Owners will attest: Cats almost always prefer to drink out of a dripping faucet rather than from their water bowl. This inclination isn’t simply quirky behavior; feral by nature, cats are drawn by instinct to the sound of falling water. Thankfully, a vet recognized this and invented the Drinkwell Pet Fountain. Available in four models–Original ($50), Platinum ($70), Big-Dog ($75), and 360 ($65; shown above)–the Drinkwell Pet Fountain provides a free-falling stream of water that continuously filtrates and aerates, keeping it much fresher than a stagnant bowl of water. (Something that’s great for dogs, too, of course.)
Many cats don’t get nearly as much water as they need, so the Drinkwell Pet Fountain is a good investment. Not only will it increase hydration and health, but it will also discourage your cat from jumping on the counter in search of a leaky faucet.
