Welcome To Your New Home

Meowllo everypawdy, me knows you all are ‘xcited and ready to meet me’s new sisfur, but me is a chatty kitty and so you’re gonna have to hear da whole story okay? Okay. As mommy and me told ya’ yesfurday, we found this little kitty from a newspaper ad. Actually, mommy was callin’ ‘bout a whole different set of kitties, but by da time da lady called us back, those kitties was all gone. Mommy thought we had missed out yet again. But da lady gave us another nummer and told mommy to call cuz they had kitties too. Well mommy called and called and furinally 3 days later somepawdy answered. Mommy got all da infurmation and then we purrayed about it. Da next day mommy called them back and said yes. Of course in da meantime me didn’t really have a clue ‘bout what was goin’ on, so it was life as usual fur this little queen. Okay, maybe me’s not so little, but ‘member, sis Lexi made me da queen when she left. Anyways…

A couple weeks later, Hug Your Cat Caturday to be exact, me’s life was turned upside down. Dat’s right, Hug Your Cat Caturday. Me had plans fur mommy dat was gonna last all day long and into da night, but mommy up and left me late in da afternoon. Can you believe it? Me sure couldn’t. Anyhow, somepawdy came by and picked mommy up so she left me to lounge ‘round da cat tree and snooze. Me had da afternoon off. She was gone fur da longest time. Me’s dinner time came and went and no sign of mommy. Me was beginnin’ to wonder ifin she was gonna leave me to starve, but furinally she showed up. She came in all flustered and rushin’ ‘round and sayin’ she had to go up and feed Buddy real quick and get things all set up here fur da baby.

Baby me thought. What baby? Me loudly meowed dat Buddy could wait and me didn’t want any babies here. Me’s heard purrlenty of ya’ ‘round blogville talk ‘bout da sticky fingers and all these babies have and me doesn’t want any pawrt of dat. Mommy set sis Lexi’s travel carrier on da chair and went about getting da play pen set up. Me calls it sis Lexi’s travel carrier cuz it’s what she used to travel in befur we got da stroller. And lots of ya’ saw her sittin’ in it on our trip home from BlogPaws last year. Well here, let me just show ya’.

Didn’t she look happy? Dat’s why me calls it sis Lexi’s travel carrier. Anyways, mommy set it in da chair and set up da play pen and…Hey, mommy, why are you puttin’ litter in dat little box?

     Well honey the baby can’t reach the big boxes.

  Baby? Uh, mommy, sis Lexi’s travel carrier is makin’ noises. What is dat? (Dezi inches over and smells the carrier) YUCK!!!!! Mommy, sis Lexi’s travel carrier smells like pee pee. Did you have a accident or somethin’? Would dat lady not stop and let you go to da human pawdee box?

     No honey I didn’t have an accident. It’ll be fine, I’ll explain it all to you later, okay? I’ve got to go feed Buddy and get you some dinner too.

  Me doesn’t know ‘bout Buddy mommy, but me’s about to starve to death. You know it’s way passed me’s dinnertime and me hasn’t had anythin’ to eat since those treats right befur you left.

 Dezi stands back and sniffs Lexi's travel carrier

     Yes dear I know. Just give me a few more minutes. 

  Uh, mommy da carrier’s getting’ louder. What is dat? (Dezi runs UTB while mommy finishes setting up the playpen, and then she hears mommy yell from down the hall…)

     Alright Sweetie, I’ll be right back, I’m gonna go give Buddy his dinner. (mommy leaves and when she returns in 5 minutes, this is what she saw)

Dezi and RaenaBelle square off

  Uh, mommy, what is dat, and why is it in me’s house? Do you know it yelled da whole time you were gone?  And dat pee pee smell? It’s dat thing mommy. ( Mommy snaps a photo and then fixes the girls dinner. She sets down Dezi’s plate and then one for the baby) 

     Yes Dezi, I know. That’s your new sisfur and helper, and my new Service kitty. I’m sorry she yelled the whole time I was gone, I didn’t think she would. She was quiet and peaceful the whole way home. And I’ll give her a bath after she eats some dinner, okay?. She had a bit of a rough start to life like you did baby. She’s never been outside of a cage and she was surrounded by huge dogs that peed everywhere. My nose and eyes were burnin’ and waterin’ after just a few minutes in that house.

 RaenaBelle travels to her forever home in mommy's lap

  Is dat why her eye is all matted and she’s got a snotty nose?

     Kind of sweetheart. But don’t worry, she’s gonna be fine. She knew she was gonna be okay a few minutes after we left too. She slept most of the way home. Now I know you need a couple of days to adjust, but I expect you to get a grip soon and help me to start training her to be a good kitty okay Dezi? Dezi?

  Hissssssssssssssssss Mommy, tell her to get away from me’s dinner.

  Hey, you, get back. Don’t you know what Hissssss means? 

 RaenaBelle uses a scratcher for the first time

     Dezi, her name isn’t hey you, it’s RaenaBelle Maycee High.

  Oh mommy, you and your names. What are we supposed to call her? Surely you don’t want me to say da whole thing all da time, right?

     No baby, we’re gonna call her Raena.

  Why mommy? Me knows there’s a reason, so why? 

 RaenaBelle sleeps beside her mommy in the chair

     Yes dear there’s a reason. Raena is the shortened form of Raanan which means ‘New Beginnings’. And that’s exactly what she is for us, a new beginning.

 RaenaBelle plays

  Well mommy me’s just not so sure ‘bout all this, but me will give her a chance fur you. And fur all me’s furiends out there wonderin’ zactly how you say her name, it sounds like Ray-nah. Mommy just has to be different. And needless to say we didn’t get a bit of sleep her furst night here and not much da second either. Maybe it wasn’t all her fault, but dat’s a story fur another day. Let me tell ya’ dat girls got a set of lungs on her and she’s a chatty little thing. You think me’s chatty. Hmmpht Me’s got nuthin’ on her. And she’s fearless, and smart and she’s purretty enuff me supposes. Mommy gave her a bath so she don’t stink anymore so there’s dat. She’s got more energy than me’s seen in a while and she doesn’t back down when me threatens her either. Mommy says she’s a lot like me, specially in dat way. And she even tried to give mommy a head massage her second day here.

RaenaBelle pounces on a Jackson Galaxy rubber ball

But mostest ‘purrtantly, she luvs me’s mommy. She wants to be right with mommy everywhere. So maybe she ain’t dat bad after all. She saw da VET on Fursday when me did and she got a clean bill of health. Her eye and nose is somethin’ mommy be watchin’ to make sure it clears up on it’s own as it wasn’t serious enuff fur medicine at this time. She weighs a whole pound and a half and was born on April 21st. She’s a bi-color Ragdoll, but her points aren’t clear enuff to call yet. Mommy says she has flame patch on her ear just like me does. Another story fur another day.

 RaenaBelle bunny kicks a chicken leg

Anyways, there ya’ have it. And this ain’t even half of what happened in da furst week. So me will give ya’ da 411 on how things be goin’ as we go okay? And yes, Raena will be chattin’ it up with ya’ll from time to time so you’ll get to know her too. And we’ll be tellin’ all ‘bout da trainin’ as it happens. Raena’s already finished trainin’ mommy to be crazy about her so, she should do really well when it comes her time to learn. We have no doubts God sent her to us. So whether you believe God did it, or sis Lexi did it, or whatever you choose to believe, we just hope like mommy said yesfurday, dat you all learn to luv her as much as we do. Me’s gotta go now and remind her dat me’s da queen and she’s da princess; and me was here furst.  

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

Adopt A Purrecious Jewel

Well winter has been showin’ her fury. Weez so glad to hear most of our furiends made it fru da latest storm mostly unscathed. We was sure purrayin’ fur da poor ferals specially da ones whose care takers kuldn’t get to them. We purray they were able to find warm shelter and sumfin’ to eat. Member me’s challenge to you at da beginnin’ of da year? You know da one, to help more kitties (at least 1 more) get adopted this year than ya’ helped last year. Fur most of us we don’t actually count how many kitties we share or post ‘bout, so me’s challenge will go wiffout a nummer. But dat’s okay, so long as we share and try to get these anipals in their furever homes and getting’ lots of luv. Dat means it’s time fur us to innerduce you all to another pawsumly adoptable kitty.  

Dezi poses for the camera from the arm of the chair

Meowllo Jewel it’s so very nice to meet you. And your name purrfectly describes your beauty.

Well thank you girls fur sharing me. So many of the kitties at my shelter are getting homes and I sure would like one of my own too.  

Well Jewel dat’s why we share kitties like you. Why don’t you tell everypawdy a little bit ‘bout youself. 

16-01-15-00324Jewel

 Okay Dezi. As you can see from my photo, I’m a domestic shorthaired tabby with white socks and maybe a bit of calico. I’m about 3 – 4 years old and have visited the place of white coats so no babies fur me. And I’ve had all my shots and am in good health. Some nice folks saw me wanderin’ the streets and brought me to the shelter. You know it’s a little stressful bein’ here and I didn’t care much fur bein’ in a huge room full of kitties. It reminded me of the days of havin’ to fight fur my food. So I would really purrfur a home where I can be the queen. I love peeps of all ages, and would turn on my motor fur a little lovin’. I don’t play much here, but once I get sprung from the big house, and settle in somewhere I bet’cha’ I’d really enjoy some nice play time and a cuddle or three. You know us tabby girls really are affectionate.  

Dat’z rite Jewel, we shur are.  I shur hope youz get a grayt home and soon. 

Fanks sissy and fank you Jewel. We boff hope you get a furever home soon. Jewel be at da Pauls Valley Oklahoma Animal Shelter and can be adopted fur a measly $50.00. You can find out more about Jewel and all da other pawsum adoptable pets there by callin’ 405-238-1303. Purrlease share Jewel and let’s get this girl her own happily furever after.

Furbulous Furiday with Pudder

It’s another Furbulous Furiday and weez gunna be sharin’ another pawsumly adoptable kitty wiff ya’ today. It’s also Blog The Change day here in da Blogosphere. As wiff most of these things we see, mommy gets so busy makin’ notes to member we furget to grab da badge. But dat’s okay, we can still tell ya’ ‘bout it. Member meez challenge to you in meez New Year posty? Well weez been tryin’ to do dat ourselves this year by shariin’ kitties located in da Pauls Valley Oklahoma Animal Shelter. And of course we share all our furiends post wiff adoptable anipals. We have noticed more of our postys bein’ shared and we wanna fank you all from da bottom of our furry and human hearts. Now, let’s see who be visitin’ us today.

Dezi poses for the camera from the arm of the chair

Well meowllo there Pudder. You sure are a beauty. Can you tell everypawdy a little about yourself? 

Pudder from the Pauls Valley Animal Shelter in Oklahoma

Pudder: Y thank you girls for featuring me. And thank you for the compliment. I’m a polite adult girl here at the Pauls Valley Animal Shelter in Oklahoma. The shelter peeps say I’m about 5 years old give or take. I’ve had all my shots and the white coat folks say I can’t have any babies, which is good, cuz there’s so many kitties needing homes without adding to that number. I’m a dilute Tortie with long silky furs. A little brushing goes a long way to keeping the mats out of my furs, and I love it. It’s a great time to bond with my human. I get along well with kitties, doggies and kids of all ages. I’m calm and submissive but don’t want to be bullied. I had a home once with a human who loved me very much; she even took me to the groomers. But because of something called money problems I ended up here. I don’t understand what happened or why my human gave me away, because I’m very sweet and have a lot of love to give. I’m ready to start over with a new purrson. Do you girls think there’s someone out there that wants to take me home and spoil me and love me forever? 

 

Yes Pudder we sure do. Thanks for stoppin’ by today. Sissy and me will be purrayin’ yous furever home comes soon. Pudder can be adopted fur a measly $50.00 to da right inside only home. You can find out more about her by callin’ da shelter at 405-238-1303. You know we can’t save them all, but ifin we can change da life fur one shelter kitty, we did good. Maybe you can’t adopt Pudder or any other anipal, but you can still be da change fur shelter anipals in your area. Volunteer, or check wiff your local shelter and/or rescue, they are always in need of supplies. Again me challenges you to be da change fur a shelter anipal today and everyday throughout this year. And fank you fur sharin’ Pudder and helpin’ to spread da word on this Furbulous Furiday. As we do every Furiday, weez joinin’ Rascal and Rocco fur da Pet Parade.

The peeps here at the shelter sed I can only be adopted to an inside only home. I’m sure happy about that. You know it gets cold outside and there’s lots of dangerous things in the dark. The shelter peeps are nice but I sure would like to have a home of my own with my own human to love.
