Steaming Sunday

Kitties, you might be conned into believing that I live in Sydney but the truth is that I live in an oven. It has been so hot lately!!!!! 100F for days on end and just as you think you can breath again, the heat wave returns, as do the rain and floods elsewhere in Australia.

Due to my recent illness, I have not been going out to the garden much. Thanks +++++ to the power of purrs and tail wags around the globe, I am much better now and am also eating a little more. Drinking is another story - I just don't.




My kidney problem persists and the vet says SS has to be on the alert for my fluid status, especially on hot days when I am not drinking. So today is one of those days when it was already over 90F by 10am. Our little house has no a/c and it can be as hot inside as it is out by mid-afternoon.

Sweet Momo, I worry about you too. You really need a nice big drink or Mom will have to get a dropper!

The Island Cats said...

Momo, we sure hope it gets cooler for you!! And we're glad you are doing better...we continue to purr for you!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Oh our purrs to you! Stay cool and drink plenty of fluids!

Fin said...

Maybe you should try it right from the faucet?

Cory said...

Grete has offered up her tail to wag over you to cool you off!

If that fails you can teleport over here where it's nice and cool.

Momo,

I know how you feel in the hot hot day " It like in the oven " I didn't have problem with drinking. Normally, I drink a lot after breakfast and dinner but in the hot day, my dad always cool me down by putt the damp cloth on top of my body. I think you should try. When your body cold down, you will feel like drinking.

I purrs for you to drink lot of water Momo.

I don't know how you and your humans can stand the heat with no air conditioning! Or how you can not feel like drinking when the temperature is so high! Like many other kitties, I am continuing to purr for you. Plus I am hoping you get some cooler weather soon!

Oh dear, that is simply extremely hot! We are sending purrs your way that the heat waves stop.

A vet tech taught our Mom how to give sub-Q fluids when Clyde was ill. She says it is not hard if you have a helper, and it reduces stress on the kitteh by avoiding a trip to the v-e-t.

Most of us like to drink running water, so we get a lot of use from our fountain.

Purrs,
Padre, Panda Bear, Meerkat, Cookie, and Caramel (& fosters Sunny and Sky)

Derby, Ducky said...

Try to stay cool and drink Momo. We wish we could send you some of our colder weather to cool you down.

meowmeowmans said...

We are glad you are doing so much better, Momo, but you really do need to drink lots of fluids, especially in the hots. Purrs, prayers and hugs to you, friends.

Au and Target said...

Au is eating and is on a new wonder drug trial so we are over the moon! Blogging about the drug from tomorrow onwards.

Kate (Pablo's mum) said...

You need to come and live down here with us... or at least visit... it snowed on Mt Wellington today. Max temp: 16C. Pablo would have been appalled. Appalled.

Good luck with your drinking problem ;) (Seriously, do try and drink a bit.)
