Weird Wednesday

Hey kids check out this video.  Jimmy has a very odd way of drinking water, sometimes he laps normally but sometimes he does this instead...



Isn't that wild how he dips his paw in then licks the water off his pads?  Are there any other kitties out there who like to drink this way?!?!

I love the way Ben was weirded out by Jimmy! I don't do that with water, but I do eat my food like that sometimes if I don't like it much. My human calls it playing with my food.

Angie said...

Rosie and Honey Pot also drink like that ...Honey all the time ..and then there is Rusty who likes to wet his paw under the tap. He some times just puts his head under but has got so drenched at times that he prefers the paw method .xx

LoL... your Jimmy has got very good manners! Noah only uses his paws for getting some treats. I ask him "Give paw" and he put his paw at my hand to get his treat. It's funny but I didn't manage to get this filmed.
Have a lovely day
Alex

We have never seen kitties that drink like that, but we think that means he is exceptionally smart. Creativity in cats!

We don't put our paws in our water cos we know where they were earlier!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Cory said...

Awwwww....

My mom says that yes, one of our angel kitties used to do that and now she can't remember who. Sigh. She's a bit defective that way.

Katie Isabella said...

I agree Jimmy, it must taste better that way and I need to try the same. xoxox Mom and I loved your video and the captions. xox

Rene said...

Benny does that once in a while, but not regularly. :-)

Fuzzy Tales said...

We do NOT get our paws wet. LOL. Actually, the mom hardly ever sees us drink water, in spite of all the bowls around the house.

Random Felines said...

Yep - Tim does that. Not only does he drip on the floor, but mom is certain that he could dehydrate before getting a decent drink. MOL

Samantha, Clementine and Maverick said...

Oh my gosh!! How cute that is!! Clemmie licks the water from her paws but only when the bathtub is full of water!! That was really cool Jimmy!
Samantha

Hi Ben! I'll be teleporting over right away!!
Hugs & Kisses,
Clemmie

Marg said...

Our cat Black does that sometimes. Maybe it tastes better off the paw. Who knows. As long as he is getting some water. Take care.

LP said...

Tulip does this too and once in a while so does Leo! I guess they are all multi-taskers...they clean their toes and have a drink at the same time!! Heehee.

the critters in the cottage xo

Thank you for the kind and thoughtful words on the passing of my beloved Alex. I appreciate you. Sister Gracie from Brian's Home

meowmeowmans said...

Haha. That is really cute! We laughed at the part when Ben was weirded out by Jimmy. Moosey does this every now and then. A few of the cats at the shelter, too. :)

CCL Wendy said...

Yup! There's one in efurry crowd! Dante does this, too. He usually scratches the side of the bowl and taps the top of the water, first, as well. But then Dante will also pick up his kibble with his paw, exactly the same way.

Apparently, there is some genetic predisposition to this from their wild ancestors -- dipping paws in water, that is.

Dexter likes to make waves sometimes!

The Island Cats said...

Haha! Maybe Jimmy is washing while he's drinking!

Meg & Quill said...

Our persians did that when I grew up.

Tamago said...

Oh my, Jimmy, you are so special!
My Goro sometimes puts his paw in water and licks, but only once or twice at a time. Jimmy just keeps drinking! I bet it tastes better that way :-)

Eric and Flynn said...

Eric: I put my paw under the bath tap which mum leaves trickling for us. I let the water run up my paw and drink it from there.
Flynn: I eat my food with my paw when it is something I don't like.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

I had an adorable black kitty who used to do that! mostly with my ice water.. He had the habit of shaking his paw after each lick though, so I always knew when he had been in it, there were splatters EVERYwhere!

Oui Oui said...

The mom had a little tortie, Minnie Pumpkin, who did that sometimes. She would put all kinds of things in the water bowl - hair clips, rubber bands, bread ties, whatever she could find. Maybe it was safer drinking that way!

The Adventures of Scarlett and Melly said...

That is adorable! I love the way Ben peers down at Jimmy, and your subtitles are excellent.

My parents' late cat Star used to drink like that, although that was only when he couldn't reach the water with his mouth (drinking from a watering can was his favorite, oddly). I've also caught Melly doing it occasionally with her water dish in the kitchen.

Clarissa said...

Sometimes I stand with my front paws in the large water dish. Usually I do that when I can't tell exactly how much water is in it!

Purrs,
Clarissa
