Drip-Dry, the Devon

Cast your peepers on Drip-Dry, the Devon (that’s Devon Rex, to all you mere peasants that don’t know your cat breeds!).

Yes, he’s a cat. And, no, he doesn’t seem to share the antipathy to water evidenced by most cats. In fact, Drip-Dry is simply wild about water. Just about the time his pelt begins to dry out and form those crinkly marcelled waves so distinctive of his breed, Splash!, he’s back in the sink or the fish bowl or the tub or the nearest toilet!

As a result, I’ve gotten used to puddles scattered all about the apartment. (And thankfully they are not the kind of cat puddles one normally needs to approach with cleansers, solvents, haz-mat suit, stainless steel carpet brush, and spare O2 tank.)

I’m considering getting a very large aquarium. It’s not that my goldfish need a more expansive domain; it’s just that they might appreciate not having to share their underwater coral grotto with a 4-1/2 pound cat every night.

      Miracle loves to drink from any available water glass, no matter how tight a squeeze it is for his head to fit. Leo laps from any available tilet bowl, while Sloan loves pawing ice cubes out of your drink.

      POOR KITTY!!!! I remember when I was young and I couldn't figure out why my kitty, Maxwell, jumped into a full Sudsy tub of water (after I got out,of course). It took a whole hour for Mom to blowdry him dry. He did NOT look happy!

      That's a small cat who like mine is not afraid of water although mine doesn't just in to water he just sticks his head under the bath room water facet.
