COT: Weird Au

When Au was a kitten, he liked to watch water swirling down sinks, drains and toilet bowls. He hasn't done it for ages but last week he marched into the bathroom, propped his front paws up on the loo rim, and demanded I flush. When I did as he asked, he shouted MEOW-OW! with loud abandon and demanded I did it again.

The following day he elbowed me out of the way so he could watch water swirling into the mop bucket. As you can see, he's just fascinated.

Anyone else live with a cat who is into this type of entertainment?

Happy Tuesday!

How funny ! Arthur loves to play with water, sitting in the sink and asking me to open the tap just a little bit. That would keep him busy for a while and then he is completely wet !!

Yes, I have Aniwa who has a true
fascination with water. Plays with
water anywhere. Loves to watch dripping water faucets,puddles in
the tub and is always in the kitchen
sink. We cannot keep drinking water on the floor, she makes a big flood mess all over because she plays in it!

Apparently some cats are fascinated by moving water, sinks, buckets, etc.

I used to have a cat that was excited by "finding water", such as the puddles left after a shower. He always liked to discover new sources.

Au is funny...both Poppy and MeowMeow hates water...avoids my bathroom completely!

Au is very funny! We like to watch Mom do the dishes, but that's about all.

We wanted to Thank You for playing The Story Game today! Check back Thursday to read and see how it turns out!

LOL! That is just very cute indeed! The cat who used to live here before me (he died) loved to watch the water swirl too. He loved to watch water in the toilet, and he liked to drink water from the sink.

Very interesting.

In answer to your question on my blog today - don't know about a Floofy Friday group, but I am a member of the Floor and Fur group. Let me know what you find out.

My Jazzy loves dripping water faucets. She would demand me to let the water flow freely & she would just drink from it.She also loves following me into the bathroom but stays away when she knows it's her own bathtime!

Very cool, Au! :) We both like to play with water from the tap, yet we don't enjoy our weekly baths. Our humans say we are weird.

Haha...that is so cute. Sesame sometimes check what is inside the toilet bowl but everytime I flush, he will run away. He also likes to play with the water in his water bowl.
