Does Your Cat Love Water?

One afternoon, several years ago my cat Captain Jack Sparrow was with me in my backyard. He strolled up to a glazed flower pot saucer filled with water and started drinking. The saucer was perched upon a concrete stepping stone at the corner of my patio.

But this month, she was returned to her family in Arizona thanks to

“We were inspecting the riverside which was muddy and covered in garbage when I found her there beside the bamboo trees,” Ayalde told The Dodo. “She looked like she drowned in the flood and just got caught near the bamboo trees just like all the trash.”

Ayalde approached the kitten and called out to
