Water in a bowl isn’t cool enough for Colby!
by Julie Dye
My sweet, yet finicky 2 year old brown spotted tabby, Colby, refuses to drink water out of his bowl, and therefore wakes me up at least twice a night crying. Why? Because he knows he has trained his Mommy well. So, through the routine we go… I pick him up, give him his kisses, bring him into the kitchen and set him on the counter (and this is a 19 pound Bengal!) He then looks at me expectantly until I turn on the sink faucet for him, and he then goes to town, drinking from the falling water for a couple of minutes, until he’s had enough.
He then usually turns around, lifts his tail, and struts away, and I just smile and shake my head at what a spoiled, but loved, baby I have. 🙂 (His 2 younger brothers, Jazz and Grimlin, both drink from their bowls and let Mommy sleep through the night, so I’m not sure where he gets this from!)
