Catit Design Senses Fountain
|Product Name:||Design Senses Foutain|
|Capacity:||2.9 Litre (100 oz)|
|Price:||$ / $$$|
|Color:||White with Blue|
This fountain features a minimalist design and a large surface for the water to flow over to increase aeration. This water fountain is part of a larger cat-care system that includes an interactive feeding system, a massage section, an exercise toy circuit and a cooling pad.
I have not seen one of these in person, but the fountain, and the system, looks like something I would enjoy if I was a cat! This fountain is attractive, very quiet and affordable.
Water Capacity and Holding
This fountain has a 2.9 Litre (100 oz) capacity which should reduce how often you need to refill it compared to other cat fountains.
The filter is easy to replace and but must be done by disassembling the fountain. This is super easy to do, just remove the top and swap out the filter while you are giving your fountain a cleaning. Catit offers two options: Foam/Carbon Filter replacements (which removes debris and absorbs impurities) (CLICK HERE) and Water Softening Filter replacement (which additionally removes magnesium and calcium from the water to reduce the risk of lower urinary tract diseases (CLICK HERE). The Water Softening filters require less frequent changes than the Foam/Carbon filters.
Cleaning and Disassembly
When taken apart, this fountain has a number of pieces, so you may need your instructions the first time you put it back together. The majority of it can be cleaned in the dishwasher. The pump will need to be hand-cleaned as per instructions. Cleaning should be done once a week or so, similar to other water fountains.
PROS: Simple, modern design, a bubbling water spout in the centre and a unique surface for cats to drink from. Buyers report a quiet pump because of where it is located. Great height for cats to drink from. Two levels of filtration to pick from.
CONS: The fountain needs to be taken apart fully to change the filter or clean.
OVERALL: An attractive, quiet fountain with lots of surface water for cats to lap up.
