All black cat with green eyes - looks like a little alien when ears pulled back - approx. 5 years old - likes to bite but playful bites although some a bit hard - petite frame

Pound cat we understand was returned 4 times to the shelter before we adopted him. While he is thin, but not unhealthy thin, he has the most energy of our three cats. Additionally, he loves to chase and is always chasing our female cat, especially away from the food bowl. We think he's been an outdoor cat in the past as he always loves to go outside. Now that he's learned we won't let him become an outdoor cat, he actually jumps into the vinyl pet carrier anytime we head for the back door to go outside, even if it means being constrained to the carrier. We also firmly beleive that this cat would be really tough to keep as a single pet in the house - he clearly needs others pets to chase. Anything to get outside! Perhaps this is why he wa returned to the shelter so many times.

But his love of water may be the strangest thing about this cat. We can't figure out why but he frequently puts water, either from the water bowl or the bathtub faucet, on his forehead between his ears and eyes. This behavior occurs often, at least several times a day and almost always late at night. Also, he seems to do this before he gets a little rowdy or after returning from a trip out-of-doors - It's as if he thinks he is Rambo or something! This ritual is just keeping us wondering in amazement - any ideas or comments about this strange cat behavior are welcome...
