The Hot Summer Day

Vi har jo ikke vært i nærheten av å få en hetebølge her i Norge!  Så langt har de vanligste temperaturer ligget rundt 25-27 grader i skyggen, men – da er temperaturene ofte mellom 35-40 i selve solveggen. Det kan være kritisk for mange av våre firbente venner, men heldigvis har de vett på å oppsøke skygge og å drikke vann. Når det gjelder det siste, så er de ofte avhengige av oss mennesker på varme dager. Mikkel vil nødig ha vann fra skål! Melk – jatakk, men vann – iklke tale om!  Men når/hvis han får det rett fra springen, så er han en lykkelig katt!
Kan hende burde vi alle forhøre oss med vår lokale bartender og et lignende arrangement lar seg gjennomføre?

Of course, it hasn’t been nearly as hot in Norway as in central Europe. Nowhere near a regular heatwave! So far our medium summer temperatures have been lying around 25-27 C (which is slightly less than normal), even then the temperatures in direct sunlight may be as much as 35-40 C, which may be critical temperatures to our  small 4-legged friends. Fortunately they have the sense to seek shelter in the shadows when it gets too hot, but – they need water (and more than usual!) And when it comes to ‘water’ they are more than often dependant of us – the owners – to get it! ‘Mikkel’ is a strange cat!
He doesn’t much appreciate water from a bowl. Milk – yes, but water – no way!
However, if we can offer running water directly from the tap, he’s one happy cat!

Perhaps we ought to bring the problem afield with our local batender? Would it in near future be possible to establish a similar arrangement?  🙂

    Cats are amazing in their instincts for sustainability. Bartenders are some of my favorite people. A smooth glass of red wine makes the day a little brighter.
