Chatting Cats: Smarty Pants Phones, Dumb Alarms & Bird TV

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. (Raena looks around. Seeing something flutter by the door she runs to the small perch to look out while meowing) Well sissy, we’ve furinally joined this century and got our very own smarty pants fone. Mommy said since it was gonna cost the same as what she pays fur a dumb fone we might as well get a smart one.

          Was there any ketches Raena? You know humans luv to trick ya’ with things that sound too good to be true.

 

You’re right ‘bout that sissy. Seems there was one ketch, she had to pay some kind’a activation fee. The fone was furee and the service is the same as always, but they did want money to turn the thing on. Now ifin mommy can only learn to use it.

          (Something flutters by the front door catching Dezi and Raena’s attention) What was that? Did you see that Raena? Mommy, there’s somethin’ on that silly alarm outside. (Dezi and Raena chatter wildly until mommy A gets up and looks outside. Seeing a bird’s nest on the alarm box on the wall outside the front door, mommy tells the girls that they were seeing the mommy bird taking care of her babies.) Really mommy? Do ya’ reckon it’s the same birdy from last year? 

 

     I don’t know sweety, maybe.

I’s wanna see the baby birds mommy. Will you hold me up there so I’s can see ‘em? 

 

     No Raena, I don’t think the momma bird would be too happy about that. You don’t want to scare her off so she leaves her babies alone, do you? 

 

No, I’s guess not mommy. Ya’ know, our furiends might be wonderin’ just what kind of alarm box we’ve got out there. Since these ‘pawrtments are fur the disabled and elderly, they put a red light and a really noisy alarm on the wall right by the door. It’s s’posed to be fur emergencies. There’s a string in the bathroom and one in the bedroom that cause the alarm to go off when they’re pulled. The alarm isn’t actually connected to any kind’a emergency help, so all it does is go off, give everypawdy a migraine and start the busy bodies to gossipin’.

          Yep Raena, one of the furst Service Cat lessons we learn is not to play with the strings. Mommy says she doesn’t want all the nosy neighbors comin’ in our house. It’s not like any of them could actually help mommy. Befur you were born peeps alarms used to go off all the time. They’d be cleanin’ their pawrtments and pull the chain by accident. Mommy says that’s why they’re not attached to any emergency system. Ifin they were, the pawlice, fire depawrtment and ambulance would be here all the time fur false alarms. 

 

Really sissy? I’s can only ‘member hearin’ one of those alarms since I’s been here. It fur sure was loud and annoyin’. I’s bet it would really scare that poor birdy up there. 

 

 Dezi lays atop the cat tree looking out

 

 

 

          You’re purrobably right Raena. Let’s not find out, okay? Who knows, there might be lots more birdies with nests full of babies that we haven’t seen. We used to have a neighbor who put bird houses all over her patio. Once she moved, those birdies had nowhere to go anymore. Me bets they chose our purrch fur their nests cuz they knew we’re nice and won’t try to hurt ‘em or shoo ‘em off. Me can’t wait till the baby birdies start learnin’ to fly. Me ‘members those birdies from last year made quite a raucous when they left the nest. 

 

You’re right ‘bout that, sissy. Fur such tiny creatures, they sure can make a lot of noise.

 

          And they’re messy too Raena. They don’t seem to care where they poop. Ya’ gotta be careful or they just might poop on you. Dirty little critters. It’s no wonder the Trout Towne Tabbies don’t like birdies.  

 

 Raena lays atop Liberty Cat tree and hangs paw over edge

 

 

 

MOL That’s a good one sissy. All I’s can meow is that no birdy better poop on me. Ifin they try, we’ll be havin’ ‘em fur dinner.

 

          Hmmmpht  Now that’s a good one Raena. Like you could actually ketch a birdy. MOL Me ‘members what you did the furst time you saw a rabbit. Our natural prey and you wanted to play with it. 

 

 Raena looks to the woods from the stroller

 

 

 

Oh sissy, he was so cute. Unfurtunately, he wasn’t the least bit innerested in playin’ with me. I’s never could figure out why? Anyways, we better wrap it up; we’ve got one of those inspections tomorrow, so mommy’s gotta do some cleanin’. Let’s go finish brekky and see how we can help. 

 

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

Chatting Cats: Today Is The Day

Hey…HEY IS ANYPAWDY OUT THERE??? It’s Me RaenaBelle!!! (Raena looks around for Dezi and then towards the window as a flash of lightning brightens up the room.) Sissy!!! I’s not sure ifin anypawdy can hear me over all these thunder boomers and storms. Sissy? Sissy, where are you? 

 

 Raena chats from the boxbed with mouth open

 

 

 

          Leave me alone Raena. Me’s checkin’ unner the bed fur intruders. Don’t you have somethin’ you’re s’posed to be gettin’ ready fur? 

 

 Raena bathes while laying on the floor

 

 

 

I’s do sissy. The day’s furinally here. we’re goin’ to town to get mommy’s purrmanent dentures. Somepawdy asked on facebook what we meant, so I’s purrobably oughtta x’plain a bit. By purrmanent, we mean the final denture plate that’ll take the place of these temps she’s been wearin’ fur 6 months. There’s no screws in mommy’s mouth and she’ll still take her teethies out to brush ‘em and all. So technically, they’re not purrmanent. ‘Course nuffin’ with a 6 month warranty is purrmanent, right? But, they’ll be purrmanent fur mommy cuz there’s no way we’d be able to affurd another pair, so they’re just gonna have to last.

 

          (Meowing from UTB) Mommy’ll take good care of ‘em Raena. Don’t you worry ‘bout that. Are you ready fur your ‘pointment?

 

Raena wipes her eyes

 

 

 

Mine’s ‘pointment? (Raena wipes at her eyes) I’s don’t have any ‘pointments. I’s just goin’ with mommy cuz she might need me. 

 

          Oh, yeah. Mmmhuh, sure. Nope, no ‘pointments fur RaenaBelle. 

 

What ‘pointment did you think I’s had sissy?

 

 Dezi lays in cat bed and looks back over her shoulders

 

 

 

          (Mumbling under her breath from under the bed) Nuffin’ Raena. Me was just thinkin’ out loud is all. Ya’ know, ‘bout your eyes. Me knows mommy had wanted to have those looked at, she just needed to pay our balance at the V E T’s down a little so she could affurd to have you checked out.

 

Well, I’s don’t wanna go to the V E T’s office. I’s gonna hope we’re at mommy’s dental place all day so there’s no time to go to the V E T. Besides, don’t you think mommy’s gonna wanna hurry home knowin’ how scared you’ll be here by yourself with all these storms?

 

          How many times does me have to tell ya’ Raena, me’s not scared. Me’s checkin’ fur intruders!!! Anyways, we’ll just ask all our furiends to keep all of us in their purrayers today. Ya’ know, that mommy gets purropurr fittin’ and aesthetically purrleasin’ teethies. And, that ya’ll will be safe out in the storms, ‘specially since mommy didn’t get any sleep last night; and that me will be safe here waitin’ on ya’ll to come home. And, that whatever’s wrong with your eyes will be easily fixed and not cost a lot. It’s gonna kill mommy to not clean your eyes all day. Ya’ know, CK once said your eyes looked pawsum, she didn’t know what we were meowin’ ‘bout. We had to tell her that mommy purrobably cleans those things elebenty billion times a day, and edits out the bad like a blemish. 

 

 Raena bathes while laying on the floor with her tongue out

Hmmmmpht I’s know. Mommy’s constantly wipin’ mine’s eyes. Altho’, it does help me see better when she does. I’s fanky fankful mommy cares enuff to take care of me like that. I’s not sure she’s gonna be noticin’ mine’s eyes much today tho’. She didn’t get much sleep the night befur either cuz of all the storms. So, two days without sleep at her age…we’ll be lucky ifin she doesn’t doze off while waitin’ on her teethies. She says they want her there early in case it takes a few tries to get her teethies right. I’s can’t wait fur when we take fotos and show off her new smile. Altho’ it purrobably won’t be tomorrow. I’s see a long nap and lots of cuddles in our near future. 

 

          (Dezi meows quietly from under the bed while a loud clap of thunder booms over head) Me sure hopes the storm passes soon so me can join the cuddles on the bed ‘stead of unner it.

 

 Raena lays on floor with tongue touching nose

 

 

 

(Raena jumps on the cat tree and waits for mommy to put her harness on and strap her into the stroller. She meowmbles) Guess we won’t be visitin’ our furiends again today. Hmmmmpht We’s better start visitin’ soon or they’ll furget all ‘bout us. 

 

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

How To Find A Bargain On The Internet

Hi everyone, mommy A here today. I’ve been blest to get to try another great non cleaning, human only product. Let me just say before the girls have a conniption, part of this post will apply to them as well. I’ve never been a big shopper. I’m a list gal. I make a list, go to the store, compare prices and only buy what’s on my list. Of course, living in a small town with limited resources and limited shopping choices made that pretty easy. However, when we got the computer, the whole world was now open to us. If you want it, you can find it on the internet. You can even find things you never knew you wanted. But, comparing prices and finding the best deal became a bit harder. I’ve always admired those coupon kings and queens, but I’m not very good at it myself. But, I still want, actually need to save money.

It’s Review Time fur mommy.

 

 

This is a sponsored post. I received the Diamond Microdermabrasion Machine in exchange for my honest opinion. As always, we only review things we use or have tried and feel would be of interest to you, our readers and friends.

I was recently contacted by a representative from a company called Wikibuy. I wasn’t familiar with them, but their concept isn’t new to me, so I decided to give it a try. If you’re not familiar with them either, let me tell you a bit about them. They offer a Chrome extension that finds lower prices including discounts and coupons while you shop at amazon. Or, you can go directly to their site and shop the lowest prices from there. They also automatically check and apply any active coupon codes for items in your cart. That means you can save money or at least know you’re getting the best price on most everything you buy, including all your pet needs (Petco, Pet360, and many more). That brings me to the product I received to introduce you to this great tool.

You’ve probably figured out by now, I’m a little vain, and hate aging. I’m fighting the wrinkles and gray hairs with everything I’ve got. So, when I was given my budget, I knew exactly what I wanted; it’s been on my frivolous list for a very long time. Diamond Microdermabrasion machines usually aren’t cheap, so, I did what I always do when looking for something expensive on a budget…I went to ebay.com. Yes, when we see something that we think we just can’t live without, one of the first places we check is ebay. That doesn’t mean we always get to buy it, but we do check and often add it to our list. And, Wikibuy works with ebay too. So, I found the perfect Microdermabrasion machine, brand new with warranty for $67.50. It arrived within a week and had everything I needed to get started except an instruction booklet. So, I contacted the seller and they responded within an hour and sent me a PDF of the complete instructions. As with anything, there’s good, better and best. The Pro Diamond Microdermabrasion machine I received is definitely top of the line for home use. It works perfectly and came with enough tips and filters for a years use.

I would for sure give it two thumbs up. Looks great, works great, arrived quickly, at a great price and their customer service is awesome. As for Wikibuy, I’m always up for an easy way of saving money and getting the best price. As I said earlier, the internet opens the world to you, and can sometimes be overwhelming. Anything that can make it easier is a good thing. Shopping shouldn’t be a chore, especially when shopping for everyday items. And with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, if you could save a little on the gift you might have enough left to still go out for dinner. Many thanks to Wikibuy and Ebay, I’m definitely enjoying my new Microdermabrasion machine. And the girls are just fine, they didn’t even miss not getting something this time. 

 

          We are at that mommy. We like it when you get to try new things too.

 

Dezi and Raena will be back tomorrow sharing their adventures with you. Thanks for letting me take a minute of your day to introduce you to an easier way to shop and a cheaper way to fight aging. lol 

 

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

 

Love
