Really Random Tuesday: Cairo in the Chives (Kitty Pic)

It’s too hot in my office (28°C, which is 80°F!) and my brain is melting, but I wanted to share another Cairo pic with you today. Here she is investigating the chives (the only plant that survived the winter on our balcony):

She likes to chew on them (which is unfortunately usually followed by her throwing them up in our hallway). I love the shadow she’s casting in this pic! (Click on photo to enlarge.)

  1. Avis, thank you for doing RRT. I will of course link to this post the next time I do it. :)

    Cairo is such a cutie, even if he doesn't realize that chive chewing will make him sick!

  2. You can tell Cairo is up to something. I hope you get relief from the heat soon.

  3. Well, at least he has good tastes. Chives are yummy even if they don't agree with poor Cairo. I hope your heat breaks soon (though in my neck of the woods 80 is a mild day).

  4. You should get Cairo her own catnip plant. That is obviously what she is telling you here.

  5. AWW! Cutie! I hope it didn't result in too much hallway mess!

  6. She's adorable! I love how focused she is on her task. It amazes me how cats eat many green things that cause them to throw up...and they do it again and again...!

  7. Thanks, Suko! And now I've posted another RRT post this week! Yeah, you'd think she'd learn, but no...

    Thanks, Vivienne. I think she's the cutest cat ever, but then I'm a bit biased! :)

    Kathy, unfortunately, it's probably only going to get hotter! (Can you tell I'm not a big fan of the heat?)

    Martha, Cairo actually eats more of those chives than we do (and she's not very impressed when I pick her chives!)

    Ti, you're probably right!

    Thanks, Kathleen!

    Meg, unfortunately, she always does leave us a mess, but hopefully we find it before we step in it...

    Amy, I know, you'd think she'd learn but no such luck! (She's also a fan of fennel leaves and they don't seem to make her sick.)
