Saving water lick by lick


freddie cat in dishwasher

I had a new dishwasher installed today that according to the specifications uses significantly less water than normal dishwashers.

When I opened the door for the first time I realized why. A high-tech feature known as a “Freddie” licks the dishes clean before the washing cycle is activated.

What a fantastic invention for water-starved California!

Another module known as a “Frankie” constantly checks the Freddie element to ensure it is in working order.

I’m not sure if you can order a dishwasher with the same Freddie and Frankie components. But I do know that similar units such as Fluffy, Sammy, Tigger, Romeo and Twinkie are available at your local animal shelter. Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed they are waiting for their forever homes. And you don’t even have to buy a dishwasher, unless you want to!

To pick our your new water saver, click here to go to the Los Angeles Animal Services website.

I am an explorer and creative person. I've had many jobs, careers and interests... everything in life and the universe fascinates me. Born in Brighton, England, I've lived my entire adult life in Los Angeles, California. A few years ago I rediscovered photography which is a great excuse to get outside and look. I'm also in the process of re-writing some of my unpublished short stories and possibly a novel. .
