First, it’s super clean ALL the time. For those other fountains with the open reservoir, we noticed that cat hair or small bugs tend to get trapped around the edge around the water line. This means we typically have to empty the fountain and clean the base on a daily basis. The stainless steel top of this fountain though saved us from the hassle, and stayed clean for at least a week (there’s only minor water stains on the edge after a week of use).
Second, much like the other fountains from wonder creature, this one is super quiet. I only tend to hear water flowing sound (and it’s by no means an unpleasant sound) when there’s no other activities around, and when I happen to sit within 1 meter next to the fountain.
Third, our cats really appreciated the blue light from the lotus fountain. But it’s only in the stainless steel fountain that the lighting actually serves a meaningful purpose! The light changes colour when there’s not enough water in the reservoir, and at the same time the motor stops working to prevent burning out. This new safety function is really reassuring when we leave our cats alone at home when we go on trips!
Bonus, the package also comes with a cute silicone mat to keep the floor dry, brushes for cleaning, as well as additional filters!
Don’t hesitate about getting this fountain if you’re trying to keep your cats happy and healthy!
