Jennifer George lives in a semi-rural area of San Diego County. She has been blessed to have some of the best guests in her yard. During the summer of 2019, she noticed a lot of animals in her yard. Therefore, she came up with an awesome idea on how to get a closer look at them.
George put out a metal bowl with some water in it for the puppies, and suddenly that was the reason why more and more animals started showing up at her house. Who ever lives in California, knows about the hot weathers that rule the place, therefore, a bowl of water means a lot.
Shortly after, a little bowl of water turned into a thirst trap for the animals who started coming for a sip of water or a bath. In addition, this ‘animal thirst trap’, was soon upgraded into a bigger bowl and a solar fountain. Now a variety of animals come to visit George’s backyard every day for a refreshing drink or free pool party. To make sure that she gets a closer look of the visitors, George put out a camera next to the fountain.
George lives in a large property and enjoys her visitors a lot. “I put a bowl of water out there to attract them, because I didn’t want to make them dependent on us for food, and because it’s very hot and dry here in the summer. Birds started showing up almost immediately to drink and take baths during the day, and at night we’d see other nocturnal animals like skunks, opossums, and bobcats drinking. I was excited to look at the camera every morning to see what showed up,” she said.
