New Watering Hole

Being in our bedroom these days is like being on the open plains of the Serengeti, in that the cats have discovered a new "watering hole," and are both working to claim dominance. 

We have electric heat and it causes a lot of dryness in the air. Blair read that placing a small container of water in front of a vent helps add moisture to the air. So we filled a small tupperware dish with water and placed it on the floor in our bedroom in front of the heat vent. 

The cats LOVE the water dish. Like the lions of the Serengeti, they take turns at this new watering hole, eyes glittering in the dark as they lap up the warm liquid. We fall asleep each night listening to the constant "schlup-schlup-schlup" sound of cats drinking their body weight in fluid.

And just like a real watering hole, there is a pecking order. You do not approach the watering hole if there is already an animal present. One cat crouches protectively over the dish while the other sits on its haunches across the room, hoping a crocodile appears to drag the dominant cat underwater in a death spiral. 

I expect a pack of zebra's to show up any day.
