Heatwave #CaturdayArt

Happy Caturday!


Mum is rushing this post today because the heatwave of the last few days has totally taken its toll on her and she's behind on blogging duties. It's made her so ill and sweaty that all she can do is lay on the bed with the fan blowing - just like me!

In the UK, we had the hottest July day ever on Thursday. It got to 38 Celsius in the town where we live in Essex (about 100 Fahrenheit).

We know some of you have had it worse. In France, Belgium, Holland and Germany and other places it got to above 40c. It's horrifying, isn't it?

Climate Change is real, people!


Anyway, here's our art for today.

LunaPic: Tuscany

Lunapic: Sketch 3

We finally cooled off this week! I hope you all get some relief!

It cooled off after a week of 90 degrees, but we think you have it even hotter. Purrs to stay well !

My human is totally upset by all the people in her country in utter and complete denial of climate change. She does not understand how so many stupid people can exist in one place.

I love the first art piece. We had 100F for a few days and than it cooled down. I hope you will too. As I'm sure you're aware of, we have one political party who denies climate change exists.

The heat has been very draining, but also the mostly 95% and higher humidity which I find worse. Today it is much cooler at last and the humidity is down to 82% and should drop significantly more through the day.
The art is lovely and the Tuscany effect is my favourite.

Athena, you and your Mum never disappoint! We hope your Mum is feeling better soon!

Very pretty sweet Athena and I sure hope some cooler temps find you soon.

Sorry it is so hot. I don't like the summer and heat either- I look forward to the fall. Beautiful art. Thanks for hosting. Have a nice weekend- hopefully cooler. XO

I cannot imagine how you all are coping with the heat; may the cold front arrive NOW!

We hope you have better weather soon. Just relax with mom in bed and let the fan keep you both cool. Love the Caturday artwork you shared, Athena. Have a relaxing rest of your weekend.

oh my I feel so bad for you! We have had it super hot too, but we are more equipped for it. You are right, climate change IS real. Maybe one day Trump will get that through his thick skull but I doubt it...........and...........your art is delightful!

We're not quite that bad but the heat is just horrible. You don't feel like doing a darn thing you don't have to. Lovely art, ladies.

Athena, our mom says she knows just how miserable your mum is. Ours cannot tolerate any kind of heat or humidity. Climate change is real. Those who don't think so are just DUMB! We really like both the effects you used today. At first we thought we liked #2 best, but then we examined the other and really like all the colors. You are lovely in both. Thanks for having this hop. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

That heat sounds horrid, Athena. We had heat indexes of 44 C / 110 F last week ...ugh.

Stay cool, okay? Hugs to you and Mum. XO

What a beautiful picture and Aertwork of you, sweet Athena. It finally cooled down to 19°C, that's almost 25°C difference from how it was. We have a lot of rain and thunder, but we can breathe again. Hope you will too soon🙏COOL Pawkisses for a wonderful week ahead🐾😽💞
