08/11/2017 – Summer Hots

Tessa: Since last week, we’ve been stuck in the summer hots. Our area broke hot records and we even had an afternoon of rolling black-outs probably because everyone was trying to cool off, which was what the electricity did, too. It turned off. But not for too long.

Even though it was very, very bright outside… unbelievably bright, too bright to take a nap, one might observe, I remained calm.

When it got warm in the afternoon and the thought of a nap was just too hot, I stayed steadfast.

And when the fans stopped moving air and the hots started creeping in, I was a rock. A toasty rock.

When Mom came in from outside, she said the wind was like a blast furnace out there. And still, with furs mused by invisible forces, I continued onward unfettered by nature.

Face it, people. I was one cool blue cat.

And I think my cool look is way, way cooler than the look my sister Pia has going on at the moment.

07/17/2017 – What We Did…

… on our summer vacation.

We all napped. One of us found a great spot for long, sunshiny, afternoon naps.

One of us pondered the successful likelihood of shaving one ultra-floofy napping girl.

While it’s not the dog days of summer here yet (and we are into summer here, finally), why is it you never hear about the cat days of summer? Cat days are here every day and just maybe a few weather people ought to visit our house to verify this for themselves!
