Anyone else's cat likes to drink out of your tank?

Normal cat behavior

My cat loves aquariums. Putting an aquarium on a dresser, credenza, or other similar piece of funiture that allows them to sit or stand right by the aquarium is a cat's dream.

My cat loves to sit by the aquarium and "bat" at the fish on the glass, get up on her hind legs and examine the fish and ... sit on top of the aquarium cover (I am just waiting for it to collapse with her on it.) She too would no doubt drink the fish water if it was acessable.

I rescued a litter of 4 at one point with my ex wife. The only male (subsequently named Havoc) liked to chew on the airlines at the pump and gang valves. A female (Miracle) from the same litter that is "gifted, special, slow" never understood the tops come off for WC's and would land in the tank during such. She got attacked by my 10" Red Devil quite a few times. The smartest of the bunch (Grey) would get the dumbest (Miracle) to sit on the RD tank for a distraction and then try to get the RD from behind.

Before my cat passed away she would always be drinking out of my sisters 5 gallon fish tank.

Yeah, my cat cracked the lid on my 30g. Luckily the light didn't fall in.

Yea, I hate that. But even if she didn't drink out of it I would still get it in there when I'm messing with my plants. As it's always stuck to my arms.
