Dot Can Swim

So today I was "cleaning" our very large cast iron bathtub...I say the word "cleaning" lightly, because I came up with an easy way to clean the tub and shower curtain at the same time by filling the tub up with water and bleach then let the bottom of the curtain (where it really is the yuckiest) soak for the day. Even though this method is truly lazy I still feel kind of ingenious for coming up with it.
Well, this morning I filled up the tub, poured in the bleach, and let it get clean on it's own. Unfortunately I forgot that our cat, Dot, has been in the habit lately of jumping into the tub to get a drink from the leaky faucet. So, as I'm sure you've guessed by now, a few minutes after I filled the tub I hear a loud splashing coming from the bathroom. Zibby was taking her nap, so all at once I realized...poor Dot! I ran to the bathroom and found the poor cat...skinny, soaked, and shocked to say the least!
I just wish I could've actually seen her swimming in the tub...now that would've been a sight! I wonder if her fur will be a little lighter now?


  1. Oh my goodness!! You bleached your kitty! Too funny. I would have liked to see her all wet. I also would like to see your tub... cast iron. Wow.

  2. this was a great visual for me this morning, and a great idea of letting the curtain set in bleach, tahnks friend!
