I just bought a very cool terracotta birdbath that I'd like to turn
into a fountain. It comes in 2 parts, the basin, and the pedestal
stand, which are both terracotta. The idea is that the basin is
balanced on top of the stand, not 100% stable, since I also have the
cat that curiosity killed, who will want to jump on top of the thing as
soon as I put the basin onto the stand.
Anyone have any suggestions for a semi permanent method for improving
the security of the stand on the pedestal? It doesn't have to be able
to survive a 9.0 earthquake, but a little better than it is now would
be great. I obviously don't want to drill + bolt it, and if I ever have
to move the thing I'd like to be able to get the two pieces apart.
Suggestions? Some kind of Caulking? [assume tack strips, screens,
razor wire, automatic water squirters, slavering dobermans and other
types of cat deterent devices are a non-ideal solution].
