You know it’s too hot here when even my two cats can’t take the heat!
Normally Maisy, my 11-year-old grey & white tabby (she of the barometer ears which go blue when it is cold and red when it is warm) laps up the sun and can’t get enough of it. But today, it is a sweltering 27 celsius in the UK. That’s almost 81 Farenheit (I googled it, to be sure).
‘Not that hot!’ some of you may be saying! Well, it might not seem so but to us it is blisteringly hot because we just aren’t used to it here! I am actually having to use a hose pipe to water my precious garden. That’s serious!
What we have been used to, you see, are storms and floods and very unsummer-like weather indeed the past several years. Now we are being told that we are in for a heat wave! Well, we shall see.
Meanwhile, as I was saying, my cats aren’t quite sure what to make of it all.
So Maisy takes to being inside to cool off.
Eddie, on the other hand, is staying outside but takes shelter from the sun beneath a chair in the back garden.
As for me, I’m going outside now to have a little bask in the sun. Nothing like seizing the moment.
Summer is well and truly here…Let’s enjoy it while we can 🙂
