Anipal Photo Hunt: What The Heck Is That Thing!??

Welcome to this week's Anipal Photo Hunt.




So this is the thing... Last month, Mom and Dad suddenly began denying me my greatest joy in life: Drinking out of the bathtub faucet. I used to drink from the dripping faucet while listening to my lovely bride @jazzydacat meowing at me through the drain hole. (She lives in London, and it's the best way for us to communicate.) Dad insists it's bad for the plumbing somehow and I was cut off cold turkey. It's not something I recommend to any cat Moms or Dads out there, FYI. It's been brutal.

To add insult to injury, Mom ordered some crazy contraption through the mail, and when it got her, she  put it in my room, filled it with water, (get this) PLUGGED IT IN, and it started making weird noises! Water started gurgling and then coming out of the middle of the thing in a stream down into the bowl.

They insist that it's mine - like that's a good thing. They had the nerve to call it a Gotcha Day present!  : /  Srsly. Who's idea was this?? It says China on it. Is this what they call Chinese water torture? 
Chinese Water Torture
Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse, Mom took away my water bowl, so if I want to drink water, I HAVE to drink out of this whachamacallit - and try to avoid getting my ears wet! What the duck?? It has this stupid stream of water that I have to twist my neck around to avoid. I have a sneaking suspicion they think that this is in some way a replacement for water streaming out of the bathtub faucet. What part of "that thing is not a bathtub faucet" do they not get??

It's been more than a week now, and they continue to expect me to drink out of this gizmo. Hopefully, they'll get tired of it and throw it away, and let me back into the tub.

I'm considering starting a petition.

I can't believe you don't like your fountain. We love ours! We were playing in it and splashing so much Mom had to put a big plastic thing under it to catch the water. MOL We love love love our fountain.

I couldn't have said it better! Peeps bought me one of those things—albeit a cheap one—and expected me to drink from it. After a month, the experiment was over and the thing sits on the counter and takes up space. Was that thing NOISY!

We have one of those... and we actually use it! Amazingly, we like it.

Mom is being dense but she can't figure out what picture she has to hunt for. Are we supposed to do odd things we can't figure out? We enjoyed your post, she just can't figure out what we're supposed to do. Sorry she is so dense. Well, actually I don't know either ... Maybe it is one of those secretive cat things?

Yes, Yoda. Post a pic of something you just can't figure out. ; )

Ma would get us one of htose, but we would still spash it all over. Make sure your ma keeps that thing clean. The PH of the water can drop. Keep the filter clean. After it has sat with water in it for 3 days take a sample in to Petco and see what the ph is. Also if you have hard water, clean it out with CLR everyonce in a while.

I know your mom & dad take good care of you, but tell them to make sure you have a water bowl you're happy drinking from. Drinking water is very important for your kidneys. It's way more important than drinking from a fountain.

We have a fountain and Raven drinks from it but Sammi won't. She doesn't like the noise, even though it's one with a smooth waterfall and all you can hear is the quiet little pump inside the base.

Hopefully you'll learn to like your fountain. In the meantime, a nice colorful water bowl in the bathtub will make both you and your dad happy. You can talk with your kitty love and dad doesn't have to keep the water running.
