Vivaldi Wants a New Water Bowl

Posted by Francesca

I was getting a drink of water yesterday while that pesky Vivaldi was hanging around in the kitchen.  He stared at me the whole time while I was drinking.  After finishing, I pretended to be asleep and he thought I wasn't paying attention to him.  Low and behold, Vivaldi actually drank out of the same bowl!  The nerve!  What was he thinking?

Look at Francesca lapping water from that fancy gilded bowl.  No wonder she acts like royalty.

Look at this bowl designated for the cats' water!  Fire King depression glass, once found in sacks of flour as promotional items and given away at gas stations!  How ordinary!

Well, now that Francesca is full and belching, I'm going to have a good look at this special bowl.

Oh my!  It's so artsy and even has a dog's face in its design.  It even looks like a French bulldog!

I must admit that the water looks really, really good in such a fine bowl.  I can't help but salivate!

Do I dare venture into uncharted waters?

I think I deserve to drink out of a golden bowl.  I am, after all, a highly sophisticated and cultured feline!

Oh, wow!!!  Was that ever good!  Not only a gilded bowl, I'm envisioning one that's also encrusted with precious jewels!  Cats should also be treated like royalty!  In ancient Egypt, after all, felines were worshiped as gods!

Now, how do I convey that to Martha?

  • Vivaldi what would the holidays be like without a mischief from you? Photo #2 says it all: "Hmph, how dare I the great Vivaldi a regal Himalayan be served in such a common dish. The audacity of it all!"

    That was very bold of you drinking from Francesca's dish. If she ever finds out... You do need to gather the other cats and have a pow wow with Martha to discuss the bowl disparity. :lol:

  • That is sooo cute! Where did you get the gilded bowl from?

  • OMG!! Cat tongue in your water bowl?? F & S you need to put your paws down enough already.

    And of course you two should have a golden bowl only fitting for the queens of the house :) Let that furball go drink from the toilet.

    We have one big community water bowl and mom has a special mat for under it that absorbs the water. Precious is a mess when she takes a drink. She takes these big loud slurps then turns her head to see what's going on and the water slobbers all over the place. I'm telling ya she has no manners. I on the other hand take cute little slurps but afterwards I hack and burp - I'm so adorable :)

    So yesterday I stole one of my Christmas presents from the bag before it was wrapped. It's this really cute stuffed rabbit I can't wait till Christmas. Mom said I'm getting coal in my stocking if I don't start to behave. With only 4 days till the fat guy comes I better start being good.

  • Oh Vivaldi you are such a shee-shee-fruu-fru cat! But yes indeed you look like royalty...the bowl fits you well, although I like Fire King myself...either way the water must taste good from each bowl.
    Staying with us is a Himalayan cat named Kyle(not a very sophisticated name,eh!) he is delia's grandcat...boy it's been interesting here having an indoor cat and a Shi-Zhu dog to take care of...and we have all been drinking out of the same bowl too! We all respect each others feeding station and never touch the others bowl of food. As a feral cat I have adapted quite well with strangers in the house, but then I get to go out in the snow while Kyle can only watch.

  • Give it a rest, Vivaldi! What do you want, a tiara? Dogs rule!

  • Hello Ladies,
    I can't believe a cat drinking from your water dish. And a fine and regal one at that--only appropriate for the queens of the household. You girls better have a meeting with Mama Martha pronto and get this problem straightened out.

    Oh, I saw the two of you on Martha and the Christmas Tree, animated special last night. I liked all the wintery costume changes. Dad went shopping, so Mom and I had fun watching the show.

    They are getting tons of snow in the mountains of Colorado, foot after foot. But not here down in town. It looks like we will have a dry, dry, Christmas. Bah humbug.

    Have a great day all!
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Vivaldi you had better watch yourself. If you drink out of the dog’s bowl, you’ll start to bark. At least that what I’ve been told. I drink out of the dog bowl all the time and I bark a little; must be true then. Wait, hold on there; I am a DOG. What am I thinking??? I have to admit that my bowl isn’t that good looking, but it still gives good cool water. Now a song is running through my head, “Don’t you listen to him Dan, he’s a devil not a man,” make it stop! Where was I? Oh yeah, Christmas is almost here and, like most of you, I can’t wait. Mommy says that I have to, sooooo I’ll wait.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., Francesca, you sure do have a beautiful water bowl and I can surely understand why Vivaldi feels a bit left out since he just has a Fire King green glass bowl. Probably the easiest way to get him a nice gold cat water bowl, would be for you to ask Martha to get some for all of the cats for Christmas. Then maybe the cats would quit pestering you dogs. And you would all live happily ever after. Have a great day! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • I know how you feel. But I did want to say cudos to you two for last nights Christmas Cartoon, it was great!! You two were funny and made the whole show.
    Merry Christmas!!!

  • Hi Sweeties,
    What I want to know is who moved Franny's bowl in picture #10 over to the counter in picture #3. Were you trying to sneak it out of the room Vivaldi and when you got caught by Franny, you took a quick sip to calm your nerves? I guess we'll never know, eh? Be good you little cutie pies!

  • NewMom wants to know where you got such a fancy water bowl from-- gold is Millie's favorite color, but she says she'd make us share. The kitty who lives in our house, Willa, will sometimes drink from our water bowl, which is one of those fancy ones where the water circulates. But not as fancy as your gold bowl. I try to stop Willa, of course, but she is a cat and as such is sneaky,
