As most of you know a couple weeks before Christmas our beloved cat passed away.
Slowly we have been able to remember Acoya with fondness instead of sadness.
But the other day my husband brought something to my attention.
He has always been the one to change the pets water bowl throughout the day
(yes he can be OCD when it comes to things around the home) so i never noticed any of this.
But i did notice Pilot's incessant need wanting to go outside. When we do let her out she
drinks continuously from her outdoor water pail.
Okay so where am i going with this story?
My husband can tell that Pilot has not been drinking the water in this bowl. The water level
stays the same. He even watches her as she eats and sure enough she does not
drink from it.
Because this is the water bowl that she shared with Acoya.
I contacted Pilot's trainer and told her this story.
Was it just another one of her quirks?
No she said Pilot is grieving and waiting for Acoya to come
back and she will probably never drink from this bowl again.
So i replaced the bowl with a temporary glass bowl.
Sure enough after watching her eat her dinner she sniffed the bowl and walked
She stills goes in Sam's room and looks under his bed and in his closet for the cat.
She even went into our room looking under the clothes wagging her tail in the closet.
It's been the saddest thing.
I'm thinking maybe a beautiful ceramic bowl might do the trick.
Have any of you heard of Janaki Larsen Ceramics?
I found her on Pinterest. She is from Vancouver, BC
Her work is spectacular and i love love her bowls!
I can just feel them in my hands.
The colour tones are gorgeous and soothing... to look at !
Maybe now that i am living here in BC i might come across some of her
Might be a little too nice for a water bowl...
On second thought ...way too nice for a water bowl..
kind of insulting for Janaki to have this on the
hmm...would be much better on my harvest
Thanks for visiting!
