Selfies In The Heat…Of A Michigan Heat Wave

Selfies in the heat…yes, unpleasant with high humidity and pop up severe thunderstorms. At least we did not loose power like some folks north of here, nor get flooded out like some others. Our patio plants did get knocked about and some were pushed right over. A large ‘volunteer’ sunflower was ruined…so now the squirrels will have to try other means to access the bird feeders, MOL!

Several cities made cooling shelters available to peeps to hydrate and find relief from this high heat…one day the heat index (humid ex), was 110F. Oh MY:(Even at petcretary’s work they made iced water and fruit infused water available to all staff.

Earlier in the week, when it was not quite so hot, petcretary was able to borrow a lawn mower to get the grass cut. The mower we have is still in the shop, it must be a strange thing to have to order a new handle…Bwahahaha! So frustrating. Ours is a self propelled one, so it mostly takes about 3 – 3-1/2 hours to get the majority of the yard mowed. The borrowed one *she* used was a power mower, but not self propelled…and the handle was NOT padded. Sheesh, even our old fashioned reel mower has padding. Anypaws when she got done, her hands were sore to say the least, and even though she wore gardening gloves,  she had some blisters. One is about the size of a dime, right on her palm…so hard to keep covered, esp at her work. Someone said, why didn’t you call off work for a day or two? Um…really, for a blister?? So she got some good dressings from her work store room and she worked three days. She is tough. ha!

Well, hopefully this coming week the mower will be back with a good handle so then the chore will be easier. And hopefully this torrid weather will end.

I was all splayed out on the cooler parts of the carpet
When *she* interrupted me for selfie time she said…
I am too lazy for that in this heat, so this is all you’ll get, MOL!
Sheesh, she doesn’t even let the heat stop her…
Ok, that’s enough petcretary…Bye now,..
Sheesh, I am from Texas but I don’t much like this hot weather at all.
It makes my tongue hang out…
And it makes me hide my ears too, BOL!
My tongue is longer than yours,Dalton! BOL!
Really long…
I don’t like this hot weather much either, and I came from Texas too…
I think I will hide my ears too…then I can pant better…

We made a few cards:

Timmy Tomcat
Kinley & Brinley
Faraday
Even in the heat we are still hopping in the Sunday Selfies , hosted by The Kitties Blue.

The Kitties Blue aka The Cat On My Head, are celebrating their seventh year of blogging.! Wow, amazing!

  1. Stay cool, and away from strenuous activities that dont involve eating or drinking, MO
    Lots of excellent selfies this week, and anytime spent splayed out has to be a winner.

Thanks so much for our wonderful birthday card and we will go visit Faraday. Purrs that the heat is gone soon

  3. Glad you are all okay after the big thunderstorms – we read how they were furry dangerous in some places. Kudos on lawn mowing–not easy one-handled. You look lovely in your selfies, showing off some fine features. Stay cool, all–xoxo, Bibi & Meep

  4. You poor anipals. Maybe your humans could take you on vacation to a place that is nice and cool. When the doggy at my house gets hot, Mom puts a cold wet wash cloth across her forehead. Sometimes she’ll wipe down my furrs to cool me off, but I’d rather she didn’t, ’cause it means I’ll have to groom my furrs all over again. Tee hee hee. Winks.
