a strange habit. Every time we sit on the toilet, she jumps on the counter and acts interested in the sink. So we began turning on the water, just a tiny trickle. I couldn't get a shot of her actually drinking because every time she hears the click, she looks up and all I get is her face. But here she is licking her lips.

I guess they just prefer running water to stagnant stuff. Mine do that too whenever I go into the bathroom and turn the sink on or in the laundry room. Sometimes it can be quite annoying when you are trying to brush your teeth and need to spit and there is a cat in the sink ex[smile2]
They make circulating water dishes for cats but I've never tried one. I did take an aquarium pump that put bubbles in their dish but they weren't thrilled w/ that set up es[uhuh]

He's cute sitting in his little sink Bullfrog ex[giggle]
One of my cat jumps on the kitchen counter and I have a little shelf where I keep my earplugs for the riding lawn mower and she feels that these really belong on the floor so she makes sure they are at all times
Same goes for all our table coasters....................they belong on the floor ex[kitten]

Mittens is always making sure I take care of my spools of thread in the sewing room. I read somewhere that they like to chew on thread and it can get tangled in their gut so if I don't put them right away, she's up there batting them around.

Years ago now we had a Manx for eighteen years until one day she just went away. We believe she wanted to die alone. We never found her, and to this day we really miss that old cat. My thought was, what is it about cats drinking from the kitchen or bathroom sink? We always put down a fresh bowl of water the R.C., (short for 'recreational cat'), but she insisted she had to drink out of one of the those sinks. For years we just got to a point where we always left the bathroom sink tap water dripping. If for any reason we forgot to leave the water dripping, R.C. would ever sit there on the edge of the sink camped out waiting for someone to come along and turn on the water.

Happy ponding, ex[kitten]

So pretty kitty. We had an all black one for a long time but Cocoa developed a very bad habit, began spraying around the house. She was a neutered female. We took her to the vet and had her checked out. He sold us some pheromone spray to treat where she had sprayed and she sprayed somewhere else. I had her put down. Didn't want to but I won't have an animal ruining my house.

This one also is a spayed female that doesn't get along w/ her sister. She is very territorial and she started spraying. I got the Feliway plug ins and I put her out every morning and don't let her in until evening,and when I let her in I put her right into her cat box to make sure she does her thing and then I plug in the pheromone thing and so far so good. I don't leave it plugged in all day cuz she's not inside and those things aren't cheap. I've had this routine going on for about a month now. I guess it's supposed to mellow them out. I shut all the upstairs doors to keep her out too

My cat situation was maybe 8 years ago. She was the only animal we had. Pete had been remodeling the house, one room at a time, tearing off the drywall, putting in new insulation and wall plugs, and then wallpapering or painting and new carpet. When Cocoa started spraying, he was working on the last room, our bedroom. She sprayed on the entertainment center one night while I was watching TV, sprayed on the new oak closet door in our bedroom, sprayed on the oak hutch/china cabinet in the dining room, and it goes on and on. She did it one last time in the laundry room and I saw her do it and took her to the vet's right away. He said that seeing she had been spraying at my son's house first, that's how I got her. And now 3 years later with no problem, she started again. Vet said she'd probably not stop. I bawled and bawled but ----------
