    Invisible Monsters in Your Petís Bowls? (Or do you keep them really clean?)

    This is an article about how important it is to keep your pet's food and water bowls CLEAN.. Washing them thoroughly after each use.. Why plastic bowls are a bad idea...
    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE.

    This crew's water and food bowls get washed at least once daily - even if they look clean. I know that plastic ones aren't the best choice, so that makes washing thoroughly even more important. With 5 cats and a dog all in the house, I always make sure that they have fresh, clean water, since everyone drinks from whatever bowl they feel like. There are 2 big plastic ones in the kitchen, 2 stainless ones in the family room, and a plastic and a ceramic for Wolfy in my bedroom. Of course the cats like Wolfy's, and Wolfy likes the ones in the kitchen - go figure!!

    I am guilty of not cleaning the food bowls enough. I feel that I clean the water dish enough, though not daily. We have a large stainless bowl in the kitchen for all 4 kids. And there is a small water dish in the "cat room" since Jax gets shut in there each day.

    Ok, I'll do better to keep the dishes (all of them) clean.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!
