I have one of these. Was great until my cat figured out how to rip it apart! Now we can only use as a normal dish.

$32 for a things from which cat drinks water? I paid half of that to neuter him. What happened to regular small bowl... or better yet find your own water - cat!

From what I read, cats normally prefer running water, as they look to stale water to be unsafe (especially if close to their food);
Cats still have lots of similarity to their "jungle" big counter parties, but the way they eat isn't quite one of them. Most of the water they get from their food (fish, birds, ...) so it's also recommended using methods to stimulate them do drink more water to avoid kidney issues.

If your cat drink plenty of water from a regular bowl or find other ways (like from a faucet, nearby stream...), great! Save yourself those $32 and carry on. Maybe get him a treat instead :) - If not, $32 might actually be a cheap investment.


edit: on a side note - if you get a free shipping code form primecables/123ink/living basics, this one seems very similar, for $24

I bought this a couple years ago. My cats don’t drink from it when the flower is in place.

The filter needs to be replaced every few months as well.

However the little pump inside it is starting to die and is making a decently gnarly sound. Gotta find out how much a replacement would be.

And most cats, from what I read and my vet seemed to confirm, actually die from renal failure before they do of ''old age''. Any ways to get them to drink more should be emphasized :)

I used to have one as well, but one of my cats only drinks water by putting her paw in it, and licking water off her paws. The other cat licks it normally.

I've since stopped giving them water at all for the past few years, I just add water to their food.

I have the catit and this one. My cat and kittens much prefer the later one.

It's not as 'brand named" as catit, but the design and noise level is actually better.

As a few of RFDer already mentioned, using a water fountain will help increase water intake, which is very important for cats. One dose of kidney med costs almost the same as the water fountain, so I wouldn't mind investing in this at all. Also, if your water is already filtered, you don't even need the filter inside.

I bought this one and my cats refused to use it. Also you have to change the filters on this. My cats refuse to drink water so like coriolis I just add it directly to their food

You might still need a filter because the cat will contaminate the water with its saliva. I got the square version and my cat likes it, I buy the filters off ebay for like under $1 each and I replace them and wipe down the dish every 3 weeks or so.

Good price

Good product

Monthly filter change is recommended. I try stretching it to two months, but it's pretty gross by then. Every 6 weeks should be okay. It's easy to clean, the pump sometimes gets noisy, but overall I'm happy with the product. My cat uses it, though as @coriolis mentioned, he often dips (smacks) his paw in and licks, rather than drinking directly from the bowl.

these are not for everyone. just like some people choose to buy $70 Orijen cat food. Some people choose to buy $20 purina or whiskas. especially these health and wellness items are totally optional.
some cats especially male cats dont like to drink water. if crystal develops you are looking to spend $1000 to get it out. you can use a regular bowl thats fine. no one is forcing you to buy a drinking fountain for your cat

Mine often drink from the toilet rather than their water bowls. Would this help?
