Chatting Cats: The World Stopped Spinning So We’re Back

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Sissy, c’mon, the world’s stopped spinnin’ and we can load our site again.

 

 Dezi sits pretty in the hall behind my chair

 

 

 

          Are you sure? Me’s so tired of waitin’ fur the pages to load. Mommy says it’s cuz we live so far out and the innernet peeps haven’t upgraded the wirin’ ‘round here in like, furEVER. 

 

Raena sits pretty and poses on top of the Litter Robot boxThis box is huge, mommy.

 

 

I’s sure sissy. I’s already checked. What did you think ‘bout that big box we got delivered yesfurday?  

 

 Dezi lays on cat tree

 

 

          The box is great Raena. It’s what was in the box that me’s not so sure ‘bout. Mommy says we have to use it cuz we’re s’posed to write a review. 

 

 Raena lays on litter robot box

 

 

 

Yeah sissy, but I’s think it’s ‘bout more than just writin’ a review. Mommy seems really x’cited ‘bout it and says it’s gonna be a big help to her. Anyways, I’s just glad we can get back on the catputer. We’ve not been able to visit our furiends fur days. ‘Course, that did give mommy some time to clean the house. You know we’re havin’ a play date soon and we wanna make a good impurr-sion.

 

 Dezi sits with back to camera

Hmmmmm let’s see, where are we gonna put that thing?

 

 

 

          Yep Raena, me can’t wait. It’s gonna be so much fun. We haven’t had a play date in so long. By the way, did you hear mommy on the fone last night with Ms. A, Nub’s mommy? 

 

 Nubs the black and white manx cat looks at the camera

Bye Nubs. RIP

 

 

 

I’s did sissy. It’s so sad. We hadn’t been over to see him in a couple of weeks. Mommy had said we were gonna take him some special treats this week and then this happens. Ya’ know, Ms. A ended up with Nubs after his person died and nopawdy wanted him. We just can’t ‘magine what it must have been like fur him. Mommy says that’s why it’s so ‘purrtant to make plans fur us fur babies in the event we happen to outlive our peeps. Unfurtunately fur Nubs, he went to heaven on Monday. Ms. A had been at her daughters house, and when she got home, Nubs was layin’ in the kitchen almost dead. He died in Ms. A’s arms on the way to the V-E-T. 

 

          It’s really sad, Raena. but, at least he knew luv befur he left this world. 

 

He also knew the joy of a Yeowww nip nanner since we shared one with him. 

 

 Dezi plays with her new birthday nip nana

 

 

 

 

 

          Then ya’ know he was a happy kitty. Anyways, ‘nuff sad stuffs. Ya’ know, Christmas is comin’ up really soon. Me can’t wait fur mommy to put up our tree so we can watch all the lights. You know, you’re gonna have to leave the decorations alone. The tree baubles aren’t toys.

 

Raena plays with the Yeowww nip nana

 

 

Me?!!! What ‘bout you, sissy? I’s seem to ‘member it was you that mommy had to get on to last year.

 

          That’s not true and you know it. Me thought you didn’t ‘member anythin’ ‘bout your furst Christmas?

 

 Raena plays in the gift bag paper

 

 

 

How could I’s pawssubly furget somethin’ like Christmas, sissy? We got lots of purresents from our Angel furiends. And, we got to go visit and sing carols to the peeps in what mommy called an old folks home. I’s can’t wait to do that again. We are gonna do it again, aren’t we sissy? 

 

 Dezi getting love while laying in mommy's lap

 

 

 

          Mommy says some of the rules have changed. But, she’s gonna call and ask ifin we can come again this year. Me just luvs all the lights and decorations this time of year brings ‘bout. And peeps seem to act a little nicer too.

 

 Raena sits on bed beside chair, profile

 

 

 

That’s nice sissy. I’s wish peeps would be nicer all the time. Maybe our world wouldn’t be so full of hate.  Ya’ know, we better get busy visitin’ our furiends, and helpin’ mommy clean up fur our play date. I’s’ll race ya’ to the new box.

Chatting Cats: Where Did All This Cold Come From

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s can’t believe the week we’re havin’. And OMC It turned cold, cold, cold here over night.

 

Dezi and Raena sit on shower benches in bathroom

          Raena, ya’ need to s’plain what happened on Monday. You know, with our Service Cat Monday posty?. 

 

 Raena lays on a box

 

 

 

What’s that sissy? Why me? Ya’ make it sound like it was mine’s fault. I’s didn’t do anythin’ wrong. I’s didn’t make the innernets be sketchy, or the storms to roll thru, or all the letters and calls that came fur mommy with upsettin’ mews. And I’s fur sure didn’t schedule mommy’s doctors ‘pointment to be right in the middle of it all. 

 

 Dezi stretches on the scratching post

 

 

 

          Me never meowed it was your fault Raena, me just meant that you should let everypawdy know that we’re okay and sorry we missed Service Cat Monday. But, never fear, we’ll be back on schedule next week. Well, lessen the innernet’s ghosties appear again.  

 

Oh, okay sissy. Sorry, I’s just thought… 

 

          That’s what ya’ get fur thinkin’. MOL 

 

Sissy!!! I’s gonna tell mommy that you’re bein’ mean to me.

 

          Oh purrrrrrrlease. It’s not bein’ mean ifin it’s the truth. Anyways……

 

 Raena lays beside scratcher

 

 

 

(Raena looks around a bit confused) Somehow, I’s still think that’s not nice. But fur now, I’s’ll let it go. I’s gotta tell ya’ sissy, I’s not really likin’ all this cold weather we’re havin’. Mr. Sunshine hasn’t been out fur days. I’s thought it was Fall? Ya’ know cooler days fur strollin’? But Nooooooo, we went from Summer to Winter overnight. Altho’, I’s do like the appearance of the ‘lectric blanky. Snugglin’ with mommy the last couple of nights has been really toasty. Well, once you quit meowmblin’ that is. What’s up with that anyways.

 

 Dezi looks down from atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          What? You kept jumpin’ on me. Mommy told you it was late and time to go to bed. You know play time’s over when mommy takes us to bed. We’ve done the same thing every night since you came to live here. 

 

Maybe I’s wasn’t ready to go to bed, sissy. Maybe, I’s wasn’t sleepy yet. Maybe the colds have given me more energy. Maybe, you just looked to temptin’ not to jump on.

 

          Well, temptin’ or not, sleepy or not, you know the rules. You know mommy can’t sleep without us layin’ beside her. And besides, that ‘lectric blanky sure makes fur nice cuddlin’. As fur all that energy, me’s kind’a feelin’ it too. But me did hope fur a few more days of strollin’ weather befur it got so cold.

 

 Raena lays on the back of the chair

 

 

 

I’s purromiss I’s’ll do better tonight sissy. Meowin’ of sleepin’ and ‘lectric blankies, I’s thinkin’ a little nap just might be what the doctor ordered as mommy would say.

 

          That does sound like a good idea Raena. (Dezi sees the manager coming up the walk) HiSSSssssssss  Me’s thinkin’ we oughtta go nap right now Raena. Looks like more bad mews is on it’s way to the door now. 

 

Dezi lays in the chair with Raena on the back

I’s right behind ya’ sissy. Weather purrmittin’, we’ll be ’round to visit as soon as we can. I’s just wanna remind everypawdy there’s still time to get in on their chance fur that Chewy Goody box we’re givin’ away. Just click here.

Blest Sunday: Blessings Love and Peace

MeOW Raena, c’mon, it’s time to write our Blest Sunday posty. You know we have lots of blessings to meow ‘bout this week. 

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

 

 

          I’s sure do, sissy. I’s started off this past week not feelin’ so good. I’s sure was a hungry kitty girl, but I’s just couldn’t keep any of mine’s foods down. That’s a purretty miserable place to be. ‘Specially when I’s already needed to gain a few pounds. I’s quickly lost those 2 pounds I’s had gained and then some. Mommy’s eyes were so filled with tears, she could barely see. But, fanky fankfully, our furiends started purrayin’ and God showed up and calmed mine’s tummy. I’s ate 3 helpings last night and asked fur a few treats. Mommy’s eyes were still filled with tears, but, she said those ones were the joybell tears. I’s’ll never unnerstand the difference t’ween human tears; but, I’s really glad that mommy’s happy now. I’s still have a tad of the wheezy sneezies, but it seems I’s back to eatin’ like a champ again.

That you are Raena, that you are. Me’s glad you’re feelin’ better too. Trust me, you’ll never figger out those human tear things, so don’t even try. We don’t know why you had such a bad tummy upset Raena, but mommy thinks those wheezy sneezies just might be allergies. She’s wonderin’ ifin that might be the purroblem with your eyes too. They got all better after you got those eye drops, till the last couple of days durin’ your sicks.

 

 Raena lays inside tent track toy

 

 

 

          I’s thinkin’ mommy might be right, sissy. I’s heard mommy sayin’ that we might have to take a trip to the V E T as soon as we can. And, fanky fanks to uncle Pete, Timmy and furmily fur sendin’ some green papers to help with mine’s medical, that day might be sooner than later. Mommy’s just tryin’ to decide ifin she wants to put those green papers towards our bill so we can pay it off faster, or just see a new V E T. Decisions, decisions. I’s sure glad we don’t have to worry ‘bout those kinds of things sissy. 

 

 Blog 4 Peace badge

 

Me too Raena. We’ve got enuff to think ‘bout what with where to sleep, nap and what toy to play with. Anyways, as most everypawdy knows, we don’t blog on Caturdays anymore. And cuz of that, we missed the big Blog Fur Peace day. But, truth is, we think ‘bout and purray fur peace every day. We just don’t unnerstand why peeps would wanna kill each other over somethin’ as small as a disagreement. Ifin everypawdy thought the same way, what kind’a world would this be? Obviously, we luv God and believe He’s the one and only true God. And, we wish everypawdy believed it too. After all, we want all our furiends to be saved from their sins and spend eternity with us in heaven. But, we know that just isn’t gonna happen. None the less, we respect your right to believe somethin’ different without hatin’ ya’ and fur sure without killin’ ya’.

 

 Raena lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

     True sissy. We luvs all our furiends so much and don’t want anythin’ bad to happen to any of you. We purray that God would bless each of you and your families. And, that He would send healing to those that are sick, comfurt to those in turmoil and purrvision to all. We purray fur peace on earth and good will to all. Fanky fank ya’ fur bein’ our furiends and luvvin’ us even when we disagree. Diversity makes fur innerestin’ conversations and causes us all to strive to be better than we are.

 

Dezi lays on floor

Sometimes you can be really smart Raena. We really do ‘purreciate all of you fur your differences and the things we have in common. We fank you all fur your purrayers and suppurrt and ask that you continue to keep Raena in your purrayers. We wouldn’t be the least offended ifin ya’ said one fur mommy and me too. As always, we wanna remind you to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives.

 

Raena lays on back of chair

          And don’t furget, there’s still time to enter our Chewy Goody Box give away, just click here. We’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies too. We don’t really do selfies, but we luv the plandids. C’mon sissy, let’s go play.

Chatting Cats: Alive and Kicking

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s still alive!!! They tried their bestest to do away with me, but they failed!!! Fanky fank da cats mommy was there to purrtect me. She’ll bare the scars of her luvs and devotion to me furever. Sorry, ‘bout that mommy, I’s was just sooooooo scared, and you were right, mine’s claws do need clippin’. 

 

Dezi looks at Raena from atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

          RaenaBelle, fur kittens sake, nopawdy was tryin’ to kill ya’. (whispers under her breath) ‘Cept maybe me when ya’ jump on me’s back. (meowing audibly again) Anyways, what was up with you? You luv goin’ to town with mommy. But yesfurday you were tryin’ to hide, and escape the stroller and meowin’ to high heaven. Mommy says you even made a scene in the car. you could’a caused ya’ll to have an accident ya’ know?.

 

 Raena with goopy eyes

See mommy? Mine’s eyes look so much better. I’s don’t

need to go anywhere.

 

 

 

 

Oh sissy, after askin’ all our furiends to purray fur me, mine’s eyes were doin’ much better, and I’s decided I’s didn’t wanna go to the (whispers) V E T. And, I’s was right. They were just pawful. It smelled and there was this poor kitty somewhere in there that meowed to me how they were torturin’ him. Bless his heart, I’s couldn’t help him at all, so I’s scurried back into the stroller and pleaded with mommy fur us to leave post haste. What did she do? She just sat there luvvin’ on me like it was just any other day. Like I’s didn’t know what was gonna happen. The doctor came in with a needle bigger than me to stick me with. 

 

          A needle bigger than you huh? 

 

 Raena lays on the back of the chair

 

 

Okay, so maybe it wasn’t bigger than me, but it was still huge. You know, I’s lost some weight cuz mine’s eyes and all the drainage makes me not wanna eat so good; so any needle is too big fur mine’s poor little bony body. 

 

          Yeah, you might be built different than me Raena, and thus smaller, but there’s nuffin’ poor, little or bony ‘bout your body. Ifin that was the case, mommy would’a took ya’ to the V E T much sooner. You know mommy doesn’t get any joy outta takin’ us to that place. But you also know you’ve kept us all awake all week rubbin’ your eyes. Mommy’s exhausted and scared you might go blind ifin she doesn’t find a way to fix ya’. So, did you get any medicine? 

 

 Raena lays on cat tree

 

 

Yes sissy, I’s did. Fanky fanks to awnty Vonda who sent some green papers in case the charges were more than we could charge. Ya’ know we can only charge a hunnerd dollars, and mines medicine alone was almost $25.00. They sent home some of those pawful eye drops I’s hate so much. They help, but mommy doesn’t wanna use ‘em long term. The V E T told mommy to see how I’s do when winter comes. And ifin mine’s eyes clear up, we’ll know it’s fur sure allergies. But, ifin they don’t, I’s gotta go back. Hmmmmpht Can you believe they want me to come back? 

 

Dezi lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

          Yeah Raena, they do like takin’ our money. But, your eyes are very ‘purrtant, so ifin ya’ need to go back, then ya’ need to go back. We’ll just purray things get better and you don’t have too. Did the V E T say anythin’ else? Guess with you clingin’ to mommy so, she didn’t get any fotos  

 

Dezi watches Raena atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

Oh sissy, I’s healthy, happy and gawjus she said. You know they couldn’t get enuff of me. All grabby and stuffs they just kept wantin’ to touch me and coo over me. As fur the fotos…ya’ know, the funniest thing happened. I’s was so busy tryin’ to avoid getting’ dressed and you were so busy hidin’ UTB so you didn’t have to go, that neither of us reminded mommy to put the camera in her purrse. We were halfway to Ardmore when mommy realized she furgot it. By that time, it was too late to turn ‘round. So, there’s no foto evidence of mine’s horror visit. But, meowin’ of fotos, we got a great box that we’re gonna be tellin’ everypawdy ‘bout this month and we decided to share some of it with our new furiend Nubs. Mommy asked ifin she could take fotos of Nubs and Ms. A said it was okay. So, we have a foto of Nubs to show everypawdy. By the way, we’re gonna be givin’ one of those pawsum boxes we got away this month too. I’s think we’ve told ya’ll, we have a few great give aways comin’ up this month. Any of the items would make a pawsum Christmas gift fur your bestest feline furiend. As a matter of fact, we’ve got one comin’ up fur ya’ next week.

 

Nubs the black and white manx cat looks at the cameraHere’s Nubs. He’s a black and white Manx kitty.

 

 

          We sure do Raena. All these give aways are a build up to me’s birthday. We’re so x’cited. Ya’ know we luv sharin’ so anytime we can share our blessin’ with our furiends, we’re really happy. Meowin’ of Christmas as you were Raena, we’d also like everypawdy to know that awnty Ann from Zoolatry is takin’ orders fur Holiday PhotoArt. You know, even ifin ya’ don’t have a bloggy, she could design somethin’ pawsum fur you to use as your Christmas Cards. Check out some of the amazin’ work she does here. And, you can contact her directly at: zoolatry@gmail.com. What do ya’ say we go play? 

 

Dezi sleeps in the seat of the chair while Raena lays on the back of the chair

I’s right behind ya’ sissy. I’s think we purrobably oughtta keep it down tho’, I’s think mommy might need a nap.

Chatting Cats: A Little Mewsy

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. (Dezi and Raena pace in the living room waiting for mommy to put down the breakfast plates. Suddenly they hear the roar of the lawn crew. They look at each other and Dezi runs down the hall toward the bedroom. Raena runs behind her and then stops. She remembers passing mommy on all fours heading for the living room with her breakfast and turns back towards mommy. Just as she reaches mommy and starts to rub against her there’s a knock at the door. Raena steps slightly forward, looks out the slightly ajar door and hisses. Mommy, still on all fours with breakfast plates on her back, gently says)

 

Dezi walks down hall

 

 

          It’s just the manager and bug man honey. They’re here for inspections and exterminations. (As mommy tries to get to the door without dropping the breakfast plates from her back, she contemplates how she’s going to open the door. Raena walks slowly beside mommy, rubbing against her occasionally. When mommy finally gets to the door, nobody’s there, and she feels a sense of relief. Mommy and Raena butt heads as they head to the living room. The noise of the lawn crew wanes as they move to the other side of the property and Dezi runs up and rubs against mommy. Breakfast plates down and mommy in her sittin’ chair, Dezi and Raena begin to eat.

 

Sissy? Why do we always run when the lawn crew shows up? You know we’re s’posed to be helpin’ mommy. Besides, they’re just noisy. They can’t actually hurt us. 

 

 Dezi sits in hall and scratches ear

 

 

     (Dezi stops and nonchalantly scratches her ear)  Me doesn’t know why you run Raena. Me is helpin’ mommy. Me’s checkin’ fur those pesky intruders that scare her. You know, the last thing we’d want is fur mommy to get scared with our brekky plates. Now that wouldn’t be purretty. Anyways…(Suddenly, the lawn crew’s back, right outside the door and a rock hits the window, and then another and another; till Dezi runs off back down the hall. Raena sits and looks bewildered at first and then runs to the hall and into Dezi

 

Dezi and Raena meet in the hall way

Oh, hey sissy, wha’ch’a doin’? (Raena stops and rubs her eyes)

 

 

     Me heard mommy on the fone yesfurday Raena. Seems you’re goin’ to the V E T tomorrow. Ya’ better remind her to put the camera in her purrse tonight, or she’ll furget it tomorrow. Altho’ she might oughtta check the battery furst.

 

 

 Raena sits on perch and looks out door

 

 

That’s okay sissy. I’s sure hope they can do somethin’ to help mine’s eyes. I’s know mommy doesn’t want me to be on antibiotics and steroids fur a long time, and quite furankly, I’s don’t like havin’ those drops put in mine’s eyes; but, they do seem to help clear everythin’ up. I’s know mommy had wanted to take me to a new V E T. But she says, we can charge mine’s visit with the old one, and we just don’t have any green papers right now. She said mine’s eyes just can’t wait any longer, she just hates to see me hurtin’. We’re so blest to have a mommy that loves us so much. As fur the camera, why can’t you help me remind her. Ya’ know, the more naggin’ the better. MOL 

 

 Dezi peeks out from a chewy box

 

 

     Sure ‘nuff Raena. Me sure hopes they can help ya’. Maybe ya’ll can go back to the store and get me a birthday surpurrise.

 

 Raena lays on perch and looks out door

 

 

What ifin mommy already got you one, sissy? We’ve got a big box in the hallway to review that mommy says is gonna be your birthday surpurrise. Seems that should be enuff. (Hearing muffled talking outside Raena runs to the perch to look outside) Hey sissy, do you think we have a new neighbor already? 

 

     Me has no idea Raena. It was crazy. The day the new old neighbors moved out and turned in their keys, some lady moved a bed in there and hasn’t left since. She also hasn’t moved anythin’ else in. Can you ‘magine livin’ there with just a bed? And what’s she eatin’? And wearin’ fur that matter? Strange, me tells ya’, it’s just strange.

 

 Dezi looks at Raena from atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

Yeah sissy, it’s fur sure strange. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens. Maybe she moved here from somwhere far away and her stuffs comin’ in one of those big trucks or somethin’. Anyways, let’s go finish eatin’ and play. I’s’ll be there after I’s ask everypawdy to purray fur me and mommy and our trip to the V E T tomorrow.

 

     And your eyes Raena, don’t furget your eyes. 

 

Fanky fanks sissy.
