My cats don't drink from a water dish. They drink from a stadium cup on the coffee table because whenever Dean and I have a glass of water, the cats will try to drink from it. We discovered that if our glass of water is always only 3/4 full and the "cat cup" is always full, they will only drink from the cat cup.
For the first time in 3 years I accidently drank from the cat cup.
I feel so disgusting.
