Okay does anyone have any cats out there that will topple over their water bowl. Lol. I'm just asking. As few may know I have a new kitten and I already have another one and both of them will do it. My older cat will spill her water if their is not enough water in her bowl and today I walked into my room and the younger cat did it as well. I'm thinking though she may have done it because her water is dirty. Does your cat do this as well.

i have a self feed for my cat. one with a plastic liter bottle filled with water and it dispenses water from the bottle to the bowl as the cat drinks. and it has another bowl fixed into it for food. but my cat has his own separate food bowls, too. i also have a food dispenser for dry food, for if i need to leave for the weekend, at least my cat would get dry food until i return.

My husband and I have thought about getting one of those the self feeders. That does sound like a good idea. May take a look into that as well.

I have a cat at home and he is one of the most wonderful creature I have ever seen, he is so mischievious that sometimes it becomes difficult and we are puzzled to see him do things in the house, he has done it, topple the water bowl and not one time but several time that we have stopped giving him a bowl, there is a place where he can drink water if he wants outside the house and one inside the house.

I am going to start doing that just giving a place were they can eat and drink and not be near the water bowl all the time.

I have one cat, he is about a year old, and yes he does the same thing. I do not know why they dump the water, so i will be watching if you get any replies. I know mine will do it even if it is fresh water just put in the bowl.

Wow, yeah that's what my kitten has been doing now. So hopefully we can get some tips there was a poster above that had gotten a different type of bowl that may work

I used to have a cat that would do this. I always thought that it was his way of telling me that he wanted fresh water. I put a stop to it by buying one of those bowls that is bigger on the bottom than on the top. After that, there was no way that he could flip it over. He also had a peculiar way of eating. He would take one piece of food at a time out of the bowl and lay it on the floor. After he had about five pieces or so out, he would proceed to eat them one at a time. Then, he would start all over. It would take him forever to eat. LOL

Lol omg that is too cute with the whole food thing. My older cat will carry food around in her mouth and drop it in various places and I'm like what? How did this food get here? Lol. The whole bowl thing sounds like a good idea, I may look for it here then hopefully that will help with them both.

I have been cat sitting for my daughter's 2 cats. They have one of those water depsensers where tge water is in a tower and fills the bowl. Boris knocks the entire tower over every day and spills water everywhere. He also slaps the water as well as putting his 2 front feet into it. His sister, Natasha, doesn't do any of this. It's just something he does.

every cat I've ever had has done that. I don't know why or how to stop it.
