Chatting Cats: What’s In A Name #FelineFriday

MeOW  Hey Raena, have you been workin’ on any new plans? Like maybe some business we could start, or some way fur us to get more treats? You know our furiends seem to get a lot of treats. We even got asked the other day how we could survive without treats.  

 

Dezi sits atop the Liberty Cat tree while Raena lays on the top ledge looking out the door

 

 

 

 

          Really sissy? Did you tell ‘em that we never got many treats, so we never developed a taste fur ‘em? We fur sure don’t like those temptation things that they make those stupid commercials ‘bout. I’s just hate that one with the guy sittin’ on the upstairs balcony throwin’ one at a time out fur some poor kitty havin’ to jump up from the ground to ketch it. Hmmmmpht Ain’t no piece of kibble that tasty.

Raena eats treats while on the liberty cat treeRaena eats freeze dried chicken treats

 

 

 

Yeah Raena, me’s with you on that one. But that ain’t the only silly commercial. Me doesn’t know what you see in watchin’ so much tv?  

 

 

 

          Oh sissy, there’s just so much to learn. Did you know our furiend Marigold was from the hood? Word is she could teach us a thing or two ‘bout ketchin’ those hood rats you were meowin’ ‘bout the other day. 

  

 

 

Dezi lays on the arm of the chair

 

 

 

 

RaenaBelle, me doesn’t know how else me can meow it. Me wasn’t meowin’ ‘bout actual rats. Ifin me had been, you would’a needed to put on your runnin’ shoes. Me’s heard rats can get really big; and fur a Ragdoll, you’re kind’a small.   

 

Raena watches the lions eat their kill

 

 

 

          I’s not small sissy. I’s a long and lean mean kitty Queen.   

 

Kitty queen huh? Me thought mommy x’plained to you that even tho’ you might be the Alpha cat in our house. you’re not the Queen, me is.   

 

          No sissy, mommy said I’s the Queen and you’re the Em-purress. By the way, what’s an Empress?  

 

She did, did she? (Dezi contemplates the hierarchy of royalty and smiles.)  Well then, me’s the Em-puress of this here ‘pawrtment.  

 

          (Raena leans over and whispers to Dezi)  Ranch sissy, I’s think it sounds better. 

 

Dezi looks full on at the camera while sitting ion the stroller outsideDoes this look like a ranch to you?

 

 

 

 

What? We don’t live on a ranch Raena. Wherever did you come up with that one? And what difference does it make what we call it? 

 

          Well sissy, I’s know we’re from the South. And that we’re real live Southern Belles, you know like Scarlet? But, I’s thought peeps might think we’re purrejudice or somethin’ ifin we called our place a Plantation. And, since mommy worked on a couple of horse and cattle ranches when she lived in Georgia, and we luvs horses, I’s thought a ranch was the next bestest thing.  

 

Dezi lays on the arm of the chair, selfie

 

 

 

(Dezi shakes her head while furrowing her brow.) Only you Raena, only you. Sometimes me just can’t follow your logic. Me’s not even sure you are logical.

 

Raena sleeps tummy up in mommy's lapI’s have lots of great big dreams. See me smile?

 

 

 

 

          I’s don’t have a clue what you’re meowin’ ‘bout sissy, but mommy says there’s nuffin’ wrong with me wantin’ to call our ‘pawrtment a ranch. Mommy says to dream big and believe and that’s x’actly what I’s doin’. Who knows, maybe one day we’ll wake up and be on our very own fur real ranch. 

 

Sure Raena, whatever you meow. (Dezi thinks to herself about prowling the halls of a real ranch and waking to the crow of a rooster.) That would be kind’a nice. Anyways, are you goin’ with mommy to her doctor’s ‘pointment today?  

 

Close up of Raena's white eye post surgeryCheck out mine’s “white” eye 29 days post surgery. Doesn’t it look

pawsum? No red or inflamation or gunky oil or anythin’. Just clear blue.

Mommy cut out mine’s other eye but it looks just as good.

 

 

 

 

          That’s the plan sissy. I’s gonna have to go get ready here purretty soon. Furst tho’, let’s link up with Comedy Plus fur Feline Furiday

 

Dezi lays on scratcher yawning

 

 

 

Well Raena, while ya’ll are gone me’s just gonna be enjoyin’ a little nap on the scratcher here. Mr. Sunshine’s here and there’s no sight of old man Winter anywhere. At least not today. 

 

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

Chatting Cats: Chats Around The Tracks

Hey, Yo, it’s me, RaenaBelle. Comin’ to you live from the ranch, better known as our ‘pawrtment. Yep, I’s live and in the fur bringin’ you blow by blow accounts of life in the slow lane. 

 

Dezi lays on liberty tree and Raena on the small perch looking at each other in front of the door.

 

 

 

          RaenaBelle Mayce, what in the world are you meowin’ ‘bout? And why are you meowin’ like some hood rat? 

 

Raena lays atop the Liberty cat tree looking down at Dezi laying on the edge of the tree

 

 

 

Hood rat?! What’s a hood rat sissy? Do we have any ‘round here? I’s bet’ch’a our furiend Erin would luvs to have a bite of one of those. Let me just look thru our address book and find her nummer. We’ll set out the pawtal so she can get here in a jiffy. I’s bet she could teach us a thing or two ‘bout ketchin’ those things. She may be a princess now, but she hasn’t always lived the pampurred life.  

 

          (Dezi shakes her head) RaenaBelle…It’s nice that you wanna share, but hood rat is just an expression. We don’t actually have any rats ‘round here of any kind. Y, Me’s never actually seen a real live mouse. Less ya’ wanna count the one me saw at BlogPaws that time. But me doesn’t think that one counts since he was somepawdy’s pet. You know, you can’t eat somepawdy’s pet, that’s just not nice. 

 

Kind’a like Speedy, our bestest bunny furiend. Huh sissy?. 

 

Dezi and Raena sitting on the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          Uh, yeah, kind’a like that Raena. We don’t really think ‘bout Speedy bein’ a rabbit like the ones we like to see on our dinner plates. Speedy’s just Speedy, ya’ know?. It’s kind’a like all our woofy furiends. They’re nuffin’ like those annoyin’ woofies ‘round here and at the V-E-T’s office. Anyways, ya’ got me off track here. Me was askin’ why you were meowin’ things like Yo, and what blow by blows are you relatin’? Nopawdy’s fightin’ here. 

 

Of course not sissy. Why would anypawdy be fightin’? 

 

          Alright Raena, me’s not goin’ down this rabbit hole with you again. Me…

Rabbit hole? When did you get to go outside? Where’s the rabbit hole sissy? I’s wanna see it. That’s not fair that you got to go outside and I’s didn’t. I’s take care of mommy just as much as you do. Ifin anypawdy ought to get to go outside, it’s me. I’s haven’t really and truly seen all the marvels that make up nature on account on mine’s eyes bein’ bad. Now that I’s can see clearly, I’s need to go and check out the world ‘round us. (Raena puts on her pouty face)

 

          Raena, there is no rabbit hole. Well, there purrobably is, but me hasn’t seen it. Nopawdy’s been outside, not even mommy. Seriously now, where’d you get the word Yo? 

 

Raena watches and talks to a lion on tv

 

 

 

TV of course. Now sissy, ifin nopawdy’s been outside, then why are you meowin’ ‘bout rabbit holes and stuffs? 

 

          With as much tv as you watch Raena, you should be more than a little furmiliar with silly human sayings, like down the rabbit hole. 

 

I’s not ever heard it sissy. Maybe the tv peeps bleep those things out. Y, Last night while mommy was makin’ our dinner, I’s changed the channel by mistake and this whole show was bleep bleep bleep. I’s don’t know why somepawdy would wanna watch somethin’ that doesn’t even have words. Quite furankly, those bleeps are a bit annoyin’. 

 

Dezi sits pretty atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          Oh Raena, you still have so much to learn. Once upon a time, no movies had words.

 

No Way, sissy? Really??? 

 

          Sure ‘nuff Raena. ‘Course, that was long befur me’s time.  

 

Raena lays on the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

MeOW  I’s can’t even ‘magine. Anyways, guess that’s all the time I’s have fur today’s blow by blows. We’ve got things to do and peeps to see…or is it places to go and…ah who cares. RaenaBelle signin’ off from the ranch, I’s think it sounds better than the old ‘pawrtment, k? Fanky fank you all fur your patience with us. We’re slowly but surely gettin’ ‘round to visit all of you. 

 

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

Tell All Tuesday: Who’s Eating What #ChewyInfluencer

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. Can you believe it? It’s almost Christmas!!! I’s just can’t wait. In t’ween tryin’ to ketch up on our visits, take care of mommy and nap, we’ve been shoppin’ hard fur the bestest gifts to put on our big Gift Guide next week. And yes, we’ve got ideas fur the whole family, men included…and no, they’re not ties, socks or underwear. Mommy said I’s needed to meow that so you all won’t worry. Ya’ know, cuz what could a house of girly’s know ’bout gifts fur men, right?. Sissy? Are ties, socks and underwear not good gifts? 

 

Dezi sits on scratcher watching Raena play in chewy box

 

 

 

          No Raena, there’s nuffin’ wrong with those things as gifts, but they’re not very creative. It’s like the gift one gives when they don’t know what else to think of. 

 

Hmmmmpht  Well, I’s can tell ya’ after seein’ some of the holes in mommy’s socks and drawers, I’s know she was thrilled with the new socklets awnty Cindy just sent her. Anyways, we didn’t pick any fur the menfolk. You’ll just have to stop by and check out the guide. We think we’ve got some pawsum picks that just ‘bout anypawdy would be happy to receive. 

 

          Me totally agrees Raena. But, that’s next week; today we need to tell everypawdy ‘bout this new food we tried the other day. 

 

We did sissy? I’s don’t ‘member tryin’ it, did you? 

 

Dezi and Raena eat out of their new dishes

 

 

 

          Uh, well, why don’t we get to that pawrt after we tell everypawdy ‘bout the basics. Like, mommy would purrfur that we could eat a variety of things, at least every once in a while. You know, ya’ just never know what might happen in the future, so it’s always good fur us kitties to have at least a couple of options so we don’t have to go hungry. As most of ya’ know, we eat freeze dried raw. 

 

Mommy would purrfur we eat all raw sissy.  

 

          That’s true Raena. But, mommy is happy enuff that we eat freeze dried raw, so she doesn’t push us…least not yet. Anyways, she would like to find a couple of quality canned foods that we could eat just in case. 

 

In case of what sissy? 

 

Miko poultry variety pack cat food

The ingredient list doesn’t look too bad. The variety pack, 12) 3 oz. cans comes in poultry and tuna or seafood and chicken for $14.99. You can also buy them in single flavor packs for the same price. As you can see from our fotos, the contents of the can look like shredded or pulled meat in water/oil. There’s purrlenty of juice in the cans. Mommy says the juice contains some oil based on it’s appearance. She also said that the longer it was on the plate, it appeared to oxidize. Three hours after opening the can and putting it out, the liquid had the appearance of dirty dishwater. I’s sniffed it from afar, but wouldn’t go near it. Furthermore, I’s wouldn’t touch mine’s regular food either till it was removed from mine’s mat. 

 

Dezi and Raena check out the Miko cat food

 

 

 

          As you can see by me’s foto, me did check it out and then me looked over at Raena’s pawtion, just to see ifin hers might have looked better or somethin’. Me sniffed it a few times and then ate me’s regular dinner. It smelled kind’a funny. Me would have normally at least lapped up the juice, but this one just wasn’t fur me. 

 

 

Raena looks at dinner and Miko cat food Uh, you need to move that stuffs so I’s can eat mine’s dinner now.

 

 

 

 

Me either sissy. And the fish formula’s have the bad vit. K ingredient, Menadione Sodium Bisulfate Complex. Since we don’t eat fish, this wasn’t a very big concern fur us, but should be fur the fish eaters. While this food doesn’t make the cut in our house, Chewy has purrlenty of things that do, and at great prices. They have pawsum customer service peeps and free speedy shipping on all orders of $49.00 and more. There’s a low flat rate shipping charge for all other orders. And they have products for the whole family.

 

 

Dezi peeks out from a chewy box

 

 

 

          Don’t furget some of the greatest boxes ever. While you’re there, check out the holiday shop. Ya’ just might find a gift or two to put unner the Christmas tree.
