Why do cats prefer to drink from a birdbath rather than their nice clean bowl indoors?!

Yes, they can taste the chemicals in the water, after about an hour the taste goes so they prefer it then, in the meantime the bird bath is fine especially if their is a bird in it :)

Cats prefer to drink from birdbaths because they are not "nice-clean-bowl-indoor-animals" ;)

Time to confess Sylvia...you failed to put out water for the kitty! :-)

My cat will drink out of the birdbath and also out of a bowl in the kitchen sink....she will not drink the same water from the same bowl if it's put on the floor by her food dish.

They sure do have a mind of their own! =^..^=

My cat drinks out of a watering can that we have to leave full specially for her, Rarely see her drink from her own bowl, Nice image you have captured by the way.

The mind boggles, Demi prefers the rinse water from the dishes I think she may be addicted to the taste of soap....;-))

This cat was made for pictures & his friend too. If I leave my glass of water on the end table our cat always drinks out of it. She got a surprise one day when it was iced tea. Surprise was on me ... she liked it.
