September Heatwave #SundaySelfie

It's September and here in England we're in the middle of a heatwave. Yuck! What is it with this weather? OK, August was quite cold for a summer month but we're in autumn now. And houses here get too heated, and when it's muggy with no wind blowing, it's too sticky for Mum and she complains. 

What about me with my furs? I can't complain as I love it when Mum gets a wet cloth and rubs me down to help me cool off. 

Anyway, when it's like this the best thing to do is sleep it off. With the fan on, of course!

We're joining The Cat On My Head for Sunday Selfies.

And we're also joining Four-Legged Furballs and 15andmeowing for Friendly Fill-Ins.

 1. _________ your _________. 
 2. My plans for September include _________ and _________. 
 3. _________ has made my life easier. 
 4. _________ really complicates things.

1.Spoil your cat. 
2. My plans for September include trimming some hedges and mowing lawn, which I hate doing. I hope it cools down because there's no way I'm doing any of that in this heatwave!
3. The Internet has made my life easier mostly because I'm an introvert. I like not having to go to the shops because I get anxious in crowds. I do all my shopping online. 
4. Living with humans really complicates things. 

1. Always love your human. 
2. My plans for September include purring and kissing Mum to relax her as she thinks of the first anniversary of her brother's funeral. It was 19th September, same day as the Queen's. 
3. My mum has made my life easier. 
4. Not being able to catch those birdies in our garden really complicates things.

I agree, the heat is unbearable! Mid 60s is plenty hot enough for me, after that I get crotchety. Apparently there were thunderstorms over Plymouth and Ivybridge last night, but they missed us and it is still hot and humid here.
That is a lovely selfie, Athena.

Beautiful selfie and I like all the effects. Thank you both for participating in the fill-ins, great answers except I am sorry for your mum. I know how hard anniversaries of loved ones passings can be. XO

I hope it cools down for you, Athena. It was hot here last week…now it’s cooler…feels like autumn.

Hmmm ... over the weekend, my Momma said we couldn't snuggle 24/7 because it was too warm. As if! ~Ellie Mae
