About the cat behavior stories

Did you ever have a cat that was fascinated by water or had had an extreme love of fresh water. See our story about the cat turning on the faucet problem we had and how we fixed it.

A visitor writes: My Seal Point Siamese Cat {Jango Cat} does this weird cat behavior thing when we play. I throw his mousy and he runs towards it to play with it but the strange thing is that he carries it back to me.

He will put it in his mouth like a dog as if to play fetch, and he will do this mostly every time I throw his mousy. Does anyone play fetch with their cat? Our response: Our boy cat Thomas plays fetch for a few rounds but then decides to keep the toy (mousy) for himself.
