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.

Chatting Cats: Watching Out The Door

EDIT: We don’t know when this will post as all internet, phone and cell service went out in our area at 10:30 a.m. Friday 9/15/2017. We have put this post on a loop to publish with the first signal.

 

 

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. (Raena sits on the perch staring out the door and meowing loudly at mommy and the neighbors looking at the car.) Mommy, I’s can see you!!! Purrleeeeeease…let me out there with you!!! MeeeOWwwwwww

 

Dezi looks out door from cat tree

 

          RaenaBelle!!! What is all the caterwaulin’ ‘bout? A kitty can’t take a purropurr beauty nap what with all that noise goin’ on.

 

 Raena lounges on perch and watches the rain out the front door

 

 

I’s wanna be outside with mommy and the new neighbors, sissy.

 

 

 Dezi and Raena look out door from cat tree and small perch

 

 

          (Dezi gets on the cat tree and looks out the door) Raena? Do you see mommy glistenin’ sweating in the sun? It’s hot out there. You don’t wanna go outside. It’s much nicer in here with the air conditioner. Mommy ain’t goin’ nowhere…least not without us.

 

 Dezi and Raena look out door from cat tree and small perch

 

 

I’s know sissy, but I’s still wanna be out there with her. She said the new neighbors are movin’ cuz the manager’s harassin’ ‘em. But they’ve been kind enuff to help mommy work on the car. Seems our car’s radiator tank sprung a leak and hopefully that’s the reason fur all that gurglin’ and sputterin’ the other day. The neighbor boy couldn’t check the fans cuz of all the spewin’ water and antifreeze. Mommy says that antifreeze is the reason I’s can’t go outside with her. 

 

          That’s true Raena. Antifreeze is deadly fur us anipals. Unfurtunately some peeps aren’t very careful with that stuffs and we anipals seem to be attracted to it like a moth to a flame. 

 

I’s don’t see how sissy, that stuff stinks. When the car did all that sputterin’ the other day, I’s got all choked up. I’s couldn’t get outta the car fast enuff.

 

 Dezi and Raena look out door from Cat tree and small perch

 

 

          Me doesn’t know either Raena, but every year lots of anipals end up at the VET cuz of antifreeze poisonin’. Anyways, mommy ordered one of those tanks fur the neighbor boy to put on the car, and we’re purrayin’ hard that’ll fix everythin’. In the meantime, mommy says our surpurrise is comin’ this weekend. And, since she’s been busy all week with the car, she hasn’t gotten to the house cleanin’ that needs to be done. Looks like we’re gonna be helpin’ with that today and tomorrow.

 

 Raena paws at the mop Raena checks out the mop

 

 

Yep sissy, since mommy can’t actually drive the car, she had to order the pawrt and it won’t be here till Tuesday. Why don’t you run the carpet monster and I’s will help mommy mop.

 

 Dezi vacuums

 

 

     Sure Raena, whatever you say…as if. MOL 

 

Then we can play. I’s can’t wait fur our surpurrise. (Dezi and Raena run off excitedly and play zoomies with the piddle pads in the bathroom

Chatting Cats: And The Catastrophes Just Keep Coming

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We got word this meownin’ from the last of our furiends in the path of those terrible hurricanes; that all are safe. What a relief!!! Seems there’s been some damage to purr-opurrty, but no damage to the peeps or anipals.

 

 Dezi leaves the chair

Ah Kittens!!! It’s the lawn crew. Better go check UTB fur intruders.

 

 

          (Dezi meows from down the hall because she heard the lawn crew and went to check fur intruders UTB <under the bed>) Me was so happy to hear that our furiends were safe Raena. We are so blest to have so many wonderful purrayin’ furiends.

 

 Raena lays on chair back looking down the hall

 

 

We sure are sissy. There’s gonna be a lot of clean up, repairs and relocatin’, but at least our furiends are still together and safe. So many peeps and anipals got separated in these storms. We’re purrayin’ really hard that everypawdy is reunited soon.

 

          (Still meowing from UTB) That we are Raena, that we are. What were you and mommy doin’ with the hood up on the car yesfurday?

 

 Raena in stroller

 

 

Oh sissy, mommy’s so furustrated. We had to go to the store to get some more taters fur mommy and some more of that sticky stuffs to keep her teethies in her mouth. When we got home, we heard this bubblin’ and gurglin’ sound and then suddenly without any warnin’, the car started steamin’. ‘Pawrently water and somethin’ called coolant splattered everywhere and dumped out a puddle under the car. Mommy popped open the hood to take a look. (Raena rolls her eyes and snickers) Like she actually knew what she was lookin’ at. MOL  Mommy could see that most everything was wet. She shook her head and started cryin’. She told me how tired she was as she strolled me back to the house. I’s not sure mommy has much fight left in her sissy. We just can’t ever seem to get ahead of our own little catastrophes. I’s say, shame on that stinky car fur breakin’ again.

 

          (Dezi meows from the bedroom door as the lawn crew has moved to the other side of the purr-opurrty and quieted a bit) Well Raena, there is one up side to the car breakin’. Mommy had to cancel your VET ‘pointment and her teeth relinin’ ‘pointment. Without a car, she can’t very well get to Ardmore.

 

Raena lays in mommy's lap

 

 

Well sissy, while I’s might not wanna go to the VET, I’s do know that it’s necessary sometimes. And fur sure, mommy needs to be able to get to the dentist office. We need to purray fur mommy and the car. I’s don’t know what mommy’s gonna do ‘bout the car, but she’s gotta figger out a way to have it checked out so we can at least know what it would cost to fix it. With the wheelchair broke and now the car too, we’re purretty much house bound. I’s purretty sure mommy’s depression is at an all time high.

 

 

 Dezi lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

          (Dezi meows from behind mommy’s sitting chair as the lawn crew is quiet and must be on a break) Me agrees Raena. Me just doesn’t unnerstand why things happen the way they do?. (Hearing the lawn crew start up again, Dezi runs back UTB and meows over her shoulder) Why don’t you give mommy some extra luvvin’ Raena. Me will take over when the lawn crew leaves.

 

Raena lays in mommy's lap and gets loving

Ain’t nuffin’ better than mommy luvvin’.

 

 

I’s will sissy. But, you really need to get a grip. The lawn crew can’t get to you. You know mommy would never let anypawdy or anythin’ hurt you. I’s gonna go get some mommy luvvin’ now. When you decide to come out from UTB, maybe we can play.

 

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

Blest Sunday: We’ve Missed You & We’re Back

Hey Raena, come on, it’s time fur our Blest Sunday posty.

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

          Are you sure sissy? You know, mommy’s been confused ‘bout what day it is fur the last few days now. Kind’a like we get on the silvervine we had the other day.

 

 

 Dezi with silvervine on cat tree

 

Yeah, me knows, Raena. But, mommy checked all the things she normally does when she passes out and it’s fur sure Blest Sunday. Now, hurry, we don’t wanna miss church. 

 

 Raena with silvervine on cat tree

 

          I’s comin’ sissy. Ya’ know, I’s really missed all our catputer time and visitin’ with our furiends these last couple of weeks, but, I’s gotta tell ya’ spendin’ extra time with mommy has been great. 

 

 Dezi with silvervine on the cat tree

 

Me knows what ya’ mean Raena. Ya’ know, one might think that since mommy’s home all the time, we get lots of time to ourselves to play with her. But that just ain’t true. There’s the catputer time of writin’ and researchin’ fur our postys, helpin’ us visit our furiends, doin’ the regular every day cleanin’ that one has to do to keep from livin’ in a pig sty. Not that there’s anythin’ wrong with livin’ in a pig sty…ifin you’re a pig; but ya’ know, us kitties like things a bit more tidy. And there’s the business stuffs that seems never endin’, and of course there’s the passin’ out time, that mommy spends unconscious every day. So, it really isn’t play time all day, every day. 

 

 Raena with silvervine on cat tree

 

          So true, sissy. But, all in all, we are very blest to have the lives we have. Even with all those things happenin’, mommy still makes time to spend with us and with each of us by ourselves each day. Still, it has been fun these last couple of weeks.

 

 Dezi with silvervine on the cat tree

 

Yep, sure ‘nuff. But, mommy has purromissed that startin’ this week, we’re gonna get back to business as usual. We wanna fank all our amazin’ furiends fur their luv, suppurrt and patience while mommy’s been goin’ thru all this dental stuffs. It was a little more traumatic than mommy had originally anticipated, and she’s not 100% yet. But, she is doin’ well and getting’ better every day. She’s back on the smashed tater diet, with some added cheese fur much needed protein to stay strong. Mommy even said she doesn’t mind the taters so much, she just can’t wait fur the day when she can actually bite and chew somethin’ again. And she’s even purromissed fotos, once she’s healed and all the swellin’ has gone down.

 

 Raena with silvervine on cat tree

 

          Now that’s somethin’, sissy. We all know how rare fotos of mommy are. She luvs pointin’ the flashy box at us, but herself? That’s another matter all together. MOL  I’s gonna be happy to get back to visitin’ all our furiends tho’. I’s sure hope we haven’t missed too much. We are blest to have the bestest furiends ever. We better wrap this up, church is ‘bout to start.

 

 Raena with silvervine on cat tree

 

You’re right Raena. Furst, we wanna remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. Ya’ know when ya’ start your day with a smile and a fanks, the whole day goes a little bit better. And, even tho’ we don’t really do selfies, we’re joinin’ the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. We hope you enjoyed our day with the silvervine, we sure did. MOL  Me’s gotta go now. We’ll see you all soon.

 

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