Water COOLERS and filters?

I've heard of the water filtering systems for cats, but does anyone know if there is one made that actually cools the water too?

I don't think there is. I just finished researching this topic in order to buy a cat drinking fountain for my cats. There are only three brands on the market, and none of them cool the water. The one I bought mentions you can put ice cubes in the reservoir, although the opening is only large enough for the very small-size cubes.

I've tried ice too, but my cat doesn't seem to notice the difference. A girl at work says her cat has to get a bowl of ice water every night or she won't stop bugging them... but she has a lot of stories

you can always add ice to keep the water cool, but as long as the temp inside your house is comfortable the water should be pretty cool as it is.

i give all my animals room temp water. in summer they would probably appreciate chilled water if they are an outdoor cat or it gets really hot in your house, but otherwise room temp would be fine.

I don't think the cat-it has an actual cooling systerm, but their water is always cold even when its hot in our apt.

The cat-it exposes a large surface area of running water to the air. Evaporative cooling occurs, which will make the water temperature lower than the ambient room temperature.

This effect will take place in the other water fountains, too, but too a lesser degree.

I haven't heard of any water cooling systems for cats either, sorry, but I also put ice cubes in the water fountain in the summer to give them cool water.
