    Smile Rain?!

    Hey,
    If somebody stays in rain, which of following would be the best to describe him or her?

    - like a drowned cat
    - soak to the skin

    Please suggest better options. (if you have one.)

    Thanks a lot,

    - like a drowned cat - more informal
    - soaked to the skin - less vivid

    For me, "like a drowned rat" is more natural and commonly used than "drowned cat".
