Reclaim Water From Defrosting Freezer

We have a small dorm size refrigerator that we use for extras like sodas, water, and party food. It is not frost free, so in the summer it frosts up easily. When I defrost it, I try to catch all the water that drips off then I remove the big pieces as they become loose. I then use the ice and water to fill the cat water dish and to water the plants I have in pots. Why pour it down the drain is what my mother would say.

Watering the plants is great but lets give the kitty fresh water please. They don't drink much.

I agree with Lilac, great for plants, but I wouldn't give it to any animals.
