Niteowl, you can bring Melodee up for a playdate anytime.
L4L, I would have liked to have seen that expression.
And Yankee, yes! I am so glad he claimed us. He isn't the first cat I have had to love water either. I had a Siamese called Mr. Dickens, who got into the tub with me on more than one occasion, played in mud puddles and once took a flying leap into the fishpond to become completely submerged and I promise, he did walk on water. He also said a naughty word that I won't repeat here!!
I don't know what we would do without our animal friends and family!!
