Cats know where it’s at

Basking

Honey certainly does. And where it’s at is anywhere that sunshine is coming in through the window. Preferably through a closed window so it’s even hotter on her side.

I was thinking the other day that cats must have an absolutely insane tolerance for heat. Seeing as they don’t sweat (I think except from the pads of their feet, like dogs) and you rarely see them panting, except when they’re not well. And even when it’s stinking hot they tend to seek out the warm areas of the house. So of course I looked it up on wikipedia and apparently a cat’s average body temperature is between 38 and 39 °C, and they’re in trouble above 39.5 °C. So there you go.

So Photo Project, what day are we up to? 35 or something? I’ve skipped about four I think…
