We had the worst heatwave in Belgium since 1901 ! The temperatures climbed to nearly 40°C (104 F) and the whole country was paralyzed ! We have no aircondition except in supermarkets, shops and cars, as we have never such high temperatures and certainly not for over a week !
Pookie tried to cool her old bones on the tiles and stayed inside. Fortunately the heat didn't harm her appetite. And of course each time one of us went into the kitchen she asked for food. We are happy about that because she starts to put on weight !
I had moved outside and sat under the Pergola with a ventilator. Arthur kept me company and enjoyed the ventilator too. Or he was laying exhausted on the table of the living room ! He even didn't do his walks through the neighborhood.
Rosie lay mostly on the terrace, and stretched from time to time her body
and rolled around ! Apparently she didn't bother about the heat, although she was too lazy to go on mouse or bird hunting !
Fortunately today it has cooled down to normal summer temperatures, and we are all waking up !
