I wish my 8 YO male was that eager to drink water. I wouldn't have to force-feed him water 3 times a day.
I had a cat like that...I had to leave a faucet running to solve the problem;he just didn't like water unless it was very, very fresh.
I only wish it were that easy. He's usually pretty good about it all.

I wonder if there's something that could be added to the water to make it more tempting to them.

How about water from the tuna can?

I usually get tuna in oil. But the strange thing is, Gremlin rarely touches tuna. Maya goes wild over it, but Gremlin likes very little outside of what comes out of an actual cat food can or bag.

He's one of those "not so bright" ones I'm afraid.

I got a pet fountain for my cat for a few different reasons. And yes he is very spoiled. But he definitely drinks more water and that makes me happy.

Re: Feline Follies

I was going to suggest a fountain as well, if the cat really does need the freshest water possible and was turning his nose up at water from a dish. If it's a health concern, I'd say the fountain could be worth it.

As I put Diaper Kitty into her cage this morning, she went over to the litter pan, squatted, and one little drop of piddle (?) came out on command! Kinda weird to be happy about something like that, but it seems there's hope!

Yay!

It has to be rough on her being caged so much, so I hope there will be further improvements, for sure.

Re: Feline Follies

Actually, she kinda likes going in there. She doesn't like us having to put the diaper on (the process anyway, after it's on she's fine), plus she's able to groom parts she couldn't get to. Besides, it's a cage for a 100+ pound dog, so she has *plenty* of room!

Re: Feline Follies

That's really great news. I'd love to see more pictures of her whenever you have any!

Also I heard a noise and went to go see what the cat was doing. I couldn't find him at first. I keep forgetting that with a cat, you have to look up.

^My cats don't do that as often as they used to but every once in a while I'll hear them jump up.

Re: Feline Follies

I love images of cats on doors

None of the cats I've been around have ever done that! -But here's one who likes being up there, even if it's not on a door:

Re: Feline Follies

But how do they get up there - claw their way on the wall-paper? climb something hanging on the doors?

I mean, I put up cat-stairs and a couple of claw-boards for her... and the only other thing she climbs (to my knowledge) is the neighbours tree:
