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!

Lucy, tiles are the best for hot summers. All my cats loved them.
Amazing that Shadow was able to smell a well seal cookie. I had a cat that loved that kind of cookies so my mother share them.

Hi Lucy
Tiles are great to lie on in the hot weather you should ask your humans to make you your very own icy pole. We get them every summer there our favourite hot weather treat. From Milo & Jet
