The Muggy Mog lands in Italia

Oh. My. Cod. This mog thought he knew muggy, but he was wrong.

The three of us - Heather, her boyfriend and I - flew out this morning from a rather cool and rainy London Stansted airport. The plane ride went smoothly, I fit in a little snooze, and we even got a nice view of the snowy capped Alps as we dove down towards Turin. 

The Turin Alps

Little did we know what awaited us on the other side...

No sooner had the stewardess opened the door than a waft of sticky air filled the plane. It was nearing 40 degrees. It was scorchingly sunny. It was humid. And I shed about two tons of fur in a matter of seconds. We were wondering why we'd even come back.

Thankfully, there is more to a country than just its temperature. (Tell that to any Canadian cat, for example. He'll agree!) It is the peo-pals and the ani-pals you know that make all the difference! I mean, just look at how happy my old pal Taddeo was to see us home! 

Ciao Fluffy!! You came back to casa!!
Did you bring me a regalino from Wales? Like...Welsh catnip? Huh huh?
I wunder if I can jump though these bars?
Despite the heat, I think I'm happy to be back with my Italian furriends again. We've got a lot of mice hunting, squirrel chasing, and plant pot breaking to catch up on!

This is Fluffy signing off and wishing you all a buona sera! Meow!

Hi Fluffy! Glad you've all arrived home safe and sound. We could pass on the 40C heat/humidity, though. We've already had that here this summer. LOL.

At least the humidity will be good for your furs. Meow from Malaysia!

How wonderful that you could go on overseas holiday with your mom! I am forever stuck in these shores since once I leave I would never be able to get back in again because Australia quarantines all furries for 6 months on entry and I am too old to withstand that sort of ordeal.
