Much-MUCH better than sad, tortured, & unfortunate Wee Ones staring at the camera hopelessly. THIS might actually help THEM find homes too.
Definitely better than SAD ANIMALS.
I’ve definitely had pets who clearly thought I was a complete dumbass.
When I was little we had a cat who … you know, I don’t actually remember his original name (as is so common with cats especially) but we called him Shower Buddy.
And EVERY DAY Shower Buddy would sit on the toilet in the bathroom and just YOWL at my mom taking a shower. Like “OH MY GOD WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING? THAT’S *WATER*. WHAT ARE YOU DOING? IT’S GOING TO KILL YOU!”
Just a pool, disguised as a pond, with a trampoline instead of a diving board.
I wrote a paper about these kinds of pools several years ago for a class when they were just prototypes. These pools have a natural filtration system that run based on the plants that are in the pool that give the water nutrients that allow it to not only be crystal clear, but you are also able to drink the water because it becomes so clean. And the best part is that once the initial filtration system is installed and calibrated, it maintains itself and eliminates the need for chlorine or constant maintenance like salt water pools.
