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).

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

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.

Chatting Cats: Is Mommy Losing It

Well, here it is already the 4th day of the Mew Year. We were all sittin’ ‘round this meownin’ thinkin’ ‘bout how quickly time is passing these days; when mommy popped up and said, “You know girls, Time waits for no man.” 

 Dezi and Raena with nip toy

          What did she mean sissy?

 

Oh Raena, me thinks she might have hit her head too hard, fallin’ outta bed or somethin’. Me has no idea what she was talkin’ ‘bout. Sometimes, she just gets lost in thought and blurts out the furst thing that comes to mind.

Dezi and Raena lay on the cat tree and small perch to look out the window and chat

          I’s checked that google thing, and it seems they don’t really know the origins of what she said, but it ain’t an original thought, so at least we know she isn’t losin’ it.

 

Don’t be silly Raena, of course she’s not losin’ it. Mommy just has a ton of stuff in her brain and sometimes it just comes out. Wonder ifin that ever happens to any of our furiends?

 

          Ifin what ever happens? They make no sense? Or just blurt out nonsense?

 

Just cuz we don’t understand doesn’t make it nonsense. Specially  ifin it exists Raena. And you said you found it on google.

 Dezi and Raena look out the front door

          Yeah sissy, but you know mommy’s always sayin’ how stupid google is. And you know that must be true, cuz she hates that word and won’t call anypawdy stupid.

 

Well, that’s true, but me knows mommy’s not losin’ it, and that’s that. Besides, she planted up her new AeroGarden yesfurday. And trust me, that took some sense. And then, she had to outwit you to get the cover back fur one of the seed pods. She was so purroud of her garden Raena, why would you go and steal a plastic cap? 

 Raena checks out the AeroGarden

          I’s couldn’t help mines self sissy. Didn’t you see them? They’re so tiny and just the right size fur carryin’ and battin’ ‘round. I was gonna have sooooooo much fun. Well, till mommy took it back that is. Besides, these are just purractice plants anyways; she hasn’t got any lettuce seeds yet.

 

Purractice or not, mommy would like to be successful. And these plants are herbs she can use to season stuffs.

 Raena oversees the AeroGarden

          She will be sissy. I’s gonna help her.

 

Is that what you call what you were doin’…Help?. Hmmpht  We’ll see. Me thinks it’s purretty cool. The lights come on and off all by themselves. And there’s somethin’ in there that swooshes the water ‘round every once and a while all on it’s own too. We’ll have to ‘member to post updates along the way. But fur now, let’s just go finish brekky. That is after mommy gets your plate uncovered. And don’t ever turn mes plate over again, K?!!!

 

          You wasn’t eatin’ it, and I’s don’t want anythin’ bigger than us to smell it and come and eat us. 

 Dezi lays in mommys' lap for some loving

Ain’t nuffin’ comin’ to eat us Raena. Mommy won’t let it. We’ll be by to visit soon. We’re still waitin’ on the wheelchair batteries, so mommy’s extra slow. 

 

Do you daydream?

Do you ever just blurt out your thoughts?

Are you interested in seeing the progression of mommys’ AeroGarden? 

 

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