My Weekend

what a wonderful weekend I had.  My mommy gave me a whole body massage. Well, it wasn't hours and hours, but almost one! Almost every inch of my body. Even my toesies! And my ears and my tail!
I was so relaxed afterwards I just fell asleep. Heatwave?  What heatwave???
I recommend my Mommy!

Saturday Stuff

We are in a heat wave the weatherbeans on tv say. Well, we got a new a/c coolie thingie last summer, and we are comfy. Still gotta keep drinking water and keeping cool. And remembering our less fortunate friends. Please be kind.
Mommy has done a marathon watching thing with North Woods Law. 6 seasons. Took over a week. We love the woods and the animals, and really learned to appreciate those Fish and Game Wardens.  They are really dedicated. Mommy particularly likes a Sergeant Glen Lucas in New Hampshire. He, like other wardens, not only takes care of wild things but also goes on searches for lost people.
This weekend is a part of the 4th of July celebration. We heard a couple fireworks go off last night. But they don't bother me much. Hope you all find comfort if the noise bothers you.
Mommy is spending the next couple of weeks with lots of medical stuff. Sigh. Tests and ppointments and stuff keep her running okay. Well. not running. Wheeling?
love y'all.

We are ALIVE

Somebodies remember me!  We've been gone along time!!
We haven't caught up with everyone yet, but we'll try. We're really SORRY.
Mommy and I have been real sick for a while. Both of us.  Mommy said I was sick because I was upset that she was sick.
Well, anyway, we're both on the mend.
Then the 'puter DIED. We lost everything!!!!!
We went to the library a lot, but that was mostly to pay bills and get books for Mommy's Kindle.
So now we're on this silly laptop and here we are.
Apartment stuff has been really bad. No we haven't found any thing.
Our insurants peoples messed us up big time so we no longer have meals delivered. And Mommy is hurting for foodies. And our credit rating has been ruined. Not good when you are home hunting. But, hey, we're applying once again for a lectric wheelchair!
So there you have it.
Somebody pleeeeeeeze send a pizza!!

November 6, 2018


I gave Mommy a present Monday. A special one. I ate out of her hand. Not just a piece of something with a couple of her fingers (it took me years to do that) but foodies in HER WHOLE CUPPED HAND.
Sweet. Well, it was a big deal for us.
So I am sharing it.
Happy Tuxie Tuesday.
Don't forget, Americans, vote today!

Here We Go Again

We're still here! Things have been topsy-turvy my Mommy says. Well, actually I cleaned that up a bit for the little kittens out there.
Our housekeeper (we don't pay for her directly) threw our important stuff in the bins outside. We mean she threw Mommy's thing she wore around her neck to keep her keys and ID's and Mobility cards and her debit card all together into the trash.  Mommy gave her her thing so she could throw a broken fan out. Not everything!!!
Mommy called her bank and her transit stuff in and got a temp card to get in the building here and they made her new keys for the front door and the mail box and apartment key.  Her mail had been stopped so she called them and explained about the key.  The next day she got her mail. 
The company that the housekeeper hired is paying for the cost of all her key stuff (management charges a lot to replace everything) and they gave her a call Wednesday because the check they sent to us was returned undeliverable. She called her bank and advised them to resend their card. She left a message with another company. She called her local post office to complain and they told her to call back today, early. She asked to speak to the Supervisor.  That's who she was talking to. So she spend 45 minutes on hold with Washington at the main post office there and filed a complaint.
She has still no metro card, no debit card, no permanent key card for the front door, and no check. She can't go anywhere, pay any bills (we're now late.)
Mommy is once again very upset.
Our homemaker is very sorry, and her company was kind enough to send a check for the charges (and they are going to resend it!).
Our bank is sending another card. The local banks have a way to issue right away, but we now have no way to get there because of the Metro card problem.
Oh, and I still have just about enough foodies and stuff. But the low litter is making me worry a little.
And oh, yes, we can't even get our email because it is linked in to our  "computer doctor" account.
It never ends here, does it.  Mommy did fill out three new apps for somewhere else to live.
She wonders how she is going to get her favorite dish soap because she has no way of ordering it to be delivered or getting to Target to  buy it in person. And I don't like coffee cups, so I can't help. Slurp Coffee, blaaaaaaaaaagh! Broccoli blaaaaaaaaaah!
Pray for our luck to change. This is ridiculous. Send pizza, but not through the mail!
love you all,
Quinnie Makayla

Pirates Ahoy

I don't have a pirate dress, and I don't speak Pirate, but here's my pirate pictures for today's special day:

We're doing okay here.
Last Sunday early in the morning someone pounded on our front door and woke us up.  But Mommy wasn't really too awake and transferring from our bed to the wheelchair was a scary idea for her  (and I was sure it was for her, too).  So they went away, whoever they were and we were very grateful Mommy remembered to lock the door! We just snuggled back together and we went back to sleep.
Monday Mommy had her monthly visit  to change her catheter but had forgotten to arrange a ride through her insurants so she called our old friends the MetroMobility bus.  When she was done with her ppointment they were a half hour late picking  her up (in a really bad rainstorm, so that was sort of a good excuse, plus traffic and all the construction). It also took over an hour and a half to get home (we live about a mile from the clinic she went to). She said they drove all over south Minneapolis (we live in Nordeast Mpls), so she got to see a lot of stuff she used to live close to. A new Target, a restaurant where her old bank used to be, lots of new condos, a new Walgreens, one of her old grocery stores totally remodeled, that sort of was entertaining for her on the way home. But there were three people still on the bus when she was let off who still had to go to the northern suburbs. She felt sad for them.
But I missed her. And she filled my water and foodies and went directly to bed she was so tired out. We got to snuggle.
Anyway, this evening she's ordering from a more expensive store. But they had what they call BOGO sales, buy one and get one free. So she got lots of stuff half off.  It wasn't a big order. Just some of the sale stuff. But she did mention she got two sausage pizzas, and we don't have pizza that often. Yummmmm.
We also got to talk to Chewy today. We had to delay our next delivery cause we are really stocked up right now. Mommy told them Quinnie thanks them.  I was sitting right there when Mommy called!
So Happy Talk like a Pirate Day!
love ya,
Quinnie Makayla
(sort of a Pirate lady, so woofies are not really walking the plank here)

Saturday Stuff

Mommy was being silly again.
We had groceries delivered today and she had hit the shampoo key on the puter 5 times when she placed her order! She called them, laughed at herself, and they came back today to pick up the 4 she didn't need.  Now if she gets heavy fingered and orders two or three cans of the same soup, well, we'll eventually eat them.  But 5 bottles of shampoo? That would take a couple of years and too much storage space (we're trying to move, ya know)!
It is yucky dark out today, probly going to rain. So Mommy is staying at home. She has a couple of things to do, cause guess what? They are doing another bug inspection Tuesday. She doesn't know whether to be insulted, pissed off or laugh at their waste of housing money. We don't HAVE any bugs!
Mommy got shots in both her knees at the doctor's office yesterday.  It's sposed to take up to a month to  work (Arthur-itis, ya know) but this stuff, if it works, is good for 6 months and won't bother her diabetes. She says it is NOT courtazone.
She couldn't think of a reason for me to meow and meow when the delivery people left.  Then she checked my water, which was totally blocked off by the waste basket and the recycling bin. Important stuff! It's all fixed now. I got some "good girl" pets, too.
We are such blessed kitties, aren't we?
Adopt a shelter pet or a rescue animal!!!!
love ya,
Quinnie and her Mommy Carol
And stay safe and happy those of you who have Labor day weekend.
5 bottles of shampoo. Tee hee. Mommy and I are still laughing.

Terrible Tuxie Tuesday

Mommy and I have been going through what she's been calling "hell". She has had lots of problems with her folio bag breaking and even after a trip to the ER she broke the one they gave her. She put in an order for more bags and the first box had something called CPAP masks. She said but she never has had a CPAP machine  in her life.  Then they speedy delivered the catheters (for inside the body) but she didn't need them. Finally she cried  on the phone and one of the  ladies in the office at the supply place dropped the right stuff off when she got  off work.  It only took 4 days and lots of plastic bags that broke all  over the place (she used my litter bags) and we were foot deep (for me anyway) in water. Pee water. Now the floor has to be specially washed and even though we have a housekeeper now Mommy has to do it.
On top  of everything else, Tuesday we were also over my head in garbage (they were cleaning the chutes and we couldn't  dump garbage down them) and we had a major fire drill.
If we had an upstairs that Mommy could climb up the stairs to, this would have been the end of our day! But we snuggled anyway.
love ya all,
Quinnie and Mommy Carol
(definitely send pizza!)
