Running Away From Home

The Hot Car

Last week my friend Grogan the Greyhound came to visit with me for a few days. No sooner did he get to my house than Mommy packed me into the hot car and we headed to NJ. It was 93 degrees! We had no air conditioning! I have to give Mommy credit, though. She stopped at a convenience store and bought two bags of ice. One bag of ice for me to sit next to and one bag of ice for her. It didn't work. Soon we were hot and wet. I prefer just being hot. Wet is not my thing.

When we finally got to NJ I got right to work chasing chipmunks. NJ is practically overrun with chipmunks! I could only chase chipmunks for short stints because it was so hot outside. Even the chipmunks were complaining about the heat wave. Fortunately, my grand-people have air conditioning in the house.

The reason we went to NJ was to visit with my Grammy. She is very sick. I was not allowed to jump up and down and give her kisses like I usually do when I visit with her. I had to be very slow and gentle, which I am excellent at. I sat with her while she rested and was extra cute so she would smile at me. That made her feel better, to see how cute I was and to pet me a little.

She is almost all better so we came home to Maine where it is less hot. Ooops. Mommy doesn't want me to say how nice the whether is here because other people might move here from places like NJ that are hot. Mommy wants to keep this place to ourselves, which is fine by me. To tell the truth, the weather is nice now, but it can turn nasty fast. Grogan told me that there were HUGE thunderstorms while I was away with Mommy. In the winter we get that snow stuff which I could do without.

But, today's weather was perfect. Grogan and I hung out in the yard and I told him all about Cupcake. We saw Cupcake only once, he was wearing a pink flea collar. Mommy said Cupcake's sister cat got fleas so all the henchcats and Cupcake are wearing flea collars. Ha! Ha! They have fleas!

Itchy, itchy, itchy....

Ah, well, it is late and my friend Grogan is already snoring away. I think I will settle in on Mommy's pillow for my nighttime snooze.
