I read somewhere recently that cats don’t drink much water. That sure isn’t true of Twiggy and Twursula. Or is it that they just like controlling us and making us do their bidding?
Twursula loves drinking running water out of the bathroom faucets, turn it on very low please. If no one is around to turn the water on Twursula will go lick the water out of the inside of the tub faucet. She won’t lick the inside of the faucet in the sink, it has to be the one in the bathtub. When she was younger she would drink water out of the hose if the water flow was gentle. She doesn’t seem to trust me with the hose anymore. Maybe Amara has warned her.
Twiggy almost never drinks out of the bathtub. She does like fresh water in the bathroom sink but not running water. She wants her sink water more like a bowl. Twiggy also LOVES shower water in Grampy’s shower. She has been known to stand in the middle of his bathroom and cry until someone gets up and opens the shower door and turns the water on — ever so briefly — so that afterward she can get in and lap the water off the bottom of the shower floor and sometimes off the walls! She likes to do this around 3AM.
We used to have a covered sandbox in the backyard that would get small pockets of water on it after the sprinklers ran — somehow this water was extra delicious and Twiggy, Twursula and all the strays that have come to visit used to love drinking water from it.
Shebee doesn’t seem to have any strange drinking habits — at least not yet but you know how cats are!
