Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle, comin’ to ya’ live from the chaotic Three Belles Ranch. Let me tell ya’, there’s stuffs everywhere. Our canopied cot disappeared into a box last night. Sissy and me were watchin’ to make sure it went in the keep pile. We might not use it very offen, but it’s ours and we might want to some day. I’s better not see any of our nip nanners goin’ into a box. That would be a travesty.
What do you know ‘bout travesties Raena?
I’s asked the lady in the box (Alexa <Echo Dot>) sissy and she said it was the purrfect word. Sometimes she can be helpful, just not so much when she starts talkin’ outta the blue at 3 in the meownin’.
Yeah Raena, me will never unnerstand why she just blurts out things sometimes. Did you hear mommy yellin’ at her the other day?
When the lady said “I’s lissenin’” sissy?
Yep Raena, mommy hates that drop in mode. Mommy says nopawdy should be droppin’ in on us, so she doesn’t unnerstand why the lady would need to be lissenin’. The furst time she told her to stop. When it happened again a few minutes later, mommy was yellin’ at her and askin’ why she was lissenin’ and who was lissenin’.
It’s kind’a funny how the lady shut up after that, huh sissy? Bet she won’t lissen in any more, least not fur a while.
Let’s hope so Raena.
I’s haven’t seen any of those aliens ‘round fur a few days sissy. Ya’ reckon they went back to their home?
Raena, they’re workers, not aliens. Mommy says they took the week off.
That seems kind’a silly to me. Last week it was fureezin’ cold ‘round here, but this week is like Spring. It was actually 71° here yesfurday.
Don’t worry Raena, that won’t last. The temps are on the decline all week. It’s winter time in the south, that means ya’ never know what you’re gonna get.
Uh, Sissy, I’s thought that was kind’a normal ‘round here no matter what time of year it is?.
Well yeah Raena, that’s true. Ya’ know, normally me would be askin’ mommy to take us out fur a stroll. But, you’ve been hoggin’ the stroller every wakin’ hour of every day.
I’s just makin’ sure I’s ready and that mommy doesn’t furget to take me with her. You know, all these boxes might be fun, but it’s also a little worrisome. You know us kitties don’t like change.
Me knows what you mean Raena. But, me’s purretty sure mommy won’t furget us. Me’s done this befur ya’ know?. It might not have been me’s most favorite thing in the world, but mommy never furgot ‘bout tryin’ to keep me and sis Lexi comfy and happy. Me has no doubts she’ll do the same fur you and me.
Well that’s good to know sissy. Ya’ know, I’s thinkin’ we should write a little mini series on movin’ and remodelin’ the ranch with kitties. After all, we’re more accustomed to chaos than most kitties and yet we still find all of this a little distressing.
Me agrees Raena. Another of your plans that aren’t so bad. We also need to start thinkin’ ‘bout what we’re gonna do fur mommy fur Valentine’s day. It’ll be here befur ya’ know it.
You mean our handsum Persian furiend Valentine has a day all to hims self that we’re s’posed to gift to mommy?
Uh No Raena, me thinks it’s purrobably the other way ‘round. Me’s purretty sure he got his name from the holiday. Anyways, let’s go put our heads together and see what we can come up with.
Okay sissy, I’s luvs head butts and nose touches.
Till the next time……………………………………………………………….Be Blest!!!
Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. Hold on just a minute, I’s checkin’ our emails. I’s thought I’s saw somethin’ here a minute ago…now where did that email go?. (Raena searches the email subject lines and finally sees one that says “you’ve won”) Here it is mommy, open that one. Read it to me mommy, read it now. (Mommy A slowly and sarcastically reads the email to Raena.) WooHoo!!! Our troubles are over!!! We’re rich sissy!!! We’re rich mommy!!! We can have as many scratchers and cat trees as we want now. (Raena zooms thru the house and up the cat tree and back down. Raena zooms thru the house and knocks a few knick knacks from their spots onto the floor. She finally runs back to the living room and jumps up on the boxes behind the chair) We’ve won the New Zealand lotto!!! Mommy, how many dollars is a million pounds? What are we gonna buy furst? I’s think we should buy a real Three Belles Ranch and make lots of cat houses so we can save all the kitties who need a home. Sissy, what do want to buy furst?
Uh Raena…we don’t play the lotto. We fur sure don’t play the New Zealand lotto. That’s a scam.
A scam? No sissy, they didn’t ask fur anythin’. They just need us to click this link. Hurry mommy, click it fast. We don’t want ‘em givin’ our money away to somepawdy else.
RaenaBelle, you know mommy ain’t gonna click that link. There’s a rule, ifin it sounds to good to be true, then it purrobably is. And trust me, us winnin’ a lottery we don’t even play is way too good to be true.
But sissy…We got an email?. Surely they wouldn’t lie to us?.
Well Raena, that’s one of the hard lessons you have to learn ‘bout life.. Just cuz you don’t lie, doesn’t mean everypawdy else on the planet tells the truth. There are scammers ‘round every corner. That’s why we’re so fankful fur all our furiends. They’re the bright light amidst all the crazy.
So, we’re not gettin’ a million pounds? We can’t really buy a ranch or a bunch of scratchers?
No Raena, we’re not gettin’ a million pounds. We’re not buyin’ a ranch and we’re not buyin’ a house full of scratchers. Altho’ we kind’a already have a house full of scratchers.
Yeah, but most of those are worn out; or you hurled on ‘em.
Not all of ‘em Raena. Besides, we still have our sisal scratchers. They’re still in great shape. And mommy got us the new scratcher lounger from the green papers we got fur Christmas.
Oooooh Sissy, meowin’ of gifts, did you see what came in the mail yesfurday? We got not one, but two new Cat Dancers. Mommy found a 2 pack at Wally world. Ya’ know our Jewish furiends from the J-Cats didn’t even know what it was.
I’s luvved the cat dancer when I’s furst came here.
Yeah Raena, me ‘members me’s furst Cat Dancer. They used to be more ‘spensive and mommy grumbled ‘bout payin’ so much fur a few pieces of rolled up papers on the end of a wire. But once she saw how much fun it was fur me, she said it was priceless. ‘Course, that didn’t stop her lookin’ fur a bargain when it came to buyin’ a new one. Me just can’t wait to play with it.
Me too sissy.
Well, don’t break this one. Me doesn’t even know how you could break a metal wire.
Hmmmmpht I’s don’t recall that sissy. And, ifin I’s don’t recall it, it didn’t happen.
Let me guess, you heard that on teevee? Cuz you know, ifin the evidence shows you’re guilty then you’re guilty whether you ‘member it or not.
Evidence? There ain’t no evidence sissy. One day we woke up and it was just broken. You could’a broke it yourself and now you’re tryin’ to blame it on me.
Sure Raena. Me had it fur a whole year befur you came and two days after your arrival it magically breaks? Just like all our electronic toys. You’re just hard on toys, that’s all.
Well at least I’s don’t hurl on everythin’ sissy. That’s so gross. Anyways, ifin we’re not gettin’ that lotto money, then all mine’s plans fur the day are shot. I’s so wanted to go shoppin’. Hmmmpht I’s guess we better finish our brekky.
Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s comin’ to ya’ live from the Three Belles Ranch. You are never gonna believe what mommy did last night.
RaenaBelle!!! You don’t blab everythin’ the minute it happens.
But sissy, it’s tell all Tuesday. I’s thought that meant we told everythin’.
Kittens Raena, that mostly applies to product reviews, not everythin’ ya’ know. Altho’ ifin ya’ told all you know, it couldn’t be more than one post.
Are you suggestin’ I’s don’t know very much sissy? Cuz mommy says I’s a very smart kitty girl.
Of course mommy would say that Raena, she’s mommy. That’s what mommy’s do.
So, you’re sayin’ mommy lied?. Did she lie when she said you were a smart kitty girl, too? Cuz you know how mommy feels ‘bout lyin’.
Check out mine’s toe beans.
Me didn’t call anypawdy a liar Raena, and fur sure not mommy. Me just meant that you’re too young to know too much.
Welllllllll, You just might be surpurrised at what I’s know sissy. I’s know purrlenty. Hmmmpht
Whatever. Ifin you know so much why are you constantly tryin’ to cover your meals with our toys? You know they don’t belong in our plate.
It’s called subliminal communication sissy. Our furiends Travis and Teddy get bacon every week, and I’s want mommy to give us some. So, I’s hopin’ mommy’ll get the message ifin she has to keep pullin’ our bacon toy outta mine’s plate. Some day that light bulb thingy’s gonna go off and she’ll start servin’ us bacon. It’s gotta be good fur us; mommy says they used to call it the other white meat.
Don’t tell me, you learned ‘bout this subliminal stuffs on the tee-vee, right?
Hmmmmm I’s don’t really ‘member sissy, but it sounded like a good plan.
You and your plans, Raena. Me doesn’t think this one’s gonna work. After all, it’s not like mommy eats bacon either. How’s she gonna give us soemthin’ we don’t even have? Travis and Teddy’s pawrents eat bacon on the regular so that’s why they get it. Anyways, me seems to ‘member you didn’t even eat the last bacon mommy gave you.
That wasn’t fair. I’s had just got out of surgery and wasn’t totally awake. Who wants to eat while they’re sleepy drunk? Technically, that means mommy owes me a piece of bacon sissy.
Sure Raena, whatever you meow. In the meantime, we need to finish our brekky. Get our toys outta your plate and let’s eat.
Okay sissy, but I’s wanna play later. (Raena gobbles down her breakfast while thinking up ways to ambush Dezi, while Dezi eats and thinks up ways to avoid playtime with Raena.)
Till the next time………………………………………………………….Be Blest!!!
Meow…MeOw…MeeeeOWwwwww Mommy, come here and see. Me used the pawtty box. You need to come clean it…Now!.. MeOWWwww (Dezi sits on the human toilet and meows)
Ya’ know sissy, you could’a used the litter robot and it would’a cleaned itself.
Why would me do that Raena? Me wanted mommy to come back here to me. Besides, me really had to go and couldn’t wait fur it to finish cyclin’ from your visit. (Mommy A makes her way to the bathroom and cleans the litter box. As mommy A makes her way back to the living room, Dezi runs towards her and stops short. Mommy A grins and turns back to see Dezi.)
Are you gonna get me Dezi? (Mommy A bends, looks away and back at Dezi and says…) Don’t get me baby, oh noooooo (Dezi crouches, wiggles her back side and zooms past mommy and jumps on the scratcher and starts scratching. As mommy A approaches Dezi crouches again and reaches out and pats mommy A’s leg as she walks by.)
You’re it mommy, me got ya’. (Raena jumps off the back of the chair and onto the scratcher with Dezi) Hissssssssss Stop Raena, me’s playin’ with mommy.
But sissy, I’s wanna play too. (Dezi and Raena exchange paw pats and Dezi runs up the Liberty cat tree followed by Raena) I’s got you sissy, you’re it!!!
You can’t get me Raena, you’re not it, mommy is.
Really sissy? By the way, what is it?
What? You ask too many questions Raena. It’s just it. That’s the name of the game.
Well, I’s think that’s kind of a silly name fur a game sissy. (Raena jumps back onto the chair by mommy A and begins to bathe while Dezi does the same atop the cat tree.)
That may be Raena, but me luvs playin’ it with mommy.
I’s like to play with mommy too, ya’ know. Not as much as I’s like cuddlin’ with her, but it’s a close second. Anyways, can you believe this is the last Furiday of the year sissy? Purretty soon it’ll be mine’s birthday again.
Yeah well, not fur a while Raena. We gotta get thru the New Year furst. Me’s plannin’ lots of cuddles with mommy as the clock strikes midnight.
Well sissy, you better be purrpared to share, cuz I’s plannin’ cuddle time with mommy too. We may not be supurr-stitious, but mommy says your year will be full of whatever you’re doin’ when the clock strikes twelve on the New Year. So, I’s plannin’ on a year full of luvs and cuddles.
Of course you are Raena. C’mon, we need to finish our brekky. Me heard mommy on the fone with the doctor’s office yesfurday and me thinks ya’ll are gonna have to go out in a bit.
You’re right sissy. I’s gonna run link us up with Comedy Plus fur Feline Furiday. Be right back.
Sure thing Raena, me will just keep mommy’s lap warm till you get back.
