Chatting Cats: Prayers and Thank Yous

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Ifin ya’ follow us on that facebook thingy then you already know, I’s been a little unner the weather lately. I’s a hungry girl to be sure, I’s just havin’ a little trouble keepin’ mine’s noms in mine’s tummy where they belong. Mommy fixes mine’s plate, I’s eat and then a few minutes later I’s horkin’ that stuff all over the place. Actually, mommy says I’s a really good girl cuz I’s only throw up a little on the tile wood floor. I’s save the biggest blah fur the litterbox. Altho’ it doesn’t seem to matter where I make mine’s depawsits, mommy still cries. Yesfurday I’s suddenly got the wheezy sneezies right alongside the horkin’. I’s really ‘purreciate all of ya’ fur sendin’ up some purrayers fur me. Since I’s just went to the V E T fur mine’s yearly visit, our credit is maxed out. I’s not know what that pawrt means, but the gist of it is that we can’t go see the doctor till mommy pays it off. So, purrayers it is. God’s better than that ole V E T anyways.

          You’re right ‘bout that Raena, God’s better at everythin’. And, me and mommy are purrayin’ hard. Me heard mommy sayin’, she hoped it was just a stubborn ole hairball, and that that hairball paste she forced down you would help. Me doesn’t know why you don’t like the malty (hairball paste)?. It tastes so yummy.

Me luvs a good butter spoon (medicine).



It’s medicine, sissy?. We’re not s’posed to like medicine. Don’t you read how our furiends act when it’s medicine time? We make things way to easy fur mommy. I’s had to object to somethin’ just to keep her on her toes.

          Just cuz everypawdy else does it doesn’t mean we’re s’posed too Raena. We’re s’posed to be good examples and happily take our medicine. Besides, malty ain’t medicine, it’s a nommy treat. Anyways, Me’s wanted to fank everypawdy fur the birthday wishes. Me’s birthday month has started off with a bang. Me got lots of extra luvvin’, a relaxin’ groomin’ session and some treats from the Chewy Goody Box and Birthday box. What more could a girly ask fur? The bestest gift me ever got is a luvvin’ home with mommy. Me’s even grateful fur you. 


Fanky fank ya’ sissy. I’s grateful fur you and mommy too.

Chatting Cats: It’s Dezi’s Birthday #ChewyInfluencer

(Morning breaks and mommy looks down at Dezi laying on her chest and says) Happy Birthday my precious angel. I love you more than anything in the universe. (Looking over at Raena) You too Raena, I love you sweet baby girl. 


 Dezi the Birthday girl lays atop the Liberty Cat Tree




     (Dezi starts to rumble <purr> and meow. She runs down the cat steps through the house and back to the bed meowing) WooHoooooooo It’s Me’s Birthday!!! Wake up Raena and help me with mommy so we can get me’s Birthday started!!! It’s gonna be a furtabulous month!!!



Dezi and Raena look at the birthday cake that 's playing happy birthdayOMC Check out the Happy Birthday playing Birthday cake from

 I’s luvs you, sissy!!!




          Happy Birthday sissy!!! I’s so x’cited. We’ve even got 1 last Birthday Give away today. 


 Chewy Goody Box



     We sure do Raena. And, it’s a real live Goody. Goody Box that is. Me wonders how many of our furiends are furmiliar with those cool subscription boxes? We just luv ‘em. But, how many kitties have actually ordered them? Most peeps know we’re on a fixed income and don’t have many green papers. The problem with those cool subscription boxes is that you have to sign up to get them every month fur at least 3 months. When ya’ live paycheck to paycheck and still never have enuff green papers to go ‘round; ya’ can’t afford to make a $30.00 a month commitment.


 Chewy Logo

This is a Sponsored post. We received the Chewy Goody Box in exchange for our honest review. As always, we tell it like it is. We only bring products we use or have tried and feel would be of interest to you, our readers and friends.


 Chewy Goody Box




          That’s so true, sissy. Mommy does her bestest to make sure we have all the necessities; and sometimes that means her doin’ without necessities of her own. She sure can’t afford an extra expense, even ifin it would make us over the moon happy. So, when Chewy told us they had designed a Goody box of their own, we got really x’cited.


Dezi and Raena checking out the Chewy Goody box



     Sure nuff Raena. Chewy just rolled out their No Commitment, Buy only when ya’ wanna, Surpurrise Goody Boxes. Yep, ya’ read that right. There’s 3 boxes to choose from, the Meow You’re Talkin’ for kitties, Bone Appe-Treat for the bigger doggies and the Tiny But Mighty box fur the smaller woofies. They cost $19.95 and ship fur furee. Now ‘member, these are brand spankin’ new, so each box will contain the same surpurrises fur now. But, as time moves on, Chewy plans to innerduce new boxes with new surpurrises. The boxes contain 5 or more full size purremium products your woofy or kitty would luv. And ‘member, there’s NO Commitment. Any month ya’ have an extra $20.00, you can order one without worryin’ ‘bout a recurrin’ charge pawppin’ up on your credit card. 


 Contents of Chewy Goody Box




          We were really x’cited to be among the furst kitties to receive one of these great boxes, and just in time fur sissy’s birthday no less. And think ‘bout it, Christmas is just ‘round the corner. These Goody boxes would make a great gift, even fur those far away from ya’. Just place your order and have Chewy ship it to the kitty or woofy of your choice, within the U.S. of course. And then sit back and relax. You’re not obligated fur future shipments. Mommy always says, it’s so nice to receive gifts, but nopawdy but her took us on to raise. So, ifin ya wanna send a surpurrise gift every once in a while, these are purrect. You didn’t sign up fur a life long commitment with the Chewy Goody Box. And just look’it all the goody’s in the box.


 Dezi checks out the Chewy Goody Box




     Hey Raena, did you know the box itself can also be turned into a litterbox scoop holder? Sure can. Mommy read the little booklet what came with it and there’s instructions fur makin’ a scooper holder. Me fur sure gives the Chewy Goody Boxes 4 paws up.


 Raena paws at the Goody Box treats




          Me too, sissy. Me too!!! mommy gave ‘em 2 thumbs up cuz there’s no commitment. She might not ever have $20.00 to spare, but ifin she did, she could get us a Goody box without worryin’ ‘bout the next month or the next. We were so x’cited ‘bout the Goody boxes that we asked ifin we could give one away. And ya’ know what? Chewy said, YES!!!

Chatting Cats: Raena and the Bunny: A Story in Photos

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Sissy? Where’d you go yesfurday when mommy’s case manager came over? You had been takin’ a nice nap on the cat tree, and then when she got here, you were nowhere to be found?. She started askin’ mommy ifin we was ‘fraid of her, the storms and other loud noises.



dw-Dezi n Raena on the cat tree 9102


          Purrrrrrrlease!. Me’s not ‘fraid of her. Me just knew mommy was a little upset with her not doin’ her job, and didn’t wanna be anywhere near that conversation.


Oooooooh  She sure was upset with her sissy. Mommy’s case manager started talkin’ and mommy picked up the fone and said, “I have the message right here, ya’ want me to play it for ya’?” Case manager lady started shiftin’ in her seat. She was a little uncomfurtable that mommy had saved all the communications they’d had. She’s s’posed to call mommy once a week. And, when the DHS nurse was here back in January, she told mommy to have her case manager get her some wrist and knee braces. Mommy infurmed her case manager and then had doc write the scripts. It’s almost June and the case worker still hasn’t done anythin’ ‘bout gettin’ those fur mommy. And, after mommy’s recent fall, she’s a bit uptight ‘bout that. We could really care less ifin she calls every week, but the fact is, she hasn’t been, and that means, she ain’t doin’ her job. I’s should’a joined you UTB. MOL

(Raena sees a squirrel out the door and runs to the perch)

Sissy, did you see the bunny me played with yesfurday?

dw-Raena looks out from stroller 9331

Hmmmm How do I’s get outta here?


dw-Raena looks out of stroller 9329

Let’s see, is dat mud or is it dry? Maybe I’s should

go out the front ‘stead.


dw-Raena in stroller 9326

Yep, da front’s better. Wait a minute Bunny, I’s comin’.


dw-Raena in stroller 9333

What do you mean NO, mommy? I’s know I’s luvs bunny noms;

but I’s purromiss, I’s won’t eat da bunny.


dw-Raena meows at bunny from stroller 9330

Bunny?!! Come back!!! I’s purromiss!!! I’s won’t eat you!!!

You’s don’t know what might be waitin’ fur ya’

in those there woods.


dw-Raena walking towards woods in harness sm 9335     

Hurry mommy!!! We gotta go ketch Bunny!!!

Wait fur me Bunny, I’s comin’!!!

(Raena hurries while mommy pulls back on the leash)

Kittens!!! Come on mommy, Bunny’s gonna get away.


 Me saw you try Raena. But, there’s no way mommy was gonna let you play with that bunny. You know how germifobic she is. MOL  Me can’t believe she actually let you walk on the ground without shoes or somethin’. 


Well, maybe I’s didn’t actually romp ‘round with the bunny, but I’s did have a meow with it. Mommy said she couldn’t believe how close it let us get to it. And I’s saw a squirrel and some birdies. Who knows, those birdies might have been the ones from the nest on our porch.


          Sure Raena, those 4 little birdies are the only birdies ‘round here. MOL 


Are you and mommy goin’ fur a stroll today?



dw-Dezi stroller 7thbday2016DSCN8063edit (1024x768)


          We better be Raena. Ifin not today, then fur sure, she’ll take me tomorrow when we celebrate her birthday. Me’s gonna wear me’s new harness too.



Sissy, are we havin’ a pawrty fur mommy?


          Nope, no pawrties Raena, just lots of extra cuddles and luvvin’. 


And treats fur us? 


          Sure ‘nuff Raena. Mommy even said we weren’t s’posed to have any storms tomorrow, so we’ll get to have that pizza awnty Anonymous sent you fur your birthday. Mommy said we’ve gotta finish celebratin’ your birthday befur your Gotchaday gets here next month.




dw-Raena lays on shower bench 9310


Gotcha day? Am I’s gonna have another pawrty? 


          We’ll see Raena. Me bets you can at least invite some furiends over fur a play date.


Can I’s invite Simon with the floofy tail? And maybe Ollie and Alberto, and Valentine and…


          Stop while you’re ahead Raena. Ifin ya’ invite all of blogville, we might as well have a pawrty. 


WooHoo  Another pawrty!!! 


          Slow down, me didn’t say we were havin’ a pawrty, just that we should. We’ll have to meow to mommy and see what she says.



HBD Mommy 2017 Locket of Love


Well sissy, let’s link up with the Pet Parade and go ask mommy ‘bout that pawrty.
