Cat It Fresh and Clear Small Drinking Fountain – Cat It 50053
The Cat It Fresh And Clear Small Drinking Fountain is a real favorite of cats. The dome feature so famous on Hagen’s Catit fountains is a quiet, neat way for your cats to drink water. The simple design has a reservoir of water covered by a plastic dome. The water is pumped up through the hole in the top of the dome, and then flows down the sides of the globe and back into the reservoir below. Cats love licking the water off the globe as it falls, giving them the flowing and interesting water source they crave. The fountain is circular, so your cats can approach and drink on any side or from multiple sides at the same time if you have more than one cat.
There is one thing to keep in mind with this fountain. It should not be used by people who go out of town and want a fountain that will always have water available. The reason for this is if the power goes off the water falls back into the reservoir and stops being pumped up through the dome. Since the dome covers the reservoir, there is no exposed water for your cat to drink. Most other fountains have an exposed bowl, so if you are someone who goes out of town and leaves your cats, you will want to keep this in mind.
Customers who purchased the Catit Fresh And Clear Fountain report the design of the dome makes this much neater than other pet fountains. The reason this is so is due to the rim that runs around the drinking area. Since the water if flowing down the dome, it does not ever get air borne so there is no splashing. As your cat drinks, he is drinking inside the rim so is very unlikely to slash water outside the bowl area.
Other features pointed out by the people who purchased this fountain are the extremely quiet pump and the easy set up of the unit. Thi fountain has a diameter of 8 1/2 inches and a height of 6 inches. The replaceable filter is easy to change, and the fountain should go a couple of weeks between changes.
