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!
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!
