Bowl or bottle?

I have been reading everybuns journals (as I always do) and it struck me that there are him-port-ant things that we don't know about each other.

I was wondering, do you prefer to drink from a bowl or a bottle?

In my young days, I always had a bottle to drink from, but then I was given the choice of a bottle or a bowl, and I must confess, since I got used to using a bowl I wouldn't swap back for anything.

What do you all prefer?

We all use bottles because they're more hygienic, especially for us lopped buns and it's easier for mum to monitor how much we drink.

We all use the valved EziFilla type except for Bentley-Bun who uses the old spouted Classic type that drip.

You see I disagree about the hygene thing. We have 2 bowls and they are washed out 3 times a day, that's more often than our bottles were. I agree though that if you ARE going to use a bottle that the ezi-filler ones are the best.

I don't mind a good bottle every now and then!

Which type do you go for, the ezi-filler or the standard?

Erm .... well, some of us like bowls and some of us like bottles to drink from. Wupert from outside likes to drink from a bowl in his hutch but from a bottle in the run.

Bobbin likes to drink the water being poured into the bowl which is funny to see as quite a lot ends on her head.

So really we are half and half on the water drinking preferences :-)

Its a bit of a dilema deciding which is best. I have one of those non drip bottles which I manage to flood my cage floor with at least once a day as I have found if you keep you tongue pushed up against the valve thing the water poors out, I like that.

I quite like having a bowl tho now I have got used to it although Mum says I can't keep it cos my ears will end up going mouldy.

We all use bowls Cedric, none of know how to use a bottle. Only one who used a bottle was our Treacle gerbil

That's very civilized of you

Star began with a bottle but they were always messy. When I came along mom thought I didn't seem interested in a bottle so she gave me a bowl. When Star and I began living together, instead of being seperate, mom left both in but soon got rid of the bottle altogether. It's nice being used to a bowl as if I'm going through the kit-chin and have a thirst, I can just nip it from the meows bowl! Besides its great fun to throw our toys in there, especially if mom needs to see that we are displeased about something!

We both drink from the bottle. Never tried it from a bowl.
May. 29th, 2008 02:42 pm (UTC)
You should give it a go, I think you'd like it

I drink from a bowl, don't like bottles. Infact the dog and i share a bowl.

But fursonaly i prefer coffee, freshly knocked over and then licked off the carpet. It tastes even better if you can manage to get the dog the blame for knocking the mug over.

Licking the carpet is good, you can get all kinds of intersting flavours from it

We have a bottle. Mum tried me with a bowl once but my ears ket getting wet.
We have 2 bottles, just in case one stops werking and we have the Ezi-filla one wrapped up in a bottle snug to keep it cool in summer and stop it freezing in winter.

We ALL like the bowl. Bottles take a lot of work. We don't like to work. We like to play.

Love Hans

We don't get a choice! We always have an ezi-filla bottle, the only time we've ever had anything else was when Miffy was poorly and she had a bottle and a bowl - not that that helped! She was being far too melodramatic to drink from either....

We have an Ezi-filla bottle.

I have a highly efficient method of getting the water out, which also has the added advantage of making as much noise as possible and keeping the two-foots awake. Moab, on the other hand, who is far too considerate and thoughtful to the two-foots in my opinion, tries his hardest not to make any noise whatsoever. He presses the bottle tip with his upper lip, opens his mouth and lets the water run in. Or at least, that's the theory - what in actual fact it does is run all over the floor, all over him and all over me if I'm too close. He is highly inefficient.

I prefer a bowl. We have both and while Mom's cleaning our bowls, if I'm thisty, I will drink from the bottle, but bowls are the best!
May. 29th, 2008 08:45 pm (UTC)
I have both, but I'm not really sure how to use the bottle. I love my bowl. I lick water from it. Sometimes, I just lick the sides of the bowl.

We both use the Ezi-filler bottles. Sometimes in the summer, mummy offers us water in a bowl as well, but she has to hang onto the bowl while we drink otherwise it would go everywhere! Ollie in particular used to drink some water and then to show that he had had enough, would nudge the bowl hard with his nose and tip it over!
