Review: Catit Freash and Clear Small Drinking Fountain


So for Christmas my Mom and my Dad bought me this drinking fountain for the cats. I actually had read only so-so reviews about this particular one so I asked for a different one but I'm very happy with the way it turned out!

Setup
Very easy, a few quick snaps and its done.

Use
Very easy as well! Simply fill it up (by pouring directly into the bowl) until the red indicator reaches the top and plug it in

Pros
  1. A great way to make sure your cat's water is always clean and fresh
  2. Keeps bacteria out
  3. Very quiet (I had previously read that it was supposed to be loud but I can barely hear it right now sitting beside it)
  4. No more re-filling the water bowl every morning
  5. Cat's love the running water
Cons
  1. Mine seems to only pour out of one side, not all the way around. There is a good chance that this is because my apartment leans and not due to the device itself
  2. Filters do need to be changed couple months or so

Over all I give this 4 out of 5 stars!

  2. I have this one for the cats and they seem to love it - it is a ver low trickle over the edge and they love to lick the plastic to get the water - especially Kirzon, who licks plastic anyway. It seems like they are drinking more then they used to with it. I think it really depends on the cat. I did have problems with the one side thing and so I put it directly on carpet which seems to cause it to self-level.

  3. It definatly has helped keeping Hendrix out of the toilet!!

    And thanks Amy I will try the carpet tonight. I'm hoping that Joplin especially will start drinking more water.

  4. That looks like a really cool fountain. I got a kick out of your unlevel floor. I had an apartment like that when I was your age. I had to put an old phone book under one end of aquarium so the water would level out.

    ps, thanks for visiting our blog!

  5. Hahahaha! Love it! A whole phone book lol I'm glad I don't need that, but I did learn the hard way that if I open the fridge door I better get my fingers out of the way FAST.
