Hi Catsters, Viola's dad, think I need to tell this story for her. We had read that lots of kitties like to drink from running water, like running faucets and special kitty fountains. Having lost two much loved Egyptian Maus to kidney failure in the past, we like the idea of them drinking lots of water. We had noticed Viola and her sisfur Saphira drinking from the little ornamental fountain in our living room, so they clearly like running water too. Yesterday we received a kitty fountain we ordered from Petco, it was very inexpensive but received very good reviews. Both kitties behaved like typical Ocicats, very curious about the big new box and "helped" me open it and assemble it, very simple to do. I filled it and started it up, pretty quiet, nice thing since it is in our bedroom. I got back on the laptop and then a little later I heard the sound of water splashing! Wondering what could be going on, I looked over to see Viola playing in the fountain with her paws! Adding a picture I shot after quickly grabbing the camera to her profile, it was just too cute! This was not just a tentative paw in the water and back out, she had splashed water all over the place! The next day she jumped in bed with me and her paws were wet, so I knew where she was playing again! I think she likes it! I even see her drinking there once in awhile!
