He's messing everything up when he's drinking water

Hello everyone! I'm new here on Catster and I just realized how many things about cats I DON'T know. Anyway, I just wanted to ask, why is Socks's creating a mess when drinking from his bowl? The walls are almost about to lose their color! I don't knowshrugWe have tried with different bowls, but the same every time. The water gets everywhere and we can't be every second behind him and dry the water... Any solutions? thinking

Hi, Socks, your pal Monster here. I read in your diary that you like to swim in the tub, so it sounds like you like to play in the water bowl, too! Maybe your mom could put a plastic mat under your bowl and tape some plastic onto the walls around it so they don't get wet.

i think you're right Monster! A water player!

I have seen people with similar problems talk about this bowl:

And also moving to a water bottle. Like for rabbits.

Hard when they like playing in water so much. I feel your pain as I knew a cat like this! We just put up with his antics.

I think they are talking about the hanging bottles. I would try the bowls first. They look kind of interesting and harder to play in.

Is it possible to drink from the hanging ones? I mean.. It sounds a little bit odd... Whan my mum had given me this bottle-bowl (like the ones they have in some shops) put my foot in and I started playing like a maniac. My mum went mad.Completely.

Some cats will use the hanging ones. Meowma got one for me after I played in my water bowl at a cat show, then rolled in cat litter so I looked like a breaded fish stick...Meowma didn't se intil it was almost my turn to be judgedbig laugh
