Monday Time Outs

Smutty found the greatest cat pics ever on Facebook over the weekend and wanted to share.  Don’t view these while you’re drinking your coffee or it may come out your nose while you’re laughing.

Never Mind the Election, Watch Out For the Robots!

With the last major hurdle overcome, robots can now begin their planned takeover.  Some idiot has taught them to climb stairs.  Now there’s nowhere to run.

At least we felines can still climb trees.  So, don’t go teaching them that!  Smutty already has his post picked out.  Good luck.

And the Superhero Treats Keep Coming

OK, Smutty has already started his Christmas wish list.  Marvel has a great new way to package the superhero movies; in a S.H.I.E.L.D. briefcase!  Aughhhhh, September can’t get here fast enough.

But wait, there’s more; it comes with a Tesseract.  A Tesseract!  Who wouldn’t want one of these?  A cube of unlimited energy that can cross dimensions.  Everyone who wants to become Supreme Emperor of the Universe needs one of these.

Quick where do I input my human’s credit card number?  Before the dog rats me out.

Total Recall Reboot

In a summer of reboots, the unlikely candidate Total Recall is getting a new life.  Starring Colin Farell in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s role, the new version offers super slick FX.  The movie is not blockbuster material, especially following Avengers, Spiderman and Dark Knight, but should offer solid escapist fun.

Enjoy the summer and don’t forget your furry family members.

Superhero Summer Domination Continues with The Dark Knight Rises

Well, we’ had Avengers, Amazing Spiderman and now, The Dark Knight Rises.  Theatre, Theatre in the Mall, who will be the biggest Superhero movie of them all?  While Smutty is betting on Avengers, the heat wave may work in favor of the more recent releases as people with no power look for ways to hide out during the hottest parts of the day.  We’ll all see on July 20.

Don’t forget your pet needs to keep cool too, so sneak Fido or Fluffy in a purse or find a pet-friendly mall or cinema.

Cool Off with Ice Age Continental Drift

Scrat and friends are back with more cool fun for families.  Smutty admires Scrat’s ability to avoid death with all the accidents he has and causes.  But the ice and water settings will cool you off even more than the theatre air-conditioning.

So grab the family (don’t forget the dog and cat), and head for the nearest movie theatre on July 13.  Smutty can smell the popcorn now.

Spiderman Swings Back Into Action

Smutty recommends The Amazing Spiderman for family fun this holiday – PG 13 rating for parents of super-youngsters.

And of course, movies are a great way to stay out of the heat.  Now, if Spidey would just grow up and join the Avengers, everything would be perfect.

Exercise is Not Optional

Cats and Dogs know that the weather is hot and we nap a lot to save energy.  But, cats and dogs also take time to romp and get a little exercise when it cools off a little.  Smutty reminds humans that exercise is important even when the weather is hot.  Schedule time in the early morning or late evening and drink plenty of water.

And don’t forget to drop a couple of ice cubes into the pet water dish.  They will appreciate it.

Stay cool, and when it is hottest, take a nap.
