Rated 5 out of 5 by Cataholic Excellent, simple fountain design
FINALLY, there's a fountain that's easy to keep clean and that my cats love! I've tried various other fountains in the past and returned them all because of poor water circulation and/or my cats refusing to drink from them. The Catit Design Senses Water Fountain is perfect in every way: easy to set up, easy to refill, easy to clean... and my cats immediately loved it! Soon after the fountain was first set up, my male cat was fleeing from the dreaded vacuum cleaner - and stopped to drink from the Catit fountain before continuing his dramatic run! Now that's cat appeal! Kudos to Catit for designing a winner.
FYI, I also read reviews of the Catit Design Senses Water Fountain on other websites before deciding to purchase and try this fountain. One common complaint I saw elsewhere was that the fountain could be easily disassembled by playful and/or curious cats because the top piece was free-floating. However, these fountains had a green interior, not a blue interior like the one offered here at Chewy.com. Catit apparently paid attention to the feedback and improved the fountain design with this blue model because that the top piece nicely clicks into place. So, stick with this newer blue model at Chewy.com and curious cat deconstruction won't be an issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FloridaFelineFun QUIET, EASY CLEAN FOUNTAIN
Been skeptical for a long time about buying our six-cat household a 'water station'. However, when two of our male cats had a serious urine crystal blockage with 3 days of each other ($700.00 in emergency vet bills), we figured this contraption would be a small price to pay to get our furballs drinking more water.
We did a lot of research to find the right fountain, noting on other sites that a lot of folks did not like the cleaning routine of much more expensive fountains. This Catit design, though, looked perfect. And with simple, no-hassle returns to Chewy, we decided to give it a try.
Bottom line, after a couple of days of running it alongside their regular water dish (we also added another water dish in the bathroom) five of the six cats drink freely from it and seem to enjoy it and STAY at the fountain much longer and drinking much more than before. (Yes, we do observe our felines a lot). We have now eliminated their regular water dish altogether. The old curmudgeon cat still won't drink out of it...maybe he'll come around in time. He uses the bathroom water dish instead. Five out of six isn't bad...there's always one....you know what I mean, we all have the one that is 'special'. ;-)
This fountain is SUPER QUIET!! It is SUPER EASY to clean, which we thoroughly do once a week. The filter seems to do an excellent job of catching cat hair. For the price you are getting a sturdy, well thought out drinking station for your felines. Give it a few days for them to get used to it and keep it full to the fill line or it will have a louder sound as the water will have to 'drip' into the bowl. However, if you like that sound in your home then go for it. Otherwise...did I mention it's SUPER QUIET. We love it and so does our clowder...except for that one....

I have this model and the one offered previously. Honestly they are about the same. I have noticed no big difference with the new filter. That said I still love the products. I have had just about every type on the market. These are by far the easiest to clean and maintain. My cats and dogs are use them with no problem. I would recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ohn0o0itsalexia great for the price
A lot of fountains at this price have barely ANY water storage. This fountain can contain a ton of water at a time which makes refilling it less of a bother. Other fountains for the same price you would have to refill every day but you can let this one go for like a week.
It's a little hard to tell when you have to refill it and its not clear exactly what the "fill line" indicates (I think you're not supposed to go over?) Your only clue is the trickling noise of how far the gap is between the water pouring from the top to the storage.
Also, my cat was pretty warey of this fountain at first. I let him go a couple days with it being his only source of water to give him initiative but I could see how other cats would be more stubborn or fearful and might get pretty dehydrated before they give it a try. I think my cat would have much preferred one of the fountains that pour in a stream into the bowl but this one is easier for me.
All in all it has been a good buy for me so far. I just hope cleaning it out wont be too much trouble.

It took two weeks of both cats staring at this new "thing" in their food space and finally just a couple of days ago, one of the boys finally drank from it; and then his brother followed suit. In the meantime, they had had access to other sources of water. So far, I am very satisfied with it; it's small enough to fit in a NYC apartment space, whereas the other manufacturers' pet fountains were simply too big.

I have several cats and they love this..The bubbling is enticing. It is easy to clean and refill. solved a long standing problem-including sharing the sink while I try to brush my teeth.

This is an odd fountain by usual fountain standards, but both my kittens took to it immediately (after some paws in the water and natural cat curiosity was satisfied). It's great to have so much water available and the movement keeps them going back for more. This model is very quiet which was not the case with our previous brand/unit. It's a compact size and cleaning is easy - no special brushes and kits to buy due to the simplicity of the design. Good price, great product (don't forget to order extra filters!)
