Sending purrs to CO

July 20th 2012 12:40 pm
[ View A Comments ]

What a senseless tragedy with so many people hurt & killed! My mom was just at a movie last evening (Ice Age 4) in Minnesota an hour from home so it's very raw for her. She's thinking of going to the free matinee of that new toony pirate movie Weds afternoon in town. The mentally ill in our area are helped enough so she doesn't expect a pirate to burst in and fire a cannon. She don't even wanna live on this planet anymore, if only we could move to a more peaceful one.

As a DDP I thought it would be appropriate to send loving purrs to the victims and their families.


Success for mom

Mom has been feeling pretty proud of herself all morning for leaving her hand weights in front of the pantry door. I'm equal in weight to both combined and couldn't get the door open like I did before. Since I've been outsmarted she can relax and get her important things done like ordering my thunder shirt.


I'm in trouble

The other night I got up on the dresser & knocked some unbreakable stuff off, then last night I got into the forbidden pantry where she keeps food, cleaning stuff and stores other things in there. Wow is she mad at me, considering crating me in the bathroom in the dark tonight for the past 2 nights of mischief! She can't do anything about the pantry door & tried leaving noisy pop cans in front of it but I got brave (or stupid) enough to break through that barrier. She's gonna talk to the caretaker and find out what she can do to lock it up that won't take too much out of the deposit.

Update: Mom put her 2 5 lb free hand weights in front of the single bi-fold pantry door and she has difficulty opening them without moving the weights, and since I weigh about 10 lbs she thinks (and hopes) that will prevent me from entering. She's considering putting a baby gate in front of the door if one will fit so the door won't open when I rub it.


Scary fireworks!

Mom knew this was the night they would be shooting fireworks at the fairgrounds several blocks away for prairie pioneer days. I'm indoors only so Mom wasn't about to take me out. We're high up enough that we could see the sky ones and once they started I got really scared so mom shut me in the bathroom and enjoyed them. She's thinking of putting me in the bathroom all night (we only have 1 in our apartment) so I can return to normal. There won't be anymore fireworks until the fair next month and she'll put me in the bathroom a few minutes early.

She sure enjoys watching those fireworks with air conditioning, no bugs, weather, or smokers around. She's going to need ear plugs or loud music from her mp3 player at the parade tomorrow so for the sake of normalcy she's gonna take her player and blast loud music in during the emergency vehicle part of the parade. She can't wait for a pancake breakfast at the fire hall!

Mom is thinking of getting me the Thundershirt for the next fireworks show and to trim my back feet claws (front declawed). She'll just have to manage with ear plugs & her ear buds n mp3 player, we are so alike when it comes to loud noise. We don't mind if music is turned up but everything else sets us off.


Friday the 13th

My profile photo has been changed for today. Mom feels lucky to have me and loves how nice I am to her family & friends (head butts all around). She loves my fluffy black coat too! We missed each other so much last weekend when she was away so we spent a lot of time cuddling when she got home. She knows you can't judge a cat by the color of his/her coat, each kitty is different.


Mom's concert photos

She still has concert hangover but is able to walk despite sore legs today. Yesterday she had to crawl like a baby when she got up.

If you're interested in the close photos go to http://kennychesneycentral.webs.com and click the photos link at the top of the page, then it's the first album. You can also see photos from other shows (and his hometown) she went to before this past weekend.


She's back!

I missed mommy so much, she was away for 2 nights. She had a great time at the show and got lots of good pictures. She couldn't do anything though until we had a good cuddle session first. Her voice is coming back and she has to take ibuprofen just to be able to walk (standing for hours on end in sand bar does that to her). She wants to go to Pizza Hut for the P'zone deal tonight so she can just sit and they'll wait on her. I can't blame her for what she went through yesterday, sweating in the sand bar, unable to eat, only allowed to take 1 bottle of water & couldn't get more to drink 'til after the show.


She's rarin' to go!

Mom has prepared her food for tomorrow (she has an unreserved standing only spot so must take some food & a bottle of water), washed the dishes, done the laundry & put it all away. She just needs to double check what she packed, go out for supper, shower & make sure I'm set up for the next 2 nights on my own and take the big bag of garbage to the chute. She worked so hard to clean yesterday and get things done so she can unwind when she gets home.

She's gonna leave a sticky note notice on the apt door that I'm here alone and who to contact in case of an emergency. She gave spare keys to an aunt in town that can be here in minutes. Sometimes neighbors neglect their cooking and smoke alarms go off. She has left feeding instructions on the fridge but will be leaving more than enough food out for me and a dish full of water. She plans to hide my treats around the apartment so I can have fun finding and eating them. The radio will be on, the a/c will run on low & we'll sure miss each other 'til she returns!


I'm gonna miss mom

She's already stressed thinking about all the things she has to do today so she's ready to go tonight, but still looking forward to the show tomorrow. She's gotta have breakfast & lunch here then clean all the dishes in the sink. Then she's doing the laundry after that. Once the laundry is done she's gonna finish packing & round everything up together. Then she's gotta figure out her supper (she either wants to go to DQ or order in - pizza). Then take a shower & spend a little time with me (and make sure my food & water bowls are really full) since she'll be gone until Monday. She bought the tix in December before she knew I was coming to be her roomie.

It's her 15th time seeing Kenny (wishing she could meet him), 2nd seeing Tim & Jake and 1st seeing Grace. It's her first time in the sand bar fur real! She's been near the sand bar before but never in it. She expects crazy rowdy drunk people around her by the end of the night. She doesn't drink expensive venue booze at shows, she prefers occasional drinks with family and it's less rowdy.


PC spraying is done

Mom made sure we both ate and used the bathroom before they came to spray. She crated me both to keep me safer and allow the guy to do his job without my interference. She closed off access to the bedroom & bathroom where the spraying was done, and he said it's safe enough we could stay in so mom e-mailed the vet that he said it's safe.

Mom has a lot of things to do this afternoon, I got fur all over the place! She brushed me real good yesterday.
