Sister Saturday Caturday Art with Dolly and The Pond

sister saturday dolly 01 04172021

Hello sweet friends, thank you or coming by to visit with me on Sister Saturday. I know, I know, Seal and I both start out our posts like that, but that’s because we really mean it, we’re thankful when you visit. All in all Sister Saturday is pretty much fun, we like doing it.

We all see a lot of stories about how important it is to keep us kitties hydrated, and doggies too of course. Well, at our place that’s not a problem. We have a fountain in the kitchen, two water bowls in the kitchen, a water bowl in the big bathroom, and of course “The Pond” that you see me at right now.

There’s a back story to “The Pond” and it has to do with doggies. There used to be two bigger doggies live here, PD (pre-Dolly), and this big water bowl was their bowl. The cats at the time loved to drink out of the big bowl too and the Mom and Dad started calling it “The Pond” since it was way big for kitties. So, when the dogs, Angie and Ginger (they were sisters) moved to The Rainbow Bridge the kitties asked to keep “The Pond” as a lasting memorial to them. That’s a true story, or at least that’s as Brian tells it.

Okay, enough about all that water stuff, it’s time for my art for the Caturday Art Blog Hop…

I think that’s a wonderful back story for The Pond. No wonder you enjoy drinking from it. I have water bowls on each floor – actually I have TWO on the top floor. One in the master bathroom and one in the guest room where I do a great deal of napping. Then there’s one in the kitchen and one in the basement. Mom gets a lot of exercise just cleaning out and refilling all my “ponds” every day. It’s good for her right? Nice photo of you at your Pond Dolly!

Hugs, Teddy

What a cool story about the pond. Yep, my three go through water like crazy but thats okay. They need it. I remember PD (Pre Dakota), many, many, many, many (are you getting this?) years ago when I owned my first dog after I married and moved away from home is how many, many (etc) years ago…..anyway, her name was Pepper, she had to come get me more then once to let me know that she was out of water and her bowl needed filling! She would run in the kitchen and look up at the sink. When I got… Read more »

now that is a nice pond and memory, Beau said to tell you he has 2 ponds, one inside and one outside . and mama has a hard time keeping them full. each time he drinks, he takes if to half full, or half empty, depending on who tells the story. This Luanpic Landscape is the best I have ever seen using Lunapic landscape. it is perfect, purrfect and pawfect. Blue Ribbon Perfect

Hey! We got a dish just like that! Purrhaps we can talk Mom into changing the big stainless water bowl…the pond would be more cat height! Dolly you look gorgeous in the photo and the Art is purrfect! We LOVE it! We hope you all have a marvellously happy day!

Whoa! That pond is HUGE. I didn’t know there were dogs in your house ever. If any kittens lived with you they could fall in there. I have a bowl in the kitchen a cup in the bedroom neither of which I use and the fountain in Pop’s room which I always use exclusively.

That’s a great story, Sister Dolly! Samantha used to like to drink out of the dogs’ big bowls and fountains too. ♥

awww I LOVED the story behind “the pond!!” I can relate, Roary (and Cody too for that matter), both had/have a water bowl in the kitchen and bedroom, where did Cody and now Roary ONLY drink? Dakota’s bowl and now Levi’s bowl. Drives me crazy but they both refused/refuse to drink out of their own bowls!!

Sounds like it’s easy to stay hydrated at your place – especially with the pond!

Love that story of the pond, Dolly and love your picture and the artwork too. I have a few ponds too in and outside and I like to put my paws in it too. I need to know if it’s furresh water, and when it moves it is, right😸Furresh Pawkisses for all of you🐾😽💞
