We've been trying to think of ways to get the boys to drink more water. If they have their choice, they would much rather drink out of a pond, the bathtub, or glasses than their water bowls. All three love clean, moving water. Les researched a lot of different kitty water fountains, and tried to find one that would be easy to fill, easy to clean, small, and quiet. Vladi's birthday gave us an excuse to order some kitty goodies, and today they arrived... including a water fountain.
and cleaned it out, filled it with water, and plugged it in.
The water bubbles up a hole in the center
and spills over a plastic dome.
Come and get it boys!
Uschi arrives first and takes a drink right away.
"Hey, my paw fits in here!"
(Its safe, the pump is way at the bottom under a plastic barrier)
Tanji arrives to check out the new toy.
It's Tanji's time to try a drink.
Uschi looks a little nervous all of a sudden.
"Watch out Tanji, I'll protect you."
Now, both brothers are not too sure about this new gift.
They move to a safe distance.
Who is going to save the big boys?
Vladi realizes something is up, and heads in for a closer look.
He takes a little sip...
Pat, pat, pat...
in addition to the bathtub and water bowl. We'll see.
