Tuesdays With Russell.

We just hung out today. The smoke was kinda bad during the day today but it's not terrible at the moment--we've got the cooler on!



This is a pretty scary wildfire (one of four in AZ at the moment). Even though it's hundreds of miles away from us, we're still worried about the people who live there and all the animals and birds who now don't have homes anymore. Mom said it's at 0% containment, covering 311,000 acres and is now the second worst fire in AZ history. To compare, it's more than six times the size of the worst fire in our history, the Cerro Grande Fire of 2000, which at 47,000 acres we feared would never be extinguished.

Please send purrs to the evacuees, the firefighters and all helping out there.
