5 Reasons why your cat needs a drinking fountain

Cats are notoriously picky drinkers

Some only drink from their human’s glass of water, others refuse to drink from any vessel and meow until you turn on the tap. Have you ever thought about getting your cat a Catit drinking fountain? This is why you should:

1. Most cats don’t drink enough

Did you know that cats don’t have the instinct to drink much? Wild cats get most of the moisture they need from the prey they catch. Since indoor cats can’t catch any mice, birds, or other prey, they should drink a lot of water. Entice your cats to drink more by providing them with a drinking fountain. The Catit Flower Fountain and Catit Mini Flower Fountain have 3 water flow settings to please even the pickiest drinkers.

2. Water is vital for your cat’s health

Staying hydrated is key to prevent kidney and urinary tract diseases. When cats don’t drink enough, the minerals in their urine start to crystallize and form stones, which can have dire consequences. Running water is much more appealing to cats and can prevent health problems as well as a steep vet bill.

3. Cats have trouble seeing the water level in a bowl

Many cat owners use ordinary drinking bowls. They are great, but did you notice how hard it is to spot the water level inside them? Cats have great eyesight but they possess an even keener sense of hearing. This means that the sound of running tap water or water streaming down the petals of the fountain will sure draw your curious cat’s attention!

4. Cats consider standing water to be unsafe

In nature, standing water is an excellent breeding ground for nasty bacteria that could make a cat violently ill. Running water, on the other hand, is much safer which is why many domestic cats still prefer running water.
The Catit Flower Fountain has a Triple Action water-softening filter that removes bacteria. Moreover, there’s no open reservoir in which dirt can accumulate, so your cat can enjoy crisp water at all times.

5. Cats don’t like their whiskers to be touched

A cat’s whiskers are incredibly sensitive and provide your feline with information about the space around her. Some cats become stressed when their whiskers are being touched without a good reason, for example when drinking or eating from a bowl that’s too deep. This condition is known as whisker stress or whisker fatigue. Our Catit drinking fountains are designed to keep your cat’s whiskers untouched for a comfortable, stress-free drinking experience.

P.S. Our fountains are made with the best possible materials and are entirely BPA-free!
