Cat Water Fountains

A constant supply of fresh water is vital for your cat’s health, particularly if they are fed a largely dry food diet. However, it can sometimes be challenging to ensure that your cat is drinking enough water. In the wild, cats typically prefer a running water source, which means bowls may not be very appealing. The researchers at Catit, Drinkwell, and Tech4Pets, among others, have created water fountains to simulate a running water source for your cat. They encourage cats to increase their water intake, which can help aid kidney and digestive health and contribute to their overall wellbeing. At PETstock, we stock a range of products from these brands, and others, so you can choose the one that is best suited to your cat.


Frequently Asked Questions

How often should you change the water in cat fountain?

You should ideally change the water in your cat's fountain daily to maintain freshness, as cats prefer clean, flowing water. The frequency may vary based on the fountain's size, the number of cats using it, your home's temperature, and the cleanliness of your surroundings. Regular cleaning and filter replacement, typically recommended weekly to monthly, also play a crucial role. Monitoring your cat's behavior and using quality water (filtered or bottled, if needed) can help ensure your cat stays hydrated and enjoys the fountain.

How to teach cat to drink from water fountain?

To teach a cat to drink from a water fountain, place the fountain near their usual water bowl and turn it on. Cats are often naturally curious and will investigate. If they don't immediately take to it, be patient, and give them time to get used to it. Gradually reduce access to their regular water source, and they should adapt to the fountain for their hydration needs.

How to clean a cat water fountain?

To clean a cat water fountain, first, unplug and disassemble it. Remove the pump, filter, and all detachable parts. Rinse these components in warm, soapy water and scrub with a brush to remove debris and buildup. Use a vinegar and water solution for more thorough disinfection. Rinse everything well, reassemble the fountain, and refill it with fresh water. Cleaning frequency varies by the fountain but usually ranges from weekly to monthly, following the manufacturer's instructions. We do recommend cleaning your fountain only as directed as per the instructions provided with the unit.
