Chatting Cats: Smarty Pants and Basket Bunnies

Raena, what are you doin’?

 

 Raena looks up from her plate of food with a little bite stuck to her lip/

 

          Did you read all the comments on our Service Cat Monday posty sissy? Everybody thinks I’s so smart.

 

 Dezi watching Raena while they eat

 

Me read them, and you are smart. But, you shouldn’t let that give you the big head. ‘Member, mommy says it’s always better to be humble. Peeps don’t like a smarty pants.

 

          Just what does that mean, anyways? What’s a smarty pants. Cuz, I’s not wear any pants, lessen ya’ count mine’s bloomers. And while we’re at it, what’s this smarty pants fone? Ya’ know when we went to mommy’s doctors ‘pointment last week, mommy furgot to take the camera…as usual. And she was sayin’ how she needed one of those smarty pants fones so she’d always have a camera available.

 

Why? What did you do?

 

 Dezi and Raena eat breakfast next to each other

 

          I’s didn’t do anythin’ sissy, but there was this gigantor bunny rabbit outside the farmacy that mommy said she’d like to take our foto with. He was rockin’ and wavin’ in the wind, and I’s not so sure I’s would’a wanted to have mine’s foto taken with him. But, mommy says it would’a been sooooooooo cute.

 

 

Yeah Raena, mommy likes things like that. She thinks we’d look so adorable up next to those decorations.

 

          What kind’a decoration is a big ole bunny with a basket, sissy?

 

It signifies Easter, Raena. Me’s doesn’t actually unnerstand it all either, cuz mommy says Easter is all ‘bout the resurrection of Jesus. But it seems that some peeps celebrate by hidin’ funny colored eggs, and then carryin’ ‘round baskets and huntin’ fur those eggs. And me thinks they believe this bunny called Peter Cottontail lays ‘em. And of course as with any human holiday, there’s chocolates involved too.

          That don’t sound right sissy. Bunnies don’t lay eggs??. Do they??. I’s gonna ask mommy ‘bout all this, or maybe Speedy. He’s a bunny, surely he knows ’bout all this?.

 

 

Fine, don’t believe me. See ifin me answers any more of your questions.

 

          Oh sissy, I’s believe you. Don’t get hissy. (Raena mumbles under her breath)

You still haven’t told me what a smarty pants is, or a smarty pants fone fur that matter. (Raena turns to look at Dezi and excitedly meows

Hey, have you been workin’ on mine’s birthday pawrty?

 

Me has, Raena. But what ifin it was gonna be a surprise? You shouldn’t be askin’ ‘bout it.

 

 Dezi and Raena looking at each other over a few Yeowww toys

 

          But it’s not a surprise, right? Cuz we’ve all been talkin’ ‘bout it?.

 

 

No Raena, it’s not a surprise. What do you think ‘bout this fur your invitation?

 

 

Raena’s Party Invite

 

          That’s really cool sissy. Are we havin’ a circus?

 

Maybe Raena. Would you like a circus?

 

          I’s don’t know sissy, I’s never been to a circus befur. 

 

 Dezi and Raena laying on the Liberty cat tee

Well, our ‘pawrtment purrobably isn’t big enuff fur a circus Raena, but don’t worry, it’ll be lots of fun. Birthday’s are always fun here. Mommy always wants us to feel really special and extra luvved. Come on, let’s go finish brekky and take a nap. We’ve got an inspection today, and the exterminator’s here too. So mommy’s gonna have to get ready to mop. Those exterminators’ always make a huge mess by sprayin’ that poison in the middle of the floor and all up and down the walls. Mommy says their vision must be worse than hers. MOL  That’s why she likes to spray our ‘pawrtment herself. Besides, the stuffs they use is so watered down, it doesn’t really kill anythin’. 

 

          That Bengal stuffs mommy uses really works good. But it should; after all, it’s named after a cat. MOL  Do we have a play date fur tomorrow sissy? You know, mommy’s goin’ back to the dental surgeon fur her recheck, and again, she plans to leave both of us here.

 

 

 Dezi and Raena look outside from their perches near the door.

 

Yep, Raena, me’s invited some furiends over to play and keep you occupied while mommy’s gone. (Hearing the alert alarms of other apartments getting closer, and seeing the lawn crew’s truck drive up, Dezi heads down from her perch atop the Liberty tree and meows to Raena)

You better hurry Raena, it’s fixin’ to get really loud ‘round here.

Chatting Cats: Planning A Party & Give Away Winner

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

 

 Raena lays on the back of the chair while Dezi looks up at her from the seat of the chair

 

          What are you caterwaulin’ ‘bout now, Raena?

 

I’s not caterwaulin’ sissy. As a matter of fact, I’s asked mommy what caterwaulin’ is and she says, I’s never caterwaul.

 

          Yeah, well, mommy luvs you. And she luvs it when we meow to her, so that’s why she said that. Trust me, you caterwaul.

 

 

Hey, sissy? Nellie asked me ifin I was gonna be a minx like her, when I’s grow up. What’s a minx?

 

 Dezi lays in chair and looks pretty

 

          Uh, well, Uh, You’re too young to be learnin’ ‘bout those things. You just keep havin’ fun on your little play dates and don’t worry ‘bout what you’ll be when ya’ grow up.

 

 

 Raena lays at mommy's feet.

 

But sissy, It’s mine’s furst birthday month. Aren’t I’s grown up?

 

 

          Trust me Raena, you ain’t no where near grown up. There’s purrlenty of time befur you have to make those kinds of decisions. As a matter of fact, me invited Alberto and Oliver of the Feline Opines over fur a play date next week when mommy has to go back to the dental surgeon fur her check up. Maybe we could just have a pawrty?

 

A pawrty? Like mine’s birthday pawrty?

 

 

 

          Not your birthday pawrty, Raena. Mommy wants to be here fur that. But maybe like a purree birthday pawrty. We could invite Shoko and Kali, Snoops and Kommando Kitty, Kosmo, Phenny, and you could ask Simon, and maybe Teddy would like to come. And some of me’s cat scout furiends might wanna come too? And maybe… 

 

We fur sure gotta invite Nellie, sissy. (Raena meows under her breath) I’s gotta find out ‘bout this minx thing.

 

          Of course we’ll invite our dear furiend Nellie. Hmmmmm This is startin’ to look like a birthday pawrty. Maybe we just stick with Alberto and Oliver next week and well get invites out to everypawdy to come over fur your birthday pawrty on Furiday April 21st. 

 

 Raena sits on perch at door and looks up

 

Oh sissy, that would be Pawsum!!! I’s can’t hardly wait. Ya’ reckon everypawdy will come?

 

          Sure they will Raena. (Dezi crosses her paws behind her back and meows under her breath) And ifin they don’t, we’ll still have a good time.

 

Oh sissy, you’re the bestest sissy in the universe. (Raena tries to hug Dezi)

 

 Raena hugs Dezi while she lays on the brown cat tree

 

          Yeah, yeah, okay kit, that’s enuff. Get off me now.

 

Fanky fank you sissy. I’s also wanted to announce the winner of our LumaSoothe give away. Ya’ know it was mine’s furst ever give away, and it was so much fun. I’s wanna do that again. Anyways, the winner is awnty Vicky Denison of the Eastside Cats. We see some happy, purrin’ cats in the very near future.

 

          That’s great Raena. Me luvs give aways too. We should also tell everypawdy that the pawsum peeps over at LumaSoothe are still offurin’ $20.00 off the purchase of the LumaSoothe thru April 22, 2017. Just click the foto below and enter coupon code: dezizworld to save.

 

 

LUMASOOTHE-COUPON-20

They were really great peeps to work with sissy. And we should tell everypawdy, to stay tuned. We have another pawsum give away comin’ very soon. (Raena looks around and sees mommy getting dressed) I’s gotta go get ready. Mommy has her regular monthly doctors ‘pointment today, so we’ll be ‘round to visit everypawdy just as soon as we can. We’re also linkin’ up with the Pet Parade.

Blest Sunday: Chatting Cats: Heaps of Happy Tears

Hey Raena, where did you and mommy go the other day to get all those britches she’s been washin’?

 

Dezi and Raena on the Liberty Tree looking at each other

          I’s don’t know sissy, but after we sold our aluminum cans mommy saw a sign and said “Oh my cats Raena, we’ve gotta go back”. We did some kinda middle of the road turn and went into this big store with racks and racks of clothes. She kept throwin’ jeans in this basket till we couldn’t see the bottom anymore.

 

Well how many green papers till all those blue jeans cost?

 

 Raena lays in mommy's lap

 

          What do I’s know ‘bout green papers, sissy? I’s know mommy was happy, and there was purrlenty left over fur treats. What? (Mommy says something to Raena) Oh, okay. Sissy, mommy says they had a bag sale at the Good Will and she got 10 pairs of jeans and a couple dress pants fur $2.00. 

 

 Euro Pro Sewing Machine

 

Oh, dat’s purretty good. Me thinks she has plans to cut some of them off and make some shorts fur summer. That means she’s gonna be draggin’ out the sewin’ machine soon.

 

          Sewin’ Machine? What’s a sewin’ machine. sissy?

 

 Dezi lays in wheelchair

 

Oh Raena, the sewin’ machine is soooooooo much fun. There’s strings fur playin’ everywhere. Altho’ mommy gets really mad when you walk over the foot pedal. Somethin’ ‘bout a needle goin’ thru her finger. So whatever you do, stay away from that pedal. Me knows it looks like fun, but there’s purrlenty of other things to play with.

 

          There’s a foot pedal? Am I’s gonna learn to sew sissy?

 

Nope Raena, sewin’ ain’t on our list of duties. It’s kinda like the carpet monster and mop. They exist, but we don’t have to use ‘em.

 

 Raena lays in the wheelchair

 

          Well that’s good. Cuz you know this wheelchair drivin’ thing isn’t as easy as I’s thought it would be. But it sure is fun, watchin’ you run. MOL

 

That’s not nice Raena. Me just wants to make sure you don’t run over me. You can sure be dangerous with that thing. Besides, you’re not s’posed to be watchin’ me. Maybe that’s why it’s takin’ so long fur you to learn.

 

          Mommy says I’s no more dangerous than you were sissy. And that’s I’s right on schedule.

 

She’s just tryin’ to make you feel better Raena, cuz me’s a wonderful driver.

 

          Sure you are sissy. Like the other day when you ran us into the wall?.

 

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

 

That was your fault Raena. Ifin you hadn’t swiped me’s leg, me wouldn’t have veered off course. Anyways, this isn’t Service Cat Monday, it’s Blest Sunday. And are we ever blest. As we told everypawdy on Furiday, mommy has a ‘pointment to start getting’ her teeths fixed. Ifin anypawdy missed the good mews you can read ‘bout it here. That means the total green papers we need to get all the work done is gonna be less than originally anticipated. Mommy says she’ll have to wait till after the ‘pointment to know exactly how many teeth are removed by the surgeon on Fursday, but she thinks our total will drop by ‘bout a thousand dollars. She will make the adjustment to the fundraiser once she knows fur sure. In the meantime, ifin ya’ wanna help us out, you can donate directly to our paypal at: lexi.dezi@yahoo.com or the fundraiser here.

 

 Raena Selfie woth paw reaching out

 

          That’s such pawsum mews sissy. We’re so excited. And we’ve got a pawssible ride, we just need to lock her in. Ifin anypawdy can spare a purrayer we’d purreciate it. The lady we’re talkin’ to is a little scared to drive in the city. But we know she can do it, we just need her to get the courage to say yes. And we’d also like to say a meowsy big fanky fanks to awnty Debbie, Katie and Waffles fur their donation to help mommy. I’s think that Waffles is a handsum kitty boy. But I’s hear he’s a real ladies mancat. And we also wanna fanky fank our Anonymous Angels. They’ve not only helped with green papers, but also in helpin’ mommy navigate the system, and tryin’ to find mommy a ride.

 

Dat’s right Raena. There’s been a couple times they’ve pulled mommy off the ledge durin’ all of this. And me also wants to say fank you to awnty Vonda and all her kitties. She sent some green papers fur me to get a new harness/vest to match yours and mommy’s furinally well enuff to measure me and get it ordered. Me can’t wait fur it to get here.

 

 Dezi checks out Raena in her new tiger harness

 

          Me either sissy. We’ll be stylin’ together.

 

 Dezi lays in lap and gets loving

 

Sure we will Raena. (Dezi rolls her eyes) Anyways, there’s all the other blessings we’re fankful fur today too. We have a luvvin’ furever home, food in our bellies and on our plates, and the bestest furiends in the universe. We always wanna remind ya’ll to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the many blessings in your lives. No matter what’s goin’ on, there’s always a blessing just waitin’ to be found. Every night we purray and ask God to keep His hands on all our furiends and bless ya’ll abundantly.

 

 Raena a bit distorted

 

          I’s luvs purrayer time, sissy. Let’s not furget to link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies befur we go. (The phone rings and Raena rushes to try to answer it before mommy. Mommy grabs the phone and a short conversation ensues. Mommy begins to cry and say a bunch of thank yous and God bless yous.) OMC, OMC, OMC!!!!! While we was writin’ this very posty, the lady mommy’s been talkin’ to ‘bout takin’ her to her surgery ‘pointment called. Guess what she said?

 

 Enter Here Give Away Graphic

Well Raena, by the tears in mommy’s eyes and the Cheshire grin, It’s a GO!!! Mommy now has a ride to her ‘pointment on Fursday!!! WooHoo (Dezi and Raena zoom thru the house and run up the cat tree and end up together in mommy’s lap) We gotta go and help mommy celebrate. Don’t furget to enter our give away fur that pawsum LumaSoothe by clickin’ the entry photo above. And check out our review here.

Chatting Cats: Is Mommy Losing It

Well, here it is already the 4th day of the Mew Year. We were all sittin’ ‘round this meownin’ thinkin’ ‘bout how quickly time is passing these days; when mommy popped up and said, “You know girls, Time waits for no man.” 

 Dezi and Raena with nip toy

          What did she mean sissy?

 

Oh Raena, me thinks she might have hit her head too hard, fallin’ outta bed or somethin’. Me has no idea what she was talkin’ ‘bout. Sometimes, she just gets lost in thought and blurts out the furst thing that comes to mind.

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

          I’s checked that google thing, and it seems they don’t really know the origins of what she said, but it ain’t an original thought, so at least we know she isn’t losin’ it.

 

Don’t be silly Raena, of course she’s not losin’ it. Mommy just has a ton of stuff in her brain and sometimes it just comes out. Wonder ifin that ever happens to any of our furiends?

 

          Ifin what ever happens? They make no sense? Or just blurt out nonsense?

 

Just cuz we don’t understand doesn’t make it nonsense. Specially  ifin it exists Raena. And you said you found it on google.

 Dezi and Raena look out the front door

          Yeah sissy, but you know mommy’s always sayin’ how stupid google is. And you know that must be true, cuz she hates that word and won’t call anypawdy stupid.

 

Well, that’s true, but me knows mommy’s not losin’ it, and that’s that. Besides, she planted up her new AeroGarden yesfurday. And trust me, that took some sense. And then, she had to outwit you to get the cover back fur one of the seed pods. She was so purroud of her garden Raena, why would you go and steal a plastic cap? 

 Raena checks out the AeroGarden

          I’s couldn’t help mines self sissy. Didn’t you see them? They’re so tiny and just the right size fur carryin’ and battin’ ‘round. I was gonna have sooooooo much fun. Well, till mommy took it back that is. Besides, these are just purractice plants anyways; she hasn’t got any lettuce seeds yet.

 

Purractice or not, mommy would like to be successful. And these plants are herbs she can use to season stuffs.

 Raena oversees the AeroGarden

          She will be sissy. I’s gonna help her.

 

Is that what you call what you were doin’…Help?. Hmmpht  We’ll see. Me thinks it’s purretty cool. The lights come on and off all by themselves. And there’s somethin’ in there that swooshes the water ‘round every once and a while all on it’s own too. We’ll have to ‘member to post updates along the way. But fur now, let’s just go finish brekky. That is after mommy gets your plate uncovered. And don’t ever turn mes plate over again, K?!!!

 

          You wasn’t eatin’ it, and I’s don’t want anythin’ bigger than us to smell it and come and eat us. 

 Dezi lays in mommys' lap for some loving

Ain’t nuffin’ comin’ to eat us Raena. Mommy won’t let it. We’ll be by to visit soon. We’re still waitin’ on the wheelchair batteries, so mommy’s extra slow. 

 

Do you daydream?

Do you ever just blurt out your thoughts?

Are you interested in seeing the progression of mommys’ AeroGarden? 

 

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

Warm And Toasty Christmas Favorites

(Dezi sits and watches the lights blink on and off on the Christmas tree and turns to mommy and meows) Mommy, how many days are left befur Christmas?

 Dezi getting mommy loving and petting.

     6 Days, baby, 6 days.

Me can’t wait. Me just luvs Christmas. And me luvs lookin’ at all da Christmas cards we’ve been getting. 

     Me too sweety.

 Raena checking out a box of Christmas gifts

          I’s luvs Christmas too, mommy.

     I’m glad you like Christmas Raena. What’s been your favorite thing so far?

          Da lights. I’s really like nommin’ da lights.

You’re not s‘posed to nom da lights Raena, you’re only s‘posed to look at ‘em. Dat doesn’t even count as a Christmas activity. (Dezi acts perturbed.)

          Mommy says I’s can pick anythin’ I’s want sissy. (Raena sits back and thinks a bit) I’s know!!! We won a Christmas Stockin’ from our furiends Zorro and Pixie from da Swiss Cats, and you said it could be allllll mines. I’s luvs it. And it’s soooooo cool; mines stocking came all da way from Switzerland.

Do you even know where Switzerland is Raena?

 Dezi and Raena laying on the Liberty cat tee

          (Raena shuffles her paws) Well, no, sissy. But I’s do know it’s really far away. Awnty Claire sent it speedy ship or else it never woulda got here befur Christmas. Oh, and you know what else I’s luvs sissy? We got a new ‘lectric blanky. And mommy said we didn’t have to wait fur Christmas to start usin’ it. Fank da cats, cuz it’s been really cold ‘round here. Y, Just this meownin’ it was 7 degrees F. But we were toasty warm all cuddled up together under da new ‘lectric blanky.

Yep Raena, we sure are blest. We furgot to ask ‘bout usin’ names, so we’ll just say a meowsy big Fank you to our ‘lectric blanky Angel. (Dezi purrs loudly and then peers at Raena) Don’t you have somethin’ you wanna say Raena?

          (Raena thinks a minute) Ummmm, well…Oh yeah, I’s do sissy. Fanky Fank ya’ dear Angel furiend. We luvs our new ‘lectric blanky. Mommy was so excited she furgot to take fotos. Now da camera batteries are dead and we gotta wait fur ’em to charge so we can take fotos. But you can trust me when I’s tell ya’, we are luvvin’ da snuggly warmth it emanates. Ya’ know sissy, we have da bestest furiends in da universe.

 Dezi lays on the Liberty cat tree

Yes Raena, we do. You know, mommy talked ‘bout how we made all these furiends yesfurday when she wrote da posty. We better wrap it up fur now. Mommy wants another cup of coffee and we need to finish eatin’ brekky. And there’s some gifts under da tree dat need investigatin’ befur Christmas. We hope ya’ll are stayin’ warm. Me also wants to fank all of you who are takin’ care of ferals in your area. Just a few more dreams and Christmas day will be here.

 

 

Are you ready fur Christmas?

Do you use electric blankets?

Do you have (put up) a Christmas stocking (for your furries)?

 

 

Till da next time…………………………………………Be Blest!!!
