Beat the Heat...

I'm not sure how many of you have heard, but the Seattle area has had record breaking heat over the past week or so and it has been MISERABLE! Last Monday: 92, Tuesday: 95, Wednesday: 105, Thursday: 94, Friday: 89. Expecting a break today of ONLY 87!

Last Sunday Matt surprised me and told me we were going to Sears and buying an Air Conditioner... for the kitties! I was SO excited knowing very well that when the kitties got something like A/C I would be able to also benefit! :)

Well, they really weren't very impressed by A/C. As a matter of fact, it made too much noise and they preferred to stay in the kitchen where it was still 95 as opposed to coming into the living room where it was merely 83! After the first couple days they did discover the trade-off between noise and comfort and did finally move into the much more agreeable living room temps.

Now, the A/C unit is affectionately referred to as MBB (Marvin's Big Brother, as you might recall, Marvin is the automatic poop box we bought that terrified them also).
