Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Ya’ll ain’t never gonna believe what we got yesfurday.
Raena, we were gonna save that fur Blest Sunday. You know, that’s when we post our thank yous and blessings.
I’s know, but since I’s usin’ it, I’s thought it would be nice to mention it today, at least.
You’re right, it is pawfully comfurtable. But hurry, we need to get to that meme thing we were gonna do today.
Okay, sissy. So, as I’s was meowin’ befur I’s was so rudely innerrupted…
Raena, be nice.
Anyways, Ya’ll ‘member the cool cat shelf we reviewed and gave away from Art of Paws? Well, we also gave away a couple of heated pet mats from the same company. Based on all the comments, it seemed really pawpular. We hadn’t actually gotten to try the mat cuz when we met Maya and her cats, they didn’t ship it to the U.S.. But, as mommy always says, patience is a virtue and good things come to those who wait.
Me doesn’t think it goes like that Raena. Me thinks you’ve got a couple meowin’s mixed up.
Just who’s meowin’ the story here, sissy? Anyways, as time went on, Maya started bein’ more like our awnty than some big ole company. ‘Course, maybe that’s cuz she ain’t no big ole company. After all, it is just her and her four kitties runnin’ the company from their home across the pond. Anyways, after wrappin’ up our give aways and passin’ winner’s infurmation along, we fanky fanked Maya and the kitties fur their generosity. And then, yesfurday the fedex man arrived with a box just fur us. Can ya’ guess what was in it? Sure ‘nuff, awnty Maya and the Art of Paws kitties sent us our very own heated mat. It’s even more furtabulous than we had ‘magined it would be. Fanky fank ya’ awnty Maya, Paisley, Smudge, Agyle and Bailey. With all the colds, it sure is comin’ in handy. Even mommy’s a bit jealous at how comfy it looks.
Check it out Raena, our very own heated cat mat.
We are very fankful awnty Maya, and we luv our new heated mat. Me reckons ya’ll will be seein’ lots more of our mat as the colds get colder. Now, our stunnin’ furiend CK has been doin’ this thing she calls memes. We’re not so good at those, but we do luv meowin’ ‘bout ourselves. So, CK has posted 20 questions fur us to answer. Ifin enuff of us play along, she’ll make this a regular thing. You can purrticipate by postin’ it on your bloggy and linkin’ back to CK or you can post your answers here in the comments. We’re not sure ifin we were allowed to use CK’s foto, so you’ll have to hop on over to her place to see the “meme” pawrt. Now, let’s get those questions goin’.
1. What was the last thing you put in your mouth? Raena. Nah, me’s just kitten ya’, really it was me’s brekky.
2. Where was your header pic taken? The Liberty Cat tree in our house.
3. Worst pain you ever felt? That has to be when me was spayed. Me hurt so bad, me actually bit right thru mommy’s thumb, nail and all.
4. Favorite place you’ve traveled? BlogPaws in Nashville Tennessee. What a trip. Just me and sis Lexi and mommy in a furiegn land. MOL
5. How late did you stay up last night? 5 a.m. as usual.
6. If you could move, where to? Anywhere, so long as mommy and Raena are there. And, we’d luv to move. Just meowin’.
7. What do you collect? Hugs and kisses
8. Which of your blogging friends lives the closest? Hmmmmm Well, we’re really not sure. We’re purrobably ‘bout the same distance from our furiends Travis in Texas as we are our furiends from Prancer Pie here in Oklahoma. Ifin anypawdy’s closer, give us a shout out.
9. Amusement park or concert? Amusement Pawrk of course. We luv goin’ fur rides.
10. When was the last time you cried? Last night. Me was missin’ sis Lexi.
It’s mines turn, sissy. I’s gonna answer the last 10.
11. Who took your header photo? Mommy of course. She’s the only one with thumbs.
12. Who’s the last person you took a picture with? Mommy, of course. It’s just the three of us.
13. What’s your favorite season? Anytime I’s can go fur a stroll or get purresents.
14. If you could have any career, what would it be? I’s already have several. I’s a Service Cat that helps mommy. I’s a blogger/writer. And I’s the Princess of our manor. Really I’s the Queen, but let’s not upset sissy, k?.
15. Do you think relationships are ever worth it? I’s not sure what kind’a relationship you be meowin’ ‘bout. The one I’s have with mommy is fur sure worth it, as is the one I’s have with sis Dezi. Seems the boycats ain’t all that innerested in me, so I’s can’t meow ‘bout that.
16. If you could talk to anyone right now who would it be? I’s hear our furiend Nellie was quite good at ketchin’ the mencats hearts. Maybe ifin I’s could meow with her, I’s could break a few hearts mine’s self.
Uh, did I’s meow that? I’s didn’t really mean I’s wanted to break any hearts. I’s just usin’ old meowins.
17. Are you a good influence? Most definitely, I’s a true Southern Belle. Pawlite, sweet, good natured, and (looks around and whispers) gawjus.
18. Does pineapple belong on pizza? Does that come from a cow? I’s an obligate carnivore, so I’s think only meats and some cheese, I’s do like cheese. Anyways, no pineapples fur me.
19. You have the remote, what are you watching? Oh Kittens!!! There’s so many good shows to watch. I’s think I’s would purrobably watch mine’s cousins the lions.
20. Whom do you think will play along? This has been really fun. I’s hope everypawdy plays along.
So, there ya’ have it. Do you enjoy learnin’ more ‘bout us like this? We do hope lots of peeps, cats, dogs and whoever/whatever else will join us in CK’s 20 Facts game.
We sure do sissy. We luvs learnin’ more ‘bout our furiends and hope they enjoy learnin’ more ‘bout us. Gotta go now, Travis the wheelchair man is on his way to adjust mommy’s new powerchair.

MeOW RaenaBelle, you sure are spoilt rotten. It’s me’s turn to lay in mommy’s lap. You’re always hoggin’ it, like it’s your own.
Like, it’s mines? There ain’t no like ‘bout it sissy, mommy’s lap is all mine’s. Haven’t you ever heard of furst come furst served? Or finders keepers, losers weepers?. I’s was here furst, so mommy’s lap belongs to me by default.
That’s the most ridiculous thing me’s ever heard, Raena. Haven’t you ever heard of share and share again? Or, sharin’ is carin’? Me does believe that’s mommy’s meowntra. After all, me had to share me’s cat tree, me’s nip nanner and everythin’ else with you when you came to live here. Ifin we we’re goin’ by your rules, you’d have nuffin’. And me does mean a big ole fat nuffin’. Me was here furst and mommy was me’s mommy furst.
Fine sissy, just a few more minutes, okay? Can’t you see mommy’s takin’ fotos of me?
Me wants to take fotos too, Raena. Just hurry up.
(Raena stretches her paw towards mommy’s face and quietly mews as she gets down and heads for the new powerchair) I’s sure do luvs you mommy.
(Dezi stand sideways in front of mommy’s chair so she can be picked up to lay in mommy’s lap.) Me luvs you, mommy. Lots more than Raena does. You know, me’s luvved you longer. Purrlease, cover the red flash befur ya’ take the next foto, mommy. There now, that’s better. (After a few photos, the wind blows the leaves around outside and something hits the door. Dezi jumps up and heads for the cat tree to look out.) That’s enuff fotos mommy, me has to check out what’s goin’ on outside. It’s turned cold again, so ya’ never know what might be tryin’ to get inside. Besides, we’ve got purrlenty of visitin’ to ketch up on. We can’t spend every day lazin’ ‘round.
Till the next time………………………………………….Be Blest!!!

Deztinee and RaenaBelle
Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We furinally got some sleep and are ready fur the IndyCat 5000.
Raena!!! What in the world are you meowin’ ‘bout? Just what is the IndyCat 5000?
Y, It’s a race…isn’t it sissy? Ya’ know, fur cats with wheels?.
Uh, No. Raena, there’s no such thing as a race fur kitties with wheels. And me thinks the real race you’re thinkin’ ‘bout is the Indy 500 fur crazy men in cars.
You mean they let crazy men in cars race, but they don’t let us kitties race? That doesn’t seem fair.
Who said life was fair, Raena? Me knows you didn’t hear that ‘round here. Nuffin’ ‘bout life is fair, ya’ just make the bestest of what life throws at ya’. We’re purretty blest ‘round here, but even fur us, things don’t always go as planned.
Ain’t that the truth, sissy. We’re so grateful to have the new power chair, but it seems a bit strange. Mommy said she was gonna have to call mr. Travis back out to fix it. Ya’ know, mommy’s really tall, so it looked really funny when she wheeled up to the counter to make us brekky and couldn’t even see over the counter, much less reach it. Seems mr. Travis thought mommy was either really really tall or has really really long arms.
Yeah Raena, he delivered it on his day off and had several other chairs to deliver, so he didn’t make adjustments to it the day he dropped it off. Mommy got the directions out last night and learned she’d have to take the whole seat off to make it taller. Since it’s too heavy and bulky fur mommy to meow-neuver, she’s gonna have to have mr. Travis come out and do it fur us.
I’s sure hope he can come soon sissy. I’s can’t wait to take it fur a spin.
Me’s sure you can’t. While we’re on the subject, mommy thought it would be helpful ifin we ‘splained a few things ‘bout power chairs in general. We have a furiend whose mommy has been wantin’ one, but we don’t think she’s considered everythin’ that comes with it. We hope her mommy’s up to readin’ this posty. The furst thing to consider is how long it’s gonna take to get a power chair. As many of you know, we’ve been waitin’ fur well over 6 months. And, this isn’t our furst power chair. Mommy’s had one fur goin’ on 20 years now. Ya’ might be askin’ yourself what difference does that make?. Well, ifin you’ve already had a powerchair, then you’re guaranteed to be approved fur another one, so long as your old chair is a full 5 years old. Gettin’ approved fur one initially can take even longer. There are exceptions, but don’t be surpurrised ifin it takes up to a year to get approved fur your furst ever powerchair.
Ain’t that the truth, sissy. Once you’ve gotten your powerchair, there’s lots of other things to take into account. Lessen you live in a handicap ‘pawrtment or home, you’re gonna have a lot of trouble reachin’ counters and cabinets and stuffs. Ya’ can’t detach anythin’ on a powerchair. The foot rest can fold up, but the wheels come out ‘bout a foot from the actual seat in both the front and back, and they can’t be removed. The joystick controller on the arm also extends about a foot out from the actual seat. Obviously, ya’ can’t remove it either.
Yep Raena, and a really big thing to consider is that the power chair is bulky and heavy. It can’t be pushed ‘round like a manual one. And, ifin the batteries die or somethin’ goes wrong, you’ll be without your powerchair till a repairman can come out and look at it. That could take anywhere from a few days to 6 months. In the meantime, you’ve got nuffin’ to help ya’ get ‘round. Trust me when me says, we luv our powerchair, and livin’ without it is a real pain, but, it ain’t fur everypawdy. Ifin you’re gettin’ ‘round with a manual chair or walker/cane, ya’ might wanna think twice befur wantin’ a powerchair.
We hope our sweet furiend unnerstands that we’re only tryin’ to look out fur ‘em when we tell ya’ these things ‘bout a powerchair. Under the right circumstances, they can be a great big help, but they can also be a hinderance ifin you’re x’spectin’ to make adjustments to it off and on when ya’ need to get to counters or up close and purrsonal to furniture and appliances. Anyways, that’s the low down as bestest we can ‘splain it. Of course ifin anypawdy has any questions, we’ll be happy to answer ’em as bestest we can. And, we’ll meow lots more ‘bout our new powerchair startin’ in February with our Service Cat postys. Trust me, ya’ don’t wanna miss those. Mommy says this chair ain’t nuffin’ like the ones she’s had in the past, so there’s likely to be lots of fun and x’citement comin’ your way.
Yep Raena, kind’a like mommy runnin’ off the sidewalk and into the grass yesfurday. Kittens!!! Did you see the look on her face?
I’s think mommy thought she was gonna end up face down in the dirt, sissy. She sure did look funny. Eyes big as saucers and holdin’ on fur dear life. MOL Guess we better wrap it up, mommy needs to call mr. Travis. We hope to be by to visit everypawdy soon. I’s gonna go see ‘bout those races. Surely there’s somewhere we kitties can compete?.
We also wanna ConCatulate our furiends Erin the cat Princess, Gracie of Animal Shelter Volunteer and The Tribe of 5, Feline Opines fur winnin’ the heated pet mats and cat shelf in our recent give away. We can’t wait to hear how much ya’ll luvs your purrizes.
