The Look

This is Abby. This is Abby this afternoon. This is Abby stretched out in the open window in our bathroom on the second floor. Outside it was about 95 F (35 C). Inside it was about 85 F (29 C). Abby was so hot and so fed up with the heat and humidity that she didn’t even race away when I brought out the camera. Instead, she just rolled her head in my direction and gave me the look.

It’s O.K. Abby. I totally, completely understand how you feel. No. I’m not anthropomorphizing. I really, totally, completely get that look. Just ask Chuck. He’s seen that look more and more as this heat wave has gone on. He really, totally, completely gets that look too!

Hi All -
I love the collective "Aaaws"!
Abby is so difficult to photograph, both because of her personality and her coloration!
Glad you liked the photo. I'm sure Abby is secretly pleased!

P.S. I do so envy your central air Gail. Enjoy it!!!

She's beautiful!! Love the look and I'm sure the cats, Chuck & you are all really relieved to have finally been cooled off a bit!!

Now, wish it would warm up a bit this side...

What a cute kitty! She is beautiful. I love the expression on her face. I totally get it. Been there. Glad to hear the heat has finally broken for you guys.

Thanks Sue & Tiffany!
It may be an aftereffect of the heat, but I'd swear I heard Abby mumbling about getting herself an agent!
What have I unleashed? LOL!

A look well known to all cat lovers, the "why don't you turn down the heat?" look. Poor furrygirl, poor you. I totally understand, sympathies.

Hi DMM -
Abby may have not felt well for a few days, but I'm sure all the sympathy and attention has gotten her back in fine fettle!

Hi Carrie -
Poor Pedro! Do tell him Cassie and Abby send him their best!
