We wanna fank all of ya’ dat worried ’bout us and purrayed fur us. Weez battened down da hatches and stayed in. So weez all okay. Quiet be da Q fur yesfurdays Blogginn’ A to Z challenge. See da challenge has peeps postin’ Monday fwu Caturday wiff Sundays off. But as you all know we always write a Blest Sunday posty, so weez just gunna have to cover 2 letters today. Da Q and da R. We wuz all glad to have sum peace and quiet after all those funder boomers, and mommy sez it wuz nice not to have me meweekin’ all ‘bout ’em. So we did a little visitin’ yesfurday and a little westin’. Now fur da R. And weez gunna tell ya’ all ‘bout a tweat weez got fwum Chewy.com this mumff weview.

Smells good mommy, awe ya’ gunna open it?

APRIL-CALENDAR [2015]

So we got a 3 oz package of EVO Wild Cravings Grain Free Herring and Salmon tweats to twy. Now Evo sez these awe low in cawbs and furee of gwains and packed wiff high quality pwotein. They have a fairly long list of ingwedients wiff herring and salmon up at da top. Dat’s always a good fing, and da purrice be purretty good too. This package wuns wound $3.00. And they be available fur a one time shipment or auto delivewy. We luv Chewy’s auto delivewy purrogwam, it means we don’t have to worry ‘bout wunnin’ out of food or litter or tweats. And ifin we get blest wiff a furiend sendin’ us sumfin’ we can always delay ow auto delivawy. Anyways, back to da tweats.  

 dw Lexi4026

Well after weadin’ ‘bout ‘em and takin’ a kupple fotos, mommy opened da package to give us sum. She took out a kupple pieces fur boff of us as it wuz close to dinner time and mommy didn’t wanna wuin’ ow appetite. So mommy offewed ‘em to us in hers hands. We boff sniffed and then backed away and looked at da floor. So mommy laid them on da floor fur us. And she picked up da camewa hopin’ to get a foto of us chowin’ down. But dat didn’t happen. We boff sniffed and then looked up at mommy. Finkin’ we might not want a flash in ow faces while we ate, mommy put da camewa down. Nuffin’. Lexi walked off to da kitchen and me went and jumped on da cat twee. Hmmmmm Mommy fawt maybe it wuz too close to dinnew time and so she gave us ow dinnew and sed we kuld have sum tweats afur bed time. So wight afur bed time mommy took out a tweat fur each of us, and put them down and again, nuffin’. So mommy put them in ow leave out plates and off to bed we went. Da next meownin’ mommy checked and boff tweats wuz still there. While fixin’ ow bwekky she watched to see ifin us 2 hungwy kitties wuld eat ow tweat…Nope, nuffin’. So guess weez gotta conclude these wuz a weal miss fur us. All paws down. But hey, yous can’t purrlease evewy kitty evewy time.

All You Need…

Meowllo evewypawdy awe you weady fur da weekend? It’s almost here. Anyways today’s anudder day in da Bloggin’ A to Z challenge. And todays letter is N. Hmmmmm We hear da word No stawts wiff an N, but since mommy rarely ifin ever tells us No, then  maybe me better not talk ‘bout dat. So me fawt fur a long time and finally ‘cided to talk ‘bout Needs. You know fings peeps and anipals must have to survive. There be da obvious fings like food and water altho’ mommy sez dat hoomans can go wiffout faw longer than is fawt. But we hope nun of ow furiends evew have to find out how long. And then there’s da comfurts of a home wiff heat and air conditionin’. A bed and somewhere to sit. Altho’ mommy has lived in hers caw afur, she sez she be way to old fur dat kind of life anymowe. And then there be LOVE. We wish nopawdy/kitty evew had to go fwu life wiffout luv.

APRIL-CALENDAR [2015]

Lexi and me awe so blest to have such a wunnewful mommy and all of you. But there’s lots of animals in da world hoo have never known luv. And sum dat did and lost it, and found themselves in shelters or on da stweets all by themselves. We told you da udder day ‘bout ow towns city council making sum weally stupid statements ‘bout da law and how they like to solve da purrawlem of those unwanted kitty cats dat roam ow stweets, and how mommy wuz on a mission to set fings stwaight. You know those kitties didn’t choose to be outside scwimpin’ fur food and shelter. All they evew wanted wuz a home and luv. To survive tho they must hunt or search fur homes dat will meet their basic needs fur food and water and shelter. And now a community wants to take those fings fwum them as well.

 dw Lexi4064

Mommy finally spoke wiff one of da council members and hims admitted they didn’t know da laws and spoke outta turn and wuld be cowwectin’ dat. And then him went on to say dat anudder of da council members stated he had twapped one of sed cats and wuz fined $20,000.00 cuz it wuz feral. Just when mommy fawt she had heard evewyfin’. OMC Hoo comes up wiff this stuff. Anyways, mommy wesponded wiff, “that’s not a penalty nor is there any such law.” To which she got, “well we’ll have to do some research because we’re a small town and can’t afford a $20,000.00 fine.”  Mommy proceeded to splain dat they kuld hoomanely twap those kitties and hoomanely twansport them to da nearest local shelter to be held fur adoption or hoomanely eufanized. And then you wanna hear what ‘scuses they made? They told mommy dat da shelter chawges them $25.00 fur each animal they turn in. Yep, dat’s mowe than a bullet, but guess what? Accordin’ to state law a bullet dusn’t qualify as hoomane euffanasia. Oh and dat killin’ must be dun by a twained and qualified purrfessional tech or Vet so as not to cause undue stwess on sed animal. So we conclude ow town NEEDs to gwo up and join this centuwy.

 dw Lexi1412

So da last fing weez gunna leave ya’ wiff today is this. Ifin yous feel da need to add a furry to yous household, purrlease ADOPT. Save a life and in turn save yous own. We all have needs and fur us da most purrtant one is luv.

Matriarchs of the Pride

Meowllo evewypawdy hope yous havin’ a gweat week. Well da Bloggin’ A to Z challenge modewators wuz here yesfurday and weez not been kicked out. Whew (runs paw across forehead) So we covewed 2 letters in one day, K fur Kittens and L fur Law. So today’s letter be M. Well lately there seems to be gweat discussion amung ow bloggin’ counterpawts on Facebook ‘bout whedder or not cats have a hierarchy; or as da doggy peeps call it…an alpha. So we fawt dat we wuld tackle dat subject today. Hmmmm this bloggin’ challenge sure has us duin’ a lot educational stuffs, huh?. Anyways, anypawdy hoo has evew owned a doggy knows da hooman needs to assert themselves as da alpha or there’s gunna be lots of purrawllems at their house. So duz da same hold twue wiff cats? 

 dw Dezi1383

As you know there’s just Lexi and me. But before me mommy had sis Lexi and her 2 bwofurs. And mommy also fostered and always had a house full of kitties, so she can tell ya’ ‘bout whether or not cats have a hierarchy. But first lets take a look at the history of cats, both large and small. Even as late as the 1970’s scientists thought that the only social cat was the lion pride. Held together by it’s close matriarchal leadership where all the females share the duties of raising the young, hunting and feeding the pride and even fighting off intruders when their male is away. The only standard used to determine the results were those of the dog pack. But as anyone who has ever owned both cats and dogs know they are completely different and one can’t study cat behavior based on that of a dog.

dw Lexi lunge look1

I’z da Top Cat heer. I’z took oweber frum minez brofur Lucky when himz went too hebben.

More recent studies have shown that like lion prides the feral cat colony has a similar matriarchal hierarchy. So now we move into the house and look at the altered cats living under your roof. When all cats in the house have been spayed or neutered less attention is placed on the sex of the cats in determining who will be in charge. The humans in the house can also play a role in determining who gets to be Top Cat; we’ll tell ya’ more about that later. More often than not the top cat in the household is the one that’s been there the longest. In our house mommy makes sure that sissy remains in the top spot as she has been here longest. Cats living together will divide up territory within their house. That’s not to say that one cat won’t go into the territory of another such as pawdee boxes, water bowls, cat trees, beds, etc.. However these things are typically surrendered quickly when the top cat wants to claim them.

 dw Dezi3676

Typically the top cat is given a wide berth. Play time is a great time for watching the behavior of your cats and observing who is the head cat in your house. The lower cats look to the top cat for approval. The top cat usually is deferred to in every thing. All subordinates recognize the authority and experience of the top cat. Sometimes these behaviors are subtle. So subtle you might not even see them. When the top cat walks by a subordinate might flatten their ears, divert their gaze downward or drop on their side or belly to show submission. Subtle changes in the household can affect the fragile hierarchy of your little pride of house lions such as an illness in the cats (top cat especially) or a family member, a move, a new cat or kitten, or any number of other changes. You humans can help to keep the hierarchy in tact. How you ask? Well let me tell ya’.

 0dw Lexi cat tree2

It’s something mommy’s been doin’ for years to keep order in our house and make sure we get along. Mommy says it makes for introducing new furries and changes a whole lot easier. First recognize there is a hierarchy in your feline family and determine who is top cat. It’s not always the meanest or biggest. Mommy says she likes it to be the kitty who has been ‘round the longest cause subordinates will learn appropriate behaviors from them. Always refer to the top cat first in everything. Top cat gets fed first, petted first, greeted first, talked to first, and so on. We think you get the idea. And first does not mean that subordinates have to wait till the top cat is finished, it just means their plate is filled first, or set down first, they get the first treats and so on. Mommy says it’s sometimes hard especially if a subordinate is friendlier or more outgoing than the top cat because we’ll be the ones meeting you at the door. But mommy says ignore that and go straight to the top cat to greet and then everybody else. If you have a large feline family it helps to identify the rank of all cats and do the above in that order. It’ll for sure help keep the peace in your house. So we may not be called Alphas but we do have a hierarchy. It’s a fragile one but it exists.
