Feline human, after all

Even at 8am, they’re starting to feel it.

A week of warm, unabated weather (or “summer” as we’ll come to know it) has sent them scarpering for shade beneath trees. They lie there, breathing heavily, as if already waving a white flag in the face of what’s to come.

When I locked my front door just minutes earlier, those I left behind barely knew where to put themselves, forsaking sofa and basket for patio slabs and even kitchen worksurfaces. Anything to get something cool beneath their overheating bodies.

So much of their life is a serene blend of sleeping, prowling and eating that even this cat-lover feels a certain gratification at watching these magnificently aloof creatures briefly dragged down to our level.

Hot and bothered.

Feel my pain.
