Chatting Cats: There’s No Stress Here

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle, live from the chaotic Three Belles Ranch. (The skies rumble and groan and cause the floors and windows to vibrate.) Hey sissy, wait up. Whare are you goin’, It’s just a little winter storm. Mommy says anytime the weather has such drastic extremes from highs to lows or lows to highs, a storm is sure to follow. Guess you were right, those purretty spring days are gone. 

 

Raena lays on floor

 

 

 

          Yeah Raena, me doesn’t like the storms outside, but storm mommy’s  on the loose inside. Me’s not sure which is worse. MOL  

 

Ain’t that the truth sissy. I’s like break times bestest, when mommy sits down and gives us extra luvvins. Ya’ know, we read that February is Nat’l. Responsible Pet Owner month. That got us to thinkin’ ‘bout what that really means. Ya’ know, we all know respawnsible pet owners purrmote spay/neuter, and the over all health of their kitties and woofies. It means to feed us appropriate foods and keep us safe. But what ‘bout our emotional health; ‘specially durin’ stressful times like storms or packin’ up to move?  

 

          It doesn’t even have to be somethin’ that big Raena. You know us kitties aren’t always big fans of change. Just rearrangin’ the furniture is enuff to really stress us out. Mommy says that’s one of the reasons she rearranges what she can offen. She says desensitizin’ us is one way to help keep our stress levels down when somethin’ big happens.

Really sissy? That’s why she does that? I’s just thought she was bored. MOL 

 

          That’s purrobably true too Raena. Mommy does say that after a while of lookin’ at the same old same old, the walls start closin’ in. Me’s never seen the walls move, but ifin mommy says so, they must. 

 

I’s didn’t know our walls moved sissy. I’s saw somethin’ like that on the teevee the other day; it was scary. I’s glad mommy moves things ‘round so we don’t get squooshed. (Raena cleans her toe beans) Flat cats would take on a whole new meanin’. MOL 

 

Raena bathes, toe beans

 

 

 

 

          Funny Raena, you’re a real comedi-cat. 

  

Fanky fanks sissy. Do ya’ think I’s could get a gig as a stand up comedi-cat? (Dezi rolls her eyes) Anyways…We’ve written several Service Cat postys on movin’ and remodelin’ with kitties and settin’ up a Decompression Room to keep stress levels down. But, we don’t really have the room fur that, and we really need to be with mommy. Ya’ know, just in case she needs us. 

 

          And just cuz we don’t wanna be away from her Raena. We’re far less stressed when we can be with mommy than when we’re sepurrated from her. ‘Course a good roll on a pawsum nip toy never hurts either.

 

Dezi rolls around on catnip toys

 

 

 

That’s true too sissy. So, mommy takin’ sit down breaks to give us that extra luvvins is also how we all relieve the stress. Which of course, helps our emotional health. We’re cuddle cats, lap cats, snuggle buddies, whatever ya’ call kitties who be all up in the humans business all the time. But, even ifin your kitty is totally the opposite, he/she still needs ya’ to take care of his/her emotional health. 

  

          Maybe even more so Raena, after all the opposite of us would be a kitty who lives with a lot of stress and fear in their lives already.  

 

You’re right sissy, I’s didn’t even think ‘bout that. Fur those kitties, speakin’ calmly and tellin’ ‘em what’s goin’ on and reassurin’ ’em that they’re still your nummer one is the bestest way to help them; besides a Decompression Room. 

 

          Even with it Raena. Mommy believes that on some level we totally unnerstand, and that tellin’ us what’s goin’ on each step of the way helps keep us calm.   

 

Raena gets lap lovingI’s luvs you mommy.

 

 

 

‘Course we unnerstand her sissy. Hmmmmpht We are cats after all. Looks like mommy’s thru with her break, so let’s go see ifin we can help. Sooner or later she’s gonna have to open the door to the furbidden room (closet). I’s gotta hone mine’s sneaky skills to get in there and explore.

          Raena:  I’s comin’ sissy. It’s nice to see the sun and have a little warmth. It’s been so cold here lately. Fanky fankfully, we have mommy to cuddle with.

True Raena. Me heard that today is National Cuddle Up day. Me will never unnerstand why humans think they need a day fur cuddlin’. Me says every day’s a good day fur cuddlin’.  

 

Raena gets lap loving -profile selfie

 

 

 

          Me too sissy. Humans seem to think they need a day fur everythin’. Is their memory so bad they have to have days to remind ‘em to luvs?  

 

Maybe Raena. Fankfully mommy doesn’t need a reminder to luv us. She may be furgetful, but when it comes to us, she always ‘members to luv us and take care of us.  

 

          Ya’ know sissy, we should send out some big hugs to all our furiends. After all, huggin’s pawrt of cuddlin’. 

 

Yep, and everypawdy knows how much we luv huggin’ Raena.

 

Raena hugs Dezi while she lays on the brown cat tree

 

 

 

          Aaaaaaaaw Sissy, you luvs huggin’ me? 

 

No Raena, not you. Me meant mommy. Stay back, don’t touch me. Kittens!!! You’re so touchy feely. (Dezi licks and wipes her fur)  

 

Dezi bathes, With all this fur it's hard to reach everywhere

 

 

 

          Cuz I’s luvs you sissy.  

 

Me luvs you too Raena, but…you stink!!!   

 

          Sissy, that’s not very nice.    

 

Seriously Raena…(Raena turns and flips her tail high)  Ugh!!! RaenaBelle, go tell mommy to clean your bloomers!!! No wonder you stink!!! Grrrrrrrrrrrr Mommy!!! You need to clean Raena’s bloomers NoWwwwwww!!! 

 

          (Mommy A gets a whiff of the stench as Raena rubs against her legs and reaches to pick Raena up so she can clean her bloomers)  No mommy!!! I’s don’t want you to clean mine’s bloomers. (Mommy A gets a wash cloth and turns on the water with one hand while holding Raena with the other. Raena begins to twist and turn trying to break free, but mommy A’s wise to Raena’s antics and holds on tight while cleaning the stinky bloomers.)  No mommy, No!!! (Raena’s tail flicks wildly back and forth as she tries to roll in mommy A’s hand.

 

Raena bathes atop the chair back

 

 

 

     Be still honey. You know you’re not gonna clean this, so somebody has too.  

 

          You’re gonna owe me extra cuddle time mommy. (A freshly cleaned Raena heads back to the living room and jumps up on the chair to bathe) I’s sure am Blest to have a mommy who’ll clean mine’s bloomers. I’s fur sure don’t want to touch that stuffs.

 

Raena gets lap loving

 

 

 

We are indeed Raena. Meowin’ of Blessings, we wanna fank awnty Susan fur the green papers. And fanks to those who sent green papers fur Christmas, mommy did get us that new scratcher lounger. It’s still in the box till things settle down and we have some stability in our home sitch. We also got a new cat dancer since Raena broke our last one. Let me tell ya’, that girl is hard on toys. 

 

 

Dezi rolls around on catnip toys, kitty nip heaven

 

 

 

          Hey, don’t furget mommy’s new watch sissy. Mommy’s a bit old fashioned and relies on a watch to tell time. And it seems every watch she owns needs batteries. She’s always wanted an automatic watch that winds itself, so she used a few of the green papers and bought one. It came all the way from China. But hey, it was dirt cheap at only $7.00. MOL 

 

Mommy A's automatic watch gift

 

 

 

It looks purretty tho’, doesn’t it Raena? And, it tells time, so mommy’s happy with it. Guess in the end, that’s all that really matters. Anyways, like we do each week, we’d like to remind you to take a minute today and every day to Give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. And, we wanna say a meowsy big Fank you fur bein’ Blessings in ours. 

 

          Don’t furget the furst Sunday Selfies of the year with the Kitties Blue, sissy. I’s gonna run link us up right now. Then we can get back to cuddlin’.

We’d been tryin’ to get in the package fur a week, so mommy decided we could have them befur we went to bed Christmas Eve. Technically it was already Christmas, but since we hadn’t slept yet…Anyways, We got the most pawsum Made With Luv catnip toys. Their daddy makes ‘em to sell. And let me tell ya’, you won’t be findin’ a more potent toy anywhere fur $4.00. He makes large mouseys and cigars that come 1 to a package and mini cigars, firecrackers, bombs and candles that come 2 to a package.

Oh sissy, I’s luvs these toys. They smell so divine and are just the right size fur carryin’, bunny kickin’ and swattin’. It sure was nice of them to send ‘em to us. Fanky fank ya’ Trixie, Buster and your daddy. After we had a little sleep it was furinally Christmas day. We had a few bites of brekky and then mommy read us the story of Jesus birth. While He wasn’t actually born on Christmas day, that’s when we celebrate. Then we got to open our gifts from Valentine and awnty Kerry. We got this really funky bird toy and the cutest little mousey. They also sent mommy an adorable journal and some decorations.

          Yep Raena, we got the cutest little mask that reminded them and us of me’s Birthday/Gotchaday pawrty. Mommy knows better than try to put somethin’ on me’s face, so she tried to get you to model it.

Yeah sissy, that wasn’t happenin’. But it does have the coolest feathers. I’s don’t know why mommy wouldn’t let me play with ‘em. Fanky fank ya’ Valentine and awnty Kerry, we luvs our gifts. Then, mommy got some really great socks, dish towels and the cutest measurin’ spoons among other things from awnty Cindy. Fanky fank you so much.

          We also got some great gifts from some angel scouts Raena. We got a gift card to amazon, some great nip mouseys, chew mouseys, mommy got some m & m’s, good smellin’ hand soap, some really special coasters, and today we got a gift card fur Pizza Hut. WooHoo  We’re gonna have pizza.

 

We’re havin’ pizza now sissy? But I’s just ate mine’s brekky?. 

 

          No Raena, not right now, but soon. 

 

Raena sleeps curled up in mommy a's lapMine’s favorite place to nap or sit is mommy’s lap. This is the good life.

 

 

 

Oh, okay sissy. I’s wanna be purrlenty hungry when it gets here. We also wanna fanky fank awnty Vonda, awnty Cindy, our dear sweet furiend, the gawjus Princess Erin, and her handsum Prince Valentine and awnty Kerry fur the green papers. Some were given fur a specific purrpuss, but mommy also said we were gonna get that new scratcher lounger when things settle down a bit. And, we went to a catmas eve pawrty on twitter and won a Chewy gift card donated by our adorable and sweet furiends, Peekaboo, Butterfly and angel Smokey. What a Blessed Christmas we’ve had. 

 

Dezi sleeps in mommy A's lapMe’s favorite place in all the world is mommy’s lap.

 

 

 

          Yeah Raena, we really are livin’ the good life. Two little kitty girls born into uncertainty and given lives full of furever luv. Just thinkin’ ‘bout it gives me leaky eyes too. 

 

Dezi lays in a box

Chatting Cats: Nip Nugs And Vine

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. You are never gonna believe what happened yesfurday. White stuffs came fallin’ from the sky!!! Sure ‘nuff, little balls of hard white stuffs were everywhere. They were too small to be dippin’ dots, and mommy said they weren’t edible anyways. Did you see ‘em sissy? 

 

Dezi sits pretty in the wheelchair

 

 

 

          Yeah Raena, me saw ‘em. Fankfully, they didn’t stick ‘round or get any bigger. Those little balls weren’t snow. Not that we want snow, but ice is fur sure not somethin’ we want. It’s way too early fur that. Besides, did you hear mommy say we’re gonna have to move right after Christmas? 

 

Raena lays atop the cat tree looking down

 

 

 

Move? She was only kitten, right?  

 

Dezi sits pretty in wheelchair

 

 

 

 

          Nope Raena, that fur sure wasn’t the face of a joke. And any time mommy starts talkin’ ‘bout needin’ to talk to lawyers and file complaints, it ain’t no laffin’ matter. Anyways, guess that’s why mommy said we weren’t decoratin’ fur Christmas this year. And with the car on the fritz with a busted gasket, we’re purrobably not gonna be able to go out light seein’.  

 

Oh well sissy, that means more cuddle time with mommy. I’s so luvs cuddle time. 

 

Dezi plays with nip toy

 

 

 

          Me hopes so Raena, but you’ve never been ‘round durin’ a move. Trust me, it ain’t as fun as it sounds. It ain’t like packin’ an overnight bag and stayin’ in a hotel. It’s like wall the wall boxes and stuffs everywhere. Won’t be no slidin’ down the hall on piddle pads fur you.  

 

Raena plays with kitty nug

 

 

 

Really sissy? Fur how long? Where are we goin’?   

 

          Who knows Raena, mommy’s lived in her car more than a couple of times in her life. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see. Anyways, It’s Christmas time and time to think ‘bout good things and fun. We’re gonna be postin’ our final and all inclusive Gift Guide Furiday. Me can’t hardly wait.

 

Raena plays with Kitty NugI’s so glad you don’t like this toy sissy.

 

 

 

 

Me neither sissy. I’s think we’ve picked out some really pawsum stuffs.  We even sourced some great silvervine fur all those kitties with a more discernin’ palette. Sorry you didn’t really like the kitty nug that was pawrt of your birthday purresent. But I’s was glad you liked some of the things in the Pawrty Pack.  

 

Dezi licks lips tongue out

 

 

 

          Fanks Raena. Me saw you enjoyin’ the nug, so you can have it. Mommy had thought we were gettin’ at least a couple of ‘em based on the description. Maybe we only got the one cuz we bought it with a steep discount. Anyways, just give me some of that silvervine and valerian root and me can be one happy kitty girl. 

 

Raena guards the kitty nug

 

 

 

Valerian root? I’s never tried that sissy. Is it good? 

 

Dezi peeks around the corner

 

 

 

 

          Well Raena, ifin you’re nice to me today, I’s might ask mommy to share some with ya’. 

 

Raena covers her eyes while playingAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw Fanky fanks sissy.

 

 

 

 

That’s really nice of ya’ sissy, fanky fanks. 

 

Dezi stands on cat tree looking back at Raena on upper ledgeDon’t even think ’bout it Raena…

 

 

 

          Yeah, sure Raena. Just no jumpin’ on me. And get back, me doesn’t need any hugs right now. 

 

But I’s luvs you sissy. 

 

Dezi sits on cat tree looking back at Raena on the ledge

 

 

 

          Yeah yeah, me luvs you too Raena. Now seriously, go away.

 

  

Okay sissy. Wanna play?
