Chatting Cats: Pussy Willows And Features

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. A muggy wet RaenaBelle. I’s so tired of these storms!!! I’s wanna see the sunshine again. And go fur strolls. And… 

 

 Dezi hangs over the edge of the liberty tree and looks down at Raena

 

 

 

          Raena, we’re all tired of the storms and ready fur some warmer weather. But, you went and broke the stroller, so there ain’t gonna be any strolls till we can get a new one.

I’s thought mommy was just kitten, sissy. I’s sure didn’t mean to break our stroller. 

 

 

          Me’s sure mommy knows you didn’t do it on purr-puss. After all, me doesn’t think any kitty’s ever luvved strollin’ more than you. Me luvs strolls, but me thinks you could do it all day every day. Besides, we’re just big kitties who need things that can actually hold up unner our weight. 

 

Oh sissy, I’s do luvs a good stroll and spendin’ time with mommy. I’s think mommy could use with a good stroll and some furesh air. She seems so stressed lately.

          Well Raena, all this dental stuff is really gettin’ to her. She thought she was almost finished and then they pop up and tell her, “Oh, by the way, when are you gonna schedule your appointment to have those 2 teeth we talked you into keepin’ fur crowns?” Mommy only kept ‘em cuz they told her those teeth were good and didn’t need any work and would help anchor her bottom denture.

 

Yeah, she was purretty upset on Monday when she got that mews. She told ‘em that ifin she’d been told the teethies were bad in the furst place, she would’a never kept ‘em. So, now she’s gotta figger out how to get ‘em pulled and change that bottom denture from a partial to a full. Seems it just never stops.

 

 Dezi sniffs the catkins sent by awnty Ellen

 

 

 

          So true, Raena. She’ll be addin’ another 4 months fur purropurr healin’ to all this. Mommy said she couldn’t believe that nopawdy ever said anythin’ befur. After all, this thing has been goin’ on fur over a year now. But, there was a ray of sunshine in our Monday. We usually save these blessings fur Sunday’s posty, but it helped to pick up mommy’s spirit so, we wanted to say a meowsy big Fank you to awnty Ellen today.

 

Raena sniffs the Pussy Willow catkins

 

 

 

Oh sissy, when mommy opened the box we got from awnty Ellen on Monday evenin’ she let out a squee like I’s never heard. I’s didn’t get it till you told me how much mommy luvs willow trees. We don’t have any, but willows be one of mommy’s faves, ‘specially the Pussy Willow.

          Of course mommy’s fave would be the Pussy Willow. After all, it’s named after us kitties. Y, Even the blooms are called Catkins.

 

 Raena sniffs the Pussy Willow catkins

 

 

 

I’s don’t think it was named after us kitties, sissy. It doesn’t look anythin’ like a cat. Anyways, when mommy opened the box she saw a big bunch of those wrappin’ bubbles. Mommy luvs pawppin’ those things. But that wasn’t even the good pawrt. When mommy opened those bubbles, she found a whole bunch of Pussy Willow cuttings inside. ‘Course she had a good cry and then called up awnty Ellen to say fanky fank ya’. Then mommy hit google to see ifin she could grow her one of those Pussy Willow trees from the cuttings. She found that they’re s’posed to root easily in water so she put several stems in a jar of water and saved the rest fur decoration. 

 

 Dezi sniffs made with love toy from ellen

 

 

 

          ‘Course, awnty Ellen didn’t furget ‘bout us either. She included a couple of her Made With Luv toys just fur us. Ya’ know what else mommy learned ‘bout the Pussy Willow? She learned that the blooms are one of the furst signalers of spring. Ya’ couldn’t have known awnty Ellen, but gettin’ that box when we did made mommy’s day.

It sure did, sissy. We also had another little blessin’. Our story has been featured on Fear Free Happy Homes. We better wrap it up, mommy’s got another ‘pointment with the dentist today fur a fittin’. Fanky fank you all fur bein’ our furiends. you’re always in our thoughts and purrayers. We’re also sendin’ some extra purrayers to Shoko, awnty Jean and uncle Bill from the Canadian Cats. Our sweet meezer furiend Kali had to go to heaven yesfurday. She will be missed dearly.

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. What a pawsum pawrty we had here over the weekend. Celebratin’ milestones such as Blogoversaries can be so much fun. I’s didn’t google it, so I’s don’t know the real nummers, but hundreds of blogs are started each year, and only a few actually keep goin’. So, a Blogoversary really is a purretty big deal.

Raena: I’s don’t do a lot of hissin’, but, I’s did hiss last week when the sleet hit mine’s stroller. Mommy says I’s was a little scared. I’s meow that I’s was just makin’ sure the sleet knew I’s was the boss.

3. Favorite pizza:  Dezi: Me thought everypawdy would get this one. But me got to thinkin’ ya’ll may actually think we’re kiddin’ and that pepperoni pizza be mommy’s favorite food and not ours.

7. Pet peeve:  Dezi:  Peeps that throw out or return beluvved furry family members when they’re inconvenient. Declawin’ kitties, Irrespawnsible pet owners, peeps that won’t spay or neuter, ‘specially their non pedigreed anipals, and…so many more. (Mommy A waves for Dezi to get down off her soap box and continue answering the questions.)

We really luvs doin’ these, so we hope CK keeps it up. As sissy meowed earlier, several of ya’ played along. Valentine got 3 out of 5 right, awnty Ellen got 2 out of 2, Travis was spot on that our eyes are blue, sweet Annie got 3 of 4 and sweet Katie got 2 of 4. Since we’re all inclusive kitties, and we could never choose one furiend over another, we had mommy make all of you this great badge. Whether you played along or not, you can put it on your sidebar ifin ya’ want, or just take it and know that we think you’re all the bestest furiends in the universe.

          Fanks mommy fur makin’ the pawsum badge fur us. Befur we wrap it up today, we’d like to take a minute to recognize that today is World Spay Day. Spaying your pet isn’t just ‘bout ending unwanted pregnancies that contribute to pet overpopulation. It’s also ‘bout the health of your pets. Spaying your female anipals helps to minimize the risk of mammary cancer, uterine cancer, inappropriate spraying/marking and aids your pets’ overall health. Contrary to old beliefs, spaying doesn’t make your pet lazy or become overweight. Ifin that happens, that’s on the humans. Spayed felines can and will hunt, play and do everything they did befur with the exception of reproducing. So purrlease, spay or neuter your pets. Even we have a low cost spay/neuter clinic, so check with your local shelter fur one in your area.

That’s a pawsum reminder, sissy. Mommy isn’t a fan of altering animals at a really young age, but she’s fur sure all ‘bout alterin’. We’ve both been spayed. It wasn’t mine’s favorite day, but I’s much healthier and happier cuz of it. We’re gonna wrap it up now. See you all soon.
