Fountains are a great way to encourage cats to drink more water. Water is critical to keeping your cat healthy. While cats get moisture from a raw or canned diet, they should still have plenty of fresh water available at all times. Cats as a species don’t have a high thirst drive, and this can lead to chronic low-level dehydration if a cat is fed mostly dry food, which in turn, can lead to urinary tract and kidney problems.
The problem with many inexpensive fountains is that they’re made from plastic. Plastic can harbor bacteria even after regular cleaning. Ceramic fountains are much easier to clean, and safer for your cats. Drinkwell fountains were designed by a veterinarian, and have been available in plastic, stainless steel (with some plastic parts) and partial ceramic. Last year, Drinkwell came out with two models that are 100% ceramic.
The Pagoda Cat Fountain is larger than the previous models. It continuously recirculates 70 ounces of fresh, filtered water. The upper and lower dishes provide two drinking areas for pets, and the patented dual free-falling streams aerate the water for freshness. Like all Drinkwell models, it features replaceable foam filters to catch cat hair and other debris. The fountain’s pump is quiet, and easy to clean.
