Rated 5 out of 5 by kitty cat mate
Runs very quiet. Circulates water. Has a filter, but I use distilled water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CC12 Cats love this
After our first fountain broke (not a Cat Mate model), I purchased this fountain. All comparisons are based on that first fountain, which I was pleased with until it was accidentally broken by a house guest. This model is quite, easy to use, easy to clean, and best of all, my cats love it. As one of my kitties has bladder issues, it was recommended by the vet to buy a fountain. The first fountain worked, but made noise (unfortunately, I rarely saw the cat who needed it drink more than she would from a regular bowl.) The Cat Mate fountain was purchased as a replacement. The major perk: I often see both cats drinking water now, and lots of it. For some reason this fountain has more appeal to them - perhaps because it's so much quieter? Considering this was a cheaper model, I'm very pleased with the purchase and would recommend this product strongly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Darla61 Quite, easy to set up, cat's love it
Very easy to set up, quite, easy to maintain, cat's took to it very quickly. Best price for fountain and filters that I found. I am a cat foster home and currently have eight cats and four can drink from the fountain at one time.
Only problems I have is one of the cat's keeps moving the fountain and spilling the water, but he did that with water bowls too and other cat chewed through the pump power cord in less than two weeks.
Now I'm back to purchase a replacement pump.

Had a cat mate fountain that lasted 2 yrs ( only used reverse osmosis water, took apart and cleaned pump every week ). The pump quit, so we ordered a new one. The new one didn't work, tried the old power supply, and found that the new fountain was shipped with a bad power supply. It is already in use, so I decided to write the company directly to get a new power supply. No response, so I can't recommend this fountain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KS3539 Quiet and Functional
I bought this fountain after much research. I decided on it due to the multiple levels since I have an older cat that needed a raised drinking level as well as the fountain that can filter the water and keep a lot in it. A water bowl just wasn't working well since my older cat drinks a lot having kidney disease. My younger cat likes it as well because it has the fountain part too. It is whisper quiet also. Great buy!

One cat took to it right away. The other took 5 days. Both started drinking with the larger bowl area near the floor. Lately I've noticed the older cat drinking from the topmost area.
The unit is super easy to keep clean. And it's VERY quiet. It's white, approximately 7" H x 10" W x 8.25" D. The only thing one could object to is the large company name written in red across the front. The submersible pump has a slider to change the force of the water. The unit comes in two pieces - the base and the tower.
The cord is over 9' long with a joint about one foot from the unit so that you can easily "unplug" the fountain without removing the transformer from the wall. I was concerned at first about the transformer, which plugs directly into the wall - it does get and stay warm. But it's like a laptop charger that way and it has not gotten hot in the three or so weeks I've had it.
My cats don't tend to knock things over (except wine glasses!) and it seems sturdy enough that it couldn't be knocked over easily. Nevertheless, I have it in the kitchen where it can't soak carpeting if they choose to dabble their feet in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jane53 Great Product!
My Cat Mate fountain just turned a year old last week. It is still going strong with absolutely no problems encountered. Also it is very quiet. My cats love it and it is very low maintenance compared to other fountains that I have had in the past. I wash it with soap and water once a week (you can also put in the dishwasher) and change the filter once a month. I wish everything I owned was this reliable and this easy to maintain. I would recommend this very highly. I have had no problems at all with this product. Very pleased!!
