Waterworks

Smutty wants a swimming pool.  I know, most people think cats don’t like water.  This is not true.  Cats don’t like to be surprised by water.  They don’t like to be splashed, sprayed or washed.

But we love to walk through puddles.  A small wading pool is just the ticket on a hot day.  We can take a drink or dip our paws in the water to cool off.  If it is very hot, we might even step in and back out again.  Cats just want options.  We like everything under our control, not being forced to be in water for human convenience.

Now, I’ll take my nap and dream of my pool under a shady tree surrounded by catmint…
