    Kittens tipping water bowl

    Kittens tipping water bowl 8th Sep 17 at 8:17 AM
    So my terrors kittens have a new game where they move and tip up the water bowl. As it's only water I don't mind for my carpets sake but do worry about them going thirsty all day (they eat wet and dry food and I'm out at work all day). Any advice on preventing this behaviour?

    They also like to cover up their food bowl and forget about the hidden food but they usually don't cover wet and dry so I worry less about that

    Get a non-tip dish like this one https://m.petplanet.co.uk/p16242/non_tip_anti_skid_cat_bowl.aspx?ptm_source=google& ptm_medium=shopping&ptm_campaign=negative_risk_612 00&campaign=324014531&adgroup=24641921891&content= 214012163251&keyword=&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIh4zzsoaV1g IVCc-yCh3PZwCOEAQYAiABEgJUkvD_BwE

    Or make own by sticking their existing bowl down onto a bit of sheet material (plywood/mdf) that they would have to stand on to reach their bowl. Epoxy glue would be best, but duct tape might work temporarily.

    They currently use this 'non skid' one and manage to tip it up! http://www.petsathome.com/shop/en/pets/stainless-steel-meow-bowl-15cm
    A heavier bowl might be the answer....

    A dog bowl similar to the one you're already using might work. They tend to slide rather than tip
