This is the second one that I have purchased. Two of my cats especially like this product and were sharing the one I had without conflict; however, it is such a cozy place for them, I had to buy another. Well worth the money.
We have 3 cats but felt a need to buy this for the newest addition. He was constantly drinking from the bathroom faucet or spilling the various water dishes. Needless to say he took to this right away-the other 2 not as quickly but they are using it! No more puddles on the floor!
The pump is not totally silent but it does only make a low hum. The noise from the water splashing down is negligible. Only one so far has figured out he can drink from the top reservoir whereas the other continue to drink from the bottom- if it was a bit bigger it would be easier for them.
The instructions made it seem much more difficult to put together but it was very easy.
I would recommend this product.
I bought 2 of these. One for food and one for water for my kitty who will turn 15 in a few months. I had never heard of whisker fatigue before. However I thought I had noticed she was eating and drinking less lately. When I read about whisker fatigue I thought that might be why. I also thought she might like not having to bend over as far, since she is getting on in years. She really seems to be drinking more water. These don’t hold a lot of water, but I am refilling her dish every morning and every evening. Whereas before with a deeper dish, I left it overnight and could hardly tell she had drunk much at all. This holds maybe a cup of dry food. Highly recommend!
The carrier is well built and easy to assemble.The doors lock securely. I used it to carry a seriously hurt cat to the vet. Having a door at the top is very useful because I was able to observe how the cat was. The carrier is quite spacious for an average sized adult cat. When dismantled it is easy to store.
Very easy to assemble (I have arthritis and fingers don't work well). Assembly instructions simple and easy to follow. Robust and well finished, definitely a quality item and at a very fair price. I have used similar items in the past and this is highly recommended.
