No, we don’t let our cats drink from the kitchen faucet. They have their own water fountain in the Cat Den. Don’t ask us where these photos came from. Roaming Investigating Reporter Olivia probably knows!

As you can see, Pia Bean isn’t the least bit fussy about water, or dainty about her drinking style.

In fact, she’ll splash around in it all day if we, mom, dad someone lets her.

Now, talk about someone with drinking style! Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on how you look at it, Quint doesn’t quite understand the faucet appeal.

  1. We felines definitely have a very special relationship with water… and it’s different for each of us.

  2. Nothin worse than getting water up your snoot!

  3. We mostly have wet food so we don’t drink very much water as we get it as we eat. Sometimes if it’s very hot we will get a good drink but that isn’t too often in the UK!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  4. My Himalayan loved to drink out of the bathroom vanity faucet. That is often where I found her when I went looking. She trained me well 😉

  5. Quint: using a faucet–fail. LOL

  6. Nice pictures!
    Our Tommie asks to be lifted up to the sink ( jumping challenged now that he’s 16 ) every morning but can’t quite get the hang of drinking from the faucet once he gets up there…

  7. Faraday: Quint, I’m wif you, dood. Maxie on the other paw – he’s ALL IN. Water everywhere!!

  8. Oh Quint. Those were such funny pictures. Tutu loves it when water trickles down from the faucet and tries to bite them. Silly girl!

  9. Yikes not for us at all. Bad enough getting a bath every so often. Run and hide we say.
    Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  10. No faucet lovers here! We all like our fountain just fine.

    Moosey and Zoe are big time faucet drinkers, too. Gracie prefers here from a bowl, though.

  15. Hmmm… Sometimes what is ‘allowed’ and what is ‘practiced’ are two different things.

  16. I like to drink from the bath tap or in the garden I drink from the bird bath.

  17. That’s one thing we haven’t tried…drinking from the faucet. We think we’re missing out.

    The Florida Furkids

  19. Currently, Lily Olivia is our faucet drinker, and she is very dainty about it. Pia looks so cute with the water all over her face furs. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  20. Quint, that made me laugh!! Do you know my bro Elliott doesn’t get the fountain? He gets his whole head wet while drinking from the bottom!

  21. We love, love, love your watering pics!

  22. Two of our angel kitties used to like drinking like that.
    Pipo uses his paw in the bowl, Minko is a regular slurper.

    Cute series of pics!

    • Sorry about our name…we just can’t seem to make it include us. Sheesh, we have tried all kinds of stuff to get it changed….oh well. that dude is our doggy brofur.

  23. Oh Quint, you are too cute trying to drink out of the faucet. We have two cats here that like to do that. Love the pictures.

  24. My brofur Buddy has a really hankering for a drippy faucet. Dad always knows if he leaves the tub drip a bit as Buddy has the wet head. Very funny

  25. We love our sink water!

  26. We like to drink from the faucet. Derby specially likes to do it while mum brushes her toothies.

  27. I don’t drink water but Faith used to only drink from the kitchen faucet. She’d be up there waiting 400 times a day.
