Meowllo evewypawdy hope yous havin’ a good week so faw. Today be Bacon’s show and tell day. And Easy suggested da topic fur show and tell be all bout bein’ born. Da day of ow birff. Altho we hav told these stories afur, we didn’t hav very many furiends then so weez fawt it wuld be a good idea to tell it all again. Now me can tell sis Lexi’s stowry just like me wuz there cuz meez heard it so many times. So dat’s where weez gunna stawt. Let me set da scene fur ya’.

Mommy sez me looks good in oil paints.
Mommy sez me looks good in oil paints.

Picture it, April 1999, a very bootyful spwing day in Oklahoma. Da sun wuz shinin’, it wuz still a little cool in da meownins and there wuz still dew on da flowers and tips of da gwass. There wuz a house in da good pawt of town where there lived sevewal Egyptian Mau kitties bein’ bwed to make show kitties and pets fur peeps lookin’ fur dat kind of kitty. One such Queen wuz nearly weady to giv birff. Her peeps all got weady to go out fur da day and had been outside havin’ there meownin’ coffee. Next door lived a stay at home mom what had a big ole doggy livin’ out in hers back yawd. A foo hours after da Mau’s furmily left fur da day dat very purregnant Queen wandered into da kitchen and found da back door left ajar. She had never been on da udder side of da door, but she kuld smell da fwesh air and hear da birdies chirpin’ and callin’ to her. She sensed it might not be safe, but just kuldn’t wesist da “call of da wild.” Out fwu da cwack in da door she went. Da still dewey gwass felt stwange on hers paws and all da new smells tickled her nose. Sounds wuz comin’ fwum evewywhere and hers ears wuz dawtin’ side to side and fwunt o back. Da sun wus bwight and warm on hers black spotted and stwiped coat.

She laid down on da moist gwass and stawted cleanin’ hers paws. Just then she saw a squirrel dat had descended fwum da twee in hers yawd. He had always played happily in this yawd cuz there wuz no animals or bawkin’ doggies here. He hadn’t seen da little Mau Queen layin’ in da gwass gwoomin’. But she saw him. And instinct took over and she cwouched and wan toward da little squirrel hoo chattered and wan up da twee. Just then da little Queen heard lots of loud bawkin noises dat scared her and suddenly she kuldn’t member what to do or where to go so she headed fur da fence and up she climbed like she did on da cat twee in da house. Once at da top of da wooden picket fence she jumped down…in da neighbors yawd. Maybe she fawt she wuz back in her yawd, maybe she wuz still confused. We will never know. But after lookin’ wound a moment she laid back down in da dewey gwass. Dat wuz a lot of ‘citement fur a little Queen almost weady to giv birff.   

But she wasn’t in her yawd and she wusn’t safe. Da big doggy dat lived in this yawd saw her come over da fence and headed back wound to hims backyawd fwum da side of da house. When he got to da backyawd he wan full speed toward da little Queen. She looked up. She had never seen a doggy afur, so she didn’t know what to do. It all happened so fast. Afur she kuld move da doggy had her in hims mouff. Hims wuz gwowlin’ and shakin’ her evewy which way. She scweamed at furst and da lady of da house came wunnin’ outside to see what da commotion wuz. And as she opened da door she saw sumfin’ very tiny bein’ flung into da fence and fallin’ to da gwound. She saw dat 2 more times as she wushed to get da water hose and spway hers doggy hopin’ hims wuld welease whatever hims had in hims mouff. Da doggy took off wound to da side of da house again, and da woman went over to da fence to see what had dwopped.

I'z wuz awlwayz a liddull dibbrunt and on minez own.
I’z wuz awlwayz a liddull dibbrunt and on minez own.

There she found 3 of da tiniest little kittens she had ever seen. Knowin’ it wuz too late to save da little Queen she scooped up da kittens and took them in da house. She gwabbed a little shoebox and put da kittens in it stacked on top of one anudder. She didn’t know ifin they wuz alive or dead, but she knew she had to get them help. She gwabbed hers keys da shoebox of kitties and hers cell fone and wan out da door. She knew there wuz a wescue gwoup wiff a bottle feedin’ specialist at da Pet store dat day so she wushed to da store. By da time she weached da store, 10 minutes later; one of da kittens wuz scweamin’ weally loud. She wuz gwateful fur dat and hoped it meant they wuz okay. Into da store she wan where meez mommy heard da baby cwyin’ and wan over to meet da lady. Mommy took da tiny shoebox full of kitties and cleaned them off and put them in a bigger box and gave them a bottle afur heawin’ their hawwowin’ tale.

Da bweeder lady never contacted mommy and mommy waised those little kittys to be stwong and luvvin’. She did lose one of da kitties at 2 1/2 weeks to neurological purrawlems. She wefused to eat and so mommy had to send her to heaven. But sis Lexi and hers bwofur littermate gwu stwong and mommy found da pawsumest home fur little Cade hoo also gwu into a lawge kitty like Lexi and me. And of course Lexi stayed wiff mommy as you wead wecently in mommy’s luv letter to her. Mommy hopes Lexi  dusn’t member anyfin’ ‘bout those furst ten minutes of hers life and has dun evewyfin’ she can to show Lexi dat she be purrfect and dat she luvs her very much. And yous know what? Lexi knows it and she luvs mommy more than anyfin’ in da universe.   

Mommy sez I'z look grayt in oylz too.

Well dat be ow show and tell fur da day. Ifin yous wanna wead more birff stowries head on over to Bacon’s wight now. And till da nex time…………………….Be Blest!!!

So what do yous do ifin you just can’t bwush yous kitties teef? You know sum kitties wuld take yous fingers off afur lettin’ ya’ bwush their pearly whites. Not mentionin’ any names, CK. MOL (she won’t be mad, she knows we luv her). Well yous do hav sum options. Of course there’s always teef cleanin’ by da Vet, but yous weally don’t need to do dat very offen. Least not as much as you shuld be bwushin’ kitties teef, which shuld be daily. So then what? Treats, dat’s wight, tweats. And not just any ole tweat, but Greenies Dental Treats dat we got fwum Chewy.com this mumff.  

 dw chewy review Greenies beef dental 2-14

Yep dat’s wight, me sed dental tweats. But they don’t taste like no medicine or toof paste and they even come in lots of diffewent flavors. As you know we here in ow house like da beef, so we got da Succulent Beef flavored dental tweats. Not sure what dat little shape’ posed to be, but dat dusn’t weally matter cuz they be tasty and succulent alwight. Boff sissy and me ate ‘em wight up. Ifin yous like chicken or fish, they got sum fur you too. And ifin yous like Nissy and cwavin’ catnip…they hav those too. And da purrice be excellent fur what’cha’ get. Da bags awe 2.5 oz. and they be full. And they only be 1.25 calories each. So we liked ‘em. 4 paws up here. But what ‘bout mommy, did they float hers boat?

She sez they da #1 wecommended tweat by Vets and da only one appwoved by da VOHC fur tartar weduction. They be made wiff a natural furmula wiff added vitamins, minerals, taurine and chlorophyll which be good fur fweshenin’ up da bweaff naturally. Mommy likes dat we like ‘em and da purrice. She didn’t like da fact dat there wuz no beef whatsoever in da succulent beef flavored tweats we got, but da word flavor sez it all and pawently sissy and me wuz fooled. MOL So mommy wuld be happy to giv these to us on a wegular basis as a supplement to wegular bwushin’.

Anyways back to Furiday. Evewyfin’ had been goin’ gweat. Boff sis Lexi and me had been eatin’ all and me duz mean all ow noms and playin’ togedder and snugglin’ wiff mommy to keep us all warm. So we went to bed Fursday night just like always. And sumtime duwin’ da night meez tummy stawted to wumble and ache. Me got up a foo times to eat a bit of gwass, but it didn’t seem to be helpin’. Well finally me wuz able to settle in and get sum sleep wiff mommy and Lexi. And then wight afur time to get up me had to go use da pawdee box. It didn’t take long afur mommys sleepy nose smelled sumfin’ afowl in da air. She woke up and we went ‘bout ow meownin’ massages and got mommy to da pawdee box woom where she saw da pawdee box. She smelled it too, cuz me hadn’t boddered to cover it up. MOL She looked at it fwu hers half sleepy eyes and sed, “OMC If it didn’t smell so bad I’d think it was throwup.”  But alas it wusn’t fwo up. Which became painfully obvious to mommy and sissy da minute me hiked meez tail up and showed them meez bloomers and legs.

 dw Lexi Blessed Sunday! - 2HEoW-1ed - normal

Mommy sed in dat sweet and sleepy voice, “Oh sweet Dezi, I’m so sorry yous tummy hurts.” Good fing mommy kuld use hers awms and hands cuz she had to clean da pawdee box and me afur we kuld even fink ‘bout bwekky. Of course me had to grrrrrrrowl a bit and hiss a time or two while she cleaned me up. Gotta keep up appearwances you know. Alltho’ me has to tell ya’ dat those of ya’ hoo purrfur to clean yous own mess awe a little cwazy. Dat stuff stinks, and it fur sure don’t taste good. Anyways once clean, off to da kitchen we went. Mommy got sissy hers butter spoon and stawted ow bwekky when she wealized me wuz nowhere in sight. Mommy called to me and me emerged fwum wound da corner and walked over to mommy wiff meez tail up high and wubbed hers leg. Yep, yous guessed it, me needed cleanin’ again.

This went off and on all day long. Mommy only had time to answer a foo emails. And lots of times she had to take a bweak fwum typin’ ow weply to take care of me. Fank catness awnty Jennifer and gwand awnty Peggy had sent mommy sum coffee or hers might hav been mumblin’ da whole time. Finally wound 330 Caturday meownin’ after lots of purrayers and gwass and time spent in da pawdee box me stopped and wuz able to settle down and go to sleep. Caturday wuz much better. Me didn’t weally eat much Furiday, mostly cuz me kuldn’t stay outta da pawdee box long nuff, but also cuz meez tummy hurt. Me jumped up in mommys lap a time or two and let ‘er wip. No, not dat, me tooted. MOL And of course me did it when me had meez hineybo facin’ mommy. She wusn’t amused. MOL But she didn’t complain, she just hugged me and purrayed fur me.  We fawt it wuz over Caturday cuz meez stools wuz no longer a wunny mess dat landed all over meez bloomers and legs. Me did hav a softy this meownin’, but nuffin’ like Furiday and meez tummy dusn’t hurt anymore.

Me is so blest to hav a mommy hoo luvs me so much dat no matter how many times me needs to be cleaned up; she will do it wiffout complainin’. Mommy did say it wuz iwonic dat da very day we posted ‘bout how much ow mommy luvs us and why we luv hers back, meez wuld need so much of dat messy dirty luv. MOL Anudder blessin’ we got yesfurday wuz fur mommy. She found a pork chop and a kupple taters on da chair on da porch. Mommy wuz so ‘cited and made hers sum fwench fwies and baked up dat pork chop. Altho sissy and me didn’t get a bit. Mommy sed since meez tummy had been so upset just da day afur, she didn’t wanna take any chances. Hmmmph, A likely stowry. 

And in udder news…what’s up wiff da blogger captchas? OMC Sum times we only hav to check da box, and sumtimes we get those hawd to wead letters and nummews, and now weez getting’ cakes and steaks and beers!!! Oh Me!! Mommy sez ifin she has to look at anudder filet mignon or NY stwip hers gunna scweam. MOL Nuffin’ like showin’ a hungwy meat eater da bestest cuts of da beef. MOL  And today weez gunna be havin’ a little fun over at da Tabby Cat club and Cat Scouts wiff a Oscar pawty.
