Photo Hunt 51: Water

Baby was the kitty before me. He just adopted Mom and Dad one day. Baby loved water. He would play in it more than drink it. He would always use his paw, putting it in the water, then sucking or licking the water off his paw.

Mom and Dad always kept the toilet seat lids down, because Baby would sit and play in the toilet for hours if they didn't. But he had a sixth sense for when one of them forgot to put the seat lid down! I know Mom and Dad love me very much, but they do miss Baby, who went to the bridge due to cancer when he was only 3 years old. I hope he gets to play in all the water he wants there!

Hey, it's an indoor swimming pool! I hope that Baby has all the water he wants to play in now, too, and he can play in it for an eternity.

How funny ! Arthur only watches the water going but never plays with still water. Have you ever seen the video which is on Internet where a cat pushs on the toilet flasher and then looks what happens. The owner filmed this because he noticed that his water invoice was so high ! Not an invention real true !

Baby was a lovely cat. He must have been crazy to play in water though. ;) I have to have a bath once a week and it's no fun!

I hope Baby has all the water he wants to play in now too.

Daisy said...

Oh, Baby was very cute! I am sorry he went to the bridge when he was still so young.

Cute pictures. How sad that Baby had such a short life. My sister Hattie used to play on the toilet so my humans got into the habit of keeping the lid down all the time, they still do this even though she has been gone for 3 years. I am not interested in the bathroom at all and never go in there.

We're sure that Baby had a wonderful life for the short time he was here because your parents are so good to you Tara!! He probably has lots of toilets to play in all day now!

Oh what a doll. How sad, such a short life....

Momma put the seat down cuz the meezers are in there and she worries about them. We don't know what to think of them, so we run upstairs. Momma says we are anti-soshul.

This is great... a couple of ours will check out the toilet too but not to play. Hmm. Could this have been the cat in that famous video of the flushing toilet?

Riley & Tiki said...

Mommy has to keep our toilet lids closed too, so we don't play and fall in. Than you for sharing Baby with us.

TorAa said...

Fabulous
Most people are not aware of cats interests for water. At least our two Manx are...

Really good captures

Our Noah likes to see what's going on in the toilet, too.
I'm sure there is a grand creek at The Rainbow Bridge that Baby is enjoying :)

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

What a cute little house panther! The Lady makes sure our toilet seats are always closed also - not because any of us would play in there, but because I jump up without looking.

Our sisfur Emily is all about the toilet too. One time, before I was here, daddy left the seat up and Emily fell in, ran up to daddy and shook it off. Mamma says it serves him right.

PowersTwinB said...

Phoebe said...

I used to drink out of the toilet, but I kicked the habit. Denis and Tracy usually keep the lids down now anyway.

Baby was cute.

Jake and Bathsheba said...

Thanks for sharing photos of Baby. It's a shame his life was so short.

We have no interest in toilet water. I like to drink water out of the bathroom sink, but now that I'm 15 1/2, I have trouble jumping that high. I like to jump on the toilet seat, then jump up to the sink. I just give Mom a pleading look when I want to jump up, and Dad has left the toilet cover or seat up. It works every time.

What a sweet boy. Mom had/has two boys who liked to fish in the water and then suck the water from their paws: Pumpkin and Percy. It's interesting how only the few do this ... That makes them more special, right?

Oh how very sad to lose Baby at only 3 years old. I have to confess, I have been caught drinking from the toilet before now. I know, I know, it is disgusting but I have to do it to ensure my water bowl is replenished. Guilt, you see, it works wonders on humans.

Sad about little baby though, I hope he is playing at the vridge too.

Nice story. :) Funny and cute!

Cyclone Cats said...

Baby and my two siblings had something in common. Dazey likes to stick her paw in the water dish to lick off and Conner likes to play in the toilet too!
We are sorry he wnt to the Bridge when he was still so young.

Teena said...
