The Fascination of Ferris

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Little feral Ferris never saw anything like it in his days out in the wild woods of Massachusetts where he was born. There wasn't anything like it at his foster home, either. He can't help but be intrigued: It moves constantly, makes an interesting sound, and deliciously refreshes a thirsy little kitten...



He stares at it for many minutes at a time...



It's just so...so...FASCINATING!!!!

Last night I was playing with the lever that controls the flow of water in the fountain. I was making it go slow and quiet for him, then cranking it up so it made a cool noise and bubbles in the water - he was SO into it!!!

That's SO cute!!! LuckyGirl would stare at the ceiling fan, and her head would go in a circle, around and around following the blades....it was so funny....and Louie, he wants to jump up and get the pull chain that turns the light on....he'll sit & stare at it with such a look....you know he's thinking "now how can I get that????"

I think we have mutual kitten envy. I'm in love with Davidson!

My girls do the same thing!!!

Mine are soo smart now that they can take the filter off the top of the water thing, and bring it into the living room.. I have a feeling they are trying to tell me something...

Pixel likes ice in her water, so i put ice in the fountains each morning & evening. Pixel will come running in to drink. Cable sits & stares at the ice, & sometimes attempts to remove it!

Thank you so much - I think so too!!!

I don't think I can call him feral anymore - he's turning into a little cuddle-bug. I actually was able to clip a couple of his claws last night while he was on my lap begging for cuddles!

He took a swipe at me and tried to bite me though, once he decided that he'd had enough of me touching his paws. I immediately scruffed him, hissed in his face, then eased up on his scruff while continuing to pet him and tell him what a good boy he is.

He was a teeny bit freaked out, but within 3 minutes was being all cuddly and sweet again! I continued to pet him (and put the clippers away, doing just a few claws worked for me, considering it was the very first time I'd tried!) and he just lolled all over my lap trying to make sure I got every inch of him that he wanted loved.

He's such a special boy - as much as I love the cuteness of a kitten, I'm really looking forward to his years as a cat, because he is just going to make THE best little companion! And Ginger is getting along with him better and better every day. Yay!

I have one of those things out in the garage that I had completely forgot about until I saw your photos. It has been out there for years but now I think I will hook it up again. Of course the bad news is I got to go out in the garage and try and find it (but I know it is there somewhere).

Betsy, I have always been plotting a way to steal your Ferris.......like, when are you not home?

Ferris has grown into a lovely cat.

Much also has a fascination with her fountain, staring at it for ages. She also will paw the bubbles every once in awhile.

I am SO not telling! Besides, you'd have to fight Trouts Mom for him.

It looks like she has the same one I do, the Drinkwell Fresh Water Fountain.

Yes, that's it exactly, and it has to be one of THE best cat care equipment investments I've made so far. It keeps Ginger out of the sink, and Ferris occupied.

And they both drink about 6-8 ounces a day from it, each.

It's been a godsend for us because Much was so prone to UTIs and it increased her water intake a lot.
