SCORE

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!
Love,
Quinnie

Here We Go Again

Hello!
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!)

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
