I bought this because under and around the water bowl my kitchen tiles would get wet because I wouldn't take the time to wipe off the bottom This is a great solution. It's water absorble, it's decorative and my floors stay clean of excess water and any food crumbs that drop. I bought another one for the boys that is a darker color and it sits under the big water bowl that they share.
The mat was beautiful and it had her name on it but it was not the quality I was expecting. Probably will not last but a few months.
