Rocky is like any other four month old boy cat: insatiable curiosity.
And endless discovery. And endless enjoyment from certain discoveries.
Thus we come to Rocky and the water bowl.
When we had our golden retrievers (Magic died in July of 2012 and Tabitha in June of this year), the cats and the dogs all shared a couple of large stainless steel water bowls. After we lost Tabitha, I just picked up the larger of the two and left the smaller bowl for the cats...not the best thing in the world for the cats but it was what they were used to drinking from.
Until a couple of days ago.
Rocky has always been one to enjoy getting his paws wet. He likes to play in the bowl, watch the water splash and move (he appears to be super visual), and he likes to lick the water off his paws. Then came the discovery....
Rocky found that if he stood on the rim of the bowl and shifted his weight just right, he could tip the bowl and make the water run all over the floor (note: DO NOT ever put wood down in a kitchen like we did, sounded like a good idea at the time..no, no...bad, bad idea!), sending his human mom into a really cool frenzy of loud human noises, contorted facial features, and lots of action with towels and vowels.
Rocky's people are kinda on the slow side...it took him doing this three times to convince them a new bowl was in order. We are temporarily using a Corning bake dish with a square bottom until we either get to PetSmart or checkout a kitten proof cat waterier on Amazon.
*Sigh* always something with a kitten in the house. Lucky for him that he is just way too cute and lovable to ever get mad with...well, maybe a little...for a minute or two.
