Drinking Establishment Closes

I'm doomed.  My life here in this miserable abode is miserable.

Gee, Oreo, you have a way with words.

Um, yes, I do.  Stop interrupting.  Anyway, I was trying to tell these folks how awful it is here.  My ocean, my ocean of life is gone, closed, FINISHED.  I shall die soon.

What ARE you talking about, Silly One?

The oval thing in the little room, the thing that causes the female to scream "YEE-IKES!  Cold Potty!" when she sits upon it, it was my liquid sustenance and I can longer mount it to drink.

Um, first of all, I don't think Reffie will like you sharing her toilet habits and you have a water bowl, Goofball.  The humans closed the lid because they want you to drink from your water bowl.

You must mean that tiny thing that barely holds anything.  It's filled with my slobber.  Those oval things have oceans of yummy, satisfying liquid that is refreshed when the humans play with a knob-thingy.

Well, yeah, but they...... um.  Oh never mind.  This is impossible.  It's like explaining something to a cat.

Well, it is fresh water.

My cat never indulges because she doesn't have the time, too busy keeping tabs on the dogs.

I've always kept the lid closed to avoid this exact scenario. Of course, then Darth Vader realised he will only drink water that's sloshing about, so he'll hit the bowl with his paw, spilling out half of the water, and only then drink from whatever remains in the bowl. So now the cats have their water bowl in the bathroom after all, to spare our kitchen floor from water damage. Sigh.

@Lauren - I think I should get a dog for the cat.

@Ziva - Yep. He has played the "attack the water bowl game". Sigh. Silly beasts!

Tell Oreo that the water that comes out of the faucet is so much better. A friend used to leave her water running just a tad so the damn cat could drink or play whenever he felt like it. I think someone should invent a bubbling water dish for cats.

Mike said...

I bet the toilet water is fresher most times. lol

ReformingGeek said...

@Cheryl - Ooh, I like the bubbling water dish idea!

@Mike = Well, um, I hope not!

Cats are so very picky. But I guess they wouldn't be themselves if they weren't...sigh.

Heh heh. We have a dog who likes to lap the bowl.


Of course, she runs right up to us and tries to lick US with her not so fresh breath.

Double ick.
