DIY – WATER BOWL WARMERS
Here’s a simple design:
Or watch this 5 minute step-by-step video by Animal Equity, which clearly demonstrates how to create your own water bowl heater that is cordless, doesn’t require batteries, and is made using everyday, easily accessible items. It was tested in -16 degree winter weather and it took 4 hours before the water started to freeze. An inexpensive, easy way to save a street cat’s life.
Or go online and find a durable water bowl (like this one ) that’s equipped with it’s own heating device (and the cord is chew-resistent!). We found this 5.5 litre water bowl among the products listed at Princess Auto stores (they are across Canada). A very similar bowl was found on Amazon.ca (a 1 quart bowl from “Farm Innovators”)
