with the warmer weather right around the corner (please no more snow, i'm sick of shoveling out my colony) i want to get some dishes that will keep the tiny critters out. my colony is located right on the edge of a large wetland preserve in connecticut so ants and slugs are a real pain in the neck, especially since one of my cats takes her sweet time about leaving the "housing area" and coming over to eat.

does anyone have any recommendations?

thanks for the recommendations. i will probably get a couple of the bowls since it seems that it would work on the slugs as well.

I think that bowl would scare my two. They are so very suspicious of anything new. I did try putting the dry food dish on another shallow dish with water in it but the cats wouldn't come anywhere near it.

i would have been concerned about that a while back but now, since i have spent a lot of time just hanging out with my colony, i am almost certain that if it is coming from "daddy" they will dig right in.

my guys and have developed a good deal of trust towards me. i can come right up to their houses while they are in them and they don't even move a muscle but if a stranger comes within even 100 feet they take off. with so many jerks in the world i am really glad that they seem to understand that i can be trusted whereas they should be very cautious with other people.
