We’re Back!!! Ifin ya’ follow us on Facebook, you know why we weren’t ‘round on Wednesday, but ifin ya’ don’t, then you’re purrobably wonderin’ what happened. Let me tell ya’, it wiped mommy completely out. She wasn’t worth nuffin’ from Wednesday afternoon on. Anyways, let me just tell ya’ ‘bout it.
Wednesday meownin’ things were goin’ purretty much like every other day. Raena and mostly me had gotten mommy to da bathroom and we were all doin’ our girly meownin’ business. Well, except Raena, she was getting’ into anythin’ she could.
Wait a minute. (Dezi thinks a second) That is what she does every meownin’.
Okay, so we were all doin’ a meownin’ business when all of a sudden Miss Ain’t ‘Fraid of Nuffin’, Miss Me’s got no fear Raena pulled da shelves off da wall and everythin’ came crashing to da ground. Now furstly me needs to ‘splain ‘bout those shelves. As ya’ know we live in a small ‘pawrtment and it doesn’t have any storage space. You also know we don’t have much money, so we make do. Da dollar stores sell these aluminum space savers for puttin’ over your toilets. Well, it doesn’t fit in our bathroom cuz of da way everything’s pawsitioned, so ‘stead of sittin’ on da floor, mommy hung it on da wall and loaded it up. So, 3 shelves full of stuffs and da spacesaver shelf itself came crashin’ down. All while mommy was brushin’ her teefies.
All dat ‘xcitement tuckered me plum out.
Take off da bottom bars and lower legs
and hang it on da wall. This is what
Raena pulled down.
After lookin’ ‘round and seein’ all her stuffs everywhere, but no kitties, mommy assumed Raena had hauled it with me down da hall to safety; so she calmly picked things up so dat we could get to da pawdee boxes and she could get outta da room to fix us brekky. What me furgot to tell you is dat cuz of all da rain we’d been getting’, mommy’s pain levels was off da charts, and she’d furgotten to take her allergy pill da night befur so she couldn’t breathe. But alas, mommy knew we must be a little scared and fur sure we was waitin’ fur brekky; so she pushed through and furinally emerged and headed fur da kitchen. Me was sittin’ right at da edge of da livin’ room watchin’ fur her, and upon seein’ her, me ran to da chair to help her. Mommy luvved on me and pawlogized and then yelled to Raena dat she luvved her too and dat she was gonna be makin’ us brekky. (mommy assumed Raena was in da livin’ room just outta her sight)
Mommy, do you want some help? Can you stand up yet?
Mommy went ‘bout makin’ brekky and getting’ her a cup o’ joe and realized Raena wasn’t struttin’ ‘round da kitchen gettin’ into everythin’, so mommy started callin’ fur her to come up and eat brekky. Once da brekky plates were ready, mommy sat them down. Still no Raena.
We knew there was a purroblem. Da girl likes to eat let me tell ya’. Knowin’ what a fearless adventurer Raena is, mommy really started to worry. All she could think was dat Raena could be somewhere hurt or dyin’ and unable to get to us. Mommy worried dat Raena could hear us and would be there wonderin’ why we didn’t luv her enuff to come and find and save her. So, not bein’ able to walk yet, and most of our hidin’ places bein’ non wheelchair accessible anyways, mommy fell to da floor and began to crawl ‘round lookin’ fur her. 3 hours later, after all da typical hidin’ places were checked and many tearful calls dat went unanswered, mommy sent me to facebook and cat scouts to ask fur purrayers. We just knew somethin’ really bad was wrong cuz Raena wasn’t even meowin’ (answerin’) mommy’s calls to her. Mommy took a short break and then was on da hunt fur Raena again.
Another 3 hours later, mommy heard a faint meow when she called out. Mommy looked in da direction of da meow and chills went through her bones. Mommy used to have a big queen sized bed befur da hospital bed we have now, and altho’ it’s gone, da frame with all it’s tacky metal edges still stands in da corner. Da corner where Raena meowed from. There are things dat mommy still hasn’t gotten put back together from da flood, so there is also other stuff in da corner in front of dat frame includin’ a small pillow roll. Mommy thinks Raena thought she could get on da pillow and be safe, but it’s too small and would have easily thrown her. In other words, da only way fur a kitty to get back there would be to fall over/through dat tacky edged metal frame.
Terrified of what she might find, mommy quickly but carefully started peelin’ everythin’ away till she could see little Raena. There she was, standin’ on her hind paws (no room fur anythin’ else, and her paw was caught ‘tween two frames and she couldn’t get it out. Every time she would pull her paw, da frames would tighten ‘round it. Raena looked up at mommy with da same relief she had da day mommy picked her up and brought her home. Mommy loosened everythin’ and reached down and rescued Raena. We all cried and gave thanks to God. Fankfully, Raena hadn’t been gored or cut by any of da jagged pieces of metal. Her paw was limp, but no bones appeared broken. Her heart was racin’, but all in all she looked okay. After a bit, she had full use of her paw, and was getting’ ‘round fine.
Me knows you all wanna know ifin Raena be a scaredy cat now right? Did she learn her lesson? NO!!! She didn’t learn anythin’!!! She was right back at it an hour later. Me will tell ya’ dat she did jump when mommy made noise with da bed frame when she was takin’ fotos and puttin’ everythin’ back together. Well……at least maybe she won’t terrify mommy by jumpin’ up there again. And no, we don’t have fotos of Raena stuck. Mommy just doesn’t think ‘bout those kinds of things. All she could think of was savin’ Raena. Gotta tell ya’, dat’s one of da reasons we luv our mommy so much.
So, dat’s where we was. Mommy was exhausted once Raena was found, so she just told me we would post and visit today. Then she ‘membered her case manager’s comin’ today, so we’ll be by as soon as we can. We do wanna fank everypawdy fur your purrayers and good thoughts. Fur everypawdy who suggested shakin’ a food or treat bag, our raw food and freeze dried treats don’t make any noise. But again, Raena couldn’t get out and get to us. And thus da reason mommy continued to search fur her all 6 hours. We’re not judgin’ anypawdy, but attitudes like “wait and see” or “she’ll come out eventually” are reasons cats don’t get as much VET care as doggies, and thus feline medicine isn’t as advanced as it should be. Just somethin’ to think ‘bout, maybe kitty can’t get to you, or doin’ so may cause them further injury. We can’t say fur sure. All we can say, is dat mommy will always look fur us and not wait fur us to come ‘round. It’s Furiday, so we’s joinin’ Rascal and Rocco and their pawsum co-hosts fur da weekly Pet Parade. Me’s gonna go have a nip tumble.
