My cats and I love these fountains! The autumnal color is rich, gorgeous and fits the leaf theme of the pump hide. The cats can drink from the bowl, the leaf, or from the trickles. Because the leaf sits just above the water, there is more of a trickle than a stream. This it a little quieter than my tall bubble up with a stream. I’m also hoping it is a little less intimidating for my older timid boy. My younger more assertive cat started drinking from it before I finished filling it! This fountain was reduced because the bowl is not perfectly round, but I honestly don’t notice that. Happy repeat customer.
