How to stay cool on Canada Day

1. Find a shaded spot and just chill there.
2. Don't move much
3. When you have to move, drink water

How are you beating the heat?

Happy Canada Day from the Chirpies

The best way to beat the heat, do nothing and just lie there.

Sunday Selfies in the heat

Happy Canada Day to all our Canadian kitty furriends and their humans! 

As we celebrate Canada Day, we will always remember how we ended up joining the Chirpies. My brother and I were found alone in our apartment when our former humans moved and left us. We don’t want to dwell on the past, because we are so happy that this is our forever home. But if you like, you can read all about how we came to live at the Chirpy Cats house.

Staying cool

We thought we would dust off our Canada Day hats and do some Sunday selfies today. And we also have a surprise Sunday selfie with our human, The Lady Cat. We’re trying to stay cool in this heatwave but temperatures are reaching 42 degrees Celsius (111 Fahrenheit) with the humidex, phew!

The Lady Cats says it’s okay to post her picture because she doesn’t have her braces anymore. She says it feels so good to eat now. I hope I don’t ever need braces because that sounds awful not to be able to chew my treats properly!

Check out our video with our warm Canada Day shout out from the Chirpy crew!

What’s it like where you are? How are you staying cool? For now, I think I’ll go back inside and join Jimmy Fancy Feet. He’s lying belly-up directly under a ceiling fan! Smart kitty he is!

After a long break from Sunday selfies, we’re happily hopping with the Kitties Blue on their Sunday Selfie blog hop! Check out the selfies below by clicking on their badge!

  • So delighted to have you on the hop today, and you all look amazingly adorable in your Canada hats. Both your mom and her teeth look gorgeous. That temperature sounds dreadful. We definitely would be in the house in the A/C and not on the catio if it was that hot here. Hope it cools down for you very soon. Thanks for hopping over to see us. Happy Canada Day!

    • Awe thank you! In the end, we came inside in the A/C one by one and did what Jimmy did – find a ceiling fan and lie belly-up. mol

    • Oh the Mom says thank you! 🙂 And us cats as you know work with strange logic: we know it’s cooler in the AC inside but we still want to be in the catio. MOL

  • Happy Canada Day to you all!
    It was stinking hot here too…UGH. Our peeps decided to not go to the local balloon festival and air show, on account of the terrible heat. So they got to stay home in the nice AC with us:)

    Love those Canada Day Hats! Whenever the petcretary is in Canada to visit her family she tries to get things to help us have the Canadian celebratory days too…but hse has not ever seen hats like those!

    Thanks for visiting our blog!

    • It’s nice meeting you furriends! Our humans also just stayed home. But that has more to do with the silly construction on the bridge (again) so traffic plus the heat is enough to deter any human. Besides, it’s so much better staying home with the kitties as we provide free entertainment, forget that Jazz festival! MOL

      PS: The Lady Cat made these hats for us 🙂

  • Happy Canada Day, to you ALL! Seems like everyone is having it way too hot, but you have the best idea and thats taking a day off and chillin’, which of course makes for excellent easies and selfies too…. just wish we could have seen Jimmy’s selfie!

  • Mew Mew Happy Canada Day! You look s0-o patriotic in your hats & grr-eat poses too! Your momma looks even more be-au-ti-ful with her new smile! CONCATS to her for getting her braces off. OMFP (oh my furry paws) you do have hot temps where you’re at! I wish I could send some ORE-gon rain to help cool things off, but we haven’t seen any since mid June. I can send you some cool evening breezes thought. We’re getting lots of those. Kisses.

  • OMC that was just the CUTEST EVER!!!! I must talk to Cody, I can’t believe your kitties kept their hats on! I put a hat on Cody on the weekend to take 4th of July photos and he had that sucker OFF in seconds! Your catio looks just delightful and I LOVE your water fountain. Such a darling post! Happy belated Canada Day!! xoxo
