Birdbath bowl adhesive
Hello--I've found a ceramic birdbath I really want but I'm concerned about the top getting knocked off and breaking. I have a cat and he never catches birds, but I can see him potentially jumping up there to drink from it. (Although the way the bowl is shaped, I don't think he will because he would probably slide into the water.) I also have dogs that could possibly run into it.
The maker of the birdbath makes a birdbath adhesive that is like a removeable plumber's putty that stays soft. It's expensive though, and I'd have to buy it separately from the bath and pay extra shipping. I'm wondering if the putty adhesive for posters, etc would work. The Loctite brand says it's waterproof and freezeproof, but it's not recommended for outdoor use for some reason. I wouldn't leave it out in freezing weather anyway. Then there is something called Quake Putty for sticking stuff down in earthquakes, RVs, boats, but I'd probably have to order that, too.
Have any of you had this problem, if so, what did you use?
