Merkitty vs. the Boot Tray

Well, we had an almost 2-week truce.

I moved the water bowl to a boot tray (a big plastic tray with raised ribs that allows mucky wet boots and shoes to drain).

For a few days, there was no water spilled at all.  Then there was a bit, but it stayed contained in between the ribs.

Soon there was a little more water spilled, but it was still contained. The silly human had the ludacris thought that maybe this would work out and she’d buy an extra boot tray just for the Merkitty’s water bowl.

Not long after that, water was splashed not only into the boot tray, but outside on the nearby floor.  Then there was a LOT of water on both the boot tray and the floor, plus an adjacent rug. And then the blue mousy went for a swim in the boot tray that was flooded with water.

Needless to say, the boot tray, while it seemed like a good idea at the time, has been retired.  Maybe my next option will be to try a water bowl on a raised stand.  What think you?
