Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle.
What are you caterwaulin’ ‘bout now, Raena?
I’s not caterwaulin’ sissy. As a matter of fact, I’s asked mommy what caterwaulin’ is and she says, I’s never caterwaul.
Yeah, well, mommy luvs you. And she luvs it when we meow to her, so that’s why she said that. Trust me, you caterwaul.
Hey, sissy? Nellie asked me ifin I was gonna be a minx like her, when I’s grow up. What’s a minx?
Uh, well, Uh, You’re too young to be learnin’ ‘bout those things. You just keep havin’ fun on your little play dates and don’t worry ‘bout what you’ll be when ya’ grow up.
But sissy, It’s mine’s furst birthday month. Aren’t I’s grown up?
Trust me Raena, you ain’t no where near grown up. There’s purrlenty of time befur you have to make those kinds of decisions. As a matter of fact, me invited Alberto and Oliver of the Feline Opines over fur a play date next week when mommy has to go back to the dental surgeon fur her check up. Maybe we could just have a pawrty?
A pawrty? Like mine’s birthday pawrty?
Not your birthday pawrty, Raena. Mommy wants to be here fur that. But maybe like a purree birthday pawrty. We could invite Shoko and Kali, Snoops and Kommando Kitty, Kosmo, Phenny, and you could ask Simon, and maybe Teddy would like to come. And some of me’s cat scout furiends might wanna come too? And maybe…
We fur sure gotta invite Nellie, sissy. (Raena meows under her breath) I’s gotta find out ‘bout this minx thing.
Of course we’ll invite our dear furiend Nellie. Hmmmmm This is startin’ to look like a birthday pawrty. Maybe we just stick with Alberto and Oliver next week and well get invites out to everypawdy to come over fur your birthday pawrty on Furiday April 21st.
Oh sissy, that would be Pawsum!!! I’s can’t hardly wait. Ya’ reckon everypawdy will come?
Sure they will Raena. (Dezi crosses her paws behind her back and meows under her breath) And ifin they don’t, we’ll still have a good time.
Oh sissy, you’re the bestest sissy in the universe. (Raena tries to hug Dezi)
Yeah, yeah, okay kit, that’s enuff. Get off me now.
Fanky fank you sissy. I’s also wanted to announce the winner of our LumaSoothe give away. Ya’ know it was mine’s furst ever give away, and it was so much fun. I’s wanna do that again. Anyways, the winner is awnty Vicky Denison of the Eastside Cats. We see some happy, purrin’ cats in the very near future.
That’s great Raena. Me luvs give aways too. We should also tell everypawdy that the pawsum peeps over at LumaSoothe are still offurin’ $20.00 off the purchase of the LumaSoothe thru April 22, 2017. Just click the foto below and enter coupon code: dezizworld to save.
They were really great peeps to work with sissy. And we should tell everypawdy, to stay tuned. We have another pawsum give away comin’ very soon. (Raena looks around and sees mommy getting dressed) I’s gotta go get ready. Mommy has her regular monthly doctors ‘pointment today, so we’ll be ‘round to visit everypawdy just as soon as we can. We’re also linkin’ up with the Pet Parade.
What makes you think you’re goin’, Raena? Me just got a new harness too.

Meowllo everypawdy and welcome Furiday. Me knows we’re all happy it’s finally Furiday, right?. Well, it’s also blooper Furiday. Me purrticipated in this once and then me always furgets. Did you know dat fur somethin’ to become a habit you must repeat da action daily fur 3 weeks. Yep sure ‘nuff. 3 weeks and you’re set. Well dat’s what they say anyhow. Anyways, me’s getting’ off track.
This week at Cat Scouts, we had da task of earnin’ a new badge. So me went fur da Olympic Long Jump Badge. Yep, dat sounded like a pawsum badge and one me didn’t have. So me’s all set to go and of course dat meant mommy was in charge of da camera. Well you all know how dat went. Mommys camera skills leave a lot to be desired. MOL You know mommy was late to da digital pawrty. She still had a 35mm camera when we started out on facebook. And then she bought a little $20.00 digital job dat took horrific fotos and broke really fast. So these here digital cameras are way above mommy’s understandin’. MOL You all think me’s getting’ off track again don’t ya’? Surprise, me’s not. Me was tellin’ ‘bout mommy’s experience to ‘splain what happened with me’s blooper foto.
See in da olden days you had to pay fur film to put in dat camera and then ya’ had to pay to get da foto off dat camera. So most fotos were posed. Ya’ didn’t just snap, snap, snap away. And there was no delete or takin’ it back. You paid fur all da fotos, even da bad ones. Anyways, mommy’s still not very good at ketchin’ da action as you can see in me’s long jump foto below. But she tries.
Me also has da names of da winners fur me’s Catit give away. Fank you all fur enterin’ and ConCats to: Pete Hartley, Mary Marchman, and Shoko and Kali of Canadian Cats. Me will be sendin’ ya’ll emails later. Don’t furget ifin ya’ live in New York, you don’t wanna miss out on da Catit Playground event this weekend.

Well here we are half way thru another week. Lots of ya’ member our excitement last year when we were able to go to BlogPaws in Nashville fur da very furst time. Kittens, did we ever have a good time. It was a whirlwind and over way too soon, but we learned so much and met so many pawsum bloggers and company reps. Me had never been on any long trips like dat, but it was really fun. Sis Lexi luvved it. She luvs to travel and go on adventures wiff mommy. Now you may be askin’ your self just why me’s talkin’ ‘bout this, right? Well it’s cuz BlogPaws Arizona is comin’ up real fast and we wuld luv, luv, luv to go. But as most of ya’ also know we don’t have da green papers fur things like dat. But BlogPaws runs a contest every year called #BlogPawsorBust to give 3 bloggers da oppurtunity to win a trip to da pawsum conference.
Now mommy has been tryin’ to find us a sponsor among da companies whose purroducts we use. Part of dat purrocess is bein’ turned down, and we know a lot ‘bout rejection dat’s fur sure. So over da holidays mommy opened us up a Zazzle store. We had big hopes of makin’ da greenies, paper not treats; fur BlogPaws and even to pay da VET and buy noms. But alas, we haven’t even made enuff yet to buy a bag of treats. MOL Course there’s a minimum you have to make afur they’ll even pay ya’ what yous made and we’s got a long way to go yet.
Wiff our Blogoversary comin’ up it seemed da purrfect time to post ‘bout BlogPaws. A lot of ya’ noticed sum of da changes we made to our bloggy after returnin’ home from BlogPaws last year. And a lot of pawsitive things happened fur us. We’s been honored to work wiff quite a few different pet companies to bring products and give aways to you all. So we can only magine more pawsumness ifin we kuld go to BlogPaws again this year. Fur those of ya’ not furmiliar wiff what a BlogPaws conference entails let me just give ya’ sum highlights. There are gweat classes to teach ya’ ’bout bein’ a better blogger, takin’ better fotos, appealin’ to da brands and even how to make money. Guess mommy fell alseep in dat class. MOL You also get da chance to meet wiff reps from sum gweat pet brands. Member our review/give aways from last year? You know da Pet Safe toys, Pagoda fountain, SmartCat litter and more. And maybe da bestest part of it all is meetin’ up wiff your furiends in purrson.
So dat brings me to da contest. There’s gunna be 3 winners over all and 3 prizes.
1st prize: A trip fur 1 includin’ airfare, 4 nights at da host hotel and conference registration. (WooHoo)
2nd prize: 4 nights at da host hotel and conference registration.
3rd prize: 1 Blogger conference registration.
Fur sure we wanna win dat Grand Prize. To enter we have to submit a captioned foto wiff mommy and us at BlogPaws 2016 usin’ 1 of da 4 foto templates they purrvided. (Da fotos you’ve been lookin’ at) Here’s our purrdicament. Mommy can’t decide which one to submit. She had it narrowed down last night, but still kuldn’t decide on just one. You know her captionin’ and foto editin’ be lackin’, so she isn’t sure we have a winner yet. So me told her we shuld ask all of you to help us decide.
You know we can’t wait to sit around in da #Phoenix Courtyard sippin’ lemonade and lookin’ out at da #Mountains and deserts. Da sky seems so blue and da #Clouds so soft and pillowy we kuld just stay outdoors fur hours. We luv horses and kuld spend a leisurely afternoon watchin’ da #Horses drinkin’ from da #Water troughs and listenin’ to da wind blowin’ fru da leaves on da #Trees. We might even be able to find a good tree fur climbin’. MOL Or maybe we kuld go ridin’ on one of those #Horses. Mommy luvs da desert and #Cactus, she grew up out West. #Cactus be so amazin’ how they can live in such hot and dry conditions by holdin’ in their water supply. Mommy sez their purrickly thorns are their way of of stayin’ safe. Not many animals includin’ humans can handle a #Cactus without getting’ stuck.
Tell us which foto you like bestest and a caption ifin ya’ think you have one dat wuld be better. (We know sum of ya’ are gweat at captionin’ and memes are not mommy’s thing) We sure do purreciate you all helpin’ us out.
And we have a winner fur da Morris’ Happy Kitty Kit. Ingrid Rickmar better known as Pipo and Minko of We Bees Siamese.
Till da next time………………………………………..Be Blest!!!

Welkum to Wednesday wiff Chewy. As part of da Chewy.com bloggin’ team we get to review sum really great products. Mommy almost always asks us what we wuld like to try and chooses da products based on dat. But this month she decided we needed to try a new litter. Weez been tryin’ a few different ones but so far nuffin’ has stood up to our regular litter, so mommy had high hopes fur this one.
As those of you who have read meez blog fur a while know me can be a little OCD ‘bout da pawdee box. Fur those of ya’ dat be new, let me ‘splain. We have more than 1 pawdee box of course. But me dusn’t care. Da minute sissy or me uses a pawdee box me wants it cleaned right then. Not in a minute, but right dat instant. Me will stand right outside da pawdee box room and meweek at da top of me lungs at mommy till she comes and cleans it out. Noooo, me dusn’t care what she’s doin’. Nuffin’s more purrtant than a clean pawdee box. Me might
want need to use it. MOL
So this month we had da oppurrtunity to try Simple Solution 30 day Super Absorbent Litter. Da box says right on da front, “Never Scoop Urine Again.” It claims to be light weight, and it is. 3 times more absorbent, weez’ll get to dat. And have exclusive odor absorbin’ technology. So, it’s fur sure lightweight, and it’s pink. Now me dusn’t mean a little pastel off white color, me means bright girly girl pink. See…
Now let’s look at litter from a cat’s purrspective. We want sumfin’ we can walk on without hurtin’ our pawsies dat dusn’t smell like a french wh___ house purrfumery. Yep me sed it. Ask your kitties, they’ll tell ya’ me be tellin’ da truth. We want sumfin’ dat will kill da odor and dat dusn’t stick to our furs. And we wuld really purreciate not havin’ our noses filled wiff dust da minute we go to cover up our business. And me can tell ya’ we wuld all like sumfin’ dat didn’t stick to our paws either, but alas…
So how did da Simple Solution stack up? Well me took a sniff and didn’t have an asthma attack or need oxygen and neither did mommy, so we thought it was great in da smell department. No overwhelmin’ purrfumes. Sis Lexi was da furst to jump right in and take a seat, so we wuld say da grains must not be too hard. Altho’ we still haven’t figgered out why she wuld wanna sit in it. It’s made of pure Attapulgite, a lightweight mineral with a 3 dimensional crystal structure.
As fur da nose fillin’ dust…well mommy had to blow her nose, take a shower and change her black shirt after fillin’ da pawdee box wiff it cuz da pink dust got everywhere. And when me came into da pawdee box room to help mommy wiff her shower, me started sneezin’ like sneezy da dwarf.
It didn’t track all over da place after sissy jumped out of it, but she also didn’t actually do anyfin’ in it. As a matter of fact, neither of us wuld use it at all. Me looked at it a few times and sniffed at it ‘bout once a week, but me never put meez delicate little paws on dat pink dusty stuff. And after da one sittin’ adventure sis Lexi never went near it again. MOL So we honestly don’t have a clue ifin it hides da odors or ifin mommy wulda been able to get by wiffout scoopin’ cuz we wasn’t havin’ any of dat.
Mommy says she’s surprised we didn’t at least try it cuz weez purretty good ‘bout tryin’ new things. But she’s also not upset, cuz she dusn’t think all dat dust wulda been too good fur us. So all in all sis Lexi and me gotta give it all paws down. Mommy said she wuld give it 1 fumm up just cuz it’s natural and lightweight. And our regular stuff nearly breaks her back. Thank catness fur rollin’ trolleys cuz it dusn’t look like weez’ll be changin’ litter any time soon.
But hey, Chewy has lots of pawsum stuff fur all da furries in your life. So check ‘em out. They offer flat rate shippin’ thru Fed Ex and free shippin’ on orders of $49.00 or more every day of da week. Their Customer Service can’t be beat, and they’re available 24/7 365 days a year. Yep, even on Christmas. We know too, cuz we called ‘em afur. You know, mommy likes to make sure you do what you say ya’ do. MOL And then there’s da auto ship program dat makes sure you never run out of what ya’ need. You can always make adjustments to or cancel your auto ship any time.
Disclaimer: We received da 8 lb. box of Simple Solution 30 day litter in exchange fur our honest opinion. Obviously we were not swayed and neither Chewy or Simple Solution are respawnsible fur da content of this post. We only bring you products we use or have tried ourselves and think wuld be of interest to you our readers and furiends.
Now, me also wants to announce da winners of our Pumpkin’ Patch Up give away. Laila and Minchie and meez sweet handsum mancat Andy and hims sisfurs won a case of their very own. Fank you to all who entered. And stay tuned me has another pawsum give away comin’ up soon.

It’s just what happens; it’s pawrt of life. Anyways mommy set me up wiff twitter when we stawrted da bloggy but we was never very active cuz mommy dusn’t unnewstand all those hashtags and taggin’. Now ifin yous a member of BlogPaws you know they have these “chats” offen to innerduce us to bwands and stuffs. Well let me tell ya’, our furst chat…it was pitiful. It was over afur mommy even figgered out where to go. And she didn’t know she was posed to be clickin’ on da bar dat sed new tweets. And there was windows openin’ off to da side of da feed and then disappearin’ afur mommy kuld even figger out they was talkin’ to us. MOL Well after dat mommy almost gave up on twitter. She pawlogized to me and sissy fur bein’ so not a techy and able to keep up. We luv our mommy and she didn’t need to pawlogize to us. It’s okay. Weez sure there awe udders out there just like us.
We didn’t attend anymore “chats” fur a while. Sumtimes it was cuz we was busy wiff udder fings, but mostly it was cuz mommy didn’t wanna get all flustered. Well after goin’ to BlogPaws we stawrted twyin’ to purrticipate in da twitter chats again. Afur yous ask, No, mommy didn’t get any more techy and still didn’t unnewstand those hashtags and stuffs; but mommy’s not a quitter and she will twy hers hawrdest to figger fings out. Did fings get any better yous ask? Not weally. Mommy still didn’t know what she was duin’, but we was there and twyin’. Dat’s what counted. Let me tell ya’ sumfin’ ‘bout this twitter. It moves fast and dusn’t slow down fur peeps twyin’ to learn. And there’s a maximum number of letters you can tweet. Well yous all know weez chatty kits so we find dat a bit stiflin’. MOL Dat bein’ sed, weez keep twyin’.
Now duwin’ these chats they have these give aways. You know so we can twy sum of da purroducts fwum da bwands dat be pawrt of da chat. Da furst time we twied to win da twivia question was asked and like a 4 year old we blurted out da answer. Actually we posted da answer to da feed. Well dat’s not how yous posed to do it. MOL By da time we figgered out how to send a message, da whole chat was over. MOL You weally shuld see mommy twyin’ to figger it all out and keep up. And of course luv on me, cuz me be sittin’ in hers lap twyin’ to play patty cake wiff her. And anudder fing, they always have these chats at dinner time. Don’t they know when weez have dinner? Hmmph Yous wuld fink they wuld schedule these fings wound our schedule. MOL Now dat meez given you a little backgwound, let me get back to last night.
Yep, there was a chat last night. Mommy had set up hers weminder and we got logged in wight on time. Fings was actually movin’ a little slow and mommy was quite happy wiff dat. And all of a sudden everypawdy else’s clock musta been slow, cuz afur we kuld blink, da race was on. Tweets flyin’ here and there and little pop up boxes appearin’ and disappearin’ faster than we kuld read ‘em and so many gawjus kitty fotos movin’ down da stweam afur we kuld even paw da like button much less make a comment. And then da give aways began. Me told mommy to hurry cuz me wanted to win. Sis Lexi was watchin’ fwum a safe distance on da back of da chair, me was layin’ in hers lap, and mommy’s fingers was on fire clickety clackin’ on da puter keys. And guess what? Me won!!! Me finally won a twitter chat give away. OMC Me kuldn’t believe it. So now yous askin’ yous selff, did mommy finally figger it all out? Did she visit da fountain of youff? Did she suddenly get all teched up? Nah, it was just dumb luck. MOL But it was fun. And then it was time fur dinner. So weez pawed off and mommy made sis Lexi and me our pawsum dinner plates. All dat ‘citement musta welly got sis Lexi’s engines revvin’ cuz she ate 3 of those 3 ounce cans of noms and a packet too.
Meez question to all of you is…awe you on a social media channel dat yous have twubble keepin’ up wiff? Do yous tweet? Do yous purrfur a more laid back manner of keepin’ in touch?
