Oh dear Lord. My cat, Aramis, is the single most pathetic creature on the planet.
We came back from a July 4th birthday/Independence Day swim party. I still had ice in the cooler so I dumped it into the kitchen sink. Then it was time to feed the cats. I refilled their waterdish with fresh water and, for fun, added some of the aforementioned ice cubes. Little did I know the Hell that I had unleased on the very timid Aramis.
She looked suspiciously at them then her tail goes bristley and she starts HISSING AT HER WATERDISH.
My cat is terrified of ICE CUBES! We are talking about small bits of frozen water floating in a dish, folks.
This tops her phobia of grass.
