2. Hahaha!

My cat does not drink from my toilets because the lids are kept down.
He has a water fountain. I think the toilet bowl bowl might not be well received...Othello knows what the human litterbox is.

3. I had a dog who would only drink from the toilet. I thought that maybe with 5 people

and only 1 bathroom that it got flushed so often it was always fresh.

If someone left the lid down, she would sit beside the toilet and bark until someone opened it for her. When she got older, she required the seat to be raised as well so she could reach it.

4. They'd probably prefer the "real thing" with vestiges...

... of bacteria still in the water.

Like drinking from a stagnant puddle outside, the kind of thing that modern humans have learned to avoid.

Europeans long ago often drank beer because they knew water could be lethal, but they didn't understand that the boiling process of creating the wort (unfermented beer) was the key difference between the mortality effects of beer and water.
