  1. Harsh! I always like to chase Jamima around with a wet face washer. You know, like a real Mum! Using it on me first makes it an easier sell making sure I do her head and face last. And I utter the words; ” You will appreciate this more later!” What can you do?

    That’s sweet, I always worry about the cats getting too hot as they like to be out in the garden with us when it’s nice. Apparently, if you have a white cat, you have to put sun block on their ears.

    • Good tip for people with white cats!

      Good thing Effie isn’t white–she’d paw her ears and lick the stuff off.

        Can’t imagine trying to put sun block on my four…I struggle with my sons and they’re 16 and 21…

          The most I can do with my cats is brush them…I’d like to live a little longer and I have to sleep sometimes…by the way, I’ve just found out I’ve been nominated for the black cat blue sea award, do you fancy being one of my nominees? It’s 3 questions and 7 blogs of your choice…no pressure obviously!

          You have to answer 3 questions set by the person who nominated you, nominate seven other blogs (obviously let them know) and put 3 questions of your own to be answered by them. Also – nearly forgot – display the award banner thing on your blog and thank the person who nominated you. Thought the feline name of the award might appeal…

        • You’re very kind to bring it to my attention, Samantha; however, I don’t follow that many blogs, I’m not big on awards, and it’s honestly just not my kind of thing. . . .

          That’s ok, I thought I’d better check with you first! Thank you anyway 🙂

        • Thank you for your kind thought as well.

          Invoking the essence of 1 Corinthians 4:7, “What have I, that I have not received? To God alone the glory!” Somehow I am unable to fold an award to fit in that box.

    Can’t imagine needing A/C..central heating is more the norm here! When it is sunny here, my partner leaves some long grass at the bottom of the garden, so the cats have somewhere shady and cool. It’s near the pond so the frogs hide there too.

    • Good plan, the grasses. We’re in steppe country and we let the beautiful grasses grow tall. But they don’t really provide shade, because they’re too big and stiff for a cat to lie under. She does manage to creep under some grapevine foliage and get some shade, but her water heats up no matter what. We turn the dripper hoses on in the evening, and she thinks those are just heavenly!

    Poor Effie…first hot day here in ages and the cats are all just flopped out. Mind you, it’s far hotter there than it is here, hope it’s cooler in the evenings.

    • It always cools down, but sometimes not till sundown. Even with a cat’s body temperature being 103°, I’d worry about her out there with no shade. She’s sacked out on her window hammock now, and the A/C is keeping our house an extravagant 74° F.
