    great way to attract cats to drink more water

    Have a few cats at home and also babysit for friends and family once a while. If your cat drinks enough water on his/her own, you don't need this. Whereas if your cat doesn't drink enough water, this may save you thousand of dollars from the vet bills you'll need to pay for kidney disease. Some cats are picky and they only want to drink from running water, and you can't (and shouldn't) afford to keep your tap watering flowing 24/7. Most cats that I've had enjoy drinking from the water fountain, the noise is minimal, and it looks nice! I'd recommend it!

    Cats love it

    My cats would always sit in the tub and want water from the tap.. They would hardly drink water from the bowl so i thought maybe they would want something with running water
    So i got this and they love it! They are drinking more water which is great.

    Very good!

    As with any cat product, there are so many different things to consider, a big one of which is what you're cat actually likes. Well, the proof is in the pudding (so to speak) with this flower fountain from Catit, as two out of my three cats have been choosing this over my Drinkwell Platinum. The third seems to prefer the stronger stream of the Drinkwell.

    I actually find there are many negatives to this cat fountain as well as many positive and really, it just comes down to targetting whether it's right for you cat, so let's get started.

    Ease of drinking/Design
    ********************************************
    This fountain is essentially a bucket, with some plastic attachments to redirect the streams. In my opinion it works best, with the most even flow, with all three attachements on to make the whole 'flower' visible. This creates give steady, but small streams of water that trickle downwards. I have to admit, the floral design is pretty cute and definitely has visual appeal!

    My first concern (and the reason my 3rd cat doesn't like it) with this water fountain is that there isn't as whole lot of space between the stream of the water and the bucket, so if you're cat is particularly big or doesn't like getting his face wet, he might struggle to drink from this. I noticed it was easiest for my petite female cat to drink from this without issues.

    The bucket is also very tall, so while this is good for cats who can't or shouldn't bend, it would make it difficult for kittens to drink. It also lacks a 'bowl' style area to drink from, meaning if your cat prefers to drink from the bowl of water (included in most cat fountains) they will be disappointed with this fountain.

    Cleaning and refilling
    ********************************************
    This cat fountain is a dream to clean. It's really easy to take the plastic bits out, wash everything and put it back together. There's nothing complex about it compared to other cat fountains I've used (around four different models) and they really have made the cleaning easy. I love that the pump and cord can be detached completely, so you don't have to worry about getting the plug wet while washing it, which makes everything easier.

    One negative is that it's totally covered, so you really can't tell when you need to refill it and it'll take you a bit of learning curve to recognise the 'burbling' sound that means it needs to be filled. I wish they had some external way to tell, as I have a bad back and can't easily bend to check it often. Refilling is very easy though, no mechanisms or confusing parts required.

    Noise
    ********************************************
    This has to be one of the quietest cat fountains I've ever used. My current fountain (The Drinkwell Platinum) is a noisy thing, as the streams are quite strong. The streams on the Catit flower fountain are more of a trickle and as a result there really isn't much noise to speak it. No buzzing, humming or loud water, it gets an A+ for noise.

    Overall this would make a great fountain for anyone looking to try a cat fountain for the first time. It's very easy to use, not noisy and is also cute! The price point makes it a great option to try out these devices (It's one of the cheapest I've seen), after all, you always have the option to upgrade later. Cat fountains like this are a must for male indoor cats on a dry food diet to prevent urinary crystals and they're also a great option to prevent cats who like to 'splash' in the bowl as they usually want moving water. I'd recommend this for a first-time cat fountain owner, but if you've experienced a more advanced fountain, this doesn't offer anything special.

    SUMMARY
    ********************************************
    Pros
    + Cute design.
    + Three different water flow options.
    + Easy to fill.
    + Easy to clean.
    + Very quiet.
    + High off the ground for cats who shouldn't bend.
    + Pump and cord can be separated for safer cleaning.

    Cons
    - Difficult for bigger cats or cats with wide faces to drink easily from the streams.
    - Streams are pretty weak.
    - No 'bowl' style option for cats who prefer not to drink directly from stream.
    - Bowl is too high for small kittens.
    - No way to see the water level.

    Update for AFTER A YEAR OF USE - Still working great. I've noticed my cats use this one over the Drinkwell Platinum now. So while they didn't prefer it at first, it's now their main fountain. The fountain doesn't get that hard crust over time that some of the metal ones get.
