I was thinking exactly the same thing, but I've just been going off about driving distances, so I thought I'd better not bring temperature into it!! Thought we'd better not come across as smart**** Antipodeans.... but oh, the heat.......  :thumbsup:

Hope I'm not rubbing salt in Bart's wounds but I have an addition to the family today - a rescue cat I have named Tommy (Rock opera, Bo-Bo electric loco class 76 I think, and English moggy)

Poor devil is finding the heat too much and moulting greatly (bit like his owner) :sweat:

Nicely marked beast Mick but he looks a bit overweight  :food:

Not that I can make any claim to have a svelte frame  :-[

I hope you and George enjoy each others company and grow old and grumpy together  :D

cheers John.

Umm, the cat's name is Tommy, John.
Not sure I'd want George living with me. :no:
He'd be saying it's always too cold ;)

I am going back to bed for an hour, can't get a sleep with this heat  :veryangry:

Apologies to Tommy, I do not know how I managed to get that wrong  :-[

Hang on a Minute....

I hope He (Tommy) is not one of those notorious "FAT CATS" that I have heard about.  Does he come with a decent pension ?.....

Absolutely distraught today as Tommy had a heart attack last night and I have had to take the decision this morning to not let him suffer further :'(

I really feel for you Mick, for this to happen just as you are getting used to each other your heartache must be awful.

You may think this crazy but if you can get another rescue cat straight away, it does help with the pain, I know this from experience.  When my old Siamese cat went to the vets and did not come home, that afternoon I went and got a rescue kitten.  I was too busy looking after and being pestered by the kitten it kept my mind off of my loss.
