Default when your cats finish drinking...

do they end up with a drop of water hanging off their chin? Both of mine do. It doesn't matter whether they've been drinking out of their water bowl or the 15x9 glass baking dish that I fill with water for them. My catsitter once commented that it was really cute, like she'd never seen it before. So it makes me think that either my cats just drink in some weird way or other cats groom themselves right away after drinking.

My cats don't. Ay least not that I've noticed, but I haven't really paid attention. I will now though!

I have had kits that do that and kits that don't.

Personally, I think they are just saving a bit for later

When my cats finish drinking, they toss their glasses into the fireplace.

I've got to stop leaving the t.v. on while I'm at work. Stupid old movies.

No, no dribbles here. My Sam (a silver Persian), used to wash was his feet in the water bowl, though!! He had long hair and would often step in his wet urine clump after peeing, so he would walk over to the water bowl and tip his feet in it - of course! What dignified man wouldn't??. As much as I loved him, it drove me NUTS to see those wet clay paw prints all over the floors! He's gone now and remembering this puts a smile on my face. Oh what I would give just to see those paw prints again!! (sniff!) =...)

I can always tell when Maxx has been drinking because his nose is soaked and his left front paw is wet. He likes to paddle in his water bowl with his paw while drinking. It makes me giggle everytime I see him do it.

My Gypsie always gets a few drops on top of her nose after drinking. Oliver keeps pretty dry though.

My cats allways shake themselves dry after drinking. So yes, there is a drop.

When my kitten is super happy and content he drools. He also gets droplets on his chin from drinking.

Sometimes if he hops in my lap purring I get water flung onto me, I don't know which it is :-/
