I didn't think the critters were drinking enough water. When I did find them at the water bowl, the thing was yucky. I was putting out four bowls everyday and filling them all twice just to keep them clean.
I did some homework and then bought them a drinking fountain. It's very quiet with a gentle waterfall and a little bubbling action. It also filters the yuck out. The dogs took to it at once but the kitties are suspicious. They think I'm up to something.
They may not like it but I do. Just looking at it makes me thirsty. The Mister on the other hand, thinks I'm crazy.
