When Cats Bathe

Tonight when Matty had a bath, Rosie Rose Petal decided to join him.

There were several unsure moments and then ...

In she went. I only got one picture before she hopped back out.
You'd think the cat would learn. This is not her first swimming experience. And, she ALWAYS gets splashed when she is anywhere near the vicinity of Matt's bath.

Ahhhh ... you've gotta love cats!!!
You'd never get a picture of Mojo in the bath - she steers clear of the water as much as possible.

And, in other pet related news, when we got home tonight one of neighbour's dogs was roaming around. He is the sweetest Jack Russel. He came running up to us when he saw us walking down the path, and then tried to follow the boys to the grocery store.
His owner (who is always right there) was nowhere to be seen.
And, then the dog ran on to the road. It's a busyish road, and some cars luckily swerved to avoid him. I decided to bring the dog home. I just told him to come and he walked right with me. It turned out that the screen on his door came loose and the dog hopped right through the screen. It was one of those moments where you just feel good about life.
Everything was fine. His owner was really sweet about it too.

Yay-hoo for saving the dog! It's a good day.

And I am such a sucker for the baby in bathtub photo and then you add a cat to the mix - too cute!!

My tabby sits on the tub when I'm in the bath too. I'm just waiting for him to fall in sometime. That won't be pleasant :(

I had a cat once who would sit on the edge of the tub while I had a bath. He never dipped a toe in, though. (Smart cat.)

One of my cats loves to sit on the edge of the shower when I bathe. He always paws at the rags, bubbles, shampoo bottles, or whatever is in the tub, but he never gets in. He does, however, try to get in the toilet so we have to keep the lids closed!
