Mancat Monday: Mother Nature Gone Rogue

It's autumn. Or so the calendar says. We even, despite trying to hold out a little longer, already put up our Halloween header. (I'm sorry, I just get such a kick out of this fun holiday.) But, the calendar only holds so much weight.

Around here, Mother Nature is completely ignoring the calendar. Autumn started on September 22nd? Whatever, says Mother Nature. Three-digit heat index it is!

Though I may be lamenting this extension of summer, someone around here is not. And that someone is my mancat Evan. This boy loves him some warm summer sunlight. Preferably at his beloved front door.

How else would a boy roll around and bask in the sun?

Evan says that Mother Nature can keep up her shenanigans, that's fine by him. He's quite enjoying his fun in this late summer sun.

What about all of our furiends out there? Is Mother Nature going rogue on you? Or are you enjoying autumn weather already?

Happy Monday!

Our Tip of the Day:
As cooler weather approaches, it's perhaps time to start thinking about things such as furnace usage. For the safety and health of both you and your furbabies, don't forget the importance of furnace maintenance. Having an inspection of your furnace performed before using it for the first time each year is never a bad idea, as a furnace pro will be able to detect any hazards or other concerns that could be potentially harmful to your furbabies or yourself. What's more, don't forget to change the air filter regularly, and certainly consider dusting and cleaning around the air vents. This can, for example, ensure the littlest amount of dust and built up allergens from circulating throughout your house upon turning on the furnace, something especially important in homes with furbabies or even humans suffering from asthma or severe allergies.

It was still in the 90s here this past week! I'm sure I'll want the warmer weather back when it's freezing and snowing, LOL. I miss our Falls and Springs here - it seems like it's either Summer or Winter here without much transition.

Evan sure does look happy in his sun puddles! :)

Last week it was hot in London but I'm pleased to say that today feels a lot more autumnal.

Nice selfies!

It was pretty warm here last week, but over the weekend it started to cool off and today we have rain and cool temps. We think fall is finally trying to make an appearance. :)

Evan is such a cutie and looks so content in the sun. We actually had the threat of a frost last night, it got down to 34 degrees. No complaints here- I love to be cold. Thank you for the reminder that we need our furnace cleaned.

It was very warm last week, but overnight it's down to much cooler temperatures. Evan looks so happy in his beloved sun puddles!

Evan, you are so sweet and handsome! I hope you get some sunbeams to lie in even when autumn weather gets there. We have been hot, hot, hot here, too. I think September was the warmest on record for a while. This week, finally, we're supposed to have daytime highs in the 70s. Still not getting cool enough (for me) at night.

Evan, we agree with you - we love the sun! We have autumn weather here now, although we did have +33C last week!

Colehaus Cats said...

Handsome Evan, we can see you love your summer sunpuddles! Autumn sunpuddles can be good, too, before the cold weather slides in and while the sun slants just right. We're having the last two days of summer this week and then, we think, fall will be arriving, and only a week late.

As soon as the first day of fall hit it's like a switch flipped! We went from high 80s down to the 50s! Mudpie is already freezing her little buns off and we just love it :) Cuddle weather is here!!!

Mother Nature has sent us rain and mid 50s temperature. Maybe you could send me some of your hots and sun.

Cody is like Evan. The hotter the better!!! No need to remind US about the furnance, I am obsessed. I change the filter every 3 months (with pets, one should)........catchatwithcarenandcody
