Good Water Dish

One of Goro & Niko's water dishes
(Photo from long time ago)

Goro loves to bathe his toys

When it broke in 2012,
I got the same type of new dish.

Well, I ended up getting two, as the first
one I ordered was much smaller than I thought.
(This happens when you shop online.)

I like this type of water dish for 3 main reasons;

1. It comes with filter

2. Water bottle gives weight to the dish
(If dish is light, Goro bats it around and
spills water everywhere)

3. Water stays still
(Niko doesn't drink flowing water)

Well, water does flow when dispensed from
bottle into the dish, making bubbles...

Niko battling against bubbling water :-)

This water dish has become quite old.
So recently, I decided to get a new one.

The dish I ordered turned out to be
much larger than I thought.

This happens when you shop online...


  1. That is so funny that he likes to give his toys a bath! I have heard that cats will drink more if the water is moving, like a fountain

  2. One positive thing about your new dish on steroids is that more of Goro's toys can fit in it for their bath.

  3. I love the photos were you have help with ordering.
    The Square Ones have decided they only like the filtered water from the refrigerator. But outside they will drink the water off the brick patio. That is just so wrong !

    cheers, parsnip

  4. Hilarious Niko and Goro! We had a sisfur Shady who used to wash her toys in the water dish too. Maybe Goro, you is part raccoon?

    We thinks you is furry smart to battle the bubbles Niko. They might just try to get away.

  5. MOL! That is a dish on steroids! But just think of all the water they'll be able to drink.

  6. MOL! That is so funny! Water dishes from online are like a box of chocolates ... you never know what you're going to get. :)

  7. mol! now you have the whole gamut of sizes :) our mom had a similar difficulty getting Wriggley the right sized freezable dish online :) purrs,

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, HOllie

  8. They're like the Three Bears! One's too small, one's too big, and one's Just Right!

  9. Oh my goodness boys, theese ones sure can range in size from online...we thought of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears too! Niko what fun for you to battle those bubbles...have a wonderful week everyone!

  10. Aren't cats funny with their drinking habits.
    Rupert will only drink running water in the bathroom sink and will sit patiently waiting until someone walks by.
    Willow likes the bowl in the lounge.
    I never see Polly drinking, so she must doo it outside somewhere.
    Rowan likes to drink out of the full watering can in the garden and Princess isn't fussy.
    Oh, how we love them...

  11. Ha..Ha..Ha...on steroids!
    Love that...from now on, when my pawrents calls me F*% word! I will tell them , I'm on steroids...tee..heh

  12. We think the large size is great - all of us drink water! Actually, we have a fountain, and we do like it!

  13. that looks great! We need to get that for our fur babies

  14. ha ha - yup - M just ordered the wrong birdy feeder on line too. I love my water dish and am happy to hear you like yours too.

  15. We love the bigger one, and the bubble wapping too!

  16. I hope he enjoys his new dish. Looks a lot better and bigger.

  17. Hahaha. Oh dear. Mommy can't stop laughing. Hahahaha! You guys are so funny.

    Mommy can't get us bubbling water dishes because Tutu will splash all the water out of the bowl. ;)

  18. Dearest Tamago,
    Love this one you show! Looked it up at and they have it in white as well in half and in one gallon sizes. We use in the garage a cat fountain but often it does not function. Upstairs we use two heavy bowls as yes, they will bat it and turn it over at times... Cats are naughty!
    Lovely photos and I guess they KNOW exactly what we are doing for them and with them. Cats have a mind and a soul!

  19. Now that was one funny post. Too big, too small, too bubbly, Yikes. How about a big bucket that they can't knock around. You two boys are the best. Take care.

  20. I like these water bowls, in all three sizes! Once we switched from kibble to canned food, both cats just ignore the water bowls we have around the house. Maybe one like yours will entice my kitties to drink more.

  21. doods...we like yur new dish & fountin...think oh how manee fish ya can get a swimmin in ther !! ♥♥♥

  22. Esse bebedouro parece muito bom, nós temos alguns problemas com o prato de água, eles sempre arrastam e viram água pra todos os lados.

  23. What a funny post ... that new water dish is indeed a big one !
    Hope Goro and Niko are enjoying it ... :-)
    Have a nice week,

  24. hahaha yes, shopping online is a kind of lottery! We're always searching the best for our friends, isn't it?

  25. Sounds like a goldilocks story..too small, too large. But he seems happy though.


  26. Oh, I never thought Niko-chan doesn't drink from flowing water; their drinking habits is different, isn't it♬♬♬ I LOVED to read the way Niko-chan said 'Is this your Zen fountain?'(*^_^*) You ARE a thoughtful Mom, Tamago-san♡♡♡
    I had a really bad experience buying a bag though Internet many years ago, since then I've never bought anything through PC p;)


    Take Care and Be Careful for the heat.
    Wishing you two and your boys a Wonderful week ahead.

    Sending you lots of love and hugs to my dear Japanese friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

  27. I think Goro is trying to drown his toys as if it was his prey.

  28. We couldn't help but laugh at your results from shopping online. Better larger than smaller though. Love the pictures. Hugs and nose kisses

  29. That's so funny. We had a cat mystery in our house when I kept finding soggy wet cat toys. I couldn't figure out who was dunking them. I actually wrote a post about it that I called CSI: My Kitchen.

    Thanks for stopping by our blog!

  30. hahahaha too funny… "this is what happens when you shop online." I laughed out loud. That looks like a nice water dish though! Perhaps bigger is better??

  31. Oh this making mommy smile cause I too bathe MY toys very often. You look so handsome and kissable, boys. xoxoxox

  32. Sometimes bigger is better. Thanks again for stopping by and your kindness :-)

  33. Whoa! Looks like you got a DOG’S dish!

  34. Mom couldn't stop laughing. It's like a dish on steroid. Haha! Mom remembered herself. Haha!

  35. I have a bubbler too. But it doesn't look like that. Maybe there are lots of different sorts...

  36. Those are some fancy dishes! That's always the problem buying things on-line. You're not exactly sure what the size is! But it looks like the kitties enjoy their fresh water. Banjo has a fancy water fountain too. Only the BEST for our kitties huh? LOL!
    xo Catherine

  37. laughing out LOUD! you've got 'three billy goats gruff' water dishes!

    1. too small.
    2. medium.
    3. big enough to bump the ogre off the bridge!

  38. OMC!!!!!!!!! Mom bought me just like yours. I think mine is teeny tiny. Will link back to you once we post about it. I'm too excited!!!

  39. This is hilarious! Like a novel about water dishes with an ironic twist at the end that builds up suspense for the sequel! Hope the boys like their new, larger (!) bowl ;-)
