Cat in the Tub

This is our cat in the bath. He doesn’t really do anything funny. He just stands in the bathtub. Then he leaves.

That was then (or, to be more precise but still vague, a few months ago). He now usually joins our daughter for her bath time. He also makes sure to come into the shower for a minute or two. And he has started imitating us by testing the temperature of the shower with his paw.
So, here’s the question: do we own a cat idiot, or is spending long periods of time in a filled bathtub a sign that he’s some sort of feline kwisatz haderarch

Just to follow up on Charli’s post: if for some reason, you’re not one of the millions who have already seen “An Engineer’s Guide to Cats,” please rectify that now.

And the sequel:


Following the theme of Animal Posting…

I swore I’d never catch the whole “Friday cat blogging” meme, and this won’t be a regular thing, but I just have to wish everyone a happy “Leave Your Cat at Home Day.” Founded in response to “Bring your Kid to Work Day” and “Bring your Dog to Work Day,” (“Kids and D*gs have their own day – they go
to work! Now cats have their own day – are they going to go to work?
Of course not!” ), this holiday celebrates the spirit of cats, and asks us to “admire the way cats have arranged the world”:

“Everyone has to go to work – grown-ups, kids and those other unspeakable creatures who sit on command and beg for treats – while cats get to relax in luxury at home. Celebrate this special day with your cats by lavishing them with gifts and lots of extra pampering. Be sure to honor your cats with the Chant of the Day©. Visit the rest of this website for celebration ideas and make up some of your own.”

OK, back to work now. Me, that is.
