My new bundle of joy - Mr Gatsby has one weird habit. We put out
fresh water for him regularly throughout the day but everytime
we are around either the kitchen or bathroom sinks he will try
drinking from the faucet instead.
For example every morning when i shave he always jumps onto the
bathroom sink and starts drinking from the faucet. Which makes
shaving really difficult.
My last two cats used to look at a running faucet for about
3 - 5 seconds - get bored then leave. Mr Gatsby seems obsessed
with faucet water.
Is there something about running sink water that he might be
attracted to? I would think he would find drinking from a fresh
bowl a lot easier to do.
I really do not mind him doing this but i am wondering how
sanitary this is. We do wash the sinks out but i have seen
his tongue touch the part of the faucet where the water shoots
out from. Should i break him of this habit? When there are
dishes in the sink we do take him down but thats it.
