Memorial Weekend

Happy Caturday! This is sort of a picture of my Mommy today. Before her coffee. MOL
It is sposed to be kinda rainy and grey most of this weekend, so that means less sunpuddles and more naps.
I do hope your Memorial Day weekend is nicer.
Now this weekend Mommy says we are to remember and honor all the nice military people present and past that have defended freedom. I think this should be ALL military people, not just United States military. Freedom is important for everyone all over the world.
Especially remember those who gave their lives for freedom. This is not to say ignore the present military by any means. But as you say a little prayer for those who are military today, please remember all the families who sent their dear ones off and made the biggest sacrifice. Their dear ones fought for your freedom. And never made it home again.
Remember especially this weekend:
Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. Freedom! It is hard earned, but oh so sacred.

Today is...

Happy Tuxie Tuesday!!! 
I did something special for Mommy today. Okay, I do nice things for my Mommy a lot, but she said this was very special. I gave her  lots of real biscuits (something I don't really do) and laid down on her for "Mommy and Me" time. And I really haven't stopped purring all morning. Right now I am sitting on the chair which is next to the puter so I can dictate my entry for today. And get occasional rubbies, of course.  It is so sunny out today and I hope it lasts.
Still purring!!
Mommy has to go to the clinic tomorrow, so I will miss her a lot. But she has regular blood stealing stuff to do (Mommy calls it "labs") and she sees her diabetic nurse regularly. She is going to disappear frequently today to do laundry. And she said be prepared for her to leave a few times the rest of the week. She has some errands to run.
Her knee has been bugging her this week, so the errands need to be spread out a bit. I understand.
Mommy said if there is a pill for stopping purring it will not be in this home!
Now the sun has gone behind some clouds so I need to do some serious talking to it!
Love ya all,
Have a gorgeous day,
purring QUINN

Caturday is HERE!

We are back on a semi-regular schedule, I guess. Mommy thought this picture was cute. No, we don't have any spyware for real, but Mommy thinks this kind of spyware is kinda cute and nobody could ever not want this kind!
Caturday is starting out very sunny and bright, and it is now in the upper 50's this morning. I have now been furminated and foodied, although I distracted somebody from her coffee and foodies. *snicker* I may have to let her have those soon, or she will.... I don't know, but I don't want to find out!
We have been gone so long I don't think we have many readers following us anymore. I really don't blame them. There are lots of interesting blogs to read these days. But we have been around for years and don't intend to stop blogging now. Just maybe not every day. We'll try, though.
Hope you all have a beautiful day today, and don't forget your Mommies AND daddies this weekend. That means try not to trash the house for once!






love ya,
QUINN

A Special Thankful Thursday!

We've missed so much in the blogosphere! We have posted comments to a few of you, but that doesn't mean we didn't  think of all of you and wish you well. And pray for you all, four footed and two footed.
Today we found out that our dear friend Nerissa is in heaven. Not fair at all. We will miss him a lot! I hope he gets to run and play and nip out with others that are there. MOUSES! Hope my sister brandi had a nice greeting for him (she always liked him almost as much as Hendrix).
Mommy has been dealing with some serious health problems and mounting medical bills, plus of course, dealing with missing her brother. This may sound silly, but could you all watch NCIS just one time (even if you're not a fan) in his honor? He loved that show. Actually, so does Mommy. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. It won't cost you anything but an hour of your time!
We don't want to burden you with our problems and that's why we have been absent here. Anyone want to start an auction for us? MOUSES! as Nissy would say. It would be so kind!
Now, since it is Thursday, and Thankful Thursday at that, I am going to turn this over to Mommy cause I am too humble to tell you this:

A TRUE STORY
We had an odor problem in our apartment for a couple days this week. I took out all the garbage, made sure the litter box wasn't offending (it wasn't. It's like two feet from the head of my bed! I would definitely know!). Sniffed all over for this mildly irritating smell. Then, two nights ago my sweet Quinnie poked and prodded me around 4 in the morning.  The odor was horrible. I finally figured out I should check the stove. Yes, it was the gas leaking, getting stronger and stronger. I must have bumped one of the dials God knows when (still getting used to my walker) and never noticed and it didn't light, just spewed gas. I opened a couple of windows and burrowed down with a blanket for the rest of the night. It was cold out that night! I don't know what would have happened to us both if Quinn hadn't poked and prodded and pawed me over and over till I woke up. I believe that Quinnie is my own personal hero! Yes, she is a little diva, and loves to be petted and scritchied at the most inappropriate times and refuses to eat from my hands, but she got a lot of extra extra pets and scritchies and kisses all that day. I am so thankful for my little hero, Quinnie! Okay, Quinnie Makayla, back to you.

Back to me, Quinn!
I don't think I am so special. I just took care of us, as usual. MOUSES! A little beyond nursie, that's for sure! But what any good kitty would do!
love ya all,
Quinn and Mommy Carol
and lots of MOUSES in Nissy's MOUSES honor. MOUSES!

Good Friday to You!


Well, pressing F11 sort of did help! Yea! You have to move the curser up to see the "minimizer. maximizer and close" otherwise they aren't there at all. And neither is the entire bar up there NOW.  But that is better than seeing that black bar all the time. Thank you for the suggestion! Mommy can sort of deal with that! Those F buttons have always been mysterious to us! Wonder if there is a list of what they do somewhere!
It has been a little cooler again, so I think another "shot" at 87 degrees Fahrenheit is some ways off again. But it was nice.  Minnesotans get kinda goofy at the end of winter when it is the slightest warmer, anyway. 50 is cause for celebration! OMC 40 is, too, for that matter! And 87 (the weatherman said 84 I think, but our thermometer on the puter said 87!) is *happy dance* times elebenty eleben! Last year at this time we had SNOW!
Thank you once again for the help!
Mommy likes our little warm fuzzies kitty, so she caught it off of one of our blog entries and saved it to this computer. It seemed like a nice thought to thank everyone and efurryone for being there for us. Of course, we don't send the Evil ones, so no worries! Evil ones belong to appropriate mean and cruel humans I think. And bad computers! But black kitties are sweet....
Love ya,
QUINN

News and more computer problems!


News: Mommy is getting her walker next Monday! Yea! *happy dance* Finally!
We just found out. Thank you for your prayers!
We have been experiencing Major Problems with Firefox today. We had to reload it (?) finally, and all our bookmarks are there. But we had to once again make our home page our home page (Comcast). And for some weird reason the box thing on the top right of the screen is Black.  That's the one that you can make the screen bigger or smaller, you can pull it down to the strip at the bottom of the computer screen (see how untechnified we are!) so you can see the desktop or check through stuff of your own before you continue on  line. And then there is the missing X that closes the internet. Where do we go for help? Our internet provider Comcast, or Firefox or some other great genius place on the internet? Inquiring Mommy wants to know. I want to know so she stops freaking out over it. We can work around that, but I think that's silly, and so does Mommy. Anyone have suggestions on where to go for some on-line help? Anyone even heard of this problem before??? We really don't want to be that kind of special. Really.
In other news, we are thankful for all of you (even if you don't have a solution to our problem), and the support of our friends through Mommy's hard time loosing her brother. You all are truly so kind! And I am definitely thankful that it was 87 degrees F. yesterday! Imagine. In April. In Minnesnowta! Mommy actually dragged out another fan yesterday! Yes, we have the A/C thingy, but in April??? Unheard of in Minnesnowta! Fans it is!
It is 67 today. Go figure! At least there were decent sunbeams this morning!
Well, we haven't even gotten around to reading blogs today. We are so behind in a lot of things on here! But we ARE thankful we now can even begin to catch up!
Hope you all have a blest day (as our friend Dezi says) today, and the weather where you are is sunshine-y at least!
Love ya

Excitement!

We are moving, and we are adopting more brothers and sisters for ME. I'm going to get a bunch of cat towers, too. The place comes furnished, of course, and there is a special cook and a maid just for me, and mommy gets help, too. She no longer has to worry about her medicines! And she has lots of closets, big closets. The potty room for her has a jacuzzi walk in tub and a huge shower with zillions of  shower heads! She can have them! We have an elevator!  I of course, have my own potty room and several litter boxes scattered throughout our 15 room mansion. Lots of room for THE for all of us (Thundering Herd of Elephants) any time of the day or night. Oh, what fun we are going to have! Several bird TV chanels! And I get to share with my new sisters! And brothers! And we get two little dog siblings, too! I love woofies! And a fish tank (oh, boy, oh, boy!) The movers are coming next week.

April fool's day!

Now back to reality.You didn't really fall for all that, did you? As if we could ever be that lucky!  Mommy heard last night that it was going to be warm today (in the 70's Fahrenheit) so she left one of the windows open. She checked two local weather casters, even. To make sure that wasn't a joke. Of course, that was sort of nature's joke, cause we woke up a little chilly today! But Mommy is still keeping the window open as long as possible. It's supposed to be a bit windy today, and rain :(  is coming. But it IS to be warmer today. For real!And this morning there are sun puddles! And I really do love woofies, by the way.
Hope you all have an interesting April Fool's Day, too.
Now about those Oreo cookies stuffed with toothpaste....
Love ya,
QUINN

Here We Are!

We want to thank everyone and efurryone for your kind thoughts on Mommy's loss. The brother that passed was the sibling she was most close to and shared a lot of interests with. She was not able to attend any funeral or memorial because of no green papers and he lived in another state. She has been very sad, but has spent part of our time away from you all remembering all the good things about having such a good brother.
The other thing she has been spending time with is insurants again. Her new medicine insurants. They have given her several quotes on her insulin that were pretty outrageous. They seemed to change with each person she talked to! So as of tomorrow she has a new new medicine insurants which is most reasonable. We hope. In the mean time, she has ordered about a week's supply of insulin through her old plan (because a month's worth was so expensive). She was getting very anxious about it. Her insulin was delivered yesterday, and she really needed it this morning!
Other green paper stuff: she has been trying to purchase a new walker because she has been getting a little more unstable, and a helpful place has promised to help her pay for one, but she has been waiting almost a month for them, and she's pretty upset about that. Waiting is not something she does well. It's a brand new walker and medicare is helping pay for it, too. Just a little bit more and it will be paid for. Can anyone help?
Mommy has several medical-related stuff she needs that she can't afford. One is her share of her last hospital stay. Others involve new glasses, dental work, etc. Would a gofundme page help? Insurants doesn't pay for some stuff for her. Who actually contributes to a gofundme? If she did have one, and she got the green papers she needed, anything left over would be put in a special place for me if I get sick and we would give anything left to our favorite place, Feline Rescue of St. Paul. That's where I found Mommy, ya know. I think that I should share my PayPal account but it won't cover Mommy's stuff.. So what shall we do? I'm sure in the future there will be a wheelchair, too. Those are lots and lots of green papers!
This week the building has given every partment a recycling bin, and they are going to "pick up" twice a week. Pretty cool.  Mommy likes recycling cause it's good for the earth. I thought it was a little noisy when they "picked up" on Monday.
Time out, as they say, for something important for me:
I'm making Mommy stop writing this for me and give me a nice Furminator and massage time!
*******ooooo*******purrrrrrrrrrrr*******
ZZZZZZZZZwhat? Oh, of course.
I'm back!
We have not been reading blogs for the last week or so, and we have piles of catching up to do. We haven't forgotten you, and we hope you haven't forgotten us! We have piles and oodles of blogs to catch up on.
But never forget we continue to purray and pray, send good thoughts, and think of you all.
Happy Tuxie Tuesday!(of course!!)
Love ya,
(and we mean that sincerely! And not just the tuxies! And we don't ever forget the woofies either!))
QUINN
and Mommy Carol
Now Mommy, back to the massage!
