Chatting Cats: Flippin’ Tables…Ummmm Plates

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Ya’ know how we’re always meowin’ ‘bout how kitties have these basic needs. Ya’ know, the things that drive us. And, we’re very blest to have a mommy that unnerstands that and thinks humans shouldn’t try to change us. And yet, every day mommy gets furustrated with me at meal time over one of these drives.


 Dezi and Raena together




          Raena, me can’t believe you meowed that. Mommy doesn’t get furustrated with ya’ ‘bout the doin’, it’s the result of the doin’ she gets furustrated ‘bout.


Hmmmmpht It’s me she’s talkin’ to, I’s think I’s oughtta know what she’s furustrated with. Let me just tell ya’ ‘bout it and see what ya’ll have to say. Ya’ know, us kitty cats, like our big cousins, are finely tuned purr-edators. Yep, we’ve got mad skills.


          Raena…you’ve been watchin’ too much teevee. Meow right or don’t meow at all.


Raena carries a Christmas toy from Cat and LisaShowin’ off mine’s mad skills. RaenaBelle, the Mighty Huntress.



Whatever sissy. Anyways, the feline form was built to hunt and kill. Unfurtunately, there are some animals that think we’re prey. Hmmmpht  They’ve never met mine’s claws or fangs.


 Dezi looks up at Raena and hisses on the liberty cat tree

You deserved the whacky paw of justice here, but

it’s just not who we are.




          Raena, we’re Ragdolls, we don’t actually do much real huntin’. We don’t even give the old whacky paw of justice when it might be needed. It might be in our DNA to hunt, but me doesn’t think we’d do too much actual killin’.


There ya’ go sissy. X’actly!!! That’s why it’s so ‘purrtant fur me to cover mine’s meal in t’ween bites. I’s fur sure don’t wanna end up as somethin’ else’s meal. I’s don’t want somethin’ bigger and meaner comin’ along and smellin’ mine’s noms and thinkin’ I’s would make a good snack.


 Dezi lays on scratcher while Raena lays on nip mat




          Raena, the only thing bigger and well, she ain’t meaner, me doesn’t think anythin’ could be meaner than you… 


Sissy!!! That’s not very nice. I’s gonna tell mommy you’re bein’ mean to me.


Dezi sits pretty on the scratcher



          Sorry Raena. Anyways, like me was meowin’, the only thing bigger than you in this house is mommy, and she ain’t gonna sniff your noms and try to eat you. She’s just kitten ‘round when she says she luvs us so much she could just eat us up. She doesn’t mean she really wants to eat us.


Well course not sissy. I’s know that. I’s meowin’ ‘bout all those things you claim to be purrtectin’ us from durin’ the storms. What ifin they was to smell mine’s noms and think I’s be tasty.


          Trust me Raena, there ain’t nuffin in this house that thinks you might be tasty. And, there’s no way mommy would let anythin’ or anypawdy ever hurt you, much less eat you. So all that scratchin’ and turnin’ over of your food plate isn’t necessary. All it does is make a mess and waste food. That’s the pawrt mommy gets furustrated ‘bout. She spends good money, money we don’t have in abundance to make sure we have the very bestest noms to eat, just to see you flip the plate at every meal. You’re like one of those silly housewives on that reality teevee you like to watch so much. 


 Raena lays on the back of the chair




Nah sissy, they’re always mad, I’s just doin’ what comes naturally.


          Really? Then why doesn’t me need to cover me’s noms? Could it be that me’s older and wiser and maybe you could learn a thing or two from watchin’ me?



 Dezi eats Raena's left overs

Sissy, get outta mine’s noms!!!




Hmmmmpht  Like watchin’ you eat mine’s noms ifin I’s don’t cover it up?


Dezi and Raena eat Primal Freeze dried Cat food




          (Dezi shakes her head) There just ain’t no reasonin’ with you, is there? Well, guess mommy’ll just have to keep turnin’ your plate back over and puttin’ the food back in it. Let’s go finish brekky, mommy’s got your food back in the plate now.


Okay sissy. I’s’ll be right there. I’s just wanted to remind everypawdy there’s still time to enter our pawsum give away. Check it out here.


Do any of you try to cover your food? 


Till the next time……………………………………Be Blest!!!


Raena: Navy Blue 

Dezi: Vibrant Blue 


Luvs and Hugs and Kitty Kisses

  1. I don’t do that…but when Minko was still with us, he for sure did that…a lot! And when petcretary was feeding him in the last years of his life with us, sometimes he even tried to cover that food up…he would spill it all over the place in his efforts. The harder petcretary tried to fasten down the ‘placemat’ the more he worked at getting it loose to bury his noms…sheesh! MOL!

  2. Gosh you ladies look great! I LOVE your cat tree!
    Its been a while since Mommy had a cat that buried their food…way back to Hissy Old Licorice! I — Marvelous — Am a very neat eater! I don’t leave any mess at all, which is a first! Mommy says everybody else scatters their food hither and yon!

    1. Aaaaaaw Fanky fanks Marv. I’s a dainty eater, I’s just don’t want anypawdy else in mine’s plate t’ween bites. MOL Ya’ know, I’s have to make sure I’s not missin’ anythin’ at least a few times durin’ every meal and so I’s gotta cover mine’s noms. MOL Big hugs

      Luvs ya’

  3. Hmm… I don’t cover my food or turn it over. But say, I wonder if I’d get better noms from Mom if I did, ’cause sometimes I don’t like the noms that I’m served. Mom says I’m very purr-ticular about what I eat & it sounds like you two are too. Mom tells me she could eat me up like your momma says the same to you. I don’t think Mom would make a good predator, ’cause she gets sad when just a lil’ ole fly or bug gets stepped on. Tee hee hee.

    1. Yeah Val, we are finicky. Our fave of all faves is Primal freeze dried rabbit. But, mommy says it’s really ‘spensive, so she adds the Primal chicken and salmon to it so the rabbit will go further. Till sis Dezi’s food made her sick, she wouldn’t eat anythin’ but Blue Buffalo. Mommy sure had a time gettin’ her off that. But, Primal did the trick and mommy says she’s never looked back. We’re healthy, happy and mostly well. Since mine’s eyes purroblems aren’t food related, we’re otherwise healthy. Mommy says as far as she’s concerned, Primal be worth every ‘spensive penny. MOL Mine’s purroblem is that I’s like mine’s food so much, I’s don’t want anypawdy stealin’ it. And, trust me, sis Dezi will always try. Big hugs

      Luvs ya’
