Ophelia, our plump and domineering housemate, refuses to drink water from a normal dish.
At first she would sit next to my mom and drink my mom’s water. My mom is pretty easygoing when it comes to animals but she balked at finding cat hair in her ice water.
So she set up two cups of water for the cats. She keeps them filled.
We think about getting a fountain for Ophelia. But my mom says she has to draw the line somewhere. For me, it’s a coat that I don’t need (but would add another twenty degrees of cuteness). And for now, Ophelia’s drinking from a glass that’s definitely not empty.
