Just like you, cats need hydration, especially during this hot summer. Before cats were domesticated they would get much of their needed water from prey, such as mice. But today's dry cat food contains only 6%-10% moisture, way less than they need. Serving your cat wet food is a big help, and that provides almost 50% of the water they need. But that's still not enough. Vets say that a lack of access to clean drinking water an lead to:
- Heat Stroke
- Kidney disease
Many pet parents use a water bowl for their cats, but the water soon become unappetizing as it warms to room temperature and gets full of dirt and hair.
Cats are fascinating by running water and are much more likely to make this fountain part of their daily routine. It not only serves a fresh supply of running water but recirculates the water through several layers of filters to clean it and keep it fresh for your pet.
There are 3 different types of water flow so your cat can pick out his favorite:
- Flower waterfall
- Flower bubble
- Gentle fountain
Easy to see color coded lights on the side show you whether there is adequate water or whether it needs to be refilled.
