We're right in the throes of another record heat wave and I'm not likin' it one bit! This is the third one this summer which all adds up to some very weird and spooky weather patterns.
Last night was so hot that we couldn't even stand to be in the summer bedroom with two fans! My husband's Chiropractic office is in the front of our house and luckily, it does have air conditioning. So there we were, dragging a foam mattress from the garage to the front treatment room, hoping no one would know we were in there.
As anyone with cats will know, they can't stand it when the least little thing in their environment changes, even if it's a small rearrangement of furniture. Well, they came in and immediately knew something was up. I could read in their faces words like, "What the heck are you guys doing in this part of the house at night?!" Socks gingerly placed one foot on the foam and quickly retracted it, too afraid to venture onto the unfamiliar spongy carpet! Mooky recognized its smell from the garage and she unhesitatingly commenced to prance all around on it. She probably has napped on it several times and we are lucky she did not decide to mark her territory in the ususal feline fashion!
After their investigation was complete, kitties finally both settled down, one on a table and the other in a chair in our new room. Was a cosy scene. Well guess what girls? We're doin' it again tonight as we have seen the temperature soar to ridiculous readings comparable to 45 degrees Celsius!
We haven't resorted to these sleeping quarters for many years and I don't seem to recall it contributing to such sore back muscles upon awakening back then for some odd reason!!
Mother of Invention, making a mental note to call my Chiropractor FIRST thing in the morning!!
