The humidity was at a peak today and driving from house to house would have been torture if it wasn't for the a/c. Most homes are air-conditioned but even if they are not, keeping the doors and curtains closed kept each house cool enough.
There was cat-sitting to do in three little towns today; Carleton Place, Almonte and Beckwith and many country roads to drive. I felt sorry for the road workers at construction sites as I drove by. The humidity was sickening and most were wiping their heads and squinting.
All the kitties were comfortable and happy to have company for awhile. There was brushing and combing to do and time was set aside for a chit-chat. Cats love nothing more than for you to sit with them and just talk. They love to have 100% of your attention and you can see it in their eyes. The feeding is always done last. That way they are enjoying their meal as I head out the door.
On my way home after finishing up for the day I saw that most sites had shut down early and the workers were gone. I didn't blame them.
It was fish and chip night in a cool pub and then time to call it a day.
