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.

     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.

     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.

     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.

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.

Deztinee and RaenaBelle

Hunt, Kill, Eat Your Breakfast

(Raena zooms through the house letting out her signature hum each time her right paw hits the floor. She rounds the corner and leaps onto mommys lap purring so loudly, it’s almost mistaken for a growl. Her eyes dart from left to right and she catches a glimpse of Dezi in the distance.)

 Raena lays in mommy's lap

(Dezi rounds the corner and heads for her breakfast plate as Raena leaps from mommy’s lap with all 4 paws outstretched. She looks much like a flying squirrel <mommy’s not fast enough to catch this on camera, but continues to try>. She lands on the other side of Dezi and turns and zooms up the Liberty cat tree. Dezi hisses but Raena’s already out of reach. Dezi settles in to eat and Raena steps from ledge to ledge down the Liberty cat tree and walks back over to mommy and rubs her legs and looks up. Mommy reaches down and lifts Raena to her lap and gives her a kiss and says,) Honey, you need to calm down and eat your brekky. See how nice sissy’s eating her brekky? That should be you too.

 

Raena looks out from the top of the Liberty cat tree

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me RaenaBelle.

Dezi looks up from her breakfast plate and over at Raena

          (Dezi looks up from her plate)  Raena, did you hear mommy? You need to come down here and eat your brekky. And that doesn’t mean play with mes tail.

 

I’s don’t wanna eat right now sissy. I’s not hunted and killed anythin’ yet.

 

          We don’t have to hunt and kill our noms Raena, mommy purrvides us with great noms served up on silver platters.

 

Raena eats breakfast

I’s thought they were china, sissy?.

 

          Oh Kittens, Raena!!! Me didn’t literally mean silver, altho’ mommy says our china plates do have silver edges. Me was just makin’ a point. That point was that you have all the food you need without ever liftin’ a paw.

 

 Raena carries a Christmas toy from Cat and Lisa

I’s know sissy. But you know how much I’s like to hunt and kill befur every meal. But I’s lost mines new favorite prey.

 

          Well, ifin ya’ didn’t take everythin’ to the kitchen where the black holes of the oven and furigerator live, you might not lose stuffs so fast. 

 

 Raena heads to the kitchen with the nip nanner

Raena heads to the kitchen, nip nanner in tow.

 

Well sissy, I’s went fishin’ in the black hole under the oven last night, but mommy wouldn’t help me. All she had to do was move da oven and I’s coulda checked fur mines new favorite prey.

 

          Mommy can’t move the oven silly. You know that. Do you want mommy to fall down again? Or pass out? 

 

Of course not sissy. But she coulda just took that big pull out out and let me under there. I’s know fur sure there’s at least one silvervine stick, fluffy ball, mines awnty Ellen fishy, and somethin’ with feathers on it in that black hole. And maybe mines new favorite prey.

 

 

Dezi sits on the brown cat tree in her signature pose

          Well Raena, me suggests you find another new favorite prey. Least till the new helper comes to work. Cuz me doesn’t think mommy’s gonna be pullin’ out anythin’ or movin’ furniture any time soon. We got lots of great new toys fur Christmas. Pick one of them.

 

Ya’ know sissy, this is one of those educational moments. Attention all kittys’ slaves… 

 

          Raena!!! 

 

 Raena plays hunt, catch, kill with the wand toy

Uh, yeah, me means “Attention all kittys’ pawrents.” Did you know that we kitties still have some wildness in us? Yep, even us gentle giant Ragdoll cats. Obesity is a real purroblem in house cats. That obesity can cause all kinds of health issues, that could have been avoided, or at least kept at bay fur many years. A kitty’s true nature is to hunt and kill befur we eat. Those of us furtunate enuff to have a furever home with luvvin’ pawrents, no longer have to do this. But just cuz we don’t have too, doesn’t mean the drive isn’t still there. 

 

Raena fly fishing with a wand toy

You know, we think D-I-E-T is a four letter word in our house, but we know it’s sometimes necessary. But there are other ways to keep kitty happy and healthy. Rigorous play not only serves to wear us out, but is also a good way to help us shed those extra pounds. It’s also a good way to entice us to dine on a schedule. With all of the infurmation available today, mommy has learned that kibble isn’t an optimal diet fur any kitty. And that kitties don’t really need food available 24/7. Even the tiger who stashes her kill, doesn’t munch off and on all day and night. That bein’ said, the kitties in mommy’s house have been eatin’ on a schedule fur years now, and I’s don’t know any different. Mommy says I’s need to insert the fact that as a kitten I’s get an extra meal or two each day to meet mine’s growin’ needs. Altho’ we’re not yet eatin’ the complete raw diet mommy would like us too, we do eat the next bestest thing, freeze dried raw. And befur each meal we have a little game of hunt and kill where we build up our appetite and satisfy those wild urgings. MOL 

 

Dezi sits on arm of chair

          That was a great little lesson you purrsented Raena. Me’s kinda impurressed. You’re gonna have to get off mommy’s lap and close out the posty ifin you plan to #hunt, #kill and #eat this meownin’. Furst let’s link up with Rascal, Rocco and their co-hosts fur the weekly Pet Parade

(Raena glimpses a sparrow outside and leaps from mommy’s lap and runs up the Liberty cat tree to get a better look)

Raena looks out the door from her perch on the Liberty Cat tree

Sissy!!! Did you see that birdy? Maybe I’s can hunt, ketch and kill him. 

 

          Shut it down furst Raena.

 

 Raena sits on the Liberty cat tree and looks out the door
