Zebby with Remember Me Thursday bandana


          (Zebby grumbles under his breath) Like I’s read. I’s don’t know RaenaBelle. Mommy says it’s fur Remember Me Thursday on the 22nd. She says it’s a whole day about me and other anipals like me. All I’s know, is that it’s too big. I’s can’t even walk without stepping on it. And it’s hot

Well, it looks nice. I’s bet there’ll be more foto shoots befur Thursday. I’s also bet we get lots of treats. Ifin we play nice that is. So, suck it up and get ready.

          Hmmmmmpht Maybe I’s’ll just hide out in here. Don’t tell mommy where I’s am.


Raena and Zebby lay in chair

(Raena laughs) Sure Zebby, whatever you say. You think mommy won’t find you? Have you ever been out of her sight fur more than 5 minutes befur she started calling you?


          Well no, but calling me and seeing me are two different things.


Raena lays in chair

Sure they are Zebby. However, when mommy calls, you come running and meowing and chirping at the top of your lungs.


Zebby lays with paws covering his face

          C’mon RaenaBelle, don’t be making fun of me. You do the same thing. Can we help it if we luvs mommy so much we just wanna be with her?


Raena lays in chair

Nope Zebby not at all. We are very Blest to have a mommy. We’re Blest to have each other. We’re Blest to have the greatest furiends in the universe. We’re just really Blest kitties.


Zebby lays with paws covering his face

          I’s agree with ya’. Meowing of Blessings, we wanna thank awnty Vonda fur the wallyworld gift card. She said mommy should buy some coffee and creamer and some groceries with it. Mommy says we can get us a little something too. I’s can’t wait to go shopping.


Zebby! You’re a boy! You’re not supposed to like shopping!


Zebby lays woth paws covering his faceWake me up if mommy decides to go shopping.



          Who says? I’s can’t like shopping if I’s want too. Besides, it’s means more lap time with mommy. I’s like anything that gets me more mommy time.


Me too Zebby, me too.


          Anyways, I’s gonna go link us up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies.


Raena sits pretty

The following post will be written in human English for reader and translator ease. Our Service Cat posts aren’t intended to be an all inclusive Training Manual but rather Tips, Tricks and Techniques used/developed by mommy A thru her many years of animal training, cats in purr-ticular. And to offer insight into your questions about Everything Feline. Always remember, successful Training is all about Repetition and Rewards.

Last week we wrote about Vitamin D and the importance of a balanced nutritional feline diet. We discussed Feline Nutrition here, but we’ve not discussed in detail all of the ingredients, supplements and additives in your cat’s food. So, we were wondering how many of you would be interested in learning about these ingredients? Just because it’s in your cat’s food, doesn’t necessarily mean it should be. And, with all the conflicting opinions out there, choosing kitty’s food can get confusing. Let us know in the comments if you’d like to learn more about pet food ingredients, including trends and industry buzz words.

Okay already, Me likes you Raena.




Getting Along:


     We’ve been asked a couple of questions that don’t really require a whole post to answer. So, we thought we’d cover those today. We’re often asked if Raena and me got along right away. Mommy says it would be great and for sure make her life a lot easier if we had hit it off from the get go. But the truth is a big fat No. And, sis Lexi and me weren’t immediate besties either. However, we are proof that you can have a multi cat household where each kitty can feel safe and confident in their shared home. We don’t have extra rooms with doors that can closed off to allow for the traditional method of introducing new kitties, so mommy’s technique only allows for a couple of days for kitties to protest and lodge their complaints about the new comer. After which, she fully expects and will accept nothing less than kitties happily cohabiting in peace.

     Me still remembers the splat sis Lexi handed down the first time she saw me and how she ran off down the hall screaming. That was a long time ago. We became the best of friends and sisfurs. Me couldn’t have asked for a better role model or more loving big sissy. Of course, me had to pass along me’s own brand of displeasure when Raena joined our home. And we still have the occasional disagreement, but for the most part, we get along. More importantly, we work well together and are secure in our place in our home. If you’re adding a new kitty to your home, you can read our Tips for introducing them to your resident kitty(s) here



Paws up Dezi




Are Cats Ambidextrous:


     Another interesting question we were asked is: Do cats favor one paw over the other? In other words, are cats right or left pawed? Is that even a thing? Believe it or not, cats do favor one paw over the other. Cats can also be ambidextrous, meaning they use both right and left paws interchangeably. Like humans, the majority of kitties and doggies are right pawed/handed.

Remember Me Thursday:


     Right pawed, left pawed or ambidextrous, all kitties are wonderful. And all kitties deserve the chance to be loved and have a happy life. We encourage anyone looking to add a kitty to your family, to check out the local shelters and rescues in your area. Old or young, disabled or not, there’s sure to be a kitty waiting for you. We would like to remind you to do some research before adopting. Altho’ you may not know everything about the kitties at the shelter, there are things you can assume by knowing a little about breed traits. And please, don’t adopt a special needs kitty if you can’t afford to take care of them financially. While we don’t believe that money or the lack of it should prevent anyone from sharing their lives with a furry purrer, we do believe that one should be realistic. Special needs kitties can cost thousands upon thousands of dollars in medical bills. For someone like mommy, that would be impossible to do. Unexpected health care costs are something no one can predict, so we just say use some common sense.
