Hey…HEY IS ANYPAWDY OUT THERE??? It’s Me RaenaBelle!!! (Raena looks around for Dezi and then towards the window as a flash of lightning brightens up the room.) Sissy!!! I’s not sure ifin anypawdy can hear me over all these thunder boomers and storms. Sissy? Sissy, where are you?
Leave me alone Raena. Me’s checkin’ unner the bed fur intruders. Don’t you have somethin’ you’re s’posed to be gettin’ ready fur?
I’s do sissy. The day’s furinally here. we’re goin’ to town to get mommy’s purrmanent dentures. Somepawdy asked on facebook what we meant, so I’s purrobably oughtta x’plain a bit. By purrmanent, we mean the final denture plate that’ll take the place of these temps she’s been wearin’ fur 6 months. There’s no screws in mommy’s mouth and she’ll still take her teethies out to brush ‘em and all. So technically, they’re not purrmanent. ‘Course nuffin’ with a 6 month warranty is purrmanent, right? But, they’ll be purrmanent fur mommy cuz there’s no way we’d be able to affurd another pair, so they’re just gonna have to last.
(Meowing from UTB) Mommy’ll take good care of ‘em Raena. Don’t you worry ‘bout that. Are you ready fur your ‘pointment?
Mine’s ‘pointment? (Raena wipes at her eyes) I’s don’t have any ‘pointments. I’s just goin’ with mommy cuz she might need me.
Oh, yeah. Mmmhuh, sure. Nope, no ‘pointments fur RaenaBelle.
What ‘pointment did you think I’s had sissy?
(Mumbling under her breath from under the bed) Nuffin’ Raena. Me was just thinkin’ out loud is all. Ya’ know, ‘bout your eyes. Me knows mommy had wanted to have those looked at, she just needed to pay our balance at the V E T’s down a little so she could affurd to have you checked out.
Well, I’s don’t wanna go to the V E T’s office. I’s gonna hope we’re at mommy’s dental place all day so there’s no time to go to the V E T. Besides, don’t you think mommy’s gonna wanna hurry home knowin’ how scared you’ll be here by yourself with all these storms?
How many times does me have to tell ya’ Raena, me’s not scared. Me’s checkin’ fur intruders!!! Anyways, we’ll just ask all our furiends to keep all of us in their purrayers today. Ya’ know, that mommy gets purropurr fittin’ and aesthetically purrleasin’ teethies. And, that ya’ll will be safe out in the storms, ‘specially since mommy didn’t get any sleep last night; and that me will be safe here waitin’ on ya’ll to come home. And, that whatever’s wrong with your eyes will be easily fixed and not cost a lot. It’s gonna kill mommy to not clean your eyes all day. Ya’ know, CK once said your eyes looked pawsum, she didn’t know what we were meowin’ ‘bout. We had to tell her that mommy purrobably cleans those things elebenty billion times a day, and edits out the bad like a blemish.
Hmmmmpht I’s know. Mommy’s constantly wipin’ mine’s eyes. Altho’, it does help me see better when she does. I’s fanky fankful mommy cares enuff to take care of me like that. I’s not sure she’s gonna be noticin’ mine’s eyes much today tho’. She didn’t get much sleep the night befur either cuz of all the storms. So, two days without sleep at her age…we’ll be lucky ifin she doesn’t doze off while waitin’ on her teethies. She says they want her there early in case it takes a few tries to get her teethies right. I’s can’t wait fur when we take fotos and show off her new smile. Altho’ it purrobably won’t be tomorrow. I’s see a long nap and lots of cuddles in our near future.
(Dezi meows quietly from under the bed while a loud clap of thunder booms over head) Me sure hopes the storm passes soon so me can join the cuddles on the bed ‘stead of unner it.
(Raena jumps on the cat tree and waits for mommy to put her harness on and strap her into the stroller. She meowmbles) Guess we won’t be visitin’ our furiends again today. Hmmmmpht We’s better start visitin’ soon or they’ll furget all ‘bout us.
Till the next time……………………………………..Be Blest!!!

Meowllo everypawdy, hope you had a great weekend. It’s another Miserable Monday here and let me tell you, we sure had a storm last night. Ya know da skies have been gray and sunless furever now, but at least da rains have been quiet da last few days. And then outta nowhere last night da thunder and lightnin’ started up and scared da b-jeebies outta me.
There we was, layin’ in bed all cuddled up da way mommy and me do. Ya’ know mommy can’t sleep without a kitty cuddled up next to her purrin’ her a lullaby. And me and sis Lexi used to purr in unison. Mommy says it was kinda like havin’ a vibratin’ bed. Anyways, me’s getting’ off track here, let’s get back to da storm of da century. So there we was all cuddled up and suddenly, BOOM gRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrUMBLE It was so loud even mommy jumped. Me couldn’t slink or scamper off da bed and under it fast enuff. But me had purrlenty of light to see by, cuz lightnin’ came through da black bedroom curtains and lit up da whole room. Well mommy began to coo at me from atop da bed while me shook in me’s fur under da bed. She wanted me back up on da bed with her. Like dat was gonna happen. As long as da sky was grumblin’, me was gonna stay put……….safely UTB (under the bed). Mommy calls me da Queen of Slink. She says fur a big kitty me can sure flatten out fast enuff.
Now let me tell you somethin’ you may not know about me’s mommy. She’s a clever one. She doesn’t like to take no fur an answer and won’t ifin she can help it. So there me was shakin’ in me’s fur and mommy’s cooin’ and nothing’s happening. So she begins to whine. You know, “Dezi, I Neeeeeeeed you. Baby, I can’t sleep without you. Dezi, it’s okay, I won’t let anything or anybody hurt you, come on back up here on the bed with mommy.” Yeah, just how did she plan on purrtectin’ me while she slept? Was she gonna snore dat storm away? Me wasn’t goin’ anywhere. UTB was just fine with me.
After what seemed like furever me heard mommy softly snifflin’. Hmmmmm Me cocked me’s head and thought a minute. Somethin’ must be wrong. Mommy’s cryin’. So me made da decision to go and check on her. Me bravely crouched low to da ground and slinked out from under da bed and looked up from da floor. Me couldn’t see a thing. So me hurried up da steps and jumped over to mommy’s chest and stuck me’s face in hers. Meow? What’s wrong mommy, me asked. ‘Tween da sniffles mommy went on about how sis Lexi wouldn’t have left her alone just cuz of some storm and how me has to be her big girl now, and how she neeeeeeds me and luuuuuuvs me and would never let me go. Me lissened intently and purred luvvingly. And then when da next thunder boomer hit…………me scurried back UTB. From me’s spot UTB me meowed to mommy, “Remember mommy, me’s da Queen of Slink and…me Ain’t sis Lexi.”
We didn’t get much sleep last night, but fur now da storm has ended and it’s quietly mistin’ so me’s out hangin’ with mommy and makin’ her happy. We’ll be by to see you all just as soon as we can. And mommy wants me to say thank you to everypawdy. She feels better knowin’ she’s not so old fashioned after all. It’s been a long time since she applied fur a job so she didn’t know ifin things had changed or not.
Where do you (your kitties) hide when thunder boomers start?
