Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

Too Hot

. . . . for a Cool Cat
by Dylan
(senior male cat of household)

What's a cat to do when it's too hot to go outside and patrol the property? Maybe make a nest in the newspaper recycling box and enjoy the air conditioning.

Ahhh! This is the life!

Chloe: Whatcah doin', Dylan?
Dylan: Go away, Chloe. I'm trying to take a nap.

Chloe: Can I join you? That box looks plenty big enough. You could share.
Dylan: Go away! 

Rats! That pesky Chloe is driving me to indulge in my favorite vice—catnip.

First, I savor it. Then inhale.

MMMmmmmm! Good stuff.

And I'm not going to share it with Chloe!
