We are so excited to tell you about the new fountain we received from Thirsty Cat Fountains to review. Many of you will remember that Truffle began developing feline acne on her chin a couple of months ago. We started searching for causes of this and everything we read talked about using plastic dishes. We knew it wasn't our food dishes because we eat out of the china. However, our cat fountain bowl was made of plastic. Mom Paula began searching for possible fountains made of something other than plastic and she discovered the ceramic fountains at Thirsty Cat Fountains. Keith sent us this beautiful blue ceramic fountain with the Cat Cat Tap add-on in addition to the traditional copper spout that comes with the fountain. We'd love to purchase the Two Cat Cat Tap add-on when there are more green papers so both of us can enjoy the water flow at the same time.
Each fountain is 100% food-safe and handmade, which makes each one unique. The pumps are the highest quality aquarium pumps available and have a polarized, two prong plug. We were amazed at how quiet this pump was. The only sound you hear is the water flowing. The copper spouts are the same copper that is used in plumbing of upscale homes and have proven to be a natural anti-microbial. All the glazes used are 100% food-safe. Each fountain comes with the pump, a pump-hide/pre-filter, anti-microbial copper spout, and a ceramic leaf (to cover the cord for visual appeal).
Brulee and the fountain with the cat cat tap add-on
Just as soon as Mom Paula plugged in the fountain, we came running to check it out. We didn't shy away from it at all because all we heard was the water falling. Mom Paula put the traditional copper spout on the fountain first and let us check it out. The traditional copper spout mimics a natural spring and allows the water to "bubble up". In the video below, Truffle investigates first and then Brulee takes over the fountain. As you can tell, she not only drinks from it, she likes to play in it.
Mom Paula then changed to the Cat Cat Tap add-on, which mimics a water fall. We preferred this spout because we love to drink from flowing water.
