We got new floor covering in the kitchen because of damage from a leaking water pipe, so we felt that the pets water bowl needed something more posh than yesterday's newspaper to sit on. The reason for the paper was Amber's habit of pulling the bowl with her paw so she could watch the water move (and slop over the side). Sooooo.....I cut a towel in half and made a couple of mats with doggie fabric I had just hanging around. Amber doesnt seem to mind that there are no cats on view. She thinks she is human anyway. She always comes to the kitchen when the kettle is turned on. Do you think she would like a cup of tea.
