All aboard the Friday Ark! Let's go Weekend Cat blogging!

Yay! It's Friday again! And that means that it's time to board the Friday Ark.

It's also time for Weekend Cat Blogging # 106 being hosted this week by the gracious Puddy over at A Byootaful Life.


Well, KC got so excited that she did a flip and a little dance. Then she got thirsty and rushed on over to her favourite watering hole - a little place known as "The Plant Container!"


That plant water must have tasted really really good. I lifted her and put her in front of her water bowl that contained freash clean filtered water. She took one look at it and went straight back to "The Plant Container". I poked and prodded her while she was drinking and she just continued lapping up this gloriously filthy water.

What is it about dirty water that attracts cats so? :-D

Maybe it's the nutrients in the plant water? Dunno but my kitties will also do the same despite me giving them fresh water.

yeah maybe because it tastes different.

momma maded us some bowls with water and sand and stones and some have even waterplant in it. They're all ours and we love to drink from them.

we don't like a simple bowl of fresh water...

My cats do the same thing. It is interesting to learn that other cats also love that plant water in the plant coaster. (The plant never gets enough water!)

boo - Maybe what I should start doing is pouring plant water in their water bowl! Ha!

hot - :) True! But how do you explain them drinking the toilet bowl water? hmmm...

astrid, kashim & othello - hmmm, there's a thought.

bonnie - I'm beginning to think that if my cat does some weird thing there are at least 100 cats that also do it. lol.

its the mineral content in the plant water. Greetings to you and June.

Since I am not good at gardening, I don't have any plants in the house so the kitties have never tasted "plant water"! However, Willow loves drinking water from a beer pitcher on top of the refrigerator!

I think the reason is just that it's standing water in an interesting place. Cats get bored easily :P.

Pia K said...

What a lovely tortie KC is:)

chat katze said...

She has a lovely personality as well pia k.

kirk boyer, I love that. Cats do get bored easily! Ha!

sammawow, I guess kirk is right. As long as it's standing water in a place that's not their designated water bowl they'll drink from it. Little rebels. :)
