Tuesday with Salem

Hi there, Kitties!
It is I, Salem.
Today I'll be your host and tell you how we Lounge Kats beat the heat.
It's been unusally cold here in Las Vegas this Spring. Usually the cold blowey thing is on full time by now.
But yesterday we had a nice hot day and it was toasty warm on our Catio--which faces West:

Pay no attention to the bikini lady...this is Daddy's thermometer.

And we were starting to get a little warm outside!

Hot Kat!

When this happens, we come inside and lay down where it's cool. The ceramic tile is an even cooler option for any Super-Heated Cats, but that doesn't happen until it gets even hotter.
So I decided to flop on the carpet.

Tile or Carpet?

Is it OK to be a little bit vain? I think I have a pretty tummy. I like my little black belt that holds the two sides of my black furs together. If I didn't have it I might lose my little fur suit!

Tomorrow it's supposed to be colder again. But before you know it we'll be in and out all day, toasting on the Catio and cooling on the tile. I can hardly wait!
Have a Happy Tuesday, Kitties!
XX Salem, spokescat, Lounge Kats


  1. You have the best of both worlds!

  2. I wish we had some of that heat here Salem! We woke up this morning to some crunchy frost!!

  3. Oh Salem!!

    You have the prettiest tummy with your black belt holding all your black furrs together!! How lovely!!!!

    And me and Charlie are glad you can cool down and heat up as and when you please!

    Take care

  4. Oh Salem what a great explanation of your weather and where the heat comes from. The thermometer is terrific.
    But we especially like your black belt that holds your black shirt on. That is just purrfect. Great pictures. Hope you have a super Tues.

  5. Yes, very lovely tummy!!

    Sending you warmth on a cold day, and breeze on a hottie day!

    P:S: Lucky says he likey the bikini girl! Hahahah

  6. You kitties have got the life! We think we should come visit!

  7. Humans could learn a lot from Cats. We are extremely intelligent when it comes to things like this.

  8. That's a very unique (and charming!) little black belt that holds your furs together!

    You look like you have excellent measures in place to keep with the heat.

  9. Yes, you have an extremely pretty tummy! And you know how to be cool and hot.

  10. Hi Salem...we too love your two part white tummy!!! Cool thoughts coming your way....we know you have very hot days out your way.
    Madi and Mom

  11. We like your belt! We don't get much hot weather here but when we do, we flop on the kitchen floor.

  12. Y'all are sure looking great and I hope your weather gets to be just right for you!

  13. What a wonderful tutorial you gave, Salem.....and yes, you have a very pretty tummy!!!

  14. Ah if only I lived some place with warm tiles to hang out on for the summer.. but I don't.

  15. Your little fur suit is very elegant! We like to lay on the cool tiles in the summertime, too.

  16. We love yoor little belt holding your fur suit on...heehee
    We want to come and play on da catio wif yoo.

  17. Such an adorable tummy, Salem=we like your little black belt too!...Stay cool sweetie...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  18. We love that tummy shot and mom wanted to snorgle it!

  19. love your little fursuit, Salem! can't wait to see pictures of you all flopped down on the tile.

  20. Salem, we really like your black belt, too! Does that mean you know karate?

    Cool tiles sounds like a good idea -- we just got new tiles in one area of our house over the winter, so we'll get to try it out this hot Texas summer!

    Purrs and hugs,
    The Kitty Krew

  21. Salem you did a great job hosting today's blog.
    100 degrees seems very hot. If it was that hot here cold tiles would be the right place to be. Thank Goddness it never really get that warm here.

  22. We are happier when it is warmer. TBT likes it colder. So, since we cant reach the thermostaterator, we have ta curl up ta stay comfy. Or sit on his lap...

  23. Have I said how fun it is to finally have another vegas cat blogger!

  24. Oh Salem, your tummy is irresistible! It should be illegal to display such snorgle-ability on the Interwebz!

  25. Soooo, that's where our warm sunny spring has gone! This is the wettest, coldest spring we can remember...YUCK!!!!=^Y^=

  26. We loved seeing those photos - we felt warm just reading it (it's winter here now...)
    Your tummy is sooo pretty! You're very stylish Salem!
    Purrs, Keiko Kenji & Pricilla

  27. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty Horde wants to know if Salem knows Cat Fu!!


Oh Boy...this is gonna be GREAT!
