Chatting Cats: We Had A Visitor

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle.

 

 Dezi licks lip as she looks around the corner from the dining room

 

          RaenaBelle, what are you meowin’ ‘bout now?

 

(Excitedly, Raena meows) I’s gonna tell everypawdy ‘bout our special day yesfurday. Ya’ know, ‘bout our pawsum visitor?

 

 Dezi sits in Elizabeth's lap

Great shootin’ mommy. Ya caight awnty Elizabeth with her eyes

closed while she was tryin’ to lug me up to her lap.

 

 

          Our visitor? Don’t you mean me’s special visitor?

 

 Raena looks up at Elizabeth from her lap

Awnty Elizabeth seems nice enuff. Maybe I’s’ll just relax a

bit and enjoy da extra luvvin’.

 

 

(Looking and sounding confused, Raena meows) No, sissy, I’s mean ours. Mommy said they came to see both of us. Mommy says, they’re our pawsum awnties from far away. 

 

          Well, (Dezi says in a huff) They’re only your pawsum awnties, cuz of me and sis Lexi. Ifin you didn’t live here, they wouldn’t… 

 

     Deztinee Izabella!!! Stop that. You be nice to your sisfur, our visitors wanted to see her just as much as they did you.

 

Raena sleeps in Elizabeth's lap

I’s relaxed so much, I’s went to sleep. Luvs ya’ awnty Elizabeth.

 

Fanky fanks mommy. ‘Sides, who did mommy have to chase down to come out and visit in the furst place. And it wasn’t me. (Raena meows sassily

 

     RaenaBelle?!! (Mommy says with a lilt in her voice)

 

Sorry mommy. (Dezi and Raena meow their apology in unison) I’s had so much fun. At furst I’s wasn’t sure ‘bout whether or not to trust ‘em, but that awnty Elizabeth be so nice and gentle. She luvved mine’s furs and kept sayin’ how purretty I’s am. 

 

 Dezi sits in Elizabeth's lap

That’s better mommy. Me luvs you awnty Elizabeth.

 

 

          Yeah, well, she said me was purretty too, Raena. And she kept sayin’ how bootyful me’s marking’s are. And, it was really nice of her and awnty Sonja to take our fotos with mommy. Ya’ know, we so rarely have somepawdy here that can help mommy take fotos of us with her. She says she wishes she had more fotos of her and sis Lexi. So now, she tries to take advantage of every chance she has to have somepawdy take fotos of her and us. ‘Course, as always, after seein’ the fotos, mommy wishes she had dressed up a bit more.

 

 Raena lays in mommy's arms

I’s luvs bein’ in mommy’s arms, flashy boxes and all.

 

 

Yeah sissy, mommy always says things like that. I’s think it goes back to the time befur digital cameras when every foto counted. Now a days, peeps just click and delete constantly. Let me tell ya’ we thought the flash on our camera was bad. Kittens!!! The flash on awnty Elizabeth’s fone was soooooo bright, and lasted furEver!!! Even mommy blinked.

 

 Dezi in mommy's arms

Me luvs bein’ in mommy’s arms too Raena.  Soon, she’ll be smilin’

and showin’ off her teethies again.

 

 

          That she did Raena, that she did. MOL  And then, mommy couldn’t see anythin’ but flashes fur a bit. Now she knows what we feel like when she constantly chases us ‘round with the flashy box.

 

 Raena lays in mommy's arms

There’s no place like mommy’s arms. There’s no place

like mommy’s arms. Oh, wait, I’s think I’s sayin’ dat wrong. MOL

 

 

Maybe sissy, but you know she ain’t gonna stop. Mommy says she luvs takin’ fotos of us. She says we make the purrettiest fotos ‘round. That might have somethin’ to do with our beauty.

 

          RaenaBelle!!! Conceited much?! 

 

I’s don’t know what that means, sissy.? 

 

 Dezi eats treats while on the liberty cat tree

 

          It means…oh, never mind what it means Raena. You’re purrobably right. Me really enjoyed the treats awnty Elizabeth brought us too. Mommy said you showed your picky hiney and wouldn’t eat ‘em.

 

Raena eats treats while on the liberty cat tree

 

I’s didn’t mean to hurt awnty Elizabeth’s feelings’ sissy. There was just so much excitement goin’ on. Who wanted to stop gettin’ luvvin’ and made over to eat treats? Not me, that’s fur sure. I’s ate some after they left tho’. Fanky fanks fur the treats awnty Elizabeth. And, fanky fanks fur comin’ to see us.

 

 Dezi and Raena eat treats while on the liberty cat tree

 

          That’s okay Raena, that just meant more treats fur me. MOL  Me ate ‘em right up and enjoyed every morsel. You snooze, you lose. MOL  Let’s go see ifin we can get mommy to give us some more of those treats now.

Is That Duck Or Turkey #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We didn’t fall off the face of the earth, or get swallowed up, or even whisked off by some tornado. Nope, nuffin’ so dramatic. Mommy had lots of human business to attend too, and no time fur kitty bloggin’. I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s don’t like all this human business stuffs and lease re-cert stuffs. I’s’ll be glad when it’s all over.

 

 Raena looks out door from small perch

 

          We all will Raena. We dread this time of year every year. Anyways, we’re furinally here, so let’s not meow ‘bout all that, let’s get on with today’s posty.

 

You mean our review of that plate of stuffs mommy gave us? I’s think I’s would rather meow ‘bout the weather.

 

          Maybe so Raena, but our furiends just might be innerested in tryin’ it out.

Instinct food toppers

You’re right sissy. And, we’re so fanky fankful to be pawrt of the Chewy Influencer team and have the oppurrtunity to try all these wonderful things out. Mommy, like a lot of our furiends humans’, is always on the lookout fur top notch, good fur us foods and treats. So, when mommy saw Nature’s Variety Instinct as an offurin’ this month, she knew we had to try it. As most of ya’ know by now, we luvs us some duck, so mommy got us the Instinct Healthy Cravings Grain-Free real Duck Recipe in savory gravy 3 oz. food topper. Let’s see what Chewy has to say ‘bout these toppers: 

 

Key Benefits

  • Cuts of cage-free duck in a savory gravy make the perfect meal complement.

  • Use it as a topper or mixer to add the delicious taste and moisture your cat craves.

  • Never contains any grains, potato, corn, wheat, soy, by-product meal or artificial colors or preservatives.

  • Made in the USA with the finest ingredients from around the world.

  • Guided by the belief in nutrition that is real, whole, pure and as close to its natural state as possible.

Ingredients

  1. Turkey Broth, Duck, Turkey, Turkey Liver, Eggs, Ground Dried Peas, Natural Flavor, Sodium Phosphate, Guar Gum, Salt, Sodium Carbonate, DL-Methionine

Caloric Content

  1. 74 kcal/pouch

Instinct Food topper

 

          As you can see in the ingredient list, it doesn’t contain any of those questionable ingredients that our humans are always tryin’ to avoid. But, it does contain some ingredients Raena and me try to avoid. MOL Now let me tell ya’, we luv us some of that turkey tom lurkey furesh off the bone, yes we do. But, we don’t like it when it’s been pressed, formed, or otherwise placed in our cat foods.

 

 Instinct Food Topper

 

We sure don’t sissy. I’s don’t know how mommy could have missed this. I’s mean, it’s the furst and third ingredient in the list. Ya’ think she was hopin’ we wouldn’t notice?

 

 Dezi and Raena checking out the instinct duck topper

 

          Yep Raena, me’s sure she was hopin’ there was enuff duck in there that we wouldn’t even notice the turkey.

 

Well sissy, she was wrong. We noticed it right away, and turned our noses up. 

 

 Dezi running from the Instinct food toppers

Me said NO, mommy. Me doesn’t wanna eat it.

 

          Me knows Raena. But sometimes, mommy just can’t take the hint. Did you see her chasin’ me ‘round the house with that plate? Me already told her me didn’t wanna eat it, and here she comes, right over to the scratcher. We never get to eat on the cat furniture. Did she think me would suddenly eat pressed turkey ifin me could eat it on the scratcher? Hmmpht  Not happenin’.

 

 Raena sniffs Instinct Food Topper

 

Yep, sissy, me either. I’s do have to meow that even tho’ we didn’t like it, the Instinct Grain-Free Wet cat food toppers have some really good ingredients. It also comes in Chicken and Tuna. The savory gravies are a great way to get water into your kitties. They come in a case of 24) 3 oz. packages and range in price from $25.00 to $32.00. So, I’s have to give them at least 1 paw up.

 

          Yep Raena, me will give them a paw up too. Good ingredients are hard to find, so me’s glad to see that Instinct has taken that into account. Has mommy got her breath back from chasin’ me ‘round with the plate? 

 

Dezi watches Raena atop the Liberty cat tree

 

Yep sissy, and she was a bit disappointed that we wouldn’t even try it. She did say that she must’ve missed all the turkey. She knew it had turkey broth, but her old eyes missed the rest of it. Nevertheless, she says it deserves a thumb up fur the lack of questionable ingredients. But, she said she did wish that when a food said it was one ingredient, that the companies wouldn’t substitute cheaper proteins to make it go further. Ya’ know, this can be a real purroblem fur kitties with food allergies too. So, it’s not just us finicky kitties that this be an issue fur.

 

Raena peeks around the corner at the remote controlled mouse

 

          That’s so true Raena. Ya’ know we luv Chewy. They carry so many pawsum purroducts fur all the furry, finned and feathered members of your furmily. And they always have a great purrice. There’s an auto ship program so you never have to worry ‘bout runnin’ out of your pets favorites. Don’t worry, you can skip, cancel or delay at anytime.

Prepping The Dance Floor #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. It’s furinally the weekend!!! What does a kitty care ‘bout the weekend you ask? We really don’t, but all humans seem a little happier come Furiday. And, that makes us kitties happier too. We know that mommy’s a lot happier on Furidays’. I’s think it has somethin’ to do with the office bein’ closed, so we won’t be bothered fur the next 3 days.

 

 Dezi sits on scratcher and looks back at Raena laying on the nip mat

 

          You’re right ‘bout all of that Raena, but it really has nuffin’ to do with our posty today.

 

Maybe not sissy, but, shouldn’t we acknowledge that peeps be happy and wish ‘em a happy weekend? 

 

 Chewy Logo

 

          (Dezi shakes head) Whatever Raena. Anyways, as pawrt of the Chewy bloggin’ furmily we get to try out and review great purroducts every month. This month was no different. As most of ya’ know, we use a natural litter in our pawdee boxes. Mommy likes natural cuz ifin it happens to get stuck to our furs and ultimately ends up in our tummies, it’ll move right on thru us and not become a clump in our intestines. And, most natural litters are flushable. Altho’ as most of ya’ may ‘member, we got one of those litter genie’s fur Raena’s birthday that we now use. And, maybe the most purrtant reason, or at least the second most purrtant, they contain no purrfumes. You know us kitties have the most sensitive sniffers ‘round.

 

This is a sponsored post. We received the Okocat Cat Litter in exchange for our honest opinion. As always, we tell it like we see it and only bring products we use or have tried and feel would be of interest to you, our readers and friends. 

  

 Dezi lays on scratcher while Raena lays on nip mat

 

Those are great reasons sissy. Mommy’s always lookin’ out fur us, ain’t she?. Anyways, fur many years, these natural litters have been made of corn, paper or wheat. All great purroducts, lessen your kitty happens to have an allergy to corn or wheat. Wha’ch’a gonna do now?

 

 Okocat cat litter

 

          Good point Raena. Well, enter Okocat, a natural litter made of wood. Altho’ we must add they do have one litter made of paper, but, we’re gonna be meowin’ ‘bout the wood today. We got to try the Okocat Soft Step Natural Wood clumping litter. It’s called soft step cuz it’s finely milled to make it easy on kitty’s tender paw pads. Let’s see what Chewy has to say ‘bout the Okocat litter:

 

Key Benefits

  • Naturally lightweight natural cat litter with a super soft texture your cat will love. Soft Step™ is a fine wood granule, a texture similar to that of clay litter so transitioning your cat to natural is easy. True to its name, it’s perfect for delicate paws, seniors and kittens.

  • Made to control odors for up to 7 days with its patented Odor Shield Technology. Okocat litter binds and traps liquids and odors longer without using chemical additives,

  • Its specially formulated pellets are firm on the outside and soft on the inside. It is fortified with long lasting odor control technology and has been lab-tested and proven to absorb more than 5X its weight in liquid.

  • Higher absorbency and higher yield means litter stays dry and lasts much longer than clay litters, or even other naturals. Superior clumping makes scooping and cleaning easier with less mess and less waste, saving you time and money.

  • It also has the added benefit of being biodegradable. Okocat is naturally lightweight and comes in a smart compostable package with an easy carry handle and pour spout

 

 Okocat Cat Litter

 

We received the 7 pound box. Now mommy knew that 7 pounds wouldn’t fill even one of our litter boxes, so she poured it across the top of our regular litter. Okocat recommends the litter box be filled to a depth of 3 inches. Trust me, this is fur sure somethin’ you wanna do, ‘specially ifin you have diggers like me. Mommy says I’s gonna end up in China one of these days. I’s don’t know what she’s talkin’ ‘bout. I’s luvs mine’s home and fur sure don’t wanna go to China without mommy and sissy. Anyways…

 

          It’s a figure of speech Raena. Me knows, human’s sure do have a lot of them. And, half the time they don’t make any sense what so ever. Me asked mommy ‘bout the dust factor and she said, to be honest, she didn’t really ‘member ifin there was a dust cloud or not. That usually means there wasn’t one, cuz she ‘members every time she hacks up a hair ball due to litter dust.

 

 Okocat cat litter

 

Yep, I’s didn’t notice all that much dust durin’ mine’s diggin’ forays either sissy. It doesn’t have much of a smell, which is really nice. It feels soft on mine’s paws too. We insist the pawdee box be scooped after every use, so we can’t really meow ‘bout how long the Okocat would hide the smell, but, mommy said it didn’t stink while she was scoopin’. I also didn’t end up with a bloomer full of wood chips. Let me tell ya’, that’s been really nice. Mommy says it has somethin’ to do with the way I’s squat and the litter bein’ wet when I’s stand back up. So, we can surmise that the Okocat natural wood litter clumps and dries almost immediately. And, the clump remains a clump ‘stead of breakin’ up durin’ mine’s attempts of dislodging covering it up.

Bathrrom floor right at the door (approx. 4 ft. from litter box)

 

          You and your diggin’ Raena. Me just walks in, squats, goes and leaves. It’s so much easier that way. 

 

Fur you maybe. I’s come ‘round behind ya’ and cover it all up. Did your sis Lexi (God rest her) do that too? 

 

tracked okocat

Okocat tracked onto floor right in front of litterbox and mat.

 

          Who asked ya’, Raena? Mommy’s gonna scoop it out when me’s finished. No need to spend time diggin’ when me could be bathin’ or gettin’ some beauty sleeps. Me must tell ya’ll that while the Okocat wood litters may not stick to our bloomers, it sure does track. Mommy says the bathroom is like a dance floor now…all dusted and ready fur jitterbuggers.

 

tracked okocat

Littermat in front of large litter box.

 

Yeah sissy, I’s didn’t unnerstand that one either. But, mommy says she used to luvs to dance; and that all good dance floors had a little sawdust put down to keep them from bein’ too slippery. She said she hadn’t thought ‘bout it befur, but the light bulb went off when she saw the dust on the floor. Wood chips equals sawdust. Anyways, the Okocat comes in several different formulas and textures, from finely milled wood, pine and paper to pellets. It’s also flushable and eco-friendly, bein’ made of 100% reclaimed fibers, free from chemicals, dyes and other synthetics. It ranges in purrice from $11.19 to $18.14 and comes in sizes from 7 pounds to 20 pounds, depending on formulas. All in all, we give it 3 paws up and a thumb up from mommy.

 

 Dezi lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

          Yep Raena, the only downfall we saw was the dance floor effect. Altho’, mommy says trackin’ is just one of those things kitty peeps get used too. As always, we ‘purreciate Chewy lettin’ us try out the Okocat cat litter. Chewy has purroducts fur all the furry, feathered, and scaled members of your household. You can also set up an auto-ship so you never run out of your favorite purroducts. And Chewy’s customer service is the bestest. You can check out the Chewy blog hop fur other pawsum purroduct reviews.

Chatting Cats: Ding Ding Goes the Bell

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Can you believe it? The weekend’s here already!!! WooHoo  The sun is shinin’, the birds are singin’ and…

 

 Dezi looks up at Raena atop the Liberty cat tree

 

           What are you meowin’ on ‘bout Raena? 

 

 Raena looks at mommy from stroller

 

Summer time sissy, summer time has furinally arrived!!! Sorry Trout Towne Tabbies, we do like the birdies. Ya’ know, I’s been givin’ that a lot of thought lately, and I’s think maybe it’s cuz of where we live. Ya’ know, our likin’ birds more than we do fishies?. We live in an area surrounded by land. Sure, mommy says Oklahoma has purrlenty of ponds, lakes and rivers, but none of ‘em are all that close to us. Y, Even when we went to the Petco last week, we didn’t see any fishies. Mommy said there was s’posed to be fishies in all those glass boxes we saw, but alas, they were all dark and not a fishy in sight. Hey sissy, did you read the comments the other day ‘bout your extra claws? 

 

 Dezi's extra claw on ankle

Ifin ya’ look real close, you can see that claw would grow right

into the center of that big fleshy paw pad.

 

          Me did Raena. Seems several peeps didn’t quite unnerstand what me was meowin’ ‘bout and said me’s special toe was a dew claw, and that all kitties have ‘em. Mommy said we should try to ‘splain it a bit better. The V-E-T said it fur sure wasn’t a dew claw, but instead just an abnormality of me’s front paw and leg. Mommy says it’s just somethin’ that makes me even more special. Me isn’t a pawlydactal, and this toe is totally useless. It serves no function other than to make me special and give me somethin’ else to have to groom. We know the foto is purretty bad, but hey, when ya’ have as much fur as me does, it can offen get in the way of gettin’ clear fotos. So, let me try to ‘splain it a bit better. Me has the normal paw like every other kitty, complete with fleshy soft paw pads. But, ifin ya’ follow the center of me’s paw pad up the middle of me’s leg a ways, ‘bout where an ankle would be, me has another really small pad with a tiny claw purrtrusion. Fankfully the claw doesn’t really grow like me’s other ones, or it would grow right into me’s large fleshy paw pad. Ifin that was to happen, me would have to have it surgically removed. Ya’ know, it’s really ‘purrtant to keep your kitties claws trimmed. Y, Ifin those things were to grow into our paw pads we could end up in a lot of pain and even lame.

 

Dezi and Raena lay atop the Liberty cat tree

You’re so right sissy. But ya’ know, not every kitty likes havin’ their claws trimmed. 

 

 Dezi lays in the Liberty cat tree house

 

          You got that right Raena. Mommy’s always sayin’ she doesn’t unnerstand why we’re such tigers ‘bout claw clippin’. She’s the only one who’s ever clipped our claws and she’s never once clipped too far or hurt us. We had even planned to post a claw clippin’ how to video at one point. But, claw trimmin’ time ‘round here is like a heavy weight boxin’ ‘bout.

 

Dezi and Raena lay atop the Liberty Cat tree

 

     Round 1: Mommy pawsitions kitty in lap while cooin’ ‘bout how bootyful we are. She grabs the clippers and a paw and starts feelin’ ‘round the paw fur a toe. Kitty squirms and pulls paw free. (Ding, Ding goes the bell).

     Round 2: Unphased, mommy grabs paw again and feels ‘round fur a toe. She finds a toe and pushes the claw furward while tryin’ to move fur out of the way with semi-furee finger. Kitty squirms and gets paw furee. (Ding Ding goes the bell)

     Round 3: Mommy enters trance like state, she’s all business now. She grabs kitty’s paw, finds toe and extends claw while cooin’ ‘bout how much more bootyful we’re gonna be when our claws are trimmed. With semi-furee finger, she tries to push away extra fur and moves the clippers to the claw fur the clip. Kitty pulls claw back just as the clippers shut. (Ding, Ding goes the bell)

     Round 4: Mommy grabs paw while ‘splainin’ how we can’t do that or she’ll accidentally hurt us and clip too much. Kitty hisses and squirms till almost furee. (Ding, Ding goes the bell)

So far, kitty 4, mommy 0

Dezi looks out door from atop the Liberty cat tree while Raena sleeps on the ledge below her

 

     Round 5: Mommy lays down clippers and re-pawsitions kitty on lap. Kitty growls their dispurrleasure and tries to bite mommy’s hand. (Ding, Ding goes the bell)  

     Round 6: Mommy holds kitty furmly so kitty can’t wiggle furee yet again. Trance like state deepens and mommy grabs paw, finds toe, pushes claw furward while usin’ semi-furee finger to move away fur and clips. Awwwwww Sweet success. 1 down and, how many more to go? Mommy sighs. Kitty continues to squirm and pull at paw, but the trance is workin’. Mommy continues to coo ‘bout kitty’s beauty while feelin’ fur yet another toe. Kitty hisses and bites mommy’s hand fureein’ kitty’s paw. (Ding, Ding goes the bell)

     Round 7: Mommy places her chin over kitty’s head in an attempt to keep kitty from bitin’ yet again. She grabs paw, finds toe, pushes claw furward, with semi-furee finger pushes away excess fur as kitty squirms, hisses and growls. CLIP!!! Success…oops, mommy missed the claw. (Ding, Ding goes the bell)

     Round 8: Still holdin’ paw with claw extended, mommy clips again. Success. Kitty can feel mommy’s heart beatin’ faster with the joy of 2 claws down. Kitty’s tail swooshes viciously while kitty maintains a low steady growl and continues to try to pull paw furee. Mommy gets a mouth full of fur and releases paw to retrieve excess fur from her mouth. (Ding, Ding goes the bell)

     Round 9: Mommy babbles on ‘bout how there’s just a few more to go while grabbin’ kitty’s paw again. Kitty growls, kitty hisses and tries to bite mommy’s hand while she remains stoic and finds another toe. Pushin’ claw furward, movin’ excess fur, mommy goes in fur the clip. Kitty furees head from under mommy’s chin and puts head in line of sight to said claw. (Ding, Ding goes the bell

     Round 10: Mommy starts singin’ the claw trimmin’ song while grabbin’ paw, findin’ toe, pushin’ claw furward, movin’ excess fur with semi-furee finger and clippin claw. Kitty gets that mommy means business at this point, and reluctantly settles in with a low steady growl. Kitty must continue to occasionally try to bite mommy’s hand, just so mommy doesn’t furget that kitty is not purrleased.

 

 Dezi lays in house of Liberty cat tree

 

          Once claw clippin’ is furinally over, a hunnerd and 87 minutes later, and mommy releases kitty, kitty runs to scratcher to sharpen newly blunted claws. Once kitty is certain claws are still there, kitty returns to mommy fur a little luvvin’. Mommy luvs on kitty while ‘splainin’ that ifin we’d only sit still, it could all be over in less than a minute. Kitty doesn’t care and continues purrin’ loudly while bein’ petted and hugged. 

 

 Raena sleeps belly up and all sprawled out

I’s need a short nap after all dat talk of claw trimmin’.

 

And that, dear furiends is why we’ve never posted a claw trimmin’ how to video. MOL I’s do the exact same thing, and have since day 1.  Mommy only has 2 hands and 10 fingers, not nearly enuff to do the deed and manage a camera.

 

 Pet Parade Blog Hop Badge

 

          Let’s link up with the Pet Parade Raena, and finish our brekky. Me has a feelin’ there might be some claw trimmin’ in store fur us this weekend. We’ve gotta keep up our strength ifin we have any chance of goin’ 10 rounds or more with mommy.

 

Okay sissy. And, did you know this is the 200th celebration of the Pet Parade? One Pet Parade a week, that’s almost 4 years of linkin’ up. A meowsy big Concats to the hosts, co-hosts and all those who link up every week.
