Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. (Dezi and Raena pace in the living room waiting for mommy to put down the breakfast plates. Suddenly they hear the roar of the lawn crew. They look at each other and Dezi runs down the hall toward the bedroom. Raena runs behind her and then stops. She remembers passing mommy on all fours heading for the living room with her breakfast and turns back towards mommy. Just as she reaches mommy and starts to rub against her there’s a knock at the door. Raena steps slightly forward, looks out the slightly ajar door and hisses. Mommy, still on all fours with breakfast plates on her back, gently says)
It’s just the manager and bug man honey. They’re here for inspections and exterminations. (As mommy tries to get to the door without dropping the breakfast plates from her back, she contemplates how she’s going to open the door. Raena walks slowly beside mommy, rubbing against her occasionally. When mommy finally gets to the door, nobody’s there, and she feels a sense of relief. Mommy and Raena butt heads as they head to the living room. The noise of the lawn crew wanes as they move to the other side of the property and Dezi runs up and rubs against mommy. Breakfast plates down and mommy in her sittin’ chair, Dezi and Raena begin to eat.)
Sissy? Why do we always run when the lawn crew shows up? You know we’re s’posed to be helpin’ mommy. Besides, they’re just noisy. They can’t actually hurt us.
(Dezi stops and nonchalantly scratches her ear) Me doesn’t know why you run Raena. Me is helpin’ mommy. Me’s checkin’ fur those pesky intruders that scare her. You know, the last thing we’d want is fur mommy to get scared with our brekky plates. Now that wouldn’t be purretty. Anyways…(Suddenly, the lawn crew’s back, right outside the door and a rock hits the window, and then another and another; till Dezi runs off back down the hall. Raena sits and looks bewildered at first and then runs to the hall and into Dezi)
Oh, hey sissy, wha’ch’a doin’? (Raena stops and rubs her eyes)
Me heard mommy on the fone yesfurday Raena. Seems you’re goin’ to the V E T tomorrow. Ya’ better remind her to put the camera in her purrse tonight, or she’ll furget it tomorrow. Altho’ she might oughtta check the battery furst.
That’s okay sissy. I’s sure hope they can do somethin’ to help mine’s eyes. I’s know mommy doesn’t want me to be on antibiotics and steroids fur a long time, and quite furankly, I’s don’t like havin’ those drops put in mine’s eyes; but, they do seem to help clear everythin’ up. I’s know mommy had wanted to take me to a new V E T. But she says, we can charge mine’s visit with the old one, and we just don’t have any green papers right now. She said mine’s eyes just can’t wait any longer, she just hates to see me hurtin’. We’re so blest to have a mommy that loves us so much. As fur the camera, why can’t you help me remind her. Ya’ know, the more naggin’ the better. MOL
Sure ‘nuff Raena. Me sure hopes they can help ya’. Maybe ya’ll can go back to the store and get me a birthday surpurrise.
What ifin mommy already got you one, sissy? We’ve got a big box in the hallway to review that mommy says is gonna be your birthday surpurrise. Seems that should be enuff. (Hearing muffled talking outside Raena runs to the perch to look outside) Hey sissy, do you think we have a new neighbor already?
Me has no idea Raena. It was crazy. The day the new old neighbors moved out and turned in their keys, some lady moved a bed in there and hasn’t left since. She also hasn’t moved anythin’ else in. Can you ‘magine livin’ there with just a bed? And what’s she eatin’? And wearin’ fur that matter? Strange, me tells ya’, it’s just strange.
Yeah sissy, it’s fur sure strange. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens. Maybe she moved here from somwhere far away and her stuffs comin’ in one of those big trucks or somethin’. Anyways, let’s go finish eatin’ and play. I’s’ll be there after I’s ask everypawdy to purray fur me and mommy and our trip to the V E T tomorrow.
And your eyes Raena, don’t furget your eyes.
Fanky fanks sissy.

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We got word this meownin’ from the last of our furiends in the path of those terrible hurricanes; that all are safe. What a relief!!! Seems there’s been some damage to purr-opurrty, but no damage to the peeps or anipals.
Ah Kittens!!! It’s the lawn crew. Better go check UTB fur intruders.
(Dezi meows from down the hall because she heard the lawn crew and went to check fur intruders UTB <under the bed>) Me was so happy to hear that our furiends were safe Raena. We are so blest to have so many wonderful purrayin’ furiends.
We sure are sissy. There’s gonna be a lot of clean up, repairs and relocatin’, but at least our furiends are still together and safe. So many peeps and anipals got separated in these storms. We’re purrayin’ really hard that everypawdy is reunited soon.
(Still meowing from UTB) That we are Raena, that we are. What were you and mommy doin’ with the hood up on the car yesfurday?
Oh sissy, mommy’s so furustrated. We had to go to the store to get some more taters fur mommy and some more of that sticky stuffs to keep her teethies in her mouth. When we got home, we heard this bubblin’ and gurglin’ sound and then suddenly without any warnin’, the car started steamin’. ‘Pawrently water and somethin’ called coolant splattered everywhere and dumped out a puddle under the car. Mommy popped open the hood to take a look. (Raena rolls her eyes and snickers) Like she actually knew what she was lookin’ at. MOL Mommy could see that most everything was wet. She shook her head and started cryin’. She told me how tired she was as she strolled me back to the house. I’s not sure mommy has much fight left in her sissy. We just can’t ever seem to get ahead of our own little catastrophes. I’s say, shame on that stinky car fur breakin’ again.
(Dezi meows from the bedroom door as the lawn crew has moved to the other side of the purr-opurrty and quieted a bit) Well Raena, there is one up side to the car breakin’. Mommy had to cancel your VET ‘pointment and her teeth relinin’ ‘pointment. Without a car, she can’t very well get to Ardmore.
Well sissy, while I’s might not wanna go to the VET, I’s do know that it’s necessary sometimes. And fur sure, mommy needs to be able to get to the dentist office. We need to purray fur mommy and the car. I’s don’t know what mommy’s gonna do ‘bout the car, but she’s gotta figger out a way to have it checked out so we can at least know what it would cost to fix it. With the wheelchair broke and now the car too, we’re purretty much house bound. I’s purretty sure mommy’s depression is at an all time high.
(Dezi meows from behind mommy’s sitting chair as the lawn crew is quiet and must be on a break) Me agrees Raena. Me just doesn’t unnerstand why things happen the way they do?. (Hearing the lawn crew start up again, Dezi runs back UTB and meows over her shoulder) Why don’t you give mommy some extra luvvin’ Raena. Me will take over when the lawn crew leaves.
Ain’t nuffin’ better than mommy luvvin’.
I’s will sissy. But, you really need to get a grip. The lawn crew can’t get to you. You know mommy would never let anypawdy or anythin’ hurt you. I’s gonna go get some mommy luvvin’ now. When you decide to come out from UTB, maybe we can play.

(Dezi sits quietly eating her breakfast, while Raena gazes intently out the front door from her perch. Seeing something in the distance, Raena sits up with her ears pointed towards the front at alert. Suddenly, Dezi hears the loud familiar roar of the lawn crew’s terrible and possible cat eating machines.)
Run fur your life Raena!!! They’re here!!!
(Dezi meows as she runs down the hall leaving a half eaten bite on the floor)
(Raena runs after Dezi in a haze and meows)
What?! Why?! Who?! Where?!
(Raena stops at the end of the hallway at the bedroom door and looks back towards the living room and now closed front door. Raena hears a familiar voice piercing through the commotion of all the loud machines.)
Dezi!!! Raena!!! Girls, come eat your breakfast. I won’t let those stupid lawn men get ya’ll. You’ve got nothin’ to fear. Come on girls, I’ve closed the door. It’s safe. Come and eat your brekky.
(Raena appears first looking puzzled at why the front door is closed. None the less, she moseys over and takes a few bites of her breakfast and rubs against mommy’s legs to get a little loving. Dezi emerges from the bedroom with her fur all in a ruff and paces back and forth in front of her plate and Raena’s.)
It’s okay Dezi, You’re safe. I love you darlin’. Just eat your breakfast and ignore those silly men out there in the rain.
(Dezi takes a few bites and suddenly hears the sound of the leaf blower on the front porch trying to blow the wet leaves around)
Run fur your life!!!
(Dezi meows as she runs down the hallway again. Again, Raena runs after her, and again, she stops at the end of the hallway at the bedroom door and then looks back at mommy)
Sissy, all this runnin’ is makin’ mine’s tummy rumble. I’s don’t think mommy’s gonna be very happy ifin I’s chuck mine’s brekky all over the floor. Why are we runnin’ anyways? Those silly men can’t get past mommy. You know how mommy is, she barely cracks the door open when those kind’a peeps come knockin’. And so far, I’s not heard any thunder boomers. So the way I’s see it, is, it’s all good and we should just go and eat. C’mon, let’s go eat.
(Raena takes a few steps toward the living room and looks back)
Sissy? Are you in there? Are you lissenin’ to me?
(Dezi meows from UTB <under the bed>)
Me heard ya’ Raena. You’s go ahead and eat ifin ya’ want. Me’s gonna stay here a little longer. Me thinks me sees somethin’ that requires some more investigatin’.
(Raena meows excitedly)
What do ya’ see sissy? Is it another one of those flyin’ yucky bugs like I’s found the other day?
(Raena runs UTB where Dezi is)
(Dezi hisses so loudly mommy can hear it in the living room over all the noisy lawn crew machines and the girls hear a voice from the living room)
Girls, play nice!!!
Sorry mommy. No Raena, me didn’t find a moth. Why are you still here anyways? Me thought you were gonna go eat your brekky?.
I’s was sissy, but you said you found somethin’ and I’s thought you might need mine’s help.
Well, me doesn’t. Me’s been doin’ this a lot longer than you have, so me’s sure me can investigate it all by meself.
Well, okay sissy. But ifin It, whatever It is, gets ya’, don’t say I’s didn’t try to help. I’s gonna go eat mine’s brekky now. I’s don’t hear those noisy machines anymore anyhow.
(Raena heads back to the living room to eat her breakfast, and Dezi moves to the bedroom door and lays down looking toward the closed door. Raena meows loudly from the living room)
Hey Dezi, the lawn crew’s fur sure gone. Mommy says she’s fixin’ to open the door so you can see.
(Raena starts her head bob and bite over her plate)
(Mommy crawls to the door to open it and sees Dezi at the edge of the bedroom and calls to her)
C’mon Dezi, it’s okay. They’re gone now, so come eat your brekky.
Me’s comin’ mommy. Me was just keepin’ you safe from the UTB monster. Do you need some help crawlin’ back to the sittin’ lift chair?
Thank you sweety. I really appreciate you keepin’ me and your sisfur safe. Now you come eat brekky and let me keep you safe darlin’, okay?. I can get to my chair by myself, you just eat.
(Dezi eats a few bites and then heads up the cat tree for a short morning nap)
What a meownin’ we’ve had. Me will never unnerstand those stupid lawn peeps tryin’ to mow durin’ the storms. They sure do make a mess. Fank the cats our little birdies already flew off from their nest on our porch. Me thinks we deserve some treats today.
Treats? Did somepawdy say Treats? I’s want some Treats. How ‘bout our grass? Is that grass Valentine sent us ready yet? Did we get any Treats in that Chewy box the other day?
Yep Raena, mommy said our grass is almost ready. Me can’t wait to munch down on a few blades of that tasty green grass. And we did get treats to review this month. Let’s go make “The Face”, so mommy will give us some. And then me’s gonna take another nap. But befur me furgets, we have a winner fur the Animal Hearted Gift Card. A meowsy big ConCats to uncle Pete over at Timmy Tomcat’s bloggy.

Meowllo everypawdy, you are not gonna believe what happened last week. Me’s loungin’ ‘round just tremblin’ under da chair enjoyin’ da rains and thunder and mommy brings in a postcard and says it’s fur me. Well let me tell ya’, me luvs to get mail, so me couldn’t wait fur mommy to read it to me. Da front had these cutesy fotos of kitties and doggies, so me could only ‘magine good things. Maybe me had won a lifetime supply of noms. Or better yet, a lifetime supply of freeze dried chicken breast treats. Those chunks of white meat chicken are so yummy, me can taste ‘em now. (looks off dreamily and licks lips) Anyways, me ask mommy to read it to me.
Big mistake furiends. Ifin ya’ get a postcard in da mail with cutesy kitties and doggies on it…throw it out, tear it up, rip it to shreds, eat it, just do somethin’ with it befur da peeps get a chance to see it. It’s da postcard from hell. Dat stinky ‘ole VET had da nerve to send me a card tellin’ me to tell mommy to call them up and make a ‘pointment fur me to get poked and purrodded. Can you believe dat? Me’s respawnse to dat postcard? Sure thing doctor C me will get right on dat. Me can’t wait to be manhandled and jabbed. Me’s gonna tell mommy to make dat call ASAP. Yeah, right. What’s up with them? Do they think me actually likes them? Do me’s hisses and growls not tell them clear ‘nuff dat me doesn’t enjoy me’s time there? Me told mommy dat she could just throw dat out and ignore it all together.
But alas, mommy had da nerve to call over to da VETs office and schedule an appointment. Me has to find some place to hide or else me will be getting’ assaulted Fursday meownin’. Dat’s right, me’s ‘pointment is Fursday at 11 o’clock. Me may just have to give da VET da ‘ole whacky paw so he’ll get da message and not be sendin’ anymore of those cutesy postcards. Me hopes your day goes better than me’s day. As you’ve purrobably figgered out by now, we’re way behind on our visitin’. Just wait, you’ll find out ‘zactly why later this week. And hopefully things will get back to normal soon. Seems mommy’s monthly doctor’s ‘pointment is Wednesday, and of course there’s all this lease re-certification stuffs mommy has to get together, so we’s plannin’ a big ketch up with you all this weekend and when we can durin’ da week. Seems June is a really busy month fur us. Me’s gonna wrap it up now, da lawn crew just showed up. Kittens!!! And it’s only miserable Monday. So much fur me’s nappin’ and strollin’ plans. Mommy, ifin ya’ need me, me will be UTB.
Remember, be suspicious of all cutesy animal postcards addressed to us furries. It’s most likely da postcard from hell.
Till da next time…………………………………….Be Blest!!!
