On one of these recent nice days Bob and I were soaking outside in the hot tub in the afternoon. It was so nice we let both cats out too. Remember Smoky is our very curious cat. No cupboard, drawer, closet, open door or anything new or moved in the house escapes his curiosity and investigation. Also remember that Smoky is our not so sure footed pet, also called a clumsy cat. He is always knocking stuff over or missing his landing when he jumps on something.
Both curiosity and clumsy combined when Smoky decided to jump up on the side of the open hot tub, about 4 inches wide ledge. You guessed it, Smoky fell into the water. He did a nice save, only his back legs and tail got soaked and we didn’t have to rescue him. He jumped out and didn’t even seem to upset. He didn’t run away, just started drying himself off.
Turn on water anywhere in the house and Smoky appears. He likes the sink so much, as well as sitting in the shower, perhaps he saw the hot tub as his own water spot? It will be interesting to see if he tries again. He has no fear of jumping on top of it if the cover is on it.
