Did you know that I used to work at a veterinary office? My undergraduate degree was actually in Pre-Veterinary Science and for many years I planned to become a vet myself. I’ve always loved animals, but I consider myself very much a “cat person.” There’s something so calming about petting a purring cat, don’t you think? Our cat, Mr. P, is a huge part of our family so my boys recently helped me make him a little cat friendly water bowl planter!
We got the idea for the planter while standing in line at our local Petco when picking up Mr. P’s Purina Muse® cat food-it’s an all natural, grain free cat food made with real fish or poultry-no fillers or chicken by-products (gross!) During an internship at the Cincinnati Zoo in college I worked with their big cats and learned first hand how important it is to feed cats a real diet…just like us, they need REAL FOOD to be at their best!
While in line at the store my boys pointed out the cat grasses and catnip plants displayed by the cash register. We decided to pick up one of each for Mr. P along with his food. Once we were home I nestled them with some potting soil in a low, wide planter and added another smaller water bowl in between them.
As an added bonus, any water drips from his water bowl just water the plants!
Mr. P is thoroughly enjoying his planter-and his Muse Cat Food, if you have a super special cat in your house, give it a try. It’s 100% balanced for adult cats, comes in dry and wet varieties and is backed by Muses’ Clean Plate™ Guarantee! You can find Muse at Petco.
