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.
