Good Caturday Morning!
Mommy was missing yesterday. She had to go to the human doctor who looks at eyes. And this brings some problems. She has a hurtie on something called a retina in her right eye. She needs to see a specialist.
Mommy is thinking about doing a YouCaring page because she needs surgery on one of her eyes so she doesn't go completely blind in that eye. That is definitely serious, dear readers! She also needs a couple of surgeries on her leg. And dental work. If we set up this page do you think we could raise green papers for her? The last illness of hers wiped us out.
This is a very important thing. Has anyone else used this crowdfunding idea? This is more than "we are late with the rent" kind of request (which, yes we are). This is for important medical stuff. I love my Mommy and want her to be okay.
If anyone has any information, please let us know! If you would want to help with an auction or help us with the special page please let us know!
Now I have to interrupt this post so Mommy can give me let and paws rubbies. Purring helps her, you know. So at least purr for us!
love and kissies,
This slide show was published on YouTube on November 9th. That just happened to have been my Gotcha Day. And this place is where Mommy and I met!
Enjoy. Ooh and Awe and Squee. And if you can, give to your local shelter!
Good luck to all the animals that are waiting for their forever home!
And Mommy Carol
Oh, dear. We wonder if anyone can help us. Our rent is due by Monday and we do not have enough green papers to pay it (or buy Mommy's insulin). Can anyone help? Mommy's health insurance took a chunk out of her checking account to pay for 3 months of insurance without telling her. And she spent a bunch of time today trying to call them only to be transferred from one automated system to another and back again. When she got someone to finally talk to her in customer service she was told to call back Monday because they only sell insurance on weekends. They can't help her. OMC! What a waste of time! She could have been petting me and brushing me and telling me I'm pretty.
She agreed to taking her policy payment out of her checking account once a month, because that fits in with her budget. She was not aware that they had problems with that. So three months insurance almost equals her rent payment. And that and insulin were the last two things to pay this month, and she had green papers for one month insurance, one month rent, and one month of medications and insulin.
Mommy is going to Wally World tomorrow to pick up her insulin (she is almost out) and can't wait another week and a half (when she gets her monies). That has to be done!
We know there are lots of you out there who can appreciate our dilemma, and budgets are tight for many people. This was unexpected.
Mommy's doctor appointment yesterday went very well. That was the good news we were going to tell today. She is much better, but still sickie. She is on new medications, too.
We did have cable problems this week, and our internets and tv were out for a while. But they are back!
Mommy had planned to wait till Monday for her insulin, but the "bug guys" are coming Monday and she has to take me out of the partment that day and can't plan a trip to Wally World when she doesn't know when the guys are coming. And by Tuesday she won't have any insulin left.
She about had a fit when she found out today what the insurance had done. And she only found that out when she checked her balance at the bank before planning her trip to Wally World (they do have a grocery store there and she was going to maybe pick up something to make for dinner).
At this rate we will never get a pizza delivered ever again or even bacon! MOL
Can anyone help? Please? Are there any guardian angels out there?
What's that saying? When life throws you lemons-- DUCK!
Well, quack quack!
ps. my Gotcha Day is MONDAY!!!
Okay. That is the last Halloween-type picture we will put on here, Mommy.
But it does look kinda cool I have to admit.
Halloween included fireworks. What???
And in the middle of the night someone knocked on our door. Really. Insistent knocking. Mommy stumbled to the door, looked through the peep hole and said something about they had the wrong people. The person went away. She said it was a foreign woman who dressed sort of Muslim (which isn't that weird around here--there are people living here from all over the world, which is kinda cool) with the head covering and all. Mommy went back to sleep right after that, which was good for her not to ruminate (fancy word, but remember she reads to me a lot) on it.
So we are having a very lazy Sunday. A late Sunday. At least I got my foodies and water! And I made sure Mommy takes care of herself. Remember, lately she has been kinda ill and when she has a rough time of it I come sit on her and purr her better. And I hate laps! But, for Mommy....
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, and a very Easy Sunday. Send love to everyone you know and some you don't!
Love ya! (of course)
Hey, this isn't me! Mommy just thinks it's cute.
Hello again. It's Easy Sunday around here again. Well, we've been easy for a while, cause of my Mommy's been sick. She still wishes someone would come and deliver hot meals, but that's not happening. And she checked out the meal delivery plans for seniors and they are much too expensive for our budget. But a couple who live here in the building have come over and cleaned the floors and taken out the garbage, and that is a big help!
The weather has gotten cooler here, but we still have one window open a little in the living room. Fall whiffs are certainly interesting!
One of Mommy's old school friends (from way back in the dark ages) is sending us something, but isn't telling us what. Wonder wonder what it is???? Probably a silly thing from their school or something.
Mommy is on some new medicines now, but the doctor said it will take a while to notice anything, and if there is bad stuff happening, let the clinic know immediately.
That's all the news we have, really. Thank you all for your patience and good thoughts and prayers. We will try to keep up with my blog. Anyone know if those Dragon things that you can talk into and it writes what you say in your puter speaks Cat??? Wow, that would make a lot of us do happy dances!!!
We apologize for our linkie saying Caturday Calling. Our USB cord connection to the keyboard in the back of our computer refused to work this morning. Now we have a second keyboard, but when that wouldn't work either we switched USB ports. This has happened to our sound once before so we thought of this right away. Mommy hates this keyboard but didn't want to change it back cause she got tired.. This was sposed to be an automatic publishing, and that worked, but the keyboard didn't work this morning. Computers are WEIRD!
Meow again. Mommy said I could blog today!
She had two human vet appointments this week and new medicines to take (and an old one to NOT take). She is still very tired all the time, but some friends in the building came and cleaned the floors and took out the garbage for us. And, yes, they are Quinn Approved! They have a sweet kitty of their own!
Speaking of foodies, my Chewy order came today! We like Chewy
delivery days! I guess humans don't get this kind of service. Mommy
orders foodies to be delivered to her, but they come from the grocery
store and you have to cook them yourself. I mean the humans do, not me.
I wish somebody would bring Mommy some prepared food, but everyone who lives in this building is a senior and on a fixed income themselves. But she says it would be nice.... Can you mail dinners to humans like you can kitties and woofies? MOL Incoming! One pot roast dinner! MOL Incoming! One fish dinner! And don't forget Mommy loves meat loaf! And salads. And mashed sweet potatoes. And lots of veggies (we love spinach stuff). Sometimes I crack myself up!!
My new tree is fine. Mommy is thinking about moving furniture around so that I have "easier access", but that's Mommies for you. They mean well. Mommy has now moved my SleepyPod in front of the little table which is by my chair and in front of my tree. That way I can always have some place to hide and be comfy (and play with my pink Tickle Pickle). Either in my SleepyPod or the cute little home on the bottom of my cat tree. Or my linen closet shelf. Or my bed. Or "mommy's" bed. Or the shower stall. Or the pantry (that is if she EVER lets me in there! Tee hee)! For now everything is pretty much staying where it is cause Mommy is too tired.
Mommy needs another nap. Yes, you do, Mom! So let's curl up together!
We have been gone a long time (for us). We need to explain. You see, Mommy got very sick and I have been taking care of her. Since I'm the only family she has (the other members are too far away and/or simply do not care) I have to do a lot of loving her.
She has two more ppointments this week and has to pass some tests at her human vet's office. She is lots of tired all the time and other stuff. And I am the only one helping her.
She has several medical bills and we are always short of green papers these days, but too many others have needs, too, so we are kinda lost and bewildered.
There have been a couple of good things along the way. At least for me. When we were told by management here that the boxes have to go someone (who chooses to be annonymouse) has seen to it that I finally got a cat tree. It is great for stepping down off my chair (works like stairs) and the little house on the bottom is comfy. I fit! Mommy tries to get me to stay on the second step so she can pet me easier, but we're still working on that. For now it is another spot to look out the windows! Hooray! Thank you, thank you. This is lovely!! I don't even miss my box!
As soon as Mommy figures out how to get pictures downloaded on this weird puter we will show you. It has blue steps and they are furry blue, and the top of the house has a white footie print! And although I do have white paws, I DIDN'T DO THAT!
Oh, yes, the other good thing. Mommy had a nice chat with a lady at Chewey yesterday. So you know that my foodies are coming, no matter what!
And that lady reads my blog. Woo-hoo!! I feel special. Chewey peoples are so special and their service is fantastic! Lots of us use them, and if you don't, check them out!
Time to go. Love ya all,
and her mommy.
Oh, and all the windows are open today and it is sposed to be 80 degrees or better today! And it is autumn! Nice gift, Mother Nature!
