In Which Abby Dares A New Way To Wash

Abby: This morning I was hanging out on Mr. R's desk, when I noticed this glass of water sitting lonely and unattended. Obviously, that means it's my glass of water! What should I do with it first? Maybe I should try taking a drink, I bet it's fresher than the water in my bowl.


(muffled voice) I don't think this is going to work very well. I'm afraid if I put my head in any further, I will not be able to get it out, and that would be too embarrassing.

This works a lot better! I can dip my paw in, I get a sip of the fresh water, and cleaner paws too. I am going to spend a long time doing this, with both front paws.

Dip, and lick. Dip, and lick. Repeat until happy and satisfied. You know what? I can't believe no one stopped me today. The usually do everything possible to stop me from getting into their glasses.

Finally, I present this teeny tiny how-to video in case anyone didn't get the idea:

What a clever technique. We really like the way you're using alternate paws. You made the humans smile ;-)

I'm so glad you didn't put your head in, Abby. You could've ended up on YouTube!

Pawsome! Literally!
Chilli is not doing worse but still has some strange symptoms. If she's not better by tomorrow she'll be taken to the vet. She's pretty lively though so we're positive it's not something really, really bad.
Purrs!

Thank you for the how to video. Some glasses are hard to get your head into, and this works well.

Mr. Black said...

You're quite a character Abby.

You know, if you dip your paws in water near the fridge, you can sort of paint with wet paws on the fridge door. It leaves very creative smudges...very abstract. The lady's cat Addie did this.

Abby...you are one smart girlcat figuring out how to drink and wash at the same time!

Clever girl, Abby! We have it a bit easier than you - Mom only has low tumblers, so it's much easier for us to stick our heads in!

I don't understand cat's obsession with cups. My cat does the same thing, but normally, the contents of the cup ends up all over the floor :)

Do you want to win a new bed or toys for your cat?
