    Pet fountain

    Advertisements
    I want to get my kitties a water fountain thing for Christmas. Any suggestions? Any brands that you love/hate?

    They're NOT the type to drink out of a stream of water (like the sink or something) so one that has a big stream likely won't work. They like to dip their feet in and lick the water off, or splash it out of the bowl into a puddle and then drink it.

    We had a dog-it fountain and the animals loved it, but I was unimpressed by the longevity of the pump in it. I am currently shopping for a new fountain, and haven't settled on one just yet...

    We have had this one for a really long time and the cats love it. Ours do like the water fall on it, but it's gentle and adjustable so it may work for you. I did replace the pump on it about a year or so ago but only because I thought that it had gotten a bit noisy and it bugged me. It worked fine and didn't bother the cats, I just like silence sometimes and I could hear it. Petmate Deluxe Fresh Flow

    We also have this one and ours love it but the water flow is different and yours may not like it if they don't like the actual stream of water. Drinkwell Pet Fountain

    I saw this one at a friends house, it may work for you. They had just gotten it when I saw it and her cat liked it but I don't know anything about it other than that. K&H Cat Clean Flow 80oz Water Bowl

    I had the Fresh Flow and it ended up leaking and causing damage to the wall. I switched to the Drinkwell and the dogs love it. I do have it sitting in a plastic tray now in case this one leaks too.

    Amazon.com: Drinkwell Platinum Pet Fountain 168oz: Pet Supplies
    Amazon.com: Drinkwell Platinum Fountain Mat, MAT-D2: Pet Supplies
    This is the one we have for our small dogs. Sushi didnt like it at first becuase of the fountain part but now she doesnt have an issue with it. It doesnt splash or anything shes just not good with change.
    We also got this floor mat to go with it and it helps contain spills.

    It might help to provide the information on which model/brand you had so the OP can keep it in mind as they choose one

    My cat has this one: Boots & Barkley® Pet Drinking Fountain 50 oz : Target

    She loves it. She doesn't like a water fall either, so this works keeping her water fresh.

    It was her Christmas present last year
