Cat Shower

The cat is waiting for me to finish my shower, so she could jump right in and drink the soapy water, clearly not knowing any better.

  1. Define “knowing better.” She knows it tastes like soapy water. She happens to like soapy water. My dog prefers mud puddles to the clean water in her bowl. She considers it flavored water. Humans pay money for that.

    1. LOL ๐Ÿ˜€ I suspect it’s instinctual with animals: they are driven to drink filthy water from puddles and suspect the fresh water in their bowls. I’m currently using a coffee-scented shower gel, so my cat will soon have a caffeine problem.

  2. Oh my gosh, Mara. What is it with cats and water? When I fill my cat bowls in the morning, I have to leave the tap running so Parker can play in the water for a bit. Soapy water, eh? I hope you use good soap! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. It’s probably more natural for animals, whether cats or dogs, to drink from puddles, as they would do in the wild. One just wonders why the creature would drink soapy water, it can’t taste too good.

        1. It’s funny, you’re the only person I’ve ever heard off who’s afraid of cats. Though I do remember your unpleasant encounter with them that you mentioned, so it makes sense that you’re not a huge cat person.

  3. I read, just the other day, that cats prefer moving water … that’s why they prefer to drink from the tap … or dip a paw in their bowl so it moves around a little. My Hadassah always did that. McDuff likes the liquid in the olive bottles!
