A Cool Drink on a Hot Day

Four at the Faucet

How many cats can drink from a sink faucet at one time? Looks like four is about the maximum. It was all a blur.

I keep having the intention to get these guys a fountain waterer, but, selfishly, I would miss the habit of every day, Jelly Bean coaxing me upstairs, everyone racing me when I finally do go up, leaping into the bathroom and getting in position for the faucet to magically start dripping water, and watching them happily drink and getting beads of glimmering water in their black fur.

But their birthday is coming up—July 26, the Big Four will be four years old! Perhaps that might be a good present for them. Well, we’ll see.
