Same situation here. We emptied the entire floor and swept and vacuumed. It's been months and we are STILL finding beads. Our little one will pick up the beads and carry them around. I finally realized that she had no intention of eating them and stopped stressing about that. The scary part is that we missed a piece of the vase and I caught her carrying a large 2x2 shard of sharp glass in her mouth. She didn't understand what all the panic was about!

They never do! LOL And they won't let it go either! At least, I haven't found a way to get a cat to drop something when they don't want to.

someone mentioned something floating in the water. Actually, Fleder did that for years! There was some small red plastic ring off of something and she would carry it around sometimes. Then I noticed she had dropped it in her water dish. I took it out and tossed it somewhere, and the next day it was back in the water dish. We went through this a few times before I realized she was doing it on purpose and wanted it there, so I left it alone. I figure she was using it to tell her where the water level was.

Didn't have a chance to read back so this may have already been suggested but I use a "Drinkwell" fountain. Works like a charm and have had it for years. It helps my cats to drink more water because they enjoy drinking it when it is falling and not sitting. Would be difficult to knock it over too. I swear by it!!

I have the same problem. This is what I do.

Step 1: Buy a kitty food mat (made of plastic)

Step 2: Buy double sided instustrial velcro tape (velcro on one side, sticky on the other). These are water resistant.

Step 3: Put a velcro sticky on the food mat.

Step 4: Put a velcro sticky on the bottom of the bowl.

Step 5: Stick together.

Voila! Kitty can't push the bowl around the floor!
