Just who would throw their cat in the pool for photos? ...

But good doggie!

yeah, i considered not posting this because i don't approve of terrorizing animals, not even for cute cat macros.

i did surf the intertubez a bit looking for details on whether the cat actually was thrown into the pool just for the sake of the photos, but came up empty-handed. if you've got a link to something, i'd love to know about it.

on a tangent, curmudgeon cat really is a dog in a cat suit, he likes water. meanwhile, the dog really is a cat in s dog suit, believing that all water, even that in the water bowl, is eeeeeevilllllll.

No, I have no proof. But the day is clear, the photographer is positioned nicely and just happened to have a camera...

It also might be a cat who likes water... but I think not by the expression.

this is the closest i could find in posture and expression. part of the reason the cat in the ihah photo looks scared, i think, is because there's a shadow across its face in the lower photo [from the dog's nose, it looks like].

i have to admit that i want it to be true that the cat is a willing participant here.
