The Cat Mate Pet Fountain is one of the most popular drinking  fountains, thanks to its relatively low price and easy-to-use design. It comes with a multi-height water level drinking system and allows your cat to choose the most comfortable area to drink from. The water moves with the help of multiple slides and with a near-silent pump that circulates the fresh water. The sound and the sight of the running water entice your pet to play with the fountain and to drink healthy amount of water every day.

The unit has easy to clean, dishwasher-proof bowls and is fitted with replaceable polymer-carbon filter for added water purification. The filters absorb the chemicals and the contaminants from the tap water and prevent bacteria growth between cleanings. While the Cat Mate Pet Fountain can keep itself clean with the filters, please keep in mind that you will need to clean the unit often and you may need to replace the filters from time to time.

The Cat Mate Pet Fountain made of hard plastic to prevent hard-water buildup between cleanings.  It has a 70 oz. (~2L) water capacity. Refill often and make sure that you don’t use the unit with too low water level because it might produce loud noises and can damage the pump.
