Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me RaenaBelle. Let me tell you, we’ve had da craziest week ever. Me got to go fur da longest and bestest stroll ever. Dat’s not da crazy pawrt tho’.
No Raena it isn’t. Da crazy pawrt came in durin’ me’s stroll later on.
Oh sissy, I’s just couldn’t believe it. You and mommy looked so funny.
Well missy, me didn’t think it was very funny. And me’s thinkin’ neither did mommy. And, dat’s why there’s no fotos of me strollin’. We better tell everypawdy what we’re talkin’ ‘bout. See, da weather be coolin’ off some here and so mommy likes to take us fur a stroll at least a few times a week. It helps to keep us sociable and eager to go out. It also reminds us dat our harness and stroller lead to fun and good things; not just da VET. You can check out our training post fur taking kitty out here ifin you’d like. Anyways, mommy’s been takin’ Raena out furst, so dat hopefully she won’t sit at da door and whine da whole time me’s out. Talk ‘bout separation anxiety, you sure do have dat down Raena.
I’s not know what you’re talkin’ ‘bout sissy. I’s just wanna be with mommy. Isn’t dat a good thing?
Yes Raena, but you can clearly see us walkin’ ‘round. We didn’t leave you, and trust me, mommy wouldn’t ever leave you. Me’s come to accept dat. Now, where was me? Oh yeah, strollin’. So anyways, mommy gathered Raena up and put on her harness and a leash. Raena was so excited, me thinks she thought she was goin’ fur a walk. But mommy put her in da stroller and tethered her in and grabbed da camera. There’s a little storage compurrtment on da handle dat mommy puts da camera in till she’s ready to take fotos. And fank catness fur dat compurrtment, just wait and read.
All tethered in, mommy and Raena headed out da door. Me decided to take a quick bath and a nap befur it was to be me’s turn. Me could see them strollin’ ‘round and stoppin’ fur da occasional foto and to inspect da odd noise or chirpin’ birdy. Furinally they headed back in. Mommy let Raena out and took off her harness and told me it was mes turn. Me came down da Liberty tree to a shelf where mommy could reach me. She put on mes harness and da leash and plopped me in da stroller.
Me was purretty excited and couldn’t wait to get outside. Furinally we were off and out da door. We barely got to da edge of da pawrkin’ lot and suddenly da clouds pawrted, da skies opened up and da rain fell. Me’s not talkin’ ’bout a little shower either. Me means full on heavy duty down pour. And then me saw a bright light flash befur me’s eyes followed by da longest and loudest thunder boomer me’s ever heard. Me meowed to mommy dat we needed to get back in da house right away. Me’s heard ’bout seein’ white lights flashin’ befur your eyes; and nuffin’ good can come of dat. Those rains kept peltin’ da top of da stroller and all of mommy. There is no runnin’ fur mommy. So, by da time we got back in da house, she was drenched. Fankfully da camera was inside dat storage cubby on da strollers’ handle cuz me thinks it’s da only thing dat didn’t get wet.
I’s sorry your stroll got cut short sissy, but ya’ll sure did look funny tryin’ to get outta dat rain.
Well me’s glad you thought so Raena. (meowing under her breath) Me sure hopes it happens to you next time. Then we’ll see just how funny it is.
Did you say somethin’ sissy?
Uh, yeah. Did you know tomorrow is National Cat Day? And next Tuesday is mes Birthday?!! Mommy says we have a surprise comin’ to celebrate with. Me can’t wait.
Did you see da new award awnty Jeanne Foguth nominated us fur?
Yes sissy, The Black Cat Blue Sea Award. We’re very honored, fank you awnty Jeanne. It’s an award fur blogs dat have moved and inspired a wide audience dat includes a little humor fur da occasional smile and/or chuckle. What are da rules sissy?
Furst was to name, link and fank da blogger who nominated ya’. Then ya’ gotta answer their questions and nominate 8 other blogs. Here’s da questions:
1. What inspired you to start your blog?
Well, sis Lexi started out on Facebook tellin’ stowries ‘bout our lives as Service Cats in order to bring attention to da fact dat cats are just as capable of being Service Animals as doggies. And to entertain peeps. Bein’ a Service Cat is serious business, but dat doesn’t mean we don’t have fun too. Anyways, when our furiend Timmy Tomcat asked ifin anypawdy would like to guest post on his bloggy, mommy said me could do it since sis Lexi had da Facebook page. Mommy is very catputer illiterate. So while tryin’ to create an account so we could guest blog, mommy accidentally created our own blog. And da rest as they say, is history.
2. What was your dream of life as a teen?
Me will let mommy answer this one. I wanted to sing for my dinner and be able to eat. I didn’t have to be as big as Elvis or others, I just wanted to be a successful singer. And the second part of that dream was to be a wife. I wanted to have a man in my life that loved me. My father died when I was 2, my grandfather (the only one I ever really knew) died when I was 5 and I didn’t know my one and only uncle.
3. Do you have any regrets?
Me has none and Raena be too young to have any, so we’ll again defur to mommy to answer this one too. Thank you girls. Of course I have regrets. I regret that Lexi had to get sick and die, and the same with those who came before her. I regret that I lived so flamboyantly that I didn’t prepare for the future. I have lots of regrets. But, I can’t change the past, I can only learn from it and hopefully make changes for the better. I pray each day for wisdom and to be a better person. You can’t live in regrets or the past.
Fank you mommy. Well we so hate to choose bloggers cuz every blog we read brings us some kind of inspiration and certainly more than a few smiles. So, Purrlease consider yourself nominated ifin you’re readin’ this bloggy. Follow da rules above and answer the same questions. We look furward to readin’ your answers.
