Chatting Cats: Raena Has A Virtual Play Date

(Taking you all back in time to last Thursday when mommy went to her dental surgery appointment and we, her beloved Service Cats, stayed home. Dezi was left in charge and Raena had pre-arranged a virtual play date with Simon of Brian’s Home Blog. The following events could have taken place during the hours of 11:00 AM and 7:00 PM

Sissy, mommy’s getting’ ready to leave. I’s don’t want her to leave me here. I’s wanna go with her.

(Raena begins to dance around and zoom thru the house and paw at her harness. In a last ditch attempt to make mommy change her mind and take her, she runs and jumps inside the stroller and pokes her head out the side and meows at mommy

 

 Dezi sits on scratcher

 

          RaenaBelle!!! Knock it off. Mommy has a good ride and will be fine. Besides, you have a play date to get ready fur. Simon will be here any minute now. 

 

 Raena bathes and plays on the floor

 

(Raena starts zooming thru the house again, and gathering up toys. She sits down to have a bath and meows at Dezi.Oh MeOW  I’s gotta floof up and have a quick bath. Sissy, will you put out the Yeowww toys, and maybe some of that yummy silvervine? Do all our ‘lectric toys have furesh batteries? Can you wave the wand toys fur us? Can we play on the Liberty Tree? Do you ‘member what Simon’s favorite treat is? Surely he’ll like our freeze dried chicken breasts. Maybe…

 

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

 

          Slow down Raena. Me plans on nappin’, not wand wavin’. There’s purrlenty of toys ‘round here fur ya’ll to play with. Maybe not the ‘lectric ones, me thinks you ran all the batteries down, and mommy hasn’t bought any more. Just ‘member the rules…No jumpin’ on me, chasin’ me or tryin’ to play with me’s tail. And pawsitively, NO funny business. You’re a respectable Southern Belle Lady cat and Simon be a very respectable gentlemancat; also from the South. 

 

No funny business? But I’s invited him over to play and have fun, sissy. 

 

          (Dezi shakes her head.)

          That’s not what…never mind. Ya’ll can have fun, just ‘member your manners to make mommy purroud. 

          (The doorbell rings and Raena jumps

 

Sissy, will you get the door? I’s found one of our silvervine sticks and I’s wanna clean it up and give it to Simon.

 

          (Dezi nods and heads for the door)

          Meowllo Simon. Glad you could come over and keep Raena busy while mommy’s away. Come on in and make yourself comfurtable. Mommy cleaned the fountains and put out furesh water, and she cleaned the litterboxes right befur she left. How’s the furmily?

 

 Dezi lays on floor with Simon

 

     Thanks Dezi. Everybody’s doing well, thanks for asking. I really appreciate you girls inviting me over for a play date. You know, my family doesn’t always appreciate my…energy and antics.

 

(Raena zooms into the living room and drops her silvervine stick in front of Simon. She blushes and coyly meows)

Do you like silvervine Simon? We luvs it. You can have this stick. We got a whole package fur Christmas. 

 

          Me’s gonna go to the back and have a nap. You two have fun.

 

 Raena plays with the Yeowww nip nanner while simon looks on

 

Fanky fanks sissy. C’mon Simon, do you like the Yeowww nip nanners? We’ve got 2, so we can each play with one. Feel furee to empty the toy basket, I’s do it all the time. MOL 

(Some hours later, Raena and Simon conspire to wake up Dezi to see if she wants to play with them)

You jump up from the far side of the bed and I’s’ll Jump on sissy from the pet steps.

(Simon jumps on the bed and Raena jumps on Dezi’s tail

 

          Hissssssssssssssss Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Me told ya’ll not to bother me. 

 

But sissy, we just wanted to see ifin you’d like to play?.

 

 Dezi lays on the bed surrounded by Raena and Simon of Brian's Home

 

          NO!!! Me doesn’t wanna play Raena. Me wants to take a nap in peace! Me thinks ya’ll have had too much nip and vine. Now both of ya’, go away and leave me alone.

 

 Raena and Simon lay on top of the Liberty Tree

 

     (Simon and Raena slink off back to the Liberty Tree)

     Oh Raena, your sisfur’s like mine. They don’t know what they’re missing. They just don’t appreciate a good game of tag. At least you only have 1 sisfur. I’ve got 6. And then there’s the one at the top of the landing behind bars. She’s so pretty, but she doesn’t even want me anywhere near her space. I think she’s in jail, but nobody seems to be interested in bailing her out. I’m only trying to help her when I go up to visit, but she doesn’t seem to want any visitors. Well, other than my mom and dad that is. Word is, she loves spending time with my dad. We all do. Our humans are pretty great. I’m really glad they decided to bring me and Seal inside. Ya’ know at first I wasn’t so sure about this inside living thing, but I’ve gotta admit, it sure is nicer than fending for yourself in the wild. And brother Brian’s pretty cool.

 

We luvs your furmily, Simon. Sorry your sisfurs are such killjoys. Ya’ know, sis Dezi and me could help ya’ spring Precious from jail. Word has it that sis Dezi and mine’s purredecessor Lexi, helped break a couple kitties outta the big house years ago.

 

     Thanks Raena, I’ll tell her. But I don’t think she wants to get sprung. Thanks for inviting me over. I had a great time. We’ll have to do this again sometime.

 

 Raena looks over from atop the Liberty Cat tree

 

Fanky fanks fur comin’ Simon. I’s had a great time. Havin’ company sure did help keep mine’s mind off the fact that mommy wasn’t here, and didn’t take me with her. Don’t furget to take your silvervine stick home. You’ll purrobably have to hide it or your fursibs might try to steal it. I’s found that they can’t steal it ifin ya’ hide it under the fridge or oven.

(Raena and Dezi say goodbye to Simon, and wait for mommy to come inside)

Fanky fanks fur lettin’ Simon come over sissy. We had a great time.

 

 Dezi and Raena on the Liberty Cat Tree

 

          Me’s glad ya’ll had fun Raena. And fanks fur not botherin’ me, Mostly.

          Well, there ya’ go. Things coulda happened this way, but the truth is…Raena has some real  seperation anxiety issues when it comes to mommy. Me heard furst hand, but mommy heard thru the grapevine, that Raena caterwauled almost the whole time mommy was gone. 

 

 

I’s don’t caterwaul sissy. I’s just missed mommy and wanted her to know I’s was thinkin’ ‘bout her. Fanky fanks to Brian and furmily fur lettin’ us borrow some fotos and blog our adventure. We hope you all have a pawsum day.

 

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

Chatting Cats: The Bobble Hat Saga

Hey!!! Is Anypawdy out there?!! It’s me, RaenaBelle!!!

(Raena sees mommy coming and runs)

 

Raena hides behind the Liberty cat tree

She’ll never find me here.

 

 

Help!!! You won’t believe what mommy’s makin’ me do!!!

 

 

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

          (Dezi gets up from her nap and saunters into the room with Raena)

          What are you catterwallin’ ‘bout Raena? 

 

 Raena peeks out from behind the Liberty Cat tree

 

(Raena crouches down and looks around the corner and then back at Dezi)

Look out sissy, mommy’ll be comin’ fur you next!!! She’s got the flashy box in one hand and somethin’ strange in the other. She’ll be comin’ fur you too.

 

 

 Dezi stand on the house on the Liberty Cat tree

 

     (Mommy stands in the bedroom where she had followed Raena and calls out to Dezi and Raena. Both girls had ran past her toward the living room.) Girls, come on. This was your idea. Ya’ll wanted to help Parsley and Smoochie and all those kitties who are still waitin’ fur homes. This is important. And it’s for a good cause.

 

 Dezi wipes her eyes atop the Liberty cat tree

 

          (Dezi paws at her eyes still trying to wake up from her nap)

          What’s mommy yappin’ ‘bout, Raena? 

 

Bobble Hat and mandala coloring book from Bionic Basil

You know. That time travelin’ bobble hat that be goin’ ‘round Blogville. Fur every kitty that wears it and meows ‘bout it, Basil’s housemates Parsley and Smoochie will donate 2.00 pounds (sorry, we don’t have a pound symbol here, just a dollar one.) to the Burton Joyce Cat Rescue. It’s a great cause, but you went and volunteered us to wear a hat!!! What were you thinkin’?

 

 

          (Dezi meows sleepily)

          A hat? A bobble hat? We’re s’posed to wear a hat? Nah, me wouldn’t agree to that?. Did me?

 

Hmmmpht  Several times!!! And now, the hat’s here and mommy’s got it!!! Basil’s mommy was so sweet and sent mommy her Mandala colorin’ book and included our very own bobble hat.

 

 

 Mandala's on Mondays with Cat coloring book by Catherine Garnell

 

          Me saw the colorin’ book, that was really cool and mommy can’t wait to start colorin’. But me don’t ‘member anythin’ ‘bout no hat.

 

(Mommy appears at the door with the camera in one hand and the bobble hat in the other and picks up Raena)

Aaaaaack  She’s here!!!

(Raena struggles and reaches out for Dezi)

 

Raena looks up at mommy while wearing the bobble hat

Why are you doin’ this to me mommy?

 

 

Help Sissy, she’s got me!!!

 

 Raena sits on the Liberty Cat Tree while wearing the bobble hat

 

          (Dezi lays down and yawns)

          Better you than me, kid.

          (The house falls quiet and Dezi drifts off for another nap. Before she can even wake up, mommy grabs her up and places the bobble hat on her)

          What? Mooooooooommy, me doesn’t wanna wear a hat.

          (Dezi looks up at mommy)

 

Dezi lays on the vanity while wearing the bobble hat

Fur kittens sakes mommy. At least get a decent foto.

 

 

          Fine. But just this once.

(Raena appears at the door and starts laughing)

Me told you, that you were next.

 

 Dezi lays on the vanity while wearing the time traveling bobble hat

It’ll do. Basil, Parsley, Smoochie, ya’ll owe me big fur this one. MOL

 

          (Photos taken and hat removed, Dezi starts re-fluffing her floofy fur)

          Don’t tell me we have to model the socks mommy won from Three Chatty Cats too?.

 

 Best friends socks and coffee mug

 

Fank the cats, No. But they are really cool, and mommy’s luvvin’ her new coffee mug too. All kiddin’ aside, we didn’t mind wearin’ the bobble hat. It’s fur a great cause, and we’re all ‘bout helpin’ kitties in need. We wish every kitty had a luvvin’ furever home like we do. So any time we have the oppurrtunity to help, we will. You too can help out by joinin’ the Time Travelin’ Bobble Hat Worldwide Tour. And ifin ya’ like those cool adult colorin’ books, check out Basil’s blog on Mondays (Link above). They post a new and unique colorin’ page fur you to purrint and enjoy every week. 

 

Pet Parade Blog Hop Badge

          Hey Raena, don’t furget the Pet Parade blog hop with Rascal and Rocco. Ya’ know, Basil be one of the cohosts so you can link up at either blog. Just ‘member to link up; it’s great fun.

 

 Raena looks away while wearing the bobble hat

Alright mommy, dat’s enuff with da hat. Can we have

some treats now?

 

Well sissy, you already did. We did wanna mention that we think we’re back to bein’ able to leave comments on blogger. We think what happens, is that we get marked as spam on blogger every once in a while, and till that purrson un-spams us, we can’t comment. We’re not accusin’ anypawdy, cuz it’s pawssible that blogger is the one that flags us and not an actual purrson. But it does take an actual purrson to un-spam us. So fank you to whoever it was that retrieved us from your spam folder.

 

 Raena lays on the small perch and looks our the front door.

 

Well, that’s it fur us today. Mommy got to rest the last couple of days and her neck kink is better. So we’ll be ‘round to see ya’ just as soon as we can. We hope you all have a pawsum weekend.

 

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

 

Do you (your cat) mind wearing hats?

Do you (your human) enjoy the adult coloring books?

Do you want to participate in the Time Traveling Bobble Hat to help kitties in need? If so, please let Basil know (link above).

 

Raena: Navy Blue

We’ve Got Sprouts

We won’t be writin’ a lot today cuz mommy has that free exam at the dental clinic. But we did wanna update you all a bit. We told ya’ that last bad fall mommy took really did a number on her. She had the doctor take a look see on Monday, and he said she hadn’t broken anything. that was the good mews. She does have a huge knot and some general swelling that he said should get better in about 6 weeks or so. And then he told her that the falls were only gonna get worse as she gets older. Like she didn’t already know that. MOL

 Dezi poses atop the Liberty Cat Tree

Anyways, we were really happy that most of ya’ were interested in followin’ the progress of AeroGarden. Let me tell ya’, that Raena is keepin’ a real close eye on everything. Y, Last night she tried to run off with another one of those caps. Fankfully mommy saw it all unfoldin’ and was able to grab the cap and replace it befur any damage could be done. But, fanks to Raenas’ watchful eye and antics, mommy realized that we have some sprouts. Yep, sure ‘nuff, we have some baby leaves and stems growin’. Mommy had missed it cuz those little caps are full of humidity with little water drops obscurin’ her vision. Like she needs anything else messin’ with her eyes. MOL

 Raena oversees the AeroGarden

As to the who, that will go with mommy today, you’ll just have to wait and see. Me thinks me got more votes, but one of ya’ pointed out all the reasons you thought it should be me. Ya’ mentioned the chaos of Wally World, the uncertainty and length of the appointment, and mes superior calm demeanor in all situations. Unfurtunately, those are the exact reasons Raena should go. She needs to learn to be calm under pressure and in all situations while still purrfurming her duties. So it falls to mommy to decide who will get to go. How she’s feelin’ and what she thinks she can tolerate play a big part in her decision making.

A couple of you suggested we both go. So we thought we should explain why, that wasn’t a good idea. We would luv it and so would mommy. But, we both do the alert to a syncope incident, so mommy doesn’t need both of us in public. And the common sense and respect fur others comes into play. Mommy will be going to places that generally don’t allow pets/animals, but by law have to allow Service Animals. The actions of one purrson can affect all. So it’s better to take only one of us and remain low key, than to take both of us and insist they allow it. Ifin this was an overnight trip, that would be different, because it takes both of us to purrfurm the duties required. So, we’ll let ya’ know who and what happened in another posty.

Gift Box for mommy

This was the box with cheater mac and cheater taters mommy got back in December. Mommy says Fank you sooooooooooo much. She really enjoyed all da goodies in this box. She luvved dat cornbread and those brownies were outta this world. She ate it allllllll up. MOL

We also wanted to address our cheater mac and cheater taters comments. We received an email that said we sounded ungrateful, which couldn’t be further from the truth. It was mostly said to give you all a giggle. Mommy has always called boxed and pre-packaged foods as “cheater” food cuz they’re easy peasy to make. Instead of grating 4 cheeses and baking in the oven fur an hour, cheater mac is made on the stove top in ‘bout 10 minutes. Instead of bakin’, roastin’ or boilin’ and mashin’ up taters, the “cheater” taters can be made on the stove top in less than 5 minutes. Mommy enjoyed the cheater mac and ‘specially those butter flavor taters. We have no clue who sent them to mommy, but we wanted to make sure we pawlogized ifin you thought we were ungrateful cuz that just isn’t true.

 

Well, we gotta go now, so mommy can get ready. We’ll be by when we can. We hope you’re all stayin’ warm and toasty.

 

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

What’s That White Outside

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Guess what? There’s white stuff all over everything outside. I’s never seen anything like it. When we went to bed last night the ground was yellow and the tree leaves were all dead and brown and now everything’s white. Even the sidewalks we stroll on are white. I’s don’t know when or how it happened, but it seems to make it colder too. We fur sure purreciated that ‘lectric blanky last night.

 Dezi and Raena look out at the first snow of 2017

          All that white stuff is snow, Raena. And it definitely makes things colder. It’s pawful. Trust me, you don’t wanna go outside while it’s there.

 Dezi and Raena look outside at the first snow of 2017

That’s snow sissy? I’s thought only our Northern furiends got snow?.

          Well Raena, they do, but we get some too. The difference is that they get lots and lots more than we do.

First snow of 2017It’s still snowin’ and by the time we post, the whole ground will be covered.

But we needed a foto so we could post.

 

More? Oh Meow  Maybe mommy will take us fur a stroll and I’s can check it out. Some of our furiends have meowed about goin’ out and playin’ in it.

 

 

          Mommy ain’t takin’ us fur no snow strolls Raena. Ifin ya’ ask nicely, she might put your harness on and let you go out and touch it, but mommy hates snow as much as me. And besides, she took another really bad fall yesfurday tryin’ to get to the door fur our chewy box.

 Raena eats breakfast

Oh sissy, that was a bad one. She cut her back on somethin’. Fankfully, she has us fur extra cuddles and luvvins.

Ya’ reckon mines harness will still fit? You know I’s gained a few pounds over the holidays?.

 

          You sure did. Guess we’ll see soon enuff. Mommy has a doctors ‘pointment next week. Me’s sure it will still fit tho, you’re built a little different than me or even sis Lexi was. You have that long body that matches your tail and as humans would say, legs that go on furever.

 

Are you makin’ fun of me sissy?

 Dezi lays in mommys lap for loving

          No, me’s just tellin’ it like it is. You’re gonna be a long tall kitty girly. Y, Mommy was sayin’ just this meownin’ how when you stand on your back paws and reach up with your front ones, you can open da freezer. And we have da tallest fridge they make. Now lookit, we’ve babbled on ‘bout purractically nuffin’ today. Let’s wrap it up and go give mommy some more cuddles.

Pet Parade Blog Hop Badge

Raena lays in mommys lap for loving

Okay sissy. Furst we gotta link up with Rascal and Rocco fur the Pet Parade. Check it out, they feature a different Pet blog each week. Sissy says her and sis Lexi (God rest her) was featured there once. We hope you’re all stayin’ safe and warm. I’s gonna see ‘bout checkin’ out this white stuff. Hopefully I’s’ll be able to report back later.
