Running water is often more enticing to a cat - it's probably somewhat instinctual, as running water is the safest kind to drink in the wild.
Since we have one cat (yes, Maxwell, we're talking about you) who refuses to eat anything but dry -- despite our best efforts -- it was important to me that we do everything we could to encourage water consumption.
We've had Drinkwell products for the past two years, starting with the plastic Drinkwell 360 and then
moving to the ceramic Lotus fountain.
My only complaint with the plastic fountain was that it had a lot of moving parts, and the fountain itself took some time to clean properly. But it was important to me that we have a source of running water in the home to encourage our herd to drink, so the cleaning was a pain -- but worth it.
Then at BlogPaws this year, PetSafe, the makers of Drinkwell fountains, held a drawing and I won their ceramic Pagoda fountain.

I love it. It's a breeze to clean, has very few parts, and because it's ceramic it stays cleaner and the water stays fresher longer.

I'm thrilled I won this in their giveaway at BlogPaws. They didn't ask me to review their product - the drawing came with absolutely no strings attached - but I am happy to do so. Especially since I think it's important that we do everything we can to keep our feline friends well-watered!
