paws in water bowl
I did a search on this topic and found that there's a few cats who dip their paws into their water/food and drink/eat off their paws. Antigone does something similar to that.. she dips her paw in the water and then starts drinking from the bowl. We took care of a friend's kitten once and she did the same thing. Just a dip and then drink.
The reason why I bring this up is because as some of you might know, Antigone has a huge splint on one front limb, and just now I watched her as she dipped the huge splint into the water bowl, take it out, and started drinking normally from the bowl. Before when she didnt have the splint she would do that, and I thought she was testing the temperature or something... but now I see her do it with her splint and it makes no sense!! (but then again, she's starting to think that huge peg leg is her own since she licks and cleans it regularly now).
So.. I wonder why some cats dip their paws in the water... anyone know?
