Well I was feeling guilty. The girls (Scarlet and Esprit) turned two on the 24th, Tuesday, and I have been working 14 to 15 hours a day for over a week and was not really around, even for the birthday! What a bad kitty mom I am!
So tonight I bought the big gift, a deluxe fresh flow petmate fountain. I bit of a big purchase but with the girls being twins the gift is divided by two right?
I have been meaning to do this for a while as Scarlet likes to leave pipecleaners in the normal water dish... and this last week there have been many catnip mice in the bowl soaking up all the water (and it is a BIG bowl!) and turning the water green (I swear they are making catnip tea!
I have to admit that I am a little nervous leaving the water dish plugged in while I am gone for 15 hours at work, I read up on them and did not find any problems but the instructions DO say not to leave it plugged in while not being monitored. Anyone heard of any problems with these dishes or had any problems? I also have really hard water, anyone had difficulties with hard water and these bowls?
I have to say the purchase is worth the moment I realized I was standing in the middle of the kitchen with the three cats, all with our heads turned sideways, watching a water dish eagerly anticipating the water flowing down the ramp!! (my own dinner neglected in light of the new toy, whose present was this really I wonder?)
