MeOW RaenaBelle, hurry up, it’s Blest Sunday. What are you doin’ anyways? You know it’s time to count our Blessings, so get the lead out!!!
Raena: Sheesh sissy, chill out. What’s gotten into you? And what’s lead and where is it? I’s don’t have any lead, I’s all fur and goodness.
Yeah, sure you are, Raena. Get the lead out is just another one of those silly human x’pressions that’s s’posed to mean hurry up.
So in other words, you just meowed hurry up twice? Like I’s didn’t hear ya’ the furst time. Anyways, what’s up with you; Peein’ everywhere but the pawtty box? Furst you started hollerin’ fur mommy to come carry ya’ to the pawtty box and then ya’ just started peein’ where ya’ stand? I’s mean, really? It’s not very ladycat like, ya’ know?. Have you furgotten that we’re like extra clean and super duper smart? Not to mention, gawjus?
Why don’t you quit tellin’ tales on me and worry ‘bout yourself. Here it is summer time and ‘stead of hangin’ out and watchin’ purrime time on nature teevee from your purrch, you’re sleepin’ the day away in the pawtty box room. Who does that?
Well sissy, the sink in there’s nice and cool. And it’s been really hot ‘round here lately.
You’re right ‘bout that, Raena. We’ve definitely had the hots this past week. Mommy says it’s only gonna get hotter, so me guesses we better get used to it. ‘Course, that brings me to the furst Blessin’ me’s grateful fur this week, air conditioning. We don’t have to try to find a cool spot, the whole house is a cool spot.
That’s so true sissy. And we’ve got purrlenty to eat, and a mommy who luvs us unconditionally. We sure are Blest kitties. I’s mean, did you see all the noms we got? ‘Pawrently there was a sale, so mommy stocked up on one of our faves, Primal freeze dried rabbit.
Yep Raena, me saw it. And, she just ordered 2 big o’le bags of litter. She says it was on sale fur half purrice.
That’s great sissy, but maybe ‘stead of buyin’ litter, she should’a stocked up on piddle pads.
Well Raena, maybe me’s peein’ outside of the pawtty box has somethin’ to do with that stinky purrfumed clay litter we tried out last month. Mommy plans on throwin’ it out when our new litter gets here.
What x’cuse are ya’ gonna use then sissy? Ya’ know, when you still pee on the floor?
Why don’t you not worry ‘bout it Raena. Hmmmpht Besides, me used the piddle pad, not the floor. So, what’s the furst Blessing you wanna count this week?
Well sissy, like always, I’s wanna give fanky fanks fur all our amazin’ furiends. Last week we posted a give away and asked our furiends to nominate their favorite shelters to receive a Cat Amazing Shelter Kit of their own. Fanky fank you all fur your nominations. We put all the names into Random Picker and asked it to choose a winner. The lucky shelter that will be receiving an amazin’ purrize is Safe Haven for Cats in Raleigh North Carolina. We hope they enjoy their Cat Amazing as much as we do. We have the most wonderful and generous furiends in the universe. I’s can’t ‘magine life without ‘em, can you?
Yeah Raena, Furiends are always a great Blessing, and you’re right, ours are the greatest. Every day we ask God to Bless them and their families.
Ya’ know sissy, I’s been thinkin’…
Oh No Raena, don’t let your head explode. When you start thinkin’, somehow, we always seem to get into trouble. What do ya’ say we do less thinkin’ and take a nice afternoon nap?. Maybe we can play when it cools off some. Me seems to ‘member we got a new toy this week. Mommy hasn’t takin’ it outta the box yet, but it’s s’posed to be guaranteed to appeal to our sense of kitty adventure.
Really sissy? Then how can you take a nap, knowin’ we have a new toy that we haven’t even seen yet? Where is it? I’s wanna see the new toy now!!! You can nap ifin ya’ want, but I’s gonna go have a little chat with mommy.
You do that Raena. In the meantime, we’d like to remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. Fank you all fur bein’ such amazin’ furiends. We luv ya’ll bunches and bunches.
Don’t furget sissy, we’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies.
Till the next time……………………………………………………………….Be Blest!!!
Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We furinally got some sleep and are ready fur the IndyCat 5000.
Raena!!! What in the world are you meowin’ ‘bout? Just what is the IndyCat 5000?
Y, It’s a race…isn’t it sissy? Ya’ know, fur cats with wheels?.
Uh, No. Raena, there’s no such thing as a race fur kitties with wheels. And me thinks the real race you’re thinkin’ ‘bout is the Indy 500 fur crazy men in cars.
You mean they let crazy men in cars race, but they don’t let us kitties race? That doesn’t seem fair.
Who said life was fair, Raena? Me knows you didn’t hear that ‘round here. Nuffin’ ‘bout life is fair, ya’ just make the bestest of what life throws at ya’. We’re purretty blest ‘round here, but even fur us, things don’t always go as planned.
Ain’t that the truth, sissy. We’re so grateful to have the new power chair, but it seems a bit strange. Mommy said she was gonna have to call mr. Travis back out to fix it. Ya’ know, mommy’s really tall, so it looked really funny when she wheeled up to the counter to make us brekky and couldn’t even see over the counter, much less reach it. Seems mr. Travis thought mommy was either really really tall or has really really long arms.
Yeah Raena, he delivered it on his day off and had several other chairs to deliver, so he didn’t make adjustments to it the day he dropped it off. Mommy got the directions out last night and learned she’d have to take the whole seat off to make it taller. Since it’s too heavy and bulky fur mommy to meow-neuver, she’s gonna have to have mr. Travis come out and do it fur us.
I’s sure hope he can come soon sissy. I’s can’t wait to take it fur a spin.
Me’s sure you can’t. While we’re on the subject, mommy thought it would be helpful ifin we ‘splained a few things ‘bout power chairs in general. We have a furiend whose mommy has been wantin’ one, but we don’t think she’s considered everythin’ that comes with it. We hope her mommy’s up to readin’ this posty. The furst thing to consider is how long it’s gonna take to get a power chair. As many of you know, we’ve been waitin’ fur well over 6 months. And, this isn’t our furst power chair. Mommy’s had one fur goin’ on 20 years now. Ya’ might be askin’ yourself what difference does that make?. Well, ifin you’ve already had a powerchair, then you’re guaranteed to be approved fur another one, so long as your old chair is a full 5 years old. Gettin’ approved fur one initially can take even longer. There are exceptions, but don’t be surpurrised ifin it takes up to a year to get approved fur your furst ever powerchair.
Ain’t that the truth, sissy. Once you’ve gotten your powerchair, there’s lots of other things to take into account. Lessen you live in a handicap ‘pawrtment or home, you’re gonna have a lot of trouble reachin’ counters and cabinets and stuffs. Ya’ can’t detach anythin’ on a powerchair. The foot rest can fold up, but the wheels come out ‘bout a foot from the actual seat in both the front and back, and they can’t be removed. The joystick controller on the arm also extends about a foot out from the actual seat. Obviously, ya’ can’t remove it either.
Yep Raena, and a really big thing to consider is that the power chair is bulky and heavy. It can’t be pushed ‘round like a manual one. And, ifin the batteries die or somethin’ goes wrong, you’ll be without your powerchair till a repairman can come out and look at it. That could take anywhere from a few days to 6 months. In the meantime, you’ve got nuffin’ to help ya’ get ‘round. Trust me when me says, we luv our powerchair, and livin’ without it is a real pain, but, it ain’t fur everypawdy. Ifin you’re gettin’ ‘round with a manual chair or walker/cane, ya’ might wanna think twice befur wantin’ a powerchair.
We hope our sweet furiend unnerstands that we’re only tryin’ to look out fur ‘em when we tell ya’ these things ‘bout a powerchair. Under the right circumstances, they can be a great big help, but they can also be a hinderance ifin you’re x’spectin’ to make adjustments to it off and on when ya’ need to get to counters or up close and purrsonal to furniture and appliances. Anyways, that’s the low down as bestest we can ‘splain it. Of course ifin anypawdy has any questions, we’ll be happy to answer ’em as bestest we can. And, we’ll meow lots more ‘bout our new powerchair startin’ in February with our Service Cat postys. Trust me, ya’ don’t wanna miss those. Mommy says this chair ain’t nuffin’ like the ones she’s had in the past, so there’s likely to be lots of fun and x’citement comin’ your way.
Yep Raena, kind’a like mommy runnin’ off the sidewalk and into the grass yesfurday. Kittens!!! Did you see the look on her face?
I’s think mommy thought she was gonna end up face down in the dirt, sissy. She sure did look funny. Eyes big as saucers and holdin’ on fur dear life. MOL Guess we better wrap it up, mommy needs to call mr. Travis. We hope to be by to visit everypawdy soon. I’s gonna go see ‘bout those races. Surely there’s somewhere we kitties can compete?.
We also wanna ConCatulate our furiends Erin the cat Princess, Gracie of Animal Shelter Volunteer and The Tribe of 5, Feline Opines fur winnin’ the heated pet mats and cat shelf in our recent give away. We can’t wait to hear how much ya’ll luvs your purrizes.
(Dezi sits quietly eating her breakfast, while Raena gazes intently out the front door from her perch. Seeing something in the distance, Raena sits up with her ears pointed towards the front at alert. Suddenly, Dezi hears the loud familiar roar of the lawn crew’s terrible and possible cat eating machines.)
Run fur your life Raena!!! They’re here!!!
(Dezi meows as she runs down the hall leaving a half eaten bite on the floor)
(Raena runs after Dezi in a haze and meows)
What?! Why?! Who?! Where?!
(Raena stops at the end of the hallway at the bedroom door and looks back towards the living room and now closed front door. Raena hears a familiar voice piercing through the commotion of all the loud machines.)
Dezi!!! Raena!!! Girls, come eat your breakfast. I won’t let those stupid lawn men get ya’ll. You’ve got nothin’ to fear. Come on girls, I’ve closed the door. It’s safe. Come and eat your brekky.
(Raena appears first looking puzzled at why the front door is closed. None the less, she moseys over and takes a few bites of her breakfast and rubs against mommy’s legs to get a little loving. Dezi emerges from the bedroom with her fur all in a ruff and paces back and forth in front of her plate and Raena’s.)
It’s okay Dezi, You’re safe. I love you darlin’. Just eat your breakfast and ignore those silly men out there in the rain.
(Dezi takes a few bites and suddenly hears the sound of the leaf blower on the front porch trying to blow the wet leaves around)
Run fur your life!!!
(Dezi meows as she runs down the hallway again. Again, Raena runs after her, and again, she stops at the end of the hallway at the bedroom door and then looks back at mommy)
Sissy, all this runnin’ is makin’ mine’s tummy rumble. I’s don’t think mommy’s gonna be very happy ifin I’s chuck mine’s brekky all over the floor. Why are we runnin’ anyways? Those silly men can’t get past mommy. You know how mommy is, she barely cracks the door open when those kind’a peeps come knockin’. And so far, I’s not heard any thunder boomers. So the way I’s see it, is, it’s all good and we should just go and eat. C’mon, let’s go eat.
(Raena takes a few steps toward the living room and looks back)
Sissy? Are you in there? Are you lissenin’ to me?
(Dezi meows from UTB <under the bed>)
Me heard ya’ Raena. You’s go ahead and eat ifin ya’ want. Me’s gonna stay here a little longer. Me thinks me sees somethin’ that requires some more investigatin’.
(Raena meows excitedly)
What do ya’ see sissy? Is it another one of those flyin’ yucky bugs like I’s found the other day?
(Raena runs UTB where Dezi is)
(Dezi hisses so loudly mommy can hear it in the living room over all the noisy lawn crew machines and the girls hear a voice from the living room)
Girls, play nice!!!
Sorry mommy. No Raena, me didn’t find a moth. Why are you still here anyways? Me thought you were gonna go eat your brekky?.
I’s was sissy, but you said you found somethin’ and I’s thought you might need mine’s help.
Well, me doesn’t. Me’s been doin’ this a lot longer than you have, so me’s sure me can investigate it all by meself.
Well, okay sissy. But ifin It, whatever It is, gets ya’, don’t say I’s didn’t try to help. I’s gonna go eat mine’s brekky now. I’s don’t hear those noisy machines anymore anyhow.
(Raena heads back to the living room to eat her breakfast, and Dezi moves to the bedroom door and lays down looking toward the closed door. Raena meows loudly from the living room)
Hey Dezi, the lawn crew’s fur sure gone. Mommy says she’s fixin’ to open the door so you can see.
(Raena starts her head bob and bite over her plate)
(Mommy crawls to the door to open it and sees Dezi at the edge of the bedroom and calls to her)
C’mon Dezi, it’s okay. They’re gone now, so come eat your brekky.
Me’s comin’ mommy. Me was just keepin’ you safe from the UTB monster. Do you need some help crawlin’ back to the sittin’ lift chair?
Thank you sweety. I really appreciate you keepin’ me and your sisfur safe. Now you come eat brekky and let me keep you safe darlin’, okay?. I can get to my chair by myself, you just eat.
(Dezi eats a few bites and then heads up the cat tree for a short morning nap)
What a meownin’ we’ve had. Me will never unnerstand those stupid lawn peeps tryin’ to mow durin’ the storms. They sure do make a mess. Fank the cats our little birdies already flew off from their nest on our porch. Me thinks we deserve some treats today.
Treats? Did somepawdy say Treats? I’s want some Treats. How ‘bout our grass? Is that grass Valentine sent us ready yet? Did we get any Treats in that Chewy box the other day?
Yep Raena, mommy said our grass is almost ready. Me can’t wait to munch down on a few blades of that tasty green grass. And we did get treats to review this month. Let’s go make “The Face”, so mommy will give us some. And then me’s gonna take another nap. But befur me furgets, we have a winner fur the Animal Hearted Gift Card. A meowsy big ConCats to uncle Pete over at Timmy Tomcat’s bloggy.
Trust me Raena, you ain’t no where near grown up. There’s purrlenty of time befur you have to make those kinds of decisions. As a matter of fact, me invited Alberto and Oliver of the Feline Opines over fur a play date next week when mommy has to go back to the dental surgeon fur her check up. Maybe we could just have a pawrty?
A pawrty? Like mine’s birthday pawrty?
Not your birthday pawrty, Raena. Mommy wants to be here fur that. But maybe like a purree birthday pawrty. We could invite Shoko and Kali, Snoops and Kommando Kitty, Kosmo, Phenny, and you could ask Simon, and maybe Teddy would like to come. And some of me’s cat scout furiends might wanna come too? And maybe…
We fur sure gotta invite Nellie, sissy. (Raena meows under her breath) I’s gotta find out ‘bout this minx thing.
Of course we’ll invite our dear furiend Nellie. Hmmmmm This is startin’ to look like a birthday pawrty. Maybe we just stick with Alberto and Oliver next week and well get invites out to everypawdy to come over fur your birthday pawrty on Furiday April 21st.
Oh sissy, that would be Pawsum!!! I’s can’t hardly wait. Ya’ reckon everypawdy will come?
Sure they will Raena. (Dezi crosses her paws behind her back and meows under her breath) And ifin they don’t, we’ll still have a good time.
Oh sissy, you’re the bestest sissy in the universe. (Raena tries to hug Dezi)
Yeah, yeah, okay kit, that’s enuff. Get off me now.
Fanky fank you sissy. I’s also wanted to announce the winner of our LumaSoothe give away. Ya’ know it was mine’s furst ever give away, and it was so much fun. I’s wanna do that again. Anyways, the winner is awnty Vicky Denison of the Eastside Cats. We see some happy, purrin’ cats in the very near future.
That’s great Raena. Me luvs give aways too. We should also tell everypawdy that the pawsum peeps over at LumaSoothe are still offurin’ $20.00 off the purchase of the LumaSoothe thru April 22, 2017. Just click the foto below and enter coupon code: dezizworld to save.
They were really great peeps to work with sissy. And we should tell everypawdy, to stay tuned. We have another pawsum give away comin’ very soon. (Raena looks around and sees mommy getting dressed) I’s gotta go get ready. Mommy has her regular monthly doctors ‘pointment today, so we’ll be ‘round to visit everypawdy just as soon as we can. We’re also linkin’ up with the Pet Parade.
What makes you think you’re goin’, Raena? Me just got a new harness too.
Race ya’ fur it sissy. Ready, (Raena takes off running and meows loudly behind her) SetGo!!! MOL
