Chloe has many weird habits, but this, by far, is the weirdest. She is completely and utterly incapable of drinking water directly from her bowl. She has done this thing for years where she dips her paw into the water, and then slowly and delicately licks the water off her paw. Let's take a look, shall we?
Exhibit A: The dipping of the paw.
Exhibit B: The licking of the paw that is now wet.
This usually continues for a good 15-30 minutes before she has gotten her fill of water and moves on. But before she can leave my kitchen counter, she must shake her paw to get rid of the excess water. That water always ends up on the window, causing water stains that I must clean off. Thank you, darling. Mommy appreciates that.
