Confession of a Tub-aholic
Well I am revealing more of myself yet again. So here it goes: I really don't even remember how it this obession came about. Other than the fact that it seems all the boy kitties in our home have this fascination of the tub. You may wonder why not the fancy ceramic bowls that mom got us? I truly think though the water in the ceramic bowl gets stale. Mom a few years ago even got us waterfall drinking fountain. That didn't last very long either, we would all dab our paws in it. It got to where we thought of it as more of a plaything than to drink from it. We would splash water from it and get it all over the floor. Also, we didn't like it near our food bowls so mom even placed it on a mat in the dining room. One day she came home from work and to her amasement all the water was gone. We had splashed and played in it, the whole area around the mat was soaking mat. We were actually laughing at the whole ordeal. Our human dad had been letting the tub drip a little as in the winter months it is good to let the faucets drip when temperatures drop into the single digits. Mom noticed Tigger and Wally were the first she noticed drinking from it. One day though when she picked me up, guess what? My little toes were all wet. Mom said "Beaver why are your feet all wet. I just blinked my eyes and smiled. Later when mom goes to take her bath, she sees me sitting there just a lapping at the faucet. Now it is a battle sometimes to get me out of there so she can bath. She came up with a idea where when it is bath time it is also play time. She got us a bottle of catnip bubbles and so while she is soaking she blows me, Wally, and Pepe bubbles so it doesn't get the carpet sudsy. So there you have it- I confess I am a tub-aholic. Many purrs to each of you!
