Blessings of a pet…

In the midst of a hectic day at work I got a call from Brian today. “Do you need a laugh?” Did I ever. Turns out my silly cat, with the partly grown out fur (up to almost 3 inches for the first time in a long time!) has been out on our balcony all day. But what’s so funny about this, you ask? It’s pouring rain. It’s been raining all day. It was raining when I let him out onto the balcony before leaving for work this morning. Truthfully, I didn’t expect him to go when I opened the screen door for him. I even made sure Brian was awake and aware that the cat was on the balcony and would probably want inside soon. So now, as I sit here trying to concentrate on the reports I have to get out today, all I can think of is this image of a sopping wet cat. Contentedly curled up on the balcony in the pouring rain.

Here’s to you Percy!

LOL!!! On the other hand, my one cat hates water so much that I've seen him *bounce* to avoid it. It's literally impossible to get him into a tub, for instance - he levitates! :)

Oh, Percy's the same way! If I tried to even get him into the bathroom, it involved sedation or scratches! That's part of why I found yesterday soooo funny!
