Chatting Cats: Changes Are Coming

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We’ve got some big changes comin’. Bet’cha ya’ll didn’t even notice, but mommy’s been workin’ hard to simplify our Service Cat posty’s and make ‘em easier to find fur peeps visitin’ us, even ifin it’s their furst time. Did you know we added lots of new furiends/family last year? Sure ‘nuff, we gained lots of new followers here and we’re so fanky fankful fur all of you. Ya’ know, we meow, you’re only a visitor once. After that, you’re family.

          RaenaBelle, slow down. Have you already been in the nip today?

Nip? Nope I’s not sniffed any nip today, sissy. Least not yet. Ya’ know, I’s could go fur some of that vine awnty Vonda sent us fur Christmas tho’. I’s just happy. Happy and cold that is. Mommy says us kitties can get really active the colder it gets. And, it sure is cold here today. The weather guessers said we’ve got wind chills at 15° below zero. And ifin ya’ don’t even take that into account, it’s only 12° as it is.

 

          That’s outside silly.

 

I’s know, sissy, but mommy ain’t cranked up the heat inside much either. But, I’s don’t think her purrsonal summer’s are occurin’ nearly as much as they used to. Even she’s been wrappin’ up in a blanky lately.

 Dezi lays in mommy's lap

         

          Yeah Raena, but don’t those blankys make her lap even more comfy?

They sure do sissy. I’s just luvs layin’ in mommy’s lap. Anyways, I’s was lettin’ everypawdy know that we’ve added to our menu. Now when ya’ need to refur back to one of our Trainin’ posty’s, ya’ won’t have to find the last post we wrote fur the linkys, you can just click on the Trainin’ Tips link from our menu and find every Educational or Trainin’ post we’ve written. We’ll also be includin’ things like Feline Nutrition, and other educational type stuffs there. And, mommy even thought it would be a good idea to put a Contact us form right there on the page so peeps could submit their questions or blog topics they’d like to see.

 

 Dezi lays on the arm of the chair next to the Scratching post

 

 

 

          You’re right Raena, that is somethin’ to get x’cited ‘bout. Adding all those links to every posty was getting’ a bit tiresome. We’re not done yet tho’, mommy’s gonna be addin’ descriptions to those linkys along with specific tags. So, ifin you’re lookin’ fur how to set up a Decompression room say, you’ll be able to find it really easy without havin’ to re-read every posty. Me thinks it really is gonna be helpful fur everypawdy.

Me too sissy. I’s can’t wait to start postin’ our Service Cat postys again. I’s also wanted to mention that we’ve got a few requests fur mommy to add some more songs. Our Christmas Carols posty was well received, but several peeps wanna hear mommy singin’ some Patsy Cline and other Country songs. We even got a request from awnty Petal fur mommy to sing Amazing Grace. That happens to be one of our faves, so we’ve got mommy workin’ hard on recordin’ some more songs. We don’t really have the right equipment fur all this, so it is takin’ a little time. But, ifin ya’ wanna follow our SoundCloud channel, you’ll be among the furst to know when mommy adds new songs. Our camera’s battery doesn’t hold a charge long enuff to make videos. The battery fur our Canon camera went bye bye over a year ago, and now the one fur our Nikon is just ‘bout charged out. Ya’ know, those batteries aren’t meant to last furever, and with as many fotos as mommy takes, they need chargin’ offen.

 

 Dezi lays in front of fireplace

 

 

 

          Yeah Raena, we’re workin’ on gettin’ new batteries, but like everythin’ else, they cost money, we just don’t have any to spare right now. Anyways, we need to wrap it up Raena. Me’s gonna go lay in front of the fireplace and have a little nap.

 

 Dezi and Raena hang out together during the fireworks

 

 

 

Sounds good to me sissy. Maybe I’s can join ya’. And don’t ya’ll furget ‘bout that pawsum give away we’re havin’. There’s still time to enter. Check it out here.

Chatting Cats: New Year, Same Old Same Old

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. What a week we’ve had so far. I’s don’t like these below 0° days and nights. Let me tell ya’, we’re all feelin’ yucky here. Mommy can barely move. She’s all hunched over like that big ole wisteria bush outside. And sis Dezi had a bout of the sneezy wheezies and horkin’ everywhere. Me? Yep, mines eyes are all gunky and mommy’s had to clean mine’s bloomers more than once in the last couple of days. Hmmmmpht I’s don’t like bloomer cleanin’. No dirty bloomer fotos. Mommy says not even she wants to see that. I’s a big girly and not s’posed to need such things.

 

 Dezi lays in cat bed and looks back over shoulder

 

 

 

          RaenaBelle, what are you meowin’ on about now? Trust me, ya’ never outgrow bloomer cleanin’ ‘round here. Mommy always says she ain’t kissin’ a mouth that’s been cleanin’ such things that get stuck on our bloomer furs. Furankly, me would much rather have mommy clean it up than me. Yuck!!!  Anyways, ya’ know we’ve been meowin’ with mommy ‘bout our postin’ schedule since she’s gonna have that new standin’ ‘pointment on Mondays. We’ve also been thinkin’ maybe mommy can do a few more postys/reviews this year. We think sometimes companies furget we kitties have humans.

 

 Raena on scratcher at toy box

 

 

 

Maybe sissy, but I’s hope mommy gets somethin’ more fun than the product she’s tryin’ out now. As fur our new postin’ schedule, seems we’ll be postin’ Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Furidays and Sundays. Blest Sunday has been a pawrt of Deziz World since almost the beginnin’, and we luv meowin’ ‘bout our blessings. So Blest Sunday’s ain’t goin’ anywhere.

 

 Dezi lays in mommy's lap and gets loving

 

 

 

          We do luv our blessings Raena. Our Service Cat postys will return in February, so get your questions and desired topics in now. We’re also workin’ hard on figgerin’ out a way to go to BlogPaws. It’s so close, we just hate to miss it. We have a ticket, we just need to get the green papers fur the room and transpurrtaion. Anyways, we know 2018 is gonna be full of fun and we can’t wait to share it with all of you.

 

 Raena gets love on the cat tree

 

 

 

And, meowin’ of all of you, we’re really behind in our visitin’ cuz of mommy tryin’ to get green papers and bein’ sick. But, we’re slowly tryin’ to get caught up. So, we’ll be by to visit with ya’ as soon as we can.

Chatting Cats: The World Stopped Spinning So We’re Back

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Sissy, c’mon, the world’s stopped spinnin’ and we can load our site again.

 

 Dezi sits pretty in the hall behind my chair

 

 

 

          Are you sure? Me’s so tired of waitin’ fur the pages to load. Mommy says it’s cuz we live so far out and the innernet peeps haven’t upgraded the wirin’ ‘round here in like, furEVER. 

 

Raena sits pretty and poses on top of the Litter Robot boxThis box is huge, mommy.

 

 

I’s sure sissy. I’s already checked. What did you think ‘bout that big box we got delivered yesfurday?  

 

 Dezi lays on cat tree

 

 

          The box is great Raena. It’s what was in the box that me’s not so sure ‘bout. Mommy says we have to use it cuz we’re s’posed to write a review. 

 

 Raena lays on litter robot box

 

 

 

Yeah sissy, but I’s think it’s ‘bout more than just writin’ a review. Mommy seems really x’cited ‘bout it and says it’s gonna be a big help to her. Anyways, I’s just glad we can get back on the catputer. We’ve not been able to visit our furiends fur days. ‘Course, that did give mommy some time to clean the house. You know we’re havin’ a play date soon and we wanna make a good impurr-sion.

 

 Dezi sits with back to camera

Hmmmmm let’s see, where are we gonna put that thing?

 

 

 

          Yep Raena, me can’t wait. It’s gonna be so much fun. We haven’t had a play date in so long. By the way, did you hear mommy on the fone last night with Ms. A, Nub’s mommy? 

 

 Nubs the black and white manx cat looks at the camera

Bye Nubs. RIP

 

 

 

I’s did sissy. It’s so sad. We hadn’t been over to see him in a couple of weeks. Mommy had said we were gonna take him some special treats this week and then this happens. Ya’ know, Ms. A ended up with Nubs after his person died and nopawdy wanted him. We just can’t ‘magine what it must have been like fur him. Mommy says that’s why it’s so ‘purrtant to make plans fur us fur babies in the event we happen to outlive our peeps. Unfurtunately fur Nubs, he went to heaven on Monday. Ms. A had been at her daughters house, and when she got home, Nubs was layin’ in the kitchen almost dead. He died in Ms. A’s arms on the way to the V-E-T. 

 

          It’s really sad, Raena. but, at least he knew luv befur he left this world. 

 

He also knew the joy of a Yeowww nip nanner since we shared one with him. 

 

 Dezi plays with her new birthday nip nana

 

 

 

 

 

          Then ya’ know he was a happy kitty. Anyways, ‘nuff sad stuffs. Ya’ know, Christmas is comin’ up really soon. Me can’t wait fur mommy to put up our tree so we can watch all the lights. You know, you’re gonna have to leave the decorations alone. The tree baubles aren’t toys.

 

Raena plays with the Yeowww nip nana

 

 

Me?!!! What ‘bout you, sissy? I’s seem to ‘member it was you that mommy had to get on to last year.

 

          That’s not true and you know it. Me thought you didn’t ‘member anythin’ ‘bout your furst Christmas?

 

 Raena plays in the gift bag paper

 

 

 

How could I’s pawssubly furget somethin’ like Christmas, sissy? We got lots of purresents from our Angel furiends. And, we got to go visit and sing carols to the peeps in what mommy called an old folks home. I’s can’t wait to do that again. We are gonna do it again, aren’t we sissy? 

 

 Dezi getting love while laying in mommy's lap

 

 

 

          Mommy says some of the rules have changed. But, she’s gonna call and ask ifin we can come again this year. Me just luvs all the lights and decorations this time of year brings ‘bout. And peeps seem to act a little nicer too.

 

 Raena sits on bed beside chair, profile

 

 

 

That’s nice sissy. I’s wish peeps would be nicer all the time. Maybe our world wouldn’t be so full of hate.  Ya’ know, we better get busy visitin’ our furiends, and helpin’ mommy clean up fur our play date. I’s’ll race ya’ to the new box.

Chatting Cats: Where Did All This Cold Come From

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s can’t believe the week we’re havin’. And OMC It turned cold, cold, cold here over night.

 

Dezi and Raena sit on shower benches in bathroom

          Raena, ya’ need to s’plain what happened on Monday. You know, with our Service Cat Monday posty?. 

 

 Raena lays on a box

 

 

 

What’s that sissy? Why me? Ya’ make it sound like it was mine’s fault. I’s didn’t do anythin’ wrong. I’s didn’t make the innernets be sketchy, or the storms to roll thru, or all the letters and calls that came fur mommy with upsettin’ mews. And I’s fur sure didn’t schedule mommy’s doctors ‘pointment to be right in the middle of it all. 

 

 Dezi stretches on the scratching post

 

 

 

          Me never meowed it was your fault Raena, me just meant that you should let everypawdy know that we’re okay and sorry we missed Service Cat Monday. But, never fear, we’ll be back on schedule next week. Well, lessen the innernet’s ghosties appear again.  

 

Oh, okay sissy. Sorry, I’s just thought… 

 

          That’s what ya’ get fur thinkin’. MOL 

 

Sissy!!! I’s gonna tell mommy that you’re bein’ mean to me.

 

          Oh purrrrrrrlease. It’s not bein’ mean ifin it’s the truth. Anyways……

 

 Raena lays beside scratcher

 

 

 

(Raena looks around a bit confused) Somehow, I’s still think that’s not nice. But fur now, I’s’ll let it go. I’s gotta tell ya’ sissy, I’s not really likin’ all this cold weather we’re havin’. Mr. Sunshine hasn’t been out fur days. I’s thought it was Fall? Ya’ know cooler days fur strollin’? But Nooooooo, we went from Summer to Winter overnight. Altho’, I’s do like the appearance of the ‘lectric blanky. Snugglin’ with mommy the last couple of nights has been really toasty. Well, once you quit meowmblin’ that is. What’s up with that anyways.

 

 Dezi looks down from atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          What? You kept jumpin’ on me. Mommy told you it was late and time to go to bed. You know play time’s over when mommy takes us to bed. We’ve done the same thing every night since you came to live here. 

 

Maybe I’s wasn’t ready to go to bed, sissy. Maybe, I’s wasn’t sleepy yet. Maybe the colds have given me more energy. Maybe, you just looked to temptin’ not to jump on.

 

          Well, temptin’ or not, sleepy or not, you know the rules. You know mommy can’t sleep without us layin’ beside her. And besides, that ‘lectric blanky sure makes fur nice cuddlin’. As fur all that energy, me’s kind’a feelin’ it too. But me did hope fur a few more days of strollin’ weather befur it got so cold.

 

 Raena lays on the back of the chair

 

 

 

I’s purromiss I’s’ll do better tonight sissy. Meowin’ of sleepin’ and ‘lectric blankies, I’s thinkin’ a little nap just might be what the doctor ordered as mommy would say.

 

          That does sound like a good idea Raena. (Dezi sees the manager coming up the walk) HiSSSssssssss  Me’s thinkin’ we oughtta go nap right now Raena. Looks like more bad mews is on it’s way to the door now. 

 

Dezi lays in the chair with Raena on the back

I’s right behind ya’ sissy. Weather purrmittin’, we’ll be ’round to visit as soon as we can. I’s just wanna remind everypawdy there’s still time to get in on their chance fur that Chewy Goody box we’re givin’ away. Just click here.

Blest Sunday: Blessings Love and Peace

MeOW Raena, c’mon, it’s time to write our Blest Sunday posty. You know we have lots of blessings to meow ‘bout this week. 

 

 Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

 

 

          I’s sure do, sissy. I’s started off this past week not feelin’ so good. I’s sure was a hungry kitty girl, but I’s just couldn’t keep any of mine’s foods down. That’s a purretty miserable place to be. ‘Specially when I’s already needed to gain a few pounds. I’s quickly lost those 2 pounds I’s had gained and then some. Mommy’s eyes were so filled with tears, she could barely see. But, fanky fankfully, our furiends started purrayin’ and God showed up and calmed mine’s tummy. I’s ate 3 helpings last night and asked fur a few treats. Mommy’s eyes were still filled with tears, but, she said those ones were the joybell tears. I’s’ll never unnerstand the difference t’ween human tears; but, I’s really glad that mommy’s happy now. I’s still have a tad of the wheezy sneezies, but it seems I’s back to eatin’ like a champ again.

 

 Dezi atop Liberty tree with Raena climbing up to join her

 

 

 

That you are Raena, that you are. Me’s glad you’re feelin’ better too. Trust me, you’ll never figger out those human tear things, so don’t even try. We don’t know why you had such a bad tummy upset Raena, but mommy thinks those wheezy sneezies just might be allergies. She’s wonderin’ ifin that might be the purroblem with your eyes too. They got all better after you got those eye drops, till the last couple of days durin’ your sicks.

 

 Raena lays inside tent track toy

 

 

 

          I’s thinkin’ mommy might be right, sissy. I’s heard mommy sayin’ that we might have to take a trip to the V E T as soon as we can. And, fanky fanks to uncle Pete, Timmy and furmily fur sendin’ some green papers to help with mine’s medical, that day might be sooner than later. Mommy’s just tryin’ to decide ifin she wants to put those green papers towards our bill so we can pay it off faster, or just see a new V E T. Decisions, decisions. I’s sure glad we don’t have to worry ‘bout those kinds of things sissy. 

 

 Blog 4 Peace badge

 

Me too Raena. We’ve got enuff to think ‘bout what with where to sleep, nap and what toy to play with. Anyways, as most everypawdy knows, we don’t blog on Caturdays anymore. And cuz of that, we missed the big Blog Fur Peace day. But, truth is, we think ‘bout and purray fur peace every day. We just don’t unnerstand why peeps would wanna kill each other over somethin’ as small as a disagreement. Ifin everypawdy thought the same way, what kind’a world would this be? Obviously, we luv God and believe He’s the one and only true God. And, we wish everypawdy believed it too. After all, we want all our furiends to be saved from their sins and spend eternity with us in heaven. But, we know that just isn’t gonna happen. None the less, we respect your right to believe somethin’ different without hatin’ ya’ and fur sure without killin’ ya’.

 

 Raena lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

     True sissy. We luvs all our furiends so much and don’t want anythin’ bad to happen to any of you. We purray that God would bless each of you and your families. And, that He would send healing to those that are sick, comfurt to those in turmoil and purrvision to all. We purray fur peace on earth and good will to all. Fanky fank ya’ fur bein’ our furiends and luvvin’ us even when we disagree. Diversity makes fur innerestin’ conversations and causes us all to strive to be better than we are.

 

Dezi lays on floor

Sometimes you can be really smart Raena. We really do ‘purreciate all of you fur your differences and the things we have in common. We fank you all fur your purrayers and suppurrt and ask that you continue to keep Raena in your purrayers. We wouldn’t be the least offended ifin ya’ said one fur mommy and me too. As always, we wanna remind you to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives.

 

Raena lays on back of chair

          And don’t furget, there’s still time to enter our Chewy Goody Box give away, just click here. We’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies too. We don’t really do selfies, but we luv the plandids. C’mon sissy, let’s go play.

 

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