Weird Behavior # 4: The Water-Dipper
Most people believe cats absolutely hate water, but that simply isn’t so. Some cats like to play in water (as long as it isn’t aimed at them) and will do so in their water bowls. They like the sound the water makes when being splashed and also to peer at their own reflections. Another reason you may have a water-dipper on your hands is some felines prefer fresh or moving water to drink, rather than water that has sat out for hours. If this is the reason, you can change the water more frequently during the day or invest in an aerated bowl that continues to circulate the water, keeping it fresh.
