Petco Automatic Cat Water Fountain
(5 out of 5)
The PETCO Automatic Cat Water Fountain will inspire you to discard old-fashioned water bowls.
January 14, 2011 1:29 pm | By Zootoo Editor CynthiaLo
For several years now, I've coveted an automated drinking fountain for my six cats. Actually, it's really for one of my cats, Snowbutt, who unlike the other five, insists on lapping fresh water from a dripping faucet. When I say “insists,” I mean she stages sit-ins, bed-ins and loud daily protests in the bathroom sink till she is granted this right. Recently, I decided this Petco fountain's affordable price was worth the gamble.
I placed the fountain on the bathroom floor between the sink and toilet, and hoped no one would mistake it for a cute mod urinal. It takes up about the same amount of space as an ordinary water dish. Unfortunately, it's loud when operating on a bare tile floor. I placed mine on a bath mat to muffle the sound.
Assembling the fountain couldn’t have been easier for me, because my boyfriend actually did it. But seriously, I have since taken it apart several times to clean it and I can attest to its simple, sturdy construction. With six cats lapping away, I have to add water a few times a day to keep the fountain flowing correctly.
Snowbutt has stopped sleeping in the sink, but sometimes still cries for water from the sink faucet. Initially, I worried that she would eventually shun the fountain. One day I unplugged and emptied it. Later that day she came upon the out of order fountain and pitched a fit, assuring me she is indeed in love with it.
All of my cats were equally apprehensive when the new watering hole went into effect, but soon the vote was unanimous— it's time to discard the stagnant bowls and embrace the future.
Pros: Simple to assemble and use; affordable; appealing to cats.
Cons: Noisy; although a towel or mat underneath can help.

My cat has water all day, thank you
posted 2 years ago
I got this for my cat because although my dog and my cat get along just fine, my dog tends to drink all the water and spill and make a mess while I'm gone. I'm only gone for work but still. Well I got this to give it a try and my dog is sort of scared of it. He just won't go anywhere near it. The cat on the other hand loves it just like it promises. She is so interested in it and because the dog doesn't like it I now know the cat has water all day long. Before I got this I'd come home and see the empty water bowls and feel bad and wonder how long the cat had to go without. Now I don't have to worry anymore, the cat always has water. It is kind of cool how it works. I recommend this product.
Pros: Helps you not to worry
Cons: I don't have a con

Many of my birds have survived thanks to this antibiotic. Why I can't find it in a store is beyond me. This is a miracle tonic that at only 2.99 can save all types of birds. It's almost impossible to … more ›
