Fountain Friday

Sandy Paws brought us a Drinkwell Platinum Fountain. We luf it! So does Maw. It holds a gallon and 1/4 of water, and has an adjustable flow. Some of us drink from the waterfall, and some of us drink from the pool. Maw lufs it because she doesn't have to fill it 4 times a day like she did with the tiny table fountain that she was using. Also, it has a pre-filter to catch our furs, and then the charcoal filter to catch other stuff. The whole thing is dishwasher safe too. Maw is probably gonna get another one to replace our 10 year old meditation fountain which Paw bought for Maw, but then we started using it as our drinking fountain. It is very hard to clean and Paw is tired of the noise. So there you go.

Pee Ess. No, this is not a new poodin here at the Forty Paws. Maw borrowed this picture from The Cat Connection located here in Dallassss.

I have that EXACT same fountain, too! I love it very much. We used to have an older model Drinkwell, but my Mommie started putting it in the dishwasher and part of it melted. The new one is supposed to be dishwasher safe, but we have not tried that yet, still washing by hand. We got ours a few weeks ago. It is great how much water it holds! I'm glad you like yours, too.

We love love love our fountain! We got ours after our V-E-T said Jack needed a fountain and then gave one of hers to Mommy for us (having your V-E-T also be your Bean's bestest friend means you get even more pampered). Mommy says we are extra pampered cause we get our own filtered water. We are just glad that we no longer have to share water with the doggies. EW! Dog germs are the worst!!

That does look like a very nice fountain. I bet Georgia would like that--she drinks so much now.

We used to have a Drinkwell but so much of Shaggys hair ended up clogging it. Scout also kept playing with the cord.

Know what? Mom wanted to get that fountain fur Bonnie, but instead she got the ofur one where the water runs down a ramp. Bonnie luffed it anyway. Then the pump stopped (the filter is AFTER the motor sucks in the cat hair - stoopid) an Mom boughted Bonnie the Drinkwell.

Bonnie was furry upset an refused to use it! She returned to hauntin the sink, so Mom returned the Drinkwell an found where she could order a new pump. When THAT pump died last year, she boughted us a whole new (same as the old one) fountain. Bonnie didn't object. Enjoy! Does you got any kitties who dip their paws an drink that way?

Oh, we love your fountain! Our mom got us one a few months ago, but it immediately leaked a big pond all over the kitchen floor and she had to take it back. I'm sending her shopping soon to get a GOOD one!

Thank you for wishing us a Happy First Blogiversary!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Oh, we'z gots an older model Drinkwell but we love it! Sadie likes to throw a piece of food in it and watch it bob around in da water. Mom likes it cuz she doesn't hafta wash out a bowl and fill it twice a day! Oh, and once in a while dad will throw an ice cube in and we all sit around it and play wif dat.

Wish me luck in getting one of those. We currently have four little water bowls all over the house. They get cat hair in them. And bugs! And people trip over them and spill them.

That looks like a great fountain. I'm glad it holds so much water for all of you.

Tyler said...

We have that exact same fountain too. But we have a problem with the mineral deposits stopping the water flow. Mom got so mad at it that she put it away. Do you have that problem? Maybe we should use distilled water, but ugh on the thought of lugging water bottles around. Mom uses vinegar in her espresso machine, but that gets heated. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
