I highly recommande this product for the baby pets! Most important thing is that this amazing product makes my cat more healthy! He used to have uterus problems sometimes, and now it's gone, because he drinks much more and the water is also more clean. Water is so important to the health of pets, so this is a great investment with priceless return! Only thing is that I dont know how to clean the pmup or how often I should change the pump and filter... would be great to learn abnout this! :) :)
We used a bowl for our cat's water but was going to be away overnight and wanted him to be able to have plenty of water. The pump is quiet and we noticed our cat drinks more than he did when using the bowl so haven't gone back.
All three of my cats have loved this fountain from the word go. Prior to this, my 17yr old female would only ever drink from a running tap, so this is amazing. They each vary their drinking position and have even been known to all take a drink at the same time. Water for my cats is cleaner, cooler and more oxygenated; what more could a loving owner want?
This is a brilliant idea- both of mine drink a lot , usually out of a running tap. One of my boys is diabetic and it’s great to satisfy his permenant thirst when I’m out during the day. I don’t use the filter, choosing to wash the unit through every couple of days. Recommend for any cat.
Arrived on time, set up was easy, plugs all fitted fine. Nice and quiet, cats both took to it instantly and I've done away with the spilling bowls I had for them all over the house! Love this product, cats love it and water stays inside the well, can't complain about that :)
I have 17 indoor cats and a few of them live to drink from a running tap, so I thought i’d try a water fountain. I live the fact this one has 3 levels to drink from. Extremely easy to set up and very quiet too. My cats were hesitant at first but then they were queueing up to use it. Definately going to buy a 2nd one.
Excellent concept and started off really well. Cats drank far more and stopped drinking from random places that happened to have dripping water! Speed of the floe can be changed and that does of course impact the noise but its fairly quiet. HOWEVER, after 14 months it stopped working. I cleaned the pump as instructed, no change, so ordered a new pump (which came with a new plug as well for some reason) but still doesnt work. Shame but would seem this doesnt have along shelf life
My cat loved this product brought because my cat did not drink enough now she drinks plenty thanks to cat mate
Very quiet and all of my cats from ages 12 years to 7months are drinking water happily.
Still the best fountain I have found, my cats both drink so much more water now and these really help keep the motor clear of debris
We have a Persian rescue cat, he loves moving water. He took to this straight away. Great that there are 3 different "bowls" of water. He likes to drink from the flowing water, I have seen that with a friend's cat - she had to leave the bath tap running for him.... It is very quiet, easy to put together and to clean. Highly recommended.
This is amazing the best thing since sliced bread. I have s few cats they all love it. It's in constant use. Easy to clean and assemble. This is a MUST hav
Good product, like it very much. The only issue was the UK conversion plug supplied was the wrong size?? I had to buy another off Amazon. You'd think someone would check this.
I bought this fountain 2 years ago and my cats took to it immediately. The gently flowing water and silent pump mean that this fountain doesn't bubble noisily, nor do you have an annoying hum, or leakage (as you get with some other fountains). The fountain is easy to clean and even the pump can be mostly dismantled, allowing you to clean the impeller too. I live in a very hard water area, so I get scale build up, but I clean this off with lemon juice and a scourer. The filter in this fountain also means that there is much less scum and impurities in my cat's water than would be there without it. My cats drink far more water than they ever did with their old water bowls and I would never consider using any other bowl or fountain again!
My cat took to this drinking fountain like a Maine Coon to water. He loves it. Being a young and inquisitive Maine Coon, the second it was up and running he was in there with his paws investigating. He drinks from it several time a day. I top it up with filtered water, to hopefully save on filter costs. The pump is virtually silent. The plug adapter is a bit loose, but as long as you don't touch it it stays plugged in just fine, nothing a bit of electrical tape can't sort. I wanted a drinking fountain to encourge my kitten to drink lots, my last cat sadly passed away due to kidney failure, so I know how important it is to ensure your cat is hidrated. This fountain is certainly doing the trick
having purchased other pet fountains in the past,we decided to change styles as we thought the other dome type started to get noisy for no reason that we could find,so after looking at others ,decided to give the cat mate a go,and can honestly say its so quiet,its nearly silent,brilliant.
It took my kitten around 3 weeks to realise that she's supposed to drink from this rather than play in the water. She still plays in the water, flicking it everywhere and trying to 'dig' it out lol. But she loves to drink from it too, she won't go back to her water bowl anymore :) I have put a rubber mat underneath it to stop the water going everywhere. This also stops the slight noise (not really that noticeable) from the motor. It is really easy to clean too, I wash it in the sink.
I tried so many water fountain I can't even keep track. This one is just soooo quiet, finally....It makes a massive difference and the cats used it straight away. Top choice.
This has worked out great. It's really quiet and doesn't splash. I don't find it hard to clean either. The top lifts off easily and the filter and pump are underneath. Our lovely Lily had no problem with it. She's 3 legged so uses the lower bowl and not the top ones.
Took a week or so to spot one of my cats using the fountain - but now it's in constant use ! The fountain is quiet and has good water movement. Easy to clean & reassemble. Filters need to be changed frequently. Considering purchasing a new motor in the near future as it is starting to slow slightly. Would definately buy this model & brand again.
Took a few days for all the animals to adjust, but our cats and dogs now all use it. This is better than a previous design we've tried because there is an actual reservoir of water that the animals can access at the bottom, like a bowl. This makes it suitable for small dogs as well as cats (and our medium size dog uses it too). Because our dogs use it, we've had to stand it on a try as they splash a lot of water around it.
Bought this to ensure my cat who's nearly 19 with CKD, drinks enough. After three days of disdain, he's now drinking out of it all three levels. It is definitely silent. Easy to use and clean and great value at this price
I have a Maine coon kitten ,and will soon be adding another ,plus having two older cats,and was having to put water bowls all over my home,so was looking for an alternative, I purchased this water fountain,my maine coon took to it straight away ,but it took a while for my other two to adapt to it, but few months later they love it,i always see them drinking from it,especially the flowing down part of it,well design ,ideally i clean it out every day, but it is worth the effort,to see them enjoy water so much.
We have had a Cat Mate for about 5 years,we tried all other cat fountains, but not as good as the cat mate, the cats enjoy the water, always having a drink out of the Cat Mate,I think we have had about 4 motors & sponge which goes with it. So very pleased.
Also, you can wash it in the Diahwasher if you have one. So good for the Money,as, I said earlier its about 5 years old,and still working well.
Since I'll be going away for a weekend soon, I wanted to make sure my cat had sufficient fresh water. The cat mate fountain arrived quickly, was easy to set up and she was drinking from it in the first ten minutes. Since it is plastic, I expect to be cleaning it every week, but that seems basic hygiene anyway. It's really quiet on the intermediate flow level, so could be even quieter if I wanted.
I have seen reviews stating the pump needed replacing after a short time - Take the bits off the pump and clean with a pipe cleaner, it will last much longer. All my cats love this! It is very quiet.. Only noise is when it needs topping up/cleaning.
Both our cats drink from it, even the nervous one, when they never drank from normal cat bowls. They still drink from dirty water filled buckets in the garden when outside. I think we had to buy a replacement pump after the first 2 years of use, now the 2nd pump has packed in another 2 years later. So we now have filters, but not decided if we will replace it. It came with pin plug that pushes into in a badly fitting uk adapter. Not sure if this is because it is an old model?
The first pump was faulty, but Zooplus quickly sent out a replacement. The cats took to it straightaway, so no problem there. Having so much surface water exposed was not great, as I was always topping it up. On the plus side I could refill the filters myself, and such a good idea having a join in the lead, so you're not dragging the plug around with you. After 18 months both cats started being sick after drinking from it, so alas, it had to go.
Very quiet and even my cat who only used to drink from a running tap will drink from it. I wish I had gotten one years ago!
does the job without breaking the bank. People that complains for rattling noise: ADD MORE WATER! it happens if air gets into the pump. Otherwise there is a quiet humming noise that if you take it as white noise makes you sleep better!! :) downside for me is running costs: the filters cost too much, are bad for landfills and don't really work well. there are always residuals of food at the bottom. Light and easy to clean although i am not a fan of its plastic material
This is one of the best water 'fountains' and my cats use it well, which is important for their health being fed a dry diet. I'm also in a hard water area,and limestone is a real problem which these filters keep in check.
We are very satisfied with this fountain and the possibility given by these filters to offer our cats quality water. Without them, the water would be dirty (hair, bacteria) and not as good to drink.
my cat wasn't drinking water from bowl, i had to leave the tap open, that was not economical. i had one different model but it was leaking then the pump break and i replace it with the pet mate model. this one do not leak, if you change the water regularly it is better, i have seen little bug getting stuck in, so check is needed. but it is a very good fountain my cat adores it drinks for all corners from top to bottom of it. and all parts are available, pump and filter fantastic.
Utterly essential. Would never be without one again. So much better than stagnant water that gets hairy/dirty/ignored. Sure my cats haven't learnt to drink out the top but they do at least drink indoors now.
I was looking for a quiet water fountain for our upstairs bathroom for our 3 cats. We have a Drinkwell 360 in the kitchen which is very good, but was unsuitable for upstairs due to the water noise and the length of cable being too short. I decided upon the Cat Mate after looking at various options and am happy with it so far. For all those who live in hard water areas, I would highly recommend using bottled mineral water. If you do not, you will get limescale build-up which will attract bacteria and scrubbing to remove it will damage the plastic. This is the case for any water fountain you may buy in hard water areas. I purchase water from Lidl's for 25p for a 2l bottle and this avoids any problem with limescale and cleaning. With regards to the Cat Mate, the water flows quietly into each drinking area. If you want dripping water then this is not for you. I find it very quiet. I occasionally notice a buzzing sound which is when it has fallen below the minimum level but once topped up this stops. I am very happy with it and my cats drink very happily from this as well as the Drinkwell 360. As it comes with a two pin plug it fits straight into the shaver socket in my bathroom. It also had a longer lead than the Drinkwell 360 which would not reach and was a selling point for me.
Recently purchased this fountain for my two indoor kitties,one who gets occasional bouts of cystitis..this is night three,its on my bedroom dresser along with the two kitties who have taken so well to their new fountain,happily drinking from all levels,lovely cool water too.i had the older cat-it(blue),but was quite anxious about how hot the plug got.That said i had it plugged in nearly 24/7 for the past 12months,things we do for the love of our cats...thumbs up so far so good for this great product,only a bare hum from it too.
We had another cat water fountain [different make] for about 2yrs which turned out to be very noisy and difficult to clean. I am so glad we changed it for the Cat Mate, very quiet and so easy to clean, and the cats Love it. It holds about 2 ltrs of water and has a handy high low water level mark, also this fountain can be topped up directly with a jug, our old one you had to remove a water container to top up, Fantastic product Thanks Zooplus.
My Sphynx boys love this fountain. Previously Peanut would 'slap' the water in the old style water bowl to make it move before he drank, even when it was freshly down. With this fountain no water splashing, no mess, I know they are drinking plenty of water, and maintenance is minimal (once weekly clean and water change, once monthly filter change). Its also virtually silent.
I have 3 Ragdoll cat s one who is only a kitten n they all love drinking from this.. easy to maintain. . Definitely worth buying. .
