For mousin' out loud, the sayin' really is true. It never rains but it pours, my friends.
I know, I know... I know what you're thinkin'. You're thinkin' that it wasn't all that long ago when I, Seville the Cat, was beggin' - BEGGIN! - for rain. And you know what? You're right. That's exactly what I did.
But I had good reason to be beggin' for rain, back then. My fair province of Nova Scotia was on fire. On fire, I say. On fire! There were out-of-control wildfires all over the place. And although the firefighters were workin' like mad and doin' as best as anyone could, what we really and truly needed was rain. Lots of it, too. Yup, what we needed back then was lots and lots of rain.
But that was then and this is now and let me tell you somethin', my friends: I swear it hasn't stopped rainin' since it started a few weeks ago, and...
Okay, so it has stopped rainin' a bit.
Now and then.
For maybe a second or two.
But no sooner does it stop, then it starts rainin' again!
I swear she's been underpaw for weeks.
I believe her not wantin' to walk in the rain is on account of the well-documented phenomenon that occurs when peeps melt after gettin' wet.
Saw it on The Wizard of Oz so I know it absolutely must be true.
Or maybe she's afraid of accidentally participatin' in a wet t-shirt contest!
Could be either one, I suppose.
But meltin' peeps and wet t-shirts aside, facts are facts. AND THE FACT IS, like I said, Peepers has been underpaw for weeks AND IT'S DRIVIN' ME CRAZY, for sure.
And then there's the shortage of sunpuddles which is makin' me a tad grumpy, I'm afraid. That's right, there isn't a sunpuddle in sight around here. Nope, not a one. Oh sure, there are puddles, all right. There are puddles all over the place. But they're puddles of the water kind and the sun kind are nowhere to be found. And although I enjoy a good drink of puddle water as much as the next cat, now and then, what I really like doin' is to lie out in the sun.
And believe-you-me, you DON'T wanna accidentally mistake a water-filled puddle for a sunpuddle, my friends.
It's not a pretty sight.
So Mother Nature, if you're listenin', PLEASE STOP WITH RAIN! Try to exercise a little moderation now and then, would ya? There are plenty of places in Canada that are in dire need of the rain and I know I speak for all Nova Scotian kitties when I say, WE KITTIES WOULD BE HAPPY TO SHARE.
So please send a few of those rain clouds to Ontario and Quebec. At least for a week, or two, okay?
Good gosh, at this point, I'd be happy for one day.
