 Who can resist kittens?
Prepare to squee at little Gunnar!
We love kittens! This one is adorable.
Well, we all are when we are kittens, right?

Friday and the Commentathon

We are heading over to Sparkle's blog to honor her and to raise some green papers for Tabby's Place. Since we are unable to give green papers to this worthy place, ourselves, we are commenting, as that will help the cause!  If that is all you can do, it is a small thing to comment, but as Glogirly said, small things can add up to big things. If you are able to, contribute green papers, too.
See you soon.
Go. Now. Comment on her blog. This means you. Scoot.  Let's honor Sparkle and all she has done for kitties by doing something for kitties. What are you waiting for? Carry on!
QUINN and Mom Carol

Did Anyone Miss Us?

  Hello there. Hope someone missed us, cause we missed being here. We’ve been leaving comments here and there whenever Mommy felt well enough. I think we are back now, maybe on a limited basis, but back.  Mommy has been very very sick and I have been kinda worried. She has had lots of different things going on, from toofie problems to kidney problems to heart problems to just wacky diabetes problems. All at once.  There are days she has not been able to do anything at all, the pain has been so bad.
And of course, with all the medical problems and changes in medicines comes green paper problems. We are buried in bills. If anyone can help, please do. Please?
Mommy’s wish list is going to be set back yet another year.  She wants a SodaStream (has for a couple years), and a Keurig. Not gonna happen.  She also has been looking for some flannel sheets (winter is coming) only they had to be plaid.  She did find some, finally, and decided to cut some of the groceries this month and order them. They were very inexpensive, so it wasn’t too bad a cut.  And she definitely did not cut MY foodies! She also wants a new patchwork quilt, but every one she has found is way too expensive. So that’s not going to happen, either.  The final thing she wanted to get was a very sturdy cat tree. For lovely big kitty, me! I don’t have one! But she doesn’t want to put anything together (no tools), and that is just something else we can’t afford.  Sigh.  Boxes only for me. I love them, thank goodness!
 So we get the flannel sheets, at least. That is something! I think it will be nice to snuggle with mommy when she’s curled up in bed this winter. Even without a quilt!
We were very very sad to hear about Sparkle. Mommy and I cried when we read about that. But there is somekitty called Summer coming?  And there are some other new kitties on the blogosphere. Even a little black and white one named Ringo! We like all little kitties, but I like black and white ones cause we know they are special (like me, right?). Oh, Mommy, I know they are all special! Can’t I have any fun?
You are all in our thoughts. Thank you for yours.
Love ya,
QUINN and Carol

Wednesday Guest

It seems it was my Gotcha Day today! So I'm here to celebrate with my Mommy! Pretty, wasn't I.
QUINN is doing fine. She's totally her own cat, quite different than me. But she does love Mommy, and she sorta listens to me once in awhile.
I am having lots of fun. My sweet boyfriend cat is here, now, too, and that makes me very happy. We spend time together, and neither of us is feeling crappy any more. We have lots of friends to play with, here, and we all are waiting patiently for you to join us someday.
I kinda miss Mommy but I stop by every day to see her and I am her guardian angel cat.
Take good care of Mommy and Quinnie for me, okay? Your guardian angels are surrounding you!
Much Love to All,
Angel brandi

Finally Friday

Whew! What a night we just had! Thunderboomers so loud it felt like the building was exploding! Mommy said it was the loudest she had ever heard! Needless to say, when the boomers were going, I tried to stay by mommy's side to comfort her. But oh my codness, at one point I scrambled for under the dresser! And stayed there!
I'm going to catch up on my sleep now. No sunpuddles today! Have a great Friday, all!
love ya,

Catching Up

Far too long since we posted. Sorry. Mommy stuff, ya know? We have tried to keep up with reading your blogs and sometimes commenting, so we are not totally clueless as to the news.  But for a few days we have been off line, so that's one excuse.
Monday mommy cleaned cause Tuesday we were getting company.  It was a nice lady named Barb, and I love her.  She gives nice scritchies! Wednesday the power went off (thank goodness it was not muggy! We had the windows open). Don't worry. The elevators still worked and we have two generators here, and they were making sure they were working properly. That's why the power was out.  I think they call it a Maintenance Check. Also yesterday the bug  guy was here.  We have a new company. This time it is one of the head maintenance guys from Headquarters, or what ever they call it! And the stuff they spray is toxic to kitties and humans. He wouldn't spray till I was put in my PTU and we left. We went downstairs to the lobby area, and mommy read her book. And what a book! It is one called The Tell-Tailed Heart by Monica Shaughnessy and we won it in a drawing a couple months ago.  Mommy waited until she could get a real book, cause we don't have a Kindle or anything mobile like that. And we have been reading it.  I must say, it is about Edgar Allen Poe's kitty and how the kitty solves mysteries and is Eddie's muse. A good, very good read!!! Four paws and two thumbs up!
I am forcing mommy to write this, cause she is about to leave for the clinic and won't be back for hours and I did want to say something here. I better let her go.
My new trick! Awefully skinny railing on the bed and basically an inch or two in the window.  But the whiffies were worth it!

love ya,
