8 months ago we got 2 new additions to our family (2 adorable little ragdoll kittens). Luckily for us they settled in really well and had no problems taking to their new environment, or food. However, after a couple of days we noticed that they weren’t drinking very much. We put down a fresh bowl of water every morning and evening but they just wouldn’t drink it. Although they get most of their water intake from the wet food they eat, we were getting a little worried that they wouldn’t drink at all.

We browsed through some online help forums and talked to the breeder we got the kittens from and the advice we were given was to try a water fountain. Apparently cats have difficulty seeing still water. That’s what lead us to purchase the Cat Mate Pet Waterfall.

We purchased ours from an online per store for approx £30. You can also get these in pet shops, eBay, Amazon etc. The pack of 2 replacement filters costs £5.99.

The fountain is made of plastic, is white in colour and comes in two parts, a base bowl and top fountain. It also comes with a charcoal filter, pump, adapter plug and a 3 year guarantee (12 months for the pump). It can hold up to 2 litres of water and is suitable for cats and small dogs.

The fountain is really easy to assemble. The filter slots into the base and the pump, which has 3 settings (min, medium and max), clips onto the underside of the top half. The top half then just slots onto the base and then you fill with water. Not only is it very easy to put together but also to take apart and clean. The bowl and top fountain are both dishwasher safe but it’s just as easy to clean by hand. Which is great news considering it’s recommended that you clean it at least once a week to avoid lime scale build up.

There are 3 different levels for the cats to drink from and my kittens absolutely love it. The pump makes a low humming noise, no louder than what a fridge makes, but the kittens seem attracted to it.

The only issue I have with it is that the pump sometimes gets clogged up and can be a bit fiddly to clean. You have to take the pump apart to clean it properly.
