Drinking water

In this hot weather it is extremely important for cats and their people to drink plenty of water. We have a big water bowl that is filled with fresh every day and I drink a lot of that - and Josie drinks some. She tops this up with water drunk straight from the tap if mum will turn it on for her. She says it is delicious and fresh but the whole awkward head angle thing puts me off. Josie also drinks from mum's glass if she can and this is what I thought I would try.

Mum has a big glass and was already half way through so I lowered my head right in. Achoo! The sides of the glass on my whiskers made me sneeze right into the water. I dipped my head in three times amd three times it happened.

Then Josie came up and told me I wasn't doing it right. When the glass is half empty you have to dip a paw in and lick the water off and she showed me. It's not very efficient and she had to do it several times.

And mum then said as her water had been sneezed in and then had paws dunked in it she wasn't so sure she felt like drinking it herself any more so the plants got the rest.

I think I will stick to my own water bowl in future as it doesn't make me sneeze.

MOL I stick to the water bowl too. You can't get you're head suck in there mate. Mind you that would've been quiet a site. I think Josie has the right idea dipping her paw in it then licking her paw. Much safer.

Josie is a very good teacher. Do you have any rainwater outside that you can try? Mom's cats when she was a girl always liked that.
