Water Boy

In the spirit of Silly Tuesday...
We worked hard to keep Rocky off the the kitchen counter. I thought he was doing well, but one day I didn't turn the faucet completely off. I turned around to put something away, and turned back around to see this. I had to grab a phone shot before I scolded him. Well...OK, so maybe I didn't scold him at all. ;-)
Somali cats are known for their love of playing in and drinking running water.

Leev is definitely forbidden to jump to the tables. It has understood the thing that when a table is covered or something else goes wrong, the cat must be on the table to make sure everything goes well.
