Bad habits

Edmund the cat is ready to drink only from the water tap.It was not like this at the beginning but i think i spoiled him after he got the kidney stones. So now i have to stand by the water tap few times a day and let him drink. Other wise he will suffer again from those stones.I know i posted about this before but i am so amazed how i  manage to spoil every creature that owns me .

  1. We couldn't get by without them, so there is no harm in pampering an animal companion a little. They always give back in more than equal measure.

  3. If you leave out some water in a dish he will have that if he is desperate and you can still do the tap with him for a bit of fun.

  6. Both Monty (dog) and Freddie (cat) used to prefer to drink from a running tap. Monty outdoors, and Freddie from our bedroom hand basin. I think it's quite common; but goodness knows why!

  7. Don't forget that we people need to drink lots of water too. At least 2 liters a day is recommended.
