Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Ya’ know, I’s a young kitteh so all this tech stuffs has been ‘round mine’s whole life. Catputers, cell fones, tablets and such are normal sights fur me. But mommy talks ‘bout a time when she didn’t have any of these things. I’s can’t ‘magine what life would’a been like without at least a catputer. But sure ‘nuff, mommy says there was a day when nopawdy had these necessities.
Raena, what are you meowin’ ‘bout now?
Fones and stuffs, sissy. You know that married at furst sight show we were gonna sign mommy up fur gave all those couples a challenge the other day to let their new spouses look thru their fones and all their messages and stuffs. Seems several of the men didn’t want their wives goin’ thru their fones. They claimed it was an invasion of purrivacy. And mommy said those girls oughtta run fur the hills. Mommy said that she ‘members when nopawdy had their own purrsonal fone to carry ‘round with ‘em, and any call or letter came to one address/home. Husbands and wives shared a fone, and didn’t make calls or send messages in secret, lessen they were doin’ somethin’ they ought not be doin’. So, it got me to thinkin’…
Oh MeOW You were thinkin’?
Sissy, that’s not nice. You better take that back or I’s gonna tell mommy. You won’t get any treats lessen you be nice. You know the rules, treats are fur good kitties.
Fine Raena, me’s sorry. What were you thinkin’?
Fanky fank ya’ sissy. I’s was actually wonderin’ ifin any of our furiends felt the same way as mommy? We don’t have a daddy, but I’s sure ifin we did, mommy would wanna know who he might be callin’ or sendin’ messages too; ‘specially ifin he had his own purrsonal fone. And why is it okay to keep secrets t’ween married peeps? We don’t have any secrets here. Mommy tells us everythin’ and we meow to her everythin’ too.
Well Raena, me doesn’t think secrets are okay in any relationship. Then again, maybe that’s why we don’t have a daddy?. One of those men from the show told his new wife that the minute she went thru his fone, they were done. You heard mommy tell her to run. After all, what could be so “purrsonal” or “purrivate” that his wife couldn’t see it?
Yep sissy, when he said that, I’s fur sure wanted to know what was in there.
Me too Raena. Mommy says, ifin ya’ wanna make a girly suspicious, that’s the way to do it alright. Maybe it’s a good thing we didn’t get mommy signed up fur that show. Any man who comes into our lives aren’t gonna be able to have any secrets.
That’s fur sure sissy, we meow ‘bout everythin’.
Yep Raena, that we do. As fur that trust stuffs, it has to be earned. Even then, it should be okay fur husbands and wives to share everythin’, includin’ fones.
Psssst Raena, can you keep a secret?
I’s agree sissy. So, what ‘bout ya’ll? We wanna know what all of you think ‘bout this topic and keepin’ secrets t’ween married peeps.
And kids too, Raena. Do ya’ll think it’s an invasion of purrivacy fur your spouse to go thru your fone or fur pawrents to go thru their kids fones? Inquirin’ minds wanna know. MOL
Oh sissy, you’re too funny. Well, guess we oughtta wrap it up. All this meowin’ ‘bout trust and secrets has mine’s head spinnin’. Let’s go play.
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.
