What is this big thing? Why is it so wet? Meowmuh shook it real hard just outside the door as she came home. Then she opened it into this real big thing inside the house & set it here on the landing. She said she doesn't use this big thing very much anymore because it rarely rains where we live -- in Southern California. So her having this out is special. I'm investigating it. Be sure & watch my video: "Paws & Parasols."
