"Tapping" the Water Supply
This is the bathroom sink being put to good use by a lovely Siamese. Why cats drink from the sink remains and likely will always remain a mystery. The bathtub has a similar allure. Curious.
There is of course, some truth to the old story about cat's wanting "live" water like their relatives the big cats drinking from the communal pool. There is also, I think the allure of doing for themselves instead of just taking what's offered. Independent little souls that they are, no doubt that appeals to them.
Whatever the reason, I try to keep all my faucets squeaky clean inside and out, so kitty doesn't get too much mineral with it's water! Enjoy El Gato. Enjoy.
