Get Me Out Of Here!


Help  Pals!

I'm being held hostage in my house.  Yes, I know, it's Thankful Thursday and I should be thankful for something.   I really  am thankful for my peeps, but right this minute it's hard to do when I'm being held hostage.  I am, however, very thankful for our big box outside that keeps us cooled.  I think it's called air conditioning.  

Like everywhere else in the US, we're sweltering in the heat (93 in the shade yesterday with a new point of 80).  For pitty sake, M only opens a window for me two times a day - early  morning and again at bedtime -  I get a whole 1 hour  each time to sit in the window.   It's really not enough window whiffing time.

The worst part is that I am not even allowed to go outside.   The big excuse is that it's too HOT!  Hiss!  Well, it isn't too hot for me cuz I could curl up under a bush in the shade.   But the silly humans think it's too hot for them to go out with me.   It's a rough life here pals.

Could someone come over and help me break out of this jail!

Join the blog hop - maybe a bunch of pals together can figure out a way to get me out of here.

Mario

P.S.  I'm really thankful for the blog hop cuz I like meeting new pals and going around to bloggies - when my peeps finally get around to it.

ON MY WAY.

Oh, wait a minute... my teleportation device is on the blink. Can you beam me over from your end?

We'll get you, my friend. We'll get you out.

Purrs,

Oh Mario, I hate to tell you this, but the Peeps are probably right, it is way too hot to go outside. But it isn't any fun to be in jail either. So we hope you get out of there. Give your Mom and Dad our very best and tell Mom we really need to go dancing pretty soon. Take care.

We have the hots, too. We don't even go out into the catio through the daytime. Thank toona your peeps know the impawtance of fresh window whiffies!

Have a cool and happy Thursday! ((hugs))

Cathy Keisha said...

It's just as hot here. Mario, you're an indoor cat so you should stay indoor. That's my motto. There are too many evils outside for us even on a leash. If you MUST do out, maybe your peeps can take you late at night or early morning when they'd open the window. My peeps are being held hostage. They can't make the 2 mile walk to the supermarket in this heat and they don't have a car.

Mario I am in the same jail! No window whiffies here either! We are having the same temps as you, mid 90s and super humid! We hate it! Love, Cody

BeadedTail said...

It's hot here too but we always have to stay inside the cool box so we think you'll find it much better than being out in the heat!

pumpkinpuddy said...

You get whiffin' windows twice a day? You're so lucky! I only get whiffin' windows once in a blue moon.

Katie Isabella said...

Oh Mario dear...come on over. Wait..no..mommy wont't let us out either same reason. Gee whiz! xox

The Furries of Whisppy said...

At least you are safe indoors AND have cooler air from the big box. :)

ABBY said...

Oh dear Mario I was in jail yesterday and now you!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We have the hots here too which is most unusual for the UK!! Enjoy yourbig cool box.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Mario, you could not be any cuter even though you're in jail. Our mom gets all crazy about kitties standing on their hind legs. Do you have a new header? It is strikingly beautiful, and shows off your tuxiness purrfectly. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Brian said...

Maybe it is time for you to just be the cool cat you are Mario!!!!!

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

I am grounded for life, and never allowed outside! So you are lucky you get to go out at all, Mario.

P.S. It has been pretty hot here in southern California, but nowhere near as bad as the rest of the country!

MizzBassie said...

Poor Mario! Oh, wait.... you get to go out sometimes? The only time I get to go out is when I take things into my own paws and _sneak_ out. My advice is to make the best of things. Enjoy the cool air inside while it lasts and look forward to going out when the heat lets up. Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrs.

MizzBassie said...

Forgot to say, I love your new blog design. Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrs.

Simba said...

It was too hot for us on the deck today. Our fur puts us cats at a real disadvantage.

CATachresis said...

Mario, buddy I'll be right over with my monkey wrench to break you out!! ;)

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Bibi-Chan, Gen-Chan, Vidock, Violette said...

You know what, Mario? We don't think you would enjoy being out in that much heat!

Purrs,
The Chans

McGuffy Ann said...

I am thankful you have parents`who love you and keep you safe. ~xo~

Tamago said...

I'm sorry Mario, that you can't go outside. But it is really hot! Your pawrents don't want you to melt in the heat. And it's great you do get window whiffies :-) Hopefully some cooler air is coming sometimes!

Swami Zoe said...

I would save you if I could! Maybe a daily day-ful yoga practice will help you manage your captivity! Me-Ommmmm

The Island Cats said...

Mario, it's the same thing here...'cept we don't get the windows opened at all!! We're getting cabin fever!!

Katnip Lounge said...

TOO HOT!!!????

You should get to go out for just a tiny bit and air out your furs!

Athena said...

I know how you feel. It's so hot here too and I have to stay indoors as well. But maybe that's not so bad because it is hotter outside than in and all I want to do is nap anyway. I haven't the energy to do anything.

Team Tabby said...

It has finally cooled for us, hope you get some relief from the heat in your area, Mario!!

Deb Barnes said...

Oh Mario! We sure do feel for you. We can't go outside either, but it's because the darn rain won't stop. But, even if it did, we live in Florida and it is way too hot this time of year for us to be outside, despite how much we try to convince the humans otherwise.

meowmeowmans said...

We're being held captive here, too, Mario. Of course, with the heat index being in the 100s, we are kind of okay with it. :)

Ann Staub said...

Aw poor kitty! It's funny but one of my old kitties refused to come in the house when summer came around. I don't really blame her though. It felt better out there than in the house last summer.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Ah, Mario, we feel for you. It's tough to be a prisoner. But it really is too hot outside.

Nerissa said...

Pssst. Don't look yet. Just act casual. There's a file in the bag of temptations. Use as needed.

Purrs,
Nissy

I feel for you buddy, those hots are really interfering with your outside time and window whiffies! We hope you get a break in the weather soon.

Mario, I hope you finally got out of the house. I am a very happy indoor cat so don't quite understand wanting out, but I can feel your frustration as a furriend...paw pats, Savannah
