Just when I begin to think I am a complete heat wimp, my cats vindicate me. Both Abby and Cassie have been suddenly dropping to the floor and sprawling out in a variety of ungainly poses. They only do this when we are deep in the Three Hs: Hazy, Hot & Humid. Neither will allow me to photograph them in these undignified positions. But I don’t want to be photographed all flushed and “glowing” (read sweat pouring off me) as I fan myself incessantly, so I really can’t complain. Cassie likes to lay on her side, head up, legs in four directions, making herself as long as possible. Abby will lay flat on her stomach, legs in four directions or flat on her back, otter style, paws in the air. As if to provide me with further proof, they have even deigned to join us in the bedroom with the air conditioner and neither one likes the hum it makes.
Thank you girls. Mommy feels (irrationally) much cooler.
