So the high today is 90, and that's hot! Our pet friends are probably a little warmer than us humans are because, well they have fur and are lower to the hot ground!
So, as a cat owner, how can I keep my lil Gentleman Jack the Cat cool? By taking some cat food and water, mixing it, then sticking it in the freezer!
Or at least that's what gaining popularity in Japan!

The Twitter user @huhai_sinoalice came up with the idea when the AC went out in the house and the cats needed to stay cool

With some basic ice pop making forms, the cat food and water mixture must have been poured into the molds, then stuck in the freezer to harder over a few hours

First, using little wooden sticks and freezing the treat around it, but then stepping the cat popsicle game up by using tiny popsicle holders, that I'm fairly certain are only available in Japan because Japan has all the cute stuff that we can't find in Melbourne.

Maybe if Gentleman Jack the Cat is good when I get home I'll make this for him...until then I'll look back on one of his cutest moments when he cuddled and EMPTY bottle of Patron I had in my house in West Melbourne.
