The heat here is overwhelming. We haven’t had a whisper of a breeze unless a storm was brewing and even then it has been short lived. I’ve noticed the kitties prefer to eat during the cooler hours of the day in spite of everything I am running in the house to cool things down. I’m hearing the same thing from other cat guardians. Appetites are a bit off too. I still managed to get some play time going though.
Treats and a little play Wanda Heart?

Is it too hot for play? Even for a feral?

Oh! Lol That’s right..... formal feral. Please accept my apologies!

I will ignore that remark human.

You must make the mouse dance though.

Have a great night everyone and don’t forget, in spite of everything...... dance! :heartshape:

Wanda Heart has developed into quite the little lady- but then, I'm kind of biased. Hard to believe that she's the same bedraggled wretch from that first night.
We thank you! It is amazing what a safe place, a bit of medical care, food and love can do for a little one. She was so very close being lost to the world. I also think she looks very different. Our baby is all grown up now! I don’t see any fear or pain and she can dance! She is growing. She’s getting almost as tall as the “Big Girls!” She’s much leaner/more muscular build though. I suppose she will bulk up some with age. I love her purrsonality. Her name is a purrfect fit and I can’t imagine her with any other name. :cloud9: :winkcat::redheartpump:

Furballsmom Furballsmom Her little heart shaped face and pink nose! Lol

Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 Oh yes. I stand corrected! Ferals don’t attend many dance parties.Pure house kitty!

Ruby's appetite has been off too, with eating little during the day, and more overnight. And I'm sure it's nowhere as hot here as it is where you are. Seriously muggy though. :sweat:

Awwww.... Wanda Heart. :hearthrob:

Have a great night everyone and don’t forget, in spite of everything...... dance! :heartshape:
Yup, I definitely have a problem ... :crackup:

rubysmama rubysmama and Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 It’s not a problem, it’s a delight!

Cat dances! Even in this awful heat, I could enjoy dancing with cats! The temp is 81 here but the “feels like” is 100 tonight. The pictures are inspiring! Maybe the appetites here will improve after we do a kitty shuffle. :lol:

Any ideas from you kitties? This is what the cats would say.

Any opinion or ideas Banjo?

Purrsonally, I purr fur the fan dance. I suggest that everyone just cool it for tonight.

I will wish for cooler temperatures for everyone else tonight. :heartshape:

Up for a word play challenge?
I know weekends keep many people occupied but.......can anyone guess the name of the dance that Banjo was doing? She gave a good hint!

:yeah:

Our smiles tonight come from BJ, his Second lady love, Mitsy and their daughter, Banjo.


The cats always know when something is outside but as a human, I don’t. I trust the kitties. They tell me in cat speak.

What is it Froggie?
37AFDEAA-7E2A-4812-9E57-FC0F38F84082.jpeg

Something is out there! I’m worried about it.
BDC13143-6617-4482-B8DA-26E595154E9B.jpeg

Bj, your daughter is worried. Do something!
DAFEF1DD-4D53-4B91-8BFC-E40760D4F00B.jpeg

Rats. Let me get a little protection. A safari hat maybe?
89EC1253-E326-401A-8425-AF0C111B0839.jpeg

Well.... Purry is running. I’ll go on safari and catch everything girls! No worries.
3A2E90DF-4287-4C4B-9B30-F7BC716636C7.jpeg

I’ve rounded up all the critters I could find in here.
272288BA-86FC-406E-B6B2-F3A7633D5834.jpeg

Is that what Banjo is worried about?
BC601020-995A-4B70-A7B5-29A62FB594AE.jpeg

Wait a minute....
4F2AB541-5016-474F-AA1D-96F5A5EEAF48.jpeg

I just heard something outside too!
ECC9FC6D-9BEE-40FE-8A81-7816838214AA.jpeg

What was that?!?!?!
A246FC52-24B6-465B-A6E4-E9FC858C80A5.jpeg

Well.....
9CD8217B-BF5A-427B-BBD9-087ABD9C328E.jpeg

I think we should all hide under the furniture.
E55507B4-E0D2-4A13-94F6-51B53F35D387.jpeg

You take the hat mom. Hats are a safe place and you won’t fit under the sofa.

Thank goodness for my alarm kitties! Besides all the cats giving me “the alarm kitty look”, Lady ran through the room calling me. Lol The kitties scattered around the house. Banjo ran inside one of the cages, Mitsy,Flowers and Thrasher stood together on a windowsill, Bonjure nearly bowled me trying to get into my arms as Precious made a leap past my shoulder and onto a high spot. Wow! Each kitty found a secure spot as I grabbed a flashlight before going outside.
I did not get to see what was outside but I did hear something crashing through the woods. It may have been a deer, although I haven’t seen one in quite awhile. Perhaps a large dog? I really don’t know but whatever it was, the cats knew it was there and they made sure to tell me in their own way.
Bj was not pleased that I went out without the hat. He was waiting at the door when I returned and he gave me his most concerned look.
The kitties are all back out of their “safe places”, and Banjo is now in my lap and sniffing me over. Checking me for any damage I suppose. Lol Lady is sniffing at the door so I am quite sure that the new creature has left. BJ is laying on my shoulder. I have a feeling that when I lay down, he will be my hat for the night. Froggie is back on the window. All is well at Chez Catbird and I can go to bed knowing that the cats will let me know if anything new and exciting is happening!
Wait a minute! Where is Whistle? Ha! He is still laying where I left him when this started. That tells me one thing. If it didn’t scare Whistle, whatever was outside, did NOT have big bunny ears! ;) He’s a brave fellow!

Have a great night everyone! :heartshape:

rubysmama rubysmama and N NY cat man I think Banjo is kind of out of circulation ever since she got spayed. :lol: I did think of the Dance of the Seven veils and Fan dance. Banjo might do that to entertain Froggie.;) Since Banjo was laying on the box that held a fan, I was kind of going for the Fandango. Or maybe Fanbanjo?:dunno: Lol That’s what I get for taking hints from Banjo.

I do like the animation that tabbytom tabbytom posted. Lol

Furballsmom Furballsmom Bonjure tells me he was just teaching me how to play catch. :oops: I am very grateful.
