Suzy Leaves Today

My Suzy is going to her Aunt Cin’s today. I know it’s early but I don’t want to many major changes to fast for the cats sake, plus I need to use the big box she lays in. Also, Cin lives 30-45 minutes away so it gets a little difficult driving back and forth constantly, she needs a few days break. She will be with Suzy and her cats getting them acclimated.

I must add, I am a bit nervous about staying at Cin’s and hope it doesn’t last long. She lives in a small, Fifth Wheel Trailer and I will be sleeping on the table bed. Most of my stuff with be on the bed, also. She keeps the television on all day for background noise, and if I have a Migraine, there is nowhere to go! I did order some Earmuffs but they aren’t noise cancelling since I will need to be able to sleep in them.

I really wish and pray something opens soon, whether it’s a small Trailer like Cin’s or a Studio Apartment where I can be alone. I also don’t want to keep Tara and Monkey in the Pet Hotel to long, despite how nice it is. It costs as much per week as Siegel Suites!

I am thinking of getting a small, Pumpkin at the store today and making Pumpkin Seeds before going to Cin’s. She doesn’t like them so they would be all for me!

Monkey’s Day

My poor Monkey has had a rough time for a bit.

In order to see the doctor, she has to have Gabapentin, first. Last night was a minor struggle, but I got it in her without injury. Today was a different story.

She was struggling and dug her claws in my arm as Cin squirted the med in her mouth, between hisses. But we did it, and she didn’t really wake up until appointment time. Then, they had to give her something to put her out for a few minutes in order to do her nail trim.

Anyway, at least everything is updated and only one more med giving to go, for her trip for her vacation!

I noticed the top picture made her look injured, but I double checked and she is okay. It’s just the lighting.

I am going to continue to refer to this as “Vacation” for Monkey and Tara. I am in no way giving them up and we will be reunited as soon as possible! Plus, if I think of it any other way, I start to stress and feel guilty, especially when last night Tara put her paw on my arm, and for the last few days, both have been sleeping on either side of me.

Migraines, Moving & Holidays

It’s been a bad start of the month with Migraines. Between the Flu Shot, Cat Stress and a Dirty Heater Vent.

Yesterday was a Double! But no more side effects from the Flu Shot, I am using extra blankets, and no reason to stress over the cat situation. I have booked rooms (Kitty Cottages) at a Pet Hotel called, Animal Inns. They have great reviews and take all types of animals! I recommend checking out the website. Plus, Monkey and Tara will be able to see each other and have playtime together. Monkey isn’t much for sharing a room though, so I couldn’t book them, together. I am looking at this as Vacation Time for the animals!

Plans have changed a bit. Suzy is going to Cin’s a few days, prior. Monkey and Tara go to the hotel on Friday, and Saturday, the big move takes place. This is in two weeks.

Still debating on movers or help from workers in front of Home Depot, etc.. Can anyone in Las Vegas recommend reasonable local movers?

I can’t finish this without observing what today is:

Columbus Day

and now,

Indigenous Day

Any parades scheduled to celebrate either? Or, is it just another whole group of people that can be happy their group will be acknowledged per the Calendar?

Another Box Checked

Tossed and turned all night before developing a Migraine. Was up at 3 a.m. praying for guidance and peace.

I told God I am going to say a prayer before every house search or call regarding this move, from now on.

Boarding is set for Monkey and Tara. They will be staying at Animal Inns. They gave me a 15 percent discount if paying by the month but said if I get them earlier, they will refund the unused amount. I pray it doesn’t take a month to find somewhere.

I am going to take Suzy with me to Cin’s which is going to be an adventure.

We had some rain this morning, which was nice and now it is really windy and chilly. I have already started using the heater, at night.

Getting Better

I was feeling better this morning and ready to go on a walk when I was suddenly worn out and took a 3 hour nap. So, I am getting better, but not there, yet.

I did laundry and set appointments for shots for the cats, as well as an appointment for Monkey to see the vet on Monday. I think she might have a UTI which she gets, periodically. I have to pick up some Gabapentin tomorrow for her appointment because the vet can’t touch her, otherwise. Monkey turns into a wild animal.. hissing and headbutting the carrier. It even freaked Tra out when she went with me one time, and Tra doesn’t freak out over much.

I also found a possible vet which will Board them at approximately $300 a month, I just have to decide if I want to go that way. Cin is seriously considering 5 cats in her trailer, but there is no room for the litter boxes.

I am also looking into paying over $600 for an apartment for a few months, but it can’t be much over and I still need them to accept all 3 cats.

Still lots of decisions to be made and a few more weeks left to make them.

Still Blah

I don’t have the Flu. But I have Flu Symptoms which is almost as fun. Periodically sweating, can hardly stay awake, aching muscles, low appetite…

In good news, I have set a moving date and reserved storage. Still need to figure if I want Cin to drive the truck or get some actual Movers. Gotta take the cats in next week for shots so hopefully I will get a good deal on Boarding.

Tra won’t be happy; but, they are My babies and I have to do what’s best for them!

Temporary & Flu Shot

I checked on a few Siegel Suites today, thinking at least I could keep my cats with me but they don’t allow 3 animals. I also tried The Suites which do but they charge almost $500. a week! That is absolutely insane! Tra said she would take them but she has 3 cats and a dog and doesn’t want to keep my girls separate from hers, which I think will cause serious problems. So, my final option is probably going to be boarding them at the vet for a while. It sucks and I feel bad, but I really hope something opens quickly so it won’t be for to long. I would like to get them out around the 16th or so and me out around the 20th, so I have time to come back and clean this place.

I went for my Physical today and while there, I had my Flu Shot. That was around 3. Within the last hour, I am starting to get achey and sweaty. Ugh. It’s 6 now.

Cin and I tried Panera Bread. We were going to try Pizza Rev but I guess they are permanently closed. Panera Bread was okay, but not overly impressed. My Flatbread Pizza was blah and their topping options are minimal for the price. I took a lot home and will fix it up with Garlic and Olives for next time. Cin wasn’t overly impressed with her Chicken Noodle Soup Bread Bowl either, but the actual Baguette served on the side, was fresh.

Manager, Pillow & Cat

My Park Manager is so annoying!

After having to ask someone to move the mattress from the front next to the house, I had to ask a neighbor today to move it back to the front NOT against the tree (God forbid my one old mattress makes the park look crappier then it already does) because the Junk Guy comes around, tomorrow. I hope he takes the mattress even if it’s laying down!

*I wrote a letter to the Mobile Home Park Management Company telling them about the Manager, here! No, I did not sign it or put a return address except as “A Park Resident”. It may not help, but it can’t hurt.

My Pillow from Fingerhut is on the way. I swear, that thing has traveled more than I have, in the last few days. HA! Mississippi, Texas and now it’s in Arizona. I wish it would get here. It’s been a terrible month for Migraines and I am really praying it helps…along with my new Mattress.. which I seriously Love!

Ending on a note to make you smile!

Most cats catch mice. My Suzy cat sleeps in them

When Cats Stress

The cats know something is up so they are stressing!

Someone pee’d on my bed! Yes, What a joyous thing to wake up to. NOT.

Needless to say, developed a Migraine from that.

The people that want the house also want to pay extra for the Washer/Dryer. At first I was like, Cool, I don’t have to move it. But this morning I am thinking “NO! What if I need another one? The size is hard to find!” I am going to see if Tra might want to store and use it for a while. She needs a Dryer.

So, that’s my morning so far.

Laundry is running, and waiting to hear from the guy about the Background Check. Plus, need to get a Purchase Agreement printed we can take it to get notarized. Then, he can proceed getting the money from his 401K.

This is kind of a pain. When I was in AZ, I sold my mobile home and the girl saw it, gave a deposit, then we went and signed off.

Praying for a Miracle of a place to come up. Really not looking forward to the small, temporary trailer option, but at least my family would stay together.

Although, if they keep acting up, I might think differently. HA!

4 Days Free!

Of a Migraine, that is!

The one I had this morning didn’t surprise me. I was up late with fireworks and had to turn the music loud and watch tv with subtitles, so the cats didn’t freak out.

Monkey turned Psycho and bit me twice

and Susy would hear a firework go off and look at me to judge my reaction.

Tara didn’t really care.

Anyway, I usually get Migraines 2-3 times a week equalling to around 14 a month, but the amount usually drops in the Summer! So, the fact I went 4 straight days without one, is awesome!

I am in a Migraine Group on Facebook and one girl gets like 17 a month! When you are only allowed 9 Imatrex per month, that can be tough. Good thing I take them half at a time.

This is something I live with, so, I am not complaining. It’s my main Disability, and a life I am used to. I really don’t remember a life without them, although, I know I had it because these Migraines started in my 20’s. I could go back on Hormones and see if that helps, but that means started periods again, so No Thank You!
