Planning Mischiefs - Caturday Art and Sunday Selfies with Shimshi

Hallo again, Effurrybuddies and Shavua Tov (a Good Week) to you all!







Last week was furry Hot.
This week is going to be Even Hotter!
Mummy has the shutters rolled down to keep the room cool. Purrsonally, I think it wouldn't hurt to have the Air Conditioning on, but it's rather noisy. Besides which, Mummy read something about how people who sit directly under A/C units are more likely to catch the Evil Chinese Virus because the droplets are blowing about in the air.  Other people have said that's nonsense.  Mummy says She doesn't know what to believe any more and it's better to be safe than sorry. And Grandpaw says that in any case, it's not healthy to sit directly under the A/C and Mummy agrees because one can end up with a pain in the neck and shoulders that way. Anyway, if Mummy opens the big window at one end of the living room, and the window at the far end also, we can catch a nice breeze because We are quite high up, facing a valley.




You may wonder what I am doing in this picture. Trixie and Caspurr say that when the weather is as hot as this (30 C and upwards), there is really no point in doing anything, except snoozing. But some of Us have impawtant duties to attend to and the fact that it's hotter than hell even hotter than usual does not mean that these duties can be neglected. I, for instance, am Master of the Queen's Mischiefs, as you know and I am constantly giving thought to devising new, and effur more destructive Mischiefs. That is what I am doing in this picture, which is Our Entry in the Sunday Selfies blog hop hosted by the sweet Kitties Blue and their HuMom, Janet.  

Here is their badge: 

  


You can no doubt tell, from my furry intense expression, how hard I am working to concoct some really Spectacular New Mischief.

As you no doubt recall, We also purrticipate effurry week in the Caturday Art blog hop, hosted by the Beautiful and Wise Athena and her HuMum, Marie.  Here is their badge:






We went to LunaPic for assistance with Our Art this week, and since there are so many beautiful Art Effects there and We found it difficult to decide, We opted for a Collage Art effect, comprised of (clockwise from top left) Picasso, Tuscany, Nouveau and Psychedelic - the whole, surrounded by the gaudiest richest frame Mummy could find. What do you think?




Now, I believe I can hear Mummy calling Us for lunch (and if She isn't, She ought to be!) so I must be off. I will try to visit as many of you as pawsible later in the day - and if I don't manage, then later in the week. Meanwhile, take care of yourselves and your Humans, purrtect them from the Evil Virus which still stalks the streets and Be Well.

Purrs.

Brian said...

You look darn cute and ready for a snooze! It has been crazy hot here too but we can't do without our air conditioning!

meowmeowmans said...

Try to stay cool, Shimshi! It is super hot here, too, but we have the air conditioning on.

Catscue Catmom said...

Good to hear you're not too worn out to cause mischief Shimshi!

David Kessler Author said...

Why not switch on the air conditioner and then NOT sit directly under it.

Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty said...

Sorry it's too hot for you there.

It doesn't always get too hot here in England but when it does Mum absolutely hates it. I'm not a fan either!

Timmy Tomcat said...

Nothing like a good snooze to think up what trouble we can get into MOL

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

Our mom doesn't know what to believe these days, either. We're on the third floor so we think the ac is safe for us. Thank goodness, because we're having a heatwave! Oh, and you look so cute!

Little Binky and Granny said...

All the art effects make a lovely collage.

You look rather cozy! We're SO tired of the summer heat.

Mickey's Musings said...

Long time since we dropped in. Nice to hear you are all doing well even in this heat. We have the hots and yesterday we even had a short thunder shower! Today was cloudy and not so hot.
WE purr you get some coolness too.
We really like the artwork!
Purrs, Georgia and Julie

Unknown said...

You look like you are melting slowly into sleep!

Cathy Keisha said...

Whoa! That's some art! Nice. We have the ac on. TW was worried but we have a 13MERV filter and that's supposed to be the best at capturing all kinds of droplets. Now you'd better go to lunch.

Lone Star Cats said...

Stay cool! We've got the A/C on, ya need it in Texas!

World of Animals, Inc said...

We hope that you are able to stay cool during these summer hot days. You look mighty cozy there with your comfortable pillow. Thanks for sharing the lovely artwork. Have a great rest of your week.

Did you make good the mischief during the night when its a lot cooler??

Wonderful collage of your art!

Its hot 30C and hotter even, here too. And no rain, everything is brown and crunchy...sigh...

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Marley, and Laz) said...

We live in 72F in the house and 95F outside. But sometimes "outside" is worth it fer the birds an squirrels...

The Indulged Furries said...

I think if you're sitting in the a/c in your own home, you're safe.... from your own germs. :-)
I love your collage art this week.

Greg_1948 in_WA said...

Every year they say it is hottest year ever! Probably depends on where you live if you are hot or not. We are hot too. I thought air conditioners had a filter inside, but I do not know for certain as I don't have one! Cats here lying about trying to be cool as well.

A through breeze is as good as anything when the temp is up up up! You will be OK with the aircon on, I know Mrs H can't be without it, and with the pollen count so high it saves adding more pollen to the room with the windows open.
Keeping up your role in the order of things, even in a heatwave, is so very important. To make sure that folks appreciate what you're doing, I write a list and pin it to the sofa, bed, or door, and it advises that I am busy considering revisions to the work schedule and shouldn't be disturbed ;)
Purrs and cool breezes to you all!
