... but I'm not sure what it is.
As I'm sure I've mentioned before, Peno likes to dump her water dish. Tux's urinary diet food has a tendency to make him thirsty, so I like to have a big bowl full of water so he doesn't run out while I'm at work. (And it has to be glass - they won't drink out of plastic or metal bowls.) So I gave them my large glass salad bowl. It was very narrow at the bottom, and wide at the top, and for some reason, before drinking, Peno has to bring her water dish toward her by hooking her claws on the lip and pulling back. Of course, the shape of the bowl made it easy to tip, and I often came home to water all over the floor.
So, I started changing up the bowls. I thought my heavy mixing bowl would be a good fix, but nope she still manage to dump it. We went through a few other bowls before I finally, I gave in and gave them my favourite glass casserole dish (not really a big deal, Dave already broke the lid). It seemed perfect, it was shallow and wide and not so tip-able. And for a while, it worked.
Until the other day when I came home from work to water all over the floor. I thought perhaps they were just roughhousing and one of them bumped it or got knocked into it.
Until the next day when I came home to water all over the floor. *Sigh* ... I filled it back up and made mental note to start searching for something else.
But the very next morning, I woke up to water all over the floor again. Pressed for time, I threw down a towel, filled up the dish and ran out the door to work.
And what did I find when I got homek? The entire towel was in the water dish!
Any one care to translate?
In other news....
You may have noticed I've been a total blog slacker lately. Freelance work has picked up again and I've had little time to knit, or blog, or just generally feel sane. But, it's hard to say no to the extra cash.
However, on Sunday, I did say enough is enough! Dave and I spent the entire day on the couch watching the entire fourth season of the Tudors. And I knit away on the crackghan.(Cat included for scale) It's about 2/3 done, and I'm loving every inch of it!
So, I'll try to keep you updated (and get some knitting done so I have something to update on) but if you don't hear from me for a few days, don't worry, I can be found under a mountain of work, somewhere behind the accumulating pile of dirty dishes and laundry (because if you know if I don't have time to blog, I'm certainly not taking the time to clean!)
