Drinkwell Stainless Multi-Pet Pet Fountain #ChewyInfluencer Review
What is your biggest concern as a pet parent? As Mom to Tsunami and Magellan, my two majestic Maine Coon Cats, I am always worried about them being hydrated and getting enough water to drink. I have read that a cat’s body is made up of 80% water (compared to 60% in humans), yet cats have a low thirst drive, making it challenging for them to stay completely hydrated under optimal conditions.
Ideally, cats and dogs should drink a minimum of one ounce water per pound of body weight per day. If you have a active cat – live in a particularly hot climate like we do – or your cat has a health condition, their need for water may increase.
Most pet owners make it a point to provide their cats with a fresh bowl of water at mealtimes – but as the water sits out between meals, it becomes as appealing to them as a glass of water sitting out for long periods of time would be to us humans!
How can you get your cats to drink more water? Many cats (including ours) love drinking fresh running water. For instance, Tsunami and Magellan have trained us to leave a faucet running for them at all times so that they can have access to clean, cold water whenever they like!
Perhaps a better alternative is to provide them with their own personal drinking fountain! Over the years, many of our cats (including Tsunami) have fallen in love with the wonderful line of pet fountains from Drinkwell – so we were thrilled when Chewy.com sent the Royal Taste Testers a brand new Drinkwell Stainless Multi-Pet Pet Fountain to put through the paces!
The Drinkwell Stainless Steel Multi-Pet Pet Fountain is designed to increase your dog’s and cat’s thirst drive by mirroring a natural water source instead of a stagnant bowl. This fountain holds one gallon of water and has a few cool features, including a free-falling, 360-degree access stream of fresh water, a receiving ramp and adjustable flow control that reduces spashing, and controls that let you determine how many streams of water your fountain will provide. You control the flow and sound of the water (the lowest flow is very quiet – the higher flow provides a waterfall sound and some splash outside of the fountain). Some assembly is required.
Magellan was not sure what to make of his new water fountain at first (Did a space craft land on the royal dining table? Where’s my Chewy treat!) and he eyed it for quite some time, but when since I did not seem alarmed by its presence, he eventually munched on some kibble, took a drink, then stretched out and posed for some pictures.
It took Tsunami quite some time to discover the fountain as he’s been hanging out in the basement where it’s cool during the heat of day, but his eyes lit up and he took a long drink out of it as soon as he encountered it! Magellan watched him with great interest (he’d hate to admit it, but he is often seen emulating everything his older brother does!)
The Drinkwell Stainless Multi-Pet Pet Fountain makes a great addition to your home – we give it four paws and two thumbs up at Create With Joy!
