Re: Water bottle or water dish?

Ralph's vet suggested I try a water bottle for him, but Ralph would have nothing to do with it. He hated the bottle and squawked at it angrily until I took it out. So he has his dish of drinking water, which also serves as his bathtub (he won't bathe anywhere else ). He does occasionally dunk things in the water, but I just change it for fresh water when he does. He never dunks pellets any more since I started soaking a few for him and offering them a few times a day. He thinks they're a special treat.
