Chatting Cats: Ain’t No Grumps Here

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s not likin’ the way things are goin’ ‘round here. I’s mean, it’s like mommy done furgot all ‘bout our nightly cuddle time, and I’s can’t ‘member the last time I’s had a treat. What’s up with that? I’s know I’s not that in to treats and all, but still…it’d be nice to be offured a couple every now and then. And Kittens!!!! Mine’s eye is really botherin’ me. Everytime I’s look up it’s gone and got all gooey again. And then mommy tries to chase me down to put medicine in ‘em. Seems all this humidity makes ‘em act up.  Hmmmpht

          RaenaBelle!!! You sure don’t sound like yourself. Grumpy cat’s got nuffin’ on you. What’s got you in such a tizzy? 

 

Raena sits pretty on the cat tree

 

 

 

Haven’t you’s been payin’ attention sissy? Do I’s have to repeat mine’s self?

 

          No Raena, you don’t need to repeat all that nonsense. And you know that’s ‘zactly what it is, nonsense. You know mommy luvs you and luvs cuddle time. She wouldn’t miss it ifin she could help it. Besides, you’ve been gettin’ lots of extra lap luvvin’ time lately, so you’ve got nuffin’ to complain ‘bout. And, me heard you gettin’ treats just the other day. 

 

You did? Where were you sissy?

          Uh…Me was unner the bed lookin’ fur intruders. Yep, that’s what me was doin’, alright. With all these storms ya’ just never know what might crawl thru the walls. And, as the oldest, it’s me’s job to purrtect me’s family. Me’s gotta tell ya’, me liked it much better when me was the baby and all this respawnsibility was sis Lexi’s. Me doesn’t now how she did it all. She really was the Service Cat Extraordinaire. 

 

Lexi looks up at mommy while sitting in her lap on 3/3/2016

Lexi sure luvved mommy and spendin’ time in her lap.

 

 

 

Aaaaaw sissy, I’s sure she had days when she wished she was still the baby too. After all, I’s ‘member you tellin’ me that she was the baby fur the furst 6 years of her life. And I’s bet that as extraordinary as she was, you’re just as special. I’s think you’re a great big sisfur. (Raena whispers) Least most of the time. (Raena looks up)  Anyways, did you know that cuz we missed postin’ on Furiday, that we also missed the blooper blog hop? You know the foto fails with the Cuddlywumps.  And we missed Feline Furiday with Comedy Plus.

 

          Yeah Raena me heard. It’s a shame too, cuz goodness knows we’ve got tons of failed fotos. 

 

Raena lays in cat house on cat tree

Where’s mine’s face mommy? What kind’a foto is this? Foto Fail, big time.

 

 

 

Yeah sissy, mommy keeps tryin’, but sometimes she just can’t keep up. Did you see what she shot the other day? Y, I’s never!!! I’s pawed the delete button on that one real fast.

 

          Are you meowin’ ‘bout that foto of your hiney, Raena? Cuz Kittens, it sure looked big. Your hiney me means. MOL 

 

That’s not very nice sissy. And, mine’s hiney isn’t that big. Ifin you’s don’t be nice, I’s gonna tell mommy. 

 

Dezi's back side- blooper

Does anypawdy here think mommy got confused ’bout where

our faces might be?

 

 

 

          Kittens Raena, you’re so touchy. You know me didn’t mean naythin’ by it. Sometimes things just look bigger in fotos. Why do you think mommy tries to avoid bein’ in front of a camera? She’s not very comfurtable with that few extra pounds she put on a few years back. Anyways, me’s sorry. Your hiney;s so fluffy it’s kind’a hard to tell what size it really is. 

 

Raena lays on scratcher

 

 

 

Is that a ‘pawlogy sissy? Cuz that doesn’t sound like a ‘pawlogy. But I’s’ll accept it. I’s don’t wanna fight today. We’re too late to enter the foto fails blog hop, but we thought we’d post one anyways. Everypawdy needs a good laff to start and end their day. Looks like mommy’s finished with her coffee and needs us to help her take a shower. C’mon sissy, let’s go help. 

 

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

Chatting Cats: Bearing The Heat

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. It furinally cooled off a bit yesfurday. It was only 99°F. We won’t meow ‘bout the feels like cuz it was really humid which means it feels hotter than it is. Fanky fankfully, we have air conditionin’ to help keep things comfutable and cool. Not to mention the sink in the bathroom. I’s sometimes like to curl up there and take a nice little cat nap. Do any of you do that? Ya’ know, with the hots bein’ what they are I’s guessin’ lots of peeps and cats would much purr-fur to lay ‘round not doin’ much.

 

Dezi lays on scratcher and looks back at Raena

 

 

 

          Yep Raena, who knew you could be still that long. Me actually took a nice long nap the other day and you didn’t bug me once. Me actually worried a little that you might be sick or somethin’. 

 

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaw Really sissy? You worried ‘bout me? 

 

          Yeah, don’t let it go to your head Raena. Me wasn’t worried enuff to go look fur ya’ or anythin’. Hey, did you see that mommy found our hexbug? 

 

Raena hangs over the edge of the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

Yep sissy, but it’s too hot to run ‘round chasin’ it right now. Maybe when it cools off some more. Ya’ know, I’s never would’a thought I’s would see the day when I’s didn’t wanna go out fur a stroll with mommy. But, sure ‘nuff, when mommy asked me ifin I’s wanted to go to the mailbox with her yesfurday, I’s meowed no. Why would I’s wanna leave the comfurt of the a/c to get all glowy and glistenin’?.

 

          You mean sweaty Raena? Cats don’t sweat. 

 

I’s know sissy. Mommy says us Southern Belles glow.

 

Dezi sleeps on cat scratcher

 

 

 

          Well Raena, Southern Belles may glow, but really, we cats don’t sweat or glow. That’s why we pant when we get hot. Not that it does any good, but we do it any ways. 

 

Raena lays atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

I’s really worry ‘bout all those kitties who live outside sissy. Ya’ know, even when we do get out in the heat, mommy’s pushin’ us ‘round in the stroller. Can you ‘magine how hot the ground must be? And there are lots of kitties out there havin’ to walk ‘round on it and burn their poor pawsies. They can’t stretch out unner the a/c or even curl up in a bathroom sink. It’s just not fair. I’s don’t unnerstand how some peeps can be so cruel as to turn poor kitties out?.

 

          Raena, me doesn’t think anypawdy truly unnerstands those kinds of peeps. But, that’s why it’s so ‘purrtant fur the kind humans to do what they can fur all those kitties that don’t have cushy homes like we do. Ya’ know like purrvidin’ shelter so they can get outta the sun and the heat. And, makin’ sure they have access to furesh cool water. Y, Mommy used to put ice cubes in water bowls fur the stray kitties when we had ‘em. When takin’ care of stray kitties and feral colonies, purrtectin’ ‘em from the heat is just as ‘purrtant as purrtectin’ ‘em from the cold.

 

It sure is sissy. I’s even heard mommy sayin’ ya’ll were gonna be offurn’ up Tips on how to Beat the Summer Heat this Furiday. 

 

Dezi lays sleeping on cat scratcher

 

 

 

          Me heard her say that too Raena. Me hopes she can keep her head outta the freezer long enuff to write our posty and help us visit our furiends. T’ween the heat and mommy’s own purrsonal summers’, she’s been spendin’ a lot of time hangin’ in front of it.

 

Maybe the freezer acts like the bathroom sink fur mommy. She’s just too big to crawl up in there and lay down.

 

          Now that would be funny Raena. Me can see it now.

Well sissy, what do ya’ say we go take a nap. Maybe by the time we wake up, it’ll be cool enuff fur some zoomies?.

Blest Sunday: Blessings Floor To Ceiling And Beyond

Dezi:  MeOW  HiSsssssssss RaenaBelle!!! Quit jumpin’ on me!!!

          Raena:  I’s didn’t jump on you sissy, I’s jumped over you. I’s was in a hurry to get to the purrch. I’s thought I’s saw somethin’ outside. 

 

Dezi sit on cat tree and Raena sits on small perch while looking out the door

 

 

 

Dezi: Ya’ still need to stop. How many times has mommy told you to slow down Raena? Besides, it’s Blest Sunday and was time fur brekky. What ifin mommy had a been tryin’ to bring us our plates at that very minute? Y, All our food would’a ended up on the floor. We’re not heathens, we don’t eat off the floor. 

 

Dezi and Raena eating

 

 

 

          Meow fur yourself sissy, sometimes I’s find all kinds of yummy things on the floor. Y, Just the other day mommy dropped a piece of cheese in the kitchen when she was makin’ her smashed tater with cheese. Ifin I’s hadn’t grabbed it up when I’s did, she would’a throwed it in the trash. What a waste that would’a been. I’s luvs me some cheese. Ya’ know our china platters are fine, but I’s not gonna miss an oppurr-tunity to eat me somethin’ tasty just cuz it’s not served with silver and gold trimmins. See, sometimes you can find Blessings on the floor. Just be careful it’s food and not a bug. 

 

(Dezi shakes her head) Oh Raena, sometimes me just doesn’t know what to do with you. 

 

          Oh sissy, just luvs me. You know you were just like me once. Mommy says so. She says when you were young you couldn’t wait fur her to open the door in the meownin’ and put the purrch in front of it. She says you used to sit on it fur hours and chirp and chortle at anythin’ that came by. 

 

Dezi sits on small perch looking outside

 

 

 

 

Yeah Raena, me did. It seems so long ago now. It also seems like there was more to see back then. We used to have stray kitties and all kinds of wildlife play on our porch. It’s gotten so hot, ain’t nuffin’ outside doin’ much of anythin’. Y, just last night it was still 104°F at 9:30 p.m.. That’s just too hot.

 

          Yep sissy, it is. You’d think the old bobcat and the coon family would be knockin’ on our door askin’ fur food. It’s gotta be too hot to hunt.

 

Me’s been wonderin’ where they were Raena. We haven’t seen either of ‘em all season. Maybe when it starts coolin’ off in a couple of months they’ll show up. Fankfully, we furinally got a new lease signed. Our rent went up $30.00, so mommy may have to put her dentures on hold fur a bit. It takes quite a bit of gas to get there every week and she’s been drivin’ on fumes the last couple times. With more money we don’t have goin’ to rent and nowhere to take green papers from, that drive is purretty much the only thing left to cut.

 

Raena lays on scratching pad

 

 

 

          Well sissy, I’s guess that’ll give her more time to try to fix the mess the manager made and figger out what they can and can’t do befur it all starts again. Ya’ know the manager told mommy that they’re gonna be “rehabing” these ‘pawrtments soon and that they’re gonna wanna do a move out and then move us back in and start all this again in just a few months. Mommy told ‘em they couldn’t do that cuz she has a years lease, and utilities that be in her name that she has to pay each month. While she might not have had to put down a depawsit, those companies charge to turn it on and move it and stuffs. Not to mention the stress mommy’s just went thru. We fur sure can’t be doin’ this again that soon. We all need time to recupurrate.  

 

Yeah Raena, the way they treat us just ain’t right. It’s not like we’re poor and need help by choice. And mommy certainly ain’t disabled by choice. Ifin mommy could change our situation, she would in a heartbeat. Our mommy ain’t afraid of work. Y, Befur her accident, she worked 2 and 3 jobs at a time to make sure she could affurd everythin’ she needed and wanted. 

 

          I’s heard sissy. She says she was young and dumb back then and didn’t save, so that’s why we’re in the shape we’re in now. Altho’ I’s know mommy wishes she could do more and could give us more, and had more money, I’s glad things happened the way they did. Y, ifin they hadn’t who knows where you and me would be? We might not have ever been saved?. I’s don’t even wanna think ‘bout what it would have been like ifin mommy hadn’t showed up and whisked me away to this Blest life. 

 

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

 

 

 

Me neither, Raena, me neither. We might not be rich by the standards the world uses, but when it comes to luv, we’re bazillionaires. 

 

          You got that right sissy. We’ve got the bestest mommy ever, altho’ we know all of you think you’ve got the bestest pawrent, and that’s okay. And meowin’ of all of ya’, we can’t ‘magine a life without you.

 

Dezi's selfie as an oil painting

We wouldn’t want to Raena. We have the bestest furiends in the whole universe. God smiled on us the day we met you, our dear furiends, and we ask Him each and every day to keep and Bless you and your families. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. Blessings are all ‘round us, we just have to stop and see ‘em.

          So true sissy, so true. Let’s link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and go get us some mommy luvvin’. But furst, I’s wanna meow Fanky fank You God, fur all our blessings. And fanky fank all of you fur bein’ pawrt of our Blessings each day.

 

Me seconds that Raena. C’mon, me will race ya’ to mommy’s lap.

 

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