Top Picks at a Glance

Best Cat Water Fountains

1. Best Stainless Steel: Pioneer Big Max Cat Water Fountain

Pioneer Big Max
  • Circulating drinking water is naturally appealing to your pet
  • Replaceable charcoal filter for clean and pure, healthy water
  • Dishwasher Safe. Refer the user guide below for Pum Trouble shooting...

The Pioneer Fountain Big Max is stainless steel at its best. The circulating water starts at the top in a smaller elevated bowl, then flows down in a stream to pool in the larger capacity dish—perfect for multi-cat households, dogs, or picky drinkers that like to have options.

The fully enclosed and quiet pump oxygenates and purifies the water using replaceable charcoal filters and continuously cleans the water as it circulates.

The stainless steel reservoir comes in two sizes: 60 and 128 ounces.

Benefits

  • Stainless Steel makes it easy to clean and is dishwasher-safe
  • Charcoal filters are easy to change
  • Two-size capacity
  • Two tiers for drinking give variety and offer comfort for the height of the animals
  • Flowing water is perfect for lapping

Drawbacks

  • May be too large and bulky for some customers
  • The pump needs to be completely taken apart and cleaned every few months

What We Like

It is ideal for multi-pet households. We like the two-tier idea, and the stainless steel is easy to keep clean.

2. Best Quiet: HoneyGuardian Cat Water Fountain

  • Compact and Patent Design: The Max height is 6.3 inches, the Min...
  • Easy to dissemble and clean: the pet water fountain is easy to...

Flowing water will make a sound, but what if you had the option only to have the water flow when your pet approaches it? That’s just one of the features of the HoneyGuardian Smart Fountain.

This ingenious design works by using three built-in modes:

  • Infrared induction mode will dispense water when the infrared sensor detects your pet within five feet of the fountain.
  • Continue mode: dispenses water on a continual basis
  • Intermittent mode: it circulates water for one hour, then shuts down for 30 minutes.

A simple push of a button changes your fountain from one mode to the next.

Another feature the HoneyGuardian offers is a low-level water reminder. If the water level becomes too low, it automatically shuts itself off, and an LED light will shine as a reminder to add more water.

This unit is also compact and made from food-grade and BPA-free materials.

Benefits

  • Three-modes to operate in
  • Holds just over a ½ gallon of water
  • Easy to clean
  • Uses ultra-low power
  • Suitable for cats and small to medium-size dogs
  • Quiet

Drawbacks

  • Functional over fancy
  • Water does not pour

What We Like

The three-mode system allows for more versatility in function.

It’s quiet because the water does not require a spout to pour from, but it still offers the purification and movement of the water that cats enjoy.

3. Best Ceramic: PetSafe Drinkwell Seascape Cat Water Fountain

Sale
PetSafe Ceramic Pet Water Fountain
  • WATER CAPACITY: 70 oz. water capacity is great for cats and small to...
  • ENCOURAGES DRINKING: Moving water entices your pet to drink more and...
  • FRESH WATER: Includes replaceable carbon water filter that keeps water...

The PetSafe Drinkwell Seascape fountain isn’t just functional; its sleek design will fit into most decors.

It comes with a 70-ounce capacity and two ways to filter the water: a sponge to grab floating debris and a carbon filter to purify the water.

The submersible pump and ball design of the water flow make it super quiet. The entire unit is made from ceramic, making it easier to keep clean, and it is top-of-the-line dishwasher-safe.

Benefits

  • Functional and aesthetically appealing design
  • Effectively cleans the water
  • Ceramic is easy to clean
  • Reasonably priced

Drawbacks

  • Two filters to replace
  • Water pools not pour
  • The pump needs to entirely be taken apart once every month to keep it in optimal working order

What We Like

The overall design of this unit would fit into most decor. The two-part filtration system gives your pet the optimal tasting and smelling drink every time.

4. Best for Persian Cats: iPettie Tritone Ceramic Cat Water Fountain

iPettie Tritone Ceramic Cat Water Fountain
  • Healthy Material and Easy to Clean - Tritone Cat Water Fountain is...
  • Dual Filtration System: Mechanical filtration with a foam filter...
  • Whisper-quiet Operation: The CE certificated IP68 pump runs with 2W...

Thanks to the ceramic materials, the IPETTIE ceramic cat fountain is stylish, quiet, and easy to clean. Let’s take a closer look. 

Benefits

  • Made with high-quality earth-friendly ceramic materials that aren’t toxic to your kitty. 
  • The three free-falling streams not only make it great for multiple cats but also serve another function: adding oxygen to the fresh water. 
  • Two filtration systems ensure that your cat always drinks fresh water. The filter also keeps cat hair from gumming up the whole system. 
  • Carbon and charcoal filters help remove odors and nasty tastes from your cat’s water. 
  • Super quiet and super energy-efficient. 
  • Big enough to hold at least two week’s worth of clean drinking water. 
  • With removable parts, it’s easy to clean.

Drawbacks

  • You need to replace the filters regularly, and they’re fairly pricey. 
  • Some owners complain that the water comes out too quickly for their cats. 
  • It’s a bit heavy compared to traditional water bowls (about 7 pounds).
  • You have to plug it into the wall. There is no battery-operated option.

Recommendation

The plug is really the only thing we don’t like about the IPETTIE. 

We’d prefer a battery-operated option because we don’t really have an outlet close enough to where my cats eat and drink. 

The weight isn’t a major issue if you use the filters, but if you’re opting to skip them to save money, you’ll need to carry the bowl to the sink daily for fresh water. 

Still, overall, we think this is a fantastic cat water fountain and definitely among our favorites.

5. Best for Multiple Cats: Veken Cat Water Fountain

Veken Cat Water Fountain
  • Ultra-quiet & low consumption pump – The Veken pump is ultra-quiet...
  • 2.5L large capacity – It has a water capacity of 2.5 liters (84...
  • BPA free & quality material – Made of quality PP resin, this...

If you don’t mind buying a plastic cat bowl, then let us introduce you to the Veken.

It has many of the same great features as a ceramic or stainless steel bowl, but without the heft.

Benefits

  • Made with BPA-free, non-toxic materials. 
  • Super quiet and low energy consumption. 
  • The pump lasts a fairly long time (between 2.5 and 4 years). 
  • Large capacity means your Persian won’t run out of fresh water anytime soon!
  • There are three different flows, ranging from a gentle fountain to a full-on waterfall.
  • Uses a triple filtration system, including activated carbon, a cotton layer, and ionic filtration.

Drawbacks

  • Again, replacing the filter will be an ongoing charge, and it’s not exactly cheap compared to the overall product price.
  • There is no battery option. 
  • Doesn’t last as long as some of the more durable options. 
  • Customer service problems seem to be a common issue.

Recommendation

Although it’s not one of our all-time favorites, we include it for a couple of reasons. First of all, not everyone wants ceramic or steel.

Second, it’s a budget-friendly option for those who can’t afford to spend more than $50 on a cat water fountain.

Finally, if you look at the cost compared to the reviews, it’s really a good buy, as the vast majority of customers do really love it.

6. Best 360-Degree Design: PetSafe Stainless 360 Cat Water Fountain

PetSafe Stainless 360 Cat Water Fountain
  • 128-OZ CAPACITY: Perfect size for cats, dogs and multiple pet...
  • ENCOURAGE PETS TO DRINK: Filtered, water streams entice pets to drink...
  • CUSTOMIZABLE WATER FLOW: The versatility of this fountain allows you...

Last but not least, if you prefer stainless steel, consider this option.

Benefits

  • Made with high-grade stainless steel construction. 
  • It has a large capacity of 128 oz. 
  • Depending on how you configure it, it includes up to six free-falling streams. 
  • To remove the nasties, use a carbon filter. 
  • A totally customizable stream. Slow it down or speed it up. 
  • The 360-degree design is perfect for multiple pets. 
  • The top-rack dishwasher is safe. 
  • Quiet operation. 
  • Inexpensive filters.

Drawbacks

  • It may be a bit too much for your cat (it’s fairly large compared to others on this list). 
  • The black plastic clips that hold it in place sort of ruin the aesthetics. 
  • It is hard to read the “minimum” and “maximum” markings for the water level. 
  • The basin itself is fairly shallow.
  • Yep, no battery option.

Recommendation

The shallow basin may be an issue for dogs and cats without flat faces.

With that in mind, we think this is a great option! We love that you have near total control over the flow, and stainless steel is more hygienic than other materials.

It’s not the best water fountain for small cats or even the most stylish of the PetSafe Drinkwells, but the pros definitely outweigh the cons.

7. Best Automatic: PETKIT Automatic Cat Water Fountain

PETKIT Automatic Cat Water Fountain
  • 【Reliable EVERSWEET 2S Drinking Fountain】2L/68oz water fountain...
  • 【Monitor Your Pet's Water Intake】EVERSWEET 2S includes a water...
  • 【Smart LED Indicator Light】Embedded Intelligent LED lights can...

The next option is a very modern design, if you ask me. It blends in quite well with the tech devices you could have lying around. 

No one would ever guess it’s a pet fountain! The smart model has reminders when it’s time to change the filter or when it’s low on water. 

What really drew me to this design was the fact that you can fill it with warm water! 

This is great for those of you who live in colder climates, because we all know cats don’t like to be cold.

Benefits

  • Quadruple purification
  • A very quiet fountain
  • Automatic alerts and safety shut-off
  • Low power consumption
  • Works with warm water.

Drawbacks

  • Some customers complain of a dysfunctional motor.

Recommendation

If you want something sleek and simple, this is a good choice. 

While complaints about the motor dying are definitely a red flag, if you keep up with maintenance, you shouldn’t have an issue.

8. Best for Small Cats: Aolnv Lotus Cat Water Fountain

Aolnv Lotus Cat Water Fountain
  • Health Material and Design - Pet Fountain is made of high-quality...
  • Dual filtration (mechanical + chemical) system mechanical filtration...
  • Super silent design: directly connected to domestic AC power supply,...

The Lotus, another ceramic option that’s slightly more budget-friendly than the PetSafe Drinkwell, is as beautiful as it is practical.

Benefits

  • Eco-friendly and made from high-quality, non-toxic natural ceramic. 
  • The circulating water design helps oxygenate the water and keep it fresh. 
  • Dual filters to prevent cat hair from getting into the system and keep odors and nasty tastes out. 
  • Super quiet and low energy consumption. 
  • Hold enough water for two weeks. 
  • Easy to clean.

Drawbacks

  • Again, there is no battery option. Apparently, a battery-operated cat fountain is something you can only find in your dreams. 
  • It is unclear as to what type of filters it uses and how much they cost. 
  • It is unclear as to what brand actually makes it. 

Recommendation

So, I’ll be honest: we included this one because I wanted to give you a beautiful ceramic option that doesn’t cost a fortune. 

Get it and try it, but make sure you decide whether you love it or not within the return window. 

It’s so beautiful that it’s definitely worth a try. Plus, the flow is just right for small kitties.

9. Large Water Capacity: PetSafe Drinkwell Pagoda Cat Water Fountain

PetSafe Drinkwell Pagoda Cat Water Fountain
  • Water Capacity: 70 Oz. Water Capacity Is Great For Cats And Small To...
  • Encourages Drinking: Dual Free Falling Streams Add Oxygen For...
  • Filtered Water: Includes Replaceable Carbon Water Filter That Removes...

We’re a huge fan of the PetSafe line of products, so of course I adore their pagoda-style fountain. 

In fact, after much research, it’s my top pick for the best Persian cat water fountain. 

It’s super stylish in a minimalist way, making it a perfect fit for any decor. 

Plus, the overall style of the water flow ensures that your Persian will never have to stick her face anywhere near the bowl.

Benefits

  • It holds up to 70 oz. of water, making it great for multiple cats as well as your small family dog. 
  • Two streams help oxygenate the water and keep it fresh. 
  • A replaceable carbon filter removes nasty odors and tastes. 
  • For senior cats who do drink right from the bowl, having two levels is a great help!
  • Ceramic is more hygienic overall than plastic and a lot easier to clean. You can even put it in the dishwasher! 
  • It lasts a very long time (one top reviewer updates her review every year, and it’s been over 5 years since she bought it). 
  • Replacement filters are pretty inexpensive, especially compared to others. 

Drawbacks

  • There is only one type of flow, so if it’s too fast for your cat, there isn’t much you can do about it. 
  • There is no battery option. 
  • There is no automatic sensor, so you have to keep an eye on the water. If it gets too low, the pump can burn out. 
  • Some users say it’s kind of noisy. 

Recommendation

PetSafe takes the prize for favorite cat bowl pick for a good reason: it’s designed to last a long time and is cheap to operate compared to others. 

Yes, you’ll probably have to replace those filters monthly, but it’ll only cost you about $3 to do so (each replacement pack has more than one, and neither is over $5). 

What really sells us on it (aside from the beautiful design) is the fact that one reviewer has had hers for 5+ years now. 

So, while it’s the priciest fountain on this list, if it lasts you even 3 years, it’s a better deal than any of the others.

10. Best For Budget: Premier Pet Fountain

With 50 ounces of free, filtered water at their disposal, your pets should never be thirsty.

The Premier Pet Fountain has a submersible pump that circulates the water through two filtration systems: a foam filter to remove dirt and hair and an activated carbon filter to remove bad taste and odor.

The continuously moving water prevents bacterial growth and keeps the water cleaner than a standing bowl ever could.

Plus, your pet will have the option to drink from the free-falling stream or the shallow bowl.

Benefits

  • Holds up to 50 oz. of fresh, filtered water
  • A free-falling stream encourages pets to drink more
  • Made with BPA-free plastic that is top-of-the-shelf dishwasher safe (excluding the pump),
  • Fountain plugs into the wall and uses a low-voltage (12V) system for safety
  • Inexpensive

Drawbacks

  • Design provides function over appearance

What We Like

The two-part filtration system works to pull out both chemicals in the water as well as floating debris. The low price point makes it affordable for everyone.

Everything You Need To Know About Cat Water Fountains

Cat water fountains are one of those things you don’t technically need to raise a happy and healthy kitty, but they sure are a nice touch!

Have you noticed your cat being picky when it comes to his water bowl? Does he prefer the running tap?

If your cat is healthy but exhibits this behavior, you may have a reluctant drinker on your hands.

However, don’t despair; there may be a simple solution.

Below, we’ll go over literally everything you need to know: the types, how and when to use them, and more. We’ll also look at some of our expert picks!

Comparison Of Different Types

The Best Cat Water Fountains and Why You Need One

Knowing your options for the different types of cat water fountains will go a long way towards helping you narrow down your final choice.

By “types,” I mean a few different things. I know, that’s confusing. Let me just keep going, and you’ll see what I mean.

Gravity vs. Automatic

First things first, do you want a fountain that runs on gravity or electricity?

Gravity water fountains aren’t really “fountains” any more than our water tank in our home is a faucet.

Let me explain. Gravity fountains are those that have a bowl on the bottom and a “tank” of water on top.

Here, let me show you a picture; that’s probably easier than me trying to describe things the way I see them in my head!

Basically, as your cat drinks, water comes down from the tank and replenishes the supply in the bowl. They rarely contain a filter, so technically, your cat isn’t getting “fresh” water.

On the other hand, fountains that run on electricity (or batteries), are a lot different.

Some attach to a water supply in your home, while others use multiple filters to constantly clean the water within their chambers.

There are multiple types, but essentially they all work like this: a cat triggers a fountain, filtered water bubbles or flows, a cat drinks the fresh water, and a cat walks away.

Water goes back into the filtering chamber until next time, and the process repeats.

When I talk about cat water fountains, I’m thinking more along the lines of the second option: fountains that are powered in some way. Let’s explore the different types.

Cat-Powered vs. Automatic Motion Sensor Fountains

As you start looking into corded cat water fountains, you’ll find that they fall into two major categories: cat-powered and automatic.

I honestly have no preferences here. Both have their pros and cons.

Cat-powered fountains are great for a busy household where someone or something is always on the move.

On the other hand, motion sensor fountains may be easier to get your cat to use.

Plus, it just feels more natural to me. In the wild, our cats don’t have to trigger a bubbling stream. It’s just there.

If you prefer the second option, check out our top picks for the best automatic cat fountain.

Fountains That Are Ideal for Short-Nosed Cats

Your cat’s face shape is another major factor to consider when choosing the right fountain.

Persians and other cats with flat faces have different needs than kitties with longer “snouts.”

While a regular fountain isn’t necessarily dangerous (unless your cat has breathing problems) for short-nosed kitties, it’s also not exactly ideal.

Think about how you’d feel if your whole face was basically submerged every time you took a drink!

Stainless steel vs. Plastic Fountains

When it comes to the actual drinking fountain, you have even more options to consider.

Do you want something made from ceramic materials? Stainless steel?

Are you okay with just a good BPA-free plastic fountain?

I can’t tell you which to choose, as it depends on your preferences and budget.

Personally, I like stainless steel because it’s easy to keep clean. My favorite is pictured above.

I also love the idea of ceramic, but I’m a klutz, so I worry that I’ll break it.

Still, it beats plastic, in my opinion, because, again, it’s easier to maintain.

That said, plastic isn’t an awful choice, per se. Just make sure it’s BPA-free and what not.

Also, understand that you’ll need to replace them more often (see safety tips below).

Noisy vs. Quiet Water Fountains for Cats

The noise factor is the very last thing I consider when shopping for cat water fountains.

Honestly, I don’t need the quietest fountain in the world.

My cat’s water fountain is far enough from the bedrooms—and even the living room—that the sound doesn’t really bother me.

However, if you live in a small apartment or plan to keep the fountain in your room, try one of these quietest water fountains.

Once you’ve finally settled on the perfect fountain, there are a few more things to consider before setting it up and letting your cat go to town.

What to Look For

Capacity

The larger the capacity, the less time you need to refill and monitor the water levels.

I think this is especially important for those of us who lead busy lives.

Having to worry if my cat has water to drink when I’m out of the house is definitely the last thing I want to think about.

Find a cat fountain with a large capacity and save yourself the trouble!

Depth

The deeper the bowls are the less of a mess your kitty will make and the more water it can hold.

Bending over too far can be uncomfortable for your older arthritic cats as well, so you want to ease up on their joints with a higher bowl.

Water Stream Settings

As I have heard from some other cat parents and experienced myself, if the fountain has a strong stream, it gets my cat right in the face.

This can put him or her off of the fountain altogether. Having a few settings will help you determine which one your cat likes best.

Material

As a water fountain is hopefully something your cat will come to rely on every day, you definitely want to look for one made from safe, BPA-free, non-toxic and hopefully certified material.

This ensures your cat will be safe drinking from the fountain. You also want the material to be hefty so it doesn’t move around easily.

Preferably look for one with a non-skid bottom or one that comes with a non-slip pad.

Last but not least, find one made of durable materials so the fountain lasts for more than a few months.

Filtration System

A proper and effective filtration system is imperative to a good cat fountain.

Not only does it filter through all the debris and any sort of “impurity”, but it also eliminates odors and improves the taste of the water.

Look for at least dual-stage filtration, but go up to quadruple for extra peace of mind.

The filter should be easily replaceable or cleaned, although I prefer reusable ones. They are eco-friendly and save you a few bucks!

Easy to Clean

This is a personal preference, but I feel it’s still a very important factor to consider.

We can all get a bit lazy from time to time (whether we like to admit it or not), and an easy to clean fountain will give us more inclination to clean it more frequently.

Be aware that mold MAY develop if the filter and fountain aren’t cleaned regularly. So for the sake of your feline, remember to clean it at least once a week!

Safety and Other Considerations for Cat Water Fountains

Tired of reading lists of battery-operated cat water fountains that have everything but what they actually promise? Check out our short (but legit) list!

Are cat water fountains safe for a cat that likes water?

The short answer is yes, obviously. Otherwise, we wouldn’t spend so much time finding good ones for you!

We don’t recommend anything that could put your cat in harm’s way here, after all.

Let’s just quickly go over some of the highlights of that piece here and briefly discuss some safety tips.

Set it up in the right place

Choosing the right location is absolutely key to giving your cat a safe and satisfying fountain experience.

Obviously, you’ll want to keep it where your cat usually goes for a drink. For us, that’s the kitchen.

Beyond that, though, you need to consider where you’ll be plugging it in.

Choose a spot close enough to an outlet that you can avoid running dangerous cords all over the place.

At the same time, you want it far enough away so that water doesn’t splash back into the outlet!

Keep up with the cleaning

Regardless of what type of fountain you get, you absolutely must follow the manufacturer’s directions for keeping it clean.

For unfiltered fountains, that means changing the water daily—or at most every other day.

If you go with a filtered option, read the manual to find out how often you need to replace it.

For gravity and filtered fountains, do a complete cleaning once every other week for single-cat households.

If you have multiple cats, go with a weekly cleaning routine.

Even fountains that attach right to your sink need cleaning, so don’t think you can skip this step if you invest in one.

During your weekly (or every other weekly) cleaning, pay attention to the parts to check for damage and look for any frayed wiring.

Replace plastic fountains regularly

One of the reasons I prefer stainless steel over plastic is that the former can last a lifetime.

Plastic, however, breaks down a lot faster. It’s also hard to keep clean.

So, even if you’re meticulous about following cleaning directions, chances are you’ll need to replace it at least once a year (and that’s me being generous).

As I said, these are the highlights regarding cat water fountain safety.

Check out that post I shared with you above for more in-depth information. It was written by a former vet tech.

That about covers everything you need to know about cat water fountains!

Like I said, they’re not a vital purchase, but they definitely make life a little easier.

How Much Water Does My Cat Need Each Day?

cat drinking water from water fountain

If you are concerned that your feline friend isn’t drinking enough water, you may be worried about nothing.

Daily water intake of your pet will depend on many factors. The size of your cat, the time of year, and your feline’s diet will all determine how much water your cat needs.

  • For example, large cats like the Maine Coon will need more.
  • Likewise, if it’s hot out, you’ll want to make sure Kitty is drinking more.
  • If you feed your cat a dry diet, he will need more water to help digest the food; kibble only contains about 10% moisture, whereas canned food is around 80% water.

According to Preventive Vet, a healthy cat (in normal circumstances) will require between 3.5 and 4.5 ounces of fresh water per 5 pounds of body weight each day.

Signs of Dehydration in Cats

If you are concerned your pet may be experiencing dehydration, watch for these signs and symptoms

Loss of Appetite

When a cat doesn’t eat, it could be a sign of trouble. Dehydration may not be the cause, but it will be a side effect if it goes on for too long.

If your cat hasn’t eaten for 24 hours, get her to your veterinarian for a thorough checkup.

Loose Skin

Perform the “skin tent test” to check for dehydration; just pull up on your cat’s skin around its shoulders and watch how fast it settles.

Skin that springs back into place is normal, while slow-moving skin could be lacking adequate water intake.

Sticky Gums

Dry, tacky gums could be a sign of dehydration.

Lethargy or Depression

Is your cat extra sleepy or lazy? Does he lack the energy to play as usual? These could be signs of a lack of water.

Vomiting or Diarrhea

If your cat has experienced excessive vomiting or diarrhea, he could also be in danger of dehydration.

Sunken Eyes

Dull and sunken eyes can be a sign of dehydration.

Panting

Unlike dogs, cats don’t usually pant, but they might if they are overheated, which can go along with a case of dehydration.

Not urinating as often

A good reason to scoop your litter box on a daily basis is so you can monitor your cat’s output. Too little urine could be a sign of dehydration and other urinary tract conditions.

The next time you have your cat taken to the vet, ask him or her to show you how to take your pet’s pulse rate. Having this skill can help you determine whether Kitty’s heart is racing or is too slow—it could save her life!

Check out this video for a visual on how to do the skin tent test and test for other signs of dehydration in cats.

If your cat is exhibiting any of these signs, encourage her to drink more water. If Kitty refuses, then be sure to get her to the vet for treatment.

Benefits of a Cat Water Fountain

For decades, pet parents have selected a bowl (most likely based on looks or convenience), filled it with tap water, and placed it on the floor for Kitty to lap at.

The problem with this method is that the water quickly becomes stale, warm, and subject to all manner of debris. If your cat is like mine, the minute a “floaty” shows up in the dish, he’s done!

A standing bowl is also not the best method for the cat’s natural drinking “stance.”

According to research, and observation, cats use the tip of their tongues, along with inertia (gravity’s opposite), to get the water they need from source to mouth.

They do this by touching the water and quickly drawing their tongue back up to their mouth. Watch your feline the next time he’s at the water bowl.

So, it only makes sense that flowing water would be more appealing to the physiological makeup of the feline body.

Another benefit of a cat water fountain is that most use filters to remove debris, hair, and (more importantly) chemicals found in tap water.

This keeps the water fresh and appealing to those finicky felines. Lastly, cat water fountains continuously move the water in the bowl.

This not only aerates the liquid but also makes it easier for animals to judge the water level, which most seem to appreciate.

Wrap-Up

Okay, so we covered pretty much everything you need to know about the what, when, where, and why.

Now let’s take a look at a few of our favorite cat water fountains. Think of this as the grand finale to this guide!
