We are suffering the heat at the moment , these 40 degree days are hideous, I know I should not complain but oooooh the heat.
It is so important in this weather to look after our animal friends.
It sounds like a crazy house but believe me its very clean and tidy , the kids think I have ocd with cleaning which yes I admit I do. But when it comes to animals I think if you keep them you must be responsible for them being comfortable.
So hence this hot hot weather I keep portable cages so they can be inside out of the heat wave.
I cant bare to think of an animal suffering in the heat, I feel sorry for the sheep and cows with no shelter from the sun.
Only today we heard of two goats out in a paddock with no water not far from us, so my daughter and I drove out and took water and some fresh cold greens for them. There was no shade or trees or even shelter for the goats, there was no water in the troughs in the paddock and there had not been water yesterday either. A friend of ours rang the rspca and they said they couldnt do anything until next week. I really think that is digusting.
My daughter climbed over fence and took them water and sprayed them with water bottle we took the risk of getting arrested being on somebody elses property, yes it was wrong but so is keeping animals that you dont look after.
Anyway after we braved the heat to go and do that we were back home to keep our pets cool.
We have all been sleeping down stairs as its like a oven upstairs at my house.
So far I have given 6 Indian Head massages.
The garden so desperately needs some attention , but watering is all Im going to give it until this weather cools down.
I hope everybody is coping ok in this heat xx
