Chatting Cats: Never Too Old To Play

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. Mommy’s pickle’s in a pickle, so I’s in charge. I’s gotta meow to ya’ that I’s luvs bein’ in charge. This is just where kitties belong. 

 

Dezi lays on liberty tree and Raena on the small perch looking at each other in front of the door.

 

 

 

          RaenaBelle!!! Just who actually told you that you were in charge? And what ‘zactly are you in charge of? Me seems to ‘member that me’s your elder and have been here longer than you. Ifin anykitty’s gonna be in charge, it oughtta be me.  

 

Well sissy, you are right that you’re a little long in the toothies, but everypawdy knows, I’s the alpha kitty here. 

 

          Long in the toothies?! Me’s gonna tell mommy that you’re bein’ mean to me. You know it’s not nice to call kitties names. Here me’s given you the benefit of all me’s many years of trainin’ and expurr-ience, and me even innerduced you to all me’s furiends and let you play with all me’s toys and lay on me’s cat tree, and how do you repay me? By makin’ fun of me’s advanced wisdom. Hmmmpht 

 

Dezi sits atop the liberty cat tree looking at Raena laying on the top ledge

 

 

 

But sissy, it’s not makin’ fun ifin it’s the truth?. Mommy says we should always tell the truth, even ifin it hurts.

          Mommy also says, ifin ya’ can’t say anythin’ nice, don’t say anythin’ at all, Raena. Besides, me’s been really nice to you lately. Me even let you play with the new jitterbug all by yourself.

You let me, sissy? I’s thought you were just too, uh, too old mature and tired, yeah that’s it, to keep up with it. I’s whacked it over to ya’ several times, but all you did was sit there and watch. It was great fun. I’s think I’s still like the hexbugs better, but they get lost too easy. We still haven’t located the last one we played with. After retrievin’ him out from unner things 6 times the other day, mommy said ifin he got lost again, that was just too bad.

          Hmmmmpht Too mature and tired. Me just didn’t want your over stimulated whacky paw to hit me’s face. You get all beside yourself when ya’ chase those silly bugs Raena. As fur the hexbug, me’s purretty sure he’s somewhere unner the tables in the hallway. Least that’s where me heard his buzz last. Oh well, mommy will find him one day, she always does.

 

 

Raena plays with the jitterbug and packing paper

 

 

 

In the meantime sissy, least we still have the other hexbug we got fur Christmas and the new jitterbug. Let’s go see ifin mommy will let us play with ‘em again today. I’s know she still has human business to take care of, but surely she can spare a few hours minutes to play with us and to help us visit a few furiends. After all, this is gonna be another of those all nighters so she can get to the dentist office furst thing in the meownin’. I’s sure hope these ‘pointments get wrapped up sooner than later.

          Me too Raena. We could use any purrayers our furiends can spare that mommy can get this lease mess straightened out and get our lives back to some kind of normal. 

 

 

Raena reaches for the jitterbug toy under the crepe paper

I’s gonna get you bug.

 

 

 

Sure ‘nuff, sissy. See you all soon.

 

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

Blest Sunday: Fearless And Mighty Blessings

MeOW  C’mon Raena, it’s Blest Sunday. Time to count our many Blessings fur the week. In spite of all the boom, boom, booms of fireworks, no kitty spent any time UTB (under the bed) here. We quite surpurrised mommy. Me thinks there were a couple of times when she was actually holdin’ her breath and tryin’ to purrtend she didn’t hear anythin’ so we’d ignore it too. Our town put on their little big fireworks extravaganza last night. The boomers seemed to go on furever, but we just ignored them and chilled with mommy.

          Yep sissy, mommy was quite purrleased with us. I’s even caught her smilin’ once when she thought we weren’t lookin’. I’s don’t know why she was surpurrised tho’, nuffin’ scares me. 

 

Dezi lays on the arm of the chair, selfie

 

 

 

Oh yeah, the big bad brave RaenaBelle, conqueror of all in her teeny big world. Hmmmmmpht  Some times you can be a real show off. There’s nuffin’ wrong with bein’ scared now and then. Fear can be a good thing. Ya’ know, like bein’ ‘fraid of mommy’s jet ski sized feet steppin’ on your tail or her’s jumbo hiney splattin’ ya’ when she falls. Bein’ ‘fraid means you know when to get outta the way. 

 

          Why would ya’ be ‘fraid of mommy, sissy? She’d never hurt us. 

 

‘Course not Raena, least not on purr-puss. But, sometimes she doesn’t watch where she’s steppin’, and you know she doesn’t have any control over where she lands when she falls. A little fear never hurt any kitty.

 

Raena lays on the scratcher and looks up

 

 

 

          Whatever sissy, I’s purrfur mine’s way better. I’s trust mommy no matter what. 

 

Well Raena, that’s why you got your tail stepped on the other day.

 

Raena lays on cat scratcher

 

 

 

          To be honest sissy, it wasn’t actually mine’s tail she stepped on. She only caught a few strands of the tippy end of mine’s tail furs. Besides, she cried and ‘pawlogized and gave me lots of extra luvvin’ afterwards. We would have even got some treats but you know we’re not eatin’ ‘em cuz she bought out the store. What kitty wants cheap treats when there’s purrlenty in the house? Anyways, we’re s’posed to be countin’ our Blessings. I’s meow our furst Blessing is that we have a pawsum luvvin’ furever home. This past week it’s been hotter than a fryin’ pan, stormed and raged and been full of silly humans pawppin’ those fireworks; and we didn’t have a care in the world. We were inside with the cool a/c loungin’ ‘bout and enjoyin’ the good life. 

 

Dezi sniffs floor while playing with the yeowww nip heart

 

 

 

Ain’t that the truth Raena. And fanks to awnty Vonda, we had a bar-b-que sammich, smashed taters with cheese and a watermelon fur our celebration.

 

          Oh sissy, that bar-b-que sammich was so tasty. I’s fanky fankful mommy shared, but I’s could’a ate a whole sammich mine’s self. I’s didn’t have any of the taters, but I’s do luvs me some cheese. And, that was mine’s furst ever watermelon. It was really purretty yummy too. Who’d’ve thought we kitties would like such a thing? 

 

Watermelon clip art

 

Yep Raena, watermelons are purretty tasty, but me sure does have to pee a lot after eatin’ ‘em. Mommy says they’re one of her favorite foods. We used to have ‘em every summer when me was a kitten. Anyways, we had a great celebration. Me hopes all our furiends did too. We were reminiscin’ this past week ‘bout our lives befur we got a catputer and innernet. We are so Blest to have met so many amazin’ peeps and anipals, and we never wanna go back to the way things were befur.

 

          We sure don’t sissy. I’s wasn’t even alive in those days. But, I’s can’t ‘magine what mine’s life would be like without all our furiends, and I’s don’t even wanna try. 

 

Me neither Raena, me neither. Hey, did you see where mommy read that story ‘bout coffee?

 

          You mean the one that said peeps who drink coffee appear to live up to 5 years longer than peeps who don’t drink coffee? Yep sissy, I’s saw that. I’s guess we might oughtta let her enjoy a cup ever once in a while, huh?.

 

Uh, Maybe you oughtta heed your own meows Raena. After all, it wasn’t me inneruptin’ her the last couple of meownings. Me was purrfectly happy to let her finish a cup while it was still hot. 

 

          Well sissy, ifin you had used the litter box ‘stead of the piddle pad, I’s wouldn’t have had to ask her to clean it up right away. Anyways, she made another cup, so technically she got to finish her coffee. Let’s wrap this up, I’s wanna play.

 

Dezi looks at camera while sitting on cat scratcher

 

 

 

‘Course you do Raena. Don’t you ever get tired? (Raena grabs a nip filled mouse and runs through the house chortlin’ and chirpin’.) Guess that answers that one. We’d like to fank you all fur bein’ our furiends. We luv you all very much. We’d also like to remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your life.

Chatting Cats: Getting Ready And Catching Up

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s sure hope ya’ll are stayin’ cool what with all this heat. I’s know t’ween the heat of summer of these things mommy calls her own purrsonal summers, she’s been glistenin’ a lot. What’s that? Glistenin’, you ask? Well, ladies in the South don’t sweat, they glisten. Yep, that’s right, us Southern Belles naturally glisten. And here all these beauty bloggers are spendin’ big bucks on pots of powder to do what we do naturally. MOL 

 

Dezi lays on scratcher and looks back over her shoulder

 

 

 

          RaenaBelle!!!  What are you meowin’ ‘bout now? Me’s sure mommy won’t ‘purreciate you meowin’ ‘bout her glistenin’. As soon as she gets her head outta the fureezer, me’s gonna tell her you blabbed to the world.

 

Raena sits on small perch and looks out the door

 

 

 

 

Sure you will sissy. (Looking out the door from the small perch, Raena sees the lawn crew drive up) I’s have a feelin’ you’re gonna be UTB (under the bed) befur that happens. And, mommy has her regular monthly doctors ‘pointment today, so we’ll be gone this afternoon. I’s bet by the time we get home, you’ve already furgotten what I’s might have meowed, when and to who.

 

Dezi plays on scratcher

 

 

 

 

 

          Whom, Raena, the word’s whom. 

 

Whom? Whom are you meowin’ ‘bout sissy, and why? 

 

Dezi scratches scratcher

 

 

 

 

          That’s who, Raena. Oh furget it. Ya’ll better not stay out too long, we’ve got lots of furiends left to visit. We’re slowly gettin’ caught up. But Kittens!!!, when you get behind a few days it takes furever to get all caught up.  

 

Raena sits stop the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

 

That’s true sissy, but we are makin’ headway. I’s just hate it when we get behind. I’s miss hearin’ what’s goin’ on with all our furiends. Anyways, I’s doubt we’ll be gone too long. It’s s’posed to be in the triple digits today, so I’s sure mommy’ll wanna hurry and get back home. I’s do know we’re gonna make a stop and get us somethin’ special to eat fur the 4th. Fanky fanks to awnty Vonda who sent a few green papers and told mommy to get us all somethin’ that we can enjoy. Now what’s the big deal ‘bout the 4th again?

 

Dezi lays on scratcher and licks paw

 

 

 

          Well Raena, it’s Independence day. The day the furfathers signed the Declaration of Independence. That’s the good pawrt. The bad pawrt is that humans think they oughtta buy a bunch of gun powder in nifty packagin’ and set ‘em off till all hours of the night. We’re in fur a week or so of boom, boom, booms keepin’ us up and interfurrin’ with our beauty naps.

 

Like the ones we heard last night and the night befur sissy? 

 

          Yep, Raena, just like ‘em. 

 

Raena sits pretty on the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

Those weren’t too bad sissy. But, they better not keep us up all night. I’s want mine’s mommy and me cuddle time. Meowin’ of, guess I’s better go see what mommy’s doin’ and get ready to go to town. Why don’t you get us a nice cubby ready fur the boom boom show. Any requests fur our special meal?

 

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