I felt sorry for these guys...it's too darn hot.
Flowers adorn the bridge in the center of our town.
Now these kids had the right idea.
Tucked away in a shady spot on his porch was this old cat.
I see him every day on my walk.
Then it was off to cat sit ...
Ebony is very shy until I sit on the floor.
She is 13 years old and shameless as can be. I'm smitten.
Lucky has it figured out.
She is smart enough to stay back and wait to see what tactics I use to entice her closer.
We are bonding. OK...the treats worked and now we are friends. No need for treats anymore (well, maybe once in awhile).
I finished up my visits with the boys, Bud & Chase this morning. They live in a lovely, cool log cabin with large windows for their pleasure.
The birds & squirrels were fed so they will be entertained now while they wait for their person to return. The second he returns they are out the door. I love these two brothers.
Cat-tip-for-the-day=^..^=avoiding heat-stroke in cats
In this heat I worry about out-door cats. They can suffer heat-stroke just like a human can. Here are a few things to watch for if your cat spends time outside in this blistering heat.
5.Dark red gums
7.Increase body temperature. (Over 102.5 deg)
To avoid this, please keep your cat inside in this hot, humid weather. If that is impossible, leave lots of cold water outside for your cat and I don't mean one bowl. Leave many bowls of cold water here and there in shady spots so there is no chance they run out. Provide a shady spot for them to sleep. Check on them periodically to be sure they are not showing any of the above signs.
