I'm HOT (and not in a good way)

As you may or may not know, I live in south Texas. This year we've had the longest, hottest summer on record. Yeah, we do hit a couple 100s on most summers, but this year 101-107 (offical temps) for about 2.5 months straight. Of oourse out on the terrain it's even hotter. This, with a high humidity. People here who are pretty used to hot climates are suffering not to mention the animals. Some peoples have died and we're having recurring weather alert days for poor air quality~high ozone~because of the intense heat and humidity.

Which brings me to the jolly news at hand: last night our A/C went out. It's just over two years old (no more warrenty of course) but the intense summer must've burned our window unit out. Mom just started her new and minimum wage job and this is NO time for this box in the window to go out! *hisssss*

But it's September, you meow. Yes, yes it is. And I must admit it IS a bit cooler now. Today is predicted to be "only" 98-99 degrees. Which is better than 107 I must meow....but still, Ima fryin. It's about 87 inside right now with fans at 11am. I don't know what it will be when it gets hottest at 5pm. Mom goes to work in a bit and she'll be in A/C and she wishes she could take the cat family with her but she can't (we have a group of 7).

So, I'm HOT.

If you could send some purrrrs for cooler weather...maybe that we even have a Fall, I would really appreciate it. I know the power of the Paw and Purrr can work miracles but can it change the weather, mol?

Sweatfully Yours,
~Christopher

We are so sorry that the Cold air box died! Those things are necessary in Texas, most of the year! We are sending purrs for cooler weather. WE in North Texas are having bad air days too. That keeps Mom inside with us.

Oh Christopher, I am sorry that you are so hot. It is very hot here in south Florida, too, but you have us beat with those temperatures! I am wishing you will get some cooler weather any day now!

Christopher, I am so sorry to hear that you and your furblings are suffering in that awful heat! We kitties were pretty hot here for awhile because Daddy didn't want to run the A/C all the time (too expensive), but then he and Mommy bought an evaporative cooler for the window...It cost a lot less than an air conditioner, is much cheaper to run, and does a better job of cooling off the whole house. I hope you can get your A/C working again soon, or get an evaporative cooler. In the meantime, try staying close to the floor as hot air rises...Bathroom floors seem to work best for us kitties.

Christopher, our mama belongs to the Freecycle Network, and sometimes Freecycle peoples share stuffs like used air conditioners. D'you think your mama and dad might want to check it out? Couldn't hurt! Our mama said to "google it" or go to www.freecycle.org to get the url for the nearest network.

Hope you get cooler soon - heat and fur coats don't mix real well - we been missabul hot in Mew Jersey too!

Purrs,
Nina and Chloe

We are very sorry you are so hot. If you put a PayPay "Donate" button on your blog, kitties may be able to donate green papers to help your mom afford to get a window AC to keep you kitties cool.

Poor Christopher, I will happily swap weather with you. In the UK today it's cool and damp and I YEARN for some blistering sunshine.

We hope you get some cool weather soon.
