OMC Me gives mommy an inch and hers takes a mile. Meowllo evewypawdy, happy TCIF (Thank Cat It’s Furiday). When we last left you da lectwicians had finally got all ow wires uncwossed and put back togedder to giv us power again and we wuz havin’ company comin’ hoo wuz bwingin’ us a big supwise. We did get mommy to visit a hunnewed and sum of ow furiends bloggys yesfurday, but she wusn’t up fur takin’ dictation so we kuld make a posty owselves. Sumtimes it’s weally hawd fur a cat to get good help. We know lots of ya’ know zactly what weez talkin’ ‘bout. Oh me knows we shuld cut hers sum slack after all even tho’ she wusn’t up fur takin’ dat dictation she wuz all ‘bout givin’ us luvvin’ and she did let us visit sum of ow blog furiends. And da weason she wuz down wuz cuz she had overdid it fur us. Mommy did get a little more cleanin’ dun afur ow company came, but she didn’t get to evewyfin’. She sez she’s savin’ sum of it fur spwing. MOL
Anyways, Wednesday came and mommy had hoped to get wound a little earlier than normal. Of course dat didn’t happen. And as always we knew sumfin’ wuz up, and did evewyfin’ we kuld to distwact her. Kulda had sumfin’ to do wiff da fact dat hers wuz puttin’ on hers “purretty” face. Me had to get in on dat action. Me luvs mommys makeup. Hers bwushes awe so soft, and da powder feels so good. And of course when she’s twyin’ to draw a stwaight line wound hers eyes wiff dat tiny little bwush me has to nose bump hers awm. She needs dat extwa luvvin’ and help. And then just when she wuz makin’ hers lashes blacker than black da fone wang and it wuz ow company. They wuz a little bit lost and a lot early.
Can me help you mommy? Me wuld like sum powder too.
See GPS never weally worked here in ow town, but a foo years back we went fwu dat e-911 addwess change dat a lot of towns and cities did, so dat emergency workers kuld find you ifin yous wus usin’ a cell fone. Yeah wight!!! Now nopawdy can find anypawdy and evewypawdy has to pay da tax man. When there’s a gawage sale in town now, da listin’ in da newspaper tells da name of da purrsun havin’ da sale, not their addwess. Udderwise nopawdy wuld come; cuz they wuldn’t be able to find ‘em. Aaaaah da joys of small town livin’. MOL Anyways meez getting’ off twack again. Mommy had told ow company to be sure and purrogwam ow nummer into their fone so hers kuld giv them diwections or go and meet them and let them follow hers to ow house. So mommy wuz twyin’ to giv them diwections and put on hers mascawa at da same time. Till hers got black stuff all over da place. You know mommy has dawk circles and jumbo luggage wound hers eyes anyways, she dusn’t need anymowe black. She finally wealized hers kuldn’t do boff at da same time, and just talked on da fone and helped them find us. When mommy got up to wave out da door, me got da message dat sumpawdy wuz comin’ and they wuz here.
Well after da last 2 days of stinky sweaty men bein’ in ow house cuttin’ da lectwicity and stompin’ back and forff fwu ow house, me kuldn’t magin’ just hoo wuz comin’ up da walk nex so me took off fur pawts unknown. Better known as UTB. It wusn’t long afur me heard da voices of women chattewin’ and laffin’ and then me saw mommys feet headin’ toward da bed. And then me heard sis Lexi let out hers twademawk Hisssssssss and whine. And mommy sayin’, “Oh honey it’s okay. Don’t you wanna meet awnty Ann? She’s come all this way to meet you and bring you a surprise. And sissy let out anudder Hisssss and low wumbly growl. Don’t know when mommy’s gunna get it fwu hers fick skull dat weez not get nearly as ‘cited as fast as her. But then me heard those girly voices cooin’ over Lexi and tellin’ hers how purretty she wuz and what gawjus eyes she had and hers wespondin’ wiff a foo more hisses and growls. Now as you all know she ain’t got no teeff so it’s not like she wuz gunna bite anypawdy, she just wanted to show off hers technique. And then da hissin’ and growlin’ stopped. And sis Lexi joined me, UTB. Whew…it’s all over.
What’cha gettin’ weady fur mommy?
And then…there wuz mommys hands gwabbin’ onto me. OMC Meez had to show off too, so me Hissed da biggest hiss me kuld get out to show meez dispurrleasure. Then mommy sed in dat voice, you know da one, so sugawy sweet it’s posed to mask da bad fing dat’s comin’. “Oh Dezi you’re way too purretty to be actin’ like this. I promise you’re going to love awnty Ann and hers furiend.” And against meez purrotests down da hall to da livin’ room we went. And then me saw them, 2 very purretty ladies; lookin’ down da hall at me and cooin’. Aha Take dat sissyfur, they fink meez bootyful too and dat me has gawjus eyes too. And then they offered soft hands and stawted pettin’ me. Well this ain’t so bad after all. At least they’re much purretier than da lectwic men. They smell better too. So when mommy put me down me had to show off meez belly and meez rollin’ in da nip nana technique. And me had to check out da new purrses in da house. Not nearly big nuff to hold me, but they did hav sum innewestin’ smells. So me had to add meez own smell to those dat wuz alweady there. Hmmmpht When they get back home their furries awe gunna know dat they cheated fur sure. Meez gunna make certain of dat. MOL
Isn’t mommys new coffee cup cute? It sez it all purrfectly.
Awnty Ann had bwought us a package of glitter balls and sum of those pawsum shwimpy tweats. Even mommy got a gift. Hers got a weally cute Cat Mom coffee cup. Yous know what dat means don’tcha? Mommy’s gunna want to hav a whole cup of hot coffee outta hers new mug. They visited a little more and then took mommy to lunch. Since hers went wiff udder hoomans, mommy let me hav da time off to stay home wiff sis Lexi and play. And play me did. Just wait’ll you see what else we got. Yous gotta wait just a little longer cuz mommy wants to get just da purrfect fotos and all da infurmation hers needs to help me wiff dat posty. Anyways, when mommy came home she came bwingin’ us a pizza. They took mommy to da Pizza Hut and also ordered Lexi and me ow very own pepperoni pizza. It wuz soooo delishus. Fank you sooooooo much awnty Ann, fur evewyfin’. We know we wusn’t on ow bestest behavior, but we do hope yous will come back and see us sumtime. Mommy had a gweat time and wuz so happy to hav met you in purrsun.

Meowllo everypawdy, da weekend’s here. WooHoo Well yesfurday fur National answer yous cat’s question day we let you choose da questions. And we got sum good ones dat’s fur sure. See, we ask mommy questions all da time and she answers ‘em wight then and there. And usually ifin hers can’t answer ‘em hers will find da answer. Whether dat means duin’ wesearch or askin’ sumpawdy els, so weez didn’t weally hav anyfin’ to ask hers. And we usually do da same fing wiff all of you. Ifin weez wunnewin’ sumfin’ ‘bout ya’, weez just ask. Yous always answer, so Fank you fur dat. Now me will get on to da question and answer portion of this posty.
Da first question by ow pawsum furiends da Trout Town Tabbies wuz: Why dusn’t mommy grow us more gwass in da house?
Mommys answer: I ought to. the girls love their grass, but we just don’t have the room to put a football field of grass in the house, and I get tired of stepping in and cleaning up the grass puke. MOL A little grass goes a long way.
Ow nex questionwuz fwum meez fellow Cat Scout and furiend Shoko fwum da Canadian Cats. She wanted to know where me sleeps.
Meez gunna answer this one. Me sleeps wight beside mommy. We hav a twin size hospital bed and mommy sleeps as faw over to one side as hers can to make room fur me to curl up at hers waist. Sis Lexi sleeps between mommy legs and rests hers head on mommys thigh.
Ow nex question got asked by a kupple of ow wunnewful furiends. Timmy fwum da Tomcat Commentary and Annabelle fwum Manx Mnews wanted to know what toy wuz boff Lexi and meez favowit.
Sissy and me talked this one over a while and came to a consensus. Ow favowit toy wuz da Cat’s Meow. we actually played wiff it so much we ran da motor out and it dusn’t work anymore. So, now ow favowit toys awe those wiff da nip in ‘em. You know da nana, da made wiff luv toys weez won and ow ball and twack toys.
Ow furiends da Florida Furkids wanted to know what ow favowit pizza is.
OMC It’s Pepperoni!!! Weez luv, luv, luv da pepperoni pizza. Dat weminds me of a question me has, when can we hav anudder pizza mommy? Oh, mommy sez soon.
Anyways on to ow nex question which comes fwum ow adventurwous furiends da Purrfect Kitties. They wanna know ifin weez ever seen a weal live mousey.
Well… me hasn’t ever seen a weal live mousey but mommy sez she finks me wuld be a weal hunter and killer. Sis Lexi on da udder hand…she has seen a weal mousey and she joined mommy up in da chair while hers bwofur Lucky chased it down and made short work of it. C’mon now, weez posh pampurred inside Service kitties. MOL
Ow dear furiend Tribble hoo got a new bwofur last year has da nex question. And she wants to know why weez hav no bwofur and do we want one. MOL Even tho’ this be a fun question it has a very serious answer, so meez gunna let mommy take this one.
Dear sweet Tribble after losing Devon to cancer and then Lucky and Ransom who both had UTI’s that essentially robbed them of their lives and me of them, I just couldn’t go through that again. Although females can get UTI’s it is more of a risk for males. So after Ransom died I prayed and asked God too send me a sweet little girl to love. And He did. He sent Dezi to me, and she is perfect in every way. I love all the boys that are in our lives including your sweet brother, but my heart couldn’t take another loss like that. So that’s why the girls don’t have a physical brother. You and your mommy are family to us, your not just online friends. That means your family is our family, including Indy.
Da nex question is by one of ow pawsum Facebook awnties. She’s been wiff us since almost da beginnin’. And she wanted to know when mommy had hers accident and ifin meez still fwaid of da loud noises.
Mommy had hers accident November 21, 1994. And yes, there awe sum loud noises dat still scare me. And meez purrawlly gunna fweak out again this year when spwing finally awwives and da lawn crew shows up fur da first time in mumffs. MOL
We saved this question fur last, cuz it might take a little time to answer. Ow furiends Pipo and Minko fwum We bees Siamese want to know how we learned to be Service Cats.
Dat’s a loaded question and wuld take a lot more time than we hav in this posty. We posted back on April 19, 2014 ‘bout Shad, Mommy’s Original Service Cat who twained herselff. And after she died and mommy wealized dat kitties kuld be twained to do such fings mommy stawted twainin’ hers very nex kitty, Devon. And while volunteerin’ wiff a wescue gwoup mommy adopted Lucky and then Lexi and twained them also. Devon helped wiff their twainin’ as well. We posted a little ‘bout Lexi’s twainin’ back on April 21, 2014 in Lexi Becomes a Service Cat. And finally me joined mommy and Lexi and they hav boff had a hand in twainin’ me.
As we hav had quite a foo new furiends join us in wecent mumffs we will be tellin’ more stories ‘bout ow twainin’ in da future. Although ow posts awe in no way meant to be a twainin’ manual as we don’t cover minute by minute. It wuld be way too boring. Twainin’ isn’t always fun or funny. We twy to post the joyous and funny times, and even lots of da oopsies. Just know dat there’s a lot of time put into twainin’. We wusn’t born Service cats, but any cat can be twained to become one. And we also posted the diffewence between a Service cat and Therapy cat on April 18, 2014. They awe not the same thing or interchangeable terms. Lexi and me awe twained Service Animals. Me has also been fwu da certification purrawcess to be a Therapy cat cuz mommy likes to giv back to da community when she can and weez not hav munny to giv but we do hav time.
Well, dat wraps up da questions and answers fwum National answer yous cats question day. We hope you learned a little more ‘bout us. As always ifin yous hav a question fur us anytime, just ask. Weez not mind answerin’ anyfin’ so long as it’s wespectful and nice. Yous know weez a rated G bloggy dat wuld be safe fur da peeps gwandchildwen to wead. so just member to keep it clean. There wuz anudder question dat rian asked. Hims didn’t actually ask us, but we wanted to share it. Hims not been feelin’ so good of late and wanted to know why hims sisfurs wus always hovewin’. Hims dad did a gweat job of answerin’ him and we just wanted to say dat we kitties be very empafetic. And when we luv, we luv deep. And we just want ow furmily to be okay. They hover Brian cuz they luv you, as do we. Yous in ow purrayers as is yous furmily.
