Blest Sunday: Tactful/less Chatting Cats

(Mommy clears away the breakfast dishes and Dezi heads up the Liberty tree with Raena in pursuit. Dezi reaches the top first and turns and hisses at Raena who reaches out and swipes Dezi’s back leg.)

Quit tryin’ to trip me Raena!!!

 

 Dezi and Raena on cat tree and Raena sticks her tongue out

Are you stickin’ your tongue out at me?

 

          Well then quit hissin’ at me sissy.

 

Raena hanging on the Liberty cat tree playing whacky paw with Dezi

Me didn’t hiss at ya’ till ya’ tried to trip me.

 

          Well, what ‘bout earlier?

 

You jumped on top of me Raena. Wha’d ya’ expect me to do?.

 

          I’s just wanted to play sissy.

 

 Dezi bathing on top of the Liberty cat tree

 

You always wanna play Raena. Ya’ know sometimes it’s nice to just lay back and take a nap. Or fur instance, after a meal, some of us like to wash up.

 

 Raena bathes on the Liberty cat tree

 

          I’s like a good nap as much as any kitty sissy, and cleanin’ up is a must. ‘Specially ifin I’s wanna ketch the attentions of a certain sweet boy cat. But mine’s neck furs always get caught in mine’s mouth. They seem to always be in mine’s way. Do you have that purroblem sissy? 

 

 

Dezi plays with Christmas gifts

Me did when me was a little baby kitty girl Raena, but not so much anymore. Your neck ruff is longer than me’s is. But me’s bloomers are longer than yours. And me’s whiskers are longer than yours too.

 

 

 Raena profile from the back of the chair

 

          You don’t know that fur sure, sissy. Mommy says mine’s whiskers are purrlenty long. I’s just keep getting’ into things and breakin’ off the ends. 

 

Yep, mommy hates it when ya’ do that. She says our whiskers are very m’purrtant, and we should take care of them.

 

          I’s saw her pickin’ one up off the carpet the other day. Does she plan on tryin’ to glue it back on me or somethin’?

 

No silly. Mommy just luvs us so much she likes to keep those whiskers we shed. She’s got a jar full of ‘em fur each kitty she’s ever luvved. Me knows it sounds really strange, but she is only human after all. And those humans do some really weird stuffs sometimes. 

 

          No kitten sissy. Those whiskers ain’t gonna do her any good. Mommy’s wider than even your whiskers. (Raena snickers under her breath

 

 

Dezi pats Raena on the head

(Dezi lets out a little giggle and then gets serious)

RaenaBelle Maycee!!!

(Dezi tries to hold back the grin and laugh growing inside her)

You should be ashamed of yourself. That’s not nice. 

 

          What? I’s was just meowin’ the truth. Mommy says we should always tell the truth, no matter what.

 

We should Raena. But sometimes, you just shouldn’t meow anythin’, ‘specially ifin the truth isn’t nice or would hurt somepawdy’s feelings.

 

          Nope sissy, that’s not what mommy says. I’s purretty sure she says to always tell the truth, even ifin it hurts.

 

 Dezi lays on top of the Liberty tree looking down

 

 

Raena, you’re still young and haven’t learned everythin’ just yet. There’s this thing called tact. It’s the way you meow those not so nice truths so that you don’t hurt anypawdy’s feelings.

 

           Oh yeah? Well then just how would you meow that mommy’s wide.

 

Uh, well, uhm, (Dezi meowmbles under her breath) You just don’t meow it Raena. That’s how ya’ meow it, you just don’t.

 

          Well that’s no fun. Hey, did you hear mommy talkin’ ‘bout her big ‘pointment tomorrow?

 

Yep, me sure did. It’s gonna be a long night. Her ‘pointment’s early in the meownin’, so she’ll have to stay up all night to be able to go. Me’s kinda hopin’ she takes you. Me would have the whole house all to me’s self. Me could nap and bathe and do all kinds of things in peace and quiet. Least fur a little while.

 

 Raena in tiger kitty holster

 

          I’s hope she takes me too. I’s can show off mine’s purretty new harness and leash. And what do you mean, peace and quiet? We won’t be gone fur very long. But I’s not loud. The neighbors are loud. But not me.

 

You sure could, Raena. And yes, the neighbors are loud, but you can be too. Anyways, that’s the plan. When mommy’s gettin’ ready to go, you need to dance ‘round and drag out your harness, so mommy’ll know you wanna go really bad. ‘Course that also means that mommy’s gonna be really tired. So me told her we could skip our regular Service Cat Monday posty this week. But just this once.

 

          But we’ll be back on Wednesday, right sissy?

 

Absolutely Raena. And we’ll have somethin’ on Wednesday that nopawdy’s gonna wanna miss.

 

 Raena enjoys a LumaSoothe treatment

 

          We’re havin’ a give away too, aren‘t we sissy? This will be mine’s furst give away ever. I’s so excited I’s can’t hardly wait.

 

 

 Dezi enjoys a LumaSoothe treatment while laying in mommy's lap

That’s right, Raena. We’ve kinda been teasin’ everypawdy with an occasional foto. And furinally, the day has come to meow all ‘bout it. You know, we are so blest. Bein’ Influencers allow us oppurrtunities we might not otherwise get. We really do like tryin’ out new things to tell our furiends ‘bout. But the greatest blessing we have are our furiends.

 

          I’s agree sissy. I’s luvs our furiends so much. Did you see that we got another donation fur mommy’s dental fundraiser? We so wanna say fanky fank ya’ to our furiends over at Hairballs and Hissyfits. Ifin ya’ haven’t met Amarula, Frodo and Zulu, you should go by and check ‘em out. And ifin you would like to help mommy get her much needed dental work done, you can donate directly through paypal without any fees. Just use our email, lexi.dezi@yahoo.com, or you can also donate through the fundraiser by clickin’ here. We really purreciate all those who have helped so far. We’re ‘bout half way to our goal and mommy’s mouth feelin’ all better. Hopefully, she’ll be smilin’ again real soon. She’s a little embarrassed to smile right now, and the air makes her teeth hurt worse; so she tries to keep her mouth shut most of the time.

 

 Dezi lays in lap and gets loving

 

Those things are all true Raena. But we are blest to have a mommy that still puts us furst, no matter how she feels. And we’ve been blest with some nice Spring weather this comin’ week. That means lots of strolls fur us. We can hear the birds singin’ and the wind blowin’ the furesh new leaves that are growin’ on the trees outside. Mommy says we’re in fur at least one more cold snap befur Spring furinally arrives to stay. You know, each day is a gift, a blessing to celebrate just bein’ alive. We are so fankful to have so much luv in our lives. ‘Member to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. No matter how bad things might seem, there is always a blessing just waitin’ to be found.

          And don’t furget the Sunday Selfies with the Kitties Blue sissy. Maybe a couple of those Wednesday teaser fotos would be good. We hope you’ll all stop by to find out what it is.

 

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

Chatting Cats: Embarrassing, Scary and Delicious

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We sure do wanna fank you all fur your luv and suppurrt. Mommy says it may have been a year since Lexi left her, but it feels like yesfurday. Most of ya’ unnerstand dat feelin’; and we just want you to know, you’re not alone. Anyways, besides the blues, mommy’s also been feelin’ a little out of sorts and extra achy. At furst she just thought it was cuz of the crazy weather and her teeth purroblems. But she’s had a horse and a frog wagin’ war in her throat lately, and coughin’ too. Now I’s not know how a frog much less a horsey can fit in mommy’s throat, but she sure sounds funny when she talks.

 

 Dezi lays on the Liberty Cat Tree

 

          Raena, don’t make fun of mommy. That’s not nice.

 

Come on sissy, you know she sounds funny. You said so yourself.

 

          That’s different. Me was talkin’ to you in purr-ivate. Me wasn’t tellin’ the world.

 

 Dezi stand on the house on the Liberty Cat tree

 

Oh purrlease, you know we blab everythin’. Anyways, when we went to see mommy’s doctor yesfurday, he wasn’t sure he believed that mommy was sick. He thought she was just havin’ some allergy and sinus issues. So some lady came in and stole some of mommy’s bloods. You know, they didn’t shave her neck or nuffin’. They just stuck somethin’ in her finger and it was all over. Them VETs’ could learn a little somethin’ ’bout blood stealin’. You know, mommy be a redheaded white woman, but when they stuck her, she was a redheaded ghosty. I’s was meowin’ and goin’ crazy pants inside mine’s stroller. Mommy dropped her head ‘tween her knees and Doc came in and asked what all the fuss was ‘bout. He took one look at mommy and ran over and held her in the chair. After a hunnerd few minutes, mommy raised her head, and she was back to bein’ mine’s redheaded white mommy and not mine’s ghosty mommy. ‘Course, I’s had calmed down once Doc came in the room to help mommy, so I’s laid peacefully in the stroller lissenin’ to mommy and Doc talk.

 

Raena lays in the stroller

They chatted ‘bout me and how things have changed fur the worse in medicine, and a little ‘bout pawlitics while waitin’ fur those blood test results. Furinally there was a knock on the door and the blood stealin’ thief appeared and handed Doc a piece of paper. He turned and looked at mommy and said, “How are you still walking around?” Seems mommy’s body be fightin’ the infection and sicks like crazy. So he faxed a script fur another antibiotic over to the furmacy and we all said our goodbyes and see ya’ laters. And with that mommy and me headed out to said furmacy to get mommy’s medicine.

 

 Dezi checks out Raena in her new harness

 

Things were goin’ purretty good till we left the furmacy and got to the car. Mommy just missed the step off the curb and down we went. Yep, she was holdin’ on to the stroller, so I’s tumbled over too. Mommy says she was so embarrassed. There she lay on the pavement, with piddle pads flyin’ everywhere. (we keep a few in the bottom of the stroller, just in case) I’s don’t know ‘bout this embarrassin’, but it sure nuff was scary. Mommy recovered like any good kitty would. She looked ‘round and pulled herself up with the help of the car. Yes, of course she pulled me up too. And then we sashayed over to the car door to load up like nuffin’ ever happened.

 

 Raena lays on top of the Liberty Cat Tree

 

When we got loaded in the car, mommy started cryin’ and ‘pawlogized fur lettin’ me fall. I’s was fine. I’s was just glad mommy was okay too. She’s a little extra bruised up, but all in all, she’s okay. After all that excitement, we headed straight fur home. Without even thinkin’, mommy popped her furst antibiotic dose in her mouth and swallowed it down. Then she went online to look it up. Seems, Cipro is used to treat serious infections; but it has some purretty scary side effects. So, we sure would purreciate any purrayers you can spare.

 

 Dezi checks out the AeroGarden

‘Member these cute little lettuce plants?

 

Now, do ya’ll wanna hear somethin’ cool? Mommy had her furst grown by her own hands salad this week. Yep, she was furinally able to harvest enuff leaves to make a salad. She said it was amazin’. But she also thinks she must be doin’ somethin’ wrong, cuz our garden doesn’t look or yield as much as the ones on the AeroGarden site.

 

 AeroGarden Lettuce Leaves

Check out those salad leaves fresh from the AeroGarden

 

          Yeah Raena, you’re right. But we did tell mommy that fur her furst time, she did a great job. Her lettuce pods have quite a few little baby sprouts that should eventually turn into more salad leaves. She’s been readin’ up and thinks her next growin’ venture should be Romaine. Most of the reviews talk ‘bout how quickly the Romaine grows.

 

I’s can’t wait sissy. I’s a really good helper. I’s tried to help mommy pick leaves fur her salad, but she kept shooin’ me away. I’s don’t know why she didn’t want mine’s help, do you?

 

          Me doesn’t know Raena. Ya’ reckon it could have somethin’ to do with the fact that you tried to eat a few? 

 

Who? Me? I’s was just makin’ sure they were ready, and not poison. You know, like a taste tester.

 

          A taste tester? Yeah right. Whatever. Anyways, let’s wrap this up and go play.

Chatting Cats: The Bobble Hat Saga

Hey!!! Is Anypawdy out there?!! It’s me, RaenaBelle!!!

(Raena sees mommy coming and runs)

 

Raena hides behind the Liberty cat tree

She’ll never find me here.

 

 

Help!!! You won’t believe what mommy’s makin’ me do!!!

 

 

Dezi lays on the Liberty Cat Tree and looks into the house

          (Dezi gets up from her nap and saunters into the room with Raena)

          What are you catterwallin’ ‘bout Raena? 

 

 Raena peeks out from behind the Liberty Cat tree

 

(Raena crouches down and looks around the corner and then back at Dezi)

Look out sissy, mommy’ll be comin’ fur you next!!! She’s got the flashy box in one hand and somethin’ strange in the other. She’ll be comin’ fur you too.

 

 

 Dezi stand on the house on the Liberty Cat tree

 

     (Mommy stands in the bedroom where she had followed Raena and calls out to Dezi and Raena. Both girls had ran past her toward the living room.) Girls, come on. This was your idea. Ya’ll wanted to help Parsley and Smoochie and all those kitties who are still waitin’ fur homes. This is important. And it’s for a good cause.

 

 Dezi wipes her eyes atop the Liberty cat tree

 

          (Dezi paws at her eyes still trying to wake up from her nap)

          What’s mommy yappin’ ‘bout, Raena? 

 

Bobble Hat and mandala coloring book from Bionic Basil

You know. That time travelin’ bobble hat that be goin’ ‘round Blogville. Fur every kitty that wears it and meows ‘bout it, Basil’s housemates Parsley and Smoochie will donate 2.00 pounds (sorry, we don’t have a pound symbol here, just a dollar one.) to the Burton Joyce Cat Rescue. It’s a great cause, but you went and volunteered us to wear a hat!!! What were you thinkin’?

 

 

          (Dezi meows sleepily)

          A hat? A bobble hat? We’re s’posed to wear a hat? Nah, me wouldn’t agree to that?. Did me?

 

Hmmmpht  Several times!!! And now, the hat’s here and mommy’s got it!!! Basil’s mommy was so sweet and sent mommy her Mandala colorin’ book and included our very own bobble hat.

 

 

 Mandala's on Mondays with Cat coloring book by Catherine Garnell

 

          Me saw the colorin’ book, that was really cool and mommy can’t wait to start colorin’. But me don’t ‘member anythin’ ‘bout no hat.

 

(Mommy appears at the door with the camera in one hand and the bobble hat in the other and picks up Raena)

Aaaaaack  She’s here!!!

(Raena struggles and reaches out for Dezi)

 

Raena looks up at mommy while wearing the bobble hat

Why are you doin’ this to me mommy?

 

 

Help Sissy, she’s got me!!!

 

 Raena sits on the Liberty Cat Tree while wearing the bobble hat

 

          (Dezi lays down and yawns)

          Better you than me, kid.

          (The house falls quiet and Dezi drifts off for another nap. Before she can even wake up, mommy grabs her up and places the bobble hat on her)

          What? Mooooooooommy, me doesn’t wanna wear a hat.

          (Dezi looks up at mommy)

 

Dezi lays on the vanity while wearing the bobble hat

Fur kittens sakes mommy. At least get a decent foto.

 

 

          Fine. But just this once.

(Raena appears at the door and starts laughing)

Me told you, that you were next.

 

 Dezi lays on the vanity while wearing the time traveling bobble hat

It’ll do. Basil, Parsley, Smoochie, ya’ll owe me big fur this one. MOL

 

          (Photos taken and hat removed, Dezi starts re-fluffing her floofy fur)

          Don’t tell me we have to model the socks mommy won from Three Chatty Cats too?.

 

 Best friends socks and coffee mug

 

Fank the cats, No. But they are really cool, and mommy’s luvvin’ her new coffee mug too. All kiddin’ aside, we didn’t mind wearin’ the bobble hat. It’s fur a great cause, and we’re all ‘bout helpin’ kitties in need. We wish every kitty had a luvvin’ furever home like we do. So any time we have the oppurrtunity to help, we will.

 Raena looks away while wearing the bobble hat

Alright mommy, dat’s enuff with da hat. Can we have

some treats now?

 

Well sissy, you already did. We did wanna mention that we think we’re back to bein’ able to leave comments on blogger. We think what happens, is that we get marked as spam on blogger every once in a while, and till that purrson un-spams us, we can’t comment. We’re not accusin’ anypawdy, cuz it’s pawssible that blogger is the one that flags us and not an actual purrson. But it does take an actual purrson to un-spam us. So fank you to whoever it was that retrieved us from your spam folder.

 

 Raena lays on the small perch and looks our the front door.

 

Well, that’s it fur us today. Mommy got to rest the last couple of days and her neck kink is better. So we’ll be ‘round to see ya’ just as soon as we can. We hope you all have a pawsum weekend.

 

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

 

Do you (your cat) mind wearing hats?

Do you (your human) enjoy the adult coloring books?

Do you want to participate in the Time Traveling Bobble Hat to help kitties in need? If so, please let Basil know (link above).

How High Can Cats Jump

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s got so much to tell ya’, I’s don’t even know where to start.

 

 Dezi lays in the wheelchair while Raena meows t her from the top of the stroller.

 

          Calm down Raena. Ya’ don’t have to say everythin’ today.

 

 

But Dezi, I’s wanna tell everypawdy ‘bout mommy’s helper and mines new game. Mommy says she’s so purroud of me.

 

 Dezi lays on the Liberty cat tree

          What? Me thinks you’ve got things mixed up Raena. Mommy’s purroud of how your trainin’ is goin’, not your new game.

 

Raena lays in mommys lap for loving

Oh Dezi, just cuz she doesn’t say it doesn’t mean she ain’t purroud of me. Did you see her face this meownin’ when I’s jump straight up in da air and hit da ceilin’? 

 

 

          Yep Raena, me saw it. And ifin you think that was purride, you hit your head too hard. Cuz that’s what mommy was thinkin’. You know how much she worries ‘bout us. And every time you go slidin’ across the floor and hit the wall, mommy cringes. When she picks you up and starts rubbin’ ya’ all over, it ain’t luv rubs Raena, she’s checkin’ fur broken bones. 

 

 Dezi and Raena lay on the cat tree and small perch to look out the window and chat

 

Oh sissy, you’re such a furry fuddy duddy. I’s bet you played the slide game too when you were little.

 

          That’s the thing Raena, you ain’t “little” anymore. And when you hit the walls, it makes a really loud thud. Just like when you jumped up this meownin’ and hit your head on the ceilin’. Ya’ know, scrunchin’ yourself up into a ball and jumpin’ straight up in the air might be amazin’, but what’s the purrpuss? What are you tryin’ to do? 

 

I’s just havin’ fun sissy. Ya’ know, I’s looked it up, and us kitties are said to be able to jump, 6 to 7 times our body length. That would mean I’s could jump higher than our ceilin’; but cuz it’s there, I’s’ll never really know. I’s was knockin’ the magnets off the fridge, but mommy didn’t seem to like that much. So I’s just decided to see how high I’s could jump.

 

 Dezi sits on the brown cat tree in her signature pose

 

          Well, now ya’ know. You’re not a jack in the box, and mommy hates it when you hit your head, so ya’ reckon you can stop now? 

 

I’s don’t know sissy, it’s so much fun. And no, there’s no fotos yet. Mommy worries too much to think ’bout gettin’ the camera. Anyways, I’s wanna tell everypawdy ‘bout mommy’s helper. Furst, we all wanna say fanky fank ya’ fur all your purrayers and good thoughts. But we did get a little giggle when we would read your comments ‘bout our helper. Ya’ might not have noticed, but when we talked ‘bout ‘em, we used words like, helper, worker, they, them, and so on. Most all of ya’ referred to them as she, her, lady and such.

 

 Raena lays atop the Liberty Cat tree

You’re doin’ a good job O. Need some help?

 

 

Well, the worker mommy hired is a him. Yep, we’ll just call him O. He’s a young’un at 20 years old. But he has a 3 year old son and girly furiend that he lives with. He has Rotty doggies what just had puppies. Yeah, we’re gonna have to work on that one. I’s got good vibes the day he came out and applied fur the job. Sis Dezi didn’t really meet him that day, she was nappin’. But she met him the day he started workin’ fur us. 

 

 

          Me thought O seemed like a purretty nice young man too. He doesn’t know a lot ‘bout kitties, but he seems to like us too. We told ya’ how pawsumly he cleaned our Liberty cat tree. And the next work day he got all the tracked litter cleaned up in the pawdee box room. The whole pawdee box room got a spic and span shine cleanin’. Me was so impurressed me had to go and check it out. He didn’t seem to mind me checkin’ his work and layin’ in the fureshly cleaned sink, so that’s a good start. 

 

Raena looks over from atop the Liberty Cat tree

Wha’cha’ doin’? I’s can dust too.

 

I’s didn’t wait till he was finished sissy. I’s followed him ‘round, just in case he might need some help. We had a blast yesfurday playin’ in the boxes. He was doin’ some dustin’ and tossin’ old magazines and I’s was jumpin’ from pile to pile to pile and box to trash box. I’s made sure none of our toys got thrown in the trash box by mistake. All in all, we really like him and hope it works out and he keeps comin’ to work. But he was a little upset when he left yesfurday cuz he doesn’t really unnerstand the pay schedule.

 

Raena looks out at the worker from atop the Liberty Cat tree

I’s think ya’ missed a spot. I’s gettin’ purretty tired now, ya’ reckon

you’re gonna need mines help?

 

He’ll get paid every two weeks. His furst day was actually the day the time period ended, so his furst check’s gonna be fur one day of work. The next time period will be fur the full two weeks and so on. Fur some reason, he seems to think he’s gonna work fur a whole month and a half befur he ever gets a check. We tried to ‘splain that’s not true, but he was confused and sure it is. It’s been so long since mommy worked, she doesn’t recall the specifics, so ifin anypawdy can ‘splain it better shoot us an email. In da meantime, help us purray that he doesn’t give up and quit.

 

 Raena sleeps atop the Liberty cat tree

I’s just gonna close mines eyes fur a bit O. Ifin ya’ need

mines help, just holler.

 

 

Mommy says young’uns aren’t taught job hunting skills and pay rates and time tables anymore. They get thrown in to the work force with very little knowledge of how it all works. They’re so used to immediate gratification, that they get easily frustrated. It’s unfurtunate that kids today don’t know how to dress fur interviews, write resumes and be respawnsible and reliable. Mommy ‘members a time when she was applyin’ fur a waitressin’ job. She showed up in a purrfessional skirt and top, resume’ in hand. The manager was so impurressed, he gave mommy the assistant managers job instead. She wasn’t qualified at that time, but she quickly learned. And she got that oppurrtunity cuz she had been taught job huntin’ skills in high school. Anyways, we hope it works out with O, cuz we do really like him; and we’ve got an inspection comin’ up next week.

Blest Sunday: Love and Acceptance

(Mommy rolls up to the kitchen counter to make breakfast for Dezi and Raena. Dezi sits and watches from a perch on the brown cat tree. Raena comes zooming up the hall, around the corner and leaps onto the top of the stroller. Mommy starts singing one of her many made up breakfast songs and Raena jumps down and runs over to rub against mommy’s legs. And she spots her new favorite prey toy. Raena grabs the toy and begins her hunt, catch, kill routine, while mommy finishes preparing the brekky plates.)

 Dezi sits on the brown cat tree in her signature pose

 

Me sees you found your new favorite prey toy Raena.

 

Raena lays in mommy's lap

This is about as good as it gets. Mommy tried to find a foto that showed off mines long arms, but…

 

          I’s sure did sissy. I’s so blest to have such long arms. I’s even found mines second favorite prey toy too.

 

(Raena tosses the toy in the air and catches it and runs down the hall and back to the kitchen. She drops the toy, bats it around a bit until it gets pushed under the refrigerator. She then lays down and stretches her arm under the fridge and feels around for her “prey”. She tries to flatten herself out enough to see under the fridge. Chortling happily, her arm emerges with the prey toy attached to her claws and she grabs it up in her mouth and tosses it in the air again and again.

Mommy finally announces breakfast is ready and turns to make her a cup of coffee. Dezi runs to the living room with Raena following suit. Halfway there, Raena turns and goes back to the kitchen to wait on mommy. Mommy puts the plates in her lap and heads to the living room. Raena saunters slowly in front of mommy, tail held high, while Dezi watches from the edge of the living room. Mommy puts both plates down and rubs each girls chin and tells them how much she loves them and heads back to the kitchen to get her coffee. Both girls follow mommy until she’s safely seated and sipping coffee. Then they settle in to eat. After eating a bit, the girls settle in for their first after breakfast bath and chat)

 

 Dezi lays in mommys lap for loving

You know Raena, we are very blest. We are so loved that we sometimes take things for granted. Y, We couldn’t ‘magine not havin’ a great brekky every meownin’. Me never gets tired of hearin’ mommy sing; but me’s never given a thought to what it might be like to not have a mommy who happily makes our meals everyday. You know, we joked ‘bout you hunting, ketching and killing your brekky the other day; but there are kitties out there that really do have to do that.

 

 Raena lays at mommy's feet.

Ignore mommy’s leg. She got a little over excited with self tanner

          Yeah sissy. I’s wouldn’t wanna have to live like that. It makes me so sad to think that some kitties don’t know the love and security of havin’ a furever home, a furever mommy, or wonderful furever furiends. Y, Just this past week, mommy got a box from one of those furever furiends that you made befur I’s was even born. I’s been really blest to have been accepted by all of your furiends. Now, they be mines furiends too.

Oh Raena, sis Lexi and me always said we had the bestest furiends in the universe. No matter what, they are there to luv and support us. When we furst got our catputer, we never could have ‘magined there was so many pawsum peeps in the world. And you’re right, they accepted you and luv you just like they do me. We can’t begin to fank you all enuff. You all mean so much to us.

 

Raena looks out from the top of the Liberty cat tree

          Hey, sissy. did you see what was in that last box mommy got? Ya’ know with everything that’s been goin’ on with her, she’s been feelin’ kinda down. So much of what’s wrong can’t be fixed. And it looks like it might be quite a while befur she can get her teeth pains fixed, so she’s just been feelin’ a little blue. She says getting’ old sure ain’t fun. Anyways, awnty Anonymous sent mommy some henna so she could cover up those gray hairs that have been takin’ over her head fur.

Yep Raena, me saw it. It seems kinda silly, but sometimes it’s the small silly things that can make you feel better. It’s been quite some time since mommy was able to afford to cover her gray furs, so lots of time she just doesn’t even look in the mirror. She gave up on that husband findin’ years ago, and says we luv her no matter the color of her hair furs, so she just didn’t worry ‘bout it. But she’s pawfully glad she can now fix it. You’ve never seen it, but just wait. She looks so funny walkin’ ‘round with mud in her hair. But let me tell ya’, stand way back, or you’ll end up with red furs. Me knows from experience. Me had a red dot on mes head when me was a kitten. Like you, me had to be right up under mommy and in to everythin’ she did, and some of that mud got on me just long enuff to change mes fur color.

 

          Really sissy? Well what ifin I’s wanna look like mommy and have red furs?

 

Raena, you’re so silly. You be bootyful just the way you are. And natural or not, henna ain’t good fur kitties. 

 

          Aaaaaaaaaw Fanky fanks sissy. I’s think you be bootyful too.
