My two B&W Tuxedo girls, Lucy and Ethel, could not care one bit less about water. Lucy might
get in the shower with me, if not for the sprinkles, because she follows me everywhere else.
Gone-but-not-forgotten B & W tuxies Jelly and Pudley were also NOT fond of water.
On the other hand, our silver tabby Izzy loves it and plays in the sink. Our brown tabby Ricky Bobby uses his polydactyl paws to shovel the toilet water onto the floor and
himself when he finds the opportunity.
Finally, my dearly departed Elvis, grey tabby tuxie, would sit on the side of the tub and threaten to hop in with me. He poked around with his paws, but I was afraid he would shred me if he ever really got in!
I suppose it is a personality thing, not a color/pattern issue. It is interesting how many kitties do like or don't mind water - kind of throws cold water
on that myth, huh?
