Considering what the weatherman predicted for us I wouldn't count on it Arni. We'll be heating up again by Friday and Saturday here in Illinois.

do you mean while you're gone or just in the apt?
i can think of freezing big blocks of ice and putting the containers (like milk jugs or large water bottles)in front of fans. There's also those cooling mats (if i could get the right material i'd sew some up for ya..i have the little bead things you put in them)but after the water evaporates they're not cool any more.

Do you have someone coming in to feed/water/check on your furbabes? If so, they can add icecubes to the water bowl to keep their water cool. Fans running in several directions to make a nice crossbreeze helps, bare ceramic tile to lay on, keep the curtains closed to keep the hot sun out (I'm using silvery car shades to reflect the sun out--makes it 15° cooler in the room just doing that).

Shame there isn't such a thing as a cooling pad you plug in like a heating pad.......we really need somebody to invent one of those.

well, was it this time of year when you've left them before? cuz that might do it...or maybe its just cuz of the different place you're in now?

where in Ohio are you going for the weekend?

Could it be the extra hot and humid summer we've been having that's got you worried this year more than in the past?

Now I know why I'm a little more cautious about leaving them thru...just had to think about it a little. The last time I lived in a place that didn't have air conditioning, I didn't have Jay Jay yet...and he has all that fur!! affraid

The place I'm going to in Ohio is between Cleveland and Pennsylvania, pretty close to Lake Erie. Its my childhood home Smile

Not to mention JayJay's shorter nose that makes it harder to breathe. I imagine all this humidity has been hard on him this summer. Do you have anyone who can come in to check on him a few times a day, to make sure he's okay?

Well...The Kitties Survived!

Post by ARNIgal on Mon Aug 23, 2010 12:34 pm

Thankfully the weather was cloudy in Michigan for the weekend. I think that helped Envigado and Jay Jay a lot. E was a bit cautios when I came in the door when I returned, but was then immediately full of things to say. After I quickly taking a look at an important piece of mail (actually I wasn't quite finished), Jay Jay rushed and snuggled right under my chin. Then he started bossing me around with his "Human, shake my food dish", "O.K., now turn on the bathroom sink", etc., etc.!!

You haven't realized that KITTY needs are far more important than ANYTHING you think you need to do? Laughing Silly ARNI.

Oh...and I almost forgot that Jay Jay would like me to pet him while he eats too. He'll sit next to the food dished and just wait til he catches my gaze...of course I'll then pet him then he's all "nomma nomma num num" with his food.

Envigado is still watching me like a hawk... Smile

I do that for Bijoux sometimes, and I get rewarded with purrs. Smile

He was "looking" at me again before I left for the library while sitting in front of his dish. I told Jay Jay he could eat by himself...and what do you know, he did Smile

sometimes they will eat when you've turned your back...salem has been driving me nuts about that. i put food in his bowl in the middle of the night and he will sit there meowing at me like i didn't give him the right stuff. i tell him he's got to eat that and go off to the bathroom. when i come out he's got his face in the plate eating away:)

Guess he's finally figured out beggers can be choosy about their meals. Bijoux much prefers eating when we do, but will eat by himself if he has to. And he acts like he's so put out by that. Talk about trying to lay on the guilt trip...............

Sometimes I have to shake the food dish for Jay Jay out of necessity (or turn it around). If there isn't any food at the back of the dish, his flat face can't get to it Sad

that's just not a flat face kitty thing...i have to do thaT for nobe...if the food isn't in the right position in her bowl she can't eat it either.
have you tried feeding him in a very low bowl or saucer? (the rescue kitties perfer saucers...i've been finding them at the thrift shop for under 25cents so if one breaks i don't feel too bad;) ).
