Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Meowllo? Is anypawdy in here? Sissy, come here, I’s need your help. Purrleeeeease…Nuffin’ be workin’. I’s can’t get anythin’ on this machine to work. I’s tried all the browsers and I’s pushed buttons that I’s don’t even know what they’re fur…and nuffin’. What’s wrong with it sissy?
Why are you askin’ me Raena? How should me know what’s up with the computer? Why don’t you ask mommy?
She’s busy. She keeps pokin’ a pin in that box with all the lights (modem) and tryin’ to call somepawdy, sissy.
(Mommy A finally picks up the cell phone to call the internet provider after trying to reset the modem numerous times to no avail. The automated system picks up and asks a lot of questions, altho’ the opportunity to speak with a live person isn’t one of them.) Uh Oh Raena, me has a feelin’ this day just went from bad to worse. Mommy hates talkin’ to those silly machines. And did you hear it tell her that a live operator wouldn’t have any more infurmation than it did? Seems the innernet’s out all over ‘round here. Guess it’s a good thing we got that smarty pants fone or we wouldn’t know that even.
The innernet’s out?!! What do you mean the innernet’s out?!! How does that even happen? What are all our furiends doin’? How are we s’posed to check our mail, or edit our fotos or get our posty out? How are we gonna survive? We neeeeeeeed the innernet, sissy. I’s got plans to make and things to do and…
Slow down Raena and take a deep breath. Furst of all, the whole innernet ain’t out all over the world, just ours. Well, and maybe everypawdy within a hunnerd miles of us. And, the silly machine said they’re aware of it and they’re tryin’ to fix it. So, hopefully it’ll be back on soon. Most ‘purrtantly, our furiends will unnerstand. These things just happen sometimes, and there’s nuffin’ we could’a done to stop it. Hopefully, it won’t be out long.
How can you be so calm, sissy? I’s still have so much left to do to get ready fur your pawrty next week.
Me really ‘purreciates all the work you’re puttin’ into me’s pawrty Raena, but me’s sure it’s gonna be great. Me never wanted you to be so stressed out. Me wants you to enjoy it too. Ya’ know, cuz you didn’t really get to have a pawrty fur your special day this year, me was thinkin’ we could both enjoy this bash, ‘specially since you’re feelin’ better.
Y, Fanky fank you sissy. That sure is nice of you to share your catabration with me.
‘Course RaenaBelle, what are big susfurs fur?. (Dezi mumbles under her breath) Besides, mommy would make me share whether me wants to or not. Anyways, (Dezi turns and meows to Raena) Me’s sure there’ll be purrlenty of food and fun fur everyone. (Mommy A picks up Dezi and puts her in her harness) MeOW Wait a minute, where are we goin’? The last kitty out that door didn’t come back lookin’ too good. Me’s not goin’…Hisssssssss
I’s wanna go, take me mommy. Me, me meeeeeeeeeow.
Ah, votin’. ‘kay, me doesn’t mind goin’ then. You can’t go till your eyes are all better Raena. Mommy doesn’t wanna take any chances with infection ‘n stuffs. Don’t worry, we won’t be long, we’re just goin’ up the street. (A short time later, Dezi and mommy A return from the polls with news)
RaenaBelle, oh, there you are. Hey we heard the innernet’s out till some time tomorrow (Wednesday). We ran into the innernet fixer at the polls and he said they had a transfurmer out and had to order a pawrt. So, c’mon, let’s go play with our nanners.
Okay sissy, just let me try to figger out how to make a facebutt posty with the smarty pants fone.
You’ve been workin’ on that all day Raena, just give it up. Our fone’s too smart to let us open facebutt. Quit downloadin’ apps ya’ gotta turn ‘round and delete. We’ll have our computer back tomorrow. Till then, we can live like we did befur tech invaded our house. C’mon, me will show ya’ how.
I’s comin’ sissy. Kittens!!! I’s can’t believe peeps once lived without tech. (Raena shakes her head while trying to imagine what it would be like to not have computers and technology)
Till the next time……………………………………………..Be Blest!!!

Well Sunday was a mawaffon copy day and mommy got everyfin’ put all togevver late. It was pawrtly Lexi and meez fawlt it took so long cuz we made hers stop and have a luv fest a kupple times. We was boff runnin’ a bit of a temp. And no call fwum da VET. So furst fing Monday meownin’ mommy called da VET at da office and was told Dr. C was on vacation and Dr. M was in surgery but they wuld have hers call us as soon as she got out. So mommy gwabbed da fone and put it in da basket on hers wheelchair and took da paperwork up to da office. Whew (wipes brow with paw) Now da weal fun work begins. A mumff of “they” won’t accept this, or “they” need this or that. Cuz nuffin’s ever easy wiff this manager. As most of you know weez lived here a very long time, and mommy used to manage pawrtments just like these a long time ago. So she knows what she needs to turn in and has always done it wiff no purrawllem till this manager. And cuz she wants mommy gone she has to pick on us every year. So faw she’s not been too bad this year, and dat’s fanks to da purrayers of all of you and dat she got in twubble last year fwum da Purresident and VP of da management company. So keep those purrayers comin’.
It was early afternoon when all this got finished, and still no call fwum da VET so mommy called over to da office again, and got da run wound ‘bout how busy they were and dat Dr. M hadn’t had a chance to make any calls but she wuld be callin’ us afur she went home. So mommy cleaned a bit and put all her “lease wenewal” copies on da shelf fur easy access ifin she needs ‘em, and sat down to help us stawrt visitin’ all our furiends. And…OMC we didn’t have any innewrnet. Awe yous kiddin’ me? It’s been goin’ down everyday here wecently, but here it was da middle of da day. So mommy gwabbed da iPaw and headed fur mr. W’s to use hims fone to call ATT and saw our neighbor out on da porch. Since she has a puter mommy asked ifin she had innewrnet and she sed, “Nope and I don’t have a phone either. I got cut off in the middle of a conversation. It just does this all the time and there’s nothing we can do but wait it out.” Well mommy’s not all dat good wiff waitin’ it out. But since nopawdy had a fone, mommy got hers cell fone (which usually dusn’t have service in da house) and went on a walk-about twyin’ to get a signal.
Signal acquired, mommy called ATT and an hour later was told da innewrnet wuld be back up in an hour or two. Dat was @ 5:30 yesfurday afternoon and we hadn’t had service since 3:30 p.m.. But there was nuffin’ else mommy kuld do but wait. We didn’t get service back till 7:30 this meownin’. OMC Was mommy ever fit to be tied. MOL But at least we got a lot of hugs and luv and mommy and us time while we had no innewrnet. Hopefully weez back now and can stawrt visitin’. So weez’ll be by to see ya’ in a bit. Mommy checked da voicemail when we finally had service again, and there was a message fwum da VET office fwum da office manager. She sed she pawlogized dat Dr. M hadn’t called us and dat it was hers fawlt cuz she never gave hers da message to call us. Dat was at 6:30 last night. Course we had no fone by then cuz of da innewrnets bein’ down. Well needless to say, mommy’s purretty angwy ‘bout dat situation too. We do hope yous Monday was more purrductive than ours. Weez boff be feelin’ better today so mommy hasn’t called da VET office yet. Hers not sure how she wants to handle this yet. So ifin yous kuld send a few purrayers dat Lexi and me continue to get better.
Till da next time……………………Be Blest!!!
