Is it just my cat, or do all cats prefer toilette water to clean tap water?

It seems to me that the quality of clean tap water is quickly approaching the quality of toilet water. Cats are just ahead of the game.

This is why a friend of ours named her cat 'John'.

Ah, but you're forgetting that toilette water is really just tap water, with a twist of anus.

I had a cat that only drank from the swimming pool. I think it was because the other cat would hunt chipmunks and drop them in the pool to watch them drown. It must have made the swimming pool taste like chipmunk tea.

I have found that cats prefer to drink fresh water, or water in motion. People often flush the toilet far more than they replace the water in the cat dish. Some cats flush the toilet themselves to get not only fresh water but also water in motion. Cats that drink out of toilets will be the same ones you will find drinking water out of dripping taps. I got my cat a water fountain and she now will only drink from that.

Maybe they just like to smell nice.

What's worst is cats who like to stand at the toilet when I'm standing there using the toilet for what it's meant to be used for.

I also had a cat that loved to watch the toilet when it was flushed; so much that it would run from the other side of the house whenever it heard the toilet flush. That was a disturbed kitty; it also jumped into the tub once because it curious why it was being filled. I never saw anything walk* on water until that day.


* - I probably should have put run here

Growing up, my cat preferred to drink water left in the tub after a shower was just taken. She would actually wait outside the bathroom door while I showered so she could jump into the tub and drink the water as soon as the door opened.

Because it was Aaron-flavored. Be afraid.

They're just celebrating World Toilet Day! Now get your face in there and have a drink along with them to join in the festivities.

That cat has been reincarnated into my cat. This is the same weirdo who cries heavily when I'm holding a rubber band, jumped on my stomach while I was sleeping (see story), and likes to spin around in a chair like it's at the fair.

My cats get their water fountain (yes Water FOUNTAIN) refilled from a Brita pitcher.

They love it and the fountain keeps the water aerated.

Heh, my dog still prefers water from the tap...
