Lazy Summer Day



It has been very hot and humid here. Yesterday the heat index said it felt like 109 degrees F.  The air-conditioner really can't get the inside temperature more then 20 degrees below what it is outside. So we have been enjoying lazy days. I have been working in polymer clay making  miniature animals, while Kilmouski naps next to me.


 There is a dormer window I put a kitty perch in upstairs. The fabric pillow he is resting his head on is printed with cats. One of which looks exactly like him. That pillow belonged to his predecessor. It still apparently contains the wonderful scent of Honeysuckle after more than 20 years! I wish I could buy him Honeysuckle wood sticks (for cats) but it isn't sold in the USA. You can only get it in Canada. Sadly, they won't mail it to the US either. Catnip just does nothing for him but he thinks Honeysuckle is magic!

    We had heat, then rain which was nice for a bit but now we have heat and stupidity... I mean humidity. Same thing really, just pronounced differently.

  4. This is such a lovely calm photo, so restful.
    I wouldn't mind just a little of your heat....it is rather 'cold' here. I love winter, but for some reason I am a bit over-it this year. X

  6. Thank you! I do think you're a bit prejudiced when it comes to this kitty though. :-))

    The funny thing I forgot to mention is. That Honeysuckle pillow of was in his toy basket this morning. He took it up there with him.

  8. Kilmouski looks such a peaceful, contented, beautiful cat, who obviously knows exactly how to spend these hot summer days.

  9. Aww, what a lovely picture! He certainly seems happy on "his" cushion! It is wonderful to have a furry companion nearby! We could use a little of that heat... we are cold and wet here... didn't go above 59F yesterday and barely reached 66F today!

  10. OK Betsy.. I will happily trade you the heat for some cooler weather! ;-)

    Kilmouski LOVES his cushion. He is the ultimate connoisseur of comfort!
