OMG, he looks just like my Humphrey II...sooooo CUTE! I have a female cat who likes to drink from the faucet, but she'd never want water all over her whole head like that, and with such force! LOL! More than a trickle and she's not going there...this is too funny, thanks for sharing!!!

LOL....Our Harley does this, although not to this extent! We have Drinkwells and could never figure out why his head was always wet. Then I saw him do something similar to this! He has no qualms about getting wet, whats-so- ever!

A cat drinking water like that isnt a good sign. he/she may have a health issue like kidney issues. Healthy cats rarely drink, put water down of course but cats rarely drink fluids unless its milk or chicken broth.

Nice to see this posted again. But, I think the title needs a little editing.

Once again, your statements are false.....lets see a reputable link where it says cats don't drink water....
ALL of my cats have always drank water...either wet foods or dry or a combo of both....they drank water! Try making it enticing...such as the Drinkwell fountains. And none of them have EVER had kidney problems.
Yes, a cat with kidney problems may drink more than usual....but HEALTHY cats drink water.

That's hillarious! I'd be worried about ear infections because my pets always seem to get ear infections after they get water in their ears.

That's the most precious thing I've ever seen.

Our previous (RIP) cat used to dip his paw into the water dish and lick the water off his paws. He'd never just lap up the water like a normal (whatever that is) cat.

Some cats like to take baths and showers, too.

I think it's a great sign. A sign that you've got a cat that knows how to get what he/she wants and have fun at the same time. And that cat was having fun!

Again, weird assumptions based on misinformation.

Every cat I have ever known drinks water. Some more than others, but all of them do.
