Baby kitty at the humane society where I volunteer sat all over me this afternoon, purring and sleeping. His name is Jazz, he's new, arrived there 2 days ago, and is a bit of a scaredy cat so I have to calm him down a bit.



I'm not going to be able to get a cat for a couple years probably...yay college and being away at college But I am going to be at the humane society with the kittens on the weekends and some weekdays.


More shelterkitties

A group of cats is called a clowder.

A clowder of cats.

How do you help your kitties beat the heat? We're without A/C at the moment and sheldon acts like he's going to melt.

I'm glad you're doing that, Katie--it's good for the animals, and you get some Fuzz-Therapy!

Sorta-kinda related: a group of baboons is called a "congress"--a congress of baboons. Somehow, that seems appropriate!

When it's really hot here, I usually put some ice cubes in Miep's water. She likes that. Or, stupid as it sounds, give her some ice cream. It may not be healthy, but it cools her off.

Isidore will sleep in front of a fan or directly under the ceiling fan (I have some boxes stacked up under one so he can get a good breeze). He's a big cat with long fur, so he feels the heat more than the others.

Here's a pic of him in front of a fan (and laying on my messy desk area....)



and here's one of him on is "pedestal" directly under the ceiling fan:

As suggensted in an earlier post, ice cubes in the water bowl or fountain is a good way.

pull down the shades over your windows and do have fans going so the air is moving and there is some kind of breeze.

also, leave your closet door open as its usually dark and cool in the back corners of most closets. Keto likes to hang out in dark corners of the house on really hot days, even when we do have the AC going.

vet time for Wesley tomorrow. He'll do great getting into the carrier, will cry hysterically for the 5 minute drive, purr like crazy for the vet even while she's giving him his shots, and then will cry hysterically all the way home. He'll be fine but I'm not so sure I will be until it's done and over I hate this stuff....
