It actually hit 124 degrees on my car's sensor. I'm trying to find a way to work remotely from the pool.

This would be the perfect time to go roadtrip up north, but a) no money and b) no PTO hours. I'm torn, I would love to roadtrip, even just a weekend trip, but I need to be financially prudent. Maybe later in the summer, we get three paychecks in August.

Did I mention that Ryan and I - despite being friends for 15 years or so - had never met until today? We had a great time, which involved airports and kittens, and he just texted me that the kittens landed safely, and charmed the entire flight crew. I'm so happy for them - humans and kitties.

We trapped mama and had her spayed, and trapped two of the five kittens. They're currently chilling in my guest room with the seven other kittens who are waiting for their speuter appointments.

We tried to get the others, but haven't been able to yet. They'll come out from their hiding place, but haven't ventured under the drop trap yet. Taking the next few nights off, since it's supposed to be 123 degrees!

I met another local cat lady, she needs some help to rescue five kittens in Avondale. The mama was dumped (pregnant) at the site of a feral colony that Liz feeds, and had five babies about a month or so ago. We'll take my drop trap out in the evenings to try and get them.

We are smack in the middle of kitten season, no joke. I'm fostering several litters for BARK (our rescue here in Buckeye), and several of my cat-lady friends are full, too. If people would get their pets spayed and neutered, the overpopulation problem wouldn't be nearly so bad.

But I have wonderful news! My friend Ryan, who lives outside of Chicago, fell in love with Daisy and Floofnugget, my two girls who just got spayed while I was away. And he has enough miles to fly out to Phoenix! So the girls are moving to the midwest. They got dropped off yesterday at PetSmart, so I'm calling first thing in the morning to have them put a giant "ADOPTED" sign on their kennel.

How on earth did it get to be June already?? It's my last month of being 42. Cats are well, human is well. I'm going to NJ on Tuesday for a long weekend, because Norm Lewis is starring in an environmental production of Sweeney Todd and - well, need I say more?
