      I live in Melbourne Victoria (Australia), and it's not meant to get
      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.
