Wednesday Word of the Day—Wet

You better not start until I get outta the tub, Woman!

The original title of this post was Water Sports. Hey you—Cody—get your mind outta the gutter! I know TW used to work for a certain men's magazine in another life but this is a family blog.

As you kittehs know, I don't drink water. Blech! I do, however, like to play with water. Here's a game TW and I have been playing since I first came into the condo.

Sorry for the dark, grainy photo
After TW brushes her teeth, she spits out the water. Yeah, it's gross but—you're not gonna believe this—I useta sit on the edge of the sink and try to catch the water in my mouth as she spit it out. She didn't want me swallowing any minty stuff so we agreed to amend the rules. Now she takes a clean cup of water and flips it slowly into the tub, where I'm perched on the rim.

I have two ways of catching it. Either I try to hit the water into my mouth with my paws or I attempt to bite the water. Sometimes I get some and sometimes I don't. TW can't understand how I'll do this but won't drink out of the fountain.

Of course, other times, I'll just hit the water with my paws. TW is scared enough of me that she won't try anything funny like throwing the glass of water on top of me.

Right now, there's no evidence video available of these water sports. TW is hoping she can coerce Pop into filming us. For now, these dark, grainy photos from years ago will have to do. I mean, one photo is from Pop's tub, for gosh sakes.

Woman, get in here! I'm ready to play!
The other night, I leaned over and managed to catch a snoot full of water. TW thought it was the funniest thing since she engineered the birch beer caper. Oh wait, she didn't find that funny—I did. You're laughing now Woman, but you won't be later after my teeth are sunk in you.

MOL - that is a kinda weird game CK. I'd love to see a video of that!

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

CK, you won't find ME anywhere near water! Yes, I will drink it, but I refuse to touch it, or risk getting wet. That is a very curious habit of yours.

Molly The Wally said...

LOL you are a funny one Keisha. Yes please we'd love a video. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Best wishes Molly

The only time any of us play with water is when Newton is peeing in the sink and someone turns on the tap to make him stop. We think water is kind of scary, so you must be a brave cat, CK!

Tamago said...

LOL. Catching spit water must be fun! But TW is great to use clean cup of water. It must tastes better when you actually catch it :-)

Patty Woodland said...

Hope you're feeling better CK. Our Odin loves sitting on the edge of the tub while I'm bathing. He splashes me and drinks the water! What a weirdo.

Kruse Kats said...

We drink the water in the shower when they are done. Maggie licks mom toothbrush. Ken sleeps in the sink. but, biting water? are you nuts?

Brian said...

Hey, at least you are getting your hydration some how CK! MOL!

The Musings Of A Crazy Cat Lady said...

That's so funny. You must be feeling better. Ateret's late friend, Tereza liked to sit in the bathtub when I had a mist attachment that served as the humidifier. She'd ask to be petted and be amused when I was shocked to find her soaking wet.

Nicola Carpenter said...

Lola likes to play water sports too. It can get a bit dicey when the baby is in the bath though.

Sounds like you're feeling great and back to your self CK...excellent...Bet your water game is fun to watch...Get TW in gear and get that video made...You're a star and need to share these moments with your fans

Selina said...

Men's mag, eh? Humm .... bet that makes for interesting reading CK! Bribe material for you? *G*

And the image of you trying to get the toothpaste "spit" is too funny! You had MomKatt grinning from ear to ear!

Purrz!
Selina

PS - I don't like water at all. Peppers & Sasha drink out of the faucets - me & 'Ticia don't. But I DO like to just sit in the bathtub.

you keep on playing with that water CK, and I will just watch. I like mine coming outta my fountain just fine, thank you very much!

CATachresis said...

Oh I am so boring next to you, CK. Well let's face it everyone is! I just drink the standard stuff from the bowl. I might have to revise!! Hmmm!

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

you meant ME "Cody?" You tell me to get my mind out of the gutter and you SPIT WATER IN THE FACE OF YOUR CAT???? OMC!!!!!!!
xoxoxo

Kitties Blue said...

OMC, we just read the Birch Beer Caper. MOL and LOL. Sorry TW. Our mom's had days like that as well. CK, you are definitely an unusual cat. Some of us also like to play with water, but we also all drink it. What do you drink? Birch Beer perhaps! Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

The Island Cats said...

CK, catching spit water? Really? That's a game we've never played...and not sure we want to. ;)

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

The Woman has a friend--not naming no names--who used to have a nice kitty named Iggy. Iggy would sit on the sink next to the toilet, and, well, you know, try to stick his paw "into the stream" as it arced its way to the bowl. Apparently it was quite the game.

I'm glad you don't do THAT, CK. I mean, I'd love you even if you DID, but . . .ick.

George The Duck and the HotMBC Kittehs said...

You're strange, CK. I like that about you. I want to see a video of that though.
purrrs,
da Mini

Athena said...

Strange game indeed. But I like strange though :)

Clooney said...

Oh CK, you are such a unique character for sure! Continued purrs to your Peeps, thank Cod they had you as a nurse taking care of them.

That's an unusual game for a kitty! I love playing in water - preferably lots of it.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

I complain, therefore I am.

If I come over later, can we hang out in the tub a little?
