So today I was at the feed store for the guinea pigs' hay, and I came across a reasonably priced filtered automatic water fountain for cats. I heard that they encourage cats to drink more water, and since it has a filter and its moving water, it probably wont get so scummy. I decided to buy it and see how they liked it. I got this model:
It was very easy to put together if you read the directions. It was leaking at first so I had to figure out what I did wrong, but after I put it back together, it works fine. It is so quiet and the stream of water is slow. I dont think my cats would like a noisy water dish, or one with a fast stream. It's nice and big, so it holds plenty of water. When I plugged it in, the cats were immediately interested..
Leo wasn't afraid, but curious. Dutch on the other hand was quite cautious about the whole thing! Neither have taken a drink yet, but I will let you know if it happens. I have read that some cats wont touch the thing. We will see.
While at the feed store I also picked up one of these bad boys, I knew it would be a kicking toy for Duchess.
and of course, I was right!!
On another note, sorry I haven't updated lately. I think as a new blogger it is very hard to get the motivation to post new topics regularly, especially when I am just starting out. How did you guys get the motivation and the ideas to post topics regularly? I would love to hear from you.
