    Hi Panda - my cousin's cat does that. She leaves the kitchen tap dripping the whole time for him! ppl visiting have to be told NOT to turn it off. I think it's a kind of primeval thing where they 'know' that running water is cleaner than standing water. :-D

    Yep! She sure does!!! IN fact, even when the faucet is off she will sit there hoping for a drip.

    We bought a drinking fountain for the animals thinking it would cure her of this habit, but nope! She still prefers it out of the faucet!

    Cici does this - she will sit on the counter & wait for me to turn it on for her. My other one, Inky, will drink out of the toilet...

    Me too! If I even look like I am going to the bathroom Molly races in, sits on the counter and makes her most 'dying of thirst, helpless kitty' impersonation!

    No, my cats aren't allowed on the counters or tables, but the picture is so cute of your cat. I've had cats all my life. Mine are 17 yrs. and 12 yrs. old.

    Wow,I didn't imagine there would come up so many kitties that do the same as he does. I have hadsome kitties, but he is the only one who is not afraid of water.
    It is funny to discover that we call this kind of cats American Short Haired here, I know you call them Domestic Short Haired, right? LOL

    I have terrible allergies, so all of the cats I have owned have gotten baths regularly. They learn to love them. BooBoo and now Boots will get into the shower with you. Lola hasn't quite gotten into it yet.

    My cat started this habit when my faucet leaked in my apartment during college. I told the land lord and he didn't fix it, he paid the water bill and the cat loved the dripping faucet it was a win win situation. That was until I moved and won't let the faucet drip for her all day. I know I am a mean mean mean mom. She tells me all the time when I won't turn it on. It has been over a year but she will still beg and plead for me to turn the water on.

    Her newest is to drink the bath water when I am taking a bath. She just moves the bubbles out of the way :)

    It's my boy cat's primary water source. Unfortunately since the boss lady cat died, he has to wait for a human to turn on the water. The late kitty would turn it on but never turned it off. He can open doors so he's not completely useless.

    I have one male cat, Jake, who will drink from a water or milk glass by dipping his paw into the glass and then licking off the liquid. We did have a cat who would drink from the running faucet but he would also drink from the bowl if he had to which was most of the time. My other male cat, Romeo, will drink from my coffee cup if it's cool enough and close to the top of the cup. I do cover that with a suacer usually but my DD doesn't always remember this so sometimes she doesn't even drink her coffee b/c Romeo got there first.

    My Little Girl ALWAYS has to taste test what I am drinking. Doesn't matter what it is. I guess she needs to make sure that whatever mom is drinking is safe. lol
    I've had paws, tails and little tongues in my drinks.
    Now...for those of you thinking.....does she drink after the cat has done this? Well......hmmm.......what do you think? ;)

    How can I type this with tears in my eyes from laughing?
    That is truly the funniest cat's water enjoyment! One of my cats dips her paw into the water bowl and licks the water off. She does this several times -- dip and lick -- and then takes a drink directly from the bowl. I thought that was pretty funny til I saw this video.

    My kitty (Sampson) used to do that when he was alive. And get in the shower with me. He loved water. He was quite the talker too. Well, my whole family has thier own little stories they still tell about him and what he did to or with them. LOL!

    Both my cats prefer the faucet to the dish... but weren't interested in a fountain I put down for them.
    The funny thing is that the boy cat drank out of the faucet first and taught the girl cat to do it too.
    One of the first things I have to do in the morning is be sure to turn the water on for them, they're waiting for a drink!
