Miss Ashlynne sent me a nice glass of lemonaid and wished me a nice summer on my mountain. I'm having a very nice summer! Abby's love heat and it's hot. We've broken records of 100 degrees here, so, I was not getting as much screened porch time as I like for a while. This week will be mid 80's, will feel like a real cool spell.
Momcatt has given up trail walking for now as the rattlesnakes are most prevalent this year. Mom almost stepped on one recently!!!!!! A local ranger confirmed there are more this year-he said they strike his boots all the time!!!!! Since Mom does not want her boots stricken, she will stick with track and paved path walking for now :)
Happy Summer Purrs to All from Gentleman Jack

Snakes MOL not for me!!!!we hate snakes, Ruffy we have heard they taste like chicken, but we don't want to try! Mom is scared to death of all snakes, so glad your Mom isn't walking the trails...we don't want anything to happen to her.

We hate to hear that so many are living in that awful hot weather...we are not hot, but we will probably be getting humid and warmer next week...

Our Mom is scared to death of them too-she loves to hike BUT that snake encounter SCARED her so much she says she's not hiking again all her years of hiking, this is the first time she's even seen a snake much less had a scary experience....
Hope we all have cool weather soon.

Tonight is the furst in way too many that we finally could open the windows. We are more comfortable now, here in MI, but we need RAIN! We are desperate fur rain in our area, though some areas have had too much...go figure!

Happy Summer to you, GJ!

Yikes!!! That's a little TOO close! Personally, I like snakes. They are great fun to pounce on, but the Mama always takes them away from me, saying that we need them for the garden - spoilsport! Of course, ours aren't RATTLESNAKES, just garters and cornsnakes mostly. Yeah, WeBees, feels pretty good here this morning at 60 degrees - beats that 90 something degree weather!

Nice to hear from you!

Your mommy sure is brave to walk where there are rattlesnakes. Hope she stays inside with you and keeps cool and bite-free.

Enjoy your porch!

I like to hike, too - to the food bowl, then to the cat tree, then to the couch.

Ewwww, rattlesnakes! We hear they are pretty bad tempered? Not that the snakes around here are all sweetness and light either, MOL
