I find that when I had a placemat under Miikka's water dish she was sharpening her claws on the mat and always upturning her water dish. She would cry and cry and cry until the situation was remedied.
I have taken away the dish and this has solved that situation.
I also use two bowls for her water. One is a double dish type made out of plastic. it is VERY hard for me to flip over, so I doubt she will be able to.
The other dish is a like a "guacamole bowl". Its pretty heavy but easier than the plastic dish to flip.
