(Dezi hears rumbling and the pitter patter of rain drops falling through the vent hood on the oven and starts to head back towards the bedroom. Mommy sees her and calmly says)
Dezi, honey, please stay up here with me and Raena.
(Raena jumps up on the small perch sitting in front of the door and looks out. She turns back and begins to mew)
Sissy, it’s okay, it’s not a full blown storm, just a few rain drops. You know how much mommy hates it when you hide out under the bed all day.
Me’s not hidin’ Raena!!! Me’s checkin’ fur spiders and other varmints to keep you and mommy safe.
Well, don’t you think you’d have found them already? Ya’ know, ifin there was anythin’ to find? You’s been under the bed most of the week.
You never know Raena. Somethin’ could’a crawled in just now. And you know what a fraidy cat mommy is when it comes to spiders and other varmints.
Yep, mommy’s fraidy meter is off the charts when she sees those creepy crawlers. Hey, do you ‘member the other day when we were readin’ one of our furiends bloggys? You know the one, Bear cat and his new sisfur Ellie May?
Yeah, what ‘bout it?
Well, you know how they were meowin’ ‘bout closed bathroom doors and how they wanted to be in there with their mommy to “watch”. I’s can’t believe she actually closed the door on them. Mommy better not get any ideas ’bout tryin’ that here. Anyways, you told them, their mommy was lucky that all they wanted to do was watch. Just what did you mean by that?
You know what me meant Raena. You take the cake when it comes to watchin’ mommy in the bathroom. Mommy’s always jokin’ ‘bout how she’s not had any bathroom purrivacy in well over 40 years. Most peeps with kitties can relate to that. But you take it another step further.
I’s just tryin’ to be helpful sissy. You know, we’re Service Cats. It’s our job to help mommy with everythin’ so she can keep livin’ independently.
Yes Raena, we are Service Cats, and it is our job to help mommy. But trust me when me says, mommy doesn’t need your help to wipe her purrivates.
Says who, sissy, you? Mommy helps us sometimes, I’s just tryin’ to return the favor.
Oh Raena. Don’t you think ifin mommy needed your help, she wouldn’t be sayin’ things like, “RaenaBelle, get your paw out from under my hoohah”, or “Raena, leave my toilet paper alone.”
She’s just tryin’ to be brave sissy. She always pats mine’s head and paws when I’s help.
Raena, she ain’t pettin’ you, she’s tryin’ to shoo you away. Anyways, me was tryin’ to tell awnty Kat, that she was lucky that all Bear and Ellie wanna do is watch. Even mommy says she’s never seen a kitty so enthralled in the purrocess that they stick their paws up there to try to help their human clean up. Who knew you’d go from unrollin’ the toilet paper to tryin’ to use it? You sure are a funny kitty sometimes.
I’s gonna go tell mommy that you’re makin’ fun of me sissy. We’ll see then who gets the last laugh.
Me’s not makin’ fun of ya’ Raena. Me’s tryin’ to help teach you what you’s s’posed to help with and not. C’mon, let’s go play befur the thunder boomers come back thru.
I’s right behind ya’ sissy. Let’s see ifin mommy will give us some silvervine or nip to roll ‘round in.
Till the next time………………………………………………….Be Blest!!!
