    Cool photo! It reminds me of my cats, but neither could possibly interact at all while WET. I’m jealous of mammals who can live in cold water, since that was my childhood fantasy. I’d read some wonderful tales about whales, dolphins, and otters, and it seemed totally unfair that I was bound to air, dryness, heaters, and generally staying inside when it rained.

    Ah, I was wondering when the next one would show up. Lovely photo. The pair in residence at the national zoo in D.C. is a treat to watch.
