I do not understand, good friends, why baths are so bad. In fact, I must tell you that I believe them to be great fun! I am not condoning the use of water, dear kitties, for water is an evil element of nature that seeks to get our already clean fur wet.
I have discovered a use for the bathtub. Last night, as my mom watched from her throne (the toilet), I lightly leapt into the tub and set war upon an arachnid. The arachnid lost of course, because it had no escape. In fact, Catsters, NOTHING can escape a bathtub.
As I stared at my deceased arachnid wondering what I should attack next, I heard a tinkling sound from behind me and so turned around. There sat a ball. A red ball with a bell in it. Then, from my left, came a fuzzy pink ball. And then, down the side of the tub, came one more white ball. It was attack time.
The sides of a bathtub are high enough that a ball cannot jump out. The sides of a bathtub also slope, so when a ball rolls up a little, it must roll down. Lastly, my friends, bathtub walls have no corners, cubbies, or any other stopping mechanism to lock up a ball and stop play. This provides for endless fun.
Just beware of a wet bathtub. Sometimes a wet tub can cause a fun-seeking kitty to slip. The drain, too, can be a detriment to perfect play. In the case that a ball sticks in the drain, claws come in handy.
The other thing that I have deemed a fun endeavor is the fishbowl. We have a beta fish named Red (it’s an anomaly because he is really a blue fish). I like to try and paw at him, but I haven’t quite figured out how to catch him. The water gets in my way, and like I said earlier, water is a natural disaster, I do not like it on my paws. The only time water is good is when you are thirsty, and I have to say, drinking from Red’s bowl is significantly more fun than drinking from my plain water dish.
More adventures and tips to come!

MOL! You have truly invented a new game/use for a tub!
Meowmy has seen lots of kitties trying to get drinks from fishbowls...MOL!
