Mancat Monday

Dog Days of Summer

Its that horrid, hot, humid time of year, the dog days of summer.  They're uncomfortable and sticky, no one would ever think to name such weather after a cat.  We'd be the sweet, cool days of autumn or the balmy, deliciously warm days of spring.

During the really hot days of summer I prefer cool places, like the comfort of the Chewy box to watching Bird TV.

How do you like to spend the hot summer days?

Y'know, it isn't real hot here. We guess the dog days haven't come yet. So we got the windows opened and cool breezes are coming in. It feels good! Stay cool, guys!

We like to lay on the cool tile in the dark bedrooms...sorta like furry land mines.

Julia Williams said...

Yeah, the dog days are no fun! My kitties like to lay on their cat tree that is by a window, and sometimes there is a nice breeze. When that fails, they hog the fan!

Definitely inside under the AC for us! No catio time until o'dark thirty!

We just follow Mommy around coz she HATES the hot and humid weather and it's bound to be cool whether SHE is. MOL.

We are SO lucky this year - we have been having a gorgeous summer with mild weather and low humidity, just right for sun puddle napping and play! Of course, it is only the beginning of August. I would not be surprised to see some triple-digit weather sometime in the next few weeks.

Thankfully we're having a rather cool summer this year! Otherwise we'd be trying to find some place warm as our daddy keeps the air conditioner on so hard that we freeze!

Marg said...

We like to spend the hot days either in the AC or outside in the nice shade. It is cool in the shade. Hope you all have a great week.

Well Carl, mom won't let me out so I'm pretty comfprtable in here. Bit looking at YOU is making me a bit warm.

Tell mom that MY mom is STILL going back to that bloggie about OO digging. The dialogue was perfect with the pictures and I know she still smiles every time she looks at it. It's a classic.

We spend the hot days wondering why our windows aren't open for whiffie time!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We like to take the sun in the morning and then later in the afternoon - when it gets too hot which isn't too often here we take a nap after lunch.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Father Tom said...

We've been keeping pretty cool now in our new home in Maryland..Anastasia likes to curl up; me, Tinker, I like to stretch out and keep my furs ventilated :)

Just wanted to say hello and thank you so much for your comforting words for all of us when we lost Tom. It was so kind of you to stop by.

Mom Julie, Tinker, Angel Tom, Mittens and Anastasia xx

Allie: well, not to tell tales out of SCHOOL or anything, but some mancats around here have taken to trying to swipe Mother's ice cream. Scandalous, i know!

colehauscats said...

We melt all over the counters and tables here. Kind of like cheese melts but with fur. MOL! Stay cool! Purrs...

Tails from the Foster Kittens said...

:) Got to love a good Chewy box!!

Sparky Spitfire said...

Carl, come lay in the cool grass wif me and let's eat some crickets. always cools me down.

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

We like to hang out in the bedroom. That room doesn't have many windows, so it's dim and cool on hot summer afternoons.

Kitties Blue said...

We always spend them sprawled on our backs with our paws waving in the air so that if a breeze happens to come by, we can feel it on our tummy furs. Try to stay cool efurrybuddy. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
