Is this fun or what? I'm on the other side of the 'thing' now. I guess I'm on the 'inside.' It's a lot dryer than the other side. Our hooman takes it with her whenever it rains or whenever she thinks it's going to rain. She says she has an App to tell her if it's going to rain. Remarkable, huh? Well, it rained. The other side is totally, I mean, completely wet. Me? I prefer this side, the dry side. But I love it when the parasol is out -- so I purr for rain.
