Chatting Cats: There’s No Stress Here

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle, live from the chaotic Three Belles Ranch. (The skies rumble and groan and cause the floors and windows to vibrate.) Hey sissy, wait up. Whare are you goin’, It’s just a little winter storm. Mommy says anytime the weather has such drastic extremes from highs to lows or lows to highs, a storm is sure to follow. Guess you were right, those purretty spring days are gone. 

 

Raena lays on floor

 

 

 

          Yeah Raena, me doesn’t like the storms outside, but storm mommy’s  on the loose inside. Me’s not sure which is worse. MOL  

 

Ain’t that the truth sissy. I’s like break times bestest, when mommy sits down and gives us extra luvvins. Ya’ know, we read that February is Nat’l. Responsible Pet Owner month. That got us to thinkin’ ‘bout what that really means. Ya’ know, we all know respawnsible pet owners purrmote spay/neuter, and the over all health of their kitties and woofies. It means to feed us appropriate foods and keep us safe. But what ‘bout our emotional health; ‘specially durin’ stressful times like storms or packin’ up to move?  

 

          It doesn’t even have to be somethin’ that big Raena. You know us kitties aren’t always big fans of change. Just rearrangin’ the furniture is enuff to really stress us out. Mommy says that’s one of the reasons she rearranges what she can offen. She says desensitizin’ us is one way to help keep our stress levels down when somethin’ big happens.

Really sissy? That’s why she does that? I’s just thought she was bored. MOL 

 

          That’s purrobably true too Raena. Mommy does say that after a while of lookin’ at the same old same old, the walls start closin’ in. Me’s never seen the walls move, but ifin mommy says so, they must. 

 

I’s didn’t know our walls moved sissy. I’s saw somethin’ like that on the teevee the other day; it was scary. I’s glad mommy moves things ‘round so we don’t get squooshed. (Raena cleans her toe beans) Flat cats would take on a whole new meanin’. MOL 

 

Raena bathes, toe beans

 

 

 

 

          Funny Raena, you’re a real comedi-cat. 

  

Fanky fanks sissy. Do ya’ think I’s could get a gig as a stand up comedi-cat? (Dezi rolls her eyes) Anyways…We’ve written several Service Cat postys on movin’ and remodelin’ with kitties and settin’ up a Decompression Room to keep stress levels down. But, we don’t really have the room fur that, and we really need to be with mommy. Ya’ know, just in case she needs us. 

 

          And just cuz we don’t wanna be away from her Raena. We’re far less stressed when we can be with mommy than when we’re sepurrated from her. ‘Course a good roll on a pawsum nip toy never hurts either.

 

Dezi rolls around on catnip toys

 

 

 

That’s true too sissy. So, mommy takin’ sit down breaks to give us that extra luvvins is also how we all relieve the stress. Which of course, helps our emotional health. We’re cuddle cats, lap cats, snuggle buddies, whatever ya’ call kitties who be all up in the humans business all the time. But, even ifin your kitty is totally the opposite, he/she still needs ya’ to take care of his/her emotional health. 

  

          Maybe even more so Raena, after all the opposite of us would be a kitty who lives with a lot of stress and fear in their lives already.  

 

You’re right sissy, I’s didn’t even think ‘bout that. Fur those kitties, speakin’ calmly and tellin’ ‘em what’s goin’ on and reassurin’ ’em that they’re still your nummer one is the bestest way to help them; besides a Decompression Room. 

 

          Even with it Raena. Mommy believes that on some level we totally unnerstand, and that tellin’ us what’s goin’ on each step of the way helps keep us calm.   

 

Raena gets lap lovingI’s luvs you mommy.

 

 

 

‘Course we unnerstand her sissy. Hmmmmpht We are cats after all. Looks like mommy’s thru with her break, so let’s go see ifin we can help. Sooner or later she’s gonna have to open the door to the furbidden room (closet). I’s gotta hone mine’s sneaky skills to get in there and explore.

Chatting Cats: You Won, Just Click Here

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. Hold on just a minute, I’s checkin’ our emails. I’s thought I’s saw somethin’ here a minute ago…now where did that email go?. (Raena searches the email subject lines and finally sees one that says “you’ve won”)  Here it is mommy, open that one. Read it to me mommy, read it now. (Mommy A slowly and sarcastically reads the email to Raena.)  WooHoo!!! Our troubles are over!!! We’re rich sissy!!! We’re rich mommy!!! We can have as many scratchers and cat trees as we want now. (Raena zooms thru the house and up the cat tree and back down. Raena zooms thru the house and knocks a few knick knacks from their spots onto the floor. She finally runs back to the living room and jumps up on the boxes behind the chair) We’ve won the New Zealand lotto!!! Mommy, how many dollars is a million pounds? What are we gonna buy furst? I’s think we should buy a real Three Belles Ranch and make lots of cat houses so we can save all the kitties who need a home. Sissy, what do want to buy furst?  

 

Raena stands on boxes in hallway looking back

 

 

 

          Uh Raena…we don’t play the lotto. We fur sure don’t play the New Zealand lotto. That’s a scam.  

 

A scam? No sissy, they didn’t ask fur anythin’. They just need us to click this link. Hurry mommy, click it fast. We don’t want ‘em givin’ our money away to somepawdy else. 

 

Raena stands on boxes in hallway - selfie

 

 

 

          RaenaBelle, you know mommy ain’t gonna click that link. There’s a rule, ifin it sounds to good to be true, then it purrobably is. And trust me, us winnin’ a lottery we don’t even play is way too good to be true.  

 

But sissy…We got an email?. Surely they wouldn’t lie to us?.  

 

          Well Raena, that’s one of the hard lessons you have to learn ‘bout life.. Just cuz you don’t lie, doesn’t mean everypawdy else on the planet tells the truth. There are scammers ‘round every corner. That’s why we’re so fankful fur all our furiends. They’re the bright light amidst all the crazy.   

 

Dezi lays atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

So, we’re not gettin’ a million pounds? We can’t really buy a ranch or a bunch of scratchers?  

 

          No Raena, we’re not gettin’ a million pounds. We’re not buyin’ a ranch and we’re not buyin’ a house full of scratchers. Altho’ we kind’a already have a house full of scratchers. 

 

Dezi lays on cat scratcher

 

 

 

Yeah, but most of those are worn out; or you hurled on ‘em.  

 

          Not all of ‘em Raena. Besides, we still have our sisal scratchers. They’re still in great shape. And mommy got us the new scratcher lounger from the green papers we got fur Christmas. 

 

Oooooh Sissy, meowin’ of gifts, did you see what came in the mail yesfurday? We got not one, but two new Cat Dancers. Mommy found a 2 pack at Wally world. Ya’ know our Jewish furiends from the J-Cats didn’t even know what it was. 

 

Raena plays with the Cat DancerI’s luvved the cat dancer when I’s furst came here.

 

 

 

          Yeah Raena, me ‘members me’s furst Cat Dancer. They used to be more ‘spensive and mommy grumbled ‘bout payin’ so much fur a few pieces of rolled up papers on the end of a wire. But once she saw how much fun it was fur me, she said it was priceless. ‘Course, that didn’t stop her lookin’ fur a bargain when it came to buyin’ a new one. Me just can’t wait to play with it. 

 

Dezi whacks the Cat Dancer from the liberty Cat tree

 

 

 

Me too sissy.  

 

          Well, don’t break this one. Me doesn’t even know how you could break a metal wire.   

 

Hmmmmpht  I’s don’t recall that sissy. And, ifin I’s don’t recall it, it didn’t happen.  

 

Raena sits on scratcher in front of the tv

 

 

 

          Let me guess, you heard that on teevee? Cuz you know, ifin the evidence shows you’re guilty then you’re guilty whether you ‘member it or not. 

   

Evidence? There ain’t no evidence sissy. One day we woke up and it was just broken. You could’a broke it yourself and now you’re tryin’ to blame it on me.

 

          Sure Raena. Me had it fur a whole year befur you came and two days after your arrival it magically breaks? Just like all our electronic toys. You’re just hard on toys, that’s all. 

 

Raena walks on boxes in hallway Gotta go…

 

 

 

Well at least I’s don’t hurl on everythin’ sissy. That’s so gross. Anyways, ifin we’re not gettin’ that lotto money, then all mine’s plans fur the day are shot. I’s so wanted to go shoppin’. Hmmmpht  I’s guess we better finish our brekky.  

 

Do you play the lotto?

Blest Sunday: Cuddles, Love And Friends

Dezi:  MeOW  C’mon RaenaBelle, it’s time fur our Blest Sunday posty. (Dezi looks around but doesn’t see Raena) Raena, where are you? C’mon, we don’t have all day. 

 

Dezi sits on the scratcher watching the jitterbug

 

 

 

          Raena:  ‘Course we do sissy, it’s not like we have a schedule we have to keep. It’s our bloggy, so we can make or break any of the rules we want too.

Dezi:  So you wanna be known as Raena the rule breaker? 

 

          Raena:  No sissy, but where are these rules you’re meowin’ ‘bout? 

 

Dezi lays in wheelchair

 

 

 

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. Thank you fur bein’ Blessings in ours. 

 

          Raena:  Don’t furget Sunday Selfies with the Kitties Blue, sissy. Sissy? Sissy? 

 

Dezi gets loving while laying in mommy's lap

 

 

 

Dezi:  (Dezi meows from mommy’s lap)  Me’s turn fur lap luvvin’ cuddles furst Raena.
