this hot this early ... I'm only 30, but I remember when I was
younger, the really hot weather didn't start til we all had to go
back to school, towards the end of Jan / start of February.
The cool change came through around 2pm Tuesday, but it was only
around 10pm Wednesday that the house really cooled down -- certainly
when the BoM (Bureau of Meteorology) said that it was 17 outside,
inside my thermometer was still reading over 30!
Even worse ... Tuesday afternoon I let them all out into the
backyard, because it was so much better out than in, but had to pop
in for a phone call ... came out half an hour later to find a dead
pigeon on the back doorstep! The LAST thing they needed was more
They ran around a lot outside after the change, attacking their
scratching post and a giant (3x size) tennis ball that they love to
grip with their front hands and kick the *** out of! And today
they've been just darlings!
Friday and Saturday are going to be hot again, but at least it'll be
cool overnight, so the house won't be such a furnace!
Anyway, the point to this story is ... *touch wood* we all came
through the other side of the heatwave relatively unscathed!
Just wanted to share some good news!
Take care all,
Catherine, Kitty (Mum), Buttons-Angel, Patch, Claude & Tuppenny.
