Chatting Cats: Watching Out The Door

EDIT: We don’t know when this will post as all internet, phone and cell service went out in our area at 10:30 a.m. Friday 9/15/2017. We have put this post on a loop to publish with the first signal.

 

 

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. (Raena sits on the perch staring out the door and meowing loudly at mommy and the neighbors looking at the car.) Mommy, I’s can see you!!! Purrleeeeeease…let me out there with you!!! MeeeOWwwwwww

          RaenaBelle!!! What is all the caterwaulin’ ‘bout? A kitty can’t take a purropurr beauty nap what with all that noise goin’ on.

 

 Raena lounges on perch and watches the rain out the front door

 

 

I’s wanna be outside with mommy and the new neighbors, sissy.

          (Dezi gets on the cat tree and looks out the door) Raena? Do you see mommy glistenin’ sweating in the sun? It’s hot out there. You don’t wanna go outside. It’s much nicer in here with the air conditioner. Mommy ain’t goin’ nowhere…least not without us.

I’s know sissy, but I’s still wanna be out there with her. She said the new neighbors are movin’ cuz the manager’s harassin’ ‘em. But they’ve been kind enuff to help mommy work on the car. Seems our car’s radiator tank sprung a leak and hopefully that’s the reason fur all that gurglin’ and sputterin’ the other day. The neighbor boy couldn’t check the fans cuz of all the spewin’ water and antifreeze. Mommy says that antifreeze is the reason I’s can’t go outside with her. 

 

          That’s true Raena. Antifreeze is deadly fur us anipals. Unfurtunately some peeps aren’t very careful with that stuffs and we anipals seem to be attracted to it like a moth to a flame. 

 

I’s don’t see how sissy, that stuff stinks. When the car did all that sputterin’ the other day, I’s got all choked up. I’s couldn’t get outta the car fast enuff.

          Me doesn’t know either Raena, but every year lots of anipals end up at the VET cuz of antifreeze poisonin’. Anyways, mommy ordered one of those tanks fur the neighbor boy to put on the car, and we’re purrayin’ hard that’ll fix everythin’. In the meantime, mommy says our surpurrise is comin’ this weekend. And, since she’s been busy all week with the car, she hasn’t gotten to the house cleanin’ that needs to be done. Looks like we’re gonna be helpin’ with that today and tomorrow.

Yep sissy, since mommy can’t actually drive the car, she had to order the pawrt and it won’t be here till Tuesday. Why don’t you run the carpet monster and I’s will help mommy mop.

 

 Dezi vacuums

 

 

     Sure Raena, whatever you say…as if. MOL 

 

Then we can play. I’s can’t wait fur our surpurrise. (Dezi and Raena run off excitedly and play zoomies with the piddle pads in the bathroom

Mewsy Wednesday

Meow mommy. Me luvs you verrrrry much.

 Dezi lays on the arm of the chair looking back at mommy

 

     I love you to baby. Are you ready to write your post?

It’s hard to tell, but the indicator lights are lit up sayin’ to add

water and nutrients. It’s really cool.

 

Me sure is. Me has so much to tell everypawdy. Furst up is our pawsum AeroGarden. The dill is really getting’ big, altho’ you did furget to take fotos. And you even used some of that fresh basil in your pasta gravy the other day. Was it good mommy?

 

 

 Aerogarden control panel

 

     It sure was Dezi. And it was so cool to be able to just pinch off what I needed and have it keep on growing. I can’t wait to be eatin’ salads.

 

Is that what you planted when you cleaned out the AeroGarden earlier this week? 

 

     Yes it is honey. I potted up the basil and dill and put in our lettuce pods. According to the instruction sheet I should be able to start eating salads in about three to four weeks.

Me can’t wait to see it mommy. How are you gonna keep sis Raena out of it?

 

     Well Dezi, I hope at this point, the new has worn off for both of you and ya’ll will let my lettuce grow without bothering it.

 

 Dezi poses by the AeroGarden

 

Me? Me didn’t take off with the pod caps or try to pull the pods out of the base; that was all Raena’s doin’.

 

     Yes honey, I know. But you had your turn at it too. Don’t blame everything on your sisfur. 

 

 Raena oversees the AeroGarden

 

          You tell her mommy. At least I’s didn’t try to eat it all up.

 

 

 

 Dezi pats Raena on the head

(Dezi glares at Raena) Me didn’t try to eat it all up. You take that back!!! 

 

 

     Now girls, let’s not fight. Peace and love. Remember, peace and love are better than sour pusses. Neither of you hurt the garden, so it’s all good.

 

          (Raena drops her head and coyly twists from side to side) I’s sorry sissy. I’s didn’t mean it. 

 

Dezi and Raena chat while laying on the chair

Fanks Raena. Me’s sorry too. Anyways, we’re still bein’ cautious, but optimistic. Mommy’s new helper started on Monday, and things went really well. The worker’s s’posed to work 3 days a week. Today will be the second day, so we’ve got our paws crossed that they show up. We’ll tell you all ‘bout them on Furiday, either way. Anyways, Raena was so fascinated by the whole thing, that she stayed close to mommy and watched it all. Our cat tree got quite the cleanin’. Let me tell ya’, it hasn’t been this clean since the day it came into the house. All our toys got stacked up so the floor could be vacuumed too. 

 

 Raena checks out her toys while stacked up

 

          Yeah, I’s got a little worried they was gonna stay stacked up. So I’s had to see ifin I’s could still play with ‘em in a pile like that. Fankfully, mommy put them all back on the floor after the cleanin’ was done. Whew!!! 

 

 Raena plays with her toys in a stack

Oh Raena, mommy wouldn’t make you play with your toys from a stack. But you are gonna have to learn to stay outta the way.

 

          Why sissy? I’s might can help. 

 

Help? With what? You can’t push the vacuum or the mop. And as floofy as your tail is, swooshin’ it from side to side doesn’t actually mean you’re dustn’. It’s more like you’re scatterin’ all those allergens and dust in the air so none of us can breathe.

 

 Raena watches worker clean the cat tree

Hey, do you need some help there?

 

 

          Well sissy, at least I’s tryin’.

 

     Alright girls, be nice. 

 

          Sorry mommy. 

 

Me’s sorry too mommy. Guess we better wrap it up and get ready. What time are they s’posed to be here?

 

 Raena profile from the back of the chair

          1 o’clock sissy. But what difference does it make; it’s not like we can tell time?. Well, lessen you’re talkin’ ‘bout tummy time. I’s fur sure know when it’s meal time and treat time. Speakin’ of treats, ya’ reckon we could meow mommy into a few now?

Good one Raena, but me doubts it. Come on, let’s go play and take a nap befur it gets too noisy to do so. And don’t furget, we have the fundraiser up (click here) to help mommy get her dental work. We did wanna say, that it seems a lot of peeps got hung up on the cost fur the cleanin’. Mommy didn’t include that in the cost fur the fundraiser cuz she didn’t plan on havin’ it done in the furst place at least not at that office at that price. She just wants to get rid of the painful teeths and infection they’re causing and get the partials so she can still talk and eat and smile with her mouth open again (she’ll be losing most of her bottom teeth). You can also donate directly to our PayPal by using our email address: lexi.dezi@yahoo.com.

This and That Wednesday

Meowllo everypawdy, me hopes you’re havin’ a good week so far. It’s stormin’ here again, and mommy’s been tryin’ to get ready fur this months inspection which happens today. Ifin only me could wrangle da carpet monster or da mop, me could help. But alas, no fumms. Mommy says it’s okay, she doesn’t expect me to do dat kind of work. Whew Me’s sure glad ‘bout dat, cuz me still isn’t sure how me feels about da carpet monster. You know dat thing sucks up everythin’ in it’s path. It’s eaten more than one of me’s toys and they’re never da same when It spits ‘em back out. Me keeps tellin’ mommy she oughtta get one of those little round robotic carpet monsters. They’re much quieter and me’s seen more than one kitty sittin’ on and directin’ ‘em without those opposable fumms. Anyways, enough ‘bout cleanin’. 

Dezi with the Shark Navigator vacuum cleaner
No fumms mommy, sorry me can’t help with da carpet monster.

Da other day mommy told me she had a dream ‘bout a kitten. And then outta da blue da next day one of me’s Facebook awnties pm’d us and said she had dreamed ‘bout a kitten fur us too. Well me thinks they both may be drinkin’ too much coffee. Or maybe somepawdy laced their coffee. Yep it could very well be dat somepawdy slipped ‘em somethin’ in their coffee. You know “dream about kittens” pills?. Fur both of ‘em to be dreamin’ ‘bout kittens sopmething’s gotta be goin’ on. Me’s Facebook awnty lives across da pond and has purrlenty of kitties herself, so dat’s why she’s certain she was dreamin’ ‘bout kittens fur us. And then me saw mommy checkin’ out new kitty stuffs online. Me thinks mommy may be losin’ it.

Dezi: Yeah I'm not laying on the cat tree looking out the door today
Me’s gotta keep an eye out fur da manager. Me doesn’t want her sneakin’ up on me.

Well me’s gonna keep it short and sweet today, cuz ‘tween da weather and inspection, we may not have a lot of time to visit today. Me’s gonna go hang on da cat tree till da manager shows up or da skies start rumblin’. Ketch ya’ll later.

Do you think me should be worried dat mommy’s lookin’ at kitten stuffs?

Till da next time………………………………Be Blest!!!

All Before Noon

Well it’s not even noon and mommy’s been cleanin’ non stop. Course by da time you read this it will be well after noon. Anyways, me tried to help her with all dat cleanin’ but she didn’t seem all dat impressed with me’s attempts. Let me ‘splain. After getting’ up this meownin’ and goin’ thru our normal routine we headed to da kitchen so mommy kuld make sis Lexi and me sum brekky. She always has a drink cup with melted ice from da night afur dat she has to wash up afur getting’ down to da business of puttin’ our noms in our plates. So mommy got out our plates and put them on da prep counter and then turned da water on to wash up da drinkin’ cup. Now lots of ya’ will member dat mommy has times when she doesn’t feel her extremities, da legs, arms, hands and feet. But thru da years she has learned to make ‘em work even when she doesn’t feel ‘em, it just takes a lot of concentration.

Dezi stretching the arch backed pose on the vanity

Well this meownin’ was one of those times. Unfurtunately mommys’ concentration musta been somewhere else, cuz when she went to pick up da drinkin’ cup, it slipped right outta her hand and fell to da floor splatterin’ sticky watered down drink all over da place. She saw it fallin’ and didn’t even try to stop it. And once it hit da ground, she just stared at it pourin’ da remainin’ liquid all over da floor. Me meowed and sis Lexi hissed tryin’ to break thru mommy’s meownin’ haze. Mommy shook her head as ifin to shake off da haze and sed, “Oh my cats, I’ve gotta clean that up.” She reached down to pick up da cup and me saw da puddle of liquid on da floor and went over to mop with me’s floofy tail and paws. Yep, me just walked right into dat puddle and sat down and started da tail swoosh. Back and forth went me’s tail and da liquid went splashin’ even further onto da floor. Me even swooshed sum right up in sis Lexi’s face. Me is such a good helper. And me knew sissy kuld use a drink after takin’ her antacid, so she shulda purreciated havin’ a drink delivered right to her mouth, right?.

Lexi with mouth open laying on the floor
My mouth’s not that big!!!

 

Well it seems nopawdy was impurressed with me’s help cuz sissy hissed at me and mommy threw out da paper towel she had been usin’ to clean her legs with and started hollerin’, “Oh Dezi, NO! Now you’ve gotta have a bath too.” A bath? Uh no, not afur brekky me thought, and took off runnin’. Sis Lexi was in hot pursuit as me’s tail swooshed and continued to scatter sticky liquid thru out da house includin’ more in sissy’s face as she was so close behind me. By now mommy was hot on her tail and hollerin’ da whole time, “Dezi! Get back here, NOW!” Back there, me thought? So does she want me to help or not? You know sometimes you just can’t seem to purrlease anypawdy. Sissy retreated to da bed fur a little tongue and spit bath and mommy scooped me up and to da pawdee box room we went fur a purropurr bath. Me smells really purretty now, and all afur brekky.

Dezi laying on the floor and licking paw
Hmmmmm me thinks mommy missed a spot.

 

Mommy got da floor cleaned as bestest she kuld so we kuld get our brekky afur lunch, and sed she wuld get to da moppin’ with an appropriate tool later. Least da floor, sis Lexi and me ain’t sticky any more and we did get our brekky afur lunch. And mommy finally got to sit down and have a purropurr cup of coffee. Me guesses mommy will still tell peeps dat we can’t do chores like moppin’. You know tomorrow is ifin pets had fumms (thumbs) day. And me bets dat ifin me had those fumms me kulda really cleaned dat floor to mommys likin’. And me kulda made her a cup o’ joe too. And we wuld be able to work da flashy box to ketch some of mommys’ funny antics. Just think of all da things we cats kuld do with fumms. Me wuldn’t have to dictate me’s postys, me kuld drive da wheelchair with me’s paws ‘stead of me’s mouth, and we kuld take over da world. Well, me’s gunna go dream ‘bout all da things we kuld do with fumms.

 

Have you ever had a hazy moment that resulted in a mess?

How would you (or your pet) use thumbs if they had them?

 

Till da next time……………………………………………Be Blest!!!
