ifin they were lookin’ fur a nice sized mug fur themselves or to give as a gift, look no further, this mug is huge and adorable. I’s gotta agree, it really is cute. Anyways, we got some amazin’ goodies all fur us. We got some of our favorite freeze dried treats, and some of those Kittles I’s like.

          Me saw some of those tasty bonito flakes too. But, me’s favorites in the box were the Yeowww nip toys. We shared with Gizmo and his fursibs durin’ their recent visit, and now we got 2 new Yeowww toys fur ourselves. Ya’ can’t beat a blessin’ like that fur sure.

That’s the truth sissy. And, we got a new wand toy too. I’s can’t wait to play with mommy. Ya’ know, we think any kitty would be happy with any of the items we got. With Christmas not too far away, our peeps might be lookin’ fur some great Christmas gifts to spoil us with. you can get everythin’ from our winnin’ box right there at Chewy.com

          Sure ‘nuff Raena. Me bets all the kitties in the shelters would luv any of the goodies we got too. As a matter of fact, they might even come outta their shells a bit and get adopted quicker. We don’t normally post on Fursdays any more, but we fur sure were thinkin’ ‘bout #RememberMe yesfurday. So many anipals will die in shelters without ever knowin’ the luv and wonderment of a furever home. This makes us so sad. But fur the Grace of God… 

 

 Dezi and Raena atop the liberty cat tree with Yeowww toy

 

 

Oh sissy, mine’s heart just breaks thinkin’ ‘bout all those sweet anipals who never get the chance to be luvved and adored like we do. Purrlease, do everythin’ ya’ can to help those anipals find luvvin’ furever homes. Ifin ya’ can’t adopt yourself, share, share and share again. You never know who might see your posty and be lookin’ fur a furry luv of their own. We really wanna say fank you to Chewy fur our pawsum box. And fank you to everypawdy who has saved a life and shares to save more lives. Looks like this rain ain’t never gonna let up; but, we have new toys to play with. Let’s go play befur the physical therapist gets here to evaluate mommy fur her new wheelchair.

Perfect Form For Tummy Upsets #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s beginnin’ to think all the sky knows how to do is cry. There’s sure ‘nuff a lot of sads in the world right now, but I’s got paws, not fins. It’s hard ‘nuff to get mommy to let me walk on dry ground, you think she’s ‘bout to let me go prancin’ thru the mud? Not likely. So sky, I’s have a message fur ya’. Rain, rain, go away, and don’t come back again another day. Isn’t that clever? Sissy taught it to me last night while we were huntin’ fur intruders UTB (under the bed).

 

 Dezi sits in chewy box

 

 

          What are you meowin’ ‘bout Raena? Me’s not scared of the rain. 

 

‘Course not sissy. I’s was meowin’ that we were lookin’ fur intruders, not hidin’ out. 

 

          So long as you’re not fibbin’ on me. Don’t you have a review to do today? 

 

 Chewy Logo

 

 

I’s do sissy. We luvs our Chewy, even ifin we don’t always like the things mommy gets fur us. As most peeps know, we both got sick with upset tummies a few weeks ago. Mommy was really worried ‘bout us. You were a little sicker than me, to the point that you were walkin’ funny. Mommy knew you were hurtin’, cuz you walked ‘round almost doubled over. Mommy cried and purrayed so hard fur us to get better. And, she even thought ‘bout takin’ us to the V E T.

Neither Chewy or the Honest Kitchen are responsible for the opinions in this post unless otherwise stated. We only review products we use or have tried and feel would be of interest to you, our readers and friends. 

 

 Raena sniffs honest Kitchen perfect form

Yep sissy, mommy was hopin’ to furm up our runny, run, runs and calm down out tummies. The ingredient list is all good fur ya’ herbs with no controversial ingredients. Mommy thought it was somethin’ like the probiotics we use that she would sprinkle over our noms. At that point she would’a tried anythin’. So, she ordered it post haste. Fanky fanks to Chewy’s speedy shipping in spite of those old hurricanes, mommy had it in her hot little hands in no time. Mommy quickly read the directions and realized she needed to make a gel/paste with it ‘stead of sprinklin’ it over our noms. Since that meant she didn’t need to wait fur meal time, mommy purromptly mixed some up. 

 

 Honest Kitchen Perfect Form

 

 

          Yep Raena, and then she put it on her finger and offured it to me furst. Me backed away and took off fur pawrts unknown as quick as me’s doubled over body would carry me. Me was faster than white lightnin’. The foto she was tryin’ to take was all a blur.

 

 Raena sniffs honest kitchen perfect form

 

 

I’s ‘member sissy. So mommy furst offured it to me like a butter spoon. You know how much we luvs a good butter spoon. But, I’s wan’t havin’ it either. So, mommy tried offurin’ it to me in one of our dinner plates. I’s moved in fur a good sniff and then backed away slowly. It kinda looked like the stinkies all over our bloomers and smelled a bit like it too. Mommy even tried smooshin’ some of it on the tip of mine’s nose so I’s would have to lick it. I’s sure fooled her. I’s shook mine’s head and swiped with mine’s paw till it was all over the floor. Then, I’s went to the bathroom and cleaned mine’s paw off in her teethies holdin’ coffee cup. I’s’ll show her, I’s thought. MOL 

 

 Raena backs away from honest kitchen perfect form

 

 

          You sure did Raena. Me doesn’t think mommy was very amused. She had just cleaned her teethies. While we might not have wanted any pawrt of The Honest Kitchen Perfect Form, we think doggies would lick it all up in no time. Maybe even a few kitties will be tempted by it.

 

Yeah sissy, we’re just really spoiled and overly picky. The thing is, Chewy has amazin’ customer service peeps. So, you can shop with confidence when you shop with Chewy. And, they offur speedy furee shippin’ on all orders of $49.00 or more and a low flat rate speedy shippin’ on all other orders. They also have a great auto-delivery program so you never run out of your pets faves. Don’t worry, you can skip, cancel or delay at any time. You can also add or remove things to/from your auto ship at any time. Sis Dezi and me give the Honest Kitchen Perfect Form 2 paws up fur it’s great ingredients and lack of side effects. Mommy gave it a thumb up fur the same reason.

Service Cats: Hands Are Not Toys

Meowllo and welcome to another Service Cat Monday. We ‘purreciate ya’ll bearin’ with us last week. We’ve got a great post fur ya’ today. Let me get the business stuff outta the way, and we’ll get to it. 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 thru her many years of animal trainin’, cats in purrticular. 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

 

 

Our question today comes from awnty Juliea and her new kitty Patzy, described as a calico/tortie mix. Now, they don’t have a blog of their own so we don’t know a lot about Patzy; just what awnty Juliea has said in comments on our posts. Patzy was adopted after awnty Juliea lost her beloved kitty Izzy. Her question refers to Patzy as a “new wild kitty” who is about 1 year old. She was adopted from their local animal shelter, so we doubt Patzy is truly wild/feral, but rather YOUNG and Kittenish. Having lived with a mature kitty, mommy says you’d be amazed at how much one forgets about kittenhood. Now, the question is, “Patzy is a loving kitty who enjoys being with me, but, she plays really rough, which I (Juliea) attribute to her calico/tortie side. I would like for her to recognize love pats as well as play pats.” She also asks about adding a “Buddy Cat” for Patzy. We’ll address the “Buddy Cat” in another post. Today we want to focus on appropriate petting. We’d also like to remind people that a cat’s color pattern or breed DOES NOT mean they are naturally Aggressive. So, Patzy’s behavior has nothing to do with her being a calico/tortie mix.

The Petting question is a great one. More than once mommy has seen people playing with their cats improperly and then wondering why kitty bites/scratches their hands or feet. We’ve heard numerous stories about those kitties that attack their owners feet while they sleep. Our immediate response is: HANDS ARE NOT TOYS!!! FEET ARE NOT TOYS!!!  The only thing hands and feet should be associated with is LOVE and Exams!!! What may be cute from a 6 week old fluff ball, isn’t so adorable from an adult 10 pound cat. It’s never too late to Train/Re-Train a behavior, but it’s always best to start with the appropriate expected behavior.

 

 Dezi gets her chin scratched while wearing her new tiger harness

Mmmmmm Me luvs a good chin scritch.

 

 

Never, Not Ever, No Way, No How should one ever use their hands as toys!!! A kitty who has learned that hands are toys, are the same kitties that bite VETs, company, children and certainly their owners. This is totally inappropriate behavior. Before bringing a new kitty or any pet for that matter home, you should already have in mind what behaviors you’re willing to allow and which behaviors won’t be tolerated. Keep in mind that some behaviors are are innate and can’t be changed. A cat needs to scratch; even a declawed cat will use a scratching post. (Please, Do NOT declaw your cat. There are other options available.) This is a behavior you can’t change. However, you can make sure kitty scratches appropriate areas with a minimal amount of Training.

So, you’ve adopted a kitty that already sees hands as toys, how do you stop that behavior and Train kitty to a more appropriate behavior? Redirection is key. When the first sign of aggression appears, immediately remove your hand, say “NO” in a firm but gentle voice, and offer kitty an appropriate toy to bite or chew on. If kitty is laying beside you or in your lap, throw the toy away from you so that kitty must chase it, and totally ignore kitty until the aggression has subsided. Do Not reward kitty’s inappropriate behavior with treats or soothing words. Even when kitty goes for the toy instead of your hand, keep silent. There’ll be plenty of time for love and rewards later.

 

 Raena lays in mommy's lap and enjoys some loving

 

 

Let’s talk a bit about how to PET your cat. Some kitties really like what mommy calls the “Long Pet”. The “Long Pet” has the hand moving down a kitties back from the head to the tail and can include tail scritches. But, the reality is, that most cats get overstimulated and often start nipping at the hand. Remember, the head and face of kitty is welcoming and calm, the tail and hind end of kitty is used to express aggression and ownership. Click here to read about the importance of kitty’s scent glands and what each means. Almost all cats love a good chin scratching, behind the ears and around the face. Petting kitty’s head, chin, neck and upper back around the shoulder blades rarely cause over stimulation. Do Not Rub against the natural direction of kitty’s fur. Do Not “ruffle” kitty’s fur, instead commit to the pet and gently stroke kitty’s head down to the shoulder blades. At the first sign that kitty is going to bite, Remove your hand, Redirect kitty’s attention and Ignore kitty. Before you know it, kitty will enjoy receiving pets as much as you enjoy giving them.

 

 Raena getting mommy love while laying in her lap

 

 

As for the late night, early morning foot attacks, ignore kitty. Do Not encourage kitty’s attacks by moving your feet and toes. You might want to keep a few of kitty’s favorite toys on the night table to employ Redirection. Like the toilet paper rolls, this isn’t something you will have to do for the life time of kitty, only until kitty learns. Each cat learns at a different pace. You must remember to be Consistent. Training Never Stops or takes a vacation. However, once kitty has learned that hands and feet are not toys, there will be little need for continued Redirection. While teaching kitty that hands equal love, it’s a good idea to occasionally run your hands all over kitty’s body the way a VET would during an exam. This will help make kitty calmer during an already stressful situation. And as always, remember, Training is all about Repetition and Rewards. And, Hands and Feet Are NOT toys.

  

Well, we hope this has helped. Ifin ya’ have any questions about this post or any other topic, please leave it in the comments section of this post or send us an email to lexi.dezi@yahoo.com. Ifin you’ve missed any of the posts in this series, you can ketch up by clickin’ the links below.

Blest Sunday: Southern Hospitality Only Goes So Far

MeOW Raena, it’s time fur Blest Sunday.

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

 

          Sure ‘nuff sissy. And have we ever been Blessed. As most of ya’ know, we recently had visitors. Today, we’re gonna wrap up that visit. Ifin ya’ missed pawrt 1, you can read it here. Now, let’s get on with our visit.

 

 Raena looks up at Gizmo sitting in Mary's lap

Hey Gizmo, mine’s name is RaenaBelle.

 

 

We’ve had several peeps remawrk ‘bout how well we did havin’ Gizmo the kitty visit with us Raena. We should admit that there was a couple of hisses and one growl. We’re not meowin’ who did the hissin’ or the growlin’, since there was no fightin’ or whacky paws involved. Mommy says it was mostly pawsturin’ and lettin’ each other know when one was a bit too close fur comfurt. Ya’ know, it may be our nature to sniff backsides, but that doesn’t mean the sniffee actually enjoys it. Fur the most pawrt, we had a great and uneventful visit, kitties and humans too. Our Southern hospitality shined.

 

 Mommy A holds Raena

I’s luvs mine’s mommy.

 

 

          Yeah sissy, awnty Mary Beth took lots of fotos of me and you with mommy. You know how happy that made mommy. She always says she doesn’t have many fotos of her with us. I’s could’a done with a good brushin’ tho’, cuz mine’s neck ruff was a bit wild. But, I’s really don’t care. I’s just luvs it when mommy holds me, ruffled furs or not. 

 

Mommy A holds Dezi

Fotos with mommy. Me’s all in.

 

Yep Raena, and you just luv the camera. MOL 

 

Raena checks out the pizza boxIs that pizza? Hmmmm Now where’s mine’s plate?

          Well sissy, you missed what happened next cuz of those noisy thunder boomers. Uncle Garth left fur a few minutes and when he returned, he brought in a pizza. Oh Kittens  Did it ever smell delishus. But then, the worst thing that could’a happened, happened. Mommy didn’t even fix me a plate. Nope, not even a snack plate. ‘Stead, mommy, awnty Mary Beth and uncle Garth sat there eatin’ OUR PIZZA!!!  Can you believe it? I’s sure couldn’t. Don’t they know that pizzas are kitty food? Not to mention, pizza is our favorite food. I’s tried to help mine’s self to a slice, but I’s couldn’t balance on the wheelchair arm and open the box at the same time. So, I’s gave ‘em the ole kitty evil eye.

 

 Raena sniffs the pizza

Yep, that’s pizza. Yummmmmmm The smell’s divine.

 

 

Well Raena, did it work? 

 

 Raena sniffs the pizza

I’s’ll just help mine’s self.

 

 

Raena looks over the pizza box

Hey! Just who do ya’ll think you are? Don’t you know any pizza

that comes in this house belongs to us cats?

 

 

 

          Not very well. Least, they did leave us a piece each. Like that was gonna fill us up. Hmmmpht Even worse, mommy didn’t save us any of the pepperoni’s off the pieces she ate. I’s mean, she ate every last bite, just like we weren’t even there. The nerve. I’s tellin’ ya’, I’s just couldn’t believe mine’s own blue eyes. All mine’s Southern Belle hospitality flew right out the window when that happened. You know, Southern Hospitality can only go so far. And then, they wanted to take luvvy dovey fotos with me. Hmmmpht  Like that was gonna happen. MOL

 

 Mary Beth holds Raena while Raena looks at her

Alright awnty Mary Beth, one kiss…just one I’s said.

 

Oh Raena, mommy takes really good care of us. Just cuz we didn’t get 1 pizza shouldn’t make you act ugly. We did get a piece later. And besides, we luv awnty Mary Beth, uncle Garth and Gizmo. Me was very purroud of you fur sharin’ the cat tree with him. And lettin’ awnty Mary Beth and uncle Garth hold you. Me was also purroud of ya’, that you didn’t get all jealous when mommy gave Gizzy some luvvin’. 

 

 Raena lays in Garth's lap

Hmmmmmm I’s thinkin’ men, a daddy to be purrcise,

might not be so bad after all. Mommmmmmmy…?

 

 

          Of course I’s didn’t get jealous sissy. After all, he never took off his jacket (harness), so I’s knew he wasn’t actually stayin’. And, I’s know mommy has purrlenty of luvvin’ to go ‘round. Cousin Gizzy seemed to like the scent me up game too. Mommy said his motor boat started right up. I’s surpurrised he didn’t float right off her lap.

 

Mommy A plays scent me up with Gizmo

Purrrrrrrrrrrr Love ya’ autny A

 

 

Hmmmpht You know better Raena. Mommy’s hold may look gentle, but she’s got a furm grasp on any kitty she holds. They ain’t goin’ anywhere lessen she wants ‘em too. MOL  Me sure hated that they had to leave so soon. Cuz of those thunder boomers, me missed sayin’ goodbye. So me looked fur them all day the next day.

 

 Mommy A holds Gizmo

 

 

          Me too sissy. Our visit was way too short. I’s sure hope they can come back.

 

Yep Raena. Ya’ know, we never ‘magined meetin’ any of our online furiends when we started all this. But, we have been so blessed that we’ve actually met quite a few of them. We’re always up fur a visit from our amazin’ furiends and wish we could meet you all. We’re sure hopin’ we can manage to go to BlogPaws this next year. It’s really close to us, so we’d hate to miss it. You’d have a great time Raena. Sis Lexi and me really had a blast the year we went. 

 

 Mary Beth holds Raena

I’s luvs ya’ awnty Mary Beth, even ifin ya’ didn’t share your pizza with me.

 

 

          And we could meet more furiends? (Dezi nods to Raena) I’s would luvs that sissy. In the meantime, anypawdy who wants to come and see us…Come on down, Southern hospitality at Deziz World reigns.

 

 Garth, Mary Beth and mommy A

Uncle Garth, Awnty Mary Beth and mommy A

 

 

Sure ‘nuff Raena, even ifin we don’t get a pizza. MOL  We wanna fank uncle Garth, awnty Mary Beth and Gizmo fur comin’ to see us and fur everythin’. They’ve been really good to us. Ya’ know, they sent us our kitty beds, toys and green papers and all kinds of goodies thru the years. Mostly, they’ve luvved us and our mommy. We are so blest to have so many pawsum furiends. And yep, YOU, yes you readin’ this posty are one of them. Fank you so much fur bein’ a pawrt of our lives. We luv you very much. We think ‘bout and purray fur all our furiends every day, you included. Like we always do, we’d like to remind you to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your life. Maybe, we’re one of ‘em.

          I’s couldn’t have meowed it better mine’s self sissy. We’d also like to say, we think (paws crossed) the car’s fixed. Mommy ordered the pawrt and the neighbor boy put it on fur us this past week. Mommy’s still gotta make a few more short test drives just to be on the safe side, but we’re purretty sure, the car is good to go. We’ll keep ya’ posted. Mommy was shocked at the cost of oil and anti-freeze. So, mine’s VET ‘pointment is on hold fur a bit. Fanky fank you all fur your purrayers and good wishes. They do help. Ifin you could spare a purrayer fur our awnty Ellen and her Phoebe cat from 15 and Meowing, we’d purreciate it. We’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. We’re gonna go play now.

Chatting Cats: Welcome To Our Tree Gizmo

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Most of ya’ have expurressed an interest in hearin’ ‘bout our recent guests. We’re so x’cited to meow ‘bout it; so grab your coffee, tea or drink of your choice and read on. We’re runnin’ really late, but wait’ll ya’ see all the fotos. We really do luv meetin’ our furiends. Ifin we could, we would visit all of ya’ in the fur to fur/flesh. So, let me set the stage fur ya’. 

 

 Raena watches for Gizmo from the cat tree

 

Dezi lays atop the cat tree

 

 

          Raena, me should set the stage. After all, they were me’s furiends furst. So, it went somethin’ like this: A few weeks ago mommy got an email from awnty Mary Beth, who lives in Arizona. She said her, uncle Garth and our sweet furiend Gizmo were comin’ our way and wanted to pay us a visit. Mommy squealed with delight and told Raena and me we had a surpurrise comin’ on September 17th. We thought the 17th was never gonna get here. But alas, the day furinally came and Raena and me set up on the cat tree to watch fur our surpurrise. 

 

 Raena meets Gizmo

 

 

We sure did sissy. but, as the day went by, you got tired of waitin’ and went to the back to take a nap. See sissy? I’s didn’t say anythin’ ‘bout the thunder boomers. Anyways, I’s kept mine’s watch out the door, even tho’ I’s didn’t know what I’s was watchin’ fur. Minutes turned into hours and hours into days. Okay, so maybe that’s stretchin’ it a bit, but it seemed like furever. Furinally, mommy jumped up and said, “Dezi!!! Raena!!! They’re here!!!” And then she jumped up and opened the door. Once everypawdy came inside and sat down, I’s headed over to meet mine’s new furiend.

          Yep Raena, and then mommy came to wake me up so me could come and visit too. Me could hardly believe me’s awnty Mary Beth, uncle Garth and Gizmo were actually sittin’ in me’s house. MeOWwwwww  Me knows sis Lexi would’a luvved to meet ‘em, so me had to say an extra hey cuz she couldn’t be here. ‘Course, mommy wanted to do a lot of talkin’, so me went to lay on the cat tree and let them do their human stuffs.

 

 Raena looks up at Gizmo sitting in Mary's lap

Hey Gizmo, mine’s name is RaenaBelle. So nice to meet ya’.

Wanna play on our cool cat tree?

 

 

Yep sissy, humans sure do like to talk don’t they?. Unfurtunately, it had been threatenin’ to storm all day, and the thunder boomers started rumblin’ thru shortly after they got here.

 

 

Mary Beth holds Gizmo

Awnty Mary Beth and Gizmo

 

 

          They sure did Raena. With all the extra peeps in the house, me had to go make absolutely sure there were no spiders or any other pesky pests that were gonna get anypawdy.

Sure sissy, whatever you say. It’s just too bad you spent most of the day UTB (under the bed). Gizmo and I had lots of fun. We hung out on the cat tree getting’ our fotos taken. Did you know mommy offured him one of our Yeowww nip nanners? Gizzy was a little to nervous to let loose and enjoy the goodness of the nip nanner. So, mommy sent it home with him fur all of his fursibs to enjoy. We don’t mind sharin’, ‘specially since mommy bought us extra with the money awnty Vonda had sent fur your birthday last year. You know, we think every kitty oughtta have the joy of a Yeowww nip nanner at least once in their lives. Awnty Mary Beth said Gizzy’s not too crazy ‘bout his harness and that’s why he wouldn’t let loose and play. I’s offured to put mine’s harness on ifin it would make him more comfurtable. 

 

          That sure was nice of ya’ Raena.

Well sissy, it was the least I’s could do. Mommy shared her cofee with uncle Garth. And you know I’s wanna be just like mommy.

 

          Mommy didn’t actually share her coffee Raena, she made uncle Garth a cup of coffee all his own. 

 

That’s what I’s meant sissy. Kittens!!! Ya’ think I’s said they were drinkin’ outta the same cup. Hmmpht  Anyways, you’re never gonna believe what happened next… 

 

Garth and Mary Beth

 

 

Stay tuned, we’ll be back with the rest of the story Sunday. T’ween the hunnerd fotos mommy took and the 157 fotos awnty Mary Beth took, we’re tryin’ to show as many as we can without goin’ overboard. But, that’s a lot of fotos and mommy’s eyes started crossin’ lookin’ at ’em all. MOL 

 

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