Jake’s Drinkwell Plantinum Pet Fountain
The difference between the Catit fountain and the Drinkwell Platinum is that the Drinkwell fountain operates more like a faucet.Some cats (like Jake) prefer to drink from a stream of water like this. So here’s a quick rundown:
• Both fountains filter water and add oxygen.
• The Drinkwell holds one full gallon of water so it doesn’t require as frequent refilling as the Catit which has a three liter capacity.
• The Catit is a little easier to clean (I think) and has a more eye pleasing design in my opinion but it really comes down to how your cat prefers to drink water. (Jake prefers the Drinkwell but Micah likes both)
• The Drinkwell utilizes a stream of water while the Catit has water that runs over a plastic dome into a bowl.
We put the Drinkwell fountain in the family room and this new location combined with the novelty of running water makes it the main attraction in the house. After meals there’s a queue of cats waiting to get a turn to drink. All in all both fountains get plenty of use which is what really all that matters.
