Sunny Sunday Video

Today was a lovely summer day. We closed the balcony door for a few hours while the heat was the worst, but later opened it up again. Murli and Samantha enjoyed themselves out there, relaxing. Thanks to the two umbrellas and the tall fence on the side, there is shade covering the whole balcony.

Tilted umbrellas in the late afternoon, when I took the video

Hopefully, the coming week will be a good one for us and everyone else!

Big Hugs!

    1. Aww glad you enjoyed the video! Yes, we all really enjoy it on our balcony. It turned out pretty comfy with the umbrellas and everything else we put up for shade. The cats also have a really soft mat underneath their blankies. It’s so nice to see them enjoying themselves 😊
      Thank you for your nice comment! πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you! I’m glad you liked the video! It was indeed a very relaxing and calm afternoon on our balcony. Lovely to hang out on our balcony with the kitties πŸ˜‰

  1. Those umbrellas’ are wonderful Natascha!! You have such a lovely set-up there. I use an umbrella I can attach to the Condo to give BellaDharma shade in the morning.
    It is very stuffy an humid out today. Waiting for the rain to clear the air….it is 30 Celsius & feels like 37 C which in Fahrenheit which is 86 with Humidex of 98.6!! EEKKKK! I’m melting……lol…
    It is cool in the apartment so windows are shut to keep humidity out for now.
    The girls look so relaxed out on their catio patio!

    1. Oh yes, they are great! I chose blue ones, not only because I love blue, but because the light isn’t as glaringly bright underneath with them. But I do absolutely love that blue lol! Yes, it turned out very comfy and nice on our balcony. It’s perfect with the shade from the umbrellas now. And with the railing cover and the tall wooden fence on the southern end of the balcony, we have full shade! I love sitting out there with everyone 😊 Would be fun if you could come by to hang out for a bit as well!

      Aww that’s great you can attach an umbrella for the condo! Must be nice for her 😊

      Ugh, I hear you about the high humidity…😣 We’ve had that yesterday, just like you described, same temperature and everything. It was so yucky! Awfully humid. But then over night some strong north wind came through, which cleared the air. It brought thick overcast as well. So today was quite cool, not humid and very windy with total overcast. Still, Murli hung out on the balcony a lot. As did I.

      I really hope the air did clear for you and you’re feeling more comfy πŸ’• High humidity is YUCK!

      Thank you so much for your comment. Big hugsπŸ’ž! And lots of purrs from the kitties to you both πŸ˜½πŸ˜½πŸ˜½πŸ’•

      1. Hello Natascha the humidity finally left. We have had glorious warm sunny weather & rain at night sometimes. I wish it could be like this from May til October….
        I LOVE how you have the balcony done as a “Catio”. You are very creative. I KNOW Murli, Samantha & sonic love their special place. And to sit out with them sounds heavenly.
        BellaDharma goes out in small Condo twice a day & I sit out with her to keep her safe. (Upstairs neighbor who tossed 2nd cat off balcony is on warpath against me.) I wish I could move to Senior Building only 3 blocks away but I have to be 65 to even apply. Living here is a nightmare sometimes……too much of the time……I’d love to sit out with you….if only I was much closer…..lol…..
        Give the Kitties kisses from me & purrsss from BellaDharma

        1. Hey Sherri-Ellen and BellaDharma πŸ˜‰πŸ˜ΊπŸ˜ΊπŸ˜Ί So glad the humidity is gone for you! It’s really awful when it’s like that… Ugh. We’ve just had the worst humidity from last Sunday to Wednesday. It was so humid, the air just felt thick and yucky and I constantly felt sticky in some way outside. Inside the apartment, the humidity was of course much higher than normal as well, but at least it’s not been hot inside. But it was pawful for sure. Hopefully it won’t be getting badly humid again for you sweeties and for the weather to stay nice like that!

          Aww thank you! I always have fun doing things in the apartment and for the cats. I will probably do even more over time until the whole apartment is purrfect πŸ˜‰

          Oh dear God no! Who would do something like that. What a sick human! Sending love to you and purrayers.

          I’m so sorry people make it such hell for you. It’s not fair. You have so much to deal with already, your home and everything surrounding it should be a safe place. Wish I could do something to help you move to a safer place.

          Would be wonderful to have you living next doors to us, in the same building on the same floor or something. Or above us, so we could always talk easily from our balconies. I’d absolutely love to sit out with you and BellaDharma and everyone.

          Yeah, would be awesome if we would be closer…
          Kisses & purrs from all 3 kitties and big hugs πŸ’•πŸ˜ΊπŸ˜ΊπŸ˜ΊπŸ’•

          1. Hello Natascha & Ralph & Kitties Three: Our Summer is cooling off nicely & is much more bearable. Mind you we have been getting more rain….but that is to be expected in September. At least this year so far we have ACTUALLY HAD 3 seasons! So not complaining, lol….
            I would love to relocate but on my Senior Pension & Widow Pension I do not have enough to do that. Once I turn 65 I CAN apply to the only Senior building in town (about 3 blocks north of me)…The waiting list is long…..
            As for the woman on warpath; this was the 2nd of her 2 cats to be tossed off balcony. I was able to capture #1 & Sheila & I took that poor darling to Shelter. The day b4 #2 went off balcony the woman came to me for help & I said we could surrender the cat to Shelter & I would pay Surrender fee…..so you can imagine my shock & hurt to find #2 cat down on the ground scared out of her mind. WE all tried to catch her but she bolted. When the owner caught #2 she clawed her & growled such an unearthly noise the owner let go…..#2 ran around between our 2 buildings & has vanished. After 3 weeks of looking for #2 we have all given up; hoping she found herself a new place to live…..This REALLY did my nerves in & my Blood Pressure! I refuse to speak to the woman….never again……
            And it would be lovely to have ‘normal’ cat loving neighbors for sure!!!!
