I spent a decent amount of time on Sunday wandering around Home Goods looking for inspiration. I always seem to get ideas there, even if I don't end up with purchases. I made a lot of mental notes on furniture and decor, and ended up purchasing one item. Well, I guess technically 2, but it was in 1 box.
*BACKSTORY* When we had just 1 cat, we used rice bowls I had purchased years before at Christmas Tree Shop as Daisy's dishes- one for dry food, one for wet, and one for water (even though she only drinks out of her water glass on the coffee table, but thats a story for another day). When we expanded our family to include another fuzzy purring being, we started using more rice bowls. Charlie is a typical guy (I had no idea that cat's fell into the gender steriotypes too!)- he's a messy eater and the bowls ended up in disarray and knocked over with half the food on the floor. I love my cats, but I don't need my house messy because of them.
*FLASH BACK TO THE PRESENT* Home Goods to the rescue!! I found a box with 2 ceramic serving trays for $9.99. With 4 compartments, it is perfect to have dry food in one, water in another and use the remaining 2 for the dinner rush of their daily wet food. With 2 serving dishes- one can be in use, while the other is in the dishwasher: PER-FECT! (yes, pun intended, sorry). Looks worlds better than having 4+ disheveled bowls and these Charlie can't knock over!
