You should visit Amsterdam if you want a big fix of cats.
The KattenKabinet founded in 1990 is full of cat related items.

$50 aerating water fountain (waterfall and pool), with the top off so he doesn't even have to crouch down to drink, freshly cleaned and filled, with ice cubes in bowl to chill water (as the cat begs for). Idiot Rudy yowls to go outside to ....

drink from the downspout - runoff from the roof - which he contorted himself practically upside down to get his head under there. :roll: And stand in the splashblock getting his paws soaked. :shock: :shock: Should've taken pictures; it was so ridiculous.

Just think of it as the feline equivalent of a kid at Christmas getting an expensive present and spending the rest of the day playing with the box it came in...

Panda has a very odd fascination with the fridge. Every time I open it he sprints into the kitchen and immediately tries to jump in. This is despite continual shoeing, nudging with feet, yelling and nearly shutting him in a few times. After careful consideration, there is a portal to the cat version of Narnia inside. It's the only logical explanation. :meow: :roll:

Aren't you having a heatwave at the moment? As someone permanently wearing a fur coat, he could be trying to chill out . . . or maybe just smells something tasty in there . . .

According to the QI Elves on Twitter:

Do you think Greebo had a Sandcat somewhere in his ancestry? :meow:
