Having a Drink at the Sink

Mr. Sunshine works hard for his drink.

Drinking from the faucet each day in the mint green sink, each of the Fantastic Four has a different style. I turn the faucet on to barely more than a drip, so it takes a little ingenuity to catch the water. I managed to catch two of them in the act, in part because they conveniently stand so that the light from the window angles onto them, unlike the other two who face the opposite direction and don’t have as much light on their faces.

Here, Mr. Sunshine laps at the water as it falls from the faucet. Lap, lap, lap, he wrinkles up his nose and usually ends up with his ears folded back and water all over his face. Well, they all end up with water all over their faces.

Below, Giuseppe discovered that if he just opened his mouth a little and held it under the faucet, the water would simply run in. How convenient!

    Guys, they grew up in the unimproved bathroom with the leaky faucets and so just presumed that was how you drank water in addition to the bowl. They run upstairs and wait, or try to coax me upstairs, after breakfast and dinner. Here’s the best photo of all four at the sink: https://portraitsofanimals.wordpress.com/2011/03/17/on-st-patricks-day-drink-straight-from-the-tap-2/

    This is so cool! My cat used to do this too when we had a water filter on the tubes. Now we don’t and I’m afraid to let her drink tap water.

    Giuseppe is so clever! 🙂
