Chatting Cats: You Won, Just Click Here

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. Hold on just a minute, I’s checkin’ our emails. I’s thought I’s saw somethin’ here a minute ago…now where did that email go?. (Raena searches the email subject lines and finally sees one that says “you’ve won”)  Here it is mommy, open that one. Read it to me mommy, read it now. (Mommy A slowly and sarcastically reads the email to Raena.)  WooHoo!!! Our troubles are over!!! We’re rich sissy!!! We’re rich mommy!!! We can have as many scratchers and cat trees as we want now. (Raena zooms thru the house and up the cat tree and back down. Raena zooms thru the house and knocks a few knick knacks from their spots onto the floor. She finally runs back to the living room and jumps up on the boxes behind the chair) We’ve won the New Zealand lotto!!! Mommy, how many dollars is a million pounds? What are we gonna buy furst? I’s think we should buy a real Three Belles Ranch and make lots of cat houses so we can save all the kitties who need a home. Sissy, what do want to buy furst?

          Uh Raena…we don’t play the lotto. We fur sure don’t play the New Zealand lotto. That’s a scam.  

 

A scam? No sissy, they didn’t ask fur anythin’. They just need us to click this link. Hurry mommy, click it fast. We don’t want ‘em givin’ our money away to somepawdy else.

          RaenaBelle, you know mommy ain’t gonna click that link. There’s a rule, ifin it sounds to good to be true, then it purrobably is. And trust me, us winnin’ a lottery we don’t even play is way too good to be true.  

 

But sissy…We got an email?. Surely they wouldn’t lie to us?.  

 

          Well Raena, that’s one of the hard lessons you have to learn ‘bout life.. Just cuz you don’t lie, doesn’t mean everypawdy else on the planet tells the truth. There are scammers ‘round every corner. That’s why we’re so fankful fur all our furiends. They’re the bright light amidst all the crazy.

So, we’re not gettin’ a million pounds? We can’t really buy a ranch or a bunch of scratchers?  

 

          No Raena, we’re not gettin’ a million pounds. We’re not buyin’ a ranch and we’re not buyin’ a house full of scratchers. Altho’ we kind’a already have a house full of scratchers. 

 

Dezi lays on cat scratcher

 

 

 

Yeah, but most of those are worn out; or you hurled on ‘em.  

 

          Not all of ‘em Raena. Besides, we still have our sisal scratchers. They’re still in great shape. And mommy got us the new scratcher lounger from the green papers we got fur Christmas. 

 

Oooooh Sissy, meowin’ of gifts, did you see what came in the mail yesfurday? We got not one, but two new Cat Dancers. Mommy found a 2 pack at Wally world. Ya’ know our Jewish furiends from the J-Cats didn’t even know what it was. 

 

Raena plays with the Cat DancerI’s luvved the cat dancer when I’s furst came here.

 

 

 

          Yeah Raena, me ‘members me’s furst Cat Dancer. They used to be more ‘spensive and mommy grumbled ‘bout payin’ so much fur a few pieces of rolled up papers on the end of a wire. But once she saw how much fun it was fur me, she said it was priceless. ‘Course, that didn’t stop her lookin’ fur a bargain when it came to buyin’ a new one. Me just can’t wait to play with it. 

 

Dezi whacks the Cat Dancer from the liberty Cat tree

 

 

 

Me too sissy.  

 

          Well, don’t break this one. Me doesn’t even know how you could break a metal wire.   

 

Hmmmmpht  I’s don’t recall that sissy. And, ifin I’s don’t recall it, it didn’t happen.  

 

Raena sits on scratcher in front of the tv

 

 

 

          Let me guess, you heard that on teevee? Cuz you know, ifin the evidence shows you’re guilty then you’re guilty whether you ‘member it or not. 

   

Evidence? There ain’t no evidence sissy. One day we woke up and it was just broken. You could’a broke it yourself and now you’re tryin’ to blame it on me.

 

          Sure Raena. Me had it fur a whole year befur you came and two days after your arrival it magically breaks? Just like all our electronic toys. You’re just hard on toys, that’s all. 

 

Raena walks on boxes in hallway Gotta go…

 

 

 

Well at least I’s don’t hurl on everythin’ sissy. That’s so gross. Anyways, ifin we’re not gettin’ that lotto money, then all mine’s plans fur the day are shot. I’s so wanted to go shoppin’. Hmmmpht  I’s guess we better finish our brekky.  

 

Do you play the lotto? 

  

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