When I was younger, I used to play with my toys in the bathroom as Mom took baths. She liked to relax in a cloud of bubbles, with a glass of wine and a good book. Whenever she finished a chapter, she would playfully splash me with water.
I hated that. It made me feel wet and cold, but seeing her enjoy it so much, made me wonder what I was missing out on. When Lilly – my sister – came along, Mom got a kitty pool for the backyard and the two of them played in it for hours.
One summer day, I dipped my toes in. It was as horrible as I had predicted it to be, but I knew I could not give up if I wanted to become Mom’s favorite again. So, the following day, I went back in and even had some fun.
And they say cats are afraid of water…
