Mama, it's HOT

I have been taking lots of naps. It was 96 today. Blaagghh. And mama was out in it, too. She said she opened one door downtown and the heat just blasted her, and it was like that everywhere every time she left a cool place. She had lots of places to walk, and even though she carried a liter bottle of water with her, it didn't even last and she had to get even more for the way home.

She gotted the card for food, but it hasn't been activated yet. They wouldn't help her with the medical stuff either. She has to give them stuff to verify everything is what she says. So she camed home in the heat with nothing to show for it. And I think more information to look up and give to them....

Anyway, we are back in the heat. I think all the feet and tail wagging gaved us a little breeze, but come on. We need every and efurry one to do this so that the whole country cools down. The weather ladybean here says we have had so far 13 or 14 days of this over 90F, which is the average for the whole summer, and we will have this hot weather until next week at least. We had a really bad storm this afternoon which caused a lot of problems (of course, mama loves to sleep during thunderstorms, and took a nappie with me this afternoon through the storm).

Animals and beans are suffering and even dying, so be very careful! Drink lots of water. Try to stay out of the sun( in this heat, it is just stupid). Eat lightly several times a day (hmm. We do that anyway). Don't do strenuous stuff (lots of naps). Go to somewhere cool (like in front of a fan, if nothing else). Get your mama to give you a cold towel or something.

Take care of the little ones and the elderly and sick. Furry ones AND beans.

Winter is coming. But many many naps away!

Your poor Momma, hafing to walk all ofurr in the heat. our mommy hadded to do that when they lived in fill-a-dell-fia (wif Trixie and Norton and Ralphie) and they didn't has air conditioning eifurr and no car and it was ofurr 100 for almost a monf at a time. She used to put on old shorts and a t-shirt and stand in the cool shower wif the kitties to cool them all off.

Momma worries about Mistrie out in the heat, but she snoozes under the hemlock trees all day.

We sure do hope things improve for your Momma real soon!

Maybe if we all take lots and lots of naps cool weather will come quicker. Let's try it out and see. Stay cool as you can in the meantime Brandi and Brandi's Mom!

NO! Not winter. Then we're too cold and we can't sit out on our porch. How about a nice crisp fall day? A little sun? A gentle breeze? Still too many naps away, but hang in there ... Maybe Scout had the right idea and we should all wave our feet?

The heat is something horrible. When my human pet came back home today, she said she hadn't even missed the heat while being in Pittsburgh. The humidity is what makes it the worst. I am so glad to be inside personally.
