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 everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. Ya’ know, I’s went lookin’ fur that fly after mine’s dinner and couldn’t find it anywhere. It’s like it just disappeared or somethin’. Mommy said flies don’t live very long in the house, so he purrobably just went off somewhere and died,. I’s sure hope he don’t start stinkin’ up the place. Humans are always talkin’ ‘bout how their house smells like somethin’ crawled up in the walls and died. Maybe it’s flies. Maybe we’re bein’ over run with the little buggers. Ya’ think?
Raena, flies don’t stink up a house when they die. Where’d you ever get that idea? When peeps say those kinds of things, they’re usually talkin’ ‘bout mousies or some other kind’a vermin.
Mousies? You mean there are really in truly live mousies? Have you ever seen a live mousy, sissy?
You mean outside of the pet store Raena? Hmmmmm Well, me thinks me ‘members seein’ one at BlogPaws the year we went. Yeah, there was a blogger there that was carryin’ ‘round the biggest mousy me’s ever seen. Mommy says it was really a rat, but rats schmats, aren’t they the same thing? Least they’re in the same furmily, Dinner rodents. MOL
Really sissy? Have you ever had mousy or rat? Does it taste anythin’ like rabbit or chicken?
Nah Raena, me’s never had mouse or rat. Mommy’s scared of ‘em. She says they have huge sharp teethies and bite. She says they carry disease and parasites, so the only mousies we’re ever gonna get are the furry nip filled kind.
Sharp teethies and disease, huh? Well sissy, I’s think I’s fine with only gettin’ the furry nip filled mousies. I’s don’t want anythin’ that might send me back to the V-E-T’s office. No way.
Me either Raena. You know, several of our furiends hunt mice all the time, and me doesn’t mean the furry nip filled kind.
Well sissy, I’s guess ifin they enjoy it, then it’s okay. You know, different strokes fur different kitty folks. Ya’ know, I’s can’t ‘magine any kitty choosin’ mousies over nip. Kittens, I’s luvs nip. Nip toys, nip mats, nip plants, nip any and every way. I’s just luvs the stuffs.
Me too Raena, me too. Me’s favorite bein’ the Yeowww nip nanner. Ya’ know, me’s been thinkin’ those Yeowww peeps should be payin’ us as much as we purrmote their silly purroducts.
I’s agree sissy. Ifin they actually paid us, we could buy more nip nanners. Wouldn’t that be fun? Can you ‘magine nip nanners in every room?
That would be fun Raena, but me doesn’t think that’s gonna happen anytime soon.
Well sissy, with all this meowin’ ‘bout nip, I’s think I’s hear some nip callin’ mine’s name. Wanna play?
Yeah, sure Raena, me’s right behind ya’. (Dezi lays down on the cat scratcher and mumbles) Me’s just gonna have a little nap furst.
(Raena runs off to find a toy and looks back at Dezi laying on the scratcher) Sissy?! Let’s play!!!
Don’t furget to paw on over to our Blest Sunday posty to enter our give away and nominate your favorite U.S. shelter or rescue to receive their very own Cat Amazing Shelter Kit.
I’s just wanna help sissy. Do ya’ want me to write our Blest Sunday posty?
No Raena, Blest Sunday is me’s day. Me doubts you really wanna help. Me thinks you’re just nosy and wanna be in the middle of everythin’, all the time. Ifin you’re not the center of attention, you get all jealous.
That’s not true sissy. I’s luvs you. I’s just don’t unnerstand why you got so mad when mommy saw you peein’ on the floor and raced ya’ to the pawtty box room to the litter box. Why would ya’ wanna pee in the floor anyways?
It’s not like me really wants too Raena, but that nasty old pawtty box made me’s wee hurt.
Mommy says the pawtty box didn’t do it, sissy. She says it’s cuz you’re not drinkin’ enuff water. That’s why our meals have had extra au jus (juice/gravy) lately.
Me still thinks it’s the pawtty box’s fault Raena.
Well sissy, least mommy had some medicine left over from your sis Lexi. She said it was gonna make you feel all better. Well that and purrayers. What did the medicine taste like? Mommy wouldn’t give me any.
Trust me Raena, you don’t want any. It tastes yucky.
Really? Ifin it tasted so yucky why didn’t you fight with mommy ‘bout it?
Hmmmpht Haven’t you figgered out by now that mommy always wins? It’s just easier to take the medicine the furst time than to have mommy hold ya’ down and force it down your throat.
Yeah, I’s guess that’s true, sissy. At least we can have fun slidin’ ‘round on all the piddle pads mommy put down.
Me doesn’t think mommy’s too impurressed with your slidin’ games Raena. She nearly tripped over the bunched up pads in the pawtty box doorway last night.
Purrlease sissy, mommy luvs watchin’ us playin’ and havin’ fun.
Normally she does Raena, but me’s not so sure ‘bout all your slidin’. Me’s purretty sure “RaenaBelle, stop that” doesn’t mean she’s happy with what you’re doin’.
‘Course it does, sissy. Mommy says that all the time. Wait, where are ya’ goin’?
Me has to go pawtty. And me’s sure mommy would get mad ifin me went on the carpet.
Ya’ better use the pawtty box sissy. I’s will ask all our furiends ifin they could spare a purrayer fur ya’. We are so Blest to have so many peeps that luvs us. Unfurnately, it’s stormin’ and cold here again, but I’s sure mommy will take you fur a stroll in our new stroller the next time mr. Sunshine comes back. That’ll fur sure make ya’ feel better. Right sissy? Sissy? Uh Oh, I’s see mommy comin’ down the hall with that syringe full of medicine.
Ain’t no point in runnin’ and tryin’ to hide Raena. Mommy knows all the hidin’ spots. Me fur sure ‘purreciates any purrayers me can get. Sick or not, stormy or not, we are so very Blest to have so much luv. And even tho’ me knows mommy doesn’t like it when me doesn’t use the pawtty box like me should, mommy still luvs me. We’re so Blest to have had some medicine in the house and a mommy who knows what to do. And, we’re so Blest to have our new stroller. We are indeed very Blest kitties. We’d like to remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your life. As long as you have luv in your life, you are Blest.
That’s so true, sissy. We’re also linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies.
