Now for a little flashback fun...
Way back in March 2009, Mom Paula purchased a Drinkwell Platinum Fountain for Angel Sweet Praline. Praline was already 13 years old and the vet was recommending the need for more water in her diet. Praline always drank from a regular bowl, but Mom Paula had read a lot about the positive aspects of running water for cats, so she bought a fountain. Many of you will remember that Sweet Praline was known as the Diva of the Cat Blogosphere because of her little tortie catitude.

Mom Paula was so proud that she had been able to purchase a fountain for Sweet Praline with her tax refund, but try as she could, Sweet Praline wouldn't touch it. She would just stand there staring at it and then go drink water out of her Gamecock water bowl. The battle between Mom Paula and Sweet Praline went on for about two weeks. Sweet Praline was having a lot of medical issues at this time, so Mom Paula had a little "raffle" and was able to raise enough funds to pay the vet bills and some other kitty was able to enjoy the fountain. You can read about Sweet Praline and the fountain here.

We're still drinking from water fountains and are very excited to try out a new fountain we received this weekend. Stay tuned for our reaction and a give-away of a wonderful fountain from PetSafe.
