On extra cold nights, we run a thin water trickle from the kitchen faucet to guard against pipes freezing and Mom thought why not capture that water for use elsewhere? And since we know how much Viola likes to get to the bottom of things, that meant Mom needed to watch to make sure The Squirt didn’t end up going for a swim.

In the end, Mom ended up pouring the water into our big backyard fountain because the bucket had cat fur in it. How that ever happened is a mystery.

  1. We had to laugh at Viola playing with the water in the sink – maybe she just likes the sound of it dripping!

  2. Great idea to catch and reuse the water! Funny how some cats dearly love playing with water. That isn’t to say they’d like a bath, though!

  3. We think Lucy would love a faucet with dripping water, but we are not going down that road, if you know what I mean.

  4. Car fur gets into everything.

  5. Viola, we understand your love for dripping water, because we love it too!

  6. Aww … those are beautiful pictures of Viola! Not only is she a stunner, but cute too!

  7. Dripping water is such fun…I like for dad to let it drip while he is shaving.

  12. Aww, very cute photos! Thank you for sharing 🙂
    Take care,

  13. Viola, you look so pretty doing your experiments! I wonder how that cat fur got in the bucket? Hmmmm. Well, that was a good thing that Mom did, to recycle the water like that.

  14. Viola! You found a new toy!

  15. Too funny! Viola was clearly enjoying herself 🙂

  16. Looks like she had lots of fun. 🙂

  17. HAH! Gramps used to do that running water thing but only if it was sengle digits. This condo community has at least 1 pipe burst a year cos they don’t shut the outside water off in the winter. Viola, don’t get arthur-itis in your paws.

  18. Viola, Mom says you must be related to me ‘cuz I love water, too!! I manage to get it all over myself when she lets the water run for me!

  19. Viola is enjoying playing with the water. Eric was fascinated by water too. He would even get in the bath if one of us was in it. I had to grab a towel because he would lie on me making biscuits.

  20. We cat love to mess with water. Why are the humans surprised there is fur in the water.

  21. The baftub could hold a lot of water!

    Haha. We wonder how that cat fur got in the bucket. Viola, do YOU know? 🙂

  23. Oh boy…water!
    That is really neat-o…

  24. Haha, a mystery indeed.

  25. You are a character, Viola. Very smart of your mom to collect that water. Our mom says, “Thanks for the idea.” XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy
