Your beloved cat needs a water fountain. But how can you find the right one? This blog discusses everything about choosing the right cat water fountain.
Why Does Your Cat Need a Water Fountain
Cats are natural hunters, and they find moving water more attractive and exciting. However, due to the possibility of water containing harmful contaminants, a cat's instinct may tell him that consuming standing water is not safe.
Therefore, cats prefer drinking moving water from a tap or dipping their paws in water, setting it in motion. Your cat will be more interested in drinking if his drinking water moves.

How to Choose a Cat Water Fountain
Before choosing a cat water fountain, consider the following;
Because cats get scared easily, it is best to go for a water fountain with a quiet pump. The silent pump won't frighten your cat and also encourage drinking.
Finding a water fountain model that is easy to maintain is essential. However, getting a model, you must take apart before cleaning it with brushes and other cleaning equipment is not ideal. Instead, go for something you can easily wash or even put in a dishwasher.
The tank size affects the amount of water poured into the fountain. Therefore, it is best to go for a fountain with a large capacity. The larger the tank size, the less often you need to replace water.
How to Maintain Your Cat Water Fountain
As the water in the fountain evaporates, you have to top off the tank with some more. Depending on the reservoir size, you may need to do this every day or once every few days.
When cleaning the fountain, ensure you follow manufacturer instructions — leaving the fountain for long before cleaning aids fungi and slime growth.
In addition, most fountains have carbon filters requiring timely changes. It is, therefore, best to shop for replacements.
How to Train Your Cat to Use a Fountain
Training your cat to use a water fountain takes time and patience. Your cat may be confused by the device at first. During training, don't take their old water bowl away immediately. Instead, allow your cat to sniff the fountain when you bring it home. Afterward, add water but don't turn on the fountain to let your cat get used to the new system.
You can turn on the fountain when you feel your cat is ready. Even if they are nervous, you can give them a little time. It is best to let your cat approach the fountain on his own instead of being forced.
The next step is supervision. Never leave your cat unattended whenever you turn on the fountain. It is also ideal to look out for signs that the new fountain overwhelms your cat. Your cat will most likely be scared when overwhelmed.
Some signs of a cat being scared include cowering, acting defensively, hunching their back, meowing loudly, and laying their ears back. If you notice any of these signs, turn off the fountain and put it away to try again at a different time.
