Freedom!

Wee-sa free! Yes friends, after many many long endless weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeks (The Mommy sez: Uh kids, it's only been three and a half weeks...) of not getting to go outside, we *finally* got to go out again yesterday evening! The Mommy said that Bugsy's incision from his surgery had healed up enough for it to be safe for him to go out, and with a change in the weather pattern, the temperature finally cooled enough so we wouldn't immediately burst into little kitty balls of flame. (The Mommy sez: "Cooler" being a relative term...92 instead of 102 by the time I got home from work. That's practically an arctic cold front in Texas in July!)

While we all had a good time hanging out, eating grass, and rolling around on the concrete and in the dirt, Sassy particularly had fun attacking one bush:


While Pixie was doing the same to the one right next to it:


The weather is supposed to stay cooler for the next several days -- albeit with threats of isolated thunderstorms most days -- so we hope to get some more chances to get out before it gets hot again. And also before Bugsy gets grounded again; his eye surgery is on Thursday, so he'll no doubt be on "no outside" restrictions again after that for awhile, which means so will the rest of us...

Have a great weekend!

We enjoyed the cooler weather, too. But Mom did not take us out. maybe today. We don't get to have fun with the bushes, though!

It looks like you had a blast! Good things are worth waiting for.

Eric and Flynn said...

Glad you got to go out again and enjoy the bushes. We would collapse if it was 92, never mind 102! We can't even get up to 62 at the moment. Please can you send us some of your hots. Not too much, 15-20 degrees would suit us fine. We could handle up to 80f.

We are glad to see that you were helping your mom trim the bushes. (Sassy looks so much like Franklin in that photo!) And we know how good 92 can feel after 102 - we are very fortunate that it rarely gets that hot here.

P.S. Our mom says for your mom not to worry about the tag unless she feels like doing it! No pressure.

Cooler weather is nice. Gives the a/c a rest. I stood by the door--while Mommy went out and chewed some grass, while Perry meowed and rolled all over the cement. Tommy sat on a chair so Perry wouldn't dash thru the fence and hot wire a car.

If you guys aren't great little weather reporters! We have the current weather and the coming week's. Now, if it would only be that nice where we live...sigh.

The Monkeys said...

Yippee! You guys look like you're having a blast

Milo and Alfie said...

Enjoy! It's always lovely to get outside and sniff the air!

The Kool-Kittie-Krew said...

Wow, you guys are REALLY lucky you're allowed to go out and play. Our mommy brings the outside in for us to sniff and stuff. We have too much BIG wildlife where we live and she's afaid we may get hurt. But, every once in a while, when the Dad's not around, mom lets us go out on the front deck. THAT'S a very special treat!
