High Humidity and Storm's a'comin!

My a/c has been keeping me very cool and comfortable now that summer has arrived. In fact, earlier today, I was really cold, but that is never a problem, especially in summer months! I needed to run downstairs quickly to check mail and the second I stepped outside my apartment, the humidity hit me like a big, heavy truck! It almost took my breath away! By the time I got back up here, I felt like I needed a shower! ugh! It's really awful out there and my thoughts go out to anyone without a/c today. It clouded up about an hour ago and a couple I met in the elevator told me that a storm is coming our way. As usual, they were hoping a storm would cool things off. I'm not so concerned at this point. Not sure yet whether my new little kitty will be coming home on Tuesday. I'm finishing up plugging up all the places I can find where he can hide his little self in there. My only concern (mainly for me) is that I will have to keep the door closed in the bedroom once he's home, and the a/c is in the living room. Of course, I have a large fan in the bedroom, and my niece reminded me that, at the shelter, the animals don't have a/c, so he should be comfortable in there. I'm not so sure I will be, but I will see how much I can keep the door open and still keep him contained, so some of the cool air can come through. Should be interesting! lol

He's only about two months old and fits in the palm of my hand. So, for the time being, I've been advised to keep him in only one room so he can adjust to his surroundings. Once he grows a bit, I can introduce him to the rest of the place and let him explore and take over.

One option might be to put him in a kitty crate for the nighttime if you're concerned he will leave the safety of your room. If it's a baby kitten maybe it has yet to learn how to jump or climb and if that's the case maybe a baby gate would do, or something you could move in front of the door that would allow the air to still circulate?
