Chatting Cats: Preparing For Raena’s Surgery

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle!!! Sorry I’s screamin’, but I’s can’t hear mine’s self think over the rumblin’ thunder. But, you’ll be happy to know, sis Dezi be hangin’ with mommy and me. Okay, so maybe she’s pacin’ the floor a bit, but at least she hasn’t made a bee line fur UTB (under the bed). (Raena looks around the room from her perch on the back of mommy’s chair just as a loud, long thunder clap rolls by.) Uh, sissy, where you’d go? C’mon sissy, you know there’s nuffin’ to be ‘fraid of. 

Raena's profile looking curiously atop the cat tree

 

 

Dezi lays on cat tree

 

 

          Me’s not afraid Raena, me just needed to check on somethin’. Me thought me saw a monster head unner the bed.  (Dezi saunters back to the living room)

 

Hmmmpht  Maybe it was the slobber monster. Oh wait, that’s you, you’re the slobber monster. I’s can’t believe you soaked mommy and me with your purr slobbers this meownin’. We were sleepin’ so peacefully when you woke us up slobberin’ all over the place. Yuck!!! 

 

Dezi lays on scratcher and looks back over her shoulder

 

 

 

          Ah, What’s a little luv slobber t’ween sisfurs, right Raena? Besides, mommy needed to get up anyways. 

 

Luvs slobber? That’s what we’re callin’ it now? (Raena shakes her head) Purrlease, I’s would purrfur you keep your slobber to yourself. Anyways…

 

 

Flexible e-collar

 

 

          Whatever. Are you ready fur tomorrow Raena? Me saw your new pink collar that mommy got fur you to wear. 

 

 

Flexible e-collar

 

Yeah, I’s not wearin’ that thing sissy. Anyways, mommy said it was a just in case collar. She said I’s may not even need it. 

 

          True Raena, but that’s only ifin you can keep your paws away from your eyes. We all know You’re not gonna be able to do that.

 

Raena scratcher behind her ear atop the cat tree

 

 

We don’t all know that sissy. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see. As fur bein’ ready, I’s guess I’s as ready as any kitty can be, considerin’. Ya’ know, I’s don’t zactly know what’s gonna happen. All I’s know is that we won’t be gettin’ any sleep cuddles tonight, no late night snacks and we have to be at doctor stabby and grabby’s place by 8:30 in the meownin’. I’s can feel mommy’s tension growin’, but I’s don’t really unnerstand why. 

 

Dezi lays on cat tree looking out door

 

 

 

          Yeah Raena, me can feel it too. Me knows she’s worried cuz you didn’t do so well with the anesthesia durin’ your spay day. Fankfully, we have lots of furiends that’ll be purrayin’ fur you to come thru surgery just fine and have a speedy and full recovery. 

 

Raena lays atop the cat tree looking over-raspberry

 

 

I’s so ‘purreciate all the luvs, suppurrt and purrayers our furiends are sendin’ sissy. They’re the bestest. Hey, ya’ wanna go play? I’s might not feel like playin’ tomorrow. 

 

          Sure Raena, me will play with you today. But, be nice. No jumpin’ on me, okay?    

 

Raena bathes atop the liberty cat tree with her tongue out

 

 

 

Of course sissy, I’s won’t jump on you. (Raena meows while crossing her paws behind her back) By the way, Happy Birthday Dezi, I’s luvs you. Furiends, don’t furget to send us your fotos fur sissy’s Carnival pawrty on November 14th.

Tell All Tuesday: A Cat’s Gotta Scratch #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Kittens we’re getting’ a late start today. With the weather bein’ up and down and all over the place, mommy’s body be screamin’. I’s thought we’d never settle down fur sleep last night.

 

Raena lays atop cat tree with tongue out

 

 

Dezi lays on cat tree

 

 

 

          We didn’t Raena. 5:30 a.m. ain’t night time; it’s the wee, wee hours of the meownin’. Fankfully, we didn’t have to worry ‘bout gettin’ ‘round at any purrticular time so we could get in some cuddle time with mommy. 

 

I’s so luvs cuddlin’ with mommy, don’t you sissy? I’s like cuddlin’ with you too…when you let me. 

 

Dezi stands on cat tree looking out door

 

 

 

          Yeah, well, it’s too hot when we cuddle Raena. T’ween your floof and me’s floof there’s no room fur air. 

 

 

OurPets Cat Scratcher

 

 

 

Whatever sissy. Hey, did you see our new scratcher? I’s luvs to scratch, don’t you? 

 

 

OurPets cat scratcher

 

          Yeah Raena, me does. Me says a kitty can never have too many scratchers. Y, Even a kitty without claws needs a good scratcher. Purrlease, don’t interpret that statement to mean declawing is okay. Never declaw your kitty.

 

Dezi scratches ourpets scratcher while Raena sniffs the back

 

(Dezi and Raena shudder as they think about having their paw knuckles amputated) Oh sissy, I’s can’t even ‘magine what that would be like. Fanky fankfully, we’ll never have to know. And, our new OurPets Alpine Climb Cat Scratcher is the purrfect solution fur all kitties. It actually comes in 2 pieces, so whether you’re a vertical scratcher or a horizontal scratcher, you’ll luvs it. There’s some assembly required, but trust me, ifin mommy can do it, anypawdy can. The name on chewy implies there are different colors, but we received the yellow one just like in the foto. It measures, 18.8” X 8.2” X 10” and can be used laying flat like you see us doin’ it today, or inclined with the bottom attached. It also comes with a bag of catnip and costs $14.39. You can also get it on autoship and save an extra 5%. There are sticky strips that allow the scratcher top to be securely attached to the incline bottom. Let’s see what Chewy says ‘bout it.

Dezi and Raena sniff our pets scratcher

 

 

 

          It didn’t take us long to check it out, did it Raena? We didn’t get the toy Chewy mentions in the description. As soon as mommy put it on the floor me was all over it. Least me was till you came and stuck your floofy paws on it. 

 

Dezi and Raena sniff the ourpets cat scratcher

 

 

I’s wanted to scratch too sissy. Why should you be the only one havin’ any fun? I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s like all kinds of scratchin’, doesn’t really matter to me whether it’s vertical or horizontal, just give me somethin’ to sink mine’s claws into. 

 

Dezi and Raena argue over the ourpets scratcherDezi: Hey, me was here furst!!! (Dezi raises paw and hisses) 

Raena: It’s mine’s turn now, sissy. I’s wanna scratch too.

(We’re posting this foto so you can see we aren’t always purrfect.

Even we have squabbles every now and then)

 

 

          Ya’ know Raena, you mentioned earlier that this pawsum scratcher could be added to an auto ship. And me got to thinkin’, some peeps may wonder why you’d want a scratcher on auto delivery. Me can tell ya’ that we kitties not only like to scratch, but we need to scratch. It’s one of those drives we just can’t ignore. And, a good scratcher is just what you need to make sure kitty doesn’t scratch up your furniture. Most kitties like corrugated cardboard, but they’re not meant to last furever. So, havin’ it on auto ship means kitty will get a fresh new scratcher with each shipment and your couch will stay safe. Me gives the Alpine scratcher 4 paws up. 

 

Raena scratches ourpets cat scratcher

 

 

 

Me too sissy. I’s luvs it, 4 paws from me.. And, when it’s elevated, there’s a small hole that a tiny kitty, one smaller than us, can get into and ambush your fursibs from. MOL  Mommy says the purrice is okay. And as always, Chewy ships all orders $49.00 and up fur furee. With Christmas right ‘round the corner, this would make a pawsum gift. Trust me, any kitty receivin’ this unner their tree is gonna be one happy kitty.

 

Disclaimer: We received the OurPets scratcher in exchange for our honest opinion. As always, we tell it like we see it. We only bring products we use or have tried and feel would be of interest to you, our readers and friends. 

 

          That’s true Raena. Me wouldn’t mind gettin’ a scratcher fur Christmas, or any other time fur that matter. Well, me’s gonna go scratch some more and take a nap. How ‘bout you? 

 

Raena washes her eye

 

 

 

I’s gonna take a little bath furst sissy. And then I’s’ll have a nap. 

 

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

Blest Sunday: Thankful Blessings

MeOW  Me’s been busy with the annual Cat Scout jamboree fur the last week. It’s always great fun, but me’s glad it’s over and things can settle down a bit again. Ifin you’ve ever wanted to be a pawrt of somethin’ bigger than yourself and make lastin’ furiendships with others like you, then you should check it out. Cat Scouts is furee to join. It’s gone thru a lot of changes since me furst joined, but the furiendships me’s made there have only gotten stronger. But, me is happy to be getting’ back to normal now. And what better way, than with Blest Sunday, don’t you agree Raena?

          Yep sissy, I’s glad too. Kittens!!! Dinner was late almost every night. I’s don’t know what ya’ll be doin’ ‘round the campfire, since you won’t let me join, but just cuz ya’ll be havin’ virtual cook outs doesn’t mean mine’s real tummy don’t get hungry.

Purrlease Raena, dinner wasn’t that late. It’s not like you’re starvin’. Have you ever actually missed a meal? Me thinks not. Mommy does everythin’ she can to make sure we have purrlenty to eat. You know there are lots of kitties in the world that don’t have that security. They’d gladly swap places with you.

 

Dezi looks out door while laying on cat tree and Raena lays on tree below

 

 

 

          That’s okay sissy. I’s don’t wanna swap places with any kitty. I’s livin’ the good life, even when dinner’s 10 minutes late. 

 

Meowin’ of the good life Raena, what happened to you last night? 

 

          Wha’d’ya’ mean sissy? 

 

Dezi lays on cat tree

 

 

 

You know, when you were sleepin’ all sound like atop the liberty tree and suddenly jolted and flew off the top of the tree and skedaddled thru the house and unner the table. You scared mommy and me half to death. Did you have a bad dream or somethin’? 

 

Raena bathes atop the cat tree

 

 

 

          Oh sissy, it was just horrible. Ya’ know, that tree’s really high. I’s kind’a wish I’d thought ‘bout it a bit befur launchin’ mine’s self into the air. I’s don’t think we kitties were meant to fly. 

 

Dezi sits pretty

 

 

 

Well, ya’ hit the nail on the head with that one Raena. What was your furst clue, the lack of wings or your crash landin’? Me’s gotta tell ya’, me’s not sure me’s ever seen your eyes look quite that big befur. And me fur sure don’t like hearin’ that much panic in mommy’s voice. She was so worried you’d hurt yourself or somethin’. 

 

          Yeah, I’s didn’t like it too much either sissy. Fanky fankfully, I’s only got a few bruises. Ya’ can’t see ‘em fur the fur, but I’s assure you, they’re there. I’s don’t ever wanna do that again.

 

Me’s sure me’s meowin’ fur mommy too Raena, when me meows, we don’t want you to that again either. Me’s just glad you’re okay. ‘Specially since you’re plannin’ me’s pawrty. You know me’s actual birthday is this comin’ Fursday, right? 

 

Raena bathes atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          I’s know sissy. And mommy’s purromissed to get us some special treats fur that day cuz of your birthday and cuz mine’s surgery has been moved up to that day too. Mommy called doctor stabby and grabby and he agreed to go ahead with mine’s surgery and let us pay what we’ve already raised and pay off the rest as it comes in. We’re so Blest to have such amazin’ furiends. I’s a little scared, but knowin’ so many peeps luvs me sure is comfurtin’.  

 

Yep Raena, me’s heart is so full thinkin’ ‘bout all the furiends we’ve made and how we all luv and suppurrt each other not just durin’ the good times, but also the bad. Ya’ know, a true furiend is the one who doesn’t abandon you when life throws ya’ a curveball.

 

3 cats meowing thank you

 

 

          That’s a great way to put it sissy. I’s wanna say a meowsy big fanky fank you fur helpin’ me have mine’s surgery to awnty Claire, Zorro and Pixie, awnty Theresa, awnty Kerry and Valentine, awnty Susan M, awnty Susan C, and awnty Ava. Ifin you’d like to help, you can donate here. And a huge fanky fank you to all of you fur your purrs and purrayers. I’s would ‘purreciate a few extra come Fursday November 1st. Mommy says we have to be there t’ween 7:30 and 8:15 that meownin’. Looks like we’ll be stayin’ up all night Wednesday and she’ll be havin’ coffee at the V-E-T. Maybe they’ll even have donuts. 

 

Dezi bows her head to pray

 

 

 

Me will be purrayin’ fur ya’ Raena. Even ifin it means me has to miss a meal. You can’t eat anythin’ after midnight, so guess what? That means me won’t get anythin’ either. Hmmmpht  The sacrifices me makes fur you.

 

          I’s do ‘purreciate you fur doin’ that sissy.  

 

Like me has a choice. Those better be really delicious treats ya’ll bring home. Me knows mommy luvs coffee and donuts, but me’s wants somethin’ way better than that. 

 

Raena stands on scratcher with paw lifted
