We Survived

 Again from Carol:
We got to spend our time out of the apartment downstairs Wednesday. Again, no microwave, but a huge floor to ceiling window and some bushes and plants  outside (although they are not doing well in the cold at all) to look at. Quinnie's meows are not too loud, so we didn't bother anyone.  And she curled up and was content for much of the day. Except when people came to say hi to her, and compliment her lovely furs. I think she was a hit.  We had a water fountain and bathrooms, so we were not thirsty.  And the vending machines provided a very surprisingly nice turkey sandwich for me.  Quinn had her own foods, but she wasn't much interested in eating.
The worst part was coming home.  The apartment was so hot Quinn was overheating badly (all that fur) and I wasn't much better.  I spend a good half hour cooling her down with wet towels, and when she felt better I left a cool one on her, and she didn't move for another fifteen minutes, loving the coolness. She's all better. I left three windows open through most of Thursday. Whew! 
We are back to normal now, and Quinn had to wait patiently yesterday twice.  In the afternoon I went out with a friend and then we had movie night last night.  It was the lovely Happy Feet Two.  We had some grandchildren in the audience, which was so nice, and everyone  enjoyed the movie.
I of course have company coming today for a short while and I think we all would be more comfortable downstairs in the commons.  Besides, this place needs a thorough cleaning. And I mean thorough and days.  Fall cleaning? I guess. We don't have a cat tree, but I think Quinn will be on a stack of plastic tubs safe from all the ruckus snoopervising. I have a funny feeling we won't see Traci, either!
Hopefully this weekend I can try again with the stupid camera.  It sure is frustrating. I wish I had my own.
Quinn will be back this weekend. She isn't really used to all this blogging.
Thanks for your patience waiting for pictures.
I'M not patient. Grrrr.

We glad that's over and you're back home again. She is a pretty girl and it's no wonder she was a hit. :-)

What an adventure (if you can call it that) you've had! We missed the last few days because of trying to get into the swing of things again after coming home from up north this weekend. Sounds like little Quinn is a patient and adaptable kitty and that you two are just right for each other.

OMC! Quinn! I haven't met you before! You've gotten a furever home and everything. I know your new Mom misses Brandi but she loves you also.

Oh, this does not sound like too much fun at all. I am not a big fan at all of the heat - it's just not a nice way to be!@ We hope you are all settled back now.

BTW, when you have time, pop over to my blog - I have given you an award - I'm not sure if you have already received this one but we hope not!
