It holds a good amount of water, is beautiful and my cats love it! I have never seen them drink so much water. We had a plastic fountain before, but it was ugly, yellowing and the cats drank more water than with just a bowl on the floor. It was also hard to clean. Now they drink all the time! This is my second fountain, the cats drink so much I figured I would get one more to keep up with them. I couldn’t be happier, this is so easy and quick to clean.
