Hot! Hot! Hot!

Finally! After several years of cooler-than-average Junes (referred to as "Juneuary" around here in Seattle) we are back to normal summer temperatures. Yesterday it hit 88F and today so far it's 84F with high humidity. This is the sort of weather that makes me and the cats just want to lay around doing nothing. I did go for a walk today but as soon as I got home I went straight for the tile in front of the fireplace, which is the coolest spot in the house.

The cats have been laying around, too, although that's normal for them as they rarely ever seem to be awake. Here's Shadow snuggling up with MY jack toy:

And you know it's really hot when Slinky stretches out!

Mom ordered Chinese food last night from the New China Express, which she didn't share with me as she said it was WAY too spicy and hot for me. I think she was lying; I think she just wanted to have it all to herself! Apparently Shadow the cat thought so, too, as he had gotten on the kitchen counter in the middle of the night and stole the fortune cookie that was left over from mom’s dinner. It was in a plastic bag along with packets of soy sauce & paper napkins, but he tore the bag open (mom found that on the kitchen floor) and then carried the fortune cookie into the living room where he managed to eat about half of it. I guess he stopped when he got to the fortune inside, although the fortune looks a little chewed, BOL. He couldn’t get it out so must have given up after that.

 Mom got a good laugh when she read "Shadow's" 
fortune - just the fortune for a guilty cat!

Finally! An Updated Post

Mom has been quite remiss in keeping my bloggie updated! I told her she must start posting for me again so...

Friday there was an exciting package in the mail with my name on it! Then mom got a card with her name on it, too! Here's the exciting package:

Since it says "Royal Mail" on it, I knew it was from my love, Wiggle The Dog, in the UK. When mom opened it, inside were three little packages. Even the kitties got a package! Here's Shadow getting a closer look (at MY package, I might add...)

She tried to get a picture of me sniffing the package but I was too excited and wiggly for a good picture. Here is the package with wet spots from my licking:

Wiggle said I could open mine (mom's is for her birthday next week). Since I've had some runny poos this week and am on a strict diet of chicken and rice, I can only sniff my chewie sticks for now.

I was all a-blur with excitement!

Thank you, Wiggle! xx
