SHE sits with eyes squeezed shut, dreaming her pussycat dreams, as the warm water soaks her from top to tail. We've all experienced the joy that Chloe the Persian cat feels at the prospect of a good shampoo - but it's a little odd that she feels it too. Her owner Phil Gardner is as surprised as anyone that his cat, unlike most of her kind, adores the water. He introduced her to showers after her long hair became matted and the vet told him to give her a wash and a trim. Bracing himself for a clawing he put Chloe in the bath and turned on the water. But instead of hissing, she sat back on her paws and let the drops cascade over her. Mr Gardner, 35, a hospital worker from Brighton, said he can barely keep Chloe out of the shower these days. He said: 'She loves the feel of warm water and I can see her ears prick up every time I put the shower on. 'I have to keep the door locked when I go in to stop her jumping in with me.' - Daily Mail
