Maui here...Mommy has been giving me my anti-inappropriate pee-ing pills so I'm calm enough for a report!
Here at the Lounge it's been really really REALLY hot. The Catio is up to 110F (at least!) every afternoon. So we kitties have figured out some ways to stay cool.
You might notice that there are no leaves on the trees behind me. Daddy took this picture early last Spring, when it was cool outside and we lived on the catio 24/7. My furz are all fluffed out and thick to keep me warm in the cool air.
Here I am a couple of months ago. As the weather gets warmer we start moving down levels on the Catio and migrate to the North side of the house. I'm lounging in front of the french doors off of the Great Room here. The concrete stays cool up next to the house and I'm taking advantage of that. Feel free to admire my nice "grill-marks" on my hinders. And fronters.
Nowadays, since it's so dang hot Out, you'll most often find us Kats up against the foundation, belly or back pressed up to the cool concrete. We don't HAVE to be outside, but this is where we like to be. Mommy went along the house and moved stuff out of the way so we'd have a lot of space for squashing ourselves up against the house. Mommy's nice like that.
(Notice the Evil Dyson on the table in the left side of the picture? It's up in the air so we can't pee on it like it deserves.)
Of course, when the heat gets to be too much, we come inside, cool off on the tile, and then stake out some real estate on the Big Bed.
Kitties, this is the Bomb! When I was a feral Kat I NEVER had it this good. The indoor life is toe-curlingly great!
Happy Friday, Kitties!
XX Maui, reporting in a calm and cool manner...for now.
