We got a PetMate - I find it easy to take apart and clean thoroughly every weekend. Mika prefers the water running down the ramp and Bijou drinks from the bowl.

i don't have the Drinkwell, but i have a CatIt & a FreshFlow. the cats & i prefer the FreshFlow. it's easier to take apart & clean, & it's quieter. that's why i like it. they just seem to drink from it more often than the CatIt.

I have the Drinkwell, Petmate Fresh Flow and the CatIt.

My cats and I prefer the Drinkwell. Petmate would rank second and CatIt come in a definite last.

Many of my cats like to drink from the stream.

The newest model of the Drinkwell, (the Platinum), looks like it is a really great product.

We have a PetMate FreshFlow. Polly drinks from the bowl, and Prego drinks from the very top of the ramp, where the water first comes out. It's too cute.

I like the Petmate Fresh Flow Fountain the best...

I have the Petmate Fresh Flow, but I believe cats that like to drink out of faucets would prefer the Drinkwell.

I have a Petmate Freshflow and there are no complaints from my kitties

I had the pet mate & after 6 years it leaked everywhere so now I have the Catit. I actually like the Catit better and so do my cats, but that's just our opinons. One thing to look at is what you think your cats will like the best. Mine love to drink from the dome of the Catit, but no one knows your kitties the way you do.

Is it anything like the hydroponic catgrass pod for the Drinkwell? I just started using one, and so far Ginger loves having her cat grass in her water dish!

That's pretty cool! I also grow grass for my cats, but I just use small clay pots and regular soil.

I just ordered a Petmate Freshflow for Duke because he keeps drinking from the pond. The filter on the top is a large UV filter for an outdoor pond, but we bring them in during the winter months. The water empties back into the pond in two streams and he's always drinking from it. I don't think it should cause any problems, but JIK...

OMG that is fantastic! My recent attempt at growing cat grass resulted in gravel and oats all over the bathroom floor although surprisingly it still grew after I'd swept it all up and put it back in the container - which Radar knocks over and makes a mess with every time he eats the grass - this looks as if it would solve the problem, especially since it got knocked over while he was trying to get to the tap to drink

Are they the ones made out of tights? I was thinking of making some of those for my lot - as a bit of amusement (for me, anyway!)

I haven't seen the catit, but I do have the drinkwell. My kitties absolutely love it!!! The are definitely drinking more water throughout the day because of it. I notice that whenever I use water bowls as a substitute, they never drink as much.
