    Is this supposed to make me feel guilty for doing about 10% of that much work on that day?

    And, the cat finds his happy place inside the toilet bowl? In the water? Or Urine and water?
    Just laying in the water?
    I’ve read that particular bullet point 17 times and STILL am having problems wrapping my head around it!

        Strange. Cats usually HATE water! It must be part of his docile nature.
        Perfect for a kid – Nerve wracking for the parent.
