As we have bid farewell to the dog days of summer, let's say hello to the feline days of autumn!! Ok, I know that is not a thing...but I love the photograph!!
Did you know that to the Greeks and Romans, the "dog days" occurred around the day when Sirius appeared to rise just before the sun, in late July. They referred to these days as the hottest time of the year, a period that could bring fever, or even catastrophe....see there is a 'cat' reference!!
Moving swiftly along.....
