I love my cat, but God he's such an asshole. I've gone through I don't know how many different kinds of bowls only to come home from work to water all over the kitchen floor and the dog giving me a "It's like he doesn't even care about me being thirsty" look. Yeah, you know what look I mean.
He kept flipping over his round bowls, and I can't use a fountain because besides being ridiculously overpriced, the closest outlets I had to the bowl were being used. A rectangular dish is harder to knock over because of its shape, but how to make it jerk proof?
Start off with a heavy glass or ceramic rectangle baking pan and non slip shelf liner.
Trace out the bottom and hot glue your shelf liner to the bottom. For extra non-slip protection, I hot glued treads to the bottom of the liner too.
It's now March, and Felix has yet to flip over or spill his new water bowl! Now to keep him from dipping his dirty litter paws into it...
