Wacky Wednesday

Cats Cool Off
With the heat index around 115F during the day,
the kitties are looking for ways to keep cool and relax.

KC tries a modified "road kill" position in front of the fan.
Must not have worked, because she finally falls asleep on her treehouse.
(Note the lovely "golden paw" hanging down)
Missy finds an empty bookcase...
(any guesses who emptied it?)

...but moves back by my desk to finish her nap.
(Aren't her paws and markings beautiful?)

Sol naps completely hidden from view. (ha ha)
And finally, even tiny Texas tornado torties have to sleep.
She's no doubt dreaming up new adventures.
*************
Thanks to everyone for your emails and calls about Margaret.
They just admitted her and will keep her next to ICU for observation.
Don't know what is wrong right now, she says she is exhausted.
I'll see her tomorrow afternoon, Charley has an appointment in the morning.

Now, member, that 115F is a HEAT INDEX, a "feels like" temperature. We don't gets it that hot here.
It wuz about 97F akshun degrees, but wif high humidity an no winds an lots of sun... well, it wuz hot an sticky.
An of course, we's got tha air condishuning on... it stays on almost year round.

ML said...

Hmmmm, just noticed some comments. How did every cat guess it was me that played "Will it break or will it bounce" with the bookcase?

You all stay cool! That's hot! It actually has cooled off over here on the east coast. We had temps of 110 w/the heat index last week. You know...I don't think I've ever seen KC's tummy that exposed, lol. What a beatiful tummy it is!

I'll be keeping Margaret in my thoughts and prayers!

We'll be purring and praying for Margaret and Charley -- and for you, too, ML. I'm also praying for a brother-in-law who's having an angiogram this morning and for his wife who must endure the agony of the unknown. Lots of praying this morning.

Nothing like a hot day to get kitties to show off all their byootiful markings. I like the "road kill" position best!

I enjoyed the Monday post about all the havoc that Faith Boo caused! Way to go, girl!

PB & J said...

Daisy said...

Airing out the tummy is a good way to keep cool!

Gosh, that's a heck of a lot of heat. Must have some humidity there. It's Texas. Heard it's in the 100's down in So. Calif. But it might not be where Grr, Midnight and Cocoa are as I think they are by the ocean. I give odds that it was Faith that did the book case in. Hi pretty Missy, sleep well.

Aha, just read some of the comments. It was Faith that did the book case in.
