Hey, Where’s Rocky?

moose in poolSmutty can’t stop laughing.  A moose landed himself in a swimming pool.  Yes, a moose in a pool.

Somehow the moose ended up in the backyard of a human and then tried to run the human down.  Now, in the wild, the moose would have been the obvious winner of the confrontation.  But in the human world, there are many traps for wild animals.  The swimming pool was a danger the moose did not see coming.

Once the moose fell in the pool, he did not even have sense enough to come out by himself.  It took 9 humans to pull him out.  I bet this moose thinks twice before wandering out of the woods again.

But the moose did get the last laugh, the damage he caused to the pool and fence will cost the human a few thousand to repair.  Take that, civilization!


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…
