Rainy Day

Rainy Day Wilma

This is Wilma. She’s not having a good day.

It’s raining in Southern California, and everyone is relieved except Wilma. I sympathize. I like warm, sunny weather. But we’ve been getting much more sun than we need.

There’s an added plus for me: I get to stay inside and write, no matter how much the lawn may need mowing.

Wilma’s typing skills are sloppy, at best. She works 9 to 5 protecting our back yard from squirrels. Before the rain I walked her in the neighborhood, and we played tug-of-war. But she’s already bored. What do your pets do on rainy days? Any suggestions? Does any pet like rain?

    I doubt any pet will go for the rain. Too much in the way of wet fur to be bothered by!

      I guess so. Dogs get stinky, too!

      Wilma would be more than happy to help your cat with that squirrel. But you’ll have to keep the cat inside.

    Our Golden Retriever would have no problem with rain so long as she was with us. That was her main concern. We lost her five years ago and still miss her every day.

      I’m sorry she’s gone. I know how that feels. Boz has been gone 2 1/2 years.
      Wilma is not a replacement, she’s her very own self, a completely different person. Except she doesn’t like the rain any more than Boz did.
