Cat Mate Pet Fountain
The Cat Mate Pet Fountain is one pet fountain that offers a lot of options for your cat. There are multiple levels of water for your cat to choose from, as well as a ramp with flowing water, which gives your cat the movement he craves. The isolated pump is ultra quiet, and the water is filtered with a replaceable carbon-polymer filter. No other cat fountain offers this variety of multi level options for drinking. Veterinarians at a Portland veterinary clinic have gone on the record as saying cat hydration is perhaps the single largest issue for cat owners to worry about.
The constantly moving water ensures a high level of oxygenation, helping your cat stay healthy with an always available supply of cool, moving water. The ramp not only gives another look to the water your cat sees, but it also reduces splashing as the water travels from one level to another. The bowls are dishwasher safe and the capacity of the Cat Mate is 2 litres, or 70 ounces.
The base of this unit is 10″ long and 8″ wide. The top bowl is at a height of 6 3/4″, the middle bowl is at 5 1/2″, and the lower bowl is 2 1/2″ off the floor.
The people who have actually purchased this fountain report in at an unusually high level of satisfaction, with almost no negative reviews. That speaks for itself. Users reported some of their favorite features are the large capacity and the unique, three tiered design of the fountain. Debris will inevitably find its way into the bowl and users report it tends to settle in the bottom bowl, leaving the top two bowls with clean, flowing water. This is a great feature if you are not home during the day and want to ensure your cats have clean water.
Other users report the very quiet operation and lack of splashing noise common with other pet fountains. Most people report they clean their cat fountain weekly, or every other week. There are no known reports of a need to clean any more often than that. The filter is usually changed every 2 weeks, but you can experiment to see how long it takes your filter to get dirty. Be sure to order replacement filters so you have them on hand when you need them.
