Nothing seems more anxiety-inducing for Andy and Dougy than change. Today, there was change.
Yes, every time I clean their fountain, the boys act like I’m taking their water away forever, and run around the room trying to follow me while I carry the dirty fountain to the bathroom to dump the water.
I finally bought a second fountain so I could minimize downtime to how long it takes to move the old fountain out to the bathroom and come back to the dining room to put the clean fountain in place to be filled.
Even then, I have two little fuzzballs nervously watching the whole process, sniffing at the water jug, the empty fountain, me…!
In time, maybe they will get over their anxiety when they realize the bad old days are gone forever.
