Onto the bottle!!!

Post by gemma997 on Wed Nov 04, 2015 1:07 pm

Soundwave currently drinks out of a bowl and now he getting bigger and more boyish, I want to move him onto a drinking bottle.

Currently I've tried squeezing the bottle - ended with a wet soundwave and floor
I've tried pushing the wee ball in to show him - he thought it was a game and I got used as a platform to jump off

Any more ideas?????

Stick with the bowl. Sounds like he's happy with it and I think bowls are best....
Why?
It's nothing to do with maturity of the bun it's just ....
Easier for the bun to drink from.
Easier for you to clean

Do you know if there are bowls that can't be tipped?

I would also stick with the bowl. Bottles are a pain in the ass!!!

If you get a big ceramic bowl he'll not be able to tip it. Molly and Junior's is huge!

I'll post a pic later or search for "swimming" in the search function and you'll find the thread from when I bought it Smile

Holly has a plastic water bowl and surprisingly enough, she has never tried to tip it over. I have had buns in the past though who have though.  She has a white ceramic one at night which sits on the bed when she is asleep with me.

thumper2001: Had a look, that is a big bowl and it will work for him Thumbs Up

Jo: He's knocking it when he moves his pen about, knocking it over when he jumping in/out of his cage or he sticks his blanket in it and soaks up all the water (does it to wynd me up) lol

I offer both but find they except Bowles more likely. Vernon was used to bottles at the rescue as soon as he tried the bowl for the first time that's it. Never used a bottle afterwards. I recently found new ones that you can refill with out taking off, worries me that they might not be cleaned. 
So basically stick with the bowl.

This type of bowl may be what you need.

He won't tip it and you can elevate it up the side of the pen so he doesn't put things in it.

Miranda is the same but she refuses to use a bowl.
That is really worrying about the bottles encourages lazy people not to interact or care for their buns Mad

Woodwench that is brilliant ideal for him, thank you thank you thank you.

Hey hunni

Bowls are generally better for buns as its a more natural way of drinking. A nice heavy bowl will do the trick :-)

Ha ha Gemma, sorry hun, I know it is annoying for you but what a little character.  I have had buns actually tip their water bowls over. Thanks for that Woodwench love, it is very similar to the one Holly has.
