Cha-cha-cha-changes

Oh, my!
Our weather went from stiffly hot to actually chilly! This morning we were in the 50's and I actually snuggled with Mommy! She had left the fan on overnight and a bunch of windows open and there was no way I would go into the living room or kitchen! Not even for breakies!
Well the fan got turned down and I was at that breakie and Mommy actually made a cup of coffee. Something Mommy hasn't been doing lately in the heat, making that hot cup of coffee!
It would have been a nice day for her to go downtown cause she has some errands to run, but she decided to do them next week. So we get to cuddle a bit today. And I am thankful for today! Even if she wants to clean!!
What a nice change from all that heat and humidity. The windows are open, there is nice smelly stuff outside to sniff. Gotta be grateful! The heat is bound to come back!
Hope you all are having a snuggly day!
love ya,
QUINN

CAT DADS R COOL



We just wish we had one. Besides Mommy, that is.
Happy Father's Day!
You are lucky if your Daddy is all Daddy and not like me, with just a Mommy!
But we all are lucky to have someone love us, right? Mommy and/or Daddy!
Keep cool today, if it's going to be really really hot and muggy where you are (like here). Drink lots of water and put out some for the unlucky ones stuck outside!
And more humans need to NOT put babies of any kind in a hot car!!!!

Wordy Wednesday

Hi! It's really me!
We have survived a lot of heat and humidity these last several days, and storms last night were loud, but I have my mommy and she has me, so it wasn't too bad. My mommy loves storms, so she remains calm and that helps me remain calm.
No, our air conditioner is acting up and there is a loonnnnggg waiting list for maintenance. And we have to be patient. There are a lot of people in this building who really need a/c a lot more than Mommy and me. But we have a lovely tower fan in the living room that is helping tremendously. And mommy isn't doing too much baking, except limited to short times in the toaster oven! Or cooking when it is cooler. So it's not too bad so far. But that a/c will get fixed eventually, so no real worries.
Mommy's wheel chair: she has an appointment to be evaluated (finally!) in the middle of August! They certainly are busy if she has to wait that long. She says this time (!) she goes to her favorite place (the one next to the hospital with the sweet comfort service woofie she met not long ago. And a nice cafe place where she gets scrumptious (don't you love that word?) salads.
So that is what's up with the wheel chair. Now, the original doctor's visit was in late April. Who knows when and if she will get her chair! She's already fallen once this week.
Remember that internet problem?  They charged her 70 green papers for the tech to come! She called and they said they would give her credit, but you never know. Now her statement says she still owes over 92 green papers, and I bet they charge her a late fee next month so it will be impossible to have our cable internet. If anyone can put money in my  PayPal, thank you in advance. I told mommy she can have some of it.
I am spending a lot of time in the shower. Mommy thinks this is silly. But the floor is cool in there. She says all our floors are tile, so they all should be cool. I do come out and sit in my chair, though, and on the floor by Mommy and in my linen closet and on my bed and on the big bed (my mommy says it really is hers), and on the laundry and, and, and! So what is her problem??? Mommies!
Oh, some more good news: We are getting a new floor lamp.  Now we do have two, but one of them is kinda broken in the middle. It has a problem standing up straight, and that is kinda scary. Well, the new one is new to us, anyway. And we didn't have to pay any green papers for it. It doesn't match the one we are keeping (that one was free, too) but they aren't standing next to each other, and besides my Mommy says matching stuff can be boring, and lots of real decorators approve of not matching stuff.
Long enough Wordy Wednesday post?
Whew.
Love ya,
QUINN

Sunday Stuff

This is the book we read: 
Cutie isn't he?
Mommy has to go in to the hospital Tuesday. NO! She's NOT staying! This trip is for her semi-annual heart checkup. That's where her heart doctor's office is. Absolutely no big deal (except I think she goes out for lunch afterwards and never brings anything home for me).
Mommy didn't let me see it, but one of our neighbors came in and organized our pantry (Mommy has fallen getting stuff out of it many times before). A very beautiful job, Mommy says, but you still can't go in there, Quinnie Makayla!
Is this fair? Pantries are FUN!
Have a beautiful week.
love ya,
QUINN

Friday Wrap Up

Hi, all. No, I haven't forgotten you! Mommy just hasn't been letting me on line to blog. Today it is cloudy and rainy and yucky and she's been napping (good Mommy) and watching movies (today, bad Mommy--because I haven't been blogging).

Wheelchair update: nothing so far.
Green paper update: Ow.
Mommy update: she's been pretty good. Really wants that chair, cause she made it around the whole WallyWorld on lots of pain last weekend. Think perimeter, not whole store. But she tried. Only sat once, I heard, and didn't fall. She has to go to WallyWorld for her insulins once a month. And of course, they doubled in price again.
Green paper update again: OWWWWW.
Memorial Weekend: other than WallyWorld, not much happening. She was reading a library book about a woofie who solves crime. Well, actually it was a lady chef (for animals) who solves crimes. Not a bad book. And it did have some kitties in it, too. Redeeming factor. Even though the Pampered Pets didn't solve anything they did get some awesome homemade food. "Lights, Action, Murder" and a cute little woofie in a chef's hat on the cover. We do like little woofies!
I did get my Chewy box. More foodies and more litter. Yea!
And Mommy won a book that she is going to read to me. Double yea!
Love ya,
QUINN

About my Mommy (again, sorry)

Mommy had a very bad day yesterday. That was until she finally got home (another doctor). It was wanting to rain, but she missed all of the raindrops. No she didn't necessarily feel bad.  It was just one of those days when mommies say they would have rather stayed in bed. Now, I think mommies should stay in bed when ever they want to, but she means everything just went wrong all day.
That meant this morning spending a lot of time on the phone concerning her request for a wheel chair. And getting madder and madder and more upset until she wanted to just give up and forget the whole thing. It has been three weeks and she is no closer to getting it than day one. She shuffles around here so she doesn't fall, holds on to walls and doorways and other stuff and uses her cane, and makes sure I'm not in her way when she walks. She still is trying.  But it is certainly hard to hear that she fell getting into her bank building, or in her own health store at her clinic even using her walker. She doesn't want to go anywhere for fear of falling again.  She doesn't want to break something when she falls (I mean a bone). Why can't people understand this and make the process of getting a wheel chair as simple as they can? And the language as simple as they can. And understand that older people are old and not entirely stupid, just out of their element.
I feel so sorry for her. She gets so upset. She is so unhappy. She was trying everything she could think of (changing meds, talking to her doctors, being overly cautious) and still she is falling.  A wheelchair seemed like the correct answer. It still does. But it sounds like no one else thinks so.
I am a little upset, too. My purring doesn't seem to be helping a lot right now.
So do us a favor. Would a clowder of you purr a little louder? Or bark? Or what ever will maybe help us a little?
my Mommy's little purr-er,
QUINN
