Is clumping one's H2O intake into one half of the day okay? I'm busy and constantly on the move until about 5 in the evening, and don't really have time to drink water. I still get my 64oz in, usually between 5pm and 11pm. Is this style of water intake detrimental?
I have two energetic one-year-old cats who love to knock over their water dish. I've tried several different types (at first they had a standard ceramic dish, into which they'd drop their stuffed toys until the toys absorbed all of the water (and got extremely gross), so I switched to a water-cooler-style dish, with a jug on top that fills to a dish in the bottom.

Is there a better (but still inexpensive) cat-watering system?
