Chatting Cats: The World Stopped Spinning So We’re Back

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Sissy, c’mon, the world’s stopped spinnin’ and we can load our site again.

 

 Dezi sits pretty in the hall behind my chair

 

 

 

          Are you sure? Me’s so tired of waitin’ fur the pages to load. Mommy says it’s cuz we live so far out and the innernet peeps haven’t upgraded the wirin’ ‘round here in like, furEVER. 

 

Raena sits pretty and poses on top of the Litter Robot boxThis box is huge, mommy.

 

 

I’s sure sissy. I’s already checked. What did you think ‘bout that big box we got delivered yesfurday?  

 

 Dezi lays on cat tree

 

 

          The box is great Raena. It’s what was in the box that me’s not so sure ‘bout. Mommy says we have to use it cuz we’re s’posed to write a review. 

 

 Raena lays on litter robot box

 

 

 

Yeah sissy, but I’s think it’s ‘bout more than just writin’ a review. Mommy seems really x’cited ‘bout it and says it’s gonna be a big help to her. Anyways, I’s just glad we can get back on the catputer. We’ve not been able to visit our furiends fur days. ‘Course, that did give mommy some time to clean the house. You know we’re havin’ a play date soon and we wanna make a good impurr-sion.

 

 Dezi sits with back to camera

Hmmmmm let’s see, where are we gonna put that thing?

 

 

 

          Yep Raena, me can’t wait. It’s gonna be so much fun. We haven’t had a play date in so long. By the way, did you hear mommy on the fone last night with Ms. A, Nub’s mommy? 

 

 Nubs the black and white manx cat looks at the camera

Bye Nubs. RIP

 

 

 

I’s did sissy. It’s so sad. We hadn’t been over to see him in a couple of weeks. Mommy had said we were gonna take him some special treats this week and then this happens. Ya’ know, Ms. A ended up with Nubs after his person died and nopawdy wanted him. We just can’t ‘magine what it must have been like fur him. Mommy says that’s why it’s so ‘purrtant to make plans fur us fur babies in the event we happen to outlive our peeps. Unfurtunately fur Nubs, he went to heaven on Monday. Ms. A had been at her daughters house, and when she got home, Nubs was layin’ in the kitchen almost dead. He died in Ms. A’s arms on the way to the V-E-T. 

 

          It’s really sad, Raena. but, at least he knew luv befur he left this world. 

 

He also knew the joy of a Yeowww nip nanner since we shared one with him. 

 

 Dezi plays with her new birthday nip nana

 

 

 

 

 

          Then ya’ know he was a happy kitty. Anyways, ‘nuff sad stuffs. Ya’ know, Christmas is comin’ up really soon. Me can’t wait fur mommy to put up our tree so we can watch all the lights. You know, you’re gonna have to leave the decorations alone. The tree baubles aren’t toys.

 

Raena plays with the Yeowww nip nana

 

 

Me?!!! What ‘bout you, sissy? I’s seem to ‘member it was you that mommy had to get on to last year.

 

          That’s not true and you know it. Me thought you didn’t ‘member anythin’ ‘bout your furst Christmas?

 

 Raena plays in the gift bag paper

 

 

 

How could I’s pawssubly furget somethin’ like Christmas, sissy? We got lots of purresents from our Angel furiends. And, we got to go visit and sing carols to the peeps in what mommy called an old folks home. I’s can’t wait to do that again. We are gonna do it again, aren’t we sissy? 

 

 Dezi getting love while laying in mommy's lap

 

 

 

          Mommy says some of the rules have changed. But, she’s gonna call and ask ifin we can come again this year. Me just luvs all the lights and decorations this time of year brings ‘bout. And peeps seem to act a little nicer too.

 

 Raena sits on bed beside chair, profile

 

 

 

That’s nice sissy. I’s wish peeps would be nicer all the time. Maybe our world wouldn’t be so full of hate.  Ya’ know, we better get busy visitin’ our furiends, and helpin’ mommy clean up fur our play date. I’s’ll race ya’ to the new box.

 

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

          I’s comin’ sissy, I’s just gonna have one more bite of turkey tom lurkey. Sorry Trout Towne Tabbies, but we do luvs a bite of furesh cooked turkey tom lurkey.

 

 Dezi stands in middle of floor licking lips

 

 

 

That we do Raena. But, we’ve got some freeze dried salmon bits just in case any of our fish luvvin’ furiends happen to paw on over. We sure did enjoy us a nice meal on Fanksgivin’, didn’t we Raena?

 

 Raena eats treats on the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          Sure ‘nuff sissy. Fanky fanks to awnty Cindy and angel Maggie Meme, awnty Vonda and awnty Petal fur the green papers. We went to the store and dug through the bin till mommy found a nice lookin’ little breast fur the three of us. She got some more of those big ole bakin’ taters too, and some bread and dinner rolls. You know how much mommy luvs her bread. 

 

Groceries for Thanksgiving dinnerFank you fur this food. We’re enjoyin’ every last bite.

 

 

 

 

Yep, and a teeny milk to go with the noodles and the rest of that powdered cheese fur cheater mac and cheese. Mommy says the rest of the green papers will go towards a V-E-T visit fur your eyes. We gotta figger out why they won’t clear up lessen you’re on the steroids and antibiotics. And, did ya’ hear? Timmy, uncle Pete and the furmily sent me some green papers fur me’s Gotchaday. Fank ya’ll bunches. Me’s thinkin’ maybe we can sneak on the catputer tomorrow with all the other crazy cyber Monday shoppers. Who knows what we’ll find?.

 

          Maybe we can even spare a little to get mommy a donut. I’s not know what a cravin’ is, but she’s been yowlin’ ‘bout donuts fur days now. I’s thinkin’ that’s Bear Kat Cat’s fault. MOL

 

We’ll see Raena. Ya’ know, we’ve been meowin’ ‘bout this and that today, and while we’re sure fankful fur our Fanksgivin’ blessings, we should really meow what we’re most fankful fur.

 

 Raena sleeps while laying on cat tree

I’s so fanky fankful fur mine’s mommy and mine’s home and mine’s

sissy and awwwwwww-ll of you.

 

 

 

          That’s easy sissy. We’re most fanky fankful fur mommy and our furever home. We’re fanky fankful fur full bellies, a warm place to lay our heads and the most pawsum furiends in the universe. Ya’ know, we’re so blest to have what we do. There are so many kitties and even peeps out there that be less furtunate than us. Mommy ‘members a time when she wondered where she and Shad would sleep or when she might get to eat, and says it’s no fun at all. And, with the weather getting’ colder, we so worry ‘bout those livin’ outside.

 

 Dezi lays in lap getting love close up

This is the life.

 

 

 

Yeah Raena, we don’t like to think ‘bout any kitty livin’ outside at any time of the year, but we really worry at this time of year ‘specially. Seriously, ifin ya’ have any strays or ferals livin’ in your neck of the woods, purrlease do what ya’ can to help ‘em out. There’s lots of infurmation on da innernets ‘bout makin’ cheap shelters and surely ya’ can spare a few bites fur the less furtunate. The Bible says, ya’ never know when ya’ might be entertainin’ angels unaware. Yeah, me parameowed it. Now we’ll be honest and tell ya’ we don’t know ifin that might be refurrin’ to kitties, but hey, we don’t know it ain’t. What we can tell ya’, is that a little kindness goes a long way.

 

Raena lays in mommy's lap and gets loving

Yep, life is gooooooood.

 

 

          That’s so true sissy. We’ll be lookin’ out fur any kitties that happen to come our way. And, we’ll be purrayin’ fur all of you and all those we don’t know who might not be as blest as we are. We luv you all so much and are so grateful to have you in our lives. Each of you are a blessing we count every day. 

 

 Kitten and rose animated for you emoji

They are and we do, Raena. We’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. We’d also like to remind ya’ that we won’t be postin’ tomorrow. The innernets are already startin’ to act all wonky and slow, so we’ll be unplugged as they say, enjoyin’ some of those Fanksgivin’ left overs. 

 

 Animated thank you rose

 

          Don’t furget sissy, we’re also linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies

 

Ya’ just did Raena. 

 

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

Taters and Cheese: Shopping Round the World

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Are ya’ll at home like us, or are ya’ out shoppin’ with all the other mad hatters? MOL  Wouldn’t do us any good to have lots of green papers to spend today cuz we’re getting’ a really late start.

 

Dezi lays atop the liberty cat tree while Raena stands sniffing at the shelf

 

 

          That’s wha’ch’a get when you keep mommy up till 6 a.m., Raena. A late start. 

 

Me?!!! you make it sound like it’s all mine’s fault mommy didn’t go to bed till 6 this meownin’. I’s thinkin’ your just as much to blame as me. After all, you had the exploration zoomies too.

 

          Wha…uh…hmmmmm  Me doesn’t ‘member any such thing.

 

 

 Dezi and Raena look out door from cat tree and small perch

 

 

Well sissy, ‘member it or not, you was havin’ just as much fun as me. Anyways, do you ‘member Phenny woofin’ ‘bout this Shoppin’ ‘Round the World posty with him and Bacon? You meowed that we were gonna purrticipate this month cuz it was featurin’ an ingredient mommy’s had intimate knowledge of this past year. I’s never purrticipated in a shoppin’ posty befur; what do we do?

 

          Yeah Raena, me ‘members. We quit postin’ cuz mommy couldn’t affurd to shop. But this past year she’s ‘bought more taters than purrobably the whole blogosphere. So, to purrticipate, we link up like ya’ just did and then we post a tater recipe and list the purrices of the items we used.

 

 8 pound bag of jumbo potatoes

 

 

 

I’s see. Well, fanky fanks to some furiends, mommy went shoppin’ just the other day to pick up some goodies fur Fanky Fanksgivin’. Among the groceries she brought home was a bag of big ole bakin’ taters. And, this month’s topic just happens to be Taters. Mommy got that big ole 8 pound bag of jumbo taters on sale fur the holidays at $1.99 + tax. That’s the cheapest she’s seen taters in the last couple of years. Most of this last year she’s had to pay $4.99 a bag plus tax.

 

          Sure ‘nuff Raena. Mommy likes to keep butter on hand in case we need medicine or somethin’. The last pound of butter mommy bought was $4.57 + tax. So, we’re gonna meow ‘bout a delishus baked cheesy tater and cheese fries. Here’s the recipe along with ingredients and costs.

  • Cheese (see above)

  • Fryin’ Oil, mommy likes corn, but we had some vegetable in the cabinet: 24 ounces on sale fur $3.99 + tax

 Cheese Fries

 

 

 

Mommy does luvs her cheese doesn’t she sissy? And butter. Mommy luvs butter like any good Southern Belle. I’s luvs cheese too, but mommy won’t let me have very much. She says it stops things from working right and means I’s have to have extra butter spoons. Anyways, either of these dishes can make a meal. Mommy says ya’ get a starchy vegetable, a little protein and dairy.

 

          That’s true Raena, but me would rather have some meat. Me wants me’s protein from a nice juicy rabbit, not some cheesy tater.

Mmmmmm Rabbit. I’s with you sissy. Well, we better go now. We’ve still got lots of extra luvvin’ to take advantage of. Mommy says we’ll be takin’ Monday off. Seems last year the innernets was so busy and slow, we could hardly get anythin’ done.

 

          Yeah Raena, Cyber Monday is a big shoppin’ day. All those who didn’t shop today or didn’t get everythin’ they wanted today, will be trollin’ the net fur deals a purrlenty. We can’t wait to see all the tater recipes today. Maybe mommy can get a few new ideas.

Maybe sissy, but I’s thinkin’ mommy’s purretty tired of taters right now. Anyways, let’s go play. Maybe we can even go fur a stroll later.

 

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