Dontcha just love these animal friends? They do the cutest things. Just now, Nellie who is a big girl 15 lb. calico Maine Coon, gave me a haughty glare when I reminded her that she and her sister would be spending "our" vacation away and that they would be enjoying the "spa" AKA the vet's boarding.

Jessica, it is the bathtub faucet that Orzo is asking me to turn on. The other faucet is taken apart and the water turned off because it leaked so bad and the other bathroom has just one control so has hot water. I put a stainless steel bowl in the tub and put a little water in it and he was content to drink from that. Don't know why he doesn't want the bowl in the kitchen. It is a pyrex one. When he drinks from the faucet he has really loud swallows.

Aren't cats funny about water? My cat, Chance, liked the fountain which was a pain to keep clean. All that cat spit kept clogging the filter. My Ernie loved to stand in the bathtub and beg for me to turn on the tub tap just a little and he would cock his head to the side and lap at the stream. I've never seen or heard anything like it. Anyone else?
The girls just lick out of the standard bowl in the kitchen and the basement. So who knows?

Hi, My KoKo is the same way about water. He doesn't drink hardly ever from a bowl. He wants to drink from the running water in the bathroom sink.
I worried when I am gone for several days that he doesn't get enough water even though my neighbor comes each day to give them food and water.

So I had heard of running water fountains for cats!! It is similar to the table top fountains that people buy. I found one over Christmas vacation at a Pet store. Mine was $45 but it has been well worth it! KoKo hardly ever gets into the sink now wanting water.

There are several prices for them and here is a link to Amazon. com for several different ones.
The one I bought is similar to the fourth one pictured!

Good Luck..... JO

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

Sorry, I was saying "you would THINK I had a female in heat." Orzo is a neutered male, but very vocal. I hadn't gotten to sleep until 1:00 last night and he started in at 4:00. I was having enough trouble sleeping because somehow last night I pulled a muscle in my leg and after walking around the stock show for approximately 8 hours I had serious pain in one foot. So an hour and a half sleep yesterday and 3 hours last night were just too few. But I could not get Orzo to shut up. He has water, but if I am home he won't touch it. Instead he insists on me turning on the faucet so he can drink out of it.

One would think I have a female in heat. Can anyone tell me how to shut Orzo up in the early morning? Yesterday I didn't fall asleep until 5;00 and he started yowling at me at 6:30 because he wanted me to turn on the water in the bathtub so he could get a drink. I had gotten him fresh water in his bowl just a few hours before and he had drank from the faucet just before I went to bed. This morning I had to get up at 4:00 and he was not interested in getting a drink from the faucet. At least not until I went back to bed. Then he immediately started yowling and has kept it up since then and it is now almost 9:00. I got maybe a half hour more sleep. I told him that from now on he has to drink only from his bowl. It is the third day he has done this to me.
