Chatting Cats: Who Is That Stranger Sleeping In Our Bed

MeOW (Dezi paces through the house meowing, only pausing to hiss or growl.) Raena? Oh Raena? RaenaBelle, where are you?!! (Dezi continues to meow, hiss and growl as she checks all the typical hiding spots. She walks into the kitchen where mommy A’s fixing breakfast.) Mommy, where’s Raena? Why didn’t she come back home with you yesfurday?

          (Raena emerges from the middle of the scratcher at the edge of the kitchen and walks up to Dezi and raises her paw.) I’s right here sissy. Why…

(Dezi turns and sniffs the air around Raena) Oh me cats Raena, where have you been? Me’s been lookin’ everywhere fur you. You won’t believe what mommy did yesfurday. She brought this, this Thing home. (Dezi shudders) You won’t believe the stench. It smelled and looked just pawful. No matter how many times me hissed and growled at it, it just kept comin’ ‘round. Me furinally lost it at dinner time, only to find it in your spot on the bed. Me couldn’t believe mommy would let it take your spot. Mommy’s always purromissed she’d never leave us, so me doesn’t unnerstand why she’d let some innerloper sleep in your spot? Don’t you worry tho’, me gave that innerloper a piece of me’s mind. Me hissed and growled an screamed at it. Me let it know just how unwelcome it was. It must’ve got the message, cuz me can’t seem to find it anywhere this meownin’.

I’s still a little woozy.

 

 

 

          Sissy, that wasn’t no innerloper. That was me you were hissin’ and growlin’ at. I’s didn’t feel so good and all I’s wanted was a little luvvin’ from mine’s big sissy; but all you wanted to do was stay away from me. I’s just didn’t unnerstand it at all. 

 

That was you? Nah, no way.

          Yep sissy, it was me. ‘Member, I’s had to have surgery yesfurday. 

 

 

Oh MeOW, that was you Raena. What happened? How’d it go?

          Well sissy, I’s was really scared when we furst got there. Mommy held me close and sang to me and cuddled me till I’s quit shakin’. While we were waitin’, there was lots of big woofies that came in. All of them had to check me out. One of ‘em was a slobbery beast. I’s swear, her slobbered more than you do. And another just squatted right there in the middle of the room and peed all over the place. I’s tellin’ ya’, the whole lot of ‘em had really bad manners. Then, these peeps came in with a carrier full of kitties. They were all ‘bout 4 months old. They were meowin’ like crazy. I’s think they were more scared than I’s was. And after overhearin’ what the their peeps wanted, I’s knew why. They were there to be declawed. What’s even worse, is that their peeps wouldn’t lissen to anythin’ mommy said. I’s didn’t know how to comfurt those poor kitties, their lives were fixin’ to take a turn fur the worse and there wasn’t anythin’ we could do ‘bout it. 

 

Oh Raena, that’s so pawful. We’ll have to say some extra purrayers fur them tonight. So, what happened next?

          Well sissy, after they took those kitties away, the tech came and got me so mommy could go to the human pawtty box befur mine’s surgery got started. They used that oppurrtunity to shave mine’s face. They even stole some of mine’s whiskers. Ifin mommy hadn’t been indisposed they’d’ve never stole so many. Anyways, I’s ‘member hearin’ mommy’s sweet voice as I’s fell asleep. When I’s woke up, I’s was sore and scared. Seems mommy went to put mine’s medicines away and pay on the bill, so some tech was holdin’ me. I’s dug mine’s claws into her real good. I’s wanted her to hurt like I’s did. Mommy says it took almost 2 hours, but I’s did good and came out of it purretty fast. I’s was still a little groggy when that tech handed me back to mommy. But I’s felt her luvvin’ arms engulf me and hers sweet smell ticklin’ mine’s nose furs. It was heaven. I’s was shiverin’ and just wanted to come home. Mommy put me in the sling carrier she had bought fur us last year, so I’s could be right next to her heart. Mommy tried to post an update to facebutt, but she couldn’t figger it out on the smarty pants fone.

          Since it was your actual birthday and cuz I’s did so good, we stopped at the Arby’s to get us a special treat, turkey tom lurkey and bacon. While we were waitin’ fur our treat mommy noticed the car seemed to be gettin’ hot. So, after we got our sammich, mommy pulled over in the pawrkin’ lot and popped the hood. ‘Pawrently, all our antifreeze was missin’. We don’t know where it went cuz there’s no stains back home where we pawrk, but sure ‘nuff, we didn’t have any. We had to walk over to the convenience store next door and buy some so we could make it back home. Fanky fankfully, we made it home safe and sound. Mommy put water bowls on the floor cuz I’s kept lickin’ mine’s lips and she thought I’s might be thirsty. Hmmmpht  Like I’s was gonna drink off the floor or somethin’. I’s laid on one of the piddle pads in the hallway fur a bit cuz it felt like I’s needed to hurl. Mommy was a little worried cuz mine’s breathin’ was so labored and raspy.

 

Me ‘members seein’ It, uh, well, you in the hallway. Me’s sorry me hissed at you; me didn’t know it was you. Me could hear mommy in the kitchen and since we didn’t get any brekky, me was hopin’ she was makin’ brunch.

          It’s okay sissy. I’s didn’t unnerstand why you were bein’ so mean to me, but I’s was so tired, all I’s really wanted to do was cuddle with mommy and take a nap. 

 

Mommy was exhausted too Raena. Now me unnerstands why she wouldn’t let herself fall to sleep tho’. She wanted to keep an eye on you and make sure nuffin’ happened. Me didn’t know that was you playin’ in the kitchen last night when mommy made our dinner, or me would’a played with you. Me was sure that was the innerloper.

          It was just me sissy. Mommy purromissed she’d never leave us and she didn’t. There was no innerloper, just me after surgery. I’s felt much better last night and ate a really good dinner. Fanky fankfully, doctor stabby and grabby sent some meds home to help me with the pain, cuz I’s was hurtin’ a little this meownin’. But, I’s hate that nasty salve he sent home fur mine’s eyes. I’s sure hope mine’s whiskers grow back soon. (Raena licks her paw and wipes across her face

 

Ifin ya’ don’t quit pawin’ at your face Raena, mommy’s gonna make you wear that silly collar she bought. 

 

Hmmmmpht  I’s would like to see her try, sissy. MOL

Well, me’s just glad you’re back and okay. Altho’ with so many sendin’ purrayers up and askin’ God to keep His hand on you, we should’ve known everythin’ would be alright. We can still use some purrayers fur a full and speedy recovery fur RaenaBelle. Cuz of her size and shape, the e-collar is more of a hindrance than a help.

 

          Don’t furget sissy, we’re linkin’ up with comedy Plus fur Feline Furiday.

  • Oh, boy, what an ordeal. Mama is a little dim about this and didn’t get exactly what happened to you, you poor little operated-on kitty. Was it the Fix or something else. But whatever it was, we are so glad you are home, and yes, papa says never to drive with me on the lap. Actually I’m a bit … er…not baby-size-any-longer, so I wouldn’t fit really well under that wheel, haha. I hope you ALL feel better after whatevr it was is now done.
    My teeth are hurting a bit but mama doesn’t want to “ put me under'”, whatever that is. We may still have to do that……

  • You were such a brave girl, RaenaBelle when you had your surgery. I’m sure your momma is very proud of you and I know she is so-o relived, as are me and my momma, that you didn’t have any complications from the surgery. Purr-lease get plenty of rest and eat well so your eye can heal. What did the V-E-T say about your gums and teeth? Warm hugs and nose kisses.

    • Fanky fank you Valentine. Yes, mine’s eyes still hurt a bit, but mommy keeps puttin’ medicine on them and sayin’ it’ll make ’em all better soon. He said all I’s needed was a cleanin’, but mommy’s still not so sure. But right now it kind’a hurts mine’s face to have mine’s mouth played with, so we’ll just have to wait till mine’s eyes to heal so we can have a look see inside the jaws of pain. MOL Big hugs

      Luvs ya’
