Boy it went from being so cold & having to put the heat on to a blast furnace around here! Mom & The Dad got a new furnace & air conditioner put in at the end of Dec so we could get the tax break, and the service co. had to add some stuff & calibrate it or something before the air could go on. Well, we had appt set a few times, but the rain caused them to be cancelled. They finally set the appt for Friday the 10th. Then THE HEAT WAVE. I swear I was watching Smitty actually melt yesterday. It was soooo hot in the house, the inside temp read 89. It made Nana not feel very good, and Mom kept giving her cold washcloths for her head. I was pretty blech too. At one point the three of us were all splayed out in the hallway where we could get the air from the fans on both sides. Mom felt so bad for me, she took me in the bathroom, and wet my paws cause she read that kitties sweat from their pawpads. She then wet her hand and wiped my face & head off. At first I was kinda squirmy, but then heeeeeyyyy, that felt pretty good! I sat & let her wipe my whole face again. I think it worked, because I was able to go to sleep then. Smitty got a facewipe too, and his fur on his head was all sticking up, it was pretty funny. Maizy actually likes water, so she didn't care. I even ate my food cold, and that helped. Mom called the company yesterday & told them that she had a senior in the house, and that her pets were geting sick, and they made a special appointment for this morning! So aahhhhh we are now nice & cool. I even jumped around tonite & played with my catnip cigar from Boxie. Have a good night! signed a very kewl kitteh!...

Glad they got your air working. Mom does the water on the paws, head and belly with us and will put ice cubes in our water bowl (which we try to play with). Stay cool! Purrs, Skylar
