Chatting Cats: Welcome To Our Tree Gizmo

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Most of ya’ have expurressed an interest in hearin’ ‘bout our recent guests. We’re so x’cited to meow ‘bout it; so grab your coffee, tea or drink of your choice and read on. We’re runnin’ really late, but wait’ll ya’ see all the fotos. We really do luv meetin’ our furiends. Ifin we could, we would visit all of ya’ in the fur to fur/flesh. So, let me set the stage fur ya’.

          Raena, me should set the stage. After all, they were me’s furiends furst. So, it went somethin’ like this: A few weeks ago mommy got an email from awnty Mary Beth, who lives in Arizona. She said her, uncle Garth and our sweet furiend Gizmo were comin’ our way and wanted to pay us a visit. Mommy squealed with delight and told Raena and me we had a surpurrise comin’ on September 17th. We thought the 17th was never gonna get here. But alas, the day furinally came and Raena and me set up on the cat tree to watch fur our surpurrise. 

 

 Raena meets Gizmo

 

 

We sure did sissy. but, as the day went by, you got tired of waitin’ and went to the back to take a nap. See sissy? I’s didn’t say anythin’ ‘bout the thunder boomers. Anyways, I’s kept mine’s watch out the door, even tho’ I’s didn’t know what I’s was watchin’ fur. Minutes turned into hours and hours into days. Okay, so maybe that’s stretchin’ it a bit, but it seemed like furever. Furinally, mommy jumped up and said, “Dezi!!! Raena!!! They’re here!!!” And then she jumped up and opened the door. Once everypawdy came inside and sat down, I’s headed over to meet mine’s new furiend.

          Yep Raena, and then mommy came to wake me up so me could come and visit too. Me could hardly believe me’s awnty Mary Beth, uncle Garth and Gizmo were actually sittin’ in me’s house. MeOWwwwww  Me knows sis Lexi would’a luvved to meet ‘em, so me had to say an extra hey cuz she couldn’t be here. ‘Course, mommy wanted to do a lot of talkin’, so me went to lay on the cat tree and let them do their human stuffs.

 

 Raena looks up at Gizmo sitting in Mary's lap

Hey Gizmo, mine’s name is RaenaBelle. So nice to meet ya’.

Wanna play on our cool cat tree?

 

 

Yep sissy, humans sure do like to talk don’t they?. Unfurtunately, it had been threatenin’ to storm all day, and the thunder boomers started rumblin’ thru shortly after they got here.

          They sure did Raena. With all the extra peeps in the house, me had to go make absolutely sure there were no spiders or any other pesky pests that were gonna get anypawdy.

Sure sissy, whatever you say. It’s just too bad you spent most of the day UTB (under the bed). Gizmo and I had lots of fun. We hung out on the cat tree getting’ our fotos taken. Did you know mommy offured him one of our Yeowww nip nanners? Gizzy was a little to nervous to let loose and enjoy the goodness of the nip nanner. So, mommy sent it home with him fur all of his fursibs to enjoy. We don’t mind sharin’, ‘specially since mommy bought us extra with the money awnty Vonda had sent fur your birthday last year. You know, we think every kitty oughtta have the joy of a Yeowww nip nanner at least once in their lives. Awnty Mary Beth said Gizzy’s not too crazy ‘bout his harness and that’s why he wouldn’t let loose and play. I’s offured to put mine’s harness on ifin it would make him more comfurtable. 

 

          That sure was nice of ya’ Raena.

Well sissy, it was the least I’s could do. Mommy shared her cofee with uncle Garth. And you know I’s wanna be just like mommy.

 

          Mommy didn’t actually share her coffee Raena, she made uncle Garth a cup of coffee all his own. 

 

That’s what I’s meant sissy. Kittens!!! Ya’ think I’s said they were drinkin’ outta the same cup. Hmmpht  Anyways, you’re never gonna believe what happened next… 

 

Garth and Mary Beth

 

 

Stay tuned, we’ll be back with the rest of the story Sunday. T’ween the hunnerd fotos mommy took and the 157 fotos awnty Mary Beth took, we’re tryin’ to show as many as we can without goin’ overboard. But, that’s a lot of fotos and mommy’s eyes started crossin’ lookin’ at ’em all. MOL 

 

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

Chatting Cats: Getting Ready For Winter With A Thermal Pet Mat

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Did ya’ think we got lost? Well, you all know, mommy’s old as Methuselah, so after all that went on last week and the company house cleanin’, mommy was wore out. We really enjoyed our visit and will be tellin’ ya’ all ‘bout it soon. Mommy’s got lots of fotos to watermark furst. That bein’ said, mommy was too tired to help us write a purro-purr Service Cat Monday posty; so we took the day off to visit our blog furiends and check out Facebook. But, never fear, Service Cat Monday will be back next week. And, we’ve got a doozy of a posty fur ya’. In the meantime… 

 

 Dezi lays atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

          RaenaBelle, me thought you were gonna meow ‘bout our new Thermal Cat Mat today?. 

 

 Thermal pet mat, mitt brush and pick comb

 

 

I’s was just gettin’ to that sissy. We were contacted by a really nice man at Vangardio ‘bout reviewin’ a few of their pawsum cat purroducts and offurin’ our readers and furiends a discount to get their very own. Knowin’ how much us kitties like warmth and cat mats, we jumped right on it. 

 

Non slip cover on thermal pet mat

 

 

          Yep Raena, and the day it got here, we both got sick with the runny cruds. So, mommy put it aside till we got to feelin’ better.

 

 Zipper on thermal pet mat

 

 

We received the Thermal Pet Mat and grooming tools for free in exchange for our honest review. As always, we tell it like we see it and only bring products we use or have tried and believe would be of interest to you, our readers and friends. Vangardio is not responsible for the contents of this post unless otherwise stated. 

 

Raena sniffs thermal mat

 

 

That’s right sissy. Mommy furinally pulled the box out the other day and let us try out the new Thermal Pet Mat. Our box included the Thermal Pet Mat, a Pick Comb and the coolest Mitt Brush. There’s no plug on the mat. All the warmin’ comes from that Thermal idea. I’s not quite sure I’s unnerstand how all that works.

 

 Dezi sniffs thermal pet mat

 

 

          It works like mommy’s thermal drawwwwws Raena.

 

 

 

Thermal drawwwwws? Mommy’s drawwwwws ain’t thermal sissy. Does mommy even have drawwwwwws?

 

 

 

          Yes Raena, it’s her thermal underwear. She calls ‘em long johns, cuz they have long legs and use her body heat to keep her warm. She doesn’t wear ‘em offen, but she has ‘em. Thermal heatin’ uses your own body heat to recirculate and keep ya’ warm. As we lay on that Thermal Pet Mat, it will keep us warm by usin’ our very own body heat. 

 

 Raena checks out thermal pet mat

 

 

Hmmmmm  That’s purretty cool sissy. I’s think the mat’s really purretty. It even has an easily removable cover, zipper included, so mommy can wash it and keep it clean. Ya’ know, just in case we happen to get the runny cruds again. Paws crossed, that never happens again tho’. I’s sure don’t like bein’ sick.

 

 Dezi checks out the Thermal pet mat

 

 

          Me either Raena, me either. Me’s agrees the Thermal Pet mat is purretty, but it’s still a little warm here fur us to truly enjoy it. 

 

 Raena sniffs mitt brush

 

 

That’s true sissy, but I’s guessin’ we’re gonna luvs it come winter. Our mat also came with one of those pawsum Mitt brushes. I’s luvs groomin’ time. I’s could do that all day long. The mitt has a velcro closure to make it easy to get on and off the humans’ hand. One side has these yummy feelin’ rubber nubs fur stimulatin’ our skin and ketchin’ the loose furs. The other side has a felt piece that helps to clean those furs off mommy’s clothes and the chair.

 

          Yeah, me luvs a good brushin’ too Raena. Those mitts feel great fur the occasional brushin’, but they’re not meant to take out any mats long haired kitties may get. There wasn’t any instructions with our goody box, but we’re guessin’ the Pick Comb is fur tacklin’ matted furs. We haven’t actually used it yet.

 

Raena gets brushed with mitt glove

 

 

Us Ragdolls ain’t s’posed to get mats. And you’re one blest kitty sissy, cuz you don’t. Cuz of da bad breedin’ purractices involved in mine’s lineage, unfurtunately, I’s get a few. Fanky fankfully, mommy’s really gentle ‘bout gettin’ mine’s mats out without hurtin’ me. Anyways, I’s give the Thermal Pet Mat and fur sure the Mitt Brush, 3 paws up. What ‘bout you sissy?

 

Raena snifgs mitt brush

 

 

          Me too Raena. 3 paws up from me. And, the nice peeps at Vangardio are lettin’ our readers get an additional 10% off the low purrice of the Thermal Pet Mat by usin’ the discount code PETWORLD durin’ their amazon checkout.

 

The mat is ‘bout 20” X 15” with a zippered removable, washable non slip cover. Mommy says the Mitt Brush fits a medium to large hand snuggly. Mommy has fingers that go on furever, she plays the piano ya’ know, and nails to boot; but she can wear the mitt comfurtably. We think the Thermal Pet Mat would be enjoyed by most cats and small dogs. It’s on sale right now fur $17.99, and don’t furget your 10% discount code, PETWORLD. So, check it out by clickin’ here.  We’ve gotta go now, mommy’s got do some work on the car. We’ll be by to visit as soon as we can.

Blest Sunday: Gizzy’s Coming To Dinner

Hey Raena, hurry up. We gotta write our Blest Sunday posty and get ready. 

 

 Dezi and Raena sit on shower benches in bathroom

 

 

          What lit a fire under your bloomers, sissy? And what are we getting’ ready fur?

 

Dezi lays atop the cat tree

Me will just lay here and watch fur Gizzy.

 

 

(Excitedly Dezi meows) Oh Raena, we be the blestest kitties ever. We’re havin’ visitors today. One of me and sis Lexi’s furstest ever awnties and uncles are comin’ here to our ‘pawrtment, to see us!!! And guess what else? They’re bringin’ one of our furstest furiends, Gizmo. We like to call him Gizzy. He’s a sweet tuxie boy that has diabetes. Me just can’t even believe they’re comin’ all the way from Arizona to see us. 

 

          Really sissy? OMC I’s can’t hardly wait!!! We’re gonna have so much fun. Ya’ reckon we can all go fur a stroll? Or maybe we can all play on the cat tree. You are gonna come out and visit with Gizzy, right sissy? 

 

(Flabbergasted, Dezi meows) What?! Of course me’s gonna come out and visit with ‘em. 

 

 Raena lays on floor

 

 

          Hmmpht  We’ll see. Anyways, as we do every Blest Sunday, we’d like to remind all of you to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. As most of you know, our car’s been broke, the wheelchair’s broke, and we didn’t have innernet access fur a bit, so we’re way behind on our visitin’. We purromise we’ll be ‘round as soon as we can. Mommy’s just been a little overwhelmed with all that’s goin’ on and she’s not very good at helpin’ us with catputer stuffs when that happens. But, we are so grateful fur all of you. Fanky fank you all fur bein’ our furiends and understandin’. 

 

Don’t furget Raena, we’re joinin’ the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies.

Chatting Cats: Watching Out The Door

EDIT: We don’t know when this will post as all internet, phone and cell service went out in our area at 10:30 a.m. Friday 9/15/2017. We have put this post on a loop to publish with the first signal.

 

 

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. (Raena sits on the perch staring out the door and meowing loudly at mommy and the neighbors looking at the car.) Mommy, I’s can see you!!! Purrleeeeeease…let me out there with you!!! MeeeOWwwwwww

 

Dezi looks out door from cat tree

 

          RaenaBelle!!! What is all the caterwaulin’ ‘bout? A kitty can’t take a purropurr beauty nap what with all that noise goin’ on.

 

 Raena lounges on perch and watches the rain out the front door

 

 

I’s wanna be outside with mommy and the new neighbors, sissy.

 

 

 Dezi and Raena look out door from cat tree and small perch

 

 

          (Dezi gets on the cat tree and looks out the door) Raena? Do you see mommy glistenin’ sweating in the sun? It’s hot out there. You don’t wanna go outside. It’s much nicer in here with the air conditioner. Mommy ain’t goin’ nowhere…least not without us.

 

 Dezi and Raena look out door from cat tree and small perch

 

 

I’s know sissy, but I’s still wanna be out there with her. She said the new neighbors are movin’ cuz the manager’s harassin’ ‘em. But they’ve been kind enuff to help mommy work on the car. Seems our car’s radiator tank sprung a leak and hopefully that’s the reason fur all that gurglin’ and sputterin’ the other day. The neighbor boy couldn’t check the fans cuz of all the spewin’ water and antifreeze. Mommy says that antifreeze is the reason I’s can’t go outside with her. 

 

          That’s true Raena. Antifreeze is deadly fur us anipals. Unfurtunately some peeps aren’t very careful with that stuffs and we anipals seem to be attracted to it like a moth to a flame. 

 

I’s don’t see how sissy, that stuff stinks. When the car did all that sputterin’ the other day, I’s got all choked up. I’s couldn’t get outta the car fast enuff.

 

 Dezi and Raena look out door from Cat tree and small perch

 

 

          Me doesn’t know either Raena, but every year lots of anipals end up at the VET cuz of antifreeze poisonin’. Anyways, mommy ordered one of those tanks fur the neighbor boy to put on the car, and we’re purrayin’ hard that’ll fix everythin’. In the meantime, mommy says our surpurrise is comin’ this weekend. And, since she’s been busy all week with the car, she hasn’t gotten to the house cleanin’ that needs to be done. Looks like we’re gonna be helpin’ with that today and tomorrow.

 

 Raena paws at the mop Raena checks out the mop

 

 

Yep sissy, since mommy can’t actually drive the car, she had to order the pawrt and it won’t be here till Tuesday. Why don’t you run the carpet monster and I’s will help mommy mop.

 

 Dezi vacuums

 

 

     Sure Raena, whatever you say…as if. MOL 

 

Then we can play. I’s can’t wait fur our surpurrise. (Dezi and Raena run off excitedly and play zoomies with the piddle pads in the bathroom

 

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

Chatting Cats: And The Catastrophes Just Keep Coming

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We got word this meownin’ from the last of our furiends in the path of those terrible hurricanes; that all are safe. What a relief!!! Seems there’s been some damage to purr-opurrty, but no damage to the peeps or anipals.

 

 Dezi leaves the chair

Ah Kittens!!! It’s the lawn crew. Better go check UTB fur intruders.

 

 

          (Dezi meows from down the hall because she heard the lawn crew and went to check fur intruders UTB <under the bed>) Me was so happy to hear that our furiends were safe Raena. We are so blest to have so many wonderful purrayin’ furiends.

 

 Raena lays on chair back looking down the hall

 

 

We sure are sissy. There’s gonna be a lot of clean up, repairs and relocatin’, but at least our furiends are still together and safe. So many peeps and anipals got separated in these storms. We’re purrayin’ really hard that everypawdy is reunited soon.

 

          (Still meowing from UTB) That we are Raena, that we are. What were you and mommy doin’ with the hood up on the car yesfurday?

 

 Raena in stroller

 

 

Oh sissy, mommy’s so furustrated. We had to go to the store to get some more taters fur mommy and some more of that sticky stuffs to keep her teethies in her mouth. When we got home, we heard this bubblin’ and gurglin’ sound and then suddenly without any warnin’, the car started steamin’. ‘Pawrently water and somethin’ called coolant splattered everywhere and dumped out a puddle under the car. Mommy popped open the hood to take a look. (Raena rolls her eyes and snickers) Like she actually knew what she was lookin’ at. MOL  Mommy could see that most everything was wet. She shook her head and started cryin’. She told me how tired she was as she strolled me back to the house. I’s not sure mommy has much fight left in her sissy. We just can’t ever seem to get ahead of our own little catastrophes. I’s say, shame on that stinky car fur breakin’ again.

 

          (Dezi meows from the bedroom door as the lawn crew has moved to the other side of the purr-opurrty and quieted a bit) Well Raena, there is one up side to the car breakin’. Mommy had to cancel your VET ‘pointment and her teeth relinin’ ‘pointment. Without a car, she can’t very well get to Ardmore.

 

Raena lays in mommy's lap

 

 

Well sissy, while I’s might not wanna go to the VET, I’s do know that it’s necessary sometimes. And fur sure, mommy needs to be able to get to the dentist office. We need to purray fur mommy and the car. I’s don’t know what mommy’s gonna do ‘bout the car, but she’s gotta figger out a way to have it checked out so we can at least know what it would cost to fix it. With the wheelchair broke and now the car too, we’re purretty much house bound. I’s purretty sure mommy’s depression is at an all time high.

 

 

 Dezi lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

          (Dezi meows from behind mommy’s sitting chair as the lawn crew is quiet and must be on a break) Me agrees Raena. Me just doesn’t unnerstand why things happen the way they do?. (Hearing the lawn crew start up again, Dezi runs back UTB and meows over her shoulder) Why don’t you give mommy some extra luvvin’ Raena. Me will take over when the lawn crew leaves.

 

Raena lays in mommy's lap and gets loving

Ain’t nuffin’ better than mommy luvvin’.

 

 

I’s will sissy. But, you really need to get a grip. The lawn crew can’t get to you. You know mommy would never let anypawdy or anythin’ hurt you. I’s gonna go get some mommy luvvin’ now. When you decide to come out from UTB, maybe we can play.

 

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