I bought a pet dish from Walmarts for around $4. It has a place for food on one side and water on the other. There is a place to put a 20 oz pop bottle up side down in the center...and it "feeds" only into the water side. The nice thing is, the water bottle can be filled 1/2 way and frozen, then finish filling and twist onto the dish (I do this upside down, then turn it right side up when I`m at the spot I want to set it down, to avoid spilling when walking with it from the sink.) The ICE keeps the water cold for hours!!
Inside the food area is a second liner-type dish, so that you can take it out when changing either or both food and , or, water so that the food does`nt get wet. Both cats LOVE the cold water. I wash their dishes once a day(rinsing VERY well...important for cats as they are sensitive to soap ) and change the water twice a day, to keep it cold for them. Between the 2 of them I`d say they drink 2/3 of noth bottles of water in a 24 hr. period....so they really do like it cold! (The only potential prob with this bowl set up is that it is plastic, but so far we are`nt having any problems with it)
I anyone knoes of something similar to this only in metal or ceramic...please PM me with info as to where I might find one. Thanks!
