I loved the ease in changing the filter, ran almost quiet enough not to irritate me but unfortunately one of my Flerken started reacting to the plastic. So now it is tucked away. I would recommend but keep an eye out for the plastic allergy in your furbabies.
When will these be back in stock ? I need them terribly for my babies
I pump quit working within 2 weeks. When I cleaned it the first time and plugged it back in the pump no longer worked.
My cat wasn’t very good about drinking water until I purchased this water fountain. I now see him drinking water way more often. He hasn’t had an UTI since. It works so well I bought a second one to put where a secondary bowl is used.
Good find. Cats enjoy it very much. Easy to clean.
I've had this fountain for about a year now. I haven't had any issues with it. I clean it weekly. I take out the motor and clean it good. I change the filter every other week unless it looks bad. It is easy to clean and very quiet unless it gets low on water then you hear it gurgle. I make sure it has plenty in it. After a year I'm buying a backup motor just in case. After a year it has worked well for us. I have it in a corner so I have no issues with my 3 trying to knock it over. They love drinking from it. I'm not sure why others have had so many problems with theirs. We like it. I only wish it had a longer cord option because I'd like to put one in the bathroom too but the cord isn't long enough to reach. My cats drink more water since they have a fountain than they did from a bowl.
Motor just stopped working even though there was enough water in it. Didn’t even last a week.
I bought this fountain to replace the flower pot fountain(which worked fine for months until one it day it was suddenly a toy). The top does not latch on to the water bowl, it just rests on it, making it very easy for the cats or anyone to knock it over. I did was another reviewer did and taped the top to the bowl. That only works but if you have a-hole cats like I do who like to stand on the fountain making it top heavy, it falls over, spilling water all over the floor. The cats also figured that if they pull on the electrical cord they can drag the fountain until it tumps over. Basically the water bowl base needs to be made of a heavier material to balance out the weight of the top and there needs to be a latch to secure the top to the base. Overall I would recommend it if you don't mind having to make some adjustments. The fountain is a nice size, not too big, but large enough to provide filtered water to pets for a few days. I have had no problems cleaning the fountain. There is nothing for the cats to claw at to take the fountain apart (they reach the filter and no lips/edges) like some other fountain designs. The cats do drink from it. I created a little cubby hole for the water fountain (and kibble feeder because they knock that over too) and so far that has worked. They cannot stand on the devices meant to provide them with nutrients, brats.
Like the title reads, I have only seen them look at it while walking by. I did a lot of searching and inquiring for answers as to why my 2 cats don’t drink much. So I followed several suggestions and have placed several different containers of water throughout my house. This goes against my water conservation habits which include keeping a five gallon bucket in the kitchen sink, and 2 in my shower, to catch the cold water while waiting for it to become warm/hot water and using it to water plants and trees around my property. To date, I have not witnessed either of them drink from either fountain as I purchased the round and square models. Both are away from their food, 1 approx 6 ft and the other at least twice that. There’s 2 large coffee cups of different shapes and size sitting on a small towel in two spots in the living room, and I even opened the bathroom currently not in use and activated that toilet in hopes they might be willing to drink from there. Care to guess what they drink from? Yep! The bucket in the kitchen sink!! And occasionally from each of the coffee cups in the living room. Those are the only places I’ve seen them drink from. So while I like the fountains and understand the logic behind their design, I can’t in good conscience give them 5 stars.
The cat I bought it for, and I, were not happy with this fountain. I knowingly picked a cheaper, plastic fountain and though there were some lesser reviews, it was still one of the higher rated plastic ones available. Assembly was easy, cleaning might have been too but I couldn't get past the weak water stream, filling a tiny puddle in the bowl before draining back out, drop by drop. My cats are used to fountains, I have two ceramic ones from another company, so it wasn't a moving water issue with the cat. I will say this, it was whisper quiet so might be a good fountain to introduce a bowl drinker to (but not sure faucet drinkers would be interested). Fantastic as they are, Chewy let me donate it and I replaced it with another ceramic fountain.
