T.G.I.F. Thirsty Girl


Special Needs Kitten Needs a Special Home – Greenville, SC

Ditched by a Rescue, Miss Kitty and her Baby Need a Foster or Forever Home Immediately –Greenville, SC

Once again my friend Friday was slow in getting here, but at least it finally did show up. We’re not even into winter yet and already us furries in the South are getting tired of the cold stuff. It just gets dark way too early to suit me. It just seems like all we do is eat, drink and sleep. Hmmmmm, I guess it’s not too bad after all. Speaking of drinking, that leads me to the T.G.I.F. for today…Thirsty Girl is Fearful.

Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!

We all love our fresh water, and Sister Gracie is no exception. Sister Gracie loves to drink out of the big bowl that I call “The Pond”. It actually is the water bowl that belonged to two big doggies that used to live here. I know that because on the back side it has the letters DOG on it. Me, I love our ceramic fountain, and so does Sister Sascha. But Sister Gracie is afraid of the fountain. You should see her trying to sneak up on it and then, just when she gets close, she turns around and high tails it away. I keep telling her it’s the best drink in the house, but she is scared of it for some reason. The other day she worked her way up to it and I actually thought she was going to have her first fountain drink, but nope, she chickened out at the last second. Even Sisters Zoe and Dolly will drink out of it occasionally, but they actually seem to prefer “The Pond” as well. What about you, what kind of drinking stations do you have at your house?

Hey, before I go, you know what we’re doing this weekend? We’re putting up our Christmas Tree, or so I hear. That is super exciting and the Christmas Tree is one of my favorite things! I hope you all have terrific weekend!!! Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it! More Forever Homes More Often!!!

We just have water bowls all over the place. That is interesting that you are afraid of the water fountain. Does it say bad things to you Gracie??
Wow that is exciting to put up the tree. Hope there are tons of little goodies you can knock off of it. Take care.

Today is the first AM that I am able to visit, and I am so happy that Gracie was here to welcome me back to the blogging world…. Give that girl a kiss from me, and one to everyone else as well….

I am sorry that Gracie is scared of the fountain. If Alex had more time with her he would have helped. There was nothing he liked more than fresh water. I have to email you something…

Eat, drink, and sleep always sound good 🙂
Niko prefers to drink from water bowl rather than fountain, too. Goro loves fountain…but more for playing rather than drinking!

We have a water bowl next to our food bowl but we prefer water from the bathroom sink. Poor Sister Gracie! Hopefully one day she will overcome her fear of the fountain and learn to love to drink from it.

We’ve got a fountain that we have learned to like, but we also have a couple of regular bowls of water as well. We’ll drink out of all of them. And the mom adds water to our stinky goodness to make sure we get enough H2O.

You’re putting up your tree already?? Wow, we’ll be lucky to get ours up before Christmas…but that’s because Ernie likes to climb it.

We have several water bowls around the house to drink from. However, Fred likes to drink water from the sink. He would drink from the toilet if mom would let him – ewwww.

Hmmm…Christmas tree…we haven’t had one of those for a few years…maybe that will change this year!

we plan to sleep through the cold weather as well!!

Mom has thought about one of those ceramic fountains but hasn’t found one she likes that fits the budget. We use 2 big ceramic dishes here. They have to be heavy enough to stop certain cats from dragging the bowls around the house and getting water everywhere. 🙂

No fountain for us, because of Princeton and his wild “bathing” habits. No tree for us either. You got it, because of Princeton! Do we see a pattern here? MOL! Hope you kittehz have a great Friday. XOXO

We have a lot of water bowls around, but the favorites are not what was made for us kitties, but what our human uses. We have the coolest soup bowls, minus the soup!

Putting up the Christmas tree sounds like a good idea to us!

After Cosmo’s 2nd blockage, Mommy bought us a fountain. Which the both of us (Cosmo and Ling) ignored. We thought it was really scary the way it kept bubbling.
Mommy says we might put up the Christmas tree this year but Daddy’s nervous just thinking what Tutu would do….

We have water casseroles here, because at least one or two cats like to drag the bowls around, which makes a Mess. The casseroles are harder to drag. We tried one of those water cooler looking things with a bowl underneath, but one of our cats loved to play in it so much that I’d come home and find the cooler empty and a huge puddle – I caught her once with her paw up into the bottle up to the elbow! So we have to reduce the possible ways to play with the water, and casseroles sitting inside other… Read more »

I have a pretty ceramic fountain that my human got me last year… that she hasn’t set up yet! She is scared the dog will drink it dry and ruin the motor (she has done it with nearly every one of our prior fountains). So she has been trying to think up a place that I can get to easily but the dog can’t. So far, no luck!

Such sweet kitties. I pray that they all find forever homes. God Bless you again for all you do in trying to find them homes. I also want to thank you so much for stopping by when I post so rarely now to make a comment. I would like to get back into it since I still have Cleopatra but it seems like other things just seem to get in the way. It’s people like you that really make blogging so great. Thank you again. Cleo here: I have a pond too, it’s in the kitchen but I mostly drink… Read more »

Brian, our mom got a fountain for us but the noise of it scared us! it’s been off ever since 😀 We use ponds too, but then our mom also adds a lot of water to our stinky goodness so we don’t drink a whole lot besides. We bet Gracie will muster the courage yet 🙂 How fun that you are getting your Christmouse tree this weekend! our mom can’t wait to decorate this year…but she’s trying to wait until after Thanksgiving. Have a great weekend!

Our cats drink out of just about anything they can. They stop only at the pig’s water, which is usually the freshest because he drinks so much! Strange…

Good luck with the tree!

We love your Friday posts because we can’t wait to see what TGIF stands for each week. We are always impressed with your creativity. We like your pond. We have a ceramic fountain that we all love, but we also have a big bowl that we like to play in more than drink from.

Hey Brian, Jet here.

Funny you should mention drinking options for your sisters… we’re posting about that tomorrow! Came about naturally after our constitutional this evening…

Have fun with the tree… bet there’s some mischief potential!

I’ve been campaigning lately for a fountain. Until then I’m just going to keep making Glogirly turn on the faucet for me in the bathtub.

You need to do like Pop’s friend does. He has a Halloween tree which becomes a Thanksgiving tree and finally a Christmas tree. Then you can have it up 3 months. I don’t drink water. We have a fountain and once I tried to drink out of it but I try to bite the water so I don’t get any. When I go in the bathroom, I try to bite the running water also.

See, now that’s what my Human is afraid of! She keeps thinking of buying me one of those nice fountains, but they’re kind of spendy and I’m such a coward she thinks I’ll freak out from the noise or the motion and not go near it. So far, I am stuck with just my regular water bowls. Sigh. I think a fountain MIGHT be fun, but I also think it might scare me.
