Chatting Cats: Embarrassing, Scary and Delicious

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We sure do wanna fank you all fur your luv and suppurrt. Mommy says it may have been a year since Lexi left her, but it feels like yesfurday. Most of ya’ unnerstand dat feelin’; and we just want you to know, you’re not alone. Anyways, besides the blues, mommy’s also been feelin’ a little out of sorts and extra achy. At furst she just thought it was cuz of the crazy weather and her teeth purroblems. But she’s had a horse and a frog wagin’ war in her throat lately, and coughin’ too. Now I’s not know how a frog much less a horsey can fit in mommy’s throat, but she sure sounds funny when she talks.

          Raena, don’t make fun of mommy. That’s not nice.

 

Come on sissy, you know she sounds funny. You said so yourself.

 

          That’s different. Me was talkin’ to you in purr-ivate. Me wasn’t tellin’ the world.

 

 Dezi stand on the house on the Liberty Cat tree

 

Oh purrlease, you know we blab everythin’. Anyways, when we went to see mommy’s doctor yesfurday, he wasn’t sure he believed that mommy was sick. He thought she was just havin’ some allergy and sinus issues. So some lady came in and stole some of mommy’s bloods. You know, they didn’t shave her neck or nuffin’. They just stuck somethin’ in her finger and it was all over. Them VETs’ could learn a little somethin’ ’bout blood stealin’. You know, mommy be a redheaded white woman, but when they stuck her, she was a redheaded ghosty. I’s was meowin’ and goin’ crazy pants inside mine’s stroller. Mommy dropped her head ‘tween her knees and Doc came in and asked what all the fuss was ‘bout. He took one look at mommy and ran over and held her in the chair. After a hunnerd few minutes, mommy raised her head, and she was back to bein’ mine’s redheaded white mommy and not mine’s ghosty mommy. ‘Course, I’s had calmed down once Doc came in the room to help mommy, so I’s laid peacefully in the stroller lissenin’ to mommy and Doc talk.

 

Raena lays in the stroller

They chatted ‘bout me and how things have changed fur the worse in medicine, and a little ‘bout pawlitics while waitin’ fur those blood test results. Furinally there was a knock on the door and the blood stealin’ thief appeared and handed Doc a piece of paper. He turned and looked at mommy and said, “How are you still walking around?” Seems mommy’s body be fightin’ the infection and sicks like crazy. So he faxed a script fur another antibiotic over to the furmacy and we all said our goodbyes and see ya’ laters. And with that mommy and me headed out to said furmacy to get mommy’s medicine.

Things were goin’ purretty good till we left the furmacy and got to the car. Mommy just missed the step off the curb and down we went. Yep, she was holdin’ on to the stroller, so I’s tumbled over too. Mommy says she was so embarrassed. There she lay on the pavement, with piddle pads flyin’ everywhere. (we keep a few in the bottom of the stroller, just in case) I’s don’t know ‘bout this embarrassin’, but it sure nuff was scary. Mommy recovered like any good kitty would. She looked ‘round and pulled herself up with the help of the car. Yes, of course she pulled me up too. And then we sashayed over to the car door to load up like nuffin’ ever happened.

 

 Raena lays on top of the Liberty Cat Tree

 

When we got loaded in the car, mommy started cryin’ and ‘pawlogized fur lettin’ me fall. I’s was fine. I’s was just glad mommy was okay too. She’s a little extra bruised up, but all in all, she’s okay. After all that excitement, we headed straight fur home. Without even thinkin’, mommy popped her furst antibiotic dose in her mouth and swallowed it down. Then she went online to look it up. Seems, Cipro is used to treat serious infections; but it has some purretty scary side effects. So, we sure would purreciate any purrayers you can spare.

 

 Dezi checks out the AeroGarden

‘Member these cute little lettuce plants?

 

Now, do ya’ll wanna hear somethin’ cool? Mommy had her furst grown by her own hands salad this week. Yep, she was furinally able to harvest enuff leaves to make a salad. She said it was amazin’. But she also thinks she must be doin’ somethin’ wrong, cuz our garden doesn’t look or yield as much as the ones on the AeroGarden site.

 

 AeroGarden Lettuce Leaves

Check out those salad leaves fresh from the AeroGarden

 

          Yeah Raena, you’re right. But we did tell mommy that fur her furst time, she did a great job. Her lettuce pods have quite a few little baby sprouts that should eventually turn into more salad leaves. She’s been readin’ up and thinks her next growin’ venture should be Romaine. Most of the reviews talk ‘bout how quickly the Romaine grows.

 

I’s can’t wait sissy. I’s a really good helper. I’s tried to help mommy pick leaves fur her salad, but she kept shooin’ me away. I’s don’t know why she didn’t want mine’s help, do you?

 

          Me doesn’t know Raena. Ya’ reckon it could have somethin’ to do with the fact that you tried to eat a few? 

 

Who? Me? I’s was just makin’ sure they were ready, and not poison. You know, like a taste tester.

 

          A taste tester? Yeah right. Whatever. Anyways, let’s wrap this up and go play.

 

 Pet Parade Blog Hop Badge

 

Okay sissy. Furst we need to link up with Rascal, Rocco and their pawsum co-hosts fur the weekly Pet Parade. We’ll be ‘round to visit when we can. Ya’ know, we gotta wait on mommy to help us type. And we hope you all have a furtastic weekend.

Chatting Cats: Do Cats Get Bored

Meow, What a day we had yesfurday. Lots of hugs and cuddles and luvvin’. We did get on the catputer and visit some, but mommy’s purromissed tomorrow will be all ours. Anyways, it rained and stormed all day yesfurday. And kittens!!! It was cold. Where’d that 90 degree weather go mommy?

 

Dezi site with her tail wrapped

          Well honey, it is winter time. Altho’ it’s been a crazy winter weather wise, it is still winter. 

 

 Raena lays in mommy's lap and enjoys some loving

 

     I’s don’t like winter mommy. Who wants to go strollin’ in the wind, cold and rains? 

 

          Not me sweetie. That’s why I tried to make sure we had new batteries for all the electronic toys. You’re so full of energy, I want you to have plenty to do. 

 

 Dezi plays with the frolicat

 

We purreciate that mommy. Cuz even tho’ we’re inside only kitties, we still get bored and feel cooped up in the winter time. We can only ‘magine how our furiends who do go outside are feelin’. You know, we think all kitties belong inside, and only outside with their human on a leash. But we do have furiends that are allowed to go out by themselves. We don’t know what all they do outside, but we do know it gives them a little break in their day. But with all the cold and some even have snow, it’s way too cold fur man or beast out there. During these times, a kitty can get bored and maybe even act out.

 

Ya’ know, Raena’s been bouncin’ off the walls…literally. She don’t wanna go outside, but she’s feelin’ a bit bored. She’s been climbin’ and jumpin’ on everythin’. Even a few “off-limits” areas.

 

 Raena playing with the Pet Safe Flitter

 

     I’s think you be exaggeratin’ a bit sissy. 

 

Really Raena? What do you call it when you jump on the door ledge and give mommy a heart attack? 

 

     Uh Havin’ fun?.

 

Yeah, That’s not what we call fun.

 

Well, I’s thought it was sissy. Did you hear the Fedex lady compurr me to that grumpy cat?

     Raena lays on the floor in the meatloaf position

 

Me did Raena. And me heard mommy tell her you didn’t and that you were anythin’ but grumpy. 

 

 Cat treats and hersheys kisses

 

     Fank the cats. Thinkin’ I’s look like some other kitty. Hmmpht  Altho’ she did bring us a Valentines day gift from Purr, Mr. M and awnty Jeanne. We got a jug of treats and mommy got a bag of chocolate kisses. Mommy said Kitty Kisses are the best, but chocolate’s nice too. Fank ya’ll, we really purreciate the gifts.

 

 Big Texas Cinnamon Rolls

Yep, that’s the dill mommy transferred to a pot ya’

see in the background.

 

Yep, and awnty Vonda sent mommy some green papers fur a whatever spend. Mommy bought herself a couple of those glazed Big Texas Cinnamon rolls. She says they’re so delishus. We never get a bite, so we wouldn’t know. But mommy also bought us a bag of our favorite freeze dried chicky breasts. We sure do fank ya’ awnty Vonda, we had us a “sweet” Valentines day. And mommy put the rest with her dental fund. 

 

 Lettuve growing from Aerogarden

 

     Hey sissy, we oughtta update everypawdy ‘bout da AeroGarden. Looks like mommy’ll be eatin’ salads next week. She “planted” 6 pods of lettuce and 5 are doin’ really well. She’s gotta call the garden peeps ‘bout the one that didn’t sprout, cuz they guarantee ‘em. She did plant us some grass, but the pods are so small, that only a couple blades came up. Looks like it’s back to the dirt fur growin’ us grass. MOL 

 

 Lettuce growing from AeroGarden

 

Yep Raena, and me saw her plantin’ up some last night. We’ll be eatin’ grass ‘bout the same time mommy’s eatin’ salads. Anyways, we wanted to remind everypawdy that whether ya’ have indoor only cats or indoor outdoor kitties, we need some extra playtime durin’ these winter months. We get the blues just like humans do. Shorter days and less sun affects us kitties too. So get out that wand toy, or your kitties’ favorite nip or ‘lectric toy and get ‘em runnin’ and exercisin’. They’ll be happier and so will you. Let’s wrap this up Raena and see ‘bout havin’ one of those play sessions befur O gets here. By the way, lots of ya’ thought it was very nice of O to take mommy on her errands. And it is, but It’s also his job. He’s getting’ paid fur it. Gotta go, the wand toy’s callin’ mes name.

Cats Chat: Garden Mews and More

(Mommy A checks the progress of the new AeroGarden and the lettuce pods she had “planted” earlier. Seeing some sprouts, she took the plastic caps off of a few pods and turned to speak to Dezi and Raena who were closely supervising everything.)

 AeroGarden pods close up

 

          Now girls, I know you both had a good time playing with the last pods we planted. But, this is my lettuce, and I plan to eat all of these when they get big enough. So, leave them alone. You can watch them, and sniff them, but no pullin’ the pods out, and no eating the leaves. Okay?

 

(Dezi and Raena look at mommy, the garden and then each other.

Raena, did you hear what mommy said? She told you to leave the garden alone. 

 

 

 Aerogarden with salad pods

    

     Uh, I’s heard her mention both of us sissy. Besides, I’s never took a bite outta anythin’, that was you.

 

 

Me only took a bite of what mommy said me could. And it wasn’t very tasty, so that doesn’t count. Come on, let’s go play with our toys. It’s so pretty and warm outside, maybe we can talk mommy into a stroll or two.

 

 

 Raena rides in stroller

 

     A stroll? Now that sounds like fun. Is it spring already sissy?

 

Nope. Me knows it looks and feels like it, what with the weather bein’ in the 80’s on Monday, and high 70’s so far this week, but mommy says that means we’re fixin’ to get hit with some really bad, cold weathers.

 

     Well at least we’ve got the new ‘lectric blankey.

 

Yep, we sure are blest.

 

 Raena looks over from atop the Liberty Cat tree

Can I’s help ya’ there O?

 

     Hey sissy, did you see that O came back? Mommy was so relieved. They did some kitchen cleanin’ the other day to get ready fur the inspection today. He pulled everythin’ outta one of the kitchen cabinets so mommy could rearrange some stuffs and make it easier fur her to reach that pawsum food awnty Anonymous and awnty Cindy sent her. While he had everythin’ pulled out I’s got in the cabinet to play. I was havin’ me a good ole time. And ya’ know what? O was so nice. He didn’t get mad at me, he just asked me to get out so he could put stuffs back in. He even used mines name. He didn’t pull that ole here kitty kitty nonsense. 

 

Yep, me heard him Raena. Me’s always wondered what self respectin’ kitty would actualy answer to here kitty kitty. Lessen it’s their name of course. And there ain’t nuffin’ wrong with that, but we’ve been blest with a mommy and names. Me don’t even know what that here kitty kitty means. 

 

 Raena in tiger kitty holster

     I’s don’t either sissy. Ya’ know, mommy’s case worker used to sit here and holler here kitty kitty all the time. I’s don’t know who she thought she was talkin’ too, cuz nopawdy in our house is named that. Then she’d try to pet me and say things like purretty kitty or good kitty. Hmmpht I’s just always walked off. I’s figgered she had me confused with one of her other peeps kitties, cuz mines name is Raena or RaenaBelle.

 

Yeah, me knows Raena. That’s one of the reasons me just takes a nap when she’s here. 

 

Raena in tiger kitty holster cat harness

     Oh sissy, I’s almost furgot. Did you see mines new harness? Awnty Vonda sent mommy some green papers and told her to get me a new harness that would fit cuz I’s outgrew mines furst one. We even got a matchin’ leash. Isn’t it cool? I’s feel like a little tigress in it.

 

 Dezi checks out Raena in her new harness

Hey Raena, you be lookin’ spiffy in your new harness.

Reckon me could try it on somtime?

 

 

Me saw it Raena. It’s made a little on the large side, so mommy says me might even be able to wear it. Me hasn’t tried it on yet, but it is nice. Me really likes the leash too. 

 

 Raena in tiger kitty holster cat harness

 

     Mommy says I’s’ll grow into it. It fits purrfectly ‘round the neck, but is a bit loose ‘round mines body. Mommy says I’s long and tall, but I’s’ll fill out in time just like you. I’s sure do fank you awnty Vonda, fur mines new harness and leash. I’s luvs it. We did have to buy it ourselves, but just in case any of ya’ are lookin’ fur a really well made harness fur your cats, ya’ might wanna check out the Kitty Holster. Unlike most harnesses that be made to fit doggies, these are specifically designed with the feline shape in mind. ‘Course they do have some fur doggies, chickens and rabbits too. They even make diapers, and chastity belts. I’s not know what that last one is, but mommy says most peeps will. 

 

 Raena sits in tiger kitty holster cat harness

 

Let’s wrap it up Raena. We’ve got that inspection comin’ up today and the exterminator’s comin’ too. And O’s s’posed to be here this afternoon, so it’s gonna be a purretty busy day. And then mommy has her regular monthly doctor’s ‘pointment tomorrow. Things sure are hoppin’ ‘round here, and me doesn’t mean you Raena. Fankfully, you’ve not tried to hit your head on the ceilin’ again fur days now. Mommy’s so happy ‘bout that. MOL  We hope you all have a pawsum day.

 

 

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