Belly Up To The Cat Bar

Hi everyone, Katie here.

Last week our friends at Hauspanther (you know, the cool kitty site with all the hip and modern kitty gear) sent us an email about Drinkwell's brand new ceramic Pagoda Fountain. If I had a drink for every time I told Glogirly to get me a fountain...well, I'd have my own private Betty Ford suite.

But FINALLY, thanks to Hauspanther, she found just the right design.

Waffles Too immediately bellied up to the bar. It took him awhile to realize this was a DRINKING fountain, not a WADING fountain.  There were a few HBO words and a bunch of paper towels.

I approached with caution.  Had to watch my back for incoming fire. 

But guess what...We LOVE it!  No more tussles in the bathtub, fighting over the dribbling faucet. We can come and go as we please. And a certain *someone* can't sniff my tail and drink at the same time.  Glogirly says that if I drink more water I'll be healthier and it might even be easier for me to lose that last pound I'm working on.  

Still, I can think of about 7-8 pounds I'd like to shed.

I read the email about this fountain too, and I'm going to have to take another look at it after looking at your fabulous pics!

Is there a lot maintenance involved in this particular model?

Katie and Glogirly said...

I'm not sure on maintenance yet...just plugged in in yesterday. : )
But it's all ceramic, so will be easy to wipe out. It's got a charcoal filter that is replaceable...or you can still run it without it. There's a small rubber piece inside that protects and keeps the pump cord in place. That's the only piece that looks like the water might be hard on it. They say to clean once a week...we'll see if I keep that up! haha!

But I LOVE how it looks. It's very nice. Kind of loud...not used to that yet. But the kitties LOVE it!
: )

Michelle Spayde said...

We're going to check back in with you and see how the maintenance is going!
HBO words? LOL! We have two older foster kittens that are obsessed with running water, so that's another consideration! They're a black and white sister brother duo, so maybe they would be purrfect in every way (just like Katie)! :-)

Katie and Glogirly said...

Oh I should clarify what I mean by loud. The motor is very quiet. I've just never had a fountain before, so I'm not used to the sound of the water yet. ; )

Our Mama just got us a fountain but it isn't as cool looking as this one but we sure do like it.

Mama here, I went for a stainless steel one for easy cleaning but I wish I had seen this one first, I like the design.

We love the fountain! Our mommy has an indoor garden pond we drink out of. You'll get used to the flowing water.

GizmoGeodog said...

I saw the fountain at Global Pet Expo and thought it was pretty cool...Glad it's working out for you Katie

That is a very cool fountain. We have one too (a different style) and Ernie thinks it's a toy.


Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

That fountain looks pawsome.

D Ma said...

the best news is you don't even have to worry about drinking in moderation.

katsrus said...

This look likes a fountain my older kitty could drink from. He loves water out of the faucet. Really nice design.

Very stylish. I like it! purrs said...

Good looking fountain- but the best part is seeing Katie and Waffles inches apart, going about their business!

Jacqueline said...

We have a fountain and we love it, but that one is really cool!...Happy weekend, sweet friends...xoxo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Selina said...

Oh we wanted one but by the time MomKatt got to Amazon they were sold out!! :(

7-8 lbs? Now WHAT could you possibly mean???


Two French Bulldogs said...

Ginger Jasper said...

That looks like the Rolls Royce of fountains. I love it.. Hugs GJ x

Patty Woodland said...

That is a very cool fountain. Sherpa would throw his toys in it much like he throws his toys in the erm, toilet.

meowmeowmans said...

Oooooooh! That fountain is great. We have been thinking of getting one for (Mr. water-obseesed) Moose!

CATachresis said...

Austin is very uninterested in running water. I might have to introduce him!

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

That is an awesome looking fountain! My human is voting for all our friends (along with myself)!

Brian said...

Inlove the looks of that one and it is now on my wishlist!

Mariodacat said...

Great looking fountain. I love my Drinkwell, and do drink lots more water than I used to drink. Enjoy!

Ann Staub said...

Oooo - it's a beautiful fountain! Love it!

Janet Blue said...

Wow, Mommy and all of us love that fountain. She's been looking at them forever, but they were all plastic. We don't do plastic! Mom stopped with the very first cat, Skooter, as he got acne on his chin from the plastics. We're definitely going to check these out. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

Coralee Robichaud said...

That is way too cool!!! Lucky kitties!

Stacy Hurt said...

We are shocked that it's not pink. Really! AND The Ornj Mutant (Ollie) still wades around the waterbowl (and even still gets that same goofy expression that W2 has) so we think it's the Ornj. That must be it.

Good luck and our sympathies Dear Katie

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Wow, that's an awesome fountain!

ABBY said...

That is a fabulous fountain!!!

Derby, Ducky said...

Neat fountain. We are good drinking kitties, just from a regular bowl.

Prancer Pie said...

We love this fountain, too. We are concerned about "wading" issues also. Did the peeps change Waffles first name to something HBO?

Noir the Texas Tabby said...

I LOVE the looks of this fountain--and I will pester Tommy to get us one, cuz I think we'd all be happier pride of kitties with this-plus I think it quite fetching!


Cathy Keisha said...

Nice fountain. Enjoy the H2O.

The Cat From Hell said...

Katie! Wow! That is one cool fountain!
