Cat v. Pool:
You know how annoying it is when your cat brings you back a dead mouse or chipmunk and leaves it half eaten on your front porch; right? Well a pool is worse than a cat. A vet once told me that cats show you that they love you by doing that. I told him the cat was a jerk. I was like, tell my cat to knock it off.
Trust me, even the most cunning predatory cat is nothing compared to a pool. Do you know how many animals you can drown with 50,000 gallons of water? About five times a week, a squirrel, rat, mouse or some other unidentified rodent finds a way into the pool, but for some damn reason can’t figure out how to make it to the stairs where it could crawl out. You know what that means, right? I have to get the skimmer. Yuk. What gets me are all of the amphibians! Seriously amphibians?! You live in water! Why do you jump in my pool and die? Especially the toads, do they bask in the glory of the pool and forget how to swim?!?!?!?!
Bottom line … pools are way jerkier than cats. At least you can leave a cat alone with food and water for a week. Not a pool! Why do you own an inanimate object you can’t leave for a week?!
