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;

Pump

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.

Low-maintenance

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.

Capacity

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.

The PAWAii Cat Water Fountain

PAWAiiC offers two types of cat water fountains.

PAWAii UV Sterilization Cat Fountain

High Sterilization Rate

The UV sterilization cat fountain has a built-in UV germicidal lamp. This lamp delivers a high sterilization rate, up to 98.79%, keeping the water in the fountain pure and sterile.

Multi-Stage In-Depth Filtration

The water fountain system is automatic and has a 4-stage filter system that delivers fine filtration techniques to circulate soft water. The filter also reduces hair every four hours, providing your cat with clean drinking water. It is advisable to replace the filter element every month to keep the water fresh.

Smart Lighting Reminder

The water fountain has four smart lighting modes. These modes effectively remind you of the machine's current operating status. For example, the system will indicate when the water level is too low, or the filter needs changing. In addition, the water dispenser automatically stops running at a low water level, prompting you to add water.

Quiet Operation

The fountain delivers a silent operation due to its silent spring hole, silent water pump, and silent water flow design. You are assured of sleeping without disturbance because the system works without producing noise.

Large Capacity

The UV sterilization cat fountain has a 68 oz capacity. Consequently, a single refill is enough to meet your cat's drinking water needs for 5 to 9 days. In addition, you don't have to worry about refilling the fountain whenever you take business trips or short vacations. For maximum use, it is advisable to replace the filter every month.

PAWAii Wireless Water Pump Cat Water Fountain

Wireless Water Pump Design

The pet water dispenser has a safe and stable wireless water pump design that prevents water leaks and electrical hazards. Also, cleaning this fountain is much easier.

Water-electricity Separation and Easy Cleaning

The main body of the water storage tank is utterly separate from the power supply. Consequently, there is more space in the tank and no exposed metal points. In addition, you can easily and safely wash the dispenser with water.

Multi-stage Filtration for Thorough Purification

The system has a three-dimensional activated carbon filter that traps food residues and cat hair. It also reduces organic matter, and residual chlorine, while absorbing odors. Consequently, your pets get to drink clean and healthy water.

Silent Operation Up to 30db

The water dispenser has a low operating noise of as low as 30db. Therefore, you and your cat can enjoy a good night's sleep without disturbances.

Homeowners get irritated by lingering cat smells. And sometimes, the home residents become used to the scent and no longer notice. However, guests and potential buyers will notice the smell. Moreover, cats find their smells offensive. Cats usually use urine to mark territories.

These behavioral issues include agitation, aggression, or peeing in inappropriate places like outside their litter boxes.
