A Balancing Act

Chloe drinking out of the faucet. (Click pictures for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"The cat would eat fish, but would not wet her feet." ~ English Proverb
Chloe is usually very graceful, every hair in place, every paw perfectly placed. Here she lets her love for dripping water overcome her and she balances precariously on the edge of the sink to lap a little water. Never mind that she has two electric water fountains with filters and dripping water available to her at all times, this is just better tasting. At least she has the "turned head technique" down pat; Rhett goes at the water head on, the drips hit his head and deflect just out of the reach of his tongue. Chloe does not want her head wet, nor does she wish to wet her delicate feet.

To see more cats and dogs and other creatures be sure to visit Friday's Ark and remember to stop by the Carnival of the Cats this Sunday hosted by Running Scared. (end of post)
