Our new little man is very used to being in a crate. We gate Lady into the Laundry room when we are gone. For the time being, I am leaving Prince Valiant in the crate and Lady in the laundry when we are gone. This is only until he fully adjusts, then I would like the two to be together in the laundry room. This seems like a silly question, do I leave water for him in the crate?
