Chatting Cats: They Better Not Get Any Funny Ideas

Hey, Is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. And it’s Summer time!!! Kittens is it hot here. There was a few rain showers yesfurday that mommy said brought some cooler winds, but she said ultimately those showers were gonna make it hotter than ever cuz of somethin’ called humidity. I’s don’t know much ‘bout humidity but mommy thinks it makes mine’s eyes gunk up more than normal. 

 

Dezi lays on liberty tree and Raena on the small perch looking at each other in front of the door.

 

 

 

          Yep Raena, so much so that me heard mommy on the fone with Dr. C. ‘Pawrently she’s plannin’ on takin’ you in fur some tests or somethin’. Me heard her tell him that she didn’t know what ya’ll needed to do but somethin’ had to be done and she wasn’t takin’ we don’t know fur an answer. Me does know that it really bothers mommy when you look up at her and can’t open your eyes fur all the gunk. You might not can see it, but me sees her cryin’. And those ain’t the happy tears.

I’s don’t like it when mommy cries the sad tears sissy, and I’s fur sure don’t like to be the reason. I’s don’t know why mine’s eyes gunk so much but I’s wish they’d stop. Ya’ know, some days they seem fine and others, I’s just can’t see nuffin’. I’s kind’a hope the doctor can figger out why that is. ‘Course, I’s don’t plan on makin’ it easy fur ‘em. After all, it is the V-E-T. MOL  I’s’ll meow ya’ another thing too, they bestest not be gettin’ any ideas ‘bout stickin’ no thermometer anywhere near mine’s nether regions. Maybe I’s could manage to cover mine’s bloomers in some of that smelly clay litter we tried out last month. Once that stuffs dries they’d need a sledge hammer to get anywhere near me. MOL

          RaenaBelle!!! (Dezi and Raena laugh while thinking about the VET staff trying to clean off dried clay from their rabbity fine bloomer furs.) Me doesn’t think they’ll be takin’ your tempurrture. That is at the other end of the purroblem after all. Me’s purretty sure that has nuffin’ to do with your eyes. But, by all means, give ‘em what fur ifin ya’ see ‘em appurrchin’ with one of those thermometers. Ya’ might wanna watch out fur claw clippers too. Even tho’ mommy thinks the VET charges too much she might have ‘em clip your claws while you’re there.

 

Raena bathes while laying on the floor with her tongue out

 

 

 

No Way sissy. Why would she ever do that? She clips mine’s claws purrlenty, I’s fur sure don’t need some silly tech who doesn’t know me clippin’ ‘em. 

 

Dezi lays on the cat scratcher while getting ready for the Gotch'a game

 

 

 

          That’s the truth Raena. Mommy had ‘em clip me’s claws once and that didn’t work out very well fur ‘em. She even had ‘em put those soft paws on me once…well, Dr. C tried. Me let him know in no uncertain terms that wasn’t happenin’. He gave up after the furst one. Mommy siad he charged a furtune fur his tryin’ and she came home and put the rest on me in a matter of minutes. They didn’t work out so good tho’ and so we definitely don’t recommend ‘em. We purrfur that peeps purrvide their kitties with purrlenty of scratchin’ options ‘stead. 

 

 

I’s don’t think I’s would like those soft paws either sissy. Sorry they were bad fur ya’, but I’s pawfully glad mommy doesn’t recommend ‘em anymore. So, since you’re the one with all the infurmation, just when am I’s s’posed to go see the doctor? Maybe I’s can eat a spider and be too sick to go. 

 

          Do you know how stupid that sounds Raena? Too sick to go to the doctor? 

 

Raena scratches on the catit zebra scratcher

 

 

 

That’s not nice sissy. You know how mommy hates that word. Just cuz of that I’s might decide not to share mine’s special treat with you.

 

          What special treat , Raena? We don’t have any treats, mommy said so. We haven’t gotten treats since your birthday.

 

Raena gets loving while laying in mommy's lap

Don’t furget the pawrty you purromissed mommy.

 

 

 

That may be true sissy, but ‘member how mommy said ifin we had a small birthday pawrty fur me we’d really whoop it up fur mine’s gotchaday? It just so happens, mine’s Gotchday is this Furiday. Yep, I’s been here with you and mommy fur 2 whole years now. And you purromissed to make mine’s pawrty a pawrty to ‘member. So, wha’ch’a got planned? And it better be good.

 

          Oh, Well, Me’s furgot. Ya’ know Furidays are our Service Cat postys.

 

Then you better get to thinkin’ sissy, cuz I’s gonna be x’pectin’ somethin’ outta this world. ‘Specially ifin I’s have to go to the V-E-T this week. 

 

Dezi lays in cat bed with a snarky look

 

 

 

          Well, guess me better go have a nap and see what comes to me.

 

I’s gonna go ask mommy fur somethin’ special to celebrate with. (Raena looks over at mommy A trying to drink a cup of coffee after having cleaned up a few messes she and Dezi had made before breakfast) Maybe I’s’ll just wait till she finishes her coffee.

Chatting Cats: A Little of This & A Little of That

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s never been so tired of a season in all mine’s 2 years. I’s so ready fur this Spring to show up. I’s beginnin’ to think she’s just a myth or somethin’. Have any of you seen her? 

 

 Dezi lays on scratcher with mouth open

 

 

 

          RaenaBelle, what in the world are you meowin’ ‘bout now? In all your 2 years huh? Do you even ‘member Spring from last year? 

 

 Raena stands atop the scratcher in front of the tv

 

 

 

Well, not ‘zactly sissy, but I’s heard she brings warmer weather. You know, strollin’ weather. Not too hot, not too cold but just right. 

 

          Yeah, ‘bout that just right Raena, we live in the South where there’s really no such thing as just right. We may only see a couple of days of Spring befur Summer arrives with all her heat and humidity. (Dezi hears something besides the rain on the walk and runs to the door to look out. She sees the manager coming up the walk with a huge umbrella and hisses and runs for cover. Raena runs after her while looking back towards the door.

 

 Raena steps from tv stand to chair

 

 

 

Wait fur me sissy. Where are we goin’? (Mommy A goes to the door to be given a notice for a 2nd inspection of the month on next Monday. Raena turns around and crawls up into mommy A’s lap and begins a grooming session.) hmmmpht  Another inspection mommy? I’s just don’t unnerstand why these peeps can’t just leave us alone. Who else in the world has intruders in their house every month, sometimes more than once?!! Guess you’ll have to do some cleanin’ mommy. 

 

 Dezi stands on tip of stroller-selfie

 

 

 

          (Dezi returns to the living room to finish her breakfast. Raena jumps down and eats beside her) Me’s never unnerstood all these inspections either Raena. ‘Course, mommy did learn that they can’t legally intrude more than once a month, so we’ll have to see what happens next week. Anyways, how ‘bout a little birthday meow. Since we were outta town on your birthday and it rained so you didn’t get to do anythin’ special, mommy and me decided we’d have a little celebration fur ya’ this Sunday. It would’a been me’s sis Lexi’s birthday. Since she went to heaven, me’s sure she wouldn’t mind us celebratin’ your life on her special day. We’ll just have a small pawrty and then really throw a bash fur your Gotchaday in June. 

 

That sounds pawsum sissy. I’s sure wish I’s could’a met your sis Lexi. She sounds really amazin’. 

 

Dezi sits pretty in front of fireplace

 

 

 

          She was Raena. Mommy says God decided He needed her more than we did and took her back to heaven. Least she’s not sick or in pain anymore. Me really misses her sometimes, but me’s fankful fur the time me did have with her. So, we’ll plan a small pawrty fur Sunday. All of our furiends are invited and mommy says she’ll give us extra treats and playtime.

This is gonna be fun, sissy. I’s can’t hardly wait. Maybe even Spring will show up. Let’s finish brekky. All this rain makes me wanna take a nap.

Chatting Cats: We’ve Got A New Ride

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We’ve got a cool new ride!!! 

 

 Gen7 Jogger Pet stroller assembled

 

 

 

          Raena, what are you doin’? You know we try to save our blessings fur our Blest Sunday postys. 

 

 Raena checks out the new Gen7 Jogger stroller

 

 

 

I’s too x’cited, sissy. You can save what you wanna meow ‘bout it till Sunday ifin ya’ want. But, I’s meowin’ ‘bout it today. I’s been ridin’ in that cramped old carrier fur too long. We’ve had a few sunny days that were great fur strollin’, but here we sat hangin’ in the house ‘stead of out enjoyin’ the furesh air and huntin’ fur bunnies. 

 

Dezi checks out stroller while RAena stands on side looking up

 

 

 

          And whose fault is that?

 

 Raena in stroller

 

 

 

It’s not all mine’s fault sissy. Besides, it’s not like it was in purristine condition when I’s was born. Mommy said you and your sis Lexi had already broken the board that went across the bottom cuz ya’ll were too heavy fur it. And like ya’ll, I’s never would’a broke the stroller on purrpuss; I’s luvs goin’ fur strolls with mommy too much. 

 

 Dezi looking out from stroller

 

 

 

          Well at least we could still use it when sis Lexi and me snapped the bottom board. When you broke it, there was no more strollin’ fur any kitty. Me sure did miss it. When me was little and used to go with mommy, me always had to ride in that cramped carrier. You got lucky and came here long after we were already enjoyin’ the fureedom the stroller gives us. So the way me sees it, is that you were just payin’ your dues like all the Service kitties befur you. Anyways, me’s glad we got a new ride too. And this one shouldn’t break. Me heard mommy say it could hold up to 75 pounds. That means both of us can ride at the same time.

 

 Raena jumps into stroller from floor

Uh, Mommy?! It’s really big, but I’s can still jump in on mine’s own.

 

 

 

And we could even gain a few pounds. MOL That Gen7 Pets makes a mighty fine stroller. It’s so comfy. And did you see that our tires are bigger than the ones on mommy’s wheelchair? I’s bet there ain’t nowhere we can’t go now. Ya’ know, Oklahoma has a lot of really bad roads and sidewalks. And we’ve got lots of dirt and holes too. That kind’a terrain can be hard on wheels and tires. Mommy says the wheels on our new stroller were meant fur that stuff. It is called a jogger after all.

          Yeah Raena, and me can’t wait to go fur our furst stroll. We were s’posed to go yesfurday, but it took mommy a little longer to put it together than she x’spected; and we got a late surpurrise notice ‘bout a inspection fur today. That meant mommy had to try to do a little cleanin’ last night. Needless to say, she didn’t get much done, we should’a went fur that stroll instead.

 

 Raena looks down over the edge of the new stroller

That sure is a long way down.

 

 

 

I’s agree, sissy. Ya’ know, a lot of our furiends are gettin’ strollers of their own. Wouldn’t it be cool ifin we could all for fur a stroll together? We get asked a lot ‘bout whether or not we would recommend peeps gettin’ their kitties a stroller. And we totally think they’re a great way fur kitty to spend some time in the great outdoors while still bein’ safe. And, takin’ kitty fur a stroll even lets our peeps get a little exercise. We do recommend doin’ your homework befur buyin’ one tho’. Ya’ wanna make sure it’ll hold kitty and be sturdy enuff fur kitty to feel safe. We much purrfur the 3 wheeled strollers to those rickety 4 wheelers. Not only do they look sleeker, they maneuver better. As fur whether or not to get one with a zipper closure or velcro, we can only meow ‘bout what we know. We’ve only had zipper ones, and we really do recommend the Gen7 strollers. Our old stroller had gaps t’ween where the zipper ended and met the suppurrt bars. And anypawdy who knows kitties knows, ifin kitty can fit their head thru a space, they’ll squeeze their whole body thru somehow.

 

Dezi sniffs new Gen7 Jogger stroller

 

 

 

          That’s so true Raena. More than once we’ve poked our head and front paws out the gaps on that stroller. Me has a feelin’ that’s not gonna be pawssible anymore. Me didn’t see any gaps in our new stroller. But just in case, it’s always good to tether kitty into the stroller with the purrvided D rings. Even the calmest of kitties can get spooked. Strollin’ should be fun. We also recommend keepin’ the stroller closed, least till kitty gets comfy enuff not to try to jump out. As fur the assembly required, ifin mommy can do it, anypawdy can. Usually it’s just a matter of attachin’ the wheels. You’ve just got to make sure everythin’ gets locked into place. ya’ don’t want a wheel fallin’ off on your furst stroll. And altho’ we luv that our stroller matches our eyes, color choice shouldn’t dictate the stroller you choose. Quality strollers usually only come in a few purrimary colors, like red, blue and black. That means there’s no purrple strollers fur us. You can get creative and trick yours out any way ya’ want.

Are we gonna do that with ours sissy? I’s not sure what that means ‘zactly, but I’s like the sound of it.

 

 Dezi checks out the new Gen7 Jogger stroller gift from Cindy

 

 

 

          Mommy says we can Raena. Just ‘member, it’s gotta be tasteful. We are Southern Belles after all.

 

Tasteful huh? Are we gonna put treats all over it? 

 

          (Dezi shakes her head.) We’ll meow ‘bout it later Raena. Let’s just say a meowsy big Fank you to awnty Cindy and angel Maggie Meme fur our new ride and get ready to go fur a stroll.

 

 Animated thank you rose

 

 

 

I’s with ya’ sissy. Can we meow ‘bout what to call it too?

 

This is not a sponsored post. We received our new Gen7 Jogger from an amazing awnty and just thought we’d tell ya’ more ‘bout how to pick the right stroller fur your pets.
