PECULIAR CAT HABITS

There are two kitty water bowls on the back porch.
I always fill them with fresh water at the same time.  And no matter
where the Zoolatry Girls may be, they come for a taste of the fresh water.
However ~ the Magster has this peculiar habit ~
As you can see, Zoey drinks and Zoey drinks.  And it matters not whethers she drinks
a little, or drinks a lot.  Maggy will sit there, and Maggy will sit there.
And then Maggy will watch Zoey walk away.  And wait until Zoey has walked
away ~ far away.  And then, and only then, will Maggy
approach her bowl (the other bowl) and drink.
Always.  It's never any different.  It's always like this.  Peculiar.

  1. Cats sure do some funny things.. Is she afraid she's going to get whapped? Or just wants to stay away so she isn't inclined to give a whap?

  5. Guess Maggie feels like she will let Zoey test the water and if she likes it, she will just wait and drink out of that one. She is not dumb. Hope you all got through the Tropical Storm all right. It is raining like crazy here too. Take care.

  6. Zoey's little tongue must flavor the water with just that right taste that Maggy likes.

  11. Hmmm, maybe she likes to drink alone:)

    When Lightning wants a drink, he just pushes his head right in front of the others and gets his taste. Phantom ALWAYS waits for the water bowl station to be free of all other pups.

    Happy weekend.

  13. Have you tried moving Maggy's bowl around the corner? Maybe she's afraid of getting thwopped.

    Or it could be some sort of sign of respect -- letting Zoey go first.

  14. Don't you wish you could figure out what she's thinking and why she has to wait to be alone to drink? Very peculiar indeed. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

  15. That really is a strange habit.
    Our guys just share a bowl.

  16. Um, we have a similar habit. Iza especially wants to watch the others eat before she decides its safe. Then she wants to eat ALL the foods. And Marley wants to eat a little out of all the bowls in case they have differnt foods (as they sometimes do).
