It's HOT here. We're hanging around 99-100 every day. So to help out our wild friends we're putting out big bowls of water and keeping them filled. The birds and squirrels seem grateful but Rocket has been showing up in the early afternoons and after taking long drinks, she soaks herself in the cool water. Then she takes a nap on the shady part of the porch. On July 1st she brought her new family to have a little picnic. There are four of them and I've named them Mayhem, Chaos, Bedlam and Fish.
