Chatting Cats: Mommy Explains We’ll Always Be Together

MeOW  Hold on furiends, me has to go find out what all that noise is ‘bout. It sounds a bit like the trash men, but it’s been goin’ on fur hours now. The trash men usually only take a few minutes. Mommy, hurry and open the blinds and pull back the curtains, me needs to see outside.

          What’s up sissy? What’s all that rumblin’? Is it gonna storm? 

 

Me doesn’t know Raena, mommy hasn’t opened the blinds yet. (Mommy A reaches over and opens the blinds. Dezi and Raena jump on the cat tree and peer outside.) Mommy, we can’t see anythin’ passed mr. O’s big horse trailer. Me didn’t know he had horses?

          Horses? Can we got fur a ride? I’s wanna see the horses. Move over sissy, let me see. How many horses do you see? 

 

Me doesn’t see any horses Raena, just the trailer. Hissssssss Quit pushin’, me’s gonna fall off the tree. Mommy, tell Raena to stop pushin’ me. 

 

          Mommy, tell sissy to let me look out too. I’s wanna see what’s goin’ on.

Oh MeOW  There’s movin’ trucks and boxes all over the pawrkin’ lot. Have they come to get us mommy? 

 

     Calm down girls, there’s nothing to see. Phase 1 of the rehab has begun. Remember, I told ya’ll we were going to be moving soon. I had been told it would be in January, but we got a small reprieve and won’t have to move till March. We should explain this so everybody understands what’s going on and why I’m worried we won’t have anywhere to go.

 

     We live in subsidized housing. That means that our rent is based on our income and allows for medical deductions. Every year we have to provide proof of our income and a letter from our doctor stating any over the counter medical expenses we have along with our receipts. And that’s where our problems started this last year. The manager of our complex doesn’t like us and has harassed us and tried to get us out since she took the job a few years back. We don’t know why since we’ve never done anything to her, and are good tenants. None the less, she keeps trying to get us out.

     Last June, she began harassing my doctor’s office daily thru’ faxes and phone calls, and finally went down there and told the office manager what to write in the letter regarding my over the counter medical expenses. The letter she had them write accuses me of fraud. What she and the girl at the doctor’s office didn’t understand, is that the same letter implicates the doctor and all his staff in this fraud accusation as well. So, the doctor’s office has circled the wagons to try to protect themselves and it’s destroyed the relationship I had with them. Unfortunately, there was no way to clear this up last year since I wasn’t told about this until a couple of days before I had to sign our lease and the girl at the doctor’s office was out sick. Our rent increased because we couldn’t count our OTC’s, but that letter still remains and must be addressed. That brings us to now.

 

     The government has given all subsidized housing money to “rehab” the apartments. So, our complex is being remodeled this year. We all have to vacate and sign new leases once the apartments have been rebuilt. HOWEVER, the manager has told several people that we won’t be coming back. She intends to use the letter from last year to keep us from getting a new lease.

 

Raena gets lap loving

 

 

 

     I plan to file a complaint closer to the new lease signing because we can’t be forced out during an investigation. However, it will come down to the doctor’s office having to admit that they broke the law when they discussed me with the manager and wrote up what she told them too. As I said, the doctor’s office has circled the wagons and isn’t admitting anything, so I’m concerned about the outcome and fear we will lose.

 

     We have no where to go and no real money to get there, but we will be all packed up. We’re not on section 8 housing that can transfer anywhere. Instead, we’re on subsidized housing specific to this complex. Most apartments like this are full and have lengthy wait lists. Altho’ there are none close to where we currently live. We would gladly move anywhere, but we would need a place to stay until we could get housing in that area. So, if anyone has a room, rental property, shed, garage, or somewhere we could land temporarily, we’d certainly appreciate it. Our car has a blown head gasket that we’re tryin’ to get fixed, and truthfully, I’m too old to live in my car again. The girls deserve better; but, we’ll do what we have too and face it together.   

 

No matter what, we’re gonna stay together tho’, right mommy?

     Of course baby, I’d never leave you or Raena. 

 

          I’s never doubted it mommy. I’s just wish we didn’t have to live like this. Nopawdy should have to worry ‘bout losin’ their home just cuz somepawdy doesn’t like ‘em.  

 

Raena lays in mommy's lap with mouth open and tongue out

 

 

 

It isn’t fair Raena, but not much in life is. We are Blest to have each other, and all the luv our hearts can hold. As long as we hold onto that, we can face anythin’.  

 

          We are indeed sissy. I’s gonna link us up with Comedy Plus fur Feline Furiday and then watch the movers some more. Wanna join me?

Nah Raena, me thinks me’s gonna take a little nap. Maybe me will join ya’ later. It looks like they’re gonna be a while. 

 

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

Blest Sunday: Thanks For Being The Best Friends In The Universe

MeOW  (Dezi follows mommy and Raena mumbling to herself)  Kittens, Me sure wishes the weather would make up it’s mind. One minute it’s cold and the next we’re pantin’. Me thinks me may have gotten mommy’s “pussonal summer disease” (hot flashes). Ifin only me could roll up me’s furs like she does her pants legs. Hmmmpht  And what’s up with the clocks? Mommy keeps goin’ from room to room tryin’ to figger out why some say one thing and others say another. 

 

Raena's profile while sitting on cat tree

 

 

 

          Sissy, who are you meowin’ too? And what’s wrong? Don’t you know it’s Blest Sunday? I’s can’t wait to count our Blessings today. 

 

Who can count anythin’ over that squeaky fan? It’s on me’s last nerve!!!

 

          Aaaaaw Sissy, c’mon, snap out of it. You luvs Blest Sunday’s; and you fur sure know we’re Blest. Mommy’s gonna try to put some more oil on the fan, so hopefully it’ll quit squealin’ soon. And I’s asked the crazy lady in the box (Alexa dot) ‘bout the clocks and learned that we were s’posed to turn our clocks back last night, so that’s why some of ‘em are wrong. As fur mommy’s purrsonal summer’s, I’s don’t think those are contagious. Besides, it’s your birthday/gotchaday month; that’s like the biggest Blessing we kitties can ever have. 

 

Dezi looks out door from atop liberty cat tree

 

 

 

Yeah, you’re right Raena. And, peace reigns in our home once again. Now that’s always a Blessing. Ya’ know, me also wanted to meow Fank you to awnty Anonymous and awnty Vonda fur sendin’ me some green papers fur me’s birthday. Me knows how ‘purrtant it was fur you to have your surgery, but me really does ‘purreciate that they wanted me to have somethin’ special. Me’s birthday kind’a got lost in the fray, but they helped to make me feel ‘purrtant too. Me even got birthday cards from Pipo and Dalton and Valentine.

And fanky fanks to all of you fur the luvs, well wishes and purrayers. Mommy says I’s on the road to recovery and gettin’ better and better every day. Altho’ mine’s eyes still hurt a little, they’re hurtin’ in a whole new place. But, I’s can see and blink like never befur. It’s amazin’.

Me was just thinkin’ ‘bout how Blest we are to be a pawrt of this wonderful world of pet bloggers. What an amazing life we have. You know, besides bein’ me’s birthday and gotchaday month, it’s also Fankgivin’ month here in the U.S.. Me’s very fankful we were furtunate enuff to be born in this great Country called America.

way ain’t missin’, doctor stabby and grabby stole ’em.

 

 

 

          Ain’t that the truth sissy. We are Blest with a capital B. Ya’ know sissy, I’s luvs Blest Sundays as much as you do. I’s also like that we get to post our selfies. Altho’ we don’t actually take our own fotos, mommy says she luvs a good close up that shows off our beauty. So, each week we link up with the Kitties Blue fur the Sunday Selfie blog hop.

Chatting Cats: Who Is That Stranger Sleeping In Our Bed

MeOW (Dezi paces through the house meowing, only pausing to hiss or growl.) Raena? Oh Raena? RaenaBelle, where are you?!! (Dezi continues to meow, hiss and growl as she checks all the typical hiding spots. She walks into the kitchen where mommy A’s fixing breakfast.) Mommy, where’s Raena? Why didn’t she come back home with you yesfurday? 

 

Raena's profile looking curiously atop the cat tree

 

 

 

          (Raena emerges from the middle of the scratcher at the edge of the kitchen and walks up to Dezi and raises her paw.) I’s right here sissy. Why… 

 

 

Dezi sits pretty in front of fireplace

 

 

 

(Dezi turns and sniffs the air around Raena) Oh me cats Raena, where have you been? Me’s been lookin’ everywhere fur you. You won’t believe what mommy did yesfurday. She brought this, this Thing home. (Dezi shudders) You won’t believe the stench. It smelled and looked just pawful. No matter how many times me hissed and growled at it, it just kept comin’ ‘round. Me furinally lost it at dinner time, only to find it in your spot on the bed. Me couldn’t believe mommy would let it take your spot. Mommy’s always purromissed she’d never leave us, so me doesn’t unnerstand why she’d let some innerloper sleep in your spot? Don’t you worry tho’, me gave that innerloper a piece of me’s mind. Me hissed and growled an screamed at it. Me let it know just how unwelcome it was. It must’ve got the message, cuz me can’t seem to find it anywhere this meownin’. 

 

Raena sits atop cat tree after surgeryWhat do you mean come down from there mommy? Hmmmm

I’s still a little woozy.

 

 

 

          Sissy, that wasn’t no innerloper. That was me you were hissin’ and growlin’ at. I’s didn’t feel so good and all I’s wanted was a little luvvin’ from mine’s big sissy; but all you wanted to do was stay away from me. I’s just didn’t unnerstand it at all. 

 

That was you? Nah, no way. 

 

Raena looks at wall atop cat tree after surgeryHey window, where’s the squirrels? What sissy? That’s the wall?

 

 

 

          Yep sissy, it was me. ‘Member, I’s had to have surgery yesfurday. 

 

 

Oh MeOW, that was you Raena. What happened? How’d it go? 

 

Raena lays on pillows behind bed after surgery

 

 

 

          Well sissy, I’s was really scared when we furst got there. Mommy held me close and sang to me and cuddled me till I’s quit shakin’. While we were waitin’, there was lots of big woofies that came in. All of them had to check me out. One of ‘em was a slobbery beast. I’s swear, her slobbered more than you do. And another just squatted right there in the middle of the room and peed all over the place. I’s tellin’ ya’, the whole lot of ‘em had really bad manners. Then, these peeps came in with a carrier full of kitties. They were all ‘bout 4 months old. They were meowin’ like crazy. I’s think they were more scared than I’s was. And after overhearin’ what the their peeps wanted, I’s knew why. They were there to be declawed. What’s even worse, is that their peeps wouldn’t lissen to anythin’ mommy said. I’s didn’t know how to comfurt those poor kitties, their lives were fixin’ to take a turn fur the worse and there wasn’t anythin’ we could do ‘bout it. 

 

Oh Raena, that’s so pawful. We’ll have to say some extra purrayers fur them tonight. So, what happened next? 

 

Close up of Raena in lap in car after surgery

 

 

 

          Well sissy, after they took those kitties away, the tech came and got me so mommy could go to the human pawtty box befur mine’s surgery got started. They used that oppurrtunity to shave mine’s face. They even stole some of mine’s whiskers. Ifin mommy hadn’t been indisposed they’d’ve never stole so many. Anyways, I’s ‘member hearin’ mommy’s sweet voice as I’s fell asleep. When I’s woke up, I’s was sore and scared. Seems mommy went to put mine’s medicines away and pay on the bill, so some tech was holdin’ me. I’s dug mine’s claws into her real good. I’s wanted her to hurt like I’s did. Mommy says it took almost 2 hours, but I’s did good and came out of it purretty fast. I’s was still a little groggy when that tech handed me back to mommy. But I’s felt her luvvin’ arms engulf me and hers sweet smell ticklin’ mine’s nose furs. It was heaven. I’s was shiverin’ and just wanted to come home. Mommy put me in the sling carrier she had bought fur us last year, so I’s could be right next to her heart. Mommy tried to post an update to facebutt, but she couldn’t figger it out on the smarty pants fone.

          Since it was your actual birthday and cuz I’s did so good, we stopped at the Arby’s to get us a special treat, turkey tom lurkey and bacon. While we were waitin’ fur our treat mommy noticed the car seemed to be gettin’ hot. So, after we got our sammich, mommy pulled over in the pawrkin’ lot and popped the hood. ‘Pawrently, all our antifreeze was missin’. We don’t know where it went cuz there’s no stains back home where we pawrk, but sure ‘nuff, we didn’t have any. We had to walk over to the convenience store next door and buy some so we could make it back home. Fanky fankfully, we made it home safe and sound. Mommy put water bowls on the floor cuz I’s kept lickin’ mine’s lips and she thought I’s might be thirsty. Hmmmpht  Like I’s was gonna drink off the floor or somethin’. I’s laid on one of the piddle pads in the hallway fur a bit cuz it felt like I’s needed to hurl. Mommy was a little worried cuz mine’s breathin’ was so labored and raspy.

 

Me ‘members seein’ It, uh, well, you in the hallway. Me’s sorry me hissed at you; me didn’t know it was you. Me could hear mommy in the kitchen and since we didn’t get any brekky, me was hopin’ she was makin’ brunch. 

 

Raena lays in lap in car after surgeryDO NOT drive with a cat in your lap.

 

 

 

          It’s okay sissy. I’s didn’t unnerstand why you were bein’ so mean to me, but I’s was so tired, all I’s really wanted to do was cuddle with mommy and take a nap. 

 

Mommy was exhausted too Raena. Now me unnerstands why she wouldn’t let herself fall to sleep tho’. She wanted to keep an eye on you and make sure nuffin’ happened. Me didn’t know that was you playin’ in the kitchen last night when mommy made our dinner, or me would’a played with you. Me was sure that was the innerloper.

 

Raena lays in lap in car after surgery

 

 

 

          It was just me sissy. Mommy purromissed she’d never leave us and she didn’t. There was no innerloper, just me after surgery. I’s felt much better last night and ate a really good dinner. Fanky fankfully, doctor stabby and grabby sent some meds home to help me with the pain, cuz I’s was hurtin’ a little this meownin’. But, I’s hate that nasty salve he sent home fur mine’s eyes. I’s sure hope mine’s whiskers grow back soon. (Raena licks her paw and wipes across her face

 

Ifin ya’ don’t quit pawin’ at your face Raena, mommy’s gonna make you wear that silly collar she bought. 

 

Hmmmmpht  I’s would like to see her try, sissy. MOL 

 

Dezi lays on the arm of the chair, Selfie

 

 

 

Well, me’s just glad you’re back and okay. Altho’ with so many sendin’ purrayers up and askin’ God to keep His hand on you, we should’ve known everythin’ would be alright. We can still use some purrayers fur a full and speedy recovery fur RaenaBelle. Cuz of her size and shape, the e-collar is more of a hindrance than a help.

 

          Don’t furget sissy, we’re linkin’ up with comedy Plus fur Feline Furiday.
