A few weeks ago I was at the garden store, looking around and saw a pretty cool water fountain for the deck. The extra cool thing about it was it was on "end-of-the -season-clearance-sale." I brought it home and got it all set up. Of course Miss Oribel had to check out the new thing on her deck right away.
It got her stamp of approval and she seems to enjoy having her own personal drinking fountain outside. I haven't let her in on the fact that I saw a dog using it at least once. (Yes, those really are her whiskers. Did you think she would hold still long enough, or put up with having extension put on to make them that long?)
BTW, you might want to check out Whiskers on Wednesday for entertaining links to cat photos.
