Chatting Cats: The Eyes Have It

Raena Goes To The V-E-T (Update)

Hey, Everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle!!! Hey sissy, we’re home!!! Hurry mommy, get mine’s harness off. I’s wanna go tell sissy ‘bout mine’s visit with doctor stabby and grabby. (Raena jumps down from the stroller and heads down the hallway looking for Dezi. She makes a quick potty box detour and then paces through the house meowing and looking for Dezi.) Sissy? Sissy, where are you? Sissy, come out, I’s wanna tell ya’ what happened. (Raena walks over and jumps in mommy A’s lap and looks at her and meows) Mommy? Why won’t sissy come out? Where is she? (Raena jumps down and paces through the house meowing more persistantly this time.) Sissy!!! Sissy, I’s need to tell ya’ somethin’!!! 

 

Dezi lays on cat tree with mouth open and eyes shut

 

 

          (Dezi strolls down the hall and jumps on the cat tree) What’s all the yeowlin’ ‘bout? Ya’ come in yeowlin’ and wakin’ me up from me’s rainy day nap. Kittens!!! Your meowin’ like the house is on fire or somethin’. 

 

Raena sits pretty for the camera

 

 

 

The house is on fire too sissy? What should we do? Are we trained fur fires?

 

          (Dezi slaps her paw to her forehead) No Raena, the house ain’t on fire, it’s just a sayin’. (Dezi shakes her head) Never mind. What’s so ‘purrtant you had to wake me up. You stink like… 

 

Raena sits in stroller at vetI’s scared mommy. I’s wanna cuddle.

 

 

 

Well sissy, let me tell ya’. When we got there, all I’s could hear was woofies barkin’ and squealin’. The things they were barkin’. I’s think they tried to kill one of ‘em. Bless his heart. Then, we were sittin’ there mindin’ our own business and in walks the biggest woofie I’s ever seen. He ran right over and got all up in mine’s business. His human ‘pawrently believes like the peeps out here, like the law doesn’t apply to them. Cuz he didn’t even have on a collar much less a leash. He could’a eaten me alive befur his human could’a done anythin’. Hmmmpht What is it with those peeps? 

 

          Me doesn’t know Raena. But you’re so right. Every time me’s had to go see doctor stabby and grabby me’s almost been accosted. 

 

I’s can tell ya’, I’s would’a gone down whacky pawin’ cuz he would’a hurt mommy too since I’s was in her arms at the time. 

 

          Sure sounds like ya’ll were in the waitin’ room fur a long time Raena. Did you ever get into a room? 

 

Raena and mommy A at the vetYou always make me feel safe, mommy.

 

 

 

We were sissy. They weighed me when we walked in the door, but we had to wait fur elebenty billion 30 minutes befur we ever got a room of our own. Didn’t take long fur doctor stabby and grabby to show up then. He kept shinin’ a light in mines eyes and it hurted. Mommy’s a little bit furious, but she says that after 2 1/2 years of takin’ me in and complainin’ ‘bout mine’s eye issue, we furinally have an answer to what’s wrong. I’s hate that it made mommy cry tho’. She said she felt just horrible that I’s been in pain every day of mine’s life and she didn’t do more to find an answer sooner. I’s told her she shouldn’t feel bad, she did the bestest she could. 

 

          Well what’s wrong with ya’, Raena?  

 

Raena looks up at mommy while snuggling close at the vet Can we leave mommy? I’s don’t wanna wait fur doctor stabby and grabby.

 

 

 

Well sissy, I’s can’t say all the big words, so I’s told mommy that I’s would s’plain it kind’a like doctor stabby and grabby did and once we got the plan of action estimate, she could tell everypawdy. See, mine’s bottom eyelids turn in some. And there’s these tiny little fur hairs attached to ‘em that are s’posed to purrtect our eyes from stuffs flyin’ in ‘em. Cuz mine’s are turned in, those tiny little fur hairs are constantly scratchin’ and irritatin’ mines eyes. So, they’re constantly irritated and that’s why they’re always gunky and I’s sometimes close ‘em up and can’t see anythin’. 

 

          Oh Raena, me’s sorry. Me didn’t know. 

 

Raena looks down while snuggling with mommy at vetMaybe ifin I’s pout, mommy’ll take me home.

 

 

 

It’s okay sissy, nopawdy did and I’s couldn’t s’plain it. 

 

          So, now that they’ve figgered out what the purroblem is Raena, what are they gonna do ‘bout it?  

 

Raena sits on table at vetSurgery?!! I’s don’t wanna have surgery!!! I’s fur sure don’t want

your hands in mine’s mouth.

 

 

 

 

Well sissy, I’s gonna have to have laser surgery to make mine’s eyelids turn out right like they’re s’posed too. And, it seems I’s might have some gum issues too, so while I’s out of it fur mine’s eye surgery, doctor stabby and grabby’s gonna clean mine’s teethies and see what’s goin’ on in mine’s mouth. He said they’re gonna shave all the furs off mine’s eyes. Ifin I’s bein’ honest, I’s a little bit scared sissy. 

 

          Me is too Raena. Are they gonna make you stay in the hospital? 

 

Raena lays on the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

Nope sissy. Fanky fankfully fur mommy. She told ‘em she wasn’t leavin’ mine’s side at all. Doctor stabby and grabby said that was fine and then mumbled somethin’ ‘bout hopin’ the insurance covered it. Anyways, I’s’ll be comin’ home that afternoon. We have to be there at 6:30 the meownin’ of November 15th. So, I’s gonna have to plan your pawrty fur a time befur that.

 

          So you already have the ‘pointment huh Raena? 

 

Yep sissy. Seems once doctor stabby and grabby figgered out what’s wrong with me, it’s suddenly urgent that I’s have mine’s purrcedure. Altho’, mommy said she wishes we could do it tomorrow. She really feels bad that I’s been hurtin’ fur so long and she didn’t fix it. It’s gonna cost a couple hunnerd dollars. I’s don’t know where we’re gonna get it from, but I’s sure hope we do. I’s can’t even ‘magine mine’s eyes not hurtin’. That’s gonna be so pawsum. 

 

          Well Raena, we’ll have to ask our furiends ifin they’ll help us help you. Ifin not, maybe me can sell a kidney or somethin’. Guess we’ll have to post the estimate as soon as doctor stabby and grabby sends it to us.

 

Yeah sissy, he was too busy when we were there to write it up; doctor stabby and grabby two had the day off. But he purromissed to get it to us in a day or two. Fanky fankfully, he’s runnin’ a special on dentals right now and we do get a Service Cat discount. Mommy said t’ween your last ‘pointment and mine’s visit we’re already at our hunnerd dollar credit limit with him. So we have to pay fur mine’s purrcedure the day I’s have it done. Ifin anypawdy can help me get mine’s eyes fixed, you can donate to our paypal address at: lexi.dezi@yahoo.com. Or you can donate directly to doctor stabby and grabby’s office: Carter County Animal Hospital, Ardmore OK. (580)226-1001 (Dr. Cade Wilson). Our account is unner mommy’s name: Audra High. I’s sure would ‘purreciate it. And I’s could use your purrayers too.  

 

Dezi bows her head to pray

 

 

 

          Me will purray fur you Raena. Me wants you to be all better too. Who knows, that might have somethin’ to do with why you’re such a pest. Who knows what you’re gonna be like when you’re no longer in constant pain.

 

Raena sits on cat tree with her carnival mask onI’s tryin’ on masks fur sissy’s pawrty.

 

 

 

Well sissy, I’s thinkin’ we should have your Carnival Birthday/Gotchaday pawrty on Wednesday November 14th. There’s still time to put on your mask and send (email to: lexi.dezi@yahoo.com) us your foto to be included in the festivities. Ifin you’re havin’ trouble findin’ a mask, let us know. We want all our furiends to attend, so we’ll help ya’ any way we can.

 

          (Hours pass and find Raena sleeping off the day. This morning, Raena’s feeling lethargic and didn’t get up to eat breakfast. Dezi worriedly paces from the bedroom to the living room again and again, searching for Raena.) RaenaBelle? C’mon, get up, it’s time fur brekky. Me will let you jump on me as many times as you want. Just get up Raena, it’s time. 

 

(Raena opens her eyes, but doesn’t lift her head) I’s will sissy, just let me finish mine’s nap. 

 

          Purrlease keep Raena in your purrayers.

 

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

Blest Sunday: Sisterly Conversations

MeOW  WooHoo  It’s Blest Sunday and me has so much to give fanks fur this week. RaenaBelle, where are you, it’s time to count our Blessings. Me swears, you’re never where you’re s’posed to be. (Raena comes running down the hall and jumps over Dezi) Hisssssssss Quit jumpin’ on me!!! Kittens, You can be such a pest sometimes. 

 

Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

          But I’s luvs you sissy. I’s just wanna play with mine’s bestest sisfur ever. 

 

Dezi and Raena eat out of their new dishes

 

 

Me’s your only sisfur, Raena. Besides, what you call play is more like bein’ a pest. You know, like me’s piddle purroblems. Mommy insists that me splain to everypawdy why me was avoidin’ the pawtty box, so they wouldn’t think mommy be mistreatin’ me and overlookin’ me bein’ sick. Furst me wants to meow fank you fur your concern, but me’s pawtty box issues are more behavioral and have a name…RaenaBelle the mighty huntress. 

 

Raena lays on top of the litterbox

 

 

 

          You blame me fur everythin’ sissy. It ain’t right, just not right at all. I’s gonna tell mommy you’re bein’ mean to me. 

 

Hmmmmpht  Go ahead Raena, you’re fur sure to blame here. Some of ya’ may ‘member back when sis Lexi got sick and had trouble balancin’. Mommy took the covers off our pawtty boxes to help her. Then when Raena showed up, she kept tryin’ to play with me’s tail while me was takin’ care of business; so we had to get a new pawtty box with a lid. Things were goin’ purretty well till this summer, when Raena took up layin’ in wait on top of the pawtty box. Me swears, the girl never stops. Anyways, bein’ the ambush hunter she is, she started tryin’ to whacky paw me while me was usin’ the facilities. So, me’s only recourse was to pawtty somewhere else…the floor and then the piddle pads. Most of this has been worked out, but mommy decided to leave some piddle pads down, just in case. And of course, she hopes we’ll use them fur hairballs and upset tummy hurls. 

 

Raena wipes her eye while laying on the cat scratcher

 

 

 

          Yeah, like you’d actually try to hit a piddle pad sissy. When you need to hurl, you just stand up and let ‘er rip no matter where you are. 

 

That’s not true Raena, me hit the piddle pad just the other day. 

 

          Sure you did sissy. That was after lettin’ a big chunk go on the floor and mommy runnin’ over to try to put somethin’ unner you. You took off runnin’ down the hall and hit the edge of a piddle pad. 

 

Dezi eats out of new dish

 

 

 

Still, me did hit it Raena and that’s all that counts. Anyways, ‘nuff ‘bout all that. What did you think of our new dinner plates that we won? 

 

          I’s thinkin’ I’s gonna like ‘em sissy. At furst I’s was a little ‘fraid of ‘em. But hey, they hold more than our current dishes, so that’s a win in mine’s book. Now we just gotta convince mommy to fill ‘em up.

 

Me agrees Raena. No sense in lettin’ all that space go to waste. Me knows you like that they’re shallow cuz of your smashed face. 

 

Dezi and Raena eat out of new dishes

 

 

 

          Mine’s face isn’t smashed sissy. I’s just got a short nose. Mommy says I’s bootyful, even with mine’s short nose. 

 

Whatever Raena. Hey did you see me’s new get up fur the Cat Scout choir auditions?  

 

          I’s did sissy. Can I’s use it too? I’s luvs to sing. Maybe we can record a song and dedicate it to mommy. We’re so Blest to have such a pawsum mommy, and I’s sure she’d luvs to hear us sing a song to her. 

 

Dezi with headphones on - selfie

 

 

 

We’ll see Raena. Furst me has to figger out how to set up everythin’. But you’re purrobably right, mommy would luv us to sing together. She luvs any kind of togetherness. And, since me’s been hangin’ out with ya’ll all week in spite of the storms, she’s on cloud nine right now. 

 

          That’s true sissy. I’s know we’re both very purroud of you fur overcomin’ your fears. 

 

How many times does me have to tell ya’, me’s not afraid Raena. Me just didn’t see any need to hunt UTB this week. 

 

Raena lays in mommy's lap getting loveDo you like mine’s pawrty plans mommy?

 

 

 

Sure sissy, whatever you meow. Anyways…I’s wanna give fanky fanks fur you and mommy. I’s so Blest to be a pawrt of our family. And, we’re so Blest to have such amazin’ furiends. And meowin’ of furiends, I’s was thinkin’ we could have a Carnivale themed pawrty to celebrate your birthday and gotchaday. You know, like in Venice. What do you think? I’s thinkin’ everypawdy could throw on their bestest carnivale masks and send us their fotos. We could even have a contest fur the bestest outfit. 

 

 

Dezi looks up at the cat tree while laying on the arm of the chair

 

 

 

That sounds like fun Raena. You just might pull of me’s pawrty after all. Me can’t wait to see all our furiends dressed up fur the pawrty. Let’s wrap this up fur now so me can go and find me’s own mask. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to Give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. Fank you fur bein’ Blessings in ours. 

 

          Don’t furget the Sunday Selfies with the Kitties Blue.

Chatting Cats: 12 Amazing And Fabulous Facts

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Hey sissy, I’s think we got a new neighbor. I’s saw peeps cartin’ stuffs in to that ‘pawrtment on the end there fur the last couple of days. I’s sure hope all their stuffs didn’t get soaked durin’ the storms. Can you ‘magine sittin’ on a soppy wet chair? Ugh (Raena shudders and turns back to look out the door again.) I’s bet it would stink too. 

 

Dezi lays in chair while Raena gets down behind her

 

 

 

          Actually Raena, me can ‘magine it. Our ‘pawrtment flooded a few years back and everythin’ was wet and yucky. It took furever to get the management peeps to do their job and get us dried out. Are you sure you saw ‘em carryin’ in furniture stuff? Ya’ know, it might just be somepawdy cleanin’ up the ‘pawrtment after the last purrson moved out. Anyways, me thought we were gonna play CK’s amazin’ facts game. 

 

Raena lays on the liberty cat treeI’s don’t know why you kitties don’t wanna purr along with mine’s business plan?.

 

 

 

Oh yeah. I’s just luvs learnin’ things ‘bout our furiends. I’s hope lots of kitties, woofies and peeps play along. Maybe I’s can even get mine’s next business idea from it. Ya’ know, the plans fur Purrs with a Purr-Puss aren’t goin’ so good. Lots of kitties don’t seem to wanna work. They’d rather give their purrs away fur a few measly treats. I’s keep tellin’ ‘em we could be rich, rich, rich and have tons of treats. Y, We could even make enuff green papers to buy our own treat farm. But no, no kitty seems innerested. And well, we can’t be every where ourselves, so looks like I’s need another plan. 

 

Raena lays on scratcher looking over her shoulderBack to the drawin’ board, Raena.

 

 

 

          Sorry ‘bout that Raena. Me did think that was your bestest idea so far. Anyways, let’s answer these questions and see what happens. Me’s sure you’ve got ideas just waitin’ to come out. Me will take the furst question.

 

Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

 

 

1. What is your favorite day of the week?

          Truth is, we luv everyday. Mommy says each day we have together is a Blessing. But, me is pawrtial to Sundays cuz that’s the day we get to meow Fank you fur all our Blessings.

 

 

2. What is the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten?

     It’s mine’s turn now sissy. Altho’, we don’t actually eat many strange things ‘round here. I’s think I’s might have eaten one of those crazy gnats once. And I’s have been known to eat a dried up left over piece of food that you spit out onto the floor. Other than that, we don’t really get many strange things here.

 

 

3. What small business would you like to start?

     Well, I’s tried to start up Purrs with a Purr-Puss. And, I’s not completely sure it’s a dead idea. But I’s will be lookin’ into other ventures. Maybe I’s could get peeps to pay us fur the honor of feedin’ treats to kitties. Or maybe… 

 

          Enuff Raena. Let’s move on to the next question.

 

 

4. What is the best food on a hot summer day?

          When it’s really hot, me doesn’t really wanna eat much. But, me has had a few licks of ice cream befur, and it was purretty tasty.

5. When have you had a small decision bring big consequences?

          Me fur sure wants to answer this one. The day me met mommy, me chose to go to her ‘stead of play with me’s 10 littermates. And cuz of that, mommy saved me’s life and brought me home with her to live and luv furever and ever.

 

 

6.What vegetable do you like?

     We’re kitties and obligate carnivores. We don’t like vegetables. Any vegetables. Come to think of it, is mommy an obligate carnivore too sissy? You know, she don’t really like veggies either. 

 

          That’s a good question Raena. Me has no idea. But, you’re right; mommy doesn’t like veggies.

 

 

7. Where are you most likely to be at 8:00 on a Saturday night?

          Anyways, it’s me’s turn. Ifin we’re on time, then we’ll be eatin’ at 8:00 on any night. Least that’s the case at this time of year. Now, in the winter time, we eat at 7:00 p.m.. You oughtta take the next one Raena. You’re the one that watches too much tv and uses all those silly terms you learn.

 

 

8. What slang word or phrase do you like to use?

     Are those slang words sissy? Hmmmmm I’s don’t really have a favorite. I’s hear mommy say somethin’ ‘bout kissin’ her lily white sometimes. Not sure what her lily white is, but…

 

 

 

9. Did you ever want to change your name? If so to what?

          Me would never wanna change me’s name. Mommy said the minute me chose her that me was her Destiny, and that’s what she named me. She just changed the spellin’ so me could be unique. 

 

I’s wouldn’t wanna change mine’s name either sissy. Since mine’s name means new beginnings, I’s think it’s purrfect.

 

 

10. What food do you crave?

          Rabbit!!! Me can meow fur both of us on this one. And pizza, we do luv a good pepperoni pizza.

11. If your life had a sound track what song would you pick for it?

          Mommy says our soundtraks would be, You are so Beautiful and Unchained Melody and… 

 

It’s mine’s turn sissy. Mine’s would be, Stand By Me and Walk Through This World With Me, and I’s think the soundtrak fur our family would be When You Say Nothing At All and The Keeper of the Stars. Yep, I’s think that’s it fur sure.

 

 

12. If you could have lunch with anyone living who would it be?

          This one’s easy peasy and would be the same fur all of us. We’d luv to have lunch with all of you, our dear furiends. 

 

Dezi atop the liberty cat tree with Raena sitting pretty on a lower ledge

 

You’re so right sissy. That would be such an amazin’ lunch. This has been lots of fun. ‘Course as always, when we get sentimental, we shed a few tears. Mommy says music speaks to the heart and can soothe the savage beastie.

 

          Me thinks that’s why she sings to us so much Raena. She’s tryin’ to calm you down. MOL  

 

Funny sissy, very funny. Let’s go play. I’s think you got a package fur one of your cat scout projects. And, we need to visit a few furiends durin’ the storm’s lull. 

 

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