Sunday Selfies!


It’s That Time Again! 

Sunday Selfies Blog Hop!

Hosted by The Cat On My Head

Sunday is Easy Peasy for me and Mom because all I have to do is stay still long enough to snap a picture of myself and that’s that – we post it – we join the hop and then we spend the day visiting other “Hoppers” who have done the same thing.   It’s a fabulously fun hop – and you should join up at The Cat On My Head (click their badge below and be transported there!) OR at the very least go there and visit the links – see for yourself how many fantabulous friends post their selfies on Sundays!


I look like I’m surrounded by ice cubes!  Well, the heat index yesterday was 109 – EEEK!  

Visit The Cat on My Head and see for yourself how the rest of us are keeping cool (and cute)!

Happy Sunday



Heat Wave Continues…..


Jeepers……I told you we were supposed to have a hot day but who knew it would be hotter than hot?  Friday it was way over 100 degrees and even in the shade it was unbearable.   I did just what I said I was gonna do – stayed inside and dreamed of cooler weather:

Sammy Following Mom's Path in The Snow

Ahhh…nice cold SNOW…!

Late in the afternoon my Dad went down to the mailbox to get the mail and when he got back up the driveway he sat down on the front porch to read the newspaper.   He saw me at the door looking out and opened it to see if I wanted to come out on the porch.  All it took was about five seconds for that heat to hit me and I said “Thanks but no thanks Pop!” and headed back into the living room and my tissue collection.

Nice and cool under my tissue tent…..

I feel really sorry for the animals who don’t have shelter in this kind of heat and I don’t just mean around here – EVERYWHERE!   I also know lots of my friends and their humans don’t have air-conditioning and when it’s over 100 degrees, it’s hard to imagine NOT having it.   Our feral visitor “Stevie” stayed cool yesterday – she spent time in the shade lying on the cool grass….and Mom filled up her water bowl on the front porch twice – she even put an ice cube in it to keep the water cold! 

Stevie keeping cool in the grass!

I guess Mom will be heading out in the backyard any minute now to get the gardens watered before it starts heating up for the day.  I’m also sure she will offer to let me follow her out – because she usually does and I watch her water all the plants and the deck boxes then coil the hose back up (my favorite part…watching the hose!) and finally come back inside.  But this morning, I’m gonna PASS on going out with her.  I’ll watch her from inside the basement where it’s nice and cool.  See?  It’s even too hot for me to be COMPANIONABLE these past few days!  I hope it cools off soon…….I do like gardening with Mom in the mornings…………. 😦

Hope you have a COOL Saturday….either inside or out! 😀

Kitty Hugs, Sammy


The Heat Is On!


OK….it’s just plain WEIRD – the weather that is.  People from all across the country and in fact OTHER countries are remarking on how different their weather is and has been……I’m one of them!!!  Today the weather guy said our high will be (get this…brace yourselves) EIGHTY-SIX !!!  Yes that’s what I said….! 

I thought I’d share a photo that I’ve had on my blog before of my cousin Toby.  Toby’s a shih tsu who lives with his sister Mollye up on top of a mountain in West Virginia with my Aunt Carol.  Toby knows how to cool off on a HOT day.

Toby Keepin' Cool !!

Toby just popped himself into the little pond Aunt Carol had in her backyard and lay on his belly and got cooled down. Looks pretty comfy to me…….and I have a feeling that before the day is out lotsa folks around here will wish they had a pond to cool off in – ‘cept for the fishies of course because they’re already IN a pond and already nice and cool!  It’s Friday………..or because it’s gonna be pretty hot maybe I should say it’s FRYday????  (tee hee) Sammy
