    Mine does. Maybe it's because the water is fish-flavoured:p

    Mine would rather drink out the loo than their own dish of clean water! They now either drink out the dog dish or the paddling pool outside full of dirty water.

    My cat refuses to drink freshly poured water in her bowl UNLESS she has witnesses you first hand getting it out of the tap! She prefers water out of the garden that is dirty, go figure! Oh and i have caught her drinking the water out of the toilet!!!!Why!!!

    if they could talk I am sure they would say 'because I'm a cat and it's what I do'! :D I bought a water fountain for Katy....she looked at it with scorn on her face and .................had a drink out of the kitchen sink!

    ....because it tastes fishey?:D;)

    Sorry that was quite a bad joke, to answer your question as we don't have any other pets (besides a hamster) that lives in water Mozart doesn't get a chance to drink out of a fish tank. I think it's an impulse really...but I don't know....
