    I love how the water just doesn’t seem to “dig” away… really cute.

    I use those ceramic dishes for my canaries because they make an excellent bathtub. Looks like they make great bathtubs for rats too!

    One of the handiest dish designs ever. Rats love to have a wash, and are often seen perched on the edge of their water dish, gleefully washing and splooshing all over. Vasco was a serious bather, and deliberately waited for me to show up with fresh water, and was the first one to bathe.

    Other rats much prefer water to a rat box, too. Havelock preferred a ‘toilet’, so I kept a larger dish of water on the floor, for that purpose.
