It's Raining Cats in Yangdong

When walking through the Yangdong Village in Korea, I spotted this cat sunning itself on the thatched roof of one of the traditional homes in this UNESCO village. It reminded me of the theories of the etymology for the phrase "raining cats and dogs" in which the animals would sleep on the straw roofs of homes and slide off when wet with rain. Not at all worried about rain, this cat seemed totally relaxed and content.
