My cat had always refused water in a bowl... He would only drink running faucet water while getting himself wet and messy. I tried countless weaning techniques with no success. Until I got this fountain! Although wary at first, my boy fell in love with this quickly! The fountain is easy to adjust for different levels of flow, simple to set up, fill, and clean, and kept the water fresh for days. This is a great pet fountain, especially at such a low price point - and much bigger than anticipated!

Pet fountain slime is more than a disgusting inconvenience. Pet fountain slime is usually “bacterial biofilm” that develops when airborne bacteria attach to a surface and begin to release a slimy, gluelike substance that can stick to all kinds of materials (including plastic, stainless steel and other metals, ceramics and glass). Bacteria produce the slime as protection from cleaning chemicals. In your pet fountain, bacteria feed on microscopic particles that are deposited into the water from saliva, as well as food particles that are dropped into the water by a drinking cat or dog. With the right conditions, they multiply rapidly until they can be seen with the naked eye or you can feel them along the surface. Purchase pet drinking fountains for your dog park, campground, animal shelter or kennel.

In nature, animals are instinctively attracted to moving water because they associate it with clean water. Drinkwell® Pet Fountains filter and aerate continuously moving water to keep it much fresher than standing bowl water. In addition, the constant circulation inhibits bacteria growth, keeping the fountain cleaner.One big point against cat drinking fountains in comparison with water bowls is that they’re generally more complicated to clean. Make sure the model you choose is easy to disassemble and dishwasher safe. Otherwise, cleaning will be quite a chore.Cats also prefer wider bowls. If their whiskers touch the edges, it’s probably too small. If you have more than one cat, a bigger fountain will allow them both to drink at the same time. My boy always tries to push my girl away from the water bowl…he’s a meanie! There’s enough room for both to drink but he likes to boss her around for some reason. Luckily he gets bored quickly and she can drink her fill when he’s done.All animals, be it those in the wild or those that we have learned to domesticate, rely on food and water to survive, in pretty much the same way as we humans do. For dogs, we always have H2O bowls for them. For cats, maybe you have already seen your kitty climb up your kitchen sink and try to drink from the running water from your faucet. If this is the case, then you just need to keep your faucet open and expect to see a huge H2O bill by month’s end. A much better and more practical approach is to give your cat one of our 10 best cat water fountains in 2016. We guarantee your kitty will love it.After years of intensive research, The Glacier Point Perfect Pet Fountain™ by Sierra Bioscience has developed what is now the closest version of drinking water for household animals other than the flowing streams of nature.One of the most unusual yet truly appealing water fountain for cats in our list is the Flower Fountain. From the name itself, you already have an idea of what it’s going to be like. Just imagine a simple flowering pot with a lovely 6-petalled flower in the middle with the spaces in between these petals providing the passageway for H2O to drop on the drinking station below. This is the Flower Fountain. It has a truly ingenious design that can also double in usefulness because of the aesthetic qualities that it brings. The good thing about the Flower Fountain is that the hydro flow can actually be controlled up to three different settings so you’ll have different options to help entice your pet feline to drink and to help address choosy drinkers. The Catit product comes with a filtration system that has been designed to soften hard H2O, removing minerals that can make the drink a little more unpleasant. At least, you can be sure that your feline friend will have a really tasty, refreshing, and super clean drink. The Flower Fountain also features a small yet super-efficient pump to help keep the liquid circulating, continuously replenishing its life-giving oxygen content while also inhibiting the growth of microorganisms that can wreak havoc to your pet. With a very flowery design, your guests won’t even think that this is the favorite drinking station of your pet feline.
