Easy Sunday and Help Requested

Happy Easy Sunday!
I absolutely love this picture of me. I take better selfies than Mommy! Woo-Hoo! The sun is sorta shining today, but no real sun puddles so far.  But we can still get our easy on. Hope you all have shopped yourself out. Or are you waiting for Cyber Monday? Peoples are downright silly this time of year!
I really didn't get any turkey. It was funny smoked stuff. Blech! But the sweet potatoes! Oh, my! I love them! So I was happy! Mommy ate her turkey without me begging for some. But she had to look out when it came to the sweet potatoes! Big NOMS!
Now to depart from our Easy:
I have to ask this since Mommy won't. We are in serious trouble (when aren't we, it seems like). It's Mommy's intsurance again.  They claim she has exceeded the limit of drugs for the year, and her insulin now costs $322. She is dropping them at the end of the year, because she can't afford their beyond limit charges. She has contacted her clinic and they can get her about a week's worth of insulin.
This whole thing is absolutely crazy again! She is switching intsurance again next year, but that means  it will only be $186 for the first month's drugs (with a deductible) which is hard for us to pay but a lot better than $322!
Is there any way to raise some green papers for us? We can't possibly pay for insulin through the end of December and pay rent. And if you don't pay rent here you are out the door! And it's cold out!
There is no way I am getting a cat tree this year. And I can get the litter I don't like cause it's cheaper.  And Mommy has put on hold some of her other medical stuff she pays "out of pocket". If you can help with anything on our wish lists, please do. But right now we need to pay for the insulin, cause, if you didn't know, this is life threatening. Yes, Mommy is a diabetic. And needs her insulin!
We hope we can solve this major problem, but... I really don't want to loose my mommy and my home!
We know that this is a hard time of year to ask, because many are struggling to get presents for their own families and food and other necessary stuff. But please? If you can help that would be oh so appreciated!
If you want our email address, it is ladycristant at aol dot com. The Pay Pal button is to the right. And if you are curious, our new stuff was given to us, we didn't pay anything, and it is all gently used.
This big worry won't stop us from celebrating, at least on my blog if nothing else.
We now return to Easy Sunday:
Stay warm, my friends. Snuggle up to your peoples! Lovies, it's cold outside (unless you live in a warmer place, then, are you prepared for company?)!
love ya,

Mommy has been on the phone for a couple of hours! It seems like the insulin will only cost $124 this month (we don't have it), and there will be $182 deductible for next year's new intsurance. Mommy does have what's called "extra help" through the DC peoples, and that does help us (it would be much more for the deductible for next year without it!). She's talked to the pharmacy, her intsurance and Medicare today! Whew! Maybe now someone out there can help us get through this! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Easy Sunday

Mommy, I really really want a cat tree for Christmas!  
Today it is foggy. I mean really foggy! And warm! So my Easy Sunday is going to be lots of naps cause although it's warm out, there is no sun! But I must say, I like the back of my new chair, and the seat,  and my new box, but please, now that we have room, could I have a cat tree? Please, Please, Please? I don't ask for much. And if I had a cat tree I would let you have this chair to sit on. Hmmm?
Today we are getting some groceries for Thanksgiving. And although Mommy said we are not having turkey, we ARE having turkey LEGS! That counts! And sweet potatoes!
Mommy goes back for the last of the heart tests tomorrow, so it won't be an all day kinda thing.  Which is good, cause they are predicting snow. They. You know, the weather guessers on tv?
Have a good Easy Sunday, all. Think good thoughts for Mommy tomorrow morning!
love ya,

Friday Update

Just a quick note late on Friday (well, actually not really late, but a lot later than we usually post). Mommy did very well on this round of tests, and still has more on Monday.
I have been a good girl (of course--shhh) and snuggled with her when she got home before I let her up to write this for me.
Tomorrow morning she gets coffee. Yea!!!!! And she can drink coffee before she goes in on Monday, too. She couldn't today.  All she had was water. Halfway through the test she got a small diet soda and some graham crackers. Then afterwards she went to their cafeteria at the hospital for lunch. She likes their food. No, she didn't bring me any left overs. That's okay. We're having chick-hen for dinner!
love ya,

Wordy Wednesday

Yes, I know. It seems like we are hiding out or something. Well, in this picture I guess I am.  It's my new box and it's in the living room, so I can be private but still close to Mommy. Can you see me?
Mommy has several tests she needs to take. I thought she was waaayyy done with school! But she told me they were tests for her heart, and she had to go to the human vets for them.  She's had two, and she's having more on Friday and again on Monday.
So we are dreadfully behind in writing posts and reading your postings. I'm trying to make Mommy catch up. So if you get comments from us on an older post, that's why.
It is very very cold here, and I hate to see Mommy go out in this weather, but she says she is only out for a minute or two before she gets in her ride, so that's not bad.
We are having a constant fashion show here (I miss it , of course) of all the woofies showing off their sweaters and coats before they go on their walkies. We hope that all kitties and woofies can stay warm this winter. It's starting off pretty brutal!
We are loving our new living room. I will, in the coming days, show you my new places to sit and sleep and stuff.  Stay tuned! Mommy's got that wicked camera out a lot!
Please remember to think of Mommy on Friday and Monday as she goes in for her tests.

Nice Wordy Wednesday, huh?
Keep warm (or cool as the case may be).
love ya,

We know there is a long list of four leggeds and two leggeds who need help right now. Please, think kind thoughts, healing thoughts, nice prayers for everyone. Thank you. We will do the same!

Monday Mutters

We have to add to Sunday's Blessings: We are both at home watching the snowy crap from the inside of our cozy refuge!
Yeah, Winter hit. The cold hit. But Mommy doesn't have any real appointments until Friday. She could go run errands, but she really doesn't have to.  And right now we don't have the green papers. I have a Chewy delivery coming very shortly and that has to be paid for. So we are both home!
Stay warm. Stay inside. The woofies who need to go walkies, you keep safe!

love ya,
Mommy Carol

Blest Sunday Offering

Welcome to our Blest Sunday offering! Thank you, Dezi and Lexi for this special occasion!
First of all, IT'S MY SECOND GOTCHA DAY!  
Mommy and I have been together two whole years. I am so thankful I found my mommy!
This blog has been going for several years, and we are thankful that we have so many friends on here!
You make us want to come back day after day. We don't always post, but we are constantly reading and catching up, and we do comment when we can.
We are blest by all of you!
Now more blessings:
This is what we were sleeping on (minus the mattress and stuff). A broken bed. What? You didn't believe us? You should have!
We were given a new bed, and some quilting church ladies gave us a patchwork quilt! Mommy has wanted one, and it is beautiful! And comfy.  Blest again!
Well, our next blessing was a chair to replace our daybed:
And now in our living room we have chairs instead of that dumb daybed. This is Mommy's rocking chair, that was in the bedroom before:
And the little corner of a table? You see on the lower left? That was in mommy's closet cause there was no room for it before with the daybed. The legs screw on, and it was easy to do. It was broken down for easier storage before. Not broken. Taken apart!
Oh, and the tv stand was replaced (it was only propped up cause two legs were broken). It's a little wobbly, but we think it is a lovely thing:
Pardon the dust. It was more important to get everything settled than dusting!
This is what we have been working on and busy with.  The bedroom is not totally arranged yet. We were blest to be given these things to help our home become more of a home.  Mommy says it feels more like a living room than every before. And I can vouch for the nice comfy bed!
Those of you who contribute to our paypal account, you have been such a blessing, too! We know that there are lots of those who need help besides us, and we are so thankful for those who are able to give. The green papers are very helpful since we are on a limited budget! I get better food, better litter, where do you think my own little bed and my toys came from?  I am so blessed that you think of us! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Every little amount you can contribute adds up and helps us!
It's been requested that we do an Amazon wish list. But we just have lists (mine, Mommy's, and others) that we added to our pages. Check them out, help if you can. With any of the lists!!
Blessings, blessings, blessings. Good friends and warm hearts.
We are sending you the good warm fuzzies, of course!
love ya,

Finally Friday

Mommy and I have been busy. Good busy. All will be revealed soon.  Our place is sort of "under construction" for a bit. "Our place" means home. And no we are NOT moving!

In other news, well, nothing else really is going on.  It has gotten colder, of course, and we take every sunny day we can. Currently it is NOT a sunny day, this lovely "head shot" is from a sunny day.

I think this lovely shot of me should be on all my blog posts. Do you agree? Or is that too vain? Well, maybe it should be darker, cause in this picture I kinda look a little like my angel sister, brandi, who is gray and white, and I am black and white. Lots more pictures to look over!

Back to snoopervising Mommy!
love ya,

Monday Mutters

We hope you all had a spooktacular Halloween! We had lots of Halloweeny pictures (none of me! Thank you, Mommy) and stuff to share. But Halloween turned out fairly quiet and mellow. Saturday and Sunday, too. I actually did a nice thing for Mommy this morning. She found me next to her head this morning, being really quiet and all lovey when she woke up. I usually wait for her to wake up before I jump up on the daybed. But I fooled her this morning. And she was lovey back!

I think there's something to this lovey stuff. Might have to do it more often. I get rubbies and strichies a lot, and even once in a while I'm in the mood for a nice belly rub. But nothing as lovey as today. When she got up she actually fed me first! First! Usually she does her medicine stuff first and her shot. Wow!

Notice I said fairly quiet. Except for a lady knocking on the door looking for some guy named "Butch" and a campaign worker wanting to talk about a certain candidate for office (no names because we don't publicly want to support anyone on my blog except Dory for Blogville Mayor). It just so happens Mommy likes the candidate and feels he does a good job, so she told the worker she didn't need any paper stuff on the candidate and told him she already has decided to vote for him. She shooed the worker away very quickly with a nice smile. No paper stuff!

In utter mutter news: Don't forget, my Gotcha Day is November 9th and I have been here two whole years! That makes me three.
I'm testing out a different box, so I will let you know soon whether I want to keep it. It is smaller than my condo, but not a bad hidey place!
love ya,
