She may have had some young kittens but no mom to feed them. Cow milk would not have been appropriate for them.

Drinking water from a running faucet: all I can say is, what a waste of water!

The only reason I can see is that the cat has no tongue to lap with. Otherwise, a precious resource goes down the drain.

Yes. I live in Southern California. Water is scarce.

I was thinking the same thing Helen! Is was great to see, but not for almost 3 minutes! What a waste of water! It was hilarious, though!

Thanks for the videos, fruitbat! I was at the book store today and saw a second Simon's Cat book!

The one thing we don't have a shortage of in Scotland is water.

Actually most cats prefer running water to drink from. The only reason you don't see it "normally" is that it is not offered to them. We bought a cat fountain that continually runs a bubbler. All of my cats love it - they have four other water dishes but they barely touch them.

Oh that's a good idea :D I must tell my sister, her Sandy does not touch the water in his bowl and she is always stepping in it.

HAMMACHER SCHLEMMER has a nice cat fountain (a little pricey though) this one is good because most of it is ceramic as opposed to plastic. My cats really love it. You can find some plastic ones cheaper - like from Fosters & Smith.

That's so funny. To tease Allie, we sometimes put those little fruit code stickers on her back fur to see how long it takes her to remove them. Loads of fun . . . for us. :cool:

Up until the last 10 seconds, it reminded me of a Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote cartoon. No way the coyote would not kill the bird if he had half a chance.

tres cute!
