are you fed up of dripping water bottles in your pets cage soaking everything,

but find the other water bottles either too expensive, or not sure whether to try in case they leak too

these are the cheap plastic version,they do do posh metal ones which are expensive in pets at home youll find them in the bird section as coop food cups they blimin brillaint at catching drippy water from bottles, can be used on indoor cages ot outdoor they hook on easy,


I cannot be sure though of your bun ripping them up. doc my main destructor has tried and failed so far.

just a thought guys spesh to those who have lots of buns not wanting to replace all the bottles ?

Does it get in the way of them reaching the spout or do you just put it really low?

you have to put it low, frosty has a big dewlap and is a large lop, so hers is actually is as low as it can go and her bottle only raised one hole up, otherwise it can get in the way if too close hers is a large dish though not sure on the small ones

not sure on giant breeds on if it will get in the way,

they do differant sizes small or large,

I am so sick of soggy vetbed and newspaper in my GP cages, I have tried the expensive bottles and they still leak or my guineas are just messy :lol:

im really trying to find a link to make it easier for people to find them, there are loads of american sites, and theres differant types. i use the one pictured with the 2 wire hooks,

ive seem them in pets at home but they are not advertised online, so i cant give a price, im going to pop into wilkinsons at some point and look at there pet bird section see if they have any
