Chatting Cats: Lap Hogs and Forgetfulness
Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. And it’s Furiday!!! I’s don’t know why we’re so x’cited ‘bout that, but we are. To me, it just seems like any other day.
Fur us Raena, it is like any other day. But humans have been celebratin’ the arrival of Furiday fur a long time. It used to mean the weekend was here and peeps didn’t have to work fur a couple of days. Now we live in a 24/7 world so peeps might be off work in the middle of the week ‘stead of the weekend. Still, we get x’cited fur Furiday.
Oh, okay. Whatever. Hey, did you hear mommy say that Ms. A was comin’ over today?
Yeah Raena, me did. When we made me’s hat fur summer camp, we broke the needle on the sewin’ machine. Seems mommy can’t hardly see it to replace it, so Ms. A’s gonna come help her. Mommy hand’t been that worried ‘bout it since we don’t actually have any material fur her to sew. But, when she was over there takin’ somethin’ to Nubs, they got to talkin’ ‘bout sewin’ and, well, the rest as they say is history. Me’s just happy to see mr. Sunshine again.
Oooooh Me too, sissy. Me too. It had been so yucky and drab lookin’ fur ever. I’s thought mr. Sunshine packed up his bags like ms. Fall. I’s was thinkin’ old man Winter must be really inhospitable.
Well Raena, you can keep right on thinkin’ that, cuz he is. Me can’t believe you can’t ‘member last winter?. You weren’t that young.
Maybe I’s have mommy’s furgetful disease, sissy.
Oh Purrlease Raena. That ain’t no disease, that’s old age. And, well, purroblems left over from her accident. Me thinks your purroblem has more to do with your care furee catitude. You don’t care ‘bout anythin’ so long as you can lay in mommy’s lap. You’re such a lap hog.
I’s luvs mommy sissy and I’s luvs layin’ in her lap. It’s the bestest seat in the house. (Feeling that Dezi may want to sit in mommy’s lap, Raena jumps up first and makes herself comfortable)
Me knows Raena. And me would like to sit in it ever once in a while too. You know, mommy’s lap belonged to me furst. And, it iiiiis me’s birthday month, ya’ know.
Purrrrrrrrrlease, what does that have to do with anythin’? (Raena meows from mommy’s lap)
(Dezi paws at mommy’s leg from the floor and whaps Raena who’s bathing and oblivious to Dezi’s plight) C’mon Raena, it’s me’s birthday month and that means me gets more special luvvin’ this whole month. More specials than you even. Now Meow-ve!!!
(Raena jumps to the back of the chair and looks down at Dezi who mommy has picked up and put in her lap) Okay sissy, it can be your turn now. You know I’s luvs you too. How ‘bout we play later. Maybe, I’s’ll even let mommy take you fur a stroll furst ifin mr. Sunshine sticks ‘round.
Hey, some of ya’ asked ’bout that cutesy tunnel toy with the track I’s was playin’ with in our last posty. We got it at Wally World the day I’s had to get mine’s rabies shot. It had been returned cuz pawrt of it was broken, so they had it on clearance fur $2.00. Mommy was able to add some tape and poke a few extra holes in the tunnel to make it work fur us. We don’t ‘member what it was called, nor do we know how much it actually costs.
Till the next time…………………………………..Be Blest!!!
