Chatting Cats: Brighter Days Ahead

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle.

 

 Dezi and Raena look out the front door

 

          Raena, what are you doin’?

 

I’s took a break from lookin’ out the door. Things are really blowin’ ‘round out there. I’s never seen anythin’ like it. Mommy says it’s cuz this is mine’s furst Spring, and there’s nuffin’ quite like Spring.

 

          Well, that’s true. Spring brings warmer weather, wind, storms, and all kinds of new stuffs. 

 

 Raena lays on the Liberty cat tree

 

That warmer weather stuffs is so right, sissy. You know when mommy and me went to her ‘pointment on Monday, it was really hot out. Fank catness we had air conditionin’ in the car. Did you enjoy your alone time?

 

 

 Dezi lays on the Liberty cat tree

 

          Me sure did Raena. Me napped, used the pawdee box without you stalkin’ me, played a little and, well, then me kinda missed you and mommy. Ya’ll were gone longer than me thought you’d be.

 

Yeah, sissy, it did take us longer than mommy had originally thought. You know, an angel, and we know she was an angel, cuz nopawdy knows her or had heard anythin’ ‘bout what she told mommy; and we haven’t been able to find her again. Mommy had called a dentist office to see ‘bout their prices and this angel told mommy to call her case worker and get them to approve her fur emergency assistance to get her teeth fixed. Mommy had never heard of such, and when she called her case worker, she hadn’t either. But eventually mommy got somepawdy that told her Medicaid would pay fur any emergency extraction deemed medically necessary with prior approval. So Monday we headed out to a dentist to see ifin any of mommy’s teeth qualify.

We was runnin’ late cuz mommy accidentally drifted off a few hours minutes in her chair. You know, she was s’posed to stay awake all night. Anyways, I’s danced and chortled till mommy agreed to take me, and we rushed off. As soon as we got outta the complex we ended up behind this guy in a pick up truck that was swervin’ all over the road. Even tho’ it’s illegal to use those cell fones while drivin’, ‘pawrently he just couldn’t wait to chat it up with whoever. It was purretty scary, so mommy kinda just backed off and we followed him till we got to a town with a red light so we could safely get ‘round him. It wasn’t till we got to the office that mommy realized she had furgotten to bring the camera, and her x-rays. Anyways, we were the only ones in the office and the staff was really nice. They didn’t really make googly eyes over me tho’. I’s not know what was wrong with them, but at least they were nice to mommy.

 

Dezi and Raena on the Liberty Cat Tree

Doctor Washington came in and poked ‘round in mommy’s mouth a bit and ordered a panoramic x-ray. We had to go to this room where mommy’s head disappeared into this helmet that went ‘round and ‘round her head. It was purretty cool. It was kinda like the last one she had done, but this time she was sittin’ down. Anyways, after the x-ray, Doctor Washington, said there was 6 teeths that Medicaid would pay fur. The criteria fur them payin’ is that death is immanent ifin said teeth are not removed in a timely manner. Then he told her she’d have to go to Oklahoma City to have them removed cuz no oral surgeons ‘round here take Medicaid. The appointment was made fur next Fursday the 30th. Now mommy has to find a ride. The office requires somepawdy drive mommy to her surgery ‘pointment and wait fur her to get finished.

 

 Dezi lays on the Liberty Cat Tree and looks into the house

 

          Yeah, me knows mommy’s been a little stressed over that one, cuz we don’t have anypawdy who can take her. She’s been callin’ ‘round to all kinds of places tryin’ to hire somepawdy fur that day. Our closest furiends live down ‘round the Dallas/Ft Worth area, or Northern Oklahoma. ‘Course, me would make a shout out to ya’ll; ifin you’d be willin’ to help us out and take mommy, we fur sure would get ya’ some green papers fur your troubles.

 

 Raena sits on perch at door and looks up

 

          We sure would sissy. Anyways, after the dentist visit, mommy decided to take her cans and sell ‘em. The trunk’s been full fur a couple of months now. We made a whole $15.00, so mommy treated me to some bacon. Furst, we stopped off at the Wally World to get mommy some bread and look at the treats. Mommy said they didn’t have any treats we would eat, so we left and stopped at the pet store to get a bag of somethin’. We got a new Ulta store last Christmas, well actually Ardmore got it. Anyways, we walked ‘round in there a bit too. Mommy luvs that beauty stuffs. The peeps there sure were pushy  helpful. They kept tryin’ to get mommy to buy somethin’ help mommy out. “Do you want a bag to place your items in? Can I help ya’ find somethin’?” Mommy kept tellin’ ‘em we was just lookin’, but they kept hoverin’ anyways. When mommy furinally got tired of it, we headed to the mickey D’s to get me some bacon; and headed home.

 

          Well, wha’d ya’ think ‘bout the bacon, Raena?

 

I’s not sure sissy. I’s guess it’s okay, but I’s would rather stick with freeze dried chicky breasts. I’s didn’t know why we didn’t stop at the place that said chicken filets (Chick-fil-A). Anyways, it was a long day, but I’s did enjoy spendin’ time with mommy. But I’s missed you too sissy. I’s was glad to be home.

 

 Dezi gets a LumaSoothe treatment

 

          Me was glad ya’ll were home too. Me got a LumaSoothe treatment and then we had dinner and treats. Dat’s always a great way to end a day. Meowin’ of the LumaSoothe, don’t furget to head on over and enter our give away by clickin’ the Enter Here graphic below.

Fanky fanks fur the reminder sissy. Now let’s link up with Rascal, Rocco and their pawsum co-hosts fur the Pet Parade and let mommy make some more calls to find her a ride. We can sure use the purrayers of our furiends, so that we can get all this worked out. Havin’ Medicaid pay fur these 6 teeths, means that mommy doesn’t need as much money to get the rest of her teethies fixed. We’d like to remind everypawdy ‘bout the fundraiser here, just in case you wanna donate and/or share. And you can always donate directly to our paypal with our email address: lexi.dezi@yahoo.com.

Smiling Paws Litter Mat

Meowllo everypawdy, and a meowsy big welcome to you Furiday. We thought you’d never get here. It sure has been a busy week. Me’s VET ‘pointment went okay. Me got another Rabies vaccination purr da law, so me can be legal fur another year. And nopawdy died of heat stroke from bein’ in da hot car. Ya’ know last year mommy learned dat da compressor fur da a/c is out and somehow da window broke and doesn’t roll down, so mommy tries to avoid goin’ as much as pawssible. But sometimes ya’ just gotta suck it up and go. Hopefully me doesn’t have to see dat office again fur at least another year. We don’t have any cat only offices ‘round here, and yesfurday seemed like every doggy in these pawrts was at da VET waggin’ their tails and slobberin’ on everypawdy. It’s like da doggies are happy to be assaulted, manhandled and poked and prodded. Anyways, me just wanted to give you all an update and say fanks fur da purrayers.

 Dezi atop the cat tree

Now, we have a great item to tell ya’ll ‘bout today, and a chance fur one lucky reader to win one of your own. A while back we were contacted by Smiling Paws Pets. They have these great lookin’ Litter Mats dat come in a variety of colors. Let me tell ya’ somethin’ ‘bout litter dat most of ya’ already know; litter tracks. Yep, sure does. Seems every litter we’ve tried tracks. Some less than others, but somehow, bits of cat litter end up outside of the box. So, everypawdy with a litter box in da house, can use a good litter mat. Fur a long time da only mats one could find were in blah gray. And let me tell ya’, they weren’t always soft on da paws. A litter mat’s a lot like litter; ifin kitty won’t step on it, it doesn’t matter how good it is or what a bargain you got, it’s useless.

 Smiling Paws Pets Litter mat

So after lookin’ over da litter mats at Smiling Paws, we agreed to try one out. Da mat is called: Extra Large Cat Litter Mat. It’s measurements are 35” X 23.5”. Da mat is nice and thick, BPA free, liquid and waterproof with an anti-skid backing; and claims to be easy to clean. Well with large kitties and large litter boxes, dat sounded like da mat fur us. Mommy was so happy they came in different colors. We got da brown so it would match da bathroom décor where da litter boxes reside.

Non-Skid Backing

When da mat arrived it was rolled up and had to be flattened out. No real problems there. We had one corner dat kept wantin’ to curl, so mommy sat it under one of me’s scratchers overnight and it was ready to go da next day. Da mat itself has a cute kitty in one corner and really short pile. As me said, we received da brown and it’s a true chocolate and looks really purretty with a cream colored kitty in da corner. These could also be used as door mats. Once we got it placed by da litter boxes we realized it was a bit smaller than we had expected. But ya’ have to remember, we have da giant litter boxes fur giant kitties.

So did it do da job? Yes, da short pile and thick nature of da mat itself meant it was comfurtable enough fur kitty to walk on and thus meant it would catch any errant litter attached to box exiting paws. As fur cleaning, da mat can be shaken out or vacuumed with da hand held attachments. Fur deep cleaning mommy said she would most likely squirt it down with da water hose. So mommy gave da Smiling Paws Litter Mat 2 thumbs up and me gives it 4 paws up. Smiling Paws Pets also makes a litter box deodorizer.

 Dezi checks out the Smiling Paws Litter mat

What Are The Expectations Of A Neighbor

Meowllo everypawdy da week is half over. Me how time flies. Readin’ through da comments and such me realized me’s not been real clear ‘bout who exactly mr. W is to mommy and me. We furget dat a lot of ya’ didn’t know us a couple years ago when we started out on Facebook, and so sometimes we need to take a minute to re-explain some things. Especially considerin’ what’s goin’ on now. What’s goin’ on now you ask? Well let me tell ya’.

 Dezi close up on arm of chair

As ya’ know mr. W had wanted mommy to take him his fone and she had agreed but only ifin she was usin’ his car. So after mommy’s doctor’s appointment Monday and durin’ da storms, she decided to take his fone over to him. Somethin’ she started regrettin’ furst thing yesfurday meownin’ when our fone started ringin’ non stop with mr. W barkin’ orders on our answerin’ machine. Mommy furbade me to answer da fone, and well, since me doesn’t really like mr. W me was happy to oblige.

As you also know, with all these storms and just me to help her, mommy’s getting’ ‘round really slow these days. So mommy had planned to call mr. W back after she got ‘round a bit. So there me was, peacefully eatin’ me’s brekky, and mommy was havin’ some coffee when all of a sudden one of da neighbors came up da walk. Now mind you she’s on a walker, and it purrobably took her 30 minutes to get to our apartment from hers, but there she was. Mommy went to da door and da neighbor said, “mr. W told me to come and tell you to…”. Da dot, dot, dots doesn’t matter cuz mommy stopped her and told her thank you and dat she would talk to mr. W herself. Me could see da steam comin’ outta mommy’s ears. We already had 11 messages from mr. W tellin’ her to do everythin’ this poor neighbor lady had been sent down to tell mommy to do. And just 2 days earlier mommy had gotten on to him fur orderin’ her around and here he was doin’ it again. And worse, he was wranglin’ others into doin’ it too.

Dezi yawning, Are we ever going for a stroll?

MOL Yous gonna get it now mr. W. Hold onto your shorts.

 

So, mommy came back over and sat down and told me to finish me’s brekky and she picked up da fone and quietly dialed da nummer. When mr. W picked up on da other end, mommy calmly but assertively said, “You need to Quit bossin’ me around!!! I’m NOT your girlfriend, I’m NOT your wife, I’m NOT your daughter, I’m NOT your mother, I AM your Neighbor. I’m the one you sucker into takin’ care of Buddy because you know I won’t let an animal suffer. But, and that’s a big BUT, I’m NOT your personal servant. I’m a human being with a life of my own and problems of my own and I deserve some respect.

 

 

I am having to go up to your apartment to take care of Buddy several times a day, while still taking care of my own, and all the other things I have goin’ on as well. If you had wheelchair repair people comin’ out today, they shoulda been who you were callin’ first thing this morning and not me. I can’t see the front of your apartment from mine or your parking lot and I’m not gonna go sit in your filthy apartment and wait on somebody that may or may not show up. And it isn’t my job to do your laundry. I can tell you exactly where your kids are. They’re not answering their phones because you wanna talk to them the way you talk to me, and that’s not acceptable.” And then mommy got quiet. She says mr. W said, he had to go cuz they were there fur his bath, so they hung up. No apawlogy, or nothin’. It’s been peaceful since then, cuz when mommy tells mr. W he has to be nice and ask and say purrlease and thank you, he always gets mad and we don’t hear from him fur a few days till he realizes nopawdy else is gonna take his calls or help him out. Sometimes mommy be too nice me thinks.

Now, fur those of ya dat think mommy was harsh, let me splain a bit more. Mr. W is our neighbor. There’s no way he will ever be anythin’ more. And ifin mommy was fallin’ off a cliff, he wouldn’t lend her a hand lessen he thought he might benefit from it somehow. Ifin he makes an offer to help mommy out, it’s cuz he wants mommy to do somethin’ fur him. So as nice as mommy is, she doesn’t feel da least bit bad ‘bout makin’ mr. W mad by tellin’ him to treat her with some respect. And fur those of ya’ confused ‘bout who mr. W is, we hope this clears dat up fur ya’. He’s just one of our 22 neighbors.

Buddy looking straight into camera in sit pose

Yeah I know I’m cute. But I am a meany too.

Da question also arose askin’ ifin Buddy could come and stay with us while mr. W was away. Da answer is no. Buddy isn’t a very furiendly kitty and he’s always been an only kitty. He’s also not so very nice to mommy. He tries to swat her at least twice every time she goes up there. Fur most of Buddy’s life his exposure to mommy has been fur claw clippin’ and medicatin’; 2 things he hates. So he kinda treats mommy da same way he does da VET. And of course we are still lookin’ fur me a new sisfur and helper. So there’s no way Buddy can come and stay with us.

dw-pmDezifire

Me’s gonna wrap it up fur now, mommy needs to go and feed Buddy. Don’t furget to enter me’s give away here.

How do you feel about being ordered around by others?

Would you have said anything mommy didn’t say?

Would you expect your neighbor to take care of your pets and household as well as bringing you things to the hospital every day for free.

 

 

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

You Gotta Go Where

WooHoo It’s finally Furiday!!! It’s still a little chilly but da sun was out when we got up this meownin’ and da temps are supposed to rise. Looks like summer may be here. You know what dat means? Me’s hopin’ fur lots of stroller rides with mommy.

 Dezi standing on back legs waving with front paws

Course, me’s havin’ to share her right now.

Yep, we got a knock on da door yesfurday and mr. W’s home health nurse said he told her to come tell mommy to take care of Buddy. Mommy just luvs how he thinks he can order her around…NOT!!! But of course mommy won’t let Buddy go hungry, so she trodded off to mr. W’s ‘pawrtment to feed Buddy. Da place was a mess (messier than normal), so mommy called ‘round to da hospital when she got back home. Sure ‘nuff he was there. He said Buddy tripped him and he broke his hip and had to have pins put in it. He’s been hopin’ fur a new hip fur a few years now. He’s been purr-pussly fallin’ tryin’ to break dat thing to no avail.

Buddy in hallway in sit pose

Now we’s not bein’ mean here, mr. W told mommy dat himself when she caught him out on da ice a couple winters ago tryin’ to slip and fall. Ever few months he goes to da hospital cuz of a fall, but he’s never broken dat hip. Well this time he did. Da only thing is, we don’t like him blamin’ Buddy. Trust me, Buddy’s no leg winder. And he’s used to givin’ a wide berth cuz mr. W be large and clumsy and uses a wheelchair. Anyways, me’s getting’ off track here, mommy be takin’ care of Buddy right now, so dat’s gonna cut into me’s strolls a bit; and everythin’ else fur dat matter. She’s tellin’ me to hurry now in fact cuz she needs to go feed and play with Buddy.

 Dezi all sprawled out on the floor bathing

Hmmmpht How dare she, he, they, whoever.

Well as me does every week me’s joinin’ Rascal and Rocco fur da Pet Parade. And hey, don’t furget to enter me’s Catit Give away here. Me’s gonna go take a bath while mommy tends to Buddy. We’ll be by to see ya’ soon.
