Chatting Cats: Dear Santa

Hey Raena, we need to hurry and eat our brekky, we’ve got lots to do today. (Dezi hears a noise in the distance and runs over to mommy’s chair to get a little reassurance. Raena runs to the perch and looks out the door and sees the lawn crew blowing leaves all over the place.)  Hisssss What are they doin’ here?!! Can’t they see everything’s dead?  

 

 

Raena looks out door from perch

 

 

 

          I’s reckon that’s purrobably why they’re here sissy. We need somepawdy to blow all those leaves off our porch. Mommy had to wade thru a huge pile last night so she could check our mail. They better get our leaves befur they pack up and go.  (Raena sees the lawn crew packing up without blowing the leaves off the porch.)

 

Dezi lays in chair

 

 

 

That doesn’t make me like ‘em tho’ Raena. Anyways, tonight’s the night we head to the North Pole with the Cat Scouts to visit Santa. Let’s get our letters ready, okay?

          Okay sissy. I’s really glad you decided to let me come with ya’ll. This is gonna be so much fun. Why don’t we combine our letters. You can start while I’s go link us up with Comedy Plus fur Feline Furiday

 

Sounds good Raena.

  Dear Santa,

   It’s me, Deztinee. Hope your year’s been a good one. Me’s been a good girl…mostly. Me’s spent a lot of time reflectin’ on how Blest me is to have a luvvin’ furever mommy and home. Me even thinks Raena’s a blessing. Me so worries fur the kitties that don’t have the security me does. To know what it feels like to be so luvved that you can do no wrong. To never have to go to bed hungry or scared. To never have to worry ‘bout the weather or ifin somepawdy’s gonna hurt me. Me never has to wonder ‘bout what tomorrow may bring, me just knows that mommy will take care of me.

 

  It seems no matter how much infurmation’s available or what peeps are told, they still think kitties can survive on their own outside. Me knows that a lot of those kitties will never fully trust humans again. But, fur those who can, could you purrlease find ‘em a furever home of their own? And fur the rest, maybe you could spare some supplies fur their caretakers. Me knows it sometimes seems like a fankless job, but fur sure those kitties they care fur are grateful, as are we.

 

  And fur all those anipals waitin’ in shelters, could you send them furever mommies and daddies? Livin’ in a cage is no kind’a life, just ask Raena. We know there are some pawsum shelters out there, but there’s nuffin’ in the universe like havin’ your own luvvin’ family. And fur those shelters and rescue groups, could you purrlease give them lots of supplies and volunteers so they can help more anipals in the future.

          Hey ya’ Santa, I’s RaenaBelle am here too. Mommy says I’s purrfect…most of the time. I’s won’t repeat what sissy meowed, but I’s would like all that too. And I’s know I’s meow fur both of us when I’s ask that you give our furiends everything they want. They’ve been such amazin’ furiends to us, they all deserve the world. We get so happy when we see our furiends happy.

 

          I’s know things are a bit crazy ‘round here fur us, but sissy and me are so Blest to have our luvvin mommy that we don’t really need anythin’. I’s mean, sure there are things we’d like to have, but mommy makes sure we have purrlenty of food and cuddles that it would really be selfish to ask fur more.

 

          Hey, ifin they make a don’t worry pill, maybe you could leave a couple fur mommy tho’. Ifin not, that’s okay, sissy and me have plans to give her lots of extra luvvin’ fur Christmas. And maybe you could leave a little somethin’ fur sissy. She really is a good sissyfur and I’s luvs her so much. She luvs scratchers and silvervine and nip toys. I’s mean, we’ll unnerstand ifin ya’ skip us tho’, we totally get the havin’ to pay fur the goodies you drop off.  

 

Well Santa, Raena and me are gonna wrap it up fur this year. As she meowed, we have everythin’ a kitty could ever dream of. Well, our fountain did break a while back and we sure do miss it; ‘specially Raena. That girl does luv to play in the water. We saw a really cool one that would be purrfect fur both our needs. Maybe you could put in a word fur us fur next year. Ifin we got an allowance we’d save up and pay ya’ ourselves, but mommy said she’d work on it fur us. So, we’re all good. Take care of yourself, have a Blest Christmas. 

 

Yours Truly, 

Deztinee and RaenaBelle   

 

Okay Raena, let’s put our letter in our back pack so we can give it to the big guy in purrson.   

 

          Okay sissy, fanky fank you fur lettin’ me tag along. Do you think we should take a gift fur Santa? Maybe we could share one of our nip nanners. 

 

Great idea Raena. Let’s find one that hasn’t been luvved quite as much as the other. Me would like to meow somethin’ fur the kiddies out there right quick. Ifin ya’ don’t get everythin’ on your list, don’t get mad. Your pawrents have to pay real money fur the things Santa brings to you, and as much as they may want to give you everythin’, it’s not always pawssible. Christmas is in your heart. It’s your family and furiends. It’s the luv you feel. 

 

          You’re so right sissy. And, luvs is the greatest gift of all. I’s know we wish we could send each and every one of our furiends a gift to put unner their Christmas tree, it’s just not pawssible. So, to all of you, from mommy A, sis Dezi and me, we send you luvs and purrayers to keep in your heart.

     And we wish you a Merry and Blest Christmas!!!  

 

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

Chatting Cats: Feline Friday Plans

MeOW WooHoo It’s furinally Furiday!!! And let me tell ya’, it’s cold and yucky and gray outside. There’s like a bazillion dead leaves all over the place. Everytime mommy opens the door they try to get inside. Ya’ know, some places have these really purretty leaves, but not us. Nope, our leaves are all one color…dead. That reminds me, in case you missed our announcement, Service Cat Furidays will return in the new year. We’re just takin’ a little break. What with the holidays comin’ and all, we thought mommy’s brain could use a little rest. After all, she is the one that has to do all the research and stuffs fur our Service Cat postys. In the meantime, you can always ketch up on any posts from our series by clickin’ the links on our Training Tips and Everything Feline page. And you can always send us your questions via our Contact page.

          Wha’ch’a doin’ sissy? 

 

Nuffin’ Raena. Me was just remindin’ peeps that our educational Furidays will be back. Ya’ know, lots of peeps come here on Furidays that don’t come by the rest of the week. Me just wanted to remind ‘em that things would be back to normal after the holidays. Me’s favorite holidays are Fanksgivin’ and Christmas; and they’ll both be here befur ya’ know it.

 

Raena lays on the back of the chair post surgeryMine’s eyes are doin’ really good as you can see.

 

 

 

          I’s can’t wait fur Christmas sissy. But furst, we’ve got your birthday/gotchaday pawrty next week. Me and mommy are gonna be workin’ all weekend to put the final touches together. Since we spent so long without the innernet we didn’t get to it earlier. 

 

Dezi scratches cat scratcher while looking at the camera

 

 

 

Me’s gettin’ really x’cited Raena. Me can’t wait to see what you have planned. Me sure hopes it’s better than your business plans. Come to think of it, you haven’t had one of those in a while. What’s up? 

 

          Well sissy, it’s not fur the lack of thinkin’, but t’ween plannin’ your pawrty and mine’s surgery, I’s just haven’t had the time to put anythin’ together to purrpose. 

 

Me thought fur sure you’d have somethin’ planned befur the holidays Raena. We need to do somethin’ so we can get each other and mommy a purresent.

          Actually sissy, I’s just thought we could go with some of those Purrs With A Purr-Puss. You know how much mommy luvs a good purr. And fanky fankfully, we don’t need any green papers to buy ‘em. I’s been checkin’ the ads and even ifin we started a business now we wouldn’t be able to raise enuff to buy anythin’. Y, I’s couldn’t believe the store’s chargin’ almost $3.00 a pound fur a turkey tom lurkey. I’s didn’t even check to see what they were chargin’ fur hams. ‘Specially since the crazy peeps ‘round here just approved another couple of tax increases. (Raena shakes her head) I’s just don’t get it?. We already have the highest taxes of anypawdy at 10 purrcent and now they wanna go and add another 3/4’s cent to it.

 

Well then, Purrs With A Purr-Puss it is Raena. Maybe we can think of somethin’ else to go with it t’ween now and then. Me doesn’t know where these peeps get the money fur all these taxes. Anyways, as mommy always says, Ya’ can’t miss what ya’ don’t have. 

 

          True sissy, mommy says that a lot. So, ya’ wanna go play? I’s have a little time befur I’s need to get back to mine’s plannin’.

Sure Raena, me will play fur a bit. But, when me meows enuff, that’s it. Okay? Let me just link up with Comedy Plus fur Feline Furidays right quick and me will be right behind ya’. Don’t furget to send in your pawrty fotos to be included in the pawrty post and contest. Me hears Raena’s plannin’ a big surpurrise fur the winner.

 

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

The following post will be written in human English for reader and translator ease. Our Service Cat posts aren’t intended to be an all inclusive Training Manual but rather Tips, Tricks and Techniques used/developed by mommy A thru her many years of animal training, cats in purr-ticular. And to offer insight into your questions about Everything Feline. Always remember, successful Training is all about Repetition and Rewards.

Last week we wrote about Vitamin D and the importance of a balanced nutritional feline diet. We discussed Feline Nutrition here, but we’ve not discussed in detail all of the ingredients, supplements and additives in your cat’s food. So, we were wondering how many of you would be interested in learning about these ingredients? Just because it’s in your cat’s food, doesn’t necessarily mean it should be. And, with all the conflicting opinions out there, choosing kitty’s food can get confusing. Let us know in the comments if you’d like to learn more about pet food ingredients, including trends and industry buzz words.

Okay already, Me likes you Raena.

 

 

 

Getting Along:

 

     We’ve been asked a couple of questions that don’t really require a whole post to answer. So, we thought we’d cover those today. We’re often asked if Raena and me got along right away. Mommy says it would be great and for sure make her life a lot easier if we had hit it off from the get go. But the truth is a big fat No. And, sis Lexi and me weren’t immediate besties either. However, we are proof that you can have a multi cat household where each kitty can feel safe and confident in their shared home. We don’t have extra rooms with doors that can closed off to allow for the traditional method of introducing new kitties, so mommy’s technique only allows for a couple of days for kitties to protest and lodge their complaints about the new comer. After which, she fully expects and will accept nothing less than kitties happily cohabiting in peace.

 

Lexi and Dezi lay together in the window perch

 

 

 

     Me still remembers the splat sis Lexi handed down the first time she saw me and how she ran off down the hall screaming. That was a long time ago. We became the best of friends and sisfurs. Me couldn’t have asked for a better role model or more loving big sissy. Of course, me had to pass along me’s own brand of displeasure when Raena joined our home. And we still have the occasional disagreement, but for the most part, we get along. More importantly, we work well together and are secure in our place in our home. If you’re adding a new kitty to your home, you can read our Tips for introducing them to your resident kitty(s) here

 

 

Paws up Dezi

 

 

 

Are Cats Ambidextrous:

 

     Another interesting question we were asked is: Do cats favor one paw over the other? In other words, are cats right or left pawed? Is that even a thing? Believe it or not, cats do favor one paw over the other. Cats can also be ambidextrous, meaning they use both right and left paws interchangeably. Like humans, the majority of kitties and doggies are right pawed/handed.

Remember Me Thursday:

 

     Right pawed, left pawed or ambidextrous, all kitties are wonderful. And all kitties deserve the chance to be loved and have a happy life. We encourage anyone looking to add a kitty to your family, to check out the local shelters and rescues in your area. Old or young, disabled or not, there’s sure to be a kitty waiting for you. We would like to remind you to do some research before adopting. Altho’ you may not know everything about the kitties at the shelter, there are things you can assume by knowing a little about breed traits. And please, don’t adopt a special needs kitty if you can’t afford to take care of them financially. While we don’t believe that money or the lack of it should prevent anyone from sharing their lives with a furry purrer, we do believe that one should be realistic. Special needs kitties can cost thousands upon thousands of dollars in medical bills. For someone like mommy, that would be impossible to do. Unexpected health care costs are something no one can predict, so we just say use some common sense.

We luvs the camera, so we have lots of shots where half our face is cut off. Blooper!!!
