Drinking fountain

I will admit it... our cats are SPOILED!! Instead of drinking out of a water dish, they have what we refer to as the "kitty fountain."

As you can see, it is essentially a water purification system for cats. Now, in our defense, I bought this for Lex when I was in college, so if you hear us talk about being poor know that this was not a recent purchase.

That said, our cats seem to really enjoy it. Lex drinks with his feet (we've been told that is a characteristic of Maine Coon cats which he might be). Pixie prefers to get her tongue right up to the spout where the water is coming out, which makes her the noisiest of the three.

And Sylvester? Well why would he want to drink out of the kitty fountain when he could do this:

This morning when I got up I found him, where else, in the bathtub. Only this time he was staring up and I couldn't figure out what he was doing. Then a drip fell from the washcloth we hang from the shower head. Apparently he couldn't get any water out of the spout and was resigning himself to waiting for drops from the washcloth.

In the bathtub he is a full 10 to 15 feet away from the kitty fountain. Don't you think it would have been easier to drink out of that then to wait for drips from the washcloth?
