Friday is Here!

And it is sposed to be very hot and muggy. Blahhh!

Not a bad way to stay cool! More fan, Mommy!

 
Mommy closed the blinds all the way in the living room (except for the missing slat) because we get the morning sun, and yes, it did help keep us cool!
She took one of her pain pills yesterday evening and it was hard to wake her up this morning. Oh, she was awake, just enjoying the painless-ness. As you know, she has the arthur-itis, and it really really bothered her yesterday, and the doctor gave her pain pills. He doesn't want her to have corti-something shots (thanks a lot. Mommy already gives herself two insulin  shots a day) because they raise her glucose levels. So, if the pain is mild, she takes what she calls TargetTylonol, over the counter stuff. But yesterday it was really really bad, so she took a pain pill. She was so relaxed this morning after a comfy night with little pain I really had to work hard to convince her to get up. And when she did finally, she went to sit on the recliner. I jumped up on her lap (I am NOT a lap cat) and kept up the song of my people until she got up again and fed me. THEN  she took her levels and took her pills and gave herself her shot and THEN she made her coffee and made her own brekkie.
And the next thing? She got out the Furminator! Nice to lose some furs in this weather plus the thing makes me tingle all over like scritchies do!
Do I have her trained or what? Well, to be purrfectly honest, I usually am polite and wait for her to take her levels and her pills and give herself her shot before I demand my brekkie. Gotta keep her healthy so she DOES feed me and give me water! But she didn't get up for hours and hours [Mom: 7:30?? That's my usual time!]
Keep cool this weekend. If you are outside, find some good shady spots! And drink lots of water even if you are indoors enjoying the a/c coolie thing. Water is good for your insides! Come on, you've heard that before on the blogs! And peoples, YOU drink lots of water, too. Alcohol does NOT count! MOL!
Love ya,
QUINN

Quinn, you are a sweetie to wait for your Mom to take her levels and pills.
It is important that she is healthy for you. We are also glad she has pills that can keep the pain under control.
That done, it is then ALL about you!

Yeah, what Georgia and Julie said above. You are a good kitty, Quinn. We hope your mom has more good days after the bad one.

That’s what Pop does—leaves the blinds closed when it’s very hot. Yep, you have her trained.

We had some muggy weather here, too, but today is kinda cool. In fact, it's the kind of day where a kitty might want to even snuggle under a blanket or something. Summer is supposed to return next week. We'll see...


Purrs,
