The dog days of summer have certainly arrived. 90's, served up with humidity, is way too hot for me. From Mutts;

And this is how my cats handle the heat....all piled up on top of each other. Of course, they do live in air conditioning, so they aren't suffering too much. They have both been really tired after several days of noisy fireworks. They aren't afraid of the noise, but they snooze lightly....get startled awake.....snooze lightly......get startled awake. You could just see the expression of annoyance after each rude awakening.

Five minutes after the sleep picture was taken, Gracie took a racing lap through the house, leaving no rug unturned. She slides into each rug as if she's making the game winning home run!

This was left by my blue jay friend that stops to take a cool down in the bird bath everyday. He's been a regular with the excessive heat.

This picture doesn't capture the soft iridescence of the feather. It easily caught my eye when I walked by it outside on the sidewalk. God certainly has a good eye for color!


  1. Your cats are adorable - our little Leroy has similar random bursts of energy, followed by LONG naps! But that's ok...at 11-1/2, he's earned them.

  2. Thanks, Betsy. Mine are both in their senior years too. Of course, napping was the main event even when they were young!
