Tuxie Tuesday
Where there's smoke . . . there's fire . . .

We always has da weather report 
at da bottom of our bloggie.

I am furried worried about our California kitty famblies. There are some horrible wildfires raging throughout our state.

There were an unprecedented number of lightening strikes (5,000-6,000) over da weekend which started over 800 fires! It has been furry smokey outside. We thought it wuz just fog, but when Mommakitty opened da front door yesterday morning, we realized it was smoke!

Da closest ones to us are in Napa, Sonoma (where we live), Mendocino, Solano and Sacramento counties. Our friends Tara & Kavan live near Sacramento, and Max & Buddah live in Solano county. Diva Kitty and her fambly are probably seeing smoke too. There are so many fires, da firefighters have to just ignore some of them cuz they don't gots enough equipment or firefighters. Da Governator is calling in da National Guard to help out.

We hopes da beans and citters all stay inside where it's safe and they don't have to inhale da smokes outside. Some of Mommakitty's employees stayed home today cuz they had bad allergies or asthma problems cuz of all da smoke. Please purray fer all da famblies and critters (domestic and wild) in our state . . . and fer all da brave firefighters too.

To read more about da fires

P.S. - Skeezix also reports smoke in his town of Castro Valley (east bay area) and Honey P. Sunshine reports smoke in Rocklin (near Sacramento).

Those fires are so worrisome. It's crazy to see all the fires in the the west, and the flooding in the midwest -- if they could only get together it'd all be OK. But it's all so destructive. I just hope no one loses their homes. Please keep us posted.

Fires is bad but furs is good, so fires and furs should never mix 'cause they smell really bad... I shall keep my paws crossed that they are all safe and none of them got singed furs either!

We're worried about all of friends near the fires, too. A lot of them have been near our former hometown, Santa Cruz.
Things are OK here in the city, though there was a small one in a nearby town over the weekend. Hopefully everyone stays safe!

There's been LOTS of smoke here, but my people report that today and yesterday were not as bad as the day before. Still, because the Woman has "issues" they're keeping the house closed up and the a/c running, because for some reason she enjoys breathing.

The scary thing is all the wind... Solano county is typically windy and it can't be helping the fire fighters get the one near us under control. And even then, once they do, they have to go help with another fire. These poor guys are gonna be run ragged this fire season, and it's barely started!

Bogdan, the editor said...

I'm a reporter, so I should report that there is smoke in our sky, too, in Atascadero, because of the fire near King City. California is very smokey every where right now. We also hope every kitty will be safe. The fires worry the Investor. My offices are in a high-fire-risk area. She is nervous about this fire season being so bad already.

The M's said...

Oh, please do stay safe. We hope de put out the fires quickly.

Hi Sabi,....Missy

Lux said...

O mancat! I sure hope all those fires get put out soon. Sending rainy thoughts ...

Anita said...

Oh my God! We hope that the fires are extinguished soon. It´s very sad to see the nature to burn.

The Meowers from Missouri said...
