Why Pay a Fortune When This One Does The Trick?
on May 20, 2010
I have had this fountain for over a month now, and all five of my cats use it, although it took a day or two for them to get used to it. I got so tired of them jumping on the sink wanting me to turn on the faucet so they could have running water that I decided to buy a fountain. They would rarely drink water from a bowl on the floor and I don't like them drinking from the toilet bowl, either!
I looked at a lot of different types of fountains and many of them are so expensive, so I took a chance on this one. The pump is small, but does the trick. It makes less noise than an aquarium pump. It is a bit tricky to figure out where it goes from the enclosed picture on the directions - hint: place it at the back. The one thing I've noticed is that you do have to keep this fountain full. The pump will get noisier as the water level drops. I keep mine on a corner of the kitchen counter and just add a cup or so of water once or twice a day as I pass by. It's easy to clean and so far, I haven't replaced the filter, just rinsed it out and replaced it. Probably time to put in a new filter, though. All in all, I'm very pleased with this little fountain.
