The Happier the Cat (or Dog)
This isn't really a giant water dish for cats, it's The Pool. Actually it's a 100-gallon Rubbermaid stock tank we stole from the animals, but when filled with cold underground spring water pumped up from our deep well, there's nothing more refreshing than plunking yourself into it at the end of a sweltering summer day.
It's the perfect size for two, and when accessorized with hanging citronella candles (oh, the mosquitos were bad this summer!), an icy bottle of homebrewed beer for him and a glass of chilled champagne for me, it's actually quite romantic—even with the dogs and cats circling around us.
Pool season ended months ago (and besides, we now have that luxurious whirlpool tub in which to soak our tired selves), but as you can see, I just haven't had the heart to drain it out.

© Copyright 2009 FarmgirlFare.com, the thirst quenching foodie farm blog where it doesn't seem possible (or right) that it's been 15 months since I've put up a picture of Kit Kat Kate, who I rescued from The Slammer two years ago next week (where does the time go?!). This sweet little five-pound feline is always doing something extra cute; apparently she's just not doing it in front of the camera.
