Why Is the Human All Wet?

“Human, Jacey, Marley and I have a question.”

“Go ahead, Bagheera.”

“Yesterday, I knew something was up because you gave me the insulin shot a diabetic cat needs earlier than normal. There was something different about you when you came back”

“What do you mean, Bagheera?”

“Well, I do not want to offend you, human, but Jacey, Marley, and I thought you smelt funny. You smelt like salty water. Even a diabetic cat’s nose could pick that up. And human?”

“Yes, Bagheera?’

“I have never seen you use the litter box but you came back with all sorts of particles like you were using one. They were all over you. Do we have to teach you how to use a litter box?”

“Yeah, human. We do not understand why you would use a litter box now but if you’re going to, do not get particles of the litter all over you. Bagheera may be a diabetic cat who has to use the litter box more often, but he does not do this. That is one of the first rules!”

“Relax, Bagheera and Jacey. The reason I smelt like salty water is because I went to the ocean. And the particles you saw on me are called sand. I’m not planning on using your litter box.”

“Why were you all wet, human? I was worried.”

“Ah, Marley, there is a competition going around called the ice bucket challenge.”

“What is that?”

Ice Bucket Challenge
The Ice Bucket Challenge

“Well, you three, what happens is that you have to dump a bucket of ice water on your head or you have to donate to an organization that fights a disease we humans call ALS. And if you dump the water on your head, you challenge three other people to do the same.”

“Why did you use salty water, human?”

“We’re in a severe drought in California, Jacey, and some people have said that we shouldn’t use drinking water to do it. I decided that I would do it using another source of water that we cannot drink — sea water.”

“That is good, human, but I have to say something about you two legged creatures.”

“What’s that, Marley?”

“Don’t be angry, but you humans are strange.”
