Years ago, my aunt K had a big orange and white cat, Caddy (Cadillac), that loved to drink from the bathroom sink. Aunt K would leave the water trickling all the time just so Caddy could have a drink at his leisure. I didn’t know another sink-drinking cat until I introduced Freckle to our bathroom sink, just for fun…
I once turned the water on and cupped my hand underneath. “Want some water?” I asked him. He learned to it drink that way. That’s his favorite. He likes to be served. But he will drink it out of the tap itself. So, now, I have a sink-drinker, too!
Frecks will follow me into the bathroom and jump up onto the toilet seat or all the way up to the tank if the seat is busy. Then, he walks to the sink and asks me to turn the water on for him. He is not a patient man.
I usually only give him sink time while I’m in there, otherwise I forget I’ve left the water on! Sometimes he wants sinkwater when I’m not in the bathroom and he complains about it when I don’t go turn it on. I’ve created a watermonster.
