A couple of weeks ago we won a fountain from Layla Morgan at Cat Wisdom 101. It’s a stainless steel Drinkwell 360. Mom’s been wanting to get us a fountain for a very long time but always found them a little pricey. So you can imagine how excited she got when we won this. We honestly didn’t get why she was so overjoyed. It’s not as if it came with any nip.
She followed the directions very carefully but still found it pretty difficult to put together. But once she finished the assembly, filled it with water and plugged it in, she was all “yippee” and “look what I did.”
Three of us have taken to it right away. If you don’t know who The Kittens are, they’re Giulietta and Fiona. They and Lisbeth seem to be using it regularly when they are downstairs. Mom wanted to put it on the catio, but it said it was for indoor use only, so it is in the kitchen.
Those of us using it have our own methods of drinking. Giulietta drinks from one of the waterfalls. Fiona drinks from the bottom bowl. Lisbeth will drink from the top, but her favorite method is what Mom calls, “dip and lick.”
One thing Mom was concerned about was cleaning the fountain. But, she is happy to report that it was quite easy to take apart and wipe down. And though the directions advise to replace the filter every two weeks, our water is double filtered, so she’s hoping she won’t have to do it that often.
Now she’s hoping to get more of us using it. We know it’s only for her benefit. She doesn’t want to clean and fill our numerous water bowls several times a day. Slacker!
We have something else for which to be thankful as well. We’ve been interviewed by the Funny Farmer Felines. That interview will appear in tomorrow’s Mousebreath Magazine. We hope you’ll drop by the site and check it out.
Purrs and Hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
