To want to drink...

From the cats' water fountain?

I won't. But it does look sort of tempting.

Ooh! Beats turning the bath tap on and off!

Aww that's really cute smile

Got it for about £25.

Apparently they'll drink more and maintain fabulous kidney function.

I don't have a water fountain. They officially own me.

Ooh I want one for my cats! Where is it from?
I'm in love with your cats too, so cute.
Can I just have your fountain and cats instead?

@Foniks in spite of their tendency to wake me at 5am and either watch me wee or meow at the door while I do so, I'm attached to the little buggers. grin

I got the fountain on Amazon from Catit. I highly recommend!

That's really cool!

MiddleClassProblem Fri 23-Jun-17 00:57:53

Get another for you! Save on the washing up

TheCatOfAthenry Fri 23-Jun-17 14:00:10

@MiddleClassProblem I may have to! blush

I want this for my cats!

We bought a fountain similar to this when one of ours ended up at the vets with an obstructed bladder.

Little bloody dumpling didn't use it and started drinking from my water glass instead!

Reow Fri 23-Jun-17 14:23:03

Ooh that looks nice. My cat doesn't like water, I wonder if that would interest him more. Though he'd probably knock it over and try to kill it.

He does have a biscuit tree that he loves though.

TheCatOfAthenry Fri 23-Jun-17 14:24:27

@Reow the reservoir is 3 litres and I'm not sure it'd be too easy to knock. Easy on the electricity too!

SaucyJack Fri 23-Jun-17 14:27:09

Reminds me of this;

MiddleClassProblem Fri 23-Jun-17 14:32:53

3 litres is a lot of wine

TheCatOfAthenry Fri 23-Jun-17 14:35:54

@SaucyJack it really is a similar case. We have cat trees and posts everywhere. Cookie even has her own sofa. blush

A friend I hadn't seen in a while described our house as "cat oriented" and made a hmmface.

My little guy wants an upgrade!

DeleteOrDecay Fri 23-Jun-17 14:38:53

I love these and I've been so tempted to get one for DecayCat but at the moment he seems happy with his £1.99 ceramic bowl from zooplusblush

GirlOnATrainToShite Fri 23-Jun-17 14:41:19

My cat needs this in her life - where did you get it?!

GirlOnATrainToShite Fri 23-Jun-17 14:41:47

Sorry just read blush

What is this biscuit tree you speak of?

I bought one of those fountains a week ago and neither DP or I have seen any of the little sods anywhere near it yet.

They do have several water bowls too that they ignore in favour of puddles of putrid water in the garden so no bowel problems hopefully but one of ours is so obsessed with drinking out of my water glass (they like to be able to see out of the sides apparently) that buying some wide water glasses (or glass bowls) for her to drink out of is on my to do list for the weekend.

Mine doesn't like drinking water, but if I wake in the night I'll find her on the bedside table lapping away at MY 'sleepy' herbal tea.

MiddleClassProblem Fri 23-Jun-17 15:08:20

Crunchymum a tree that grow custard creams would be amazing

Brilliant! grin
Am sharing that right away: anyone experienced in the mysterious ways of cats has thought similar, even if funds don't stretch to an iPad and yurt.
