The Australian summer has always been hot, hot hot: but I think this year could beat most we have had so far.
I leave the back door open for the cats to come and go as they please, during the cooler months, there is usually only 3-4 months of the year during which the flies are so bad that I have to shut cats outside and then let them back in when they ask. This year, its all starting much earlier.
I had a MONSTER blowfly come in yesterday and its only mid-September (supposedly the first month of Spring). The daytime temperatures are starting to really heat up, and I have begun using my airconditioning in the daytime already. I usually don’t start using that until the end of October.
I think we are in for a long, hot one.
