There were always water issues and water bowl possession squabbles among my two cats, one a rescue who came in the cat door to eat and drink. Territorial fights over water bowls kept us filling, cleaning, moving, etc. two different water bowls around, a constant chore. When my indoor cat began drinking from the toilet, I had to find a solution. Since I have had my TC fountain, there are no problems. Both are happy and take turns drinking the fresh, oxygenated water. The male outdoor cat drinks a lot of water, and the fountain insures there is plenty of fresh water always available. Well worth the price for the convenience and usability. The aquarium pump is a fantastic idea. Thank you for this beautiful functional product! (I wish the electric cord was white or clear, though.)
Note from Thirstycats – we too would like white or clear cords but pumps only come with black cords and we cannot replace them. Wish we could.
