Hey niteowl07, I've got a feral outside who comes the minute I turn on the hose. Strange. Cats usually hate water. This one has no fear, and actually sits right where I'm spraying. When she was a wee kitten, I found her standing (all four feet) in the water dish and seemed quite happy.
Love happy animals. OH tip for animal lovers and water dishes. Put ice cubes in the dish and it will cool the water AND the critters love to play with the cubes.
WARNING! This person is extremely blonde...please type SLOWLY.
