Default Sylvester the water cat

A few weeks ago a 'friend' dumped a cat on us. It was either take him or let him be tossed onto the street. We've been trying to rehome him (honestly) but of course we are also a bit smitten. This cat has a particularly large amount of character and as we speak he has just finished splashing his freshly poured bowl of water all over and now that the level is low he tipped it right over and has moved on to play in Nanook's bowl. What kind of cat does that? lol A bored one we think. He still needs to get neutered before he can go out and play with the other cats.

Our cat does the same thing, but he gets the water sloshing every time he goes to his bowl. I was beginning to wonder if he had a sight problem and could only judge where the water was by the motion, but his eye sight seems fine everywhere else.

He also just seems to be fascinated with liquid being spilled. We can't leave a cup on any surface unattended for long. He will and routinely does tip over every cup or glass that he sees that has any liquid in it. He recently has realized that I put a cup of milk on the kitchen counter in the morning for my son. It took 2 mornings of having the milk poured out to figure out that he had figured out my routine, and no more leaving the glass of milk on the counter.

He also turned over a glass of water that my son or husband had at the desk. They both sat there and let it happen. They said the cat 'pretended' to be stretching and at the last minute slapped the glass and turned it over. They were caught off-guard! Outsmarted by a cat!

My Tiny does that all the time. I've tried to get heavier bowls that he can't tip over, but a 22 lb. cat can do what he wants!

Oh Saje, do you have a pic of Sylvester. I'd love to see this guy.

22 lbs! You'd have to glue it down. lol

I'll try and get a pic of him. I want to get him when he's sleeping on Steve. It's so funny. He sprawls out like a baby with legs all over the place.

$100.00 says you keep him. $200.00 say he's doing all the cute stuff to seal the deal!

hee hee hee Yeah, I know. He's pretty much ours. Today I gave him the crust from my toast and he ran around with it in his mouth and then ate the whole thing like we never feed him. Weird-o!
