Melting Manly Monday

It is HOT! A few days ago, #1 was wearing sweaters and today it is supposed to be 35C! Crazy! Still, heat is the perfect environment for one of my very favourite activities: lizard watching! That channel is on at a couple of different windows:

Other than that, there isn't a whole lot to do in this heat other than hang out with your brother:

Tom: It has been one whole week since I last had a Frisbee or tennis ball thrown for me. The torture has just been awful. Still..... At the beginning, it was like this:

But I pull so hard that it defeats the whole purpose, so we are now back to a much more manly this:

The trick is to find the right balance between my resting properly and my not feeling as though I am in prison. So we go for walks on our lane:

And I visit my girlfriend Damia several times a day:

I'm doing just fine!

Vidock: #1 came to see me and my paddockmates yesterday evening. Boy was it hot! And the flies are just awful! It's great when she's there because she swats them away! I wish she would stay!

So, here are the three of us, doing what we do:

And a rather manly one of me, swatting away!

We also wanted to mention a couple of our friends today. Young Fernant gave everyone a huge fright when he disappeared late yesterday evening. His family, as well as #1 and Tommy were out looking for him up until midnight and again first thing. We are happy to say that he has been found (at the pound!). We're glad you're home, little buddy!

Also, some of you may remember little Tora-Chan who was adopted by our friend Ms. N and family. He is enjoying life to the full with his siblings Kaze and Chibi. We just got this fabulous picture of him:

Have a great week!


  1. We are glad to see that you are able to take some exercise and visit with friends Tommy. Keep resting that leg.

    Tora-Chan is sooooo handsome-his eyes are huge!

    Your friends,
    Niamh & Ambrose

  2. Tommy, You Rock !!!
    So hot and you still go for walk !!!
    Hot day, I was the same as Bibi, Stay cold inside and may be do nap : )
    Purrs for cold change for you

  3. Tommy, we are sorry to hear about your ligament problem. We have not been reading all your posts over the past 2 weeks, with the wedding, limited internet access then, traveling back with Audrey, etc. Hope all is well soon.

    Your heat sounds intense. Mom is good at doing the C to F conversion when the number gets close to 37C!!! Try to stay as cool as possible.

  4. I hope you all stay cool this week!

  5. So Fernant gave everyone a scare - thank goodness he was at the pound.
    We remember Tora-Chan - he looks a furry handsome man-cat now. Tommy
    please don't do too much exercise or your leg could take longer to get better. #1 could have a full time job swatting at the flies for you Vidock.
    BTW the word verification is hypant
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  6. Tom, we hope that it's a bit easier for you to not run when it is so hot outside. We want your leg to recover!

    Glad Fernant was found safe. Silly boy!

    Hope things cool down there friends. We may actually get rain tomorrow, VERY rare in California in late June.

  7. WOW Fernant! You was furry lucky to be saved from the pound! You are one lucky puppy! We are always either 35C or thereabouts! So we sympathise wif all of you.


  8. Tora-chan has become so handsome! And what a scare Fernant gave you. I wonder if he was looking for you, Tommy.

    Vidock and Bibi are looking like they are handling the heat well :)

  9. So glad Fernant is home, and Tora-Chan is looking great!

    I would love to watch lizard TV!

  10. It is good to get a look at Tora! And glad everything worked out for Fernant. That would be so scary! Have a good week and watch out for lizards. Daisy says they are rude.

  11. Cool post! Love the pics -- esp the last one! Have a great week!

  12. You have a hot day ahead of you! Oh Tommy you can't get any cuter looking through the window. Have fun playing
    Benny & Lily

  13. What a drama in all that heat - naughty Fernant. And Tora-chan is just gorgeous!

  14. That is very hot. But I guess it's good to have warm weather every once in a while for change yea? I LOVE the last shot of Tora Chan! Very cute but funny at the same time.

  15. Lizards! We wonder if French lizards taste different from American ones.
    Tommy, one week to go. We hope you are getting our healing purrs.
    Vidock, we are amazed that a fly would approach your Manly frame, we'd be scared spitless.
    Hello to NAUGHTY Fernant, and handsome Tora!

  16. I didn't know you had a girlfriend Tommy. That is so sweet. <3

  17. We are having the samee heat at the moment and all I want to do is sprawl out, it is forcast to change soon though. You are all keeping cool and looking good. Missed you all. Hugs GJ xx

  18. I'd love 35 on the F skhale - but on the C skhale: PFFFFFT!

    I guess Poor Fernant missed having fun with woo that he went on a runabout - he's a lukhky pup - maybe he shouldn't be pawmitted around HOUbibi!

    PeeEssWoo: Poor Tommy!

  19. Poor Fernant! The pound! Do you think he was trying to come to visit you and got distracted? Surely he misses you kitties and his buddy Tommy but most of all, we think he misses #1.
    Keep resting your leg, Tommy. If one has to be housebound, now, with the terrible heat, is probably the time.
    It's 115F/46C here! One cannot even imagine such weather! Our love.

  20. P.S. Tora-Chan is glorious! Kisses, kisses, kisses!
