No matter how many times I see it happen, my heart starts pounding when I catch Luna up to no good. She’s always been a bit of a rascal, but lately, she has taken to tinkering with anything that contains H2O- bathtubs, sinks… you name it! We’ve tried everything from locking her out of rooms to telling her ‘no’, but she still finds a way to get into the sink whenever I’m brushing my teeth. As soon as she spots me, she makes a beeline for it and dunks whatever toys she can find inside. I’ve tried everything from getting her more playthings to taking away favorite ones, but nothing seems to work!

She just can’t stop herself from playing with her toys in water. What should I do!?

I had the exact same problem with my cat, Princess, a few years ago! She’s a big ol’ sweetie and she loves to play… especially around water. I’d find drool-coated hair ties and rubber duckies all over the place, but she wasn’t satisfied until they were floating at the top of a sink or tub. I spent ages trying to figure out what was wrong with her before it finally clicked: some cats simply love water! It sounds weird, but those adorable furballs are instinctively drawn to places that contain H2O– including sinks full of dirty dishes. If you think about it, it makes some kind of sense. In the wild, cats know to seek out small pools of water as a necessary resource. In some places, their prey even comes from aquatic habitats!

So what should you do if your cat can’t stop playing with water-filled items? Well, first things first: try not to worry too much! While it’s a bit strange and slightly concerning, playing with sinks isn’t going to hurt them… so long as you keep an eye on the taps just in case they turn them on accidentally. Even if this does happen, your feline shouldn’t be scalded by hot water because they have fur! If anything, they might get annoyed at feeling all wet, but that’s about it.

Why does my cat put things in the water?

Kitty’s just trying to play and have fun! This is why I’m a big fan of giving them water-filled toys, especially ones that mimic prey. Soaking catnip in H2O works too: it’ll keep your feline friend entertained and busy for hours! However, you should also take this opportunity to teach them where they’re allowed to go with their toys. For example, you can place one of these water-safe plushies next to the sink when you’re brushing your teeth (or showering or doing dishes) and then remove it once you’re done. Just be sure they don’t end up getting lost in the pile of dirty towels on the floor… Trust me, this is far more trouble than it’s worth!

As long as you make sure your sink is always tidy before allowing kitty to play with their toys, there’s really nothing else you need to worry about. Playing with water-filled items can be a bit strange for some people, but it doesn’t bother me at all if it didn’t weird my fiancĂ© out, then I’m pretty sure Luna will be fine too. After taking everything into consideration, I think that having a cat who loves water is pretty awesome and they’re certainly more interesting than the ones who ignore the faucet.

Why do cats bring their toys to their food dish?

I’ll bet it’s because they love their toys as much as we love our food! In all seriousness, though, this is a tough question to answer. Back when cats were wild hunters, they needed to eat fresh meat from prey. It was easier for them to bring their dinner back home and finish it there… away from hungry scavengers who might steal a bite or two.

Ever since then, your cat’s instincts may be telling them that bringing the leftovers “home” where they’ll be safe and sound might provide some weird sense of security. This goes double if you give them toys that smell like their favorite foods! Is your cat still going on about wanting more fish? Well, now he has his fishy toy right by his cat’s water bowl of real fish… It’s almost too cute to believe!

This is also where the whole toy-in-water thing comes from. Since cats are usually interested in things that float, they see any toy near a body of water as prey that might be worth catching. They’re not wrong either: after all, some toys can even have catnip inside them to give your kitty an extra kick!  

Why does my cat put her toys in the bathtub?

It sounds weird, but some cats simply love water. Any kind of moisture might be enough for them to stay occupied for hours on end… which is more than enough time for you to finish cleaning up the bathroom or taking a shower yourself.

Why does my cat bring a dead mouse inside the house? (or any other weird objects)

When you hear about a cat “bringing home a dead mouse,” this usually means it’s already dead and slowly rotting away. If they could’ve gotten to it themselves, they would’ve collapsed its lungs and eaten the whole thing in one go!

Your feline friend is probably doing this because she can. Even though many of them will take part in the killing process, few actually like to eat dead animals… especially if their prey has been out in the open for too long. There hasn’t been enough time for bacteria to get at all the nutrients yet, after all, so why not bring it inside where there’s still some meat worth eating? Some cats might even want to save their food for later: just be sure they don’t start eating other things!

Why does my cat bring me dead animals?

The reason why your pet brings you a dead animal is simple: they see it as prey that their human owner has killed. In the wild, cats would give off a distinct call whenever they caught something to communicate with the rest of their group… but domestic kitties can’t do that in most places. So if your furry friend wants to tell the rest of his gang where he found dinner, maybe he’ll “meow” at you for a moment before leaving it by your feet. It’s almost like a thank-you gift! They know that hunting brings home lots of food for them and mommy takes care of all the dirty work, after all.

Will it be okay to bring my cat a toy mouse?

Sure! Just remember that she might not know what you’re trying to communicate with it and will probably just play with it as if it were a real mouse. She’ll bring it back to her food dish and sit on top of it like she’s about to pounce… only for the toy to come falling down after a few seconds because she can’t jump 10 feet high off the ground! But hey, at least you didn’t spend $12 on a toy mouse for your cat who doesn’t care about toys anymore!

Why is my cat obsessed with water?

It sounds weird, but some cats simply love water. Any kind of moisture might be enough for them to stay occupied for hours on end… which is more than enough time for you to finish cleaning up the bathroom or taking a shower yourself.

Why are cats always near toilets?

Ever since your cat was little, they may have learned that kitchens meant food… and water meant water! Even if they’ve never had it themselves, one of their siblings probably spilled the beans about where the last meal came from. Since then, your cat’s instincts may be telling them that “water” can be found in bathrooms too. If you want them to stop visiting the toilet every day at exactly 4 pm, simply use cold water instead of hot ones! They’ll get scared off by the sudden change in temperature after being so comfortable with soft lukewarm water all this time.

If your indoor cat is still drinking out of the toilet then try cleaning it every day. This will show them that you’re not okay with what they’re doing, at least until it’s spotless!

Who’s your cat’s favorite hero of the Overwatch video game?

It sounds weird, but some cats simply love water. Any kind of moisture might be enough for them to stay occupied for hours on end… which is more than enough time for you to finish cleaning up the bathroom or taking a shower yourself.

Their gathering behavior is a way of teaching the rest of their group where they found something to eat, so they’ll probably answer this question with a “Meow!”

When my cat smells the dead animal’s scent glands, it’s

A: checking if there’s anything ready to be killed!

B: getting a whiff of the predator’s territory

C: trying to eat it as quickly as possible and then bring another one inside on the way out. There isn’t any time left for playing around! They need those nutrients now.

Cats usually bring their owners live prey because they want them to make the kill. It’s not like kitties hate hunting or killing their own food (although some do), but they know that humans are better equipped to make the first strike. After all, who would win in a fight between your cat and a hawk? If you’re lucky enough to have both at home though, expect even more dead prey coming inside.

Cats are natural hunters, so their bad behavior means that they’re trying to communicate with you! They may think that the toy mouse is prey, for example… or they could be telling you about a meal they found somewhere else in the house! If your cat’s been meowing a lot lately, give them a treat and let them know that you heard them loud and clear. It might even make it less likely for them to cry out again.

Not only will this put an end to your kitty’s hunting behaviors once and for all, but it’ll also show her that she won’t get anything from you if she continues on like this. It’ll teach her not to bring prey back indoors because there isn’t any food waiting for her!

What does it mean when cat brings you toy?

A: She’s trying to kill it for you!

B: She wants to share her prey with you.

C: You never feed her, so she has to hunt and gather your food herself.

D: She wants you to make the first move like always!

E: It’s either one of those or “Meow!” since cats can’t really talk.

If your house cat loves water then there might be a few reasons why they enjoy it so much. Cats love moisture because that means that their coat will stay soft and healthy instead of getting dry and flaky all the time! They also need some source of hydration, especially if they’re living in a house without a garden where they can pick fresh water from the ground.

Your cat loves playing around in the shower just as much as you do, but don’t leave them unattended with soapy water or near a full bathtub! This could result in your kitty getting electrocuted or having its lungs filled with dirty water. If they love being around water so much then why not give them a special bowl to drink from instead?
