Chatting Cats: Raena’s Non Negotiable And A Q & A

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s don’t like it when mommy’s stressed out. Do you know she passed out last night while we were in the middle of typin’ a comment to one of our furiends? Ifin that wasn’t bad enuff, no sooner did she come too, then she fell asleep right there in the sittin’ chair. Yep, mouth open, droolin’, snorin’ and all. She’s s’posed to come to the bed so we can give her a massage and snuggle up next to her. There’s not much room fur snugglin’ in the sittin’ chair. I’s don’t like it, I’s tell ya’, I’s just don’t.

          Raena, me’s not sure mommy was actually droolin’, me’s purretty sure that was me. 

 

Really sissy? Why would you be droolin’? It makes everythin’ all slobbery and wet. The sittin’ chair’s already got limited space and now you go and slobber all over it. Anyways…I’s just want things to get back to normal ‘round here. I’s need mine’s cuddle time with mommy, it’s a non-negotiable. She purromissed when she saved me that we’d always cuddle and I’s don’t want that to change. 

 

          Non-Negotiable Raena? Where’d you come up with that one?

From the teevee sissy. The show we watched the other day was askin’ peeps what non-negotiables they had fur their pawrtners. Mommy said that it meant what things they had to have or wouldn’t put up with. So, cuddlin’ is mine’s non-negotiable. 

 

 

          Well Raena, it also means that ifin you don’t get your non-negotiable, you won’t be stayin’ in that relationship. Are you ready to pack up and move out? 

 

Leave mommy? ‘Course not!!! I’s would never leave mommy, and she purromissed she’d never leave me.

 

Dezi lays on cat tree with mouth open and eyes shut

 

 

 

          Well then, it’s not really a non-negotiable Raena. Maybe befur you go throwin’ ‘round human phrases, you need to know ‘zactly what they mean. Better yet, maybe you should quit watchin’ so much teevee. You’re startin’ to sound like those latch key kids that spend all their time in front of the boob tube or playin’ catputer games ‘stead of enjoyin’ life and the company of others. Ya’ know, we’ve got great nature teevee right out the front door you could watch. 

 

That’s just a bunch of re-runs sissy. The same ole peeps doin’ the same ole things every day. It’s done gone and got too hot fur the birdies to do much other than hang out on the tree branches in the shade. I’s not seen one bunny in like, furever. No ducks or geese, Y, even the woofies are stayin’ inside, so what’s so great ‘bout nature teevee these days?

          Well Raena, all me knows is that all that nonsense on human teevee isn’t good fur us kitties. Anyways, our furiend CK purrposed some innerview questions fur us the other day, so why don’t we take a minute and answer ‘em? 

 

Okay sissy, that sounds like fun.

 

     1. When did something start out badly for you, but in the end it was great?

          Well, me thinks me can answer fur both of us on this one, Raena. Neither of us had a very good start in life. But since we met mommy, it couldn’t get any better.

     2. What weird food combinations do you enjoy?

I’s can meow fur both of us on this one sissy. We don’t really eat combo foods. We like rabbit bestest. 

 

     3. What food have you never eaten but would like to try? 

     Me’s got this one Raena. Filet Mignon. Sis Lexi used to meow ‘bout it all the time. She said mommy brought some home once when she had a date and it just melted in her mouth. 

 

A date, sissy? Our mommy went on a date? 

 

          Another time Raena. Let’s get back to the questions. 

 

Dezi eating Bonito flakes

 

 

 

     4. What food is delicious, but a pain to eat? 

Mine’s turn sissy. I’s gotta say those bonito flakes take some getting’ used too. 

 

     5. What’s the most expensive thing you’ve ever broken?

          Me will answer, Raena. After all, you’re the one who broke our furst stroller. 

 

Raena sits pretty on the Liberty cat tree

I’s purrfection purrsonified. MOL

 

 

 

     6. What would a world populated by clones of you be like? 

Hmmmpht Mommy said your big hiney had already broken it sissy. Anyways, a world full of clones of me? I’s an original and there could never be a copy equal to mine’s purrfection. 

 

     7. What smartfone feature would you be excited for a company to implement? 

          Who’s the laff a minute now Raena? Since we can’t actually use a smartfone we’d like to see a way fur kitties to actually get into ‘em. We could take compurrmisin’ fotos of mommy then. Me bets we’d get lots of treats in exchange fur not postin’ ’em. MOL 

 

     8. What’s something people don’t worry about but should?

I’s don’t care anythin’ ‘bout the smartfone sissy. As fur what humans should worry ‘bout, who knows? I’s just a kitty and mommy says kitties shouldn’t worry ‘bout human stuffs.  

 

     9. What was cool when you were young, but isn’t cool now? 

          Y, everythin’ ‘bout me will always be cool. Raena on the other paw…

 

     10. If magic was real, what spell would you cast first?

We don’t purrticipate in spells and such. Bein’ Christians, we don’t believe in deception.

     11. What’s the most comfortable bed or chair you’ve ever been in?

          Me can answer this one fur both of us too, Raena. That’s so easy, mommy’s lap. Mommy’s lap is the most coveted seat in the house.

It sure is sissy. I’s think I’s gonna head there now. Fanky fanks fur the questions CK, we always luv learnin’ more ‘bout our furiends. Ifin you wanna purrticipate, just link back to CK’s bloggy. These kinds of things are always so much fun when lots of bloggers get in on the action.

Chatting Cats: Is Someone Baking In The Bathroom

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. Can I’s just tell you, it’s really smokin’ hot here. Seriously, it’s been in the triple digits as mommy calls it. Y, It’s gonna be at least 110° F today. Mommy says that’s so hot you could fry an egg on the hood of a car in the shade…ifin ya’ had an egg and a shade that is. 

 

Dezi and Raena lay on the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          Raena, are you meowin’ stories again? Me doesn’t ‘member hearin’ mommy say anythin’ like that. 

 

Well sissy, maybe that’s cuz you were UTB (under the bed) hidin’ out from the lawn crew. 

 

          How many times does me have to tell ya’, me’s not hidin’ out. Me’s pawtrolin’ fur intruders. Anyways, enuff ‘bout all that, it’s hot every where right now. Haven’t you seen our furiends complainin’ ‘bout unseasonably hot temps where they live? 

 

Raena lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

Yep sissy, I’s have seen that. Still, I’s wanted to meowmble. Mommy says that no matter what the weather is, we’re gonna complain, so I’s just gettin’ mine’s complainin’ in fur today since we’re still in a state of limbo as far as everythin’ else is concerned. Ya’ know, we’re s’posed to meow ‘bout litter and the pawtty box today. I’s don’t know why, since you seem to be usin’ the piddle pads more and more lately. What’s wrong with you? Are you sick, or mad, or are you just tryin’ to create more work fur mommy? Huh, what’s up with ya’? 

 

Dezi sits on a Chewy box

 

 

 

          Never you mind Raena. Let’s do meow ‘bout litter and pawtty boxes. Everypawdy knows, mommy purrfurs natural litters fur us and we, bein’ cats, purrfur the unscented variety. And, most everypawdy knows, we were Blest with a Litter Robot last Christmas which you think is the greatest thing since sliced rabbit with gravy. ‘Course, mommy knowin’ the rules and all kept our great corner box up and runnin’ too. Ya’ know, just in case there was a line to the pawtty box one meownin’. The thing mommy luvved ‘bout the Litter Robot was that we could still use our favorite natural litter, SwheatScoop.

 

Raena sniffs the bag of Swheatsciip

 

 

 

Yep sissy, I’s too young to ‘member such things, but mommy says she ‘members when SwheatScoop furst came out and she had to order directly from the company. Back then it came in generic brown boxes and the shippin’ costed more than the litter itself. There were only 2 sizes, big and bigger. Anyways, lots of time has passed since then and SwheatScoop now comes in their very own bags and several different sizes, 10lb, 25lb and 36lb; we received the 10lb bag. They even have a couple of different furmulas, Fast Clumping and Multi-Cat. They range in price from $9.69 to $24.99. Let’s see what Chewy has to say:

Description

Fill your litter box with sWheat Scoop Premium+ Natural Clumping Wheat Cat Litter, an all-around better litter. It uses the power of natural plant extracts to eliminate odors instead of harmful chemicals, which is better for you, your pet and the environment. The secret is exclusive Noble Ion Technology that infuses wheat enzymes with noble ions to neutralize litter box odors. It’s extremely effective odor control. This high-performing litter has no added dyes, perfumes or dust and is 100% biodegradable. Clumps are fast-forming, firm and compact for easy scooping. sWheat Scoop Premium+ works well for single- or multiple-cat homes.

Key Benefits

  • Three times more powerful odor control for a breakthrough in odor elimination.
  • Three times faster and firmer clumping for easy scooping and a mess-free home.
  • Noble Ion Technology infuses wheat ions with noble ions to naturally break down odors.
  • Recommended by veterinarians with no added dyes or perfumes. Great for single and multi-cat homes.
  • Eco-friendly, all-natural litter is made from wheat and is 100% biodegradable.

          We purrsonally don’t think there’s much of a difference t’ween the furmulas ifin any, so we always buy whichever furmula’s on sale or the cheapest at the time. Some of mommy’s favorite features of sWheatScoop is that it clumps well, only smells when heated by a fresh urine depawsit and is flushable. That heated smell we’re meowin’ ‘bout is like a loaf of bread and goes away quickly. So long as kitty covers their business, it controls odors very well. Me will tell ya’, it’s not a lightweight litter. The bigger bags are heavy, so bein’ able to have it delivered right to our door is a big plus. Now, ifin we could only get the Fedex man to scoop. MOL

the white stuffs just a little baby powder mommy shook in there to aid in odor

control. She scooped the smelly right when it happened, so the smell lingered a minute.

 

 

You’re a laff a minute today sissy. I’s like the sWheatScoop litter. Since It’s all natural, it’s much safer fur me to clean off ifin it gets stuck to mine’s bloomers. Bein’ wheat, an actual food product, anythin’ that makes it into mine’s tummy by accident, just comes out the other end. ‘Course, ifin you’re ‘lergic to wheat, it might be a purroblem…just meowin’. I’s not, so I’s give the sWheatScoop 4 paws up. What ‘bout you sissy?

          Me fur sure likes it better than any of that clay stuffs Raena. Me gives it 4 paws up too. And, cuz we buy the big bags, we always get a great size Chewy box to play in. Me knows mommy gives 2 thumbs up or she wouldn’t keep orderin’ it after all these years. Meowin’ of orderin’, Chewy’s a great place to shop fur all your pet’s needs. They offur speedy furee shippin’ on all orders $49.00 and up and a low flat rate speedy shippin’ on all orders below. They have a great auto ship program that lets you save an additional 5% and makes sure you never run out of your pet’s faves. But don’t worry, you can always skip, cancel or delay any auto ship up to 24 hours befur shipment.

Nice little clump, easy for scooping

 

Disclaimer: We received a bag of sWheatScoop in exchange for our honest opinion. As always, we tell it like we see it and only bring products we use or have tried and believe would be of interest to you, our readers and friends.

That’s right sissy, and they have the bestest Customer Service peeps ‘round. They also have great boxes and packin’ paper…just meowin’. Ya’ know, that means a new toy every month. MOL Guess we better get off here and see ifin we can help mommy. She’s still purretty stressed, so we’re tryin’ to take really good care of her.

Blest Sunday: Furever Thankful


Dezi:  MeOW  C’mon Raena, it’s time fur Blest Sunday. You can finish eatin’ brekky in a minute.

          RaenaYou meow that sissy, but the minute I’s walk away, you’ll be movin’ in on mine’s plate and tryin’ to chow it down. Besides with the mess we’ve got goin’ on ‘round here, I’s wasn’t sure we had any Blessings to count this week.

 

Dezi plays on scratcher

 

 

 

RaenaBelle!!! Bite your tongue!!! Besides, me never steals your food…(Dezi mumbles slyly.) Least not while mommy’s lookin’.

 

          No, sissy!!! That would hurt. And, you do it all the time. Mommy’s always tellin’ you to get outta mine’s plate.

 

Dezi lays on the liberty cat tree while Raena lays on the small perch and looks out the door

 

 

 

(Dezi shakes her head)  Purrlease Raena, it’s just a figger of speech. We have purrlenty of Blessings to count, no matter what’s goin’ on ‘round here. We have the bestest most pawsumest furiends in the universe. And, we have a mommy that luvs us more than anythin’ else in the afur mentioned universe. We’ve found our furevers Raena. No matter what, mommy will never ever leave us or throw us away. Mommy says that altho’ it’s been a while, this wouldn’t be the furst time she’s had to live in her car and Shad never left her side or went hungry. Ifin you’d like to read that story you can do so here. Besides, mommy says we’re not out on the streets just yet. 

 

Raena plays with the jitterbug whole heartedly

I’s luvs mine’s toys too.

 

 

 

          You’re right sissy. I’s luvs our furiends. And I’s luvs mommy soooooo much. I’s never doubted that she’d be there fur us no matter what. And, her new dentists’ ‘pointments are movin’ along nicely. This week she’ll be tryin’ out a wax form with teethies in it. And, the doctor’s been the one doin’ the work. There’s always an assistant in the room, but Dr. Collier’s seen mommy and made all the impurrsions and adjustments at each ‘pointment. Y, She’s so x’perienced at dentures, one of the other doctors even came and asked her advice last week. It made mommy feel really good and like she’s furinally in good hands. 

 

Dezi stands atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

Yep Raena, me’s so happy ‘bout that. Mommy said Dr. Collier’s really nice and she even believes in rescue. She has two rescued woofies and the rest of her furmily has woofies and kitties that they’ve rescued too. We think it was her sisfur that adopted a stray kitty what came to her house lookin’ fur food and shelter. We always get x’cited when we hear stories ‘bout some kitty or woofy findin’ their purrfect furever. 

 

Raena lays on the bottom ledge of the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          So true sissy, so true. Ya’ know, we might not always get along like peas in a pod, but I’s wouldn’t want any other sisfur or mommy. I’s thinkin’ mine’s life is purretty close to purrfect. So, that means you’re right ‘bout the Blessings too. I’s got purrlenty to give fanky fanks fur. I’s got so much luvs that sometimes mine’s heart feels like it could explode. And, I’s got a full belleh with some of the tastiest noms on the planet. 

 

Hmmmmm Really Raena? So does that mean you’re thru with your brekky?

 

Dezi eats Raena's left overs

Since Raena’s belly’s so full, she won’t mind ifin me just

finishes off this little bit she left.

 

 

 

          Nope sissy, that doesn’t mean you can eat outta mine’s plate. I’s might wanna go back fur another bite in a minute. You know I’s have to check out what’s goin’ on outside. Ifin I’s just stayed with mine’s head down in mine’s plate, I’s might miss somethin’. Y, I’s saw all kinds of things this meownin’. I’s saw a few birdies, a gnat, a moth…(While Raena rambles on, Dezi sneaks over to her breakfast plate and eats a few bites. Raena looks back from the perch at the door to see Dezi eating the last few bites of her breakfast…)  Sissy!!! Get outta mine’s plate or I’s gonna tell mommy. 

 

What? You meowed your belly was full?. Anyways, let’s wrap this up and give mommy some extra luvvin’. Me knows she could sure use some. 

 

Dezi lays on liberty cat tree and Raena lays on perch looking out the door

Nope, this ain’t our selfie, that’s above. MOL

 

 

 

          Great idea sissy. Befur we go we gotta link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies

 

 

Fanks Raena. We’d also like to remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your life. No matter what may be happenin’ around you, each day you wake up and take a breath, is a Blessing. Fank you all fur bein’ a pawrt of our lives. 

 

 

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