I have a pet name Tommy. He is such a funny and quirky little guy. I saw the Petmate Fresh Flow Cat Fountain online and thought it was really cute so I purchased one for Tommy. For the most part, when I reflect back on it I should have thought it through a bit more. The fountain has a cool shape and design and can easily fit in with the majority of home decor without looking out of place. These fountains actually come in different colors. It is really convenient and handy in some ways too. I didn't have to fill his water bowl as often. For the first few days Tommy was not exactly amused. It kind of seemed like he was scared of it. At the same time, it was kind of funny to watch him as he looked it over. After a couple of days though I finally saw him drinking from it. He seemed to enjoy it immensely. It functioned very well and operated quietly. The only major concern I had actually had nothing to do with the unit. My only warning would be to keep it out of the reach of children. It is as if this fountain is a curious kid magnet. It simply doesn't hold up well to the tinkering of a kid.
