Ahhh yes…the joys of summer…
The only time bearable outside is in the morning or evening. We don’t let the cats out most of the time, but sometimes they get a treat and are allowed to go outside to roll around on the front porch. This seems to work out well because eventually they seem to get freaked out and want to go back in anyways. It makes me feel better knowing that they are not dying to go outside all the time. Once we accidentally left Fork outside for a few hours, and we found him crouched under the table on the porch, wanting to come back in desperately.

Diego likes to go out there too. We’ll take him for an occasional walk here and there early in the morning if it’s cool enough, but it is usually really early because it heats up fast. So we also get out on the front porch to hang out in short spurts. We know that we can duck inside when we see the tongue come out he really starts to pant. I feel so bad for him, because he loves to be outside. We are counting down the days until it cools down and we can start going on walks again.
