Chatting Cats: A Gooey Lounge Play Date

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. You’re never gonna guess who came over fur a play date. Look’it, It’s the beautiful ginger Annie and her handsum smart eared brofur Pierrot from the Gooey Lounge. We’re so glad ya’ll could paw over fur a play date.

 

Dezi, Annie, and Pierrot lay on the floor

          Dezi: We sure are. Kittens!!! Raena never stops. Me hears you like to romp and play too, Pierrot.

 

     Pierrot: I sure do. I love to play and run. (Raena and Pierrot start zooming down the hall, leaving Dezi and Annie sitting in the chair

 

          Dezi: (Shakes head) Young’un’s!!! Well, maybe those two will tire each other out. Me’s glad we’ve got a few minutes to ourselves. We just luv ya’ll, even tho’ we haven’t known ya’ that long. Me knows we have lots of furiends that’s never even met ya’, so why don’t you tell us a little ‘bout ya’ll. 

 

 Dezi lays on arm of chair while Annie lays in chair

 

 

 

     Annie: Thanks Dezi, and thanks for inviting us over. I’m an 11 year old orange tabby and I came to live with the lady and big guy, that’s what we call our mom and dad; 6 years ago. My previous owners were moving and going to put me in a shelter back in California. I was so very scared at first. It broke the lady’s heart to see how terrified I was.

 

          Dezi: Mommy’s…they luv us so much don’t they?

 

     Annie: At first I wasn’t so sure. But with a lot of changes, I’m very happy and comfortable in my home now. I love the lady and big guy so much. You know, they saved my life, I just know it.

          Dezi: Girl, we are two of the blestest kitties ever. We’ve got the bestest pawrents in the universe. Give me the low down on Pierrot. We just luv his little ears. We think they give him so much purrsonality. 

 

     Annie: He’s got personality to spare then. Pierrot’s 5 years old and 3 years ago the lady and big guy just thought they had to have him. They adopted him from Save the Cats, a local animal rescue that fosters homeless kitties. Really, he’s not that bad. And, a year earlier the big guy had lost his beloved Simba and really needed a new friend. I guess it’s really nice that they saved Pierrot. I’m used to him now. I’m sure you know all about that. MOL

          Dezi: Me sure does. At least we have humans with purrlenty of luv to share. How did ya’ll start bloggin’?

 

     Annie: Pierrot and I actually inherited the blog. The lady started blogging back in 2009 for her then kitty Lucy. Of course Simba made a few guest appearances, and then came me and finally Pierrot. The lady had wanted to meet some kitties and people who love cats to share stories and photos with. 

 

Raena: (Raena and Pierrot run through and zoom up the Liberty cat tree) Hey, ya’ll come over here with us. We purromiss not to whacky paw anykitty. 

 

 Dezi, Raena, Annie and Pierrot lay on the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

     Annie: I don’t think I can climb up there, my first people had my claws removed. And sometimes my short back legs don’t work just right. 

 

 

Raena: No worries gawjus. Just give mommy “the look”, she’ll help ya’ up and down all day long. She’s the bestest. (Mommy A helps Annie on the tree and gives them all some treats Annie and Pierrot had brought with them) Fanky fanks fur the treats ya’ll, they’re yummy. What kinds of things do ya’ll like to do at home?

 

 

 Dezi, Raena, Annie and Pierrot lay on the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

     Annie: I love cozy blankets and sun puddles. We both do really. One of my favorite things is spending the evenings with the lady while she reads or watches teevee. She gives me belly rubs and chin scritches and I just purr and purr. I also love grass with a passion. Sometimes the lady grows me a fresh pot. The lady works from home and sometimes takes short breaks just to spend time with me. I guess you girls are right, we really are the most blest kitties ever. I also like to play with catnip toys. Of course, not too many cats don’t right? 

 

     Pierrot: I Love catnip toys too, Annie. And balls and mousies, and well just about everything.

 

Raena: Me too Pierrot, me too. 

 

 Raena and Annie lay on the Liberty Cat tree

 

 

 

     Annie: Well, we better get back home if I’m going to spend the evening with the lady. We sure do appreciate your kind hospitality and friendship.

 

          Dezi: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaw Fanks. We luv ya’ll too. We’re really glad to be your furiends. Give the lady and the big guy some purrs from us and come back anytime. 

 

The Blessing Train

Raena: Sissy, we have the bestest furiends in the universe. Ya’ know what else we need to do today? We need to pick our Blessin’ fur the Blessing Train. Hearin’ ‘bout Annie and Pierrot’s adoptions and thinkin’ ‘bout our own, I’s say today’s Blessin’ is Luvvin’ Furever Homes. ‘Member, you too can hop on the Blessin’ Train fur our 12 Days of Blessings.

Service Cats: Litterboxes, Litter and Feline Urinary Habits

MeOW Welcome to a brand new Service Cat Monday. We’re really behind today, but we think when ya’ get to the end, you’ll furgive us. We have quite a few questions regarding the wheelchair that we’re holding until the new chair gets here. In the meantime, we’re runnin’ low on your other questions. ‘Member, the only dumb question, is the one that’s not asked. Everypawdy can’t be a seasoned pet pawrent; ya’ have to start somewhere. So ask us anythin’ and we’ll do our bestest to help out. We’re tacklin’ a good one today. Let’s get the business outta the way and get to it. The followin’ post will be written in human English fur reader and translator ease. Our Service Cat Monday posts aren’t intended to be an all inclusive Trainin’ Manual but rather Tips, Tricks and Techniques used/developed by mommy A thru her many years of animal trainin’, cats in purrticular. And to offur insight into your questions about Feline Behavior. Ifin you have any questions or topics you would like us to cover, purrlease let us know in the comments section or send us an email. When asking behavioral questions, purrlease be as specific as pawssible. And, ifin you’ve missed any of the posts in this series, you can ketch up by clickin’ the links at the end of this post. Always remember, Training is all ‘bout Repetition and Rewards.

So, what’s the hot topic today that every kitty pawrent wouldn’t want to miss? Well, every living being on the planet has 4 basic functions they must do in order to survive: Eat, Drink, Sleep and Eliminate (urinate and defecate). Today, we’re going to focus on kitty’s need to Eliminate. We call this a hot topic because inappropriate Elimination has been the cause of so many kitties losing their furever homes. Problems arising from kitty’s inability to Eliminate can lead to illness and even death. And as every inside only kitty parent would probably say, the litter box is the least favorite part of being owned by a cat. But, it’s necessary. The litterbox isn’t something you or your kitty can live without. Now we know that some have trained kitty to use the human toilet, and some have kitties that go outdoors, but, ideally kitty should have access to a clean litterbox to use for their Elimination needs.

 

 Dezi sits on toilet

Me’s not usin’ this thing. Me wants a real box.

 

 

We’re not going to spend much time on the alternatives, but we would like to quickly address kitties using the human toilet. As we prove each week with our Service Cat Monday posts, cats are extremely intelligent, but even cats have limitations. Mommy had once thought teaching kitty to use the toilet would be wonderful. However, watching sis Lexi’s mobility and balance decline over the last year of her life has totally changed her mind. We Do Not recommend toilet training any cat.

 

 Open Litterboxes

 

 

 

So, whether you have a new kitty, one kitty or ten (or more), you’re going to need a litterbox. The rule of thumb is 1 box and a spare for each cat in your home. As most people with one or two cats will likely tell you, they’re getting by with just 1 box. But, be aware, the fewer boxes you have the greater chance you have of inappropriate Eliminating. Now, we’ll get back to choosing the right box in a minute. We’d like to talk Litter for a minute.

With all the different types of litter on the market, it can be confusing. Especially to the novice cat owner. But, even long time cat owners can get overwhelmed at times. To Clump or not to clump, that is the question. If only it were that simple. But, that is the first question you need to ask yourself. We prefer Clumping. Mommy says she can’t even remember the day of non clumping litters and is thankful for that memory loss. MOL The next question you might ask is, natural or not? The truth is, clay is just as natural as corn, wheat or grass. The difference is how it reacts in the litterbox and inside kitty’s tummy. Make no mistake, kitty is getting some litter in their mouths. And just about anything that goes into kitty’s mouth is going down their throats, due to the nature of their tongue barbs. (we’ll cover that in another post if you’d like). Cats are such fastidious groomers, that anything left on our furs or between our paw pads is going to get licked and may be ingested. Here is where the natural difference comes in. Clay and it’s clumping additives are not naturally edible and don’t easily pass thru kitty’s intestines. Instead they do inside kitty the same as they do in the litterbox…form clumps and cause blockages. While there may be little nutritional value to corn or wheat in a cat food, it can certainly pass thru the intestines with ease.

The next question to ask is, Scented or Unscented?. The smell of cat urine is like pouring a bottle of amonia in a bowl. It can quickly cause burning eyes, burning and/or itching in the nose and throat and just plain be unpleasant. Many litters on the market add things like perfumes, baking soda and other scented additives to make the litter smell more pleasing to the human nose. Notice me said human nose. When was the last time you saw a kitty of any size looking for the closest lavender field to urinate in? Kitties have very sensitive olfactory senses (noses). We kitties prefer a totally Unscented place to Eliminate. Remember, cats are both Predators and Prey; and anything that draws attention to us could in our minds put us at risk of becoming something bigger’s meal. And hey, if you’re scooping like you should be, there shouldn’t be any lasting smells. (we’ve only posted a few different types of litter. there are many many more to choose from)

Another thing we’d like to bring your awareness too is Litters/Additives that can help one keep an eye on kitty’s urinary health. In recent years crystal type litters have gained popularity due to their lack of color or color changing crystal additives. These help humans identify Urine pH levels or blood in the urine easier. We’ll tell you that for this reason, we really like the Garfield Cat Litter. It’s completely clear, clumps well and keeps down odors naturally. It has minimal dust and a texture most cats like. It comes in two formulas, small grain and large grain. We prefer the small grain, as it’s very soft and easy on the paws. It feels a lot like sand. We think it would work great for older, paw sensitive and declawed cats. (PLEASE Do Not Declaw your cats!!!). Stay tuned at the end of this post, we’re giving away a couple of 10 pound bags.

 

 Raena looking at the Garfield cat litter

 

 

 

Let’s talk about scooping for a minute. No matter how many cats and/or litterboxes you have, you should scoop the litterbox at least once a day. Me personally, thinks it should be scooped every time a deposit is made. Yes, mommy spoiled me and me never grew out of it. But, one day when she was mumbling about scooping so me could go poop, me had just peed and so the box must be cleaned ASAP; she thought to herself, “I wouldn’t want to use a potty that hadn’t been flushed after the last use so really…why would I expect my girls to use a dirty potty?.” When ya’ put it that way, it makes total sense. She doesn’t mumble as much anymore. MOL   Anyways, for the rest of the world, we say at the very least, once a day. The cleaner the box, the less chance you’ll have of Inappropriate Elimination. Remember, us cats really like clean.

 

Hooded and High Sided Litter boxes

So, you’ve chosen a litter and are ready to go. How do you pick a litterbox? The box you choose must be large enough to accommodate kitty. Most kitties are going to want to turn around a time or two, dig a little and then pick a spot and squat. Of course there are the kitties who forget to squat. If you have one of those, be sure to look for a box with high sides or maybe a lid. Just be sure the lid is large enough for kitty to be able to stand up straight in. If you’re using an enclosed litterbox, regular scooping becomes even more important. Most of the smell is trapped under the lid. We shouldn’t have to explain walking into a stinky bathroom, we think most everybody already knows about that one. You may also want to look into an automatic litterbox. They’ve come a long way in the last few years. Stay tuned, we’ll be giving you the scoop on our pick next week. The last step is to place kitty’s litterbox in a quiet place with easy access in and out. You don’t want kitty to feel trapped or cornered.

Hmmmmm I’s don’t know sissy, what do you think?

 

 

 

So, you’ve done everything right. The box is the perfect size, you chose the best unscented litter with a texture kitty loves and placed it in a quiet location, but kitty’s still Inappropriately Eliminating. Here are a few tips to get kitty and their pee and poop back in the box where it belongs. Do Not Punish kitty!!! Remember, all successful Training is about Positive Reinforcement, Repetition and Rewards. First things first. Clean the area well with an odor neutralizing cleaner. You don’t want to mask the odor, but eliminate it altogether. Take kitty to the VET to rule out any medical reasons such as Urinary Tract Infections, Kidney or Bladder Stones, etc. If kitty gets an all clear, try placing a litterbox over the area kitty is using temporarily to entice kitty to use it. Sprinkle a litter attractant, catnip, silvervine or valerian on the litter and the lip of the litterbox. If you see kitty start to use the floor, say in a firm voice, “NO” and move kitty to the litterbox. Each time you see kitty use the box, praise them and reward them with hugs or treats. Always set kitty up for success and you’ll have a much happier home. Remember, you might like the scent of all those scented litters, but you’re not the one trapped inside a small enclosure with them. The litterbox should be attractive to kitty, not necessarily you.

          Well sissy, with all the cleanin’ mommy’s been doin’, there’s lots of stuffs to see. Why do ya’ reckon mommy’s doin’ all this?

 

Me thinks it has somethin’ to do with the box she got fur her review. She says the jury’s still out. Me’s not sure what that means, but me thinks we’re in fur more cleanin’. MOL

 

 Dezi and Raena look out the door and window from their perch on the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          I’s think you’re right sissy. I’s hope she takes a few breaks and takes us fur some strolls. The sun’s been shinin’ really bright, and mommy says he’s s’posed to be here fur a few more days. I’s so luvs goin’ fur strolls with mommy.

 

Dezi gets loving while laying on the chair arm

 

 

Me does too Raena. We’re so blest to have a mommy who luvs us so much. Ya’ know Raena, me’s been thinkin’ a lot ‘bout what we could do to make this Christmas season special. A lot of our furiends are doin’ stuffs with these advent calendars, and others are sharin’ their traditions. We don’t know anythin’ ‘bout those advent thingys, and we don’t keep a lot of the traditional traditions. So, me thought we could do a 12 Days of Blessings. Anypawdy who knows us, knows we’re all ‘bout the blessings.

 

 Raena gets loving while laying in mommy's lap and squints for the camera

 

 

 

          That’s true sissy. We’ll find the blessin’ in the middle of the storm. I’s think 12 Days of Blessings is a great idea. Ifin we start today and post a Blessing with each post, we’ll finish up on December 22nd. Just in time fur the Christmas holiday festivities. The only purroblem I’s can see with this, is only listin’ one blessin’. Bein’ such blest kitties, how are we gonna decide which blessin’ to list?

 

Well Raena, we don’t have to limit it to one blessing. After all, it’s our idea, so we can make or break the rules. Maybe all of our furiends will hop on the Blessin’ Train and post their 12 Days of Blessings too. We’re not startin’ a regular blog hop, but we think everypawdy would enjoy stoppin’ fur just a minute durin’ this busy time and seein’ a Blessing every day.

The Blessing Train is headin’ your way. Grab him and a

boxcar and hop on to share.

 

 

          That’s a pawsum idea, sissy. Just grab the Blessing Train image and post your Blessings fur 12 days. Doesn’t matter what days you post, everypawdy can purrticipate. And, ifin ya’ send a pingback to our postys or a link in the comments, everypawdy else will be able to come and share your Blessings with ya’. Ya’ know Blessings multiply when ya’ share ‘em.

          Well Raena, me’s not so sure ‘bout the halls, but we are feelin’ that Christmas spirit. And, we’re gonna have a play date next Wednesday to celebrate. Mommy’s purromissed to put up the Christmas tree and all the lights so our guests can enjoy ‘em too. We know everypawdy’s gonna wanna stop by to see who’s comin’ over.

 

 Raena, bathes her neck ruff

I’s better clean up. Did ya’ ever feel ya’ might have too much fur?

 

 

 

I’s really x’cited sissy. I’s hear one of our guests luvs to play. Since you can be an old fuddy duddy, it’ll be nice to have somekitty to romp with. 

 

          Me’s no fuddy duddy Raena. You just don’t have an off button. Ya’ know, sometimes me would just like to take a nap. Ya’ don’t have to play all the time. 

 

Raena chats from the boxbed with mouth open

Yes I’s do, sissy. Mommy’s always sayin’ life’s too short, we’ve gotta make the most of it. I’s don’t wanna miss a minute of play time. 

 

Dezi profile as she lays in mommy's lap getting love

          Me thinks ya’ got it a little mixed up, Raena. Mommy always says that when she’s luvvin; on us. She says she doesn’t wanna miss the oppurr-tunity to hold us and let us know how much we’re luvved. 

 

 Raena gets love while laying in mommy's lap

 

 

 

Like we could ever furget that, sissy. Mommy must luvs on us a hunnert million gazillion times a day. But, I’s wouldn’t want her to stop. I’s sure luvs getting’ luvvin’ from mommy. Did mommy tell ya’ we’re gonna have a Christmas Gift List next week? We’re gonna get to feature some our favorite purroducts that would make pawsum gifts fur all the furries and their peeps.

 

Dezi checks out litter robot from the insideThis is one strange box.

 

 

          Me knows. It’s gonna be great. We’ll be showin’ stuffs in just ‘bout every purrice range. We even have a give away fur one of our favorites. And, Service Cat Monday, we’re gonna be meowin’ ‘bout one of a kitties basic needs. Anypawdy who has a kitty is gonna wanna stop by. 

 

Hey sissy, even mommy’s gonna get in on the reviewin’ this month. She hardly ever gets to review anythin’, so we’re really x’cited ‘bout this.

 

          You’re right Raena. Me can’t even ‘member the last time mommy got somethin’ to review. She says it’s okay tho’. She says it makes her happy to see us get new stuffs.

 

 Raena lays in liberty cat tree cubby

 

 

 

She does at that sissy. But, I’s think she says it cuz that’s what mommy’s are s’posed to say. I’s know she gets really x’cited when she gets new stuffs too. Anyways, it’s linin’ up to be a busy month fur us, that’s fur sure. 

 

          You’re right ‘bout that, Raena. We better get off here and help mommy get the Christmas tree outta the closet. Did you ever get inside the other day when mommy dragged out the leaf blower?

 

I’s not made it in there yet, sissy. But I’s ready to try again. I’s been purracticin’ my “sneak by ya’” moves and I’s think today just might be mine’s lucky day.

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.
