You Know It’s Hot When the Cat Pants

We are in the middle of a heat wave in New York City and tonight my daughter said to me, “Look, Mommy, Tippi is panting!”

Sure enough, Tippi, our 11-month old tuxedo kitten, was panting like a dog. Poor kitty! I have been keeping a close eye on her and trying to get her drink more water.

Tippi is forever chic in black & white.

Tippi and I hope you are staying cool wherever you are.

I hope Tippi finds air conditioning soon!

We're strong believers in a/c, as is our cat. Today she was outside for a long time, and there's a patch of fur falling off in reaction—something I see a lot in our strays.

I love cooler weather! My cat does too. :)

Was just in NYC last week but we were lucky with a little bit of cool. Always hot here in Florida!!

Our heatwave is gone - it's pretty cool here in Vienna. Much too cool for end of June. But hey, we still have July and August... :-)
Keep cool and have a very HAPPY weekend! :-) xo

I'm in the city in my cool pent house room. Yay for upgrades and boo to heat and humidity. Left kitty upstate and have also been encouraging her to stay off the porch as we had same weather.

What an adorable kitty! And I'm not one of those who says *every* cat is adorable; I'm not easily impressed. Stay cool! We're at a very pleasant low 70s here in northern WI, but we'll be in muggy 90+ any day now.
