I love this fountain. Over the last 10 or so years, I have purchased 3 or 4 other types of cat fountains. I wish I had discovered this one first. In addition to being much, much easier to clean than any others, it’s lovely. Above all, my cats don’t feel compelled to attack it (which for some reason they did with the last one and typically at 3 am, waking everyone up). I was hesitant the buy this because of the price, but it is well worth it. I wish I hadn’t wasted money on any others.
