April 22, 2009
The cats and I are crushed by an early heat wave. Itís been 90-96 degrees for three days in a row, and Iím beginning to question the calendar. Is it still April? ĎCause it feels like July.

The cats lie flat on the floor of the porch, staying in the shade and trying to catch stray breezes. It must be hellish to have a fur coat in weather like this. Itís too hot for them to play and cuddle the way they usually do, and their stillness is as strange as the record-breaking heat in spring. This, too, will pass.
