MeOWwwww RaenaBelle, did you see the snow yesfurday? Me thought we might not get any since it was stormin’ and rainin’. But it was so cold the raindrops turned to snow drops mid air.
Really sissy? The cold can make rain turn to snow?
What? Uh…sure it can Raena, didn’t you see it?
No, I’s was too busy snugglin’ with mommy. Is it still snowin’? Do ya’ think mommy will let us go out and play in it?
Nah, Fankfully the snow’s stopped fur now and the sun’s come out. Mr. Sun ain’t doin’ anythin’ to warm us up, but at least he’s makin’ the snow melt. The weather guessers had furcasted 8” of snow plus an inch of ice. Fankfully, they were wrong as usual. As fur playin’ in it, let me tell ya’, it’s not as fun as it might sound Raena. Me ‘members me’s furst time in the snow. A long time ago, me thought me just had to go out and see it. So, mommy wheeled us outside and me accidentally pushed the joystick on the wheelchair furward and we fell off the sidewalk and right into that cold white stuffs. Me couldn’t get in the house fast enuff. Me’s sis Lexi laffed at me furever ‘bout that.
See the bottom of that box behind me? Mommy says
it’s our new scratcher lounger.
Really sissy? You made mommy fall into the snow?
Not on purr-puss Raena, it was an accident. Trust me, that was the last thing me wanted to do. (Dezi goes back to eating her breakfast to distract her from the memory of falling in the snow)
What did it feel like sissy? Was it soft?
Can’t you see me’s eatin’? (Dezi thinks back to that day when she was just a small kitten who ended up in the snow with mommy A and the wheelchair falling on top of her) To be honest Raena, me doesn’t ‘member that much ‘bout it. Me just ‘members it was cold and me wanted to go back inside where it was toasty warm and safe. Me feels so bad fur the kitties that have to live out in all that cold.
I’s do too sissy. I’s so wish every kitty could have a happy and luvvin’ furever like we do. It’s a new year and I’s gonna purray that more kitties find homes than ever befur. (Raena jumps up on the back of mommy A’s chair and begins to take a mid morning bath)
That’s a good idea Raena. Me will join ya’. Meowin’ of the new year, we’re gonna be pickin’ up where we left off with our Service Cat Furiday posty’s startin’ February 1st. So, we’d like to remind ya’ to send us your questions and article suggestions. You can do so via our Contact us page or sendin’ us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be delvin’ deeper into Nutrition and the foods we kitties do/should eat, as well as takin’ a look at the food/feed available on the market. We hope you’ll join us.
I’s fur sure can’t wait sissy. I’s been doin’ lots of research to get ready. I’s even heard mommy sayin’ we were gonna be tastin’ some new foodables so we can meow the truth. I’s gonna go link us up with Comedy Plus fur Feline Furidays. Will you play with me afterwards?
Meowllo and happy funday Munday to you all. Weez been a purrawmissin’ to tell ya’ ‘bout da snow dumpin’ incident and so guess what? Today’s da day. Weez not hav any actual fotos of da incident as we didn’t even hav a digital camewa back then. And to be honest, when fings like this happens, gwabbin’ a camewa is kinda da last fing on mommys mind. Member it’s just da thwee of us, and only one of us thwee has fumms. So anyways, me needs to set it up a bit fur ya’.
Da year wuz 2010, so me wuz still weally yung. Mommy had just had surgewy a kupple weeks afur and wuz wecovewin’ weally well. And it wuz winter, and very cold. And when we woke up one meownin’ there wuz a blanket of white stuffs all over da gwound. Me had never seen anyfin’ like it. Me wuz a little tyke da year afur and so me dusn’t know ifin any of this happened then or not. Anyways, when mommy opened da door dat meownin’ and me hopped up on meez perch to look outside me wuz amazed. Me kep lookin’ outside and then back at mommy and mewin’. When mommy finally told me it wuz snow. Well me didn’t hav a clue what this snow wuz, but it sure looked purretty. Sis Lexi kep tellin’ me it wuz pawfully cold out there but me didn’t care. Me weally wanted to go out in it. Me ate a little bit and then just kep runnin’ to da door and then back to mommy.
Mommy finally seemed to get da message and told me dat it wuz way to cold fur meez naked paws to be owt walkin’ wound so ifin me wanted to go it wuz gunna hav to be on mommy’s lap. So she told me to bwing da chair over to her, and me kinda ignored her. Well me finally got tired of dat and weally wanted to go out and see this snow. Me didn’t unnewstand why Lexi didn’t wanna go. Anyways, me bwought da chair to mommy and hers stawted to get weady. She put meez hawness on and then meez leash. Mommy picked me up and we boff sat in da chair. Mommy dwove us over to da door and weached up to unlock it and me put meez mouff on da joystick.
Mommy barely got da door open when meez pushed da joystick furward, and out da door we went. And wight off da porch and into da snow. Da chair tipped furward and me dug meez little claws wight into mommys sweat pants. Me wuz hangin’ on fur dear life. Da foot rest of da chair had been buwied under da snow so mommy’s nerve damaged alweady numb feets wuz in da smow pushin’ and twyin’ to keep da chair fwum tippin’ us stwaight into da snow. By this time Lexi wuz over at da door standin’ on hers back paws wiff hers fwunt paws restin’ gently on da still open door. She wusn’t comin’ out to join us dat’s fur sure. Hmmmmm meez wunnerwin’ ifin maybe she knows sumfin’ me shulda knowed. MOL Mommys feets keep sinkin’ deeper and deeper into da snow and da chair be leanin’ mowe and mowe and meez claws awe stawtein’ to rip mommy’s sweats. And nopawdy’s comin’ to help us.
Everytime mommy’s feet slip into the snow, Dezi’s claws dig in a little bit deeper until finally they hit mommys skin. Mommy hollered and sed, “Dezi, honey, I’ve got you. Please you’ve gotta retract you’re claws. You’re hurtin’ me.” Dezi’s eyes had gone fwum saucer size to full blown dinner plate size. Not ow plates, a mommy’s size plate. When all of a sudden a bird flew past us outta nowhere. It stawtled mommy and skeered me and sis Lexi hoo wuz still at da door watchin’. When sissyfur got skeered she dwopped to da floor and accidentally pushed against da door. Da door opened and outta those plate size eyes meez saw da warmff of da house and it wuz callin’ meez name. Me pushed off mommy’s lap and leapt toward da door and da inside. But afur me kuld get inside, da door slammed shut.
And there me wuz standin’ on da cold snowy gwound. Yous wulda fawt it wuz hot coals da way me danced wound. And everytime meez paws hit da gwound they wuld sink a little bit further down. Meez gunna be buried unner da snow me fawt. Well wiffout me in hers lap diggin’ meez claws into hers legs, mommy wuz able to wight da chair. Mommy got da chair back up on da snow covered sidewalk and Just then she saw me buried in snow up to meez chin. Me had sank so low me kuldn’t even jump anymore, and all mommy kuld do wuz laff. Mommy reached down and picked me up and back into da house we came. Me jumped down so fast yous head wulda spun. Me wuz shivewin’ so mommy took me to da back and got da blow dwyer to dwy me off and warm me up wiff. Me wuz finally gettin’ warm. Now mommy had to take off hers soakin’ wet socks and torn up sweat pants. A foo hours later we wuz all finally warmed up But everytime mommy came toward me dat day me wuld run and hide cuz me musta fawt dat she wuz gunna take me back outside. MOL Soz dat’s how meez accidentally caused mommy and me to go playin’ in da snow. Meez gotta tell ya’ me never wants to do dat again. Well hope yous enjoyed ow snowin’ funday Monday.
