Chatting Cats: Life Is A Blessing

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. It’s been really crazy ‘round here this week. Well, at least fur mommy. I’s been takin’ a lot of naps. I’s get tired watchin’ mommy run ‘round like a chicken with her head cut off. 

 

 Dezi and Raena lay on floor watching each other

 

 

 

          RaenaBelle!!! That’s not very nice. 

 

Maybe not sissy, but you know it’s the truth. We’ve not been able to visit our furiends and meow at ‘em.  Nor have we gotten to go out and look at all the Christmas lights. And we fur sure haven’t even got to write our letters to that Santa Paws guy yet. I’s thinkin’ mommy’s too busy. We need to teach her how to relax.

          You may be right Raena, but me doesn’t think anypawdy could teach mommy to relax. Ya’ know a doctor told her once that she was missin’ the relax gene. Anyways, mommy said we could write our letters next week and there’d be purrlenty of time. We’ve got to get our Christmas cards out this weekend. And, since we can’t go to the nursin’ home this year, we’re thinkin’ ‘bout makin’ a carolin’ video fur our bloggy. Ifin mommy can figger it all out that is.

 

I’s have faith she will, sissy. After all, isn’t that what this season’s all ‘bout…Faith? 

 

          Partly Raena. But that’s good enuff. Me will have faith with ya’. Me knows we’ve got some great reviews comin’ up fur everypawdy. We’re gonna even let mommy tell peeps ‘bout our new spaceship next week. 

 

 Raena sits atop the Liberty Cat tree looking curious

 

 

 

Spaceship! What spaceship? 

 

          Ya’ know, PB, our new pawtty box. 

 

Oh Cool. I’s luvs PB, don’t you?  

 

 The Blessing Train

 

 

 

          Save it fur the review Raena. In the meantime, we’ve got another Blessin’ fur the Blessing Train and our 12 Days of Blessings. Altho’ it’s turned cold and mostly dismal outside, the sun still shines down upon us. We’ve been given another day to live and spread joy. Every breath we take is the Blessing of life. One fur which we are most grateful. Havin’ such scary and unsure beginnings, we have been Blest with a most wonderful life.

You’re so right sissy. Life’s not always purrfect, and we don’t always have everythin’ we want. But, we have everythin’ we need. We hope you all will jump on the Blessing Train with us and share your Blessings this holiday season. We purromiss to be ‘round to visit as soon as we can. Mommy’s purromissed to get unbusy and help us soon.

 

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

Chatting Cats: The World Stopped Spinning So We’re Back

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Sissy, c’mon, the world’s stopped spinnin’ and we can load our site again.

 

 Dezi sits pretty in the hall behind my chair

 

 

 

          Are you sure? Me’s so tired of waitin’ fur the pages to load. Mommy says it’s cuz we live so far out and the innernet peeps haven’t upgraded the wirin’ ‘round here in like, furEVER. 

 

Raena sits pretty and poses on top of the Litter Robot boxThis box is huge, mommy.

 

 

I’s sure sissy. I’s already checked. What did you think ‘bout that big box we got delivered yesfurday?  

 

 Dezi lays on cat tree

 

 

          The box is great Raena. It’s what was in the box that me’s not so sure ‘bout. Mommy says we have to use it cuz we’re s’posed to write a review. 

 

 Raena lays on litter robot box

 

 

 

Yeah sissy, but I’s think it’s ‘bout more than just writin’ a review. Mommy seems really x’cited ‘bout it and says it’s gonna be a big help to her. Anyways, I’s just glad we can get back on the catputer. We’ve not been able to visit our furiends fur days. ‘Course, that did give mommy some time to clean the house. You know we’re havin’ a play date soon and we wanna make a good impurr-sion.

 

 Dezi sits with back to camera

Hmmmmm let’s see, where are we gonna put that thing?

 

 

 

          Yep Raena, me can’t wait. It’s gonna be so much fun. We haven’t had a play date in so long. By the way, did you hear mommy on the fone last night with Ms. A, Nub’s mommy? 

 

 Nubs the black and white manx cat looks at the camera

Bye Nubs. RIP

 

 

 

I’s did sissy. It’s so sad. We hadn’t been over to see him in a couple of weeks. Mommy had said we were gonna take him some special treats this week and then this happens. Ya’ know, Ms. A ended up with Nubs after his person died and nopawdy wanted him. We just can’t ‘magine what it must have been like fur him. Mommy says that’s why it’s so ‘purrtant to make plans fur us fur babies in the event we happen to outlive our peeps. Unfurtunately fur Nubs, he went to heaven on Monday. Ms. A had been at her daughters house, and when she got home, Nubs was layin’ in the kitchen almost dead. He died in Ms. A’s arms on the way to the V-E-T. 

 

          It’s really sad, Raena. but, at least he knew luv befur he left this world. 

 

He also knew the joy of a Yeowww nip nanner since we shared one with him. 

 

 Dezi plays with her new birthday nip nana

 

 

 

 

 

          Then ya’ know he was a happy kitty. Anyways, ‘nuff sad stuffs. Ya’ know, Christmas is comin’ up really soon. Me can’t wait fur mommy to put up our tree so we can watch all the lights. You know, you’re gonna have to leave the decorations alone. The tree baubles aren’t toys.

 

Raena plays with the Yeowww nip nana

 

 

Me?!!! What ‘bout you, sissy? I’s seem to ‘member it was you that mommy had to get on to last year.

 

          That’s not true and you know it. Me thought you didn’t ‘member anythin’ ‘bout your furst Christmas?

 

 Raena plays in the gift bag paper

 

 

 

How could I’s pawssubly furget somethin’ like Christmas, sissy? We got lots of purresents from our Angel furiends. And, we got to go visit and sing carols to the peeps in what mommy called an old folks home. I’s can’t wait to do that again. We are gonna do it again, aren’t we sissy? 

 

 Dezi getting love while laying in mommy's lap

 

 

 

          Mommy says some of the rules have changed. But, she’s gonna call and ask ifin we can come again this year. Me just luvs all the lights and decorations this time of year brings ‘bout. And peeps seem to act a little nicer too.

 

 Raena sits on bed beside chair, profile

 

 

 

That’s nice sissy. I’s wish peeps would be nicer all the time. Maybe our world wouldn’t be so full of hate.  Ya’ know, we better get busy visitin’ our furiends, and helpin’ mommy clean up fur our play date. I’s’ll race ya’ to the new box.

 

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

Blest Sunday: Bouncy Backs, Blowing Leaves & Gratitude

Raena, where are you? It’s time to write our Blest Sunday posty.

 

 Raena sits in amazon box

 

 

          I’s playin’ sissy. Did you see me the other day when I’s played bouncy on mommy’s back?

 

 Dezi lays on cat tree shelf looking inside, while Raena lays atop the cat tree, looking out.

 

 

Yeah Raena, me saw it. Me doesn’t think mommy thought it was very much fun tho’. Whatever made you do that in the furst place? 

 

 Raena lays in house on liberty cat tree

 

 

          Well sissy, ya’ know when mommy sat down on the human potty, she just happened to see somethin’ scurry across the floor. It was the teeniest biggest ginormous hairy spider ever. Let me tell ya’, that sucker was flat movin’ too. Without meowin’ all of mommy’s business, let’s just say, she couldn’t zactly get up and stomp on that teeny ginormous intruder. So, mommy bent over, took off her shoe and stretched her arm out to whack it. I’s quickly assessed the ‘sitch and decided that mommy’s back looked like too much fun not to take advantage of. Besides, mommy already had the spider, and it wasn’t like she was gonna let me play with it anyways. And, bent over and stretched out like that, made her muscles ripple and bounce. So, I’s jumped on mommy’s back and held on fur dear life. What a ride!!! Well till mommy let out a scream that is. I’s don’t know why she hollered like that. I’s almost lost mine’s balance till I’s dug into her neck. Mommy hollered at me and told me the furee ride was over and to get down. Oh well, She quit movin’ ‘round so it wasn’t really fun anymore.

 

 Dezi and Raena lay together on the floor

 

 

Me’s not sure mommy ever thought your claws diggin’ into her back was fun Raena. Me’s guessin’ that’s the reason we got a claw clippin’ last night. 

 

          Ya’ reckon, sissy? I’s hate claw clippin’ time. I’s don’t know why mommy can’t just let our claws grow like they wanna?.

 

Well Raena, me doesn’t like claw clippin’ either, but, mommy says clippin’ is necessary to keep ‘em from growin’ into our paw pads or ketchin’ on everythin’. And me can tell ya’ ketchin’ your claws on the cawrpet ain’t no fun at all. Me guesses mommy’s right. Sometimes ya’ have to do things you don’t like fur your own good. Just don’t let her know me said that. She’d ‘spect me to stop fightin’ at claw clippin’ time. 

 

 Leaf Blower

 

Leaves being blown from porch

Leaves being blow off porch by mommy A

 

 

 

          That may be true sissy, but I’s still don’t like it. Anyways, did you see what happened the day after mommy blew all the leaves off the purrch? 

 

Clean porch after blowing all leaves off

Almost all the leaves are gone after mommy’s leaf blowing adventure

Oh Raena, mommy was so furustrated. There’ she’d dragged the leaf blower out and spent all that time blowin’ leaves everywhere but our purrch. And, the next meownin’, Mr. Whirrly Wind came thru and blew twice as many as befur back onto the purrch.

 

 

Leaves piled up on porch

The leaves are back

 

 

          Yep sissy, the mailman came to the door to drop off a package; and when mommy opened the door, leaves blew in all over the place. It was so windy, mommy couldn’t even get the leaves back outside. I’s will say, I’s just luvs the leaf blower. Mommy wields that thing better than any ole Mother Nature wind storm. 

 

Gift of Primal Freeze Dried Chicken, Rabbit and Duck sent by Vonda

 

 

Yeah Raena, mommy is getting’ better at it. You should’a seen her the furst few times. Me thinks she made more of a mess than we had befur. Least now, she can get ‘er done without bein’ covered in dirt and mud when she finishes. 

 

 Dezi and Raena check out the Primal Freeze Dried cat food sent by Vonda

 

 

          What did you think of the surpurrise we got sissy? 

 

Dezi sniffs the bag of Primal freeze dried rabbit sent by VondaMmmmmmmmmmm Rabbit, me’s favorite.

 

 

The one from awnty Vonda? Me luvved it. We can never have too many bags of noms, that’s fur sure. She was so sweet to send ‘em to us. Hopefully, it means we won’t ever run outta food again. She even sent an extra bag of the Primal Duck fur me’s Gotchaday. Fank you sooooooooooooooo much awnty Vonda. We really purreciate ya’ and the noms.

 

 Raena sniffs the Primal Freeze dried Rabbit food while Dezi looks on, sent by Vonda

Mmmmmmmmmmmm I’s smell Rabbit.

 

 

 

          Sure ‘nuff sissy. Fanky fank ya’ awnty Vonda. I’s saw a giant bag of our favorite, Primal freeze dried Rabbit. We’re also very fanky fankful to awnty Donna. She sent mommy green papers to register our car. I’s don’t know why we have to register it, and mommy gets so angry that the State charges so much, but, we’re grateful to be legal again fur another year.

 

 Dezi's face close up, selfie

 

 

Yeah Raena, mommy says you’d think we’d have the bestest roads in da U.S. with what they charge. But alas, Oklahoma roads are pawful. Anyways, we are so very blest to have furiends who luv us and help us out when they can. We are blest to have a luvvin’ mommy, a roof over our heads, a bed to sleep in and toys galore. We are blest to be a pawrt of a community of cat luvvers who care ‘bout each other and suppurrt each other. We are so grateful fur all our furiends. We can’t ‘magine a life without all of you. We are Blest!!! And as always, we wanna remind you to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. 

 

Raena lays on cat tree looking towards the chair

 

 

          We also wanna link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. We do luvs posin’ fur fotos. (Raena sees something outside and runs to the cat tree to look further) Did you see that sissy? C’mon, let’s go see what it is.

Chatting Cats: Time To Blow The Leaves

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. (Raena zooms thru the house) Sissy!!! Look’it, the sun’s shinin’!!! Hurry, ya’ don’t wanna miss it!!! 

 

 Dezi walks down hall

 

 

 

          (Dezi slowly saunters toward the living room) RaenaBelle, calm down. It’s not like you’ve never seen sunshine befur. 

 

 Raena lays in liberty cat tree cubby

 

 

 

But sissy, it’s been gone furever!!! When ole man Winter got here, Mr. Sunshine left. I’s thought he went and packed his bags like Ms. Fall. 

 

 Dezi and Raena look out the door and window from their perch on the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          Raena, you know Sunshine, Fall and Winter are seasons, right? They don’t really have bags to pack. That’s just somethin’ mommy says to make fun fur us. 

 

(Raena looks around as if thinking about what Dezi just said) Hmmmm Well sissy, bags or no bags, Mr. Sunshine’s here today, and mommy says he’s gonna be gone again tomorrow. 

 

 

 Dezi stands in middle of floor licking lips

 

 

 

          Okay Raena, whatever. Mommy’s gonna have to get the leaf blower out befur we can go fur any strolls. Have you seen all the leaves on our purrch? 

 

Yeah sissy, I’s did. I’s don’t like those big ole trees any more than mommy does. All Summer they drop dead leaves and harbor those nasty web worms. And, ifin that wasn’t bad enuff, now they’re droppin’ all their leaves right on our purrch. Ya’ know some of our furiends post fotos of all these purretty rainbow colored leaves; but none of our leaves look like that. They’re all brown and holey from the worms. Ole man Winter just makes everythin’ look yucky. And did you feel that bump on your last stroll? Mommy said that was cuz of a crack in the pavement from tree roots.

 

          Yeah Raena, those trees do cause a lot of purroblems. But, we can’t do anythin’ ‘bout ‘em, so we just need to help mommy with the leaf blower.

 

 Dezi looks out window from cat tree while Raena lays sleeping atop the tree

 

 

 

Am I’s gonna like the leaf blower sissy? 

 

 

          Well Raena, it’s a lot louder than the carpet monster, but let me meow ya’, mommy gets really crazy with it. Oh The stories me could meow. MOL 

 

Really sissy? Maybe you could meow a few durin’ our upcomin’ playdate?. 

 

 Dezi lays on the chair arm and gets loving from mommy

 

 

 

          Maybe Raena. Me can’t wait to see who our guests are gonna be. Are you and mommy plannin’ a surpurrise fur me’s Gotchaday next week? You know it’s the day befur Fanksgivin’. Me hasn’t heard ya’ll meow or talk ‘bout it at all. Surely mommy didn’t furget?. 

 

Oh purrlease, sissy. You don’t think mommy could furget your Gotchaday, do you? Mommy’s always sayin’ how blest she is to have you choose her to be your mommy. But, I’s don’t know ifin mommy’s plannin’ anythin’ fur your Gotchaday. Ya’ know, money’s been real tight lately. I’s do know she’ll give ya’ lots of extra special luvvin’. And what more could a kitty ask fur?

 

          Me just knew she would be the purrfect mommy, Raena. Didn’t you feel it too? 

 

 Raena lays in mommy's lap and gets loving

 

 

 

Yep sissy, I’s sure did. We sure are blest kitties. I’s not only got a pawsum mommy, but I’s also got you. Even tho’ you can sometimes be grumpy, I’s know you luvs me too. Well, guess we better go help mommy with the leaf blower ifin we plan on getting’ in a stroll today.

 

 Dezi and Raena atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          There’s one more thing me wanted to meow ‘bout Raena. Lately we’ve had several peeps ask ‘bout our fone service. Ya’ know, we use the magic jack. Mommy says peeps wanted to know what we pay fur service, how we like it and ifin it has to be connected to a catputer that be turned on all the time. Furst, we pay fur service once a year. Our payment fur the next year is due this month, and be $39.00 plus $3.00 fur 911 service. That 911 fee was added a couple years ago when peeps started droppin’ their land lines and usin’ cell fones more offen. Secondly, it doesn’t have to be connected to a catputer at all. It plugs into a wall outlet and your innerent modem. And thirdly, we really can‘t complain ‘bout the service. We can call all of the US and Canada fur furee. There’s no long distance charges or hidden fees and taxes. The only time we don’t have service is when the ‘lectricity’s out or the innernets be down. And well, what with cordless fones bein’ used fur those who have land lines, they don’t have service durin’ power outages either. So, we hope that helps those of you who were wonderin’. 

 

Fanky fanks sissy. C’mon, let’s go play in the closet while mommy gets the leaf blower. Since the closet’s off limits, who knows what we might find in there. MOL 

 

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

Chatting Cats: Where Did All This Cold Come From

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s can’t believe the week we’re havin’. And OMC It turned cold, cold, cold here over night.

 

Dezi and Raena sit on shower benches in bathroom

          Raena, ya’ need to s’plain what happened on Monday. You know, with our Service Cat Monday posty?. 

 

 Raena lays on a box

 

 

 

What’s that sissy? Why me? Ya’ make it sound like it was mine’s fault. I’s didn’t do anythin’ wrong. I’s didn’t make the innernets be sketchy, or the storms to roll thru, or all the letters and calls that came fur mommy with upsettin’ mews. And I’s fur sure didn’t schedule mommy’s doctors ‘pointment to be right in the middle of it all. 

 

 Dezi stretches on the scratching post

 

 

 

          Me never meowed it was your fault Raena, me just meant that you should let everypawdy know that we’re okay and sorry we missed Service Cat Monday. But, never fear, we’ll be back on schedule next week. Well, lessen the innernet’s ghosties appear again.  

 

Oh, okay sissy. Sorry, I’s just thought… 

 

          That’s what ya’ get fur thinkin’. MOL 

 

Sissy!!! I’s gonna tell mommy that you’re bein’ mean to me.

 

          Oh purrrrrrrlease. It’s not bein’ mean ifin it’s the truth. Anyways……

 

 Raena lays beside scratcher

 

 

 

(Raena looks around a bit confused) Somehow, I’s still think that’s not nice. But fur now, I’s’ll let it go. I’s gotta tell ya’ sissy, I’s not really likin’ all this cold weather we’re havin’. Mr. Sunshine hasn’t been out fur days. I’s thought it was Fall? Ya’ know cooler days fur strollin’? But Nooooooo, we went from Summer to Winter overnight. Altho’, I’s do like the appearance of the ‘lectric blanky. Snugglin’ with mommy the last couple of nights has been really toasty. Well, once you quit meowmblin’ that is. What’s up with that anyways.

 

 Dezi looks down from atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          What? You kept jumpin’ on me. Mommy told you it was late and time to go to bed. You know play time’s over when mommy takes us to bed. We’ve done the same thing every night since you came to live here. 

 

Maybe I’s wasn’t ready to go to bed, sissy. Maybe, I’s wasn’t sleepy yet. Maybe the colds have given me more energy. Maybe, you just looked to temptin’ not to jump on.

 

          Well, temptin’ or not, sleepy or not, you know the rules. You know mommy can’t sleep without us layin’ beside her. And besides, that ‘lectric blanky sure makes fur nice cuddlin’. As fur all that energy, me’s kind’a feelin’ it too. But me did hope fur a few more days of strollin’ weather befur it got so cold.

 

 Raena lays on the back of the chair

 

 

 

I’s purromiss I’s’ll do better tonight sissy. Meowin’ of sleepin’ and ‘lectric blankies, I’s thinkin’ a little nap just might be what the doctor ordered as mommy would say.

 

          That does sound like a good idea Raena. (Dezi sees the manager coming up the walk) HiSSSssssssss  Me’s thinkin’ we oughtta go nap right now Raena. Looks like more bad mews is on it’s way to the door now. 

 

Dezi lays in the chair with Raena on the back

I’s right behind ya’ sissy. Weather purrmittin’, we’ll be ’round to visit as soon as we can. I’s just wanna remind everypawdy there’s still time to get in on their chance fur that Chewy Goody box we’re givin’ away. Just click here.

 

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