Drinkwell Original Pet Fountain
This is exactly what I needed for my two cats.
My two cats were in the habit of tugging at their water bowl and spilling it everywhere. One of them constantly "begged" for running water in the sink whenever I was in my bathroom. I went on a search and found the pet fountain. It is great. The directions warned that it might take pets some adjusting to get used to it. I could barely get it set up with my cats' natural curiosity driving them crazy! It took them maybe two seconds to take their first drinks. They love it and I feel much better about their water situation.

If you're looking for a fountain system, this is the one.
My cats spend so much time at the sink waiting for someone to turn on the faucet that I thought they would love this item. The fountain is great and works well. My cats just don't find it as appealing as the faucets in the house.

The Fountain works great...
I bought this fountain for a couple of reasons. One, for me, as my eyesight is poor and I could never see the water running in the other manufacturers fountain bowl. My second reason is my cat is attracted by the sound of the cascading stream of water and the bubbles that cause him to bite at the water, in fun.
The filter is also more substantial and the flow is totally adjustable. This is a nice addition to our kitchen due to the ambiance created by the bubbling water...

Fountain works & cat uses it.
Fountain helps keep cat from wanting to drink from sink and other water supplies. So far, operating well.

fountain functions somewhat as described
Our 3 cats have yet to drink from this fountain after 2 weeks. The flow adjustment does not make much difference. Would like more of a trickle to drip adjustment. A friend who has one said to give the cats more time.

Loud, leaks, and my cats don't like it.
I hate this thing! We turned it on once for a little while, the cats didn't like it and it's loud. So we put it away for a while. I just plugged it in this week, and it slowly soaked everything within a foot. I thought the cats were actually drinking the water. No, it was leaking all over my wood floor, under the wall, etc. Save your money, don't buy this.

Takes Getting Used To...
Originally, my dogs were scared to death of the thing. I had another bowl of water down at first, just for that reason. I told them once that was gone, they're just gonna have to get used to the fountain. Well, they did, and now they love it! They don't even drink water outside anymore that they've found in puddles and bowls, they wait until they're inside to drink the deliciousness that is filtered water!

Great features...good value
This is my second Drinkwell fountain. With three cats, it doesn't take long for the water reservoir to become fouled. The Drinkwell does an excellent job of aerating the water and filtering out the particulate matter that inevitably is deposited by the cats after they've finished eating. I highly recommend this product, whether you have one cat or multiple cats. I believe Drinkwell makes a larger unit for dogs. My same review would apply as well.
