Vanna is a cat with a lot of personality. And she loves to imitate her owner, Maria. She became fascinated with the shower and the running water. Most cats soon figure out that the bathroom faucet is a source of entertainment as well as being a good place to get a drink. But Vanna has also decided that she wants the water running over her. Maria is happy to oblige and she even adjusts the water so that it is warm. Vanna moves around under the water as is if she is bathing and wants to get herself entirely clean. Vanna actually asks for her "shower" every day now.

For years, people have asked the question: "Why do cats prefer running water?" This has baffled most of us, but animal experts believe that it's an evolutionary thing that goes back to when cats were wild animals. They instinctively knew that stagnant water was more likely to carry disease and infection. Running water was more likely to be clean and safe.

Cats also have a fascination with things that move. Many people have cats that wait at the sink for the tap to be turned on, even if they have a bowl of readily available standing water to drink from. And many cats alternate between drinking and pawing at the water. Having natural curiosity and an understanding that the water is coming from somewhere, it is very likely that this playing is actually a form of inquisitiveness, as much as for entertainment. It is highly unusual however, to find a cat that enjoys being immersed in water, even partially. Vanna stands with her head under the stream and rotates around under the tap to get herself as covered as possible. While doing so, she even enjoys a drink and a little bite at the stream of water. At one point, she stands still, obviously enjoying the sensation of warm water running over her neck and back.

Vanna's owner can also be seen checking the water temperature to ensure that it's not too hot for this adorable cat. Pets provide us with endless hours of amusement, especially when they are acting a little bit like a person.
