Is it Possible?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
that a cat can like water? Today, just for some fun, I put an icecube in thier waterdish and Tyran went nuts! She played with that icecube in the water dish until it melted and her paws were soaked.

I've also noticed she comes running when she hears the faucet turn on when I'm doing water changes on my fish tanks. We'll even play a game sometimes where i will take the syringe and shoot water at her paws and she'll try and catch it. If I ever tried to do this with Miki, she'd run away, shaking her paws as she went.

Is it possible Tyran actually likes water. I was thinking of trying to get her used to water altogether. Perhaps even get her used to taking a bath.

Yes it's possible, Baker comes in the shower with me whenever he's allowed to.

Two of mine love water and drink form the tap as well as trying to play in the bath water.

I have a spray bottle, not for the cats, but to give the parrot a bath. I once found Radar on the floor with it, wrapped around it and squirting himself with water. He is often slightly damp

Tyran just seems to love water. I'll see how far I can get her to go with water.

Friday doesn't let me take a bath without supervising. He doesn't even mind too much if I give him a bath. Hemmy would rather die than be wet. One time I got him to pounce a drop of water that I let run down the side of the tub. His face was so funny! He was thrilled to pounce it then dismayed. He shook his paw and wondered where his prey had gone! I'm so mean to my cats!

Junebug loves ice cubes. I place two or three in a shallow bowl and she spins them around. I'm not convinced she associates them with water nor knows she can drink the meltwater afterwards.

One thing I am sure of, she seems sad when they melt to nothing like she has lost a new friend.

Aww, that sounds precious!

How can you tell if your cat likes water...er, without traumatizing them, you know by splashing them with water or something. I've cared for a lot of cats in my life and only a few seemed to like water, at least going to the sink and stuff like that, but I never thought it was possible that a cat would enjoy a bath. That sounds neat! lol.

You can tell because they're fascinated by faucets

Willow went swimming once. It was about 90 degrees outside (and probably 95 in the apartment) so I put her harness on and walked/carried her to the little park up the street. They had a cement wading pool there, and I set her next to it. After a few moments, she tried to walk on the water and failed, stepping into it instead. Once in there, she just stood there for at least 5-10 minutes while I laughed and called my mom to describe the scene. At that point, I told Willow it was time to go home because it was getting dark. Instead of turning around and walking out, she swam across the pool! Then I picked her up and carried my soaking wet cat home.

I haven't tried her with water since, but it was really, really funny.

cloud shade that is hilarious that Willow went swimming.

My cat (megabyte) Loves running faucets and loves to play in the bath tub if the faucet is dripping!
