Petmate's Fresh Flow Fountain

Has anyone used this drinking fountain for their cats (or dogs)?

I was thinking of getting one after we've moved and settled in.

I'm curious to know what people think of it.

Bex, we had one for the kitties! They loved it, cats love hearing the running water. I would recommend it! The only thing with ours was something happened to it, one day there was water all over the floor. Brad thinks a little piece broke, but he couldn't ever figure out where it was leaking from. We still have it in our animal bin though, I was asking him recently if maybe he could take another look at it, too!

I use that with my cats as they used to use the constantly dripping bathroom faucet. They now only use the water dish, and absolutely love it.

I saw this one in a local supermarket for $26.99 CDN, and the thing I liked about it is that it filters the water, as well as cycle it through... Our cats always have something floating in their water dish, and yes, they do prefer the bathroom sink tap to their dishes, lol.

Good to know it seems a worthwhile investment .

Depending on your kitties' preferences, you may or may not want to choose the Petmate.

If your cat just wants fresh, oxygenated water, go with the Petmate.

If your cats are obsessed with the faucet and dripping water, definitely get the Drinkwell Pet Fountain. As you will see, it has a stream of water that is more like a faucet dripping. You can control the flow of the water (a strong flow to a trickle) and it has the same filters, etc. as the Petmate.

Another great fountain is the CatIt.

I think it looks better than the Petmate.

Here's Syd enjoying her Drinkwell.

My kitties love the petmate. Both of them got used to it really quick. One of them drinks from the bottom and the other one drinks from where the water flows out. I definately recommend it to anybody.

My babies...

I had one, but the store I bought it at didnt have different sizes, and the one i had was WAY to small for my 2 cats and 1 medium sized dog I was filling it up in the morning, on my lunch break, after work, and before bed!!! So we got rid of it....now that i see there are larger sizes i may have to order the JUMBO!!! lol
My animals loved it...just make sure you get a big enough one!!!

Shoot ... I have the Petmate one and everyone adores it EXCEPT the one cat I have with a faucet obsession. Maybe I need to look into a Drinkwell ... *sigh*
