Chatting Cats: Never Too Old To Play

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. Mommy’s pickle’s in a pickle, so I’s in charge. I’s gotta meow to ya’ that I’s luvs bein’ in charge. This is just where kitties belong. 

 

Dezi lays on liberty tree and Raena on the small perch looking at each other in front of the door.

 

 

 

          RaenaBelle!!! Just who actually told you that you were in charge? And what ‘zactly are you in charge of? Me seems to ‘member that me’s your elder and have been here longer than you. Ifin anykitty’s gonna be in charge, it oughtta be me.  

 

Well sissy, you are right that you’re a little long in the toothies, but everypawdy knows, I’s the alpha kitty here. 

 

          Long in the toothies?! Me’s gonna tell mommy that you’re bein’ mean to me. You know it’s not nice to call kitties names. Here me’s given you the benefit of all me’s many years of trainin’ and expurr-ience, and me even innerduced you to all me’s furiends and let you play with all me’s toys and lay on me’s cat tree, and how do you repay me? By makin’ fun of me’s advanced wisdom. Hmmmpht 

 

Dezi sits atop the liberty cat tree looking at Raena laying on the top ledge

 

 

 

But sissy, it’s not makin’ fun ifin it’s the truth?. Mommy says we should always tell the truth, even ifin it hurts.

          Mommy also says, ifin ya’ can’t say anythin’ nice, don’t say anythin’ at all, Raena. Besides, me’s been really nice to you lately. Me even let you play with the new jitterbug all by yourself. 

 

Raena plays with the jitterbug

 

 

 

You let me, sissy? I’s thought you were just too, uh, too old mature and tired, yeah that’s it, to keep up with it. I’s whacked it over to ya’ several times, but all you did was sit there and watch. It was great fun. I’s think I’s still like the hexbugs better, but they get lost too easy. We still haven’t located the last one we played with. After retrievin’ him out from unner things 6 times the other day, mommy said ifin he got lost again, that was just too bad.

          Hmmmmpht Too mature and tired. Me just didn’t want your over stimulated whacky paw to hit me’s face. You get all beside yourself when ya’ chase those silly bugs Raena. As fur the hexbug, me’s purretty sure he’s somewhere unner the tables in the hallway. Least that’s where me heard his buzz last. Oh well, mommy will find him one day, she always does.

 

 

Raena plays with the jitterbug and packing paper

 

 

 

In the meantime sissy, least we still have the other hexbug we got fur Christmas and the new jitterbug. Let’s go see ifin mommy will let us play with ‘em again today. I’s know she still has human business to take care of, but surely she can spare a few hours minutes to play with us and to help us visit a few furiends. After all, this is gonna be another of those all nighters so she can get to the dentist office furst thing in the meownin’. I’s sure hope these ‘pointments get wrapped up sooner than later.

          Me too Raena. We could use any purrayers our furiends can spare that mommy can get this lease mess straightened out and get our lives back to some kind of normal. 

 

 

Raena reaches for the jitterbug toy under the crepe paper

I’s gonna get you bug.

 

 

 

Sure ‘nuff, sissy. See you all soon.

 

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

Chatting Cats: Kitties Don’t Go To Jail

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. What a day we’re havin’. Ya’ know, we watched some show over the holiday that talked ‘bout how some peeps seemed to have more trials than others. There was this counselor sayin’ that it wasn’t true, it just seemed like it. Let me tell ya’, it is true, and we’re the purrfect example of it.

 

Raena stands on the Liberty Cat tree while Dezi looks back at her from the ledge

 

 

 

          RaenaBelle, quit whinin’, it never helps anythin’. Mommy will figger it all out or go to jail, me’s sure of it. 

 

Jail sissy? Nopawdy said anythin’ ‘bout jail. What are you meowin’ ‘bout? 

 

Dezi looks up at Raena and hisses on the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          Well the lease recert peeps said that somepawdy at mommy’s doctors office wrote a letter to the ‘pawrtments that said the doctor didn’t know anythin’ ‘bout the meds she takes and hasn’t since 2011. That started a whole mess that means that mommy may have to pay extra rent fur all those years we’ve lived here. We can barely affurd to pay the rent we have now, we sure can’t affurd more rent. So, they may take mommy away to jail since she can’t pay. They already gave her an eviction notice this meownin’. Cuz of that letter, they said she’s not in compliance with our lease. 

 

Dezi lays on liberty tree and Raena on the small perch looking at each other in front of the door.

 

 

 

Is that why mommy’s so upset sissy? Are we gonna lose our ‘pawrtment? Will we go to jail with mommy? Does jail have cages? I’s don’t wanna live in a cage again?.

 

          Nope Raena, they don’t let kitties go to jail with their peeps. But, mommy just said she ain’t goin’ to jail, somethin’ ‘bout no debtors purrison. She said she didn’t know how she was gonna fix this, but that we’re not to worry ‘bout it. She says it’s fur mommy’s to worry ‘bout, not sweet little kitty girls. 

 

Guess that means she’s gonna be too busy today to play with us or help us visit our furiends, huh sissy?.

          Purrobably Raena, but at least we’ll still have a home to live in. Mommy said this is just the latest in a long line of bad news and purroblems she’s been given this month. Anyways, what do ya’ say we go play and let mommy take care of the business. 

 

Okay sissy, that sounds like a plan. Let me just tell mommy that I’s’ll be ready ifin she needs me to go anywhere with her. Ya’ know, to help her with her ‘purrtant business. 

 

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

Blest Sunday: A Very Special Thank You

MeOW  C’mon Raena, it’s Blest Sunday, and we have lots of things to meow ‘bout today. As you know, today is mommy’s birthday and Memorial day weekend. This month has just flown by.

          It sure has sissy. How old do ya’ think mommy is? Do ya’ reckon she’ll tell us this year? 

 

Dezi looks at camera while sitting on cat scratcher

 

 

 

All me knows Raena is that she’s old, as in wrinkles and gray hair and creakin’ bones old. Me’s not sure even she ‘members how old she is Raena. Ya’ know, they say the memory’s the furst thing to go. MOL 

 

Raena lays under pet cot from KH

 

 

 

          Oh sissy, I’s don’t think mommy would find that so funny. But, I’s do agree that mommy’s memory ain’t what it used to be. Anyways, I’s don’t really care how old she is, I’s just glad she’s our mommy. I’s do luvs her whole bunches. You know she always puts us furst. Y, she got some green papers fur her birthday and ended up spendin’ most of ‘em on us. Seems that Drs. Foster and Smith place had our Primal Freeze Dried Rabbit noms on sale fur half purrice. We don’t think we’ve ever seen ‘em that cheap anywhere. So, mommy used her special money to get us a few bags.

 

Birthday card from Ingrid, Pipo and Dalton

Fank you awnty Ingrid, Pipo and Dalton.

 

 

 

 

Yep Raena, we do have a good mommy, that’s fur sure. We do wanna say a meowsy big Fank you to awnty Vonda, awnty Susan, awnty Anonymous, and awnty Ingrid, Pipo and Dalton fur mommy’s birthday money. Mommy cried a lot of happy tears this past week.

 

Dezi and Raena sniff the maranta from Ellen for mommy A's birthday

 

 

 

          She did sissy. And then she cried some more when she got the box from my kitty godmommy awnty Ellen. Mommy luvs exotic house plants. Rumor is that she used to have a whole house full. Anyways, one of her favorite plants is the maranta, better known as the purrayer plant cuz it closes it’s leaves at night to resemble praying hands. When mommy opened up the box from awnty Ellen, she saw the purrettiest purrple leaves pawppin’ out all over the place. ‘Course we had to check it out too. We could smell somethin’ emanatin’ from inside that box that really caught our attention. Sure nuff, awnty Ellen hadn’t furgotten ‘bout us. We got one of those furtastic pieces of silvervine toast each. I’s ‘member when Sammy modeled his fur their posty. That awnty Ellen is so clever. Who would’a thought ‘bout makin’ silvervine toast? 

 

Dezi and Raena shiff the maranta gift from ellen for Mommy A's birthday

 

 

 

Me sure did enjoy that toasty Raena. You’re right ‘bout awnty Ellen. She is so very talented. We luv all her Made with Luv goodies. You slobbered all over your toasty and then tried to steal me’s one. Hmmmpht That wasn’t happenin’. MOL 

 

Raena rolls around on the silvervine toast from Ellen

 

 

 

          You were s’posed to share sissy. ‘Stead, you flopped your floofy big hiney down on your toasty and hid it.

 

Dezi rolls around on silvervine toast from Ellen

Oh divine silvervine, me luvs you.

 

 

 

You had your own Raena, and me didn’t want slobber all over me’s toasty piece. Fank you soooooooooooooo much fur includin’ us awnty Ellen. The silvervine toast was a big hit. 

 

Raena plays with silvervine toast

 

 

 

          Sure nuff. Fanky fank you awnty Ellen. Sissy, can you x’plain a bit ‘bout Memorial day? Peeps keep sayin’ happy memorial day and I’s don’t know what’s so happy ‘bout it. 

 

Dezi plays with silvervine toast from Ellen

 

 

 

Yeah Raena, me doesn’t get the happy pawrt either, me thinks peeps just don’t know what else to say. Memorial day is the day set aside to pay homage to those men, women and anipals that died while serving in the military. Me knows fur sure, that we ‘member them and their families every single day. Ifin not fur them, our country and way of life wouldn’t exist. The freedoms we have, wouldn’t exist. This country is great because of those willing to fight and die to make it so. No where else in this world has the freedoms and rights that the U.S. does. And shame on those who want to tear it down. The next time you complain about the government or somebody saying/posting something you don’t like or agree with, remember, you have the right to do that because someone died to make it so.

          I’s sure am fanky fankful fur all those who gave their lives so we could live in such a pawsum country sissy. I’s so fanky fankful fur their families who suffered loss, fur the children who lost mothers or fathers to wars on distant shores. Sometimes peeps furget, the soldier serving and fighting should be at the top of our purrayer list, but their family serves as well. So, to all those soldiers who never came home, we salute you and purromiss not to take the freedoms your lives bought us fur granted.

Yep Raena, we are blest to have been born in the U.S. and mommy and me join you in saluting each and every soldier. Thank you fur your service and your sacrifice. And to all those Vets and currently serving, we fank you as well. God Bless America. 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.

Me couldn’t have meowed it better Raena. C’mon, let’s go give mommy some more birthday cuddles. 

 

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