My boy will only drink from flowing water and absolutely loves his drinking fountain. Before it was a worry that he was only drinking when he and I were in the bathroom at the same time esp given he is prone to bladder stones. The biggest problem with this fountain is the cleaning if you are washing it by hand - there are loads of hard corners and little 'inlets' where dirt and limescale gathers but is difficult to get out even with cotton buds and Drinkwell's cleaning brushes.
Very disappointing. Only had this 6months and the motor packed in. Had to revert back to my old drinkwell, 10 years and still going strong. Thought I’d upgrade to the platinum but I wouldn’t bother if I were you
My vet recommend I get a water fountain for my two Maine coons. They have taken to it very well. This one is well built and easy to use. I would recommend it to anyone looking to get a drinking fountain for their pet. Best thing is I no longer have to leave the bathroom tap dripping!!!
My four cats love drinking from the fountain and my four year old "eternal kitten" plays with the trickling water too. The only problem that I have with it is that my second motor has stopped working after the weekly clean following the instructions. Once again I was finding it a nightmare sourcing a replacement motor but am delighted to discover that VetUK are now stocking them so not only can I give the product 5* but VetUK deserve 10* for making my life so much easier!
An absolute must have! If you can handle the mickey-take that is... I have three cats and hence went for the larger Platinum model, which is 5l and I have to fill it to twice a week! It's really encouraged my cats to drink, and discouraged one in particular from either sitting in the bath and crying for me to run the tap, or dragging the water bowl across the kitchen floor thereby spilling water EVERYWHERE because he can't adequately see the water surface level when still... He did take some convincing, but about a week into it he stopped heading for the bath. It's very quiet, just a quiet trickle of water which you don't really notice and the motor on the platinum is virtually silent. Everybody laughed, my girlfriend included, but she's had to eat her words as it solved the problem - wish I'd had one from the start!
Brilliant - good quality, quiet, the cats took to it after a day or so and are spending virtually no time in the sink looking longingly at the tap !!! VetUK - great delivery - and best price...
