Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Meowllo? Is anypawdy in here? Sissy, come here, I’s need your help. Purrleeeeease…Nuffin’ be workin’. I’s can’t get anythin’ on this machine to work. I’s tried all the browsers and I’s pushed buttons that I’s don’t even know what they’re fur…and nuffin’. What’s wrong with it sissy?
Why are you askin’ me Raena? How should me know what’s up with the computer? Why don’t you ask mommy?
She’s busy. She keeps pokin’ a pin in that box with all the lights (modem) and tryin’ to call somepawdy, sissy.
(Mommy A finally picks up the cell phone to call the internet provider after trying to reset the modem numerous times to no avail. The automated system picks up and asks a lot of questions, altho’ the opportunity to speak with a live person isn’t one of them.) Uh Oh Raena, me has a feelin’ this day just went from bad to worse. Mommy hates talkin’ to those silly machines. And did you hear it tell her that a live operator wouldn’t have any more infurmation than it did? Seems the innernet’s out all over ‘round here. Guess it’s a good thing we got that smarty pants fone or we wouldn’t know that even.
The innernet’s out?!! What do you mean the innernet’s out?!! How does that even happen? What are all our furiends doin’? How are we s’posed to check our mail, or edit our fotos or get our posty out? How are we gonna survive? We neeeeeeeed the innernet, sissy. I’s got plans to make and things to do and…
Slow down Raena and take a deep breath. Furst of all, the whole innernet ain’t out all over the world, just ours. Well, and maybe everypawdy within a hunnerd miles of us. And, the silly machine said they’re aware of it and they’re tryin’ to fix it. So, hopefully it’ll be back on soon. Most ‘purrtantly, our furiends will unnerstand. These things just happen sometimes, and there’s nuffin’ we could’a done to stop it. Hopefully, it won’t be out long.
How can you be so calm, sissy? I’s still have so much left to do to get ready fur your pawrty next week.
There’s still time to send in your pawrty fotos.
Me really ‘purreciates all the work you’re puttin’ into me’s pawrty Raena, but me’s sure it’s gonna be great. Me never wanted you to be so stressed out. Me wants you to enjoy it too. Ya’ know, cuz you didn’t really get to have a pawrty fur your special day this year, me was thinkin’ we could both enjoy this bash, ‘specially since you’re feelin’ better.
Y, Fanky fank you sissy. That sure is nice of you to share your catabration with me.
‘Course RaenaBelle, what are big susfurs fur?. (Dezi mumbles under her breath) Besides, mommy would make me share whether me wants to or not. Anyways, (Dezi turns and meows to Raena) Me’s sure there’ll be purrlenty of food and fun fur everyone. (Mommy A picks up Dezi and puts her in her harness) MeOW Wait a minute, where are we goin’? The last kitty out that door didn’t come back lookin’ too good. Me’s not goin’…Hisssssssss
I’s wanna go, take me mommy. Me, me meeeeeeeeeow.
Ah, votin’. ‘kay, me doesn’t mind goin’ then. You can’t go till your eyes are all better Raena. Mommy doesn’t wanna take any chances with infection ‘n stuffs. Don’t worry, we won’t be long, we’re just goin’ up the street. (A short time later, Dezi and mommy A return from the polls with news)
RaenaBelle, oh, there you are. Hey we heard the innernet’s out till some time tomorrow (Wednesday). We ran into the innernet fixer at the polls and he said they had a transfurmer out and had to order a pawrt. So, c’mon, let’s go play with our nanners.
Okay sissy, just let me try to figger out how to make a facebutt posty with the smarty pants fone.
You’ve been workin’ on that all day Raena, just give it up. Our fone’s too smart to let us open facebutt. Quit downloadin’ apps ya’ gotta turn ‘round and delete. We’ll have our computer back tomorrow. Till then, we can live like we did befur tech invaded our house. C’mon, me will show ya’ how.
I’s comin’ sissy. Kittens!!! I’s can’t believe peeps once lived without tech. (Raena shakes her head while trying to imagine what it would be like to not have computers and technology)
Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Hey sissy, I’s think we got a new neighbor. I’s saw peeps cartin’ stuffs in to that ‘pawrtment on the end there fur the last couple of days. I’s sure hope all their stuffs didn’t get soaked durin’ the storms. Can you ‘magine sittin’ on a soppy wet chair? Ugh (Raena shudders and turns back to look out the door again.) I’s bet it would stink too.
Actually Raena, me can ‘magine it. Our ‘pawrtment flooded a few years back and everythin’ was wet and yucky. It took furever to get the management peeps to do their job and get us dried out. Are you sure you saw ‘em carryin’ in furniture stuff? Ya’ know, it might just be somepawdy cleanin’ up the ‘pawrtment after the last purrson moved out. Anyways, me thought we were gonna play CK’s amazin’ facts game.
I’s don’t know why you kitties don’t wanna purr along with mine’s business plan?.
Oh yeah. I’s just luvs learnin’ things ‘bout our furiends. I’s hope lots of kitties, woofies and peeps play along. Maybe I’s can even get mine’s next business idea from it. Ya’ know, the plans fur Purrs with a Purr-Puss aren’t goin’ so good. Lots of kitties don’t seem to wanna work. They’d rather give their purrs away fur a few measly treats. I’s keep tellin’ ‘em we could be rich, rich, rich and have tons of treats. Y, We could even make enuff green papers to buy our own treat farm. But no, no kitty seems innerested. And well, we can’t be every where ourselves, so looks like I’s need another plan.
Back to the drawin’ board, Raena.
Sorry ‘bout that Raena. Me did think that was your bestest idea so far. Anyways, let’s answer these questions and see what happens. Me’s sure you’ve got ideas just waitin’ to come out. Me will take the furst question.
1. What is your favorite day of the week?
Truth is, we luv everyday. Mommy says each day we have together is a Blessing. But, me is pawrtial to Sundays cuz that’s the day we get to meow Fank you fur all our Blessings.
2. What is the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten?
It’s mine’s turn now sissy. Altho’, we don’t actually eat many strange things ‘round here. I’s think I’s might have eaten one of those crazy gnats once. And I’s have been known to eat a dried up left over piece of food that you spit out onto the floor. Other than that, we don’t really get many strange things here.
3. What small business would you like to start?
Well, I’s tried to start up Purrs with a Purr-Puss. And, I’s not completely sure it’s a dead idea. But I’s will be lookin’ into other ventures. Maybe I’s could get peeps to pay us fur the honor of feedin’ treats to kitties. Or maybe…
Enuff Raena. Let’s move on to the next question.
4. What is the best food on a hot summer day?
When it’s really hot, me doesn’t really wanna eat much. But, me has had a few licks of ice cream befur, and it was purretty tasty.
5. When have you had a small decision bring big consequences?
Me fur sure wants to answer this one. The day me met mommy, me chose to go to her ‘stead of play with me’s 10 littermates. And cuz of that, mommy saved me’s life and brought me home with her to live and luv furever and ever.
6.What vegetable do you like?
We’re kitties and obligate carnivores. We don’t like vegetables. Any vegetables. Come to think of it, is mommy an obligate carnivore too sissy? You know, she don’t really like veggies either.
That’s a good question Raena. Me has no idea. But, you’re right; mommy doesn’t like veggies.
7. Where are you most likely to be at 8:00 on a Saturday night?
Anyways, it’s me’s turn. Ifin we’re on time, then we’ll be eatin’ at 8:00 on any night. Least that’s the case at this time of year. Now, in the winter time, we eat at 7:00 p.m.. You oughtta take the next one Raena. You’re the one that watches too much tv and uses all those silly terms you learn.
8. What slang word or phrase do you like to use?
Are those slang words sissy? Hmmmmm I’s don’t really have a favorite. I’s hear mommy say somethin’ ‘bout kissin’ her lily white sometimes. Not sure what her lily white is, but…
9. Did you ever want to change your name? If so to what?
Me would never wanna change me’s name. Mommy said the minute me chose her that me was her Destiny, and that’s what she named me. She just changed the spellin’ so me could be unique.
I’s wouldn’t wanna change mine’s name either sissy. Since mine’s name means new beginnings, I’s think it’s purrfect.
10. What food do you crave?
Rabbit!!! Me can meow fur both of us on this one. And pizza, we do luv a good pepperoni pizza.
11. If your life had a sound track what song would you pick for it?
12. If you could have lunch with anyone living who would it be?
This one’s easy peasy and would be the same fur all of us. We’d luv to have lunch with all of you, our dear furiends.
You’re so right sissy. That would be such an amazin’ lunch. This has been lots of fun. ‘Course as always, when we get sentimental, we shed a few tears. Mommy says music speaks to the heart and can soothe the savage beastie.
Me thinks that’s why she sings to us so much Raena. She’s tryin’ to calm you down. MOL
Funny sissy, very funny. Let’s go play. I’s think you got a package fur one of your cat scout projects. And, we need to visit a few furiends durin’ the storm’s lull.
Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s gotta tell ya’, these catputers sure are sensitive. Since the last round of storms, ours just ain’t been actin’ right. We take all the purrcautions. Kittens!!! Mommy won’t even let us on it ifin she even suspects storms are rollin’ in. A few little gray clouds come rollin’ in and mommy shuts us down; so there’s no way we should be havin’ ‘pooter issues. And yet, every meownin’ it’s the same thing. We try to wake up the beast and the beast keeps snoozin’ till mommy does a whole reboot.
Meowin’ of boots Raena, me had no idea our catputer even wore the things. Did mommy ever say where the catputer’s feet are, cuz me doesn’t see ‘em.
Me neither sissy. I’s guessin’ with mommy’s techy skills, she doesn’t really know either.I’s thinkin’ she’s just tellin’ us what it says on the screen. She said it keeps tellin’ her to mention somethin’ ‘bout memory management. We have no idea what that even means. The last time the catputer crashed mommy got one of those detachable memory devices cuz ‘pawrently she takes too many fotos to actually store on the catputer alone.
Yeah Raena, me heard her sayin’ the other day that we were gonna need another one of those soon, cuz we’ve already used up most of the 2 TB on the one we have.
Well, I’s sure hope she figgers it out soon sissy, cuz it’s makin’ us be even later than we already are. Anyways, on another note, didn’t we have fun yesfurday with Prancie? I’s luvs havin’ furiends over fur play dates.
Me too Raena. Me’s thinkin’ you should invite all our furiends over fur me’s Birthday pawrty. You are plannin’ to throw me a pawrty right?
Uh, Sure sissy. (Raena meows quietly) Kittens, I’s got sidetracked and totally furgot ‘bout sissy’s Birthday. I’s gotta get with mommy and figger somethin’ out. (Raena walks over and nose bumps Dezi) So, you want a big pawrty? I’s thought you might purrfur to just have a small get together with me and mommy. You know, you’d get lots of extra lap luvvin’ time and lots of nip and vine.
Don’t you dare try to pull a fast one over on me RaenaBelle. Me wants a pawrty and you meowed that you’d plan it.
I’s did sissy, and I’s will. Just you wait and see. Mommy and me have big plans, yep, big plans. Meowin’ of, I’s better go check on a few things and make some calls. I’s want everythin’ to be purrfect. We oughtta remind everypawdy to get in on the #PranciesPrayer give away here. I’s got a little time to play befur I’s get to business. Wha’d’ya’ say, wanna play ketch?
Till the next time……………………………………………………..Be Blest!!!
Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. What a day we’re havin’. Ya’ know, we watched some show over the holiday that talked ‘bout how some peeps seemed to have more trials than others. There was this counselor sayin’ that it wasn’t true, it just seemed like it. Let me tell ya’, it is true, and we’re the purrfect example of it.
RaenaBelle, quit whinin’, it never helps anythin’. Mommy will figger it all out or go to jail, me’s sure of it.
Jail sissy? Nopawdy said anythin’ ‘bout jail. What are you meowin’ ‘bout?
Well the lease recert peeps said that somepawdy at mommy’s doctors office wrote a letter to the ‘pawrtments that said the doctor didn’t know anythin’ ‘bout the meds she takes and hasn’t since 2011. That started a whole mess that means that mommy may have to pay extra rent fur all those years we’ve lived here. We can barely affurd to pay the rent we have now, we sure can’t affurd more rent. So, they may take mommy away to jail since she can’t pay. They already gave her an eviction notice this meownin’. Cuz of that letter, they said she’s not in compliance with our lease.
Is that why mommy’s so upset sissy? Are we gonna lose our ‘pawrtment? Will we go to jail with mommy? Does jail have cages? I’s don’t wanna live in a cage again?.
Nope Raena, they don’t let kitties go to jail with their peeps. But, mommy just said she ain’t goin’ to jail, somethin’ ‘bout no debtors purrison. She said she didn’t know how she was gonna fix this, but that we’re not to worry ‘bout it. She says it’s fur mommy’s to worry ‘bout, not sweet little kitty girls.
Guess that means she’s gonna be too busy today to play with us or help us visit our furiends, huh sissy?.
Purrobably Raena, but at least we’ll still have a home to live in. Mommy said this is just the latest in a long line of bad news and purroblems she’s been given this month. Anyways, what do ya’ say we go play and let mommy take care of the business.
Okay sissy, that sounds like a plan. Let me just tell mommy that I’s’ll be ready ifin she needs me to go anywhere with her. Ya’ know, to help her with her ‘purrtant business.
Till the next time……………………………………………………….Be Blest!!!
