Eric's Day Flashback - The Drinking Fountain.

This week the flashback comes from October 2010 and is called:

The Drinking Fountain.

Earlier this week the man in shorts brought a package for us. It is a lovely black ceramic drinking bowl and we won it on Angus Mhor's giveaway. Mum told us it is a fountain but we would have to wait for her to go into town to buy a voltage adaptor.

She filled it with water and put it on the floor for us to get used to it.
Eric: I started drinking from it as soon as she put it on the floor. I like to put my feet in it too and see how far I can fling the water.

Mum was doing something by the water bowl today so I went to see what was going on.
"Hey mum! This water is moving all on it's own."

Mmmm, I like this moving water. It tastes better than ordinary water.

Flynn: I wasn't sure about it at first so I whapped it to let it know I wasn't afraid of it, then I had a drink. I like drinking from the stream before it gets in the bowl.
We love our drinking fountain. Thanks Angus.

You can also see a very short video here of why the fountain had to be turned off at night!

What a precious memory of the fountain's arrival. Pipo is a water splasher too...Whapping things is a good way to ensure they are safe:)

What a sweet memory! The head peep says she is thankful that we don't put our paws in the water and fling it around... unless there are ice cubes. Then we fish them out and knock them around.

Some of us like to put our feet in water too and slosh it all about. What fun to see you again Angel Eric.

What a nice flashback. And Flynn so glad your whacky paw sorted out that fountain

John Bellen said...

I'm glad that the fountain was a success - though I can understand why it had to be disconnected at night. No one wants to wake up to a flooded floor.

Colehaus Cats said...

Oh, angel Eric. We have little doubt you would have emptied that fountain in no time. Wonderful flashback!

Great flashback. We remember Angus Mhor too!

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

WE really enjoy the flashbacks and remembering others as well like Angus.

That video is so hysterical. Some of us are dippers and then we lick the water off of our paw. The scooping in unbelievable. Thanks for sharing this again for those of us who'd not seen it. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Kari said...

Eric, you really know how to bail out a fountain! And fast too! What a great gift- function and fun! We really love those old videos , they're Ike having you back again if only for a few seconds. You're never forgotten dear boy. Love always.

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

We miss Angus Mhor a lot. He was one of our bestie friends...

The Menagerie Mom said...

That must have been a great prize, Flynn and Angel Eric, even if a bit messy. Angel Eric, my Evan is just like you. He aims to remove water from any and every water bowl he encounters. I finally had to get one for him that has a drain pan around it to keep all of his sloshed water off the floor. Great flashback!

Bionic Basil said...

Hey Flynn, we loved today's Flashback, so lovely to Angel Eric!

Great fountain too, the P.A. just got us one a few weeks ago and we love it!

Have a great weekend buddy

Oh Bys, I am so glad you loved the fountain. You are big mancats. Some kitties are a wee bit afraid of fountains
