It finally got hot here. I think we were the last kitties in the U.S. to have summer. We were so hot today that we all just sprawled on the rug. We didn’t feel like moving, even though we have a bunch of things to do — toys to review, my new book to promote, etc.
You are probably wondering what that thing is by my head. It’s a plastic rat. I don’t know where it came from originally. I guess it got unearthed when my human was moving stuff to make room for the cabinet. Boodie probably dragged it out.
Even though it squeaks, it’s not much of a cat toy. Which is just as well. I am too hot to play.
Besides, it is really, really ugly.
I think it is slightly evil. So I’d better keep and eye, and a paw, on it.
I love the picture of everyone crashed because of the heat. I gotta say, though, that is one ugly rat. You say that’s a cat toy?
I absolutely love that first photo! All of them sprawled out like that!
And I ABSOLUTELY love your rug. Woooo!
The only thing good about that rat toy is the tail. It’s all about the tail anyway.
We agree……..that is one UGLY rat! As for the heat, welcome to our hot world. It’s boiling here and Alice STILL wants to snuggle!
The Island Cats says
That rat is ugly…but you better keep an eye on him. Never trust a rat….
Stay cool if you can. We gots the hots here too.
Eric and Flynn says
That rat has got an evil eye. Our summer has gone away again. We have had torrential rain all day.
The heat sure messes up good play time doesn’t it? Hope you all stay cool and keep an eye on that rat Sparkle!
That is too bad the hear got to you. That mouse is very ugly, we have to agree with you. We brought Mom a real mouse this morning but it was deaded. We brought it up on the porch just for her. For some reason she didn’t like it.
Have a great day.
Katnip Lounge says
That sure is an ugly rat…we would probably drag it off and pee on it.
You guys are just precious sprawled out on that rug together…That is an ugly rat and it’s a good thing you’re keeping a paw on it, Sparkle…Stay cool, sweet friends…kisses beautiful girls…Calle, Halle, Sukki
You’re right – that is one ugly toy!
Amy & The House of Cats says
We got the hots back here today too (the really hots that is – it was only kinda hots yesterday). We think you are smart to relax when it is hot. But we do think you need to keep an eye on that rat – he is a little creepy so he cannot be trusted!
Raymond and Busby says
We’re going to have the hots here today too. No rats though!
Toby & Leia says
Hmm…. we think you should definitely keep an eye on it. Very ebil looking, indeed.
Sweet Praline says
Yes, it’s too hot to do anything!
We just got the heat too. Yesterday was brutal with 90 degree temps and 78% humidity which is like the Philippines. Of course it sparked off all kinds of storms and tornadoes. That rat looks very evil much better than my dead things though.
You guys do look like you’re melting!! You need to come here. totally freezing.
Fuzzy Tales says
Interesting new “toy” you have there, Sparkle. We can see how it wouldn’t overly appeal to you. You’re smart to keep a paw on it, just in case it decides to do something nasty!
Stay cool and well-hydrated!
