The water was on much too hard for a cat to try lapping it directly
with a tongue - that technique works for gently flowing water. This
cat found one way to slow the water down, and clearly didn't seem to
mind the stream hitting his head.

He seemed to like the way it felt on his ears.

Seems more like he was trying to cool
off on a hot day and the drinking was a
side benefit

Not so dumb -- just killing two birds with one stone. The cat needed
his/her hair washed and it also felt good on a hot day to have a cold
drink. MLB

Is it just me, or do the owners need a good smack upside the head?

This is not funny, it's cruel. They could turn the faucet down to a
trickle, or better they could put some water in a bowl.

It's not cruel, and /is/ a little funny. Remember that you can't
make cats do what they don't want to do (well, /I/ can't). :) The cat is
fine. The problem here is with the owners (or whoever) that has labeled
the cat "dumb".
In my experience, those cats that drink flowing water from the tap,
actually prefer it that way, and ask for it. Given a choice between
water in a bowl, and flowing, they would choose flowing every time.

I had a cat that used to come into the shower with me - on the outside
of the shower curtain though. He didn't like water hitting him, but he
liked to play with the streams of water flowing along the bottom of
the tub. I made sure he didn't get the soapy water of course. It was
rough on my toes though if they strayed under the curtain.

I have one of those pet fountains where the water free-falls a bit
before hitting the plastic ramp. Nipsy and Marlo lap it up from the
bowl, but Espy likes to get it in midair.

That's what Holly used to do. She liked a slower stream of water, but she
would stick her head under it and turn it back and forth. Sometimes, she
would even get down in the sink and roll around. I even have a video of her
doing that "somewhere." She hasn't done that for several years, though.

I know! That's what I thought was so funny.

One of my cats jumps up on the shower door and meows pitifully when I'm in
the shower and then stops crying as soon as turn off the water. Its like
she feels bad that I'm getting wet.

I think the neatest thing was that the camera was positioned so we could see
his little face the whole time. :) He (like 9 trillion other gray tabbies
out there) looks a lot like my Gracie. :)

My favorite part was near the end when he kept his ear under the stream. It
was like he was taking a shower and it looked like felt so good to him. lol

Scarlett is a gray tabby too. Though, her stripes and spots are hard to
see. I see them better with my glasses on, so it's probably just me.

I don't think the cat is dumb at all- he just likes water. Whoever thought
up the name for the video isn't too bright.

If I manage to sneak in the shower and close the door before she gets in,
she sits outside the bathroom and howls in a crescendo-- as if I was
increasing the intensity of her torture-- until I open the door. By that
time, my all my other cats are sitting there looking to see what she's
howling about.

Yeah, it gets on my nerves. Hey Phil, this is a weird request, but will you
let me know if you come across any tiny baby female siamese looking kittens
that need homes? I absolutely HATE this, but this is the only kind of cat my
husband wants. I have never even raised a baby, but he raised Boo from a
baby and is convinced this is why she was so wonderful. I am willing to pay
transport and the usual shelter fees, but draw the line at supporting
breeders. Plus, I don't want one of those overbred freak looking Siamese
cats. He wants a seal point looking baby, dark brown paws and face, blue
eyes, creamy tan body. (My preference would be to go to the shelter and let
the cat choose me as I did with Gracie.) We will drive up and get her. (I
know he is being ridiculous but what can I do?)

Sure. But are you sure you want to go though my pre-adoption interroga-- I
mean, "interview"?

They're a litter of 5. The single kitten in the first picture and the black
kitten and the tabby in the second picture are all part of the same litter.
They're about 13-14 weeks in the picture. We received about 150 calls about
the Siamese mixes on the first day.

Didn't know about it! I'll go look. But I suspect they will have older cats,

Just as I suspected it would be. I think the compromise will be that we will
have a kitten, but not a Siamese mix.

Phil, I love them all. I work at home most of the time, so it would probably
be a good arrangement. What I really want is siblings. If you find me a
Siamese-looking baby, I will take siblings. What I want most of all is to
save another cat or two, and the dood who is paying half the mortgage and
bills says he wants a Siamese-looking kitten, and he is still grieving for
his sweet Boo who died in March, so I that is what I will get.. We have ONE
cat, what a waste, right, when they are dying every day.

I noticed. But you know I would be happy with any cat at all. My husband
raised Boo from a tiny kitten, her mother had been killed, and he adored her
so he believes this is what it takes to have a loving cat. (He has seen my
adult rescues who, although loving, have their quirks, like running from us
anywhere in the house except in one room, where she loves to be lavished
with petting and brushinngs.) He really does not want three cats, but he
could never say no to a pair of baby siblings. To tell the truth, though I
have always adopted adults because everyone else wants kittens and leaves
the adults behind, my sister raised siblings and I love the way they cuddle
and play.

So the deal is, if you can find a Siamese baby, and I pass your screening
interview (you know I will be the primary caregiver, but we can make him
take it too) I will take two kittens, and I don't think they would have to
be siblings, would they, to play together? For this we would drive on up
there, if you had the time to arrange it. (If he can have his Siamese
looking baby, he will not bitch about three cats, see what I mean?)

And, we have three levels in this house, one for each cat to have his/her
own territory. AND we are about to have his Dad move in, who is a total
sucker for kittens, cats, all creatures, and he is retired. I think it is a
good set-up, and you know me from over the years. But yeah, if you are
willing to help us find the kittens, we will take any test/answer any
questions you want. And I am the one paying, so whatever you want.

Man, it just hit me. Taking a kitten (or two) on a ten-hour car ride is a
bit much, isn't it? You's probably better place them closer to home. I
should just go to the shelters and the pound regularly, but that rips my
heart out. Guess I should just buck up.

You think that's a bit much? You want some perspective? I've always wanted
to adopt one of the cats at the sanctuary at Torre Argentina in Rome. They
say some of the cats are descendents of Ceasar's cats. I already have the
perfect name for him: "Marcus Ailurelius" - a play on Marcus Aurelius.

I usually don't like to adopt cats too far away because if the adoption
doesn't work out the people might be reluctant to drive 200-300 miles to
return a cat they don't want. I've made exceptions- but they're rare.

I'm sure you'll find the kittens you're looking for close to your home.

Wow, that's neat. I love the story of Rum. I wonder if they meow with an
Italian accent? ;)

Hiding from the shelters because all the great cats that deserve homes don't
get them is stupid, so I will work on that. I think the only way we will get
what my husband wants is for me to go often. The real challenge will be to
keep me from trying to bring them all home!
