Curiosity Killed The Cat... Well, Got Him Wet At Least

I was reading over at View From the Porch and found this little gem of an story .

Her story talks about her cat, Huck who seems to be playful and fun and a bit curious. Huck the cat, reminds me of a cat that I had years ago named Angus.

Angus was a sweet boy and very curious about everything, especially about folks taking a shower.  He would sit on the corner of the tub and watch as someone showered.

Every day, I would shower and Angus would sit there and watch.  After a while, he got curious about the shampoo and conditioner and would walk along the skinny edge of the tub against the wall, over to the other corner and sniff the shampoo bottles.  He did this numerous times safely.

One day, while feeling rather cocky, Angus decided to check out the shampoo and as he was inching his way over to the other side, he slipped and fell into the water.  I never knew that cats could move so fast, but it sounded something like, "splash! mrrrreoooowwww! swooooosh!"

It was really pretty dang funny.

Poor Angus was killed about 15 years ago by a couple of dogs that had gotten out of their yard.  Luckily, I didn't kill my neighbors, or their stupid dogs.
