Chatting Cats: What?! Another One?!

(Dezi hears mommy and Raena coming in the door and runs to the liberty cat tree to greet them) Meow mommy, me missed ya’ll. (Mommy gives Dezi some love and lets Raena out of the stroller and her harness

 

 Dezi watches Raena atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

           Oh sissy, you’re never gonna believe what happened today.

 

Did ya’ll bring back any treats fur us?

 

 Dezi and Raena lay together on the floor

 

          Nope sissy, no treats today. (Raena bathes her mane and meows) Ya’ know, we had to go back to the dentist to get mommy’s bite made all over again. Seems the furst one didn’t turn out. Anyways, when we got there, the office was full of peeps waitin’ to see the dentist. Mommy happened to look at the board that lists the doctor’s name and didn’t see doctor Amy listed anywhere. We waited fur what seemed like furever befur bein’ called to the back by some young girl we’d never seen befur. She took mommy straight back to the dentist chair and pulled up mommy’s x-ray’s on the catputer. Mommy called her over and quietly mentioned that she didn’t see doctor Amy’s name on the duty board. And then she asked the nice little girl ifin doctor Amy was just off fur the day or what?. 

 

And what’d she say Raena. Me knows mommy really likes doctor Amy. 

 

 Dezi and Raena lay together on the floor

 

          Well sissy, seems doctor Amy doesn’t work there anymore. She left and went to work somewhere down in Texas a few days after mommy’s last ‘pointment. Nopawdy seemed to know ifin she had planned and knew that she was leavin’ when mommy was discussin’ her future ‘pointment. Least, ifin they did, they weren’t talkin’ ‘bout it. So, that meant mommy was gonna be seein’ another new dentist. She did find out that the nice little girly had been hired just last week. And, it seems that it’s hard to keep dentists in the office. So, ya’ might not know who you’ll see from ‘pointment to ‘pointment.

 

Oh no, Raena. What happened next?

 

 Raena lays on the floor and looks at the camera

 

 

          Well, we waited a little while longer and furinally an older man in a white coat came in and said hey to mommy. He never innerduced himself, but mommy learned from the nice little girl that his name was doctor Haynes. He was very soft spoken and gentle. He looked over mommy’s records and then looked in her mouth. He put these pink things in her mouth and then squirted this blue glue like stuff all over her teethies. Mommy says those pink things are gonna be her dentures, and that blue glue stuffs is used to make the impressions. Mommy says that stuff is ice cold and made her teethies hurt really bad. I’s couldn’t get to her when she started cryin’, and I’s hated it. Fanky fankfully, it didn’t last too long. Pawrently that stuff dries in a jiffy and they took it outta her mouth as soon as it did. Mommy was spittin’ out blue stuff fur the longest time afterwards. 

 

Well Raena, did mommy like doctor Haynes at least?

 

 Dezi and Raena lay together on the floor

 

 

          Yep sissy, doctor Haynes seems nice enuff. But, at this point we’re not sure he’ll even be there next week when mommy’s s’posed to go back in and have all that work done. We sure hope so, but ya’ never know. Anyways, after mommy’s ‘pointment, we just headed home. So, no treats fur us. 

 

Well, we’ll just have to purray doctor Haynes stays put. Maybe since her’s older, he’s thru bouncin’ ‘round and lookin’ fur more money. ‘Course, we think it’s crazy that they be complainin’ ‘bout not makin’ enuff money. We’ve learned durin’ all of this, that purrices ‘round here are a bit higher than other places. And, speakin’ of green papers, we still need some help. You can donate thru the fundraiser here or directly into our paypal with lexi.dezi@yahoo.com. We’d also ‘purreciate any shares and purrayers you can spare.

 

 Raena bites at her collar bells

Can you guess what I’s doin’?

 

 

          Hey sissy, can I’s tell everypawdy what’s comin’ up Furiday? You know, I’s gonna be meowin’ ‘bout our new jewelry.

 

Me thinks you just did Raena. What do you think ‘bout our new jewelry? 

 

          Ifin I’s tell ya’ now sissy, what would me meow ‘bout Furiday?

 

 Dezi lays on the floor and takes a nap

 

(Dezi rolls her eyes and meows) Fine Raena, wait till Furiday. Let’s go finish our dinner, me’s ’bout ready fur bedtime.

 

 

 

 

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

Blest Sunday: Always Giving Thanks

C’mon Raena, we gotta get our Blest Sunday posty written befur the storms come back. We don’t wanna miss the oppurrtunity to give fanks fur all the blessings we’ve received.

  

 Dezi looks out door from atop the Liberty cat tree while Raena sleeps on the ledge below her

 

          Ifin you didn’t spend so much time UTB when it’s stormin’ sissy, we wouldn’t have to be in a hurry. ‘Sides, where’d these storms come from anyways? Mommy was just talkin’ to awnty Vonda, who was havin’ really bad storms, and sayin’ we were all clear?.

  

 Dezi atop the Liberty cat tree

 

Leave it to the weather guessers to get it wrong Raena. The furcast might have said all clear, but the skies had another plan. Anyways, speakin’ of awnty Vonda, what did you think ‘bout the purse she got mommy fur her birthday? 

 

 Raena peeking out from under packing paper

 

          I’s like it sissy, don’t you? And, did you see all that pawsum packin’ paper that came in it? What fun!!!

 

Yeah Raena, me can’t miss it. It’s all over the floor. You sure can be messy. 

 

          Messy?!! I’s just havin’ fun, sissy. 

 

 Dezi looks down from atop the liberty cat tree

 

Yeah, it does look kind’a fun Raena. Maybe me will join ya’ slidin’ ‘round the floor later. 

 

 Raena pees out from under the packing paper

 

          That’d be great sissy, there’s purrlenty of paper fur both of us. Ya’ know, mommy was really happy her purse had gone on sale. She has a sayin’ that you shouldn’t spend more fur a bag than you have to put in it. Altho’ awnty Vonda had sent mommy some “anything/furivolous” money, she still didn’t wanna waste it.

Mommy says Fank you awnty Vonda.

 

That’s true Raena. Mommy can hold onto a dollar and stretch it like it’s rubber. So, that sale was just what mommy needed. When awnty Vonda asked what mommy was gonna buy, she held off sayin’ till the purrice fell low enuff. And then, she got us some treats with the rest.

 

          Treats? Are we havin’ treats?

 

 Dezi eats Primal rabbit, duck and chicken and salmon

 

No silly, it’s brekky time. You know we don’t get treats till after we eat all our brekky.

 

          We better hurry then, cuz I’s want some treats. We sure are blest sissy. 

 

We are indeed Raena. But befur we go, we wanna say a meowsy big Fank you to awnty Carol and awnty Kathleen fur donatin’ to mommy’s dental fundraiser. We’re so close to gettin’ mommy all taken care of. Ifin you can help with a donation, share and/or a purrayer, we sure would ‘purreciate it. You can give thru the fundraiser here, or donate directly to our paypal at: lexi.dezi@yahoo.com.

Here’s mine’s sleepy selfie. Mommy says i’s have an angelic face.

Pardon the blur, mommy was usin’ the telescopin’ lens.

 

 

          I’s so happy and x’cited fur mommy, sissy. Ya’ know, she’s had teefy purroblems since I’s came here. I’s bet she’s gonna be a whole new purrson when her mouth’s no longer in pain. And, I’s can’t wait fur tomorrow when we go to get impressions made fur mommy’s new teefies. She calls ‘em dentures and says once she’s healed she’ll be good as new with her fake teeth.

Me’s happy too Raena. Ya’ know, she’s had teefy purroblems since long befur you came here. She survived 3 rounds of cancer, several severe car accidents, and a couple really bad ‘bouts of pneumonia. Mommy says she had actually resigned herself to the fact that her teefies would be the thing that killed her. Fur years she’s been battlin’ infections and constant breaks. Me’s just glad she’s furinally gettin’ to feel better. And, that she’s gonna stay ’round fur a while.

Here’s me’s profile selfie.

 

 

          And on that happy note sissy, let’s wrap this up and see ‘bout gettin’ some of those treats you meowed ‘bout earlier. As always we wanna remind everypawdy to give thanks today and every day fur the many blessings in your lives. And, we’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies.

 

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

 

 Dezi and Raena and mommy A in a frame collage

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!!!
