For starters, there's the heat! If you pups and kit-cats think it's hot where you live, look up the temps in Northern Cyprus and see what Nikki has to deal with! Fortunately, her mom and dad have a fan set up just for her, to help keep her cool.
She wears a "cool tie" around her neck to help her cool down. It also makes her look MIGHTY fashionable! Ha roo roo roo!
When we last p-updated you on Nikki, we told you about cows trying to invade her home. Now it's gotten worse. Here's what she had to say! "I was looking over Mom's shoulder and saw a post to your blog about how woo have to do 'cat duty' and thought I would send woo a picture of one of the cats that 'lurk' around our house."
Yikes! Huffle warned us about the orange ones! As Nikki said, "Now is that a face with attitude? I have to keep an eye on this particular kitty as she (yes, it is a she!) comes and sticks her paw into MY Kong and pinches MY treats!! Even wolfie teeth don't chase her away. She can run very fast! She comes into the house at night and Mom finds paw prints all over the counter tops in the kitchen!"
In the house?!!? Trying to steal your treats?!!? What an outrage. Come to think of it, we did catch an orange kitty trying to break into our place! Maybe it was the same one! As Nikki told us, "A Sibie's work is never done!" Amen, sister!
Hmm. That one's mighty cute. Truth be told, the orange one was pretty cool-looking, too... even if she does have cat-attude.Nikki said this picture could well explain why the kitties are hanging out at her place:
That's right ... Nikki's mom is putting food out for them! Nikki tries to guard the milk dish from the cats. She told us, "Mom has to come and fetch me and tell me to 'leave the poor kitties alone'!" Our mom would probably do the same think, Niks. With our blessings. (At least those of Storm and Zim.) Poor little kit-cats are hungry and have no home of their own!
Anyroo... when it gets WAY too hot at the house...
Woo is me!
...Nikki and her bipeds get into the car and head for a cooler spot! She showed us these great pictures from a recent trip into the mountains!
How beautiful! Doesn't that even LOOK a lot cooler!?! We bet it was Nikki's idea!Here are Nikki and her dad, taking a rest together:
What a beautiful, shady spot! Looks like they had a little picnic or something! Eventually, it was time to head home. Here's what the road was like:
WOWZERS! We wonder if Nikki got to drive!?!?
Nikki said her mom held her breath the whole way down! Ha rooooo!
What great adventures you have, Nikki! And what hard work you have, guarding the house (and your treats!) from intruders! Try to stay cool, friend! For all you do, we salute you!
