One of my girls drinks by dipping her hands into a liquid and licking her hands. Anyone else seen this before?

Mine does that too, and then he likes to stick his paws in there and wiggle them about splashing water everywhere. Funny furries!

Nugget did that to, but earlier today she was drinking regular. It's really cute though, and it's not uncommon. I also had a rat that was playing in his water, 'digging' in it, then stopped when I noticed him! I'd only seen him do it twice when he was an adult, and he never did it as a pup. It was so funny and cute!

I saw an article about an experiment on returning rats to their natural, wild states. There were several ways rats would drink in the wild and this was one of them.
