The sun is shining too bright, and it is too hot outside. Sometimes my skin gets wet between
my fur, my mouth stays dry, and my feet are wet. I don't like getting too hot. I can't cool
myself down with water because I don't like it.
Mommy tried to drown me with soapy water once, so I had to use my nails to hold on tight. I don’t think she loved me too much at that stage. Luckily, for her own safety, she didn't try it again!
On bright shiny days, I don't like to do much! I prefer to lay on cool sheets or the hardwood
floor or in the shade under the cave that is made from wood and grass. I don't have a lot of
energy when I get hot. Mommy always tries to keep me active, although I refuse to play. I
only want to sleep!
Mommy tries to play by wiggling my toys around. Firstly she attempts to play with the
mouse and birdie on a stick, but I don't have the energy to entertain her now. When she fails,
she brings out all my favorite toys. Even my small, black wire! But I'm not easily fooled, so I
just stare at her. I wonder if she thinks I am stupid!
I only get up to eat my delicious food to keep my tummy full and to drink lots of water with
those see-through cold cubes, when my mouth goes dry. I like to catch the cubes, but my
paws always get wet. Mommy always makes cold water and soft food on a sunny day. Oh,
and I will get up for those delicious fish-shaped treats!
The sheets on the bed keep me cold. I love to push my sharp nails through the sheets.
Sometimes I knead with my front paws or scratch the sheets with my back paws to get
comfortable. I don't cuddle with my humans when I get hot.
I usually sleep the whole day when it is hot and play outside when the moon rises, and it gets
dark and cool. I love to have lazy days! All I worry about is sleep, food, and water.
Sometimes the big black box with movement is on to keep me busy. I have a great life
I'm done talking meow. I'm getting lazy!
