Shadow Shot Sunday May 21, 2017

Lucy has a very interesting way of
drinking water...first she tests the taste
with her paw...

Making sure it is palatable...we think it's
something she learned when she was on her
own as a stray kitten.

Even though she doesn't need to worry about the quality
of her water now...she still tests it.
Have a lovely day!
Saunter over here to see more Shadows!


  1. There's my girl. She's the best kitty ever.

    Have a fabulous Sunday. Big hug to you and Russell and lots of scritches to Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

  2. Survival habits are hard to break.

  3. Delightful shadow shots with the adorable kitty ~ thanks,

    Happy Sunday to you ~ ^_^

  4. Nice shadow shots.

  5. Mikey lies down and drinks that way, dipping his paw and bringing the water to his mouth, because he's too lazy to sit up and drink!

  6. Our Linus McDonald does this at times - perhaps both kitties need to mix it up a bit, experimenting so as to make this doing a tad more exciting. Linus, however never discusses his reasons with his staff :)

  7. These shadowy photos give new meaning to the phrase, "testing the waters."

  8. my Angel Bobo used to do the same thing. Funny, I never tied it to the fact that he was a stray too........I think you are on to something because Cody never does it and Cody was adopted by me at quite a young age. catchatwithcarenandcody

  9. Caution is a sign of wisdom for this little one. Love these scenes.


I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers!
