Sweltering Saturday

The day started off well enough. Here I was napping in the morning sun at 6am.....


By 9.30am the temperature has gone up to 86F. I retreated into the house for a rest.



At 2.30pm the thermometer hit 105F and rising, time to go into the cooler interior.



On days like this, the only thing a kitty can do is to lick ice water and munch on cooled ham bits. Definitely far too hot for snuggling of any sort!
Maybe the kitties in the northern hemisphere could send some of their chilly wind over and we would all be happy.

Oh dear, we are hanging out for the 2nd of February when we are FINALLY getting two of those thingies up on the walls with heating/cooling.

It has been either broiling or freezing here for 11 years, mom says.

We hear you, sistah! Days like this are for laying down as quietly and still as possible. We hope you're having a cooler evening!

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

Enjoy your warmth! Really.

Believe me you don't want any of our -30 morning!

Purrs Goldie

I may teleport over for a little broil later.

We will check how much this is in Celsius, but it sounds hot. And yet, you look so cool, Momo!

Oh my maybe we could switch some of our coldies for your warmies. Rosie gets very cold and sits under blankets most of the day.

Zoolatry said...

We can send you some of our "cold" from Florida... but you
have to promise to send it back to us next August, cause we know we will want it then!
Tell SS to fan you...

Alasandra said...

Well we tried sending you our cold and it partly worked. The cold went somewhere. It was a nice 70F yesterday.

Please stay cool and nibble lots on the ham. ~S,S & C

Wow!!! 105 is way too hot. We don't like the cold, but we think we would like that much hot even less.
You must feel very hot with all your floof. We hope you can find a nice cool and shady spot.

The Island Cats said...

If we sent you some of our cold and you sent us some of your hot...we'd all be happy!

Cory said...

We were all just whining about how cold it is...but sweltering hot is just as bad in it's own way since both extremes keep you indoors which is not nearly as much fun as being in your garden.

105??????? Yikes,that IS hot!! Too hot for kitties! I'll get Mom to send you some snow , K?
Hope there is a cool spot inside your home:)

We have -30 here this morning. Although we hate the cold we aren't a fan of the hot either. At least when its cold you can cuddle under a blanket but when its hot its not like you can take off our fur coats. We'll give you some cold if you give us some heat. We'd be happy with a nice 70. Perfect to go outside.

You know it never gets that hot here in summer, we complain if our temps reach 90. I am sending you a cold winter breeze, close your eyes here it comes.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Mom sez dat we could mix our 2 degrees wif yoor 105 and make it warm but not to hot and effuryone would be happy. To bad it don't work like dat hey Momo?

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Well if we could add our frigid temps to your hot ones we'd have the perfect day wouldn't we?

Isis said...

naps make the world go round!

Everycat said...

You are looking well Momo, and very smiley in that last picture. I will send the cold wind and rain your way if you like and you can send us some of your roasty temperatures. Have you ever asked your Mum to run an icecube down your back?

Derby said...

I will be happy to trade you some of our ice, snow and cold temps for some more warmth.

The Tower Hill Mob said...

Could we please have some of your sweltering?
It will be about 5 degrees F here tonight...

The Tower Hill Mob said...

P.S. What a beautiful dilute calico girl, just like Cupcake!

Sweet Praline said...

I must agree with the Zoolatry kitties. I will happily send you some of our cold weather, but I want it back in August when it is in the 100s here.

Fin said...

The weather is really nice here, come on over.

Christine and FAZ said...

105 - Yikes - I hope it's cooled down a bit now. The girl human says that's one of the reasons she doesn't live in Queensland anymore. She prefers the YouKay even with all the rain. FAZ

We can't believe you have warm weather. It's so unfair, but you look nice, so we wont be (real) jealous.
