Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. And, it’s furinally Furiday!!! Woo MeOWWWwww You all know we drink outta fountains, right? Well, we have one on the bathroom vanity. It’s been there since I’s came here. I’s ‘member when I’s was a teeny little girly and would look way up there and watch sis Dezi lappin’ up that furesh water. It looked so tasty. I’s couldn’t wait fur the day when I’s was furinally big enuff to get up there and have a drinky fur mineself. Well, I’s didn’t have to wait too long. As ya’ll know, I’s growin’ like a weed. Least, that’s what mommy says. Anyways, I’s been enjoyin’ that fountain fur quite some time now. But, last night I jumped up there to get a drink and found one of mommy’s coffee cups sittin’ right beside it. Have ya’ heard that sayin’ ‘bout curiosity and the cat? Well, I’s don’t believe it’ll kill me, but I’s sure am a curious girly. So, I’s had to check out why mommy would be leavin’ her coffee in the bathroom. After all, she never drinks in that room, ‘specially not coffee. I’s looked down into that cup and…OMC that wasn’t mommy’s coffee, there was teethies in that there cup.
RaenaBelle, what in the world are you meowin’ ‘bout now?
Mommy’s teethies. Did you see ‘em? They were just floatin’ there in that coffee cup.
Yeah, me saw ‘em. Mommy says that’s the way she’s s’posed to brush her teethies these days. But me doesn’t think you’re s’posed to be drinkin’ the water in there with ‘em, much less, cleanin’ your paws.
Why sissy? I’s bet those teethies would be great fun to play with.
Yeah, you try fishin’ ‘em outta the cup and playin’ with ‘em and see what mommy says. Me’s bettin’ all your treats fur a week that she won’t be amused.
Oh sissy, you know mommy can’t be mad at us. ‘Specially not cute li’l ol’ me. Anyways, don’t you have a cat scouts trip to pack fur?
Me sure does, Raena. Me’s so x’cited. We’re havin’ Cat Scouts summer camp fur the next week. Yep, a whole week. We’re gonna be campin’ and hikin’ and climbin’ huge mountains. It’s gonna be a great adventure.
That’s not fair sissy. Just not fair at all. I’s wanna be a cat scout too.
Me sure hopes me didn’t furget anythin’.
It’s fair Raena, me’s been a cat scout fur years now. Maybe mommy will let you join someday, but right now, cat scouts belongs to me. It’s the only-est thing me doesn’t have to share. Least not all the time. You’ve gotten to go to some of the pawrties we have, but this adventure is really ‘purrtant. We usually have quests or jamborees to show off what we’ve learned in scouts; but, it’s been a while, so this adventure is countin’ as 2 quests. We’ll be competin’ against the other patrols to see who’s the better scouts.
That doesn’t seem very scout like sissy?. Mommy says it’s not to see who’s better, but mostly ‘bout who can answer the questions faster.
Yeah, it’s ‘bout that too Raena. It doesn’t really matter who wins, cuz we’re all great scouts. It’s just that the winners usually get a trophy and braggin’ rights. Me’s patrol, Wally’s Warriors, have won a lot of times. So, are ya’ gonna wish me luck?
Sure sissy. I’s do hope you do well and bring home the trophy. I’s never seen a trophy befur. I’s’ll sure miss ya’ while you’re gone tho’.
Aaaaaaaaw Fanks Raena. Me will miss you too…sort of. It’s gonna be up to you to take care of mommy while me’s away. Can ya’ do that?
Of course I’s will take care of mommy sissy. Maybe she’ll take me fur a few strolls and give me some extra treats and cuddles. Yeah, I’s gonna luvs spendin’ time with mommy. I’s’ll have her all to mineself fur a whole week.
Yeah, don’t get too comfy Raena. Me’s comin’ back home. Ya’ know, we have lots of new members joinin’ fur summer camp. Ifin any of ya’ out there have been thinkin’ ‘bout joinin’ Cat Scouts, ya’ oughtta do it. We have great fun. We’re a small community, but we all look out fur each other. Like me said, there’s lots of pawrties and fun to be had, but, there’s also the camaraderie and valuable lessons we learn. While most of Cat Scouts is of course virtual, we also make an impact in the real world. Lots of scouts send birthday cards each month to some peeps who have to live in community homes like nursing homes and such, and we help each other and our families when we can. Well, guess me needs to go pack.
You have fun sissy. Mommy and me will be fine. We’ll miss ya’, but we’re very purroud of you too. I’s’ll help ya’ pack. Do you have enuff batteries?
Till the next time…………………………………………Be Blest!!!
