Chatting Cats: And The Catastrophes Just Keep Coming

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We got word this meownin’ from the last of our furiends in the path of those terrible hurricanes; that all are safe. What a relief!!! Seems there’s been some damage to purr-opurrty, but no damage to the peeps or anipals.

 

 Dezi leaves the chair

Ah Kittens!!! It’s the lawn crew. Better go check UTB fur intruders.

 

 

          (Dezi meows from down the hall because she heard the lawn crew and went to check fur intruders UTB <under the bed>) Me was so happy to hear that our furiends were safe Raena. We are so blest to have so many wonderful purrayin’ furiends.

 

 Raena lays on chair back looking down the hall

 

 

We sure are sissy. There’s gonna be a lot of clean up, repairs and relocatin’, but at least our furiends are still together and safe. So many peeps and anipals got separated in these storms. We’re purrayin’ really hard that everypawdy is reunited soon.

 

          (Still meowing from UTB) That we are Raena, that we are. What were you and mommy doin’ with the hood up on the car yesfurday?

Oh sissy, mommy’s so furustrated. We had to go to the store to get some more taters fur mommy and some more of that sticky stuffs to keep her teethies in her mouth. When we got home, we heard this bubblin’ and gurglin’ sound and then suddenly without any warnin’, the car started steamin’. ‘Pawrently water and somethin’ called coolant splattered everywhere and dumped out a puddle under the car. Mommy popped open the hood to take a look. (Raena rolls her eyes and snickers) Like she actually knew what she was lookin’ at. MOL  Mommy could see that most everything was wet. She shook her head and started cryin’. She told me how tired she was as she strolled me back to the house. I’s not sure mommy has much fight left in her sissy. We just can’t ever seem to get ahead of our own little catastrophes. I’s say, shame on that stinky car fur breakin’ again.

 

          (Dezi meows from the bedroom door as the lawn crew has moved to the other side of the purr-opurrty and quieted a bit) Well Raena, there is one up side to the car breakin’. Mommy had to cancel your VET ‘pointment and her teeth relinin’ ‘pointment. Without a car, she can’t very well get to Ardmore.

Well sissy, while I’s might not wanna go to the VET, I’s do know that it’s necessary sometimes. And fur sure, mommy needs to be able to get to the dentist office. We need to purray fur mommy and the car. I’s don’t know what mommy’s gonna do ‘bout the car, but she’s gotta figger out a way to have it checked out so we can at least know what it would cost to fix it. With the wheelchair broke and now the car too, we’re purretty much house bound. I’s purretty sure mommy’s depression is at an all time high.

 

 

 Dezi lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

          (Dezi meows from behind mommy’s sitting chair as the lawn crew is quiet and must be on a break) Me agrees Raena. Me just doesn’t unnerstand why things happen the way they do?. (Hearing the lawn crew start up again, Dezi runs back UTB and meows over her shoulder) Why don’t you give mommy some extra luvvin’ Raena. Me will take over when the lawn crew leaves.

 

Raena lays in mommy's lap and gets loving

Ain’t nuffin’ better than mommy luvvin’.

 

 

I’s will sissy. But, you really need to get a grip. The lawn crew can’t get to you. You know mommy would never let anypawdy or anythin’ hurt you. I’s gonna go get some mommy luvvin’ now. When you decide to come out from UTB, maybe we can play.

 

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

Chatting Cats: Raena’s Mommy and Me Day Out

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. What’s that ya say? Why is it me here in the lead today? Well, the lawn crew’s here, so sis Dezi be hidin’ UTB.

 

 Raena stands on perch and looks out door

 

          (Dezi meows loudly from UTB) Me’s not hidin’, Raena. Me’scheckin’ fur dust bunnies. You know we have that big inspection today. Mommy just ‘bout killed herself this week gettin’ ready fur it. 

 

Raena looks outside from the small perch

Uh, yeah, okay sissy. Whatever you say. I’s will admit this purrticular inspection is more furustratin’ than most. What with the furst notice comin’ 2 weeks ago and statin’ it was fur cleanliness, occupied dwellin’, smoke alarm check, filter change, and extermination. That ‘bout covers it all doesn’t it? Then we get another notice last week but this time, the only things checked was Capital assessment and annual inspection. Like we want a bunch of bankers traipsin’ thru our ‘pawrtment. 

 

 Dezi hides in bedroom and Raena heads down hall to her

 

          (Dezi meows loudly from the bedroom door) Well Raena, like it or not, want it or not, so long as we have ample notice and it’s all on the same day at the same time, there’s nuffin’ we can do ‘bout it.

 

 Raena laying in stroller at dentist

Ya’ can’t see me very well, but that’s cuz I’s behavin’ in mine’s stroller.

 

You’re purrobably right sissy. Anyways, I’s wanted to meow all ‘bout mine’s trip to Petco and Wally world on mine’s Gotchaday. What a pawsum day mommy and me had. It started early that day with mommy singin’ the gotchaday song to me and then tellin’ me we were havin’ a special mommy and me day out. Befur ya’ ask, the Gotchaday song is just somethin’ mommy made up. She does that a lot ya’ know. We just luvs it when mommy sings to us. After a quick brekky, mommy suited me up and off we went. I’s meowed at mommy a bit and asked to ride in her lap once we got on the highway. Guess what? She let me!!! It was so nice to sit in mommy’s lap and look out the windows at all the cars and trees. Let me tell ya’, there’s a lot of trees ‘round here.

Another not so good foto of me behavin’ purropurr like.

 

We furinally got to our furst stop, the dentist office. Mommy had a ‘pointment to get a quote fur the remainin’ work she needs done. We were there fur 45 minutes befur somepawdy came out and started talkin’ to mommy. Seems they asked what kind of animal I’s was. I’s know I’s was bein’ well behaved, but come on, surely I’s do look like a cat. Anyways, mommy replied, “She’s my Service Cat. She alerts before I pass out.” To which the lady told mommy, that the dentist was allergic to cats and wouldn’t be able to examine her with me there. Mommy told her that me and my stroller could sit in the corner of the room or at the door, but that I was a medically necessary Service cat and that she couldn’t discriminate against mommy on the basis of her health or steps she takes to accommodate it. The lady then suggested mommy lock me in the car. Ya’ know, outside? Where it was over 90 degrees befur the humidity.

 

Raena plays on cat scratchers at Petco

I’s could tell mommy was getting’ a little hot unner the collar, cuz her tone of voice changed and she started spoutin’ laws ‘bout discrimination and how it was illegal to leave any animal unattended. And, how they couldn’t legally ask me to leave so long as me was behavin’ purropurrly and not bein’ obtrusive; and sayin’ this was the most ridiculous thing she’d ever heard. Ifin the dentist was allergic to cats, he was gonna have just as much trouble examining mommy without me cuz she was covered in cat fur. ‘Member where I’s sat on the way to her ‘pointment? Of course by this point, mommy didn’t want that dentist workin’ on her fur nuffin’, but she wanted to make her point ‘bout discrimination. Of course, they told us to just leave. I’s was so purroud of mommy. She never yelled or raised her voice. She just stated the facts and made her point. But, I’s knew she was angry when we left. She said she was so glad I’s didn’t unnerstand all that happened. She members a time in this country when landlords could discriminate against peeps with kids.

 

          (Dezi meows from UTB) Yep Raena, mommy just hates ignorance.

 

 Raena looks around from cat scratchers at petco

 

Anyways, mommy bein’ the pawsum mommy she is, put on her happy face and to Petco we went. What a time I’s had. I’s got to walk ‘round all the kitty scratchers and platfurms. And did you know they have a big plastic see thru box with birdies inside? OMC  You shoulda seen all the birdies. There was blue ones, yellow ones, and even some green ones. I’s never seen birdies that colorful befur. The birdies that hang ‘round here are all brown or black. I’s couldn’t seem to find the way in to that box, so I’s didn’t get to play with the birdies. Trust me, it wasn’t fur a lack of tryin’. And then, mommy took me over to see real live mouseys. I’s never seen a real live mousey befur. I’s do believe they’re much bigger than the ones we usually play with. And fur sure their tails are longer. Unfurtunately, I’s couldn’t get into their box to play either. What’s up with that? Temptin’ us kitties like that and not an accessible box anywhere.

 

 Raena checks out the birds at petco

Oh MeOW look’it all those birdies!!!

 

Then, mommy took me over to the treat aisle and let me pick out some of our favorites to share with sis Dezi. Mommy chatted with some other humans that were shoppin’ fur their kitties too. There was a lady with 2 legged kiddos that wanted to see me. That’s right, I’s was the center of attention. And, I’s luvved every minute of it. We furinally headed out fur Wally world and even more fun. As always, lots of peeps stared and pointed while I’s remained calm and ever the purrfect Service kitty. When we got to the checkout line, I’s suddenly smelled that furmiliar smell and stood up and started meowin’ fur mommy to sit down. All the excitement of the day had mommy on the verge of passin’ out. Mommy took a seat and waited and breathed tryin’ to get it to pass. I’s sat and watched her patiently till it was all over and we could leave. Mommy loaded us up and off we went.

Wha’d’ya’ mean I’s can’t get in there to play?

 

We got out on the highway and I’s meowed to mommy that I’s wanted to ride in her lap again. Peeps look at us so funny like when they try to pass us and see me standin’ there lookin’ at ‘em. You’d think they’d never seen a kitty befur. We were movin’ right along when all of a sudden the car started beepin’ at us. I’s could feel mommy panic a little as she said, “Oh No. That’s our tire light. I sure hope we don’t get a flat tire. Let’s say a little prayer Raena.” Fur those of ya’ not furmiliar with where we live, we live in no man’s land. There’s nuffin’ but trees and a long stretch of lonliness ‘tween here and Ardmore. Fanky fanks, we made it home and had the tires checked befur even stoppin’ at the house. Mommy had done panicked fur nuffin’. Only one of the tires was low, and only by ‘bout 2 pounds. I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s don’t unnerstand any of that, but the tire guy said it wasn’t really anythin’ to worry ‘bout. ‘Pawrently tires lose air just cuz of the weather changes. 

 

 Raena looks at the mice and rats at petco

Those don’t look nuffin’ like da mouseys we have at home mommy.

 

          (Dezi looks down the hall from the bedroom door having not heard the lawn crew for a few minutes and meows) Me’s glad you and mommy had a fun day out Raena. Me was sure happy to see the treats ya’ll brought back. And even tho’ mommy had to find another dentist, we are really blest.

 

 Raena plays on cat scratchers at petco

Yep sissy, we are indeed. I’s glad you and mommy had fun too. I’s can’t wait to go again. I’s hear mommy has a ‘pointment next week with the new dentist. (Raena gets on the perch and looks out the door and meows to Dezi looking on from the bedroom door) Hey sissy, the lawn crew’s gone. Let’s finish brekky and go play.

That’s No Hog, It’s Thunder!!!

HEY!!! IS ANYPAWDY OUT THERE? IT’S ME, RAENABELLE!!! (Raena meows at the top of her lungs) Mommy, I’s don’t think they can hear me over the thunder boomers. Are they ever gonna stop? At furst, I’s thought somepawdy had left their motercycle runnin’ full blast. But then the whole room lit up with that lightnin’ stuffs, and I’s knew it wasn’t no “Hog”. I’s really tired of it mommy. We haven’t got to visit any of our furiends all week long. And where’s sissy? Sissyyyyyyyyyyyy…Sissy!!! Where are you? I’s wanna play, sissy. Purrlease come out and play with me.

 

 Raena looks outside from the small perch

Isn’t this sunshine bootyful? It lasted a whole 30 minutes.

 

          (Dezi meows back from UTB in the bedroom) Me’s bein’ safe Raena. Didn’t you hear mommy talkin’ ‘bout all the tornadoes and hail? The weather guesser said cars, outside animals, roofs and trailer houses WOULD be damaged!!! Don’t you ‘member mommy cryin’ and us purrayin’ fur all the animals what live outside?

 

 Dezi lays in the house on the Liberty cat tree

 

Of course I’s ‘member. But what do I’s know ‘bout hail and damagin’ winds? All I’s know ‘bout is that wet stuffs. Did you see mommy and me tryin’ to get in the house befur we got soaked? I’s was so x’cited to see the sunshine peekin’ thru the clouds yesfurday. I’s thought it was a great oppurrtunity to go fur a nice stroll and get some furesh air. And I’s couldn’t wait to wear mine’s new harness. Did you see me? I’s grew into it so nicely. It’s a purrfect fit now. Altho’ mommy says I’s not thru growin’ and will purrobably have to get a bigger one next year. Anyways, did you see me? Didn’t I’s look adorable? 

 

 Raena sits on butterfly scratcher in harness

 

          (Dezi meowmbles from UTB) Perrfect fit, uh huh. Adorable, sure thing. (Meowing loudly now) You looked real cute hunkerin’ down in the stroller while mommy was tryin’ to get ya’ll back in the house befur ya’ both got struck by lightnin’.

 

 Raena looks out from the stroller

Who knew the clouds could cry that hard without any warnin’? One minute we were baskin’ in the sunshine and the next we were runnin’ fur our lives in the dark. (Raena shakes her head) Hey Dezi, ya’ know that Hooligan in a Can prize you won from Cat Scouts? I’s luvved it. Fanky fanks fur sharin’ with me.

Dezi, sniffs the Silvervine bag

 

          Sure Raena. There was purrlenty of goodies to share. Me luvs bein’ a Cat Scout. That trip to the Kentucky Derby was a blast. And who knew me could pick the winner? Me chose me’s horsey cuz we’re always dreamin’ up ways to help mommy, so me thought Always Dreamin’ was a great name. Me fanked Den Master fur havin’ such a pawsum give away and sendin’ such a pawtastic purrize. Me can’t wait to try that grilled tuna fillet. Me can smell it thru the package, and it smells divine.

 

 Raena sniffs the bags of nip, vine and valerian from Derby prize

 

It sure does sissy. But I’s really luvved the smells comin’ from those smaller bags. Ya’ know, the ones mommy said was silvervine, valerian and nip? I’s sure wish I’s could be a Cat Scout.

 

 Dezi rolls with chirpy bird from the hooligan in a can Cat Scout Derby prize

 

          Well Raena, maybe after you grow up a bit more mommy will let you join. Right now, me’s the only Scout in the furmily, and me likes it that way just fine. (Dezi meows under her breath) Me needs some time away from You, even ifin it’s just virtual. (Dezi snickers

 

 Raena plays with refillable lobster from hooligan in a can prize

 

Well sissy, enjoy your time. I’s gonna keep askin’ mommy. At some point she’s gotta get tired of hearin’ it and let me join. In the mean time, I’s gonna go play with our new chirpy bird. Oh and link up with the Pet Parade too.

          Hopefully the storms will clear up soon and we’ll be able to visit our furiends. The power has flashed off and on all week, and mommy won’t turn the catputer on when that’s happenin’, so me sure hopes that stuffs stops soon. We’re thinkin’ ‘bout all our furiends even tho’ we can’t get by to visit with ya’. You go play Raena and leave me alone, so me can take a nap.

Chatting Cats: Embarrassing, Scary and Delicious

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We sure do wanna fank you all fur your luv and suppurrt. Mommy says it may have been a year since Lexi left her, but it feels like yesfurday. Most of ya’ unnerstand dat feelin’; and we just want you to know, you’re not alone. Anyways, besides the blues, mommy’s also been feelin’ a little out of sorts and extra achy. At furst she just thought it was cuz of the crazy weather and her teeth purroblems. But she’s had a horse and a frog wagin’ war in her throat lately, and coughin’ too. Now I’s not know how a frog much less a horsey can fit in mommy’s throat, but she sure sounds funny when she talks.

 

 Dezi lays on the Liberty Cat Tree

 

          Raena, don’t make fun of mommy. That’s not nice.

 

Come on sissy, you know she sounds funny. You said so yourself.

 

          That’s different. Me was talkin’ to you in purr-ivate. Me wasn’t tellin’ the world.

 

 Dezi stand on the house on the Liberty Cat tree

 

Oh purrlease, you know we blab everythin’. Anyways, when we went to see mommy’s doctor yesfurday, he wasn’t sure he believed that mommy was sick. He thought she was just havin’ some allergy and sinus issues. So some lady came in and stole some of mommy’s bloods. You know, they didn’t shave her neck or nuffin’. They just stuck somethin’ in her finger and it was all over. Them VETs’ could learn a little somethin’ ’bout blood stealin’. You know, mommy be a redheaded white woman, but when they stuck her, she was a redheaded ghosty. I’s was meowin’ and goin’ crazy pants inside mine’s stroller. Mommy dropped her head ‘tween her knees and Doc came in and asked what all the fuss was ‘bout. He took one look at mommy and ran over and held her in the chair. After a hunnerd few minutes, mommy raised her head, and she was back to bein’ mine’s redheaded white mommy and not mine’s ghosty mommy. ‘Course, I’s had calmed down once Doc came in the room to help mommy, so I’s laid peacefully in the stroller lissenin’ to mommy and Doc talk.

 

Raena lays in the stroller

They chatted ‘bout me and how things have changed fur the worse in medicine, and a little ‘bout pawlitics while waitin’ fur those blood test results. Furinally there was a knock on the door and the blood stealin’ thief appeared and handed Doc a piece of paper. He turned and looked at mommy and said, “How are you still walking around?” Seems mommy’s body be fightin’ the infection and sicks like crazy. So he faxed a script fur another antibiotic over to the furmacy and we all said our goodbyes and see ya’ laters. And with that mommy and me headed out to said furmacy to get mommy’s medicine.

 

 Dezi checks out Raena in her new harness

 

Things were goin’ purretty good till we left the furmacy and got to the car. Mommy just missed the step off the curb and down we went. Yep, she was holdin’ on to the stroller, so I’s tumbled over too. Mommy says she was so embarrassed. There she lay on the pavement, with piddle pads flyin’ everywhere. (we keep a few in the bottom of the stroller, just in case) I’s don’t know ‘bout this embarrassin’, but it sure nuff was scary. Mommy recovered like any good kitty would. She looked ‘round and pulled herself up with the help of the car. Yes, of course she pulled me up too. And then we sashayed over to the car door to load up like nuffin’ ever happened.

 

 Raena lays on top of the Liberty Cat Tree

 

When we got loaded in the car, mommy started cryin’ and ‘pawlogized fur lettin’ me fall. I’s was fine. I’s was just glad mommy was okay too. She’s a little extra bruised up, but all in all, she’s okay. After all that excitement, we headed straight fur home. Without even thinkin’, mommy popped her furst antibiotic dose in her mouth and swallowed it down. Then she went online to look it up. Seems, Cipro is used to treat serious infections; but it has some purretty scary side effects. So, we sure would purreciate any purrayers you can spare.

 

 Dezi checks out the AeroGarden

‘Member these cute little lettuce plants?

 

Now, do ya’ll wanna hear somethin’ cool? Mommy had her furst grown by her own hands salad this week. Yep, she was furinally able to harvest enuff leaves to make a salad. She said it was amazin’. But she also thinks she must be doin’ somethin’ wrong, cuz our garden doesn’t look or yield as much as the ones on the AeroGarden site.

 

 AeroGarden Lettuce Leaves

Check out those salad leaves fresh from the AeroGarden

 

          Yeah Raena, you’re right. But we did tell mommy that fur her furst time, she did a great job. Her lettuce pods have quite a few little baby sprouts that should eventually turn into more salad leaves. She’s been readin’ up and thinks her next growin’ venture should be Romaine. Most of the reviews talk ‘bout how quickly the Romaine grows.

 

I’s can’t wait sissy. I’s a really good helper. I’s tried to help mommy pick leaves fur her salad, but she kept shooin’ me away. I’s don’t know why she didn’t want mine’s help, do you?

 

          Me doesn’t know Raena. Ya’ reckon it could have somethin’ to do with the fact that you tried to eat a few? 

 

Who? Me? I’s was just makin’ sure they were ready, and not poison. You know, like a taste tester.

 

          A taste tester? Yeah right. Whatever. Anyways, let’s wrap this up and go play.

 

 Pet Parade Blog Hop Badge

 

Okay sissy. Furst we need to link up with Rascal, Rocco and their pawsum co-hosts fur the weekly Pet Parade. We’ll be ‘round to visit when we can. Ya’ know, we gotta wait on mommy to help us type. And we hope you all have a furtastic weekend.

Put That Finger In My Mouth and See What Happens

Hey, are ya’ll out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s sure wish I’s could see ya’ll. Do you wanna see me? What’s that mommy? Oh, okay, we’ll post fotos later so everypawdy will be able to see me. Well, okay then. Let me tell ya’ll ‘bout our crazy week. And furiends…it’s not over yet. While you all be readin’ this very posty, mommy will be chattin’ it up with the DHS nurse ‘bout qualifying to get some help around here. You know mommys doctor would like it ifin mommy quit drivin’. It’s cuz of those passin’ out spells she has. But a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do, mommy says. And till we can find somepawdy who’s willin’ to actually work fur a livin’, then…Well and now mommys gotta prove she still needs help. Anyways, I’s was gonna tell ya’ ‘bout our crazy week so far.

 Raena lays in the stroller

As ya’ know, I’s went with mommy to the doctor on Monday. And it was basically a good trip. Mommys’ back ain’t broke and she’s healin’ up slow and steady. Then came Wednesday and the dreaded dentist ‘pointment. Furst let me just tell ya’, mines harness still fit. And by still fit, I’s mean barely. It did pop open a time or two on Monday, but mommy made it work and said we’d look into getting me a new one. I’s hope she gets me a new Butterfly Cat Jacket. I’d be stylin’ then. Anyways, mommy decided she had the patience to deal with mines trainin’, so I’s got to go with mommy to the dentist.

But let me tell ya’, our house became grand central station ‘bout 10 minutes befur we needed to be walkin’ out the door. Furst the mail lady showed up with a package fur mommy. She had signed up fur some free “fight the wrinkles of old age” samples months ago and they arrived as we were getting all our things together to walk out the door. As soon as mommy laid the envelope down, the doorbell rang. Some neighbor we’ve never met was standin’ at the door askin’ ifin we had any boxes she could have. Somepawdy told her we got a chewy delivery and Christmas prezzies and might pawrt with a box or 2. Guess she don’t mind cat hair, cuz everypawdy knows any box that comes in our house is well luvved. Mommy was able to put the neighbor off and we ran out the door. Okay, maybe we didn’t run, but we were off as fast as mommy can hobble.

 Dezi lays on the arm of the chair

In the car, car started, and…OMC mommy furgot the camera. Mommy hobbled quickly back to the house while me meowed loudly after her. Don’t leave me, I’s meowed. Come back mommy, I’s chortled. Finally, mommy reappeared at the door and hobbled herself back to the car and we were off. And hey, we were only 15 minutes late. Mommy got out her old fashioned cell fone and tried to call and let them know we were runnin’ late. Hmmmpht  They were closed fur lunch. Mommys ‘pointment was at 1 o’clock, right after lunch. So mommy put the fossil of a cell back in her bag and just drove…purrobably a little too fast. But, we made it and only 5 minutes past our ‘pointment time. Aspen Dental was the name of the place. Must have been all that wind blowin’ us all over the place. Least that’s what mommy says. We caught a tail wind to be exact. We settled into the seating area so mommy could fill out the new patient paperwork. When she turned it in, she reaffirmed there would be no charges fur this appointment.

 

 

A few minutes later we were called to the back. Yeah, everypawdy was ohhin’ and ahhin’ over me, but so far, I’s was the purrfect Service Cat. I’s chilled in the stroller keepin’ both eyes on mommy and mines nose in the air. I’s smelled lots of strange things, but no purroblems with mommy. They stuck mommys head in this funny machine that went round and round and took the funniest fotos. Oooooh (shudders) Mommys foto sure looked ugly. Then they moved us to another room and the lady kept stickin’ her fingers and some strange thing in mommys’ mouth. I’s don’t know why mommy didn’t bite that girl. I’s gotta tell ya’, stick your hands in mines mouth like that and watch out. Rrrrrrrroar  Well, many more of those ugly fotos later, and we were off to yet another room.

 Raena bathes while sitting on the perch

The girl with the fingers left us alone and mommy finally reached into her bag to pull out the camera and take a purretty foto of me. “You’ve got to be kidding me!!!”, mommy exclaimed. The batteries were dead. She’d just charged ‘em the day befur, but they just don’t hold a charge like they used too. It didn’t really matter, cuz another girly came walkin’ in the room befur mommy could even get the camera put away. She started shovin’ her fingers in mommys mouth along with something that made mommy nearly jump outta the chair. Then she started ramblin’ on ‘bout cleanings, infection and periodontal disease. With tears streamin’ down her cheeks, and these weren’t the happy ones fur sure; she told girly that she’d never been told she had periodontal disease befur. To which girly replied, “Well that’s why your teeth are hurting. It’s really your gums.” To which mommy snarked, “No honey, it’s the gaping holes and exposed roots that’s makin’ my teeth hurt.” And girly looked at mommy kinda shocked and said, “Well yeah, that too.” And she purromptly left the room.

 

 

I’s chirped and mewed softly fur mommy to feel better and she cooed and told me how purroud of me she was. And then a little short man in a white coat came whooshin’ in and looked at those ugly fotos of mommy. Then he turned ‘round and innerduced himself to mommy. Dr. Luong he said and then he started puttin’ his fingers in mommys’ mouth. I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s so purroud of mommy, she didn’t bite any of those peeps. I’s couldn’t have done it. He poked and pushed mommys teethies and said things to the first girly who couldn’t keep her fingers to herself and took such bad fotos of mommy. Finally, everypawdy kept their hands and fingers to themselves and Dr. Luong talked to mommy. I’s gonna let her tell ya’ what he said.

 Raena bathes while sitting on the perch

Thanks baby. In order to get rid of the pain and infection I currently have, 8 teeth need to be removed on the first appointment (cost varies between $152.00 and $256.00 per tooth). Several of those are broken off so much they require surgery because there’s nothing to grab onto to pull. Of those teeth, 4 are the bottom front teeth. Basically, all I would have left on the bottom of my mouth is a crowned wisdom tooth and my canines. (The crowned wisdom tooth was done over 20 years ago, but is still holding well.) Also included at this appointment would be an immediate partial denture, for a total cost of $3598.00. Then there is 1 root canal and 3 additional teeth with smaller holes that need to be filled ASAP to avoid them becoming infected like the others (cost between $193.00 and $220.00 per tooth). These as well as the few remaining teeth have roots that are deeply implanted in the bone and so he refuses to entertain the idea of full dentures at this time. Also at that appointment would be placement of the permanent partial denture at a total cost of $1662.00. And lastly, they insist I need a cleaning that is done one side of the mouth at a time for a total of 3 appointments and a cost of $1535.00. I’ve never had my teeth cleaned, but of course these numbers sound outrageous to me, and I can’t find anywhere online where these numbers are valid for teeth cleaning. Unfortunately, the rest of the numbers do seem par for the course.

 

 

Fanky fanks mommy, that was too much fur me to ‘member. And I’s tryin’ to furget anyways. All those fingers in the mouth and all. Hmmmpht Just let ‘em put in ‘em mines mouth and see what happens. MOL  Mommy says she nearly passed out when they told her the cost, but I’s didn’t sense it. Mommy says it’s okay, I’s wouldn’t have. Sounds kinda strange to me, but okay. Mommy says anytime you want more money than she makes in a year, she’s gonna pass out. MOL  We did start a fundraiser fur mommy. You can see it here. Ifin you can spare anythin’ we fur sure would purreciate it, but unnerstand ifin ya’ don’t. Mommy really hates to ask since it’s not fur us, but she doesn’t know what else to do. There are fees associated with fundraisers that lessen your donation. But we know that some peeps only want to give thru a fundraiser. Fur all others, if you go to paypal and choose send money to friends or family, there are no fees charged and we will receive the entire donation. Our paypal email is: lexi.dezi@yahoo.com ( lexi (dot) dezi (at) yahoo (dot) com ) Fanky fank you. 

 Dezi lays on the arm of the chair

 

I’s gonna wrap it up now cuz this is a really long posty and fanky fanks to dead camera batteries ya’ don’t even have cool new dentist office fotos to look at. You’ll have to tune in to Service Cat Monday fur the rest of the story. And we’ve got a great question to answer too. We’re joinin’ the weekly Pet Parade.
