Caturday Art

Can you guess what this doodle means? You'll get the details tomorrow!

Our Tip of the Day:

Is your kitty, or even your pup, a water dumper? Especially cats often like to dig at their water bowls, one reason being that this mimics the motions they make as kittens in order to stimulate their mama cat’s milk production. If your kitty is one of those who turns a water station into an ocean, there are ways to help prevent this.

First, you can simply try using heavier bowls. Stainless steel bowls with weighted and often skid-proof bottoms might be one solution, for example. Sometimes even simply a thick, heavy ceramic or glass bowl that does not easily give in to a cat’s slapping paws will do the trick. You can even try getting a skid-proof mat, on which you can place a skid-proof water bowl to help even further reduce the chance of spillage onto the floor. There are also bowls on the market that are meant to help prevent spillage from digging, such as bowls situated in a stand with grates, so that splashed water can drain into a basin beneath the bowls rather than onto the floor. If all else fails, you could even attempt a bowl that is in some way attached to the wall or floor, so that the bowl is unable to move altogether. In such a case, though, still always ensure that the bowl can be removed as needed for cleaning and freshening.

I'm a water digger - we have a real heavy bowl, but I just like playin in it.

The only thing I can guess is that maybe there is a new member of your cat family.

Looks as if there will be some dancing tomorrow. We have water scoopers...Lily was the worst. But having an immovable bowl wouldn't stop her. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

The pets in your very cute doodle are excited about something, that is certain.

We don’t so much have cat bowl splashers as a big, lazy draper. Mikey lies down next to either the food or water bowl, drapes his paw in and get it wet or grabs a piece of kibble, and brings it to his mouth. We say that half Maine Coon is the laziest cat on earth!

I love your doodle, I see Angel Rosie and possibly her brother and all your current furbabies including Toby. I can't wait to find out.
Great tips, Polar Bear and his 2 wives love to tip the bowl so I ended up getting a really big dog one. :)

Mudpie paws at her water bowl every now and then. I always fear she's going to upend it on the rug. LOL Love your art!

Me thinks there's another four-legged furbaby moving in. Just a guess.
I'm not a water dumper. I only sip out of the fountain. I never drink from a bowl.
