Would you like that on the rocks?

Well, of course it's much better that way. This is Sugar, the 14 year old matriarch of the tribe here. She loves ice. In fact both of my kitties come running when they hear the ice machine going. So, I often fill up the water bowl with ice, but of course if you have a nice cold glass of water sitting around it's free game. Tsk, tsk, so unlady-like, when she usually drinks water like this....

Dips paw gently in...


and licks it off.

Hi, Kimmie! That is soooo funny! When it gets really hot here, I've put ice in our kitties' water dish, but they look at me like I've contaminated it! They don't know what to do with it at all. I'm glad someone's kitties have figured out what to do with ice! (We do have a rascal that will stick her head into unattended drinks, though ... tsk tsk!) :-)

She sure is a cutie...
One of my cats drank with her paw also. I though it was so cute.

Hahahaa! I love it. I don't think I've ever seen one dunk their entire head into a glass, but I have seen the "paw swipe" routine where kitties stick there paw into water or food, scoop it up, then lick the paw! Cute!

That is too cute! I caught my cat, chloe, with her head in my glass of tea months ago and wondered how often we shared a drink!

Cute!! My puppy loves ice cubes, too. Every time I open the fridge and get out ice --- BAM! He's there for some, too. Hee hee

LOVE your artwork!

Love your kitty here... funny, I guess licking water off paws is more popular among felines than I had realized. We have two cats, and one of them does have a drinking problem... to the point of being neurotic about it. We filmed her and posted it to YouTube about a year ago... hugely popular video btw, been watched all of 800 times. Well ok, maybe not as popular as Susan Boyle... you can see it here, if curious ...

Ah, what would we do without cats to serve... they are the masters of the planet... :-D
