Chatting Cats: Getting Old’s No Fun At All

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. It’s gonna be one of those days. Mommy’s not yet finished her furst cup of coffee and she’s already yellin’ at her new smarty pants fone. I’s not sure who Okay Google is, but accordin’ to mommy she’s a bossy idiot.

 

Dezi stretches while looking at Raena laying on the heated cat mat

 

 

 

          RaenaBelle!!! Me thinks you’re usin’ the idiot word too much these days. It’s just not nice. 

 

But sissy, that’s what mommy said. She told her she didn’t wanna go that way to the dentist this time, she wanted to go thru Ardmore. And all that Okay Google could say is “hmmmmm I don’t know how to help you with that.” Mommy’s been screamin’ at her to quit redirectin’ the directions to the quickest route. Ya’ know, mommy wants to take a safer route today, but she needs that silly fone fur directions. (Raena shakes her head)

 

Dezi and Raena together

 

 

 

          Well Raena, ya’ know mommy’s eyes aren’t what they used to be and it’s hard fur her to see the writin’ on the maps. Me knows she was lookin’ at the atlas last night and mumblin’ ‘bout the tiny purrint and gettin’ old. 

 

Well sissy, sounds like we need to learn how to read a map so we can give mommy directions. 

 

          Sure Raena, me will put that right up there with make mommy a cup of coffee. We kitties can’t read the map any more than mommy can. Besides, me heard mommy say that she’d just go to Ardmore and then ask the silly smarty pants fone fur directions.

Sounds like mommy’s outsmarted the smarty pants fone to me, sissy. I’s knew our mommy was smart. Meowin’ of dentists, fanky fankfully, we got our money back from Aspen Dental over the weekend so mommy can pay the new dentist today. I’s so glad we don’t have to deal with those peeps anymore.

 

          Me too Raena. Mommy used to get so stressed befur her ‘pointments that she almost made herself sick. Meowin’ of ‘pointments, did you see the card me got from the V-E-T? They actually wanted me to tell mommy to call them to schedule a ‘pointment fur them to stab and manhandle me. Hmmmpht  Like that’s gonna happen. What self respectin’ kitty in their right mind would willingly tell their human to take them to the V-E-T? Not this one me tells ya’. Nope, no way. 

 

Raena looks over her shoulder while standing on the table at the vet's office

What are you lookin’ at? Don’t you be gettin’ any

ideas ’bout pokin’ me with that.

 

 

 

Well, good luck with that one sissy; I’s think mommy already saw the card. Besides, why would you think you could get outta goin’ when I’s had to go the day befur mine’s Gotchaday?

 

          But Raena, you didn’t get poked and jabbed on your visit. They wanna do all kinds of unmeowable things to me. It’s just not fair, me tells ya’, not fair at all. Every year they think they oughtta jab me with their huge needles.

I’s feelin’ all better mommy, let’s go home.

 

 

 

Every year sissy? Does that mean I’s gonna have to go back too? They already tried to kill me the other day. I’s know they’re plannin’ and plottin’ mine’s demise. The kitties in the waitin’ room when we left told me so. Their names were Thelma and Louise. I’s told ‘em to run fur their lives when their carrier doors opened. I’s told ‘em not to stop fur the bonito flakes we left on the table. I’s sure hope they got out okay. They reminded me of your pawsum sis Lexi. They were big ol black tabby kitty girls…and I’s do mean big.

          Really Raena? Me hopes they got away too. Ya’ know, we oughtta check fur some new hidin’ spots so mommy won’t be able to find us to take us to the ol stabby place. Me saw you watchin’ mommy drag stuffs outta the furbidden room (closet), did she make enuff room fur us to get in and hide? 

 

Raena lays on the bed on jeans

It sure looks like fun in there mommy. Where’d you get all that stuffs?

 

 

 

I’s don’t think so sissy. Who knew mommy had that many clothes?. I’s never seen her wear any of ‘em befur?. 

 

          Yeah Raena, it’s been a while. Those are mommy’s dressy clothes that she only wears fur special occasions. She hasn’t had much cause to wear ‘em in quite some time. Me does ‘member a time when she’d shimmy and shake into somethin’ called panty hose and shapers and then pull out somethin’ really nice from the furbidden room. Since we go to church at home now, mommy says she doesn’t need to wear the hose and shapers anymore. Truth be told, me doesn’t think they’d fit. MOL 

 

Ooooh Sissy, you better not let mommy hear you meow that. I’s think that might hurt her feelings. 

 

Dezi looks at camera while sitting on cat scratcher

 

 

 

 

          Sometimes the truth hurts, Raena. You know mommy says we should always tell the truth, even ifin it’s not necessarily nice.

 

Uh, Mommy also says ifin ya’ can’t say somethin’ nice then don’t say anythin’ at all. I’s purretty sure implyin’ mommy’s fat would fall unner that category. 

 

          Fat? Me didn’t call mommy fat, you did and me’s tellin’. MOL You’re in trouble now. (Dezi runs to mommy laughing all the way

 

Dezi, watches RAena walk off the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

(Raena runs after Dezi meowing) Wait!!! Sissy, I’s didn’t call mommy fat, you did. I’s can run faster than you. Besides, I’s the baby, who do you think mommy’s gonna believe? I’s gotta hurry and finish mine’s brekky so we can get ready to go to Tishomingo today. Fanky fankfully, it’s not s’posed to storm today. Maybe we can stop fur some special treats. Ifin you don’t tell mommy, I’s’ll bring you somethin’ back?. 

 

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

Chatting Cats: We Can See A Bright Light At the End of the Tunnel

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Looks like I’s might get to lead every Wednesday. At least fur the summer. The lawn crew seems to have chosen this day to annoy us this year. And, does this sound furmiliar? We’re preppin’ fur yet another inspection this month. Befur ya’ get your knickers in a ruffle like mommy does, NO, it’s not legal to bother us this much. The law says management can pull those silly inspections, exterminations, etc., but they must not exceed 1 purr month. Everythin’ that they wanna look at and do, excludin’ maintenance requests, must be done at the same inspection. Do these peeps care what the law says? you know the answer to that one. Anyways, let’s get to the happy stuffs.

 

 Raena looks up at Dezi while they sit on the Liberty cat tree

 

          (Dezi meows loudly from the bedroom door) There’s happy stuffs to meow ‘bout Raena?

 

Oh yes, sissy. Yesfurday’s ‘pointment went purrfectly. 

 

Dezi hides in bedroom and Raena heads down hall to her

 

          (Dezi slinks halfway down the hall towards the living room and meows) Oh yeah, yesfurday’s news was happy news Raena. We’re so glad to furinally get some good news on the dental front fur mommy. (Dezi hears the leaf blower on the porch and runs back to the bedroom

 

I’s agree sissy. By now, most of you know that mommy’s been dealin’ with some really bad teeth issues fur quite a few years. Fanky fankfully, she started down the path to remedy those purroblems earlier this year. Anyways, yesfurday mommy trekked back to Ardmore to meet yet another dentist and get a quote to finish up and get the dentures she so badly needs. Let me tell ya’, it was some kind’a hot out yesfurday, but fanky fankfully, the a/c was workin’ and runnin’ full blast. We actually arrived fur mommy’s ‘pointment a few minutes early. That’s a big deal. Fur the last few years, mommy’s been late to almost everythin’. Mommy finds that a little annoyin’ as she was always the purrson to arrive at least 15 minutes early fur everythin’. But, she ain’t gettin’ any younger, so, I’s guess lateness is just one of those things that she’s gonna have to get used too.

 

 Raena laying in stroller at dentist

 

Anyways, the office seemed quite comfy and relaxed, and the folks at the front desk were really furiendly. Mommy signed in and sat down to wait her turn. She didn’t have to wait fur long befur they was callin’ her to the back. They took some new x-rays and put her in a room and asked a few questions to purrpare her fur the doctor. After a few minutes alone watchin’ some silly movie on the small screen in front of her, a nice and very purretty lady walked in and innerduced herself as Doctor Amy. You know mine’s mommy, she’s always tellin’ peeps how nice they look and this was no exception. Mommy actually told her that she was too purretty to be a dentist. MOL They all had a good laff and Doctor Amy went in to look at mommy’s remainin’ teethies.

 

 Profile of Dezi sitting on the floor and looking toward the door

 

          Ya’ know Raena, me will never unnerstand why they always ask questions while they’ve got fingers and tools inside mommy’s mouth. Me doesn’t know how in the world they can unnerstand anythin’ mommy’s sayin’. 

 

Me either sissy, me either. Nevertheless, mommy and doctor Amy had a back and furth mumble and came up with a plan. They’re gonna pull the rest of mommy’s teeth except the 2 canines on the bottom. Apparently, lower dentures can be quite a purroblem what with movin’ ‘round, becomin’ dislodged and even fallin’ out without some kind of anchor. Ya’ know, like that denture glue or somethin’. So, in mommy’s case, that anchor is gonna be those 2 canines. Technically, mommy will need what they call a partial on the bottom, and a full denture on the top. 

 

          (Not hearing the loud noises from the lawn crew anymore, Dezi heads back down the hallway towards the living room) Well, Raena, me’s glad they could figger out a way fur mommy to keep those things in place. Wouldn’t that be just to funny fur mommy to be talkin’ to someone and have her teethies fall out in her lap. MOL 

 

 Dezi and Raena playing on floor

 

That would be funny, sissy. But, I’s glad mommy won’t have that purroblem. Let me tell ya’ how it’s all gonna work. Mommy goes in next Monday to have impressions made so they can make her new teethies, called a plate or denture. She chose the cheap one that comes with a 6 month warranty and no frills. After havin’ those impressions made, mommy will make a ‘pointment to have all those top teethies removed. She has 4 more teethies in her sinuses, so looks like she’ll be takin’ more Sudafed and not blowin’ her nose again fur a while. The cost fur all this is $1,219.00.

 

 Dezi sniffs tree ledge while Raena watches her

 

The day she has all those top teethies removed she’ll need to make another ‘pointment to have the bottom teethies removed. She’s gonna have to separate her ‘pointments cuz she doesn’t yet have enuff green papers to get it all done at the same time. Altho’ we do have our paws crossed, that by the time the dentures are made, we’ll have all the green papers and mommy can just do it all at the same time. The bottom cost is a bit higher than the top cuz they have to create teethies with a gap and wires to account fur those canine anchors they’re leavin’ in mommy’s mouth. The cost of the bottom is, $1,799.00.

 

          Let me see ifin me can simplify these nummers Raena.

Cost of top teeth removal and full denture, including adjustments as mommy’s mouth heals and shrinks:

  • $1,219.00

Cost of bottom teeth removal and partial, including adjustments as mommy’s mouth heals and shrinks:

  • $1,799.00

This all comes to a total cost of:

  • $3,018.00

We’re gonna guestimate the cost of Sudafed and other medicines at ‘round:

  • $200.00

Mommy currently has: $1,800.00.

So we need a total of:

  • $1,418.00 by the end of July

We luv our mommy so very much. We want her to be the bestest

she can be, and the happiest she can be. So, we need your help,

cuz we can’t actually make any green papers.

 

 

That’s great sissy. Fanky fanks fur simplifyin’ it like that. We’re gonna open a new fundraiser with the new figgers. Here’s the linky fur the new fundraiser: Help Mommy A and of course, you can always donate directly to our paypal at: lexi.dezi@yahoo.com . That’s lexi (dot) dezi (at) yahoo (dot) com. Because of the credit card fees, you’ll see the fundraiser is set at $1,500.00 so we can cover those charges and still get the actual amount needed. Anythin’ extra will go towards our care.

 

 Dezi and Raena lay atop the Liberty cat tree

 

          We really ‘purreciate all your help and support and purrayers. Even ifin ya’ can’t donate, purrlease share. Ya’ never know who might be out there that could help mommy. And, ifin anypawdy knows where mommy can sell her gold crown, purrlease let us know. They’ll be pullin’ it out soon and mommy would luv to be able to put that money towards her care or ours.

 

 Raena lays on shower bench

 

You got that right sissy. We have the bestest furiends in the universe. I’s just know we’ll be able to get mommy to the other side of this soon. Now, the lawn crew’s gone, so let’s go play.

 

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