this might interest some people who don't want to spend a ton of money on those plastic or glavanized waterers. i even saw a thread where people on here complained about both. this would be a cheap alternative: 1-empty cat litter jug 1-water pan recycle a cat litter jug with a screw on top and drill a hole about a inch above the base of the jug, set inside a water pan. a instant self - waterer and for cheap! i just wanted to share, because we have priced the store bought ones and they are expensive!
