Bella on Drinking

"I don't drink from the communal watering hole, thank you very much. No, I prefer fresh water from the tap. It's just so much more, well, civilized, don't you agree?

I mean, who wants to have to bend over (as if) and drink from a bowl that has been used by others? Like, gag me with a mouli. Ew.

My 'person' keeps saying something about my having to learn to turn the water on and off by myself. Uh. I don't think so. Like I need to lower my standards or something. Yea, right. Don't they know I'm the princess around here and they best obey my requests? Sheeesh.

Sometimes if I close my eyes really tight, I pretend I'm under a beautiful waterfall. Doesn't it look relaxing? Yep, it is. But then I start feeling wet; and ew, I need to get out of there!"

This is too funny! Teeny-Tiny does the same thing! Jumps up on the bathroom counter and lets us know she wants a drink! Wherever do they learn such things?

I had a cat like that used to crack me up. My daughter's got the best story. One of her cats has figured out how to press the spigot on the water cooler and fill the little well below. The other cats get her to do it for them too. Cats are just so darn amazing.

I love this. I love it so much! Gyppy is into the sink water, but not so good with the drips! I'd teach him how to turn it on, but he'd leave the water running! How Bella reminds me of Mr. Stimpy. Sigh.

Love all your posts. I'm catching up so will comment for all on here, but gorgeous flowers and I adored the bird story. You're wonderful. That little bird is lucky you saw him before Ms. Bella or anyone else did!

These photos brought a smile to my face! What a cut patootie Miss Bella is!
Your lilacs and lilly of the valley are so pretty Rosa. My lilacs just started to open yesterday, and the lillies are up, but not blooming. The sun is shinning though! A perfect May Day. I hope yours is a happy one!

great story telling here rosa. i love any kind of anthropomorphizing of our feathered, furred or four legged friends. the photos tell the tale perfectly :) she looks completely serene and relaxed just as she says.

Do you think Bela's a secret muslim, who can only wash from running water?

Amazing that she likes it - what fab shots! I don't think my hygienist would approve of her brushing technique though!
