Mr. Squirrel

This is our NOMSS friend, Mr. Squirrel. As you can plainly see, he was all sprawled out in the dirt trying to cool his belly yesterday when it was 105F outside. He would scamper around, and then come back and do a belly-flop to cool off. We're so glad that we are inside cats!!!

It has been very very hot here, too. That little squirrel doesn't even have a place to go that is air conditioned or anything. Poor little guy!

Cute little guy! Mommy says her heart breaks for all of the kitties outside. It has to be terrible. So yes, we are glad we are indoor kitties!
Smooches to Dorf! Hope he's doing better and can stop being a headlight soon!

That poor squirrel. I've never seen nothing like that. Our squirrels stay up i the trees. If they have to go on the ground they run as fast as they can. But then again it's hardly ever in the 100's around here.

Hey, isn't that guy doing the Monty Q? That's too funny. I can't do it, but a squirrel can.

Tyler beat me to saying that the squirrel is doing the Monty Q. It's a cute picture, but I feel sorry for him in the heat. I hope he has a reliable water source.
