Chatting Cats: There’s No Stress Here

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle, live from the chaotic Three Belles Ranch. (The skies rumble and groan and cause the floors and windows to vibrate.) Hey sissy, wait up. Whare are you goin’, It’s just a little winter storm. Mommy says anytime the weather has such drastic extremes from highs to lows or lows to highs, a storm is sure to follow. Guess you were right, those purretty spring days are gone. 

 

Raena lays on floor

 

 

 

          Yeah Raena, me doesn’t like the storms outside, but storm mommy’s  on the loose inside. Me’s not sure which is worse. MOL  

 

Ain’t that the truth sissy. I’s like break times bestest, when mommy sits down and gives us extra luvvins. Ya’ know, we read that February is Nat’l. Responsible Pet Owner month. That got us to thinkin’ ‘bout what that really means. Ya’ know, we all know respawnsible pet owners purrmote spay/neuter, and the over all health of their kitties and woofies. It means to feed us appropriate foods and keep us safe. But what ‘bout our emotional health; ‘specially durin’ stressful times like storms or packin’ up to move?  

 

          It doesn’t even have to be somethin’ that big Raena. You know us kitties aren’t always big fans of change. Just rearrangin’ the furniture is enuff to really stress us out. Mommy says that’s one of the reasons she rearranges what she can offen. She says desensitizin’ us is one way to help keep our stress levels down when somethin’ big happens.

Really sissy? That’s why she does that? I’s just thought she was bored. MOL 

 

          That’s purrobably true too Raena. Mommy does say that after a while of lookin’ at the same old same old, the walls start closin’ in. Me’s never seen the walls move, but ifin mommy says so, they must. 

 

I’s didn’t know our walls moved sissy. I’s saw somethin’ like that on the teevee the other day; it was scary. I’s glad mommy moves things ‘round so we don’t get squooshed. (Raena cleans her toe beans) Flat cats would take on a whole new meanin’. MOL 

 

Raena bathes, toe beans

 

 

 

 

          Funny Raena, you’re a real comedi-cat. 

  

Fanky fanks sissy. Do ya’ think I’s could get a gig as a stand up comedi-cat? (Dezi rolls her eyes) Anyways…We’ve written several Service Cat postys on movin’ and remodelin’ with kitties and settin’ up a Decompression Room to keep stress levels down. But, we don’t really have the room fur that, and we really need to be with mommy. Ya’ know, just in case she needs us. 

 

          And just cuz we don’t wanna be away from her Raena. We’re far less stressed when we can be with mommy than when we’re sepurrated from her. ‘Course a good roll on a pawsum nip toy never hurts either.

 

Dezi rolls around on catnip toys

 

 

 

That’s true too sissy. So, mommy takin’ sit down breaks to give us that extra luvvins is also how we all relieve the stress. Which of course, helps our emotional health. We’re cuddle cats, lap cats, snuggle buddies, whatever ya’ call kitties who be all up in the humans business all the time. But, even ifin your kitty is totally the opposite, he/she still needs ya’ to take care of his/her emotional health. 

  

          Maybe even more so Raena, after all the opposite of us would be a kitty who lives with a lot of stress and fear in their lives already.  

 

You’re right sissy, I’s didn’t even think ‘bout that. Fur those kitties, speakin’ calmly and tellin’ ‘em what’s goin’ on and reassurin’ ’em that they’re still your nummer one is the bestest way to help them; besides a Decompression Room. 

 

          Even with it Raena. Mommy believes that on some level we totally unnerstand, and that tellin’ us what’s goin’ on each step of the way helps keep us calm.   

 

Raena gets lap lovingI’s luvs you mommy.

 

 

 

‘Course we unnerstand her sissy. Hmmmmpht We are cats after all. Looks like mommy’s thru with her break, so let’s go see ifin we can help. Sooner or later she’s gonna have to open the door to the furbidden room (closet). I’s gotta hone mine’s sneaky skills to get in there and explore.

Chatting Cats: You Won, Just Click Here

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. Hold on just a minute, I’s checkin’ our emails. I’s thought I’s saw somethin’ here a minute ago…now where did that email go?. (Raena searches the email subject lines and finally sees one that says “you’ve won”)  Here it is mommy, open that one. Read it to me mommy, read it now. (Mommy A slowly and sarcastically reads the email to Raena.)  WooHoo!!! Our troubles are over!!! We’re rich sissy!!! We’re rich mommy!!! We can have as many scratchers and cat trees as we want now. (Raena zooms thru the house and up the cat tree and back down. Raena zooms thru the house and knocks a few knick knacks from their spots onto the floor. She finally runs back to the living room and jumps up on the boxes behind the chair) We’ve won the New Zealand lotto!!! Mommy, how many dollars is a million pounds? What are we gonna buy furst? I’s think we should buy a real Three Belles Ranch and make lots of cat houses so we can save all the kitties who need a home. Sissy, what do want to buy furst?  

 

Raena stands on boxes in hallway looking back

 

 

 

          Uh Raena…we don’t play the lotto. We fur sure don’t play the New Zealand lotto. That’s a scam.  

 

A scam? No sissy, they didn’t ask fur anythin’. They just need us to click this link. Hurry mommy, click it fast. We don’t want ‘em givin’ our money away to somepawdy else. 

 

Raena stands on boxes in hallway - selfie

 

 

 

          RaenaBelle, you know mommy ain’t gonna click that link. There’s a rule, ifin it sounds to good to be true, then it purrobably is. And trust me, us winnin’ a lottery we don’t even play is way too good to be true.  

 

But sissy…We got an email?. Surely they wouldn’t lie to us?.  

 

          Well Raena, that’s one of the hard lessons you have to learn ‘bout life.. Just cuz you don’t lie, doesn’t mean everypawdy else on the planet tells the truth. There are scammers ‘round every corner. That’s why we’re so fankful fur all our furiends. They’re the bright light amidst all the crazy.   

 

Dezi lays atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

So, we’re not gettin’ a million pounds? We can’t really buy a ranch or a bunch of scratchers?  

 

          No Raena, we’re not gettin’ a million pounds. We’re not buyin’ a ranch and we’re not buyin’ a house full of scratchers. Altho’ we kind’a already have a house full of scratchers. 

 

Dezi lays on cat scratcher

 

 

 

Yeah, but most of those are worn out; or you hurled on ‘em.  

 

          Not all of ‘em Raena. Besides, we still have our sisal scratchers. They’re still in great shape. And mommy got us the new scratcher lounger from the green papers we got fur Christmas. 

 

Oooooh Sissy, meowin’ of gifts, did you see what came in the mail yesfurday? We got not one, but two new Cat Dancers. Mommy found a 2 pack at Wally world. Ya’ know our Jewish furiends from the J-Cats didn’t even know what it was. 

 

Raena plays with the Cat DancerI’s luvved the cat dancer when I’s furst came here.

 

 

 

          Yeah Raena, me ‘members me’s furst Cat Dancer. They used to be more ‘spensive and mommy grumbled ‘bout payin’ so much fur a few pieces of rolled up papers on the end of a wire. But once she saw how much fun it was fur me, she said it was priceless. ‘Course, that didn’t stop her lookin’ fur a bargain when it came to buyin’ a new one. Me just can’t wait to play with it. 

 

Dezi whacks the Cat Dancer from the liberty Cat tree

 

 

 

Me too sissy.  

 

          Well, don’t break this one. Me doesn’t even know how you could break a metal wire.   

 

Hmmmmpht  I’s don’t recall that sissy. And, ifin I’s don’t recall it, it didn’t happen.  

 

Raena sits on scratcher in front of the tv

 

 

 

          Let me guess, you heard that on teevee? Cuz you know, ifin the evidence shows you’re guilty then you’re guilty whether you ‘member it or not. 

   

Evidence? There ain’t no evidence sissy. One day we woke up and it was just broken. You could’a broke it yourself and now you’re tryin’ to blame it on me.

 

          Sure Raena. Me had it fur a whole year befur you came and two days after your arrival it magically breaks? Just like all our electronic toys. You’re just hard on toys, that’s all. 

 

Raena walks on boxes in hallway Gotta go…

 

 

 

Well at least I’s don’t hurl on everythin’ sissy. That’s so gross. Anyways, ifin we’re not gettin’ that lotto money, then all mine’s plans fur the day are shot. I’s so wanted to go shoppin’. Hmmmpht  I’s guess we better finish our brekky.  

 

Do you play the lotto?

Tell All Tuesday: Babbling And Planning

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s comin’ to ya’ live from the Three Belles Ranch. You are never gonna believe what mommy did last night. 

 

Raena lays in lap selfie

 

 

 

          RaenaBelle!!! You don’t blab everythin’ the minute it happens. 

 

But sissy, it’s tell all Tuesday. I’s thought that meant we told everythin’.

 

          Kittens Raena, that mostly applies to product reviews, not everythin’ ya’ know. Altho’ ifin ya’ told all you know, it couldn’t be more than one post.

 

Dezi lays in chair

 

 

 

Are you suggestin’ I’s don’t know very much sissy? Cuz mommy says I’s a very smart kitty girl.  

 

          Of course mommy would say that Raena, she’s mommy. That’s what mommy’s do.

 

So, you’re sayin’ mommy lied?. Did she lie when she said you were a smart kitty girl, too? Cuz you know how mommy feels ‘bout lyin’. 

 

Raena bathes, toe beansCheck out mine’s toe beans.

 

 

 

          Me didn’t call anypawdy a liar Raena, and fur sure not mommy. Me just meant that you’re too young to know too much.

 

Welllllllll, You just might be surpurrised at what I’s know sissy. I’s know purrlenty.  Hmmmpht  

 

          Whatever. Ifin you know so much why are you constantly tryin’ to cover your meals with our toys? You know they don’t belong in our plate. 

 

Dezi gets lap loving laying in mommy A's lap

 

 

 

It’s called subliminal communication sissy. Our furiends Travis and Teddy get bacon every week, and I’s want mommy to give us some. So, I’s hopin’ mommy’ll get the message ifin she has to keep pullin’ our bacon toy outta mine’s plate. Some day that light bulb thingy’s gonna go off and she’ll start servin’ us bacon. It’s gotta be good fur us; mommy says they used to call it the other white meat. 

 

          Don’t tell me, you learned ‘bout this subliminal stuffs on the tee-vee, right? 

 

Hmmmmm I’s don’t really ‘member sissy, but it sounded like a good plan. 

 

Raena stands on cat tree

 

 

 

          You and your plans, Raena. Me doesn’t think this one’s gonna work. After all, it’s not like mommy eats bacon either. How’s she gonna give us soemthin’ we don’t even have? Travis and Teddy’s pawrents eat bacon on the regular so that’s why they get it. Anyways, me seems to ‘member you didn’t even eat the last bacon mommy gave you. 

 

Dezi gets lap loving in mommy A's lap

 

 

 

That wasn’t fair. I’s had just got out of surgery and wasn’t totally awake. Who wants to eat while they’re sleepy drunk? Technically, that means mommy owes me a piece of bacon sissy. 

 

          Sure Raena, whatever you meow. In the meantime, we need to finish our brekky. Get our toys outta your plate and let’s eat.

Okay sissy, but I’s wanna play later. (Raena gobbles down her breakfast while thinking up ways to ambush Dezi, while Dezi eats and thinks up ways to avoid playtime with Raena.
