It's HOT!!

It is soo hot! Mom came home from work, and as usual I begged and begged to go out. She said no, its 105F outside! Finally, when the sun was almost down and it was shady everywhere, she took me out. At first I was excited, but it was still so hot! It was still around 100F!



We stayed out a little bit. Kavan was begging at the glass window door, so Mom brought him out too. But all we did was lay around on the cool grass. Then I got up, went back to the glass window door and asked to be let back in. Whew...I should have listened to Mom.

About an hour later, I asked to be let out the front. Hey, maybe it would be cooler out front! Mom said no.....

We are looking at several days of this. I worry about the kitties who are living only outside. I hope they can stay cool.

We hope dey can stay cool too, and find water to drink...it's best to have a furever home wif air conditioning and food and fresh water available at all times. Poor homeless kitties...

Hi Tara, I'm come to say hi!. My place is very hot too, Me and My slave are in Thailand. One of the most hottest country in the world!!!. And I'm so glad that my information was useful for you. My slave told me that you're Royal Siamese "Seal point" and you're very cute. Hope we'll meet each other again at your blog or my blog. Meowwwwwww

I'm sorry it's so hot and going outside isn't nice for you. A front Monty in the grass is a good way to cool off. I also feel very worried about all the outdoor kitties when it is very hot or very cold.

We don't fink we would like it that hot either. It's only in the low 60's here, and raining all the time. Grass is good furr keeping cool. We hope the outdoor kitties are all right.

It is also hot here.
Only near evening we will have some rain.
I like you staying at grass and shadow, hope you have very nice air.

Dragonheart said...

Wow, it is really hot where you are! I hope that you stay cool, and that the poor cats living outside can find lots of water and cool places to hang out.

Hi Tara

Coolin your heels in some purrty green grass!

We like you worry about our fellow catizens without good homes like ours. When it rains we wonder where our furfriends find shelter and when it's too cold or too hot. We wonder and purr. We were once homeless ourselves, so we understand what our furfriends are going through. It's sad that every one of them doesn't have a furever home like we do.

Bless your heart Tara!!! Look at you all stretched out like that, trying to cool off your belly furs. We hope that it cools down for you guys real soon. And we hope you don't experience any blackouts from high electricity consumption!

Daisy said...

Tara, that is a very good pose for staying cool!

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

yikes! that's way too hot. we don't think it ever gets that hot here. we sure hope it gets cooler for you furry soon!

jcfloresinc said...

Tara, that's so nice of you to worry about the outdoor cats. It's so sad that there are more cats than homes.
The grass looks cool, but the heat makes everything hot. We have humidity. Ugh! It's like living in a sauna. Tigger stays in the garage on top of the freezer to cool off and Mom always keeps lots of water for him. When it's real hot he'll stay inside all day. Hope it cools down soon so you can visit the outside again.
Your FL furiends,
Samantha & Tigger

Zoey and the furballs (the Zoo Crew) said...

Oh man that's really hot. We don't even like to go outside when it's 90. I agree about the poor homeless kitties.

Monty Q. Kat said...

It's too hot outside here as well. MomBean won't even let the littleBeans out to play that much for fear of them overheatin'. And they don't even have any fur.

Monty Q. Kat said...

Hold on, you're doing the Monty Q! ::laughs::

Lux said...

Even your body language says you're hot, Tara! I hope it cools down there soon ...

Donny and Marie and Casey said...

Cool is good...it's been very hot here, we try to cool down in the shade of the shrubs outside or lay on the hardwood floors etc inside.

I nominated you for a Rockin' Girl Blogger award, come to my blog for all da details!

Stay cool, Tara!

Honey P. Sunshine said...

r those delta breezes, they came in last nite and this morning was heavenly cool

Jake and Bathsheba said...

Tara, I don't mind the heat, but over 100 degrees would be a bit much even for me. I was laying in the shady grass this afternoon as Mom and Dad did some repair work to the shed. I think it was around 90 today, but the humidity wasn't too bad. Sometimes I like to retreat to the cool dirt underneath some of the tall plants in our jungle garden. My deck is shady because it is half covered with a roof and the other half is shaded by a maple tree that grows out of the middle of it so I can stay cool by stretching out on it. The slats allow some ventilation beneath me. Ah, life outdoors is good for me.
