Saturday Photo Hunt #13: WATER!



This week's theme is "WATER".


The Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt theme for this week is WATER. Surely there will be photos of rivers, lakes, the ocean, snow ... But I want to show something a little different.

I dug through Mom's archive of photos and found one of Toby snoopervising the bathtub "WATER"! Toby's been gone for more than ten years now. He passed over the Rainbow Bridge on November 22, 1996. He was one of the only Feline Americans who liked to play in water. He'd often sit on the rim of the tub taking pot shots at the bubbles. He fell in a number of times, but that didn't dampen his fascination with water and baths.

This is a photograph of Toby when he was about two years old back when they lived in the old house. Mom had taken a bath and had pulled the plug to drain the water without "consulting" Toby first. As you can see, he is plainly asking "Where's the water goin', Mom? I'm not finished playing with it!"

I am not a fan of water unless it's in a cup accompanied by ice cubes or if it's in my bowl ... As far as I'm concerned, water is for DRINKIN'!

Oh, Toby is adorable. The cat that came before liked to play in water too.

Hehe, I also posted a photo of a kitty who came before me who is now gone. He also really loved his water!

I've never had a cat that liked water. We had one who loved to curl up in the bathroom sink to sleep (in the summer when it was hot!); we also had one who used the toilet to urinate! Never could get her to figure out how to flush, though...

Happy week-end.

Toby was a very cute kitty boy. Yes, I have also fallen in the tub a few times...

there's no telling what will fascinate us.

personally, all i want is drinking water (and mama obliges by setting out several bowls of fresh drinking water).

I love the story of Toby. I bet you miss him a lot. He was gorgeous.

What a bee-yootiful kitty Toby was. Two of my sisters love drinkin' water out of the sink, too. I like to pull out the drain stops in both the sink and the bathtub!

Monica doesn't mind getting wet, but I hate it! I like to watch Monica when she drinks out of the bathtub faucet, but I stay clear of the water.

Toby looked kind of like you, didn't he DaisyMae?

I like to watch the toilet water flush away but Willow likes to watch water in the sink and the shower. But neither of us likes the water to touch us!

Thanks for telling us about Toby, DaisyMae. Our grandpa and grandma used to have a meezer named Toby; he now lives with Mom's brother and family.

I'm with you DaisyMae; water is for drinking only. Bathsheba likes to put her paw in her water dish to make the water move, and she likes to drink out of the bathroom faucet. What's up with that? My big sister Precious used to like to dip her paws in the water dish and drink out of her big paws. No thanks!

Purrs,

Toby was a lovely cat! He was crazy to like playing in water, though. I have to have weekly baths and the water is not fun!
