MeOW-llo Dear Furiends. It’s time fur a brand new Blest Sunday. Kittens!!! This year has just flown by. Altho’ mommy’s kind’a glad it’s almost over. She says she’s ready to put 2019 in her rear view mirror and purrays next year is better fur us. None the less, we’ve been very Blest this year.
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!!!
It’s finally Furiday. Me thought you would never get here. It’s been a crazy week ‘round here, what with da weather takin’ another turn early in da week with storms a purrlenty and then heatin’ up like a sauna. One day mommy was sittin’ in her chair when me looked over at her and she was drippin’ wet. Sure ‘nuff she was soaked from her head to her toes. And nope wasn’t cuz she had just got outta da shower, it was ‘nuffun’ more than just plain sweat. See mommy has these things she calls purrsonal summers. And let me tell ya’ she was havin’ one of those right then.
Now we signed up fur this purrogram with da ‘lectric company a few yars back dat was ‘posed to save us some money. And so far it has. We’re not sure how it happens, but we have saved a few green papers since bein’ in this purrogram. In da summer our a/c will pre cool da place and then at 2 o’clock when da rates go up, da a/c raises it’s coolin’ temp to around 79 to 80 degrees till 7 o’clock when purrices drop again. And da ‘lectric company gave us this real cool digital purrogrammable thermostat. You know da kind, set it and furget it? Well dat’s ‘zactly what we did, till da other day when mommy just couldn’t stand it anymore.
She got up and said she didn’t care what they was chargin’ purr kw, she wasn’t gonna be sweatin’ in her own home. So mommy got up and went over to da thermostat and there it was, set fur 65 degrees and heat. Yep, da a/c wasn’t on at all. Dat ole thermostat had done switched us to heat. And da actual tempurrture in da house was 86 degrees. No wonder mommy was sweatin’. She was havin’ a bit of heat stroke with her own purrsonal summer. Mommy pushed some buttons and furinally got da air to blowin’ and went and took a cold shower.
What fun dat was.
Raena kept tryin’ to jump up on da side of da tub with me, but there’s nuffin’ to actually grab onto and she’s just too little to reach. She can’t jump on top of anythin’ in da bathroom right now. She’s started usin’ da big girl pawdee boxes but you should see her; she makes a runnin’ jump to get into ‘em. And once she’s inside you wouldn’t be able to see her ifin you weren’t standin’ up over her. Mommy says she’s growin’ like a weed but me will believe it when she doesn’t have to run and jump into da pawdee box.
There’s been a few really cool give aways goin’ on ‘round da blogosphere lately and me’s been tryin’ to win some so me would have some new things fur me’s new sisfur when she arrived. Well me won dat really cool PetSafe Flitter toy from Cody and couldn’t wait fur Raena to arrive so we could open it up and play with it. Me luvs da PetSafe toys so me just knew Raena would too. And me was right, we had a blast playin’ last night. Fanks fur havin’ dat pawsum give away Cody.
Anyways, we’ve been getting’ some really good questions ‘bout trainin’ a Service cat. While we plan to write ‘bout Raena’s trainin’ as we’re doin’ it, we thought we’d give an overview of trainin’ and what to look fur when choosin’ a Service cat to train ifin ya’ll are interested.? The overview nor our training posts will be comprehensive and in no way are they meant to be a training manual. We post them fur entertainment and education. Anypawdy dat tells you there aren’t any oopsies while trainin’ a Service animal is lyin’. Granted, you don’t reward da oopsies cuz ya’ don’t want them repeated, but they happen none da less.
Well me’s gonna go fur now. Da sun is shinin’ and me hopes to go fur a stroll. Mommy says she has a lot to do to finish up our lease recert. papers, but me knows she has to take a break every now and then. Me thought you might enjoy seein’ some of da foto mommy’s been takin’ while Raena and me get used to each other. She found da Cat Dancer toy and seems to luv it as much as me does. And she even shared her new “made with love” nip blanky from awnty Ellen. And it’s Furiday, so me’s joinin’ Rascal and Rocco fur da Pet Parade.
One last thing befur ya’ ask, Raena and me are doin’ good. Me’s not ready to swap spit, lick butts and cuddle. Fur now me thinks nose touchin’ is close enough. Me will keep you all updated.
Would you be interested in an overview post about picking and training Service cats?
Do you have any specific questions you would like answered?
Do you (your human) have purrsonal summers? If so how do you get relief?
Meowllo everypawdy and welcome Furiday. Me knows we’re all happy it’s finally Furiday, right?. Well, it’s also blooper Furiday. Me purrticipated in this once and then me always furgets. Did you know dat fur somethin’ to become a habit you must repeat da action daily fur 3 weeks. Yep sure ‘nuff. 3 weeks and you’re set. Well dat’s what they say anyhow. Anyways, me’s getting’ off track.
This week at Cat Scouts, we had da task of earnin’ a new badge. So me went fur da Olympic Long Jump Badge. Yep, dat sounded like a pawsum badge and one me didn’t have. So me’s all set to go and of course dat meant mommy was in charge of da camera. Well you all know how dat went. Mommys camera skills leave a lot to be desired. MOL You know mommy was late to da digital pawrty. She still had a 35mm camera when we started out on facebook. And then she bought a little $20.00 digital job dat took horrific fotos and broke really fast. So these here digital cameras are way above mommy’s understandin’. MOL You all think me’s getting’ off track again don’t ya’? Surprise, me’s not. Me was tellin’ ‘bout mommy’s experience to ‘splain what happened with me’s blooper foto.
See in da olden days you had to pay fur film to put in dat camera and then ya’ had to pay to get da foto off dat camera. So most fotos were posed. Ya’ didn’t just snap, snap, snap away. And there was no delete or takin’ it back. You paid fur all da fotos, even da bad ones. Anyways, mommy’s still not very good at ketchin’ da action as you can see in me’s long jump foto below. But she tries.
Me also has da names of da winners fur me’s Catit give away. Fank you all fur enterin’ and ConCats to: Pete Hartley, Mary Marchman, and Shoko and Kali of Canadian Cats. Me will be sendin’ ya’ll emails later. Don’t furget ifin ya’ live in New York, you don’t wanna miss out on da Catit Playground event this weekend.
