Why do cats stick their paw in the water bowl then lick the water off their paw? Am I the only one who thinks that's weird?

    But cats do a ton of weird things. You just learn to adapt to it. lol

    Some cats are paranoid? I have seen a few do it, like they're testing it for something.

    It's easier to drink, maybe. Or they're just lazy. My cat doesn't do that, but he will if the tap water is running.

    Maybe they are just tasting to see exactly what it is before taking a big drink.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I believe it has something to do with the domination of the human race.

    Maybe checking to see if water is IN it, as over time, so many owners forget to refill the water bowl, evolution at work, lol

    its just another way of getting the water--its not weird at all. I've only seen mine do that when they cant reach the water to lick it---so they stick thier paws in it:)

    I thought it was to moisten their paws a little before they start cleaning,but my cat does it with anything.You can't leave a glass of liquid out or my cat is there dipping her paws in it.Milk,soda,wine,beer,coffee, anything.She licks it off and keeps going.She sits and waits to see a glass or a cup set down.
