Water Woes

We've been having a lot of rain lately. That's okay because Florida is experiencing a major drought and the drinking water supply is severely depleted.
I don't mind that. Water outside is good. It's when it attacks inside the house that I don't like it.
Last night we were in the human litterbox room. Mommy flushed the round white bowl and the water wouldn't stop coming up. It poured out of the bowl and all over the floor. My paws got wet. I did the only thing a kitty could do- I ran!I felt bad about leaving Mommy, so a few minutes later I peaked around the corner. She was using towels to sop up the water and swearing. Her vocabulary was impressive.
Then this morningmy water bowl was empty and Granny poured some from a bottle into my dish. Only it wasn't water. It was lemonade that myMommy had mixed together to take to work. BLECH. I meowed trying to tell granny that something was wrong,but she didn't get it. Then when Mommy got up I meowed at her, She didn't get it either. She just poured water over the lemonade. Finally i jut sat by my dish and cried. They were fussing around me , then Mommy went into the fridge, saw her bottle was missing and figured out what happened. She hugged me, apologized and gave me some water. Finally.

I don't blame you for running. I don't like for there to be water anyplace it's not supposed to be.

Oh my! That sounds like entirely too many water events so close together. I think I would be very frightened if mom's cat box threw up like that.

Those mommies should learn to listen. If my mum doesn't get me water I tip my bowl over after pushing it around the room. That makes her come running!!

I do not like rain. It is bad. I do like to listen to it, though, it makes neat noises.

We're glad you finally got some real water in your dish, we don't think we'd like lemonade, either!! We hope the human litterbox thing doesn't spit all its water out again, that sounds scary!!

Thank you for your kindmess and prayers for our family in the loss of our Uncle Rocky.

It is really dry in the Big Piney Woods too, the trees are sighing and the grass is brown. Momma likes that lemonade too, it isn't fit for consumption.
