Tell All Tuesday: A Backseat Hammock #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s gotta tell ya’, just when I’s didn’t think it could rain and storm anymore, it rained and stormed some more. It poured so hard we had flood puddles ‘stead of sun puddles. I’s was sure we were gonna drown. But, just as quick as it flooded, it all got drank up by the thirsty dirt. Fanky fankfully, cuz mommy says the weather guessers are repurrtin’ more storms in our near future. Hmmmpht

          It ain’t stormin’ right now Raena, so let’s focus on somethin’ besides all the water and thunder boomers. 

 

What do you wanna meow ‘bout sissy? Maybe mommy’s betrayal? Did you see her? I’s mean, I’s couldn’t believe mine’s own blue eyes. I’s thought they must be all mucky. I’s tried wipin’ ‘em and washin’ ‘em and I’s even closed ‘em real tight and opened ‘em in a hurry. No matter what I’s did, I’s saw the same thing. I’s could even hear her, cooin’ and gigglin’ and sayin’ all the sweet things she says to us to IT. (Raena shudders

          Nah Raena, me didn’t see any of that. Me had already headed out fur a huntin’ adventure…UTB (under the bed). So, what happened? Are you sure ‘bout what you’re meowin’? You know mommy luvs us and me doesn’t think she’d ever betray us. 

 

Raena hunches on the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

Well!!! You didn’t see what I’s saw, sissy. It was betrayal of the highest order. Yep, saw it with mine’s own eyes and I’s can’t unsee it. Ya’ know, I’s don’t mind mommy drivin’ ‘round in the colds and feedin’ the less furtunate kitties and cooin’ at them. I’s don’t even mind, much, when one lets her get in a pet now and then. I’s purray every night fur all those kitties to find a luvvin’ furever. But I’s draw the line at puttin’ the neighbors obnoxious woofie in mine’s car and cooin’ and takin’ fotos!!! I’s mean, isn’t it bad enuff that we have to hear him barkin’ at all hours and hear the neighbor hollerin’ at him to shut up? It’s not right I’s tell ya’, just not right. What next…? 

 

          Uh Raena, me’s purretty sure you’re the blame fur all that. Me does seem to ‘member hearin’ mommy talk ‘bout it with you when she came back inside. You were standin’ at the door meowin’ at the top of your lungs. But, when mommy tried to get you to pose in the car, you didn’t want nuffin’ to do with it. 

 

Well where were you sissy? You could’a done it. 

 

Dezi and Raena with the Frisco Car Seat Cover

 

 

 

          Nah, huh uh. That’s not me’s gig. Mommy was so x’cited when Chewy offered the Frisco Quilted Water Resistant Car Seat Cover this month, that me thought she was gonna use it fur herself. She’s been lookin’ at ‘em fur a while now. She says it would allow us to travel without havin’ to be inside the stroller or carrier while in the car. But, me doesn’t mind layin’ in the stroller. You’re the one that always wants to get up and count cars and wave at truckers. So me told you that it was your job to pose with it when it got here. ‘Member? Me said me would meow ‘bout it all day, but you had to be the model. So, the way me sees it, you’re the blame fur mommy puttin’ a woofie in Our car. Why don’t we see what Chewy has to say ‘bout the seat cover.

Well sissy, I’s still think you could’a come out and took a few fotos. Anythin’ to keep mommy from goin’ to the woofies. Anyways, mommy got us the Quilted Hammock style fur comfurt. It’s nice and big and roomy and has2 big o’l pockets on both sides of it. The padding isn’t like your pillow top mattress or anythin’, but it did feel a bit comfy. And fur short trips, the hammock style works well to keep us from getting’ scared and hidin’ unner the car seat. Mommy says she had a kitty get unner the car seat befur and it took several hours to get kitty out. And the whole time, she was terrified that kitty might dart out the door and get hurt. The Car Seat Cover can be secured in place and allows fur us to be strapped in with the seat belt. Now, while I’s might not have posed very well, I’s can tell ya’ it’ll be purrfect fur lettin’ me look out the windows at the passin’ cars and trucks. Sometimes the nice truckers honk their horns at me. I’s thinkin’ as soon as mommy washes woofie off our seat cover, I’s gonna really enjoy it. 

 

Niggy the dog with car seat cover

 

 

 

          Well Raena, cleanin’ it up is gonna be really easy. It can be spot cleaned in case kitty or woofie has a little accident, or it can even go in the washin’ machine. Now that’s mommy’s kind’a clean up. And those pockets are big enuff to hold quite a bit. Y, you could put a few piddle pads, water bottles, bowls, treats, extra harnesses or dresses and still have room fur a few human things. Me got a real good look at it when mommy opened it up in the house. ‘Course, we gotta be honest as always and say that the instructions were a bit confusin’. Mommy got it figgered out, mostly. But, it took a while and there’s a few flaps she still hasn’t figgered out where they go. That bein’ said, ifin you have a kitty or woofie who would be happier sittin on the seat ‘stead of travelin’ in their carrier/PTU, then this is a great option. Just ‘member to be sure and strap kitty/woofie in with the seat belt. Safety Furst.

 

Niggy on car seat cover

 

 

 

Yep sissy, and it’ll fit most vehicles. We have a smaller mid size car and had no purroblem with size. As you can see by the fotos, it does fit a little funny, but that’s cuz mommy keeps the front passenger seat laid back to accommodate the stroller. Unfurtunately, it’s stormed most every day this month so mommy had to install it and take fotos in t’ween down pours. And, I’s might not be fraid of the storms when I’s inside, but with the rumbles in the skies and the car doors wide open, I’s wasn’t the most coopurrative model. Mommy did resort to goin’ next door and borrowin’ the neighbors doggy, Niggy. Yep, that’s his name alright. The Frisco Car Seat Covers are available in quilted and not and hammock style or regular. Prices range from $20.99 to $44.99. As always, orders of $49.00 or more at Chewy.com ship speedy and free with a flat rate shipping on all orders under $49.00.

Dezi:  They’re unwritten rules Raena. The sooner we get our post posted, the sooner we can start visitin’ furiends. 

 

          Raena:  Hmmmmpht  Like mommy’s gonna let us on the catputer with it stormin’ outside. Did you see all those puddles? It’s been rainin’ so hard we’ve actually got flood puddles. It’s amazin’ to me how we can go from desperately needin’ the rain to flooded over night. 

 

Dezi:  Yeah Raena, that’s true. Y, just a couple weeks ago we were unner a burn ban, and now you couldn’t find a dry piece of wood to even start a fire.

 

Raena sits pretty for the camera

 

 

 

          Raena:  Like you’d even know how to start a fire sissy. 

 

Dezi:  Shows what you know Raena. Me’s a cat scout. Me knows all ‘bout fires and campin’ and all kinds of other ‘purrtant things. 

 

Raena's profile sitting pretty

 

 

 

          Raena:  Yeah, sure sissy, whatever you meow. Anyways, I’s thought we were gonna count our Blessings. I’s countin’ mine’s mommy and me cuddle time. I’s so luvs cuddlin’ with mommy. And with all the storms this week, I’s had extra cuddle time. How ‘bout you?  

 

Dezi:  Yep Raena, me luvs cuddle time with mommy too. And, t’ween storms, me got some extras this week. Ya’ know, me was thinkin’ ‘bout all our furiends and those who have left us recently. We really miss them, but we were so Blest to have known them in the furst place. You know how mommy’s always sayin’, we’re never purromissed tomorrow, so you should never wait to express your feelings to those you luv. 

 

Raena naps all curled up in mommy's lap

 

 

 

          Raena:  That’s why mommy’s always tellin’ us how much she luvs us, isn’t it sissy?. Sometimes when I’s layin’ all curled up in mommy’s lap and she thinks I’s sleepin’, I’s can hear her fanky fankin’ God fur me and sayin’ how much she luvs me and needs me. Sometimes she even gets the leaky eyes. I’s can feel them when they fall on mine’s furs and she gently wipes them away. I’s don’t know why she’d cry like that. I’s never leavin’ mommy. 

 

Dezi looks for Raena while sitting in the wheelchair

 

 

 

Dezi:  Me thinks those are the happy tears Raena. You know, the kind humans get when they’re so overcome with luv and joy? Me’s heard mommy say the same things ‘bout me and sis Lexi befur you. We are very Blest to have a mommy who luvs us so much. We’re Blest to have such amazin’ furiends. We wish they never had to be sick or leave us and go to heaven. It makes us so sad and our hearts hurt. But, we cherish each moment we have with all of you. 

 

          Raena:  You can meow that again sissy. Mommy says the sads of loss are just another pawrt of luvs. And luvs be the greatest Blessing we can have. Well, besides mommy, our furiends, our home, our noms, our toys, our…

 

Dezi:  Alright Raena, we get the point. Let’s wrap this up and go get some of those extra cuddles from mommy. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to Give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. And let the special ones in your life know how ya’ feel.

Service Cats: Do Cats Need Sunshine For Vit. D

MeOW  Welcome to Service Cats and Everything Feline on Furidays. The one day a week we get totally serious and do our very best to help educate peeps ‘bout the nuances of feline health, behavior, and life as a feline guardian. Ifin you’ve missed any of the posts in this series, you can ketch up by clickin’ the links on our Training Tips and Everything Feline page. Don’t furget to submit your own questions or topic suggestions in the comment section below or send us a private email via our Contact page. We really do luv hearin’ from ya’ll.

The following post will be written in human English for reader and translator ease. Our Service Cat posts aren’t intended to be an all inclusive Training Manual but rather Tips, Tricks and Techniques used/developed by mommy A thru her many years of animal training, cats in purr-ticular. And to offer insight into your questions about Everything Feline. Always remember, successful Training is all about Repetition and Rewards.

We recently mentioned that we have a natural daylight lamp. Mommy bought it years ago because they’re supposed to use less electricity, last longer, and give off the same amount of light as incandescent bulbs without the heat. So, we were asked if it might help provide indoor kitties with Vitamin D. We gave a casual answer in the comments, but the more we thought about it, the more we decided it needed to be addressed; after all, everybody knows how much we kitties love a good sun puddle.

The sun on mine’s face, the wind in mine’s furs…

 

 

 

Can Cats Absorb Vit. D:

     The first thing we should look at is the lamp itself, or rather the bulb. Daylight lamps are in no way akin to Sun Lamps, which many used to “tan” inside. Daylight lamps do provide miniscule amounts of Vitamin D, but not enough to make any medical claims. However, it should be noted that cats Do Not actually need the Vitamin D provided by sunshine. The feline body doesn’t absorb Vitamin D through their skin the way humans do. Cats get all their Vitamin D from the food they eat, so feeding kitty a proper diet with the right nutrition is paramount. Do Not give kitty Vitamin D supplements unless prescribed by your V-E-T.

 

Vitamin D Toxicity:

     Cats can become very ill if they get too much Vitamin D, a condition called Hypervitaminosis D. Symptoms of Vitamin D toxicity usually occur within 12 to 48 hours of ingestion and include:

Vomiting

Weakness

Depression

Lack of appetite

Increased Thirst and Urination

Diarrhea

     Possible accidental causes of Vitamin D toxicity include ingestion of rat poison or human vitamins. If you think your kitty has gotten into either, please contact your V-E-T ASAP. Long story short, kitty doesn’t need that great sun puddle, they just enjoy it. And, kitties don’t need to go outside, they do just fine as indoor only pets.

All this sun and heat’s a bit overrated. 

 

 

 

Turns out, this was a great little question. We’re wrapping it up early today as it’s stormin’ somethin’ fierce out and we’re not sure ifin we’re gonna lose power or not. So, don’t furget to check out the other posts in this series by clickin’ the links on our Training Tips and Everything Feline page in our menu. And, leave your questions, comments and topic suggestions in the commetns below or by sending us an email via our Contact page. We’re also linkin’ up with Comedy Plus fur Feline Furiday. See ya’ next week. 

 

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