We got our cat from the Humane Society last May and she's been a welcome addition to our family. She's 7 years old and very fat. I measure out her food and feed her half in the morning and half at night (it's always gone by morning and she acts like she's starving in the morning when we get up. After going to the bathroom, I have to go feed her because she makes that much noise, in fact, she tries to wake us up to go feed her!) I change her water every morning, and sometimes a second time during the day. She likes to drink from the sink faucet and it's starting to bother me because she'll lay on the counter and just watch the water, she won't drink! We leave it on as little of a stream as we can, but she'll just watch it for a few minutes before drinking (if she doesn't run off first.) I can't sit there and watch her to wait to see if she starts drinking, but I also can't keep our faucet on all day for her like she'd like. I'm trying to keep her from drinking out of the faucet, and when we wash our hands after going to the bathroom, she looks at the faucet expecting us to turn it on for her. The past few days I've just walked away, and dh says that I'm being mean to her. I want to break her of the habit of drinking out of the faucet, it's not like she doesn't have fresh water. Am I expecting too much of my cat?
