Chatting Cats: Raena’s Non Negotiable And A Q & A

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s don’t like it when mommy’s stressed out. Do you know she passed out last night while we were in the middle of typin’ a comment to one of our furiends? Ifin that wasn’t bad enuff, no sooner did she come too, then she fell asleep right there in the sittin’ chair. Yep, mouth open, droolin’, snorin’ and all. She’s s’posed to come to the bed so we can give her a massage and snuggle up next to her. There’s not much room fur snugglin’ in the sittin’ chair. I’s don’t like it, I’s tell ya’, I’s just don’t.

          Raena, me’s not sure mommy was actually droolin’, me’s purretty sure that was me. 

 

Really sissy? Why would you be droolin’? It makes everythin’ all slobbery and wet. The sittin’ chair’s already got limited space and now you go and slobber all over it. Anyways…I’s just want things to get back to normal ‘round here. I’s need mine’s cuddle time with mommy, it’s a non-negotiable. She purromissed when she saved me that we’d always cuddle and I’s don’t want that to change. 

 

          Non-Negotiable Raena? Where’d you come up with that one?

From the teevee sissy. The show we watched the other day was askin’ peeps what non-negotiables they had fur their pawrtners. Mommy said that it meant what things they had to have or wouldn’t put up with. So, cuddlin’ is mine’s non-negotiable. 

 

 

          Well Raena, it also means that ifin you don’t get your non-negotiable, you won’t be stayin’ in that relationship. Are you ready to pack up and move out? 

 

Leave mommy? ‘Course not!!! I’s would never leave mommy, and she purromissed she’d never leave me.

 

Dezi lays on cat tree with mouth open and eyes shut

 

 

 

          Well then, it’s not really a non-negotiable Raena. Maybe befur you go throwin’ ‘round human phrases, you need to know ‘zactly what they mean. Better yet, maybe you should quit watchin’ so much teevee. You’re startin’ to sound like those latch key kids that spend all their time in front of the boob tube or playin’ catputer games ‘stead of enjoyin’ life and the company of others. Ya’ know, we’ve got great nature teevee right out the front door you could watch. 

 

That’s just a bunch of re-runs sissy. The same ole peeps doin’ the same ole things every day. It’s done gone and got too hot fur the birdies to do much other than hang out on the tree branches in the shade. I’s not seen one bunny in like, furever. No ducks or geese, Y, even the woofies are stayin’ inside, so what’s so great ‘bout nature teevee these days?

          Well Raena, all me knows is that all that nonsense on human teevee isn’t good fur us kitties. Anyways, our furiend CK purrposed some innerview questions fur us the other day, so why don’t we take a minute and answer ‘em? 

 

Okay sissy, that sounds like fun.

 

     1. When did something start out badly for you, but in the end it was great?

          Well, me thinks me can answer fur both of us on this one, Raena. Neither of us had a very good start in life. But since we met mommy, it couldn’t get any better.

 

Dezi and Raena eat Primal Freeze dried Cat food

 

 

 

     2. What weird food combinations do you enjoy?

I’s can meow fur both of us on this one sissy. We don’t really eat combo foods. We like rabbit bestest. 

 

     3. What food have you never eaten but would like to try? 

     Me’s got this one Raena. Filet Mignon. Sis Lexi used to meow ‘bout it all the time. She said mommy brought some home once when she had a date and it just melted in her mouth. 

 

A date, sissy? Our mommy went on a date? 

 

          Another time Raena. Let’s get back to the questions. 

 

Dezi eating Bonito flakes

 

 

 

     4. What food is delicious, but a pain to eat? 

Mine’s turn sissy. I’s gotta say those bonito flakes take some getting’ used too. 

 

     5. What’s the most expensive thing you’ve ever broken?

          Me will answer, Raena. After all, you’re the one who broke our furst stroller. 

 

Raena sits pretty on the Liberty cat tree

I’s purrfection purrsonified. MOL

 

 

 

     6. What would a world populated by clones of you be like? 

Hmmmpht Mommy said your big hiney had already broken it sissy. Anyways, a world full of clones of me? I’s an original and there could never be a copy equal to mine’s purrfection. 

 

     7. What smartfone feature would you be excited for a company to implement? 

          Who’s the laff a minute now Raena? Since we can’t actually use a smartfone we’d like to see a way fur kitties to actually get into ‘em. We could take compurrmisin’ fotos of mommy then. Me bets we’d get lots of treats in exchange fur not postin’ ’em. MOL 

 

     8. What’s something people don’t worry about but should?

I’s don’t care anythin’ ‘bout the smartfone sissy. As fur what humans should worry ‘bout, who knows? I’s just a kitty and mommy says kitties shouldn’t worry ‘bout human stuffs.  

 

     9. What was cool when you were young, but isn’t cool now? 

          Y, everythin’ ‘bout me will always be cool. Raena on the other paw…

 

     10. If magic was real, what spell would you cast first?

We don’t purrticipate in spells and such. Bein’ Christians, we don’t believe in deception.

     11. What’s the most comfortable bed or chair you’ve ever been in?

          Me can answer this one fur both of us too, Raena. That’s so easy, mommy’s lap. Mommy’s lap is the most coveted seat in the house.

It sure is sissy. I’s think I’s gonna head there now. Fanky fanks fur the questions CK, we always luv learnin’ more ‘bout our furiends. Ifin you wanna purrticipate, just link back to CK’s bloggy. These kinds of things are always so much fun when lots of bloggers get in on the action.

Chatting Cats: Getting Old’s No Fun At All

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. It’s gonna be one of those days. Mommy’s not yet finished her furst cup of coffee and she’s already yellin’ at her new smarty pants fone. I’s not sure who Okay Google is, but accordin’ to mommy she’s a bossy idiot.

 

Dezi stretches while looking at Raena laying on the heated cat mat

 

 

 

          RaenaBelle!!! Me thinks you’re usin’ the idiot word too much these days. It’s just not nice. 

 

But sissy, that’s what mommy said. She told her she didn’t wanna go that way to the dentist this time, she wanted to go thru Ardmore. And all that Okay Google could say is “hmmmmm I don’t know how to help you with that.” Mommy’s been screamin’ at her to quit redirectin’ the directions to the quickest route. Ya’ know, mommy wants to take a safer route today, but she needs that silly fone fur directions. (Raena shakes her head)

 

Dezi and Raena together

 

 

 

          Well Raena, ya’ know mommy’s eyes aren’t what they used to be and it’s hard fur her to see the writin’ on the maps. Me knows she was lookin’ at the atlas last night and mumblin’ ‘bout the tiny purrint and gettin’ old. 

 

Well sissy, sounds like we need to learn how to read a map so we can give mommy directions. 

 

          Sure Raena, me will put that right up there with make mommy a cup of coffee. We kitties can’t read the map any more than mommy can. Besides, me heard mommy say that she’d just go to Ardmore and then ask the silly smarty pants fone fur directions.

 

Raena lays atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

Sounds like mommy’s outsmarted the smarty pants fone to me, sissy. I’s knew our mommy was smart. Meowin’ of dentists, fanky fankfully, we got our money back from Aspen Dental over the weekend so mommy can pay the new dentist today. I’s so glad we don’t have to deal with those peeps anymore.

 

          Me too Raena. Mommy used to get so stressed befur her ‘pointments that she almost made herself sick. Meowin’ of ‘pointments, did you see the card me got from the V-E-T? They actually wanted me to tell mommy to call them to schedule a ‘pointment fur them to stab and manhandle me. Hmmmpht  Like that’s gonna happen. What self respectin’ kitty in their right mind would willingly tell their human to take them to the V-E-T? Not this one me tells ya’. Nope, no way. 

 

Raena looks over her shoulder while standing on the table at the vet's office

What are you lookin’ at? Don’t you be gettin’ any

ideas ’bout pokin’ me with that.

 

 

 

Well, good luck with that one sissy; I’s think mommy already saw the card. Besides, why would you think you could get outta goin’ when I’s had to go the day befur mine’s Gotchaday?

 

          But Raena, you didn’t get poked and jabbed on your visit. They wanna do all kinds of unmeowable things to me. It’s just not fair, me tells ya’, not fair at all. Every year they think they oughtta jab me with their huge needles. 

 

Raena sits in stroller at the vet's office

I’s feelin’ all better mommy, let’s go home.

 

 

 

Every year sissy? Does that mean I’s gonna have to go back too? They already tried to kill me the other day. I’s know they’re plannin’ and plottin’ mine’s demise. The kitties in the waitin’ room when we left told me so. Their names were Thelma and Louise. I’s told ‘em to run fur their lives when their carrier doors opened. I’s told ‘em not to stop fur the bonito flakes we left on the table. I’s sure hope they got out okay. They reminded me of your pawsum sis Lexi. They were big ol black tabby kitty girls…and I’s do mean big.

 

Dezi atop the cat tree looking down

 

 

 

          Really Raena? Me hopes they got away too. Ya’ know, we oughtta check fur some new hidin’ spots so mommy won’t be able to find us to take us to the ol stabby place. Me saw you watchin’ mommy drag stuffs outta the furbidden room (closet), did she make enuff room fur us to get in and hide? 

 

Raena lays on the bed on jeans

It sure looks like fun in there mommy. Where’d you get all that stuffs?

 

 

 

I’s don’t think so sissy. Who knew mommy had that many clothes?. I’s never seen her wear any of ‘em befur?. 

 

          Yeah Raena, it’s been a while. Those are mommy’s dressy clothes that she only wears fur special occasions. She hasn’t had much cause to wear ‘em in quite some time. Me does ‘member a time when she’d shimmy and shake into somethin’ called panty hose and shapers and then pull out somethin’ really nice from the furbidden room. Since we go to church at home now, mommy says she doesn’t need to wear the hose and shapers anymore. Truth be told, me doesn’t think they’d fit. MOL 

 

Ooooh Sissy, you better not let mommy hear you meow that. I’s think that might hurt her feelings. 

 

Dezi looks at camera while sitting on cat scratcher

 

 

 

 

          Sometimes the truth hurts, Raena. You know mommy says we should always tell the truth, even ifin it’s not necessarily nice.

 

Uh, Mommy also says ifin ya’ can’t say somethin’ nice then don’t say anythin’ at all. I’s purretty sure implyin’ mommy’s fat would fall unner that category. 

 

          Fat? Me didn’t call mommy fat, you did and me’s tellin’. MOL You’re in trouble now. (Dezi runs to mommy laughing all the way

 

Dezi, watches RAena walk off the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

(Raena runs after Dezi meowing) Wait!!! Sissy, I’s didn’t call mommy fat, you did. I’s can run faster than you. Besides, I’s the baby, who do you think mommy’s gonna believe? I’s gotta hurry and finish mine’s brekky so we can get ready to go to Tishomingo today. Fanky fankfully, it’s not s’posed to storm today. Maybe we can stop fur some special treats. Ifin you don’t tell mommy, I’s’ll bring you somethin’ back?.

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.

 

Dezi lays on scratcher, profile selfie

 

 

 

          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.

 

 Dezi sits on cat tree looking at camera while Raena sits on small perch looking out the door

 

 

 

          (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. 

 

 Dezi lays on the liberty cat tree with Raena sitting on perch looking out the door

 

 

 

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’.

 

 Dezi lays on the liberty cat tree looking outside while RAena poses on the small perch in front of door

 

 

 

          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!!!
