This is my pretty little cat, Mitzi.
She loves to drink from water in the garden. She might jump up on to the bird bath, or drink from a bucket that has filled with rainwater. Recently I made a garden pond out of a big black plastic tub, and put lots of plants in it. She stretches to her full, but very petite, length to drink from it.
One of the plants I put in sends little detached leaves up to the surface of the tub, and there are now so many of these that today, when she tried to drink out of it, Mitzi couldn't see the water for the leaves. So she stuck in her paw and swished it about to move them aside.
I couldn't take a picture as any movement from me would have made her do a flit unquenched, but I was really impressed by her intelligence and ability to work out a solution to her problem.
Meanwhile, Henry is at least no worse. He is certainly up to spilling his seed pot everywhere when he has done with it, and he seems to be enjoying his honey water. I am NOT looking forward to finding the alternative surgery my vet uses tomorrow morning, and I just hope the motorists going to Gatwick Airport manage not to cause any major tailbacks on the motorway by their stupid driving and needless accidents.
Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.
