It's summer! After a rather chilly end to spring where mom had to put the heat on a couple of times at the end of May and the beginning of June, she can finally open the windows so we can have breezes.

I like the cool night breezes on the fur and mom sits to the right where she can give me scritches. She has this all nice and set up for me. Sometimes, I see animals of the night come up onto the deck, but most of the time, I just get to snooze in the night air.

But, with summer come thunderstorms. I don't like thunderstorms. They scare me. This year, most of the ones we've had have occurred when mom's been home and I can hide near her. I don't care what she says, they are big and scary.

When we get that flash of light and the boom of thunder, I sometimes go behind the recliner. Mom recognized that I feel safe back there so she put a blanket down for me.

She doesn't try to get me to move. She just lets me stay. I feel safe here and I brought one of my mouse toys back there, too, for comfort.

We had a bit of water in the basement so mom's been cleaning down there. I went down today and she has a fan going, which I don't like so I won't hide down there when there's a storm about. Do you have a special place you go when there's thunder or do you like to watch the storms?

Stay safe in the heat and the heavy rains.

She's a good egg, for making you a special place back there.

Angel will always find a corner to hide in during storms and fireworks. Chuck seems a bit more nonchalant, but he'll freak out sometimes when there is an unexpected sound.

The last time we had a thunderstorm (we only get them rarely here in southern California), my human made me do tricks! She said it was to distract me and keep me grounded - they were tricks I already knew, and I barely noticed the storm.

Your Mom is awesome, and we love that she put that blanket where you feel safe from the storms.

Pilchard, we are glad your Mom looks after you so well :)
WE also have had some cool days and rain too.
Just the other evening mom put the furnace on for 10 minutes to take the chill off the place. It has been an unusually cool Spring and start to Summer.
Purrs Georgia and Julie,
