Best Water Fountains for Cats
For animals that have a reputation of hating water, cats sure are obsessed with it. Just think about it. How many times have you found your pampered feline trying to drink water from the faucet? Or maybe your kitty has an unhealthy obsession with the toilet bowl? Or is it stalking you while you try to take a shower that gave it away? Either way, there’s no denying that the relationship cats have with water is a complex one, and that’s especially true when it comes to drinking it.
Some cats will turn up their nose to any drinking water that doesn’t come straight from the tap, others avoid plastic or steel bowls in favor of ceramic ones (or any other combination of likes and dislikes), and some felines seem disinterested in drinking water whichever way you serve it to them. There are many factors that could influence your pet’s relationship with water, from instinctual to behavioral. However, what remains true for most is that running, fresh water is the coveted ideal and often preferred over any other, and that’s exactly what water fountains for cats offer. A hassle-free, tidy, and practical way to provide fresh water for your feline, water fountains for cats can make even the finickiest of felines happy to gulp- and this list includes the best ones you can get on the market.
