Hot Tub Adventures

After talking with @CathyKeisha today, i decided i'd write about my hot tub adventures. For all of you with kinky thoughts, get your minds out of da gutter, it was really not as fun as it sounds. In fact, it wasn't fun AT ALL! First let me explain how our house is set up so you can better understand the whole scenario. Off the family room is a door leading out to our screen porch. There's a cat flap in the door so me and Zoe can come and go as we want, and since our litterbox is out there, it comes in quite handy. Well, last year my daddy got a hot tub and it's also in da screen porch. I like to jump on top of the cover as it gives me a much better perspective of all the sqwerls that like to torment me so muches! One day daddy was out piddling around doing something wif da hot tub and da cover was off. All of a suddens there's this humongous splash as i jumped right into the dang thing. I figured i'd jump up there like i always do, but this time kerSPLASH! I swam/crawled out so fast that daddy said i was out before i was all da way in! i ran in thru the door, which luckily for me was open, and ran thru da howse and hid under da bed. Of course my folks were laughing at me, but i thought it was not da least but funny! Mom followed the trail of water and eventually got me out from under da bed and held me close, wrapped up in a towel. I was SO SCARED! I had neber been swimming befores, and i think i don't much care for it! Mom got me dried off a bit with da towel, but i spent the rest of the night cleaning and cleaning and cleaning. In da morning mom said my fur was the cleanest and prettiest she had eber seen it.

Then, a few weeks after this horrendous affair, my daddy was getting out of da hot tub after his long day on da golf course. He needed to relax his muscles he says. Anyhoo, as he was getting out on one side, I JUMPED IN FROM DA OTHER SIDE! I know, can you believe it??? Daddy saw me swimming as fast as i possibly could and he scooped me up right out of da water. I ran in the house, this time the door was closed and i went thru da cat flap at at least one bazillion miles an hour. Mom was inside da howse and just saw a silver blur running thru da howse and under da bed. In case you haven't figured out by now, under da bed is my safe hidey spot. Again, mom coaxed me out, wrapped me up in a towel, and i had to clean myself for da rest of da night. She wasn't even mad about all da water i splashed thru da howse. She says at least if i'm gonna go swimming it's good to go in heated water so i don't fweeze to death.

Well, they sure had their laughs, and fortunately i haven't been in since. Two mistakes is more than enough. They used to fink i was a pretty smart cat, but after this they have their doubts. I neber been so scared in my entire short life! I still jump on top but only when da cover is on. Hopefully, i've learned my lesson.

  4. I didn't know that cats can swim but it's great that you did. I'm glad you haven't had any accidents recently. I would've been SOOOO mad at your Dad for leaving the cover off. xoxo

  5. I love the towel squizzles from mama when it rains here and I am outside lizard hunting; I mew and mew; but when its only 4am, peeps are sleeping; but then mama usually hears me and then the fun begins, the towels, the hugs and the baby talk; yes I love the baby talk; haha!!!

    Please be careful and don't you go swimming again though, ok? please promise that you will be careful!

    Thanks for sharing that story!

    PS Tell Dodo papa to put the cover on the hottub! Pfffft! sounds "par" for the course for a papa! MOL!

  6. I cannot believe that this kind of adventure can happen in a hot tub.
