Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. (Raena looks around. Seeing something flutter by the door she runs to the small perch to look out while meowing) Well sissy, we’ve furinally joined this century and got our very own smarty pants fone. Mommy said since it was gonna cost the same as what she pays fur a dumb fone we might as well get a smart one.
Was there any ketches Raena? You know humans luv to trick ya’ with things that sound too good to be true.
You’re right ‘bout that sissy. Seems there was one ketch, she had to pay some kind’a activation fee. The fone was furee and the service is the same as always, but they did want money to turn the thing on. Now ifin mommy can only learn to use it.
(Something flutters by the front door catching Dezi and Raena’s attention) What was that? Did you see that Raena? Mommy, there’s somethin’ on that silly alarm outside. (Dezi and Raena chatter wildly until mommy A gets up and looks outside. Seeing a bird’s nest on the alarm box on the wall outside the front door, mommy tells the girls that they were seeing the mommy bird taking care of her babies.) Really mommy? Do ya’ reckon it’s the same birdy from last year?
I don’t know sweety, maybe.
I’s wanna see the baby birds mommy. Will you hold me up there so I’s can see ‘em?
No Raena, I don’t think the momma bird would be too happy about that. You don’t want to scare her off so she leaves her babies alone, do you?
No, I’s guess not mommy. Ya’ know, our furiends might be wonderin’ just what kind of alarm box we’ve got out there. Since these ‘pawrtments are fur the disabled and elderly, they put a red light and a really noisy alarm on the wall right by the door. It’s s’posed to be fur emergencies. There’s a string in the bathroom and one in the bedroom that cause the alarm to go off when they’re pulled. The alarm isn’t actually connected to any kind’a emergency help, so all it does is go off, give everypawdy a migraine and start the busy bodies to gossipin’.
Yep Raena, one of the furst Service Cat lessons we learn is not to play with the strings. Mommy says she doesn’t want all the nosy neighbors comin’ in our house. It’s not like any of them could actually help mommy. Befur you were born peeps alarms used to go off all the time. They’d be cleanin’ their pawrtments and pull the chain by accident. Mommy says that’s why they’re not attached to any emergency system. Ifin they were, the pawlice, fire depawrtment and ambulance would be here all the time fur false alarms.
Really sissy? I’s can only ‘member hearin’ one of those alarms since I’s been here. It fur sure was loud and annoyin’. I’s bet it would really scare that poor birdy up there.
You’re purrobably right Raena. Let’s not find out, okay? Who knows, there might be lots more birdies with nests full of babies that we haven’t seen. We used to have a neighbor who put bird houses all over her patio. Once she moved, those birdies had nowhere to go anymore. Me bets they chose our purrch fur their nests cuz they knew we’re nice and won’t try to hurt ‘em or shoo ‘em off. Me can’t wait till the baby birdies start learnin’ to fly. Me ‘members those birdies from last year made quite a raucous when they left the nest.
You’re right ‘bout that, sissy. Fur such tiny creatures, they sure can make a lot of noise.
And they’re messy too Raena. They don’t seem to care where they poop. Ya’ gotta be careful or they just might poop on you. Dirty little critters. It’s no wonder the Trout Towne Tabbies don’t like birdies.
MOL That’s a good one sissy. All I’s can meow is that no birdy better poop on me. Ifin they try, we’ll be havin’ ‘em fur dinner.
Hmmmpht Now that’s a good one Raena. Like you could actually ketch a birdy. MOL Me ‘members what you did the furst time you saw a rabbit. Our natural prey and you wanted to play with it.
Oh sissy, he was so cute. Unfurtunately, he wasn’t the least bit innerested in playin’ with me. I’s never could figure out why? Anyways, we better wrap it up; we’ve got one of those inspections tomorrow, so mommy’s gotta do some cleanin’. Let’s go finish brekky and see how we can help.
Till the next time………………………………………..Be Blest!!!

Well so far it hasn’t been any less crazy round here this year than it was last year. Me thinks fur dat to happen we wuld have to become totally different cats and peep and move to sum far away place. Guess we will keep our crazy, weez kinda used too it. MOL So anyways, da garbage disposal went out over da weekend while mommy was usin’ it. So da sink smelled really disgustin’ yesfurday when mommy reported it to da manager fur fixin’ or replacin’. Of course da manager thinks mommy knows nuffin’ so she sed she wuld be down in a few minutes to look at it. Now mind you it’s not just mommy who knows nuffin’ accordin’ to da manager, all da other residents who moved here from homes they had owned know nuffin’ eever.
So da manager finally comes over and flips da disposal switch and…nuffin’. Mommy told her she had already tried da reset button afur callin’ in da work order. She looked ‘round a minute and then pulled out da S shaped tool what comes wiff everything you gotta put together these days, and fell to da floor. She’s a big lady and when she hit da floor there was a big boom. Me came runnin’ to da kitchen and when me saw her, me hissssssssssed and spit and ran. Me dusn’t like her or da way she’s treated mommy fru da years and me takes every oppurrtunity to let her know. MOL Anyways, she started unscrewin’ da disposal and had mommy continually flip da switch. Again and again nuffin’ happened. She finally got up and said she wuld need to call her supervisor to get purrmission to call da plumber. Mommy sed she had a doctors pointment so it wuld have to be late afternoon or da next day. Da manager told her it wuld be after 5:00 p.m. when da plumber got off work. Yep sounds kinda shady to us too, but at this point we just want da sinks to drain, da disposer to work and da stench to be gone.
So off to da doctor we went. Seems everypawdy round here is sick and da whole waitin’ room was full of snot noses and coughin’ peeps. Fank catness we got right in and hopefully mommy didn’t ketch any of those germs. MOL It felt like we travelled all over creation, but when we got home it was still afur 5 so mommy started watchin’ fur this mysterious plumber. She was exhausted, but hoped to have everything workin’ again afur sissy and me ate dinner. But by our dinnertime nopawdy had showed up so mommy closed da house up and gave us our noms. Furst thing this meownin’ mommy called da office to get a status update ‘bout dat mystery plumber and was told he wuld be here today sumtime after 4:00 p.m. cuz he usually handles things out here on his way home. Yep, still sounds shady but da stench today is worse than yesfurday, so we just want it fixed.
And we gotta get wiff those helps peeps today ‘bout our open id so we can start commentin’ again. So it looks like da start of another crazy day in Deziz World fur all of us. And while all this be goin’ on mommy’ll be tryin’ to ketch up on last seasons’ Teen Wolf. Me knows. Mommy hasn’t been a teen in a long time, and she never saw da actual movie but she got hooked on da series when it furst came on. (Fur those of ya’ wunnerin’, it’s on MTV) And hey, we saw this video da other day of sumpawdy feedin’ their kitties frozen mice. As you know mommy’s twyin’ to switch us to a raw food diet, but she isn’t quite sure she’s ready fur us to nom on a mousey, frozen or otherwise. MOL
How ‘bout you? Wuld you be inclined to eat a diet of frozen mouseys? Or wuld you as peeps feed yous kitties frozen mouseys? By da way, this be a serious question.
Till da next time…………………………….Be Blest!!!

Well it’s a Blest Gotchaday day Sunday fur me. Yep, this is da day me got gotted 6 years ago. Me gave you a brief look into da events of meez gotchaday in meez last posty. Ifin you missed it you can read it here. Me is a Thanksgivin’ kitty fur sure. Meez furst three weeks of life might have been turbulent, but meez been livin’ on cloud nine ever since mommy saved me. Meez big blessin’ at this time of year is meez life and meez furmily. Me kuld very well have died afur mommy ever came to save me, but God was lookin’ out fur me and kept me holdin’ on till He kuld send mommy to me. Altho’ mommy didn’t take and foster meez 10 littermates she did help da dog rescue dat took us in; to get them all healthy. As far as we know, all meez littermates lived and got homes. Me bets none of them got a mommy like me did tho’. (Weez postin’ never afur seen fotos from back then. We pawlogize fur da quality, we had nuffin’ digital back then. Can you believe we actually thought some of these was good? MOL Thank catness fur digital cameras.)
In other news , you may have noticed we haven’t been round much. As we was visitin’ you all on Furiday we had to take a small bweak cuz mommy’s case worker was here fur sum paper signin. Mommy wasn’t movin’ very fast to begin with, but we were makin’ da rounds. After mommy’s case worker left we tried to git back to visitin but it was our turn to update our puter. See we signed up fur Windows 10 a while back. We never heard anything ‘back from them and basically just furgot ‘bout it all. Till Furiday when suddenly our catputer started updatin’. Parently our turn had come up and we was getting’ da new Windows 10. What it really meant was no bed fur mommy Furiday night cuz she had to monitor da whole fing and then find everyfin’ again.
OMC It’s gunna take us a while to figger all this out. Nuffin’ is where weez used to it bein’ and it’s so alive it seems to log us outta stuff all da time. It took a good little while to get it set up and then we discovered dat we had to re-load everything weez use to usin’ includin’ google, da live writer we use fur managin’ da blog, our email, well everyfin’. And then we gotta find where it all went to. MOL Mommy is just not puter literate enuff fur this kind of stuffs. MOL Which reminds me, sum of you got a email yesfurday dat sed me published a new bloggy but then nuffin’ was there. Seems when da Windows Live Writer syncs, it posts a temporary post and then immediately deletes it in order to verify and link up to da blog. Me didn’t actually post to da blog yesfurday. Mommy kuld barely hold hers head up much less type. MOL We are excited ‘bout da new Windows 10 but it is daunting too. Purrlease bear with us as we find our way around again and get back to visitin’. And mommy gets sum rest. Ifin any of ya’ dat have already updated have any tips, let us know.
Thank you all fur bein’ in our lives and bein’ da blessings you are. This week is Thanksgivin’ here in da U.S., but don’t wait fur Thanksgivin’ each year to list and be thankful fur da blessings in your life. Take at least a moment each day to give thanks fur da many blessings bestowed upon you. No matter your situation, you are alive and have this moment. Dat is a Blessing. Meez gotta go get sum Gotchaday snuggles and play now so weez’ll see ya’ later.
Till da next time……………………………………….Be Blest!!!
