Get Off The Phone Mommy

Meowllo everypawdy, hope your week is goin’ great. It’s been busy, busy ‘round here lately. Let me tell ya’ findin’ somepawdy to help mommy is a lot of work. You know with da exception of a couple hours yesfurday when mommy’s case worker was here, mommy was on da fone most of da day with one purrson or another. She’s gotta check refurences, both purrsonal and business, and set up interview times, and get others applications. Mommy says even tho’ it’s a lot of work, she’s happy dat we actually have a few different peeps to choose from. At furst it was lookin’ purretty bleak.

Oh, Hey everypawdy, how ya’ doin’?

And of course you all know we’re lookin’ fur a helper of da 4 legged furry purrin’ kind too, so dat takes up a lot of mommys day. Everyday she calls da shelters, rescues, and newspaper and online ads to see ifin me’s new sisfur is out there. So far everytime we think we’ve found her somethin’ happens and we’re startin’ all over again. But dat’s okay, we just know da right sissy will show up. Me thinks when she does we oughtta throw a pawty. What do ya’ll think? Me thinks anythin’ is a good reason to celebrate. MOL  Me just has to get mommy off dat fone.

Lickety, lick, lick, lick

Anyways, this month has just gotten away from me. Me had planned to have another give away this month, but things just didn’t fall into place in time, so da furst week of June, stay tuned. Me thinks you’re gonna luv this one. And mommy is also tryin’ to figger out how to shoot a tutorial video. Me knows ya’ wanna know what it’s about, but you’ll just have to stay tuned. Me can tell ya’ me’s not gonna be da most coop-purrative purrticipant.

Me luvs me’s Yeowww Nip Rainbow

Well there’s a long weekend comin’. Mommy’s birthday always falls on da weekend of Memorial day, and this year it’s da Furiday befur. As me told you befur, we aren’t gonna have a big brouhaha. Mommy had hoped to have a new furry purrer by then, but since dat isn’t gonna happen me told her we could play snuggle snuggle. Just gotta keep her off da fone long enuff.

 Dezi rolls on her Yeowww Nip rainbow

Mommy thinks me’s been sleepin’ too much lately. Me doesn’t seem interested in playin’ much. And she’s tried everythin’. So just fur mommy, last night and this meownin’ me had a little play fest with me’s Yeowww rainbow dat we got fur Christmas. It sure made mommy happy. She was smilin’ and gigglin’ like a little girly watchin’ me play. And she didn’t get on da fone once. It doesn’t take much to purrlease mommies. And of course she had da flashy box close by and was snap, snap, snappin’ away, so me thought me would share a few of those fotos with ya’ll today. Me’s gonna wrap it up so we can try to get by and visit as many of ya’ as pawssible befur da storm hits. 

Dezi smells nip on the floor and scratches it

Ooooooh Even da floor smells like nip.

Do ya’ll have any plans fur da long weekend? 

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

Gift Picks From Blessings

Here it is supposedly da biggest shoppin’ day of da year and we’re still givin’ thanks fur our many blessings. But dat bein’ sed we thought we wuld put together a gift list this year. We’ve never done one of these before but we’ve received and reviewed so many pawsum purroducts this past year and a lot of ya’ trust us to tell da truth ‘bout things dat we thought we wuld be remiss ifin we didn’t. We’re not getting’ paid fur this and we won’t get anything ifin you buy any of these things, but we think these items would be great gifts fur the furry purrer(s) in your life.

 

1. We’ll start in January when we were so blest to have received da Fandango Liberty Cat tree from Cat Tree Steve and a special donor. It retails fur $349.00. Yes, we were and are very blest as mommy kuld never have afforded this. Obviously da Liberty tree is pawsum, but Cat Tree Steve makes a variety of trees, posts and steps, and all are made by hand out of real wood and great quality carpets. And he takes special orders. So ifin you don’t see what suits your fancy, let him know what you would like, we’re sure y’all can come up with somethin’. All things considered, his prices are good. His scratchin’ posts start at $39.00 and prices go up from there based on the item you choose. But trust us, sometimes you get what you pay fur, and when it comes to trees and scratchers, you want somethin’ sturdy and safe fur your kitty to use.

2. It would be so wrong ifin we didn’t list one of our favorite toys ever, da Yeowww nip toys. OMC Does this company make a bad toy? We have da nana (altho we can’t seem to find it right now, mol), cigar and sardines and LUV them all. Da link takes you to amazon and da nana, but check out all da Yeowww toys, we’re sure they will be a hit. Prices vary according to product and where you buy them, but they start around $6.00 and go up from there.

3. Next up is a good scratcher. Regardless of how your kitty likes to scratch, all cats need to scratch. Yes, even your declawed kitty still wants and needs to scratch. Mommy sez you need scratchers in a variety of materials and at least one horizontal and one vertical scratcher. We’re furiends with a dog rescuer who once told mommy dat she thought a scratcher was a scratcher and she didn’t know there was any more to it. But there is. Me is a vertical scratcher dat purrfurs carpet and sisal. Sis Lexi is a horizontal scratcher and purrfurs corrugated cardboard; altho’ she will also use sisal. Ifin your kitty is a vertical scratcher be sure to get a sturdy post. Ifin it falls over da furst time we touch it, we won’t ever use it again. Our furst Christmas we won a pawsum scratchin’ post from da Purrfect Post. And this year we reviewed a great horizontal bench scratcher made by Catit. Prices here range according to scratchin’ surface, size, type and where you get it. They can start as low as $8.00 and go up into da $100’s.

4. Next up is the Fountain. Something that’s not only fun, but helps your kitty stay healthy. Mommy sez dat just like da scratchers, this one can be a bit tricky too. There’s so many options on da market today dat surely you can find da right one fur your kitty. And don’t get discouraged ifin your kitty seems afraid of da fountain at furst. It took me a good long while afur me wuld even get near our furst fountain, much less take a drink from it. MOL  We reviewed da pawsum Pagoda fountain from PetSafe a few moths ago and we luv it. And mommy luvs it cuz it be easy to clean. But me also luvs to drink from a stream which me can’t do with da Pagoda. American Valley Pet makes a great fountain dat has UV sterilization and a stream. Tween da bubbly ones to da streamin’ ones, plastic, steel or ceramic water fountains, there’s one out there fur your furry pal. Prices here can range from $25.00 to the $100’s. Just remember to be patient and keep a bowl of water out by da fountain till you see your furry pal drinkin’ from da fountain. You don’t want them getting’ dehydrated cuz they’re too afraid to try da fountain. Every kitty can be won over, it just takes a little time.

5. Now you know your little hunter needs to play and Jackson Galaxy da cat daddy himself has some really pawsum interactive toys. Da furst one is da Ground Prey wand toy. Oh we luv this one. And with the wire holdin’ da toy to da wand, it’s purretty indestructable. Da next one is da Air Prey wand toy. This wuld be da one fur all you fevver luvvers. Both of these sell fur $15.95 on Jackson’s site. Altho’ a little pricey, they awe worth it when you see da amount of joy on your little hunter’s face.

Well there ya’ go. A little list of sum pawsum products. Any of these items wuld make purrfect gifts fur da furry purrer in your life. Altho’ we haven’t reviewed all of these fur ya’, we do own them and use them regularly. We hope you enjoy our gift picks and remember da bestest gift of all is Luv. A furever home where we’re safe and luvved is all we really ask fur. As da human in this relationship, it’s up to you to make sure we have da things needed to keep us healthy and happy and not destroyin’ your furniture. We awe so blest to have our luvvin’ furever home with an amazin’ mommy and da things we need to be healthy happy kitties.

Weez been seein’ these all ovew da blogosphere and weez entered numewous contests to win one. But so faw, weez not won any of them. We wuz a little sad and so mommy set ‘bout to make us glad. You know mommys, they don’t want us to be sad. Specially wiff all dat’s goin’ on wiff sissy and all. Anyways dat leads us to now. Weez kinda twyin’ out to be Petbox ambassadors.

As me sed we had been hidin’ nappin’ and twyin’ to avoid all da noise da roofers wuz makin’ so we didn’t even hear da delivery man come. Well mommy knew zactly what it wuz when she got da package cuz it sed Get Petbox.com wight on da box. Knowin’ dat we wuz gunna be weally ‘cited, mommy quietly opened da box to take a foto or two afur we dug in. Then she put da box up on a shelf so we wuldn’t get into it afur her wuz weady wiff da camewa. Once fings quietted down we slowly emerged fwum ow hiding nappies. And boff ow noses went up in da air. Sis Lexi maneuvered da chair, anudder box, and climbed up sevewal levels of da cat twee to get to da “box”. She stawted rubbin’ da bottom and scentin’ it all up. Me didn’t know what it wuz, but da smell wuz overwhelmin’ and me wusn’t gunna let her hav it all, so me jumped up next to her. It wuz callin’ ow names. So mommy gwabbed da camewa and took da box down. We followed post haste. It wuz like dat box wuz pullin’ us to it. And oh da wunnew when we finally got to see inside. There wuz so many pawsumly amazin’ fings in there.

Da furst item we found wuz a Yeowww nip heart. These peeps must hav da mawket on da bestest nip ever, cuz they just don’t make a bad toy. Least in ow sperience. But dat wusn’t da only pawsum nip in da box. Also included wuz a whole big ole bag of Priscilla’s cat nip. Now let me just tell ya’ we won a cat gwass kit fwum her not too long ago, and OMC dat gwass wuz amazin’. All their purroducts be Home Grown. So you can magine how good dat nip is. And it’s so finely gwound it’s almost a powder. So da bag…it is cwam packed full. No skimpin’ or cheatin’ ya’ there. Yous fur sure get yous munny’s worff. But alas, dat’s not all dat wuz in dat lottery box.

There wuz also a door hangin’ scwatcher fwum Petlinks. (We actually hav sum of their udder toys. They’s all purretty cool. Most of them hav a snap attachment dat can be innewchanged.)

As ifin we needed mowe enticin’ to use it. NOT!!! MOL Mommy sez da scwatcher is quite nice and goes wiff any décor. Like we care, it felt good and smelled good and comes wiff a snap on toy.

Dat’s all well and good ya’ say, but what ‘bout da company? These days we all like to know dat da peeps we giv ow munny to be duin’ sumfin’ good fur da animal community.

Betcha’ yous kuld find sumfin’ fur udder pets too. And they offer sevewal diffewent purrice boxes, to meet most pocket books.
