Thirsty Thursday

Star loves to get her nightly drink on the sink. She even braves going past Leo without swatting him to get there! There is a serious ritual to all of this too.

She puts her paws up on my leg and I pick her up and put her on the counter. She walks to the end as I fill the glass. Then she turns around and inspects the water. If it doesn't please her, she turns around and goes back to sit on the end again. I refill because I've spoiled her just that much. Sometimes this happens twice before she's satisfied.

Then she starts drinking from the opposite side of the glass, her tongue licking up the side. Which I think is odd because I thought they lapped up from the middle! But Leo does it the exact same way. Except he makes a mess, dribbling as much over the edge as he laps up!

Both of these video's are Star getting her drink on. It's a shame you can't hear how loudly she laps!

The other day, Star came in for her drink and did not notice, or if she did, she didn't care, that Leo was already on the counter getting his drink. Leo prefers the glass on the end of the counter and he sits about where the glass is for Star.. So he's sitting there, and Star asks to get up by putting her paws on me. I told her she didn't want to do that, but I picked her up anyway, thinking she'd stop before stepping off of me and onto the counter. But no, she went right onto the counter, nose to tail with Leo!

Leo, for the record, is the one who freaked a little. He gave up his drink and position and jumped down immediately! ..And went to the other side of the room to play with a dried up hairball that I hadn't seen.. sigh.. He tucked it carefully under the bathmat when he was done too. I wonder how long it's been there!



Sorry about the confusion yesterday! I thought the huge paw was a give away. It was Leo listening to your troubles!

Trust a kitty to make drinking something worth videotaping! :)
Mommy has a large coffee mug on her desk for us to drink from. Cosmo laps it like Star but flicks a lot of the water up his nose. Ling drinks like a lady and from the center. Then Tutu drinks like she's blowing bubbles and when she's done, there'll be a huge drop of water hanging off her chin.

We aren't really allowed to drink out of a cup. Something about a previous cat having knocked one over on a sleeping human....

We never get to drink out of glasses. Star and Leo are very lucky to be able to do so.

I wish I got such first class treatment! My human just sets down my plastic glass of bottled spring water and I don't have a choice whether I approve or not.

Whoa! We're supposed to drink water? Since when?

The Indulged Furries said...

My Ed preferred drinking from a glass, and the water had to be fresh just like for Star. Raven is intrigued by the faucet, but after three years she still hasn't figured out how to drink from it.
