A Magnificent Mancat on Monday

Evan is beyond glad that our 90°F days mean that he can bask in the sun. In fact, he can do more than just bask in the sun. He can pose in that blinding orb in the sky!

Can you even see Evan through all that sunshine? We're thinking you can probably at least see those whiskers. Aren't they magnificent?

We hope you're all staying safe and cool in this sunny summer heat!

Doodle of the Day:

Are you ready for a Christmas in July doodle? As I mentioned and showed yesterday, last year I went for a beachy sort of theme for Christmas in July. This time around, though, I was feeling a different sort of theme. Those of you who visit us often have probably noticed that I've gotten in the habit of drawing certain cozy, quaint indoor scenes lately. I decided to extend this current style of mine to my Christmas in July doodles, which led to images like this:

Did you know?
Did you know studies have shown that a vehicle's interior temperature can rise 34°F above the outdoor temperature after just 30 minutes of being shut off? After 60 minutes, the interior of a car can rise 43°F higher than the temperature outside. To give some examples, on a mere 70°F day, the interior of a parked car can rise to 104°F after 30 minutes, and it can rise to 113°F after 60 minutes. On an 80°F day, that equates to an interior vehicle temperature of 114°F after 30 minutes and 123°F after 60 minutes. And on days where the temperature outside rises to 90°F, the interior of a parked car can reach a scorching 124°F after 30 minutes and 133°F after 60 minutes. Obviously, these conditions are neither safe nor livable. Needless to say, and as you all certainly already know, don't leave your furbabies in a hot car!

Evan is a handsome mancat with wonderful whiskers. Yes he is.

I'm so with you about hot vehicles and our furbabies. Also our children. What are people thinking when they do this. Oh right, they aren't thinking.

Have a purrfect Mancat Monday, Evan. My best to your mom. ♥

Your whiskers are looking pawsome, Evan! I'm glad that you are able to enjoy some of this beautiful sunshiny weather.

Evan, you are so good looking with those whiskers!

You and i and many others agree that leaving our pets in a car is an awful idea, yet there are still people who do it and it boggles my mind.

Evan, we do love your glorious whiskers! And the way you glow in the bright sunshine is pretty awesome, too. Stay cool, sweet pals!
