Coping in the heatwave

I am finding ways to keep cool in this heatwave. Adelaide is the hottest city.

S-p-r-a-w-l-e-d on the tiled floor is a bit cooler. If I didn't have that annoying camera flashed in my eyes, that is.

SHUT EYES and I will think of something nice.

Maybe I will help Lynettea read her book for book club. It is supposed to be about someone standing in a field of rye, I think. It isn't very interesting though, as there are absolutely no cats in it whatever. All the hero thinks about is me me me me me. I can relate to that.

Maybe he will be born in his next lifetime as a cat. Probably as a cat in a luxurious home that has nothing to do except complain. MIAOUWWWWW! Lynettea thinks I am being too harsh and she can find deeper existential meanings in the book.
HARSH? I meant it as praise.

I was thinking of you last night when I was watching the news about the heatwave in Adelaide. I bet you're glad you're not floofy!

It's hard to look cool when you're so hot, isn't it?

I am jealous that it is so warm there.

Hi, me again!

Got your message about wanting to help out in the new Cat Government. I'm going to need a cat just like me to be my advisor/right-hand cat - preferably a handsome Antipodean Russian Blue. I think you'll fit the bill perfectly!

Keep cool Diamond!
Mine Mummy has that book too. I think you're really clever to read the book. Me, I fall asleep if the book has no pictors of birdies or chick-hens or handsome kitties.

Lying on the tile is a good idea to stay cool!
