Just a reminder, peeps... this is it, right here, the feline washcloth, the kitty loofah, the interspecies sandpaper scrub-brush that we've been taking about with this question.


Click on the photo for the C.O.X.C.U. just to make things abundantly clear.
Any questions?

Nice droplet, Lord Kalvan!  (Everybody say Hi to Princess Hank!)

My brother's cat likes to drink water from the kitchen faucet too.....then she throws up....everytime.

Hi Princess Hank! Kitty drinking suspended droplet...super cute...kitty licking goop out of doggy's ears...gross!...close-up of kitty schnozz...cude!

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 09:42 AM

Who am I to say, but maybe Princess Hank is short for Princess Hanky? Every princess needs a hanky to wipe water droplets off her princess chin.
(and that's no hanky-panky)

Droplets on the muzzlepuff! Droplets on the muzzlepuff!

Hi, Princess Hank! You're awfully cute. My Sanibel does the same thing - running water fresh out of the tap must just taste better - perhaps it makes them think of fish in a stream? Either that or it's just another way they can drive us crazy.

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 09:49 AM

Awww, what a cute Princess! my Princess's name is Norm, so I do understand that sometime pretty girls can have unfortunate names.

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 09:49 AM

La Principesa has a very red tongue from lots of slurpage. Droplets on whiskers! And did you see that gigunda droplet suspended under the faucet? She's magic, too.

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 09:51 AM

What a purdy kitteh!! I wonder if Princess Hank *asks* for her water drops. My sweet ol' tabby cat Terra used to do that. She'd jump up on the counter by the sink and say, "prrrrt?"

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 10:00 AM

awesome shot! I love the red polka dot on her nose! Pretteh kitteh!

I have a couple kittehs that will sit and wait at the bathroom sink for me to turn the water on at drip speed. (Of course with ten cats in the house, I could probably say I have a cat that does that about most anything!)

Update on the stray I took in a week ago: she passed her physical at the vet, she's eating well, still growly, but likes petting most of the time. I currently have a found ad running for her. She's a very pretty tortie, front declawed. Anyone in MI looking to adopt???

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 10:01 AM

This is how cats survive in the wild.
They find natural springs like this one, and tear open the bags of dry food all on their own.
So don't go thinking they need you.

In fact, if they weren't hanging around, we'd all be knee-deep in yucky wet cat food.
And how would we like that?

Or so my cats say.

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 10:02 AM

mariser & Lord K - congrats on the posting! Princess Hank looks like the kitty that I had when I was wittle (her name was Tiger). She didn't do cool stuff like this though.

Will Steven E be featured too?

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 10:03 AM

LOL, Lauowolf, this is what my cats claim, too. That they're perfectly capably of living on the squirrels they would catch in the wild.

Oh, and kind of sad but heartwarming, check out BBC's photos of a horse rescue. Just, uh, skip pic#3, which is not heartwarming.

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 10:05 AM

& Nnniiiiccccee water droplet catch!
By photographer and kitteh!!

mariser, Beautiful. Congratulations.

(Low sweeping bow)
I dust the floor before you with my feathered hat,
For sending us this photo of your Princess Hank, the cat.

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 10:25 AM

Wow Redz, great story. I didn't skip #3, sad, but the other pics. very heartwarming. I liked the one of the 4 ladies leading the herd off the island (#6).

And, back to regularly scheduled programming, Princess Hank is adorable. (I one had a female cat named Harold. So I understand the name "Hank". Sometimes it just seems to fit.)

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 10:25 AM

If Princess Hank is here, surely Steven Elizabeth is not far behind?

I need to get a cat so that I can name her Princess Bob or something. :)

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 10:33 AM

I often wake at 2AM to the scratchy sound of kitten licking dry faucet.

I bought my princess a fountain water bowl several years ago - so I could get some sleep - and she just refuses to drink out of it.

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 10:39 AM

my cat does that too!! we don't want him to 'cause it just wastes a lot of water... haha

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 10:41 AM

Glad everybody liked the shot. It took a few tries. Normally she will drink from the other direction and thus rendering the view useless. When I get home, I will post the rest of the shots either on my vox or flickr accounts.

Max (aka Lord Kalvan)
 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 10:48 AM

Mary: my fave part, too: 4 women on horseback leading the herd to safety.

I got so tired of the faucet licking antics that I got one of those fountains, which the cats seem to like.

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 10:54 AM


Sounds like my cat. I bought Mr. Princess a cat fountain but he prefers the tap. Second best is a drinking glass (I suppose so he doesn't have to deign to bend over).
Here's pics of my kitty with his drinking glass.

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 10:56 AM

Sqeeeeeeeeee! our little princess is on CO. won't she be surprised.
[Steven E. mumbles, grumbles] I've sent several pictures of Steven E. and he has never been featured. won't he be jealous? I thinks he will.
btw, I have never had a submission to CO win the "pick me! lottery" but I'm still happy for the SO aka "Lord Kalvan" and P. Hank.

Laowolf - and here I thought my cats could READ the label on the cat food bag. There goes my theory that they have super-feline abilities.

And the photo of Hank is awesome. I definitely need to ask Santa for a decent camera this year.

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 11:09 AM

HAH! T., has been rendered speechless by the deployment of the super-secret weapon: sweepy-marmie-kitteh-with-paws-up-and-pantaloons

Max and/or Mariser -- I was curious about one thing, with those Vox pix: They're obviously taken with a nice camera, judging from the superfine resolution (and therefore superlarge image size)... so, why are they so dark? Was your shutter speed set a bit fast, maybe?

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 11:11 AM

Wups, sorry... [melts back into speechlessness]

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 11:12 AM

hey T., I'll let mon schmoop answer your technical question. I can vouch for the finene$$ of the camera, though. it is a Pentax digital SLR (his birfday present)

T, a nice whirfle-rub of the tummy to Mr. Bounce in reply.

And Redz, thanx for sharing the horsie pictures. As a certified horse geek, my heart warms at their rescue but feels a bit sorry for them too...

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 11:21 AM

Theo -- love Mr. Bounce. maybe my next kitty will be a marmie.

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 11:30 AM

Don't click on the links to Fatal Fluffy!!! Slepping chub-cat photos on Friday afternoon?! Peeps, I'm barely awake as it is and I still gotta do payroll. Can you believe they trust me with payroll?

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 11:45 AM


For Princess Hank, I think I had it set to spot metering and it read off her white. Some of the shots came out OK, some did not. I should have checked the metering. I had the camera set to its auto setting. Hence the flash was keyed to the metering. Shutter speed was recorded as 1/60 sec. Didn't want to set a long manual shutter speed as the water would be blurred.

For Steven Elizabeth on the bed, it was with the lights totally off using the flash. Lucky to get anything.

In general, I feel the Pentax *istDS pics are slightly dark. About 1/2 to 1 stop maybe. Especially the indoor shots. Nice thing is the pics have a lot of latitude so you can easily adjust.

Max (aka Lord Kalvan)
 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 11:51 AM

Theo, Mr. Bounce is very fetching. He must have been counting nose hairs.

RedZ, that was a great story about the horses. I hope the authorities slapped their "caretaker" with heavy fines AND costs of rescue. And the ire of a nation.

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 12:11 PM

Fatal Fluffy is teh fatale! Very byootiful kitteh.

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 12:14 PM

"Nice thing is the pics have a lot of latitude so you can easily adjust."
Yep, just as you say.

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 12:15 PM

Oh, I'm SURE Steven Elizabeth will be quite jealous.

But I lof this pic! Nice going Lord K.

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 12:59 PM

My Schmoo must have her morning drinkawattah from the faucet, too! All this started up again with the change of the seasons for some reason. She is very adamant that she MUST get in the bathroom and get to the faucet. Of course, I dare not comply.

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 01:21 PM

Oh, and this is an AWESOME stop action pic! Even has the little globules of water on kitteh's whisker pads!

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 01:23 PM

Yay, Lord Kalvan and Princess Hank and mariser! and a can of concialatory tuna for Steven E.!
Nice, shot! I loved this one on your vox!

Purrdos to all the humans whose furkids allowed thier lovely photos to be posted today! Kneedless to say, they are all VERY purrdy!

 |  Nov 03, 2006 at 02:19 PM

it's an amazing picture, mariser and lord kalvan!! Princess H is beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, and the photography is outstanding. Wow.

Hugs to Steven Elizabeth, who's beautiful too. :)

Why don't my kit kats drink from taps? why why why???? I try to convince them they would look fetching catching driplets from the tap but they won't hear any of it. They prefer drinking their H-dos-O from a very tall glass so they don't have to bend over.
