Mancat Monday: It’s Too Darn Hot Miscellany

Brian's Home. Adopt cats, we deserve it! Dang, it’s just too dang hot here, and we’re inside kitties.  When it’s hot, it’s hot, and even though we’re kitties with air conditioning, believe me, we can tell the difference.  It’s been close to 100ºF here for days in a row and one day it did hit 100.

It’s been way to hot to try any feral kitten trapping.  We think only 2 of the original 5 kittens made it, at least that’s all we’ve seen.  So, we’re hoping it cools down some so we can get these two before they get too big and too feral.  Even most of our older ferals haven’t been around too much.

Dad has been making sure that the ferals have plenty of fresh water in multiple locations and he has been changing it out several times each day.  It’s been tough keeping the feral feeding station clean as the ants have been very determined to take part in meal time.  Dad keeps the food bowls in a moat of water which keeps the evil ants away, but they sure go after any wee bit of food that drops along the way.

That’s it for today, I hope you all have a super week!  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

p.s.  Our dear friend Hilary from has moved from the beach into their new home.  While all of this was going on her publisher went out of business.  To jump start her self-publishing business Hilary is offering a freebie and a sale.  If you’ve not read either, here’s your chance, they are both terrific books!

How awful for the ferals – at least indoor kitties have some air conditioning to cut through the heat.

Gosh, that’s hot! We have been lucky so far this summer and have avoided the super hot temps. I know those pesky ants are a problem with feral feeding stations, but it sounds like your dad has a great plan.

We hope it cools down a little for you soon. We can imagine that it is a struggle to feed the ferals when it is so hot and all the bugs are out.

It has been way too hot and some more 98 etc. coming again this week. My outside cats all disappear during the day. I am sure they are staying in some shade. I am so sorry some of the kittens are gone . I hope you can catch the other two. Also my outside cats don’t eat very much during this hot weather.
You all stay as cool as you can.

We don’t like the hots, and we have air conditioner too! Hope you have luck getting those kittens!

Feral cats love a very harsh life sometimes and weather is not their friend in many places. Paw pats to your Dad and Mom for caring so much.

We know all about the hots Brian!!! *whew* and we have a lot of summer still left!

Vocês tem muita sorte de estar dentro de casa no conforto do ar condicionado!
Tenho certeza que os ferals estão contentes com a água fresca que o seu papai coloca para eles.

I hope it gets cooler soon. It must be really awful if you also have high humidity. Hopefully you can wrangle up the feral kitties and get them taken care of.

We think of how hard it is for the ferals out in the snow, but the heat is just as bad, and maybe harder to escape!

We know what ya mean about the HOTS! We go outside, and it is starting to get really hot outside. The tricky part is our deck. TBT had a new one put up 2 years ago and the fake wood (along with a big tree removed that puts more sun on the deck) really heats it up. We try ta walk in any shaded spot. So we spend more time unner the shade of the deck on the cooler ground. TBT put down some outdoor carpet in paths ta help us off the deck. And he says this will last… Read more »

I feel you with the heat. Even though we have the a/c, I get sluggish when it’s very hot out and last time the a/c with really cranking, I had an asthma attack. Those poor little ferals.
