On your other thread it was talking about how you were a bit broke or something at the moment and you couldn't afford to keep trying wet foods, is a cat fountain really a good idea in that case? [Correct me if i'm wrong
Oh, no...you're not wrong. I mentioned in my original thread in this particular idea that we were thinking of getting one eventually
...not right now. I'm just concerned about them drinking tap water because the tap water here in southern California has a particularly high content of additives (such as chlorine and such), and I've been growing a bit concerned about them consuming that junk, and what effect it might have in the long run.
But, yes, we are having financial trouble right now (mostly from a customer that's being difficult about paying the $2,000 he owes us, so now we're hurtin').
The thing we keep running into with the wet food is that Hobbes will sit there and eat an entire can in one sitting (my little piggy), and I really don't want him to get fat from eating it just by himself, which he'll kindly do (he's about 15lbs right now...mostly muscle...and I don't want that to change). I was just hoping to resolve her not liking the wet food so they might possibly actually SHARE a can of it...ya know? With Hobbes being the only one eating it (that and the fact that we've found no good way to preserve a half-can of food for the next day), we find no reason to continue buying it...especially with our current financial situation.
Does all that make sense?
