For several hours yesterday, I had taken the boys' normal water bowl, a LeBistro Waterer, away and put water in stainless steel bowls. They didn't play with the water in those, but I also couldn't tell if they were drinking any.
Then, last night, I decided I'd put the LeBistro back b/c I was worried that the boys might not be drinking enough. I put it back, but I only filled the water in it to a low level and didn't put any in the reservoir so, they'd have less ability to splash it around. So what happened? This morning, I wake up to feed the boys and find the LeBistro knocked over on its side and a puddle on the floor. Fortunately, there wasn't a ton of water in it, because I had only filled up the bowl portion of it, but it was still a puddle that had been sitting there for who knows how long.
I'm thinking that we need to switch to some kind of really stable, deep bowl that doesn't tip over. I wish I could get some kind of water bowl that the cats suck water from. I see one place that sold standing waterers, but now seems to be temporarily out of business.
Any bowl suggestions? Also, if I get a new bowl, will the boys refuse to use it?
