As expected, as the snow melted, I found the cats’ missing food bowl.
Now I’m wondering, how on earth did it get there? It’s not like it got shoveled up there by accident. It’s under the newest snowfall, and a bowl full of frozen water woud have fallen right off the size of the shovel I was using, not to mention I would have felt the weight of it.
I figured the cats would be happy, though. I already filled two bowls with water, so I knocked the ice out of this one and filled it and the remaining bowl with food.
They rejected it.
They did actually eat out of it a bit, going back and forth between the two, before all of them went to the one bowl, even though it meant one of the cats ended up being pushed into a bowl of water.
