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!)

Once again

Well, we have been gone awhile.
Once again Mommy was in the hospital. This time it was because she choked really bad and had fluid and food  in her lungs and there was some mention of problems with her heart.  After a several day stay she is home. I told her off for at least  a day.  Don't do that again, Mom.  The paramedics  were nice  and made sure I had foodies and water, but they took you away! Take better care of yourself!
Yes, she did yell at me finally to shut  up, but she also told  me she loved me and missed me and was sorry I was scared. So was she.
Now things are going okay again. We had Laura, our new cleaner in on Thursday. She has yet to clean the bathroom, and Mommy had to redo some of the stuff she did in the cupboards (she had left pots and pans sitting on the counter and plastic stuff in the cupboards Mommy found and Mommy was a little mad).
Anyway, next week Laura won't be here as we have not only another inspection but a doctor's appointment for her eyes again, and another day another doctor's appointment.
So today Mommy will be gone this afternoon, but she will be going to see a possible place for us to move into some time.
We are also in a new heat wave, But our a/c coolie thingy is working very well and we are comfy.
So that is the update for now.
Hope you had a good World Cat Day. Mommy forgot.
But I always get kissies….
Love ya,
and yes, we are now okay, so don't worry,
prayers accepted as  usual,
Quinnie and Mommy Carol
Send a pizza????

Thursday Thankfuls

How about more good news than bad????
Mommy got her totes back, and Voila (that's French, don't cha know) the first thing that came out was my bed pillow!!!! Waiting to come out is Mommy's bed pillow (no more head on the crunched up flannel robe for her).
She hasn't opened anything else yet, cause we are waiting on the wheelchair guy to come back. Yes, Mommy's new wheelchair!!
He has to do some stuff with the footies on the chair.
Mommy got her foodie delivery from Mom's Meals. That's lunch taken care of for the next couple of weeks.  This is paid for by her new insurants. And I get to lick the remainder when she is finished eating (if there are no onions or stuff I can't have). According to Mommy she really loves these meals. She gets to make her own choices of what to eat and they are very tasty.
The rest of her groceries she has to order herself and pay for.  That takes care of Friday night. She has an order coming.
She is still waiting for her metromobility new card.  That's the bad news.
She needs it badly. Rides to medical appointments are now paid for by the new insurants, but we still need the metromobility card for Mommy to go other places. Like the library or grocery store  or Target or Walmart or museums and stuff. And it is important for her to get out and do stuff. And to see new places to maybe move to.
We don't have a housekeeper yet.  Maybe next week.
Tuesday when she was at another doctor's appointment was what the weathernuts here call a perfect 10 weather day, so that made her happy to be out.
Maggie couldn't come this week because her Mommy had to take her training. She is an agility pro, and needs to keep up her agility work.
She is such a cutie, and thinks she's another cat at her house, so she gets along great with us felines even though she's a woofie. She even loves our feather wands! Word with sister brandi is she loves Temptations, too. See? She really does think she's another cat at her house.
More of you can come over any time, really. This week has been fun,  and fun is a good thing to have. Salmon is still plentiful here (Beyond® crunchies,  of course).
Love ya,
Quinnie

Checking in again

As busy as this week has been (notice we haven't blogged or even checked in on other blogs yet) next week is going to be even busier for Mommy. She has doctors to see on Monday and Tuesday, a place to visit to see if we would want to live there, errands to run, foodies for Mommy to order.... Wait. NO! Mommy has been busy this week and she will be busy next week. Me???? I am a little spoiled kitty cat and I get to stay HOME.
Maybe, if anyone is free, you can come over and visit??
I'll break out the red dot machine and my tickle pickle and maybe some wands and a little catnip and my Beyond crunchies (salmon flavor, of course). There will be plenty of water, too. We even have some bottled water!
All you have to do is come.  And if you want pizza, you have to bring it  yourselves! We don't have green papers for such things. *sigh*
Up to you. You are invited!
Nice woofies welcome. I'm gonna ask my woofie friend Maggie if she can come.
Love ya all,
Quinnie-poo (that's one of my Mommy's silly names for me. You may call me Quinn, Quinnie, or Quinnie Makayla)
And yes, there are still a lot of bags to play on or under!
We still don't have our totes.

Sultry Saturday

Well. Mommy's eyes are not good again and she had to have a shot in her eye.  That's right, you read that right. In her eye.
The main tech for the bug department came in and said, yes, there are no bugs. But management has decided that they are still holding on to our totes until an apartment becomes available so that they can do another heat treat. On plastic boxes???  Are they nuts??? So in the meantime Mommy can't use her walker or wheelchair in the bedroom or bathroom because all her towels and blankets and clothes are in big plastic bags on the bedroom floor. It also prevents us from having a new housekeeper. And Mommy from having a bed pillow. And me from having my little bed.
Hssst!
Mommy left management a message on the office phone that if she had to go to the police just to get her unlawfully held stuff back she will.  Of course, that really wouldn't do anything, but she felt better saying that. She can imagine the nice police persons having a good laugh over that "threat".
In the meantime, it is extremely hot here but our new a/c thingy is keeping us comfy.
Hope all of you out there are keeping cool, and please think about our feral friends who need water, too.
Love ya,
Quinnie

Latest Stuff!

You won't believe what happened to Mommy!!!
No, no, no! Nothing bad!
When we got our grocery delivery there was this big box of fruit. Now Mommy had ordered some plums, and she got them. But she didn't order all this fruit! She, being the good Mommy that I love, called the store and told them about this mistake.  They thanked her for her honesty.  She said she just didn't want someone to miss part of their order.
They said to keep the box.
Wasn't that nice?   She got rewarded for being honest!
Now if someone had ordered a big box of pizzas or kitty foodies or something I would have been ecstatic.  But it was nice for Mommy, all the same.
Now you won't believe what happened to me!!!
No, no, no! Again nothing bad!
I got my Chewy box!!  That was super for me.  Even if it was my normal order and I knew what was in it, it was all mine!
Mommy has a couple of pointments next week and FINALLY they are coming back with the ransomed totes and stuff.  On next Friday.  Totally unacceptable but about Hhrrmph time! My little bed will be mine again!
Just so Mommy remembers on Monday to call in her meal order a day early because of the holiday coming up.  You know, that loud National Holiday with the boomers.
Did I tell you she gets lunches now during the week? From a nice place with good foodies for her that are really good tasting?  I can tell by the whiffies! Her new insurants pays for it. Oh, and they also pay for someone to come and do nice stuff for her feets. They have already been here once.
I,  of course, get my Furminator and tummy rubs and foodies and water and she spoils me with kissies, so it's nice she gets spoiled a little, too.
Now if we only had that new wheelie chair and found a nicer place to live and Mommie had some more green monies so she won't "overdraft" at her bank and can do some nice stuff. She already bought new oven mitts.
Did you think we went  on some vacation??? Just new oven  mitts!
When they come next Friday I think we get the go-ahead to finally get a new housekeeper so Mommie doesn't have to worry about that kind of stuff, cleaning and stuff. So all she will have to worry about is making my foodie bowl have foodies in it, my water bowl clean and full and my litter box is taken care of regularly and I get petted and cuddled and Furminated all the time. She just has to take care of ME!
Won't that be nice?
Love ya all!

Tuxie Tuesday Update

Our new a/c is quite the thing.  It has a remote!  It also has a temperature control and a special energy thing that turns it off when it is cool enough and comes on without touching it when it needs to turn on to maintain the cool. Now we have several remotes for stuff here and the pile is growing.
What will they think of next?
Maintenance here is holding some of our stuff, and they are going to retreat it sometime this week.  One of the items is MY LITTLE BED! So I have to use my kitty tree or my carrier or my big bed (Mommy calls  it hers--Hmmph) or the (my) office chair.  And we still have mounds of bags full of stuff. While Mommy hates this, and it makes it hard to get to the bathroom and bedroom for her it is fun for me!
Most of the kitchen stuff is put back (not all) and Mommy even found my old water dish! I like the one I have now (it's one of Mommy's ceramic bowls).
We  still don't have Mommy's new chair. And Mommy is running out of foodies. Don't panic.  She  gets her "ssi" monies in a couple days.
Yes, it is hot out, but the new a.c thingie works really well, so we are okay. And Mommy (so far)  doesn't have to go anywhere this week.  She is having groceries delivered when she gets her monies. Next week she has pointments and stuff. But this week it's just Mommy and Me!
The Trout Town gang has me thinking.  A mushroom pizza with lots of cheezes and a perch fishie layer, too! Yummmmm. And  don't forget the catnip flavoring, too!
Happy Tuxie Tuesday!
Hope all of you lucky enough to have daddies had a lovely Sunday.
Love ya,
Quinnie

Still hard at work

Well I spent a looooonnnnnnggg time Tuesday looking out at the traffic from the community room.  Pretty boring. Cars, but not a lot of birdie tv.  Then when we came back home it was sooooooo hot in the partment I spent a lot of time laying next to the front door trying to get a cool breeze (there wasn't one). Mommy's working hard on getting things settled.  She finally has our bed finished (except for the bed pillow--she hasn't found that yet). My little bed hasn't shown up yet!
She's trying to get ready for our new a/c. Sheesh!   Mouses!  What a lot of stuff we have.  I'm having fun crawling underneath the bags of clothes and blankets and stuff in the bedroom.
And the quilt is back on the bed. No more hiding under the winter flannel sheets! About time, wouldn't you say? Especially with all the hot weather....
Anyone close want to come over and help Mommy??
Bring pizza (she doesn't know I said that).
With all this work her numbers (remember she's a diabetic) are great, so a few carbs won't hurt her. Don't forget the mushrooms (for ME).
And a little nip couldn't hurt.
Love ya,
Quinnie Makayla
yawn... I need another nap. Watching Mommy is hard work.
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

News, news, news!

Mommy and I are camping out for the next several days. All her clothes and the kitchen stuff is all packed up.  Are we moving? NOT YET. They had peoples come in and do that and to clean everywhere.  They were nice peoples, and liked kitty cats. One even picked me up and cuddled me! They burned some coffee beans on the stove cause they said it would refresh the air.  Guess it worked, so maybe your mommies and daddies can do that, too.
Anyway, my bed has been washed, Mommy's bed is naked except for bags and bags of stuff, all the kitchen stuff is in totes and peoples aren't coming back till Tuesday!
Tuesday we will be "tented" and they will  do another heat treat.  We don't really know why, except management here wants to irritate us and inconvenience us, cause there aren't any bugs here.
Mommy gets to open a bag up and get some clothes till Tuesday and towels so she can shower, but then the bags have to be closed again. We also got a pan for Mommy to cook with, and Mommy got one of the guys to find her can opener.
Well, that's not the end, but the rest is good news:
Tuesday evening there is  meeting and they are replacing all the garbage foods with healthier choices and peoples get to vote on what they like in the vending machines.
Thursday they are  coming in all the partments and giving us brand new air conditioners!
Maybe this place isn't so bad.
 
I do want my bed back. They washed all the good furs off it! I have some shedding to do!
Love ya!
Quinnie
