It is! This is cool!
Keith, the nice man at Thirsty Cat Fountains, asked us if we'd like to try out one of his handmade drinking fountains. We said YES!
Before I was born, mom had tried the plastic drinking fountains that are available in the pet stores and mom said our kitties didn't like them at all. Mom thinks the plastic fountains are quite unattractive and they got clogged up with cat hair too easily. We were very interested in checking out a fountain that is beautiful and won't clog up.
When it arrived, mom filled it up with water and plugged it in. She thought it was awesome that there are seashells that cover up the cords and stuff. At first we were all super afraid of it. I mean, mom took away our regular water bowl and replaced it with this beauty that bubbles. It took a week for me to approach it.
My brother Figaro dived right in. As far as he was concerned it was love at first sight...um, drink. Of course Figaro will jump in the sink and stands out in the pouring rain. He likes water.
Mom loves the sound of it since it's a gentle bubbling sound. The other thing mom loves is that it is handmade right here in the US of A. Mom prefers to buy products locally...she likes to think she is a locavore and wants to support local or homegrown business whenever possible. In addition, this fountain is beautiful handmade ceramic and not plastic like other popular cat fountains.
We do drink out of it now, even though it took a couple of weeks for most of us. The water level goes down WAY faster than our regular bowl.
We suggest giving any new food bowl, water bowl or fountain time for the family to adjust. We were initially afraid of the fountain (except for Figaro). Mom tried move it to various locations around the house to see what would work best. We finally decided that it worked best where our old water bowl was.
