It's Raining Cats and Dogs

Literally.

I have been semi-pet-sitting for the last couple of days. Ok, so really I just have an excuse to go play with cats and a doggie. My "pet-sitting" stint officially began yesterday... the day that L.A. began getting rain. A lot of rain.

Murphy, a big dog, kind of a cross between a Ridgeback and a moose, loves to play ball. Evidently the rain is not a deterrent. Not one iota. After playing ball in the rain with her for some time, I decided I needed to be warm and dry and headed inside. Murphy (somewhat reluctantly) came in with me & I held on to her collar and ducked down under the table to grab a towel to dry her off.

All I know is that when my head came up, I was nose to wet doggie snout and was sprouting white fur on the back of my neck. Nikita and Jasper (2 of the kitties) decided to try to keep me warm by making a little kitty muffler and fur hat straight out of Dr. Zhivago out of their bodies. While I appreciated the sacrifice, it's a bit closer than anyone with cat allergies should be to the feline species.

I guess I was destined to have it rain cats and dogs on me indoors and out.

Heh..that would be a good way to kill me.

It's been raining like that down here in OC too...lots of water, making it a bitch to drive around in. This weekend looks nicer, though =)
