Hazel basically doesn’t drink water if she is inside. She loves puddle water, rain coming off the gutter spout and will even drink from her cheap plastic dollar general bowl outside on the back porch. But she will not drink inside. She has stainless bowls for food and water. Nope, won’t drink from it. So I swapped the stainless for the cheap plastic one …bringing it inside. Still won’t drink. I got these to have as portable, take along bowls when we’re out. Just for the heck of it, I opened one, filled it and put it down, inside next to her food. She was curious and tried it. Now it is her inside bowl. It’s wonderful to hear her slurping her water indoors! She likes it. I’m happy!
