A summer from hell for my 10th birthday

This post is also available in : French German Italian

Since June, we’ve been experiencing hot temperatures and a terrible drought, as has the rest of Europe.

The grass is completely dry, some trees have lost their leaves, the fire risk is at its highest level in weeks, and there are water restrictions everywhere.

It’s in these extreme conditions that I’m going to celebrate my 10th birthday.

You’re all invited ! For the reasons I just mentioned, there will be no barbecue ; the party will start inside, in the cool. Several tiled spaces equipped for a nap will be available.

We will then go out at nightfall, when the temperatures are more bearable, to continue the festivities in the garden. Come join us !

    Happy Purrday!!! Thank you so much for inviting us to your party. We wish we could send you our rain. A Tropical Depression has been sitting in the Gulf dumping water on us for ages. We are having a wetter than usual summer. We do wish Mother Nature could get her act together and spread the rain around to areas that need it, and give the rest of us a chance to dry out.

    How exciting! We are looking forward to your pawty Zorro. This heat and drought is sapping all of our energy – good idea to take a nap on cool tiles.

    Sounds like a great party! Happy Birthday. We sleep all day and run around all night when it is cooler. Your party should start at moon rise I think. When we see it, we will party here too!

    We almost hate to say we have been getting good weather here. Cooler than usual temperatures and more than average rain. TBT says, well, it has to fall “somewhere”. We wish we could spread it around better though. We would like things to be easier for ALL kitties and Beings…
