Option One: The bathroom sink (or my Sippy Sink). This is a delight. I like everything about it. I can hear it turn on from almost any corner of the house. I love to watch it at any speed, from a gush to a drip. I prefer to drink from a light stream as it gathers in the bowl. During actual drinking I get irritated if it's only a drip, and I voice my disapproval until it is adjusted.
Option Two: The water glass on the bathroom counter. Mom has put this one out as a decoy. She pretends to take a sip and leave it on the counter (casual-like) so I will not bug her to turn on the faucet. This is a good back up, but I know it's not really her water, I'm not a kitten!
Option Three: My water bowl below the tub. Always full and fresh, but it's an absolute last resort.
Option Four: My other water bowl in the kitchen. Never! It's too obvious.
Option Five: The other water cup Mom leaves out as a decoy. Yes, but only when she drops ice cubes in it.
Option Six: The icy water bucket Mom uses when Mom has a hive on her foot... Yum. She says it's gross, but really it's her foot, she always washes her foot before (although I don't require that), and third how would she know, it's not like she is taking a sip with me.
Option Seven: Mom's real water cup... the ultimate prize. Nothing is tastier.
How do you take your water friends?
