Pretty Pleeeeze…?

Mr. Sunshine turns on the charm

Mr. Sunshine will try every charming approach to get what he wants, and right now he wants a drink of water from the bathroom faucet. Who could resist? He has the most classically beautiful face of all four of his siblings, the nice wedge shape from his chin to his ears, exotic slanted yellow eyes and long, long straight whiskers and he’s the most curvy, and he knows if he catches me just right I’ll have a hard time turning away.

Jelly Bean is in the background, taking a break from his charming routine while Mr. Sunshine works. After all, you can’t go wrong if you just sit in the sink and keep your nose right under the faucet.

I do turn the faucet on for them every day, though I make sure they also drink from the water bowls around the house. Still, a stainless fountain may be in their future.



From health and welfare to rescue and adoption stories, advocacy and art, factual articles and fictional stories, "The Creative Cat" offers both visual and verbal education and entertainment about cats for people who love cats, pets and animals of all species.

    I don’t know what the charm is with the bathroom faucet with my kitties. At least two of them are on the counter at night when I’m trying to get my contact lenses out. I turn on the water to distract them but they just have to “help” me by knocking my lens case onto the floor or spilling the cleaning solution over just before I get my lenses out or in.

    • These guys grew up in the “old” bathroom with leaky faucets, and even though it’s been remodeled they still want their drink every day. They’ll even settle for the kitchen faucet too. I think it’s just fun along with being fresh water.

  • Oh my, I couldn’t turn down that look ever. That is the best.
