Catit Fountain

We're getting one on Thursday. Does anyone have one?

Sage is so picky about drinking from a bowl, she'd rather drink from the dripping sink, (which we have to turn on to drip for her) so we figured she'd love a fountain.

We have a drinkwell one at work and all the cats love it. But DH said the Catit one is one sale at his work, so we'll be getting that one.

Quote:
The Catit® Drinking Fountain Constantly circulates 3 lt of water through its filter to ensure that the water is pure and fresh. The large surface area ensures that the optimum amount of oxygen is added to the water but consuming less than 4 Watts it is also very economical to run. Encouraging your pet to drink more water helps promote health and well-being. The Catit® Drinking Fountain responds to your pet's need for a continuous supply of water. Re-circulating water with greater exposure to oxygen provides fresh-tasting, cool, filtered water for pets with a multitude of health benefits including the reduction of crystal formation and urinary disease (FUS).


PS - we will not be using the attatchable food bowl since they are slobs...

You won't regret it. I have a cat it water fountain that I ordered from Foster and Smith and my cats love it. They won't drink from just a bowl anymore so their water comes from Cat it water fountain and wet food. It's perfect for cats. It's a quiet flow so it won't scare them and they have the option of either licking the water from the ball or drinking from the bowl. I haven't attached their dry food to the fountain because I don't want their dry food to get wet. So they have their food in the kitchen and their water here in my computer room. We we have to refill that fountain constantly. It's also Rosie's meditation spot. She loves the sound of running water and is very fascinated watching it.

Good! I was worried because I'd never heard of this one before. I've only ever seen the drinkwell types.

So DH mentioned that he was getting a cat it fountina and I was like "huh?"

I looked it up and it looks very interesting. Can't wait to give t to my kitties on thursday (have to wait for a new shipment to come in)

I believe they are more expensive. It has something to do with more oxyen getting into the water, so they are a bit better than the drinkwells. I think DH said they were around $40 something dollars, but they are on sale for $28.00 this week.

In the store that he works at...sorry to be confusing

He works at Pet Supplies Plus down the street. They are on sale there right now.

You can probably check eBay though, there may be some cheaper ones on there.

I've got a Catit Fountain for Denzel and he loves it. I use the attached bowl and he's a bit of a slob too but the food just gets caught in the filter and I clean the fountain once a week and replace with a new filter.

I only had mine for about 3 months and the pump stopped working. I took it back to the store I bought it from and they gave me a brand new one as it was still under warranty. It looked like I might have got a faulty pump.

Its pretty pricey here, mine was about $70 (Australian dollars) and the filters are about $15 for a pack of three. But I still think it was definately worth it.

Foster and Smith sells them for $29.99 plus shipping and handling. And of course you have to call them every so often to reorder filter cartridges for $5.99 each. The cat it mat for the fountain is not included. It's $14.99. For my cats I think it's worth it.

Petsmart sells them too so you could just print out the Foster price and there you go!
