|Merlin: because I just moved less than six months ago, I don't know anyone in Gainesville except my sister, her family, and my doctors. Although we do know our condo complex neighbors a little bit they have dogs, not cats, and aren't close friends Mom can trust with her unit keys. So there is nobody who can go to my condo except two full-time doctors with a 6-year old and twin babies. I can't do anything about their inability to come more than once, which is just being nice because they don't like cats very much anyway.
Mom finally decided after reading lots of Amazon reviews buying a fountain is a horrible idea because she realized it can only be used when someone is home and the whole point was to make sure Patricia has enough water during my trip to Columbus. So I gave in to her requirement that it be a gravity style water bowl, not the kind with a pump and electric cord. I bought both the water and food containers to have a matching set at Petco.
Unfortunately, all that time spent looking at waterers was wasted. Patricia's age (almost 16) and breed (American shorthair) made her a horrible candidate. She decided drinking nothing is better than drinking out of a black and white tower with a shallow bottom. We were not surprised. After 15 years of using a regular bowl, any scaredy cat would turn up its nose at that thing. So I took both back to Petco and bought two very cute ceramic bowls that hold ~8 ounces of food or water. They were irresistable: black and white feiling silhouettes all around the outside and on the bottom.
