Dezi:  MeOW  HiSsssssssss RaenaBelle!!! Quit jumpin’ on me!!!

          Raena:  I’s didn’t jump on you sissy, I’s jumped over you. I’s was in a hurry to get to the purrch. I’s thought I’s saw somethin’ outside.

Dezi: Ya’ still need to stop. How many times has mommy told you to slow down Raena? Besides, it’s Blest Sunday and was time fur brekky. What ifin mommy had a been tryin’ to bring us our plates at that very minute? Y, All our food would’a ended up on the floor. We’re not heathens, we don’t eat off the floor.

          Meow fur yourself sissy, sometimes I’s find all kinds of yummy things on the floor. Y, Just the other day mommy dropped a piece of cheese in the kitchen when she was makin’ her smashed tater with cheese. Ifin I’s hadn’t grabbed it up when I’s did, she would’a throwed it in the trash. What a waste that would’a been. I’s luvs me some cheese. Ya’ know our china platters are fine, but I’s not gonna miss an oppurr-tunity to eat me somethin’ tasty just cuz it’s not served with silver and gold trimmins. See, sometimes you can find Blessings on the floor. Just be careful it’s food and not a bug. 

 

(Dezi shakes her head) Oh Raena, sometimes me just doesn’t know what to do with you. 

 

          Oh sissy, just luvs me. You know you were just like me once. Mommy says so. She says when you were young you couldn’t wait fur her to open the door in the meownin’ and put the purrch in front of it. She says you used to sit on it fur hours and chirp and chortle at anythin’ that came by. 

 

Dezi sits on small perch looking outside

 

 

 

 

Yeah Raena, me did. It seems so long ago now. It also seems like there was more to see back then. We used to have stray kitties and all kinds of wildlife play on our porch. It’s gotten so hot, ain’t nuffin’ outside doin’ much of anythin’. Y, just last night it was still 104°F at 9:30 p.m.. That’s just too hot.

 

          Yep sissy, it is. You’d think the old bobcat and the coon family would be knockin’ on our door askin’ fur food. It’s gotta be too hot to hunt.

 

Me’s been wonderin’ where they were Raena. We haven’t seen either of ‘em all season. Maybe when it starts coolin’ off in a couple of months they’ll show up. Fankfully, we furinally got a new lease signed. Our rent went up $30.00, so mommy may have to put her dentures on hold fur a bit. It takes quite a bit of gas to get there every week and she’s been drivin’ on fumes the last couple times. With more money we don’t have goin’ to rent and nowhere to take green papers from, that drive is purretty much the only thing left to cut.

 

Raena lays on scratching pad

 

 

 

          Well sissy, I’s guess that’ll give her more time to try to fix the mess the manager made and figger out what they can and can’t do befur it all starts again. Ya’ know the manager told mommy that they’re gonna be “rehabing” these ‘pawrtments soon and that they’re gonna wanna do a move out and then move us back in and start all this again in just a few months. Mommy told ‘em they couldn’t do that cuz she has a years lease, and utilities that be in her name that she has to pay each month. While she might not have had to put down a depawsit, those companies charge to turn it on and move it and stuffs. Not to mention the stress mommy’s just went thru. We fur sure can’t be doin’ this again that soon. We all need time to recupurrate.  

 

Yeah Raena, the way they treat us just ain’t right. It’s not like we’re poor and need help by choice. And mommy certainly ain’t disabled by choice. Ifin mommy could change our situation, she would in a heartbeat. Our mommy ain’t afraid of work. Y, Befur her accident, she worked 2 and 3 jobs at a time to make sure she could affurd everythin’ she needed and wanted. 

 

          I’s heard sissy. She says she was young and dumb back then and didn’t save, so that’s why we’re in the shape we’re in now. Altho’ I’s know mommy wishes she could do more and could give us more, and had more money, I’s glad things happened the way they did. Y, ifin they hadn’t who knows where you and me would be? We might not have ever been saved?. I’s don’t even wanna think ‘bout what it would have been like ifin mommy hadn’t showed up and whisked me away to this Blest life. 

 

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

 

 

 

Me neither, Raena, me neither. We might not be rich by the standards the world uses, but when it comes to luv, we’re bazillionaires. 

 

          You got that right sissy. We’ve got the bestest mommy ever, altho’ we know all of you think you’ve got the bestest pawrent, and that’s okay. And meowin’ of all of ya’, we can’t ‘magine a life without you.

We wouldn’t want to Raena. We have the bestest furiends in the whole universe. God smiled on us the day we met you, our dear furiends, and we ask Him each and every day to keep and Bless you and your families. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. Blessings are all ‘round us, we just have to stop and see ‘em.

          So true sissy, so true. Let’s link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and go get us some mommy luvvin’. But furst, I’s wanna meow Fanky fank You God, fur all our blessings. And fanky fank all of you fur bein’ pawrt of our Blessings each day.

 

Me seconds that Raena. C’mon, me will race ya’ to mommy’s lap.

 

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

Natural & Easy Defense Flea Tag #ChewyInfluencer

Hey everypawdy, guess who? Yep, it’s me, RaenaBelle here on a Fursday. We have so much to meow ‘bout, mommy said we had to write an extra posty today. As most of ya’ know, we shop fur most of our kitty supplies at Chewy.com. Ya’ know, the purrices are good, the selection is varied and the customer service is tops. So, when Petsmart bought them, we kind’a waited with baited breath to see what was gonna happen. Quite furankly, we sort of ‘spected the worse. 

 

Dezi lays atop the liberty cat tree while Raena scratches her neck on the ledge below

 

 

 

          RaenaBelle!!! Befur we had a catputer, we had really wished a Petsmart would open up ‘round here. So meowin’ we ‘spected the worse isn’t very nice or accurate.  

 

I’s just meant that we ‘spected purrices to go up and customer service to go down. You know, when big companies swallow up the little ones, those things are always affected. Anyways, to our surpurrise, things kind’a remained the same…least fur a while. Recently, Chewy has begun carryin’ some purroducts by Only Natural Pet, another online pet company purrchased by Petsmart. So, to innerduce peeps to these purroducts, we were asked ifin there was an Only Natural Pet purroduct we would like to try.

 

          Yep Raena, and mommy had been eyein’ one of their natural purroducts fur some time. As most peeps know, mommy luvs usin’ more natural purroducts on us. She purrticularly hates to use poison on us to treat/purrvent fleas and ticks. She treats the yard ‘round our ‘pawrtment each season, and also sprays ‘round windows, doors and any openings that fleas could use to get into our house. 

 

Only Natural Pet Easy Defense Flea Tag

 

 

 

That’s true sissy. But, bein’ Service Cats, means that at some point, we’re gonna be goin’ outside somewhere that mommy can’t treat. Flea treatments have come a long way over the years, and Only Natural Pet had developed a tag that’s worn on the collar to purrvent fleas, ticks and mosquitoes fur up to 1 year. Yep, it’s a tag and not the collar itself. You know, kind’a like the rabies tag or name tag some cats and woofies wear. So, mommy said we’d luvs to take that there tag fur a spin. We only received 1 tag, so mommy decided to let me try it out. I’s young and luvs to go anywhere and everywhere, so mommy figgered I’s needed more purrtectin’ than sissy. Let’s see what Chewy has to say ‘bout the Easy Defense Flea, Tick and Mosquito Dog and Cat Collar Tag: 

 

Description

Protect your precious pup from fleas, ticks and mosquitoes the safe and effective way with the Only Natural Pet EasyDefense Flea & Tick Tag. Using the power of silicon dioxide particles, these unique tags are coded with frequencies that are safe for your pet, but irritating to biting insects—making for an effective, chemical-free flea and tick repellant. Once the tag is placed on your pet’s collar, programmed frequencies will harmonize with your pet’s own biological frequency, repelling those pests without bothering your furry friend. To humans and pups, this tag is harmless, but the vibration makes one thing clear to fleas and ticks: they aren’t welcome on the back of your furry friend. Keep them safe the natural way, with Only Natural Pets.

Key Benefits

  • Contains silicon dioxide particles that are encoded with frequencies that are safe for your pet, but grating to fleas and ticks, making for an effective, chemical-free flea and tick repellent.
  • Causes no harm to your pet—once the tag is hooked onto your pet’s collar, encrypted frequencies will synchronize with your pet’s unique biological frequency, deterring fleas, ticks, mosquitoes and other biting insects without bothering your pet.
  • Simply clip this flea and tick tag to your dog or cat’s collar and, in three weeks, you will have powerful, safe and effective flea and tick control that lasts up to a full year.
  • The tag uses quantum mechanics, and does not use electricity, chemicals, magnetics, or radioactivity.
  • Based on over 15 years of targeted research in collaboration with doctors and scientists, these European-designed tags are completely safe for dogs, cats and humans.

Precautions

The EasyDefense Tag is designed for flea prevention, not eliminating infestations. If your pet is already infested by fleas, their environment is also infested, and the tag on its own will not be enough to mitigate the infestation. To eliminate existing flea infestations, we strongly recommend complementing the tag with other natural flea removal products.

Only Natural Pet Easy Defense Flea Tag

 

 

 

When mommy furst opened the package, she noticed the tag was covered in a powder of some kind. It kind’a got everywhere. But mommy purrceeded to attach it to the stretchy collar she has fur us and chased me down to put it on. Yep kitties, it smelled funny, I’s wasn’t none to thrilled to wear it. Once the powder flakes off, the smell goes away too. The directions are purretty clear, one tag purr pet and it needs to be worn most if not all the time in order to synchronize and be effective. 

 

Instructions

Simply attach the EasyDefense Tag to your pet’s collar using the ring provided, positioning it on top of other tags, farthest away from your pet.

The EasyDefense Tag will become fully effective within a few weeks. If you remove your pet’s collar at night, place it in or close to their bed. Since the tag utilizes your pet’s energy to create a natural barrier to pests, it should stay on or around your pet at all times.

It will usually begin working within a few days, but may take up to a few weeks depending on your pet’s health and the severity of pests in the environment. The EasyDefense Tag will also last up to 12 months.

The tag is waterproof and sturdy, but if it is severely damaged we recommend that you replace it. For the first 4 weeks remove the tag during baths and long swims, but after that period it is fine to leave on in the water.

For optimum effectiveness, please rinse the tag every month or so to remove dirt and debris.

The tag can only be used on one pet at a time because it synchronizes with the pet’s unique energy. Each pet in the household will require its own tag.

Keep the tag away from strong electric and magnetic fields, as these will disturb its effectiveness. If your pet has a microchip, it will not harm its effectiveness. 

 

 

 

I’s wasn’t thrilled havin’ it on. I’s scratched and shook mine’s head and faux sneezed a few times. That’s purrobably mommy’s fault. Our rabies tag is attached to our harnesses, so we don’t actually wear those all the time. As fur collars, those are also somethin’ we don’t normally wear all the time. So, now not only did I’s have on a collar, but I’s had a dangle at the end. The furst hurdle I’s had was at dinner time. The tag kept hittin’ mine’s china dinner plate and gettin’ into mine’s food. That was just never gonna do. So, mommy took the collar off so I’s could eat dinner and then put it back on. Later, when we went to bed, I’s couldn’t settle down to sleep, so again, mommy removed mine’s collar. Since I’s sleep in the bed with her, the tag went on the table beside the bed. Hmmmmm I’s hope it didn’t synchronize to mommy. MOL

Furinally, much to mine’s chagrin, mommy decided we had to let me keep the tag on long enuff to ‘synchronize’ so that we could at least test it. I’s furinally quit scratchin’ at it and we only took it off durin’ meals and at night. Honestly, it’s kind’a hard to meow whether it truly works or not, since we don’t normally have a purroblem with fleas and ticks. However, we really like the idea behind it. It took some gettin’ used too, but I’s would give it 2 paws up. Anytime I’s don’t have to get doused with nasty smellin’ poisonous chemicals, is a good time and reason to celebrate. The tag costs $56.98 which seems like a lot, but considerin’ it works fur 12 months, that means it only costs $4.75 a month. That’s actually purretty cheap considerin’. The leadin’ treatments run $50.00 to $60.00 fur 3 to 6 months supply, so it’s at least half the cost fur up to twice as long. Mommy says she’d give it a thumb up. She luvs the natural non toxic option to purrvent a real purroblem.

As the instructions say, ifin you already have an infestation, you’re gonna need to treat it with another method furst. The Easy Defense Flea, Tick and Mosquito Tag is a purrventative not a treatment. We don’t know how the “synchronizing” works, but because of it, each tag can only be used for 1 animal. It is not interchangeable and must be worn regularly to be effective.

 

 

Disclaimer: We received the Easy Defense Flea, Tick and Mosquito Tag in exchange for our honest opinion. As always, we tell it like we see it. And, we only bring you products, we use or have tried and believe would be of interest to you, our readers and friends.

 

          Me’s not sure me would have wanted to try it out Raena. Me thought it was annoyin’ when it kept dingin’ your dinner plate. But, ifin it means no stinky poisons down our backs, me’s all in. As always, you can save a few extra bucks at Chewy by settin’ up an auto ship. That’ll also help ya’ to never run outta your pets favorite noms or treats or whatever. And right now, you can save an additional 25% off your order of the Easy Defense Flea, Tick, and mosquito dog and cat tag.

Chatting Cats: Raena’s Non Negotiable And A Q & A

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s don’t like it when mommy’s stressed out. Do you know she passed out last night while we were in the middle of typin’ a comment to one of our furiends? Ifin that wasn’t bad enuff, no sooner did she come too, then she fell asleep right there in the sittin’ chair. Yep, mouth open, droolin’, snorin’ and all. She’s s’posed to come to the bed so we can give her a massage and snuggle up next to her. There’s not much room fur snugglin’ in the sittin’ chair. I’s don’t like it, I’s tell ya’, I’s just don’t. 

 

Dezi lays on the arm of the chair, Selfie

 

 

 

          Raena, me’s not sure mommy was actually droolin’, me’s purretty sure that was me. 

 

Really sissy? Why would you be droolin’? It makes everythin’ all slobbery and wet. The sittin’ chair’s already got limited space and now you go and slobber all over it. Anyways…I’s just want things to get back to normal ‘round here. I’s need mine’s cuddle time with mommy, it’s a non-negotiable. She purromissed when she saved me that we’d always cuddle and I’s don’t want that to change. 

 

          Non-Negotiable Raena? Where’d you come up with that one? 

 

Raena sleeps on the bed beside mommy A

 

 

 

From the teevee sissy. The show we watched the other day was askin’ peeps what non-negotiables they had fur their pawrtners. Mommy said that it meant what things they had to have or wouldn’t put up with. So, cuddlin’ is mine’s non-negotiable. 

 

 

          Well Raena, it also means that ifin you don’t get your non-negotiable, you won’t be stayin’ in that relationship. Are you ready to pack up and move out? 

 

Leave mommy? ‘Course not!!! I’s would never leave mommy, and she purromissed she’d never leave me.

 

Dezi lays on cat tree with mouth open and eyes shut

 

 

 

          Well then, it’s not really a non-negotiable Raena. Maybe befur you go throwin’ ‘round human phrases, you need to know ‘zactly what they mean. Better yet, maybe you should quit watchin’ so much teevee. You’re startin’ to sound like those latch key kids that spend all their time in front of the boob tube or playin’ catputer games ‘stead of enjoyin’ life and the company of others. Ya’ know, we’ve got great nature teevee right out the front door you could watch. 

 

That’s just a bunch of re-runs sissy. The same ole peeps doin’ the same ole things every day. It’s done gone and got too hot fur the birdies to do much other than hang out on the tree branches in the shade. I’s not seen one bunny in like, furever. No ducks or geese, Y, even the woofies are stayin’ inside, so what’s so great ‘bout nature teevee these days? 

 

Dezi sits on the liberty cat tree while Raena sits on the small perch looking out the door

 

 

 

          Well Raena, all me knows is that all that nonsense on human teevee isn’t good fur us kitties. Anyways, our furiend CK purrposed some innerview questions fur us the other day, so why don’t we take a minute and answer ‘em? 

 

Okay sissy, that sounds like fun.

 

     1. When did something start out badly for you, but in the end it was great?

          Well, me thinks me can answer fur both of us on this one, Raena. Neither of us had a very good start in life. But since we met mommy, it couldn’t get any better.

 

Dezi and Raena eat Primal Freeze dried Cat food

 

 

 

     2. What weird food combinations do you enjoy?

I’s can meow fur both of us on this one sissy. We don’t really eat combo foods. We like rabbit bestest. 

 

     3. What food have you never eaten but would like to try? 

     Me’s got this one Raena. Filet Mignon. Sis Lexi used to meow ‘bout it all the time. She said mommy brought some home once when she had a date and it just melted in her mouth. 

 

A date, sissy? Our mommy went on a date? 

 

          Another time Raena. Let’s get back to the questions. 

 

Dezi eating Bonito flakes

 

 

 

     4. What food is delicious, but a pain to eat? 

Mine’s turn sissy. I’s gotta say those bonito flakes take some getting’ used too. 

 

     5. What’s the most expensive thing you’ve ever broken?

          Me will answer, Raena. After all, you’re the one who broke our furst stroller. 

 

Raena sits pretty on the Liberty cat tree

I’s purrfection purrsonified. MOL

 

 

 

     6. What would a world populated by clones of you be like? 

Hmmmpht Mommy said your big hiney had already broken it sissy. Anyways, a world full of clones of me? I’s an original and there could never be a copy equal to mine’s purrfection. 

 

     7. What smartfone feature would you be excited for a company to implement? 

          Who’s the laff a minute now Raena? Since we can’t actually use a smartfone we’d like to see a way fur kitties to actually get into ‘em. We could take compurrmisin’ fotos of mommy then. Me bets we’d get lots of treats in exchange fur not postin’ ’em. MOL 

 

     8. What’s something people don’t worry about but should?

I’s don’t care anythin’ ‘bout the smartfone sissy. As fur what humans should worry ‘bout, who knows? I’s just a kitty and mommy says kitties shouldn’t worry ‘bout human stuffs.  

 

     9. What was cool when you were young, but isn’t cool now? 

          Y, everythin’ ‘bout me will always be cool. Raena on the other paw…

 

     10. If magic was real, what spell would you cast first?

We don’t purrticipate in spells and such. Bein’ Christians, we don’t believe in deception. 

 

Dezi laying in mommy's lap and Raena standing on edge of chair looking up

 

 

 

     11. What’s the most comfortable bed or chair you’ve ever been in?

          Me can answer this one fur both of us too, Raena. That’s so easy, mommy’s lap. Mommy’s lap is the most coveted seat in the house. 

 

Raena lays in mommy's lap getting love

 

 

 

It sure is sissy. I’s think I’s gonna head there now. Fanky fanks fur the questions CK, we always luv learnin’ more ‘bout our furiends. Ifin you wanna purrticipate, just link back to CK’s bloggy. These kinds of things are always so much fun when lots of bloggers get in on the action.
