I like drinking out of faucets. It really is the best, freshest water in the house. And it makes the humans your servant, standing beside you and waiting for you to stop drinking, watching, batting at, and playing with the running water. We tried having a recycling drinking fountain a while ago, but Moose kept putting food in it and clogging it up. Eventually the humans got tired of fixing it and told us we'd just have to go back to a big bowl of water.
I can't decide if I like drinking out of the tub faucet or the sink faucet more. The tub, I have to balance on a tippy ledge to reach it. The sink, I have to crouch down into the basin to reach it. I feel that the humans need to install a new one in the sink that reaches up for me, and a platform in the tub so I can balance easily. And then I could fully just debate which one tasted better.
The other problem I have it that I haven't quite trained Mom yet. If it's day light and her glasses are on, she can see me run down the hallway and turn the faucet on for me right when I get in there. I love that! But if it's night time, it's dark and her glasses aren't on, and she just doesn't see me till I stand in front of her and scream in her face! Then she kinda wakes up and turns on my faucet for me. I have to drink quick with Dad, because when he's done in the bathroom, my water gets shut off! But luckily Mom seems to be trained well enough to just sit and pet me till I'm done drinking. Thought they both seem to shut off my water when I'm just sitting an watching it flow. Hey! I was watching that!
Yeahhhh, faucets are the best.

It's always much easier to train Mom than it is to train Dad. We've got a fountain, so I don't go for the sink or tub. Rose and Callie like to drink from the tub, but they'll jump in the tub and sit right in front of the faucet.
That's a great technique! But when I try that I get splashed on when the water misses my tongue... It's so fun training humans!
I wish I could drink out of the faucet. The MRS. said she is not going to start that habit! MOL! Congrats on your diary pick today!
We dido Newmans comment. But we do love our water fountains. Zoe and I drink from the pool Gris drinks straight from the fountain part.
