Finding a Better Way

As refreshing as this bottle of water looks, Truffle is demonstrating why this isn't the best way for a kitty to drink water.
What do you expect me to do with this?

Even though Truffle can't drink water directly from the bottle, Mom Paula tends to pour bottled water in our pet fountains.  We have hard water and it tends to cause build up and discolor our ceramic fountains.  We've had a very hot summer in SC, with several days already in the 100+ degree temperatures.  We live in a house that has had the AC turned on since March, but it can still get pretty warm inside with those hot South Carolina sunbeams coming in the windows.  It's important for pet parents to keep us healthy and hydrated and the best way may be with a fountain.  We know some kitties don't like the fountains (Angel Sweet Praline didn't like them), but we've been exposed to them since we were kittens.  Stay tuned this week for a special announcement concerning our newest fountain and a give-away.

  1. That bottle of water does look refreshing, Truffle. We like to lick condensation from our Mom's water bottle. Do you?
    Stay cool and have a great day!

  2. We have hard water here too, and my human also gives us bottled water. It still leaves deposits on the ceramic fountain, though.

  3. Good thing you have your fountain.
    It is much easier to drink from than that bottle:)

  4. Mom Peggy always has to keep the top on her bottled water because Minchie likes to tease her and pretend he's going to knock it over.

  5. Oh that does sound very exciting. We just have a water filter, although that doesn't change the hardness. Still the woman can't bear to purchase all that plastic any longer-

  13. The humans need to drink lots of water too. Derby always liked to lick the outside of the drink containers that were wet.
