In summer it is really important for cats (and mums) to keep hydrated. Josie and I have a big bowl of water and every day mum switches it for a clean bowl and fresh water...but we still like her water glass the best.
Mum likes to see us drink as it's healthy so she thought she would be clever. Two water glasses - one wide at the top for easy cat access; one more narrow for her. We both had a drink from our glass and agreed it was good. Then I had a drink from mum's glass to compare. Much the same really. Mum sighed and said that wasn't the plan.
So then mum tried filling our glass conveniently to the brim and hers only half-full. Now the best kitty food comes in tiny tins - if there's less of something it's usually tastier - so we both went for mum's glass this time and topped up from the other glass when we could reach no more.
She might as well give up. Josie and I share a bowl happily so I don't know where she gets the idea she should have one of her own from!

I always go after my momma's glass too!
My mum drinks a lot of water. I don't mind it but I can take it or leave it most of the time. Mum likes to know two things that I've done in the day. Eaten and had something to drink.
How about a lid and straw for your mom?
I agree with Monster. If yer mum doesn't want you and Josie to share her water glass with you, she should use a lid with a straw in it. That would solve the problem...
Your Mum needs to learn how to share. The humans always wants us cats to share. They need to purractice what they preach.
