King likes his water. I often catch him doing what I lovingly refer to as King's Water Dance. He is very very slow on the draw. I get worried when I see him drinking too much because excessive drinking means he might be developing kitty diabetes. I learned this the hard way when he sucked down water like a marathon runner and flooded the litterbox. Anyway, he doesn't have diabetes now, which is good, but he still dances around the water bowl at every opportunity. On a side note, I've NEVER witnessed Webster drinking from the water bowl. Odd.
Since King is so slow, I was able to document the Water Dance for you last night. We begin at the top, where he is near the bowl and thinking about drinking some water. Next, we move onto this shot of him looking at the bowl. Just looking, thinking about it, pondering its watery deliciousness.
Now we move on to the Water Crouch. Here he likes to hover slightly above the bowl to check things out. Note how he has a grizzly hump on his back. So anyway, he'll sit like this for a few minutes.
Now he is leaning in for his first lap of water. King likes to stick his entire jaw into the bowl. I can tell when he has been doing the Water Dance because his whole chin area is wet. One would think he would learn how to do this without getting water ON himself.
He really likes to lean in there.
Then he has to stop and pause for a moment. Sometimes there are no noises. In this case, he heard the Landparents walking around upstairs. Must pause. Wait. Is it safe to keep drinking?
Once the All Clear signal has hit his brain, he really likes to go for it. Ahhhh...water....
UPDATE: Met my new Landmother, though I might just call her Landsister (young). I introduced myself and was very friendly, signed a piece of paper, and got her and her boyfriend's info. WHOO HOO!! I don't have to move out!!! WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
