There is an old Arab expression that, “The heat of the day can be told by the length of the cat.” In Winter, cats curl up into tight heat-saving balls. However, now that sweltering Summer is here, cats stretch to their full Length.
This is Lubby, a 14 year-old Ragdoll stretched out on the couch. In the background you can make out his bunny friend, Sunshine, also stretched out.
About two years ago Sunshine the Bunny was tossed out of a car window at a busy intersection in New Jersey. He was rescued and now lives happily with the Gentle Woman. Like his friend the cat, he has learned to stretch out on a hot day.
