Mice can't swim. Well, maybe they just can't swim in chlorinated water. Just about every time I go out to skim the pool, I find some poor mouse floating face down. I think last week alone I pulled about five mice out of the water.
It's a shame really. Preventable too I think, with the proper precautions in place. So I've hired a lifeguard to help alleviate the situation. She's a good swimmer, although I think she just really wants to work on her tan. But she's pretty friendly and she works for cheap. If only I could get her to shave her legs.
Side note: Stiffy, pictured in the background, does shave her legs as far as I know. At least when she comes to the pool anyway.
