Our Silly Old Cat!

Zoe, our 18 year old Siamese cat decides to check out something she’s never seen before.

A rather large puddle in front of our house created by the heavy rains from the passage (well west of us) of Hurricane Irma. Zoe ran out from the garage and down the driveway (with winds around 35 mph with gusts to around 55 mph or so) to get a closer look at this “new found thing” (and a drink!).

What we don’t see is that as soon as I moved the camera away, she proceeded to JUMP into the puddle and swim around!!! I couldn’t believe what I saw and of course she was out in a flash – soaked and meowing her head off! No damage done and now she knows that she can’t walk on water.


The street flooded only because the drains were blocked by leaves that had been ripped off the oak trees by the gusty winds. As soon as a neighbor cleared the drains (shortly after this shot) the street was back to normal and Zoe’s swimming hole was gone.


An appropriate “possessed” cat pic of Zoe. Wanting me to turn on the faucet.

This was on Monday morning (9-11-2017) and she’s gone down the driveway everyday since to check on her puddle! Silly old cat!

Thanks for stopping by!
