dog days

Who says the “dog days of summer” are just for dogs?

Actually, in checking Wikipedia,  it’s defined as the hottest most sultry days between July and September.  But why dog days?  Why not cat days?  Wikipedia explains that the term comes from the belief that the hot days came from Sirius, the Dog star in the constellation  Canis Major.  Apparently a very hot star, but somehow it takes away from my cute story and the fact that Scrappy would like it to be called the “Cat Days” of summer.
