Chatting Cats: Smarty Pants Phones, Dumb Alarms & Bird TV

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. (Raena looks around. Seeing something flutter by the door she runs to the small perch to look out while meowing) Well sissy, we’ve furinally joined this century and got our very own smarty pants fone. Mommy said since it was gonna cost the same as what she pays fur a dumb fone we might as well get a smart one.

          Was there any ketches Raena? You know humans luv to trick ya’ with things that sound too good to be true.

 

You’re right ‘bout that sissy. Seems there was one ketch, she had to pay some kind’a activation fee. The fone was furee and the service is the same as always, but they did want money to turn the thing on. Now ifin mommy can only learn to use it.

          (Something flutters by the front door catching Dezi and Raena’s attention) What was that? Did you see that Raena? Mommy, there’s somethin’ on that silly alarm outside. (Dezi and Raena chatter wildly until mommy A gets up and looks outside. Seeing a bird’s nest on the alarm box on the wall outside the front door, mommy tells the girls that they were seeing the mommy bird taking care of her babies.) Really mommy? Do ya’ reckon it’s the same birdy from last year? 

 

     I don’t know sweety, maybe.

I’s wanna see the baby birds mommy. Will you hold me up there so I’s can see ‘em? 

 

     No Raena, I don’t think the momma bird would be too happy about that. You don’t want to scare her off so she leaves her babies alone, do you? 

 

No, I’s guess not mommy. Ya’ know, our furiends might be wonderin’ just what kind of alarm box we’ve got out there. Since these ‘pawrtments are fur the disabled and elderly, they put a red light and a really noisy alarm on the wall right by the door. It’s s’posed to be fur emergencies. There’s a string in the bathroom and one in the bedroom that cause the alarm to go off when they’re pulled. The alarm isn’t actually connected to any kind’a emergency help, so all it does is go off, give everypawdy a migraine and start the busy bodies to gossipin’.

 

 Dezi lays on the liberty cat tree looking outside while RAena poses on the small perch in front of door

 

 

 

          Yep Raena, one of the furst Service Cat lessons we learn is not to play with the strings. Mommy says she doesn’t want all the nosy neighbors comin’ in our house. It’s not like any of them could actually help mommy. Befur you were born peeps alarms used to go off all the time. They’d be cleanin’ their pawrtments and pull the chain by accident. Mommy says that’s why they’re not attached to any emergency system. Ifin they were, the pawlice, fire depawrtment and ambulance would be here all the time fur false alarms. 

 

Really sissy? I’s can only ‘member hearin’ one of those alarms since I’s been here. It fur sure was loud and annoyin’. I’s bet it would really scare that poor birdy up there. 

 

 Dezi lays atop the cat tree looking out

 

 

 

          You’re purrobably right Raena. Let’s not find out, okay? Who knows, there might be lots more birdies with nests full of babies that we haven’t seen. We used to have a neighbor who put bird houses all over her patio. Once she moved, those birdies had nowhere to go anymore. Me bets they chose our purrch fur their nests cuz they knew we’re nice and won’t try to hurt ‘em or shoo ‘em off. Me can’t wait till the baby birdies start learnin’ to fly. Me ‘members those birdies from last year made quite a raucous when they left the nest. 

 

You’re right ‘bout that, sissy. Fur such tiny creatures, they sure can make a lot of noise.

 

          And they’re messy too Raena. They don’t seem to care where they poop. Ya’ gotta be careful or they just might poop on you. Dirty little critters. It’s no wonder the Trout Towne Tabbies don’t like birdies.  

 

 Raena lays atop Liberty Cat tree and hangs paw over edge

 

 

 

MOL That’s a good one sissy. All I’s can meow is that no birdy better poop on me. Ifin they try, we’ll be havin’ ‘em fur dinner.

 

          Hmmmpht  Now that’s a good one Raena. Like you could actually ketch a birdy. MOL Me ‘members what you did the furst time you saw a rabbit. Our natural prey and you wanted to play with it. 

 

 Raena looks to the woods from the stroller

 

 

 

Oh sissy, he was so cute. Unfurtunately, he wasn’t the least bit innerested in playin’ with me. I’s never could figure out why? Anyways, we better wrap it up; we’ve got one of those inspections tomorrow, so mommy’s gotta do some cleanin’. Let’s go finish brekky and see how we can help.

Chatting Cats: Be The Change #BtC4A

Raena:  Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Sissy, did you know this month is full of kitty holidays?

 

 Dezi lays in wheelchair looking at camera

 

 

 

          Dezi:   Is this a trick question Raena? Me knows your birthday is comin’ up. You meow ‘bout it all the time. What are we gonna do? Is me plannin’ a pawrty fur ya’? What… 

 

 Raena sleeps while hanging over the edge of the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

No, sissy, that’s not what I’s was meowin’ ‘bout. Altho’, I’s am x’cited ‘bout mine’s birthday and those are all good questions. You do the same thing befur your birthday. I’s ‘member you meowin’ ‘bout your birthday day and night. Anyways, I’s was actually meowin’ ‘bout the quarterly Blog for the Change (4/15), Pet Cat ID week (4/15 – 21), Hairball Awareness Day (4/27), Tabby Cat Day, Animal Cat Advocacy Day and Adopt a Shelter Cat Pet Day (4/30).

 

 

 

 

          Me sees you tried to slip us kitties into all those days Raena. Ya’ know, there’s lots more anipals out there that need help. While we may be partial to kitties, we luv all anipals and don’t wanna see any anipal hurtin’ or bein’ mistreated. 

 

 Raena lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

You’re right sissy. All anipals deserve to be treated with respect, even those we eat. I’s saw on the teevee where some farmers really mistreat the animals in their care. There’s chickens out there purr-actically livin’ on top of each other. And ducks bein’ force fed just so their livers will swell up to make one of those hoity toity dishes (Foie gras) some humans like to eat. And cows livin’ so close together, they can’t even move. I’s just don’t unnerstand it. Sure, we like meat. Actually, as kitty cats, we can’t survive without meat, but that doesn’t mean we want our dinner to be abused or mistreated. 

 

Dezi lays on scratcher with mouth open

 

 

 

          So true Raena. Mommy says there are some good farmers out there, but we wish they could all be good. God meant fur man to take care of the animals He put on this earth. And, He meant fur some animals to be food fur others, but me thinks it makes God really sad when He sees how some of His creations are treated. The laws that govern animals are rarely enforced. But, they’re also not really sufficient fur purrtectin’ animals. Mommy says the law calls us propurrty. Can you ‘magine that? We’re mommy’s propurrty? 

 

 Raena stands on scratcher with paw lifted

 

 

 

Yeah sissy, I’s don’t think mommy sees us that way tho’. Unfurtunately, lots of peeps do. That’s why they don’t take very good care of the animals. Mommy says we live in a disposable world, where peeps no longer take care of their things. Ifin somethin’ breaks, or they get tired of it, they just throw it out and get somethin’ new. It’s cuz of that way of thinkin’ that shelters and rescues are almost always filled to capacity and so many animals die each day.

          So, what can we as a society do to change the way farmers treat the animals in their care you ask? Well, look fur labels that tell you that piece of meat was raised and treated humanely all the way to slaughter. Support laws that call fur humane treatment and slaughter of such animals. Write your local government officials and insist they introduce or support such legislation.

As fur all the anipals in shelters and rescues, consider adoptin’ ‘stead of buyin’. And ‘member, when you adopt that sweet kitty or doggy, they’re yours fur life, not just while they’re cute or convenient. Mommy’s always said, “You can’t take your two legged child back when they misbehave, so you shouldn’t take your furry child back either.” We rely on you fur food, shelter and luvs. In return we offur unconditional luvs and devotion. Purrlease don’t give up on us. Unlike that human child, when we act out, there’s usually a very good reason, offen a medical reason. Purrlease, luvs us and give us the care you’d want given to yourself. You may not be able to Be the Change fur every animal on the planet, but you can Be the Change fur some. Whether, you volunteer, donate, lobby fur law changes, or just be the bestest mommy or daddy to the animals in your care, what you do can make a difference.

          Those are great suggestions Raena. Shelters and rescues are always in need of volunteers and supplies. You can make a difference.

I’s like that idea sissy. We don’t have much, but we always try to help out when we can. We wanna Be a pawrt of the Change in the way animals are treated. C’mon sissy, let’s go see what we can find to donate to those kitties less furtunate than us.

Blest Sunday: Will Raena Get A BlogPaws Birthday Party

Dezi:  MeOW Raena, what are you doin’?

 

Raena lays atop Liberty Cat tree and hangs paw over edge

 

 

 

          Raena:  I’s lookin’ fur all the birdies and squirrels that were here the other day. What happened to all of ‘em, sissy? I’s thought maybe they came to wish me a happy birthday. 

 

Dezi lays in at bed

 

 

 

Well Raena, furst of all your birthday isn’t fur a couple more weeks. Secondly, it turned fureezin’ cold again. The weather guessers even said we might get some snow. Can you believe that? Snow!!! (Dezi shudders) Fankfully they were wrong.

 

          Least so far sissy. Mommy says the colds are s’posed to be here fur a little longer. Seems Spring likes the snooze button as much as us cats. Anyways, meowin’ of mine’s birthday, are you gonna throw me a pawrty? Ya’ know, like with costumes and pawrty favors and all our furiends comin’ over fur a play date? Mommy says I’s gettin’ to be a big girl now, so I’s oughtta have a big girl pawrty, right? 

 

Dezi lays in cat bed with a snarky look

 

 

 

Me thinks mommy may be refurrin’ to your ever x’pandin’ belly Raena, cuz you’re only gonna be 2 years old. In Ragdoll time, you’re still an annoyin’ kitten. 

 

          Sissy, are you bein’ mean to me? I’s gonna tell mommy you’re bein’ mean. 

 

It’s not mean ifin it’s the truth, Raena. Anyways, your birthday just happens to fall on the weekend of BlogPaws. With so many of our furiends bein’ away that weekend, me thought we’d have a small celebration fur your birthday and really whoop it up fur your Gotchaday. Me’s even workin’ on a little surpurrise.

          A surpurrise, sissy? Wha’cha’ plannin? Are we goin’ to BlogPaws? Will mine’s pawrty be there?

 

Ifin me told ya’, it wouldn’t be a surpurrise silly. (Dezi shakes her head and smiles deviously) As fur BlogPaws, mommy says she’s still workin’ on it. Chewy offurred to sponsor us fur some of our trip and awnty Cindy and angel Maggie Meme said they’d sponsor some of it, so mommy’s tryin’ to work it all out. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

 

          But we’d go with mommy, right sissy? I’s mean, mommy wouldn’t actually go off and leave us, right? 

 

Dezi stands on tip of stroller-selfie

 

 

 

‘Course we’d go, Raena. Don’t be silly. When has mommy ever left us behind? She tells us all the time how much she luvs us and how she would never ever leave us. We’re really Blest to have such a pawsum mommy. 

 

          We sure are sissy. I’s know that lots of peeps are talkin’ ‘bout this BlogPaws, but what is it ‘zactly? Is it fun? 

 

Yeah Raena, it’s fun. It’s a confurrence fur all the anipal bloggers and micro-bloggers. It’s a chance to meet furiends in the fur to flesh, and inneract with peeps from all the brands we luv and some we’ve never heard of. To check out all the latest and greatest in cat toys, supplies and furniture. Oh, and to attend learnin’ sessions to make our bloggy better. That last pawrt is fur mommy. Like we need any lessons on how to run our own bloggy. Hmmmpht

          That sure does sound like fun, sissy. What a way to spend mine’s birthday. I’s could meet all our furiends and maybe even go fur a stroll with ‘em. That would really be cool. Ya’ know, we’re always wantin’ to go strollin’ with our furiends, and now we really could. OMC We could show off our new stroller. We gotta get busy and trick it out.

 

One step at a time, grasshopper.

 

          Grasshopper? Who are you meowin’ to, sissy? I’s no grasshopper. I’s don’t even know who grasshopper is? 

 

Dezi lays on scratcher looking cute

 

 

 

Never mind, Raena. Let’s finish brekky and then we can meow ‘bout trickin’ our new Gen7 Jogger out. We are really Blest to have such pawsum oppurrtunities. Ya’ know, in all the years mommy worked, she never had a vacation. Our furst trip to BlogPaws was really the furst time mommy had ever done anythin’ like that. And now we have the chance to go again. What a blessing. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your life. 

 

 Raena lays in mommy's lap getting love

 

 

 

          Don’t furget sissy, we’re also linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. C’mon sissy, let’s make a list of all the things we wanna take. 

 

You go ahead Raena, me’s gonna take a short nap furst.
