Thankful The Long Dry Spell Is Over

Hi Pals,

Finally - finally - finally I got outside.   We had a long dry spell of me not getting outside cuz my peeps were too lazy or non-caring to take me out. M says it's been too hot and humid and they can't stand to be out there with me - likely excuse. But a few days ago I just put my paw down and said TODAY I WANT OUT!    Would you believe, they actually listened!  I know, I can barely believe it myself.

You can see the grass wasn't all that lush green anymore either.  That cuz we haven't had rain until a couple of nights after I had been outside.  We were "dumped on (says M)"   I'm thankful I got outside again.  I'm also thankful the long hot, dry spell without rain has ended.  I love being a "loaf" in the grass, and the taller the grass, the more I love it under by belly.   It's much taller now and nice and green.  

We're thankful to @PepiSmartDog's mom for hosting this blog hop once again.  

Mario

Mario I am so happy you finally put your paw down!!!! Do you believe that I don't like going out? Mom tried twice but I didn't like it, so she hasn't tried again. Love, Cody

Our dad calls us grass gators when the grass is tall and we hunker down in it. Glad your humans finally came to their senses and took you outside. Hope they keep it up. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Sometimes moms forget they are to cater to our every need with no excuses! Glad M finally took you outside again! We don't ever get to go outside so we're still working on our mommy and that catering to our need thing.

Our Tommy (da toothless wunder purr) is trying to escape again to roam wild and free. Mom is keeping in a bedroom by himself but thinks he should have a kitten to play with. Is she crazy???? Purrs

I’m glad you got to lay in the grass Mario. I think you might need a Critter Condo so M doesn’t have to stay outside with you.

Mario, how lucky you got to go out. I rarely get to go out. This summer I think I got to go out once. That's so wrong. ~Wally

Oui Oui said...

We hope you enjoyed the outdoors, Mario. Our mom doesn't like being out in the heat and humidity either. She needs a good protecting fur coat like ours! MOL
