That’s No Hog, It’s Thunder!!!

HEY!!! IS ANYPAWDY OUT THERE? IT’S ME, RAENABELLE!!! (Raena meows at the top of her lungs) Mommy, I’s don’t think they can hear me over the thunder boomers. Are they ever gonna stop? At furst, I’s thought somepawdy had left their motercycle runnin’ full blast. But then the whole room lit up with that lightnin’ stuffs, and I’s knew it wasn’t no “Hog”. I’s really tired of it mommy. We haven’t got to visit any of our furiends all week long. And where’s sissy? Sissyyyyyyyyyyyy…Sissy!!! Where are you? I’s wanna play, sissy. Purrlease come out and play with me.

 

 Raena looks outside from the small perch

Isn’t this sunshine bootyful? It lasted a whole 30 minutes.

 

          (Dezi meows back from UTB in the bedroom) Me’s bein’ safe Raena. Didn’t you hear mommy talkin’ ‘bout all the tornadoes and hail? The weather guesser said cars, outside animals, roofs and trailer houses WOULD be damaged!!! Don’t you ‘member mommy cryin’ and us purrayin’ fur all the animals what live outside?

 

 Dezi lays in the house on the Liberty cat tree

 

Of course I’s ‘member. But what do I’s know ‘bout hail and damagin’ winds? All I’s know ‘bout is that wet stuffs. Did you see mommy and me tryin’ to get in the house befur we got soaked? I’s was so x’cited to see the sunshine peekin’ thru the clouds yesfurday. I’s thought it was a great oppurrtunity to go fur a nice stroll and get some furesh air. And I’s couldn’t wait to wear mine’s new harness. Did you see me? I’s grew into it so nicely. It’s a purrfect fit now. Altho’ mommy says I’s not thru growin’ and will purrobably have to get a bigger one next year. Anyways, did you see me? Didn’t I’s look adorable?

          (Dezi meowmbles from UTB) Perrfect fit, uh huh. Adorable, sure thing. (Meowing loudly now) You looked real cute hunkerin’ down in the stroller while mommy was tryin’ to get ya’ll back in the house befur ya’ both got struck by lightnin’.

 

 Raena looks out from the stroller

 

Raena sits on sidewalk beside stroller in her tiger harness

 

Who knew the clouds could cry that hard without any warnin’? One minute we were baskin’ in the sunshine and the next we were runnin’ fur our lives in the dark. (Raena shakes her head) Hey Dezi, ya’ know that Hooligan in a Can prize you won from Cat Scouts? I’s luvved it. Fanky fanks fur sharin’ with me.

Dezi, sniffs the Silvervine bag

 

          Sure Raena. There was purrlenty of goodies to share. Me luvs bein’ a Cat Scout. That trip to the Kentucky Derby was a blast. And who knew me could pick the winner? Me chose me’s horsey cuz we’re always dreamin’ up ways to help mommy, so me thought Always Dreamin’ was a great name. Me fanked Den Master fur havin’ such a pawsum give away and sendin’ such a pawtastic purrize. Me can’t wait to try that grilled tuna fillet. Me can smell it thru the package, and it smells divine.

 

 Raena sniffs the bags of nip, vine and valerian from Derby prize

 

It sure does sissy. But I’s really luvved the smells comin’ from those smaller bags. Ya’ know, the ones mommy said was silvervine, valerian and nip? I’s sure wish I’s could be a Cat Scout.

 

 Dezi rolls with chirpy bird from the hooligan in a can Cat Scout Derby prize

 

          Well Raena, maybe after you grow up a bit more mommy will let you join. Right now, me’s the only Scout in the furmily, and me likes it that way just fine. (Dezi meows under her breath) Me needs some time away from You, even ifin it’s just virtual. (Dezi snickers

 

 Raena plays with refillable lobster from hooligan in a can prize

 

Well sissy, enjoy your time. I’s gonna keep askin’ mommy. At some point she’s gotta get tired of hearin’ it and let me join. In the mean time, I’s gonna go play with our new chirpy bird. Oh and link up with the Pet Parade too.

          Hopefully the storms will clear up soon and we’ll be able to visit our furiends. The power has flashed off and on all week, and mommy won’t turn the catputer on when that’s happenin’, so me sure hopes that stuffs stops soon. We’re thinkin’ ‘bout all our furiends even tho’ we can’t get by to visit with ya’. You go play Raena and leave me alone, so me can take a nap.

Chatting Cats: Furiday Playdates

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Can you believe it? Twice in one week, I’s…

  

 Raena lays on the back of the chair while Dezi looks up at her from the seat of the chair

 

          RaenaBelle!!! What are you doin’? 

 

Y, I’s writin’ mine’s posty sissy?. 

 

          You wrote the last post Raena, ‘member? 

 

I’s know sissy. Isn’t it pawsum that I’s writin’ two in a row? Furiday’s mine’s day, right?

 

 Dezi enjoys her Christmas nip toys

 

          You’re day? Furiday’s everypawdy’s day Raena, not just yours.

 

You know what I’s mean sissy. Besides, we’re havin’ a virtual play date today. We invited Valentine of Noir Kitty Mews to come over and play. He even plans to innerview us fur is bloggy tomorrow.

 

 Dezi and Raena with nip toy

 

          Yeah, me knows. That Val sure seems like a cool kitty. Me hopes he’s not ‘fraid of storms. You know, mommy checked the weather the other day, and the weather guessers were talkin’ ‘bout the wonderful sun puddles and warm temps of spring we were havin’. Guess they hadn’t been outside. Cuz there’s been no sun puddles ‘round here. And it’s been so cold and windy, you’d’a thought winter had done come back. Me thinks me needs to get a job as a weather guesser. Can you believe they get paid green papers to guess what’s gonna happen?

 

 Sun hidden in the cloud animated emoji

 

 

 Oh sissy, you wouldn’t wanna be a weather guesser. You’d have to leave mommy and go to work. But you’d furst have to go to school to learn how to guess the weather. 

 

 Rain, lightning cloud emoji

          Yeah, me bets they sit ‘round learnin’ how to toss coins. Anyways, cuz of all this weather, we’re behind in visitin’ all our furiends.

 

Well sissy, we won’t be gettin’ caught up today either. Mommy has her regular monthly doctor’s ‘pointment today, so we’ll be gone most of the day. Hey, is our new tunnel movin’? 

 

 Dezi and Valentine in the chair

 

          Yep, looks like Valentine’s here. 

 

 Raena and Valentine lay on the Liberty Cat Tree

 

I’s can’t wait to show him our cat trees. He was meowin’ ‘bout  how much he liked our Liberty tree. 

 

          And maybe you could take him fur a spin in the wheelchair. MOL  

 

Raena and Valentine sit in the wheelchair

Oh sissy, yous know I’s not allowed to drive without mommy.

 

          Me knows you’re not allowed to, but that doesn’t stop you from tryin’. 

 

 Raena, Valentine and Dezi with the cat's meow and nip nanner

 

We’re glad you could come and play Valentine. We do luv havin’ playdates. I’s gonna wrap it up now so I’s can go and play. Ifin you’d like to come over fur a play date, send a couple fotos to us via email, lexi.dezi@yahoo.com,  and we’ll give our new tunnel a workout. Don’t furget to enter our Animal Hearted Give Away.

Chatting Cats: Still Storming and Thank Yous

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me RaenaBelle. Was mine’s birthday pawrty amazin’ or what? I’s could do that every day. I’s sure do wanna fanky fank all our furiends fur comin’. The pawrty wouldn’t have been any fun without ya’.

 

 Raena sits in a box that had birthday gifts from the Tomcat family

          Raena, me told you birthdays only happen once a year. You’re gonna have to wait till next year to have another birthday pawrty.

 

Is that a long time sissy? That seems like a long time. Will it still be stormin’ and rainy? Cuz I’s would like the sun shine on mine’s birthday.

 

          It’s not that long Raena. As fur the storms and sun shine, nopawdy can know that fur sure. Y, The weather guessers said earlier this week that the sun was gonna reign supreme all week. But just take a look outside and tell me ifin you see any sun puddles?.

 

 Dezi and Raena sit on the Liberty cat tree and look outside

Enjoy Raena, mommy says da sun’s leavin’ as quick as it got here.

 

I’s don’t see sun puddles sissy, but I’s do see that momma birdy that made her nest in mommy’s old flower pot basket. She’s been busy. Did you hear her callin’ the lawn crew names yesfurday? And mommy thought she was vishus the day she attacked her. Hmmmpht  I’s think she actually pooped on one of those lawn men. She was swoopin’ down and cacklin’ louder than ther machines. It was a sight to see.

 

 Baby birds in nest

 

          No, me didn’t see all that Raena, but me’s glad you enjoyed the show. Mommy said the babies are gettin’ bigger and have lots of feathers now. Me’s gotta tell ya’, they sure are the quietest babies me’s ever seen. We’ve never actually heard them peepin’ fur food. They really must have a good mommy.

 

 Baby birds in nest

 

Yeah sissy, mommy says every time she’s gone out there, they’re quiet as can be. The only one doin’ any squawking’ is the mommy bird. I’s can’t wait till they start learnin’ to fly. Ya’ reckon mommy’ll let us go out and play with ‘em?

 

          That ain’t happenin’ Raena. You know mommy’s a bit of a germ-a-fobe, and those birdies purrobably have mites and who knows what else. (Dezi shudders

 

Mites?!! I’s sure don’t want any birdy cooties sissy. Guess it’s a good thing mommy knows those kinds of things, so we don’t get into any trouble. Maybe, our Trout Towne furiends are on to somethin’ not likin’ birds. Our delishus freeze dried chicky breasts don’t have any mites, do they sissy?

 

          Nah Raena, by the time they get put into bags and shipped to our house, any mites and cooties they might have had have been all cleaned up. Speakin’ of freeze dried chicky breasts…

 

 Raena checks out her 1st birthday gift from the Tomacat family

 

Oh sissy, you were ‘bout to mention mine’s birthday purresents weren’t ya’? Fanky fank you uncle Pete, Timmy, Einstein, Fitz, Toby, Rumpy, Buddy Budd and Buttons. I’s luvs, luvs, luvs mine’s birthday purresents. And yes, I’s sharin’ with sissy. Those topper bottles are filled to overflowin’ with freeze dried chicky breasts and bonito flakes. They’re sooooooo delishus. And that sardine tin is great. Yeowww makes some of the bestest nip toys ever. Ya’ll didn’t have to get me anythin’, but I’s sure do ‘purreciate it. I’s such a blest kitty girl.

 

 Dezi, sniffs Raena's birthday gifts from the Tomcat family

 

          You’re also a spoiled kitty girl. 

 

 Raena tries to open the Yeowww sardine tin from the Tocat family

 

Oh sissy, mommy says that’s like the pot callin’ the tea kettle somethin’. Mommy says you’re purrlenty spoiled too.

 

          Of course me is. And me’s purroud of it. MOL  Me knows me has a great life, and pawsum furiends. Let’s go finish brekky befur the storms start up again, Raena.

Okay sissy. I’s gonna link up with the Pet Parade furst and I’s’ll join ya’ in a minute. Don’t eat all mine’s toppers. 

 

 

 Happy Birthday to angel Lexi in a heavenly frame with wings

 

          Tomorrow would have been sis Lexi’s 18th birthday. Mommy’s been a little sad this week and really missin’ her. So we need to give mommy some extra luvvin and cuddles. 

 

Raena lays in mommy's lap

I’s all over that sissy. I’s luvs givin’ mommy luvs and cuddles. I’s just wish the weather would purrk up so we could go fur a stroll. That would fur sure make mommy feel better. We hope all our furiends have a pawsum weekend. Join us next week fur an amazin’ give away and another great Service Cat Monday posty.

Hey, are ya’ll out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle, the Birthday girly. Are you ready to pawrty?? I’s know we’re late gettin’ mine’s pawrty posty out. Mommy’s havin’ some complications from her recent surgery that we’ll tell ya’ ‘bout in another posty, cuz today…it’s all ‘bout ME!!! Mommy and sissy said so. I’s such a blest kitty. I’s can’t hardly believe I’s been alive a whole year. And what a year it’s been. From a stinky dark corner cage to a furever home with a mommy who luvs and adores me, and the wide world of bloggin’. I’s could have never ‘magined how mine’s little life woulda turned out the day mommy came to save me.

 

 Raena with a party hat, balloons and gift

 

I’s showed up and you all welcomed me with open arms. I’s blest to have furiends and awnties and uncles who luvs me. I’s even get to be a review kitty fur lots of great products.

          Yeah, yeah, get off me. Let’s get this pawrty started. Stay as long as ya’ want. We’ve got treats and noms, toys, and nip, and even some vine. The tunnel’s set up, and there’s nip mats and beds, blankets and pillows, so you can crash here ifin ya’ want. Just ‘member to use the boxes. Mommy’s not in the mood to be cleanin’ the floors. MOL  She even put down some extra piddle pads fur any hurlin’ ya’ might need to do ifin ya’ purrtake a little too much.

Chatting Cats: Play Dates, Storms and Updates

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me RaenaBelle. I’s made it thru another day without mommy. But just barely. And OMC yesfurday was just pawful. 

 

 Dezi lays in chair and looks pretty

 

          What are you meowin’ on ‘bout Raena?

 

 Raena sits on the brown cat tree

 

I’s tellin’ everypawdy ‘bout how pawful yesfurday was sissy. How mommy left us home to go to her ‘pointment with Ms. Navy. I’s just getting’ to the even worst pawrt. You know the Storm?! You was s’posed to be in charge, but you spent most of the day UTB and left me all alone.

 

 

 

          You weren’t all alone, me invited our furiends Alberto and Ollie from Feline Opines to come over and play. Is it me’s fault that the skies decided to storm, and ya’ll didn’t know what to do?

 

Well, I’s guess not. But still, you were s’posed to be in charge. We needed you to play with the wand toy with us. Or help us get the ‘lectric toys down, cuz mommy put them up. 

 

 Raena and Alberto sit on the Liberty Cat Tree

 

          Mommy put the ‘lectric toys up Raena, cuz the batteries are dead and she hasn’t gotten any new ones. Mommy says she thinks the world runs on double and triple A batteries. But there were purrlenty of other toys fur ya’ll to play with, includin’ the cat trees. Can me help it ifin the thunder boomers scared ya’ll off the tree? It wasn’t botherin’ me UTB (under the bed).

 

Those thunder boomers was loud, sissy. Mommy’s s’posed to be here with us, when we have bad weather. Mommy’s s’posed to purrtect us.

 

 Dezi and Raena look outside from their perches near the door.

 

          Yep Raena, me agrees. But sometimes, mommy’s have to do things they don’t necessarily want to do that takes them away from us fur a short time. We’re really blest that we usually get to go with mommy or that she is home with us most of the time. Some of our furiends our left alone everyday while their humans go to work and stuffs.  And besides, we were just as safe as we woulda been ifin mommy had’a been here.

 

Hmmmpht  I’s sure glad mommy doesn’t leave us alone everyday.

 

          Me is too Raena. But it’s purrfectly normal fur peeps to work, or go shoppin’ all without their kitties. And ya’ know what? Those kitties are just fine stayin’ by themselves. 

 

Well sissy, that’s pawsum that so many kitties are fine, but that’s not the way we live. I’s don’t like it when mommy goes somewhere without us. I’s sure hope those days are over. 

 

 Dezi and Raena lay on the cat tree and small perch to look out the window and chat

 

          Me too Raena, cuz lissenin’ to you caterwaul at the door gets on me’s nerves. Fankfully, mommy’s ‘pointment yesfurday went well. She wasn’t really aware of how serious this sinus thing was, cuz when the doctor’s office called to confurm her re-check, they said she was on a “Sinus Watch”, and that it was really ‘purrtant she make her re-check ‘pointment. The doctor told mommy that she was healin’ like a teenager. She actually said, “like a fifteen year old”. They all had a good laff, as mommy’s not been a teenager fur a very long time. MOL  Mommy still has to abstain from blowin’ her nose fur another 2 weeks cuz of this sinus thing. ‘Pawrnetly, it’s pawssible fur mommy to blow a hole open into her sinuses that could lead to infection and even death ifin it doesn’t close purropurrly. But the good news is, that she can furinally eat somethin’ besides Malt O Meal and baked smashed taters. She still can’t eat crunchy foods, but soft foods are on the menu goin’ furward. WooHoo  Least till the next round of dental work. MOL

That’s great news sissy. Did you get a whiff of what mommy brought home last night? I’s smelled turkey and bacon in that Arby’s box. 

 

          Me sure did Raena. Me can’t wait fur mommy to take that box outta the fridge and warm it up. Me’s gettin’ the furst bite.

 

 Pet Parade Blog Hop Badge

Hmmmmpht  We’ll see ‘bout that. MOL Anyways, we better wrap it up fur today. Mommy’s purretty tired. Seems that trip was purretty hard on mommy. We’re linkin’ up with the Pet Parade. And don’t furget mines Birthday pawrty next week. Click below to see mine’s invite.

 

Raena’s Birthday Party Invite

 

          Me doesn’t think anypawdy could furget your Birthday Raena. You keep meowin’ ‘bout it all the time. Let’s go check out that box that came yesfurday. Mommy says it’s birthday gifts fur you. You know you have to share, right?
