My cat loves the Hagen Catit Drinking Fountain. It's great for older cats who prefer drinking out of a sink faucet. If they can drink from this little fountain, it makes it to where your older cat doesn't have to jump up on the sink or you don't have to pick them up and place them up there. Only problem is sometimes when my cat gets hyper she decides to start splashing the water everywhere, ha ha. The fountain is surprisingly quiet except when it gets low in water, which is a nice reminder that you need to refill it. It's obviously a little more work than simply putting a bowl of water on the floor but I think the extra few minutes are worth it. My cat loves drinking out of the sink faucet so I used to have to turn it on for her when she wanted water. She is getting older and not able to jump as well so sometimes she would have difficulty jumping up onto the sink. I would often just pick her up and place her up there. I saw this product in the store and thought it looked like a much better option. So far, I love this and so does my cat. It has not only the fountain part but additional reservoirs if your cat decides they would rather drink from those. Occasionally my cat will get hyper and decides the fountain part needs to be attacked and splashed everywhere. It really doesn't bother me too bad but it may some people if you come home and your floor has water all over. I think kittens may be more prone to playing in the fountain part. I highly suggest this if you have a cat who likes to drink out of the sink. It's not that expensive and isn't that difficult to assemble, clean, or fill. The filters are sometimes a challenge to find but just stock up on them when you do find them. Flavor Selection Not it's purpose.
