Happy & Polly is a small business with an incredible collection of cutesy cat and dog products, from carriers and scratching posts to water fountains and even apparel.
I’ve been using this cactus water fountain for a couple of months now and absolutely love it. I’ve used the cheap plastic kind in the past and noticed that 1) they get dirty fast and are annoying to clean, and 2) cats can knock them over or push them around. This ceramic fountain has solved all my problems, and the best part is that both of my cats actually love drinking out of it! It’s hefty and doesn’t shift around as they are trying to drink, and there have been no attempts to dismantle it either. It gives off a good flow from either side of the cactus in the middle, and my cats either like to nibble on that or drink around the hole the water flows into. This fountain is also super quiet, though you’ll notice it making a bit of a noise when the water gets low (which helps remind you to clean it out and put in fresh water), and it shuts off entirely when out of water for safety. Ample hydration is *so* important for cats, especially if they’re mostly on a dry food diet, so it’s worth it to invest in a proper watering fountain that’s built to last. And this one is.
Promising review: “This fountain is adorable, first of all. It’s also incredibly quiet. However, my biggest challenges with a water fountain is my one cat who tries to dismantle every one we try. I had hoped given that this is ceramic and heavier, she’d have a harder time knocking it over or flipping the lid. We’ve had this in use for about a week, and so far, so good! Even better, she actually likes to drink from it. It’s a similar flow to a faucet, which is her favorite water source. I also think because most of the water is under the lid, it doesn’t get as filled with fur and food as other open bowl fountains do, so the water seems a lot cleaner, too. Very happy with this purchase!” —K.H.
