Chatty Cats: Heat, Crafting and More!


Wow, it’s been hot here this past week. Thankfully, we have AC, so we’re comfortable inside the house. But hot outside means the cats have been hanging out in the catio less. They venture out in the morning, but that’s about it. How is it in your neck of the woods? 

Turn Down the Heat!

Sophie: Fan harder, Mama, harder!
Mama: I know it’s hot out, Sophie, but I can’t stand here all day fanning you off.
Sophie: Why? Got somewhere to be?
Mama: Because this is tiring and making me hot!
Sophie: Sounds like someone is being a little lazy…

Today’s high is supposed to be 113 degrees. Ugh!

Crafting

Dexter: We crafting today, Mama?
Mama: Sure, what do you want to make?
Dexter: How about a card for Pops.
Mama: What should it say?
Dexter: Dear Pops, stay off my side of the bed. You have an entire house to sleep in. Why must you ruin my sleep? Yours truly, Dexter (P.S. That hairball on your pillow was from me.)

Sophie: Slurpy slurp slurp.
Mama: Keeping clean for all your fans out there?
Sophie: No, I’m lickin’ the chicken off my paw.
Mama: You’re not supposed to have chicken.
Sophie: No one told my paw that. Bad paw! Mmmm…yummy paw.

Mama: Fine. But I’m not bringing you a litter box.

  1. Olive are you cackling in that photo??? You all sure have some great conversations with your Mom – and Dexter – you will be one lucky boy if your Mom delivers food to your door instead of YOU going after the food. My Mom refuses “home delivery”……

    Hugs, Teddy

  2. OMG! That is hot! We have a screened porch and they don’t go there except early morning and evening. The tiles stay cool and the fans are going but they still aren’t having any of the midday heat (and it’s not as hot here!).

  3. What is it about cat logic? It’s super hot here too but they will still leave the AC indoors and go out to the catio and lie like a bunch of beached whales. MOL

    Harley’s tentacle whiskers are the best!

  4. Olive is much to elegant to let you off the hook for that unflattering picture. I’d be sure to keep the bathroom and bedroom doors closed for a while :)

  5. You’re all so witty! Sophie, we heard about that heat you’ve been having there. Yikes! Hugs to you all.

  6. Hello! My cats sleep all day in the coolest spot they can find. Here in Stavanger, on the coast of the Hafrsfjord, we usually have a breeze, and though it is too hot for me, I’m sure the cats (desert animals) can bear it! And after last summer when it rained everyday, we really are close to heaven with one sunny day after the other.
