It took me a while, but I finally caught a photo of Spit in the sink.

You have NO idea, how badly I wanted to write that.


Let me explain….

My husband created a monster.

Ok, well, maybe I helped.

It all started when Spit (short of Spitfire) was little.

She REFUSED to drink from her bowl – she’dwash her paws in it, get the water dirty and not want to drink any.

One morning she sat on the counter staring at the the water running from the sink as he washed his hands. He filled the sink bowl.

From that point on, she would ONLY drink from the sink.

We thought when we moved we might be able to change it.

But no, she just sleeps or sits in the sink now – waiting for us…


And when we come she drinks straight from the tap.


Silly finicky cat.

It’s a BATTLE every time I’m in the bathroom.

I understand fighting for bathroom space with teenage daughters and such, but the CAT?

Forget locking the door to keep the kids out – I do it to keep the Cat out!

If I don’t, we’re fight to see who gets the water from the faucet when I go to wash my hands, or brush my teeth.

We’ve tried not encouraging her, but the kids take pity.

Or her meowing sounds pathetic.

And we’re quite convinced she’d rather die of thirst than drink out of a lowly bowl on the floor.

Maybe we should have named her

Sheba – as in Queen of.

*At least she hasn’t tried to drink from the toilet like our pet squirrel did, God rest his soul.

    Cats often prefer running water because it is better oxygenated, fresher, and tastes better. One of our cats preferred to drink from the filter in the fish tank. Ick! Besides, the water was disappearing from the tank at an alarming rate! We finally got a cat water fountain. It filters and circulates the water, and fountains it down like a running tap. With that, and covering the filter over with a super classy cut up chex box, Sierra finally drinks plenty from the right dish 😛 (Yes,we have spoiled cats. I almost feel embarrassed about that, but when I consider their entertainment value it’s totally worth it, lol.)

  3. You sure have some quirky animals there! I loved your opening line though! Very clever 🙂

  4. That is funny! I was thinking of the fancy cat water fountain also where the water circulates. Your method is probably cheaper. ; )

  5. So funny cat!.. she is so adorable…:)
