Chatting Cats: Scattered Raena Is All Over the Place

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s hope ya’ll had a good week. We had such pawsum weather, you’d’a thought it was Spring time. We’ve really enjoyed these warmer days, but mommy says it means she’s gonna need to get some Bengal outdoor foggers cuz it hasn’t been cold enuff to kill anythin’. Welllllll, mommy’s no killer, so I’s had to ask what she meant. She says we have creepy crawlers, like spiders, scorpions, fleas, ticks and all manner of pests that have multiplied 10 times over this year.

          Me can tell ya’, you don’t want any fleas Raena. Me had those when me was little and almost died.

Oh sissy, they sound pawful.


 Baby Dezi lays in a basket atop a soft bath towel


          They are. And at the time, me was too young fur flea purroducts and the fleas had given me those nasty tape worms too. Of course me was too young fur tape worm medicine too. Fankfully mommy knew what to do and got rid of both those nasties and saved me. And, every year she tries to treat right outside our ‘pawrtment. But this year we’re gonna be needin’ a couple of them Bengal outdoor fogger cans. Mommy swears by the stuffs and says it has a money back guarantee. By the way, we ain’t getting’ paid or nuffin’ free fur sayin’ this. We just know some of ya’ have purroblems with fleas and such, and thought we’d tell ya’ how we treat fur ‘em. 


 Raena lays on top of the Liberty Cat Tree


It’s good ya’ said that sissy, wouldn’t want anypawdy thinkin’ we’s gettin’ paid fur somethin’ we’re not. MOL  We also included the link to their site in case any of ya’ wanna check it out. You can buy most of it at your local feed store or hardware stores.

Anyways, there’s this cool blog hop called Shoppin’ ‘Round the World that pawrently sissy used to purrticipate in. Seems they quit cuz mommy wasn’t goin’ to the grocery stores and didn’t get the ads, so they didn’t know the purrices of stuffs anymore. We really wanted to purrticipate with Sammy and Teddy, so we looked online. But none of our stores have web sites, or ifin they do, they don’t list purrices. Somepawdy mentioned Wally World, but since we don’t have any delivery services, they just say “see your local store fur current purrices”. Altho’ mommy got dumped off at Wally World last week, checkin’ purrices was the last thing on her mind. She totally furgot ‘bout the blog hop. We did get a Family Dollar ad this week, but the only groceries they had on sale was a box of crackers and a can of soup. Nopawdy here eats soup, so we’ll be skippin’ the blog hop. Altho’, we are curious to see the purrices in your areas.



 Dezi sits in a chewy box


          Yep, the only things mommy buys on a regular are our noms, supplements and litter. We can fur sure tell ya’ what they cost. MOL  Mommy says we’re her most ‘spensive bill every month.


That’s true sissy. But she also says she wouldn’t have it any other way.


          You sure are all over the place today Raena.


Raena peaking out of a chewy box

Well sissy, I’s havin’ one of those kind’a days. I’s been in to anythin’ and everythin’ I’s could…And all befur brekky. MOL


          Yeah me knows. Mommy finally told ya’ the more messes you made that she had to clean up, the longer it was gonna be befur we got brekky.


Yeah she did. Who knew? I’s settled down real quick when she said that. She already moves in slow motion. I’s sure didn’t wanna slow her down any more.


          Raena…Don’t make fun of mommy. 


 Dezi and Raena eat


I’s wasn’t makin’ fun sissy. I’s was just meowin’ it like it is.


          Well, ya’ don’t meow everythin’ that pops in your head. Just like ya’ don’t jump on me just cuz me walks by.


But it’s so much fun sissy. Besides, more offen than not, I’s jump over you and not actually on you.


          On, over, semantics. Either way, ya’ shouldn’t do it.


 Dezi checks out the AeroGarden,

The creepy solar bobble Santa was our Christmas gift

from da pawrtment’s management.

I’s’ll think ‘bout it sissy. On another note, the Aerogarden’s doin’ great. Mommy’s getting’ really excited. Looks like it might be another week befur she can harvest enuff fur a salad, but she did pull a leaf off last night and give it a try. She says it was nice and crunchy and tasted delishus. She was so delighted, sissy thought she might try a bite too. Mommy wasn’t very happy ‘bout that. She told us to leave her lettuce alone. Hmmmmpht  Guess it’s back to the grass fur me.

          Befur you confuse everypawdy even more and run off on another subject Raena, let’s wrap this up. We’re linkin’ up with Rascal, Rocco and their pawsum co-hosts fur the weekly Pet Parade Bloghop.

Chatting Cats: Do Cats Get Bored

Meow, What a day we had yesfurday. Lots of hugs and cuddles and luvvin’. We did get on the catputer and visit some, but mommy’s purromissed tomorrow will be all ours. Anyways, it rained and stormed all day yesfurday. And kittens!!! It was cold. Where’d that 90 degree weather go mommy?


Dezi site with her tail wrapped

          Well honey, it is winter time. Altho’ it’s been a crazy winter weather wise, it is still winter. 


 Raena lays in mommy's lap and enjoys some loving


     I’s don’t like winter mommy. Who wants to go strollin’ in the wind, cold and rains? 


          Not me sweetie. That’s why I tried to make sure we had new batteries for all the electronic toys. You’re so full of energy, I want you to have plenty to do. 


 Dezi plays with the frolicat


We purreciate that mommy. Cuz even tho’ we’re inside only kitties, we still get bored and feel cooped up in the winter time. We can only ‘magine how our furiends who do go outside are feelin’. You know, we think all kitties belong inside, and only outside with their human on a leash. But we do have furiends that are allowed to go out by themselves. We don’t know what all they do outside, but we do know it gives them a little break in their day. But with all the cold and some even have snow, it’s way too cold fur man or beast out there. During these times, a kitty can get bored and maybe even act out.


Ya’ know, Raena’s been bouncin’ off the walls…literally. She don’t wanna go outside, but she’s feelin’ a bit bored. She’s been climbin’ and jumpin’ on everythin’. Even a few “off-limits” areas.


 Raena playing with the Pet Safe Flitter


     I’s think you be exaggeratin’ a bit sissy. 


Really Raena? What do you call it when you jump on the door ledge and give mommy a heart attack? 


     Uh Havin’ fun?.


Yeah, That’s not what we call fun.


Well, I’s thought it was sissy. Did you hear the Fedex lady compurr me to that grumpy cat?

     Raena lays on the floor in the meatloaf position


Me did Raena. And me heard mommy tell her you didn’t and that you were anythin’ but grumpy. 


 Cat treats and hersheys kisses


     Fank the cats. Thinkin’ I’s look like some other kitty. Hmmpht  Altho’ she did bring us a Valentines day gift from Purr, Mr. M and awnty Jeanne. We got a jug of treats and mommy got a bag of chocolate kisses. Mommy said Kitty Kisses are the best, but chocolate’s nice too. Fank ya’ll, we really purreciate the gifts.


 Big Texas Cinnamon Rolls

Yep, that’s the dill mommy transferred to a pot ya’

see in the background.


Yep, and awnty Vonda sent mommy some green papers fur a whatever spend. Mommy bought herself a couple of those glazed Big Texas Cinnamon rolls. She says they’re so delishus. We never get a bite, so we wouldn’t know. But mommy also bought us a bag of our favorite freeze dried chicky breasts. We sure do fank ya’ awnty Vonda, we had us a “sweet” Valentines day. And mommy put the rest with her dental fund. 


 Lettuve growing from Aerogarden


     Hey sissy, we oughtta update everypawdy ‘bout da AeroGarden. Looks like mommy’ll be eatin’ salads next week. She “planted” 6 pods of lettuce and 5 are doin’ really well. She’s gotta call the garden peeps ‘bout the one that didn’t sprout, cuz they guarantee ‘em. She did plant us some grass, but the pods are so small, that only a couple blades came up. Looks like it’s back to the dirt fur growin’ us grass. MOL 


 Lettuce growing from AeroGarden


Yep Raena, and me saw her plantin’ up some last night. We’ll be eatin’ grass ‘bout the same time mommy’s eatin’ salads. Anyways, we wanted to remind everypawdy that whether ya’ have indoor only cats or indoor outdoor kitties, we need some extra playtime durin’ these winter months. We get the blues just like humans do. Shorter days and less sun affects us kitties too. So get out that wand toy, or your kitties’ favorite nip or ‘lectric toy and get ‘em runnin’ and exercisin’. They’ll be happier and so will you. Let’s wrap this up Raena and see ‘bout havin’ one of those play sessions befur O gets here. By the way, lots of ya’ thought it was very nice of O to take mommy on her errands. And it is, but It’s also his job. He’s getting’ paid fur it. Gotta go, the wand toy’s callin’ mes name.

Cats Chat: Garden Mews and More

(Mommy A checks the progress of the new AeroGarden and the lettuce pods she had “planted” earlier. Seeing some sprouts, she took the plastic caps off of a few pods and turned to speak to Dezi and Raena who were closely supervising everything.)

 AeroGarden pods close up


          Now girls, I know you both had a good time playing with the last pods we planted. But, this is my lettuce, and I plan to eat all of these when they get big enough. So, leave them alone. You can watch them, and sniff them, but no pullin’ the pods out, and no eating the leaves. Okay?


(Dezi and Raena look at mommy, the garden and then each other.

Raena, did you hear what mommy said? She told you to leave the garden alone. 



 Aerogarden with salad pods


     Uh, I’s heard her mention both of us sissy. Besides, I’s never took a bite outta anythin’, that was you.



Me only took a bite of what mommy said me could. And it wasn’t very tasty, so that doesn’t count. Come on, let’s go play with our toys. It’s so pretty and warm outside, maybe we can talk mommy into a stroll or two.



 Raena rides in stroller


     A stroll? Now that sounds like fun. Is it spring already sissy?


Nope. Me knows it looks and feels like it, what with the weather bein’ in the 80’s on Monday, and high 70’s so far this week, but mommy says that means we’re fixin’ to get hit with some really bad, cold weathers.


     Well at least we’ve got the new ‘lectric blankey.


Yep, we sure are blest.


 Raena looks over from atop the Liberty Cat tree

Can I’s help ya’ there O?


     Hey sissy, did you see that O came back? Mommy was so relieved. They did some kitchen cleanin’ the other day to get ready fur the inspection today. He pulled everythin’ outta one of the kitchen cabinets so mommy could rearrange some stuffs and make it easier fur her to reach that pawsum food awnty Anonymous and awnty Cindy sent her. While he had everythin’ pulled out I’s got in the cabinet to play. I was havin’ me a good ole time. And ya’ know what? O was so nice. He didn’t get mad at me, he just asked me to get out so he could put stuffs back in. He even used mines name. He didn’t pull that ole here kitty kitty nonsense. 


Yep, me heard him Raena. Me’s always wondered what self respectin’ kitty would actualy answer to here kitty kitty. Lessen it’s their name of course. And there ain’t nuffin’ wrong with that, but we’ve been blest with a mommy and names. Me don’t even know what that here kitty kitty means. 


 Raena in tiger kitty holster

     I’s don’t either sissy. Ya’ know, mommy’s case worker used to sit here and holler here kitty kitty all the time. I’s don’t know who she thought she was talkin’ too, cuz nopawdy in our house is named that. Then she’d try to pet me and say things like purretty kitty or good kitty. Hmmpht I’s just always walked off. I’s figgered she had me confused with one of her other peeps kitties, cuz mines name is Raena or RaenaBelle.


Yeah, me knows Raena. That’s one of the reasons me just takes a nap when she’s here. 


Raena in tiger kitty holster cat harness

     Oh sissy, I’s almost furgot. Did you see mines new harness? Awnty Vonda sent mommy some green papers and told her to get me a new harness that would fit cuz I’s outgrew mines furst one. We even got a matchin’ leash. Isn’t it cool? I’s feel like a little tigress in it.


 Dezi checks out Raena in her new harness

Hey Raena, you be lookin’ spiffy in your new harness.

Reckon me could try it on somtime?



Me saw it Raena. It’s made a little on the large side, so mommy says me might even be able to wear it. Me hasn’t tried it on yet, but it is nice. Me really likes the leash too. 


 Raena in tiger kitty holster cat harness


     Mommy says I’s’ll grow into it. It fits purrfectly ‘round the neck, but is a bit loose ‘round mines body. Mommy says I’s long and tall, but I’s’ll fill out in time just like you. I’s sure do fank you awnty Vonda, fur mines new harness and leash. I’s luvs it. We did have to buy it ourselves, but just in case any of ya’ are lookin’ fur a really well made harness fur your cats, ya’ might wanna check out the Kitty Holster. Unlike most harnesses that be made to fit doggies, these are specifically designed with the feline shape in mind. ‘Course they do have some fur doggies, chickens and rabbits too. They even make diapers, and chastity belts. I’s not know what that last one is, but mommy says most peeps will. 


 Raena sits in tiger kitty holster cat harness


Let’s wrap it up Raena. We’ve got that inspection comin’ up today and the exterminator’s comin’ too. And O’s s’posed to be here this afternoon, so it’s gonna be a purretty busy day. And then mommy has her regular monthly doctor’s ‘pointment tomorrow. Things sure are hoppin’ ‘round here, and me doesn’t mean you Raena. Fankfully, you’ve not tried to hit your head on the ceilin’ again fur days now. Mommy’s so happy ‘bout that. MOL  We hope you all have a pawsum day.
