How to water a cat

This automatic cat waterer at Hacked Gadgets reminded me of Harold, a cat who used to live with me many years ago.


I never made one of these for Harold, but he didn't need one. The tap in our bathtub had a very slow leak and Harold used to to get water from it by hopping into the tub and holding his paw against the tap. This caused any water that was about to drip to run down his foreleg and he'd lap it up when it got to his elbow. It was the cleverest thing I've ever seen a cat do.

I like how you phrased that: “a cat who used to live with me.” You never really own a cat do you?

Roger that, Butch. And it was especially true for Harold, who was one the most self-possessed animals I've known.
