This evening, my wife told me she had a confession to make. Earlier in the day, our younger cat had followed her into the bathroom, and to keep her distracted, she turned the faucet on a slow trickle to see what the cat would do. Well, after playing for a bit, the cat seemed to enjoy drinking from the running water.
Ha, ha, ha.
I proceeded to lecture my wife for a minute or two about teaching the cat bad habits, and then let her stew for a few minutes before showing her this video I filmed this morning.
Yeah...I think we need to nip this in the bud now, before it goes to far. One of my friends told me she had a cat who got used to drinking in this manner, and just about allowed herself to die of dehydration before she 'lowered' herself to drinking from a bowl again.
