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.

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.

 

Raena lays on the back of the chair one week post surgery

 

 

 

          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!!!

Chatting Cats: Bearing The Heat

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. It furinally cooled off a bit yesfurday. It was only 99°F. We won’t meow ‘bout the feels like cuz it was really humid which means it feels hotter than it is. Fanky fankfully, we have air conditionin’ to help keep things comfutable and cool. Not to mention the sink in the bathroom. I’s sometimes like to curl up there and take a nice little cat nap. Do any of you do that? Ya’ know, with the hots bein’ what they are I’s guessin’ lots of peeps and cats would much purr-fur to lay ‘round not doin’ much.

 

Dezi lays on scratcher and looks back at Raena

 

 

 

          Yep Raena, who knew you could be still that long. Me actually took a nice long nap the other day and you didn’t bug me once. Me actually worried a little that you might be sick or somethin’. 

 

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaw Really sissy? You worried ‘bout me? 

 

          Yeah, don’t let it go to your head Raena. Me wasn’t worried enuff to go look fur ya’ or anythin’. Hey, did you see that mommy found our hexbug? 

 

Raena hangs over the edge of the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

Yep sissy, but it’s too hot to run ‘round chasin’ it right now. Maybe when it cools off some more. Ya’ know, I’s never would’a thought I’s would see the day when I’s didn’t wanna go out fur a stroll with mommy. But, sure ‘nuff, when mommy asked me ifin I’s wanted to go to the mailbox with her yesfurday, I’s meowed no. Why would I’s wanna leave the comfurt of the a/c to get all glowy and glistenin’?.

 

          You mean sweaty Raena? Cats don’t sweat. 

 

I’s know sissy. Mommy says us Southern Belles glow.

 

Dezi sleeps on cat scratcher

 

 

 

          Well Raena, Southern Belles may glow, but really, we cats don’t sweat or glow. That’s why we pant when we get hot. Not that it does any good, but we do it any ways. 

 

Raena lays atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

I’s really worry ‘bout all those kitties who live outside sissy. Ya’ know, even when we do get out in the heat, mommy’s pushin’ us ‘round in the stroller. Can you ‘magine how hot the ground must be? And there are lots of kitties out there havin’ to walk ‘round on it and burn their poor pawsies. They can’t stretch out unner the a/c or even curl up in a bathroom sink. It’s just not fair. I’s don’t unnerstand how some peeps can be so cruel as to turn poor kitties out?.

 

          Raena, me doesn’t think anypawdy truly unnerstands those kinds of peeps. But, that’s why it’s so ‘purrtant fur the kind humans to do what they can fur all those kitties that don’t have cushy homes like we do. Ya’ know like purrvidin’ shelter so they can get outta the sun and the heat. And, makin’ sure they have access to furesh cool water. Y, Mommy used to put ice cubes in water bowls fur the stray kitties when we had ‘em. When takin’ care of stray kitties and feral colonies, purrtectin’ ‘em from the heat is just as ‘purrtant as purrtectin’ ‘em from the cold.

 

It sure is sissy. I’s even heard mommy sayin’ ya’ll were gonna be offurn’ up Tips on how to Beat the Summer Heat this Furiday. 

 

Dezi lays sleeping on cat scratcher

 

 

 

          Me heard her say that too Raena. Me hopes she can keep her head outta the freezer long enuff to write our posty and help us visit our furiends. T’ween the heat and mommy’s own purrsonal summers’, she’s been spendin’ a lot of time hangin’ in front of it.

 

Maybe the freezer acts like the bathroom sink fur mommy. She’s just too big to crawl up in there and lay down.

 

          Now that would be funny Raena. Me can see it now. 

 

Raena hangs over the top of the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

Well sissy, what do ya’ say we go take a nap. Maybe by the time we wake up, it’ll be cool enuff fur some zoomies?. 

 

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