This medium sized, glazed in "blue rutile", ceramic pet drinking fountain with a large secured coon lid and a kitty spout, glazed in "temmoku",
filters and aerates continuously moving water to keep it much fresher than standing bowl water.
This fountain's lid is secured with stainless steal pins making it
impossible for even an extremely large and rambunctious cat to dismantle the fountain, and the center water ring makes it difficult to scoop water out. Add to this a pinned cover for the backflow area and you have a dismantle-proof, mess inhibiting cat fountain. Kitty can drink out of the lid's center water ring, or lick the water coming out of the
But this center water ring is even too much of a surface for a
Persian cat. So we created a Persian insert for our coon fountains.
This insert prevents the facial hair from coming in contact with the
water and getting drenched.
The new owner of a fountain with this insert sent us a video showing her cat
drinking from it.
This is what she wrote:
As I suspected, the fountain is VERY popular!
I don’t know if you can tell here, but Parka is well on his way to
getting drenched without the special top piece. He does well with it
in place. Thank you again for taking the trouble to make that
Our fountains have three filters. The first filter is an easy to
clean stainless steel mesh placed in the backflow opening to catch
larger debris like hair and food. The second filter is a foam filter
around the pump, keeping the pump cleaner longer. For the third
filter, you have your choice of housing for the Drinkwell 360 filter
and one cartridge or Ebi’s refillable Bio Filter with one filter
media bag and charcoal fill. The Drinkwell is easier since you just
pop one cartridge out and another in; the Bio Filter is much more
economical since you fill it with course grade aquarium charcoal,
which costs less than $10 a year to refill.
If you’d like a low voltage UV sanitizing lamp in addition, that's possible too.
The 1st filter - the
mesh filter - can be secured if your cats decide to play with it.
The 2nd and 3rd filters are well hidden in the bowl, easy to reach
for you but not your pet - and simple to change.
The fountain is also equipped with a quiet, safe low-voltage pump and a low voltage power
transformer. The pump's inlet valve allows you to adjust the water
speed. Only about the power of 2 to 4 D-cells is going from your electrical outlet to
the fountain, so even if your pet were to chew through the cable,
he/she would not be hurt. A battery option is also available to
power the pump.
Unlike plastic pet fountains that develop
cracks, this handcrafted drinking fountain is made of durable,
nonporous dinnerware-safe glazed stoneware. Clay and glazes are
certified non-toxic and made in the USA. Ceramic resists bacteria,
commonly found on porous plastic surfaces. The fountain has just 4
parts - bowl, lid, filter and pump -, enabling simple, thorough
