If you saw a heat wave, would you wave back? – Steven Wright

Much of the United States has been sweltering in a heat wave for the past few days, with temperatures and heat indices into the triple digits. I hope you and your kitties are keeping cool in the shade or under an umbrella, like Ruby in the photo above.

I come down squarely in the “some like it hot” category, but the last couple of days have been a bit much even for me. Allegra and Ruby are air conditoned kitties, so their only complaint has been that open windows are only happening for a few minutes at a time to give them a chance to sniff some fresh air, something they both enjoy. One thing they absolutely won’t allow me is to close any of the blinds to block out the sun and conserve some energy. My two little sun worshippers are still seeking out the sun puddles in the house. Like mother, like daughters!

Please keep your pets safe in this relentless heat.How are you and your cats coping?

  1. love that video every time I see it!! My two favorite things, cats and dolphins!

    Heat wave is going to be breaking here today (til Wed)….going into the 80s tomorrow!

    Stay cool!

    • It’s much better here today, too – only in the mid-90’s. More typical DC summer weather and not nearly as extreme as the last couple of days. I think it’ll be a while before we see 80s here again.
