Happy Tabby Tuesday with Simon:  It’s In the Air

tabby tuesday simon 01232024

Hey gang, how are y’all doin’ this mighty fine Tuesday???  As Seal said yesterday, it has been cold here but by Friday we’re gonna be in the 60s, hooray.  It’s not only been cold but it’s been dry and the air is filled with that nasty static electricity.  Let me tell you, it sure makes the furs stand up straight and they look kind of funny.  It only seems to make the furs stand up for us longer fur kitties so that means it doesn’t bother Kiki at all.  

Anywho, the Dad cleaned up the humidifiers and they already seems to be helping with the sticky situation.   We’ve got one in the living room, one in the dining room and one in the big bedroom.   You know how when those things run a mist comes out?  Well, Maxwell and Macy had never seen such a thing.  I think there were a bit fascinated by that.  They watched and watched, another new discovery for them. 

I do hope y’all get to warm up some too!  Have a fun Happy Tabby Tuesday.  Hey Pet Bloggers, don’t forget to leave your daily link over at The Cat Blogosphere for a chance to grab an entry for the end of the month drawing.  Okay, that’s it for now!  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!

We are the opposite here and the air is damp. Humidity is always high (98% today and high 90s forecast all week). We have to have dehumidifiers to take some of the moisture out or we will have damp on the walls and windows causing mould.
I hope you can get your fur under control, Simon.

Hi Simon! We will have a 60 degree day on Friday too and I’m pretty excited about that! The snow should be washed away by then from the rain and I can explore my yard with Mom or Dad again. Too bad WE aren’t in charge of the weather isn’t it!

Hugs, Teddy

Are humidity is outside this morning in the form of freezing rain. But inside it’s so dry that when I give Precious her kiss on the nose we sparkle. I know it’s going to happen every time, but thank goodness she still thinks getting a kiss is worth it.

We don’t get the static stuff here, but i do remember it from Living in Savannah. I also did not know that the steamy things would help with that or that Cats suffer from static in their furs. wow! this was a teaching post today. You look amazing! weather guy is talking as I type and we are going to 81 today and 3 more days. from cold to HOT overnight. the heat is running now, and by night we may need AC…

We could use some more humidity here too. The below zero cold has the furnace running all the time and it dries out the air. Bailie has head furs standing on end from it! Glad your humidifiers are working.

Boy. It was like summer here with the temp having risen to a high of 30. Mom wishes she had a humidifier too. At least she got an air puridier!

Oh yes, static!
Simon, The Hubby put out a humidifier with a stream of steam, and Chili Bruce is fascinated by that machine.

Weathering the weather: a constant conundrum, turn the heat on. No. Turn it off. Wear a heavy coat ‘n’ mittens. Oh no. Just a light jacket. Kitty fur static, yes … let’s not do nose kisses June, the sparks will fly, oh my!

Charlee: “Ooh, maybe we need some of those humidifier things here. We get static electricity here when the air is dry. I am not a fan of getting little shocks to the nose!”
Chaplin: “Well it’s going to be a while before we dry out after this last four days of storms, at least …”

Simon that was a great and complete update! Today it is stormy and rainy again. No sunpuddles for our kitties but warm down duvets with flannel duvet covers that they all LOVE.

Mornin’, Simon – You look quite comfy, without a care in the world, but of course the static electricity is a concern for longer-haired kitties. Are you explaining things to Maxwell and Macy, who are still making new discoveries.

Lookin’ good, Simon, even with a little static in your furs! But we don’t like the cold weather either, we are happy to see it go, too!

I think your fur is purrfect. Our weather is pretty mild here. I’m happy about that. I hope you get some warm soon.

Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. Scritches all around and my best to your peeps. ♥

Humidifiers, what a good idea! I used to use them all the time and plum forgot I had them. Thanks Simon!

Static is awful. Glad your dad found a way to get rid of it.

I don’t like static electricity – especially when you get a scary ouchie poke.

It has warmed up here a bit too..which is a nice change. But we have rain again :-/

We are looking forward to warmer weather, too. But there is going to be rain most of the week. Always something to complain about 😸

Our furnace has a humidifier and one winter it got mistakenly left in summer (off) mode. That was not good. lol Be well, my dear!

We’re getting some warmer weather the next few days. All our snow is likely to melt. We have a whole house humidifier which helps, but we still get a fair amount of static electricity with our furs too.

I’ve been looking into buying a humidifier. When I touch Mudpie I’m giving her a spark! I’m eager to see how she reacts to the mist.

Sixty sounds lovely. Enjoy the weather. Using a dehumidifier sounds like a great idea.

We’re pretty damp, too. The static is bad, though, especially when the clothes come out of the dryer.

Simon, we are glad it’s getting warmer there, but that static electricity is no joke. We get that here, too. Ava like to stand right below the mist of our humidifiers. Isn’t that silly?

I hate static electricity! On the other hand, our low humidity here is a blessing in summer. ❤️

HAHA….Lily would be interested in the steam, but she would check it out and walk away, like she does guest. Misty, that would drive her nuts. You are, as always, so handsome.

Where does this crazy cold weather come from? Brrrr…..we are getting into the 40’s but the weatherman just said we are heading into a new snowstorm. I need Springtime and a little warmer weather. I have missed you all. Been reading, hanging out with Mister Kitty who for whatever reason has to run outside the the backyard, jump inside the Igloo doghouse none of the dogs will use and enjoy five minutes of peace and quiet until I shoo him inside. He is the strangest feline fellow I have ever known. He also is cold blooded apparently and in the… Read more »

We have those warmer temps headed in next week too. We don’t mind the cold and the snow, just not the ridiculously frigid temps we just had. We have the humidity set pretty high here because of our Dad’s dry eyes, but it sure makes for moist window panes:)
