my cat only drinks tap water. rarely drinks from her bol. she sits by my side waiting and when I don't notice she gently touches my arm with her paw. she was doing that while I was reading no distractions and I wasn't paying attention. then I had a click and I understood she was asking me for water and interrupted my reading to take care of her. Life can be so ironical! (I was reading about the non-negotiables little things in life. the things that matter so much that everything else must fall to the wayside). it's so peaceful to hear her drinking!
